Champion Build Guide


By wyjebnik2zuk
i play Ivern for like a year, i watch a lot of otp's and learn champion, after new items change when ivern just pop off and he's incredibly strong i decide to make my own guide about this champion, explain why you should do something and why somethings you should avoid, i will describe which items you should get and why, hope you will enjoy it
PROS / CONS Back to Top


→ stealing enemy camps was never easier
→ strong peeler
→ daisy is basicly second champion
→ he fit well in most comps of nowadays meta
→ fast early clear


→ very unique playstyle which makes ivern harder to master
→ controling daisy and ivern at the same time is must have and its not that easy
→ he can be very easily counter jungled
→ in early without help of your laner you cant win fight
→ solo drakes without daisy are imposible
→ you rely on your team

FLASH:its must have summoner spell for ivern, its awesome defensive and agresive tool at the same moment, it helps you to run away from risky situations or dodge skillshots and helps you to catch enemy on gank.

SMITE: you playing jungle. so without smite you basicly cant play, i choose blue smite cause it helps you to catch enemy and its also great escape tool with nimbus cloak, i really dont feel playing with red smite but it could be good in some very specific situations.
ITEMS Back to Top
In my opinion its only and the best mythic choice on ivern, at the start of the season i test mandate but its not that strong in my opinion. Healing which you get with that is incredible, also it procs on healing targets Chemtech Putrifier/ Staff of Flowing Water/ Ardent Censer and you can basicly cast ardent on two targets, one on person who you shield, and person who will receive healing
chemtech putrifier
Chemtech Putrifier is in my opinon the best choice after moonstone, with ivern you want to be in every fight, like i said you can proc with moonstone chemtech pasive on 2 targets, so buying this item makes that noone in your team need to buy antyhealing

Staff of Flowing Water

Staff of Flowing Water could be also great choice, after nerfs its not must have item but its still strong ivern item after all, it gives passive as chemtech for 2 teammates so you give movement speed and ability power for team, its never bad.

Dark Seal
Dark Seal is very strong on ivern, if you will play some games with tree boi you will see that if you play well,you die very rarely so you wont lose stacks often, and it makes that dark seal very strong option in early phase of game which if you catch lead can transistion into Mejai's Soulstealer

Ionian Boots of Lucidity
i choose Ionian Boots of Lucidity over Mobility Boots cause they provides you a lot of cdr which helps ivern to spam shield and spawn daisy even more often. Ionian boots also provides summoner spells cdr so you have your smite faster and can take enemy camps or secure yours more often Also you rush boots for movement speed which helps you to take faster your camps and helps in ganks

ardent censer
i choose Ardent Censer only if i got 2 or more champions who can utilize it, if you havent got a lot of attack speed using champions in team dont even buy it, its not worth

Mikael's Blessing
Mikael's Blessing is very strong item to protect your hypercarry from cc, and at current state of meta you will meet comps with a lot of cc so this item is very strong for ivern

Redemption is very standard item, gives you some hp which is nice for ivern, i don't play it every game but if you can apply Staff of Flowing Water or Ardent Censer at 4 teammates why should you not buy it

Zhonya's Hourglass
Zhonya's Hourglass - it's great item when you need survivality, when enemy got a lot of champions who can just oneshot you easily, get it

Mejai's Soulstealer
Mejai's Soulstealer- like i said earlier, you easily can stack dark seal, and if you are really strong and ahead, feel free to pick mejai's after moonstone, movement speed which you get from mejai's passive is insanly strong for ivern

Cosmic Drive
Cosmic Drive- i play it before these changes so it could now not viable at all but i will describe my feelings of this item anyway, so now you dont get that much cdr at start (you stil got 20 its nice anyway)but you got movement speed which is very nice for ivern, if you need that extra ap hp and movement speed at late game feel free to pick this item
i will explain everything one by one. This clear is in my opinion most efficient, obviously you never got same clear patch, its always rely on enemy and who you want to gank, but this patching set you in good spot and let smite crab at 3.15 or do gank pretty early.

First of all you mark Greater Murk Wolf , Blue Sentinel , Gromp , Red Brambleback you smite it for lvl so you dont need to wait this 6 seconds for mana to mark wraits, so you mark Crimson Raptor .

You take wolves and blue at same time with blast cone you done that by aa blast cone which throw you towards wolves, and shoot q just as you cast your aa. With this metod you jump with blast cone to wolf pit, take it and your Q let you to go instantly to your blue, so you basicly take 2 camps at once, then you take your gromp, you got lvl 3 at this point,and you can chooseYou have some time to spawn Rift Scuttler and you obviosly dont want to fight enemy jungle without prio so you take wraits and go for crab where enemy jugnler shouldnt be or you can ignore wraits and go instantly at gank after gromp, and after gank you can take Rift Scuttler and take your wraits if enemy jungler dont take them earlier. You are able to do this clear at either blue or red side of map

NEVER EVER DO Ancient Krug CAMP with ivern you get only gold for big and medium krug so you dont get 120 gold but around 50 and same thing goes with exp, you get it only for big and medium krug, so never waist your time for them, just let your teammates take them or just ignore them

At early focus to gank,mark camps and try to counter gank by tracking enemy jungler. Its very important to dont fall behind cause it will be hard to comeback, try to help botlane by pushing or killing enemy to take dragons, ivern solo dragons are very slow even with daisy so make sure that you got prio or botlane could help you, when you see that enemy jungler done gank at botlane or he takes dragon, with daisy you can easily take heralds, and i do it often in my games, when my bot is inting i just focus on heralds and take plates with midlaner or toplaner.

If you play at champions like Nidalee or Olaf and you know they enter your jungle, your lanes havent got prio, dont try to fight for your jungle, give it up and try to take enemy jungle and do something on map
LATE GAME Back to Top
At late game you want to stay close to your hyper carry, remember that your shield at this moment give around 360 shield and it got cooldown like 3 seconds.

You always want to play daisy before some fight, she is great for facechecking bushes and at this point of game, if your teammate facecheck bush (it shouldnt happend in higher elos) and get oneshoted it could lose you game, and daisy dont even need to die and if she died she will come back right after cause at this moment you will have really short cooldown on Daisy!.

Daisy is also very good at being ward when your team doing objectives, for example your team doing baron, you let daisy stay next to one entry to baron pit so you will see if enemies will aproach from this site.

Basicly late game is based only at that you should stay near hypercarry and make sure that he wont get oneshoted, try to survive assasins which would really like to kill you cause they know that they cant just oneshot adc throught your shields.
conclusion Back to Top
It's my first guide, i will still work on it, i hope you enjoy it and it will help you in learning Ivern
