Start with a Doran's Blade, then depending on how you're doing, buy one or two more blades. After the next recall, buy boots of speed and if you can, Wriggle's Lantern and maybe The Brutalizer. Then, go back and buy a Phage, lead up with Wit's End, Frozen Mallet, Atma's Impaler, and Warmog's Armor depending on the enemy team comp.
Thornmail is a great item against fed ad carries.
Quicksilver Sash If they enemy team has heavy CC like Event Horizon or Puncturing Taunt.
Infinity Edge if you're really fed and want extra firepower, get this item.
Bushwhack is one of the most useful skills i've ever seen. It's almost the same as a wriggles lantern, and it forces bad players that you and I once were(but we still are bad to a lesser, but still somewhat big extent). Pounce is great for juking, and chasing. A few chapters down there is a mini tutorial on how to juke.
This skill is great for laning. And, remember to use it before you go into cougar form for the extra attack speed. Swipe is great for farming, first, Pounce in then Swipe, then auto attack them to death.
This spell is awesome. Just awesome. It allows you to turn into a cat, juke, etc.
Another great skill for killing low life enemies, and for countering healers like Doctor Mundo and Volibear.
Great for chasing and escaping, but imo, flash is better.
Good if you go back alot and don't want to lose cs or exp.
Good for mitigating the damage of AD carries and also good for chasing.
VERY good after the buff, and the nerf wasn't that bad.
[icon-smite size=75] unless you're jungling, no.
NON-VIABLE SUMMONER SPELLS
You're not going to die that much are you?
ad nidalee doesn't have that many mana problems.
super minion isn't that useful, as it pushes your lane.
The ap pretty much goes to waste on this build.
Leave this to your support.
Udyr So strong right now. Dat turtle sustain bro.
Irelia She's one of the best solo top picks out there. Her sustain is great, her harass is great, everything is great. Better nerf Irelia.
Shyvana she will bully you if you try to harass her, and with her damage, will rape you if you try to pounce on her.
Renekton If he plays passive, just harass him, then it's a free lane.
Nasus I've only played against one Nasus so far, and he was bad. Even though it was a pre-made normal queue, he was just bad. So in my experiences, he's just free farm.
But if you do get bot lane, try to lane with babysitters like Sona and Alistar, or get supports like Blitzcrank or Nautilus. Just last hit the minions as much as possible.
This video tells you how to last hit, in it, it shows you the benefits of last hitting. An obvious one is more farm. The creator is TheLolAddict on youtube.
