Wuzzapinin folks? I'm Infinity and i'm trying to break into some higher level adc playing. I was just wondering, what's a good generic adc build? Something that will work mostly for just about any adc? I know characters are unique and therefor builds are unique and you may need certain items for certain enemies but I was just wondering on a basic generic build.

At the moment I've been starting with Blood Thirster and going to Zephyr then an Infinity's Edge as the idea. What are your thoughts?

The Zephyr is really designed for bruisers and AD casters. It's good for ADCs, but you should build it last not second or third.

start: Flask/5 potions/ward OR flask/3 potions/ward/2 mana potions

vampiric scepter, boots, optional Doran's Blade, Infinity Edge if you're doing amazing and Bloodthister otherwise

Phantom Dancer or Shiv, Last Whisper if they're building armor if not then build IE or Bloodthister depending on what you built earlier.

get a GA or Quicksilver Sash at some point


I don't follow this guide, but this is a generic build. I just build attack speed and put points into silver bolts.

Ok. So start with a flask and some potions? I thought Dorans blade was the adc starting item?

Then go to Vamp scepter? Like before boots?

You can start Doran's Blade if the following are both true: your support can heal you and you are certain your skill level is much higher than your opponent's. You can start boots/3 potions if you think your opponent has a high chance of killing you at level 2 (such as Draven with Taric or Leona). I'd get level 1 boots and the Vamp Scepter at the same time. If you go back before you have enough cash on hand for both then just use your best judgment. I'd generally prioritize the Vampire Scepter over boots.

Don't prioritize a BF sword or some other straight AD item over the Vampire Scepter. When I see my opponent walk back into lane with boots+B.F. Sword I know they have already lost.

1: Boots + 3 health pots
2: 2x Doran's Blade (optional)
3: Boots -> Berserker's Greaves
4: B.F. Sword -> Infinity Edge
5: Either Vampiric Scepter into Bloodtirster or start building Phantom Dancer.
6: Guardian Angel. (probably must have late game due to being focused)
7: Last Whisper against heavy armor teams.

Other optional: Tri-Force (for certain champions like corki and ez)

This is an example of a pretty standard ADC build.

Ok. So I'm just trying to pick up from all of you. So we start with boots and health pots?
Then a vamp scepter
Berserk greaves.
Now what?
Go for BT or IE?

For champs that scale heavily off AD (MF, Graves) I recommend BT
Champions like Ashe and Caitlyn would be better off having IE as their first item

It really depends on what champion your playing but most champs start out with:

Boots + 3 pots
2x dorans
zerker greaves
Ifinity edge
