Introduction

Welcome to the Pure Damage guide for Nocturne. This guide has one purpose, the highest damage throughout the whole game. Not surviving, not escaping, just damage. If you play Nocturne, you can escape with your spells alone.


Guide Top

Summoner Spells

These mainly depend on how you play.

I chose flash and exhaust because it is the most damage you can get from him, you can do ignite exhaust too but i think that flash works best so you can flash to escape, but mainly you can flash to enemies and then fear them, ending it quickly.


Guide Top

Runes

I say Armor Penetration marks, and quints, and the rest attack speed, because this is a great damage boost both early and mid game, and makes it so you do not have to buy any armor penetration items. More damage. Quicker.


Guide Top

Masteries

Simply damage, not much more than that. It mainly depends on how you play, but these are the masteries I use. Again, high damage.


Guide Top

Items

This is the most important bit.
Situations:
Start: Get a Doran's Blade.
Next: If you have any reason to come back with less than 1500 gold, and more than 475, get the second Doran's Blade. Otherwise wait and get the B.F. Sword.
Next: Get a Bloodthirster. Don't bother with the Vampiric Scepter. This is so you can stay in lane a lot longer, and do a load more damage. Try to kill as many minions as you can, so that you can rack up the boost on Bloodthirster.
Next: Time for your first Phantom Dancer. If you can, get it fully, but if not get the Zeal first, then Phantom Dancer. Be at your liberty for the other two items, just don't go back for them.
Next: Black Cleaver. B.F. Sword first, then the full item. Just wait for the Black Cleaver, don't bother with the Dagger.
Next: Second Phantom Dancer. Same routine as the first one.
Next: Bloodthirster. Same routine.

Try to only sell the Doran's Blades when you are about to get a B.F. Sword.


Guide Top

Skill Sequence

Simply, get Duskbringer first. This will increase your damage output and movement speed. And its great for last hitting. Then you're going to want Unspeakable Horror, again for damage output, CC'ing, and running, or chasing. Get Duskbringer again then Shroud of darkness.

Now, max out Duskbringer (get Paranoia if you can of course.)
Next: Unspeakable Horror
Next: Shroud of Darkness.

Always get Paranoia.

Summary

Highest damage output build I have ever made. And I have tested it many times, just never ranked play. You can take 2v1 no problem, might have a little bit of trouble with 3. But again, it's all situational.
