0: Why would you play Draven?

Draven is a really fun champion to play with, he specialises on dealing high, continual damage on single targets and cleaning up a team fight
He is pretty squishy, and some build life items on him, but not me ;)
It takes some skill to catch all the Spinning Axe(s) and timing ults and Blood Rush(s) right, but once you get a hang of it its SO much more fun to play him!
He is not like Darius, who is like my friend describes him, "Run up and spam Q W R, and occasionnaly E, to get Penta..", I.E he is a champion it takes almost no skill to control, where Draven can sometimes take a little training to master.

1: Why would you choose this build?

For starters, this is not a Darius build. It's a build for Draven, the Glorious Executioner.
The are several advantages and disadvantages with this build, as i list below
+ The build gives a good advantage both late and early game
+ The high attack speed allows more basic attacks between Spinning Axe
+ The basic attacks between Spinning Axe deals more damage through crit
- You are very squishy, I.E you die alot if you dont escape a gank properly
- In early game, you wont do too much damage, and pure damage champions like Graves can outwit you easily

There are no more advantages or disadvantages with this build that i can find, but ┬┤feel free to give me feedback about it

2: Ranked, how does it work?

I have not yet tested Ranked with him yet, but when i do i will Edit the post!

3: How is he in teams?

Draven has very little CC, so laning with some champion with stuns, snares or slowns is the best way to get a good start with Draven. Late game, its smart to have champions in your team who can take damage for Draven, or keeping him out of trouble. For example Morgana(Spell Shield), Shen(Taunt) and Galio(Massive Taunt, Shield, Slow, and movement speed).
I ussually prefer to lane with a galio, as he is(in my oppinion) optimal for Draven. I also prefer have a Morgana, and possibly Kennen in the team. Much like Garen and Lux, Draven and Darius work well together, so having a Darius on the team isnt so bad. As a jungler for the team, I'd coose Warwick or Lee Sin.

4: Farming

Its quite easy to farm with Draven, once you get the hang on Spinning Axe, as you can easily last hit minions at around 1/3 hp, and land a basic attack at minions with 1/5 hp before you catch the Axe. This part will be updated.

5: Conclusion

Draven is my favourite champion to play, and i hope to get some nice feedback so i can optimize this guide as much as i can. BTW this is my first post so i would not apriciate nnegative feedback.
