Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
Hello there and welcome to my Nocturne build/guide. A lot of you peopla may laguh when you first see this guide but is more effective then building straight AD. I played Nocturne a lot and tested every way to play him and finally found the best way.
Pros/Cons Of This Build/Guide
-A lot of survavibility which is important if you want to offtank
-Fair damage from Health/Atma combo
-Strong and fast jungling
-Cannot carry the game if there is a good farmed carry in your team
-Squishy in early and mid-game
I usually get Smite/Flash-You take smite because this build is concidering a jungler Nocturne-FLash is a good mobility spell and higly recommended that you take it. It has a high chance to save your life!!
Other viable spells:-Exhaust viable for ganking and getting their carries easly killed but i prefer flash over it-Ghost if you dont like flash then ghost is another good mobility spell tho it has drasticly less chance to save your life.
At level one i get a point at Duskbringer.
-On level 2 i get Shroud of darkness for that attackspeed bonus
-I get unspeakable horror on level 4 because on level 4 i finish my jungle route and i am ready to gank
-I max out Duskbringer first taking Paranoia whenever i can.
-Second i max out Shroud Of Darkness followed by ofcourse Unspeakable Horror
First i start at the Blue Golem (be sure that your team guards you to prevent getting ganked) when u get hit first time flip a pot and smite him when he gets to around 450 hp.
Go to the wolf camp and kill the alpha wolf first when u get to 80% hp flip a pot.
Next go to wraith camp and kill the blue wraith first and flip a pot soon as your last pot finishes.
Go to Red Lizard your smite should be ready by now so start killing him (flip a pot when you start the battle) and smite him when he gets to 500 hp.
Next up is golem camp go and kill both golems.
After that you should gank lanes or if every lane is doing good(being pushed by your team) then just go to base and continue jungling until u see a opportunity to gank.
You should always gank when you have a chance (your teams lane is being pushed) but AFTER you finished the standard route and get double buffed.
How To Gank?
Close the gap with Duskbringer walk up to him/her and use Unspeakable Horror and Shroud Of Darkness to block CC such as alistars Pulverize or Headbutt and then just continue attacking.
In mid game you are finished with your jungling and focus on pushing the turrets and getting kills.
You should always initiate a fight unless there is a stronger tank in your team. If not you go in right after him and jump to the carry with the most damage with our ultimate when you kill the strongest carry the fight should go on good since their damage dealer is dead go right to the other carries and focus them off with the help of your team.
In lategame its all about finishing the battle off once you win teamfights (their team got aced) you should go baron up (if the baron is up) and go push their last turrets.
