Oh posh. Carry a bucket of holy water and you counter Warwick, Vladimir, and all the undeads all at once *plus* your sword doesn't dull. Plus it's hard to get the same kind of shine out of silver once the blood starts tarnishing it.

But yeah, IE tends to fit the most champs outta the bunch for a late-game item. Bloodrazors, bloodthirsters, and black cleavers are nice, but each one has its own pitfalls. Bloodrazor loses a bit of it's damage to MR, bloodthirsters generally need to be farmed and it can be lost, and black cleavers are nice so long as no one else has one -- I'm pretty sure the stacks don't, well, stack past 3. Gunblades usually are only helpful on units that stand to gain something from AD/AP/Lifesteal/Spellvamp more than any other item can give, and that profile is surprisingly slim. IE is a kind of blanket item for most characters until they start building survivability or other late game items.

Bloodthirsters give sustainability not survivability.
