Poppy is one of those 'hardly used' champions. It is strange why this is so, being as she is one of the strongest mid-late game super powers. You can easily 3-4 hit any hard carries, mages or supports, and you have a very lengthy immunity to 4 champions. The best part about poppy is that she also does extreme damage to tanks being as she takes % of their health with devastating blow.

For runes you want to take cooldown reduction, flat health quintessences, as well as crit runes.

Masteries you must take a full 21 tree in offence and 9 in utility taking mana regeneration.

Lets get one thing out of the way. Poppy is terrible in the early game stages and relies solely on last hitting minions for gold. You need to (preferably) lane with a stunner or a champion with large crowd control to be effective. You only need a little bit of time to heroic charge and devastating blow your target, and a slow/stun is perfect

You want to take 1 point in all skills by level 3, and then MAX devastating blow afterwards. Take your ultimate, of course, as this will dominate your enemy
After that max out your heroic charge then finally paragon of demacia.
Your passive will allow you to withstand more harassment then most champions.

Your summoner spells should be ghost and teleport. You need to be in lane as much as possible to get the MOST amount of gold.

Her item reccomendations are pretty much spot-on. DO NOT GO ABILITY POWER
Item Build: Mana crystal
Boots of speed + mana regen potions
Sheen
Mercury treads
Phage
Zeal
Trinity force.
Bf Sword
Infinity edge
Bloodthirster
Thornmail/Banshees veil

Since devastating blow deals 100% of her attack damage, and trinity force and infinity edge both give crit chance, you want to build attack damage. Poppy is just so much more deadly. Devastating blow has a much shorter cooldown then heroic charge and does much more damage then heroic charge. Heroic charge is really an initiator, slowing your target so you can chase them with more devastating blows.

With poppy you cant be afraid of diving on a single target. Your designed to take out single target threats and get the f*** out of there. With trinity force and bf sword you will do incredible amounts of damage to your target. Don't be stupid however. if your team initates and you see a target that you can slam into a wall, do so. Only use your ultimate on targets without crowd control OR glass cannons. Take out one of their valuable damage dealers, then run away.

Not that it's a bad guide, but you put a little too much emphasis on how you kill a squishy and then GTFO. If you wanna do that, just play AP Poppy. The squishy will be dead before they can react most of the time.
