All the Armor in the world won’t stop you from dying to that fed AP mid. While less important than Armor, Magic Resist can mean the difference between surviving at half HP and finding yourself back at the spawning pool. AP is all about early and mid game dominance, so make sure to pick up AP defenses before the enemy has a chance to burst you down to zero!

As an aside, I’ve also put in how to counter each of these items. I will be updating past articles over the next week with strategies against items, so re-read those past articles to learn even more!

Personally, I’m terrible at this game.  And that’s why I used to buy Stark’s Fervor on some AD carries.  Why not, right?  It gives attack speed, life steal, lowers enemy armor, and even a little health regeneration to boot!  Like I said, I’m a baddie.  This is suboptimal for a lot of carries, especially at my average level of farm each game.  Stark’s Fervor is one of three items that are either new or changed next patch.  Read on for more information!

Items Guide – Armor Part 1

Posted: November 19, 2011 by xenocidebrm in Guides, Items

Armor is perhaps the most important statistic in a League of Legends game. Why, you ask? Simple. Armor works against all physical damage. This means that autoattacks, jungle creeps, minions, tower, and physical damage abilities do less damage to you. Compare that to Magic Resistance which only protects against Magic Damage or Health which generally gives you less effective HP than Armor. As such, here’s part 1 of the rundown on Armor items!

AD or AP – Figuring Out Hybrid Champions

Posted: October 17, 2011 by xenocidebrm in Champions, Items, Metagame

It really does warm my kitty paws to have seen the addition of an AP ratio to Miss Fortune’s ultimate. Hybrid characters have always been a confusing part of the community, but they tend to be the most interesting and flexible of the bunch. Champions like Jax, Katarina, and Nidalee seem to find themselves in heated debate as to whether they ought to be build AD or AP. Very few people are willing to do the math footwork to figure it out, so today I thought I’d walk you readers through some relatively easy math to figure out which builds have the highest DPS and Burst! Even better, I’ve got a pleasant surprise for our readers at the end of the article! (more…)
