This item was a good addition to the Twisted Treeline and Riot should feel very BAD for removing it.

I agree they shouldn't have removed it, but it needed a stat nerf or cost increase. Hi, here's every stat you could ever possibly want for an AD caster.

They gave us Black Cleaver instead.

Black Cleaver doesn't have spell vamp though

I really want that item back, it was seriously a solid item. AP champs get their deathcap/zhoya's mix but the bruisers don't get any 2 in one item.

APs needed one to stay viable... AD Bruisers and AD Casters didn't ... plain and simple.

RiotNome has said outright that there is 0 intention to re-add LVD in it's old format however they'll repurpose the name and icon for a future item.

And sorry to play the devil's advocate but with all the people QQing about how OP bruisers are, adding something like LVD with BC already in the game would completely break the game type...

Pillager was a poor idea to begin with. The power creep on AD bruisers, especially AD casters, was out of control, and Riot knew it. Yet they came out with an item designed specifically for the currently most overpowered champions in TT. Darius, LeeSin, Olaf, Jax, Jayce, Riven.. these are the champions there were totally out of control for a long while (some still are), and then you create an item just for them, to boost them that much higher...

Seriously, Riot is notoriously incompetent while it comes to game balance of champion or item releases; Van Damm's Pillager is merely another example. They corrected this oversight by its prompt removal. You will not see it come back.
