Yes, exactly. Here: http://www.surrenderat20.net/2013/01...te-2.html#more

They raise the price but we still only get to place 2 wards from Sightstone. Who else buys SS except supports? And who is starved for gold more than supports? This is a direct nerf to supports. So much for alleviating support gold woes.

hmmm i dont know. making the order like that may work. Its easier to have the gold for a 475 items then go out and do work and come back and get another 475 items than it is to try to spend 700 for an item that dose almost nothing out front when you can buy wards around items purchases to make you stronger and help your adc get kills and get more gold and just do it again. On the other hand if you are losing lane you cant justify a ss when you need to be stronger so you have to get avoid it anyways. Adding a ruby crystal into the mix gives you more choices and it also gives more choices to the jungler and tops. its have its something to test out.

I don't buy normal wards any more. I start with no wards unless its some huge early ganker in jungler I need to watch for, then I buy a sightstone the first time I go back and I never buy a ward through the entire game.

Once you upgrade it you can constantly have 3 wards out all the time, and to me that is enough. To me it isn't the supports sole job to ward the map. Other people can ward some times too. If you gut a ruby sightstone and keeping those wards active all the time, you are doing your job.
