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.
Items should be pretty self explanatory but I'll explain anyway.
Boots first. Why? b/c tied w/ duskbringer you will be a pro chaser from lvl 1 onwards and you aren't going to be oneshotting anyone. always prepare to chase.
3x Health Pots- You want first blood... and bad. Initiating the first encounter will take its tole and we dont wanna have to leave the lane early if we fail. falling behind in levels is a killer for Noc
Berserkers- Atck Spd. duh
Zeal- here we get more atck spd and some crit. this is great for your passive so we gonna get it early
Phage- nothing is better when you are an excellent chase than a little extra dmg and the enemy being slowed. this will earn you some extra kills while exhaust is down.
Stark's- Speed and lifesteal from starks make you're mediocre passive into a survival blanket.
PhatnomDance- More of the same great things we are getting from Zeal
Frost Mallet- Extra HP will help your survivability and givwe your lifesteal some time to keep you alive.
Infinity Edge- If its not obviouse to you idk what to say here
Banshee's- OK maybe its not great for making you a killing machine. BUT, when you take the veils passive and add in you're shroud of darkness you are blocking 2 negetive spell effects every fight and thats huge.
w/ banshes you should kill every caster you fight 1v1 every time no matter what.
OK. rule number 1 is dont die early.
Rule number 2 is dont get behind in levels for any reason.
buy your boots and pots and race to your lanes bushes. stay on your side of bushes and wait wait wait.
as soon as you see anemy cross hit your duskbringer. Then autoattack, hit ignite and exhaust. BLAMMO! Anyone you hit w/ that dies b/c they are never gonna get away from you. I've gotten first blood on garren, nunu, and rammus this way.
Now you need to stay in lane until you have berserkers money.
The idea is not to die and to stay leveling untill 6. at six you should be able to buy boots and zeal at least. At this point you are ready to gank.
if the weakened enemy is in range go ahead and ulti in, if not save it to chase.
Hit them w/ dusk right away and begin auto attack madness. also hit your shield as well.
they will either foolishly run or try to hit you with a spell. this is a win win situation.
if they attack you start your unspeakable horror that you can do while fighting. soon they will be feared and you will have time too regen any life they took from you.
at this point unless its a built tank they are almost dead and life is easy. if they run you have you're ulti and uber chase mode ready.
if you are losing then you duskbringer towards base and run away. OR use your ulti to tele to another safer enemy lol.
Nocturns ulti has proved a useful escape device for me on a couple occasions so far so its something to keep in mind.
- DONT GET BEHIND EVER. IF YOU DIE IT SHOULD BE WHILE GETTING A DOUBLE KILL!
-REMEMBER TO USE YOUR SHIELD ON INITIATE
-DONT INITIATE W/ ULTI IF YOU ARE 2 FT AWAY FROM ENEMY
-HAVE FAITH IN YOUR LIFE STEAL AND ATTACK SPEED TO PULL YOU THROUGH FIGHTS W/ YI'S AND TRYNDAMERE TYPES.(JUST MAKE SURE YOU FEAR THEM)
-ALSO REMEMBER THAT THE SWAN DIVE POSE YOU USE WHEN YOU ULTI SOMEONE IS HILARIOUS AND HEROIC SO IF YOU CAN LAST HIT WITH IT MAKE SURE TO GET A SCREEN CAP.
ENJOY THE NEW CHAMP GUYS!
