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.
sheen: goes verry well with his "Q" skill making it do very much dammage
berzerkers greaves: for attack spped which will help much
frozen mallet: gives him health for his skills and just makes him even harder to kill also adding dammage
trinity force: makes him much faster able to catch his targets guicker and having passive of phage to slow enemies very good combo with frozen mallet
the black cleaver gives him dammage and the attack speed makes him much mroe dangerous (you may also consider blood thirster instead of this but the speed helps very much)
warmogs armor: makes him extremly hard to kill and makes skills moderately tanky
atams impaler: this is an item that will make him madly strong with all of the health he whas form the items.
i like to max his "Q" first and get skeen first to that he is hitting very hard early game. keeping his "W" and his "E" works very well aswell. and obviously 6, 11, 16 for ultimate
ignite always good to finish them off i dont suggest to getting the mastery for this cause he doesnt have ability power, the exhause is for early game more ensuring you get fed and making late game very easy. other speels that might go good are heal, when having all summons out and ulting you can heal when they are low and keep them out for longer making you very unapproachable, flash many like to use to get away but i may use as to land "Q", "W", "E" in that order for those who are very defensive, ghost may be good for chasing down and landing your "Q" on them making you faster of course while laying down "W" while chasing slowing them
Pros / Cons
great in team fights
stopping minions waves
slow early game occasionally
slow speed until trinity force
hard to land full combo every time
very low mana
not extremely powerful but still good
when in a lane and partner engages try to use your "E" when you stat to get low so u are targeted, if team mate gets low then use "W" so that they are slowed, when with a dps like tryndamere or master yi ult on them when you are in a team fight, hitting the tower making it come down very fast, and deception. if with shaco or mord or even both you become very deadly, when shaco ults you ult on him NOT CLONE, and team fight could be considered 4v2 while laning, with mord after he takes a life with his ult you ult on yourself or him depending on dammage and attack speed to take down towers menacingly fast
his ultimate when the person targeted with it dies it acts as a guardian angel but when you are revived only for a maximum of 10 seconds, very fun with karthus, kogmaw, zilean ult, anivia, and anyone with guardian angels, his "W" reveals spots that you release it at, when the games starts you may chose to buy it as your first skill and send into bushes to check, but later games for checking baron and just suspicious bushes, can also send down in forrest for teemo shrooms and stopping rammus powerball coming toward you or team mate, also block pprojectiles like lee sin "Q" and nidalees spear, if you are tryint to run from others use "Q" on a minion or a champion if desparate combines with "W" for a speedy getaway along with hitting "E" on a minion to ragain health as you run away!
when farming i like to use "Q" to bring them from 2/3 hp to nothing for gold, when low very good to use "E" to regain health, works very well, try not to use "W" or "E" too much for you will lose much of your mana and may lose a team fight or just miss a kill
