After getting my standard aegis, starks, atmas, sightstone. I'm hard pressed to figure out what to buy next if the game actually does last longer than that. I just decided on an IE but it didn't get finished of course considering 4k is still hard to come buy even with being moneybags plank.

Any suggestions anyone?

No, it's definitely not 60 AD from Atmas.

Frozen mallet

Almost every other support outclasses supportplank, including Yorick

1.5% of 3k hp is 45, my math was off there, but giving yourself an extra 45 armor, 15% crit chance, ontop of 45 extra AD outclasses frozen mallet in every aspect as far as effective health goes at 3k hp.

Edit: also why do you feel that support plank isn't viable? Is it because he's almost exactly like nunu except he does physical damage? Sorry my friend who's afraid to show his elo so he posts on a smurf account because he was quite possibly one of the people posting things like vi 26 and whatnot.

1) Support GP is not viable
2) Support GP is not remotely like Nunu
3) Atmas is not remotely viable on any Support
4) You don't even have 2k base HP at level 18, why would you base an item choice off of having 3k HP by level 13-14?

when I main support i get philostone and sightstone early, then go up to ruby sightstone. Then I locket of the solari and aegis of the legion in the order it would work best with the team. Then tanky supports like taric, ali, leona I get warmogs or mallet. Otherwise I increase the amount of wards I buy. Then probably during my aegis and solari i had gotten boots of speed and just now I would go up to mobility or cd reduction. Then I should have 1-2 item slots and I buy hella wards/exilirs/oracles along with possibly frozen heart or GA.

1) Support GP was played in the highest levels in s2, S3 I have no idea
2) Half true, the buff is alright.. not good, but alright
3) it's dirt cheap for what you get, and for a support yorick/gp it's not bad
