So... How are people theorycrafting items when they don't know exactly how his abilities scale (if at all)?

It's likely that, based on his passive, you're going to want the typical AS/melee dps items. Starks, possibly Guinsoo's if he has good ratios, then flat AD/crit after those.And, of course, Frozen Mallet will always be a good survivability option for melee DPS. But I would rather wait and see what his ratios on AP/AD are.

.66 per hit on his Q, .33 on his ult for AP ratios.

His Q only scales bases on damage over levels.

W reduces the mana cost.

E reduces the cooldown.

It's easy to get this information.

His damage stats are cooldown reduction, attack speed, move speed/slows, and armor pen.

I would rather stack damage and attackspeed at the same time, as well as a little bit of health never hurts anyone.

So his scaling is atrociously bad. Gotcha.

In that case, items are the stock Carry items:

IE, YGB, LW, Crit or LS item, Survivability item, Boots.

Sigh, tired of all the champs being released with ****ty non viable ap ratios. Why even add ap to there formula? His charge should add ap as well. Buffing his ratios would make for some interesting hit and run builds with ap and lichbane. Right now its pointless to stack anything other then standard melee dps carry items.
