Skills

Umbra Blades
Passive: Umbra Blades Every 10 seconds, Nocturne's next attack strikes surrounding enemies for 120% of his physical damage and heals himself for 10 / 18 / 26 per target hit. Nocturne's autoattacks reduce this cooldown by 1 second.

Explanation: Bonus damage for basic attack + makes makes it aoe and gives bonus life steal every few seconds. Great combo with hydra for that op wave clear.
Duskbringer
Q: Duskbringer Active: Nocturne sends a shadow blade in a line that deals physical damage to all enemies it passes through, leaves a Dusk Trail on its path, and causes champions who are hit to also leave a Dusk Trail when they move for 5 seconds. While on the trail, Nocturne ignores unit collision and has increased movement speed and attack damage.
Cooldown: 10 seconds
Range: 1200

Cost: 60/65/70/75/80 mana
Physical Damage: 60/105/150/195/240 (+0.75 per bonus attack damage)
Movement Speed Bonus: 15/20/25/30/35 %
Attack Damage Bonus: 15/25/35/45/55

Explanation: Throws out a trail of darkness that follows the enemy on hit. The trail gives you movement speed and bonus damage. Great dueling and chasing spell. On the early game you should try to combo this one with your fear because you can bash on the enemy very hard with the bonus ad.
Shroud of Darkness
W: Shroud of Darkness Passive: Nocturne empowers his blades, permanently gaining attack speed.
Active: Nocturne creates a magical shield for 1.5 seconds which can block the next enemy spell that hits him. If an ability is blocked by the shield, his passive attack speed is doubled for 5 seconds.

Attack Speed Bonus: 20/25/30/35/40 %
Cooldown: 20/18/16/14/12 seconds

Explanation: If you block an enemy spell with it the damage is ignored and you gain double attack speed for 5 sec. Very handy in duel because the enemy cant cc you and you gain att speed.
Unspeakable Horror
E: Unspeakable Horror Active: Nocturne plants a nightmare into his targets mind, dealing magic damage over 2 seconds and placing a leash on the target for the duration. If Nocturne stays within leash range of the target for the full duration, the target becomes feared.

Fear Duration: 1/1.25/1.5/1.75/2 seconds

Explanation: + Good zoning tool, deals damage while channeling. - Channel can be broken, cd is quite long, has a small range so its easy to flash/dash out.
Paranoia
R: Paranoia Active: Nocturne reduces the sight radius of all enemy champions and removes their ally vision for 4 seconds; this includes champions, minions, wards, towers, and clairvoyance.While Paranoia is active, Nocturne can launch himself at a visible enemy champion, dealing physical damage.

Explanation:

Item Builds

Starting items: for getting close to harras/farm.
after first Back: armor shreding, health regaining from lifesteal.
core: nice aore basics + armor shred and lifesteal
Then: sustain/resists/+1 life/slow from omen.
final items:

Early game

Try to farm as much as possible. If harrased, trade with and basics. If a fight brakes out with oponent you should be able to destroy him with q and basics cuz it gives you bonus ad so you'd be fighting with 100~ level 1. After a couple of minutes of good farming you'll be able to buy brutalizer then you WILL shred their armor and destroy them. A little lifesteal and with your passive youll have you health back in no time.

Mid Game

Go gank mid or bot with if possible. Continue farming... If you are doing better in lane you can put up a ward and go fight with q/e, use w to deny cc. If you are doing normal in lane ask for ganks to dominate it. then you will be able to buy youre main items. (in If you're willing to risk you can take enemy blue, during lane phase.)

Late Game

If you have you main items / You should be able to just to a carry and deny much dmg whichi is perfect, but you have yo know when to use it. Most of the time you'll be just going 1v5 and thats just throwing the game. you have to ping and talk with your team to let them know and get to position.

Team Fights

to carry and not let him do dmg. to prevent stuns. to increase your teams dmg and to do little dmg to enemys, its also a perfect spell for chasing. fear an ap or ad carry to prevent dmg ! main tactic is to wait for enemy team mistakes (missposition, solo walking, blind drake/baron) if that happens ping like crazy and go in when your team is no far behind you.

Jungling

Jungling with noc is easy, you go through camps go gank. Use to get close, use this to prevent stuns, slows, etc. and use it so your teammate can catch up or destroy the enemy. The real gank begin when you get then you can swoop in and disable your target with a clever use of q/w/e combo.
Build is the same just buy wrigles and sell it so you could buy last item.
