Hello and welcome to this guide!




My name is Rasmus, I'm 20 years old, I'm born and raised in Denmark and I'm a professional League of Legends player/coach
I've been playing League of Legends for about 9 years, started back in Season 1 and got to high elo in season 3, peaking challenger for the first time in season 4, and been challenger ever since.
In season 8 i peaked Rank 13 on EUW with 922 lp, and in S9 i have peaked 1190 LP RANK 1

I'm streaming on where I'm trying to help others by showing my gameplay and explaining why i do things and so on. ( Come by and say hi! :))

In this guide I'm gonna explain how i play Nocturne, at the highest level on the soloq ladder (Challenger)

For runes you have the standard in Precision, and then in domination you go for ultimate hunter, so you will have the lowest CDR on your ultimate, which makes it below 1 minute at lvl 11, which is really really strong and hard to play against

Jungle Pathing

Jungle pathing is pretty simple, Either start Blue - gromp - scuttle - wolves into opposite full clear, or start red - golems - scuttle - raptors and then opposite jungle side full clear.
If you are looking for gangs or contesting stuff, you should be a lvl ahead now, which means you will win most skirmishes, and you will also be lvl 6 really fast.

What else?

Playing Nocturne have both strong and weak sides, you have to get 6 before you have strong impact on the game, and you wanna rush that as fast as possible, which means you would have to give up some early pressure ganging to farm up.
That's why i'm usually starting Red-Golems-Raptors-Scuttle ( oppisite of what enemy jungler took, if he didnt take any, go for the oppisite on the side you are one ) and then into rest full clear. This will mean you are lvl 4, took full clear and can look to gang, if you get a kill you will almost or mby be lvl 5 allready, if not you can reset and go back to farming golems-raptors and rest of jungle, maybe even scuttle if u have prio on your lanes.

Thx alot for reading through my guide and getting down here!

Nocturne is a great champion in the game that offers a lot to the team in different ways.
You can pick Nocturne if enemy team has a splitpusher, if you want to dive into their squishy backline and even more reasons, but these 2 are the most obvious good ones that everyone should take in mind, if they are thinking to either pick Xin Zhao or Nocturne as an example.

I would appreciate if you would drop a like if you enjoyed this guide, as it would help me a lot, and you can always check out my stream if you want to see some high elo gameplay or if you got any questions about anything ( i can answer most of the league related ones ;) )
