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 Guide is for Singed, who in my opinion is one of the most under appreciated team fight champions. The guide I am writing is based on my personal experience with Singed and may not work for everyone! But if you like it please comment, Thanks and GLHF!
The Runes I have selected here for Singed are Magic Penetration Marks, and Mana @ 18 Seals and Glyphs. I selected the Magic Pen marks because they will help increase your ability to harass the enemy team while running into combat streaming poison trail every where or keep them from chasing you if you trail and run in a zig-zag to spread poisons everywhere. The mana @ 18 glyphs and seals are great for Singed,1) more mana = more health, 2) With Archangels' Staff more mana = more AP, and 3) more mana means more abilities to cast!
My Mastery selection for this build is very support heavy as it adds mobility(very important for Singed to spread Poison Trail) Mana and Health regen, and ability CDR along with summoner spell CDR. The offensive portion is strictly for the CDR and Magic Pen(15% is great from Lvl1- Lvl18).
My item Build gives Singed some Hp, along with movement, tenacity, and regen, and since Singed already double benefits from stacking mana items, the Archangel's give us an AP boost to make our damage output higher. I usually build one of 5 item in my last spot.
Optional slot 6 items:
Sunfire Cape: Build this if there are alot of team fights.
Banshee's Veil: Get this to counter heavy CC teams, added mana and hp along with some magic resist too.
Thornmail: This item is a must for heavy AS/AD team builds.
Voidstaff: This item will wreck magic resist stacking teams.
Nature's Fury: Great for High AP teams.
I selected Flash and Ghost to give Singed even more mobility and both abilities can be used offensively or defensively with Singed. Other good options are Teleport and Exhaust. But Ghost I feel is a must for Singed as mobility is key to spreading out his damage very quickly.
Singed is great for team fights, and feeding a carry free kills. He can initiate in lane 2v2 or in full on team fight. Use Fling to set up kills for your team mates so they can easy burn down carries without worrying about getting killed themselves. Combining Fling into a Poison Trail and tossing out a Mega-Adhesive is a great way to set up carry kills. Using Singed's Insanity Potion to tower dive for kills and take more damage then the enemy is expecting in a team fight. Over all Singed I feel is designed to split up a team and make carries easier targets to kill, all while doing plenty of damage and slowing the enemy team.
Farming with Singed with Poison Trail once you acquire the Philosopher's Stone is the best way to gain a huge gold lead. You'll also get a substantial amount of your income from assist's in team fights.
Overall Singed can perform wonderfully as a tank, but I feel his true potential comes from being able to spread large amounts of damage and setup kills during a team fight. His field control and damage when combined properly make for an extremely deadly combo.
Thanks for reading and hopefully you'll find this guide helpful!
