That is another interesting topic to discuss. As you know, League of Legends is a team fighting game. In order to get stronger and deal more damage in the game, you need some essential items. They can be different depending on what champion you play. The build you have in mind and your overall strategy.
In today’s article, you will read about the ten most popular items picked by League players globally. The characteristics of the equipment and their general purpose. It is important to note that in the article. All the items will be complete late-game ones. You will not see things like wards, potions, or starting items like Doran blade. If you’re also interested, here’s a quick list of the best items against tanks in LoL
Number 10 Deaths Dance
Deaths dance is the 10th most popular item picked globally by LoL gamers. The popularity rate of this blade is 6.3 percent, and the win rate is 57.7 percent.
The core stats of the item are as follows:
The item gives you plus 55 attack damage, plus 15 ability haste, and plus 45 armor.
Deaths Dance has two unique passives as its specific abilities. The first one is called “Ignore pain.” In its essence, this passive stores 30 percent for melee users and 10 % for marksmen of all post-mitigation physical and magic damage they receive. That includes on shields, which is consecutively taken as true damage over 3 seconds instead, dealing a third of the stored damage each second.
The second passive is “Defy.” What it does is basically clean the first passive “Ignore pain” damage reserves and restore about 175 percent of it as Hp over two seconds. This passive activates only if you damage and accordingly kill an enemy.
The item cost 3300 gold and sells for 2310. The path to build is consists of 3 lesser items. In order to get it, you first need to buy a pickaxe ( 875 gold), chains vest ( 800 gold), and Caulfield’s Warhammer ( 1100 gold).
Manamune is ranked ninth.
Manamune is the 9th item in this ranking. Similar to Death’s Dance, it has a high popularity rate of 6.4% and a win rate of 51.4%.
Manamune stats are: + 35 attack damage, + 15 ability hase,
Plus 500 mana.
This item has three passives, two of which are unique.
The first one is “Awe.” This one simply grants you attack damage for 2.5 percent of your maximum mana.
The second is called “Mana Charge.” As its name suggests, this one produces charges every 8 seconds. It has a maximum capacity of four charges. Each of them increases the mana you have by 3 for hitting enemies or allies, and this bonus doubles if it affects a champion. The cap is 360 mana, which you will gain as a bonus. That comes in handy given the fact that the first passive adds damage based on your mana capacity.
The last one is quite simple but still great passive. The item, similar to others, has the ability to transform itself. In this case, once you collect the 360 bonus, Manamune will transform into Muramama.
Manamune costs 2900 gold and can be sold later on for 2030. Again, it is composed mainly of 3 other items. They are the Tear of the Goddess (400 gold coins ), Caufield’s Warhammer (1100 g ), and the long sword ( 350 gold ).
Infinity Edge is the eight-item
That is one of the most popular build items for ad champions. The rate it has is 6.5%, and the win rate percentage is 50.82%.
Infinity Edge’s core stats are + 70% attack damage and a 20% critical strike chance.
This item has only one passive. It is called “Perfection,” and in its essence, it gives you another 35 percent of critical strike damage. But only if you meet the minimal requirement of a 60% critical strike chance.
To build it, you have to get yourself a B.F. Sword (1300 gold ), a Pickaxe (875 gold), and a Cloak of Agility ( 600 g coins ). The total price for Infinity Edge is 3400 gold, and you can sell it for 2380 coins.
Seventh place goes for Goredrinker
This amazing item is ranked seventh, with a popularity of 6.7 percent and a win rate of 49.6 percent.
The base stats are +55 attack damage, +10% omnivamp, +300 HP, and a bonus of 20 ability haste.
This item has one normal passive and one passive for its mythic traits.

The Collector is number five.
One of my personal favorite items is the collector, who is popular among ads and some fighters and assassins. The popularity rate of this item is 7 percent. The winning percentage is 55 percent.
The passive of the collector is “death and taxes.” In short, this passive has the ability to execute enemies with whom you are engaged. The only condition is that you have to leave them on under 5% of their HP. Once this condition is met, they will get executed, and you will gain an additional 25 gold for that.
To make it, you’ll need Serrated Dirk ( 1100 gold ), a Pickaxe ( 875 gold ), and an agility cloak ( 600 gold ). The item costs 3000 total and can be sold for 2100 gold.
The fourth place in our ranking goes to Shieldbow of Immortality
Marksman and Yasuo players favor him. The Immortal Shieldbow is a great life-saving item.
The core stats of this piece are + 50 AD, + 10% life stea, + 20% attack speed, and + 20% critical strike chance.
This item has two passives. The regular one is “Lifeline,” and the mythic one is “Altar.” The first gives you a great shield, which decays over three seconds. To activate it, you must take damage that causes you to lose less than 30% of your health. At the same time, it increases your ad based on your level for 8 seconds.

The honorable second place goes to Galeforce
Another one of the ADC favorites. Galeforce is one of the most mobile items out there. It enables Adcs to easily avoid attacks. Or jump in for a finisher.
Base stats: +60 AD, +20 % Attack Speed, +20 % Critical Strike Chance
The passives have a “Cloudburst,” which allows you to dash to a target location while at the end of the dash it deals magic damage for each missile shot. In addition to the damage, it added 46 % of your AD, which is also increased by the target’s missing HP.

The basic stats of Zhonya’s are + 65 AP, + 10 Ability Haste, and + 45 Armor.
