A guide to your Ashe
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 here on MobaFire so i'm sorry if i have some minor errors in this guide. This guide is aimed at people new to ashe or just want to know how to play here better, i've played her alot, and i mostly play ADC or TOP lane in ranked.
Also please tell me what you think of this guide,.
What will i cover?
I will try to cover as much as possible, and i will try to make it easy and smooth, because Ashe is a perfect champion for those who have just started playing or want to get into ADC'ing.
Pros / Cons
*Gets more gold with E passive
*Can get vision with E
*Low burst damage
*No escape abilitiess
These runes are pointed at Survivability and early damage.
9x Greater Mark of Attack Damage For early AD
9x Greater Seal of Armor For survivability
9x Greater Glyph of Magic Resist For survivability
3x Greater Quint of Attack Damage For early AD
I'm also gonna point out that you can switch out AD marks against Armor penetration marks, but i chose to take AD>ArmorPen runes because of the masteries and armor pen items in the game.
In Early game you really need to get your AD up + get some life steal for sustain, so grabbing doran's and vampric scepter is almost a must.
Mid game really depends on how you did early game with creep slains (and/or) kills.
Rushing infinity edge is probably the best on Ashe, even though rushing BloodThirster can be successfull. And grab that Phantom dancer for movement + crit
Now it's your time to shine, get your last damage items and some survivability ( example : Bloodthirster/infinity edge depending on what you tok first, and Guardian angel)
*Why get Phantom Dancer after Infinity Edge and not some other damage item?
Well, with the Infinity Edge Ashe does a lot of damage, but her attack speed is really slow, you need more attack speed to vamp up your DPS ( Damage per second )and is a great source for mobility to get to/away from enemies.
*Black Cleaver or Last Whisper?
Depends alot on the enemy team, if the enemy team is stacking armour you should grab Last Whisper. If the enemy have alot of "squishy" DPS or casters, negate their armour with The Black Cleaver
Your skill sequence depends alot on how good you are farming minions in early/mid game.
For people that can farm minions good, should max E<Q after W, like this:
People that are bad at farming minion and have really low CS ( creep slain ) around the 20 minute mark should take Q>E after W, like this:
W Should always be maxed first, because that's your main ( and almost only ) damage ability, and it does a AoE slow.
Easy way to get kills and reduce healing.
Other good Summoner Spells
if you don't have flash, this is recommended.
Many players use this, and it's a good way to clear CC from your champ.
i don't really recommend this but i've seen success with it.
Not really needed because Ashe have a passive slow with her Q.
not needed because of Ashe's E.
Let your support have this, not you.
I'n my opinion this summoner spell is useless.
Early game you should be focusing getting your CS ( creep slain ) and poke your enemy adc so he doesn't get hes CS, many new players usually underestimate CS or doesn't even care about it, but it's really important.
A little trick is if you start at blue team, you can go take the golems, which will give you bonus gold and half a level, so you will have a big advantage on your enemys, but be aware, good players will also try to counter this.
Mid Game is your time to start shining, after you've grabbed Infinity Edge you should be able to have massive damage, if the lane phase is kinda over, try to grab every kill you can, you need it for the late game.
Late Game is the time when ADC shines.
ADC plays one of the most important roles in the game, you will do massive damage on the squishy enemies, remember, do NOT target the tank, go for the guys that stand in the back, their ADC is really important to get down, & after taking their ADC, go for their APC, and if successfull the teamfight is won.
As an ADC late game, one hit is a achivement itself.
So, this guide has come to an end.
i'm really grateful for constructive feedback & i'm sorry that i might have some grammar mistakes & the guide might not be that smooth, but thanks for reading it and i hope you've learned somthing.
i will probably improve this guide as i get more experienced making guides in the future.
