Evelynn is one of the oldest champions in League of Legends and one of the most over powered champions before she got a nerf. The nerfed Evelynn was a great champion for dominion as AP, but now she has a awesome power and new skills to recover her lost tittle.

[Passive] - Shadow Walk
Evelynn fades away into the shadows. She can only be seen by nearby enemy Champions or true sight
While in stealth, Evelynn regenerates 1% of her max Mana every second
Casting spells, taking damage, or dealing damage unstealths Evelynn for 8 seconds

[Q] - Hate Spike
19/23/27/31/35 Mana, 1.5 second Cooldown
Evelynn fires a line of spikes through a nearby enemy, dealing 40/60/80/100/120 (+0.45 Ability Power) (+0.4 bonus Attack Damage) magic damage to all enemies in its path
Hate Spike prioritizes what Evelynn has attacked recently

[W] - Dark Frenzy
No Cost, 20 second Cooldown
Passive: Evelynn's spell hits on enemy Champions grant her 4/8/12/16/20 Movement Speed for 3 seconds (effect stacks up to 4 times)
Active: Evelynn removes all slows affecting her and gains
30/40/50/60/70% Movement Speed for 3 seconds
Champion kills and assists refresh Dark Frenzy's cooldown

[E] - Ravage
50/55/60/65/70 Mana, 9 second Cooldown
Evelynn slashes a target enemy 2 times, dealing 35/60/85/110/135 (+0.5 Ability Power) (+0.4 bonus Attack Damage) magic damage with each strike
Evelynn then gains
60/75/90/105/120% Attack Speed for 3 seconds

[R] - Agony's Embrace
100 Mana, 150/120/90 second Cooldown
Evelynn impales all enemies in the targeted area, dealing 15/20/25% (+1% per 50 Ability Power) of their maximum Health in magic damage and slowing their Movement Speed by 30/50/70% for 2 seconds
Evelynn siphons their pain, gaining a
150/225/300 health shield for each enemy Champion hit which lasts up to 6 seconds

I always start at blue with Cloth Armor and Five Health Potions, you can gank bottom lane to force enemies use their flashes or ghost. Continue to wolves then you can do red and gank mid or top lane while you spam the Shadow Spikes. If you want to do a gank but enemy has the river warded you can get a Oracle Elixir to destroy the wards and mushrooms for future ganks. Using this build Evelynn is able to do solo Dragon if you have the Madred Bloorazors and soloBaron if you finished the build.

After you getMadred Razor's get a pair of boots and buildHeart of Gold to stack some extra gold.
Evelynn is a low cooldown in Hate Spikes (1.5 seconds), that's why build aSheen to do a great damage.
Finish ourMadred Bloodrazor's and you Evelynn will be invincible (1 vs 1), make the pair of boots intoBoots of Mobility to move more faster in lines or scape.Trinity Force is a great item for Evelynn because it makes her more faster to kill slow enemies while she stacks power using the Shadow Spikes.
Evelynn is squishy agaisn't the mages, that's why I get
Hexdrinker to block some damage.
Now our Evelynn does a insane damage but she losses too much HP in a fight, you can getBloodthister and stack it to do more damage.
Late gameHeart of Gold stacks too much gold, now you can buy aRaduin's Omen to fight any melee or ranged carry reducing their Attack Speed getting a chance to kill him.
At the end finish theMaw of Malmortius and you will have a great damage with some survivability.

Viable Items

You may don't like some items of this build like the Raduin's Omen or Maw of Malmorius because they no give you the enough survivability in team fight.

Raduin's Omen is a nice item for Evelynn because she is a Melee champion, this item gives her a nice survivability agaisn't AD and ADC enemies because it grants Armor and it has an active effect to reduce enemy Attack Speed.

Guardian Angel is another good item for any champion, granting you a nice Armor and Magic resist and a "extra life", if you have problems late game on a team fight the guardian angel is a nice option replacing Raduin's Omen.

Evelynn has a nice movement speed, but sometimes is hard to stay alive when enemy has a hard crowd control, you can replace the Maw of Malmorius for a Banshee Veil which is a nice item for Evelynn to avoid from spells likeAmumu's area of effect ultimate,the damage and stun of Cassiopeia's ultimate,Veigar's stun, etc.

Because I build Evelynn as Off Tank, I get Maw of Malmortius which gives you a nice shield and icreases your attack damage in a fight, it gives you a chance to run and save yourself from Ignites.

I like to get Bloodthister because it grants a nice Attack Damage and Life Steal making the Trinity Force more strong and recovering health points very fast.

You may have problems to catch your prey, Hextech Gunblade is a viable item for Evelynn if you replace our Bloodthister, you will lose some Attack Damage but this item grants you some Life Steal and Spell Vamp, which is nice because Evelynn is a "Hybrid" champion.

Summoner Spells

I always getFlash for survivability andSmite to jungle, if you play a laner Evelynn you can switch Smite and getIgnite orCleanse if they have a better crowd control.

In normal game I like to play AD Evelynn, so I put 21/9/0 masteries, gettingWeapon Expertise andExecutioner in Offensive. I get some Defensive masteries, gettingHardiness andBladed Armor for my jungle.
