During season 3 and 4, I always bought either chalice or tear for my mana problems at the start of the game. But a lot of people think (or so i've heard) that chalice has gotten much worse during the last few patches.
What mana regen item do you buy at the start of an ARAM game?

Bonus question: Why exactly has chalice gotten worse?

Well, chalice costs so much now so I might think that is the "getting worse" part when you cannot catch any AP with it. Yea you can take that support item that gives 5 AP at the start but it is not worth the money.

I personally prefer tear + doran start on any AP I play exp. Heimerdinger when I want to pick that 50% regen thing that builds into Morello. Sometimes I do pick tear on him and it is ok. SO I would say tear + doran is the right pick on any AP caster. Hell, I even run tear on my Panth!

Tear+Morellos on most AP's with 1-2 Clarities on the team is what I usually do.

Starting with Chalice now is so garbage.

I love Athene's Unholy Grail... Its passive makes your mana regenerate really fast :>

Tear is a no-brainer. But honestly I like to start off with a Catalyst the Protector; mainly because it gives you a nice chunk of mana + health, has the lvl up passive AND builds to RoA. So tankiness c:

Personally I often start with a chalice of harmony, boots and a health pot. In this wayI immediately have the mana regen, magic resistance, some movement speed, and a pot for when my health gets low. On my first death I usesually immediately upgrade my chalice of harmony to an athene's unholy grail for the ability power and cooldown reduction.
