Phreak!

While you are here i had a question about how attack speed slows are considered movement speed slows in the patch-notes. Does this mean Master Yi will negate atk speed slows in highlander or is it just in regards to cleanse abilities?

In top lane don't you want to get the specified resist vs your lane?

I would think that Sunfire is a good start vs Melee AD and that SV is great vs AP of all kinds.

I would also think that you would want the SV first as it synergizes with his LS.

I definitely understand the Botrk.

Generally the 6 items I would end with are - Botrk/SV/Omen/Trinity/zephyr/LW

WIth this he would have 40% CDR with both elixers. He would easily be able to prc trinity all the time. Would have well over 3k HP and 100 of each resist.
you generally always want botrk --> SV instead of botrk --> enemy laner specific resist so you can get insane healing when you pop W and win every trade ever, or just to heal up on minions and continue pushing / winning.

botrk --> maw is for when you are facing another duelist and you can surprise them with more AD ontop of more AS then pop your ult to finish them.

Kindlegem is obviously the reason why we can't have nice things, not the DotA imported Zhonya's Hourglass, Blade of the Ruined Game or the evergreen "let's see which team has more Guardian Angels".

Trinity Force -> Merc Treads -> Trinity Force -> Trinity Force -> Trinity Force -> Trinity Force (You can substitute a Trinity force Situationally)

I normally end up buying another Trinity force to help me survive as well.

Olaf has **** AD compared to his AS, is easily bursted, and wants to stay at low health for a long time. Why wouldn't he get maw?

When I jungle I build SotEL, frozen mallet, ninja tabi/mercs depending on enemy team damage dealers, ravenous hydra, frozen heart, and w/e else tanky item he needs to be effective.

as far as top lane i would probably pick up a dorans blade or two, rush frozen mallet, boots, hydra, etc

I'm usually going for SV or TF first followed by the other. Mallet and Atmas next, YES I SAID ATMAS, SOMEONE HAD TO MAKE USE OF IT. I've done damage upwards of 500-700 a hit depending on whether I'm proccing spellblade and critting. The high attack speed makes it so I'm guaranteed to get plenty of those.

Save your axes for slowing fleeing targets, not for damage during fisticuffs. And if it matters, I level w and e somewhat simultaneous to help refresh e's cooldown. I can see Botrk working if you want to help take out tanky enemies instead of just diving for squishies. I never get to a 6th item.

Maw gives the most damage and works great with his passive.
