Business Inquiries:

VS Poke Laner

PASSIVE Can write small snippet
Q Maxing Q allows you to output the most amount of damage possible in any scenario. This is because your Q's draw back passive (damage increased with amount of time while pulling arrow) works in synergy with your W's Active, allowing you to do massive damage based on the enemy's MAX health.

W If you are against a melee laner then START 'W'. You'll get 'Q'
at level 2 and max 'Q'

E Starting E is a 100% guaranteed his of Arcane Commit levels 1-5 as long as you land E.

R Snippet

Starting Build

This is going to be your core items that you go every game then depending on enemy team comp there are more items to build below. I always start with Tear of the Goddess and Health Potion Health Potion

Hyper Carry

The ideal full build will include the items above and then these.

VS Tanks

Tip: Build last whisperer BEFORE you finish Collector to melt through heavy armor teams.

Serpent's Fang is a must build into any team that has heavy shielding.

VS Heavy CC

Build Mercury's Treads if you're going into a heavy crowd control comp.

Edge of Night with Youmuu's Ghostblade makes it very safe for you to farm or get close enough to engage with your ultimate without getting picked off.

AP Varus

Max Damage

Feel free to try other variations of these runes, but Sorcery with Arcane Comet maximizes damage output from the start to finish of your games with how much you will poke down the enemy with your Q's.

VS Squishy Teams

This rune build is perfect for matchups like Zed, LeBlanc, Ahri, Lux, and any other champion who are extremely squishy.

Dark Harvest will be able to stack very easily since you always have range advantage and will poke them out of lane.

Cheap Shot always activates when you hit E Hail of Arrows and your Ultimate, Chain of Corruption.

Ultimate Hunter will help you send out more ultimate's to lock them down and 1 shot them. Take Armor or MR depending on matchup and swap Coup de Grace for Legend: Tenacity if they have heavy CC.
