Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
Draven's Position in Battle
First of all, I would like to say that Draven should not go mid in Summoner's Rift since he is late game and even though he is long ranged Champion he can be wiped out easily. Mostly I would recommend top, with a Champion that attracts the enemy because that way when you are both hitting him you are safe while damaging and in the end the team takes a kill without having harmed yourself. Also another reason for doing this would be to catch Spinning Axes all the time, when you are in a fight where you are not alone, and are not damaged, keep your distance let the spinning axe do its own jon and keep only chasing to catch it instead of chasing the enemy because if you do that, you lose your spinning axe which is very important.
Draven's Spinning Axes
Draven has the skill "Spinning Axe" which does very powerful Damage and bleeding. So, when the enemy has just taken Damage from a Spinning Axe and his health is something like 50 or less, you don't have to chase him and put yourself in danger as he will probably die from bleeding. When you don't know how to play Draven and have chosen him, in fights 2v1 like in the beginings in top or bottom, do simple Auto Attack and when the enemy is in low health then activate Spinning Axe to do the last blow if you make it. However, if you know how to play him, in fights 2v1 when you know the enemy is near and is going to dive, activate your first Spinning Axe and use it on Minions. When the enemy dives you and your partner, keep up with the first Axe and when he goes low health activate the second to guarantee your kill.
Draven's Ultimate: Whirling Death
Whirling Death is low on Damage but should not be underestimated. On the other side, it shouldn't be overestimated either. Because of the low Damage it can't do Multi Kills easily, however, it can easily get a kill out of nowhere. First of all, do never use it while you are fighting face to face. It is better to use it when the enemy is far enough that you can't reach him but he is in the same line with you. If you hit from a different line (for example something like 90 degrees) the 2nd Damage will probably be avoided. Also when the enemy is walking away with very low HP EXACTLY the opossite way you are (for example if you west he east, or if you south he north) do not hesitate to use your ulti. For example, once I used my ulti from my base to the other base and Teemo of the other team before entered the Based died from my Whirling Death. Another time, I was in my Base as there was a fight 2v2 in the jungle, both of my teammates died and both of the others survived, however a bit before the 2v2 battle ended I activated Whirling Death, Yi, from the other team who was left with very low Health was already doing recall and a bit before it ended, my Whirling Death attacked him and stopped his recall, left with no more than 20 HP the second hit gave me the kill. Also it is very good for stealing kills xD, since it has 2 hits. For example, once, I was in the top lane and Fiddle Sticks from my team was fighting 2 of the enemies in the bottom lane. I used my Whirling Death. Before it had arrived, the 1 of the enemies was already dead, however the first hit, made contact with the second enemy dealing a little Damage and even with the second he would have stayed alive. However, Fiddle Sticks was still hitting the second enemy and when he lowered his HP to barely nothing the second hit blows the kill and I get to make a cool ks
When the opponent is very low on Health and is running away from you towards the turret, he thinks he is safe. However u must still keep walking towards the turret, that will make him run even further, that's when you have to flash, activate Blood Rush, kill him quickly and leave from the bushes with 2-3 hits from the turret MOSTLY.
