(Liandrys only core if you are winning lane)
If you are against an ap you can get [items/abyssal-scepter.png] to get some defences and damage at the same time, if you are doing really well get
(liandrys will do an extra 5% dot damage with rylai's slow. If you are top I recommend you going
to maximize damage).
will lower the enemies mr, give you ap and also a lot of mr to survive burst champions such as
, together with haunting guise, sorcerers shoes, runes and masteries you'll end up doing a huge bunch of damage to most of the enemies and at the same time being a bit tankier vs mages. You can get Void Staff instead of abyssal but you are gonna be squishier and easily bursted. With the season 3 update void staff works really well with flat magic pen (not with abyssal).
will make you tankier, give you ap and also give you an incredible passive. As elise, rylais slow comes really handy it will allow you to combo and stick to target much easier. Rylais passive is what makes this item better than RoA, and the fact that you have to wait 10 min for RoA to become fully effective.
If you are mid this is core together with abyss and rylais, you should rush this if your lane is weak and you think you can kill him with the extra damage. To make full effectiveness of this item, get a rylais. Rylais slow will make your liandrys dot 5% more damage, increasing from 5 to 10 %. If your lane has a lot of burst avoid rushing this item, you can rush haunting guise and then abyss, when you finish the abyss you can finish you liandrys torment. Liandrys passive will proc with your spiderlings AA and your AA if you have the Spellsword masteries from offense.
If your enemy team doesn't have much CC and like AP top/mid and jungle or such.
It'll help you burst down champions with its Magic Penetration
If behind in laning phase and against any AP Champ going hard on you, go this option for boots.
If your enemy team got tons of CC(Stun,Slows, Snares, Silence, etc.)
If they got tons of fed AD champs. The Armor will also help you in the laning phase if trading with any AA(Auto Attack) melee champions like
Usually go Ninja Tabi when you're behind against Aatrox or champions like him, the 10% less dmg from all auto attacks really come in handy!
Cool Unique Passive with dmg over time burn of %HP.
Magic Penetration and Health is great on Elise...
