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.
I go with the 21-0-9 mastery. I have seen 21 in defense and 21 in utility, but they are not needed. Evelynn is an assassin, she goes in, kills and gets out. She does not need defense, because if she stays in a fight long enough to get punched around, your doing it wrong. She goes in, assassinates, and gtfo. She should barely get hit. 21 in offense works great for AD Evelynn. the best choice is putting 21 in offence.
Smite- This is the most underestimated skill for non-junglers. But this skill is perfect for Evelynn!!! Evelynn isn't very good at killing blue,but she needs it CONSTANTLY. So Smite helps Evelynn get that blue she needs, ASAP!!! Other than that, she uses Smite to kill the big tanky minions in every 3rd minion wave. It will give you good amount of gold.
Flash- Now this spell is great for several reasons. The most obvious being it can chase a running opponent really fast. Just flash, stun and start killing. But the real gold, is it's ability to tower dive. Look at the bottom two situations
With Flash: Some innocent low HP champion on the other team is tower hugging. They can't see the Evelynn, and Evelynn flashes in. To him, she suddenly pops in front of him, he gets stunned and dies to you. YAY FOR FLASH!!!
Without Flash: Some innocent low HP champion on the other team is tower hugging. They can't see Evelynn, and Evelynn runs in. They see Evelynn coming to him, he stuns/slow you and you get killed by turret. "NOOOO!!! WHY DIDN'T I GET FLASH!!!" Quote the bad Evelynn.
As you can see, Flash is really good for Evelynn, to give you that sign of surprise even if your tower diving.
Ignite: This is also a good spell, but it's problem is that it is almost useless late game. Therefore try get fed as much as you can early game.
Cleanse this is great for escaping use your ultimate and if you get stunned / slowed you can just cleanse out of it.
But in the end i go for cleanse and ignite.
So in most Evelynn builds, you normaly max out hate spike. But there is a problem with Hate spike doesn't have enough damage to gank early game
Mejai's Soulstealer- This item should be gotten for most AP characters, for only 1200, you can get an item that will stack up to 180 AP. That is awesome!!! Also, if you play Evelynn smartly, you won't die alot, keeping your stacks. Buy this second.
Boots of Mobility- So, before I believed we don't need this. Sadly, Eve's ulti is nerfed and now it doesn't work as nicely. So now what? We go back to the original plan and use boots of mobility.
Sheen-So why get this and not lich bane? Because before you get your Rabadons, your AP will be very low. Getting Lichbane would actually make your damage worse than Sheen. So get your s
Sheen first, for a bit of burst, and wait until you get Rabadons for that awesome Lichbane-Ravage combo.
Rabadon's Deathcap- EXTREME AP FTW!!! Yes this item is unarguably the best pure AP item in the game. By its self it gives close to 200 AP!!! With this item, it will push your AP to over 400-500! Try it, you will be amazed.
LichBane- After Rabadons, it is time for your insane damage addition. Since you have a spam-able Q, this item gives you an Attack Damage addition per 3 seconds. By end game, you would have over 400-500 AP, which would conclude to 400-500 AD. HOW AWESOME IS THAT!!!
Okay, you started your game, your at the summoner platform and you disconnect. So you finally fix your internet, get back into the game, and everyone is level 12. What do you do, you rage quit or troll. JK, don't do that,and don't buy that ****py cheap internet.
Now, for a normal scenario. You started the game,grab a Meki's Pendant, 2 HP Pot and put your first point into your Q(Hate Spike). Go to the lane with the two golems, and wait until they spawn. Remember to tell your teammates to not help you with the 2 golems, because that way you won't get all the exp. When the two golems pop up, smite one, and start killing them while spamming Q. Remember to take the HP Pot when you start getting hurt. Use both, 1 after another.
You should be level 2 after those two golems, so put that point in stealth, use it, and make your way to the lane. Check the bushes, and see if there is anyone in there. If there is just one, tell your partner and gank him. It will probably get you first blood. If there isn't anyone in the bushes, start last hitting minions while saving your mana. Tell you partner to constantly harass the other team, because Evelynn doesn't have any good harassing skills. When you see someone with less than 30% HP, pretend to go gank mid, stealth and stun him, then gank him with your partner. He will drop to the floor and cry like a little baby, or he dies, which is better for making money. When you reach level 6, recall and buy Chalice of Harmony and Mejais/mobility boots(your choice) if you can (Depends on First blood and how you're doing).
