Hello Guys :) this is my first build in MobaFire and i think you will like it :)

First of all Lets see about Nocturne's Advantages

1: Nocturne is a great assassin and a FULL DPS player.
2: He can go Solo Lane almost with all enemy players, Even Warwick.
3: Noc's Ultimate works as a quick path for Noc to kill low life enemy champions and help in teamfights when he is in a distance and gank enemies for sure kill ;)
4: Noc is also a good farmer Since his great passive Umbra Blades


1: Since the double nerf Riot did on Noc Duskbringer and his Ultimate deals less damage.
2: At early games it is easy for Noc to get killed since he has low life so thats why you take Vampiric Scepter as first item and Armor Runes.
3: Also at early games Noc deals a poor amount of damage but thats ok cuz of your armor penetration runes and the "Sure kill combo"
4: Noc's Mana goes away easily so try to use it wisely ;)

Every 10 seconds, Nocturne's next attack strikes surrounding enemies for 120% of his physical damage and heals himself for 15 / 20 / 25 per target hit. Nocturne's basic attacks reduce this cooldown by 1 second.

Umbra Blades: Just a great passive that causes a lot of damage to enemies on 1v1 Making Noc a hard opponent to kill, great farmer and great jungler

Nocturne throws a shadow blade which deals physical damage 60 / 105 / 150 / 195 / 240 (+0.75 per bonus attack damage), leaves a Dusk Trail, and causes champions who are hit to also leave a Dusk Trail for 5 seconds. While on the trail, Nocturne ignores unit collision and has increased Movement Speed 15% / 20% / 25% / 30% / 35% and Attack Damage 15 / 25 / 35 / 45 / 55.

Duskbringer: This is the basic abillity for a sure kill. With a big range and a lot of damage (thats why you have to finish this abillity first) Noc hits his target leaving behind him a dusk path which allowes Noc to chase his enemy with increased movement speed and attack damage.

Nocturne empowers his blades, passively gaining attack speed 20% / 25% / 30% / 35% / 40%. Activating Shroud of Darkness allows Nocturne to fade into the shadows, creating a magical barrier for 2 seconds which blocks a single enemy ability and doubles his passive attack speed for 5 seconds if successful.

Shroud of Darkness: A great abillity that can counter every Abillity and every Ultimate if you activate it on time. This abillty's passive gives Nocturne a bonus attack speed which is very useful in early games since Noc's items are a little expensive. Countering an abillity Nocturne empowers his blades and his passive attack speed for 5 seconds

Nocturne plants a nightmare into his target's mind, dealing damage each second for total 50 / 100 / 150 / 200 / 250 (+100% of ability power) over 2 seconds and fearing the target for 1 / 1.25 / 1.5 / 1.75 / 2 seconds if they do not get out of range by the end of the duration.

Unspeakable Horror: Great abillity for chasing an enemy. It causes damage every second and if the target don't get out of range for 2 seconds it puts a nightmare in his mind and then the target is feared allowing you to cause damage undisturbed.

Nocturne reduces the sight radius of all enemy champions and removes their ally vision for 4 seconds, this includes champions, minions, wards and towers. He can then launch himself at a enemy champion with a large range 2500 / 3250 / 4000. Deals 150 / 300 / 450 (+1.2 per bonus attack damage) physical damage on arrival.

Paranoia: Noc's Ultimate. Great to surprize and killing low life enemies. With an ultra big range it is great to get involved in teamfights which you are far away from. It also has a great effect, It reduces enemy player's sight disabling them of seeing their allies (if you play with enemies unexpirienced on enemy Noc it drives them mad ;))

How to get a sure kill!!!!

Well... Here is the combo for a sure kill with Noc

When you are in a 3v3 solo lane you can wait your target into the bushes and take a sure kill with this abillity sequence...

Firstthen you start chasing your enemy doingif the enemy has a stun abillity you can useto counter his attack and increase your damage. Then if you let your target with low life and he goes on turret useand THEN RUN!!!!!!! :P.

Nocturne getscuz it is a great item for early games giving Noc damage, lifesteal and armor. It also has a very useful active which is a ward. Use it in your advantage. You can put it in front of the Lizard and then you don't have to worry about ganks or you can put it in the jungle. Now if You notice an enemy in the jungle you can immidiately KILL him. Lets see how

Firstthenthenand you are done ;)

Tip: In teamfights. NEVER FOCUS ON TANK!!!! and never do your combo on a tank. It is just useless and you might get killed. Oh and use your Summoner Spells :)

Situational items

Guys here is the deal. Almost every LoL player focus on the DPS build and how to cause more and more damage. THATS COMPLETELY WRONG!!!! if you have strong late game opponents like Xin-Zhao, Jax, Kata etc what u have to do is to takefor AD enemies orfor AP enemies (in my opinion Thornmail is OP item o.O they have to nerf it) Thats all about defensive items.

Now lets see about offensive items.

When you take your first Bloodthirster if you want your game to get involved in a good way you have to see if all of your enemies are getting killed easily by you. If yes what you have to do is to get aif not you are getting afor increased AS thenand then your Bloodthirster and then.

If you manage to complete your build and want to deal more damage you can sell yourand buy a Bloodthirster or buy a. That depends on you and your opponents.
