The way I see is that the are interchangeable items for a 6 item late game adc.
Now BT costs 3200 gold give 100 attack damage and 18% life steal at full stacks
While BoRK costs 3200 gold and gives 40% attack speed 25 damage and 15% life steal
as well as %5 of enemy's health as damage and a active slow/heal/ damaging ability. So there both equal in cost now.
The way I see it is that if the adc has more move based such as Miss Fortune they will favor the BT do to the fact the 100 damage will out scale the 25 damage of the BoRK with her ulti or Q.
How ever some one like Tristana may favor the BoRK because it scales better with her auto attack and her moves do not scale with attack damage.
The Champs differ and this is my opinion on who i will be using each of these items on
BoRK
Ashe
Caitlyn
Kennen (AD)
Kog'maw
Tristana
Twitch
Varus
Vayne

BT
Miss Fortune
Ezreal(could go either because q applies on hit)
Graves
Quinn
Sivir
Corki
Urgot
Draven

Why BT on quinn? I feel she would benefit more from te a
AS and vamp, especially considerig her ult.

What about Vayne? She isn't in either list.

all her moves scale of ad including her passive which most of her damage comes form and the valor form already has a huge buff in attack speed from her w 70%AS that I don't think its necessary to over do the attack speed and just get attack damage

I go Bloodthirster over BotRK mainly because the BotRK passive/active does not scale with crit, and Quinn REALLY needs to get good crits on Harrier'd targets to reach her peak efficiency. She is a crit ADC, not a %HP scaler. You also get plenty of attack speed from PD, which i get second item.

I believe varus would benefit more from BT because of his Q scaling

Makes sense. I will give it a go when I get the chance.

Hmm doing simple math, you can see that the blood thirster has 75 more AD than the BoRK, yet the BoRK does 5% damage based on the enemy health.

to do 75 more damage to the enemy using a BoRK, the enemy has to have at least 1500 HP.

Usually lategame, enemies can get around 2.5k HP average. That's 125 more damage.

Rush Both (BT first for stacks) and never die.
