I think what would be a interesting idea for gold regen builds (stack avarice blade, etc) is making an item that gives % gold per minute.

Would encourage some different gameplay, but I can also see people just picking up some of these items and going afk.

Thoughts?

Ever heard of compounded interest? It breaks RL economics, why would we want to introduce that to the game?

champs like tristana would benefit from items like these way too well, and would have to be adjusted for it. Not to mention what other stat could it have, and how much would something like that cost? As it stands, the 5 gold per 10 items usually have a long investment time before they pay themselves off, and the stats are more early game...something like this would need to be pretty expensive imo, therefore making it more of a late game item, which would seem to undo the whole point of it...

It's not that it's hard to program, it's very easy.

Gold+=<Gold per 5 seconds>
Gold*=<% increase per 5 seconds>

The problem is that it would create balance issues.

Look at Morde for instance, not a very scary char.
You let him farm top with 5 hearts of gold for 30 minutes and you've got a problem.
With %gold increase he'll become a problem in 15 minutes and 15 minutes of uninterrupted farm happens a lot more often than 30.

You mean all those times when i cant afford to B because we dont want to derail our push would now earn me hundreds of extra gold because i had enough for a triforce, just not the time?

So its official that ANY change will create some sort of balance issue!!! So lets not change n e thing ever because the game is perfectly balanced right now!!! This argument to not do n e thing b/c it creates a challenge when balancing is just lame... Not saying this idea is good nor bad but anytime somebody comes up with a new idea somebody always say 'This would cause balance issues'...... hurp derp
