Summoner Spells Back to Top

It should come to no surprise that you'll be taking smite going through the jungle route.

Flash is an essential summoner spell and it's highly inadvisable to take otherwise.
Flash: Can be used to engage on an opponent or used defensively to escape from danger.
Smite: Casted on NPC's for a significantly faster jungle route. 

After some testing I figured out that flash is not really necessary, you your Q which can work as an escape and can be used to pass through walls, so consider taking ignite or exhaust depending on the enemy team composition.

Masteries Back to Top

If you're planning to use the Shadow Assassin form, it's best to take Thunderlord for the bursting potential.


As for the Darkin form, Ferver of Battle goes very well with that form and it's highly recommended to use it.

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

Core Items

    This is the core build if you decide to take the Shadow Assassin path.
    As for the Darkin form, you should focus on a more off-tank build and healing effects such as Spirit Visage and a Death's Dance, reasoning behind that is that the Darkin form's passive heals for 35% when you use your abilities.

Situational Items

    On the Darkin path, focus on heavy armor if the enemy team has a full AD team.
    As for if the enemy team has a heavy AP team composition, then focus on heavy magic resist (This only applies on the Darkin path)
    Lethality Build Example (High Risk High Reward)

General Tips & Tricks Back to Top

The Shadow Assassin form is more fun to play but you should choose carefully which path to take depending on the situation.

Go the Shadow Assassin form if the enemy team has a lot of squishy targets
Darkin form is preferred if the enemy team has a rather tanky\healthy champions.

During the Shadow Assassin form, your W has no animation thus you can use it to double cast with your abilities
Example; W > Q or W > R.

The Darkin form is practically overpowered, you should take it almost always on ranked games, the passive heals for 35% when you use your abilities on champion so having heaving improving items is highly recommended such as Spirit Visage and a Death's Dance.
