A good number of heros can use SOTM but who should you be getting it on and who should you not? I know someone like can get SOTM but you should NEVER get it.
So the ones that I think you should get it on are
One thing that I think a lot of people over look is that for 4300 you get some pretty good stat increase and for most of the heros being intel the stat gain is really well needed.
Basically, you get it on heroes who get some new function to their ult and not just damage when boosted by sotm. There are some exceptions though, like . Heroes like just get a small boost to their ults damage, so going for some other items is more preferable.
I prefer sotm on these heroes
It is a plain must for these
Ummmmmmmm gonna have to disagree on ur luxary.
Good: Wretched Hag, Chip, Polli, Voodoo, Pharo. I would say ds is also good, but usually never happens cuz im getting other stuff
Pyro and Ws should never get staff waste of teh money.
Chronos=NIEN. U solo team, dont need an xtra atk,
Never on glacius cuz... well... ur glacius....
Sheriff has it right, although i'd add polly into 'prefer'. I'd say it's best on chipper, though. Adds so much in a team fight it's amazing.
There are better items to get for MQ, but SotM takes CD from 160s to 90s. That's a pretty huge difference. I would only say never on Witch / Pyro. There are better items for survival and there are better items for damage for both of them.
I only get :StaffOfTheMastern against :chro:
Sorry about the bad english
Actually it's okayish on Thunderbringer since it causes the ultimate to deal 550 bonus damage in total, guaranteed. If you can get it till around 30 minutes, it should be still good.
Similar for Pyromancer/Witchslayer/Hag. If you can get it fast, it's viable (usually when you've been mid and had a good game getting a lot of hk's through ganking). For Hag it generally can be very useful because of the cooldown reduction, but personally, if I were looking for cooldown reduction I'd go for Behemoth's Heart, since it provides 20 seconds CD reduction on her ult while also reducing Sonar Scream CD by 1 second, compared to SotM which provides 15/35/55 second CD reduction on her Ultimate.

Core on chipper, voodoo, hag, and maybe polly.

Sometimes on Pharaoh and Slither
I wouldn't get it on pyro though. Might as well get sheepstick.
What about Electrician?
It gives the bounce to Cleansing Shock?
Personally I'm a huge fan of SotM on Nymph. Being able to port a full team, or saving that teammate who's being 5-man raped is just golden. I can also bring teammates who just respawned or bought back right back to the other side of the map to join the fight again.
