Summoner Spells Back to Top

4.png Flash is a necessary spell for all the ADC's. It helps for escaping,chasing,etc.

21.png One of my favourites. Able to absorb a lot of damage in a short time,this beauty will come in handy many times.
Be careful though,because it lasts only 2 seconds.Use it wisely!

1.png Take Cleanse if the enemy team has heavy CC(Crowd Control).

14.png Taking ignite means that you will go aggressive in lane. Risky option. Do not really recommend it.

7.png It is buffed,and it is another excellent choice right now.Pick it instead of barrier if you want,or tell your support to take it.

Masteries Back to Top

A great Mastery Tree for Draaaaaaven20px-DravenSquare.png,gaining the appropriate Defense and Offense.

Double-Edged Sword bvr.png,god I came..)

A proper build that I have tested and worked good by far:

Ferocity Tree: 18
This tree is purely for offense. The Key Mastery (the last one at the button) is put at Warlord's Bloodlust, mostly because of the bonus lifesteal you get plus from your masteries/runes(dravenspinning.png Spinning Axes makes this even better)

Fervor of Battle: This is for poking and harassing in lane and it is another viable option, a really good one. The Key Mastery is really depended by YOUR gameplay in my personal opinion. Just keep in mind that you have to be aggressive in lane for this one to keep the effectiveness of it at it's maximum potential since the Fervor stacks.

Cunning Tree: 0
Now this tree is a bit tricky. Putting points on Wanderer makes you faster for reaching your lane or objectives, but there are better choices around. Savagery is mostly for last hitting, but I do not recommend it since you already have a lot of damage with your dravenspinning.png Spinning Axe(Q).

Resolve Tree AKA Sustain Tree: 12
Recovery over Unyielding: Recovery grants the appropriate sustain in lane. Draaaaaaven's 119.png lane is mostly aggressive and bloody, so keeping yourself together is one of the main priorities you should consider.(See general playstyle for further details)

Runic Armor is by far one the best masteries I have seen from all the seasons and I highly suggest it. The reasons for this is that you already have enough lifesteal and you FURTHER improve it thanks to this mastery(including the bonus from your axes too). Needlessly to say that every support with a heal and shield near you will do their job even better now for you~

Spinning_Axe.jpg
Spinning Axe is your main ability and your main source of damage. Maximizing and mastering this ability is one of the most important things to do as a Draaaaven20px-DravenSquare.png  player. Sometimes, it can be difficult to master ( in a teamfight it is even harder) but if you manage to learn this by heart,you will be able to create havoc and fear to your enemies.
This makes Draaaaaven20px-DravenSquare.png  a unique ADC!(Also a God during trading with the enemy ADC)
  • Bonus Physical Damage: 45 / 55 / 65 / 75 / 85% AD

(Note that it takes about 2 seconds for your Q to land)



Blood_Rush.jpg
Blood Rush is the second most important ability for Draaaaaaven20px-DravenSquare.png. Max it second cause it gives Attack and Movement speed steroids. Another great thing about this ability is that allows Draaaaaaaven20px-DravenSquare.png to avoid dangerous and delayed abilities. Also, great for catching Axes quickly!
  • Movement Speed: 40/45/50/55/60%
  • Attack Speed:20/25/30/35/40%



Stand_Aside.jpg
Stand Aside has many uses:
1)Able to make a quick escape
2)Cancelling channel abilities
3)Showing Yolo in teamfights
Take it at level 3 if you want to.
Yet, I max it last.


Whirling_Death.jpg
Whirling Death.
One of the best ultimates.
Why?
1) Global range
2)Great damage and it hits twice
3)Catastrophic in teamfights
4)Able to farm from distance
Max it whenever you can.


LeagueofDraven.jpg
League of Draaaaven20px-DravenSquare.png !
This is a great passive because:
1)It makes you snowball hard!
2)It's the League of Draaaven20px-DravenSquare.png!
(More details below)



Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    Usual start for hp and dmg. I recommend Lifesteal runes. 1st option with HP pot:Passive or bloody lane,depends the situation. 2nd option with Mana Pot: Aggresive lane and harrasing.A healer support is recommented for the 2nd option.
    Rushing Vampiric and some sustain in lane.
    If you go back and you are behind in lane.
    Or this after your 1st back.
    If you already have Vampiric Scepter and you went back with around 1000 gold.You can also grab it early.
    ALWAYS take this when you can.
    Since the increased Attack Speed buff that this item received, it's in a better place for you to buy it now and consider it early for your build.
    Take this to go faster in lane.
    Take this at the start of the game.It is already free and it will help you in lane by giving you vision.
    Do not afraid to take this if you see that the enemy has high CC.You can sell it late game to take Zephyr,but be careful not to have them both in your inventory since their passives do not stack.

Core Items

    Full build
    If the enemy is CC heavy.
    Another good build-path with high penetration and durability.
    Selling boots. Late game build.
    Team with CC heavy No 2.
    Team with heavy CC No 3. Really risky build because you are losing a lot of Movement Speed and a bit of Attack Speed for raw power. I suggest it after the 3rd dragon for the bonus Movement Speed buff.
    Full build, note that you can exchange GA with Mercurial Scimitar.

Situational Items

    Another good option, but it can be countered by BOTRK.
    If you want to be more tanky and it counters BOTRK.
    Besides the extra Health and Magic Resistance,a shield is always acceptable if they focus you that much.Mid to late game item.
    Some extra notes for this item : Is there an enemy Zed/Morde/Vlad that Ultis you all the time? Besides the CC removal,it helps you to these kind of situations.
    Another good item.Check below for more info.
    This is a very gimmicky option. First of all,take Sheen as your first item. Each of your W(Blood Rush) will proc Sheen,then active your Q(Spinning Axe) and your Q will do the extra damage. Repeatedly do that to proc. Please note that Draaaaaaaven does not benefit at all from Ability Power,and your base damage is relative low early level.
    Having Mana issues? You can rush it early if you want,but BT is a better choice in my opinion. It also offers nice Cooldown Reduction, but Draaaaaven doesn't need it that much.
    Because Draaaven.
    Believe it or not,this actually can work! Check it out when you are at your Yolo mode and don't forget to take a Draaaavenize Golden position~!
    Many people recommend this item and it is indeed pretty good. Now that it is also buffed, I suggest it even more.
    Take only when you have enough gold and you are not behind.
    Take this if you see the enemy having heavy healings (Soraka, Mundo, Swain etc)
    Sometimes, when you have 2 axes spinning, you need to hit something so you will get that refresh back for the Axes' timer, otherwise you are going to lose them. This item helps you a lot on that, since it gives you the opportunity to hit from afar and with safety, also making some extra damage.
    Only if you want to show off with some Golden Glorius poses.
    Pretty much an awesome item, giving you everything you want. You can rush it early as a first item.

I usually start with a 1055_32.png,since it provides nice stats for the early game. Also works well with Lifesteal runes. Don't forget your 2003_32.png.
With your 1st recall( assuming that you are well-farmed,took dragon or some kills), rush 1038_32.png and some potions or even 1001_32.png if you are able to buy.(Around 2000 gold~)

If you can't afford, buy a  1053_32.png( and 1001_32.png, if you can) and some potions and wards if your support doesn't have much or can't afford. Another option is 2x 1055_32.png.

