THATS RIDICULOUS! That's one of my core items for just about most of my tanks when stacking high health against a magic damage team. Whats not to love about movement speed, health regen and about 100 MR? That's my favorite item when playing malphite against a magic damage team...
because it was too good, plain and simple

Don't implement sightstone. It's a horrible idea. Remove the rest of the gp10 items while you're at it.

Also maybe try addressing the actual cause of all these problems, which is the ridiculous AD carry scaling that comes from crits.
....Its meant to be used during lane phase, and then later upgraded into a support item, such as shurelias(can never spell it) tier, or it may turn into a stronger version of itself. Its only meant to replace wards during lane phase.

The Sight Stone upgrade will be forced to hold and place 5 wards, won't it? Two wards doesn't provide much map control, and if a Support tells the team they can only place down two wards, the team might force them to use up another item slot for more wards if they don't want to carry wards themselves, which is what Support want to avoid. Unless you want Sight stone to be purely an early game type item, late game it might become more trouble than it's worth (once again, the upgrade will need to address this).

I love the sight stone, especially if it is built into something that can still have wards. Mean you don't have to start support with 4 wards since on your first back (or second) you can get the sight stone and start buying actual items. Wards that give some health late game will help supports a ton, and depending on build paths for it possibly junglers as well.

You're smarter than that negative nancy who wants Sightstone to remain unimplemented/gold per 5 removed.

You see the problem of pigeonholing supports is an odd one - mostly because supports are pigeonholed into getting zero items at the moment - due to the high price of consumables.
Aren't you afraid an item like this would be less of a "Make it easier for supports to ward" item and more a "everybody's gonna buy this" item? It pays for itself really fast (about twelve minutes), and to me it seems like there's zero reason to avoid getting this on anyone if you were planning on buying wards regardless. Sure the two-ward limit is a bit annoying, but I'd be willing to accept this limit if it meant free wards for the rest of the game.
