Really quality scores that prove that this guide works
People may tell you to build straight AP: but they are wrong. What do you get from that? I know one thing:
You sure as hell don't get any swag from it.
Yea, you may get some AP, but you are missing out on some really good stats that will increase your swag to the max. If you want to know a terrific build that even all my really good friends thing works (RosePhoenix and MissMaw!), read on:
Don't forget to swag!
For utility, instead of getting stupid mana regen which doesn't help you at all coz of your E, and because you are just that swaggy, get reduced death time and useless 0.5% increased movespeed!
With less time spent dead, you can spend more time swaggin'. Trust me here, I tried it, I know what works best.
However, I make sure to max my wall of PAIN first, because the more you max it, the more PAIN you can bring.
And we LOVE main as manly swagmen.
It also grows with each level, just like my...
This is the swaggiest way to learn your skills, hands down.
I TESTED IT!
Damage = Swag.
K and then make sure to take Clarity, coz then you can STAY IN LANE LONGER and in FIGHTS because it's REALLY A GOOD SPELL.
You can spam bubbles more, ya know? And you can bait ppl -- HEY IM OOM LOLJK SWAG!
So ya. Swag spells right here.
Why build wasteful ability power when you can build items with stats that REALLY MATTER?
Ok so we start with really good starting items -- one of each so we get equal everything, which helps us swag a lot.
When you get them mobility boots yo, you move faster than a jet -- that's some swag. You can roam, get to your lane faster, get to fights faster. Terrific item to place on your feet.
Then we got that Wriggy's Swagstern. You not only get SUSTAIN, DAMAGE, AND ARMOR (to counter attacks!), but a free WARD. And it's cheap!
Conserving your bling. Getting quality items for a low price. That's how you swag on.
Spirit visage is awesome. You heal more from your Swaggy latern, you get MR (WHICH HELPS A LOT TO GO AGAINST DAMAGE OF AP PEOPLE), AND CDR -- MAX CDR is what you need, it lets you spam your PAIN wall more and your BUBBLES more and your ULTIMATEEEEEEEEEEEE.
The more CDR THE BETTER.
Which is why we get Swagstor's Gold Tooth.
This item is EXTREMELY underrated. OK, so the attack speed you won't use much (however Karthus really does have good attacks especially with Swaggy's Lantern), BUT WHO CARES. You get only FIVE AP less than a Void Staff, you also get a BAJILLION MANA REGEN, AND YOU GET CDR!
THAT CDR HELPS SO MUCH! NOW YOU HAVE MAX CDR AND CAN SWAG THAT MUCH MORE!
OK same thing with gunblade! You get REALLY NICE AP, and SPELL VAMP SO YOU CAN HEAL MORE.
And you can shoot people with it which slows them a LOT and does so much damage it's like DAMN SO MUCH SWAG.
Ok and then to finish it off, we wanna be even faster. I'm talking like Mach5 here. It doesn't matter if you don't use some of the stats, the most important thing from Swagston's Lap Dancer is the MOVE SPEED. You move so fast no one gonna touch yo jimmies.
And that, my friends, is how to swag.
