I just do like that :
E first (for harass mainly) after that i try to max R>W>Q>E.
W because its your main source of escape , lvl it make your more difficult to gank. Q for the dommage and last E for pushing lane.
if you max E to quickly in lane you wwill push too much.
the good point with the guinsoo is that you get some extra AD that nashor thoot didn t have, you can get stack very easily with jax. But the CDR is a really good point to nashor tooth.
Gunblade is a little more expensive and the attack speed on the BORK make you ult passive procs much more , you have more lifesteal and the speel vamp is compensate (can i say compensate in this languages ? xD ) by the % life steal. i wanna see a comparison of both with math :p maybe if i have the time i will do it.
It depend on items, i take guinsoo , so much more atk speed so the passive of bork proc much more, this two core items synergises well. on trinity you have atk speed too. Win-Win ? The AD scale well in late , no ?
Yea i take the fist only if the ennemy team have tons of AD or i take something like thormail with my randuins and ask my team to take a frozen heart.
ryze just explode keyboard like :
God ! Love smart cast !
edit : ho yea , when i play darius i roll my head on te keyboard that is pretty damagable xD
I usualy start with boots and 3 pots, start farming .
maybe a should buy a doran's blade ?
I up the boots in zerk or mercury. After that i take a sheen for the passive and the mana. I take the blade of the ruined king. I take the guisoo rageblade (more attack speed, ATK and live steal when you are mid life) After that i m going to randuin omen, i finish my trinity. For the last item , guardian angel or maybe hextech gunblade but its just sooo expensive.
For runes i go : MS quint, AD red for farm , armor blue and magic resist blue.
Maybe that wil sounds stupid but , instead of randuins or before it , why do not get spirit visage ?
Just a question : did the CDR reduction reduce the malus mana cost on ult ?
Ho stop with safe pick ! If you do a normal game i think you can play what you want ( ok maybe not sona AD but ...) if you can t play exotic pick in normal where can you play them ? VS bots ? 20 minute ? You cannot see the true power and weakness of a champ in 20 minute you need a 30-40 minute game :/
Quote : I also believe Nashor's Tooth and Muramana to be incredibly strong on Seige'Moar.
AP kog is not On-hit kog , you do t really need AS because you AA and the % damage on AA is not you main source of damage. You are using much more your Ult / Glue .if you go to AA you must be really near your ennemy compare to the position where you can ult spam.
Ho yea Kog AP is one of my main mid with Swain.
When you think Kag AP , think : The most amazing poke ever ! But he is very effective late game (lvl 16) and he need farm so he need the mid (yea)
Start with boots and pots, at your first back (push before) take a tears of the god and start charge with some few spell at the fountain. Just passive farm until you have you ult. After use it to poke your opponement, yea you are here ! People think the ulti is just 0.3 ratio but in reality he is 0.675 on champion ... every 2 - 1 seconds ! With 2500 range ? AOE ? Yea but it is easy to dodge :/
The ratio is good but the bases damage is good too so both magic pen and AP are usefull , AP more usefull to push , depend on ennemies. When you think poke , think liandry. Liandry ? M pen ! Good, core just after tear and sorcerer boots or needlesly large rods if you need to push. After that , take a rylai that will help you to land ult. Take a rabadon.Ok Now , finish you archangel staff. Hum ? The matches is over ? No ? You do not need surviving hability if someone reach you , you are dead with warmog or without warmog ... you can take a void staff.
To push use you "glue" and ult the mage lane. if you have enough AP they will die and you push really fast.Use glue, living artillery and ult to harass.
The power of Kog'Maw is that he can mid life carry and hurt really hard other ennemies , you have to take every blue after the second golem because you are so mana hungry , don t shoot more than 3-4 ult when your team didn t engage. The fact that you hurt ennemies , they will wait to engage so you can poke them more , this is the real power of Kog. And its a tower/ inhibitor/ baron/dragon you take.
Kog AP is very weak again gap closer , assasin will kill him easy. In your team do not forget to have some CC and it will be fie for you in team figth. You counter people like Cho gath mid,with tons of HP or champion with weak range as annie. poke her to death !
I think with a nidalee top/support (other poke champion) and a jayce ADC that will be the most awfull poke team in the world xD ennemi team must engage quickly. and maybe too quickly so they will do error. Only heal and nashor negate poke .
Ok its a lot of information but i love so much AP kog !
