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 build is meant for some mean damage and lifesteal to boot. I guarantee that you can take WW or any other hero at end game. I recommend going heavy on your enrage due to the good amount of damage you can gain with your crits, and that is what this build is all about. Play it safe until you get you stun and make sure to not get harassed too much as you do not have any potions and rely on your hp regen until level 6. Once you have your first zeal you can easily jungle if you do not feel like laning. This setup really picks up around level 13, that is when I recommend some serious ganking, start off with your stun, hit your ultimate and watch as their hp melts away under your massive crits and you suck their hp away with your axe. I have never lost a game after getting my second phantom with another bf sword. You will be indestructible 1v1 end game as long as you have your ultimate ready. You can use ionian boots if you want some faster ganks. Enjoy, I really enjoy this build and have found that I can get upwards to 30 kills a game if I stay away from the grave. Ganking is a must with this build if you want to earn enough money near the end of the game, you can also solo dragon easily and probably 2 man baron with your ult. All the best! Haytearah
For my SS, I got with Exhaust and Ghost. They are both great for a gank if you need to chase someone down to stun them and finish them off, and are equally good for running away if you are getting ganked yourself.
Usually when I set up a gank, I will come from bot and wait in the bushes in mid. I find that middle needs ganked more than any other lane due to the increase in xp the player gets due to being solo. Coordinate with your middle man and wait till your opponent passes somewhat past the middle line, hit your ghost, run in behind them, stun, hit your ult, and enjoy as they are seriously ****ed at this point. If they are quick to run, then exhaust them and have your allies help. Teaming with blitzcrank is good if you can get someone that is good at his hand cannon, so he can grab and you can stun which = rape.
Pros / Cons
High attack speed and close to 1k crits around level 16.
Amazing Lifesteal(better than ww)
Harder to keep alive while ultimate is on cooldown
Being overwhelmed with stuns leads to a early grave, as it does with any hero
Easy to die when being chased by more than 1 hero
Has a harder time with ranged(like tristana)
Alright, apparently I need 5k words so this section isn't really important, just covering my ***. So to recap. This is basically a good ganking and farming guide. If you want to be the person on the score recap page to have the most kills in the game, then this is your guide. This build leads to some wicked attack speed throughout the game, which is key when paired with Sion's lifesteal skill. Let us not forget the the high crits you will have endgame due to runes/masteries and items. With this build, I end up carrying the team and being the go to guy for all the action in the game. I am the one to get the ace and still have full hp from Sion's amazing lifesteal and end up leading the way in the final push to the nexus. With this build, I always end up being the tank for any Baron kills also. When you follow this guide correctly and end up winning with +20 kills at the end of the game, it feels good man. I will throw this in also, around level 10 or so, I end up jungling a lot and I usually step out to help a lane that is getting over run, to help setup a gank to ensure no one on the other team is getting over fed. Alright since I have to hit a letter limit for this guide the rest will be spam. sadfhioudi asasdfb i ds fasnfdiasdfijs aonis aofhj soajfosf oasdf oaf asdkf asdnfoia fijas fioasdjfiajsofijoasjdfisjadofji i oj joi jo jo jo jo jo jhyuighsdbauighdfohjfsodhoisah u h ho hodh h ih isdb fd fiahjsodfi dif aso fdsa fa sdf a fa sdf as df asdf as f as f ds fas greg erj giqg re qg
