Why is no one talking about how amazingly awesome that is.
who needs a deathcap?... Zhonya's all the way.
not to mention how good it is against assassins and AoE teams the meta atm.
Swain is very happy with this.
It offers more AP because it's more expensive.
Let me explain. The combine cost has been decreased (by 130), but it now builds out of needlessly large rod and plate of the warmage, not chain vest.
Plate of the warmage costs 1160 gold, which is 440 more gold.
So you're spending an extra 310 gold on 20 AP (or something close to that).
Not a huge buff, but it means hourglass builds out of a decent midgame item now, which is nice.
Edit: fixed numbers.
What buff? D:
