Just as a random Q...

Mobility is so key in this game. Zeal's usually the third item I buy on practically any non-mage hero, especially tanks.

I don't see it that often though... why?

Other items are better, usually. I.E. Sheen on Blitz or Gangplank. HP items for tanks, etc.

Early-mid Zeal is good for Tryndamere, don't know if it'd be better than just rushing IE or going for something else on others though.

For it's cost it has rather low haste and crit. Making it not a very solid item at all for people looking to make a quick jump in attack speed/crit chance. Most people skip over it entirely if they aren't build for Phantom Dancers right away.

zeal and phantom dancer are overpriced 'cause of movement speed and dodge ( for PD ).
pD = 3300 for 40% attack speed / 30% critical /20% dodge / 12% movement speed
for 1600 you can get 50% attack speed and 17% life leech + an unique passive not so bad
if you buy two cloack of agility ( 1760 ), you get 36% critical

1600 + 1760 = 3360 for 55% attack speed 36 critical chance 17% life leech and a dps passive

I usually get a Zeal as the third item after Warmogs and Starks for Mundo. The attack speed and crit help make Masochism nastier, and the mobility helps him as well.
