Threats & Synergies
Her ult can interrupt yours and don't underestimate her damage output.
He has lots of pokes but they're all dodge-able; try your best to dodge them. You'll take more damage the more stacks of Blighted Quiver you take. Try to go in and out when engaging with Varus; you don't wanna drag the fight long. His ult can't interrupt yours, so it should be an easy match up.
Her spell shield can block your Q, and good Sivir will do. But it has a long CD and can't negate your ult.
Caitlyn has a long range for her auto attack and Piltover Peacemaker, which is dodge-able; try your best to dodge it, since it has a long wind-up time. She puts pressure by placing Yordle Snap Trap, and you'll feel uncomfortable around it. Pay attention to them and try not to step on them. You can take them out when she B's. If you try to poke her, she will most likely poke you back, but that's OK. Back off if her passive is up.
She only shoots peas (pees?) early game, but she scales into a hypercarry late game. First,don't feed her. Second, she has a short auto attack range, so you can bully her with Double Up; it's pretty easy to get kills from her (depending on your supp though). Mind your surroundings and avoid getting slammed into a wall; hugging a tower is not always the best idea. Third, try to finish the game as early as possible, as she is a late game carry. If the game lasts long enough, it'll be tough for you since you have no hard CC, so you have to rely on your teammates to provide stuns and rooting avoid her kiting and burst her down.
His play style is quite similar- got some pokes like MF but with higher mobility. He is just annoying.
She is more of a late game hyper-carry. Don't feed her and try to finish the game as early as possible. Be wary of her global ultimate; you can get behind your ally to mitigate the damage. If you're really low, don't hesitate to use heal or flash to avoid dying (you can also use heal to save your ally too). Zap is easy to dodge; it has fairly long wind up time. Move to side or get behind minion.
Late game carry with high mobility but easy to bully early game.
Short range. Late game can be troubling but make sure you annihilate him with your ult.
Her ult can dodge yours so make sure to wait it out or she is hard CC'd. You can also dodge her ult too. Just re-position yourself so 1) you won't get hit by feathers and 2) you're not standing between Xayah and feathers.
You can predict where he is going since he tries to grab his axe. You can position yourself for a safe poke, especially if you use your Q. However, he does deal a lot of damage and has high poke potential. You might be able to handle Draven but your supp might feed.
Long range, high poke potential. His snare is pretty annoying too, especially if you get snared after snare (i.e. Morgana Q then Jhin W). Try to avoid his 4th shot. Activate your W to dodge his ult; consider running side to side instead of to just one direction or trying to get out of the zone.
Early game is yours, but late game she'll be a monster.
Late game carry. She can counter your ult by using her rocket jump or knock back with ult. She could be hard to secure kills on.
Late game hypercarry but low mobility. You can bully him easily. Just try not to get ambushed.
He is also a lane bully with much more mobility than you. Could be a tough much up.
According to the lore, Amumu is not supposed to have any friends but he is MF's best friend. He can trap multiple enemies with his R, which creates an opportunity for you to ult multiple opponents.
If he can land his hook to opposing ADC, you can deal lots of damage with E and auto-Q-auto combo. His ult makes it hard for opponents to escape from your ult.
Similar to Thresh. Her dive and stun creates a good chance to deal a load of damage. If she lands her ult on multiple opponents, there's your chance to destroy them with your ult.
Her snare creates an opportunity to deal ton of damage with your combo and ultimate. During the team fight, her ultimate can knock up multiple enemies, which you can follow up with your ult.
She is a good diver so naturally, she will be staying in front of you while she stuns multiple opponents and you ult them.
His ultimate traps opposing champions, which you can safely ult them since you'll be behind J4 and they generally cannot get out of the zone.

[Miss OP] All You Need is a Fortune (9.8)By DddyAwsmSauce
Back in late Season 6, Yoummuu's Ghostblade and Dustblade of Draktharr build became meta for Miss Fortune.
It was quite unique itemization for an ADC, but it was OP.
Yoummuu provided flat armor penetration that made it easier to snowball, but never really fell off in late game; attack and movement speed boost on as needed basis.
Draktharr provided another armor pen and an interesting passive, nightfall, which increased likeability of securing kill on enemy champions who marginally escaped.
However in Pre-Season 7, both items were nerfed.
