Why Does This Build Work?

The key to this build is utilizing armor penetration to annihilate squishy targets. Nocturne can easily one-shot anyone not building armor. The three serrated (Serrated Nocturne) dirk items are Ghostblade, Maw, and Duskblade, which give a total of 40 flat armor penetration. Plus the armor penetration runes (19.2 armor pen), we have a total of 59.2 armor penetration. You will most likely have the three armor penetration items by level 11, but to put this in perspective, Lucian has 50.4 base armor at level 11. Once he reaches level 14, he will have 60.3 base armor, but that mid-game power spike from the three armor pen items is insane, reducing the enemy ADC's armor to 0 for a clean one-shot (the 3 core items still give 190 AD, which is a ton). Also, Lucian has pretty high base armor for an ADC. Using this example, it is pretty clear to see the power that Serrated Nocturne provides, early, mid, and late game.
