Introduction

Hi there. Your Probably looking at this build cause you wanna try out or are thinking about using/getting Nocturne. Well you came to the right place. In this guide i will try to explain in detail how to use Nocturne and what items to buy in what order, etc. I would highly recommend owning this champion as one of the top 10-15 useful, great power and jungling offensive champs. He's my main since a little after i started playing LoL about 2-3 weeks after he came out. Here we go!

Runes

Runes I would say always have for Nocturne are: Greater Marks of Desolation, Greater Seals of Alacrity, Greater Glyphs of Alacrity, and Greater Quintessences of Desolation.
That or switch Seals to Greater Seals of Resilience(Flat armour) for jungling and Greater Glyphs of Shielding(magic def goes up by lvls) for survivability and jungling too.
Below is other runes you can have options with.




First off reason for runes; Your Marks and Quints will always be Runes of Desolation. Or Armour Penetration. This is necessary for Most all ad champs.
Now for <p style="color:#FFFF00">Seals</p> and <p style="color:#0000FF">Glyphs</p>, you can change it up depending upon how you like to use your champions, and what you have for runes.
<p style="color:#FFFF00">Seals</p> I recommend using Greater Seal of Alacrity(atk speed), for when im not jungling, or trying to be as offensive as possible. It fits in with Nocturne's Passive quite nicely. Other seals to give thought too are; Greater Seals of: Resilience(Flat armour for jungle) Strength(atk damg.) Evasion(dodge runes plus getting ninja tabias boots can actually be used) Fortitude(hp runes for minor survivability) and also the crit chance or damg.
<p style="color:#0000FF">Glyphs</p> I recommend using Greater Glyphs of Alacrity(atk speed) to go along with your Seals. Once again great for Noc's passive.

Items

Nocturne is made from the items you give him. There is not only one build for Nocturne. There In fact is many many different builds. Im going to try to teach and explain what items you should build at what times and what your main core build is.
