I'm gonna make this one simple.
So I have this guy on my team who berates at me for building TF over IE first on Corki.
Is there actually an advantage to going IE first?

I don't care about my rep, but you can +rep if you want to.

IE always gives the same amount of damage while TF gives more in lategame than it does early.
I'd say never build TF first, just build some part if you really want it. Sheen and Zeal are both pretty nice in lane.

Only get IE first if you rely more on auto attacks than your ability combo. Otherwise, TF is way stronger, all stats benefit Corki. It gives corki also more damage than TF if you use all your abilities. And it helps you to spam stuff with mana.

Wait Wha?.... Tri force tails off late game because the BASE damage proc of trinity force become less and less damage as opposed to Crits and item based damage.

Corki also deals 10% of all damage on a hit as true damage. That includes procs.

That means Trinity gives him more late game than it does early. Searz never said it gave more than IE.


Thank you to jhoijhoi for the sig, and all the dividers in the guide.

Your base damage changes as you level up.

When I see things like that I cant control my pumpkin urges anymore. My natural instincts kick in. I then sit down motionless, while getting bright orange." - Morgana L

I'd say rush IE first, maybe snag phage and sheen. Honestly IMO either way works on Corki. Any other champ I'd postpone Tri Force if I got it at all.

Does his passive scale off crit?

If it does, I think IE first would give more damage.
