Why does it give mana again D: People like Rumble loved when they changed it to not have catalyst. Why take it away from him again!


Likely part of the reason for the change.

it is by far the most overpowered item in the game the second they gave it % of max health passive. All mages will still buy it regardless of mana being on it

edit: i feel like adding more reasons why its so broken

magic pen
% max health
high ap
CDR

thats like tri-force on steroids for mages

It's designed to be overpowered because AP mages are underpowered on TT.

They are trying to balance TT with items, torch is one of them. (Witchcap another)

A non-mathematical reason for the cost change:

singed was buying it before rod of ages (as his damage source).
Nuff said

mage will still need to build it to compete with bruisers even if it has wasted stats, it's too good on them to pass, Kind of like why Wrengar andLee sue triforce despite sheen ahving a mana component

Its no longer worth it at all. Do not build into it unless its your last item.
