Dominance for consistency
Bloodforge for survivability
This build has been what most pro adc players have been using, the build is extremely good and is the main reason adc's are saying they feel stronger this season.
Leather Cowl gives insane atk spd% and lifesteal for early game clear, its movement speed really helps with getting fed and into the team fight faster and sometimes can actually save you from assassin ganks (sometimes not even needing to outplay).
Transcendence is insanely powerful due to most adc starters giving not much mp5 or mana, personally I would always build devourers gauntlet over this, but you gain so much lifesteal from Leather Cowl and that it becomes obsolete.
Wind Demon is insane this season due to having 5% more crit and the extra atk spd% lets you pop off early game.
Fail-Not is a core item for winning 1v1's and setting up the entire kit by mainly giving 20%cdr and 20-35% crit and 10% pen.
Shadowsteel Shuriken is pretty much required for ADC's to give anti-heal and for some reason this season got buffed to be even more powerful.
Hunter's Cowl is just a generic upgrade that makes you EVEN MORE POWERFULLLL!!!
Lastly, Pick either Dominance for the final nail in the coffin to nuke tanky gods or pick Bloodforge if the enemy team has nobody building protections and have insane survivability (usually against bad players for padding stats).
In Conclusion, I was kinda bummed out that this was the only really working adc build this season. From my research, I found that there was no real reason to drift away from using other items than in the ones listed in the build. When you're the main damage dealer the only thing that is important when it comes to surviving is eliminating the threats (and lifestealing like a mf)..
For Season 8, you will want to typically help Red Buff with Middle, then rotate to Purple buff, then into your lane. For Early game, you should always focus minions, and work on getting fed as possible. Make sure to get wards for the scorpion and enemy jungle after you return to the fountain.
