Summoner Spells Back to Top

  1. 12.png/4.png  My favourite summoners. The Teleport-Ult combo is sick.
  2. 3.png/4.png  Good vs Riven/Fiora/Rengar and some other assassins. 
  3. 14.png/4.png  If you feel more aggressive and less collective.

New Runes Back to Top

Masteries Back to Top

IMO Thunderlord's Decree is the best option as it gives you extra damage when you jump on someone with your nocturneparanoia.png and burst him down with your full combo. Can proc it easy, even in lane with nocturneduskbringer.png-Auto-Attack-nocturneunspeakablehorror.png for harrasment.

Pretty obvious. Q is your damage. E for more CC time and damage.

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    Best starting option for farming lane and passive gameplay at early game.
    For aggro gameplay and kill attempt.

Core Items

    The best one-shot build out there. You can even sell boots for Trinity in late game.

Situational Items

    Sell boots for this. Overkill if you are ahead even by a bit.
    If you play 1v9 and need to engage, 1-shot someone, die and still make it 4v5 for your team, this is the item.
    Consider this only if they dont have squishes and need to last in a teamfight more.
    The only defencive item I mention in this build, besides GA. Its active is the only reason I pick it in some situations. Their Malzahar keeps his ult for you and only you? Bring this with you next time.

VS

Cho'Gath

Hard

Possible to handle only if you shut him down early. Really important to spellshield his silence or knockup. He has great sustain way better than yours. Try to kill him early or play passive and lvl6 go straight for a gank on mid or bot.

VS

Darius

Hard

His Q is retarded. Only way to win this if darius is worse than you. Prefer to take a melee range Q from him and always fight if you have landed your Q and have available your passive and fear. After 6 you are propably dead, so straight on your way to gank other lanes and feed on them.

VS

Dr. Mundo

Easy

Cant kill you and you cant (propably) kill him. He will go full tank so dont bother solo killing him. Farm till lvl6 and then ult mid or bot for some kills or flashes.

VS

Fiora

Medium

Pretty high damage and a parry. But still if you fight in your Q you also have flat AD boost and can turn the fight in your favor with your fear (Fiora has no CC). Try to absord one of her Q to get the double AS boost and prevent some serious damage (especially if she maxes out Q). IMO skill matchup.

VS

Fizz

Medium

Can kill him early if you land Q, have passive and land the fear.

VS

Garen

Medium

Something like Mundo with the difference Garen can be annoyning. Still you have your W for his silence. Try to farm till lvl6 and gank mid or bot.

VS

Gragas

Hard

He should be banned. Gosh!!!

VS

Hecarim

Hard

Ok early but after some items Hece becomes a monster. Let him push and ask for ganks. If you play it perfectly you can also win a 1v1 vs him early game.

VS

Irelia

Hard

Only way to spellshield her stun. If not then you are propably f****d. Like Hecarim after some items she becomes monster. So ask for ganks or if you feel confident try to kill her early. 

VS

Jax

Easy

He has his E but you have your W. He can dodge your AA but you can dodge his stun. He is pretty weak early so dont be afraid to fight him (just be sure you fight in your Q).

VS

Lee Sin

Medium

Avoid his Q early and you are ok. If he maxes E first try to avoid E. He has damage but so do you.

VS

Lulu

Hard

Really annoying and with decent damage (as soon you dont have MR). Survire farm and try to gank...a lot.

VS

Malphite

Medium

No way to kill him. no (as far as I know) way he kills you. Same as all tanks, farm till 6 and gank for kills.

VS

Maokai

Hard

Same as above. Be carefull for ganks cause there is escape from his W. 

VS

Mordekaiser

Hard

Great poke but no mobility. Ask help from jungle.

VS

Nasus

Easy

He will build Frozen Heart ASAP and also he will play like a chicken. Try to deny him minions and harrass him as he tries to farm. As soon as you have all your spells up and land a Q you win the trade early. Try not to stay and fight in his E. If you dont kill him early go fed on other lanes.

VS

Poppy

Hard

POPPY IS OP AF

VS

Renekton

Hard

Bully of top lane. Stun, good heal and good damage. Try to survive and farm. Lvl6 gank. Wait for late game. Rene is a kite, when you are an assassin who can one-shot their carries.

VS

Rengar

Medium

They took him from you, so they must pay. I assume you know what a Rengar is capable of and how to play against him (away from bushes and 5-ferocity fights).

VS

Riven

Easy

Exhaust is really good. W her stun or knockup and you can out-trade her izi. Try to not wait for her lvl3. Your early damage is way higher than hers. (Yes i have played this matchup a lot and still no Riven so good to solo kill me early. Yeah there were Rivens that knew what to do and survived early game and dominated mid-late game). At lvl6 you can gank other lanes way better thatn her.

VS

Rumble

Medium

If he farms he becomes enormous. Your early damage is way higher than his. Try to trade him. Care for him yellow bar. In most of the cases if Rumble doesnt play passive you can kill him early lvls.

VS

Ryze

Hard

Broken atm. Nothing more.

VS

Shen

Medium

One more tank. He cant kill you solo. He will go for ganks. You can always W his taunt and escape. Don't bother killing him either. Go for ganks and be ready for his ult as you do this.

VS

Shyvana

Hard

After the W buff I havent played this matchup yet. She was hard to handle before especially with TP/smite summoners, so I believe that now she is even more pain in the @$$. She builds tanky? Ult mid.

VS

Sion

Hard

One of the tanks that can actually kill you. Try to avoid fighting him. Lategame he will be frontline while you kill the carries.

VS

Swain

Hard

Kill him early or leave to kill someone else after 6. Without ignite is impossible unless you managed to kill him pre-6. Good poke with his E.

VS

Teemo

Hard

Satan

VS

Tryndamere

Medium

Exhaust op in this matchup. Also IMO a lucky-based matchup. If he goes all in and crits 2-3 hits you are done. Otherwise you kill him even lvl1.

VS

Vladimir

Easy

Try to pressure him early levels. His Q has pretty big CD. He has low damage and he is item-orriented. Try to kill him before lvl4 if possible.

VS

Volibear

Medium

No ignite=no kill on him. His W hurts a lot as his HP drops so beware. Another tank, so focus on survive and kill mid or bot with your ult.

Combo Back to Top

Get vision on your target > Pop Youmuu's > Ult > Q while you land on them > E immidiately > AA with passive > Hydra > AA again > If they didnt die they are too tanky > hunt them down to finish them off.

Early Game Back to Top

Get your 2041_32.png and 2003_32.png2004_32.png go to lane and farm. You need your 3077_32.pngt and lvl6 to start your assassination efforts. Be aggressive only if you are sure you got this. If you fall behind, the game will be a nightmare.

Mid Game Back to Top

After lvl6 everytime you have ult and the circumstances allow it, gank mid or even bot. It's better to walk all the way bot, ult, possibly grab a dragon and then 12.png back top, where you can farm till your ult comes out of CD and you are available to ult/gank again.

Late Game Back to Top

Squishes. Kill them. If you can pick someone squishy enough alone he is dead meat. ADC will burst both summoners and yet can die to you. Deep vision is the key to pick them alone. For example a deep ward outside their base around their red buff, will give you the chance to pick and kill enemy ADC.

Teamfights Back to Top

Your target is the carries. APC will have zhonyans lategame so prioritize the ADCs. If you are not behind and you excecute the combo perfectlly they will die in an instance. Avoid initiating cause you are not tank and if you jump alone, they will turn on you at once and you will die instantly. Wait for the team to engage and assassinate the carries.
