Maybe I just didn't have enough exposure to Dominion (or high level play) but I didn't notice everyone grabbing it. In fact, I generally only saw on people that would normally get it (garen, maoki, etc.) I rarely ever got it but it'd be nice to have some option for a single item worth a lot of health.

I can see the reason to remove it but not with out having it's replacement Item ready. Trinity Force and Warmogs were my core items. So Replacing Warmogs with Frozen Mallet doesn't make much sense.

Just tried Sivir without Warmog's.

Mallet just doesn't cut it. No longer a viable pick, unless the next games prove me wrong.

Well I hardly think we should justify anything based on Sivir's performance :P

It's atma's that's the problem, not Warmogs.

Not liking the warmogs removal...All I play is Jarvan and pantheon, and they both go atmas sooooo


that sucks...Plus I never found it that big of a problem, and if you did remove it at least wait until its replacement was ready...

I contend that these silly tweaks by means of global buffs would not have been necessary if you hadn't changed the order in which flat and percent-based penetration mechanics apply over a year ago. The cost effectiveness of offensive items would have gone up a bit and the cost effectiveness of defensive items would have gone down a bit. We also wouldn't be seeing this long-standing tanky dps meta that we've seen since that change was implemented. Problem solved.