Moreover,If you aleady have a 1053_32.png and 1001_32.png and you forced to go back to base with around 850-1000 gold,grab a 1037_32.png and some potions 2003_32.png.

A typical early build-path for me is 2x 1055_32.png and Lifesteal Runes,then 3031_32.png or 3072.png. ALWAYS take 1038_32.png  first if you can,otherwise take 1037_32.png. After completing 3031_32.png,go for 3046.png OR 3087.png OR 3094.png and then 3072_32.png or 3508_32.png.


3036.png VS 3033.png
Finally we have more options for penetration now. 3033.png Should be taken when you have multiple enemies with heals(Vladimir, Mundo or generally healing supports like Soraka or Nami).3036.png should be taken against multiple enemies with high health pools and tanks.

Finally,get 3026_32.png if you think you are focused too much. Otherwise take 3139_32.png if you face hard Crowd Control.





Item comparison:

1053_32.pngVS1037_32.png
Sometimes you will have 1000 gold and say to yourself "What of these 2 should I buy 1st?
First of all,consider of what are you going to build. Taking 1037_32.png 1st means that you go all-in,want as much damage as possible,and rushing 3031_32.png for Critical and High Damage.
In the other hand,taking 1053_32.png means that you want an early 3072_32.png,therefore having high sustain in lane thanks to your Axes and very good damage.

Pros and Cons of snowballing in lane(aggresive gameplay):
PROS:(If succeeded)
-Shuts down completely the enemy bot,both adc and support.
-Gets extremely high advantage during all stages of the game.Early engages are with your site.
-More gold,means more items,ensuring that you are getting closer to victory.

yet:
CONS:(If not succeeded)
-Will make you stay WAY behind in lane,or even shutting you down at all.(and your support)
-Being behind,means that you are going to need more minions(gold),while the enemy is having the advantage and forcing you for teamfights or objectives,making the situation even worse.

Generally,considerably risky option,with high-end rewards.




3046_32.pngVS3087_32.png
Let's make a comparison:(Taking account all of their passives)

3046.png                                                                        3087_32.png            
 +45% Attack Speed                                                +35% Attack Speed
 +30% Critical Strike Chance                      and        +30% Critical Strike Chance
 +5% Movement Speed(12% with passive)               +5 % Movement Speed

                         

                                                   so

Pros:                                                                             Pros:


+10% Attack Speed                                                                  

-12% Reduced damage to you(with passive)                 The Movement Speed remains even out of battle

+7% Movement Speed with passive

                    

Cons:                                                       Cons:                    

                                                                -10% Attack Speed

Passives trigger close to enemies            +50 gold more expensive


Yet,let's estimate and explain their Unique Passives:

3046.png

Unique Passive: While within 500 units of a visible enemy champion, you gain 7% (bonus movement speed) and can move through units.
Do not underestimate this passive. How many times did something block your way and you got delayed or killed? Moreover,in a teamfight,you need as much free space as possible to execute your moves and abilities,not to forget that you are Draaaaaaven20px-DravenSquare.png,who needs more time and space for his Spinning axes dravenspinning.png(Q),which gives us another reason why this passive is useful for him. Also the Movement Speed is pretty sweet here.
A point that we have to mention here is those 500 Units. Your range is 550, so you might be thinking why you should buy it. Most of the time, enemies will try to go on you and focus you down, that's the part where this passive is gonna be useful and worthwhile.



3087_32.png

Unique Passive: Your next basic attack (on-hit) sparks lightning to up to 4 nearby units, dealing 50 - 120 (based on level) bonus magic damage, increased to 110 - 264 (based on level) against minions.
You will start to notice the impact of this passive during Teamfights. Of course,Draaaaaven20px-DravenSquare.png is the only carry with the highest Critical Damage possible,by activating his Spinning Axe dravenspinning.pngQ) and then by Critically Strike. We have to note that the Critical Damage itself is not increased or mutliplied,just added as a bonus damage to your Spinning Axe dravenspinning.png(Q). Since the Lighting Damage can critically strike,up to 4 targets,you will be able to harrass effectively with more safety,depending your position. This will also HIGHLY effect your farming by also pushing lanes faster, so it gives this item another logical decision for choice.

Items that make your life harder

3075_32.png This item will literally melt you without even noticing. Since your "buffed" next hit will do bonus damage,thanks to your Spinning Axes dravenspinning.png(Q), equal to 45/55/65/75/85% bonus AD, you will ALSO RECEIVE 45/55/65/75/85% back. If you see that the enemies are starting to build this, I HIGHLY suggest to buy Magic Resist,because the received damage is counted as Magic Damage,so you can at least reduce some of it's damage. Lifesteal works too.

3143.pngAlso hard-counter item. High armor,combined with high Hit Points (HP) and a passive that reduces you attack speed, it will be a pain in the neck.

3047_32.png It reduces some of your damage,and unfortunately,that damage comes from your basic attacks mostly.Also,your Spinning Axes dravenspinning.png (Q),are also considered as basic attacks,so the bonus damage will also be reduced.

3110_32.png Mostly due to it's high armor and Attack Speed debuff,it can cause you some trouble and put you in a disadvantage.

VS

Aatrox

Medium

*General Matchup*
Avoid getting close to him is what really matters in this matchup. As soon as you keep your distance, he won't be a problem.
An important note is to check his build, which is consisted of 2 simple paths:
-Full ad, which hurts A LOT with extremely high lifesteal. Avoid melee range at all cost.
-Tanky DPS, able to absorb a lot of damage and also give some pain back. Still,keep your distance.

Bonus:
AATROX.jpg

VS

Ahri

Medium

*General Matchup*
This champion's difficulty is based from the player's gameplay.It can be easy,medium or even hard.But let's take some notes:
-Avoid her heart(E) at all costs.It gonna make you receive her full combo,not to mention it will be multiplied by 20%,making you melt in literally no time.
-Her Q(Orb of Deception) will deal true damage on the way back.Be careful with that.
-When you see her activating her E(Fox-Fire),go back and wait for the ability to be finished.Stay behind and minions,but beware,it is prioritizing champions.


Bonus:
gws.jpg

VS

Akali

Medium

*General Matchup*
Particulary another all-in champion.She can be a pain in the neck if she is fed.Consider this as a skill-matchup champion.
Get away from her Smoke ability and try to interrupt 1 of her ulti with your Stand Aside20px-Stand_Aside.png(E).Stand close to your teammates and avoid 1v1 her without vision.

Bonus:
dadadadadadadada.jpg

VS

Alistar

Medium

I put this match as Medium, but it can be considered Hard.
This annoying cow has 2 CC that cannot be removed and it makes your life harder,since he will disrupt you a lot during all stages of the game.It can be even more dangerous if he can land his Q+W combo,so be careful with this one.

Note:Don't get close to the enemy turret because he ll be able to stun you and then headbutt you to the turret.

