Seriously, no other item compares to Hextech sweeper. I build it every game where AP is remotely useful for my champion.

For 200g you get:
10AP
100HP
10% move speed
UNIQUE passive - reveals nearby traps
UNIQUE active - reveals nearly champions for a period of time


The important bits are the move speed and the active. 10% move speed is huge. With all the brush and FoW on dominion, the 6 seconds vision on enemy champions is enormous.

What about that Trinity Force?
For a combine cost of 3 gold you get lots of stuff!

It's a pretty boss and underappreciated item, regardless of whether there are traps or invisible champs.

I always get aggravated when I play ARAM and I'm against an Akali or someone with invisibility, and I kindly ask any ap users (which there always seems to be more of than AD) if they could get a sweeper. The response is usually "wat's sweeper?"

I never build it unless there's a couple annoying ppl like shaco, teemo, evelynn, akali ect.
and even then i sometimes just grab oracles. Usually spell pen is too valuable to grab something w\o it until late game.

The real value is the move speed though. 10% is 35-40 move speed depending on your champion. That is a huge amount of speed on top of boots and really gives you great map control.

Yeah, Hextech Sweeper is an incredibly powerful item.
One mistake I see people make is they usually only buy it as an anti-stealth item, like UPfreely above me, while severely underestimating the power of a mini-CV every minute.

That reveal can mean the difference between face-checking 4 people in a brush and walking away with your life, and also has additional utility in chasing people, or screwing someone trying to B behind the Windmill point when your team has just won a fight over it.

The movement speed and CDR are also really great stats in general.

It is SUCH A COST EFFECTIVE Item. I go for hextech or Locket first after boots. Sweeper if there is a teemo or not a lot of AD because of the MS, AP, CDR, HP, and brush check.

If there are 3 or more AD I go locket first, which is also a very cost effective and yet under utilized item (Armor, HP, CDR, and shield active for very cheap).
