Read the update here: http://www.surrenderat20.net/2015/01/113-pbe-update.html currently just visuals and a small change to trist but im still gonna go over the top ADC's of patch 4.21 and other champs. Just give me a second, i will include all changes here VVV Once this line of text is replaced DONE. that signifys that time done with the guide. 1. First off, runes summoners and champ spells HAVE NOT changed since. They're fine and there still was no changes to these items/spells this season. 2. [img=http://i.imgur.com/GMyDanM.jpg] Hi my name is Dealer [ign] or niggysaurus on this website. And this guide is going to teach you the in and outs of draven. My guide is aim towards being very straight forward and to the point. As a typical person trying to learn a champion there is that one guide where there is absolutely way too much info. My guide will boost you up the ladder and also be a pro at it. Hopefully my guide will help your struggle out of \"Elo Hell\" :) [img=http://puu.sh/6xInj.jpg] [img=http://puu.sh/5tIC4.jpg] [img=http://puu.sh/6tB94.jpg] [img=http://puu.sh/6xmMK.jpg] [img=http://puu.sh/63NjP.png] [vid=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vbH5-laRdCA] Theres a few tips for draven in here. Keep in mind this is a mediocre video i made and i tried my best. You can just watch how I play draven. I might upload raw footage next time. [vid=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sYyVO68bZQs] Extremely quick video on width catching axes. [vid=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-gn9NRy5Z3g] Super sick. My axes didnt show cuz fk baron replays. anyways. its sick. [b]Pros:[/b] -Outscales ANY Adc -Can GG a game if first blood [Usually i can do that] -Amazing poke at FULL build or when really fed. -Wins you game 53%+ of the time -Amazing synergy and GG lanes with correct supports [[img=champ/thresh.png] yo thats me] -Super easy to carry with -Extremely scary passive when he gets first blood -AMAZING mechanics [the harder the mechanics the easier the carry] -Can come back from a losing lane EASILY with his passive stacked high -Sexy [b]Cons:[/b] -USELESS passive when you do NOT get a kill [Literally does NOTHING if you do not get a kill. I mean, it just stacks gold...] -Can get countered easily by supports with nuke abilities can easily predict the axe and fire away -Loses trade TERRIBLY if their support has heals -Tremendous lost of power if you do not catch axes in the levels of 1-6 -Can get caught SUPER easily with his [img=skills/draven/w.png] up -Relies completely on and [img=skills/draven/w.png] [img=summoners/flash.png] for escape. Thats why thresh is the best pick. -Can get zoned out which means losing axes is so easy. Draven summed up after one kill. http://gifmaker.cc/PlayGIFAnimation.php?folder=2014090506EpmUg4QNb12nc4sf7lesvb&file=output_SzIfO3.gif ctrl c ctrl v fking idiot

Draven's [img=skills/draven/e.png] counters many champs skill shots such as: [img=champ/aatrox.png] [img=skills/aatrox/q.png] Time it right [img=champ/akali.png] Not played, can counter her [img=skills/akali/r.png]. Very hard to do this because you just need to predict when she will [img=skills/akali/r.png] [img=champ/alistar.png] Possible to counter [img=skills/alistar/w.png] Pretty easy to predict. [img=champ/amumu.png] You must [img=skills/draven/e.png] AFTER he [img=skills/amumu/q.png] [img=champ/caitlyn.png] [img=skills/caitlyn/e.png] time it right and you can block it [img=champ/corki.png] [img=skills/corki/w.png] just like cait [img=champ/diana.png] just like akali [img=champ/fiora.png] Can block [img=skills/fiora/q.png] [img=champ/fizz.png] block [img=skills/fizz/q.png] [img=champ/gragas.png] block [img=skills/gragas/e.png] too easy to block. just e when hes near you [img=champ/graves.png] [img=skills/graves/e.png] easy to block [img=champ/irelia.png] [img=skills/irelia/q.png] too easy [img=champ/jarvaniv.png] block [img=skills/jarvaniv/e.png][img=skills/jarvaniv/q.png] combo [img=champ/jax.png] block [img=skills/jax/q.png] [img=champ/jayce.png] block [img=skills/jayce/q.png] [img=champ/khazix.png] block [img=skills/khazix/e.png] [img=champ/leblanc.png] possible to block [img=skills/leblanc/w.png] [img=champ/leesin.png] easy to block [img=skills/leesin/q.png] [img=champ/leona.png] hard to block [img=skills/leona/e.png] but possible. Works like amumu' [img=champ/lissandra.png] time it right before she max's her [img=skills/lissandra/e.png] range like how far it can go and you can prevent her escape. [img=champ/lucian.png] exactly like graves [img=champ/nautilus.png] block [img=skills/nautilus/q.png] [img=champ/nidalee.png] block [img=skills/nidalee/r.png] pounce. But that wont matter too much. [img=champ/pantheon.png] Possible to block [img=skills/pantheon/w.png] [img=champ/quinn.png] block [img=skills/quinn/e.png] [img=champ/renekton.png] block [img=skills/renekton/e.png] [img=champ/riven.png] block her last q [img=skills/riven/q.png] [img=champ/sejuani.png] block [img=skills/sejuani/q.png] [img=champ/shen.png] block [img=skills/shen/e.png] [img=champ/thresh.png][img=skills/thresh/q.png] yes you can block it when he dashes towards you [img=champ/tristana.png] [img=skills/tristana/w.png] block time it right [img=champ/tryndamere.png] block [img=skills/tryndamere/e.png] [img=champ/vayne.png][img=skills/vayne/q.png] easy to block [img=champ/vi.png] block[img=skills/vi/q.png] [img=champ/wukong.png] block [img=skills/wukong/e.png] [img=champ/xinzhao.png] block [img=skills/xinzhao/e.png] he usually still able to slow you [img=champ/yasuo.png] block [img=skills/yasuo/e.png] [img=champ/zac.png] block [img=skills/zac/e.png] [img=champ/ziggs.png] block [img=skills/ziggs/w.png] And thats it!

