I do not know if this was desired to happen, but lichbane seems excessively overpowered at the moment. When you have the lichbane status your next attack deals your ability power on your next attack...this works normal for creeps and champions, but on towers it does double. Since players with higher ap than ad deal their ap to towers, this somehow stacks. With lichbane and say 500 ap you would deal 1k x mr damage to tower. So in otherwords a 500 ap champ could deal roughly 400 damage to turret in one hit and around 700 damage to inhibitor. In late game when champs near 1k ap they can easily 2 hit an inhibitor while backdooring on a ward. Any hardcore caster (veigar/ryze) could take down nexus turrets in 7-8 hits. Champs with escape mechanisms (leblanc/ez) can successfully backdoor with no stoping blink in zap blink out wait 30 seconds repeat. Its impossible to stop when the losing team is trying to cower behind turret. boom turret is gone very soon. It seems pretty imbalance and like a bug

If this is a bug, why is it in Guides & Strategy?

Unless, of course, you meant to..

lich bane is a late game item and only effective when you already have a lot of AP.

by late game, towers are already really easy to take down by any character, the fact that you weren't forcing teamfights or defending a turret is the problem, not lich bane.

otherwise the game would take too long

Read the leblanc thing i just wrote with wards a leblanc could solo a tower more easily than a yi or sivir. Also a leblanc blinking in and out can destroy an inhibitor even while its being defended.

Auto attacks already do 40% of your ap in damage to the buildings.

Say you had 100 AD and 100 AP and you attacked a tower with lichbane. You would do:

100 (Auto attack) + 40 (The bonus from AP that is added to your auto attack) + 100 (The lichbane proc) = 240 Total Damage

Wrong.

It's either AP or AD. Not both. B/c the procs add straight AD, it's Always AD + proc, never AP.

No this is wrong. It adds 40% of your AP or your BONUS AD. You get your BASE AD either way.
