Mirrormail?
Null magic cloak + negatron + 1k = 80 mr and returns 30% of all magic damage as Physical damage >;3. Problem solved =D

Maybe instead of a Thornmail type quality where their magic spells do damage to their health bar, it could be damage done to their mana bar.
In turn, this would make even more use out of a champ with Wit's End and this new mana-draining thornmail item.

^ - that helps casters more since they have more mana most of the time.

Not enough tank MR items, honestly. When I see a team that is 5 casters or 5 ap champs, i get mercs, HoG, aegis, banshees, fon... don't know what to get after that


In all honesty, banshees and fon is usually enough to put a stop to a 5 AP team. I've done it with ryze, so any actual tank could do it too.

No, a Banshee Veil makes AP weak as hell as it is, we dont need a damage counter and we defenetly dont need another high end m.res item to make AP characters useless, imagine Banshee+ another high m.res, and how much gold mages would need to even tickle anyone.....

BV is designed to stop burst casting, which is what casters do. Thornmail is designed to stop sustained DPS, which is what DPS do. This isn't some miraculous coincidence.

If you get your... 'mirror' mail or whatever silly bull**** then I want a BV that stops burst melee DPS.

They need a MR item with HP, aside from banshee, like sunfire cape.

Banshee's Veil, Hexdrinker, and Guardian Angel all are very anti-caster items.