[big]Working with you support or duo to find the best comp. This will be updated regularly. As of now the best bot lane duo is [from top is best to bottom is worst][/big][img=champ/draven.png][img=champ/braum.png] BRAUM [not on solomid yet] is absolutely op. Both thresh and braum are great supports and still recommend trying both regardless. [Although pick braum even if open.] ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- [img=champ/draven.png][img=champ/morgana.png] I have no clue why morgana NOW is a great support. She always was but was underestimated. I guess LCS determines viability lol. Overally this champ is probably the best counter to all support since they ALL do AP dmg. No that means you should run zed support because it counters her. This is on the top of the food chain so just keep in mind when countering their supports. Look up a guide when using morgana. She is very easy to use if you know what you're doing. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- [img=champ/draven.png][img=champ/thresh.png] [op dmg, AMAZING escape for draven, the best bot lane] [img=champ/draven.png][img=champ/braum.png] [ ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- VV Both lanes are situational. Passive support vs passive support is good. Zilean will outscale a janna. Janna comes better at more countering assassins. Same with zilean but its easier with zilean. [img=champ/draven.png][img=champ/janna.png] [more of passive and poke lane, hardly any sustain, great defensive play, more of a passive support][img=champ/draven.png][img=champ/zilean.png] [Uhm. Hes making a comeback. Not the champion you would want though. Draven loves dmg supports.] ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Both debatable VVV [img=champ/draven.png][img=champ/sona.png] [great poke, great sustain, good ulti stun to follow up, horrible against mobile champs like blitz or high mobility] [img=champ/draven.png][img=champ/nami.png] Bonus DMG, Heal, Movement speed nice peal. Currently a strong pick. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- [img=champ/draven.png][img=champ/gragas.png] have not gotten this support that much but its definitely worth a try. Gragas DOES NOT have a very well lane phase but an amazing peel! Draven loves peel :)[b] [This guy is AFK from support atm while he takes top lane. Please hold.][/b] ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- [img=champ/draven.png][img=champ/leona.png] [In patch 4.13 the draven burst is more real now. either pure HAM mode or full defensive mode, if you win lane go hard! if you lose lane, she cannot provide anything but defensive support, awesome against annie] ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- [img=champ/draven.png][img=champ/karma.png] Great movement speed, shields, and snare for draven to catch up and clean up the target. Though it can be annoying not being able to catch axes on time because of karma's [img=skills/karma/e.png] ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- [img=champ/draven.png][img=champ/annie.png] [great damage, horrible against a poke lane, not good with sustain, meh lane] ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- [img=champ/draven.png][img=champ/taric.png] [you gain both passive and offensive stats, only good against mobile champs and champs like poke champs or super weak adc's like ezreal and cait] ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- [img=champ/draven.png][img=champ/alistar.png] [great heal, awesome peel, but sadly too long of CD's to help peel in certain situations, WAY TOO squishy if extremely behind] ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- [img=champ/draven.png][img=champ/soraka.png] [straight up defensive, but you can still go hard because of health and mana given from soraka] -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

[big]Resetting axes:[/big] Usually when im fed or pushing up a lane you gotta reset them bad bois [img=skills/draven/q.png]. How do i this without minions you may ask? Well there is our lovely Wright Camp [img=http://puu.sh/8Psb4.jpg] Simply place a ward and boom! Free resets! I usually take the camp if im extremely fed [no fear of fighting anytime or harassing for resets and because you should be able to heal for all the dmg] [img=http://puu.sh/8Psar.jpg] Not getting caught. [img=http://puu.sh/8PtZl.jpg] [img=http://puu.sh/8PtZB.jpg] [img=http://puu.sh/8PtZQ.jpg] [img=http://puu.sh/8PtZ4.jpg] [img=http://puu.sh/8Pu0H.jpg]

