Jungle

Alright so if your a jungle nocturne you would ofcourse start at blue buff. Make sure you get someone to give you a good leash because you don't have alot of armor. Make sure when your duskbringer is up you use it and stand ontop of the dusk for bonus damage. After you get blue buff you should be level 2 now head to wolves, wraiths, then golems. Depending on how much health you have left you should try backing before attempting red but make sure you can try and some early ganks on your other lanes while farming your jungle.

Note: If you're jungle nocturne build a lantern first for the bonus damage on minions.

After you got your ultimate you should have a high chance in securing kills.
When you gank you should use your ultimate-duskbringer-unspeakable horror. (If the champion your ganking has a slow, fear, knock up or any other skill to end your gank make sure you use shroud of darkness to block the next attack)

Lane

If you decide you want to lane with nocturne I would reconmend getting some nice lifesteal and damage. Starting out with a Vampiriac sceptre and follow up with B.F. sword to complete your bloodthirster. After completing your bloodthirster work on either a giants belt for health or go straight to your infinity edge then follow up with some attack speed. Last grab an atmas for some defence and your build is complete.

Now that we've discussed the build lets work on lane tactics. I would reconmend harassing with your -Q- and follow up with your -E- to put out massive damage. Keep in mind mind game you can secure almost every kill in a 1v1 with nocturne useing the simple combo of -Q-E-W-Q-
