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.
Hi there!Ashe is one of my personal favourite ranged AD carries in game atm.She has great utility and can initiate fights.She doesn't have a good early game, but her Mid -Late game is quite rewarding !
For runes i have 2 setups ,on these build i use 25 arm pen,mana regen ,Mr glyphs.This is typical runes that any1 has ,but if by any chance u have these runes i strongly recommend them : Ad marks OR Arm Pen(Your choice),Flat Armor seals,Flat MR glyphs,And Flat AD Quints(You can also add one arm pen if u havent used arm pen at marks)If you went AD marks it should be like this 13 AD,13arm,13MR,3.3armpen---If you went ArmPen Marks it is like this 15 arm pen ,13arm,13mr,7Physical damage.This way u have quite strong early game with 9armpen(+6 from masteries,most carry champions armor is 10-20) and a 16 AD boost (+3 From Masteries) OR 21 arm pen(masteries) 13 armor ,13 MR, and 10 AD(+3 from masteries) which is one more doran.
For items i go boots x3 pots first and and b when i have nuff gold for 2 Dorans (Sometimes if i am bot lane + support i start with Doran's Blade).Buy the dorans and your boots.After that go straight for ur Infinity Edge (Or if u find yourself vulnerable take a zeal ,you will find the movement speed quite usefull ,Up to you) After Inf.Edge rush a Phantom dancer,From there on you will do some decent damage (also don't focus tanks u wont damage them at all if they have over 140 armor).After Phantom Dancer go for Banshee's or Guardian Angel if you feel that u die easy and your tanks can't protect you,or else go Last whisper .Then buy your banshee's.If they game goes longer ,something rare get your thirster.You will be doing crazy amount of damage by then.
For Masteries i go 15-0-15 (If i run Exhaust-Flash i take improve flash /exhaust)
If I run Ghost-Flash(Highly recommended ,because it saves you and you can kite like a boss)I take improve Flash/Ghost
On offence i take Spell pen,ArmPen,And the 3 AD
On utility i don't usually take the buff mastery ,because ashe doesn't need buffs(Something that makes her quite special).
For Skills Start up with W (Volley),Continue with E(Hawk shot ) if they have a fast jungler(For example Elementz udyr guide : You will be level 2 by the time he ganks) and then at level 3 Q (Or W if you see yourself harrasing them quite good)Farm >Harras tho.After that level Up W and your ult at level 6 and at lv 8 take Q ,When u max out W go for Q and then E at last.
For Summoner's as i already told at Masteries section i like to run with Ghost/Flash or Exhaust/Flash .That's up to you . I recommend Ghost for better kiting-escaping.
Don't take your team buffs , you don't need them as Ashe .If you have a melee AD on your team let him have red.Blue goes to AP carry anyways .If your team dies a lot and you don't , take both buffs.Buffs and Baron are quite important mid-late game.You can initiate Fights with Arrow and help your team by locking enemies with Permaslow.
Your Ultimate (Enchanted Crystal Arrow) is something Unique use it wise at early level(nerfed to 100 sec cd ) .Don't use it recklessly f.e. 1 min before the enemy team dragons.You will lose a good aoe slow ,a stun and a great initiation overall.Also your Q is the best slow in game cause it is permaslow(I know it is not the most powerful)You should have it always on at fights.
Early game you should Farm as Ashe ,She isn't like tristana (great early game harras).at around 15-16 mins u can have ur Infinity edge This way .If you dont lose any CS at 13 min point mark you will have IE and some dorans ,if you do FORCE DRAGON immediately,if you are losing it will turn the game ;).If you are winning you have secured the game .
Pros / Cons
Great utility for team overall
Squishy till you get Banshee's /Guardian Angel
If you don't know how to position you will be bad with her
(If you don't know how to position,you might as well practice on it or play tanks.)
