Hi guys, this is my 1st guide and its a Draven guide. I hope u enjoy the build, i sure do. Its AD Offensive BUILD with dat Guardian Angel DEF. Against a balanced enemy team. If u want even alittlebit TANK Draven, dont look here. GUIDE IS IN PROGRESSION STILL!
NOT DRAVEN, DRAAEAVEN!
Quints: ARMOR PENETRATION & ATTACK SPEED = AWESOME. Arm. Penetr. Means more DMG, and attack speed is whats up with AD Carries.
Glyphs: Dat damage, pure AD. U need more early DMG than later on with Might glyphs. Atleast usually.
Seals: Some Def to the build, HP! We will need it. With mastery [Veteran's Scars] u will have nice start HP.
Marks: Attack Speed. What to say, i love Attack Speed. UP DAT DPS!
- [Brute Force] For that pure AD, more DAMAGE!
- [Butcher] ALOT Easier farming!
- [Alacrity] Dat attack speed! DPS!
- [Sorcery] For the CD, not so important on AD but u get more spamability on your abilities.
- [Weapon Expertise] More Arm. Penetr? MOAR DAMAAAGE! :)
- [Demolitionist] Easier time destroying turrets.
- [Vampirism] Lifesteal, heals you when you auto attack. Survivability!
- [Sunder] EVEN MORE! Armor Penetr. DAMAGE. Simple!
- [Executioner] Dat squishy tryina get away? Not going to happen!
- [Hardiness] Soaks up AD damage. Defense.
- [Resistance] Soaks up AP damage. Defense.
- [Durability] Leading to [Veteran's Scars] HIT POINTS. DEFENSE.
[Boots of Speed] + [Health Potion] + [Mana Potion]
Movement Speed because Draven is slow, 305 base MS. Heath and Mana potion for lane sustain. Many people grap x3 Health but i like to have some mana in my pocket. It comes in handy early game if u like to use your abilities somewhat often! Abit money saved not picking 3rd pot, u can buy 3rd pot if u want.
I dont like to start with this because Draven needs the MS but if u want to be super aggressive this can work! +3 Lifesteal means Sustain, 10 AD means Damage and 120 HP means Survivability. U CAN stack 2-4 of these bad boys. 2 Is a good amount, MAX 4.
First recall to Base
If u didn't start with doran's, buy one now and upgrade your boots to Berserkers Greaves.
If u started out with a Blade, buy Berserkers Greaves and Vampiric Scepter.
CORE OF THE BUILD
This screams DMG, so pick it. Also crits=guarantee some Bleed DMG. Build from recipe, atleast BF Sword.
Crazy attack speed buff, Crit Chance and MOVEMENT SPEED for the slow base MS of Draven. Build from recipe, atleast Zeal.
AWESOME DEF ITEM! These days there is usually more AD enemies than AP. If the enemy team is for example 3 AD 2 AP. THIS is JUST ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY in that case. 68 Armor Great amount to soak AD Damage. 38 MR Good enough amount to soak up AP Damage. PASSIVE Is quite nice if u die in 2v2 and you're friend kills the other enemy, and u die. Then u get revived and kill the other enemy too! BUT This revive can some times just get u killed again. U get revived and enemies can kill you fast again.
SELL THE [Doran's Blade] ('s) ATLEAST BY THIS POINT.
LAST ITEM PICKS
Now u will build that Bloody! Fully stacked it gives u crazy AD and Lifesteal. THIS DOESN'T STACK ONLY FROM Champion kills, farm minions for stacks! And without stacks already very good item.
Ok, if u still playing pick this bad boy up to get the last blowing power for a VICTORY!
Armor Penetration, now u have A TON OF ARMOR PENETR! Also gives somewhat of a buff to AD.
- I dont max one skill always first, i spend points with analyzing what i need ATM.
- But generally people max Spinning Axe first, its a good idea.
- SO yeah just build what u like, Spinning Axe is good to max but all is up to what you need!
With [Summoner's Resolve] you should pick Heal, it increases health restored. This skill really beats ignite because u can just bait enemy thinking they can kill you, and then you heal. NOPE!
Also lane sustain and in team fights heals allies too.
And pick Flash, its great for escaping (over walls too) and chasing. You really don't need Ghost because u have a built in Ghost. :)
If you REALLY FANCY Ignite u CAN pick it, also if u REALLLYYYY love Ghost. But Those are the best picks for you.
End of Guide
Thank you for reading! I hope you have a GREAT TIME With Draven! I really enjoy playing Draven, my favorite AD Carry. And like always, constructive criticism is welcome but please don't hate on me too much. My 1st guide.
NOT DRAVEN, DRAAAAAVEN!
