Opening Que

Some of you might know me as Durkaa Durka.

Make this my 6th guide..

I will be updating it frequently. I am busy playing while I type the guide so I will post a little early, but its not finished on the Explination part yet.

Pool of souls

Welcome to my guide as nocturne the soul stealer. ;)
Nocturne is an AMAZING Champ..
I love how his Ultimate and his nuke both get bonus with damage, because they are so fun to build!

You will be out there tearing kids up making them wish they were your friend!

This guide is going to go into a detail on why we choose what we do for situations, and hopefully you will be as successful as I am.

Runes that trigger his passive!

I start my rune page off with Marks of Armor Pen. He does a lot of stardard attacks so this is a great way to boost the damage capability.

Second is going to be Seals of Clarity.This helps greatly with the amount of mana he might be lacking expecially early game.

Now the rest of the rune build is designed for his passive, and that is AS.
Glyphs of Alarcrity.

& then Quintessense of Alarcrity also.

Yes Masteries are Legit.

You are probably wondering why I have not made this a mastery of AD?
Let me explain...

We are just putting some into offense because the rest of that will be taken care of with our items and runes. He lacks mana and its great to also go 9/0/21 on him if you really feel you need the mana. But his early game is effected a lot by this materies setup.

The idea of your Dustbringer makes you faster and stronger while in the trail. That is bonus enough for early game. Would you rather have 5% extra damage, or would you rather get that Duskbringer more often? See where I am going with this?

I start off with Boots so you have mobility right away. Its will give you decent AS later and its just a cheap 500 to finish the shoes. Early movement is the difference in life and death.

Madreds Bloodrazor is nice because it gives you AS Damage a whopping 4% of their health in damage on every hit..
This is a mid to late game item. It takes awhile to get your hands on, but all the items of purchase go right alone side with his abilities.

I buy me a Vampiric scepter because it helps you with survivability and its soon to be turned into a decent life steal item later... The Bloodthirster!

The B.F. Sword.. Because if you don't then your going to start lackign in damage output.
Soon you will make some decent AS and ARP out of this. Hence The Black Infinity Edge.

Phantom Dancer makes your Zeal look like a *****..
This just is the RIODS to your build.. Now you can chase down faster crit harder, and of course attack faster..

The Bloodthirster is going to enhance your Crits more because your adding damage and that stacks with the Infinty Edge. Your going to get more life steal..
Let me just say this is a great way to finish up the game..

Infinity Edge.. By the time you own this weapon if you get this far you should be hurting them so bad they dont wanna even leave their base.. Make your crits amazing here out.

Bilgewater Cutlas is a great early game item. This is going to give you life steal, damage and you can click it to activate its slow.

Hextech Revolver is the next item because your "Unspeakable Horror" Revolves around AP.

Hextech Gunblade! This is where the fun begins. You can now combine the items for this and you have more space to shop, and everything you do now will heal you for a portion. It will offer you amazing damage, spell vamp, lifesteal, and AP! Which has been lacking most in this guide.. Actually a great way to boost your Unspeakable Horror

Skill Sequence

This was by far the hardest one to figure out. They said in the spotlight to max out his Duskbringer first. Well I feel that is true, but this just doesn't cut it if hes missing the rest of his abilties because you just keeping getting the same one first.
He is hard to master but I think its best to keep all his abilities about the same speed all game. You will come to see that he uses them all so much that its just pointless to solo max his Duskbringer before the rest are even close..

DuskbringerThis is like a temperary buff he gets every short few seconds. Basicaly you will get more speed and damage every time you hit someone, but you must make sure your in the path itself. It also stacks with AD

Unspeakable HorrorThis is such a great ability possibly one of the best ones you have.
This will have then fleeing like a ***** because your doing DOT and stunning them not to mention you can auto attack during the spell! Jesus thats great! :)

ParanoiaThis is so freaking cool! You flash at lightning speeds to an enemy dealing damage, it stacks with his AD.

Shroud of DarknessThis will be the difference in life and death for some of you. The fact that you can just press this before you get ulted is great. It blocks a summoner spell no matter which spell it is. Often times I will run into Jarvan, or someone who thinks they will ult me (Including Nocturne's) I just press this ability and they did a pointless spell..
Its passive will help you farm a good amoutn.
