Pure raw AP.

AA staff getting buffed and DFG is now viable on most champs. Is deathcap a good item to rush anymore?

If you don't rush it, then what do you buy on champs like AP sion, AP tf or Brand that used to benefit the most from pure AP...

It's still by far the most cost effective AP item in the game by far (21.3 gold/AP). Morellonomicon, Deathfire, Zhonya's, WotA, Seraph's, & Void Staff are all in the low 30's (30-33). Everything else is pretty close to 40's.

So if you want pure damage then yes, still rush it... more burst on V or LB go deathfire, mana go Morello/Seraph's. Wouldn't go Void, WotA, or Zhonya's first item no matter what though.

I'm finding the rise of "amg AP mid sux" comments coincides almost exactly with the "man I don't buy deathcap anymore" comments, looking at GD trends.

any thoughts?

still, it's pretty stupid imo to get like 190 ap when it used to be 240.

btw I always get deathcap as first, if not second item. But other choices seem to have more utility lately... I mean dfg gives CDR and a pretty awesome active, AA staff gives you a shield once upgraded and probably the highest AP only losing to deathcap (around 120 fully stacked).

Dunno.

I still get it most of the time on AP carries, although usually as a third or forth item except maybe on Annie.

Stop comparing it to the old one, and look at it as if it's never existed: it's the best pure AP item available, yes it is worth getting.

Deathcap multiplicates your ap. Of course it's worth getting. God damn.

It was never a good item to rush it was gotten 2nd or third after an item that had some defensive stats like Athenes roa or wota
