Someone can buy something as simple as merc treds and you will feel your damage crippled on any mage, let alone hexdrinker and other stuff. Full on tanks/bruisers can eat multiple rotations at end game build.
Armour? don't even buy it you will die even if you are malphite with full armour items and over 600 armour you will still die to an adc so you may aswell play malphite how i play malphite with very low armour and very high hp/ap.
That's the state of the game right now.
