Introduction

Hello there, my name is Ahlgreenz and let me get things straight from the start; I've been playing League of Legends for a very long time and I've finally decided to put up a guide with my favorite build for my favorite champion. This will probably not evolve into a major guide, as I doubt I have the patience to sit down and explain every bit of detail about how I play Draven, but this guied will serve rather as quick "Okay I just got Draven, how the hell am I gonna build this fella?" rather than "To become the world's best Draven player, I need to follow this guide step-by-step" -> I hope you get the picture.

Looks like it ended up being a somewhat thorough guide anyways :)

That's enough about me and I think I'll move on with a Draven quote; "Let's admire me for a bit."

Pros / Cons

Pros:

    - Has great early game damage output
    - Has great mobility which lets him chase efficiently
    - Global ultimate
    - Can use Spinning Axe tons of times without paying its mana cost
    - Is an effective harasser
    - Can last hit effectively due to Spinning Axe without diminishing his mana pool


Cons:
    - Hard to play as positioning on him is more crucial than any other AD Carry
    - Damage output will drop drastically if he gets CC'ed and drops his Spinning Axe
    - Keeping track of his Spinning Axes in teamfights can be difficult
    - Has no "real" eascape ability

How does Draven work?

Many people mistake Draven for a regular AD Carry, like Ashe and Graves, but what sets Draven apart is that his damage ability isn't some ranged AoE spam like Graves' Buckshot or Ashe's volley, but his Spinning Axe which applies to his basic attacks which he can catch again. When ever he catches a Spinning Axe, his Bloodrush ability is immediately refreshed, which will allow him to have Sheen's effect every 2 seconds -> this makes for extremely potent damage output. If you go with my Rune Setup as well as Mastery Page, you will be able to hit the enemy for 125 physical damage (not counting the enemy's armor) with every basic attack when your Spinning Axe is applied: 63 AD + 28 Spinning Axe + 34 bleed effect from Wicked Blades (passive) -> combine this with a Janna shielding you, thus granting you more AD and you will pretty much be able to 4 hit the enemy AD Carry through harass, if they don't get healed that is.
