one big problem i see is that you made the proc rates 100%. If you remember, building a trinity force doesn't give you a free frozen mallet, your still stuck with the crappy phage proc rate. I believe it should stay the same for the tank version as well. Basically the combine cost is to save backpack space + buff the raw stats a little bit.
Oooh, this is fun...
Glacial Shroud (1525 Gold) + Chalice of Harmony (890 Gold) + X gold combine cost
10 mana regen/5
UNIQUE PASSIVE: For every 1% mana missing, mana regen is increased by 1%
UNIQUE PASSIVE: 20%CDR
UNIQUE PASSIVE: Every hostile spell cast in X radius of you gives you X mana
Basically, an early to midgame tank item for mana hungry CDR based tanks like Galio, Amumu, and Nunu. The combine cost would probably need to be a bit expensive as having 20%CDR too early could cause bruisers to pick up the item.
Things about the item you made:
First, why do you gain more magic resistance than armor from this item, shouldn't it be the other way around since the norm is that you gain more armor than magic resistance in a game.
Second, why did you use quicksliver sash. I for one believe that Quicksliver sashis actually really good for the fact that it removes CC and should not build anything to it. It should only remain as a option to counter someone. A few more buffs maybe, but not an upgrade path.
Third, what makes Trinity Force good is not the stats it gives, but the effects. If you're trying to mimic trinity force, I would suggest the stats being lower.
Now to play along and create my very own defense trinity force:
- Kindlegem (850) + Chalice of Harmony (890) + Warden's Mail (1350) + 750 gold = 3840 gold
Stats: (how much it increased)
- 250 Health (+50)
- 55 Armor (+5)
- 35 Magic Resistance (+5)
- 30 Health Regen (+10)
- 12.5 Mana Regen (+5)
- 12.5% Cooldown Reduction (+2.5)
- Unique Passive: Increases your health regen and mana regen by 1.5% per 1% you are missing. (they increase to respect to their individual pools)
- Unique Passive: 30% chance to reduce physical attacker's movement speed and attack speed by 35% for 4 seconds.
The tanky item of all tanky items. I used the three least used items that I know of to make it. The upgrade cost is high because every stat is vaubleable to everyone, so the cost is suppose to reflect that. It's still very cost efficient when including the buffs to the passives.
Fairy EDIT! - After thinking it over and reading some comments, I changed my effects and I declare that every champion would be able to make good use of it because this is the tanky items of all tanky items with every stat you would want to be more tanky!
And Yes, I agree that a tanky trinity force item should never be made, but saying that, I still want to throw out random ideas for fun!
About my suggestion having more MR than Armor, the whole idea about the item is that armor is so much easier to buy, so after you buy it you wouldn't have any issue making up the Armor that you want.
I really like the suggestions you two have made. Of course this is all just idea crafting but I appreciate the effort towards making a Legendary Tank item.
That said, I hope this thread gets more attention and people start thinking about it more to help Tanks out.
Thanks again for your replies!
So as the Trinity force, we need an item that emphasizes the 3 other aspects. So here's my idea.
Warden Mail + Spirit Visage (I think there should be a new MR item for this) + Catalyst
+ some gold
Unique: When hit, attacker has 30% chance of being slowed and weaker attack speed
Unique: +20% Self Heal
Unique: Every time an enemy champion hits you, you restore 2% of your max mana
Although only a few tank/offtanks could use this. Galio comes to mind. And Taric is practically giddy if he can get focused with this.
The problem with adding a trinity force like item to tanks is that every dps will get it and defeat the purpose. What you really need is items that dps wouldn't like, such as a stat stick that gives higher armor/magic resistance than ga but without the rez. There are several suggestions for such an item already on forumns.
