Chapter 1

So the FIRST thing people think when they see this is.. NOOB! NOOB! OMG! well here. I can't do this DEWO style since i am at school but i will try to make it nice.

Tristana:

Pros:
- Very useful ult to set up ganks
- Can jump over walls and surprise attack
- Has one of the highest damage outputs in the game
- Pretty big flexibility
- Not so team dependant

Cons:
- Though she has range, she is somewhat of a glass cannon (deals damage but fairly squishy)
- Easy to shut down with a blind

Summoner spells:

exhaust: If you are trying to blind the DPS that has a higher output early game, or you are running away from a yi, or you are exchanging hits with a teemo, its REALLY helpful

Teleport: Lets you get to minion waves, get back and defend turrets/push them, lets you get behind enemies *via a ward* and overall its just good for getting things done.

Early Game:

Starting Item: Dorans Blade (then go to mid*****!!!!)

Mid is necessary so you get your creep kills, the strategy of this build is to get 3 dorans blades fairly early game, start with 1, go back when you have enough gold for 2 more! GET CREEP KILLS !!!! Why you ask?

Well ok,the dorans blade has these specs:

120 HP
6 Damage
4% lifesteal
Multiply that by 3
so... 360 HP, 18 Dmg, 12% lifesteal

That is a good base to have early, solid lifesteal and a really good HP base, the damage also helps! Trust me you are NOT squishy after this.

The next item i get is the Sword of the Occult! WHY?! because well this is the best possible early game. You can get even more kills on ganks with the Sword
After the sword work on Berzerkers Grieves.


Mid Game:

Ok next you start working on a Frozen mallet. You are getting the dps from the sword which at this point should have 8-10 stacks (40-50 dmg) which is pretty damn good. The frozen mallet will add more health and a slow!

After the mallet is done sell off a blade and work on a black cleaver. getting the BF sword then the full recipe. I dont sell the other 2 dorans blades until i work on the bloodthirster, getting my vamp scepter first then the BF sword. As a final item i work for a Last Whisper. If they have tons of tanks i would also go for a bloodrazor. And thats about it.

Have fun with much owning