Bonus:
fwr.png

VS

Annie

Medium

A recent new "Support" appeared within the new season.
The role of an Annie support is to:
-Poke the enemy with AutoAttacks(AA), since she has a large range.
-Stun at the appropriate time and burst.
First of all,watch her build. Is she full AP? That means she is not tanky,but she will harass you a lot.Having a support that sustains(for trades) you or either go all-in(CC) is a good idea.
If she doesn't have much AP and she goes tanky,obviously do not expect much damage from her.
During all the stages of the games,watch her stun.In lane,look around her if she has a white-smoke particle,which is visible if her counters show 4.Engage when it is at two or lower.

Bonus:
ANNIE.jpg

VS

Ashe

Easy

Ashe should be easy in lane, because of her Squishy nature and early babysit.
Throw some axes in her face and harass a lot.
Be careful of her passive cause it hurts a lot at early levels.Because of that,I suggest to let her use it on minions,then go and trade with her.

Bonus:
306a7f15660275d2db7c88263ba37429.png

VS

Azir

Medium

*General Matchup*
This champion is extremely depended by his Summoner's skills. Not many Azirs around,but let's mention some tips:
-The first thing you will do is to stay away from his Sand Soilders.
-He will try to reposition all of them with his Q,so always be on move.
-If he made a clear escape with his Ultimate,don't chase him,instead,use your Ultimate to take the kill.

Bonus:

Azir 2.jpg

Azir.jpg

VS

Bard

Easy

Kinda being a typical easy enemy, the only thing you have to watch is his Ultimate and stun(Q) because it can put you in a heavy misposition.
Generally a lane with not so many difficulties.

Bonus:
Bard.jpg

VS

Blitzcrank

Medium

It can be an annoying , but you can avoid his grab by standing behind minions or using your Blood Rush at the right moment.
A clever Blitzcrank however will see where your axes are going to land and then he will pull you,following by his combo.Also,be careful not to get zoned.

Basically,if you see that he is camping in bush too much do the following:
-Ask your support to ward the bush.
-Always stay as far as you can and position yourself behind minions.


Bonus:
images?q=tbn:ANd9GcTfyYsKvL_EAAB2C03Y6Ju

VS

Braum

Medium

This matchup can be considered Hard if the enemy Braum is skilled.
Another mustache in the league,yet less stylish than ours. Most of Braum players will spam their Q to harass you in lane early game. Sooner or later,he will try to add his passive on you(Concussive Blow) to activate the stun and the bonus damage.
Stay behind your minions early game to avoid his Winter's bite(Q) harass and be careful when you ulti,because he can completely negate it's damage thanks to his Unbreakable sheild(E). Play safely or decide if it should be a bloody lane.

Bonus as always:
Braum.png

VS

Caitlyn

Medium

Her long range is extremely annoying early levels, and her traps will give her control in lane.Avoid her Q at all cost and then try to trade with her.If you can't, play passive or wait for the right moment,like a gank or a mistake from her.

She usually tries to take advantage of her range to harass you,especially when her passive is up.Avoid her extra damage from her passive and dodge her Q.
To effectively trade with her,rush with a Spinning Axe20px-Spinning_Axe.png (Q) and then immediately turn back to avoid further damage by her.
DO NOT ATTEMPT to catch your axes when they fall on her traps!

Bonus:
Caitlyn.png


VS

Cassiopeia

Medium

*General Matchup*
It can be considered an easy matchup.Always be on move when you engage her.If she manage to land her stun properly,she just gonna combo you to death.21.pngBarrier will help you with her burst.

Bonus:
Cassopeia 2.jpg

VS

Corki

Easy

Due to several nerfs, 42_64.png is not that viable anymore.Yet, his AA+Q+AA can hurt a lot.
Still,your damage and trades are far more superior than him.Avoid his combo and this will be an easy lane for you.

Bonus:
CORKI.jpg

VS

Darius

Medium

*General Matchup*
It can be considered Easy,Medium and Hard,depending on how much brain this Darius has.
Your first problem is his pull,which will put you to a misposition and finally letting his team kill you.Second,it is his high burst. Use 21.png at the right time,which is during his Ultimate.
Timing is the most important think in this matchup.Plan your steps right.

Bonus:(Brother,plz..)
DARIUS.jpg

VS

Diana

Medium

*General matchup*
This can be considered hard,depending again on the player's skill.Juke her Q to avoid letting her cast 2 ultis on you,since it refreshes the timer.Late game is dangerous for you,cause of her high burst and probably tankyness,since many Diana players have the tendency to stack some Hp.

Bonus:
ml,k ml m lmkl.jpg

VS

Draven

Hard

HOW MUCH MUSTACHE POWER CAN A LANE HANDLE??!?!
May the best Draaaaaaaaven win! Try to use your E to make him lose his axes.
(P.S You can catch his axes,huehuehue)

Bonus:
images?q=tbn:ANd9GcSMUeSi-DXWSDknDSAK5K7

Double bonus because Draaaaaaaaaaven:
2f7e59567f52e263ca7ae17b88a98460.png

VS

Ekko

Medium

*General Matchup*
It can be considered hard,depending on the skills of the player.
Some things you need to do here is to watch his hologram blue thingy behind his back because of his W, mostly because you will be probably dead if the stun catches you. Another thing is because of his Ultimate(kinda predict where he will teleport back).
DO NOT underestimate his Ultimate! He heals a LOT back and also deals A LOT.
Careful steps and concentration is needed against him.

Bonus:
Ekko.jpg

VS

Elise

Medium

*General matchup*
Another matchup that can be considered hard.Her damage is high and her poke is very annoying during at all stages of the game.Generally,if you can avoid her stun,you are in a good spot.Usually,lot's of Elise are building tanky and some damage(Rylais for ex).Watch out for ganks.

Bonus:
ELISE.jpg

VS

Evelynn

Medium

*General natchup*
You gonna probably see her Jungle and sometimes Mid.Her ganks are superior,and that's the most annoying thing on her,in my opinion.Late game,spread from your team to avoid her ulti but do not get too far.She can nuke you,but you can also nuke her.Play carefully if she is fed.Also,quite Squishy early game.

Bonus:
EVE.jpg

VS

Ezreal

Easy

Assuming that you can avoid his Q and do good trades with your Spinning Axes20px-Spinning_Axe.png(Q), it can be an easy lane.Also he is more fragile than you.

Stay behind your minions and trade with him whenever you get the chance.He will melt in no time.Besides,what does a blonde,shaved boy doing here?

Bonus:
EZREAL.jpg


VS

Fiddlesticks

Medium

Those 1-2 seconds of Fear and Silence are really annoying.Damn you FiddleDicks.You can take 1.png on this one.Keep in mind however that he is fairly Squishy.

Also,ward nearby bushes to prevent surprising Ultimates.
Can be an easy lane if played well.

Bonus:
Fiddledicks.png

VS

Fiora

Easy

*General Matchup*
She is able to deal high damage but she can be killed fairly easily.Nothing too serious here.Can be put on Medium if she is fed enough.

Bonus:
FIORA.jpg

VS

Gangplank

Easy

*General Matchup*
Quite easy,but it can be put to medium.First of all,watch his build path.He may be full ad,named as Critplank or off-tank.The first hurts very much late game,but he will have no defenses.The opposite exists for the 2nd part.Damn oranges..

