Ring of the Fiend is less of a support item and more of a standalone item, its heavy stat package offering a gold efficiency nearing 100% before even considering any of its three unique effects. In fact, even non-supports (who happen to deal magic damage) could make good use of this item as a comeback tool if they have a particularly rough early game (assuming no one else on the team has taken a support item).

That said, Eye of the Fiend is a fantastic support tool, granting all-important vision on a relatively short cooldown.

Recommended Heroes and/or Situation:

Wind items are to be taken over water items when your hero is heavily focused on roaming: gaining vision of the enemy for your team while setting up ganks. Wage helps gain back some of the gold and experience lost by roaming, while Distinction rewards successful ganks.

Ring of the Fiend is for the ultra-aggressive support, offering the ability power, cooldown speed, movement speed, and vision to hunt down unsuspecting enemies as you roam the map looking for blood.

Good item if you don’t want to facecheck brushes and useful on heroes like Alice, Annette and Peura.
Better than Essence of the wind? Sometimes, maybe?
