Ofc with the recent int nerf, that almost never happens anyway unless you rush guinsoo or something lol.
it has everything do with armor( and magic resistant). Damage taken up by mana sheild is unreduced.
so for nukes, its about the same (190 hp = 253 mana)
for attackes, once u get above 5 armor, its better to have it on str treads
5 armor: 190 hp = 254 mana
6 armor: 190 hp = 269 mana'
so, with 5 or less armour, keep it on int threads, 6 and above have it on str when not casting snake.
