The thing is you can't remove the sustain masteries they're required to get to pick the later feats in the mastery tree. Warlord gives 15 AD at the late game with full build so it's not worth it. % damage increase is better.

Warlord seems too good a mastery to pass up, I would allocate two points to it from the sustain masteries.

Enjoyed reading through this guide. I really needed a champ to counter Tristana when picked and this one is constantly updated to fit the current builds. I'm just starting to learn Corki and this guide is helping me a lot! Thanks Joxuu :)

@Sadane: AD runes are much better for early game (for last hitting as example), maxing Valkyrie second for 3 second CDR is not worth it. Like you shouldn't get caught in such a short time twice in the bot lane. Maxing E for wave clear and damage is much more efficient.

Phosphorus bomb does give sight of enemies that are hit by it actually. Then the black cleaver vs last whisper. Last whisper is much more cheaper and gives instantly the 40%.

I used to run the utility masteries too but I found defensive masteries more useful within time. (I'll get the Frenzy mastery icon fixed within next update)

Thank you for your reply.


@NommyPancake: Corki isn't considered top tier as current meta is all about hyper carries but the thing is you can get trough a lot with Corki. I'd se he is at least decent to doing great against current meta picks. You also have ranged poke and great escape so I would say it's good back-up champion if you like him.

I think soloQ games tend to end around mid game most of the time where Corki has good power spike. You can't compete with hyper carries late game but early-mid game is quite good.

Heelow Joxuu ^_^

Me have some question about Corki OwO

For someone who don't main ADC, do you think Corki is a good champ to learn as backup role? :3


Meh most played champions are Singed and Heimerdinger for the moment :3

Ok, lets begin. Why nothing about mixed penetration runes? Also maxing valkyrie last lowers your mobility too much, 26 seconds cd to 14 at mid game makes difference. Gatling not usefull enough at midgame to loose mobility. Next. Phosphorus bomb doesnt reveal steath - Vayne and Twitch still pain. Also synergy of Gatling and Last Wisper vs tanks sux, cleaver will give you more. Last Wisper will ignore 40% of armor left from Gatling while cleaver will stack with it very good and give better stats. Also about building BotrK, you should try essence reaver, works like charm when you need mana, also there is not enough CDR items for adc. Btw i prefer using utility tree vs defence. Mana regen, movespeed and summoners spells cd is my choice. Ty for your attention and sorry for my bad english. P.S. Why you using Volibear frenzy spell at offencive masteries paragraph?

[-]
Joxuu (313) | July 29, 2014 12:35am
Sorry for late reply.

Botrk gives mobility and does well against heavy front line.
BT is good against assassins like Zed so you get the extra shield.

[-]
Wasabii | July 26, 2014 3:34pm
Ah, makes sense.
Also, I've read in some places that BORK isn't as good as BT on Corki, since he benefits more from AD rather than from AS.
What should I buy?
Currently, I'm using your build with Sorc shoes and bork, but what if I used BT and sorc shoes instead? Pros and cons of BT? BORK?

Joxuu (313) | July 1, 2014 11:02pm
I don't like the masteries myself either which is sort of alerting.
Created them as the season started and there are more viable choices I'm sure.

Was too busy to update them yesterday but I'll get to it.

I forgot to add the merc scim in cheat sheet but I do have it mentioned in items.

PsiGuard (862) | July 1, 2014 8:48pm
You should have trinkets in your cheatsheet, at least attached to the end game builds.

You might want to add Mercurial Scimitar as an option.

Spell Weaving and Blade Weaving are a lot more useful than Warlord . You're not even building many high AD items and Corki is a heavy caster.

Not sure if you need both end-game builds. They're almost the exact same and you made it pretty clear in the cheatsheet what the options are. I'd just list one with zerkers and banshee's since they're the most common. Dangerous Game is pretty strong too in my experience. If you want the first point in warlord since it's worth more you could drop Frenzy since your crit chance will be pretty low for most of the game.

