Sivir Champion Spotlight

Greetings summoners,

Sivir, the Battle Mistress is one of my favorite champions. She excells at gathering hordes of gold and Sivir-ly increasing her team's chances of winning. Despite her straightforward nature, she has a large number of extremely varied builds. This spotlight focuses on a pushing, supporting, buff-grabbing variant.

Check out the video just below and scroll farther down for more detailed information on build, strategy, and playstyle.

<object width="640" height="385"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/IEfr1KeQEuw&hl=en_US&fs=1&"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/IEfr1KeQEuw&hl=en_US&fs=1&" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="640" height="385"></embed></object>

Sivir deals both physical and magical damage in large numbers. Boomerang Blade has a 1:1 AP ratio both on the way forward and back. Provided you can land the shot repeatedly, you can play AP Sivir for a lot of damage. The safer build relies more on her basic attack, relying on Ricochet to cut apart enemy teams. Her Spell Shield is deserving of at least 1 point extremely early in the game, often at level 2. If you have good reflexes and prediction skills, Spell Shield becomes a source of mana regeneration, further increasing your lane presence.

While I execute a neutral/push/support build in the video, another common build is pure physical DPS, typically still investing in Stark's Fervor and Chalice of Harmony, but quickly amassing Bloodthirsters and a Last Whisper or Youmuu's Ghostblade.

My skill order is:
<ol>
<li>Boomering Blade
<li>Spell Shield
<li>Boomering Blade
<li>Ricochet
<li>Boomering Blade
<li>On the Hunt
<li>Boomering Blade
<li>Ricochet
<li>Boomering Blade
<li>Ricochet
<li>On the Hunt
<li>Ricochet
<li>Ricochet
<li>Spell Shield
<li>Spell Shield
<li>On the Hunt
<li>Spell Shield
<li>Spell Shield
</ol>

My item build, along with some other recommend items are:
<ul>
<li>Meki Pendant + 2 Health Potions
<li>Boots of Speed - Mercury Treads or Berserker's Greaves
<li>Chalice of Harmony
<li>Stark's Fervor
<li>Madred's Bloodrazor
<li>Last Whisper
<li>Bloodthirster
<li>Guardian Angel
<li>Youmuu's Ghostblade
<li>More Bloodthirsters

</ul>

Heh, he doesn't really need one, does he?
I'm a completely avarage (if not below) player, and even I can play (and do, loving it) Teemo like there's no tomorrow. I usually go for a pure attack speed and attack damage build, but there are many builts that really, really work with him.

On Sivir, she has always been one of my favourite heroes, together with Tristana and Teemo, and even though I don't play her well, I always knew I could do a lot better. This spotlight has given me a lot to think about and try out. I'm pretty sure that I'll play Sivir a lot better next time. ^^

Thanks dude.

Because activating Ricochet and auto-attacking deserves a video guide and item build.
