Guide Top

Pros / Cons

Pro's

Easy farmer
Outstanding pushing capability with Duskbringer and Umbra Blades
Able to split push and be in the fight with Paranoia
Insane amount of sustain in lane
High base damage with Duskbringer and Shroud of Darkness
High kill potential on his own
Easy escape from jungle ganks

Con's

Mana problems 1-5, don't spam Duskbringer and Shroud of Darkness
Not as strong vs high CC comps
Doesn't work well with squishy junglers ( Master Yi, Shaco.. etc)

Runes

- Greater Mark of Desolation or Greater Mark of Attack Damage: Personal preference
- Greater Mark of Critical Chancex1: I run this rune on every AD style champion, amusing when you crit people early on and they rage.
- Greater Seal of Armor: BiS
- Greater Glyph of Armor: For a lane that you think is hard
- Greater Glyph of Magic Resist(Scaling or Flat): I run flat MR against scary AP's top like Rumble and scaling if I see they have a lot of magic damage in a team comp
- Greater Quintessence of Movement Speed: Usually use these, movement speed is so good
- Greater Quintessence of Armor: Read Greater Glyph of Armor

Masteries

21/9/0 - Vs easy lanes
21/0/9 - If you can consistently get buffs
9/21/0 - For if you just want to generally be tanky
0/21/9 - For against something like a rumble, you need to be tanky and you need some Mana Regen


Guide Top

Items

Starting Items
Cloth Armor Health Potion x5 - Against an AD top
Boots of Speed Health Potion x4 - If you just want movement in lane, easier for dodging skillshot junglers.
Regrowth Pendant - If you are a jew and want to farm all day with GP10's then show up to a teamfight at 20 mins and ace them.

Core Vs AD
Ninja Tabi or Mercury's Treads
Wriggle's Lantern - Extra sustain with some Armor and a free ward
Phage - For the slow
Atma's Impaler - Armor, crit and extra AD

Core Vs AP
Mercury's Treads
Wit's End
