For some reason I found myself studying Corkis skills and scaling yesterday. Since I haven't really played him since his blind went away (he'd be a godlike solo top with it since it counters most melee solo tops).

I was fascinated that so many of his skills scales with AP. This I had completely forgotten. To be purely technical none of his skills scale well with neither ap nor ad, but then again you have that ultimate on short cd so it can hurt more often than any other ranged ulti in the game.

I know that many people build sheen into triforce on him and I don't disagree. His passive scales insanely well with the crits and ultimate with both ad and ap, the mana is needed. I don't think anyone can utilise triforce better than Corki tbh. Might be wrong though.

But apart from that, what do you build on him? His passive scales insanely well with pure ad and crit, his gatling the same. But mana is needed and if a pokier comp both mana and cdr is needed. And both q, w and ultimate scales with ap. Tried building HTGB and maybe Guinsoos? Maybe even go Boots, triforce, IE, HTGB, Guinsoos and Nashors?

Thoughts?

AD and triforce. Corki's ratios are so amazingly ****ty that it's ******ed to build AP on him (not to mention his escape is one of his "AP-scaling damage skills" and his E reduces armor).
Thanks to Nyoike for the sig!

I was honestly thinking the same. But then I thought that well both if building triforce plus pure ad you will not be able to utilise his ultimate well. And for those effective triforce procs you want that Ultimate ready as often as possible.

One more thing, if you want to be able to use ultimate as much as possible you can fire one every 10th second. Or in a fight every 2nd second for max aa damage which means 8 hits (2 big ones) until you run out and also 8 sheen procs. What I am trying to say is that you can utilise his ultimate at least 10 times in the time it takes for most others to use theirs once. So 10x0.3 ap and 10x0.2 ad. I see a use for ap on him. Going pure ad only really utilities his E and AA.

3 AP scaling skills.
1 is your escape, 1 is really short range, 1 is your ult.
All have pretty bad AP scaling.

Only AP you should be building is the Sheen/TriForce. Maybe a gunblade if you're doing amazing for the heals on your ult.


Thank you to jhoijhoi for the sig, and all the dividers in the guide.

If you are really hellbent on going Hybrid, go with Triforce, Hextech, and whatever else.
I wouldn't recommend him as anything BUT AD. His ratios (as said) are complete *****, his E increases damage done by reducing armor, and that range on his ult is too good for to waste it on AP.
