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.
I'm posting my build, partly as a reminder to myself what to do during a game. I suppose I can let a few of you avid moba-ers in on my secrets.
I've never been completely satisfied with any eve build on moba, they are all far too squishy. At higher elo, Armor and Magic Resistance are an absolute MUST! Besides, having some tank makes Evelyn incredibly useful late-game. An eve that stings like a bee, with a shield the size of Alistar's... you get the picture. Without further a due, my guide:
A lot of builds utalize Boots of Mobility. However using Dark Frenzy and speed2 boots is faster than waiting for your speed5 to kick in if you are traveling less than half the map. It costs no mana, and has a few seconds left on cooldown by the time you reach your destination. So unless you plan on running marathons...
I love Mercury's Treads. I use them whenever I can, but it is not efficient in this case. Dark Frenzy clears you of any slows, so don't use it as a gap closer until you drain the enemy of thier CC.
Ninja Tabi. Tried and tested, this is my favorite. The Armor helps sustain in the jungle, and gives you a huge presence even into mid game against AD lanes. The worst contribution to your team is to die going for a gank.
From Humble Beginnings
Evelyn is weak and relatively squishy at the beginning, and her jungle is slow compared to some.
For a defensive start, you can kill Wolf , Ancient Golem , Wraith ,and then Wolf , and then Recall . Your health will be too low to attempt a gank at this point. Since you wont need the speed, you can opt for a Cloth Armor and a few Health Potion in an attempt to have a few potions left over.
For an offensive style, its Wraith , Lizard Elder , and a Gank before the lane hits level 2. In this case, it is beneficial to take your Dark Frenzy, when you hit level 2.
Regardless, you will find yourself making frequent trips to stock up on items, which is alright. Evelyn, is a material girl, and must be wearing the latest designer fashions.
Early game is very important to Eve. Make the offensive/defensive decision early on, based upon enemy champion choices. See section on ganks for strengths and weaknesses.
The Culling (aka Ganks) Early/Mid Game
Holding Agony's Embrace to clear the innitial CC is incredibly important.
Champions to be careful with (including obvious burst AP champions):
Skill Sequence- Hate Spike is a huge contributor to damage, especially early game, invest in it.
Runes- Tank is good, especially with your shield. Eve leans towards AD, but her early game Hate Spike and late game Agony's Embrace benefit greatly from magic pen.
Items- Go buy often.
Farming- Lane when you can. Last hit for your teammates when they Recall , lane > jungle for money and xp.
Team Fights- Go straight for the AD, use your stealth to your advantage. Pop your Agony's Embrace to get as big of a shield as possible, and hold your Dark Frenzy until you need to clear slows.
