Corki looks like a very fun character, but upon researching appears to have 2 very different builds ap and ad. Which one is more effective?

Trinity Force is the item you need.

In higher level games "pros" do boots + catalyst first.

Go AD and carry. I tried both and had more success with AD.

Passive: Basic attacks deal 10% additional true damage to minions, monsters, and champions.

Active [Q]:Deals 80/130/180/230/280 damage with 0.5AP scaling.

Active [W]: Deals 60/90/120/150/180 damage with 0.4AP scaling per second.

Active [E]: Fires for 3/3.5/4/4.5/5 seconds, dealing a quarter of his total damage and shredding 1/2/3/4/5 armor with each shot.

Active [R]: Deals 125/200/275 damage 0.3AP scaling. Every fourth missle is a big one (i think thats double dmg). Remember this spell is super spammable.




Those are the basic stats, now lets say you go AP corki and get around, oh, say 400AP...

Q: 280 + 200 = 480dmg.
W: 180 + 160 = 340dmg per second.
E: Scales with physical dmg.
R: 275 + 120 = 395dmg (big one should be 790, assuming its double dmg).

While if you go AD:

Q: 280dmg
W: 180dmg
E: Scales with physical dmg.
R: 275dmg (big one should be 550, assuming its double dmg).



These are pretty much the raw stats of AP corki versus AD corki. To me, both routes look appealing.

If you want to go gank corki (there is already a carry on your team), id go AP, so you can burst like a monster.

If you wanna go carry corki, his passive and his E button scale very well making him a great carry.

TL;DR up 2 u, AP seems better for ganking, AD seems better for being a carry.

"Too long, didn't read" basically some people have troubles reading walls of text (or reading for a prolonged amount of time), so if your trying to get a point across and your text is a nice solid wall, TL;DR saves many people's braincells.

Basically its a summary.

AD is much more effective, and be sure to rush black cleaver. Machine gun applies on hit effects such as black cleaver's armor pen. Just harass early game with auto attack + bomb and max machine gun for spamming once you build some AD items.

So you're saying reading kills braincells? Wow idiots these days.

It's basically a short version for the people that LACK the brain cells to read. They have to Google a word in every sentence so they shy away from reading. I'm guessing you're one of them.

This is why we have high school students that read at a 3rd grade level. Reading is the basis for all learning, everything you learn in school will deal with reading, you fall behind in reading you fall behind in everything. Stay in school kids.

AD is generally more effective. Gatling and rockets are his best offensive abilities, and rockets have a poor AP ratio and are good enough without AP.
