Statikk Shiv ADC builds triumph after fall of Smolder in LoL Patch 14.6

An item that caused commotion in League of Legends for a large part of last season is once again gaining relevance, but this time it’s not entirely due to how quickly it can remove waves of minions.

ADC players are actively experimenting with bringing back Statikk Shiv as a primary item for certain champions in an attempt to increase the early-game power of marksmen in a post-Smolder meta. Though the item hasn’t been directly buffed or nerfed in several patches, it now stands out among others not only due to the stats it provides but how good of an investment it is.
