IntroductionSinged is a lean mean pubstomping machine if you've never seen him before. But if he's running at you, you're probably thinking... "OH S*** THIS MOTHERF***ER WANTS MY ****." He is a farmer who can almost get away from everything with the right summoner spells and items/skill aoe/timing/etc. Since he has huge farming potential, he can be a great threat early to late mid game, since he can farm half the map in literally 1-2 minutes and totally screw over your composition. His ult +ghost will make your team cry in the early to midlate lvl 6-14 team fight for dragon because of his DPS output early on. You'd have to have a mind of a mad man to play Singed to the fullest and the farm to back it up. But the greatest part about singed his is laugh, which is why I play him. Because playing champions that are fun, is usually the best champion to play for you, so if you think singed is boring as shit then this guide isn't for you.
It depends on user preference in the end, there is no real main singed build it's just how I like to do it.
The Marks are just there to take space. The Seals are good for procing dodge to run faster. The Glyphs are to take space and to survive longer. The quints are self explanatory
Runes vary depending on user preference and patch changes.
I get TP for lane control to heal to full and get back in it fast or for ward ganks cause as a player i farm alot so if im on the other side of the map farming i can tp to a ward and help my team. Ghost+ult is self explainitory. Ghost is the best thing since ice cream
Passive: Empowered Bulwark
Increases Singed's health by .25 for each mana point he has.
This got nerfed since beta, but this is pretty much the reason why you get mana i.e. catalyst.
Q: Poison Trail
Toggle: Singed lays a poisonous trail which deals 22 / 34 / 46 / 58 / 70 (+30% of ability power) magic damage per second.
Cost 13 mana per second
Your main dps source. Unless they have like a lot of MR, people will hate running into your trail, or will hate you for being able to farm everything so quickly with this constant dps aoe dot.
W: Mega Adhesive
Singed throws a vial of mega adhesive on the ground causing all enemies who touch it to be slowed by 35 / 45 / 55 / 65 / 75% for 5 seconds.
Cooldown 14 seconds
Cost 80 / 90 / 100 / 110 / 120 mana
Game changing AOE Slow when all 5 of your enemies are slowed to obivion while your team takes advantage of this to each catch them/run away or just use it for a chance to toss someone to their death. (Picking off etc.)
Singed flings an enemy over his shoulder, dealing 100 / 150 / 200 / 250 / 300 (+100% of ability power) magic damage and slowing the enemy when they land.
Cooldown 11.5 seconds
Cost 100 / 110 / 120 / 130 / 140 mana
Great for ganking, picking off people, game changer when you land a good toss or toss someone that just flashed back over to waste their flash for nothing.
R: Insanity Potion
Singed drinks a potent brew of chemicals, granting him 35 / 50 / 65 enhanced damage, attack speed %, ability power, armor, movement speed, and regeneration per 5 for 25 seconds.
Cooldown 120 seconds
Cost 150 mana
You can pretty much spam this skill, or save it for fights. Adding it with ghost makes you really hard to run away from or to catch. I often hit this + Q + Ghost in team fights and what's so great about it is that if people target you, your team kills them. If people target your team, you kill them.
Max Q get lvl 1 W/E Max R
W/E is user preference, no real order.
Get E at lvl 1
You should start off with a Catalyst as a core item for leveling up and staying out as long as possible to gain exp and farm.
Keeping Catalyst until around lvl 16-17 is important for leveling and level baiting which isn't as strong anymore but still can create chances.
Rylai's is a Must
Getting Merc threads or Tabi depends on who you are facing, and so is the rest of your items.
Turning catalyst into Banshee's or Rod depending on enemy magic dmg.
If you see no enemy % items or spells for HP then go ahead and build a rod of ages.
If you see a hero that attacks fast and does a shit load of dmg get frozen heart.
Force of Nature is optional because ignite can really take a huge blow to your survivability.
Sunfire Cape is good
If you're laning vs Pirate and can't get any farm I suggest 1-3 heart of gold, and ignore any AP items and go sunfire/randuins as if you were malphite.
NotesOther things you should note as Singed.
You can beat kass or morg in solo lane easy.
You shouldn't pick singed if you see malzahar/anivia/kennen if you're solo lane.
You can farm/push a lot, you are a power hero early to late mid but your late game isn't as great unless you're outfarming everyone else.
You are a great presence and add pressure to the other team so know when to push or to help your team in fights. Hence the teleport ghost.
You are a really good lane partner for blitz or alistar, since you can push back into tower easy.
You aren't immortal early game, try not to get the courage from last game to your next one, a lot of players make this mistake.
Singed NEEDS farm.
Base your item build depending on your enemies.
Final CommentsRealize that singed is more basic than you think, and all you really need to do is press Q and farm. Or press R and get W or E off in fights while having Q on, and make sure you auto attack when your trail is on everyone you want it to be so you can add dps.
Prioritize targets with your toss, don't save an enemy by tossing them away.
