Chapter 1

Ok, hi everyone! First off, I'd like to say that this is my first build/guide. It isn't fancy or even slightly attractive. I built this to show my Nocturne build, not to make eye candy. But all the same, I hope you enjoy the build.

At this point you may be wondering why this build calls Nocturne "The AoE king". Seems strange right? My reasoning is that Noc's passive lets him unleash an awesome AoE to surrounding enemies, combine this with high attack speed and AoE items like Ionic Spark and you have some serious farming and AoE potential. Try the build below to get an awesome laning/jungle combo.
Start with the jungling order then once you get ionic spark and/or high attack speed go push the lane amazingly fast and gain experience pretty quickly. MAKE SURE TO RESET THE LANE!! (push until your minions get to turret, then let the turret kill all of them) After you farm for awhile you should be at an advantage exp-wise, thus you will be more powerful than the opponent and can gank more easily. (at least, that's the concept)

*DISCLAIMER* -warning, I might have no idea what I'm talking about. But it works for me. That's why its a beginner build.

Nocturne Build:

-Start: Cloth Armor & HP POT x 5 (if jungling) Boots of Speed and HP POT x 3
(if laning)

-Vampiric Scepter

-Longsword

-Wriggle's Lantern (from "Vampiric Scepter" & "Longsword" & "Cloth Armor*")

-Heart of Gold

-Beserker's Greaves (from "Boots of Speed*")

-The Brutalizer

-Ionic Spark

-Madred's Razors


============================================================================

Final Build:


-Wriggle's Lantern
-Beserker's Greaves
-Randuin's Omen (from "Heart of Gold")
-Ionic Spark
-Madred's Bloodrazor (from "Madred's Razors")
-Youmuu's Ghostblade (from "The Brutalizer")

============================================================================

JUNGLING ORDER: Wolves - Ancient Golem (yes I know it seems tough...smite) - Wraithes - Ancient Golem (yep, again.) - GANK FOR YOUR LIFE!! -
After a gank or so, go heal at spawn and buy some items. - Lizzard Elder - Path 1 or 2;

1. Laning: Push or Farm a lane, killing small golems whenever possible.

2. Ganker/Support: Continue running the jungle, focusing mainly on the Lizzard Elder and
the Ancient Golem. When you see a good opprotunity to gank, take it immediately. Also make
sure to regularly check the minimap for instances where you could help/save a teammate.
(For example, if you're close to a buddy whose outnumbered 2 to 1 go to him and hold off the
enemies so he can escape (if he's about to die), or team up to gank them if you think you can.)

Hope you found this helpful. If you vote down please explain why in a comment so I can improve the guide and be a better LoL player in general. No trolling please.
