I recently looked at a list of items currently in the PBE, and I was disappointed to not find any items that focused on ad bruisers who required some mana. The way I see it, there are currently are three mana items that AD casters can get: Manamune, Frozen Heart, and Banshee's Veil. The way I see it, getting Manamune first reduces your tankiness significantly while the last two items offer no damage. I was looking for something like an AD Rod of Ages, and I thought it should be something like this (it has the current PBE item costs and stats):

3070 cost (Catalyst+Pickaxe+Long Sword+580g)
55 AD
350 Health
450 Mana
UNIQUE Passive: 10% CDR
Catalyst's Passive

I noticed that Spirit Stone did have a build path that included Mana Regen and AD, however, that would mostly be for junglers as Spirit Stone is pretty unviable in lane. So, here's my try at a Mana Regen/AD/Utility item for AD Casters who would go top or maybe mid:

2740 cost (Faerie Charm+Faerie Charm+Vampiric Scepter+Pickaxe+705g)
50 AD
15% Life Steal
15% CDR
15 Mana Regen per 5 seconds

This could be pretty useful for some extra utility at a low per-stat cost, while still giving you valuable AD.
TL;DR: AD Mana items are still lacking, let me know how my suggestions look.

If like to see a chalice AD caster item. new manamune is pretty awesome too. cant wait to use it.

catalysis AD item gets my vote too.

All in all, just more items.

The idea of an item for ADs that gets better over 10 mins like RoA is something I support.

Like the Great philosopher McJagger said: YOU CANT ALWAYS GET WHAT YOU WANT!

ROA cost like 3000 g. Manamune around 2000g, get that, and a giants belt, it should kinda compensate in terms of stats. You cant have it all in one item.

You thought Riot was actually going to make AD caster items for season 3? You poor, naive person.
