Champion Build Guide
I've been Diamond for a few seasons. My account is "Cocho" on NA. To make this guide, I used my own experiences and reviewing high elo Samira players
Even in S10, Samira really wanted lifesteal. Being able to build items that both give her crit and lifesteal is ridiculous. Immortal Sheildbow with Bloodthirster makes you pretty hard to kill, giving you the opportunity to lifesteal back to full health. Samira also wants to jump into fights, this build helps you do that without dying instantly. Infinity Edge and crit in general has been nerfed, so you dont want to build it early.
Most of these runes you don't want to change, but you do have some options depending on what you prefer.
You can take any of these runes. One gives a shield, one gives health after a kill, one gives mana when trading. Pick whatever sounds the best to you.
Coup De Grace is standard (Far-left) but you could also take the middle one for tanks, or Last Stand (far-right) for Assassins. Immortal Shieldbow puts you at 30% health, and that's when Last Stand kicks in to give you a boost.
Building up her combo to ult is very important. You need to use unique abilities to stack it up, but there's a lot of tricks around it.
You should watch the video to have a better understanding, but if you don't want to, then some of the key things this video covers are these tricks:
1. You can auto between WE and the second hit of W.
2. You can weave an auto attack or Q before a W cast for 4 stacks.
(example being QQW or auto auto W.)
3. You can auto after WEQ if you have R.
4. E flash is faster and smoother than Flash E.
5. Hitting two opponents with E will count if you weave something in between the E hits.
6. Q E1 E1 W1 W2 works if QE input is fast enough
7. Coin > E will hide the coin animation. You can also flash coin.
8. You can E any enemy or teammate to hop over walls.
9. You can double E by casting E before an enemy dies.
10. Spamming Coin + Auto attack will make a BM annoying animation and sound
Here's some combos:

If you liked the combo video, I'll be making more samira videos in the future. I'll link them to this guide as I make them. So over time this guide will become longer.