Youmuu lost the active attack speed boost, and armor pen was changed to lethality, which decreased the immediate impact.
Draktharr lost the nightfall passive and gained new passives, which aren't very useful on MF.
By any means, I don't mean to diss those who prefer Youmuu and/or Draktharr on their MF or ADC
However, I guess it is what it is.
But, despite these changes, MF is still a great pick for an ADC position.
She bullies opposing ADCs early game with her Q, Double Up.
Her passive increase in movement speed with W, Strut, makes her a very mobile ADC.
When she activates W, she gains massive attack speed boost, which helps taking down objectives and fights.
Best of all, when her ultimate, Bullet Time is well placed, she will shred the tanks and annihilates the squishies.
Assuming Youmuu and Draktharr stay this way, MF build will be more of a traditional one.
That being said, my name is Leon.
I finished Season 6 in Silver, but had I played more, I could have ended up higher.
MF is my main ADC; she helped me get out of Bronze, and I continued to climb with this champion.
This is my first guide ever; sorry for the lack of appealing designs and visual aids, but I would like to improve it in coming days.
Unfortunately, I am currently in school for a doctorate's degree, and it's much harder than I expected :(.
I will try to update it little by little during downtime in school.
Thanks for reading!
I won the raffle the other day and I now have the Star Guardian skin. Thank you MobaFire!
I've been thinking about lethality build lately.
I think it has some cons but can't ignore the pros.
1) It builds faster than the crit build due to Youmuu and Drakthar being cheaper than Essence Reaver and Infinity Edge
2) Deleting squishies and snowball potential
3) Yoummuu and Drakthar doesn't depend on each other (as opposed to crit build, where you need both Essence Reaver and Infinity Edge to be effective)
I still favor the crit build, but I'll be trying out both.
Finally decided to move my fat booty to update for Rune Reforged and other stuff.
Thus far I've only played 2 games with lethality build and I'm 1-1 (one game, I had 0-7 Yasuo and 1-6 Gangplank and lost; the other game, I had semi-inting Jinx mid but still won).
Rest of the games are with crit build. I don't exactly know my win rat but I know I have more wins than losses (at one point in time, I was like 10-5 using a crit build; and that's just straight up picking MF every single game, no counter-picking against opposing ADCs).
I still prefer the crit build, but I'd pick lethality build if the opposing team has no tank (or just 1 tank at most).
Now onto Rune Reforged, I think this patch solidified MF's position as one of the best lane bully ADCs.
The reason for that, is her Q (Double Up).
1) It gives you a good range if you poke your opponent through a minion or better yet, melee supp. If you position well, your opponent doesn't even have a chance to counter-poke you.
2) Deals good damage, especially if you can proc crit via killing the fist target (most likely a minion). Once you have at least one attack damage item (BF Sword, Serrated Dirk, Caulfield's Warhammer, etc; not just a single Long Sword), crit strike off of Q deals half the Health of the opposing ADCs.
3) Additional damage via Arcane Comet (more on that later)
4) Auto attack (AA), Q, auto attack combo. Q resets the AA timer, so best-case scenario, you can go AA, Q, AA, which deals good amount of damage in a very short period of time. Late game ADCs (Vayne, Twitch, Xayah, Kalista, etc.) can't deal this much damage during the lane phase.
More in-depth later. Thank you for reading the update!
Just finished my last rotation for pharmacy school; about 6 weeks then I'll be a pharmacist!
For Patch 8.6, not much has changed about MF.
I've been using both crit and lethality builds; they both have pros and cons.
My conclusion is: if the opposing team has 2+ tanks, go with the crit; if the opposing team is full of squishies, then go with lethality.
Crit build provides consistently high damage from both abilities (Q Double Up and R Bullet Time) and basic attacks against both squishies and tanks.
Lethality deletes squishies with R Bullet Time and also with Q Double Up.
There are pros and cons with both builds, so I would use this rule of thumb to determine which build path to take.
This flexibility is one of the strengths of MF.
As far as her place is concerned, hasn't changed much either.
Essentially, the ulti Bullet Time determines how successful you will be while playing as MF.
If you place Bullet Time good enough to involve multiple opponents for the majority of the duration, you will provide massive damage to gain kill(s) or clean up with basic abilities and autos.
Otherwise, you will struggle.
