Intro
This is version 2.0 of the old ninja style guide, so i'll keep it nice and short
the old guide can be find here http://www.leagueoflegends.com/board...ad.php?t=19247

In short, this is a AP eve guide. For jungle AD eve plz look elsewhere.
I simply enjoy the fact that she is almost untouchable in stealth with few exceptions(shen dash, tf ult, galio ult etc)
Many old eve players like myself recognize her weakness: slow farming, squishy melee, oracles, etc
So since we can't change her weakness, I figure we max her strength.

Lane eve has its perks. if jungle eve puts all enemy on edge and play defensive, lane eve allow other lanes to be relaxed, enable aggressive play and over extend. thus more chance for you to gank.
ppl's mind relax with recurrence, constant "eve mia/ re" puts them in a false sense of numbness, so they are not as alert when the next eve mia comes, which could lead to their doom.

Items:

* Regrowth Pendant- last hitting means getting harrassed, ppl love harrass eve, regen is needed.
you can try doran shield, and realize regen is not enough to recover from damage.
* Boots of Mobility - fastest to move around and gank
* Sheen - Great boost to your damage, constant gank once you get this.
* Rylai's Scepter- Belt first!!!!! This will help you survive in mid-game, hp+ap+slow, perfect killing tool
* Lich Bane - This synergy very well with Ravage, the AP from Rylai turns it into another nuke
* Rabadon's Deathcap - what can i say, 155 ap + 30 % boost, you break 600 ap with this.
* Banshee's Veil - For stun nukers like Ryze and others, should be ending by now or just add more survival

Deathfire Grasp is a great item when opponent team got tanks with alot of hp, it's a must have. Just remember to activate it when ganking.

Way of the Ninja:
Several things you need to know to play a ninja evelynn:

Scouting is one of her most important functions, you are the eye for the team. Many eve forget this. Constantly checking grass or enemy jungle or neutrals(dragon/nashor/golem) is important to arrange or avoid ganks.

Patience is the key to be a true ninja in the game and a well played Evelynn will strike fear into the heart of enemy. The best timing or position for gank will not present itself right away. study their pattern or use a bait(teammate) to draw target into ur arms. I once waited 3 waves while leeching exp before the tower hugger step out of turret range, killed him 3 steps from the line the second he comes out.

Distance is measuring where tower can hit you and where its out of reach.
Tower range Increased, so adjust to new limit.

Some heroes will hit creeps near their tower with half hp thinking its safe, but if there is a small space between max tower range and their position. You can kill them while taking 1-2 tower hits.

When a hero is running back with low hp, you can walk between the two towers in curve line while stealth. it takes practice but you can cut him off in middle of the road. image below.

Persistence is to exploit their weakness. If there is a squishy hero, constantly gank her. Result is they buy wards and oracle and behind on items. Also don't retreat right away after initiate, stealth and go back even with little hp, avoid aoe and maybe you can burst someone down after the fight's over.

Sacrifice is in team fights, your job is not to initiate but to shutdown their dps carry, more than often you die after killing carry, but ur team will win.

---------------------------Counter Oracle of Elixir-----------------------------
Highest number of Oracles played against in a single game so far = [[[19]]] - Result: Win
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
For all stealth characters, the worst thing is when enemy carry an Oracle and group together.
Eve is an deadly assassin, so if shes spotted early, she'll be the first target to die.

The keys to counter Oracle of Elixir are in four parts:

Tall Grass: they can't see you in it, so it's perfect place to ambush the Elixir carrier.
Speed, speed, speed: Boots of Mobility + Ult + Lich Bane will give you incredible speed, go in stealth mode from grass and stun/nuke the carrier down before they react!
Teammates: most common and easy way is just ask teammates to focus carrier first.
Timing!!!: go in group fights seconds after initiation, stun nuke the carry and flash out!, this will draw their attention to you and allow teammates to attack as they chase you, but you will have ult to dash out to safety.

Vision wards:
Always, strictly always be on look out for wards, know exactly where they place them and know how far vision ward can see. remember down to seconds when they put it down, it last 3 min now. test it out with creep wave by standing in their way and check how far they'll attack and ignore you. (when nidalee on ur team, she can clear the ward if u know where it is )

Game Play:
Early: go bot, last hit, constantly hide in grass. as soon as you get 800g, port back.
buy boots and sap crystal, now you have speed and mana. gank time!

Mid: Hunting season
Annie, Ryze, Karth, Morg, Twist Fate, Ashe, Fstick, Veigar, Katarina, Kassadin, Teemo, Ezreal, Akali, Corki, Heim, Janna, Soraka, Kayle, Kennen, Kog, Lux, malz, yi, MF, nid, shaco, sivir, sona, tris, twitch, zil .... menu for buffet, enough said.

complete sheen asap, then complete boots of mob, and belt then rylai.
remember wait until they overextend, even by just 1 step, u stun and kill.
You are the initiator in lane and jungle ganking, time it well so your teammates can get in on the fight.

Late: unless they spend thousands of gold on oracles and shut u down all game, you should have plenty kills and assists,
big 3 is boots of mob, rylai, lich bane. consider blue elix if got money, ur Q will stun 2 targets for 2 sec, so use it well.

Conclusion:
A ninja Eve is more about mind play than anything, because her combo is just stealth -> ravage -> hit -> spike -> hit -> chase.
But when, where and who is what differ good Eve from others.
Awareness is everything, always be on the hunt.
Lastly, remember this, Stealth = God Mode, even when 4 them protecting a champ with 50 hp in a group, you can still kill him, flash out->ult stealth and survive.

*PS Jungle/ DPS can be equally powerful although involve different play style.
I respect dps eves and do not discriminate against any play style or builds, (except sunfire =.='')

Nice AP guide. I have never tried rushing Ryali's but it sounds good for ganking.
