I am reworking my mega tank volibear build after some less than good results. I really like it but it needs rebuilding.

My build before:
Ruby Crystal > Heart of Gold > Ninja Taboi > Frozen Mallet > Sunfire Cape > Ionic Spark > Radulins Omen > Bloodthirster

My build now
Ruby Crystal > Heart of Gold > Ninja Taboi > Frozen Mallet > Radulins Omen > ? > Ionic Spark > Bloodthirster

For the ? I am trying to decide between Force of Nature (what does 8 movement speed multiplier mean?), Atmas Impaler, or Thornmail.

What do people think of this build and which item would you reccomend?

Since you have both sunfire cape and ionic spark in your build are you planning on splitpushing a lot?
Cause after there buffs thats basically what those 2 items specialise for...of course sunfire can be considered as an extension of a skill like for amumu mundo and renekton...

Getting force of nature on a tank always a good idea if u ask me.

I cut sunfire cape for a much more tanky build. Sunfire Cape is more of a gimic than anything. I tried thornmail and I went 13-5-9 so I might stick with that

If you are stacking hp atmas probably makes more sense than BT.

My optimal build
Heart of Gold > Bezerker's > Zeke's > Warmog > Atma's > Triforce....or Randuin's or Banshee's or some other resist needed late game to counter their best carry.

With his passive, and being harassing hard with his bite early, I generally don't need to buy resists early game, ppl stay away from my volibear or they die, they'll know it. I personally love zeke's on volibear early, hp/cdr/attckspd/lifesteal...+the aura, everything volibear needs. After Zeke's, sometimes I'll buy an Aegis if I trully need the resists, and by that time in the game, teamfights break out, and having those 2 great auras for me and my team, does alot. Kind of depends how the match is going, and whether our support is helping the team well after the 25+ minute mark.

While it's popular, I don't like ionic spark on volibear, because I grab attack speed alot earlier with berzerkers and zeke's, which satisfies me for attack speed already. Volibear dominates best when you can stack as much hp as you can, and why i get so much so quickly. I used to grab the giant's belt right after the shoes, but going down the zeke's path before hand, does so much more for my playstyle quicker.
