Summoner Spells Back to Top

Hello, and welcome to my guide for Ashe!


Before we begin:


This is a guide, made to show and teach others how to play Ashe like I do.
What Masteries and Runes, why these? 
What Keystone?
What items and which do you get first?
That and much more is what I will try to explain to all of you through this guide.
You might not agree with my play style, which is fine, you don't need to play like me if you do not want to.
For those who do or are curious, welcome!
Feel free to leave a comment or so, and feel free to ask me questions if there is something you do not understand, I will do my best to explain it to you.
Feel free to leave feedback, or tell me your own thoughts!

The guide will be updated with each patch, sometimes even in between, so be sure to check back here every once in a while! 

Welcome, and enjoy my guide!


Summoner Spells:


4.png7.png>>>>>> Standard summoner spells for the ADC. I always run these.

4.png3.png>>>>>> Only take these when your support takes heal and there are no other exhausts on the team... this rarely happens though.

4.png14.png>>>>>> I don't run this myself, but I have seen it happen and could help you snowball...

New Runes Back to Top

Masteries Back to Top

Masteries are quite flexible, I will describe here what I often use as I switch sometimes between them.


18/12/0  Fervor of Battle Keystone is what I go. (Warlord's Bloodlust is also an option.)

Ferocity Tree

Fury: You're an ADC, you attack using attack speed, so no need for the other Mastery.
Fresh Blood or Feast: Fresh Blood is nice for the extra damage, but with Feast you heal a little extra, what you pick here depends on what you prefer, damage or sustain.
Vampirism or Neutral Talent: Bit the same as above, depending on what you prefer. If you go Warlords as your Keystone, Neutral talent is a good pick here.
Bounty Hunter or Double Edged Sword: Both options are nice, I prefer to take Bounty Hunter as I do more damage with each kill I make. Only take Double Edged Sword when you are confident you can hit your skills and avoid those of the enemy.
Battering Blows: for the armor penetration.
Warlords or Fervor of Battle: If you took the more damage like masteries, go for Warlords as your Keystone for the needed sustain, which you can do at a big distance thanks to your range. If you got the little sustain masteries, Fervor of Battle is better for the extra damage.

Cunning Tree

Wanderer: You need movement speed to move around the map quickly.
Secret Stash: Kinda speaks for itself. You're no jungler so you don't get any buffs early (later maybe if you got a nice Jungler but thats not worth it), which makes Runic Affinity useless, and you're basically never alone in lane, so Assassin is not needed either.
Merciless or Meditation: If you want more damage, go for Merciless. Afraid you'll run out of mana all the time, take Meditation.
Bandit or Greenfather's gift: Kinda the same as above. If you wish to do more damage every once in a while, go for Greenfather's gift. I personally like the extra gold better, so I always take bandit.

If you want masteries from the other tree and go 18/0/12, this should be good:


Resolve Tree

Unyielding or Recovery: Unyielding makes you more tanky, able to survive more hits, but if you take recovery, your health regens faster.
Tough skin: You take less damage from minion attacks this way, comes in handy when trading.
Runic Armor or Veterans Scars: With Runic armor, heals and shields from your support are stronger on you, giving you more sustain. It also helps with your life steal later on. Veterans Scars gives you extra health which is nice. 
Insight, Preservance or Fearless: All 3 can be good options. Insight gives you cooldown on your 4.png and 7.png, which makes laning a lot safer. Preservance helps you regenerate when wounded, and Fearless is nice if you manage to stick to an enemy and makes you a little tankier.

Skill Maxing order:

Always put a skill point in enchantedcrystalarrow.png when you can.

volley.png > asheq.png>ashespiritofthehawk.png


Why do I level my skills this way:


volley.png>>>>>>Your main damage ability. This has a wide range and does a lot of damage. The cooldown of this skill decreases with each point you put in it, which is why you max this first.


asheq.png>>>>>>Max this second, as this is your second damage ability. You need to basic attack too stack it up. It has no cooldown, so you can start stacking it again once the previous stacks disappeared (cause you didn't attack or use it) or after you used this skill.

ashespiritofthehawk.png>>>>>>This skill you max last. If you use it wisely, you don't need it that often. It does no damage and the cooldown stays long.

enchantedcrystalarrow.png>>>>>>The stun of this skill lasts longer the further the arrow traveled. Put a point in this whenever you can.

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    Standard start.
    Only start this way if really confident you'll win and snowball, and if your first item is Essence Reaver
    Only start this way if really confident you'll win and snowball.

