Greater Mark of Malice x5
Greater Mark of Strength x4
For the seals and glyhs most of it actually pretty standard for most melee champs, but with some different types of changes to just help with your sustain. For the seals I have:
Greater Seal of Resilience x5
Greater Seal of Vigor x4
Lastly it is just the standard glyphs for this champion:
Greater Glyph of Warding x9
Next you want to go right to your PD (phantom dancer). So you want to power through gold to make sure you get it, just don't throw off your jungler by doing so. But try and make sure you get the kills over your jungler, because that'll just help you that much more in powering through to the most useful item in your build.
Then just take your time and harass when you're building to your infinity edge, try to buy either both build items at once, or just try and buy the whole thing at once, mainly because I hate just having one or the other of either item because they leave out each other alone so it can be hard to choose one over the other if you only have enough gold for one.
Nextly, for more survivability, you want to pick up the warmog's armour and the guardian angel, this way you get over 3000 health while dealing crits like a mad man, you can also come back to life and probably get ANOTHER kill in your team fight, or finish off your little 1v1 you were having.
If he gets first blood, gg.
Very good sustain if played right.
Great mid gamer champ to play.
Runs through mana quickly at beginning if played wrong.
Has a hard time escaping before level 6.
Hard to come back late game if you had a fail early game.