Bonus:
GANKPLANK.jpg

VS

Gnar

Medium

*General matchup*
This little prehistoric yordle can be quite annoying. At his small form,you can outdamage him pretty easily and you can also juke the boomerang quite easily again. Yet,stay AWAY when he turns big at his Rage form. He can be kited easily,that's true,but it is unlikely to win with him in close combat,he has damage and extreme CC.
Always keep an eye at his Rage bar,so plan your smooth moves right~

Bonus:
GNAR.jpg

VS

Graves

Medium

Even though that his range is smaller than most of the adc's, his burst can be extremely high.Also,his passive gives him resistances.I highly recommend 21.png.Try not to eat his nuke combo.

Bonus:

VS

Heimerdinger

Medium

*General Matchup*
Well,I do not think it can be hard,maybe if he is fed. Do not sacrifice health for killing his turrets,do it only if he is not near and you have some proper Lifesteal. Juke his missles,which is not that hard,and his stun obviously. When he Ultimates,do the appropriate things depending on his Ultimate choice:
-Q: Stay away from that Nuke-Duper-Killing-Broken-Red giant turret. Destroy it if it doesn't focus you and Heimer is not near,otherwise it is better to avoid it.
-W: Nuke. Just nuke. Juke it. Even 4.png if it is neccessary.
-E: He will mostly use it during a teamfight for the multi-stun. This will not be a problem if you are behind your team.

Bonus:
heimer draaaaaaven.jpg

Janna

Medium

This match up can be Hard.
She has a good shield which also provides Attack Damage to her carry,a CC that cannot be removed (2 with her ultimate) and a massive heal.Avoid her tornado at all cost.

Bonus:

VS

Jarvan IV

Hard

*General Matchup*
This can also be put in medium and rarely easy if that Jarvan doesn't know what to do.
The reason of adding this as hard is because he can disturb you at any stage of the game.
You can block his Q+E combo,but you still have to time it really quick.Stay behind your team and ask for assistance if he dives you a lot.

Bonus:
JARVAN.jpg

VS

Jayce

Medium

*General Matchup*
With some recent nerfs,he is kinda weaker now,but he can still deal some good damage.Avoid getting hit by his Q-E combo,especially late game.He is kinda Squishy among the other top laners,so you will not have a problem killing him.

Bonus:
JAYCE.jpg

VS

Jinx

Medium

League of Jinx? The war of leagues has finally begun!
During laning phase,watch her what weapon is she using.If she is using Minigun,trade with her,but avoid trading while she is having the Rocket Launcher on.
The damage from her Rockets and your Axes are almost equal.
Ask your support to poke as much as possible in this match-up.Put impressive pressure to her.The laning phase in this one is bloody as hell.
Some aside notes.Her W deals high damage,but it is easily avoidable and it has a delay.
Her ultimate deals more damage the more wounded you are.
Remember,position is TOP priority in this lane.
Show her the REAL League!

Bonus!!

Kalista

Medium

Master of Kite,that's for sure. Low sustain,but a good and dangerous CC if used correctly.
Trade with her,try to juke her Q(also careful because it goes through units if kills them) and remember that she doesn't have any escape abilities,only the small dashes from her passive. Can be an easy lane too.

Bonus:
Kalista.jpg

VS

Karma

Hard

 You will probably see her middle lane,mid lane or even bottom lane as a support.
She has some excellent shields and burst damage(even damage per second thanks to her karmaspiritbond.png, and most of it is not expected at once. Even with low ap, she has one of the best pokes in game.

Bonus:
KARMA.jpg

VS

Karthus

Easy

*General Matchup*
Kinda Squishy and easy to encounter,he melts in no time. Yet,his damage can be strong depending on his position(from his E or Ulti) and his aim(Q).Avoid getting low on health when he hits 6,otherwise CHOCOLATE RAIN!

Bonus:
KARTHUS.jpg

VS

Katarina

Medium

*General Matchup*
Dat redhair..
Ehem yea,to the main point.You can interrupt her Ultimate thanks to your Stand Aside20px-Stand_Aside.png(E),so she will be able to deal way too less damage to you or at your team.Nevertheless,a Q->E->W combo of her will still be able to cut half of your life with a good amount of AP.Her playstyle depends as always from the player and his experience. Note that she can vanish you in less than 2 seconds, but hey, focus at the important stuff.

Bonus:
KATARINA.jpg

VS

Kayle

Medium

Just like 43_64.png, you will probably see 10_64.png on middle lane.
She has a good slow and heal and an ultimate that makes the enemy ADC immune to all damage.If she goes full AP,she can deal a good amount of damage.

Bonus:

Kha'Zix

Medium

*General Matchup*
An extremely high skill cap champion.Can be also set to Hard.The first thing you want to notice on him is his Evolves:

Q Evolve:If he manages to find you isolated(alone or away from friendly units), you are pretty much dead.Seriously,the damage is outrageous on this one.Stay close to your allies.
W Evolve:He is gonna poke you and your team a lot.Stay behind minions if you can.
E Evolve: The jumper is jumping with jumps all over the jumping place.
R Evolve:He wants to juke A LOT and deal high amounts of damage with his passive.Expect ambushes and ask for protection.

Bonus:

Kog'Maw

Easy
96_64.png needs babysitting early game,making him very vulnerable in lane.
Harass him early and deny last hits,since he shines late game.
If he feels that you are giving him too much pressure,he ll active his W to farm or harass from farther range.

Bonus:
KOG.jpg

VS

LeBlanc

Medium

*General Matchup*
This champion is highly depended on skills.It can be very easy or very hard for you.Late game she can just nuke you without even noticing.She is Squishy,an advantage that you have to look into more.I recommend 3139_32.png for removing her chain CC or Silence or 3026_32.png to survive her combo.

Bonus:

VS

Lee Sin

Hard

*General Matchup*
The word "Skill" describes perfectly this champion.If he is able to make the plays,you gonna have an extremely hard time at all stages of the games.His damage is high and his Ultimate will make you a living Airplane.When you see him going behind you by Flashing or Jump-Warding,IMMEDIATELY 4.png behind him to let him kick you to safety instead  in the enemy team.If you do not have Flash,praise the Lord.
Last note: Watch his ganks,he is also excellent on that.

Bonus:
LEE.jpg

VS

Leona

Hard

This CC monster will be standing in front of you saying:
"I am gonna CC you and my carry is gonna kill you!"
Try to avoid her deadly combo.If she zones you that much,ask for gank.
With your ability Stand Aside 20px-Stand_Aside.png(E), you can deny her E for reaching you.Time it very careful!I recommend 1.png,cause it will deny most of her stuns.

Bonus:

VS

Lissandra

Medium

*General Matchup*
Her CC can cause you a lot of trouble and her Ultimate has many uses,like stunning and making her invulnerable.Always be on move and try to not get too close to her,cause she was her W(Immobalize),a short range slow with good damage(Q) and her Ultimate like I mentioned above.Moreover,her E(The teleport-hand) can make some nice plays and escapes,needlessly to say about good setup-up traps or ganks.
An interesting note,is that,when she uses her E,she has to press it again to teleport at the current's hand location before the hand disappears.In the same time,if you hit her with your Stand Aside20px-Stand_Aside.png(E),it will knock her back and make her unable to cast her E again,therefore canceling the teleportation.It requires good timing skills to be made effectively.

