Threat Champion Notes

Ziggs Ziggs is a pretty easy matchup, the main key to victory is last hitting under tower, since Ziggs will be clearing waves much faster than you. Wait for a gank and use your slow to make Ziggs a free kill. Ziggs only escape skill makes him unable to change his direction while in air, which makes it a breeze to hit him with your Ulti.

Introduction

I will be updating this guide over the coming time, please feel free to tell me what it needs


This build is the first in an upcoming series of untraditional playstyles. These builds will all aim to make you a better player overall by teaching you the value of each and every spell and their individual scaling.

In this build I will be going over the major aspects of playing AP Ashe aswell as a few mechanics and gimmicks that can be applied to other champions as well.
This includes, but is not limited to, the insane amount of damage and CC that Ashe brings with her ult, and how much she misses out on if it does not connect.

Aswell as the value of the high BASE damage of her Volley which we will be taking advantage of in the early game.

Before you try it out, there are a few things you must know:

1. AP Ashe is without a doubt a troll build, but this guide is a serious take on how to make it work and have fun at the same time.

2. With the nerfs to Lich bane, Liandrys and Athenes combo on AP Ashe has lost a ton of strength.

3. An AP Ashe WILL fail, if the enemy team is full tank / off tank AND if she isent the in the lead of farming.

4. People WILL flame, when you tell them "I am AP Ashe"

5. AP Ashe is all about landing her Enchanted Crystal Arrow

6. Ashe is a strong support with her high CC and Hawkshot active, so if mid is occupied do not fret

7. When playing AP Ashe "KS" means "Kill Secured" and nothing else

Runes

For runes I recommend scaling AP Glyphs, Seals and Quints and Magic penetration Marks

Runes

Greater Mark of Magic Penetration
9

Greater Seal of Scaling Ability Power
9

Greater Glyph of Scaling Ability Power
9

Greater Quintessence of Scaling Ability Power
3


The reason behind this is to maximise AP at lvl 6, this is where you will turn the tides of your lane with Enchanted Crystal Arrow

A good alternative however, is taking a few AD runes for early harrass and easier CS'ing
-I would recommend using these when fighting strong earlygame champions, such as: LeBlanc, Cassiopeia and Talon

Greater Quintessence of Gold combined with Hawkshot's passive is another great alternative as it will allow you to finish your build faster and increase your impact on the game

Items

I mentioned earlier the importance of being ahead in farm. Ashe only has one ability with an AP scaling (we are compensating by buying Lichbane or Nashors to give her 2-3 active damage sources), this means she needs to pack a ton of damage into these few damage sources, and therefore has to maximize the stat gain per gold spent.


Doran's Start?


/
Stat wise Doran's items are extraodinarily good, but lack the ability to be upgraded at a later point. The most usefull stat is the 70 health which allows most people to survive the early laning until they can get a better item.
However if you feel this is not a problem, go ahead and start with a or


Footwear?


Now to every female's favorite part of a guide, which pair of boots to pick.
As you should have learned by simply playing League every pair of boots are used for diffrent reasons and in diffrent matchups, situations etc. and I will not go into details about these factors but instead of what they do for AP Ashe


With Ashe's few magical abilities these boots sound like a total waste, however Ashe also needs to squeeze every single last drop of damage out of her Ult Enchanted Crystal Arrow, Lichbane, Nashors or the like.
This makes these boots one of the best choises, their flat Magic Penetration also helps to increase the otherwise low damage early game to more tolerable values.

- Combo these boots with Liandrys torment and you have a total of 30 flat Magic Penetration, enough to leave enemies without MR runes at 0 MR.


These boots give an insane 15% CDR for a cheap price, combine this with the mastery and you will already be half way to 40% CDR.
Personally I now prefer the Magic penetration boots at the expense of having to buy another CDR item, but I used to rush Lucidity Boots.

- Combo Sorcery Mastery will get you to 20% CDR with one item


Boots of Mobility doesn't grant any extra stats to Ashe during laning, and even comes with a lower speed than anyother pair during skirmishes, so why pick these?
The out of combat movespeed is the answer to that, many matchups require you to roam to win, and even if it isn't required it is highly adviseable to help out your fellow laners.
Boots of Mobility lets you roam from mid to top/bot and back to mid in half the normal time, which means twice as many possible ganks and objectives.

- Combo with your jungler or another roaming lane to grab objectives and do ganks
