Threats & Synergies
She has a very strong early game. She has enough cc and limits your movement. Never start a poke war because you WILL lose
Ezreal has poke but mana doesn't account for damage. You can start a poke war as long as you poke back. Use your E wisely
Ashe has alot of cc. You need to be wise at what you take and what you don't. You'll out damage her but her CC will be a problem
Corki is ez pz. You out damage him by ALOT. Don't be afraid to fight him. Your E will disrupt alot of his movement
Graves has high burst damage so his damage is on par with you. His smokescreen is important because it denies your vision and every second counts
Jinx's skills are easy to dodge, especially with your W. Dodge her skills and poke back , you will win.
Jhin has alot of utility and damage. When chasing him don't follow his path, make your own. When he has no bullets, engage with your E.
Lucian requires alot of help. You can poke and out damage him but position yourself correctly, but Lucian has been pretty strong in the meta so be careful
Try to stay in MF's face. Her double up hurts , so don't stand behind minions.
You out damage Quinn by a great amount. Her blind is a problem, Watch out for that and you're fine.
Varus can easily poke you, so it's a problem. Try to poke back as much as possible. Don't stand in his E , it'll reduce your lifesteal
Vayne is easy, but she can disrupt your positioning so try to be the one to engage. Don't let her engage.
Alistar has alot of CC. pay attention to when he engages. Try to poke him down while staying out of range
Bard is very easy to poke. Dodge his stuns and continue to poke.
Against Blitz, you can dodge pulls with your W and the silence isn't a big problem because you're mostly AA
Brand can deal some heavy damage and stuns. Try to poke him before he pokes you
Braum can block alot of damage and he has really high CC. Be careful and try to poke when he's vulnerable. Make his engages weaker.
You can cancel Janna's ult with your E, She's very squishy
Kalista is a weak ADC. You can easily poke her down
Karma is a huge threat. She has alot of damage and CC. Stay out of range from her.
Your poke against Kog will be stronger, but keep your distance because of his passive
Leona is very scary. Try to predict and dodge her skills with your W. When her E or Ult is down , try and poke.
Lulu is dangerous with her CC. Bait that out then poke her down
Morg Spell shield can only block your E. So be careful about that. Dodge her CC and you can do alot of damage
Nami has alot of CC, but if you find the right times to poke, She's very weak
Nautilus' hook is dangerous. It makes you drop axes most of the time and he has high CC. Keep your distance
Sivir is useless against you. Don't engage with your E. Save it and keep poking with your Q
Sona will poke alot , when she tries poke back until she is forced to stay away
Your Q is stronger than her Q. If she does that, poke her down and make her regret it.
Tahm is a savior. Target him and poke him down. Force him to use his shield
You can dodge alot of Taric's skills with your W. Try to engage and poke before he uses his Ult
Thresh is just a monster. If he hooks you, you're probably going to lose your Axes and be right in the midde of their team. Stay away
Trist will try to slowly poke you down, When she pokes, poke her back and disrupt her jump with your E
Keep your Eyes on twitch, use W to get out of his poison and poke him down
Zilean can put all your damage to nothing with his ult. Try to slowly poke down and watch out for his Q
Zyra can poke alot, so it's hard to make good trades. Stay away and get life steal from her plants
Malphite has a strong engage. Try and poke him down and don't let him engage
Lux has high early dmg and CC. Once her skills are down use that opportunity to engage.
Xayah shouldn't be too much of a threat. You need to stay mobile, which Draven usually is. Try to place your axes as far away as possible from her feathers you should be safe.
Rakan is decently dangerous to you, especially if he's with Xayah. Although Rakan may seem like a weak support, he tends to shut down really aggressive champions like Draven. Don't get to close, he'll cc you and use you for q heals. Keep your distance and wait for support to engage.
Pros / Cons
1. You have very high Dmg
2. They won't be able to react fast enough
3. You have really strong engages
4. Lots of sustain
5. You have way more gold than other ADC's
1. You need alot of gold to start the build properly
2. If you get camped early, it'll be hard to catch up
3. You're vulnerable to poke very early
You have a really strong early game, because you won't need your Bloodthirster right away. Make trades for pokes, but don't take too much depending on the heaaler. Protect your healer, because they will portect you.
You're poke will be way stronger which will definitely help you get that early start of the build that you will need. Their usefulness will run out, but once you get your first 3 items you're good
They will help you all the way with this build. Make sure you know what and what you can't do because if you overstep your boundaries you can mess up. Make sure you wait for them to engage and keep up for the most optimal plays
With Damage supports they can usually do the poking for you, allowing you to Farm a bit more freely which can allow you to get that big start gold that you need to begin the build. Pay attention to your support, because if they poke enough they can either open opportunities for free kills or get caught. Make sure you keep an eye on them. These supports tend to be "loose cannons"
1. Draven's Spinning axes scale on your max AD, so it's important to get alot of damage early
2. When you attack with Draven you can move your mouse to a location and click there. You're axe will fall somewhere onto that direction.
3. Unless it's a Yasuo wind wall, Champions with shields such as Morgana and Braum won't block and erase your spinning axes.
(W) Blood Rush:
1. You're Blood Rush will reset every time you pick up an Axe
2. Try to use your blood rush right after you Attack so you can rush towards and pick up your axe to refresh again
(E) Stand Aside!:
1. Try not to waste your E because it is VERY important
2. You're E pushes them in the direction from the edge that you used it
3. You're E is a strong engager if you can't catch up to the enemy
(R) WHIRLING DEATH:
1. You're ult will Reverse after it hits the first champion, so be precise
2. The damage will reduce after hitting a unit such as a minion, so look for a clear path
3. Try to aim for the path they will be at, instead of directly at them so it will be harder for them to dodge
