Introducing Swiggity Swag Sivir [SSS], myself and the creation of it.
Also: There won't be a masteries chapter due to the masteries being pretty random but hey, they worked.
Hello, my name is MockSniFFy (SwiggitySwootySivir on here). I play League casually with around 5-8 other friends. We try out stupid things and sometimes those stupid things work and they get left in the shadows but not SSS.
As a starter I'll say where SSS originated from and the idea behind it. Surely a lot of people already have already heard of the saying/picture "Swiggity Swooty I'm coming for that Booty", right? Take a five man pre-made who have nothing better to do and this image stuck in their head. Me and 4 other friends picked a lane each, on Summoner's Rift and used the random feature during champion selection. Each of us rolled 3 times, I picked jungle and the game picked Sivir for me. I insta locked as did the others and immediately regretted it... that is, until I got first blood during an invade.
Me and my mid-laner who was playing Annie retreated back to blue buff and he helped me take it. I almost died to blue buff but I honestly didn't want another defeat in my match history so I grew a back-bone and used 2 Health Potions. That's 2 down 2 more left and a handy Mana Potion which comes in later. After struggling to get to level 3 I proceeded to gank the squishest lane at the moment which was bottom, being Ashe and Zyra. Admittedly Sivir jungle has no CC and is practically useless in terms of ganking but that's where I came up with SSS. I stayed in the jungle taking wraiths, wolves, etc (the easiest camps) and struggling to take red buff which got me to level 6. As soon as I reached 6 I backed, buying a Spirit of the Elder Lizard and Mobility Boots.
I ran straight back to bot lane with my new ultimate, On the Hunt, not to gank but with objectives in mind. We pushed the tower quite quickly after killing the Ashe due to a successful Blitzcrank Rocket Grab.
The rest of my game isn't essentially important but may be explained bit by bit through-out the guide.
Runes - I'm no pro.
Explaining the "randomness" of my runes and why they worked for me.
Runes are essential to how you play anyone but trust me, for SSS you really do need them because otherwise, I have a hunch you would just die at blue buff. Now the reason I took:
Greater Glyph of Attack Damage
Greater Seal of Armor
Greater Mark of Armor
Greater Mark of Attack Damage
Greater Mark of Health
Greater Quintessence of Attack Damage
Greater Quintessence of Life Steal
1.)Sivir is extremely squishy but has a large damage output so taking the armor to secure her jungling and ganking potential.
2.) Due to her squishiness mentioned, the life steal is pretty much essential for sustaining against the buffs otherwise they would kill you.
3.) The health marks are not essential however and can be swapped out for more damage or alternatively 3 more armor marks.
Chances are if you showed this rune comp to a professional they'd puke in their mouth and would refuse to swallow it because it's that bad. I have no idea what runes work best but this is what I was using at the time and I carried so.... yeah. They are questionable, to be fair.
Items n Stuff
SSS is all about helping her team out in anyway, this is usually pushing, and taking objectives. This is why the following items are PURRFEEECT.
We'll start with the starting items:
Hunter's Machete is an obvious pick on a jungler. And the 4 Health Potion + the 1 Mana Potion are obviously for that sustain in the jungle.
Now onto the 2nd buy:
Rushing Spirit of the Elder Lizard is questionable as well as the Boots of Mobility but it just... it just works; in a very silly way. The Spirit of the Elder Lizard helps you to push the enemy lanes back to their tower when you're staying on a lane to push it and the Boots of Mobility are there for you to do a sly tactic which will be explained later on the team work section.
Finally, the core items on SSS are:
Blade of the Ruined King
The Black Cleaver or Spirit of the Elder Lizard
Boots of Mobility
Zephyr is for the essential attack speed with a side order of damage.
BotRK is to slow the enemy down while speeding you up (it's basically Mario Kart in Summoner's Rift).
Phantom Dancer is an obvious choice for an adc- I uh... I mean for SSS
SotEL can be swapped out late game for Black Cleaver but it is really up to you. Do you prefer a constant burn or armor shred?
Boots of Mobility is still yet to be explained later on in the team work chapter.
Youmuu's Ghostblade is basically the Bullet Bill of League. You'll be catching up to those enemies in no time, especially with On the Hunt.
I'll keep it very short and simple.
Your Boomerang Blade is potent in... "jungling"... and in the lane for pushing their waves back. You want to put a fair few points into this but that isn't the best part about Sivir. Oh no no no no, by far the best part about Sivir is the underestimated Spell Shield of her's. You don't really want to max this first but definitely pick up several points in it later on for constant sustain during a fight. And when I say constant oh boy do I mean constant. Have fun with that. Her w, Ricochet, is relatively unheard of when people talk about Sivir which is crazy because Sivir's W is bonkers because this is definitely a real beast in a team fight.
Her ult, On the Hunt, is known as pretty useless to the majority of the League community but it's a gem waiting to be uncovered because combined with a support getting Zeke's Herald.
Pros / Cons
1.) Amazing Harasser
2.) Isn't played often making her underestimated
3.) Easy as pie to learn
4.) Pax skin L0L
5.) Zones like a b*tch
6.) Counters cc with Spell Shield
1.) Hella squishy
2.) She pushes like a beast
3.) Is sorta ugly without a skin, not gonna lie.
4.) Meh range
5.) She can be countered by a lot of people
6.) Mana hungry
How You Work with Your Team
This is gonna be short and simple because 1.) I'm lazy and 2.) It doesn't NEED to be long
All you really wanna do as SSS try to sustain as best as you can in the jungle until 6. Don't be afraid to recall if you don't have the hp to take golems, red buff, etc. Once you're 6 go for the squishiest lane and do the literal meaning of "babysitting". You want to stay in lane as much as possible as push it out, using your ultimate to take the turret with ease. Bot lane is easiest with this because there's already and adc to assist but top lane can be easy also as your top laner can sometimes be very powerful like Darius or Nasus at pushing.
A nice little trick to do is to push bottom and then immediately go top and push that followed by all 5 people bum-rushing mid.
SSS is an overall good team member to have but can be boring to play. Make sure you play it with lots of good friends to have fun and nobody will read this guide anyway so I can say that I smell like poop. I think.
I honestly do think that SSS could work more than once and I'm willing to try it several times to prove so. Thanks for reading jack ***es.
Natha- MockSni- uh....
