which stacks better for multiple of the same item: Archangels or Hat? Someone i know said Archangels does, but others say Hat does.... has anyone done the actual math?

1 Rabadon and 5 AAS gives more AP than 6 Rabadons if you have over 3k Mana.

None of them because AP stacking = one dead caster = no damage at all.

archangel staffs stack better but only if you also have a deathcap becuase of that 30% increase. ALso, keep in mind that stacking deathcaps increases your ap at a faster rate, but has a lower cap. I used the leaguecraft builder and 5 staff + a cap add up to 1261 ap whereas 6 deathcaps add up to 1209 (tested this with Malphite). Also keep in mind that caps each cost 800 more gold than the staffs so in the end your paying 4000 extra gold for 42 LESS ap. Another thing to keep in mind iss that stacking raw deathcaps will give you a quicker boost in ap, BUT have a lower maximun..but then again, seeing that they cost 800 more staffs'd be better.
In the end I say stacking staffs is better IF you also have 1 cap.

Straight AP stacking means you do **** loads of damage. Playing carelessly = dead caster. Regardless of survivability. If you are aggressive and don't like to think then yes mix it up. Otherwise you are a smart caster, and can handle proper positioning to stay alive longer. Long enough to kill massively.


Oh and Stack Arch angles with one cap fro ultimate AP. Should break 1k

Proper positioning means ****-all when tanky DPS can just tank out the damage long enough to kill you or assassins can easily one-combo you.

Assassins won't one combo you unless they have been fed, in which case it's a little late to go all offense. As far as tanky dps, if it's only a couple of them then by all means positioning means everything. To say otherwise lends to the notion that you don't know how to do it.

Accualy, if you can get enough kills, a soulstealer, a cap, and 4 AAs is best

Regardless, stacking AA OR deathcap is a terribad idea. Zhonyas active extremely useful for almost any caster in surviving, banshees is practically a necessity for every champ late game, and AP stacking without void staff is straight up ******ed. This lets you stack 1-2 AA's or caps at most. Still not something i'd recommend
