    I don't quite understand the flat HP seals. They are worse than Scaling HP seals past lvl 6. I guess early game is important, but in the rune section you say that the seals are there to protect you from *lategame* burst. And rightly so, as most of your fights are going to be after you reach lvl 6. So why the flat HP seals? I currently use an approximation of the runes recommended in a previous version of this guide: 5 Scaling HP and 4 armor seals, with 3 AS Quints, all MR Glyphs, and AD Marks + 1 AS Mark.

    Armors are nerfed hard.  Chances are even 20 scaling hp seals late game won't save you from an assassin or bruiser of any sort. The only thing that can protect you late game is positioning and not facechecking. Early game, flats are way better.

    does double bloodthirster work on caitlyn? I've been using it tons of times and I dunno if it works...

    Infinity Edge is better than a second BT

  • #112 LoLMostDope

    The reason for rushing BT is because it gives u a stronger midgame if you compare it to rushing IE, which is why BT is what you usually want to rush. After that you usually get a phantom dancer followed by a last whisper. these are your core items. after that you want to get the infinity edge if youre lacking damage, since youre already having a decent crit chance from the pd. a second bt only gives u more flat ad and more lifesteal which is basically fine, but ie gives you just waay more damage. you might wanna go for a bork instead because of the passive, which scales better into the late. the active is also quite nice for self peeling. fnatic rekkles does the bt + bork build quite frequently, but on lucian not on cait.

     

    TL;DR: IE gives you much more damage late game if youre already having a phantom dancer compared to a second bt which basically only improves ur sustain

     I don't like most builds, soooo. This is my main build for AD. With adjustments as needed under certain circumstances. (not trying to steal a thread or anything just throwing some tips out from experience)

      I made this real quick, its not a perfect description. But it is how i build my AD's so hopefully it can help you. Its Grape city for me XD. Experiment that's the only way you can find something better than what most people use. GL HF!

    Runaans is a horrible horrible item. I am not going to discuss this issue, as this has been accepted by a major part of the Lol community. Blade of the Ruined king is situational. The appropriate build path is everything you suggested minus Runaan's and Botrk and plus boots. The sixth item slot is 100% situational. Mercurial Scimitar, Banshee's, Frozen Mallet and hell, maybe Randuin's Omen can go there, it's mainly an anti assassin item (in my opinion). I'm not too familiar with boot substitution (I never do it) but the thing that makes a good AD carry a good AD carry is positioning, which I assume is a lot harder if you replaced your boots with say, RUNAAN'S HURRICANE.

    Hello, I wanted to ask someone with experience as Caitlyn this question. Provided one would sacrifice one or two quintessences for Life steal ones, would build BF Sword -> Stattik -> IE be good? My friend who plays Caitlyn lot was really frustrated, as clasical build BT -> PD -> LW did not work for him, making him feel like he does no damage to enemy tanks. So I thought that what he needs would be IE, but because how hard it is to get IE done, as until completion you would be behind anyone who goes for BT, I thought of making statik after buying BF sword, for better poke and to make it safer for you. As IE with Shiv has 15% more crit than BT + PD, and 50% bonus damage on crit(which applies to magic damage from shiv as well), i have seen this as viable option. Would going IE first be better?

  • #94 thechosenone124

    Statikk Shiv is an inferior buy on her because the main drawis the waveclear but Caitlyn is in no need of more of that. IE will always be the first thing to rush. Stalling something in the middle especially something as large as a Statikk Shiv, will severely damage Caitlyn. Caitlyn's incredible power comes the moment she buys IE. I can understand why Bloodthirster's price akes it more attractive, but just because it hellps you faster doesn't mean its good (5 doran's blades also give a nice early boost). It's only 600 gold more expensive, and you're just gonna have to tough it out (if you want to weaken the severity of it's impact, buy some doran's blades)

    JK shiv is awesome

    "For your first core item, you should get The Bloodthirster or Infinity Edge for the damage output. Bloodthirster is recommended because it adds a lot of damage."

    Not to nag, but doesn't IE provide more damage than BT? I was under the impression that BT offered better sustain and IE offered more damage, assuming you don't get really unlucky with your crit procs. I usually go BT first, but for the sustain and getting the stacks early, not the damage.

    It just seemed off to me that you're recommending choosing BT over IE "because it adds a lot of damage."

  • #95 RioStorm13

    a fully stacked BT gives 100 AD and extra lifesteal. IE gives 70 AD, 25% crti chance. and crits do more damage. but BT fully stacked does more reliable damage

  • #96 thechosenone124

    With IE alone, you have a 25% chance of dealing 250% damage. Lets assume Caitlyn has no AD from anything but one item (no base stats). Bloodthirster's damage in 4 autoattacks will deal 280 to 400 damage depending on stacks. IE will deal 385 in 4 autoattacks (assuming one crit because its 25% and 4 atttacks). It will take 27 stacks on BT before it beats infinity edge in damage.

    I ignored the value of the lifesteal in this case, but at the same time I also ignored the fact that Caitlyn has AD from other sources, like base stats, runes masteries etc and remember crit chance scales with attack damage. Also, unreliability works both ways. The chance that you won't crit in 4 autoattacks is the same as the chance that you will crit twice in 4 autoattacks.
