    If you were typing something into the item store you'd already be taking way more time than you should

    Fastest way to buy is just to memorize all the items and which components go into what, then click on a recommended item with one of the components you need, click the component, and click the item you want on top

    Of course sometimes you have to dig in the sluggish crappy category menu and that sucks

    @Riot please let us set our own recommended items for champions thanks.

    I'd just love the ability to have a tab for user set favorites. I've noticed a lot of high elo streams, they'll start going through the build menu while waiting to teleport back so it's literally a double click or two, and you're back on your way.

    Go google a program called Yaric.

    I use it and love it. Changes the recommended items to whatever you want :)

    I played a game as Mordekaiser against MF, Trynd and Yi. They thought I was the greatest DPS ever....

    I had 330 armor before my shield and a Thornmail.

    Their team ignored buying MR.

    They had no idea how I was bursting them down.

    The reason Merc Treads are so good is they are built by ideal laning items. Your first trip back, about half the time one of the very best purchases is the 400 cloak, and on your second trip back, you generally want boots 2.

    usually my first trip back i'm sitting at about 2k gold though.

    2K gold is a lot. At that point, you might be better off leaving and buying beforehand, even if you don't need to.

    Though, if you have 2K gold before having to leave, you might as well grab whatever boots you want, as your opponents are probably terribad (at least relative to your skill level, if not in an absolute sense) beyond belief if they cannot even force you to heal / leave to help a fight before then.

    With Shen / Karma, I strongly consider leaving and teleporting back at 1185 gold, for boots 1 + philo + 1 hp pot.

    New ryze is pretty fun, but I do tend to get ksed a lot because he doesn't have a lot of burst, which I guess is fine because he doesn't need that many items.

    You have to manually go in and change the images, which requires downloading the source material. There is a topic which has a compilation of them in the LoL general forum.

    I just do some quick copy paste work so you can easily compare the two.

    Problem with leaving early in solo lanes is that often your tower gets pushed with the now super resistant minions. Sustaining as long as you can is usually better. If i'm basing super early i'm probably going to get a dorans item.

    The thing isn't that if you can get a key item before you opponent, sometimes it's worth going back before you have to, just so that you can gain the advantage over them by virtue of the item.

    For example, you're laning against some AP asshole and while you can last hit just fine you are unable to harass and prevent their last hitting. You could wait and just both rice. OR you could back grab a null magic mantle, some pots, and a ward and harass the shit out of that guy so he can't farm.

    In one scenario there's no competitive advantage (unless one of you benefits from ricing more than the other), and in the second you win your lane.

    Well, timing is key. Also, I'm running teleport often these days in lanes.

    I'm still surprised by 2K before a return though. I've seen a couple good AD carries do it, but only on unusually successful games.

    I think the most gold I've had before basing even once is 4k

    Well, maybe I'm missing the point. Are we talking about average case or best case here? I've definitely had >2K before, but I plan to back at certain points relative to my gold earning based on very large sample sizes (with Vlad 1200-1500 is common if the enemy team has a jungle, for example).

    is there ever a time when building components then the main item isn't a good option? like the price doesn't drop as much as the full price of the component or is it a straight subtraction of the component price from the full item price?

    No item is simply the sum of its components. Once you get every piece, the item has an additional cost to convert into the greater item. That cost can vary from a couple hundred gold to over 1k.

    Edit: I think the answer to your actual question is yes. If you click a big item in the store, then buy a component of it, the new price is full price minus each component you have in you inventory. And it shows that when you click again.

    That I knew. I was wondering if the total cost for just buying the item was actually cheaper than buying each part then paying for the conversion? Or if both methods have the same total cost

    Same total. One thing LoL got right is the store sorting and doing easy math for your big items.

    Yes, and to add to this, it can be very beneficial not to complete an item. I've held onto 1/3 of an item for as much as 30 minutes without finishing it, and it was a smart play (Anti-Magic Cloak, which is part of Force of Nature, for example). Generally if you can buy a piece you want to do so if you're at the shop already. Past that advice, it gets considerably more complicated.