Team composition is extremely important 1) so your teammates can keep the opponents away from you while you are ulting and 2) get multiple hits.
Aaaaaand, I graduated from a pharmacy school. I am officially a doctor of pharmacy now!
You shall call me Dr. Daddy Awesome Sauce.
Anyways, I just read the preview of upcoming patch 8.11.
I think this will ruin my crit build for MF.
The reasons being:
1) Infinity Edge and Essence Reaver no longer offers crit.
2) As far as I can tell, in order to build crit, you'll have to invest in attack speed + crit items ( Statikk Shiv, Phantom Dancer, Rapid Firecannon).
These items are not necessary bad for MF, but she is not too reliant attack speed items
3) MF gets a burst of attack speed via W Strut. Plus the majority of team fight damage comes from her ult Bullet Time, which doesn't require attack speed.
4) Hence by investing in items that gives you attack speed, you're wasting stats.
So, I'm not feeling this new update, but we'll see.
It's funny, because I was a big proponent of crit MF build and not so much for Youmuu + Drakthar's after flat armor penetration nerf (now known as lethality).
I think lethality will be the mainstay of MF build, unless there is a new item that offers crit without investing in attack speed.
I was on some tilt streak and got bored so I decided to play MF with more traditional (DPS) ADC build in ranked games, which I'm going to discuss in this guide.
It wasn't as bad as I thought; I would say it's a viable build with more than 50% winrate (based on my experience).
I think it's a fun build with a lot of overlooked potential.
The early game is definitely weaker with DPS build.
It kinda messes up my farming and lane pushing.
Late game, the combination of 100% crit chance, true damage, and attack speed boost from W Strut can be insane.
Also has a lot of potential for kiting due to movement speed bonus from Fleet Footwork, Celerity, Strut, and Zeal items.
The only con is that ADC is currently falling out of the meta (sadly), so are DPS builds.
I've been seeing mages and fighters taking bot lane, so lethality build actually fits the current meta better.
Hence overall, I think MF is one of the better ADC right now due to being able to use lethality effectively.
That being said, I think lethality is better on MF overall.
However, top rated MF guides are lethality builds, so why does the world need another lethality MF guide?
So I'm going to go with DPS on this guide (with lethality on the second page).
Long time no see y'all.
I have been pretty busy as I am now working fulltime as a pharmacist.
(plus I grab extra shifts so most of the times, I am working overtime $$$).
Prior to this update, I had my guide as crit/DPS based MF, and I have to admit, it wasn't a good build.
I think lethality is the way to go for MF, so I will be updating accordingly.
Once again, long time no see y'all.
Still keeping myself busy as a pharmacist, occasionally going overtime.
(I used to do overtime more often, but I've started to realize the physical and mental fatigue makes it questionable whether it's worth doing. Gotta take care of yourself and work + life balance first, right?).
This season, I haven't had much success with Miss Fortune.
In all honesty, my ranked win % with MF has been in the 30's, (YIKES!)
I had better luck in top lane and bot wise, I'm finding some success with Ashe and Kai'Sa.
I've been checking out other MF guides and I'm seeing some of them incorporating crits.
Which makes me happy, since I'm an advocate for crit MF build (while the current meta/her play style makes lethality builds more feasible for her, in my humble opinion).
Hence in this update, I have lethality as main build and crit as secondary build.
Following is the reason I believe lethality is favored over DPS/Crit build for MF:
1) MF has short auto attack range (as opposed to Twitch, Jinx).
2) MF has no maneuverability (as opposed to Tristana, Xayah, Lucian, Kai'Sa, Vayne, etc.)
3) Due to 1 and 2, MF is hard to kite with and vulnerable to being caught out with auto attacks.
4) Hence, MF is dependent on poking from range with Q Double Up and team fighting with her ult Bullet Time. Lethality build is better for maximizing Q and R damage and costs less.
MF is more dependent on your teammates than other ADC's, since the your ult setup makes a huge difference in a team fight; your teammates need to peel you while you're ulting.
Lane bully with Q and AA timer-reset technique; burst damage
Passive movement speed boost, active attack speed boost
Ultimate deals massive damage in a big cone
Mediocre basic attack range
Lack of descent escape mechanism/maneuvering and gap closer
Q may be difficult to hit
No hard CC
Ult needs to be well-placed to be effective
Use Heal to save yourself, support, or team from dying, or help escape (using Heal causes movement speed boost).
