Basic and easy to learn Noctur
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.
Hi my name is Rocketboy i am a platinum 5 top lane my favorite champions for top is Rengar,Lee Sin and Yorick. I play a little bit of nocturne and i find him to be more of the underdog to every other champion to me if i compare him to other champs his kit just dose not seem that great. For example fiddle q is way stronger then nocturnes e, And Nocturne's ult range is puny compared to lets say Pantheon. He really is a average champion but i think if built right i think he be a well equip'ed assassin.
Now there are prob better ways but i feel like just going a easy and cheap and also basic ad rune page is the best to start off with if u'r wanting to main Nocturne.And a simple ad build is perfect way because if u'r new to jungle and u wanna get better at it most jungles will be ad so i think the rune page is a perfect basic setup.
Masteries are really common just a simple 21/9 build not much to say on here if anything to change i would change the defensive masteries up but that just dose not seem that great because the -dmg reduction in the jungle is what u'r going for.
Now this is a basic dmg rollin build and if u want you can always throw in diff defensive items depending on what their team is like if they got more ad i would go with armor boots and a sunfire cape or if they got to much ap i would get mr boots and a banshees veil it really depends on what the enemy team has.
Skill sequence is not to hard for Nocturne but u really wanna land u'r q and u want to be in u'r q u wanna fight in it.Now while u'r chasing someone down with u'r on u wanna e to get the fear and u wanna be ready to pop u'r w just in case of inc cc.
For summoner spells smite is obv u'r first spell but u got so many options for u'r second so i think the top 3 u should choose from are flash,ghost and ignite all of these are really good in their on ways flash is just reg flash u flash into a e or q, ghost for chasing down someone or ignite for the extra dmg out put but i don't think it's the best because Nocturne dose not have a way to escape.
Creeping / Jungling
When u'r in the jungle don't forgot if u'r team needs u help them don't keep on farming but also remember to farm. Besides that basic just go to blue to red to wolf to wraiths pretty basic stuff but u want to keep a eye on the mini map if u see a enemy to far pushed gank them do not miss a kill.
Thats it for my Basic Nocturne guide prob to short but hey i doubt that many will read it anyways but i hope this helps anyone who did and have a fun time on the summoners rift.
