Cost Analysis

Gold Value
  • 15 armor = 300 Gold 300
  • Total Gold Value = 300 Gold 300

Gold efficiency

  • Cloth Armor Cloth Armor is the basic item from which the gold value for the stat armor is deviated (approximately 20 Gold 20 per point of armor).

Strategy

  • Solo melee champions sometimes start the game with Cloth Armor Cloth Armor to improve lane sustainability.
    • The other common defensive start for such champions is Doran's Shield Doran's Shield. The choice between the two comes down to whether one prefers the 80 flat health, 6 health regeneration, and 8 less damage from champion basic attacks that Doran's Shield Doran's Shield offers, or the 15 armor and 200 left over gold that Cloth Armor Cloth Armor provides, which can be used to purchase wards wards and potions potions.
      • Generally, unless you need the 80 extra health for trading, going Cloth Armor Cloth Armor + 4 potions potions is a better laning choice, as the 6 HP/5 will take 8 minutes and 20 seconds to equalize 4 potions' 600 health regen, the 8 less damage from autoattacks does nothing against AD casters, and does not build into anything.
