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 build I find most usefull for all around play. I can jungle, support, and most importantly KILL.Try it out a few times and see what you think about it. Nocturne
For me I think Attack Speed and Armor Penetration are the most important for Nocturne. More speed = more hits and more armor penetration = more dmg delt I think. If you combine the two it = more hits for more damage.

When lurking in the shadows I like to use Duskbringer-> Unspeakable Horror-> Shroud of Darkness-> Duskbringer and so on.........
Duskbringer is great for addition damage. You can use it to catch up to a fleeing enemy or escape when your low on health.
Unspeakable Horror is very usefull in group battles. Trick is to use it when an team member is killing an enemy thats trying to get away. Same goes when Nocturne is soloing. Most enemys will run when you use Duskbringer. Thats why I use Unspeakable Horror second to keep them in range.
Shroud of Darkness is best used after you cast Unspeakable Horror (right before fear runs out) to cancel an enemy attack.
Paranoia This is the best skill ever. Most people think the main purpose of this skill is for the second part of the skill which dashes towards a selected enemy. Dont get me wrong I love the dash but have you ever sat back and just used Paranoia for its main purpose? The main reson for Paranoia is to put the fear of your awsomeness into your enemys heads. Try this it will make you fall out of your chair laughing (atleast it does for me). Sit away (or near) but outa sight so no enemy has any idea where your at and cast Paranoia while watching the battle or the enemy trying to push a lane. Instantly they all run for there lives. The first time I did this I told my team ahead of time. Every enemy had Ghost and used it at the same time while runing in every direction. It was very funny for me but the enemy didn't find it amusing.
I like to use Heal because well Nocturne is squishy. Also my second choice would be Ignite for those characters who like to Flash or run when there about to die. Works great on Undying Rage. Trick is to use it after a couple seconds then just run away i almost always get the kill.
I've come to love this build. Keep in mind to change items if needed to better help your team. Some times you may need more defense and other times maybe just a little bit more movement speed would help better. Either way the most important thing to remember is if your not having fun your not gonna help your team out. Keep a good attitude during games and it'll all work out in the end. This is my first build guide and really first champion. Lemme know what u think and any advice is always welcome.
