- When paired with a CC support such as or , expect at level 2.

- Take advantage of Corki's short range and harass when possible.
- He has great all in potential with so be careful if he is paired with a CC support.
- His power spike isn't until level 4 so he does not really have any kill potential.
- Be wary of harass, otherwise he should not be able to damage you.
- At level 2 he will get which will primarily be used as an escape.
- At level 4 (sometimes 3) most will get which is only useful at close range but only takes one tick to apply the defense reductions.
- You should keep your distance at this point if against a CC support.
- If he is allowed to use without having to use to set it up you will take a lot of damage.
- This is, in my opinion, Ashe's toughest matchup.

FAQ Back to Top
Q: How does my passive change critical strikes, chance and damage?
- Critical strikes now critically slow, dealing triple the slow of .
- Critical strike chance works the same as before and applies additional damage to using the formula below.
- Critical strike bonus damage only applies additional damage to using the formula below.
Additional Damage = 10% + (Critical Strike Chance x (1 + Critical Strike Bonus Damage))
Below is an example of how the formula is used:
Early Game Back to Top
The early game is critical to Ashe because it is very hard to catch up if you fall behind.
Once you get to lane after leashing you will find the melee minions almost all dead, I recommend using here to get all three while also hitting the ranged minions and/or enemy champions to ensure you get level 2 quickly and get some form of harassment.
If you are against a melee support with make sure you punish them if they try to last hit any minions. I recommend saving to slow them and then basic attack them down as much as possible. Against champions such as or this will hurt their level 2 engage and/or for force them to use a majority of their .
Your level 2 is weaker than most because we do not have the DPS increase that most other ADCs have. Take and use it across the enemy jungle aiming for the buff that is furthest away. Although this does not really help your own lane at all, it gives useful intel for your jungler and your mid/top lanes. In the case where the enemy gets level 2 before you do, you need to play passively.
You have no escapes apart from so make sure you have appropriate vision depending on where the lane is, most of the time this is dependant on your support. You can also use if you feel the enemy jungler is close by and you have no vision left.
At level 6, you generally will not win fights unless you have a support that has good burst damage. If you do decide to engage, make sure you have full stacks of ready and you can land reliably. If you can get your jungler to gank it should result in a kill with or a lot of burnt summoner spells. Every time you use you should aim for a takedown or burn a . Sometimes, will be taken against you and it is not worth trading for it.
Mid Game/Late Game Back to Top
Continue to use to scout out the enemy jungler. You can start to aim it at Dragon/Rift Herald if you have no vision. You will also need to keep an eye out for the enemy mid laner and potentially a from the top laner if constantly pushed.
The most important thing to do if you have fallen behind is to make sure you do not keep hemorrhaging kills. While this may sound obvious, you playstyle needs to adapt to the situation so you do not end up going to lane and instantly dying. In this situation, make sure you freeze the wave (only last hit) and if your enemy has frozen the wave and going to lane means death then go into the jungle with your support.
If you are ahead and have managed to take the turret, rotate to top lane and pressure the turret there. Generally, your top laner will rotate bottom at this stage. You should also look to pressure Dragon when ahead using to scout any potential steals.
When using on other lanes I suggest to fairly close by and not attempt to cast from base or from other lanes because it is too high risk for potentially no reward. Always make sure the enemy has no vision from where you cast, if you are unsure, go further back in lane or go to an area that has recently been swept. In some cases, you will need to save it for yourself as a defensive mechanism. You will also need to continously look out for . Like , it is not worth trading your ultimate for it.
If you do not have a support/team that can protect you, your positioning is vital to staying alive and is key to that. I also recommend building lifesteal so you can sustain yourself in fights.
Once again, vision is key, especially against assassins. If you fear that an enemy will come from behind, make sure you have ready to scout them out. If you are being targetted, which in most cases you should be, you have to rely on your team to react to any threats as and your slows will not always be enough.

After completing a core item, you will look to build one of these items. Stat wise, they are almost identical, so to figure out which one we need, we need to look at their passives.