You can also use the movement speed boost from Heal to catch an escaping opposing champ to finish them off (but Flash is probably better for that purpose).
Use Flash to escape or secure kill.
They can be a lifeline to possibly get out of a sticky situation (especially since MF lacks effective maneuvering mechanism).
Press the Attack (PTA) will give you consistent performance, since your auto-attack-Q-auto attack combo will proc it.
Dark Harvest was pretty OP before the end of the Season 8.
However, with the change to Dark Harvest in Patch 8.23, the stacks aren't readily available and the paradigm has been shifted to the opposite direction.
That is, the previous Dark Harvest brought upfront damage when you had the soul frag; it was good to burst down the squishy opposing champion.
And you could consistently collect the souls from cannon minions and jungle monsters.
Now, the soul can only be collected from the opposing champions < 50% their health (and that's when the damage procs).
It is now good for finishing up low health enemies.
I think it's still a good keystone for MF.
However, you'll have to be aggressive in lane to bring your oppenent's health down in order to collect soul fragments.
If you struggle in lane, this keystone has small impact later in the game.
Dark Harvest- please read above. But let me just mention that it probably works well with Coup de Grace.
Taste of Blood is a good sustain during laning phase. Cheap Shot is alright.
Zombie Ward synergizes well with Duskblade of Draktharr, which is most likely the first item you'll be getting. When you spot an enemy ward with Duskblade, you should kill it (obviously, unless your enemy is protecting it and can't do so safely), and it'll turn in to your ward. That's killing two stones with one bird (yes, I know what I just said). Vision control is very important in this game.
A nice perk was added to this rune this season, which is gaining additional adaptive force when you take down a ward. More reason to buy Control Wards.
Ravenous Hunter will give you another sustain, which is helpful especially during the lane phase. Ultimate Hunter is nice, that it decreases the cooldown on your ultimate additionally. Very tough choice.
Legend: Alacrity to augment your attack speed, Coup de Grace for more damage against low health champion.
Press the Attack.
PTA procs when you attack the same opposing champion in 3 succession.
When proc'ed, the affected champion takes bonus damage and becomes vulnerable to more damage.
MF's Q Double Up adds the stack of PTA, so when you go for auto attack - Q - auto attack combo, it procs PTA.
Which is very nice, since you'll be using this combo a lot due to auto attack reset benefit (in fact, essential).
"Vulnerability to more damage" part is more helpful when you need to take down tanks or bruisers.
Any of them would work, but I'd like to recommend Presence of Mind.
This runes gives you a 10% refund on your ult's cooldown upon kill or assist, so Bullet Time is more readily available.
And it's very important to have your ult readily available, since your ult placement can decide the fate of team fights.
Potentially, you can get 50% CD on your ultimate per full team fight.
Also, 20% mana refund is very attractive, as MF is mana hungry.
Triumph is a good rune too, due to additional gold and sustain.
You only get 20 gold for each takedown, which is about 1 minion worth.
Not much, but you can even proc it on assists, so not a bad deal.
Plus, restoring 12% of the health upon takedown (whether kill or assist) can save your *** (which is very tilting for the opponents, if you were going to die but survived due to Triumph sustain), and you have an opportunity to score more takedowns if the fight is still going on.
Legend: Alacrity is my pick.
It's especially beneficial for lethality build, since Berserker's Greaves is the only attack speed item I build.
Hence, Alacrity is a good way to supplement her attack speed.
Alacrity gives 3% AS + 15% AS as the game goes on. Good deal.
Coup de Grace (CDG) seems to be the best one, although I like Cut Down as well.
When you hit the AA-Q-AA combo on a squishy champion, there is a pretty good chance that the opponent meets the threshold for CDG (< 40% health).
It'll be easier to finish them up with W Strut activated basic attacks.
Plus, CDG applies to all champions that are < 40% health; if you can get multiple targets in your ult Bullet Time, you can deal more damage to those champions.
Cut Down helps fight tanks, since she doesn't have any tank shreds (unlike Vayne or Blade of the Ruined King builders.)
Could be a good pick when you see multiple tanks on the opposing team after all champions are locked in.
