This is arguably one of the best keystones for ADC's to choose. When at 100 stacks you gain HP, and a burst of movement speed. Moving and auto attacking minions or champions charge stacks.

It also provides decent sustain in lane when you are down on potions.

1) Think about the situation. Are you in a safe position? If yes you are able to attack the closest enemy champion and dish out damage. If you are not, you must be able to spam W from a distance and slow the enemy champions until you find space.
2) Priority focus. The golden rule for an ADC is to attack the closest person to you. Though if there is a big tank not in your face and you have the room to attack someone important, do that. The point of a tank is to be obnoxious to you and other carries. If the tank is not doing their job you have the room to do damage to carries.
3) Keep your distance, be aware of threats. If they have a Zed with his abilities, then he is likely going to save them for you. you need to either fully grouped within your team, then they will effectively peel for you. Don't get caught out by these assassins because you are your team's main damage source and engage if you choose Ashe.
