Then I started reading and learning about the game, and from the various posts in forums that I read, I uderstood that Sivir was not that good a champion, that I shold go with others since She was Nerfed and stuff... (I didn't play her before, but if this is Light Sivir, OMG I really wish I could play with the old one!)
Played various champions and went back to my old love, and then built her properly, at least for MY playstile...
1) Regen my mana: a lot of Vlads scaped for I had no mana for that last boomerang early game
2) Attack faster: I don't know what people mean by true DPS but attacking 112 x 2.5 times a second with doing 90+% crits is fine by me
3) Support my boomerang: a bit of AP wont hurt
This matters only Early game, later items will do the rest.
I use Heal as my other spell, yes heal. "What a Noob" is what people say... well, while you hit me early game, and exaust me, and ignite me, I just keep hitting you, then heal, then kill you trying to run away, hell maybe then I'll even take your turret minute 4. "But Potions Dude, use potions!" Potions costs. I want to buy a Zeal by the time you equip full boots. Every cent counts, so I "sacrifice" one summoner spell to gain a lot. Of course you may play a diferent style, this is what work for ME, never forget that when we meet on the lane just before the nice lady sais "Welcome to Summoner's Rift"
Start with Regrowth Pendant, when you have 375 gold (2-3 minutes of play) go back and purchase Philosopher's Stone. It's important not only to your economy but for your mana regeneration as well. Then teleport back, your opponent will be still traying to kill the last minions you left with him. Now you have a little (very little) mana regen, so you can afford your Ricochet (a little and only to push)
When your teleport refreshes you'll have enough to buy several things. Preference: Maki Pendant + Boots + Tear of the goddess + Null-Magic mantle + Mercury's talons. If you did a few kills and to all the minions you took the final hit, then It'll be enough for all of this.
By now a turret is no longer there, you can choose to push to the Inner turret or gank/support other lanes.
Then it's faily simple Get Manamune, never deactivate ricochet from then on, and start building zeals from Daggers. You need Phantom Dancers, but, never let any gold in store when you recall, so allways buy zeals, or daggers...
Finally, if you still haven't carried your team to victory, then remove the philosopher's for an Infinity edge. You have 99% crit chance, so, it'll hurt quite a lot.
You have to read the game. Sometimes Nashor's Tooth is good, you get a little AP boost, and a cooldown reduction to go with your boomerang. Sometimes you just need to get Defense but if it's going that way, maybe the game is already lost. Stark's Fervor is awesome if you must switch to support. But every choice you take comes from une less Phantom Dancer don't mess with your Philosopher's + Mercury's + Manamune awesome base.
And ofcourse On the Hunt when available.
When someone request mid, fight for it (Politely). But if you have to go Top or Bottom, go with a melee champ. Focus on one enemy at a time. Your teammate will have exaust or some stun at hand, roll with it. Don't leave him alone. You're not a tank, but with this build you can take some before running, you'll regen it anyways.
2v1? Let them push, turret hug, sit on top of it if you can. None can aproach it, and minions will keep exploding.
You'll be melting minions waves into gold.
Plese, feel free to comment. I'm hoping for some constructive feedback.
