I find myself using this regularly on Odin, Chaac, Hercules, Thor and Bellona.

Hi there! Why don't add 15 magical resistance to the item, making it more balanced (no changes in any other stat).

It had +15 in the past. In the early game, Mid laners were having some difficulty fighting back an invading jgler due to the +15 magic protections. So it was removed.

There IS a purpose to the stats, as this is really meant not to be an "all-in-one" hybrid item for squishy gods to provide protection against all sources (while still providing potentially high power). It's more obviously targeted against higher physical threat.

Although you're only talking 15 magical protection in the base stats, it DOES turn it into an easier, balanced solution for squishy gods.

And if we consider its current state, we'd be looking at 70 power + 15 phys prot + 15 mag prot OR 35 power + 50 phys prot + 50 mag prot. That's quite strong for 2,400 gold, IMO. And yes, 15 mag prot isn't a huge amount, but I think Shifter's may be in a solid, balanced spot as-is.

I'd be curious to hear others' opinions.

They definitely should reduce drastically the % to "switch" the power for defenses. They should do something like Blackthorn (25%). That's the only thing I would change on this item.

What item is this good on?
And whys it not picked up?

I'd consider this item on an assassin with good scalings. Bastet is the first that comes to mind. She'll benefit greatly from the 60 power, and if she gets caught, the extra protections when hurt could possibly save her life.

Fenrir is another, and maybe Thor.

I've been using it on Thor because Void Shield interferes with Titan's Bane
This item is still really good. I don't understand why it doesn't see more play.
Look at the stats.

While over 50% health you have 60 power and 15 protections.

While under 50% health you have 40 power and 35 protections.

Has that cleared things up for you.

Idiotic question incoming. This item in total gives
60 power over 50%
And 35 magical and physical in total? 15 is pretty low

Does the power remain the same even if you fall below?