Core Items

    Try to get these at your first back, as you'll need the damage. If you don't have enough gold for a B.F. Sword, decide what you wanna build first, if you go Essence Reaver first, go for Long Swords or the Cullhammer, if you go for Infinity Edge, get the Pickaxe.
    Pick which you wanna build first. Essence Reaver is nice as it helps with the mana sustain, and, after building an AS item, you have 30% Cooldown. Infinity Edge however, gives more damage output and it boosts your Passive by a lot. I decide what I get depending on how much I am struggling. If I struggle had with mana, I get Essence Reaver. If I have enough mana but can't secure any kills, I go Infinity Edge
    Runaan's Hurricane is the AS item for Ashe. This is what my core looks like I I struggled with mana.
    Runaan's Hurricane is the AS item for Ashe. This is what my core build looks like when I had a rather normal laning phase.
    As a Marksman you need to adapt to the current situation. It can be hard to decide what to build next. Well, if you don't get killed off fast and the enemy stacks armor already, go for a Last Whisper upgrade. Mortal Reminder if they have champs with lots of heal, Dominik's Regards if they stack HP. If you do get one-shot or killed fast, get Bloodthirster first, Mercurial Scimitar in case they are AP heavy.
    As final item, either get the crit item you did not get before, or go for an extra attack speed item
    My final build in normal cases.

Situational Items

    See description below.
    See description below

Why build these items?


Core items:


3508.png or 3031.png>>>>>>Always build one of these first. Depending on how well you are doing, or on what you prefer. the 3508.png has a passive that helps with your mana trouble, as well as it helps you stack cooldown with other crit items. The 3031.png makes the slow on your ashepassive.png hit harder.

3006.png>>>>>>>>>>>> Standard Boots for the ADC class. Increases attack speed. Not much more needed to be said here. If you go double attack speed items, you could go for 3158.png3009.png3117.png3111.png, but I do advise against that.

3085.png>>>>>>This item is great on Ashe, as your asheq.png will hit multiple enemies or minions with this item!

Items depending on what Champions the enemy team has (Always get one Armor Pen and one Life Steal item from the options below):


3072.png>>>>>>If the enemy has a balanced team or just a lot of AD, go for this life steal item. It has more damage than 3139.png, more life steal, and if you build 3139.png against a team with no AP and CC, you waste money for a stat you are not going to use. Plus, if you keep life stealing while you are full health, you gain a small shield, making you able to take a little more damage.


3139.png>>>>>>Ideal item if the enemy team is full of AP users and chain CC. This item gives damage, a bit of life steal and magic resist. Not only that, thanks to the 3140.png in its build, you can dispel CC you get hit with, such as stuns and slows and walk away from the fight. It might save your life.

3036.png>>>>>>There are two Armor Pen choices, but one is better against champs stacking armor and health, the other is good against champs that stack armor and have lots of healing or health regen. This choice if for the Health stackers. When the enemy has more health than you do, this item does all the more damage. Up to 15%, with a maximum health difference of 500.

3033.png>>>>>>There are two Armor Pen choices, but one is better against champs stacking armor and health, the other is good against champs that stack armor and have lots of healing or health regen. This one is meant for the healers. When you attack the enemy and have this item, you inflict grieves wounds on them, reducing their ability to heal and regenerate fast. This item is good if the enemy team has champs like 36.png50.png16.png

Items to finish your build, depending on your preference:


3508.png or 3031.png>>>>>>If  you want another damage item with crit, you can pick the one you didn't build before.

3094.png>>>>>>An item that gives attack speed, crit, and, when fully charged, more range. How neat!

3046.png>>>>>>This attack speed item gives attack speed the most of all, and it gives crit. The passive allows you to walk through minions and it can save you from death.

Other options (Remember you have to sacrifice a different item, unless you had no need to build Armor Pen):


3065.png>>>>>>This works well with your life steal, as the healing gets increased by about 50%, plus you get magic resist, health, and cooldown, all really nice stats to not get burst down at once.

3102.png>>>>>>It blocks a spell or CC, gives magic resist and a little health to make you able to survive longer.

3075.png>>>>>>>>>>>>The item to annoy fast attackers that like to focus you, examples being 11.png157.png23.png56.png102.png and ADC's.

3091.png>>>>>>Instead of a final crit item, be it 3508.png,3031.png,3094.png or 3046.png, you can build this attack speed item against an AP heavy team. 

3026.png>>>>>>You are the ADC, the main source of crit and physical damage, so when you die the team loses some damage. This item might be able to save you or at least get the chance to land another shot or two, plus it gives armor as well as magic resist.

My final build in normal situations:


3031.png3006.png3085.png3036.png3072.png3508.png

***NOTE: If no one on the enemy team builds armor, you can leave the Armor Pen out for 3102.png3075.png3026.png or 3065.png but remember you then trade AD for Resistances or Armor so you do less damage but get burst down less fast as well.***

New Ashe Build (still writing it down!!) Back to Top

A lot changed in patch 7.6 and now, with some buffs, this Ashe build can work as well!!


New Build:


3153.png3006.png3085.png3071.png3036.png3031.png

Other item options:

3158.png instead of 3006.png
3072.png instead of 3031.png

Why these items and this build?


