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.
This build is just a fun alternative i use when trying to play a chill game. Do not rely on this build unless you fully understand the ins and outs of it. This build is very risky early game as it sacrifices damage that could be used in fights, personally i have had no problem fighting still as Cutlass and Avarice blade both help out if you can land those crits and life steal a substantial ammount. This is my first build i have posted so it might not be that well done, id appreciate any creative criticism or tips that could help ^^.
Runes And Masteries
For runes go Armor pen reds/Armor Yellows/Magic Resist blues/ AD quints as armor penetration is very useful early and mid game for that bit of extra damage against their support or tank. Or you could just replace the armor pen reds for straight Ad. The Masteries are made to be able to farm gold and still being able to do some damage.
Pros / Cons
Pros: +Extra gold Cons: -Sacrificing Damage
+Build Quicker -If you fail to poke
+Less chance of or cs you get less gold
Just do the usual. Constantly poke the enemy champions while collecting cs, try to get as much cs as possible as your avarice blade gives you extra gold for killing a minion, at first its small but then it adds up.
hold onto the Philo/Kage/Avarice until you get the other items of your build, helps maximize your gold stacking. Also with the pickpocket mastery, it is very important using that as much as possible as it will be the start of your early game collection. Keep your avarice blade and philo stone as long as possible throughout early to mid game as they steadily collect gold.
I would recommend you duo Que with someone at bot lane, preferably Lux or anyone with a shield and CC. This all comes down to if you trust the people you are randomly placed with, if you do not have confidence in your support Do NOT use this build
Early game it is crucial that you farm up your adoration as carefully as possible while still banking off your items and mastery. Always keep 2 axes spinning. As always be sure that your support is ready to back you up if they initiate on you and that you have clear vision on possible ganks
Mid To late game
Once you reach mid game you want to get rid of Kage's lucky pick, Then if you need more room get rid of the Philo stone, As these become less useful late game and have already gave you the boost you needed. Try to hold onto the Avarice blade until big team fights and contesting baron comes into play, then you should just turn that into a static shiv
This build really depends on the team composition you have and the support with you, you have to farm and constantly harass the enemy champions to put use into that gold pickpocket, But do NOT go in to far to pickpocket without vision or without the support being with you
