It's a decent situational item. I bought it on ad Kogmaw the other day and combined with my Last Whisper I was shredding HP like no other.

I mean yes... you obviously are throwing in autos but you need the high raw AD from bloodthirster and the utility + dmg from cleaver to shred teams with your ult.


Her ult does nothing with BOTRK. I generally save it for late game depending on how tanky the enemy team is going.


Black Cleaver, Bloodthirster, Boots 2, Guardian Angel, BoTRK, Situational item (generally IE) for a full build vs fairly tanky enemy team.

Works great if you're fighting health stackers (BOTRK + her W is awesome for shutting down mundo/swain style champs)

BoRK is the following:
Multiple players on the enemy team have warmogs, buy this item or let someone else play ADC.

Especially if you have the burst kit to finish someone off. Combo with a Sona / Taric.

I'd need to try it.

Ooooh that's interesting. The only ADC I've ever really played is Corki, but he feels really weak right now, so I've been looking for a new one to play until he gets some help. Was going to try Caitlyn, but I do have Graves gathering dust. Gonna try him with it.

I usually buy this as my 3rd item on Kog Maw. I like to start IE for the massive damage, than phantom dancer because hes slower than a slug and lead into Ruined King for full on face melting action with W activated.

I love it. It's great for Baron, Dragon, tanky enemy champs, lifesteal, and kiting.

Stacking the Jarvan passive would be my guess.

I'm not challenger tier (yet!) but I too enjoy purchasing it on J4.

J4 has naturally high attack speed thanks to his E, so he can make better use of BRK without buying any AS than most other champions.

It is good, but my problem with it is that it's not the anti-hp-stacking item we needed it to be to replace Bloodrazor. Having no AS on an on-hit item feels pretty lousy (in fact it's the *only* real on-hit item not to have AS on it), especially for an item that should be a counterbuild... it sucks having to commit at least one other item slot to AS just to make it worthwhile as a counter.

I think it's good, it's just that we need a Bloodrazor in SR (whether it's madred's or kitae's), because BotRK was never a suitable replacement, and it's part of the reason health stacking is a problem now
