On a broader note lifesteal appears to be dead, with serpent mask being brutally forced into the meta by giving it 100 base wp, and heroes like krul and baptiste only meta due to their stickinesss/ cc…
But let’s talk about Eve of Harvest, I don’t really see a single hero for whom this is a core item (in the first 3 damage items of their build)
So the long story is- junglers such as koshka and alpha are gonna be going Aftershock, Dragon’s Eye/ spellfire, and broken myth
Mid laners like Samuel and Celeste will likely go dragons eye, clockwork/ spellfire, broken myth
Tankier semi carries like Grumpjaw or top laners (taka, Ozo, Catherine) will be seen with aftershock, stormcrown, tension bow (usually two of the 3) and a whole heap of defence.
Alas, even the classic candidates for Eve, the auto attack cp carries like Varya, Vox and Crystal Idris usually have to resign Eve to their fourth item slot (if they get it at all) because the passive from AC, dragons eye and Broken Myth are just superior, and with the sustain granted from the crystal buff along with healing flask, and the ineffectiveness of lifesteal in counter to the ridiculous burst damage possible in 5v5, Eve just has no place on hypercarries or tanks…
TL;DR, a crystal item that’s main benefit is lifesteal and that only provides as much damage as a heavy prism has no place in the meta; it took 100wp to Male serpent’s mask effective, I see no way that Eve can survive with 55 without a buff to this number, or maybe an increase in the size of its passive +25% lifesteal pool (I’ve literally used this with one heliogenesis lol ).
