Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
This is my first guide for ranked playing, though do not be so hard to me.
Also I would like you to try this build before voting.
Maybe you just want to vote up, because this build is a GG itself, but you should play it before, thanks :)
This is my pew pew Sniper Ashe build for premade 5v5.
Normal test or ranked your decision. (changed)
Post gamestats with this build, you had in ranked games in this thread!
Pros and Cons
-Endless slow---> kiting
-legendary sniper (better than caitlyn!)
-q w & e not scales as good as R does
-boring after 1800 Elo
-often people know how good Ap-Ashe is and will just build items vs you.
Ok, there are many Items to take with Ashe.
Because Ap is best, your selection is a bit smaller.
First I will explaine your normal build, then additional items, which are also viable and which you should buy in special situations.
You start off with fiendish codex?
Well this item gives you CdR mana regen and ap.
You can shoot your volley and your ultimate more often though
Finishing it to deathfiregrasp
Even improve that stats and gives you another ability dealing damage.
Getting Ionian boots of Lucidity gives you another 15% CdR
Now you got allready 30% CdR, with blue buff you maximize your CdR to 40%.
(In case steal it from your jungler with a good volley its possible)
Lich Bane is your second damage item.
With the passive you are dealing even more damage. It procs everytime with volley on 2.8 second CD.
The magicresist and movement is also a positive effect, but the passive and the AP boost is more necassary.
Now you are dealing good damage, but you are pretty squishy.
So you are going to buy RoA.
It gives you more mana which is definetly needed and of course AP.
Also you are not so squishy anymore.
Enemys probably are allready scared and stacking magic resistance.
Though you will buy Void Staff.
This really improves your damage now!
Finally, after your 13/0/37 stats you will buy Rabadons.
I guess I do not need to explaine this...
There are other viable items you can buy on this Ashe.
(You also can change the order how you like btw, but you need to buy Deathfire Grasp as early as possible)
If you do not feel save get this first
This is a great item. But you need % penetration in my oppinion.
Also it is an aura item...Not good for sniping.
Nice Ap boost. More mana/-regen. Nuff said.
In good early use this.
I do not think you need more slow. But if you want...
Takes to long to build in my oppinion for not enough offense effect.
While out of combat, Ashe's critical strike chance increases by 3/6/9/12/15/18% every 3 seconds, removed after next attack.
This is just usefull for level one and lategame with lich bane.
Toggle: Ashe's basic attacks slow her target's movement speed by 15 / 20 / 25 / 30 / 35% for 2 seconds.
Good for constant slow.
Ashe fires 7 arrows in a cone dealing attack damage + 40 / 50 / 60 / 70 / 80. Volley also applies Frost Shot.
Its your main ability until level 6.
After you will spamm it to get lichbane proc.
Passive: Ashe gains 1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 extra gold whenever she kills any unit.
Active: Ashe animates a Hawk to scout for her, revealing terrain as it flies toward target location.
Scouting is nice everytime.
Especially with CdR.
Enchanted Crystal Arrow
Fires a large arrow in a straight line. If it hits an enemy champion, it will stun that champion for up to 3.5 seconds, based on the distance the arrow traveled, and deal 250 / 425 / 600 (+100% of ability power) magic damage. Additionally, surrounding units take half the damage and are slowed.
This is why you play Ap Ashe.
Scales 100$ :)
You will snipe snipe and snipe moaaaar!
Perfect for taking mid and doing Utlimate+Port.
Pushing lanes is also viable with it.
My favourite summoner spell.
Usefull in many diffrent situations.
Chasing, evade ganks...
Love this spell too ;)
You need manaregen in all parts of the game.
With this you nearly get 40% CdR
Especially for early squishyness.
How to play Ashe.
First. Everytime you are base, fire your ultimate.
Do it. If you do not see anything, fire it in their fountain or at any buff.
GO MID! IF SOMEONE OF YOUR TEAM IS GOING MID, GO MID!
Play agressive but do not push to much.
Spam your yolley and try to harrass but not get harassed.
Farm as much as you can and go back when you can buy at least one item.
Its ultimate time!
Watch out for low life enemys and initiate ganks on other lanes with your ultimate.
If theres no chance, fire it to harrass or kill your enemy in mid.
Steal blue buff if possible...
Red is also ok.
Probably you already won this...^^
One hit enemys...
One hit nashor...
One hit Lee Sin before nerf...
Drink alcohol with Urf...
Two ways for playing this ranked.
You tell your team that you are going to play Ap-Ashe.
If you like you can do it after the game started, I prefer to tell it in selection.
If someone is leaving he gets a leave and a loss.
Also you get flamed earlier and more.
The "OH MY ****ING GOD"
You say nothing.
Maybe ss or something or tell your team they shoould stop feedind, but you wont say you are ap.
They will see it.
And they will be like. DA ****?!?
I like this most.
