[10.4] Carry without caring - Bruiser ADC Caitlyn

By Mericat
A few words
Hey there!

Im just a quite average League of Legends player (with peak at diamond 1, several years ago) that usually loves to derp around with build ideas and loves to experiment. At the end of Season 9 i finally found my way back into LoL and since then trying to find something that feels fun and strong to play. I felt that ADCs right now were in a quite horrible position and was looking for a way to dont just play Xayah and call it a day - at some point someone mentioned and tried a "tanky" Caitlyn build, i was very interested in it and tried it for a while - hell, im a huge fan! It feels so much better than her regular Press the Attack/ Fleet Footwork build, it doesnt even feel much weaker in damage later on, but the amount of safety entirely changes the pace and feeling of playing Caitlyn, Ashe and even Twitch and Tristana!

If you feel like you are getting constantly stomped by assassins, dying to any kind of even short CC or simply getting annihilated in any duel - give bruiser Caitlyn a try and i hope you get the same results as me, a much more fun time playing ADC and some of the best moments LoL ever delivered. Facetanking assassins and killing them in Bone Plating while never being scared is probably the best feeling i ever had as ADC!
Other picks Back to Top
This build works (a bit changed) on multiple picks!

Ashe - not much changes, just pass on Cull early. I prefer to get myself Dagger over AD early on, since it feels way more fluid. Later on go for Runaan's Hurricane over Rapid Firecannon.

Twitch - start with Doran's Shield and also go for attack speed over attack damage early on, nothing else changes. If you are able to, go for Cull since you want that extra gold while farming up to your final form.

Tristana - im still trying on her, Doran's Shield seem to be superior and playing her feels more tricky, especially early on, but its doable.

Aphelios - in the core build change Infinity Edge for Essence Reaver and later on go for Runaan's Hurricane over Rapid Firecannon. Im not experienced enough on him to tell you much more. Try it yourself and feel free to report me your results! Im curious.
