I honestly think that starting to build your core items is much more cost efficient. I understand it at the start, or maybe if you are forced back with not enough for anything but a dorans, but why bother getting 2?

it gives you slightly more health and makes you harder to kill. rings also give you mana regen if you are going for something with high AP first.

I don't build Doran's at all most of the time.

It used to be good stacking Dorans. But then they nerfed health... And sustain... etc.... Only stack if you're seriously behind.

Those items are REALLY cost effective, while they don't build to anything, they help you to maintain your early game power/help you with early game. Of course, you are using like 900 or something gold, but you aren't as squishy, have more damage and have more mana regen or sustain or life per hit.

blades are not very good

but rings are useful for mana-heavy spammers in lane phase

If we are in lane and both have to be with ~500g. I buy a blade and you buy a LS / something else I will destroy you.

Having a blade gives you sustain, health, and that extra damage. You have to buy in order not to get pushed out, less you can stay in lane long enough to get a better item... if I have 800 I'll usually get vamp scepter.

But wouldn't using that 900 for your first big item be better, because while they have dorans you would have an item like blasting wand, so then you can soon build into like a rab?
