==Usage==
 
* {{ii|Death's Dance}}'s is intended for [[attack damage]] [[League of Legends terminology#C|casters]] who mostly deal [[physical damage]]. It's best used when looking for an aggressive sustain item, with the advantage over [[life steal]] that its sustain passive isn't restricted to [[basic attack]]s only.
 
** Generally for {{tip|melee}} [[champion]]s, [[life steal]] is most needed if the enemy [[champion]] is in possession of strong [[League of Legends terminology#Poke|poke]]. At the same time as [[life steal]] helps you sustain this damage though, it forces you to [[basic attack]] [[minion]]s, putting yourself into the poke range of the enemy. As such, unless you can outsustain the poke, the [[life steal]] itself might be rendered useless. By granting [[spell vamp]] on [[Champion ability|abilities]] on the other hand, {{ii|Death's Dance}} allows you to regenerate while minimizing the enemy's window to poke.
 
** As {{ii|Death's Dance}}'s [[spell vamp]] component is reduced for [[area of effect]] [[Champion ability|abilities]] , this component is most useful when mainly dealing [[unit-targeted]] [[damage]].
 
* {{ii|Death's Dance}} second passive has to be judged critically, as its [[damage over time]] will interrupt [[channel]]s that are interrupted by [[damage]] (e.g. {{ai|Behind Enemy Lines|Quinn}}), and delay [[Champion ability|abilities]] that are delayed by [[damage]] (e.g. {{cai|Ambush|Twitch}}).
 
** This unique passive's usage is best realized, when looking at a simplified situation where an opponent inflicts instant burst damage onto you. By transforming 30% of the incoming damage into a [[damage over time]] effect, it is equal to a [[health]] multiplicator of e.g. {{tt|23.6%|till 1 second after taking damage}} or {{tt|11.8%|till 2 seconds after taking damage}}.
 
*** As a result, your opponent has to [[League of Legends terminology#O|overkill]] you to actually finish you off within this time span, which slightly increases your time to react and deploy counter measures like [[shield]]s or [[healing]]. At the same time it also slightly improves your time window for retaliation, and is as such most powerful in a fight between two {{tip|slayer|assassins}}.
 
*** Regardless, it's important to not overestimate this unique passive's influence, as most {{tip|slayer|assassins}} generally [[League of Legends terminology#O|overkill]] an opponent, and as such aren't hindered by slightly increased [[health]].

Cost Analysis

Gold Value

Gold Efficiency*

  • Death's Dance item Death's Dance is 114.77% gold efficient, without its second passive.


Similar Items


Notes

  • The bleed can Silence icon interrupt and delay certain spells (e.g, Perseverance Perseverance, Recall Recall).
  • The passive heal is the same effect as Hextech Gunblade item Hextech Gunblade's, and stacks additively with it, granting 30% healing on all damage.
  • Damage dealt to a Hybrid resistances icon shield is fully applied and does not store damage.
  • Each tick of damage received is stored and dealt individually, regardless on when other hits were received.

Strategy

  • As Death's Dance item Death's Dance's ability drain component is reduced for area of effect abilities, this component is most useful when mainly dealing unit-targeted damage.
  • The unique passive's usage is best realized when looking at a simplified situation where an enemy inflicts instant burst damage onto you. By transforming 30% of the incoming damage into a damage over time effect, it is equal to a health multiplicator of e.g. 23.6% or 11.8%.
    • As a result, your opponent has to overkill you to actually finish you off within this time span, which slightly increases your time to react and deploy counter measures like shields or healing. At the same time it also slightly improves your time window for retaliation, and is as such most powerful in a fight between two Slayer icon assassins.
      • Regardless, it's important to not overestimate this unique passive's influence, as most Slayer icon assassins generally overkill an opponent, and as such aren't hindered by slightly increased health.