Bonus:
LISSANDRA.jpg

VS

Lucian

Medium

*Updated*
Ahhh yes.Another carry ready to see the Draaaaaven's 20px-DravenSquare.png glory.
His burst can be high, but he lacks sustain.
You can juke his Q pretty easily,like all his abilities.Also, he is kinda squishy, so your trades will hurt him quite a lot. Try to avoid getting hit by his Q AND his Double Hit Passive. Probably the only adc that can trade you well early phase.
Finally, you are able to cancel his Ultimate.

Bonus:MFKING CHIKKIN.png

VS

Lulu

Hard

This cute,happy,little yordle will gonna make your life a living hell.
She will  poke you to death,thanks to her passive and Q( plus the slow,which gives the enemy ADC more time to harass you),she will turn you into a squirrel or something like that,she gonna shield her ADC and she will knockup and slow you with her ultimate ,(the slow comes from the aura) plus giving her ADC bonus health.

Do not give her the opportunity to take control in lane and avoid being zoned.

Master Yi

Medium

*General Matchup*
You gonna see him jungle or midlane probably.Sometimes top.His ganks are kinda easy to avoid since he completely lacks CC,but his damage is relative high.Late game he can just insta-melt anything,with the combination of his True Damage and Attack Speed,not to mention that he is the backdoor Master.Avoid 1v1 him late game unless you are sure that you have some advantage(fed,well farmed etc).

Bonus:

Miss Fortune

Medium

You guys have about the same match-up.
She trades well with her Q and the AS steroid,same as you.
Assuming that both of you have the same skills,this is pretty much a support match up.
Also,you are able to cancel her Ultimate.

Bonus:

Morgana

Medium

*General and certain Matchup*
Well,expect heavy damage from her if she goes mid,otherwise as a support she will try to land her roots and chain her Ultimate.Yet,she is generally Squishy,so you can take her out pretty quickly.The shield can negate your's Stand Aside20px-Stand_Aside.png(E) knock-back effect,so time it carefully.Position is top priority for this matchup,either general or certain.

Bonus:

She has an annoying bubble and a good heal.She can also buff the AA of her ADC.

*General matchup and support*
The only think you have to worry about is her spears.Late game they do shitloads of damage and she will stay back poking everything.Quite annoying.Do not forget that she is very Squishy and can be killed easily.Also,do not attempt to chase her in most situations,since she has her jump and the Movement Speed passive.Go ahead if you are sure enough.Watch out for her traps.

Bonus:

Orianna

*General Matchup*
This champion is all about skills.It can be extremely easy or it can be extremely hard.
Her Ultimate is amazing,able to turn the tides of the battle and her damage is pretty insane,not to mention her poke.The most important thing for you here is to MOVE.
MOVE all the time trying to juke her.Never stay in the same location,cause you will just make her kill you much easier.If you can 4.png out of her Ultimate,do it,gonna save your ass.

Bonus:

Quinn

Medium

Haven't seen many Quinns at bot lane, but I am gonna add some info.She is really likely to go top lane.
Avoiding the blind can be critical,otherise your Q will have no effect.
I am putting this on normal, cause I don't have the appropriate experience against enemy Quinn.

Rek'Sai

Medium

*General Matchup*
DO NOT let this thing come close to you. Tankiness combined with good Damage,she will give you trumble during the game. Ask for protection during Teamfights because she is most likely to Tunnel and knockup to you. Overall,always keep a safe distance.

VS

Riven

Medium

*General Matchup*
The recent nerfs balanced her somehow,but she can still deal huge damage if she is played well.Once more,depending on player's skill.If she dives you a lot in teamfights,ask for protection,you gonna need it.Also,1v1 her only if you are sure that you have an advantage over her(fed).Still,risky option.

Bonus:(Who loves bunnies? I do..)

Ok an extra serious bonus now:
DRIVEN.jpg

Ryze

Medium

A very good champion depending on skills.His mid-late game is difficult for you,because his build kinda makes your life harder.Position yourself as much as you can during a teamfight and avoid 1v1 him late game if he is fed.

Bonus:

VS

Shaco

Medium

*General matchup*
He can easily be killed,but his early ganks are just deadly. His counter-jungle is the best in league(Another reason why Shaco junglers take Ignite as summoner spell).
Not much to say here. Keep an eye around you for ambushes during teamfights, expect focus from him and ask for support if he is a trouble to you.

Bonus:
SHACO.png

VS

Shyvana

Medium

*General Matchup*
An excellent clearing-jungler,able to deal good amounts of damage and absorb at the same time.She will usually stick to you in teamfights or be a meat-shield for her team,depending on player's experience,build and score.Pre-6 level ganks will not be a big problem for you since she lacks CC,so take advantage of that but do not overpush your lane.Some Shyvana players will also run 3.png to counter this.You can cancel her Ultimate's travel distance with your Stand Aside20px-Stand_Aside.png(E),but she will still change to Dragon form.
Generally an Easy to Hard Matchup.

*General matchup*
He is a monster right now,even better than before.
Low sustain but high damage even with tanky items and strong CC.
Avoiding his Q and Ulti is extremely important to survive. Just try to not mess it up too much with your axes while moving away from his Q or Ulti.

Her damage is pretty weak compares to yours.Just avoid her Q since is one of her main damage abilities.Also, your Spinning Axes20px-Spinning_Axe.png (Q), cannot be blocked by her shield, since they are considered as basic hits.Can also be put in Medium.

Taric

Medium

He will heal the enemy ADC , buff his/her armor and AD(ulti) and stun you.Hold your Spinning Axe20px-Spinning_Axe.png(Q) if you see that he is going to stun you.Morever, if he is going to stun you,throw your Q at a nearby minion or him and then run back.This specific stun has a travel time,meaning that you will be able to grab your axe while running back at it's drop location while stunned.It needs some practice at the start.
(Pick Ezreal to counter him, if you know what I mean)

VS

Teemo

Medium

*General Matchup*
How much I hate this little rat.Even Twitch is less dirtier than him.Anyway,Teemo is mostly a "For a defence" champion.In teamfights,he cannot do much and the only thing you have to worry about is:
His mines,I mean Mushrooms:If you want to see your life drop to 50% by a single Mushroom,try to go through the jungle.Avoid facechecking bushes at all cost and expect Mushrooms near important objectives(Dragon,Baron,buffs).Let the others go in frond of you and stay back when they entered a bush,cause the damage begins from a blast,effecting all the champions in the nearby area.
Blindind Dart:It is indeed an annoying spell for you,but if you stay behind your team or near it,he will not have the guts to come closer.If he manages to land his blind on you,go back to wait for the blinding effect to finish and then return to deal your damage.An important note is that,ALWAYS keep your Spinning Axes on,even if you are blinded.Hit everything that is near you,even if you do not make any damage.If you see that it is a big problem for you,I recommend 3140_32.png and then upgrade it to3139_32.png,it will help you to negate his Damage Over Time(DOT)from his Mushrooms and his Blind.
He is generally Squishy and you can easily beat him in 1v1 if you negate his blind.NEVER,BUT NEVER,follow him or chase him in the jungle.


