Introduction to the nightmare

Its the first build of me, featuring NOCTURNE - The Eternal Nightmare

this build isn't for your claps... i just wanted to share my play style with you


Guide Top

Runes of the Fear

i use mostly armor penetration and some defense runes, i think its not very important, but runes are givin some advenrage to you
Greater Mark of Desolation - arp is good from early to late game
Greater Seal of vitality - masteries + seals + banshee's veil = ~2500 hp
Greater Glyph of Warding - good for early game
with banshee's veil, you will have ~120 magic resistance
Greater Quintessence of Desolation - more arp more damage


Guide Top

Items for the real Terror

Boots of Speed
Health Potion x3
Mana Potion
with Duskbringer you will have amazing movement at level 1, its giving first blood advantage
potions will help you to stay in lane

Masteries

21/9/0 is enough to early game advantage

Offense tree :
- ad
- 10% arp, 10 arp
- 3% lifesteal
- crit chance and damage
- executioner

with marks and quintessences, you have 15+10+10 = 35 armor penetration (+10% penetration) at level 1

Defense tree :
- armor
- per level hp
- 30 hp

with seals and glyphs, you have 46 magic resist. at level 1, and you have 280 health bonus at level 18

Pros / Cons

PROS :
Nocturne
- 's all skills usable for offense or defense
- is a good jungler
- is a good dps for team
- have great chase skills
- good farmer
- have great escape skill if you can use Shroud of Darkness
- is the eternal nightmare
- greatest skins IMO

CONS :
Nocturne
- isn't the best jungler or dps
- focused first
- isn't effective without Duskbringer


Guide Top

Summoner Spells

you can feel free at this part

good spells :
- Flash
greatest escape skill
- Exhaust
it's working awesome with Duskbringer
- Ignite
anti heal spell ( its working against lifesteal, spell vamp, health reg., any heal.... )
- Ghost
its like exhaust (for chasing or escaping) you can escape from 5 people, but exhaust better on 1v1, so its your choice
- Heal
heal is always good
- Smite
for faster jungle
- Cleanse
anti cc, bb malzahar's ulti



not good
- clairvoyance
for supports
- clarity
for mages
- fortify
for tanks
- rally
no one use this....
- teleport
there are better choices
- revive
may be.... but..... no


Guide Top

Farming with the Umbra Blades

Duskbringer + Umbra Blades = bb minion waves
use your Duskbringer to incoming minions, then hit the middle minion, minions now have 10% hp or haven't


Guide Top

Unique Skills of the Darkness

what is the Paranoia ?
its like a nightmare, but you are awake.....
this name is the best telling you what this ulti means
when u used your ulti, everyone will be uneasy... because the dark is everywhere, and they cant see their teammates, so they are thinking "who is nocturne's victim ?"
this is a real terror for them

Paranoia is a good ultimate with Executioner mastery (it was a great ulti, but RIOT nerfed it, still useful) you will use your ulti to escaping enemy (enemy with low health) Executioner is giving you more damage to targets below 40% health
