Support Utility Draven #waitsupport?

By Tauricus2017
Hello everyone, my name is Tauricus, and I introduce you my fifth #waitsupport? - support Draven guide! First of all this is not suppose to be any real guide or something extremely serious. This is just my guide that you can but don't have to follow. The main reason why Draven isn't played as a support is that he doesn't bring any real form of CC or Heals to his ADC. This can change however. The build is aimed at utility. Glacial Augment allows you to slow enemies and helps your ADC to follow up. For the same purpose the build also contains Blade of the Ruined King and Bilgewater Cutlass. This build also contains a heal from Font of Life that can give your allies a bit more sustain. This build maybe can seem as a troll to someone but I don't care - you can always leave. Also one note: I am not forcing anyone to play support Draven - I know that this guide is gonna have a lot of -1s because it 'makes people trollpick' and also This guide is at your own risk.
Tips and Tricks
  • Chill ---- Raging Draven player will NEVER be as good as chilling one. Also don't be toxic and rather enjoy the game. If you will flame your ADC for every CS he/she missed you will never have as good time as you would If you would try to encourage her/him instead. So jump into the game type 'GLHF <3' in the very start, be positive, don't rage, say 'sorry' If you do a mistake, don't report players that are nice but feed, be cooperative, type 'GGWP' as you win/lose - It is only a game so Who cares If you win or lose as long as you have fun you are always a winner!!.
  • Warding is key to victory. So make sure you are constantly warding and upgrading Stealth Ward into Oracle Lens once your support item quest is completed
  • Most of Draven's power comes catching his Spinning Axe. Do not ignore it and accept it as a part of your kit.
  • Try to use Glacial Augment ice zone in jungle where paths are slim so the enemy will have no way to escape it.
  • Use your Stand Aside to block channeling spells of your enemies.
  • Make sure you recast Whirling Death slightly before it even reaches the target, since it always take some time until it starts coming back.
  • Make sure you use Glacial Augment passive in early game a lot. The second part of this keystone rune will be useful in mid to late game especially.
  • You can potentially Stand Aside + Flash to cast the ability instantly after flashing. This method is much more efficient then Flash + Flash + Stand Aside. Use it to kill running enemies.
  • Losing Adoration hurts a lot. Try to not die when you have some stacks of it. It is never worth to rush Kill for Kill situations for you.
  • By positioning yourself next to the wall the Spinning Axe will be much more focused on you when it starts coming back. Use this while killing a dragon to take a second breath from never ending catching.
How To Proceed When Buying Items
Building items on my support Draven build is a little bit complicated. I suggest starting by Spectral Sickle or Steel Shoulderguards first based on enemy support's range. Fill it up with Health Potions and Stealth Ward and you're good to go.

On first back make sure you buy Bilgewater Cutlass for a Glacial Augment proc that you want to upgrade into Blade of the Ruined King. Then go for some boots of your choice, based on situation:

Then make sure you buy once again Bilgewater Cutlass for another Glacial Augment proc. After that, continue by buying Statikk Shiv and Rapid Firecannon and then your building changes based on the fact If you want more utility or damage:
In Game
The early game is always different for Draven and so you have to play differently too based on situation.
  • When playing against poke supports like Lulu or Sona I suggest going Steel Shoulderguards path. Your job is to not get poked for 2 reasons. 1st the obvious one is to not get destroyed by their damage. 2nd the less obvious one is that they propably use Spellthief's Edge so every time they hit you with spell or autoattack they get money - less you get hit - less money they'll have - less damage they do. Their HP bars are however very low and they can be easily killed. Wait for their most dangerous abilities to go on cooldown ( Whimsy, Howling Gale, Aqua Prison, etc.) and then engage. With help of your junglers you can make easy kills because of their lack of movement abilities. Also do not forget to constantly ward so you have the best vision on map possible. Later on in the game you get enough power to kill most supports with ease. Try to punish them when they are alone (most likely to do deep warding or destroying Control Wards. In late game try to play safe and be prepared to engage a while after teamfight started so they don't have much CC abilities.
  • When playing against melee supports I suggest you to go Spectral Sickle path because it's procing is much easier If you have more range then them. Be prepared to attack them every time they go for CS with AA + Stand Aside + AA to get as much money as possible from Spellthief's Edge. Most of melee supports have got some strong skillshot abilities like Zenith Blade, Rocket Grab, Death Sentence, etc.. Make sure they won't hit you and engage when they are on cooldown. Make sure you focus the enemy ADC and not those tanky bois. You should consider building Lord Dominik's Regards later on If they have more tanks.
