    ADC Start

    Is the new standard start for ADCs 9 AD marks 2 Lifesteal quints + doran's blade now?

    haven't really followed up with the competitive scene

    I've been doing this since mid s2.

    8 ad marks, 1 crit mark and 3 ls quints + doran's start.

    Not sure if it's standard exactly but most AD players seem to have a page with AD marks and Lifesteal quints at the moment and Khazem tells me it's really good. I can imagine it would be strong, especially in non-sustain lanes and you might be able to skip out buying vamp scepter altogether in more situations. Lifesteal also scales better into lategame than any other rune.

    Doran's Blade start has been standard for ages.

    i think its ad. gonna have a hard time last hitting with arpen

    AD marks if you're doing that. AD = more dmg to minions = more lasthits and sustain.

    I know what you're talking about, and the answer is 'kind of.' I have seen a lot of people go 1 LS quint and 19-0-11 for the 3% LS and spell vamp on Caitlyn and ezreal. Look up bobbyhankhill for some interesting builds for adc.

    I myself just purchased a LS quint for this very reason.

    Ionno I've been watching the Starswar league and everyone seemed to be running lifesteal quints and starting dorans blade so I was curious

    Crit quints? don't think anyone runs that o_o...

    I thought that main start was long sword + 2pots

    For most carries, some benefit more from it than others. Starting Boots + 3 Pots is still viable, so is Doran's Blade (sorta).
    wait whut | March 21, 2013 6:40am
    I start with 9 AD marks, 3 AD quints, 9 armor and 9 MR
    Embracing (353) | March 22, 2013 1:11am
    That's how I used to start
    ShortyHUN (40) | March 21, 2013 11:18am
    What about att speed marks? ADCs benefit a lot from that. And lifesteal won't help anyway till you got some higher AD...
    Embracing (353) | March 22, 2013 1:11am
    ADCs dont benefit a lot from as marks only junglers do lol
    you miss last hits have a weak push and you wont even be able to use the as marks unless the enemies go all in on you
    TheVirginBoar (4) | March 21, 2013 6:52am
    I go 6 ad marks, 3 apen marks, 3 AD quints, 9 armor and 9 mr. I start with long sword and two pots if my support has a good heal and cc like taric or nami. Otherwise i go boots and 3 pots. Hope it helped you :)
