What killed Thornmail?
I can never see it built anymore.

  • It's expensive and cost-inefficient.
  • You'd only buy it on a tank.
  • The passive sucks.
  • It only works well against carries, but the damage return it deals is pretty negligible as the carry can easily mitigate it with lifesteal.
  • People have to be focusing you for it to even be the least bit useful, and if no one doesn't, you just wasted money. And no one with a brain will focus on the tank.
  • You could buy an item like Frozen Heart for almost the same amount of armor and more and a better passive that benefits your team.

The only scenario I'd imagine myself buying it is when the enemy team consists of 5 AD and I often find myself being focused. But, personally, if I'm the center of attention, I'd rather buy a Randuin's.

As Veloze said. In addition, there is the fact that resistances are shittier with season 3 and penetration changes. Seeing that Thornmails is essentially raw armor, there's no health backing up the health-hungry meta that we have now.
