So while I'm withdrawing my support from the AA staff stacking that I originally suggested, I think that people underestimate AP on Kog. With that same 0.6 sec speed, 1 point of AP will deal (0.3 AP / 0.6 sec) = 0.5 AP per second. Compare that to a 1.0 AP skill on a 3.6 sec cooldown (Nunu's Iceblast at max CDR), and you only get (1.0 AP / 3.6 sec) = 0.2777 per second.

Now, you obviously won't hit every ult, but it does AoE damage, has a CRAZY range, and you will hit a good percentage of them in a teamfight with cc flying around. And don't forget that you have three other skills that also have decent AP scaling. So I think think that an Archangel's staff is a good investment. I also think that building pretty squishy (maybe getting a Glacial Shroud/Frozen Heat, because it's so **** good) is the only way to play him, since he's actually SAFER than as/onhit or AD kog.

Oh, and one other thing to be said about stacking AP: I can't think of another champ that can explode a squishy, then do it again seven second later.
This is correct. +1
