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.
Hello guys, this is my first build on Mobafire. I'd like to explain how i Build Nocturne. So... let's go.
NOTE: I SENT A BUILD, BUT I WASN'T LOGGED IN, SO THIS IS THE REAL BUILD. ANOTHER BUILD IS CALLED NOCTURNE - THE REAL KILLER.
NOTE²: I AM BRAZILIAN, SO PLEASE, DON'T NOTICE MY ENGLISH :)
NOTE³: THIS IS A SHORT GUIDE AND DOESN'T HAVE MANY INFORMATION, BUT IF YOU WANT MORE EXPLANATION, SEND ME AN E-MAIL.
firstname.lastname@example.org <<< HERE IS MY EMAIL, PLZ COMMENT MY LITTLE FIRST GUIDE AND SEND MY YOUR QUESTIONS. IF YOU LIKE, I'LL POST MORE BUILD AND GUIDES (MORE COMPLETE AND DETAILED)
Pros / Cons
* Kill very fast
* Is able to solo baron and turrets
* Great ganker
* Easy to use
* Great damage
* Amazing Farmer
* Can jungle very well
* A Thornmail stops it
* Very focused 'cause of his damage
NOTE: IF THE ENEMY GET A THORNMAIL, CHANGE 1 BLOODTHIRSTER FOR A LAST WHISPER.
Well, I chose these runes, because my build focuses on speed and damage, basically, a lot of damage but you can change the runes and put critical strike and crit. strike chance. You may want to put armor pen, this is a good choice.
Well, as my build is based on attack speed, attack damage and life steal, I chose this sequence of skills for that reason. With Duskbringer you will cause damage and will still be able to chase the enemy runaway.
With the Shroud of Darkness will cause extra damage, but it for now, is not as important as the Unspeakable Horror that is very important.
As I said before, the Unspeakable Horror is very important, because with it you will leave your enemy "scared to death" and so the kill will be much faster
Finally the ultimate skill, with it you will teleport to the enemy is low on HP (just click on him) or simply, is running alone.
NOTE: Do not forget to keep clicking on your opponent, because when you use your ultimate, Nocturne stops to attack.
Well, We'll start with a Doran's blade, to the early game it is very useful. After Doran's blade get a Vampiric Scepter, for a good damage with Doran's, and a good life steal. After these items get a berserkers greaves. Now you are fast and strong. After a few kills get a Phantom Dancer, Nocturne is now very strong even without the other items. To add a spectacular damage, buy The Bloodthirster. Then, to get a better damage and kill a lot because of its effect (critical strike) and its damage, get an Infinity Edge. Now you are invincible! to avoid taking any risk of KS, The Bloodthirster take another or to avoid the risk of dying, buy a Frozen Mallet.
Well, I chose these items based solely on damage and life steal, they get really absurd but still can be used a Frozen Mallet, for more HP and even slow the enemies. You can (or should) sell your Dorans blade at the end of the build, before you buy the last item, only to make room or even to earn extra money.
NOTE: You are able to solo baron with this build.
I always choose Ignite and Exhaust but you can use:
FLASH AND IGNITE : If you are being ganked, you can run with flash. If you are killing a noob runner and He is almost dead, you can kill him with ignite
IGNITE AND HEAL: I don't like it because of heal, but you are on 5x5 you can help your teammates.
EXHAUST AND HEAL: You can stay alive with this choice, but it's very noob choice ;/
You can choose some kind of different items according to the need;
THORNMAIL: You can get this to kill a fed Master Yi, Tryndamere, Xin-Zhao and anothers basic attacks users.
Guardian Angel: You can get this to stay alive all the time (almost all the time)
Last Whisper: You can get this item to kill a Thornmail user
Quicksilver Sash: This is a nice situational item for any champion. Use its active to cleanse off CC like Infinite Duress and Nether Grasp, or DoTs and delayed spells like Children of the Grave, Hemoplague, and even Ignite. Move this item to a slot where you'll remember the hotkey.
Banshee's Veil: You can get this to stop any first enemy ability cast on you.
NOTE: DON'T FORGET TO PUT SOME WARDS TO PREVENT GANKS
