Introduction

This is my first ever guide on MOBAFIRE so forgive me if I miss out on some details and feel free to give contructive criticisms and comments!
This guide will show you how to dominate with Nocturne 1vs1 as well as ganking.
I mainly play on Summoner's Rift and lane with a ranged character.
Thanks to Searz for the awesome guide format! You can find it here.

Summoner Spells


Flash
Flash is a great skill for just about everything. You can both chase and escape with it.
TIP: When running away, try to Flash to the other side of a wall if possible. It makes for a great getaway.

Heal
Many people would disagree with using Heal, but it has saved my life countless time through 1vs1 fights, ganks and turret-dives. Heal + Flash + Paranoia makes for great turret-dive kills. If you still oppose heal, then...

Ignite
Ignite is a great alternative to Heal. Finish off near-dead runners/turret-huggers with it and have fun setting people on fire.

Skill Sequence

The reason why Shroud of Darkness should be your first skill is because of its awesome passive. Its attack speed boost + Doran's Blade makes for a formidable early laner.
Then Q>E>Q>E continously except to put points into Paranoia whenever it is available.
Wait til Duskbringer and Unspeakable Horror is maxed out to put more points into Shroud of Darkness.
This makes for a high-damage combo; Q into your victim, W, then E. If they start running again, R to finish.

Items

is an awesome starting item; it gives health, attack and lifesteal for you to get the first kill with.

If you're getting hammered by your DMG/DPS opponents, get .
They'll kill themselves.

Tips

If you're running with low health from someone, near minions, and Umbra Blades is ready, hit the minion in the centre of the swarm for a great health boost. It can give massive amounts of health late if used correctly.
