5 gold per 10 second items

written by Mossmyr

Table of Contents

  • Introduction

    When are gold per sec items profitable? How long do I have to wait to sell it to make a profit? Should I even buy them?
    These are questions I've asked myself for quite some time, and since I havn't found a good guide on the matter I've decided to make one myself.

    Hope it helps you

  • Summary

    Avarice Blade
    Cost: 750g (400g + 350g)
    Should be upgraded after: 5:00
    Can be sold for profit after: 12:30



    [item=Heart of Gold]
    Cost: 975g (475g + 300g + 200g)
    Should be upgraded after: -0:06
    Can be sold for profit after: 16:14



    [item=Kage's Lucky Pick]
    Cost: 765g (435g + 330g)

    Can be sold for profit after: 12:14



    Philosopher's Stone

    Can be sold for profit after: 13:20

  • Notes

    I hope this made sense to you. I've tried to make it as correct as possible but there are a few flaws with the calculation:

    First, I'm not taking into account the value of having all items put together to one (inventory slots are freed, which should be worth at least something). However, since you buy these items so early in the game, it isn't so important.

    Second, what gold a certain aspect is worth differs somewhat. Ex. the Amplifying Tome gives you 20 ability power for 435g, but it can be upgraded to a lot of stuff (unlike doran's shield, blade and ring). Riot puts a higher price tag on stuff that can be upgraded to make better items.

  • Calculations

    All "Can be sold for profit after" calculations
    ([(Total item cost) - (Total item cost * 0.5)]/0.5)/60
    (5 gold per 10 second items are sold for 50% of their original cost)



    Avarice Blade
    * Avarice Blade (750g) gives +12% critical strike chance and 5 gold per 10 seconds.
    * Brawler's Gloves (400g) gives +8% critical strike chance.
    - 8% critical strike chance = 400g
    --> 12% critical strike chance = 600g
    - Avarice Blade = (12% critical strike chance) + (5 gold per 10 seconds) = 750g
    --> 5 gold per 10 seconds = 150g
    - [150g/(0.5g/s)]/60 seconds = 5:00



    Heart of Gold
    * Heart of Gold (975g) gives 200 health and 27 armor
    * Ruby Crystal (475g) gives 180 health
    * Cloth Armor (300g) gives 18 armor
    - 180 health = 475g
    --> 200 health = 528g
    - 18 armor = 300g
    --> 27 armor = 450g
    - Heart of Gold = (200 health) + (27 armor) + (5 gold per 10 seconds) = 975g
    --> 5 gold per 10 seconds = -3g
    - [-3g/(0.5g/s)]/60 seconds = -0:06



    Kage's Lucky Pick
    * Kage's Lucky Pick (765g) gives 25 ability power and 5 gold per 10 seconds
    * Amplifying Tome (435g) gives 20 ability power
    - 20 ability power = 435g
    --> 25 ability power = 544g
    - Kage's Lucky Pick = (25 ability power) + (5 gold per 10 seconds) = 765g
    --> 5 gold per 10 seconds = 221g
    - [221g/(0.5g/s)]/60 seconds = 7:23



    Philosopher's Stone (800g) gives 22hp/5, 10mp/5 and 5gold/10
    * Faerie Charm (180g) gives 3 mana per 5 second
    * Regrowth Pendant (435g) gives 15 hit points per 5 second
    - 3mp/5 = 180g
    --> 10mp/5 = 600g
    - 15hp/5 = 435g
    --> 22.5hp/5 = 652.5g
    - Philosopher's Stone = (10mp/5) + (22.5hp/5) + (5 gold per 10 seconds) = 800g
    600g + 653g + (5 gold per 10 seconds) = 1253g
    --> 5 gold per 10 seconds = -453g
    - [-453g/(0.5g/s)]/60 seconds = -15:06
