Why not go...

1) Catalyst
2) Boots
3) Sheen
...

The catalyst gives you extra hp and the level up proc + sheen will cover your mana regen. Plus then if you go Atmas you get an extra ~8 damage. Late game it also has some good options to transform into as well rather than the tear just sitting there.

go with the chalice over the tear.


I think the purpose of having tear is an end game term than chalice if you decide to turn the tear to scepter not for purely mana purposes and having confidence in tanking the spells w/o it and i find that with a clarity full glyph page you get enough mana and regen with tear unless some1 has mana drain i havnt ran out of mana till now

Update:

Per TheJar and others' suggestions, I now believe Chalice and Sheen are must-haves. The extra Resist is just too valuable, and you'll always get the mana when you need it, due to the long cooldowns. Sheen is simply too perfect with Roar for tearing down towers in seconds. I'll update the guide accordingly tomorrow--thanks all!

Managed a Sheen, Chalice and Atma's in one game. With an offensive rune/defensive mastery build. I was a bit of a feeder but we still won; I was tearing down turrets like no one's business.

Yep, playing against strong opponents, you will still die a bit, but the dramatic impact you have on any fight is obvious, and you can't question that kind of tower-pushing power.
