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 is a burst dps poppy and DAMN dooes it own. You may have 2 make some changes based on your situation but the base should b the same <sorry 4 gramer =P>
Ignite- Always a good choice for mele dps because who really enjoys seeing twitch fading away with maybe 5ph.
Exhaust- Poppy already has amazing speed but you need to be able to kill the enemy b4 they reach their tower so exhaust allows you 2 catch up even faster.
i no its really weird but it makes sence 2 me.
i went for Spell pen, the upgraded summoner spells and CDR and FINISHED IT with havoc in attack.
in defence i went for the armor and MR because poppy is way too squishy in the begining of the game and finally i put 3 into health and mana regen because poppy has a VERY small mana pool. i would have put 3 into strength of spirit, but once again poppy has a VERY VERY small mana pool so it really wouldn't have helped (but if anyone wants to do the math and corrects me go ahead)
Crit strike damage marks b/c of the eventually 80% crit chance
MR glyphs because Poppy's MR is friggin horribleand you could easily b face rolled espeially early on
hp/5 seals b/c i didnt see anything else appatizing (plz hlp (>T.T<))
finally armor pen glyphs because your devastating blow attack is attack damage not magic and it goes well with the Last Whisper
you start out with a sapphire crystal and 2 HP pots simple enough use em when you need 2
then we start 2 build your core items with mercury treads (could be switched out with boots of speed or any other shoes but i like the MR and the passive) and sheen (YOU NEED THIS IF YOU R EVEN CONSIDERING DOING WELL). you should go back once you have enough money for them both, after u r lvl 6 of course.
after sheen you get zeal and then finally trinity force. i no trinity is a big item for your second one but its crazy good for poppy with the movement sped, slow, attack damage, attack speed, AP and all that other good stuff.
Next we have stark's fervor i really like the passive on this it has everything poppy needs; hp/5 some life steal and attack speed.
next unfortunataly is infinity edge the mother of all items and the most necissary on any attack damage based champion. just git er dun!( i usually go back when i got enough for the BF sword and grind thru the rest)
we're almost done at this point as we get phantom dancer. its the last piece of the core and its awesome. with the attack speed, crit and movement you should b able 2 crazy kill everything.
the last item is up to you but i have some suggestions:
Last Whisper, Black Cleaver, Abyssal Scepter, Force of Nature, Guardian Angel, Madred's Bloodrazor, Nashor's Tooth, Tiamat, Wit's End, Yomuu's Ghostblade. All depends on your situation (dont get items with health *slap*).
