  • Introduction

    Hello everybody!
    My name is Andrey and I am going to present you my Evelynn guide.
    As you all know Evelynn considered to be noob, low tier champion. She has no zoning abilities, no projectiles of any kind. She is all melee. Squishy melee that is. Plus she counters easily with a ward or an oracle...
    but you still came here? You still reading this worthless Evelynn guides. You still love this purple ho? You still love being a total asscrack towards the other team? You like it? You like to hear in the end of the game \"EVE CHEAP BASTARD\" and there is nothing better for you then seeing a ragequit and bunch of nubs crying in the end of the game?
    Yes, I like it and you like it as well.
    So, you ready to deep yourself in Eves' breasts and start reading this awful guide?
    Well here we go! :)

  • Abilities

    [spell=Determined Killer]
    I am surprised this is left unchanged.
    This passive will help you gank on very early lvls, when minions actually hurt.
    Fucking worthless passive.

    Hate Spike
    Ahhh hate spike. Our Rylai's Crystal Scepter triggering ability, main DPS and just overall nice skill. More on it\'s usage later.

    Shadow Walk
    You need this on lvl 2 or 3 as soon as possible. 10 seconds is JUST miserable. When you have DoT effects or people hit you won't go to stealth fully until you suffer no more dmg. Use brushes to your advantage.
    Now, when you hit, you slow. But worry not, I found a way to make it seem like a stun, continue reading, nubs.

    1:1 nuke. With [item=Mejai\'s Soulstealer] + Rabadon's Deathcap it becomes a pain rape.
    This is your main spell as an AP Eve and last spell as AD.

    [spell=Malice and Spite]
    Free ghost any time, any day.
    When someone on the other team dies, regardless was it because of you or not, this ult refreshes.

  • Is Evelynn still viable?

    Yes she is, if you have your hands out of your shoulders.
    Just think about it. You have 1:1 nuking ability that reduces armor and MR basically making the target suffer dicks from your team.
    She is still an assassin. It's just now you have to think about positioning and timing twice as hard, turn your brains on.

    Your main weapon now is early ganking. If you won't gank early, you are useless. YOU HAVE TO GANK EARLY!!!
    Like, from lvl 3. Take the advantage of ward/oracles absence and give'em hell.

    Don't forget about Evelynn this easily. We returned to basics, where people underestimate you. Use this fact and rape their guts out.

  • AP or AD?

    Huge debate. After all the changes BOTH VARIANTS ARE VALUABLE.
    There is no argument anymore.
    I'm gonna show you both AP and AD and give advices.

    Here is cons and pros.

    +True assassin.
    +Huge 1:1 nuke that lowers armor and MR.
    +Easier early ganks.
    +Squishes die much faster. (E + ignite + double Q hurts really bad)
    -Not as good at chasing as AD.
    -Questionable sustained dmg. Your Q doesn't hurt much until late lvls.
    -If you fail early ganks you are useless through whole game.

    +Great sustained DMG
    +Ghostblade + your ulti IS NOT EVEN FUNNY!
    +Can achieve really high movement speed. Good chaser.
    +Is good against beefcakes as well.
    -Bad early ganks, can not pull enough dmg.
    -Very dependable on itemization.
    -Have to stand in a team fight long enough to do dmg, being squishy melee.

    It's ALL up to you to decide what you like. Try both and see what fits. I'll go into more detail on both AP and AD

  • AP

    Masteries and runes
    -Use 9/0/21
    -Take EXP, speed and mana regeneration.
    -Take Flash improvement.

    For runes take:

    1. Standard mage setup
    It's a safe setup. Works great. This is standard for me
    Greater Mark of Insight
    Greater Seal of Clarity
    Greater Glyph of Celerity or Greater Glyph of Focus
    Greater Quintessence of Swiftness or Greater Quintessence of Fortitude

    2. Magic Pen setup
    Very risky, but with this mag.pen. you can do dmg you couldn't do before.
    Greater Mark of Insight
    Greater Seal of Vitality
    Greater Glyph of Insight
    Greater Quintessence of Insight

    Summoner spells
    Ignite - Obvious choice. Extra damage you need.
    Flash - All around good spell. Flash to the turret, get a kill, turn ult to get away.
    Any other spells for AP Evelynn is invalid as they don't give you advantage those 2 spells give.

    Main Build

    Boots of Mobility + [item=Mejai\'s Soulstealer]
    This secures that your early ganks won't go to waste. Try to build as much stacks as possible before laning stage ends.

