There is no possible context that could redeem tankbusta.

Please don't.

Minor spoiler: Blade of the Ruined King and Wicked Hatchet are actually Season 3 items.
During development, we actually had a very powerful version of Madred's called Tankbusta that completely destroyed the Bruiser meta (yes, it can be done!). However, we found that there was a lot of crossover between Takbusta and the S3 items, so we scrapped Tankbusta and brought over the S3 items instead.

BotRK is definitely weaker than Tankbusta, but we'll separate them out again and give TT its own replacement if necessary.


How dare you take an item with such an awesome name out of the game...

That hits too close to home good sir, and I demand that you reverse said decision this minute!

The thing about Hatchet is the duration is really short. You need to stick to one target to make any use of the effect. Nobody is going to stand in Fiddle's face while he drains them, that thing hurts.
And don't expect a ranged carry to pick it up very often, the offensive stats it gives are quite small.


Fiddlesticks is forced to stand still whilst draining. This means that the Hatchets de-buff can be applied at all times. His healing will be cut in half and you will be able to out-damage the remaining amount of his healing.

Fiddle is dead.

Am I like, the only person who thinks Hatchet on SR is just a completely stupid idea?

Wait, holy ****. A Tankbusta is a unit from WH40K.
WH40K wiki describes them as " specialist Ork warriors who are fixated with the undeniable thrill of scoring a direct hit on an enemy tank". Am I right in saying that this is where the name comes from?

Is Wickd Hatchet better in Summoner's Rift? Like boosted stats? It's pretty expensive for what it can do in my opinion.

Out of curiosity, Nome, why was it decided that BotRK would deal percent current health and not max health?

I don't know. You'd have to ask Xypherous, since this falls in the realm of S3 items and not TT.
