Hi and thank you for checking out my Ashe the frost Archer build! I would like to share my strategies and tecniques for using Ashe in a solo or group setting. Ashe is a great character choice for inexperienced players and ranked players alike. Her range is among the best in the game and her ice arrows allow for great crowd control. Ashe makes a great addition to any party!
I tend to select Runes that reduce the cooldown rate of the character. Lowering the cooldown time for Ashe's abilities is a key element to this particular build for Ashe. The addition select Runes that increase physical attack damage and increase attack speed. Try to use all available Runes slots. Spend extra influence to buy Runes.
For this build focus spending your Mastery points on Attack. Focus of increased damage and penetration. There really is no wrong way to build the Mastery tree. Tailor the tree to fit your style of play.
This is a very important part of this build technique. It is designed to be purchased in order. Buy Doran's Bladle first. This will give you a little extra kick at the start of the game as well as a trickle of hp to keep you in the battle. As soon as you are ready to buy Berserker Greeves do so as this will increase your attack damage and attack speed which will increase your gold intake! Try to stay in battle as long as you safely can while you earn the gold to buy Manamuna. Pay it in pieces if you must begining with items that increase your mana. As soon as you have bought Manamuna turn on your ice arrows and leave them on. Manamuna increases your mana pool and ability damage which is very helpful for Ashe. Manamuna is key. Everything else just increases the speed and damage of your charater.
I have included only the fisrt six steps in my skill sequence. These are the most importatant steps those preceding are as important. Gaining the Ice Arrow is key to making Ashe a deadly character. After you have followed the six steps in my build just select those skills that have relevence to the game at hand.
Select Ghost and Teleport. Ashe is a ranged support character and should be played as one. These two spells allow for Ashe to get around the battlefiled quickly. Ghost should be used as a evasive tactic. If you find the battle getting to hot for Ashe use Ghost to escape. Teleport should be used to return to battle after a return to the base or as a way to quickly engage in a battle near one of your teams turrets.
Ashe needs lots of gold to buy to buy items so that means effective farming. Use Ashe's range to your advatage. Stand behind ranged minions and never over extend. It is easy to be caught off guard and Ashe's is easily taken if out numbered.
Ashe is a great charater to solo the mid with but when the later phases of the game begin Ashe really starting to shine. The key to success with Ashe is in her Ability to help her team. Her special "Ice Arrow" is a game changer. Try not to use it until your team is close enough to charge into the target recieving the Ice Arrow. It can also be used to help other escape a battle.
Don't be Afraid to use mana. This build is geared toward Ability use. Fire as many Frost arrows, Hawkshots, volly's and Ice Arrow's as you can after reciving the Manamuna and continue Pushing enemy minions around to earn gold. Good luck and thanks for checking out my Ashe Build.
