No thread about this?

So well, how would you play him, how would you build him, how would you skill his skills?

I got no idea atm, he could be built as an assasin and a tanky dps. I have seen items like Trinity Force, Randuin's Omen, The Bloodthirster and Maw of Malmortius from guardsman bob.

Also, first approved guides on solomid:
1
2

I would also say he is rather hard to itemize, you can either go for AS to increase the amount of stacks and this way faster a bigger ult, or you could go for AD and increase your overall dmg, but you don't get fast stacks.

Since your passive can cause the ult to deal 20/40/60/80/100% more damage, in some ways tankyness enables increased damage exposure in teamfights.

I think a sturdy bruiser type build is ideal.

I bought an Executioner's Calling...

...because, you know, synergy with the champ and all.

edit: Decided to put something serious here :P

I'd start Boots of Speed + 4 pots, which let me get in range for Q for harass, then build into Ninja Tabi or Mercury's Treads.

Then go into a Wriggle's Lantern for some sustain, and rush Trinity Force, Phage > Sheen > Zeal because it synergizes well with his burst. I'd go Sheen first if I'm stomping my lane.

Then Wit's End because it's a cheap Mr item, with attack speed to proc my slow and passive.

Then situational defensive items like Randuin's Omen, Maw of Malmortius, some (0-2) The Bloodthirsters, Frozen Heart, more attack speed through something, etc.

edit again: Some Doran's Blades and Vampiric Scepter is a nice replacement for Wriggles too.

I think you're going to need 6 of them for tons of damage.

I think that Doran's Blades are generally superior to Wriggle's Lantern atm. Most tops get them instead of Wriggle's Lantern anyway. As I have seen from people playing Jax, after they bought 2 Doran's Blades they went for Phage-> Zeal-> Trinity Force first. This could also be possible for Darius ( Zeal i think is superior over Sheen at this point because of the synergy with Phage and the passive).

Boots of Speed + 4 Health Potion's is nobrainer today.

Yeah, forgot what I went for lifesteal + health :P

I actually don't think I got Wriggle's Lantern at all, I just said it because w/e Lifesteal + resists + early game item.

I generally start Boots + 3 pots (4 if I can get it) go into double or triple Doran's, get a Hexdrinker or Chain Vest depending on my opponents damage then go for a The Bloodthirster. Build situationally from here, but usually it goes: Upgrade to Maw of Malmortius, Guardian Angel, and get a Frozen Mallet.

Haven't really gotten to play him too often, but that's what I've been using and it's been working pretty well.

Oh, and upgrade boots to whatever. Forgot to add that.

Core:

The Bloodthirster
Maw of Malmortius
Guardian Angel

Basically, I like playing him like Riven or Renekton early on for ridiculous damage and then transitioning into a tankier build late game.

If I helped you, click that +rep!

Boots of Speed + 3 pot
Phage
sandals of situation (still think this needs to be an actual wiki entry)
Hexdrinker
Maw of Malmortius because maw packs some extremely strong offense.
Sheen for w spam
Trinity Force
Phage
Frozen Mallet
Atma's Impaler
Force of Nature


if i'm facing a ******** sustain lane i'll build some sustain myself, starting with philosopher's stone and a Doran's Blade or 2.