Bonus:(MUCH BETTER now)
Teemo.jpg

VS

Thresh

Hard

He is often banned in rankeds, with a good reason.
Another CC, broken monster.If he manages to do his combo, you are pretty much dead.
His poke is also quite annoying.

With the recent patch, his armor got lowered.Do not let him collect souls early game,since he is weak then,so harrass him and be a bully in lane.Very possible to be a bloody lane with many ganks,since his lantern will give the oportunity to the enemy jungler to gank the lane easily.Go back if you see him acting suspucious,like going straight at you with low hp(baiting) etc.

Bonus:
Thresh.png

Tristana

Easy

Her early harass can be kinda frustrating, but you outdamage her.

Avoid standing near minions when she farms,and trade with her whenever you can.

Tryndamere

Medium

*General Matchup*
He will probably just split push all day long on top lane.During teamfights,putting some CC on him will shut him down pretty well.Also,wait for his Ultimate to end and then engage again.
Do not 1v1 him late game.

Bonus:
TRYNTA.jpg

VS

Twitch

Easy

Extremely Squishy,but able to deal a lot of damage and cause havoc in teamfights.
Harass this rat a lot early and outfarm him.His Q(invisibility)can be a little tricky sometimes,like preparing for ambushes and more.He can even recall while his Q is on.
Try to juke his slow because you do not want 2 stacks of his passive and obviously not the slow.Spread in teamfights,but do not get too far.

Bonus:
Twitch.png

VS

Urgot

Easy

Avoid getting hit by his E and you can trade with him very well.
Careful though because he is a long range caster.

Must also be noted to avoid getting close to his turret when he hits 6,because he ll' just do his combo and make you burn your flash and barrier or even die.

Bonus:
images?q=tbn:ANd9GcRdonM3zZ0Qn9qFQKswpoL

VS

Varus

Medium

He has excellent harassing methods and good damage output.
Kinda the same match-up here.

Avoiding his Q can be easy, but be careful when you are going to catch your axes,because most Varus players have a tendency to use it when you are going to catch your axes.
Also,when he used his E, leave from that area as soon as possible.

Bonus:
VARUS.jpg

VS

Vayne

Easy

Like 96_64.png, 67_64.png needs extremely babysit early game to shine late game.Deny her the opportunity to last hit and play aggresive against her.Also, your trades are far more superior than her.
Impressively, you are one of the few carries that can 1v1 her at any stages of the game IF you play your cards right!


Bonus:

Veigar

Medium

*General matchup*
Depends of how well-farmed he is.Late game his combo will insta-kill you,no matter what.
You will focus to avoid his AOE stun(one of the most powerful stuns),otherwise expect to be nuked.Some Veigars have a tendency to go close,use 3128_32.png and then Q+R to melt everything.Careful with that. I highly suggest 3140_32.png and then 3139_32.png,to remove his stun and megitate some of his damage.Remember that he is Squishy and can be killed fairly easily.

Bonus:
Veigar.jpg

VS

Vel'Koz

Medium

*General matchup*
This Cthulu-tentacle-hentai monster can be really tricky.His burst is "extraordinary" high and he can melt everything caught by his combo.Always be on move and remember,he is completely immobile(Darius style) and he has no form of sustain.Highly depended on player's skill.Late game he will poke a lot and will break your first lines of defenses in your team if left untouched.

Bonus:
VelKoz.png

VS

Vi

Medium

*General Matchup*
Depending on player's skill level.Her Ultimate is CC Immune(means it cannot be stopped unless she dies) and you will be one of her primary focus in the teamfights.You can still interrupt her Q(The Charge) with your Stand Aside20px-Stand_Aside.png(E).Useful to position yourself against her.Also,take a look at her build and see for what is she going for.(tanky,damage,but usually off-tank)

Bonus:
VI.jpg

VS

Vladimir

Easy

*General Matchup*
Vladimir has no actual CC to stop you,so you gonna do your job just fine.Yet,his Ultimate can cause you some big trouble during teamfights,increasing all the damage dealt to you by a percent amount,which it can be fatal for your life. Taking 3140_32.png will completely remove his Ultimate,another excellent way to avoid most of the damage.

Bonus:
VLAD.jpg

VS

Wukong

Medium

*General Matchup*
Except from the player's playing skill,the most important thing to watch at Wukong is his build.If he is going Tanky,you will only have to worry about the knock-up from his Ultimate.Yet,the most dangerous and true build path for me is Full Ad.Able to deal HIGH amount of damage,he will also disable you and your team with his Ultimate dealing even more damage.Less tanky,indeed,but the damage is getting ridiculous after a certain point of the game. Wukong players will understand.

Bonus:
WUKONG.jpg

Yasuo

*General Matchup*
His damage is pretty insane if he successfully land his combo.Also,his shield is quite powerful.Late game will critical everything that stands in his way.Including you.Avoid getting caught by his Tornado or generally any knock-up,otherwise you are pretty much dead.You can block his E with your Stand Aside20px-Stand_Aside.png(E).

A super needed-skills champion.He can basically outplay everything if he knows what to do.The only sure thing is that he is going to focus you a lot.Well,his burst is enough to get you killed,so stay near your allies and try to avoid most of his damage.21.png is a nice spell to reduce some of his damage and 3139_32.png is also an excellent item because you can remove his Death Mark,means you can cancel his Ulti.Generally a high damage champion depended on skills.

General playstyle Back to Top

Early game:

Early game is all about farming,taking a kill or two and secure dragons. Due to his nature,Draaaaaven20px-DravenSquare.png must be extremely aggresive during the laning phase.Harassing your opponents while making them lose last hits,therefore shutting them down,Draaaaaven20px-DravenSquare.png is a high-risk ADC with the potential of truly shining late game and leading his team to victory. He can even send enemy champions back to base at early levels,making them to lose gold and exp,while he is getting stronger. A passive Draaaaaaven20px-DravenSquare.png will never work in any laning phase and I have proved it to myself lots of times.

Mid game:

You will notice that mid game is to take important objectives (Dragon,buffs,sometimes Baron) and take a tower or two. Also, you will start to notice that teamfights are going to happen more frequently.Always try to be in a good position and have your ulti ready to pop it at an early fight.Positioning is a TOP priority for a Draaaaaven 20px-DravenSquare.pngplayer. Also, if you see that you are behind(kills,farm,etc),try to catch up by farming. Yet,try to not be passive most of the time.

Late game:

One of the scariest parts of the game due to the death timers (ex. 1min) and Baron,which provides a powerful buff to your whole team,often tried to be controled by both teams. Always be present in teamfights,since you are now one of the most important members in your team,and stay behind your allies. Never be in front lines because you will probably die. Like the enemy carry you have to stay back and focus everyone that focus you. If the enemy ADC is behind the enemy team, do not try to focus it.If you see that the enemy ADC or APC is overextenting, take the opportunity and kill them quickly.

General tips:

  • Always try to have an advantage over the enemy.
  • Try to farm as much as possible during the game.Draaaaaven20px-DravenSquare.png heavily depends on items.
  • Position is top priorety for Draaaaaaven20px-DravenSquare.pngplayers. Learn this by heart.
  • Calculate your damage and know the limits of your champion. How much punishment can you receive without dying,how much damage can you deal and what is your role in the team.

