Introduction

Why hello there, I am Campy. I have been playing nocturne since he came out and have always loved him. I play nocturne to focus squishies and blow them up. This is why I mainly play him. His mid game and late game is VERY strong. His early game is not as strong but its decent.


Guide Top

Summoner Spells

I always take flash and smite(of course). Now ghost and smite is decent too but its personal preference.

Skill Sequence

I max Q first, then at lvl 2 I put a point in to W. Max E last.

Unique Skills

The unique skills nocturne brings to the team is bombing on the squishies. And another good part is working VERY well in teamfights. Having that leap from your ult helps loads espically. Another good idea of using the ult is if your baroning, and they know, ult so that way you can secure the baron and they can't steal it from you.

Pros / Cons

Pros:
Can kill people pretty easily.
Can teamfight well.
Can secure baron/dragon/any camp/buff with smite.
Mid to late game is where he shines the most.

Cons:
Kind of squishy.
Early game is HARD.
AP casters hurt him so bad.

Ending

This is pretty much why I play nocturne. It depends on which other runes you want. But you have to have the armor seals. MR blues would be good, attack speed reds, and probably armor pen quints would be really good too. Its person preference though. Thanks for reading and hope you enjoy! This is my first guide/build. Hope you enjoyed a lot.
