For a while between the May and August patches, the only tier 3 raw magic pierce item was Soaring Aura, meaning many players would build into Spoopy Mask and only switch to something else at the end of the game. Virtue’s Necklace was also mostly a useless item, as The Aegis was almost always simply better if players needed 20% CDR. So they tweaked Virtue’s Necklace, giving it the magic pierce that was lacking in the game.

Unfortunately, Virtue’s Necklace doesn’t have the raw ability power that Hecate’s Diadem once had, so you’ll have to start memorizing numbers if you want to know the best item to choose between it and Staff of Nuul (see below). Otherwise, trying to mix mana and magic pierce is not the greatest idea, as most supports don’t need magic pierce and most mages don’t need mana in the late game, when their mana and mana regen scaling far outweigh the mana cost of abilities.

Recommended Heroes and/or Situation:

A lot of the time, you’re better off with Staff of Nuul, Soaring Aura, or The Aegis. That said, if you’ve built Spoopy’s Mask and have invested into Enchanted Kicks as well, then Virtue’s Necklace’s magic pierce will be more effective than Staff of Nuul’s as long as the target has lower than 263 magic defense. If you have 10 Flurry and 10 Violate as well as Enchanted Kicks, then that number goes to 350.