3153.png
More damage, less attack speed, but the heal is buffed. When combined with other items, this is an ideal item for getting early attack speed and dealing quite some damage early in the game, plus, it makes it easier for you to survive thanks to the life steal. Since many people (me as well) start a Longsword and health pots often, this is a nice first buy!

3006.png
Boots are important for Ashe. She has no escapes or whatsoever, so she needs the movement speed. This also gives a nice little boost in her attack speed, something you want with this build to stack the 3071.png that you build later on faster.

3085.png
In my opinion the best attack speed item for Ashe. Thanks to it's passive, allowing you to strike two more targets, this item deals insane damage with the stacks from you Fervor of Battle mastery, the asheq.png ability, AND the 3071.png that you will be building.

About Me Back to Top

Hi! I am CrystalWolf, a League player from the Netherlands.

I made an account back in 2013, because a friend thought I would love the game, but since he forced it on me a little and explained nothing I never really played.
This was until 2015 or so, when a new friend of mine who also plays League calmly and quietly taught me how to play the game, how it works with runes and masteries, everything. Ever since then, I play League on an almost daily basis. I started with ARAM's, and started practicing on Summoner's Rift much later.
Despite that, I became GOLD V in season 5, and ended in GOLD III in season 6, because I had not enough time and focus to play due to private reasons. My friend told me if I had more time, I could have easily reached Platinum. 
Oh well, better luck this season right?

I main the Support Role, but I also like to play ADC or Mid-Lane. Jungle is fun too but I still need to get used to the new changes. Sometimes I play Top, but only when I am playing solo as my friend loves the Top-Lane. My favorite champions are Nami and Ashe, but I play lots of others.

This is the first guide I ever made, so I know it might not be perfect and flawed here and there.
The guide is not completely done yet, so please be patient. 

Why do I play Ashe? Back to Top

Good Supports for Ashe (WIP) Back to Top

Supports with CC and poke are the best for Ashe!


Ashe is strong and can do a lot of damage in a really short time, but, she needs a little set up for this. If she can follow her support's CC with her enchantedcrystalarrow.png you really will do a lot of damage, and your support can protect you with it as well. Other supports, these with poke, work really well too, together you poke you enemies weak and then you can finish them off. Here are a few supports good for Ashe:


12.png>>>>>>This cow has endless CC in hit kit with his headbutt.png+pulverize.png combo, and even more now with his alistare.png. His ferocioushowl.png makes him really hard to take down as well, so he is a good support for his CC and tankiness. Also, he can defend you by headbutt.png enemies away from you, or help you secure a kill by headbutt.png a low health enemy towards you.

53.png>>>>>>A rocketgrab.png and powerfist.png combo works really well when combined with your enchantedcrystalarrow.png giving you a long chain of CC and a lot of time to deal damage, or in other cases, to get away from an enemy.

63.png>>>>>>Brand is a very strong and high damage poke champion, if you can combine this with your own damage, you'll hurt the enemy a lot. Also, depending on how the Brand uses his skills, he can have a stun giving you a nice combo. He has no way of sustaining you or shielding you, be careful of that.

201.png>>>>>>Braum is a good defender, able to block a lot of the damage you would otherwise take. His passive and braumq.png can stun an enemy after a few stacks, which is also neat. With his braumrwrapper.png he has quite some CC and enemies walking over it are slowed, giving you time to aim and hit your enchantedcrystalarrow.png

About sending friend requests on LOL Back to Top

 I do not accept random friend requests on League of Legends. If you sent me a request without me knowing you or having heard of you, it will not be accepted. So please, don't do that. For questions, you can use the comment box for now. I will set up my e-mail account for questions later.

Ashe Things Back to Top

22.png22.png22.png22.png22.png22.png22.png22.png22.png22.png22.png

Things people asked me about personal Ashe things:


Why do you like about Ashe?

She has a high base damage, her attacks slow and she has her own CC in her kit. Plus, her enchantedcrystalarrow.png is global so you can sent it to help anywhere. And, you have your own scouting tool with ashespiritofthehawk.png which gives you vision anywhere on the map without you needing to move there or put yourself in danger.

Is there something you dislike about Ashe?

As with all ADC's, she is squishy. Also, if the slows aren't enough to slow the enemy down, and neither is enchantedcrystalarrow.png or you miss it, you got no escapes or dashes to get to safety.

What is your favorite skill/ability?

Her volley.png because it is quite big, has a nice slow on it and can do quite some damage. And of course her enchantedcrystalarrow.png

What is your favorite skin?

Pff.... hard to pick. I'd say Freljord Ashe.

What is your least favorite skin?

Marauder Ashe. You can't even see it is Ashe in there... I also dislike full armored people.

Favorite Support to lane with?

One with sustain and/or CC.
Healers and CC: 267.png16.png37.png
Tanks with CC and set-up: 89.png412.png111.png

What Mastery Level are you?

Level 5 at the moment. Haven't played her in a while anymore.
