  • This item is often built as a form of "anti-tank" item used to counter health-stacking champions (or champions that scale well in health) such as Shen Shen, Dr Dr. Mundo, Volibear Volibear, Zac Zac, and Taric Taric.
  • Blade of the Ruined King can be seen as a soft defensive item, as its active offers high utility. Depending on the situation, it can be used to lock down a target, evade skillshots, or most importantly, improve kiting. * Champions who are highly dependent on basic attacks (Master Yi Master YiJax JaxTristana Tristana, etc.) often build this item due to the attack speed, lifesteal, and the passive that helps boost their autoattacks.
  • Champions with an attack speed steroid like Master Yi Master Yi, Quinn Quinn, Xin Zhao Xin Zhao, Nocturne Nocturne or champions with on-hit effect abilities like Shyvana Shyvana, Warwick Warwick, Renekton Renekton, Yasuo Yasuo, Yone Yone can synergize well with Blade of the Ruined King, making better use of the passive.
    • Champions that autoattack and deal true damage also benefit from the passive on Blade of the Ruined King, as the best counter to true damage is to build health
      • However, being able to constantly autoattack is still the foremost criteria. Prime examples are Olaf Olaf, Irelia Irelia or Master Yi Master Yi.
    • AD Casters can also consider picking this item up as a side item for extra damage and sustain vs HP targets, but only if they have abilities that directly synergize with auto attacks via applying on-hit effects (e.g. Renekton's Renekton's Ruthless Predator Ruthless Predator, Jax's Jax's Empower Empower and Wukong's Wukong's Crushing Blow Crushing Blow). *** Even then, a majority of users of this item also often combine it with the likes of a Spellblade-proc'ing item such as Trinity Force Trinity Force.
  • Thornmail Thornmail and Frozen Heart Frozen Heart are strong counters to Blade of the Ruined King, as both provide armor and an attack speed slow; in the former's case, it provides a Grievous Wounds effect that counters BotRK's lifesteal. The latter's case has more armor and also has its attack speed slow in the form of an aura.
    • However, when combined with lethality or any other form of defense-stat bypass, the HP-based damage will punch through easily in most cases against a variety of targets.
