an immediate catalyst the protector would definetly be popular, I love the sustain it gives you, and sustain is supposed to be important in dominion, so i could see it

This is what I think based only on current items in the game:

For tanks: boots + HoG + potions
For support: boots + philo stone + potions
For AD carries: boots + long sword + red elixir + green elixir + potions
For AP carries: sorc boots + (blue elixir or potions)

As far as I know Elixirs are not going to be in the game and neither is Madreds for whoever mentioned that. Oh and no snowballs either.

That being said I can't really see Gold per 10 items because the amount of gold you gain is supposed to go up a lot and you would really want an early game advantage as opposed to a late game advantage in a map that could go very short. I would say boots, would be sort of #1, I would like to try mobility and see how well that goes for me. I could also see some straight up defense/offense, for some people I would prolly go with boots then work on Catalyst or Boots and Blasting Wand.

I could swear I heard that Madred's razors weren't in Dominion.

They're not. Neither are wards. Which makes me wonder what the heck is going to happen with Wriggle's Lantern. It's not listed as a restricted item. Also, elixers will not be available in Dominion.

Sifotes, a Zeal+Vamp scepter would cost over 1600, you wont be starting with that. And you'll definitely want to start with boots on every champ, as you just can't afford to give up points because you couldn't get there in time.

I already have my strategy though. Rammus. Boots of mobility. Promote a minion, then ghost+powerball to the top center point, grabbing the health buff on the way. Take two levels in taunt, so if they arrive before a teammate does, you can taunt them into the turret for about 2 shots. 1 teammate comes top mid with you to hold that point, one teammate grabs top left, 2 teammates grab bot left. If you have a shaco or a support with CV you can control the map enough that you can have 3 people top mid with 2 bot left, and they cant pass you top mid to get to your top left point. You won't need to leave anyone there. If they send more than two to contest bot left, take top right as a 3v2. Seems like a pretty solid strat to me.

I would bank on people getting an early Sheen/Brutalizer/Phage/Hextech. Or going with Boots and Blasting Wand/Pick Axe/Chain Vest/Negatron Cloak.

Sheen will be a popular one for characters that benefit from it, like Poppy, Nasus, Akali and such.
