Riot im just wondering what you think of your item the Maw of Malmortius.

Do you think it just might be a bit too expensive for what it gives. The item is only cost efficient when you are below 75% life and it is somewhat of a niche item and most people usually don't even upgrade their Hexdrinker because of the cost.

Do you think that maybe you should lower the price or give the item a bit more stats to make it more effective?

Mayeb make it a 500 shield and give it a bit more magic resist?

Maw sucks unless you're Tryn or Kayle because it's a horrid item if you can't make use of the low hp bonus. There needs to be a more Seeker's Armguard-esque item for AD casters that actually turns into a viable late-game defensive item. Replacing the BF sword on Merc Scimmy with a AD/MR hybrid like Hexdrinker might work.

Which is kinda why I made this thread. Because everyone says this.

Its also pretty good on Mundo if you ever get to buy it... its little pricey though.

At its cost it sucks. Seriously. Very few pros will ever complete building it. It's like, as a solo top AD based character will build a hexdrinker as a GREAT choice vs. an enemy AP based champion. But then it sits there and rots for the remainder of the game and is never upgraded to a Maw. The game either ends with Hexdrinker still in its slot, or it's sold for a Guardian Angel or another choice.

That's the thing Riot needs to fix. Maw should be re tooled in stats and cost to match up more closely with how Haunting Guise transitions into Liandry's Torment.

Agreed

Seeing someone actually upgrade to Maw is a very rare sight.

I think it's supposed to be a bit overpriced, it's only there so you can upgrade hexdrinker late game. Riot doesn't like people being able to stack MR.
