Salves and tangoes are both items that give you health over a period of time, but which one is better?
A salve cost 100 gold and gives a bunch of health in a short amount of time, but if attacked, it is dispelled, a stack of 3 tangoes cost 90 gold and heals about 100 life over a longer period, but doesnt dispell when being attaked. The two are both good but depending on how you play one could be better than the other. In simplest form, if you plan on getting early game kills, go for a salve so you can quickly heal and attack again if you dont kill after the first attack. And if you plan on just staying in the lane, get tangoes to give you just enough health to stay in the lane without being killed in one spell.
