Except the only useful part is the passive.

Nobody wants to pay 2k for an item passive, seeing as how the other half is negated by the previously mentioned penetration.

Why pay 3k for a Bloodthirster when the enemy only takes 50% damage?

True damage is not affected by Armor or Magic Resist. Unless you mean that because his Armor is being lowered enough to take true damage, in which case you're still wrong, since without the penetration you would be taking less damage to the shield.


Morde's shield is always taking in true damage, it isn't affected by armor pen, what aren't you getting?

I know how we can counter AD casters. We just need a mage who has high enough burst to nuke them down, prefferably mostly AOE since many of them survive with invisibility. But the key is, he needs lots and lots of range to be able to fight them without them having a chance to retaliate.

What if they ever got the drop on him? Well lets work some random massive armor buff into his passive, just in case.

Wrong


Morde's shield, as in any shield, they work as extra hp.

So the damage it takes is the same you would take to the hp instead
