Singed Build Guide by l0lbluewaffle
Mastery Tree Is Outdated
WARNING: These masteries are still using the old tree and have not been updated to the new tree by the guide author. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
Welcome to my build.
I have been playingfor a while now (since beta) and as most all know Singed is a very powerful top lane, and this brings to my attention that everybody says that " Rod of Ages is the best item ever for Singed."
No I'm not saying that Rod of Ages is bad item, in fact would be my favorite item if it gave you the full stats whenever you buy it, but it takes 10 min after you buy it to become its full potential and how I build Singed the item only becomes powerful 40 to 50 min. in the game. I don't know about you, but by that time it doesn't do as much as is it should.
Pros to Rod of Ages
Cons to Rod of Ages
Support Singed is how I like to play my balding friend.
Runes and Masteries.
For both Runes and masteries I would say it comes down to personal preference on what you like, however I prefer tank Runes with magic penetration marks and movement speed Quintessences and for masteries to go 9, 21, 0 for Max early tank potential and magic penetration for your Poison Trail. If you are wondering about 3 in
and not 3 in
, here is my reasoning. When you play singed you will most likely be assisting and killing, but I say don't try to take the kill money whenever it is possible for the carry of your team to get it. So what ever gold you get from the assist + the 24 bonus. gold per kill. For example...(this is a random singed signature I found on Mobafire)
Now if this singed had 3 in Mercenary he would have a bonus 768 gold just from the 3 in Mercenary . Now if you look at Enlightenment and it "FULL POTENTIAL" like the Rod of Ages 8.1% CDR looks great, but again full potential is at lvl 18. So with some simple math we do the .45(L) (L being level) so at level 11 you have 5% CDR. With that at level 11 Mega Adhesive Fling both lose a WHOLE second (with rounding of course), and Insanity Potion loses 5 second which isn't much. And besides if cool downs are an issue then your not playing singed right(just like mana).
The swiftness quintessence give you 4.5% movement speed in total which allows you to be faster than anybody you have to lane against allowing you to catch them and Fling them into your Poison Trail or to gank when needed faster.
Again mainly this build is for item order and the strong belief in not using Rod of Ages. Not because I want to be the one who doesn't like Rod of Ages, but because it is an item that you must build first for it to be good, so it doesn’t allow you to build fast enough for me.
The main part of the Build is items and item order.
How I play Singed is a top lane Minion farmer that can keep back and under farm every melee champion and most ranged champions. I would say that the best first item you can get with Singed is a Philosopher's Stone for 2 reasons:
Now it seems like I'm being hypocritical because this build is more for later like a Rod of Ages, but the gold items such as Philosopher's Stone and Kage's Lucky Pick do give stats that help you farm up early and possibly kill people earlier. So in conclusion the main point of this build is to help your early and become fully built almost twice as fast as normal, while helping your team by slowing people in team fights early.
So after you get your gold items of the way and whatever boots you feel like such as Boots of Swiftness or Sorcerer's Shoes, you will want to go onto a build depending on how the game is turning out. If you are still top lane and the lanes are really moving anywhere and no team fights have broken out in the game then depending on the lane against you might want to consider a Abyssal Scepter or a Chain Vest.
But as most of us know about that part of the game people are moving around and team fights or even ganks start happening. By that time you might want to think about building a Rylai's Crystal Scepter. I would say mostly other items are up to you what you want to build because your play style is different than mine but after I get a least a Negatron Cloak, Chain Vest and a Rylai's Crystal Scepter I like getting more health when being the tank on the team. A Warmog's Armor will give you a big boost in health and health regenerate, which allows you to be way more durable against mages especially and the Chain Vest with your health will allow you to be durable against DPS is to.
There although situations however that a Rabadon's Deathcap can be better in team fights when plain Singed. These situations usually are when your team is mainly high AD and/or very durable. This will increase your damage output majorly and for other items have or he made you very durable, but this only works when you have multiple tanks or they don't have very much magic resistance.
Skill Sequence explanation and SummonerSpells
This further guide is all based around personal preference and how the game is going.
There are however a few things you can say about Singed's skills and how your Summoner Spells can work towards them.
1.)It gives 256 HP with the 1025 this build has and if you go a heavy Mana build you get a bonus 750 HP from the 3000 Mana you get because the ratio is only 25%.
2.)When was the last time someone said "if only this singed had less Mana I would kill him." in other words skills make singed great, so don't worry to much about his passive.
• the mana cost does not increase per level and the 1 second cooldown doesn't move at all.
• The ability power ratio on it is 25% and doesn't go up or down which is normal for most champions.
• Leaving this ability on will drain your mana very fast and it does not increase damage output, so it is just as effective to tap this ability and leave small clouds instead of a long trail.
• One of the most important things about this ability is actually DOT and applies 15% slow with a Rylai's Crystal Scepter while they're poisoned instead of while they're in the trail.
• This ability can also be very useful for helping you/allies for escaping.
• You will get an assist for every enemy slowed by it. So before an enemy dies it can be a good idea to throw goo on them.
• This will also allow you to hold an enemy where you would like when combined with Fling.
• This is also great for a burst of damage as it is a 300 base with 100% AP ratio.
• Since people know Singed has this skill so this will keep some people away from your tower to prevent from being put under your tower.
• Insanity Potion combined with your durability and Philosopher's Stone will keep you in lane a long time.
• Use this to start team fights because of the movement speed, AP boost, CC reduction and the extra durability.
• This skill goes on cool down as soon as you activate it. So the cool down when your not buffed is really 75 seconds base.
• All-round I personally have this skill on cool down constantly.
As I stated before this is a build for obtaining a full build in the mid game before other people.
I will be posting videos later to my YouTube Channel with me playing singed or other champions along with my friend. There will be commentary and funny moments.
to watch go to:
Vote up if you want to break the meta singed build with ROA because it takes to long.
I will keep this build ideal for a long time.
Oh and thanks to my friend Radda Sauce for being a duo queue partner who helped me with this build for 2 years now.
