But there's a deep problem nobody noticed: there are only two other items with both damage and crit chance, and neither can be stacked efficiently.
False.

You end up paying something like 150 gold for Infinity Edge's passive when the combine bonus stats are taken into account. Any item that's near or below cost for its raw stats is quite stackable.

Well, stacking IE isn't gold efficient compared to base items as you said (150 gold to combine with the wasted passive of stacking), but it gives you pound for pound the most DPS for your item slot (supposing you have a decent amount of attack speed and they don't have rediculous amounts of armor).

I mean, 5 infinity edges by themselves gives you 1000 damage per hit XD.

Never would have thought 180 HP is worth 18% crit.

As far as items that have unique passives go Infinity is probably one of the best to stack since, once again, the effective combine cost is only around 150 gold. By the time the game is late enough that you would be considering the purchase of a second IE 150 gold is pretty much meaningless.

Also, internal (forced) synergy isn't necessarily a good thing. Atma's is cost effective at a little over 1000 HP and, as I recall, the bonus armor is free at right around 2000 HP. Atma's is good on any champ that wants AD and crit, but depending on your HP it'll decide when you want to pick the thing up.

Chunky deeps want it early. More fragile deeps want it late. Really that simple.
