Pros / Cons

+ Extremly good ganker
+ Strong early game damage output
+ Can easily withdraw from a battle and go B
+ Can slow enemies and chase

- Very squishy
- relies on farming and being fed
- Can be completely ignored in a teamfight if built wrong and/or is feeding!
-Needs all the mana she can get

+Can deal good damage to one target in teamfights
+Can chase
+Can kill every single escaper
+Can stack attack speed with Agony's Embrace, Surge

-No good farm
-Hard early game, good late game
-Item dependant
-Skills are almost useless except for Shadow Walk and Agony's Embrace


+Easy early game
+ Hate Spike can deal MASSIVE amounts of damage
+ Ravage deals a lot of damage as well


- Agony's Embrace is useless, as she doesn't have a madreds bloodrazor to deal Ap damage with Standard attacks
-Very low damage output lategame if the items are insufficient
-Cannot quickly burst someone down unless sufficient items
-Has to be with the team, fighting, and using Ravage to lower Magic Resist/Armor

This is pretty much a standard 21/0/9 build, with a tweak. In the utility you need the extra speed for running! Eve needs to be very fast to get going. Standard AD build, nothing to say here. of course this makes her damage output better.

Let me say, you want 2% added speed. Its awesome, trust me. Chase a little faster, it's worth it.
Standard ad, focusing On Speed again, not the mana.

Skill sequence

>> >> >>
Evelynn's skill sequence is hard to master, i think mine is pretty good.

Take Her Hate Spike first (for last hitting easier) and max it second, after You max Ravage. It is an extremely important initiator as you need to lower their Magic resist and Armor for a good damage output.
Take Her Agony's Embrace at level 6, 11, and 16. Max her Shadow Walk last, even though it gives slow debuff to the enemy. It steals all of your mana, anyways, and the duration doesn't matter that much (except if you want to gank)
Ability Sequence
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18
By the way, if you dont want to focus on farming, but damaging, your Abilites should be as follows:
Ability Sequence
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18
(This maxes Ravage first for added damage)

Summoner Spells

Here are my preffered summoner spells:
: Ghost is Obvious, as you can run or chase.

: For experienced players who want to be able to more chase, also depends on a tiny bit, which is: do you want to run away/catch up with Ghost or do you want to slow their speed and attack speed with Exhaust?

: The perfect skill for eve! Notice how her Agony's Embrace gives her Attack speed, and Surge does that BUT it adds AP!

: Good for beginners to move around the map.

- Why would you need to heal? You're squishy as DAMN so if you get attacked there is no point in heal, you're not the support.

- For beginners who can't control mana. Useless.

- WHY for the love of god would you ever want a slightly buffed minion last hitting for you? If you have to go this deep, may as well lose all of your elo and go down to 0.

Doran's items choice: Of course if you're going AD take a Doran's Blade, if you're AP a Doran's Ring and if you're worried about the squishiness take a Doran's Shield .
The Doran's Shield is very much my choice (thanks to Shiikan for convincing me ;) as it gives you hp and armor, as well as Hp-regeneration, just for some sustain.

Boot Choice: Well, there are 3 Viable boot choices I can think of. If you want to move very quick around the map, get Boots of Mobility
If you want to have cooldown reduction (especially for Hate Spike) get Ionian Boots of Lucidity
If you would ever want magic penetration, If they for example stack Magic resistance, Get Sorcerer's Shoes!
In case they have a very heavy CC team, go and get Mercury's Treads.

If you're going AD her core is going to consist of
Berserker's Greaves and a Youmuu's Ghostblade OR A The Black Cleaver.
The active of the Youmuu's Ghostblade is awesome, it adds to Surge and Agony's Embrace, but The Black Cleaver gives you Armor penetration, which helps you a lot, too.
DO NOT TAKE AN Infinity Edge! A Guinsoo's Rageblade is enough and gives ap, some food for your skills! ^^ This build doesn't focus on crit Eve, you must see!
The rest builds as follow: IF the enemy has an Ap heavy team, take either a Wit's End OR a Hexdrinker. If they are AD heavy get A Madred's Bloodrazor OR a Wriggle's Lantern. Now i know the Wriggles isn't going to be the best item you can choose but it gives you Lifesteal and a free ward every 3 minutes! (In 30 minutes thats 750 gold saved)
Now if your team is very much Owning the enemy team, go ahead and build more AD instead of MR or Armor. Focus on the damage output, not the damage you can take

