Viability / General Use: High viability. Popular stacking item for physical basic attackers looking for high health sustain.

Advantages: Reasonable cost, high power and lifesteal at full stacks.

Disadvantages: No penetration, no attack speed, requires stacking.

Restrictions: Physical gods only.

Discussion: This is a strong lifesteal item for basic attackers that also provides good power at full stacks. Due to the requirement for stacking, it is best purchased early in a build, and in modes with longer laning phases (e.g. Conquest).

Ajax tweet says Devo's is getting a buff in 4.15 (patch notes on Wednesday) MUCH of a buff? Does the passive change, or are numbers just increasing? Maybe we see the same end stats but in 50 stacks instead of 75?

Depending on how much of a buff it is, this might be able to stay in my Medusa kit, though she's still feeling the aftereffects of losing Fatalis.

Really? I do not think this item was wrong at any time (when I buy it I do not dislike it). I hope and just touch the fact that they are 50 stacks instead of 75 as you mention, I would be very disgusted to return the ADC's that heal infinite ( Devourer's Gauntlet + Asi + Bloodforge = OMG).

Getting 3 lifesteal items drops DPS to a degree...other items provide a lot of utility or other aspects that would generally be superior to 3x lifesteal. You still need movespeed (either 1 or 2 items depending), a strong pen item, and either Qin's or 2x crit items...3x lifesteal usually means you have to drop one of these.

As for the item itself, it's not bad...but it's recently been viewed as a bit inferior to other options. For whatever reason, people have been skipping lifesteal altogether (WHYYYY?!? I LOVE LIFESTEAL ON HUNTERS!!!), and going for stronger early potential. Trans provides higher burst due to the higher power, or if people don't go with stacking, they might go from Warrior Tabi directly into Ichaival or Silverbranch Bow. Those items are just superior in DPS to Devo's at the time they're built.

But we're seeing HR try to shift the game from early to mid/late, hence all of the recent changes, tower/phoenix buffs, jungle camp/gold fury XP/gold nerfs, etc. Devo's takes longer to stack and NEEDS those stacks to be advantageous. Personally, that feels like it fits right in with their general strategy. But it's seen less use, so they're probably buffing it to give it more appeal again. You know how they do things.

So hopefully they don't destroy the item...minor touches to make it a bit better, make it come online a bit earlier, things like that would be great. They don't need to increase end power, total lifesteal amount, add movespeed, or straight up change the passive. We'll see what happens.

This is still a really good life steal item.
Why does no one use it?

It's decent, but it takes too long to stack. Asi gives you a lot of relevant stats much sooner, and the power that Gauntlet gives you isn't the most important, seeing how much power we get from other items anyways.

The 25% life steal is amazing.

When you kill something you get a stack.
Master_Azarael | November 18, 2012 12:08pm
It doesn't say how to make it stack. Like does it give you another stack when you kills an enemy hero or creep? >.<
How do you get stacks!