Sorcery for secondary.
Celerity is a good fit for MF.
W Strut gives her passive movement speed bonus until she takes a damage.
Hence, it works pretty well given her high movement speed, as she gets additional movement speed from this rune based on her bonus movement speed.
Gathering Storm slowly increases her AD = more damage late game.
When playing as MF, you want to finish the game ASAP since she doesn't scale enough against late game hypercarries ( Vayne, Tristana, Jinx, etc.)
If the game goes to late game and your team is being destroyed by a hypercarry, your only chance of winning is destroying the opposing team with your well-placed ult.
With all the attack damage items and Gathering Storm, you can turn the game around with your ult.
I would like to take attack speed (to compensate for the lack of attack speed items in this build), 1 adaptive force bonus stats for more damage, and armor bonus stat for lane survival (unless you're faced with some weird AP bot).
Every time she hits a new target, she deals extra damage.
Take this to your advantage to last hit minions in early game.
Applying Love Tap decreases the cooldown of W Strut.
Love Tap also applies to turrets; if opposing minions are around opponents' turret, combine this passive ability with your W Strut to effectively take down turret and minions.
By alternating between a turret and minions, you're applying Love Tap every time and can continuously use Strut by decreasing the cooldown. That's efficient.
Q Double Up
For active abilities, I like to max Q Double Up first due to its poke potential.
When you have an attack damage item and increased levels on Double Up, the critical hit (off of a dead target) will deal half the health to the opposing ADC.
It's insane, not fun for them.
Even without critical hit, it still deals a good amount of damage.
Another good part of Q Double Up is that it resets the auto attack timer.
Hence the best case scenario, you can go AA --> Q --> AA in quick succession, dealing chunk of damage.
Here is a demonstration of the Q auto attack reset technique:
Here are a few more caveats on Double Up:
1) The target area behind the original target is in a cone; if there's nothing in the cone, the bullet just falls.
2) The range on Q isn't quite stellar, and can be easily blocked by minions.
When good players are opposing MF, they would know not to stand right behind their minions to avoid Double Up.
Thus hitting Q requires skills. Consider re-positioning so the your opposing ADC is in the target area behind the first target.
3) Once the opposing champion is in the cone of Double Up behind the original target and you take the shot, the opponent cannot escape from the shot (whether walking away from the area, Flash, dash, jumps, etc.).
One of the few exceptions is Sivir's spell shield.
4) Double Up has relatively low Mana cost and cooldown. Don't hesitate to use it.
W Strut is my second ability to maximize. Its passive increases movement speed and active boosts attack speed.
The passive helps getting back to your lane faster, dodging your opponents' pokes, and gives her high mobility in general (but not a gap-closer or reliable escape method).
Activate your W when you're attacking the turret (especially when there's no opposing champion around), pushing the lane, clearing minions, and going all in for fights.
Keep in mind, you'll lose your passive movement speed boost when you take a damage.
Activate your W to instantly boost your movement speed to catch escaping opponents or escape from opponents.
When you apply your passive, Love Tap, cooldown on W decreases by a flat amount.
When clearing minion waves or pushing, activate your W and target different a minion each attack; this will 1)increase damage to minions by applying Love Tap and 2) decreases cooldown on W so you can activate W again as soon as the duration ends.
When attacking a turret, you can activate your W, then switch between attacking the turret and minions since Love Tap is applied to turrets as well.
(in the other words, attack turret, minion, turret, minion, turret, and so on).
I know I'm being repetitive, but I want to be as comprehensive as possible on this guide.
E Make it Rain is the last priority for basic skills.
It doesn't do too much damage since it scales off of Ability Power. What a shame.
It's still useful for pokes during laning phase and mid-late game.
But keep in mind, E uses relatively high amount of Mana and has relatively high CD.
You definitely don't wanna spam it during the laning phase; try to save it for hard engaging and zoning.
Make It Rain applies slow to the opponents, which is a plus.
You can use Make it Rain to help you and your teammates secure kills for ganks and/or escape.
R Bullet Time makes MF a team fight threat.
Bullet Time has a big zone where it deals massive damage, so you want to use it when opposing champions are aggregated.
Bullet Time can be interrupted with stuns, knock back, silence, scare, and of course, death etc.
