Playing as an on-hit proc Kog'Maw today made me realize that the lack of BotRK in Dominion really sets you back, since you can't sustain yourself. Kitae's Bloodrazor, while decent, suffers the same issue as Madred's Bloodrazor: penetration woes. Plus, Kitae's doesn't sustain you at all.

I understand there's no Warmog's in Dominion, which BotRK is designed to hard-counter, but it still sucks to not have that sustain item for AS users.

Any reason why, Riot? Too powerful? Kitae's filling the role already?

I don't know but I'd really like to see kitae's get either a rework or just be replaced by BoRK - the SR analog got flat out deleted in S3, and TT's got replaced with BoRK, we're the only one keeping that outdated and crappy item design around. ):

I mentioned this to HaIfhearted actually and his input was "OH GOD BRUISERS" or something to that effect, which I can see. It benefits an already strong class and Ranged AD's really don't want it because they rely on late game multiplicative scaling to kill everything, so that might be why it was left out.

Also, on hit builds deal magic damage, so an item that deals Physical damage that tries to have synergy with Magic Damage is a bit odd.

BoRK isn't really for on-hit builds.

BoRK is only better than Bloodthirster if the target has over 3000 HP, which would only be extreme tanks (there's no warmogs here!). It only does current HP, not max HP, so it isn't very good - with the exception of lifesteal and slow. On SR you don't need the slow and you will get bloodthirster on Kog, so ignore BoRK.

Kitae's is a decent item, and also cheaper.

Well, I had a build that would give me over 2.2AS, and I was up against opponents with Frozen Mallets and Black Cleavers, so you can imagine that I'd want a shredder weapon against them. Kitae's works decently enough, but lacks that oh-so-nice sustain.

you all fail and rely on the new items to much.

Kitaes with a wits end on kog maw is strong as it is. And you get a life steal item and boom gg your kog melts all in his path as if they are butter especially with a last whisper.
