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.
Corki is probably one of my favourite champions to play. He has awesome abilities to nuke down almost every opponent, Plus he has an awesome escape ability.
Early game is by far the hardest for Corki, this is why i go mid. Early game is all about last hitting minions and harassing the enemy "midder". i usually have around 150-200 minion kills at the 20 minute mark. At level 6 when you have your ultimate you can go kill the wraiths when your lane is pushed to enemy turret.
Here is a picture of some of my games, and the stats i've gotten.
I start of with a cloth armor, 2 health potions and 2 mana potions.x2x2
And as soon as i have 700 gold i recall back to buy Madreds Razor'sthen i use teleport to get quickly back into lane
As the next item i buy Wriggles Lantern
this is probably the toughest time for you, because after you get to level 6 and get some attack speed from items you will totally own mid lane against almost every champion.
I start of buying a cloth armor and 2 HP and MP pots, this is great for taking the mid lane.
When i got enough money i recall back and buy wigglers lantern for easy farm on minions. i then buy berserker Grieves for the extra attack speed and movement bonus. The Black Cleaver is awesome for tearing up the armor the enemy has. And Infinity edge and Bloodthirster is just for the bonus dmg and lifesteal that will make your Corki so op that the enemy team will cry!
If a game takes so long that i get full items, i sell the Wriggles lantern and buy a second Bloodthrister or a trinity force.
Great damage out put late game.
Good farming abilities.
Valkyrie is a great ability for escaping.
But mostly he's fun and epic :D
Very squishy early game
Requires alot of farming early game.
Goes easily down if stunned.
Hextech Shrapnel Shells

I take Teleport and ghost, Teleport for getting fast back in lane, not giving the enemy more exp. and ghost for situations where you need a quick escape and valkyrie isn't just enough, or for when chasing.
Like i said in the in the introduction, farming is really important for Corki. I've been killed in mid an still over leveling just by getting alot of minion kills!
Madreds Razor's is a great item to start of with just because it improves your farming.
