Threats & Synergies
You cant 1v1 Olaf since he has a 1v1 potential better than you with his insane lifesteal, also his ultimate can ignore your fear, if you want a chance at 1v1ing him take ignite.
Kha is just the better assassin, his Q is on low cooldown so you cant block all of them, avoid triggering his passive "Isolation" when 1v1ing him.
You cant really kill him can you?
Nunu & Willump
He has better ganks than you and you can block all of his CC, but you should be able to 1v1 him if you invade his jungle but he usually has better fights than you.
Rengar is just the better assassins aswell he will just spam jump bushes in your jungle if he invades you, you wont be able to do more damage than him.
He can deal insane amount of damage but your fear stays on him while he is using Q so you can outplay him easily.
Udyr kinda broke right now
You cant really 1v1 him late game since he will be tanky, unless you build crit, but you can win midgame fights
You can outfarm and kill him early when his alone.
Really good synergy because of your ultimates you can both ult, the vision loss makes it hard to know whats coming to the enemy team.
You and shen can also ult together, almost every global ult works with nocturne, really great synergy.
Altough hard to find a situation to have fiddle on your team, maybe if hes playing mid or you are? His fear makes you go fast after the enemy with your passive of 90% movement speed towards feared enemies, also perma fear will be there.
your ult his ult easy ganks.

- You usually take the assassin normally but you can adapt, you take Duskblade of Draktharr when there are squishy champions against you such as mages and adc's. You can also take Sanguine Blade as your third item to split push lanes in the late game. And build a more survivability with Edge of Night and Guardian Angel to have a more dive into teamfights playstyle.
- You can also take Eclipse if you are playing assassin against tanks, since it does max health damage after 2 separate attacks. Make sure to take black cleaver and other items to support doing damage against tanks.
-If there are burst champions that can easily one-shot you such as Kha'Zix, Rengar, Kai'Sa or Zed. You will survive their burst and with Goredrinker you can get your health back up in teamfights this is more of a bruiser build, you still do damage but not as much.
-If you still are against bursty champions but you cant catch up to your enemies and need more mobility take Stridebreaker since it gives you a free dash and slow in front of you which makes it easier to hit your fear.
- When you are against a team of tanks, imagine Ornn, Malphite and Rammus in the same team you should definitely build Kraken Slayer since you do true damage and with crit you can 1v1 tanks and stay alive with Bloodthirster keeping you alive.
