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.
Turns out this guide isn't as Hybrid as you expect. It's a lot more on the Ability Power/Magic side. I wont be going as in-depth as almost all the other guides made by our beloved members here on MOBAFire, due to this is my second guide and am still a beginner. Please give this guide some thought and help me out on improving it! Updated regularly :)
Magic Penetration and Ability Power. Any alternative can be used. If you want more of a Hybrid Shaco, you could go for Attack Speed and Critical Chance/Damage if wanted.
Just a basic general rune build.
Flash and Exhaust, another jump through wall ability/catch up and Exhaust to slow down. Basic chasing spells.
I made it to the beginning of the Rabadon's Deathcap ( Blasting Wand), then the game ended. Far as I ever got.
^^ This was my first game with this build, never even got to finish it.
Doran's Shield - Basic startin item, giving health to get an edge beginning game. Giving you a chance to live longer and possibly give you the little health that borderlines your death.
Sorcerer's Shoes - I would go with these over the Ionian boots most of the time, especially when the enemy team has say, a Soraka. Magic Penetration would give you the upper edge. But if you want your CDR more than MP than go ahead.
Banshee's Veil - Great item when dealing with enemy Mages, completely ridding Malzahar of his ult suppress. Plus Health and Mana
Trinity Force - To make up for the lack of any "Hyrbid" personalities in the guide: AD, AS, Crit, etc..
Rabadon's Deathcap - Now this is a very luxurious item that is an ESSENTIAL. Increases Ability Power massively. Great for your Two-Shiv Poison which damage includes %100 of AP.
Rylai's Crystal Scepter - Now this is a late game item because you already have your Damage Output covered. Health saves lives, preferably, YOUR LIFE. You could also switch it out with a Void Staff if the enemy is stacking armor, maybe they have a Mordekaiser, upping your Ability Power and gives more Magic Penetration combined with the shoes.
So this is what you should end up with this:
With your Jack In The Box ability, farming is a piece of cake. Think of it as throwing a cake on the ground, hiding it under some leaves, and having it pop up. Everyone around it will be surprised! The cake will serve itself by throwing it at enemies, causing damage at the same time. Every enemy will want the cake, so they focus it more.
Like that little commentary up there? but the Jack In The Box is a major crowd control ability, an AoE. Causing aggro focusing the fire away from you and also attacking minions at the same time.
Hallucinate is also a great AoE, helping you farm minions, also focusing some fire away from you. Plus, after a while, he blows up! Dealing damage to all enemies in the area.
Pissing the Enemy off with Jack
Jack in the Box? More like Jack in the Bush. Be like teemo and lay those babies out all over the area, especially in bushes. A quarter of your kills will come from them due to low health enemy champs secluding themselves in the bushes to hide. Little do they know, instead of hiding they will die. Fun tool to piss people the **** off.
Hope you liked this little build/guide I put together. Instead of down-voting my guide, maybe you can give me some constructive criticism. Thank you for taking the time to read this :)
Thank you The_Nameless_Bard for the Banners. They look great!
