Strategy

  • Ranged ADs which have strong dueling potential like Vayne Vayne and Graves Graves can use this to further boost their dueling potential, making them difficult to take down if they are ahead, or giving them a better chance if they are behind.
  • Melee champions that focus on crit like Yasuo Yasuo and Tryndamere Tryndamere generally use this because they are easier to kite and this item's passive helps with that problem.
  • This item is a good alternative to Rapid Firecannon Rapid Firecannon on caster-focused ADCs if you don't need the extra range.
