BAN DARIUS EVERY SINGLE GAME. YOU DO NOT WANT TO FACE HIM!!!
You need flash in case you get ganked or get caught out by an agressive top laner early game. Late game you will probably use it to catch out an overextended ADC.
Ignite works good against Tank Lanes since they will respect you early game and let you free farm and you will always come out ahead. If you get ganked make sure to use Ignite and focus down the Jungler first.
Font of Life: This will work great on lanes where you can't force someone out of lane, especially duelers. The best part about this rune is that it works great with your ultimate on teamfights where you just ram in (get it? xD) and your teammates heal you.
Demolition: This rune works against Tank Lanes because you will always be able to bully them out of lane.
Iron Skin: This rune simply depends who you're facing. If it's a heavy AD laner take it, else take Conditioning.
Conditioning: Best rune in slot since you get extra tanky stats at the expense of a weaker early lane. Since you can build items in lane you can either take this or Iron Skin.
Overgrowth: You get free HP for staying in lane. Great vs tanky laners.
Second Wind: This is a great way to sustain when facing duelers or poke lane champions since you won't be bullied out of lane so easily.
Zombie Ward: You don't want to get caught out and this is the best rune to help you with that since Ghost Poro resets too often in top lane.
Cheap Shot: It has a 4s cooldown and works great to deal some extra damage that doesn't require you to E forward.
Sudden Impact: You will prefer to take this rune against Poke Lanes because they will be squishy and you are easily able to stay on top of them to finish them off. This will also work better against Tank Lanes because you will have long extended fights where you autoattack a lot.
Ravenous Hunter: This rune will work great with your W giving you both a big shield and a lot of HP in teamfights. Only take this against Poke Lanes to sustain better in lane or Tank Lanes to improve your fighting potential in long fights.
Abyssal Mask: Best item for Ornn that gives you crazy sustain and damage on your W.
Iceborn Gauntlet: This item will give you a lot of chasing and dueling potential because the ram is slow moving.
Ninja Tabi / Sorcerer's Shoes: Ninja Tabi works better against Duel Lanes so they can't burst you and your sustained damage is better. Sorcerer's Shoes will shred tanks and squishys. Never get Mercury's, your W disables CC abilities on you.
Warmog's: This item will make you have strong shields for fights. Since you have a lot of sustain mid to late game you will never have to back once you build this item. The passive effect will affect you by the time you buy this item.
Thornmail: This item will help you against both Duel champions and ADCs to reduce their healing. You will be able to 1v1 almost anyone after completing this item.
Sunfire Cape: Extra sustain damage for the late game fights. The damage from it combined with Abyssal Mask is more that people give it credit for.
Liandry's Torment: This item will synergize great with your Sorcerer's Shoes and give you great Assassination potential over squishy targets. Besides, since most squishy targets won't be building Magic Resist you will basically deal true damage to them. Don't underestimate Ornn's damage. Only build this when you build Sorcerer's Shoes.
