Is it really worth building that Kage's or Philo stone on your support? I'm just wondering because it seems like they take way too long to pay off.

Should I just use my gold on better stuff in lane?

Yes. They will eventually pay for themselves and start to make you more money.

I wouldnt build kage's on a support, but thats just me. Philo is still worth it insomuch that it builds into shurelia's. That is almost mandatory on most supports.

you have paid for the philo stone the second you bought it if you have plans to build Reverie.

The crit one is, cause it gives u extra gold per kill as well, and it upgrades to shiv which is a decent item

But wouldn't it be better just to get something like a Chalice instead of a philo stone?

More mana, more resists, and it builds into something really really nice.

The gp10 items supports buy do 2 things:
1) They build into the items supports want
2) They provide stats that supports want early on like mp5 or some small ap

The gp10 portion is just to help make those items more cost efficient to get. Typically most gp10 items won't pay off except in very slow games, but they're still worth getting because they have good stats and solid upgrade paths.

If you're a support and don't get a philo for... now I feel like an idiot 'cause I can't remember what the speed boost item it upgrades to is called... you're making a mistake.


But sightstone gives a greater gp10 equivalency than gp10 items right now, so I would recommend that first - THEN your gp10 items... if you can afford it.

philo stone will pay for itself in 12 minutes.
