How to play

  1. You build Lethality and wait for a moment to strike enemy squishes.
  2. Snowball / Mark is a crucial cooldown for playing this build. Do not waste it or even wait to hit the enemy at point-blank range to ensure hit (so you follow them, if they Flash).
  3. If an enemy team is full of tanks or bruisers, rush Serylda's Grudge or even Lord Dominik's Regards early (sometimes even #2). Black Cleaver is also an alternative. The key is to adapt to the enemy team.

Tips and Tricks

General
  1. Q + Flash combos: You can use Flash during any time of Q animations. You can even combine that with Umbral Dash (E). You can Flash and E in any direction, making very spectacular and flashy plays.
  2. You can use Umbral Dash (E) for short dash, this way animation lasts shorter, and you can get crucial milliseconds to auto attack faster (can be deciding a factor in 1v1).
  3. You can reset your auto attack timer with Umbral Dash (E). It might be crucial in duels, or when pushing enemy turrets.
Riot
  1. Use Umbral Dash while casting The Darkin Blade to increase your chances of hitting the enemy.
  2. Crowd Control abilities like Infernal Chains or your allies' immobilizing effects will help you set up The Darkin Blade.
  3. Cast World Ender when you are sure you can force a fight.
