As fink said in his guide as well, hop out of the lane and wipe the wraith camps when you have the chance. This will give you a little extra harass-free farm.
Yeah, I watched the guide. The problem is, even with the magic resist, LeBlanc is hitting for half my life whenever I get in range.

It looks like you blacked out their carry's largest crit to make yours look bigger. Still ****ed impressive.

Using your build my best crit was around 1300. It's been a great guide for me and with these new buffs I'm scared they're gonna have to nerf him...AD scaling on missles is ridiculous, even if it's only going to be ~60 damage/missle late-game.

It will give you a lot of damage later. But I doubt the mana reg will be enough. 7mana/5s is the same and on the Tear (as on the Meki also).

I only have enough mana for my skills, if I have the golem buff and to get that, I need the Wriggle's.
You can get by on Corki without Manamune or Golem if you're very conservative with your skill usage. Only cast your Q if you're harassing/fighting a champion, and save your R for sure hits on your opponent.

Although, if you want to be more spammy with your skills, you can farm up a manamune pretty quickly. Buy the TotG on your first trip back (should be just before you turn 6 and start spamming your Missile Barrage), then upgrade it on the second trip back. That would remove your reliance on golem buff entirely leaving it for your mage teammates or jungler.

Quote:
- I have to fight nearly every game to be in the mid (often a Kat is refusing to go and ruining the lane, because she makes a 2vs1 out of mid)
- I have to battle over the golem with every **** Shaco player I encounter, if someone jungles I can't forget it right away, which delays Corki also hard.
- I hardly get early kills, because of other OP heroes are took mid (like Morde) - at last I don't give them kills
- ganks on the side lanes are also hard, because I have no CC (and my mana isn't enough for a second EQW combo) - besides with Wriggle's and boots I don't make enough damage (Corki is really good, if you finally managed to get 2-3 greater items)

A Missfortune can get far better results with less. :-(
Smart teams will let you have mid over an assassin like Kat because they understand the value of a farmed carry. I suspect if you can raise your ELO you'll find teammates more conscious of team priorities instead of individual priorities.

Again, if you grab a Manamune or just play very conservatively with your skills, you can get by without Golem. Imo it's pretty selfish to expect to be fed golem anytime before lategame as an AD carry.

Early game your priority is farming farming farming with a side of harassment and pushing. If you're laning against morde, hit him with a Q/R combo every time he comes up to siphon your creeps, then just push harder than he can. As long as you don't get pushed out of lane, you're doing your job well.

Imo you shouldn't be leaving to gank side lanes much until later in the game. Only leave your farming lane if you see a fight break out. You're fantastic for turning a fight around and/or cleaning up low hp targets, but not so great for starting a fight.

A Shen can very well have 0 crits in an entire game.

^^This, katarina, sivir, and mord are all champs can deal high, unavoidable damage in lane, which may mean standing back a little further (and maybe last hitting with missle more than AA), and it may mean going back and getting vamp scepter or null magic mantle before you can finish your wriggles/mercs

Also: I love this patch so much... I dont think this was actually that much of a buff, but now people are finally taking corki seriously, meaning that I can use him in soloqueue and dont have to fight over mid/buffs

I can definitely tell a difference in the AD scaling of the missiles, and so can my lane opponents. I've still met the occasional doubter that doesn't think much of Corki, but decent teammates will rally around me so much more readily now it seems.

So now your corki stands up on the table and starts yelling that he is going to penetrate 40% of the women in the bar, but the bar doesnt have any women, just 30 really pissed off dudes that drag him in the alley and beat the **** out of him just as my corki pulls away with his ferrari (starks fervor) that attracted 20 more girls while he was inside.
This made me want to play corki.

tl;dr, don't gattling early, watch your positioning, use if for kills and jungling.

Best metaphor i have ever heard in my life. Easily

corki has high potential. i just have never seen anyone use him to his full potential. on paper, he can completely rape anything that comes his way but he is simply about positioning.
