Threats to Draven with this build
|Ezreal||He can't do anything to you. You out trade him with no problem.|
Hello, and welcome! to my guide on Draven, The Glorious Executioner. Draven is my personal favorite ADC in the game and someone that is my go to pick even is some bad situations(not in ranked of course) just from the sheer enjoyment I get from playing him.
Pros / Cons
+Get Rich Quick
+Highest Potential Damage
-Not Very Mobile
-Needs a lot of protection
-Catching Axes can lead to Death/Bad Positioning
Pretty straight forward rune page. Flat yellows, blues, and reds. The variation on the runes can come in the form of the quints. I personally prefer to use life steal quints when I play Draven as you will be a high priority target for everyone on the other team, whether its in the form of the jungler, mid laner or in lane harass. Thats why I take the 3 life steal quints, because those plus the 3% life steal you will get from your dorans blade basically gives you a free vamp scepter to start the game and since you deal such great starting dmg you will have plenty of sustain to survive the attention that you will be getting from the other team.
When it comes to wether or not to build to build Statikk Shiv or Phantom Dancer I strongly suggest going with PD for two reasons. 1)The passive allows you to move through units making sure that you can juggle your axes in team fights without having to worry about being interrupted by teammates or stray minions wandering through the battle. 2)You're Draven. You don't need wave clear because you will be one shotting every minion you encounter.
When deciding what boots you want to go with take into consideration that too much attack speed can cause some interference with flowing with your axe catches. Honestly your attack speed item will provide you with enough attack speed to dish out some absurd dmg onto your enemies(Boot Enchatments-If they're in your base then take homeguards but if you're out in team fights and putting pressure on them then take Alacrity for the extra movement speed incase you're put out of position from your axes)
Items 2-The Situationals
Scimitar if you're facing some unholy CC or CC that keeps causing you to get picked even in the back line(see Leona, Amumu, and Annie)
Pick up BotrK in a situation where LW isn't going to cut it. The team is just overloaded with tanks or health stacking enemies (Zac & Malphite style champs)
Youmuus meshes well with Draven and this build type and works well if you chose to get Merc treads for your boots because of the active and the armor pen takes down those heavily armored targets like Shen and Malphite.
Maw is really just there for whenever you're facing an AP assassin type like LB or Diana or a double or possibly triple AP team.
Triforce, the item that will allow you to do so much dmg with the sheen procs that it will bring a tear to your eye. If you're building triforce then you're building it in place of your defensive item. In a situation where your frontline is doing a great job of protecting you and you can go around just 2 shooting people
Well thats it for now everyone! Hope you all enjoy my guide to Draven and find as much enjoyment in playing him as I do. Feel free to comment your opinions on my build, what you would change, what you like, and what you think is wrong. Thanks for taking the time to read this and leave a thumbs up if you think its worthy. Thanks again
P.S.-This is my first build guide so let me know wheat I need to change to what I need to do to fix/improve any future guides. Thank you.
