Thanks for the explanation Hamster, I see what you mean now. And while the damage is reduced, I don't think that means it is a mediocre build as you said, IMO it is just as situational as before - where it was good before it still is, even if less great. Drow was nerfed for a reason, and the nerfs feel quite strongly now (from her huge win rate before 7.00 to 40% win rate and less contested in the last big tournament shows that clearly).

There's no comparison to be had to Gyro IMO because the heroes are completely different and strong in different ways (split attack is not enough of a similarity for the purpose of talking about this build, you don't pick Drow because you can get Aghs on her, you pick her because you want strong push, etc.) Getting Aghs/Mjoll in the late game on a Drow isn't saying you want her to suddenly transform into an AoE magical damage dealer either - I think the build is used mainly to help her become a bit less single target in late game team fights and have more damage against high armor values, since her late game is her weakness after the power spike of the "buildings down" phase - and the item builds quite naturally to her since it gives very good +80 attack speed and both attack and magical damage (there are probs more reasons as well, Idk).

I tried telsa drow recently, and it does seem to still work. It's less powerful than before, but still does what it's supposed to do, which is clear creeps instantly and deal ****tons of AoE and magic damage. I feel that the build is still viable, and can be considered for drow games.
