How it works

  1. You are going Guinsoo's Rageblade, building Attack Speed and On-Hit items.
  2. Thanks to Guinsoo's Rageblade, your On Hit effects are gonna trigger two times every third Attack.
  3. You are gonna play Carry for your team.

How to play

  1. Good first items are BoTRK, Titanic Hydra or Kraken Slayer.
  2. Remember to use Titanic Hydra active! It deals additional damage and also resets auto attack timer!
  3. Wit's End has really weird scaling, it starts being good around level 11. Before 11, it has really low On-Hit damage.
  4. Usually Guinsoo's Rageblade is not good first rush. Get it as #2 or #3 item.

Tips and Tricks

General
  1. Always keep auto attacking - this gives you great sustain, especially early on.
  2. Always count your Q attacks. You can attack minions twice, then E (combined with Flash) and knock unsuspecting enemies up!
  3. Combo #1: You can cast W and Flash. It works forward/backward and sideways. This lets you get some cool kills.
  4. Combo #2: You can cast W, Flash then use E to reach. That's a super cool combo that lets you catch people off guard and engage from miles away.
  5. Combo #3: You can cast R, then Flash. This way you do some surprise damage, or even throw enemies into your team if used properly (keep track of who is Challenged!)
Riot
  1. Xin Zhao is a great initiator to combat. Lead the front to start a fight and use your ultimate to do the most damage possible.
  2. Try to position yourself so your ultimate's knockback is most effective.
