This build can beused for champions as Ryze and Ezrael to, but i would strongly recomment u change the items then, because the item build is "only" for cassiopeia, but it is ur choice. I play a lot off ryze to, but i do not use the same Item Build.

Item tip: Iff u are against magic resistbuying enemies, i highly recomment u buy a void staff instead of Rod of Ages. Lich Bane is only for making Archangel Staff more efficiant, but iff ur Tear of Godess allready have stored enough Mana, it is more or less useless, then i suggest u buy Mejai's Soulstealer(only iff u have a plusscore,) or Frozen Heart. Hope u enjoy my build :)
Game tip: In game(3vs3) before entering down bush for first blood, use Noxius Blast to check for early enemies, iff u hit an enemy notice, that there comes a litle green icon over ur skills. Before using Twin Fang, use an poison on enemy champion, iff u hit poisoned enemy champion with twin fang, the cooldown on Twin Fang will allmost disapear, and make it useable right after use. Escaping enemies is hard, with this build, but iff u use Miasma in the escape, u can slow the enemies, and hitting enemies with Noxius Blast increases your run speed with 15%. Never initiate an Team fight, u are an ranged caster, so u do not have that moutch HP , even though Rylais and RoA is HP giving items, U DO NOT HAVE ENOUGH HP. When playing 5vs5 use Teleport instead of flash.
Petrifying Gaze(Ultimate): Be carefull using ur ultimate. The range off ur stun(ultimate) is not very big, when using, be sure that u have as many enemies in range possible. Petrifying Gaze is an good escape way, because even iff enemies is hit and not stunned, they are sloved a big amount of speed.

Please comment and try the build and strategies before voting. Thank you.

I have used this build in both ranked and non-ranked games. In non-ranked games, I will typically completely dominate games and own from start to finish. In ranked games, the competition goes up significantly, but your ability to dominate can remain just as high if played correctly. Also, this guide isn't just theory or talk, I use this build and have significant success with it. My gameplay have gone a lot better since i started using this build. But Cassiopeia isn't very "old," but she is easy to play with the right build. I bought Cassiopeia the day she went on the market, and i have used the time to get to know her, a tip is, u play practice game with her first, so u get to know her, and be comfortable with her before u play normal or even Ranked game with her.
For those who don't know certain terms.

DPS = Damage per Second, referring basically to champions who lower your health in a frenzy.
CC = Crowd Control, referring to stuns, slows, taunts, etc.
Carry = Champions who can basically solo an enemy team late game, usually only good when fed.
Tank = Basically a meat shield champion, one who can take hits.
Blue Pill = Means "recall".
Gank = Gang Kill, basically uneven team fights.
Jungling = Instead of fighting minions in a lane, going into the areas with the lizards/golems/wolves and fighting them.
MIA = Missing In Action. If you don't know where an enemy is tell your teammates it could potentially save them from a gank.
Auto Attacks = Your normal "right-click" attack.
Last hit = Hitting a minion when it is on low health instead of constantly attacking it. This grants you the gold and also lowers the amount of harassment enemies can do to you.
AS = Attack speed.
AP = Ability power.
AD = You guessed it! Attack damage.
ArP = Armour penetration
HP5 and MP5 = Health per 5 seconds and Mana per 5 seconds respectively.
ignite and flash will be a good help. With flash you can run from ganks or, flash fast to stun your opponnent without him know.
Ignite: It is great when that person has that little scrape of health left, that scrape is so annoying

Flash: Is a very good thing to have, usefull for escaping ganks, suprise attack, cath up with escaping enemies, and ks friendly champions for fun xD

Teleport: I would put this instead of your flash if you have a teemo or something on your team and are playing 5vs5. Tell him to lay a shroom behind the enemy and teleport there, free kills.

What NOT go get:

Heal: You should never be in the position to need it, especially with zonya's

Ghost: Well, if you can use MIASMA to slow them why ghost? just use it on your way out.. if it is a yi, well ghost wont save you anyway, best chance is to have the Killer Instincts, Miasma/Noxious Blast and Twin Fang he should drop FAST
This is my first build, sorry for the wall of text but as my ideas surfaced so did more and more until what you see here happened. I will be happy to answer to comments. Please don't down-rate without leaving a comment. Remember this is my first build guide, and i have never tried it before, but i hope u like it, and give me good ratings ty :)