Now is your time to shine. After recalling, go to a lane with a possible gank. If there isn't any, go get blue and then go to a lane(Mid is always a good option because there is usually a squishy and your team carry in mid). Even if there isn't any good ganks in that lane, with your stun and your team, you should be able to get a kill. From this point on, remember to always have map awareness and gank whenever possible. If your not ganking, your taking down a tower or jungling. Never do nothing because you're VERY under-leveled, since you change from lane to lane a lot. When you can, go back to buy Mejai/Mobility Boots and after that, work on your sheen(it isn't hard, so cheap).After that rush Rabadons and watch your AP skyrocket. Soon, all 3 front towers on their side should be down, if they're not, help that lane to push it down. From this point on, there will be a lot of gang fights and your job is to pop out randomly to finish off a kill or stun someone so your team can gank them. Remember, whenever someone over extend even a TINY bit. You can stun him, and most of the time kill him. Remember, one step for them, is one kill for you. If you ever see someone run back through their turret with almost no HP, go stealth and go through the jungle. Most likely, he will be somewhere behind their standing turret trying to recall. Flash in and kill him, you can get a lot of kills this way. But don't take my word for it, judge the situation and be sure you can kill him, if not, don't be greedy and forget about it. Greed is never, especially the mastery, 1 gold per 10 seconds... really?
Your about level 15-16 and the game is heating up.Quickly build yourself a Lichbane, and you will see some amazing damage. You will be so good, you will kill champions in other games. HEXAKILL!!! With it, you can kill squishies before the stun wears off. Ravage,plus Lichbane damage(500-700), plus a couple of hate spike, equals dead Ashe. After that you get a choice now for an item, depending on the other team. Either go guinsoo's for backdooring/tower killing opportunities, or a nashars for extra CDR and damage.During this period, your opponents are probably always in groups, desperately trying to push/protect. Your job is to go and kill their carry/squishy/running away Champion/Ashe (It's always Ashe). So, make your way behind their team, yes this is the problem with so many Evelynns. They behave like a Tryndamere and run in at the team from the front. CHARGE!!! LEROY JENKINS!!!! But if the other team starts running away, you have to chase them and you will usually not catch them. So when you see your team and theirs in a stalemate in mid (it usually is mid...) go across the jungle, or if they don't have an oracle, go across their team to the back. If you ever see their team get even a tiny bit away from their carry/squishy, Pop out and kill him with Ravage and Q Spamming skills. Then quickly run away to the opposite direction of their team and go stealth. After that get back into the fight for more assassination. If you ever see your team get into a big all out fight with the other team. Don't rambo in like everyone else. People like Amumu and Master Yi are supposed to be caught up in the fight, but you're not. Remember, your not a migit and you don't have night vision goggles, your not suppose to be in a fight. So keep a cool mind, and whenever you see someone almost dead or running, go up to them, unleash your combo and kill. FINISH THEM!!! Then, quickly get out again. This is the way of Evelynn, kill and disappear. When you see their team's mage/carry is just slightly behind the other members, be my guest and go in and punish him for being so slow. You can kill him and run before his team can do anything. But if you ever believe you can kill them all, without worry of hp, be my guest and start killing and killing and killing... But remember, this will only work if your pwning with almost, or already max stack Mejai. If that happens, you can probably kill one, gain hp, and keep on killing. I played a 4v2, and came out with full HP and I got a Quadra kill. ZOMG!!! But don't do that unless you're very sure you can kill them all. If they have a Ryze or Nunu, or any mass nukers... don't even try this, you can probably take out 2 before dying.
Quick Note: If you just got extremely hurt in a fight and probably should run, don't recall yet, analyze the battle. If someone is almost dead, go back in with stealth and finish him with ravage, that way you don't have to go back, and you can keep on killing and helping out your team.
yes, aren't they just the most annoying thing in the world? Luckily, that annoying item costs a lot. If they keep on dying after getting one, they will stop. So what do you do?
If a squishy has an oracle, just wait until he's isolated, flash in and stun and kill. They will never expect you because no one with oracle ever expects you to walk right up to them. They feel like oracle can single handedly make a stealth champion useless... Yea... good luck with that.
If a tank has a oracle, you probably can't kill him. Do not show yourself on the map, or go through the jungle(Because there is a high chance you will meet him). Only when you see him on the map, can you start pushing or assassinating. If the guy is on top lane, go from mid to bot, killing or pushing. Repeat this, until your team gets the chance to kill that annoying guy.
If it is ganking time, and someone in their team has an oracle. Only step into the battle(preferably flash in) if you see that the oracle person is almost dead, or can be killed by you. Or if the battle is heating up, just go in, their too concentrated on the mess.
Well, here is my guide on how to play Evelynn. I hope you enjoyed it and it helps you in your gaming with one of my favorite champions. Good luck and have fun playing LOL.
