Sorry for adding to any previously made threads. Search is disabled.

What are some champions that have increased benefits with a hybrid (AP/AD, AP/AS, etc.) item build?
Justification would be great.

These are some champs that, in my opinion, work well with a hybrid build:
(do any of these champions work better with other builds in your opinion?)

Ezreal
Katarina
Teemo
Twisted Fate
Nunu

Thanks in advance!

I agree. I was just putting it up there. Hah.

I find Teemo works well as a hybrid because of helping his dmg output through poison/mushrooms and still being able to do some auto attack damage here and there.

it's almost like he has to double snowball and ignore survivability for it to work, but that is a terrible, terrible idea. terrible. there's probably a viable way, but i haven't put in the time to find a build that consistently works with him.
AD Masteries: 21 - 0 - 9
Dorans Ring/Shield
Swiftness/Mercury/Ionian
Malady
Phage
Madred's Bloodrazor
Frozen Mallet
Gunblade

Use it all the time on teemo and it just rapes.

Eh imo any champ built hybrid can be better by just building one way or another. Most of the time an AP build w/ Lich Bane in it will out due any AD+AP built because you only have to rely on one stat. Also hybrid builds, to be useful damage-wise imo, are mostly glass cannony. Builds with Hybridized damage are much better.(AP w/ Lich, AS/on-hit)

For the champs you listed,

Ez-Terrible hybrid because of how the ult works now, AD is best.

Kat-If you call an AP build with 1-2 gunblades in there a hybrid build, then I guess she is the closest champ to a viable hybrid. AP centric is best though.

Teemo- AS/on-hit is the best imo. If you focus too much on AP an oracles is going to ruin your plans.

Nunu-Tanky with spell vamp, make your enemies cry trying to kill you.

My biggest complaint with Hybrid builds though (and many will probably think this stupid) is that you neuter your damage output against towers. Nothing better than your carry taking 2x as long as the other teams to kill towers because they have a single stat build and yours is a hybrid.

Hybrid builds are viable because, even tho they dont scale as well as pure AD or AP builds, they give u more stats for what u pay. Gunblade + Guinsoos + Trinity is deadly on many champs. Ez can be hybrid if he wishes, because, in all honesty, how much do ezreals really rely on their ult? Maybe AP. As AD ezreal, u would average about 260 extra AD. 260 extra damage on ur ult. As AP, u would prolly average at abour 450 extra damage on ur ult. And maybe 160 as a hybrid. Ur only losing 100 damage on ur ult as a hybrid Ez. not that big of a deal. Regardless, i would not go Hybrid Ez because i prefer to just focus Q, use W for turrets, and use E to GTFO.