Hence, you want to make sure you're not using this ability when you're too close to opposing champions capable of these abilities (there are too many to name; it's important that you know all the champions).
Ideally, you want to be standing behind your tanks when you activate your ult.
You want to get as many opposing champions in the area as possible.
MF is not the best in terms of initiating a teamfight.
Try to wait for a good CC from your teammates to maximize your damage from Bullet Time.
There are some other circumstances where you have to use your ult otherwise.
For example, 1) you can use your ult to save the tower (when you're by yourself at the tower and you have multiple opponents trying to take down the tower; clear the minion waves and give them some damage to deter them from taking a down the turret), 2) if you're ally(s) are caught in a bad position, activate your ult to make the opponents back away, etc.
Hence the pearls are: 1) try to get as many opposing champions as possible; use your professional judgement, 2) your ult can be interrupted in many ways, and 3) You can cancel your ult as well; weigh risk vs. benefits of continuing your ult or walk away.
Overall, grab Q first then E at level 2 for pokes. W at level 3.
Maximize Q there after, then W, and lastly E.
Grab and upgrade R whenever possible.
Doran's Blade and Health Potion.
Doran's Blade gives you small attack damage, health, and life steal.
Then spend the rest on 1 health pot.
However, instead you can consider getting a Long Sword and Refillable Potion or 3 Health Potions if you are very comfortable with MF... and dare.
MF is a strong champion early game, so you'll most likely end up even (or better) against your opposing AD laner.
If you can do well starting with Long Sword, you'll be rewarded handsomely with better access to lethality items.
You also should consider Doran's items have low sale value.
Try to grab Serrated Dirk if you have enough gold.
If not, grab its components, Long Sword.
If out of pots, I prefer Refillable Potion since it's pretty much enough to get me through the laning phase (unless I'm really behind), and it's refillable; that's efficient.
If you don't have 150 gold or don't feel comfortable with the green pot, you can grab Health Potion(s).
Since W Strut gives you passive movement speed bonus (60 at level 1), Boots of Speed is not necessary for the first few backs.
If I had 300 gold, I would rather get a Dagger or of course, Control Ward.
First item & boots:
Duskblade of Draktharr is most likely the first completed item you should get.
It gives you good attack damage, lethality, and cooldown reduction.
"Nighstalker" deals additional damage if you have been unseen for > 1 second.
This goes well with her passive Love Tap, as it also deals bonus damage to bring more upfront damage.
You should have this item completed during the laning phase, which you can use "Nightstalker" for more lane bullying.
"Blackout" is a good effect as you can clear an enemy vision (plus if you go with Domination route, you can turn it in to your team's vision if you take Zombie Ward).
After Duskblade of Draktharr, your goal should be to build Youmuu's Ghostblade.
This item gives you almost identical stats as Duskblade of Draktharr, except slightly lower lethality.
The unique passive of additional movement speed adds to your W Strut movement speed bonus, and the unique active of 20% movement speed gain can be used to get to lanes, team fights, kiting, and/or chasing.
Lethality is very effective on MF since she can deal a ton of damage through her Q Double Up and R Bullet Time.
You won't get the same effect from crit builds.
You can get the boots items in between.
Berserker's Greaves is my choice as it is the only source of her attack speed from an item in this build.
This will increase her DPS on top of her Q and R damage.
Most of the times, I end up picking Mortal Reminder since a lot of times, there will be at least one champ on the opposing team that's healing or life steal dependent ( Dr. Mundo, Vayne, Draven, Swain, Garen, Tryndamere, Vladimir etc.).
Mortal Reminder not only provides grievous wound, but also the armor penetration you need to fight tanks.
So pick Mortal Reminder if opponents' healing or life steal is a problem
Otherwise, pick Lord Dominik's Regards
I love The Black Cleaver, I really do; it provides Health, CDR, and most importantly armor reduction ON THE TARGET ITSELF.
In the other words, your whole team benefits from it (while Lord Dominik's and Mortal Reminder only benefits you).
Consider picking The Black Cleaver if: 1) your team is AD heavy and 2)nobody else on your team has picked up Black Cleaver.
MF's ult is a good ability to apply stacks of Black Cleaver.
First off all, it's situational whether you should get life steal item before armor pen or vice versa.
If you are ahead, you can go ahead and grab a life steal item.
