Do it. ****ing do it. Seriously.

Not buying it gives every melee in the game the easiest loophole to even your best kiting, positioning, and skill shot dodging. Run around a corner. Run in a bush. BAM! You either can't go anywhere because they could be sitting there waiting to **** you up or you go in and find that they are waiting for you and BAM! You have been ****ed up.

If you are using a half decent runepage then you have enough damage to spend 1700 gold on a Lightbringer which gives AS and..hold on...this **** give DAMAGE too? Yes it does. Not much, but enough until you get your big, shiny, juicy, succulent Best Friend Sword.

Srsly.

Or just have any of your team mates get a Hextech Sweeper.

I used to buy it. You'll learn soon enough! Or maybe I've been wrong, all along.

It looks better on paper. If you can sit there autoattacking it's the most gold efficient autoattack item. If you need to kite a lot the AS is going to waste. It works well on Vayne because she can stun people into bushes and keep shooting them, she needs vision for her passive to work, and her silver bolts scale well with AS.

For most AD carries LB is a situational item as it delays their big damage items. If you don't have LB and someone runs into brush stay at a safe distance and use skills.

Vayne and Ashe can make good use of it, and maybe kog; but that's about it. It's a situational item otherwise, not like on mages/tank where the sweeper is worthwhile even if you don't need the passive.

Because chasing someone into the jungle alone is the smartest move you can make.

Light bringer is not a "you need to rush this" item unless the enemy team has stealthy people. That or if it works really well for the one champion you like. It's not going to work well on every single ranged AD champion.

That's a bad example. Lightbringer can't prevent you from getting bushwhacked because it only works on auto-attacks, which are targeted, which require you to see the enemy to use. What Lightbringer does is keep an enemy visible in an already raging teamfight. However, if they aren't using the brush and fog of war to give you problems, I don't see a need for it.

The reason why Hextech Sweeper is so much better is because you don't have to see anybody before you can make the passive happen. You can use AoE spells.

Unless you're Ezreal, then you can use Q to get sight into brushes, heh.

You're probably better off letting someone else buy sweeper instead.

You're basically wasting stats so you can have the utility that other champs can build just as easily.

Why not just build more damage and stay with your team?
