Bloody Hydra, Black Cleaver, Bloodthirster, Frozen mallet and something else will likely become standard on Fiora.

Just a guess though.

SotD isn't exactly what melee carries need anyway.

They need survivability and burst/CC immunity, and they still haven't gotten that.

SotD just turns anyone with high AD into an assassin.



actually theres a item that is made with BF sword and Qss now that seems designed to help melee carries

it grants MS boost when you use the qss part now plus having AD and MR

its 3.. only xinzhao gets 6


how does Xin gets 6 crits?

you activate Three Talon Strike, crit 3 times, and when it wears off (TTS) the SoTD buff is still there for another 3 crits?

damn TTS is really buggy....

also, for the OP, it's not like yuo know...Trondomore has almost full crit chance already...with very few items ~ why would he pick this instead of an item with AS plus, AD...like ghost blade?

The upgraded QSS helps them with that.

A full BKB should NOT be introduced into LoL.

Melee carries dont exactly need it, they already have more than enough damage, but they dont have ways to survive fights.

Also it is a tad too strong right now, mostly if you rush it in lane.

It needs to have a higher cost and the active needs its CD doubled or something, the item could straight up give no stats and it would still be strong.

Tryndamere says its a garbage item on him, so he doesn't care :P


Also name 2 melee carries past Trynd & Master Yi that isn't reliant on HP stacking or a melee caster....

Yup, as a first item it is insanely powerful for lane 'trading'. Interestingly (IMO) is that it actually loses some of its value as the game progresses if you buy crit items since now you would already crit some % of those hits (like how Jayce's W gets less valuable if you get some attack speed).

I actually find SOTD to be a bit lackluster on melee. People just kite you when you use it, which really takes away the BAMBAMBAM feel it's supposed to have.

Its a niche item, and melee carries benefit WAY more from mecurial sword. However, its pretty ****ing fantastic on draven if you start it up while carrying two axes...

You herd it here first. You know people will cry OP they are doing it already


This item gets nerfed cause it is OP.
Maybe it gets more expensive or a higher CD?
But what do you expect? A perfectly balanced item?
There are a lot of OP items and some that are a bit weaker. It is not about the community crying, but how useful the item is in the end.
