I KNOW ALOT OF YOU LIKE TO JUST SKIP THE PROCESS AND NOT READ THIS,IF YOUR THAT PERSON ALL I ASK IS TO READ THE ITEMS SECTION, IT SHALL EXPLAIN ALOT ABOUT THIS BUILD, HOWEVER READING EVERYTHING ISNT THAT BAD EITHER.
This is my first guide with MF, however this isnt my first time playing with MF, This guide truly maximizes MF's potential with her ability to chase, with comfort(meaning staying alive), but also maintain a devastating dps ratio.
This guide hasn't really been tested mid lane
PLZ DO NOT COMPLAIN TO ME SAYIN YOU GOT SCREWED AT MID LANE
THIS IS MORE GEARED TOWARDS BOT & TOP LANE
However if your feeling good about MF, go for mid.
For Runes, i pretty much set up a standard dps with armor penetration, Health, however for Glyphs i took mana regeneration. i took the mana regeneration because of her abilities. MF's key points in chasing someone is her "Make it Rain" skill. Although it doesnt do as much damage as you would have hoped, it allows MF to quickly close the distance between a target. Thus to maintain her ability to use that skill is in either "Manamune" or Glyphs. ill go into detail about "Manamune"
For Masteries i really dont need to explain much, standard 21 0 9, Maximizing MF's damage, but also maintaining her mana and speed.
YAY item time. MF's items reallllllllyyyy depends on the situation. This guide will point out what you can do depending on the situation.
First i would like to start off with a "Doran's Blade", Many ppl say why dont you start off with a "Berserker's Greaves". Heres the thing about that, MF's Strut ability pretty much covers her movement speed during the beginning of the game. As i said before at the top of this guide, This build is more geared towards bot and top lane, you'll most likely have a partner, who can minimize the damage you'll take thus your strut will constantly be up for the most part. "Doran's Blade" gives you a high damage output with your first skill "Double Up".
Now that you gained enough farm, you want to head towards a "Berserker's Greaves", this will give you Movement speed of about 370-500 *not entirely shure*, however this gives MF a huge range of being able to chase pretty much anyone except for Yi..... freaken speedy mother f*
Next you would like to head for you First "Phantom Dancer" I say first because i shall explain later on as this guide will explain multi builds for MF. I want you to go for "Zeal" and then stop goin for a "Phantom Dancer". At this point, You should Purchase both "Vampiric Scepter" and a "Dagger"
The next item depends on what you feel more comformtable with, whether its survivability or dps. You can either go towards a "Bloodthirster" for the survivability because of the intensive healing, or "Black Cleaver" for the ability to maximize MF's dps. However, in the long run you will end up with both "Bloodthirster" and "Black Cleaver".*Some people say to go with Bloodthirster because of its stack, let me tell you somethin about the stacking. It doesnt take that long to stack the "Bloodthirster" especially once you get both "Bloodthirster" and "Black Cleaver" Personally i like to choose the "Black Cleaver", However this guide is for everyone and is soley based on other people's style of play. At this point you should be doing alot of damage. if you've been following my guide, You want to maximize MF's Critical with "Infinity Edge" You could have also taken Infinity Edge instead of Bloodthirster, i have done that before if i got fed during the game, however i prefer to get "Bloodthirster" soley because of the survivability. You remember the "Zeal you bought way back, you can take 2 options with this
Which path will you choose
You could either go "Phantom Dancer" or "Trinity Force"
Again this really depends on How you choose to play
Phantom Dancer more towards Dps
Trinity Force More towards using some of the skills
if the game prolongs to this point
You want to get rid of your Doran's Blade and then get a Madred's Bloodrazor, this will really help against annoying tanks such as Singed, Volibear, Malphite, Garen, and Lee sin because of their incredible high hp
If the game Prolongs to this game, why even bother playing, surrender even if your winning my god, its probably around 60 minutes or more.
At this point one or the other team is completely on the other side. Get rid of the boots, and then grab another Phantom Dancer. HERE IS WERE THE SECOND ZEAL COMES IN. the Phantom Dancer pretty much make up for the the lost speed, but your also gainin Crit and more attack speed. Also with MF's Strut you really wont lose out on any speed. Finally start buying the Potions that boost your character, if it prolongs to this point.
This you could buy but you dont need it as much
Some people say why didnt you get a frozen mallet somewhere in this. YOU DONT NEED IT AT THIS POINT, MF Does so much crit damage that you would kill the person quicker then they could move so you really dont need it. The most i Max out with one shot was 982 crit damage. Some People say why dont you get Manamune, you could get Manamune, however i am more geared towards using the dps perspective of MF's thus i dont really rely on MF's skills only for make it rain and Impure shot which doesnt drain your mana. However if you do enjoy using the skills more, then you could get a Manamune instead of the Madred's Bloodrazor.
MF's Play style.
When you pick up your Doran's Blade and head for bot or top, you want to play pretty docile, MF's Strut ability is lost after you get hit, so try to stay back and just gain up last shot hits. But, try to land alot of hits with Double Up, Try to hit the other players with the second hit, dont target them first. Double Up does more damage when you hit a minion first then, the target, however its harder to hit. If you have the chance to kill though, obviously do what you can to hit the target. Once your lvl 3 you want to harass because of your impure shot. Impure shot will deal lots of damage, if your constantly harassing plus you dont need to spend mana. Once your at the point of having either Bloodthirster, or Black cleaver, play aggresive. You should be able to destory at most high percentages of AP characters, and deal significant damage towards AD carries. At which you have gained enough coins to get both black cleaver or bloodthirster, your dealing alot of damage. Once you gained an Infinity Edge, just start chasing down people. This point you deal alot of damage, and have enough counts on the bloodthirster, to maintain your hp for a while. However that doesnt mean to go 1v5. And from this point on i dont really need to explain much. The amount of damage, and chasing ability that MF has at this point will just lead you towards a good killing spree
