Introduction

Hi. This is my first build EVER, so please bear with me if it's ****ed up. Nocturne has always been my favourite champion, and he was the first i ever bought for 6300 IP. In this guide i will be showing you how i play him. It is a very straight out tanky DPS build if that's what you're looking for.

And sorry for my bad english. And my guide is probally not that good :/ But my friend who just bought Nocturne wanted me to make one.

Runes

For marks i take armor penetration (Obviously) No big surprises here.

I take flat armor seals to give you that edge you need as an assassin.

I take magic resist per level glyphs to give you a better late game advantage against those pesky AP carries.

Last but not least, armor penetration quintessences to rip though tanks better.


Guide Top

Masteries.

I go 22/0/8 no big surprises. You need those few utility points for shorter respawn time and more EXP. The offensive ones should be self explanitory.

Items

I open up with Dorans Blade because it benefits you in many ways. Then as soon as i head back i grab berserker greaves and maybe a ward or two. Now you should start to save up for your brutalizer which will give you both CDR, damage and armor penetration. Now for your very important item as Nocturne, Bloodthirster! This item gives you a large amount of damage and lifesteal. And make sure to get that passive up quickly! Now your "Core" Is done. Now it is actually up to you which items to get! CHeck the list to see what i prefer.

Skill Sequence

Get a point in Unspeakable Horror at level 1. This will alow you to possibly get first blood, due to the fear and your strong auto attacks. Then get a point in Duskbringer, then Shroud of Darkness (Make sure to use it well) Then max out Duskbringer but take a point in Paranoria at level 6! Then you max out Unspeakable Horror and make sure to take in Paranoria when you can. Then max out Shroud of Darkness last.


Guide Top

Summoner spells.

My default is Flash and Exhaust.

Alternatives could be:

Ghost: To catch those annoying runners.

Ignite: To kill the ones that got away with very little health.

STAY AWAY FROM:

Heal: You don't need this!

Clarity: Although Nocturne is mana hungry it's still a waste.

Revive: Only for dumbasses in my opinion.

Summary

Yes, i know i don't put in pictures of the items and spells i mention, but this is my first guide and i am still learning how to use Mobafire. Hope you like this build. This is how i am succesfull.


See you on the battlefield!
