Extended Build


The "Lifesteal Rama Build" I've listed includes a selection of items focused on enhancing Rama's sustain and survivability through lifesteal, along with some utility and defensive options. Let's break down each item and discuss why it's included in this build for Rama:

1. Leader's Cowl: This item provides physical power, health, and health regeneration. The health regeneration helps Rama sustain himself in lane or during jungle clears, especially in the early game when sustain can be crucial.

2. Evolved Devourer's Gauntlet: This item is a staple for lifesteal-focused builds. It provides a significant amount of physical power and lifesteal, with its passive allowing Rama to stack additional lifesteal as he farms minions and monsters. This greatly enhances his sustain in fights and while clearing jungle camps.

3. Crimson Claws: These boots provide Rama with additional physical power and attack speed. The increased attack speed synergizes well with his basic attack-focused kit, allowing him to deal more damage and proc lifesteal more frequently.

4. Asi: Asi offers physical lifesteal, attack speed, and penetration. The lifesteal from Asi further amplifies Rama's sustain, while the attack speed helps him stack his passive more quickly and deal damage more rapidly in fights. The penetration also improves his damage output against enemy targets.

5. Envenomed Executioner: This item provides physical power, attack speed, and penetration. The passive reduces the enemy's physical protection upon hitting them with basic attacks, synergizing well with Rama's basic attack-focused playstyle and enhancing his damage output, especially against tankier targets.

6. Bloodforge: Bloodforge offers a significant amount of physical power and additional lifesteal. Its passive provides a shield upon scoring a kill or assist, which can help Rama survive burst damage or prolonged engagements by providing a temporary buffer of additional health.

7. Aegis of Acceleration: This item provides physical protections, cooldown reduction, and crowd control reduction. The physical protections help Rama mitigate incoming damage, especially from enemy hunters or physical assassins. The cooldown reduction allows him to use his abilities more frequently, while the crowd control reduction reduces the duration of enemy crowd control effects, improving his survivability in team fights.

8. Temporal Beads: This item provides additional crowd control reduction and movement speed. The crowd control reduction further enhances Rama's ability to resist enemy crowd control effects, allowing him to maintain his mobility and damage output in fights. The movement speed also aids in his positioning and kiting potential.

Overall, this "Lifesteal Rama Build" prioritizes sustain, survivability, and damage output, allowing Rama to stay alive longer in fights while dealing significant damage through basic attacks enhanced by lifesteal and penetration. Additionally, the defensive and utility items included in the build provide Rama with extra survivability and crowd control reduction, further enhancing his effectiveness in team fights.

If you think this guide and build helped you then I'm glad.
Have a nice day and a great game :).

playing full lifesteal is really bad antiheal is meta so you will deal no damage and never really heal so it's useless

Hey Astro,

Don't do this. 5x lifesteal items is awful. You'll be hard-countered with anti-heal, and while you at least have pen (Exe), you're lacking in other items that help your DPS, e.g. Qin's Sais.
