Threats & Synergies
By reusing R and going back to his shadow he can juke your ult and still kill you :/ ! (Op ult mark)
As all assassins she's dangerous for you , but if you can juke the charm and hit a good ult she's done , play smart!
Juke his skills and outpoke him!
My nemesis , he can destroy you if you're not carefull ... play safe , farm and poke with q.
Sorry for the poor english , im actually brazilian so im not that good at writing in english ;-;!
I hope you enjoy and find this guide usefull!
-It has an aweasome clear wave!
-Strong if played correctly
-Its unexpected so ppl dont know how to play against!
-Sets up a lot of kills with his ult!
-A good arrow can take half of the enemy's health , and it feel's good to see that!
-You'll fell like a sniper!
Poking before a team fight can make the difference and in this build is essential.Charge your q till max damage and see their health fade away.
Full combo goes normaly with R >(AA in between)> Q >(AA if possible)> E
Late you dont need to charge your Q , but early i reccomend doing so , as its your main damage!
Blowing up your W stacks not only gives you a good Health Percent DMG as it also reduces your q cooldown.
Please manage your Mana , and ask for blue buffs.You cant snipe them without mana.
Think about what lethality item you want first , each one has a situational effectiveness
advantage , here goes my opinion on each:
The most well rounded one , has dmg and utility packed with some CDR so its realy cost beneficial for your first item!Its active can help a lot with surviving and getting the range for an arrow , combo that with your out of combat mov speed and you get more slippery!
Duskblade Of Draktharr
Most damage of the 3 , but you have to get on range to AA(AutoAttack) so its kida risky , also it has a BF sword as an ingredient so its costy.Build this first only if ahead or needing burst!
Edge of Night
Tbh this item's passive needs good decision making to be effective , it blocks a spell but needs casting and last only 5 seconds , use it well and you have your own Sivir (E) shield!
Stats wise its good , helps a lot against Ap mages , the shield and the MR can make the difference in a 1v1!The lethality combos with duskblade and makes your (Q) damage insane the ad its decent too!
I love the new Deaths dance on varus , the added Ad is very welcome and healing with your arrows is aweasome!Remember the bleed helps you against burst , it gives your time to heal it back or react!CDR rules btw!
(Later Adding more info , sorry guys)
