Okay I feel like we should get an actual mathcraft on here. I was playing Jarvan against zimike's tank Sona (~250 armor) and was doing true damage to him, and he got so mad he allegedly quit Dominion (but I'm sure he'll be back to play Black Cleaver Lulu).

So uh, here's some numbers. Assuming 21 in offense and ArPen marks/quints.

Item specific notes:

0 Cleavers without LW:
100 armor: 100 * .88 * .92 - 24 = 57 armor = 36% damage reduction, from 50%.
150 armor: 150 * .88 * .92 - 24 = 97 armor = 49% damage reduction, from 60%.
200 armor: 200 * .88 * .92 - 24 = 138 armor = 58% damage reduction, from 67%.
250 armor: 250 * .88 * .92 - 24 = 178 armor = 64% damage reduction, from 71%.

DAT ASHE.

Champion specific notes:

25% penetration
Champions: Darius
70 armor (after BC reduction) becomes 43 without LW, and 28 with, prior to flat penetration from # of BCs.
105 armor becomes 64 without LW and 44 with.
140 armor becomes 85 without LW and 55 with.
175 armor becomes 106 without LW and 69 with.
210 armor becomes 128 without LW and 83 with. Therefore, Darius can deal true damage attacks to targets with 300 armor.

15% reduction
Champions: Kayle (at 5 hits), Shyvana, Xin Zhao
100 armor becomes 85 before rest of calculations above.
150→128

250→213
300→255
350→298
400→340

20% reduction

100 armor becomes 80 before rest of calculations above.
150→120
200→160
250→200
300→240
350→280
400→320

25% reduction

150→113
200→150
250→188
300→225
350→263
400→300

400→260
450→293

250→150
300→180
350→210
400→240
450→270
500→300

So, the synopsis of this is that if you're gunning for pure offense, get a LW after your first BC unless you have % reductions/penetrations from other sources, in which case you'll probably want 2 BCs first or possibly 3 depending on how much from the other sources you have (your allies might also contribute theirs). This is good to know, because usually you need some kind of life steal to keep the true damage rolling in throughout the game.

So... yeah. Inb4 the item gets removed in 5 minutes making this thread useless.

Joke build, it is not. Psssst Xypherous.

I'm on vacation until it gets fixed D:
Or maybe I'll just run real fast on Janna occasionally.

Regardless, thanks for the math. Cleavers are dumb.

The math shows cleavers are genius. How else do we make Frozen Heart balanced?

AR needs to be half price,and double effectiveness to counter this at all

Ok, that's rather intimidating.
I knew it was stupid. I knew it was really, really stupid.

But holy **** on a **** sandwich that is just mind-blowingly stupid.

Yeaaah. I'll be joining the "Get First Win IP, GTFO" camp.

Good to hear at least that Nome has developed the power of common sense since the BFT fiasco and is just going with the nuclear hotfix option until he can get us a balanced version.

On the upside, I'm playing a lot of Sejuani since so the most I notice is that the BC Stacking Pantheon in every single game just hurts more than everyone else while I'm trampling him underhoof.

I'll have you all know, you all scared me right the hell out of even playing Dominion this evening.

I actually played SR...

...against bots.

What has this world come to?

For the record, Kog'Maw on TT with Runaan's is a lot of fun.

someone in the DD chat had the audacity to state that "you just need a little more armor than usual to counter it"... LOL