    Possible items:

    Rylai's Crystal Scepter - this item is a MUST. I repeat you MUST BUY it.
    With stun removal you have to use every possible CC you can get. Slow stacks. That means 35%+50% = 85% slow. Which is not bad. Very good actually. Just make sure you open your invis with E.
    Of course there is +500 health which is very nice, you won't look as squishy.

    Hextech Gunblade - Now this item is highly valuable for Evelynn. Nice AP and AD boost and spell vamp. But the main purpose is... 35%+50%+50% = 135% GOD FUCKING DAMN! That's what I'm talking about. They will be so slowed it will feel like a stun.

    Rabadon's Deathcap - If you got like 10-15 stacks this item will be a pleasure boosting you AP through the roof.

    [item=Banshee\'s Veil] - Sometimes you need a little more survivability. In combination with Rylai's Crystal Scepter you will look really tanky and have this awesome orb around you.
    This combination makes a lot harder to kill. So if you are targeted really really bad. Consider this.

    Tips for AP
    -Position yourself really well in a teamfight. When you see very tense situation go around to the squishes lane. As soon as teamfight opens put your balls all over squishy carry and do not go off.
    -If they all suddenly change their target on you that good as well. That means that tanks will leave first row to get you off their carries. That means your team can rape them sideways.
    -Try not to blindly attack the person with an oracles.
    -DO NOT let oracles screw you.
    -Study the range of oracles. It will help you.
    -DO NOT target tank with oracles. You can kill him last. He will not see you anyway, if you come from the back to squishes.
    -Your attack combo is like this
    W -> get to the person -> position yourself good -> glance at the map to know the whereabouts of other and your team -> E -> Q -> Gunblade active -> R -> Q -> Chase if possible.

  • Masteries and runes

    -Use 21/0/9
    -Take attack speed and critical chance.
    -Take exhaust/ghost improvement
    -Use 0/21/9
    -Take ardor and defensive Mastery
    -Take ghost improvement
    -Take health

    For runes take:
    1. Standard AD setup
    Safe setup. Works with any AD.
    Greater Mark of Desolation
    Greater Seal of Vitality or Greater Seal of Evasion
    Greater Glyph of Celerity or Greater Glyph of Focus
    Greater Quintessence of Swiftness or Greater Quintessence of Fortitude

    2. Attack speed setup
    Be careful with this one. It gives you great results when you get Ghostblade. Use this ONLY if you are confident.
    Greater Mark of Alacrity
    Greater Seal of Alacrity or Greater Seal of Resilience
    Greater Glyph of Alacrity or Greater Glyph of Focus
    Greater Quintessence of Alacrity

    Summoner spells

    Ghost + Youmuu's Ghostblade + Boots of Mobility + Greater Quintessence of Swiftness + Phantom Dancer x 3... this is DERP.
    Exhaust - Is needed in this pesky 1vs1 fights.
    Ignite - You may consider this. But not advisable.

    Main Build

    Boots of Mobility + Youmuu's Ghostblade
    Activating R + Ghostblade active is just RIDICULOUS. It's like dipping your dick into the mixer. It's like you go SUPER SAIYAN mode.

    Possible items:

    Infinity Edge - You want to be awesome? You want kill squishes in several hits? Try this baby out.
    Very expensive, so start collecting when you are winning. You will never finish it, when you are losing.

    Phantom Dancer - Stackable. Not advisable, but you can try. It's fun seeing Eve run so fast, you don't even have time to react. Still buy one for crit. chance and attack speed.

    [item=Madred's Bloodrazor] - If they are all beefcakes. Very expensive. Try to start building from the beginning.

    Frozen Mallet - Adds to your overall slow and gives a lot of health. Buy it, if you are sick of being everyone's favorite whore.

    Tips for AD
    -Think twice before doing anything. You have to survive long enough to put some damage on.
    -You chase outstandingly well.
    -DO NOT get cocky.
    -LVLing Q first gives more dmg to your overall DPS.
    -Always come from the back.
    -Use speed to your advantage to lure noobs out.
    -DO NOT towerdive. It's a little harder as AD eve.
    -DO NOT buy Trinity Force it sucks on Eve so badly.
    -Get red. It will add up to your slow.

  • Overall tips.

    Map dominating -
    Make go invisibility COMMON. Do it often. So when you go invis again and head out to gank mid, nobody will cal mia.

