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.
Why this build? Why does it work?
This build offers above average Marksmen Attack Damage, high to insane lifesteal, and a 1200+ critical strike that will quickly leave your enemies lifeless. It's important to purchase 2x - 3x B.F. Sword, once you have Infinity Edge and Avarice Blade. Do not build multiple Critical Chance items. You'll be wasting space and have a redundant and ineffective item that adds Zero value to your champion's power. So, you'll need kicked in the balls if you build both Phantom Dancer and Statikk Shiv.
I Recommend and Prefer to use the Statikk Shiv as my Critical Chance item because of Avarice Blade. This item not only gives three gold every 10 seconds, but also 2 additional gold is tacked onto each unit killed. Adding this with Ashe's Passive (3 additional gold earned for killing a unit or destroying a structure) Allows Ashe to easily create a substantial gold lead over any enemy, complete legendary item's quicker, and unleash hell on your opponents, who are always playing catch up.
I have won many rank games with this build, including 10 straight matches. I have always been an ADC heavy player, but I had been using Miss Fortune as my main through most of my league time. It was only recently I discovered this build/build order, and witnesses over and over its devastation. Sense using this build information, my KDA has went up six-fold, and won dozens of games while only suffering a mere two losses. I am not gold or diamond, so discount this information if you want. It's whatever to me :D
Build Order and Strategies behind it
Beginning Match Play:
Starter Purchases: Duran's Blade, Ward, and HP Pot
Skills: Unlock Ashe's E-Skill (Hawkshot/Passive) to begin earning three additional gold per unit killed and structure destroyed.
If you are killed or need to base early, purchase extra potions and Boots of Speed to get Ashe back out to her minions and turret as quickly as possible.
First Return Purchases:
B.F. Sword (1550 CS) + Pickaxe (875 CS) + Cloak of Agility (725 CS) = Infinity Edge (3800 CS)
* Do NOT base/first return without AT LEAST 1550 CS. Always go B.F. Sword First!
* Build Infinity Edge from the above items to further increase your critical strike. When you hit them with this, they will know it!
Purchase Avarice Blade immediately after completing Infinity Edge and quickly continue farming minions.
Next Purchase B.F. Swords (no more than three)
With the B.F. Swords purchased, you can chose to complete your Statikk Shiv now, or continue with Avarice Blade and build out your three new B.F. Swords.
B.F. Sword Build Out Order
Mercurial Scimitar (Can Substitute with BoRK for additional lifesteal at the cost of magic resistance. In addition, Guardian Angel can be purchased instead of this item if more physical defense is needed.
Finally Complete Statikk Shiv.
