I've seriously started to dislike HoTBL and I want to find a way to replace it for something 'more useful' mid/late game as imo HoTBL is just a very good core early/mid game and whenever people are starting to dish out the real damage this item is a 2K waste. Maybe I'm wrong, in that case could someone explain to me why it is used by so many in so many games? Cause as far as I know it blocks a tiny bit of damage every attack if you got charges and give some regeneration bonus and 300 hp ( which is good but don't matter tons lategame obviously )
What do you use instead for survavibility early on? Please, let it be something I can build on later if possible.
