My name is TheTeblack and thats here are my third Guide! I wish you ´much fun wuth my Guide and hope that you also come out from EloHell! Of Course with this Guide ;)
Boots of Speed
and 3 Health pots
If you can good farm etc then buy:
2 Doran's Blade
If you are doing well in lane (snowball):
If you are both passively farming and kills aren't in your favor:
When to Bloodthirster and when to Infinity Edge?
All right so before I know I had said I almost always buy The Black Cleaver over Infinity Edge, but don't blindly do this.
You should buy The Black Cleaver only if (snowball):
You are getting kills in lane
You are zoning them extremely well and can eventually dive
You are outfarming the other carry by a lot
Your team is doing well and getting kills in other lane
You should buy Infinity Edge only if (keep-up):
The other AD carry is pretty skilled and you are both equal in farm
Kills in lane are just not going in your favor
The entire game appears to be resting on teamfights
As is generally the case for all AD carries, if you are doing well, Bloodthirster but on Draven I would buy The Black Cleaver and that will help you snowball. If not, Infinity Edge far outdamages The Black Cleaver; this is nothing new and applies to Draven as well. Previously I believed Draven's Q damage would make up for it and the lifesteal would be invaluable, but I have lost games simply because I was just not able to carry hard enough through damage. Remember, going the Infinity Edge route does not mean you did poorly in lane; the damage is still IE + PD even if you aren't always catching axes.
After your Snowball items or farm items:
Snowball: You buy
Farm: You buy
1. for doing more DMG
2. If they buying over ~125 Armor then buy Last whisper for doing well DMG else.
3. At Last for a bit tanky etc. if they have heavy AP buy else or
