This is one of many examples of pro play where pros build Oblivion Orb first into Sylas (even on champions such as Akali) and then go onto finishing Morellonomicon instead of just opting to sit on Oblivion Orb and finish more damage items such as Void Staff.

If anything, this specific example makes it clear that even the first base Oblivion Orb instead of components for Lost Chapter likely was not worth it. Really feels like an early Oblivion Orb into Sylas is huge bait, but would love to hear/see evidence to the contrary as maybe I am missing something.

you know what's even crazier, look at the top reply to the tweet. it's Phreak, who has historically been relatively pro-grievous wounds, agreeing that it's a trash buy in this context of ranged vs melee.

then, he gets 3x ratioed by an objectively incorrect reply that claims he previously defended orb in ranged vs melee. that's just f**king wild LOL. pretty obvious where the circlejerk is coming from as well.
