Why would you ever build Guardian's Blessing or buy Chalice of Healing in Arena? You're just wasting gold because the fountain is so close and neither is likely to keep you alive.

Then dont use it. Ive posted two ways to start. Id recommend trying it though since its easy as **** to evolve and when it does it basically gives you passive gold for the minion assists. Ultimately it gives you a big gold boost and pays for itself. Ive played games with and without it and its pretty obvious a big impact when you have it. Plus the early game health and regen is nice.

Chalice is nice, dont use it if you dont like it. I dont give a ****, that what I use and I like it.

Ya know, I'd never consider the blessing, but TBH although the chalice is waaaay outside the norm, you're going to be able to refill it regularly and now it stacks rather than just reset the duration, so it CAN help if you need to back out of a fight for a short while, but don't want to just back.

Not saying this would be a normal pickup for me, but it COULD be somewhat useful. I probably wouldn't advertise its use in a build though.

The blessing has actually worked for me when I played warrior/guardian in a comp with lots of wave clear. It did give me some OK returns (not a lot, but still something)
