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.
Ashe in my opinion is one of the best AD carries in the game. You bring great CC and DPS to every team fight. And if fed, you can carry your team to an easy victory. Ashe was the very first champion I ever played, and I instantly fell in love with her. She is easy to use and is completely viable in ranked matches. With this guide, I hope that I can share my knowledge of Ashe's mechanics and gameplay.
Frost Shot : Frost Shot is one of Ashe's most important skills. It applies a slow to ALL of your autoattacks and your vollies. Only use this on enemy champions and maybe on a super minion if you are being pushed very hard. I max this skill second.
Volley : Whenever I play Ashe, I level up Volley as my first skill. Volley is Ashe's most important skill and is designed to be spammable at later levels. If you ever find yourself being chased or focused in a teamfight, run and keep throwing your Volley backwards. This slows your pursuers and allows you to get away more easily. During your laning phase, try not to spam it as much, as it drains mana like crazy. Volley has more range than your autoattacks and does more damage, so use this to your advantage. At later levels, volley helps you clear minion waves in a second. I max this skill first.
Hawkshot : Hawkshot is another important Ashe skill. This skill allows her to scout areas without actually going there and gives extra gold per kill. Always fire Hawkshot past the place you really want to see. Since the arrow is overhead, it reveals all bushes it passes over; if you know an enemy Garen is camping in a bush, fire directly into it, as it exposes the area for a little longer. You should be spamming this in lane, as it is free and gives you a great edge. I max this skill last.
Enchanted Crystal Arrow : Enchanted Crystal Arrow makes Ashe viable as an AD carry. It scales off of AP, but it doesn't really matter. This skill should not be used as a last hit to KS your teammate; rather, it should be used to initiate a fight and stun the enemy. Remember, the farther you are, the longer it stuns! It also deals AOE damage and applies a slow to surrounding enemies. Use this skill during your laning phase to help give other lanes an advantage. Remember that the arrow takes time to travel, so try to lead your shot. A lot of people try hiding in bushes, so if an enemy is at 1 hp, fire into a nearby bush in hopes of getting them while they recall. I level this up whenever I can.
