Added a section for Cass on Dominion!
+The new Masteries!
Overall a good guide, but I disagree with certain points. Particularly, rushing an abyssal scepter right as your first major item seems silly to me. I'd suggest getting a Rylai's scepter as the extra health will be god-send early game and the slow will be the only way you can possibly survive against a melee character late game. I've always preferred boots of swiftness over sorcerer's shoes since Cassiopeia is all about positioning and its important to outspeed everyone on the other team by a large enough amount to be able to twin fang them. Since I take boots of swiftness, I always take flash as its basically a get out of jail free card if you outspeed them (signifigantly that is, which you should with Noxious Blast) and Teleport to let you itemize while laning and ambush/farm late game.
More importantly though, Miasma is useless anyone without half a brain will realize how low the damage is and just ignore it (most melee champions outheal its damage just by attacking minions early game.)
I like thats all the information is put into a new thread for ease of access. I completely agree 9/21/0 is a good masteries set but as said by someone else im not sure its perfect. Either 9/21/0 or 9/0/21 work just aswell as eachother. Just preference.
The only thing i would actually disagree with is what the post above said. Rylais is amazing on her. Sure you dont have quite as much power to be getting all the kills but ist adds so much to your play. Makes it easier to catch others, easier to escape and slowing an entire team down in a 5v5 fight makes a massive difference.
Asylum and I are in the same school of Rylai... I firmly believe it is the best item you can get on Cassio.
Aean> Miasma is far from useless... it is a really good spell but you need to know how to use it. It is a positioning spell and your STRONGEST AoE... in a Teamfight you throw it in the middle of the bunch and it does a LOT of damage. If people move you succeeded messing up their positioning, if people does NOT move they will take full damage and a slow. Either way you win.
Other points I would consider:
- I do not believe AAS/Tear is necessary though I believe it is a good item
- My favorite build is something like: Sheen, Rylai, Abyssal, Zhonya, DeathCap, Boots, Lichbane. Obviously it is absurdly expensive but just Sheen+Rylai is enough to make you efficient. You just need to keep progressing in the build as far as you can.
- Some more ideas in this thread. I think it is considered the Cassio bible for the moment:
- I have a jungle cassio build... very very very situational but a LOOOT of fun. You only sacrifice summoner spells because you still get plenty of damage with it.
Tried the mejai's soulstealer suggestion. It worked quite well, even with only 1 or 2 kills i can rake up around 10 stacks by mid game because her assist score. From there i usually build survivability items to protect my stacks. With the stacks she actually scale up quite well in end game.
As long as I don't miss my noxius blast or miasma, my mejai stack will definitely going up even if i dont get the kills
