Not Updated For Current Season
Hai there, this is my first build so take it easy on the comments beacause i get easily sad and you don't want that do you? OKI DOKI lets begin
first some pros and cons
a nuke that can take 1/3 of a enemys health earlygame.
nice escape abilities (on the hunt, and spell shield).
easy to kill creepwaves with.
a nice sololaner if someone decides to jungle.
can solo 2 ppl.
cant really go middle lane unless your against a melee champion, because its so easy to dodge the boomerangs as a ranged champ.
a little bit squishy.
you start off with the dorans ring and a health potion so that you can spam boomerangs and not die so easily.
next time you get to the base you should get boots of mobility and the first item for starks favor.
the second time you go to shop you can either finnish your starks favor or buy a bloodthirster, this totally depends on how good you are at farming. so if you have money for bf sword buy it and then upgrade it to a bloodthirster.
after that you just finnish your starks favor and then go for the madreds and phantom.
if you feel like getting lizard/golem buff earlygame you can get madreds razors after emble of valor so that you get the buffs faster and easier.
i went 9/0/21 because the manaregen is so important for sivir, with that and dorans ring you can harras so hard and maybe get a kill or force the enemy to back. the spell and summonerspell cooldownreductions are also awesome for getting more kills faster.
ignite is good for getting low hp escapers killed.
flash helps you to get in range for your boomerang and ignite, also good for escapeing from the enemies and make the enemies lose focus on you.
Now that we are done with that we can start with the laning part.
THE LANING PART!
you should always take the sololane if someone goes jungle because you can totally own that lane. I wouldn't go mid cause you can easily get raped if your oppenent is good at dodging your boomerangs. Its safer to go to a lane because you can control lanes so easily because of your constant harrasing abilities.
So you start off buying your items and walk to the lane, then you begin autoattacking and when the creep is low on health you wait for it to go low enough and then lasthit it. But you cant really lasthit if you'r not controlling the lane. so you have to harrass them once in a while with your boomerang blade and autoattacks. if you harrass them enough with your teammate you should totally have lanecontrol and get some good cashflow.
ofcourse if a enemy drops low enough you can just flash, ignit, and boomerang blade when they are running away(easier to hit). if the other enemy in the lane trys to kill you while you are trying to kill the other enemy you should easily get away useing spellshield and if needed ulti. When you get lanecontrol you pretty much just farm as long as you can and gank if you feel like it. And ofcourse if your team feels like pushing mid or something you go with them.
now some basic sivirtips.
you gotta look at how your enemies are moveing and toss your boomerang in their moving direction. if possible do not toss through minionwaves because it deals less dmg. if the enemy is running from you toss the boomerang infront of him not on him.
ppl that have spells that don't fly so fast in the air e.g. taric, sion,morgana are nice ppl to block spells from. its as simple as this, when you see a spell in the air press E. but just do this if you know if will do srs dmg to you, for example if you are at your tower and taric tosses a random longrange stun you dont need to block it.
in teamfights you should pop your ulti in the beginning so that everyone gets the buff and after that just stay behind autoattacking and nukeing. if you get focused use spellshield and flash into a bush/over a wall/ or just away from the battle and get back in and start autoatatcking and nuking.
