Many of you have been victim to my Ashe so I decided to reveal my secrets to the public so as nobody calls hacker on me anymore LOL

The secret to playing Ashe is playing mind games. "Oh this game is full of mind games for everybody" Yes, but Ashe is likely the most important, seeing her ultimate can across map shot people: you want to make people believe they're doing something good, and when they do... punish them for it. They're NEVER safe while you're on the enemy team.

Summoner spells


Clarity/Teleport without runes or Ghost/Teleport, Heal/Teleport or Exhaust/teleport with runes(it really depends on the situation, i'd say ghost or exhaust is preferred but since ashe is an early killer you might want heal to throw off your opponent. I personally use exhaust)

Runes

Get all mana regen runes, I prefer per level mana regen but you can get fixed if you just want the 9.5 mana regen/5 that's a fixed amount, or you can mix them(they end in clarity for per level and replenishment for fixed). The reason for this is because ashe is supposed to be an extremely aggressive character at the beginning of the game to stop others from farming/levelling, so you'll need the mana to volley spam their butts back to base(or even better, kill them). With a 9.5 mana regen per 5, you should be able to have full mana at all times before level 6 if you only spam volley, which leaves way for a beautiful ultimate kill.

Masteries: Pure offense masteries. Get everything that helps physical damage and penetration.

My main build

Initial items:

Long Sword x1
Health Potion x1

First buy:

The Brutalizer

Ah yes, perhaps my favorite weapon of the game. 25 attack damage, 15 armor penetration, and 10% less cooldowns will make you a killing beast that early in the game. Usually I get the brutalizer around level 5, which means most players have 700 health. Your base attack does 60~, +25 more damage, +15 armor penetration, and 10% more volleys... and you crit your first hit every time you come back. What more could you want begin game? Some crappy boots?

Second buy and third buy(May be switched depending on the situation, but I usually have money for both when I go back):

Vampire Scepter

It may seem useless this early in the game, but it really does help HP in the long run. Also because you'll need this to build up to something else.

Speed Boots

I used to think getting boots early was stupid but I was dead wrong. For 350, the benefit you gain off of these is amazing, and I was completely stupid. I apologize for throwing you off if you followed my build, but at the time I knew no better.

Fourth buy

The Bloodthirster

At this point of the game you should already know whether you're going to win or going to lose. If you played your cards well, you should have assured a victory for the rest of the team through assisting various kills with your ultimate and taking some out yourself. So now it's time for the overkill... now it's time to unleash your thirst of blood. A stunning 60 damage and 15% lifesteal, and if you farm 40 more minions, the beauty of 100 damage and 25% lifesteal. Get the BF sword first obviously.

Fifth, Sixth, other and desperate buys(May be switched depending on the situation)

Malady

This will give you an edge in getting more hits in the inevitable full team battles you will encounter. If you can't afford it, at least buy parts of it to give you small boosts as you go ahead.

Infinity Edge

Bring in the 900 crits pls. Get the B F sword first, then everything else. If you don't have mad money to spend, go for malady first.

Boots of Mobility

Useful in situations where you need to be moving around a lot. If they're necessary, get them earlier.

Ninja Tabi

Cheap and help you for both movement and survival. If they're necessary, get them earlier.

Last Whisper

If your enemies are making a last stand with armor, use this to show them that it will indeed be their last stand.

Cooldown reduction items

If you're endgame and don't know what to get, cooldown reduction is the way to go. Spam those skills even harder than before.

Agility Elixir

Use this in situations where the next confrontation will decide the fate of the game. The attack speed and crit will make you a force to be reckoned with.

Strength Elixir

Use this in situations where the next confrontation will decide the fate of the game. The damage and health will give you a small but very useful boost.

Alternative build


I changed my mind there is no alternative build

Skills

Definitely max out volley as soon as possible. Get your ultimate every time you can, and everything else goes to frost shot. That bounty attack is junk, they should honestly change it.

