Most people assume EHP is hard to calculate. It isnt, in addition to showing you why its easy I will show you how to do it.

Part 1 - truly understanding armorWhen you hover your mouse over your armor or MR, it shows what percentage of damage you block. Now, this is swell for showing the value of your armor, but it lends itself very poorly to the math.
Part 2 - Use riots formulas against them!Instead lets do some algebra now to find a simpler way to do the math that we can count on our fingers.
Part 3 - Finding your EHPTo find your effective magic/phys HP:
Part 4 - Weighing Item ChoicesTo start off, this is ALOT easier than you'd think! But its best to have a calculator, I'm guessing you're not great at dividing large, weird numbers. I use my phone.
Part 5 - Speedy CalculationsOK OK, so the reality of using this in game is that you cant.
Part 6 - Adjusting for abilities and itemsRemember to include any defensive sterioids. Remember that your shield as shen doesnt benefit from heath.
I, for one, believe this is worth a bump.
Heres a simple TL: DR;
Buying health has 100% effectiveness, plus 1% for each point of armor. So 100 armor = health is twice as effective. (remember to compare armor AND magic resist)
Every point of armor you buy is 1% of your HP in additional EphsHP. So 3k hp, 1 point of armor is worth 30 HP. 100 armor would be worth 3k EphsHP.
Bumps from other people aren't required but are appreciated.
