Because assassin's kits are built to get in get out.

If you're not getting out, you're not doing it right.

If you're killing their fed squishy damage dealer and dying, is that enough for the rest of your team to go in and win the fight? If the answer is no, don't dive and die.


This is not a "omg nerf hourglass" thread.... or a learn to play issue. Its a question about whether the mechanic of hourglass should be available to AD assassins as well as AP assassins. The truth is AD assassins dont have as much available to them. If they just made a non-ap or non-ad specific item what would be the harm?

Zhonyas is already quite overpowered when you consider how Riot would rush to nerf anything that impacted mages as much as Zhonyas does Assassins.

AD assassins have the "oh combo finished? still gunna slap you for as much damage as a late game ADC anyway"

so they nuke someone out and can still keep fighting, esp with lifesteal being free on most of their most used items. whereas AP assassins only have combo then HG in hopes that they can get another combo off...or they are kat and their combo never ends.
