Movement speed (mid-lategame)
100% Crit exactly late game
33 Armor penetration
Very powerful Parrly and auto attack critical hits
HIGH sustainability Early Game

Squishy(like all cannons)
Not the best build for killing people early game

Guide Top

Okay, so this will be short and sweet.

the Power of this build lies in the late game. You will have 100% crit EXACTLY, 33 Arp, the Youmuu's active, and you will hit like a Truck.

We are talking 700-800 damage regular Crits, and 1000 Parrley Crits.

Why I take Remove Scurvy

Yes Raise morale is nice, and it may make us able to gank earlier. but when it comes down to it, early game is ALL about outfarming your enemy.

Taking Remove Scurvy over Raise Morale gives you SO much needed Lane sustainability.

this means MORE last hits, and outleveling your enemies.

Guide Top

your build doesnt specify what to do about boots..?

I get boots whenever I got some extra gold,

Say I finish my Trinity Force and have an extra 350G upon Recall, well I buy my first pair of boots.

I finish up boots whenever I feel I need the movement Speed boost,

since I like to farm, and not be very aggressive at start, I finish my boots Mid Game.

Early game

Early game you are going to start out with a sapphire crystal, and a mana potion(or health if you prefer.)

You will play it safe, you have two goals right now. Last Hit, and dont die.

the first time you go back to base you should be able to farm 860G (for Sheen)

buy sheen, and head back out to lane.

Buy your Zeal next, and then your Phage. Finishing with your Trinity

During Early laning phase, dont forget to poke your enemy with Parrley, your goal is to farm, and "Outsustain" your opponent, and make them Recall.

REMEMBER ! you are not a monster yet, so do NOT overextend, this is farming time.

Mid game

by now you have Trinity Force. You can one hit minions very easily and now can attempt to kill champions (dont get too crazy though,we still arent a critting beast, and we are a squishy champion)

Keep laning, last hitting, Farming Jungle mobs when it isnt Safe to push any further.

Get the gold for the Infinity Edge. it does NOT really matter the order you get the Infinity Edge in, I personally go for the Damage items ( B.F. sword and Pick Axe)

I take the damage items PURELY because it makes last hitting minions EASY as pie.

Finish up your Infinity Edge, now you are pretty dangerous. if you crit you will hit for 600 + Easily.

Late game

Now that you have your Infinity Edge, your Trinity Force, it is time to build Youmuu's Ghostblade. Build the Avarice Blade first, then Brutalizer and Finally Youmuu's.

After building this item you will have 70% Crit, 250 or something Attack Damage, and the Youmuu's Active (very useful with ghost + Raise Morale + Cannon Barrage)

You are now able to scare the **** out of people, when you crit, their health will drop by atleast half (800-1.1k Damage)

REMEMBER ! Keep farming, you NEED to finish your build ASAP, the power of this build appears when you have 100% Critical chance.

Now its time to build your Phantom Dancer. the 30% Crit from this item gives you 100% Crit Exactly.

Once this is built(trust me.. it will go quick haha) You will be a Super Fast Critting machine.

if it isnt a tank, it will die in 2 hits.

You suck at making a guide.

This is my first guide, I am unaware of how to Add symbols and etc,

So its a text guide !

Try the guide before you vote please !

I am going to hit "Require to Comment to Vote" because I would LOVE feedback, constructive or not.

Follow this build, and once you hit late game NOTHING will stand in your way.

Nocturne? Haha pop raise morale > parrley > auto > Dead

Tank? POKE HIM ! 500 damage Parrleys and 300 damage Auto attacks makes Tanks think twice about you.

That is my guide, thank you for looking, and may you have good Luck with this build (seeing as you need it until you finish the build : P )
