Hey and thanks for the support! The choice between Statikk Shiv and Phantom Dancer is mainly chosen by playstyle prefference, you can opt in for a Statikk Shiv when you need more burst and even more waveclear(very good when you're ahead), or opt in for Phantom Dancer when you need that extra dueling power from the damage reduction and if you need the movement speed that the item provides :)

Hey :) Thank you for the overall great guide, allthough I'm a little confused at the item list vs the description. In the item list it says to go Shiv>Greaves>Infinity, but in the description it says to go Infinity>Greaves>Shiv. Sorry if I'm missing something.

Hey, thanks for the kind words! Regarding the different build bath, there was a a point in like mid/late season 6 where this build got a new path and players favored Statikk Shiv first. Seems like I didn't update that part(which I will do ASAP), but both build paths should be fine either way. Anyway again thanks for notifying me!

Isn't it more worth to max Ricochet as a first ability to get farming easier and then max the Q? Just wondering, otherwise great build thanks for the effort.

Anyway, thanks for leaving a comment!

Two reasons I'd disagree.

1: Mana cost would be high if you were consistently planning on farming with abilities. Focus abilities toward your opponent.

2: Ricochet's level scaling is based on Sivir's attack damage. Meaning early game you aren't scaling that ability very high, so it doesn't do much more damage than it did with 1 point in it. Boomerang Blade on the other hand gains more base damage to the ability with each point added, meaning it scales far better early game than Ricochet. It is also your best option to harass.

I see, it's true I'm often low-mana when I max Ricochet. Thanks for the advice, I'll change my skill-sequence then. :)

Hey 3Dikas3,

I see you have spent a lot of your free time to creat this awesome guide. Thank you so much cuz its so useful, helpful and very in-depth. But I have one question:
-Who is better to build for first item Statikk Shiv or Infinity Edge cuz i don't know. Anyway thanks again. Have a nice day :)

Heya, ScdoWn!

Thanks for the appreciation:)
Statikk Shiv is a better first item, because it provides more burst(item passive), sustained damage(because of the attack speed) and utility(movement speed). But that being said, I suggest building around your playstyle. My build is basically just a basis for people who want to try something different. So feel free to test mulptiple build paths, items, runes, masteries and playstyles, maybe you will find something that works perfectly for you!
Once again thanks for the nice words:)

Regards,

3Dikas3

Just wanted to say this is the Sivir build I always use and I think it's way more effective than the Essence Reaver build that everyone is building on her. The burst effect from Statik + IE is insane. I just wanted to add that you should change the build path so that you get BF sword first, tier one boots, Statik, tier 2 boots and then complete IE. This is the way her build shines the most in early skirmishes.

Hey, EvilLurker:)

Thanks for the suggestions, and now that I think about it it probably is a better way to build Sivir into the game. Will change it ASAP :)

Regards,

3Dikas3

P.S. I love Your Shaco guide, thanks for putting all the effort into it :P

Thanks :) Essence Reaver is viable obviously but I feel if you really want to hard carry, the burst damage really compliments her. I literally took down an ADC's hp with 1 AA using W + AA. Didn't feel essence was really powerful on her. Once she gets IE SHIV, and Blood thirster, Banshee after that is the way to hard carry, and even GA after that if they have no tanks. Otherwise just mortal reminder or the standard armor penetration.

Thanks for the awesome guide! Very clear and easy to understand. I can see now how I've been wasting half of Sivir's potential. Can't wait to get back in the game and try your tips. :)

Also, please consider writing a Riven guide if you have the time! Would love to hear your strategy. (Esp for early game, omg. XD)

Hey, Yashka!

Thanks for the support and I'm glad that I helped you understand her somewhat better!

And about the Riven guide, I don't think that I'm that good of a Riven player and I know way more tips on Sivir than on her:D So the guide won't come(atleast for now). I hope you understand:)

I'm disappointed to see that there's no Sivir late game guide yet, because in my experience, Sivir's late game is the very best part of her game. She does massive AOE damage in teamfights with her W and can also push towers extremely fast, but her laning phase is weak, especially if you have a passive support.

Hey, EmeraldTechno.

Sorry that I haven't written it yet, don't have that much time in my hands as of right now. Will try doing it ASAP when I get some inspiration and some free time. I hope you understand:)

I prefer death's dance instead of bt since i think they give the same amount of ad, even thought bt could give a nice shield, death's dance gives 15% healing on all physical damage done: ricochet, boomerang blade. the added cdr from death's dance is also nice for a little spellshield cd help

Hello 0n1yg4m354nd1if3!

Everyone has his own prefferences, so feel free to change the build up! But I don't really think death's dance is really that viable on ADC's. Tt's more for bruisers and ability casters, because you still tend to AA a lot, so you can utilize BT better. I hope you understand my choice!

Regards,

3Dikas3

I'm interested as to why you don't take Essence Reaver, as her mana sustain is just **** even with spell shield

As I explained in one of the other comments:

You could consider ER as a choice of item, but I personally don't like it. Sivir doesn't really need CDR, because her cooldowns late game are not high at all and you just keep spamming W all the time. Mana regen is also another stat kinda wasted on Sivir, because you get mana from your E which you have to get used to using quite frequently. But if you're a newer Sivir player, you could just get ER because it helps you fix some mistakes like running out of mana and finding yourself in ****ty situations with abilities on CD's. Also, another reason why I don't pick Essence Reaver on Sivir is that I like to play her in more of a utility style, but if you really want for me to make an Essence Reaver build no problem! Going to make it when I have time!
Anyway, thanks for asking!:)

Regards,

3Dikas3
