yes, But what items would actually go well with malady now... NONE
They just removed 2 On-hit/ AS Items for ON-hit builds


We should be happy for this. MBR was a trap item - it is never, in any circumstances, the buy, as any character or against any opponent. If you were building this item, you've been weaker each game as a result. Same with Ionic spark (except maybe for Shen or Kayle).

Or volibear, or shen, or ww, or irelia.

The top volibear player list ionic as core. In S2 worlds a shen bought an ionic and used it to make a game winning play.

The fact is ionic is viable for any champ with a strong on hit ability. You build ionic and witts and you do pleanty of damage for cheap leaving the rest for tank items.

Why would Kayle want Ionic Spark?

The only viable to play her was to build generic AD Carry. AP as Support, maybe, but that's it.

I doubt it's the real reason. imo riot team couldn't buff madred because it would be very op.

I'm pretty sure the real reason is madred was actually a pretty strong item, but too many players considered it weak so they prefered to remove the item instead of buffing an already strong item.

That's like dfg, dfg was completly unused. it totally didnt deserved the buff because of how strong it was, but look, now it is weaker than prebuff and is still bought by a lot of people.

I don't understand the point in removing Ionic Spark. If someone wants to spend their gold on it, why not? The only justification from the devs is its worthless. Who cares? Let people play how they want to. It allowed for interesting builds, ie. Wits End + Ionic Spark on Irelia.

does this mean you are removing kitaes and ionic from dominion as well? because frankly it wouldn't change much no one get's them ever and they could use replacing
