Threats to Ashe with this build
Welcome to this icy corner of the Freljord where Ashe, descendant of Avarosa, rules her people fairly and kindly. But you;re here to figure out how to use one of the simplest champions in the League, so let's discuss why you should even consider her!
She is a constant crowd control emitter. Her passive makes every auto attack slow the enemy, and your critical strikes double this slow! If your team seems light on the cc side, this champ is the one for you.
Her E, Hawkshot, is an amazing tool that can grant global vision in a line. Combine this with the blue trinket at level 9, and there is no reason Ashe should ever be caught out (at least not to her surprise). This also grants insane objective control/retaliation.
Her ultimate, Enchanted Crystal Arrow, is another global ability that stuns the first champion struck for a length of time depending on how far the arrow traveled. It's an excellent engagement tool with insanely easy picks!
So if you wanna impact the game all around the map while being stuck bot lane, she is for you!
Life Steal Options:
I said I'd explain the difference and benefit of each choice above, so I shall!
Bloodthirster - A solid defensive choice in any game. Ashe's heavy late game attack speed allows you to build this shield up instantly and it will keep you from getting bursted as much late game (which shouldn't happen if you position yourself wisely)!
Blade of the Ruined King - A solid offensive choice against HP stacking opponents. Combining this item with Lord Dominik's will help you shred any Healthy enemy.
Mercurial Scimitar - A must item against AP heavy teams or cc heavy teams. If you're facing a Nasus, buy this. Wither be gone.
Pros / Cons
- Constant CC
- Global Influence
- Long range autos
- Easy Picks with Ult
- Vulnerable to gap closers
- Incredibly squishy
First thing is first, don't Q minions. Just don't. Ok. No the real discussion.
You are equipped with Volley, easily allowing you to farm multiple minions at once and apply pressure to any lane, but you should only use this in said scenario. It is mana costly early, and it can save you from a ganking enemy jungler if you don't have your arrow ready.
Feel free to shoot minions twice, since your passive will empower the second auto and help you clear faster. Again, this is an aggressive option.
Alright so this is a pretty straightforward guide on how to get you started. Ashe isn't a complicated champion, but handling her positioning and immobility can take getting used to. Just remind yourself you're summoning a human ice machine that can't be touched if you're aware of your surroundings. So good luck and have fun!
