Introduction

Hello and welcome to my first guide on mobafire. this is my build and strategy on how to play nocturne, the eternal nightmare. I am not saying i am a pro or by any means an expert, but this build has served me well. if you enjoy striking fear into careless enemies, read on.

Runes/masteries

For runes, I run 9 greater marks of desolation, 9 greater seals of resilience, 9 greater glyphs of focus and 3 greater quints of desolation. you can easily swap out the cooldowns for attack speed or mr/level, but I find cooldowns great for any jungler. for marks, your pretty locked in. nothing but armor pen will really benefit you. seals, armor is a must for any jungler. that 13 armor is so important in the jungle. for quints, it is very flexible. you can go hp, move speed, armor pen, attack damage, or attack speed. i like armor pen for it's benefits early and mid game. until your enemies start stacking armor, you will be doing true damage to them. for masteries, i like the 21-0-9 masteries. 9 in utility is staple for almost all junglers and the 21 in offense greatly helps your damage, and doing damage is your job.

Jungling

I find that Nocturne functions much better in the jungle then he does in the lane. in the jungle he:

    provides a strong self heal passive
    an attack damage nuke/steroid
    a passive attack speed boost, furthering his passive
    strong ganks
    crazy map control, anyone that overextends is dead.
Lane nocturne I am against mainly because he tends to push the lane and it is harder to gank if the enemy can tell where you are heading.

for my route, i start off with a [*] vampiricscepter and head off to wolf camp. i take my q, duskbringer first. try to hit every wolf with your q and auto attack them dead. immediately run to the wraith camp. smite the blue wraith, and from this you will hit level 2. take 1 point in your w, shroud of darkness as quickly as you can. then throw out your q and auto attack the small wraiths. after they are dead, run to the small golems and spam q/auto attack them down. you will hit level 3 from this. take another point in your q and recall back to base. grab a cloth armor and 1 health potion and get to your blue buff. kill the blue buff with your q and auto attacks. don't use your health potion. go to your wolves and kill them, you will hit 4 from this. take your e, unspeakable horror next. run to your wraiths and kill them, then your small golems, and then red buff. use your health potion at red buff and smite it when it gets low. you will hit 5 from this. take a 3rd point in duskbringer. you are now ready to gank.
