Introduction

I know she needs an overhaul in a major way, for right now this seems to be the best build for her.It is all about making her do what she does best right now, taking hits and keeping enemies in range of damage dealers.


Guide Top

Runes

These runes have simple but important meanings. The reds help push the damage she can do. The yellow give a bit more early game sustainability, which given her lack in natural ability to farm early is helpful. The blue and quints are for doing her job by getting stuns more frequently and keeping her shield up as much as possible.


Guide Top

Masteries

The masteries are really some basic caster type in order to make her abilities as strong and spammable as possible.


Guide Top

Items

This is a sad truth, the item build exposes her weaknesses. She is one of the worse damagers you can find, but she is able to be very tanky and stun alot.Merc treads are just to good not to use.The philo and heart are to help stay in the fight early and make farming less of and issue while building items for later. Aegis does what it does, and gives decent protection early when used with her shield.Force and sunfire are interchangeable depending on the protection you need most, forces regeneration lets her stay in lane and sunfire gives much needed damage bonus. The omen and reverie are for cooldown reduction, and their passives and actives make her more effective at keeping enemies from having the opportunity to escape.

Skill Sequence

The choice to max shield first is for the protection boost and as one of her best damages.Zenith blade next is for the combination of activating shield then blade and waking into minion waves to destroy them in a manner that gives the mid through late game a highly efficient farm, as well as helping prevent escapes.The single level of daybreak is all you need to take early as the damage is low but the stun is maxed from the start.It's all about keeping alive and slowing enemy progress to a crawl.Her ult is your best chance at a kill shot, but can also be used to initiate if you coordinate well.It can stun/slow an entire team at range so it can even be useful to save teammates if needed.

Summoner spells

These are pretty straight forward, she doesn't have a built in escape, and exhaust fits her role well in all other situations.

Summary

She needs a buff, but for now true tank with great assist potential is what she can do best for most teams.I love the concept, weep for the execution, hope to rework this soon.Her shear toughness can lead to kills but at the very least she can be an assist machine.
