Masteries

I often choose 21 9 0 but 9 21 0 and 0 21 9 are also quite viable, depending on your lane opponent and your play style.

Items

Core Items


In 80% of all cases u should get Mercurys , since it stacks multiplicative with your passive.
e.g. you get 0,9 disable duration when you are near one champion. If u get 35 Tenacity it goes like 0,9 x 0,65 so u got a total disable duration of 0,585 x (disable duration) if u are near one Champion.
You should only get Ninja tabi if you are facing heavy physical dps teams with only a few disables.



Your Nr.1 Core item is Trinity Force , once u get it your Damage output is extemly high, combined with a Madreds Bloodrazor you should be able to cut through almost any opponent.

After you got Trinity Force you should focus on getting your Guradian Angel for extra tankiness and the nice passive.

Against heavy physical DPS Teams you should get Randuins early in the game, if you are facing magic damage reliant teams you should get a Maw o. Mal. instead of Madreds .

Summoner Spells

Ghost, Ignite, Flash, Teleport, Exhaust all viable

Skill Sequence

Harassment



Once you reached Level 3 you can begin to harass your opponent, to deny xp and gold.

If you are near your enemy begin with followed by activating . If your opponent is afraid of your dmg output and runs away follow him with .

If you face a ranged Champ or if your enemy plays quite defensive you sometimes need to begin your combo with to reach melee range followed by to slow/stun and for the dmg output.



Escaping/Juking


is your life ensurance. You can either use it on an enemy creep or the enemy Jungler, to escape an incoming gank.

e.g. you have pushed your lane and suddenly a wild Alistair appears, ready to you right into your enemy. If u react fast u can to him followed by , making it impossible for Alistair to you to death.

You can use the same tactic to escape the most of ganks, but dont forget to buy sight ward at your 1st b!!

If you failed to escape and you are still seeing the chance of escaping, use either on the enemy champions or the enemy creeps to heal.

Farming

Since your cooldown refreshes on killing blow of your Q you can easily kill most of the enemy creeps.

The End

Thanks for taking the time to read my guide. I would be happy if you leave some constructive criticism since this is my first guide.
