For Marks you would want to take Greater Mark of Desolation because it will allow you to shread the armor of squishy AD carrys

For Seals we take crit chance to max out your damage output

Glyphs we take attack speed so with your damage you can take down your opponent fast with ease
and last but not least

For Quints we take Greater Quintessesnce Of Desolation with a total of 25 Armor Penetration with your Marks Of Desolation if your opponent has 16 armor while you have 25 Armor Penetration your opponent will take full damage from your basic attacks and from your Duskbringer

Early Game, you can start off with a Long Sword to build into a Brutalizer, or take Doran's Blade if you need the extra hp. Depending on the team comp. you can get a Berserker's Greaves for the Attack Speed. If the team has too much CC get Mercury Threads. Afterwards, build your Brutalizer to a Youmuu's Ghostblade or rush a Bloodthirster, if you need the extra damage Mid Game.

Mid Game - Your items you should have at least right now are Berserker Greaves/Mercury Threads,Brutalizer -> Ghostblade/Bloodthirser. During Mid Game you should starting ganking the other lanes if you haven't started yet. Your combo (more info. in the Skill Sequence Chapter) should be: (when lvl 6) R-Q-E-W. If you don't have your ult, just Q-E-W. Back to the Items, you can either choose a Black Cleaver or Last Whisper for the Armor pen. to do extra damage even though they don't have enough armor.

Late Game - Your last items you can buy is a Phantom Dancers for the attack and movement speed, also an Infinity Edge for crits and burst your target down with auto attacks easily.

Overall, Nocturne is a extremely fun to play. You can be the Carry of your team, be an amazing ganker, or Tower Dive for the giggles :). Nocturne can be played in many ways, but we will update these guides to improve items, or add more builds :3. If you guys don't like laning as Nocturne, you can check our Jungle Guide when it is up. Thank you for taking the time to read the whole guide. (Our 1st guide so tell us how we can improve)
We will upload the Jungle Guide link when finish.

Suggest a Champion for us to make a guide about, because DragonAznBoy has 90% of all Champions. <3
