hmm, maybe because manaless champs cant stack AA staffs.

and deathcap gives more AP than any other item except soulstealer or AA staff with high mana.

But if you have 1 deathcap you would get a lot more utility and survivability out of a Rylai's than another deathcap -- trade 75 AP for a slow and a hunk of HP. Rylai slow better than you think.

Or a void staff, so you're doing more like 80% damage to your targets instead of 60% damage -- 20% of your damage is considerable, and probably more damage than you would gain with another deathcap, oh, and it's 1k cheaper.

Grab a DFG, 15% CDR and a /use that nukes like a truck.

Stacking deathcaps is every bit as dumb as stacking IEs.

If you're ahead being able to "1 shot" people is a bigger advantage than being able to survive to do another rotation.

- In you kill them in 3 second... might as well get another Deathcap to kill them in 2 seconds. also Rylai + DC = 104 AP, another deathcap= 201.5 AP. Difference 97.5 AP (this is a lot).
- If the targets have 30-60 MR Void staff is only a reduction of 15-20 MR (take into accounts, runes and masteries). Might as well add another 200 AP and it probably does more damage (though maybe a haunting guise would be better).

60 MR -9 (runes) = 51 MR-15% masteries = 44 MR (or 26 MR with void).

2000 magic damage / 1.44 = 1388 Magic damage
with void staff
2000 magic damage / 1.26 = 1587 Magic damage.

It all depends on the ratios and base damage of spells. Anivia, Swain and Veigar have good ratios. While Annie would be better served with Magic pen.

- Golem+masteries+elixir = enough CDR... we also got new boots

- Have happens if you already have rylai?
