Anyone else feel that ROA should be improved for Dominion?

Sometimes I buy a RoA.

I always regret it.

I'm not great with mages, so take this with a grain of salt, but when I stopped getting RoA my gameplay (with mages) improved significantly.

I think it's just way too costly to be worth it, when you can get 2-3 smaller items with greater effect (but less health) and you don't have to spend all of your early game gold on upgrading the RoA. Plus Catalyst is a kinda 'meh' starting item if you're not going bot (though of course you could start with a blasting wand, it's usually a great idea to take some health item to start).

I used to think Roa was amazing... but now between teams I feel early game matters too much, and roa power takes a while to kick in.

Its a pretty **** good item but its the sort of item that if you cant get quick then your better off getting something else, like if it takes more then 7 minutes to get it then you should just get something else since it takes 10 min to charge up, and the only lane you should reliably be able to get the gold for it is the bot.

I think RoA is slightly lackluster in Dominion, but the problem is Catalyst is too strong in the beginning. Catalyst doesn't just provide sustain; it makes you an unmovable wall. You have to get severely outplayed to lose bottom with a Catalyst against someone without one. It allows you to push and harrass more wrecklessly, and thus also control the health relic right above the middle of the lane. I feel weak right when I complete RoA, but that doesn't last long. I can definitely see merit in completing Rylai's after a Catalyst, though, and I think I may try doing that.
