I think it's because Dorans have gained too much popularity.

Usually I have

Boots
Item
Item
Ward
Potion
Elixer

when i leave base after a bluepill, especially if I'm not the main carry

I like carrying a red pot if I'm mid whenever I possibly can, mainly on dps, just cause if i see the gank coming I just chug the pot and I'm set.

I can't really vote on this poll. I do use them but it's not like 1-2 every game. Some games I use them, and some games I don't. It really depends on the champion I use too.

Every champ I play (excluding some low farm support, like Janna and Sona) I have 3 levels of builds:

"Core" build, at which point I buy wards (usually ~2-3k).
"Standard" build, at which point, I buy elixirs (usually ~6k).
"Full" build, which I sell my Doran items and build pure defense (4 slots filled with full items, usually about 10k).

I play a lot of hybrid characters, where I normally purchase all 3 (Plus Oracle for ward killing) once my build is set

Yes but not when facing a Shaco.

All i have to do is be more careful and dont run around far from towers with very low hp.

MAYBE if the game gets lategame, i consider it.

Different story with other stealth chars. I feel more threatened by eve nowadays than by a shaco.

2 wards in jungle and goodbye jester.

This poll is interesting. On any AP champ I usually have a blue elixer up at every moment there could be a fight and even then I only use 3-5 a game. I guess the people using 5+ must be buying all kinds of elixers.