Ap Evelynn is a little bit harder to play but gives you a lot better damage output in the beginning. The Core is as follows: Boots of Mobility and a Lich Bane OR Sorcerer's Shoes and a Lich Bane. This choice is only dependant on their Magic Resistance.
If they have high Magic Resistance, get Sorcerer's Shoes

Also, take notice that you could also go with a Rabadon's Deathcap, but a Lich Bane Gives you more attack damage output since you will be spamming your Hate Spike in a teamfight.
Situational items: If they have a bunch of runners, get a Rylai's Crystal Scepter, it gives a slow, if you're AP, and get a Frozen Mallet if you're AD.
Also, In the case you want even more attack speed, get a Guinsoo's Rageblade . This thing is awesome, it gives you both attack speed, damage, and AP! Just awesome.
Now in case the game goes very far and you're done with your build, go sell your Doran's item, and buy something else.
For an enemy team with AD: Get a Randuin's Omen for Armor and HP.
For an enemy team with AP: Get either a Quicksilver Sash or a Banshee's Veil, whichever one fits the situation more (except that Banshee's Veil Gives you HP and mana AND magic resist.)

Unique Skills

The double slow trick:
Notice how Shadow Walk applies a slow to who you next attack, so if you open the fight with Your Hate Spike you can slow up to 2 targets! This is AWESOME In teamfights!

The Double Attack speed: Activate Agony's Embrace while activating Surge, it gives you an immense Attack speed bonus. If you're playing on AD, add Youmuu's Ghostblade on top of that!
Her Hate Spike deals 28% of her AP as additional magic damage, so with this full build she will deal 190 damage, and it's cooldown is EXTREMELY low. Perfect for "Dat damage"
Additionally, her Ravage deals 320+ 100% of Ability power as damage, adding to 696 AND taking Magic resist from the enemy, as well as armor for 26 for 5 seconds, you will easily take down a target with 50 magic res. and 2500 hp, as your Ravage will deal massive damage Adding to the damage your Hate Spike will deal.
Shadow Walk: Invisibility. Perfect. If they buy oracles, they waste money. Don't use it then unless you're trying to sneek off. With the Double Slow trick, she can slow 3 targets for 50% (If their speed is 400, thats suddenly 200 for 3 seconds!)

Unique items

Lich Bane: Like a trinity force, but better. gives you Magic resistance against their magic casters. Also, when attacking, it is always great to get 100% of your ability power (in this case, 376) ontop of your AD (142) Giving you massive AD damage for the next attack. Just use Ravage and then spam Hate Spike while in Agony's Embrace and Surge. This can and will take any tank down (Except if they have 3 Warmog's Armor, not like anyone gets 3 Warmog's Armor...)

Guinsoo's Rageblade A nice passive, the more you attack the faster you attack and the more ap you get (also counts when using Hate Spike, adding a stack)
Rabadon's Deathcap what to say? 140 AP and +30% AP damage! Nice.
Ryali's Crystal Scepter Extra slow on Using abilities, adding to your Shadow Walk!
Frozen Mallet super slow boost to all of your attacks, and a giant health boost.
Youmuu's Ghostblade Great active, more attack speed, low cooldown, just make sure to use it together with Agony's Embrace and Surge. Nice passive of armor penetration (20)! Keep attacking for additional seconds of usage, with a maximum of 8!
Guinsoo's Rageblade A nice passive, the more you attack the faster you attack and the more ap you get (also counts whe using [Hate Spike , adding a stack) Good for both builds, adds a little bit of AP/ad.

Farming with AP Evelynn is HORRIBLE! The best thing to do is try to last hit with Hate Spike and an auto attack, quite mana consuming but useful!

If you're on your way to gank an enemy, but they recall suddenly, and you don't want to steal minions, go into the jungle and get The Crest of the Ancient Golem for increased mana regen (which is, by the way, very awesome) or Blessing of the Lizard Elber for an extra slow after using Shadow Walk
