Introduction

In this build it is important to farm very much at the beginning, if you dont do it you will get a unfarmed Nocturne and no kills. I hope this build will show that you HAVE to farm very much late and early game.

Tips

- All wants to gank Nocturne, so dont overextend if its a jungler on the enemy team or if its miss.
- Dont try to take suicide with your ultimate.
- Nocturne is a great 1v1 champ, so dont be afraid to go into the enemy jungle !

Runes

Optimal Set

This rune is important to every AD champ in LoL + Nocturne got pretty much AS later in game so this rune will help you kill enemy champions.
Greater seal of Resilience
This rune helps in 1v1 fights with Nocturne because he so squishy and then he can stay in the fight longer.
[/img]Greater Glyph of Alacrity
This rune will help you at early game when you take first bloods.
Greater Quint of Desolation
Because you are going in lane and gank fast this rune is for you.

Items

orDorans Blade is good for ganking early game, but if you want to start safe start with Dorans Shield.

Berserker's Greaves will help you kill people fast because it gives you AS.

The Brutalizer gives you armor penetration and cooldown reduction, that helps you with ganking more often.

Phantom Dancer is very important to Nocturne because they all are gonna run then you have to go after them right? So Phantom Dancer will help you with Nocturne's Crit and running after enemy champions.

Bloodthirster is one of the items Nocturne HAVE to get because it gives you pretty much damage and lifesteal.

Infinity Edge helps you'r crit damage and increase you'r damage.

You can buy Guardian Angel if you dont want to die so fast.
Banshee's Veil helps you if you cant time the Spell Shield this item is good for you who cant time the Spell shield.

Black Cleaver works fine if some champions stacks armor, and it gives you damage and attack speed.

If the enemy team got 2 or 3 tanks you can buy Last whisperer. Or if you dont got pretty much Armor Penetration

In late game if you dont have anything to buy then upgrade The Brutalizer

Skill Sequence

Please dont harass too much with you'r Duskbringer, if you do you will end up with no mana and maybe underleveled.
One of the most important thing on Nocturne is the shield, because the shield can block all the enemy abilites. If you learn how to time the shield you dont need to waste money on Banshee's Veil.

Summary

Nocturne is one of the most OP champs i ever played in League Of Legends, i hope this guide will help you. Remember you dont have to build totally like this guide.
