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.
This guide is aimed for player who don't play marksman as their main and still want to win when they are forced to play bot lane whit adc.
This is my first guide I main Jungle and Mid and recently ADC. I have played league for only about half a year so I am not a pro so this is a guide from a noob to a noob.
+One of the best ults in game
+strong late game
-has problems against burst bot lanes
-early game can be bad
-can be mana hungry
-Q is easy to dodge
Runes and masteries
I have found that the crit change and crit dmg can win some trades and might scare your enemy's
I took scaling Magic Resist because if the enemy support isn't an AP poker like kayle or nidalee you wont need it early. If you think that taking only AD Marks is not enough you can take some ad marks or AD Glyphs.
I don't have much to say about the masteries only that you can change the masteries but keep the
spell weaving and weaving blade.
I know I know Guinsoo's Rageblade this guide is a troll but it is a good item it will buff your dueling potential alot you can win every duel whit it after 13 when your w starts dealing some dmg.
Pick BOTRK if you want life steal and kiting. Last Wisper
if enemy team start building armor. frozen mallet for some hp and slow for kiting. Runaan's hurricane is a really good item for team fight's. I was thinking should I put Runaan's to core instead of Guinsoo's Rageblade but decided to put it here because I thing rageblade is better.
Of course if you want to take GA that is fine but I think you should only take it when you are getting focused by assasins or if you don't know where you should be in team fights.
I usualy take GA but if you are not being focused or your team needs cc against a ap team take frozen mallet and against a ad take gauntlet
Some other good items
these are the items that I buy but rarely but some times I might need them or I just feel like buying them. tri force I can only say it is a sheen item so it will deal some dmg but there are better options out there this can be good also if you take zephyr instead of boots it will give you movement speed to compensate your lack of mobility. Black cleaver's passive whit Rageblades passive is ok but not recomended. mercurial scimitar has that active so it is always good pick up but I only take it against a Warwick,Malzahar,Zed,fizz or vlad so get rid of their ults.
Zephyr is just so in late game when you don't need mobility as much as early you can sell your boots and take that
it is there just for fun it works but you need to get close and personal to do something. If you build that max R-W-E-Q.
