Threats to Nocturne with this build
|Amumu||You can bait him 1v1 if he tries to fight you early on .|
|Fiddlesticks||If he tries to 1v1 you, just w his q and usually what they do is q then e then w, so try to w his fear and just e him right after to stop his w and then he will try to run away form you, and then you can chase him by following your q, but don't chase him so deep in the jg, be careful.|
About Nocturne's combo and some stuff
They are 2 combos to do with Nocturne: R + Q + E + W (you ult then click the right target you want, but make sure that target is in your ult range. Nocturne's ult range : 2000 / 2750 / 3500).
((I will write some information in the future about how you gank and when you gank, what you should do in teamfight .))
The second combo is: Q + R + Q + E + W (When you first Q make sure to wait 3-4 seconds before you use your ult, just to make sure your Q comes up again after you ult. the reason why you Q first before you ult, to give you an extra damage on your ult) .
If someone chasing you,you can Q and E the target while your moving. And make sure your fear get him away(usually what they do while chasing you,and you'r E'ing them they will try to get back a bit, so they can dodge your fear, but remember that your Q gives you amount of movement speed so you can Q and E, and you will get away most of the time.
How to counter stealth champions such as?
It's simple just Q them if they try to go stealth your Q will follow them up for a couple seconds and you will know where they are and chasing them down, but remember they may try to joke you out by stop moving, so if they stop moving, your Q will stop following them. It also works with Leblanc's passive too, if you Q her and her passive popped out your Q still following her and the same thing, she might try to joke you out by stop moving .
Nocturne's next attacks are periodically enhanced, damaging surrounding enemies for 120% of his attack damage and healing himself for 10 / 18 / 26 per enemy hit.
Every basic attack reduces the cooldown by 1 second.

How to jungle with Nocturne
The better way to start is from the Krug untill the Gromp, for example:
I do recommend to smite the krug to get the buff which helps you a lot in the jungle.
The Red buff:
make sure to ward around the red buff just in case :
Scuttle Crab :
make sure to kill the Small raptores :
then go back and buy :
and then back to the jungle and do:
then the blue buff :
and last the Gromp :
How to gank as Noct
So when I hit level 3 , i always look for the gank top or mid most of the times, if the enemy team is pushing the lane thts mean u may gank, ganking bot lane sometimes is hard thts cuz the cc they have and how much strong they are such as Ashe and Braum, but once u 6 it shuld be an easy gank . Also, if ur top or mid is pushing their lanes try to be around them for the counter gank .
