My usual start is flask/pots thanks to the sustain and early ward you get, with this you should be able to stay to at least till you got your Brutalizer and one or two wards. I would start with boots and 3 health pots if IÂ´m up against a heavy skillshot reliant champion like Brand or Cassiopiea, it will be easy to dodge them thanks to your already high base movement speed plus boots of speed. Start with long sword and two health pots if you are sure you will get first blood, it also builds into one of your core items (The Brutalizer).
If you were not to aggressive you and died or were forced out of lane you should have your Brutalizer and if you started with Crystalline flask also boots, if you want you can also buy crystalline flask for extra sustain. But if you were forced out of lane earlier then
Now if everything is normal and the laning phase continue then
If you can afford it i highly advise to get B.F Sword before Vampiric Scepter because you get so much extra damage, but if you are desperately in need of life steal or not donÂ´t got enough gold then get Vampiric Scepter.
If you have a very hard time i would advise you to play safe and buy an early Ruby Crystal which you then build into Black Cleaver.
There are 3 options.
This is my main choice of boots, with these together with your ult your ganking presence is extreme. They also let you chase an opponent because not many fleeing opponents damage you on the way from you so your extra movement speed should let you catch them.
I would take these against heavy AP and CC teams, they are cost effective but abit nerfed MR in S3 but still very good.
These are a good option against fed AD carries and also very good against AD bruisers, they also gives you armor so you are more prepared for AD jungler ganks.
This is a good time to finish your Black Cleaver,
Now you got enough damage and should build something defensive, your two options are:
This is my favorite of the two, you get alot of HP but also some damage, and the permaslow is no small plus. With this you will be able to stick to the enemy carry and survive.
This is your alternative to
, it gives you very nice kiting ability and also it got some nice defenses. Take this if you need to kite.
Take this if you are against a fed/high burst AP and need the extra MR and shield to survive. This is my main option.
Take this if you are up against a heavy CC team, together with
they will have a hard time CCing you.
For me this is a no-brainer, why you may ask? ThatÂ´s because late game with full build with you need that extra life to be able to win teamfights but also to be able to assasinate someone and then rivei under ocver of youÂ´re teammates.
DonÂ´t forget to buy
