Introduction - About Nochturne and why i made this build

As we all know, Nocturne is a hero based on attack-damage(AD). We are also aware of that he burst a shi*load of damage. Therefore he is always focused as one of the first in the "killing order" (KO).
This build makes sure, that you will be able to kill players without using/wasting your ultimate(ult) in a 1on1 fight.
This is my first guide, and since I really care about getting this build out for the people, who ain't doing it right with Nochturne, I would like you to +1 or add positive critic. I will be updating every single week!

Runes - Do they really make a major difference?

What runes to take?
First of all
Reds - Armor Penetration (ArmP, No brainer)
Yellows - You can either pick flat HP for beeing good at the very beginning, which i like alot - OR you can pick my favourite one Hp pr. level. Some of you might disagree with me, but the thing is about Nocturne is, that he is VERY easy to target down and i exerience that HP pr. level saves my life and gives me the WOW effect!
Blues - Ahh, finally the blues. This is simply just CDR. Not pr. level, but pure flat CDR! This gives the ultimate effect of OP'ness! More often shield, dmg, fear and even for more ETERNAL.. wait for it... DARKNESS!

Hard to play (W-spell)
Not the best teamfighter

Farming - Easy way!

As Nocturne is a hero with an AOE + heal as passive, it is important that you stand close to all enemies when attacking(gaining HP). And in the beginning you will have to focus on getting last hits. By doing this, you will increase your items faster and therefore be the best minionfarmer availble on your team!

Skill Sequence - For a quick and brief summary

W --> Q --> E --> Q --> Q --> R --> E --> Q --> Q --> W --> R --> E --> W --> W --> E --> R --> W --> E

Jungling - NOT going through this!

As i hate to jungle with Nocturne, I wont go though this unless iam asked to. I think that, there is proper jungling guides for Nochturne - BUT just because I don't like it, it doen't mean that it isn't good!


Guide Top

Team Work - Who do I need to lane with?

Here is a list of SOME of the heroes i often lane with:
Veigar
Taric (The one i love the most)
Sion
Blitzcrank
Evelynn

This is my favourite, since this is what some of my friends are playing and we do really good together!

ANY CC WILL REALLY DO THE JOB! JUST HIT WITH YOUR DB(Duckbringer)
