I have been thinking about this for quite some time now. When I have my Ionian Boots of Lucidity and I got "Hextech Revolver" as well as "Rylai's Crystal Scepter" and Rabadon's Deathcap what path should I take with the "Hextech Revolver" and why? Is it situational or is one choice better than the other?
Here is my thought process:
The "Hextech Gunblade" provides me with almost the same amount of AP with a little AD which is nice, but not that great in my AP build. The gunblade also has a short cooldown ability that adds more burst for that little extra kick when you need it.
The "Will of the Ancients" gives me 10 AP more and also adds an Aura so I boost my teammates AP by 30 and give them 20% spell vamp. In addition to that this item costs 1125 gold less to build.
I can see that the Hextech Gunblade is better by itself, but is it worth the extra money you have to invest to get it?
