Threats to Draven with this build
|Shen||Dodge his E while you trade and you'll probably win the Trade.|
Hi! I'm Marcelo "DoViso" Silva, I'm a League of Legends Amateur player and currently I'm Diamond V.
At the moment, I play in one of the best League of Legends Academies in Portugal, a Multigaming called FOR THE WIN ESPORTS.
My main role is AD Carry and my favourite Champions are Kalista, Vayne and Draven.
I decided to write this guide because, on the last few days, so many people started to asking me how to play, what to build and which are the best matchups with Draven, so I decided to write this little guide to share with those people and of course with you all. :)
P.S.: If you want to show me some support, please like my facebook page here.
[*] Farming is easy because of your Q - Spinning Axe;
[*] Strong Early, Mid and Late Game;
[*] Awesome Kiter and Chaser;
[*] Excellent 1v1 Champion.
[*] Very Weak against CC Users;
[*] Pretty hard to mastery him;
[*] No mobility at all;
[*] Hard CC shuts Draven down pretty easy.
Laning Phase: Trades
Trading with Draven is pretty easy because of his Q - Spinning Axe. With it you can poke them pretty easy dealing a big damage. Farming your passive is pretty important too so try not to drop your axes on the ground ;).
Every time an enemy gets closer to you or your minions hit them with your axes until he/she goes back. Draven is pretty easy to get fed so theenemy jungler will probably camp your lane, make sure your lane is well warded before pushing hard. If you get ganked always try to kite them with your Q+W+Q+W...
Make sure that in your first recall you have atleast 1550 Gold to bring your B.F. Sword and start your snowballing work :D.
Always try to buy a B.F. Sword. If you have enough money to bring Boots of Speed with you it would be great too because of Draven's weak mobility.
Early > Mid Game
After building up your Infinity Edge and your Berserker's Greaves, you'll need to keep your Critical Strike work, you should build a Youmuu's Ghostblade, that'll give you everything you need, damage, crits, armor penetration, attack speed and movement speed.
Mid > Late Game
Now that you have a bit of AS and a bunch of AD, it's time to make your team proud and start to make the enemy team cry >:D. Build your Zeal and your Vampiric Scepter and you'll be almost invincible in a 1v1/2 situation.
LATE GAME MONSTER
Draven is one of the best Late Game AD Carries because of his Q - Spinning Axes, but this is not enough, you'll need to finish some core items! >:D
Get your Phantom Dancer and your Bloodthirster ASAP and start to build your defensive item, believe me, you'll need it!
WARNING: As you know, Draven is very weak when we talk about Crowd Control, and now you ask me - "What are the best items against Crowd Control?" - The answer is: Banshee's Veil/Mercurial Scimitar!
When you're playing as Draven, team fighting is not that easy, because you need to have a pretty good positioning skill and a bit of protection from your team aswell.
Draven it's like Katarina, you need to wait the CC and then you can go in and Execute them. With his Q - Spinning Axes, Draven is very good getting his enemies out of position by using his E - Stand Aside and then execute them.
As I said before Draven is pretty like Katarina when we talk about team fighting. Draven needs to wait for the enemie's hard CC and then, he can go in and kill everyone spreading his damage basic attacking with his double Q - Spinning Axes and execute them with his R - Whirling Death.
NOW YOU ARE READY TO EXECUTE SOME MOFOS AND WIN THE GAME!
GL&HF in the Fields of Justice :D