If you are behind or an opposing tank is a problem, go ahead and grab armor pen item.
My choice for life steal is Death's Dance as you can heal from her R Bullet Time as well, as opposed to The Bloodthirster (BT), you can only heal from the basic attack and Q Double Up.
But BT has the higher healing % and the shield you get is a plus, which makes it a good alternative.
Note, Death's Dance also gives you 10% CDR.
It also has an interesting passive of converting some of the damage you take into a damage over time.
This could save you as you have an opportunity to heal off of nearby minions, jungle camps, or opposing champions.
Mercurial Scimitar is interesting since it provides magic resist and active to remove crowd control effect from your champion and movement speed boost.
Movement speed boost can be used whenever to dodge or catch up to opponents.
It's all situational.
1) Edge of Night might be a good choice on MF.
It blocks an incoming enemy spell, similar to Banshee's Veil.
The caveat is that for Edge of Night, you can choose when to activate the active effect.
So you can activate Edge of Night before using ult, so you have better chance of safely using your ult.
Also provides lethality and some health, which is always welcome.
2) Maw of Malmortius if you need some magic resist and additional attack damage; good choice if you are being one-shotted.
The shield and additional life steal upon activation the passive is nice.
3) Or you can grab any of the previously mentioned items you didn't pick up, depending on a situation.
For example, if you grabbed Mortal Reminder as armor pen, you can still get The Black Cleaver as the last item.
Or if you grabbed Death's Dance as life steal, you can still grab Mercurial Scimitar for additional life steal, magic resistance, and debuff removal.
General item sequence:
1) Duskblade of Draktharr
2) Youmuu's Ghostblade
3) Berserker's Greaves
4) Get life steal item if you're ahead or opponents' armor is not a problem.
Get armor penetration item if opponents' armor is a problem
5) Get whichever you didn't get from #4
6) Last pick
Now, I will briefly talk about crit build.
The starting items are the same. You can either start Doran's Blade (safer) or Long Sword (better access to Caufield's Warhammer and Essence Reaver).
Essence Reaver is my choice for first item- the raw damage is less than what Infinity Edge provides, but Mana sustain and CDR is very nice.
My next buy is Infinity Edge which provides massive damage.
If I don't have enough to buy the expensive components of Infinity Edge, I will most likely start building Berserker's Greaves.
The rest (armor pen, life steal, last item) is pretty much the same.
Please see the cheat sheet for highly synergistic champions.
Other examples of synergistic champs are: Blitzcrank, Jax, Wukong, Orianna, Annie, Braum, Kennen, Nami, Nunu & Willump, Zac, Warwick, Taric, Sion, Shen, Rammus, Nautilus
Alistar, Janna: Now, don't get me wrong; I'm just saying they're POTENTIALLY antagonistic.
Jenna's ult can knock opposing champions away from your ult, and so is Alistar's knock back.
Depending on your support's skill level, they could work no problem.
If they choose Alister or Jenna, communication is important so they don't end up saving opponents from your ult.
Here is one of the better synergistic plays with Miss Fortune that I've seen in my life:
She has high movement speed but it fades once she takes damage and she is not a mobile champ in terms of gap-closer/escape method.
Since her auto attack range isn't long and doesn't have good scaling, she is a poor auto-attacker.
However, her Q Double Up, combined with auto attack timer reset technique, gives high potential for poke, while R Bullet Time can destroy the entire opposing team.
Early game, your role is to bully your opposing ADC.
Deal damage, deny farm, make them use pots, make them go back to base, and score kills.
But don't make yourself vulnerable to counter pokes or ganks.
Mid game, help your team control objectives (dragons, Rift Herald, and towers).
With your passive Love Tap, you can push lanes and take towers efficiently.
Join team fights; use your basic abilities and auto attacks for small fights and skirmishes.
Try to save your ult Bullet Time for when you have multiple opponents aggregated.
But if securing a kill on a single opponent seems more important, then don't hesitate to use your ult.
Late game, your basic attacks are no longer effective.
However, you're still effective at pushing lanes and taking down the towers.
Use your Q Double Up and E Make it Rain for pokes.
Try to save your ult Bullet Time after your teammates have engaged and CC'ed the opponents.
In real life though, bullying is not cool.
Let's not bully anyone at school, work, Internet, etc.
