EDIT: meant for wholegrn
Sorry I had to run before.
When I ult correctly, at least 4 of them are in the AOE. At least 3 of them eat 2 cannons each. The damage is NOT unreliable if you have their whole team in the AOE. There are too many cannons and too many people in the same area for the damage to be "unreliable". If you do it right, you should at least that much AOE damage, keep in mind that my magic pen actually helps. 30% Damage amplification is nothing to laugh at. If someone gets hits by 4 or 5 cannons, then great. You don't need that to happen though to inflict serious damage. The slow also keeps people in place, makes it difficult for them to kite your DPS.
Your other points? If you want to pay 90 gold everytime you want to raise moral, go for it. The rally flag will probably last longer than the battle, so when are you going to get the chance to shoot it?
Everyone keeps talking about Grog blade like it is this game breaking thing... it's a passive. When you play as other champs, do you buy an executioner's calling on all of them every time? Rarely do I see level 30s equip a summoner heal.
Heal scales with magic resist/armor. I actually build MR runes in my plank. So no, it's not worthless late game. And I don't know how to convince you that I get cc-ed all the time and that I use it just as much as you do, so I guess I'll stop trying. Parrrley doesn't have that long of a range that I can stay completely free of danger while casting it.
Heat n Serve..
You got some interesting info but im sorry to say that build isn't very good.
You a lack a tonne of crit and without the gold from avirices etc.. You could have a lot more farm with them and crit too which you need early to do well with Parrrley.
It's just a lackluster build for pirate.
Auto attacking when I play Pirate happens a **** load of the time because I do carry with him quite a lot. Getting the "cookie cutter" way is far superior in terms of farming, and auto attacking with Parrrley only doing slightly less damage overall but critting a lot more.
So for more farm, higher auto damage, and higher overall crit for a little less damage on Parrrely is what it breaks down too.
Your build is simply "Parrrely and be lackluster in other area's"
Also for not being able to hit for over 1000 quote I read above there..
Get sorc boots, trin, occult, n get a IE. Over 1k easily without runepage of +crit.
Did it last game would of loved to post it but for some reason all my screen shots are comming out black.
Anywho you may be a math wizz but you lack a lot of common sense when it comes to playing it seems.
