Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
please, remember that the alteration of the build is ABSOLUTELY necessary. While the original is a good build, it is very dependent on going against DPS/AD. While if you going against a...Veigar, your very undercut. I say Aegis in the beginning, because the of versatility, and team benefit. But thornmail, might be useless. OKAYYYY, so the Mejai's...your all confused at this point, i know...*huffs*
Mejai's is simply for your W(shield). If your doing swimmingly, then 20 stack with lower your CD's by 15% and your shield will actual extremely help! The brutalizers CD, combined with 20 stacks. will make your shield frequent. and powerful....remember if going against AP, GET GET GET abyssal scepter! the AP, and the magic resist, make it a must have... while increasing, your shield..once again, remember that your shield, is the basis on living, while the side items, and for your Q...The doran's is for early damage...you will need a couple kills...TO get your items fast, which is always necessity.
As far as play style, i love to get E first...only for the ability to do 100 damage every time(mostly). level 1 Q, seems to be sort of hard to hit with...while E is not...SO i sacrifice a lot of damage, for the ability to KNOW my damage. level 2...your fine. BUT i will say that, not getting Q, has made me lose "first blood," once or twice... It comes to preference in this situation.
