Items

Standard Build
Statikk Shiv will be used in tangent (together) with Duskblade of Draktharr for initial burst damage. This burst damage should enable the Domination tree to be more effective with one shotting enemy champion and deal more damage to low health champions. Infinity Edge is required to increase Critical Strike Chance for the initial damage. Death's Dance will be used in tangent with Ravenous Hunter for sustain when using abilities. Maw of Malmortius or Sterak's Gage will be used to gain sustain on low health and prevent the enemy from being able to one shot you with burst. Berserker's Greaves/Ninja Tabi/Boots of Swiftness are situational.

Tips and Tricks

Farming
Use Q on minions for instant wave clear. Be aware that auto attacks do not go over minions. Use E to reload 1 auto attack to wave clear faster and farm better.

Trading
Use Q to initiate trade. AA > E > AA, use this combo to maximize damage when trading because using E will reload 1 auto attack. If Q hits a structure it will bounce back immediately. If done well, using E will cancel auto attack animation.

Burst/One Shot
Q > AA > E > AA > R, this combo is most effective when near a structure because the Q will return and deal additional damage along with the rest.