Laning phase:

First of all,your 1st priority during laning phase is to farm. Farming is one the most important jobs as an Ad carry.

Also,a note that you must hold in your mind.When you go to lane,always have your support near you. It is the other half of you. Without it,you will go nowhere in that game. Protect it,respect it,and coordinate with it. If you do not respect your support,you have no place in bot lane. Maybe somewhere else. A GOOD support with even a bad ad-carry,will win the lane.

Watch your lane. Is it passive? Only farming? Or bloody,with lots of tradings and kills?

-Farming and passive lane: All you will do in this lane is what the title say. Farming. You will focus on being passive,farm and protective. Always have vision and position.

-Bloody,trading lane: A very dangerous laning phase. During this time,you will focus on trading with your enemy,and since Draaaven20px-DravenSquare.png is superior to trades among the other Ad carries,thanks to his Spinning Axesdravenspinning.png(Q),is the king of trades. But one of most difficult parts is that you also have to maintain your farm. Trading and farming at the same time. Failing to do this will either result in one of the following:

  • Missing Minions,while the enemy is getting yours,will put you to a gold disadvantage.
  • Failing with trades(Ex. letting your opponent to hit you too much without reliating,missing your Axes etc),will put you to critical health and the enemy will take control of the lane,pushing you to tower or forcing you to constantly recall back to base,missing EXP and GOLD.(An aside note:Never stay in lane and risk your life while being on low health.It is better to miss some creeps than dieing.)

Generally,as you can see,it is a pretty hard laning phase,and with many high risks. But how can we do it better?

This is the part where your support shows you how good is he/she/it.But how can you know during this bloody lane?

  1. The support will help you during trades,by casting spells to harass or by Auto-Attacking.
  2. Will help you when you are low,by shielding or healing you and protecting you.
  3. Will have your lane warded to ensure protection from enemy ganks.(PRETTY important to note,that,during these kind of lanes,both of you and the enemy will be constantly low on health,giving another reason for the junglers to come and gank the lane. Take advantage of that and be careful at the same time.)

Farming under tower:

As the title says, sometimes you gonna need to farm under your tower,because you are either on low health or pushed. Draaaaven20px-DravenSquare.png is very capable of farming under tower,thanks again to his Spinning Axesdravenspinning.png(Q). Let's expain how.


Caster Minion:  Tower Hit ==> Spinning Axedravenspinning.png(Q) ( Or a hit from your support and Normal Hit)


Melee Minion:  Tower Hit ==>Tower Hit ==> Spinning Axedravenspinning.png (Q) or Normal Hit


Weaknesses:


First of all,it is hard for me to put the word "counter" against Draaaaaaven20px-DravenSquare.png

Let's just pretend that he has some "weak points", (Ridiculous,I know).

Basically,anything that makes you catch your Spinning Axesdravenspinning.png(Q) slower or even not at all,will make you weaker.

Let's set an example.Many people believe that Varus110_64.png,will give Draaaaaven 119_64.png(bigger image)a hard time in lane.Hypothetically speaking,it is true,but under some certain circumstances:

-Staying in his E (The cycle,healing reduction thingy),will make you lose important Lifesteal and Movement Speed.

-He can aim his Q at your Axe's dropping locations,but you can juke this if you are smart.

-Getting caught from his Ultimate will result in losing your Spinning Axes dravenspinning.png(Q) by making you unable to catch them.

We just clearly saw an example in a Match-Up lane.This also exists for enemy champions having the same mechanics and abilities.Be careful and plan your steps right.



Map awareness Back to Top

*WARNING! I want to update the photos from the new map,but I just need the time to do it,locations are the same though so only appearance really change *

Below you will notice some of the warding locations for your lane,dragon and Baron.In the same locations enemy wards may also exist,so calculate your position right and beware of ganks.

Lane: Common warding locations.Knowing the position of your enemies in lane is very important.Also,you must be aware for enemy ganks.

TEST 2.png


TEST 3.png


TEST 4.png



Dragon:
Common warding locations.Always try to secure the dragon and have vision for it.If the enemy team takes the dragon,you will be put in a gold disadvantage.Expect Teamfights to be forced there.
TEST 5.png


TEST 6.png


TEST 7.png



TEST 8.png



Baron:
Common warding locations. Baron is an important objective for your team.Many teamfights will be forced there.Be behind your team and engage carefully.( The RED X are also considered as Death traps,because enemies can easily engage to you and probably die.Also beware of pulls.)

Support's synergy Back to Top

89_64.png As I say it: " The killing lane".You guys have a great synergy together.Using her combo while using yours,you will see the enemy carry disappearing quicker than a chocolate cake in a birthday party. My favourite lane.



267_64.png Considered by many as " broken lane" due to her stun, following by your "buffed" Spinning Axesdravenspinning.png (Q),
thanks to her E, will cripple the enemy carry. Also, she can sustain you.



412_64.png Thresh is another viable support for Draaaaaaven20px-DravenSquare.png because of his aggresive nature. Another great synergy.




117_64.png One of my favourites.Able to poke and disable the enemy carry, this little yordle makes an excellent work with Draaaaaaaven20px-DravenSquare.png.



53_64.png Pulling you kills? What else you want? Successfully making his combo, this guy will make the enemies burn their flashes or even die.


40_64.png Another great support. Thanks to her shield,your trades will hurt A LOT more and you will be a able to absorb some damage.She also provides a great amount of CC(Crowd Control) and a team-fight reset Ultimate.


Generally, every support, if played well, can pair with Draaaaaaaven20px-DravenSquare.png. With the exception of Teemo.(I didn't want to put his face in my guide,sorry Teemo Lovers.:( )

16.png Able to provide you with the best sustain in game, with this support you can simply swirl your Moustache freely in lane. That means you can be aggressive as hell and be able to trade A LOT. Careful though to not overextend in lane and give yourself opportunities for the enemy jungler to gank. Keep the lane warded.

Pros and Cons Back to Top

Pros:
  • Extreme Snowballer
  • Amazing damage
  • Powerful trades 
  • Excellent last hits thanks to his Spinning Axes  dravenspinning.png (Q)
  • Can put an impressive pressure in lane
  • Mustache power!


Cons:

  • Hard to master as an ADC
  • Has no escaping methods( only a 1.5s Ms bonus)
  • Demands extreme positioning in teamfights       
  • His power decreases without his Spinning Axes dravenspinning.png (Q),dramatically  
  • 3.png is literally a pain for you.It heavly negates your Movement Speed and Attack Damage.                                                         
  • If 1 of your enemies bought 3075_32.png, then they will be like this:

Tips and explanations Back to Top

In this section, I ll explain and mention some tips and explanations,which some of them you may already know, or even all of them.

-Spinning Axes dravenspinning.png  (Q)
When you throw an axe, it will eventually land at your current location or near you or at the area you are moving at. To catch it again, you have to go at that shiny mark on the ground. Yet, you don't have to go at the middle of that mark. Instead,you can even catch it at the edges of that mark. This usually saves you time when farming or chasing or even trading.

