+200 Health +50 Attack Damage +10% Cooldown Reduction
UNIQUE: +10 Armor Penetration Passive: Dealing physical damage to an enemy champion reduces their Armor by 6.25% for 4 seconds. This effect stacks up to 4 times.

Why is this bad again? 50 damage + armor pen not enough for the gold or something?

Because if you put in on your bruiser or initiator, the passive stacks on the enemies before the ADC gets into the fight, leading to them doing more damage, and with that item on the bruiser, the ADC can focus more pure damage.

In short, it isn't bad on an ADC. But it's a lot better on a bruiser or initiator.

5 hits for full effect? You'll be dead by then.

Its not a unique passive, wouldnt multiple instances stack?
Sounds like your saying its kind of the same thing as Bulwark. You dont want multiples throughout the team?

Pretty sure they hotfixed it to make it so multiple BCs don't stack...

This and the fact that it is slowly being nerfed to really only benefit certain champs that have abilities that repeatedly proc the armor debuff, i.e. Panth, Garen, Wukong, etc...
