Boots + Ghostblade + LW

What's next? Hydra vs Van Damn vs BC.

Black Cleaver. Max CDR + more penetration helps you with dealing with tankier targets. You'll melt squishies with that build anyway.

I recommend playing Zed instead. Takes some more skill to do well with, so should be more rewarding to do well with.

Hydra for AoE.
IE for single target insta-nuke.
BC if there is another AD who can benefit fully from it.

But as I said its really comes down to preference and play style.

Well yeah, if you're the only AD you don't really need BC. You could still just get the Brutalizer though, it's pretty good and gives you 40% CDR with CDR boots and Ghostblade. Most games will have two ADs top, I think?

Ewww no.
Lightbringer is dead. Doesn't have enough stats to make up for the cost.

"Statistical Value

30 attack damage = 1080g
30% Critical Strike Chance = 1500g
Total Gold Value = 2580g
Statistical Efficiency

The Lightbringer is 113.2% gold efficient without the passive and active."

For champions that can use crit chance, it seems like a pretty decent item.

Except assassins tend to have a greater preference for higher AD values and a lesser preference for crit, and they also tend to prefer upfront burst over silly things like DoTs, which means that every AD assassin in the world is going to vastly prefer waiting the roughly 1500 gold to upgrade their Hatchet into an 80 AD upfront crit-burst Van Damns instead of a silly 30 AD item that inflicts a lowly, weaker-than-Van-Damns DoT, especially since the build path also includes their precious AD instead of just a worthless Cloak.
