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.
This is my first guide on Mobafire, so it wont be a perfect/very detailed guide. ill just explain the basics of my build. :)
Plz leave a Comment with the things a could do better.
I've choosen those Runes based on other guides and, and based on my own thoughts about laning.
[*] Greater Quintessence of Desolation - This is because its just badass to have, it helps you so much to deal extra damage.
[*] Greater Mark of Desolation - Those runes have the same reason as "Greater Quintessence of Desolation" runes ;)
[*] Greater Seal of Strength - I've chosen those, because its always nice to have some extra damage, and for sure at the start of the game.
[*] Greater Glyph of Alacrity - And those are there for some attack speed witch is a must have for nocturne. and at realy help to clean the lane quicker and the start of the game :)
[*] Offence - just build it up to get maximum damage out of it. btw, summoner's wrath is for the exhuast, because exhaust will lower the defence now :D
[*] Defence - uuh... not realy needed
[*] Utility - I love recall, ive got it on every champion, cause i like to play safe at the start. when im low health and the enemy is too, I get back fast, heal up, and go back to screw the low health ememy. ^_^
Ill keep this one short, cause its just a list of items and it chances a lot XD but those a my favorites.
[*] First of Boots (duh...)
[*] Berseker's Greavers - For attack steed and movement speed.
[*] Wriggle's Lantern - Because it has almost everything that Nocturne needs and its a great start item cause its pretty cheap. :)
[*] Zeal => Phantom Dancer - For a lots of attack speed, extra movement speed and lovely critical strike chance.
[*] Blood Thirster - THIS IS A MUST FOR NOCTURNE! The awesome life steal and attack damage, Just beautiful. ^_^
[*] Madred's Bloodrazer - For some armor, attack damage and great attack speed.
[*] Frozen Mallet - Great last item, for damage and quite a lot of health.
[*] Exhaust - Its great cause, if you are on cooldown, you can buy a little time, and it will even weaken the defence cause of the masterie: Summoner's Wrath.
[*] Ignite - This one Doesnt need explenation i guess, cause it just great to deal some last damage when the enemy runs away with low health.
Pros / Cons
[*] Very power full and for sure an OP if you play and build him the right way.
[*] Awesome ganking, cause of its ultimate "Paranoia" witch is a very uniqe ulti that fears the hell out of everyone. >:D
[*] All ability's can be used as offensive AND defensive.
[*] Great farmer.
[*] Great jungler.
[*] You can solo almost the whole game (until they try to gank you with 3 at once, cause you to powerfull. XD)
[*] You realy need to play safe at the start of the game, and go heal once in a while.
[*] gets focused pretty fast, so team fights are pretty bad for him.
Tips How Play With Nocturne
- Start as usual with FB (First Blood)
- Go back inmidiately after FB, or after you see than it wont work out anymore, heal up, go -to the top lane, and wait for the minions.
- Just start farming minions and keep casting you Duskbringer through the minions on the enemy champion. but keep distance from him to keep up you health.
- when you mana is done for 3/4, cast a duskbringer on him directly when he is close, and smash him up till you low health and go back to heal up.
- Now go back and finish him with a gank.
- Repeat this, keep farming and start jungling too, to gain more money and more items.
- Now start ganking to bottom lane aswel.
- Gain a lot of items, become more powerfull and dont be to reckless.
-< AND YOU WILL RULE >- :D
