In the items section:
Quoted:
If your enemies aren't stacking 2-3 armor items on multiple champions then armor isn't a necessary purchase yet, so you can move on to building a third crit item to maximize your DPS.
Should be "armor pen" or whatever I think.

What I really came for: what do you think about the new Blade of the Ruined King?

Whoops. Will be fixed soon™

Looks like a downgrade unless you're straight up rushing it to me. Time will tell.

Hey Vapora :D

1.
Quoted:
That's no problem for me at all, other than maybe once every 100 games where I accidentally click R instead of T and fire my ult into minions...

Oh dear, it happens to me like every 5th game :C

2. Cause of you I main Tristana :) I think I made her in 4 weeks from lvl 1 to lvl 7 :P Now I have 60k pts on her. I hope there'll be 1 million someday ;d But thank you :D

3. I'd really like to have a 1v1 against you. Maybe I am Bronze and you Master (hopefully Challenger next month <3), but I still want to play against you. Is it possible?

There's not really any point in 1v1'ing, you could learn from 100 1v1's maybe, but not just one. It'd be time consuming for no good reason for me to 1v1 everyone that asks sorry. :(

Hi, Vapora:D Ty for the great guide and colossal work you did. I need to say 'thanks' not only for this one in fact, but for all your ADC guides! I'm using them pretty often:)
.
Nevetheless, my question is about surving on ADC. For example, if you build 2-3 items, but enemy fed assasin/burst mage focus and one-shot you in teamfights. What should you do? Will Guardian Angel be enough? And what do you think about such alternative like Sterak's Gage? Or maybe Frozen Mallet?
.
And again, TY for great work :D

I would never build Sterak's Gage or Frozen Mallet. Guardian Angel is acceptable as a 6th item, but you can build the Chain Vest sooner than that if you really need it. The same doesn't go for Negatron Cloak however since if you just want MR, Hexdrinker is a much better choice.

Hey, glad you found my guide helpful!

I don't think there's much point in a 1v1 when you're level 21 though, because you'll be playing without full runes and masteries and that's a huge disadvantage that's completely unrelated to skill. You'll want to make sure a 1v1 is on even terms before you can even begin to learn form it.

What do you think about guinsoo on tristana after it gives more attack speed ?

Still bad. It used to be good because it was a really strong early powerspike, but now it costs as much as IE.

What masteries do you take to reach Thunderlord's Decree keystone? Instead of Battering Blows and Warlord's Bloodlust you go with Precision and then Thunderlord? I want to try that.

Vapora Dark (477) | December 20, 2016 6:06am
Yeah, this is my Thunderlord's Decree page.

It's better for snowballing early on and just generally pushing an advantage when you're fed, but it generally performs worse in team-fights than Warlord's Bloodlust or Fervor of Battle (though you also tend to do better in team-fights 5 kills up than not).

Thanks, I'm gonna try this, the thing is, I don't feel the lifesteal from Warlord's Bloodlust at all no matter how many matches I play with Tristana :/ It's like I'm playing 100% without any.

TL;DR: I played tahm supp vs a trist and she seemed to do more dmg than i EVER do with trist using your build, want your thoughts, maybe i thought she did more than she was?

Hello, I am in bronze and really enjoy your ADC guides, as my favorite ADCs are Jinx and Trist, i use them pretty much every game as a guideline and i am still improving as an ADC in general. Firstly i want to thank you for making such a in depth guide for these champions rather than just show a quick build with no other information. The main reason for leaving a comment was actually to sk some questions and see what your thoughts were. when i play tristana i generally get an Early BF > Pickaxe > Greaves > Runaans > then back into IE. Around this point in the game i do around 250-300 dmg when i crit. I always feel that is really weak, but i tend to ignore it and go one with my game. After Early BF > Pickaxe > Greaves > Runaans > IE, i go > Vapiric Scepter> PD > BT > then whatever fits the best at the time, btu that is 99% of the time what i do as i tend to be ahead most the time also. After my BT i crit for around 600ish and again,, that feels REALLLYYY weak. So today i played with my friend bot lane as Tahm upport they had a trist, her build went like this: https://gyazo.com/d472750ef01be02e1520dbe81e0d54fb (just a screenshot link to her build, max order, and runes. just incase it looked like a fishy link :P) and her Masteries: https://gyazo.com/8c9bceca99627292efe66e9c14df0960 and she shredded SUPER hard and was at the point were she could 1v2-3 and wasnt even that fed, just her items seemed to be super good. And on the other hand i dont seem to ever shred, but just hit squishies a little harder than usual. Anyways sorry for the unorganized wall of text, I want your input (if possible) on this and perhaps tell me if im wrong and your build is more effective?

(ALSO RELATED [kinda]) I saw your section on kiting/orb walking and i was seriously wondering how do you kite people like this team: https://gyazo.com/bee66634c6341995bd5a4d0aaea10258 I ALWAYS have issues when im being chased when i try to kite theyre ALWAYS faster than me so i end up just straight up running. I dont think ive ever been in a game where i can kite effectively because everyone have a billion movespeed.

Thank you in Advance if you do find time to reply to this !

She was probably just fed. Firecannon is better than Runaan's for poke but does a lot less DPS, and BotRK 3rd does less damage than a crit item. By the time she reached her 4th item, her build (though not the order) was pretty standard, except she was taking BotRK instead of BT/Scimitar, which does do more damage but at the expensive of survivability.

The only thing about her setup that would do more damage than mine all game long is taking Fervor of Battle , which would naturally deal more damage than a defensive keystone like Warlord's Bloodlust , but at the same time it's less damage than she used to deal with the old Fervor.

She got full build at 35 minutes too, so I'm pretty sure it was just her gold lead. Your ADC at that point only had 4 items so he was obviously going to be much weaker.

Kiting doesn't always keep you out of range of people trying to get to you, since you're pausing to auto-attack very frequently while they're just running towards you. If you don't kill them very fast, then it's normal for the enemies you're kiting to get to you (if you don't Rocket Jump or use Buster Shot). But by kiting you get to land more damage before they get to you, and even once they reach you, continuing to kite means that they still constantly have to chase after you and get in range of you to land another attack, whereas you can auto-attack just as frequently kiting as you can standing still.

If it's crucial that the enemy doesn't reach you, either because they can 1-shot you or because Singed will Fling you into the enemy team, then you don't kite and you just run. If they can still just run so fast that they can get to you, then you were mispositioned.

Also on Tristana you can just auto-attack them until they reach you then Buster Shot them back to square one, and also just Rocket Jump away when they reach you. In the case of Singed he's almost certainly going to try to Fling you the moment he reaches you, so just before he gets in Fling range you cast Rocket Jump and cancel it. However I wouldn't recommend doing this too many times in a single game since eventually he's going to catch on and wait until you're mid-air before Flinging you, if he's smart. At least in my Elo it wouldn't be smart to do that repeatedly, but maybe you can get away with it at yours.

On ADC's that don't have these tools, such as Jinx, then as I said, if these champions are getting to you then you were probably positioned poorly. Either that or your team weren't properly peeling for you, which is partly why I much prefer Tristana over immobile ADC's. But if you're in a position where a Fling will kill you, then the best thing to do is to NOT kite and just run, until you're in a position where getting Flinged is harmless.

Thank you for your reply, lots of useful information i will keep in mind for sure. I will keep practicing and hopefully become really good at some point. But yes i am bronze, i am more than likely out of position sometimes, but hey i just gotta keep practicing. Again thank you for you detailed response (and guide) it really helps me out, Good luck in your future games :)