Comments

-I hate noobs who made people think that Ashe is for noobs
yourself well or can't play with your team properly or can't press q or w and click on the opponent
-Avoid laning with people such as alistar, taric, master yi, warwick and tryandmere because they can heal and you're never going to get a kill off them before you reach level 6 unless they're completely sux or you have a friend with you
-Solo mid is no longer an obligation when you play my style, as a matter of fact going to other lanes with people is preferred to leave way for better mid solos
-If you want to play a match and see my Ashe in action I'll gladly play against you to show you that you're wrong when you say my build is ****
-Don't **** talk if you're not planning to back it up
-Peace

UPDATE: This build works almost 3x better than my old build, for the simple reason that my old build was built in the wrong order and had unnecessary items.

Nice write up man. It's not exactly how I do things, but I can see where it would work just as well. It's good to see someone besides me finally saying "TAKE CLARITY" instead of just insisting that Chalice is mandatory on Ashe.

Oh and I quoted the following for massive ****ing emphasis:

Hope to get a chance to test my Ashe against yours!

I like the guide but I'd probably never use it unless there were a couple other people vying for solo mid on my team. Ashe is a beast solo mid.. so unless there's an Annie, Teemo, or other excellent solo laner.. I'm solo mid with my usual build.

Clarity seems awesome for Ashe and I'm surprised I've never tried it out yet. Thank you (you too Falanx).

It's a very risky build and requires much skill to be played out properly(this is glass cannon in it's purest form), but once you master it you'll become a destruction machine(especially when teamed up with a singed or a blitz)

I'm glad you didn't tell people to get bounty, but I still have some problems with it.


Item Build you Have:
Brutalizer: It's still pretty decent, CD redux means more icbms from across the map. The ATT/Armor Pen is decent as well..
Malady: I don't really like this on ashe, it seems you're building around this item though, which I think is a mistake.
Last Whisper: Decent item.
Bloodthirster: the lifesteal is wasted, if you're getting hit on this build, you'll die.
Boots of Swiftness: This is the preferred item for Ashe, it helps her chase... but why the bloody hell do you wait to a point in the game you probably don't even get to
Infinity Edge: This is a good item.

Malady/Last Whisper: I don't agree with, the only time you get to stand still is when your oppoenents are morons and ignore you in a team fight, or when you're pushing towers. In addition to this reason, Swiftness should be moved up because while you'll probably catch them with frost shot, it will take you less time to reclose the gap in between shots if you get swiftness earlier. Ashe is one of the best chasers in the game, take advantage of it.

Clarity is interesting, but I like my exhaust too much. I just nab a golem buff and call it good.

Items I go:
Maki Pendent+2 Health Pots
Boots (Zerkers for pub stomping, Swiftness otherwise, mercury treads if they have a lot of CC)
Black Cleaver
Banshee's Veil
Infinity Edge
Whatever the game is over, last whisper for the Armor Pen probably.

You don't die in 1 hit, with this build up to fully charged bloodthirster you can recover full in hp in about 6-7 minion hits from 20% full, so you're basically unstoppable 1 on 1.
The malady could be changed I guess, although I'm often in a situation where I need faster attack speed more than running since I usually team up with a singed who throws them right at me after slowing them. This is why I said it depends. I can also very well see the usefulness of boots, however I'm not a person who likes to give up my damage for something like running. It might be a flaw of mine I guess.

While there's no doubt you'd do a sufficient amount of damage, I can't help but feel that an Ashe without banshee's and +health items would be really easy to gank/focus fire. Phage and Veil are essential, imo.

I am extremely easy to gank and focus fire. Who says I'm going to be the first one in though? Ultimate, get singed to throw them back at me, and kill 1 guy off. I don't need to get anywhere in range of their entire party to kill somebody. Plus, how many of them can there be? The worst will be all 5, and it's extremely hard to full party ambush someone unless your team mates are completely retarded and don't call mia. Twitch/Evelynn combo is a dangerous one for this Ashe build, however.

@Blinzer: No love for the tank-Ashe build I saw you use yesterday? With a couple Warmog's and an Atma's, who needs lifesteal? I can attest that lack of boots didn't seem to cramp your style at all. Once they're frosted, Ashe is faster than any other hero on the map, boots or no.

Brutalizer maybe good. Havent used it but I normally go straight blood thirster first. Followed by berserker greaves -> Bloodrazer maybe. if not the infinity edge. Thirster i can get within 12 minutes. Assuming im farming good and that i know how to play ashe really well.
