After receiving Corki and his leet ufo skin Ive been wondering is AP or attack power better for him? Ive seen the guides for both but feel like his AP doesnt make his abilities that much better and that going with attack power seems to output more dps

ive seen some nasty AP corkis but you should only really do it if you have no AP characters on your team as DPS is quite better.

if you are skilled though, AP corki can be devastating with lich bane procs and rockets that hurt a lot

Either way with Sheen.

You go AP for Lichbane and Missile Barrage-weaving >.>

My own experimentation sez some kind of middle ground - Enough mana to use abilities, enough damage to be threatening.

Both are viable. AP increases the damage of Valkyrie, Phos Bomb, and his Missiles, and his missiles are incredibly spammable in combat, making for some pretty big sustained DPS. Attack damage only increases his Autoattack and Gatling, but the combination (especially as both can fire at once, double-especially if you have a Black Cleaver) is pretty brutal.

If you do go Attack though, make sure you go pure attack damage. Black Cleaver, Infinity Edge, Bloodthirster, repeat. Attack Speed, Crit Chance, and Crit damage don't raise the power of his Gatling, greatly weakening his overall DPS output.

Also Sheen is always good on him, as it boosts both. The new Rageblade seems pretty good as well, since it triggers off of his very spammable abilities.

I think you should go DPS Corki, because with AP corki you will end up having nothing to proc lich bane fast enough after you use up your 7x rockets, which is bad during a teamfight. Just get some AS items and make sure to get a phage.

Build a Catalyst and Merc Threads. If they have more than one caster build a chalice. The only attack speed item you want is last whisper.

Uhhh... no no no? Last whisper is the worst item to ever get on corki, because you should never not have their defense in the negatives. If you really want attackspeed, go rageblade or starks ferver
