Guides & Strategy forum is full of champ specific guides with item builds in them. Hopefully even reasons for the early choices are given. It's a better place to look for early item ideas.

this was more of a, if you liked a certain champ then post your starting item it was more for the noobs than for me i wanted them to have something to see. most noobs start off buying some really bad items for their champs

I've never understood thornmail on rammus. As you get more armor, physical attacks do less and less damage, so you reflect less and less damage as you accumulate more items.

Thornmail damage reflection is calculated before Armor Mitigation.

First two items I get on a few champions:
Sivir: Chalice/Ninja
Nasus: Sheen/Chalice
Veigar: Chalice/Catalyst
Jax: Ninja/Vampiric
Chogath: Chalice/BoSwiftness

Thornmail reflects based on the damage you would have taken if you had 0 armor. It is calculated entirely pre-mitigation.
