    quicksilver and cleanse is also much, much more expensive, requires sacrificing a summoner spell, and serves a different purpose (two debuff-removers vs. shortening all snares)

    what you're saying here is kinda like saying "yeah the long sword CAN be a good item but why get that when the b.f. sword is so much better?"

    No.

    a) Yi mostly cannot be snared
    b) The ability to end a stun/blind/snare/ignite/exhaust/etc INSTANTLY is infinitely superior to merely shortening stuns and snares.

    Sometimes you will only want the treads. However, against a serious CC team with any kind of coordination, you will do far better running cleanse/quicksilver. That analogy is also spectacularly inane.

    I'm not saying it isn't better. But it's entirely different because it's an entirely different item that costs much more and requires taking up a slot that boots, on their own, would not be taking up. Whereas the AS on zerkers could easily be part of another item that would have other effects besides a simple 25% boost.

    OK, there are two separate bits of confusion there.

    a) The opportunity cost of berserker's greaves (the latter part of your question there, ie what am I losing by taking 'zerkers) is negated if the alternatives have been rendered not useful by dint of what you already have.
    b) It is different. That's my entire point. That there will be situations where running cleanse/quicksilver with berserker's greaves is a superior option to running mercury's treads. When people say "Berserker's greaves are always the wrong thing to buy", this is a statement they have implicitly negated.

    Missed a Nasus discussion, but who cares about damage when you got the best single slow in the entire game. Also an ult that does a fuckton of psychological damage, and a good bit of real damage too.

    On the topic of nasus' ult, is it meant to display the bonus damage you get from the life leeched on the tooltip? Because I've never seen my damage go up while ulted and I watch for it constantly.

    Don't think it does, I've noticed my damage increase from the little numbers sliding off whatever I'm hitting though.

    Some sort of video.
    I have over 1GB of score screen images from the past few months, indicating every 3rd game is a h10K - l3D game. As you can see, my play here is horrible in terms of map awareness, skirmish Micro and caring for teammates. Now, I've improved above a level you can even dream of playing.
    Berserker's Greaves IS a proper pair of boots for Warwick.
    Your brain, it's defect, sorry. I don't care what your mom makes you believe. You are an idiot, sorry.

    I laughed.

    So what is the point of this video? I stopped watching 3 minutes in because I assumed the guy who made those comments is the one playing and he sounds like a tool.

    He buys a malady during part 2.

    I love when people talk trash and then lose the game. Started game 0-2-0 as Morgana in mid against Vlad who talked a lot of smack, finished game 7-2-11. he finished 3-8-something.

    Aside from being good at laning early game, Vlad doesn't seem all that great past that. His ult seems solid though but eh.

    I played 6 games as vlad today won 5. He's not that fantastic. People focus a liiitle on you. But you need a lot of ap to make your transfuse hit hard enough.

    Then again, heyo sunfires. Tons of sunfires.

    Vlad is ridiculously good at laning and because of that, he can push the advantage into later stages of the game against the enemy team's under-fed champions. He's still great at diving and running through a team to finish the low HP guy trying to run out the back as well.

    Dat Taric.

    Just did a loooong game, where, other than the Sivir on my team, my team just seemed to not get the point of the game. We aced their team, and 3/5 people went off to jungle. 2 of them would run headlong into their entire team while the rest of us were clearly on our way from across the map.

    They just would NOT work together.

    We won though, I ended up tanking turrets and popping radiance so we could dish out uber-rape.

    that was the best part of the game

    none of them had merc treads (3 of them had zerker greaves!!!) and none of them had magic resistance

    the sivir got very close to getting madreds

    also xin zhao was the proest at initiating without his team and chasing farther than nunubot

    Nasus, Taric, Singed, Morgana are my favorites. I imagine Zilean causes a lot of pulled hair.

    If too many people start abusing the awesomeness, he will catch a nerf. And we don't want that. So its best if you all forget that he's fun to play and go back to your other characters.
