Build #1

Sap Crystal +2 pots
Sheen
Merc Treads
Black Cleaver
Tri Force
Any Health item


Build #2

Saph Crystal + 2pots
Catalyst
Merc Treads
Last Whisper
Infinity Edge
Banshee Veil


From doing some testing...it seems like I hit harder with Build 1 and am able to penetrate armor a lot faster? Build 2 is definitely very good though and provides survivability with good damage. I guess it depends on the opponent also, which I change a few areas up. Just wondering some opinions and any other possible alternatives.

Build 2, but get Infinity (starting with BF) before Last Whisper .

You need the raw damage of Infinity for Gatling before you need the speed or penetration of Last Whisper.

But, get a Sword of the Occult before Infinity if you are confident about being able to keep 10+ stacks on it.


Saph Crystal + 2pots
Catalyst
Merc Treads
Sword of the Occult (optional, but recommended)
Infinity Edge
Last Whisper
Banshee Veil

Stark's Fervor
Black cleaver
Last whisper
Youmuu's ghostblade

First of all, don't combine last whisper and Black cleaver. They have ANTI synergy, as armor reduction is applied first.
I think the first one is better, although I usually go:
meki->chalice
phage
boots
cleaver
--->mallet
Bloodthirster
guardian angel



and somewhere on the way boots are made into mercs

Let's say you have an enemy that has 100 armor.

If you have just a last whisper, it reduces the armor by 40.

Let's say you have BC and LW.

BC reduces the armor by 60, to 40.

LW reduces that 40 by 40%, making it 24. Having it effectively reduced by 16.

I think you realize that those two don't work very well together, and since corki has a lot of armor reduce, Last Whisper is not really good on him, since he also doesn't really profit from the attackspeed. You should only get it if you're up against a team of armor stackers.

pretty decent build, tried it out
also i love leviathan, because corki is an aoe machine, he gets tone of assists and kills, thus hes getting alot of stacks

The build I used was;

Dorians sword (worse then shield I know but it seems to work better for early kills) + heal pot
If doing well rush BF otherwise grab Longsword
Boots of Choice (50% of the time I get boots 3 because I get no slow so I need the extra speed otherwise treds)
Black Cleaver
Infinity Edge
Bloodthirster
Survivability item if needed.

QFT. Though, note that while yes, the BC + LW results in less armor than BC alone, yer kinda wasting gold. If instead you had Brutalizer + BC (100-60-15=25), your target has only 1 more armor than BC + LW, but it's 628 gold cheaper. Not to mention, LW adds 40% attack speed and 20 damage, while the Brutalizer gives you 25 damage and 10% cooldown reduction. On top of that, the Brutalizer can be upgraded to the Ghostblade, which further boosts it's benefits, gaining an extra 5 damage, 5 ArPen, 5% CDR, 15% crit, and a movespeed active for 950 gold.

Now, if for some reason the entire enemy team is stacking armor (170+ armor), then a Whisper might be a really good choice, despite the anti-synergy with Gatling/Cleaver.
