Introduction

Hey guys! This is a guide for using the ranged AD carry Ashe. Ashe is by far one of the best AD Carries in League of Legends. Her slow arrows, crowd control, hawkshot, and initiating ultimate make her vital to her team. In this guide you will learn what items, runes, masteries, and summoner spells Ashe needs to be productive.

First, we will start with Ashe's pros and cons....

Masteries

The only true way to maximize Ashe's damage output is by using the 21/x/x masteries. My masteries are 21/9/0 and i use them because Chaox explained Ashe well in his live stream and i have had great success with these masteries.

21/0/9
21/9/0

Summoner Spells

Flash - Teleports your champion to target nearby location.
Flash is going to help you escape when you get into a sticky situation. It can be used for chasing but i normally like to keep it for survival purposes.
Exhaust - Reduces a target's Attack Damage by 70%, Ability/Item damage by 35% and slows its Movement Speed by 40% for 3 seconds. 550 Range (estimate).
Exhaust is the best option for an AD carry. Some may argue that Ghost is better but there is good reasoning behind both Summoner Spells.

Runes


Greater Mark of Desolation x9
15.03 Armor Penetration
These Marks are going to give you the needed armor penetration that Ashe needs. This is the only viable choice for Ashe in my opinion.

Greater Seal of Resilience x9
12.69 Armor
These Seals will give you a little bit of an advantage early game against the enemy's AD carry.

Greater Glyph of Clarity x9
0.0495 mana regen / 5 sec. per level (8.91 at champion level 18)
Mana regen is always a needed for Ashe

Greater Quintessence of Strength x3
6.75 Attack Damage
The damage output is almost the same as 3 Quint's of Desolation plus, you will last hit better early game.

Runes - Viable but not Recommended

Marks - Flat AD, attack speed

Items

Ashe is heavily reliant on her items. Last hitting minions efficiently is the only way to do well with Ashe. Most of her items are very expensive and will need a good creep score to succeed.

Starting Item:
Doran's Blade is the best starting item for Ashe. 100 HP, 10 AD, and 2% lifesteal are crucial on Ashe early game. Boots and 3 health potions can be used but ultimately you want to grab a Doran's Blade for better laning power.

Early game you really want to focus on zoning your opponent(s) with volley, your passive first hit crit, and last hit as many minions as possible. If you have trouble laning, you should buy a maximum of 3 Doran's Blades for some early survivability.

Your goal should be to farm until you hit 2000+ gold and you can buy boots and a B.F. Sword

Mid-Game Core:
After purchasing Infinity Edge, your will now want to buy a Phantom Dancer. The critical strike chance, attack speed, and added movement speed on top of Infinity Edge will really pack a punch. On top of that, we will also have a Last Whisper for when the enemy team starts to stack armor.

Survivability:
After you purchase your mid-game core, you will want some survivability before your last offensive item. Banshee's Veil will be your #1 choice 90% of the time but there will be times when Quicksilver Sash or Guardian's Angel will come in handy.

Late Game Offensive Item:

Blood Thirster - Awesome DPS item that gives us a bit of indirect survivability. Get this item if your team is obviously winning or if enemy team lacks tanky champions.

Madred's Bloodrazor- DPS item that will help take down tanks who are stacked with health and armor.

Wit's End - This is a very underrated item that actually works really well against tanky teams. Killing tanks should be easier with the addition of this item.

Summary

Ashe is always going to have the same role as a ranged AD carry. Ashe's teammates heavily rely on her accuracy with her ultimate, use of her Q(slow arrows), and use of her W(Volley).

Thank you for taking the time to read my guide. Leave comments and let me know what you think. Please don't play one game with this guide, do bad, and then come here flaming. Use the build a few times, tweak some things as you please, and then tell me how you like it.

I will try my best to keep this guide up to date.