Rest of cheat sheet looks fine. Too busy to read guide atm. :D

BT is generally taken over Botrk

[-]
Out Of Pancakes (30) | June 12, 2014 11:39am
The cheatsheet is confusing me : at first, you have that build with a 2nd item BotrK, and then, in your other final builds, no BotrK but BT. I understood that Trinity is the way-to-go first item but then : BT or BotrK ?

Long Sword with pots is worth in a hard lane match-up, like against lots of poke. There I could consider taking it over dorans as a starting item.

[-]
Out Of Pancakes (30) | November 26, 2013 11:11am
Since you took the Culinary Master mastery, which start do you consider the best : Long Sword 3 pots/biscuits or Doran's Blade 1 pot ?
Other than that, nice content and coding :)

Ty for review. I shall respond in order;



1. There is "Start" and following items for components of Trinity Force. Those are the starting items and then there's the Trinity Force. Then followed by items you want to pick.

2. I prefer it this way. The outcome is more clean.

3. Done

4. All of those work, but I think Nami is a tad squishy and Lulu lacks the heal. Taric is better in my opinion. All of those do work. Matter of preferication

5. It ruins the coding and I don't want to change the coding either as I like this one :/

6. Don't see nothing wrong here

7. I see no coding errors here - Last Whisper as second item for lane is really bad. Dominating build is when you go really nuts with the score and gain huge advantage. BoTRK is better item as it gives the sustain, has gap-closer and adds some damage and attack speed. So you benefit from it more early-on in the laning phase. Last Whisper is more late-game oriented against front line when they start buying armor.

8. Fix'd

9. Jumppu is nub, euw > eune

10. I thought of adding it, but they are really simple abilities and I explained the tips and tricks trough the images and adjusted it more with the explanation of the ability.

Danke



1. Starting items usually means the items you get when the game starts

2. k den.

3. - 6. k den

7. Last Whisper is super strong combined with Trinity Force atm.

8. k den.

9. so wut

10. ples, I can't watch images that don't have Nicolas Cage in them

Not after the incoming nerfs imo. Sorc shoes are more of situational.
Ill add them, but sorcs over berserker greaves is question mark.
Since its been recommended twice, ill try it and see what is the effect.

Thy sins
1. No anti-AD defense item option?
2. I have mixed feelings about your ability section. I can see why you would want to have the pictures on a slightly different position for each ability, but I myself would prefer to see it between borders and the pictures in the same position for each ability :P
3. The positioning chapter is much more "gameplay" than your gameplay chapter imo. If I were you, I would combine the chapters and use paragraph titles instead.

Thy blessing
1. Those are some sexy banners
1. C2V
2. Your build seems fine
3. So does your cheatsheet
4. All basics included
5. Good use of coding and structure

Joxuu (313) | September 18, 2013 9:36am
@Dragan a small mistake there, my bad. I fixed it :P

@Vynrtje It was meant to be a choice, like you could pick one to rush. I mentioned it more at the items section. I did re-arrenge it into Sheen > Phage > Zeal tough. I don't find Phage that good as #1 item, especially after it's getting nerfed. That's why Sheen. Zeal is recommended last.

I don't know what I would replace to get the Arcane Knowledge . I wouldn't like to give it anything on masteries as I don't find it very useful since you're more AD based and do very little magic damage in the end compared to the rest. Sorcerer's Shoes kinda fit in the same category in my opinion.
1
[-]
Vynertje (378) | September 18, 2013 8:57am
Overall okay-ish guide. I would consider taking Arcane Knowledge in masteries, especially if you're not going Infinity Edge second.

Also, I would never get Zeal first - I go for Phage in 90% of my games.

I would consider taking Sorcerer's Shoes as well, I personally like it to amplify mid-game damage because you don't really rely on auto-attacks that much.

EDIT: Lol at your spells images:

A really really great guide. I like how the guide looks how it is constructed. This guide deserves a lot of more views and likes.The item build is pretty standard but there is not much to change at his standard item build.Moreover I realyl appreciate that you wrote the Match Ups when and when not to pick Corki. The only weird thing I realized was the text at Missile Barrage I dont know if you made a mistake there but I seems very weird. Knocks Up,Slows what? Please tell if something is wrong there. The rest is really,really good. Nice job!
