Saw there is no thread about her yet, so what does people think?

I guess everyone has seen both the jungle version and the mid version. Heard some are building her like a normal brusier and kick ***. My self I have tried once by going hextech revolver, roa and rageblade. Aiming on gunblade, hourglass and abyssal. Though mid and bot lane feed to much, so the game didn't got close. On the other hand my try seems like a very bad idea anyway, maybe gunblade could be nice, jax style anyone? Though she would need more defense.

Anyway but does people think?

I think shes fun, but it does irritate me that her ultimate only gets 1 refresh. I typically go a fizz route on her with a RoA and a D cap. Her ratios are very high so I want to make the most of them. Her Q-R-E is a good disrupt but you have to be tanky enough to do it without dieing. Her passive is really strong so I feel Ap/AS may be viable on her.

Lich Bane could be good on her, especially if you get her passive proc off at the same time.
Guinsoo's is only really good if you're going herp derp AS to abuse her passive imo. it does however let you knock down towers like a baws.
WotA and Gunblade might be required if you're jungling with her.
Only her R is single target, so Rylai's is a bit meh.


Essentially play her like an AP-based Darius :3

Imo, sheen is a must, whether it builds into triforce or lich. I've seen some AD Dianas, and they are ok. Rylais is more for some tankyness, dunno if RoA would work on her.
Maybe an Unholy Grail for continued R'ing?

If you're just getting Rylai's for the health, might as well just get a RoA and get mana as well...
At the moment I'm veering towards
RoA
Rylai's
Lich Bane
DCap
Boots - Maybe even Berz Greaves for passive procs.
Finish with Guardian Angel or Banshee's Veil or the like

Not sure how I'd build her yet, she's a versatile champion. Heavily AP, but I could see top lane AD bruiser or jungler...As well I'm pretty sure her ultimate get's as many refreshes as you want, as long as you Qd your target previously to ulting them...Ofc I only played one PBE custom game with her so I could be mistaken.

Well I usually do this: boots and pots start > Heart of Gold > boots 2 (sorc of merc treads) > Lich Bane > rylai's.... then the game ends

runes: Mpen reds, ap quints, armor seals, mr/lvl blues

Masteries: 9-21

QR combo means that Lich Bane is a must if you're going AP
Sheen/Triforce I think are overrated anyway... :P Although why you'd want to play her as an AD/Bruiser makes no sense to me when her AP ratios are so high 0_o
Although I reckon her ratios will get nerfed on release.
Nashor's Tooth might also be useful on her. Ish.

I mean, you could go for a Bruiser AP build of 2x RoA, Rylai's, Lich, DCap, GA to finish. Gives you a silly amount of HP and AP, use your runes to get resistances early game.

Problem I have is that she can struggle to close the distance with no ultimate up
She also has high mana costs and is cooldown dependant. She also scales well off attack speed.

So Lich Bane and Rylais are the only for certs I have so far
Nashors Tooth does work, and so does Beserkers funnily enough

I think maybe DFG, Rylais, Lich Bane, Unholy Grail, Deathcap/Void Staff/Gunblade/Nashors
Its annoying cause I really like Gunblade on her but struggle to find where to put it unless I replace DFG with it

I find she needs Grail for mana and CDR, Rylais for slowing Qs, Lich Bane is obvious, so is Deathcap
Its just the choice between DFG, Void, Gunblade or Nashors
