Nocturne play guide
Remembering the build and priority, nocturne is an assassin/melee and despite prior belief is infact not a jungler specialist. Works well against almost all champs in mid and should take mid to boost experience. Assassins normally should take mid, as they won't be able to do their job if they don't get strong quick. At level 6, nocturne should begin assassinating when he gets boots of swiftness. Don't pop paranoia unless you are giving a champion a killing blow, not if you are moving in for the kill, as this will give them a chance to escape and they will play defensive once the fog of war covers the map. If you see anyone soloing, assassinate if you are sure its not a trap. Always pop unspeakable horror when getting chased or when chasing, as when the other player is feared they will wonder around like chickens in a rainstorm and you can lay the damage per second on them. Nocturne is not a skill based damage per a second, but, a melee based, so his build is based around melee and not ability power. When trying an ability power build against a regular nocturne you will be sadly over powered, as the factors of mana, cooldown, and low hp will not make up for an enemy nocturnes ability to penetrate armor with the black cleaver, steal life with the blood luster, and do massive crits with the infinity edge simultaneously.

I use revive as my utility spell, but, I have a logical reason when not being trolled. Nocturne is a very powerful end game character. If you use revive near the beginning of the game, you did it wrong. Near the end game, nocturne can be like a disease to your enemies, if they get lucky and kill you near end game, they probably took a lot of effort into doing so, which in exchange will not help them when revive is popped near end game, rage ensues. Always never get ganked and play carefully with revive, that is the purpose of revive is for those who play carefully and go in for the kill when they are almost 100% sure they have it. If your friend is running from the enemy and you have full hp, don't wait for them to kill your ally before deciding to help, try to redirect fire and make a quick escape with phantom dancer x 2 and boots of swiftness combo. If you do not think my build is good and do not wish to try it out, then I will personally 1 v 1 any one champion who disagree's one person at a time until I cut through every last challenger and will not loose a single match.

Guide Appreciation
before you give me a thumbs up for this guide, please give me thumbs down if you like this guide, as I enjoy being notorious, thank you.

Get one level of Shroud at level 2, because a 20% passive attack speed increase is stupid good for one level of skill.
Then do the same priority as you said.

2nd that motion on shroud.
I kind of prefer wriggle's over thirster, and yogmu's over the 2nd phantom dancer, but good build it works I used it 2 out of 4 matches the day he came out.

So no inbetweens like throwing a bf sword into the mix or a random vamp scepter? Also how do you improvise if you do not get the best start?

This build is obscenely expensive.

I would say put a ghostblade in there its cheap, gives nice AD, nice crit, armor pen and the passive is nice with him, in place of a PD because you get alot of AS through your Black cleaver, 1 PD, your passive, and ghostblades active.

The "Not a jungler" comment means you cannot, he jungles fine and this build is obserdly inefficient and costly, you may pub stomp with this but no this is not a serious build, first double phantom+boots is a troll move speed build, you could not possibly get more out of boots 3 than mercs with double phantom nor should double phantom provide benefit to you, considering other AD choices. No, do not use revive o my word. And dont call it a build by stating priority not specific masteries or runes."Alaways never get ganked"!?!?!? how, or carry flash/ghost on a hero with no escape! Troll on my friend and pub stomp normal games.
Edit-And do not post a build when you only have 6 games played with a champ, are not lvl 30 and cannot have full masteries and only 2 of said games were actual games against non bots which you never had a positive kda ratio......

You're not full AS, you're AD/AS or AS/Crit. But your first items should never be 2 Phantom Dancers, that's just terribad...

Tried out the build today in 3's, used one Phantom Dancer and then went to the Black Clever then back to the second Phantom Dancer, it worked very well. 15-1-3. The build is very expensive, but the buff that his moves give you really can withhold their own, bonus AD and AS, until you can build your items.
