: If that were true burst mages would be meta but they're the weakest of the AP group outside of dead champs like Taliyah. DPS and control mages are the dominant choices. It's more of a kit problem than anything. AP kits are always casters for instance. There's simply not a lot of room to work with because the rare exceptions like AP auto attackers are too rare to justify making new items for.
If that was the case then why are all of these "DPS" mages building the exact same items as the burst mages?

: This isn't unique to mages though, most champions have a very cut and paste build
AD champs have a widely larger selection of playstyles to choose from compared to AP due to their itemization. If you pick an AP champ you're almost guaranteed to build these 4 items every single time because there are no other alternatives to pick from. You are forced into being nothing but a nuke-bot because that's the only playstyle that's supported at this point.
