The reason you start with the sapphire is so that you can spam your abilities and hopefully not only farm but get someone in a position to get a kill. At level 4 your black shield should be leveled as it is a lifesaver for you or an ally in a potential gank. Your 1st item Catalyst and boots will allow you to stay in lane and farm, and help get successful ganks. Hopefully at around 10 or 11 minutes you should have rod sorceror's and almost a rylai's pending on how well you farm and gank. The rest is up to you after your 1st rylai's depending on if your team needs damage or tank get either the lich bane, for damage, or other rylai's for tank, since you aren't sacrificing damage for tank this item becomes very useful late game.
