Bran, let's discuss this item and compare it to bulwark of hope.

Yes, bulwark's health shield passive and CCR are clutch AF, but pestilence has 20 more defense than bulwark (that cancels out a flat pen item) and is cheaper too.

So why don't you like pestilence outside of countering healing?

A good point to discuss: How useful pestilence is when the enemy does not have any significant healing source? (Huge lifesteal or healing)

Not useful except for fire giant buff but at that point it would be better to apply Beatstick/divine as relying on pestilence aura would be too risky.

Still has +20 more defense than bulwark and is cheaper. That cancels out a void stone or spear of desolation or divine ruin
