Ohmwrecker was it the price for the ability?

It's definitely somewhat weak - we'll address this when we get the chance but community feedback was very polarized around the item when we first introduced it on PTR.

you should add an aura to that item that reduces armor penetration to the enemies

I don't feel towers are strong enough late game that a 2.5 second disable is worth the cost.

I really like the idea of Ohmwrecker, but for a support item, its too much.

Ohmwrecker was an unnecessary kneejerk reaction to that one single M5/CLG.eu game.

If m5 had played it properly, Ohmwrecker wouldn't exist.

It has a niche? I didn't even think it was that popular.

You seem to be confusing the name of an item with its function.

Isn't Ohmwrecker meant for your top/jungler so they can backdoor?

I think the main problem is that it doesn't compete with Sunfire and Randuin's in terms of its stats.

Maybe have that new Plate of the Warmage build into Ohmwrecker, so that there is an support item that builds from Plate of the Warmage (because, frankly, armor and AP is awesome on supports - btw). Although, the slight issue with PoW on supports would be getting stacks. Plate of the Warmage + Cloth armor, or Chain vest, or Philo (I don't think we need another Kage's build). (Heck, or even Null-magic... supports need another MR item other than Twin Shadows, they have so many armor choices).
