Nice list, personally i hate Bloodthirster. One death and it's back for farming 30 minions for the full thing, i think this should be fixed. Does warmog's disappear when you die? No.

I think sword of the occult is the new Bloodthirster. Easier to manage stacks and will do crazy damage for the gold invested when full.

I wonder, how does Black Cleaver fit in here? (Assuming you count the stacks value only towards yourself, counting it based on the additional damage your team gains is variable).

Good question. Procs are not taken into account unless they are straight damage (like Sword of the Divine). Especially unique procs, are hard to evaluate, they will always set the item's value to zero since there's nothing to compare it to.

All of the properties that have a base or derived item cost are calculated into the items in the list. For example, to purchase the same amount of HP and hp5 on a warmogs, you have to spend a lot more money then the (stacked) warmog's costs.

Ok. I'll assume that Black Cleaver is still one of the better buys for someone who can run up the stacks. -60 Armor for your entire team seems substantial (from an intuitive standpoint).

I totally agree. Champs like Pantheon, Ashe, Ezreal, and Gangplank who scale abilities from AD and have AS boosts will get the most from it.

Black cleaver on Tristana is really good judging from the limited maybe 15 games i've played her.

What's the value bonus of Mandred's versus a 2500 hp target?