    Jungle stealing
    This might be fun.
    If you are somewhat winning and pushed them back, but yet not near the tower, check the enemies golem or lizard, chances are, you will find somebody there. The point is, do not atack the person, but steal the buff with your E as soon as it\'s low and then run away.
    Seriously, I once stole a warwicks lizard and he was standing there like 5 sec. thinking this over and then started to trash me down in all, I was just loling on my floor :)

    Do they see me?
    Okay, right after level 6 or 9 they can start buying oracles and wards, how do you know if they have this shit or not?
    -Check for oracles every time.
    -Do a faint move, I mean first move to him and then suddenly fall back, if they used there skillshots... they see you.
    -Glowing orange aura... I think everybody knows about this, when an enemy person targets you, he will have slight glowing orange aura.
    This works on minions too, just go in stealth ahead of your minions, and if the enemy ones start to glow orange, FALL BACK, WARD HERE!!
    (this one actually saved my ass so many times, if this Ryze starts glowing when I am in stealh, OH GOD SHIT FALL BACK!

    Another stealh hero.
    It may so happen, that enemy can pick stealh as well.
    It is YOUR duty to buy oracles, if the enemy have stealh.
    The faster you get them, the better, you have a huge advantage over the other stealh chamion.
    Don't go over your head buying a lot of them, though.

    Double slow.
    Turn on invis and in a team fight cast Hate spike. Because it targets two people at the same time, you'll get double slow!

  • Evelynn's friends.

    Here we go with friends.

    External Image
    Sion - Well... DERP! This boy will give you stun that was taken away from you. A good lane partner for double burst.

    External Image
    Blitzcrank - slow the target -> grab -> knock-up -> face full of fists!

    External Image
    Morgana - This is nice, deadly combo
    slow -> root -> pain river -> hate spike up the ars.
    You know what morgana can do? keep hurted opponents near you... and that\'s great :)

    External Image
    Nocturne - Oh boy this will go hard on enemies ass.
    Coordinate with Nocturne to pull out incredible ganks.

    External Image
    Enough said. Use this to your advantage as much as possible.

  • Hateful heroes

    Ok, let\'s see what champions will just grind your ass long and hard. I will go alphabetical.

    External Image
    Alistar - tank... a very heavy one. With his ult and abilities you can hardly even scratch him. But he... he can nail your ass to his turret and rape you apart there. So be careful. Another thing if this beast buys an oracle. This is just a big pain in all parts of our body. A fully geared Alistar with oracle is just... ahm...
    Well anyway coordinate with your teammates to do a surprise atack on him and get a kill before 4 angry enemies with foam around their mouthes run and cap your ass for all it\'s worth.

    External Image
    Anivia - No, no it\'s not burst dmg, it\'s her egg. There were so many times I happily kill Anivia near turret, only to realize that she is alive and I do not have enough time. And usually. I die.
    Be aware of her egg form, other then that. Easy, fast kill.

    External Image
    Blitzcrank - Big junk of metal... I hate him, hate him with all my heart! Grab is your worth nightmare ever possible. Try to stay away and don\'t get cocky. Killing champs in your line with him is twise as hard now. So quickly get the hell out.

    External Image
    Cho\'Gath - A big health fountain. But it\'s not his health I fear of... his ult... you think you can kill him, he has one bar of life left... C\'MON! NOM-Nom-NOM \"You have been slain!\" GODDAMNIT!!
    Overall try not to assault this big guy, bad idea.

    External Image
    Evelynn - stupid, noob, KS character. Buy oracles and kick her out? Yep :)

    External Image
    Janna - Eye Of The Storm -> Howling Gale -> Eye Of The Storm -> Howling Gale -> Eye Of The Storm -> Howling Gale \"You have been slain!\" JESUSCRHIST!!

    External Image
    Morgana - Good luck assaulting her full health.
    Good tip - do her in 2 or 3 tries. You will not kill her in one go. Try to approach her in small bursts and then go for a big fat kill.

    External Image
    Lee Sin - The bastard can see you IN STEALH. God freakin' damnit. Stay away from him as MUCH AS POSSIBLE.

  • Summary

    I updated the guide.
    Nerfs were really hard. But if we stop crying and just try to think what we can improve, we'll be back on our feat IN NO TIME.
    Evelynn brothers. SHE IS NOT DEAD. I will continue playing her whatever the reason. Stay with me.

    If you enjoyed reading my guide, then, please, rate and comment.
    Do not be offended by my rants, I am just fcking around here :)