Throw your Spinning Axes dravenspinning.png (Q) at a nearby minion to refresh your Blood Rush  dravenfury.png (W) by catching your axes.This provides you with a steady Movement Speed buff and an Attack Speed buff. Beware though because your mana is limited, so try not to waste it carelessly.

Usually, clever enemies will take advantage of you when you are going to catch you Spinning Axedravenspinning.png(Q) and try to hit you or aim their abilities on you. Avoid this by trying to land your Spinning Axe dravenspinning.png(Q) behind you.
Moreover, do not catch your Spinning Axes dravenspinning.png(Q) if you are going to put yourself in a disadvantage. For example, during a gank, under enemy tower, near enemy team etc.

-Blood Rush dravenfury.png  (W)
During trades with the enemy ADC, follow these steps:
1)Active your Spinning Axe dravenspinning.png (Q)
2)Aim the enemy ADC and active Blood Rush dravenfury.png  (W)
3)Hit, run back and catch your Spinning Axe dravenspinning.png (Q)
Repeat the following if you want for more damage. Otherwise hit and farm. Again, be careful with your mana.
 
-Stand Aside dravendoubleshot.png (E)
It is a powerful ability on an ADC and it has many uses.Use it to interrupt chanelled abilities, such as 55_64.png ulti and 9_64.png ulti and to maximize your damage during trades or fights.If you get ganked, use it to make a clear escape with the combination of your Blood Rush dravenfury.png (W).

-Whirling Deathdravenrcast.png (R)
In my opinion, one of the best ultimates in the game. Not have much to say though.
1)Excellent for clearing minions waves from afar with safety.
2)Able to deal massive damage to all the enemies in a teamfight if used properly.
3)It turns back,so it means you can do double damage.You can often turn the tables during a fight.
 
-League of Draaaaaven20px-DravenSquare.png  (Passive)
Many people believe that his old passive(Wicked blades) was way better than the new one. Well, let me tell you something. His old passive was bullshiet(it was amazing, but not compared with the new one).Yes,but why?

With your old passive, I can absolutely agree that you did way more damage to your targets than with the new one. Yet,what was the real impact to your gameplay with Draaaaven 20px-DravenSquare.png? Nothing. You just wanted to active your Q, hit the enemy and run back, or even apply further stacks.But how is this bad?

The old passive didn't let you focus at the main part that makes Draaaaven 20px-DravenSquare.png what he is: his Spinning Axes dravenspinning.png.
In the laning phase, you wanted to focus more AT your passive rather than your Axes.

Also, a real problematic issue was his late game. His passive had no point in terms of gameplay. Late game,most of the enemies will build armor to counter you. That means your passive did little-to-no damage at all,not to mention the limited stacks you could apply to your enemies.

So what now?
With my experience,I feel A LOT better with the new passive, and I can tell you why.
Draaaaaaaven 20px-DravenSquare.png  is 1 of the most,if not the best, potential snowballers in the game.(check this for further info: http://leagueoflegends.wikia.com/wiki/Snowball)Now,with your new passive, it helps you to achieve this even easier,letting you to dominate and carry games.

Let's explain and calculate some things:
When Draaaaaaven20px-DravenSquare.png catches a dravenspinning.png Spinning Axe, or kills a minion or monster or destroys tower, he gains one stack of Adoration. In addition, Draaaaaaaaaaven20px-DravenSquare.png generates 2 bonus Adoration stacks if he kills 6 minions in a row without dropping an axe. When Draaaaaaven20px-DravenSquare.png kills an enemy champion, he consumes all of his Adoration stacks and gains 2 gold per stack consumed. Also, Now grants a base 50 Gold bonus upon killing an enemy champion. Draaaaaaven20px-DravenSquare.png loses half of his Adoration stacks upon death. Now with every kill, you take a shower of gold!
Say that you have at least 100 stacks and you take a kill.You will earn 2*100+50=250  more gold!(Almost 17 minions)
Bounty values:
First Blood: 400 gold                    With at least 100 stacks:
1st kill(or 0): 300 gold                    +200+50=550g
2nd kill: 350 gold                           +200+50=600g
3rd kill: 408 gold (Killing spree)     +200+50=658g     
4th kill: 475 gold (Rampage)          +200+50=725g
5th kill: 500 gold (Unstoppable)    >>>>
6th kill: 500 gold (Dominating)      >>>>
7th kill: 500 gold (Godlike)            >>>>
8th kill: 500 gold (Legendary)        >>>>
9+ kills: 500 gold (Dravening)        >>>>

Moreover,this passive allows you to focus at your dravenspinning.png Spinning Axes more,since you need to gather stacks.
You will snowball much harder,able to buy better items and deal more damage. You can of course earn higher gold by having more stacks.




Entertainment Back to Top

Best lore in the game incoming:

Unlike his brother 20px-DariusSquare.png Darius, victory in battle was never enough for Draaaaaaven20px-DravenSquare.png . He craved recognition, acclaim, and glory. He first sought greatness in the Noxian military, but his flair for the dramatic went severely underappreciated. Thirsting for a method to share "Draaaaaaven20px-DravenSquare.png " with the world, he turned his attention to the prison system. There he carved out the celebrity he desired by turning the tedious affair of executions into a premiere spectacle.

At Draaaaaaven's20px-DravenSquare.png first execution, he shocked onlookers when he ordered the doomed prisoner to run for dear life. Just before the man managed to flee from sight, Draaaaaaven20px-DravenSquare.png brought him down with a flawless throw of his axe. Soon, all Draaaaaaven's20px-DravenSquare.png executions became a gauntlet through which Noxian prisoners raced for a final chance at life. He used this trial as his own personal stage, and turned executions into a leading form of entertainment. He rallied onlookers into a frenzy, while desperate prisoners scrambled to evade him. They never succeeded. Rejecting the solemn, black uniforms of Noxian executioners, Draaaaaaven20px-DravenSquare.png donned bright outfits and developed flashy signature moves to distinguish himself. Crowds flocked to see Draaaaaaven20px-DravenSquare.png in action, and tales of his performances spread quickly. As his popularity grew, so did his already-inflated ego. He belonged at the center of attention. Before long, the scope of his ambitions outgrew the population of Noxus. He decided that the glorious exploits of Draaaaaaven20px-DravenSquare.png should be put on display for the Entire World.

"The 'best' is wherever I decide to set the bar each day."

About me Back to Top

Currently, I am Diamond ,making my way higher and higher.I climbed up here thanks to this amazing ADC, mah love, called Draaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaven 119_64.png. My main role is ADC and I had around 500 ranked games with him in S3 ( win ratio 60-65% ~). In s2, I didn't play a lot,remaining around 50 games with him. I ll keep practising him until death and be a better Draaaaaaaaven20px-DravenSquare.png player. In S6 now,gonna try even harder. I am streaming,though I am not only restricted to LoL. Have some issues,yet I am gonna fix this soon. http://el.twitch.tv/dravening
Feedback is always welcome and thanks for reading my guide. If you want to dislike,please leave me a comment to explain why so I can fix that issue.Would really help. I ll update and answer whenever I can. Want to also thank Lol wiki for icons and important notes. Do not forget Draaaaaven20px-DravenSquare.png videos by those awesome dudes! Not to mention some pics!
