How do i build elise top lane(struggling with late game items)

#1tweakerlimePosted 11/30/2012 9:05:09 AM
I've been having success with her top lane. I have been building sorc boots, haunting guise, and abyssal pretty much every match, but afyer them 3 items i have been winging it. For an armor item, should i go sunfire, randuins,FH, or Zhonyas?

Whats a good full build on her?

Sorcs
Guise
Abyssal
GA
FH
Athene's

Last item is entirely situational. I just picked Athenes for the AP and CDR

Frozen Heart is really good for the CDR. If your team is feeding you blue for some reason, you can probably go with a Randuin's instead, but generally FH is a great armor option.

Rylai's is an option to help sticking onto people late game for the rest of your team to collapse on them too.

Idk...these builds leave her with little presence.

I like more dmg and have been botspot, dorans, rushing rylais, defensive boots vs my lane, then from there, work your way to some of the following: frozen heart, hourglass, abyssal, haunting guise, banshee's and maybe a rod of ages if you are fed early

these all depend on team comps and lane matchups. she needs good defenses but get a bit of ap on her to hit harder and make them regret ignoring you

What do you mean by "very little presence"?

The spell-pen build allows her to easily kill enemies until they have over 120 MR and 2k HP. She doesn't have amazing ratios so building her more AP-oriented isn't as strong as spell pen. Like lanewick

In my opinion, the best way to play her is as an assassin. If you want to play her as a tanky-mage, I guess it can work arlright with: RoA, Rylai, Abyssal, Zhonyas, Dcap, Mercs. But in that case why not just pick swain and do it better?
