Hey guys this is Extremione/FlipcoiN With my first guide up for you!
I decided to make a guide for Draven because I really like this Champion and often other people says that Im pretty good at playing him.Well so here I am, making a guide for you :)
The things I like about Draven is that he's diffrent, in a way he's easy and in a way he's not.
Like when ur playing draven in a teamfight you really need to concentrate for catching that freakin' spinning axe and meanwhile you deal tons of Dmg.

And this is why I decided to make a guide for Draven!

III.Lore of Draven

''The best' is wherever I decide to set the bar each day.''

Unlike his brother Darius, victory in battle was never enough for Draven. He craved recognition, acclaim, and glory. He first sought greatness in the Noxian military, but his flair for the dramatic went severely underappreciated. Thirsting for a method to share ''Draven'' with the world, he turned his attention to the prison system. There he carved out the celebrity he desired by turning the tedious affair of executions into a premiere spectacle.

At Draven's first execution, he shocked onlookers when he ordered the doomed prisoner to run for dear life. Just before the man managed to flee from sight, Draven brought him down with a flawless throw of his axe. Soon, all Draven’s executions became a gauntlet through which Noxian prisoners raced for a final chance at life. He used this trial as his own personal stage, and turned executions into a leading form of entertainment. He rallied onlookers into a frenzy, while desperate prisoners scrambled to evade him. They never succeeded. Rejecting the solemn, black uniforms of Noxian executioners Draven donned bright outfits and developed flashy signature moves to distinguish himself. Crowds flocked to see Draven in action, and tales of his performances spread quickly. As his popularity grew, so did his already-inflated ego. He belonged at the center of attention. Before long, the scope of his ambitions outgrew the population of Noxus. He decided that the glorious exploits of Draven should be put on display for the entire world.

IX.Item Explanation and Alternatives

This is what is working for me so that's why I chose em' =)
But you could For Example Grab a Maw of Malmortius Instead of The Black Cleaver
If you are getting dominated by a Caster Like Malzahar
And now when we are at it to get rid of the CC Problem You Could maybe need a Quicksilver Sash For enemies like Malzahar his ult can be pretty annoying >.>

VII.Skill Sequence

Ability Sequence
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18

Well you should know why I use this skill sequence
... but I use this skill sequence because that Spinning Axe is ur main harrassment ability
ur Blood Rush is for the ATKS boost and the Movement Speed boost and ur Stand Aside is just ur CC ^^

Skill priority is from left to right Whirling Death-> Spinning Axe-> Blood Rush-> Stand Aside

XII.Just a little video explaining his Abilities (=

/league-of-legends/ability/wicked-blades-499 (Passive) - Draven's Critical Strikes deal bonus physical damage over time. Spinning Axe also causes this effect even if it does not Critically Strike.

-This is 1 of the things ur enemies REALLY hate you for Because this time they finally got away but they didnt see ur damn passive/1 of the most awesome feelings is when they get away and u cant see em and like 5 seconds later there Bam [Insert Name] is legendary!

Spinning Axe - Draven's next attack will deal bonus physical damage. This axe will ricochet off the target high up into the air. If Draven catches it, he automatically readies another Spinning Axe. Draven can have two Spinning Axes at once.

- This is ur main Harassment abitlity and this is what hurts so freakin bad !

Blood Rush - Draven gains increased Movement Speed and Attack Speed. The Movement Speed bonus decreases rapidly over its duration. Catching a Spinning Axe will refresh the cooldown of Blood Rush.

-This is for Hunting down ur fleeing Victim, and for getting that ATK SPD boost when ur fighting them

Stand Aside - Draven deals physical damage by throwing his axes, knocking aside and slowing his targets.

-I freakin love this ability when ur victim is fleeing and is about to run to left at a corner then hurl them into the corner with this ability they get so confused that they wont know what happened!

Whirling Death(Ultimate) - Draven hurls two massive axes dealing physical damage to each unit struck. Whirling Death slowly reverses direction and returns to Draven after striking an enemy champion. Draven may also activate this ability while the axes are in the flight to cause it to return early. Deals less damage for each unit it hits and resets when the axes reverse direction.

-This is for the victims that u or ur teamm8's on another place on the map cant reach Rlly u gotta love it u can hit everywhere on the freakin map with it! =)

X.Summoner Spells

I recommend using Flash And Ghostfor Draven Simply because a flash is allways good and Movement speed is Awesome on Draven ;)

Here is some Alternatives:
Ignite: Well this is Also an pretty good alternative Because it will stack with ur Passive
Heal: If you feel very squishy then you can choose this but I wouldnt recommend it =)
Revive: you shouldnt die too much, so this wouldnt be useful except sometimes it can save a turret, I wouldnt recommend it since it kinda can help u feed..
Clairvoyance: It isnt ur job to get map domination... so nope >.>
Teleport:Well this is okay you can take this if you like to :)
Surge: I wouldnt take it But if you prefer it, then its up to you ^^
Promote: Nope this is a no go you only take this ability in a troll game or for fun...
Smite: Sure but this is a jungler Spell = then you shouldnt use the rest of this guide if you use this spell (=
Cleanse: Well you could go with this but for me its never a problem (=
Clarity: Why the **** should you? xD
Exhaust: Also an really good alternative I use this often instead of ghost =)

Yep he owns the world...Or at least the map..

XI.Alternative Boots!

Boots of Swiftness Ye they are an pretty good alternative cuz as I said Movement speed is good at draven =)

Ninja Tabi Ehhh Well if your against another AD carry in ur lane and he is owning u really bad then I maybe would recommend em xD (=

Mercury's Treads yea they are pretty good for draven they help a little of getting rid of the CC problem with the tenacity it provides and also provides som magic resistance these are pretty good if ur against Champions like Malzahar LeBlanc Ahri

Boots of Mobility Yea these are pretty good especially if ur dominating the game and want to run through lane to lane =)

Sorcerer's Shoes No only for troll game!

Ionian Boots of Lucidity Ehhm no wouldnt recommend that xD

Guide Top

XII.Alternative early build is stacking Doran's Blade... But why?

Well Doran's blade is a Cheap Item that provides you pretty good start stats
Like if you are stacking 3 doran's blades you get 210 HP 30 AD And 12% Lifesteal for only 1425
While u only get 45 Ad for 1650 By B.F. Sword

Guide Top

XIII.Other Alternatives

Youmuu's Ghostblade: Well this is also an alternative I dont like it that mutch but if its your style then go for it! :)

Atma's Impaler: Well I would only recommend this if you also buy another HP item like

Ionic Spark, Spirit Visage,or another item like that, so that you got atmas frozon mallet and 1 of the above Items ^^

More Alternatives is on the way =)
