Threat Champion Notes

Riven The perfect matchup. Riven players tend to be very easy to tilt, and that is something a good Singed player can abuse. Spam your laugh, make her mad, and she will chase. Be sure to be nice in the all chat when she kills you. Be even nicer when you kill her.

Introduction

Who Am I?


Well, I'll be blunt. I'm just a Silver player that plays quite a bit of Singed. I started getting S grades with Singed before I was level 2 with him, and earning Mastery Level 7 with him was a breeze thanks to this build. I'm no authority in League, but my Singed build works and it works very well.

Why Singed?


Singed is a very special champion. He can carry entire games behind him and his fully stacked Mejai's, or he can feed the entire game but still win the game due to his tilting of the enemy team. This is what makes Singed a fun pick, even if not the strongest.

Out of all the champions available in League of Legends, Singed is one of the few champions that do not rely on their kit or playstyle to win games. He instead relies on "the tilt factor." Like Shaco and Teemo, Singed needs to make his enemy mad. Spamming your laugh, taunting in the all chat, dancing on their corpse... all these are just as important, if not more important, than your Q and E. Making them want you dead more than they want to win drives enemies into breaking the number one rule of League: Do not chase the Singed.

An Explanation of Spells

Ghost+Exhaust


Singed is one of the few champions that prefer to take Ghost over Flash for a simple reason- you don't want to get away. You want to stay just outside of your enemies clutches, baiting them into thinking they will catch you... making them chase.
Exhaust is my preferred offensive spell due to its synergy with Singed's kit. Enemy running away from you and out of range of your Fling? Exhaust them so you can catch up. Enemy on your tail and you are worried they might catch up? Exhaust and you not only reduce the damage they can do to you while you are in their range, but you should easily outspeed them in the 2.5 seconds of slow.

Other Options


Teleport is not a bad choice for Singed. In fact, it opens up new ways to proxy farm; drop a ward in the enemy jungle and tele to it to quickly get back behind their tower. There is nothing wrong with taking Teleport over Exhaust, so feel free to take it if that is what you'd prefer.
Ignite. Extra burning damage, less healing... it sounds so good on Singed! Why not take it? Well, while igniting an enemy is a great way to secure a kill, that is all it can do for you. It is nowhere near as versatile as Exhaust, but if you are ok with that, then by all means, take it.

The Seals

I'm sure you are wondering... 3 The Dark Seal? Why, man, why? The answer is very simple... The item's second effect. 25% increased healing from potions. Not a bad effect on a starting item, right? Notice how it is not a Unique Passive. That's right, with 3 Dark Seals, your Corrupting Potion heals 217 HP instead of just 125. This keeps the potion viable for much longer than it normally would be, making your sustain in lane better and allowing for a dastardly trick- letting your opponent smack on you until you are low health and then running away. They see a low health enemy, they chase to try and kill you. Meanwhile, you are gaining health back very quickly and dealing additional damage thanks to Touch of Corruption.
If you find yourself at full stacks once the laning phase ends, you can sell off 2 of the Seals and your Corrupting for a Mejai's Soulstealer, giving you even more damage and mana, as well as increased movement speed if you can keep it stacked up!

Laning Vs Proxy Farming

Once minions spawn, you have 2 options on how you want to approach the next 20 minutes.

Laning


If your are matched up with a melee champ that cannot outrun you (i.e. most toplaners), you may want to stay in front of their tower and fight like a normal toplaner. Zone them away from your minions using your Poison Trail, and Fling them whenever you can. Use your Mega Adhesive as a harass tool. People get worried that you are about to make a play when you drop a slow behind them and will tend to run off. Use their fear to dominate the lane... but don't forget to annoy them the entire time. Make them mad so that they try and trade with you, a scenario where you almost always win.
Ranged champions, such as Jayce or Gnar will likely give you trouble if you try to lane against them- split pushing is recommended.
An exception to this would be champions with hard cc, such as Jax or Renekton. Hard cc can turn the tides of battle from you very quickly, so be wary when trading with these types of enemies.


Proxy Farming


This is what makes Singed fun. Forget trading and all that normal top lane stuff! All you want to do is kill minions! Run through the jungle and go inbetween your enemies first and second tower. This wide patch of land is now your home. Use the bush near their second tower as a hiding spot/restroom as you wait for the next line of minions to walk by, then kite the whole wave towards the first tower. Once you get near the outer range of the first tower, turn and run back to your hidey hole. This should very easily kill all of the minions, depriving the enemy toplaner any chance to push your tower.
How do you win lane, you ask? It's very simple. When a Singed is proxy farming you, you have 2 options... ignoring him and farming, or trying to kill him.
The first option is the best option for your foe. No progress will be made in top lane unless one of you goes back to base to buy items/refill potions. Boooring.
If they try and stop you, feel free to smile a toxic smile. You will have to kite both the enemy champion and their minions without the aid of your own minions, because they will too busy damaging an undefended tower. You see where this is going? You get free tower damage and potential kills? This is fun! If your enemy catches wise to whats going on, be sure to tilt them back into trying to kill you.
And this is what happens when you do tilt them into finally addressing you
Don't be upset if you die a lot doing this. Without kills, you eventually you will be worth less than minions, and time spent killing you is time wasted by the enemy team; still a win in your eyes.

After The Towers Fall

Once the laning phase is over, you have two options as Singed- Be a second support or be a dedicated split pusher.

Toxic Teamfighter


Righteous Glory is the most important part of your build. Combining Noxious Slipstream, Ghost, Insanity Potion and Righteous Glory's active gives you up to 336% increased movement speed (granted, that is the perfect scenario in which you draft off of all 9 other people in the game, but you get the idea). This is your initiate, your escape (due to the AoE slow it gives to the enemy champions near you), and a good bit of tankiness that will keep you alive. Rylai's Crystal Scepter and Morellonomicon are both equally important to you, since your bolting through the enemy team just slowed all of them and applied Grievous Wounds.
Every fight should start something like this- You try to draft off of at least one ally before activating Righteous Glory in order to maximize your movement speed, and run headlong into the enemy team. Use your Fling to grab the ADC or whoever is the squishiest and deadliest enemy you can catch. Your team will slaughter whoever was thrown, and your Rylai's just slowed all of your enemies, so your team can easily catch up and fight as you run towards the enemy base, clearing minions and damaging the enemies if they try to flee back home.
Due to your DoT nature, you likely will not get many kills this way, since you allies will like last hit anyone low enough to die from poison. While slightly less satisfying, this is since Dark Seal/Mejai's gain stacks from assists as well.

Splitpushing Scientist


Forget Rylai's and Morellonomicon, you have better things to build! You need yourself a Zz'Rot Portal and Rabadon's Deathcap in order to maximize your waveclear. Run past the enemy minion line and loop back towards yours, and those little buggers should die before the first friendly minion throws a basic attack. Use your bonus movement speed from Zz'rot and the slow from Righteous to run away from anyone who tried to stop you, forcing them to choose between trying to catch you or destroy your portal to the Void. Either way, you win.