Few ADC's struggle to cs under tower. Now note this depends on their support but no one really runs [img=champ/janna.png][img=champ/sona.png][img=champ/nami.png] anymore. You can. But they're too damn squishy. [big]But who do i force under tower?[/big] [img=champ/ezreal.png] The worst champ to CS undertower. Wasting [img=skills/ezreal/q.png] to cs makes him to easy to kill if he needs to escape because he will have no mana. [img=champ/twitch.png] The [img=skills/twitch/p.png] passive can help finish off the kill but most of the time i find myself not able to completely kill the minion. [img=champ/tristana.png] With her [img=skills/tristana/e.png] she will hurt the other minions and the rhythm of the turret wont be able to last hit and the tower will easily take all the minions. Forces trist to [img=skills/tristana/q.png] to pick up CS. [img=champ/kogmaw.png] Not enough DMG to last hit. Forces to use [img=skills/kogmaw/w.png] to last hit [img=champ/lucian.png] Base dmg too low. [img=skills/lucian/q.png] will do less dmg if not put 2 points before lvl 4. You can deny enemy cs by taking their skill shots to stop them cs with their abilities. If you are truly dominating your lane taking the harass from them trying to farm is nothing. Just do not get caught and heal back up the dmg you took. Ex: [img=champ/ezreal.png] uses [img=skills/ezreal/q.png] to farm. Block dat shit. You're draven. Insane heals.

go hard. Lately the lanes have been either very passive or just luck. Seriously. Unless you have [img=champ/leona.png] or [img=champ/thresh.png] usually you can go all in. But depending on the other adc match up and the harass you're taking really matters. So really its just who can push lane first. Its very stressful for draven to lose lane. So figure who has the better harass or sustain. [img=champ/soraka.png] is a annoying champ avoid harass because you WILL ALWAYS lose trades. Especially with [img=champ/soraka.png][img=champ/caitlyn.png]. Massive poke. [big]What to buy with gold when making your first back[/big] With the new build I'm starting to use this how you can go both ways using them. Occult build 1-699 [img=items/long-sword.png][img=items/long-sword.png] Try to get both if possible. 700-1299 [img=items/pickaxe.png] 1300-1600 [img=items/pickaxe.png] [img=items/long-sword.png] [2 if you can] 1600-2400 [Rarely possible] [img=items/pickaxe.png] [img=items/sword-of-the-occult.png] [should be winning lane hard if you have this much gold.] Standard IE build 1-699 [img=items/dorans-blade.png] 700-1299 [img=items/pickaxe.png] [img=items/dorans-blade.png] [Try your best to wait for BF if not....] 1300-1600 [img=items/bf-sword.png] 1600-2400 [img=items/bf-sword.png] [img=items/pickaxe.png] [Dont buy double dorans if you can afford this first back. Just get vamp steal straight after IE if you REALLY need it. You should be fed with this first back option]

Share you power. You start shining more around the map. Dont be scared of them noobs. [b][big]ROAM BB[/big][/b]

Draven is pretty much toooo op at this point and poking is a must. Try bursting with your [img=skills/draven/w.png] and Autoattack and land a few crits. With extreme movement speed you can poke down a squishy before a team fight as draven will normally crit 1k~ but becareful with this method as you can get easily CC'd miss your axe and get caught. This is for draven's who have ton of experience.

I stay as the frontline before a team fight because i need to poke. So i usually im baiting myself. Though this isnt recommended. Try staying as far back as a usual adc. If you can aim directly for the MID carry or ADC. These are extremely easy to kill assuming mid isnt a tank. Catching axes as well is very tough so practice makes perfect right?

As every champion conclusion... YES draven is strong when you master him NO there is not median with draven. EITHER you're fed or you're complete worthless. YES draven is f-ing fun. YES you can carry yourself out of Bronze-Silver-Gold-Plat-Diamond YES draven relies on synergy supports. BLITZ SUCKS DICK STOP PLAYING BLITZ PLZ YES draven is awesome NO dont pick him if im playing against you.

[img=http://i.gyazo.com/ef09001c723005a05b27652c1260cc37.png] Stop buffing assassins. ADC's dont like that :( [img=http://i.gyazo.com/1dc30d1a0b8e5ffe7508b1b3dd5e4408.png] Stay where you are in the pits of the nerf valley [img=http://i.gyazo.com/662f347d88fba17719e73ac5c0a96be8.png] No one wants to see you get played. Especially if you counter draven a bit. [img=http://i.gyazo.com/a30d3013abf026a621a3621ddcea8f2e.png] >tfw when ur Q is the same as garens ult [img=http://i.gyazo.com/d25266bc15171675a783ad68ce5505df.png] No more one shotting. This time i can do something before i see my health drop to 0 in the fountain. [img=http://i.gyazo.com/871080fa5bcbd61d89a9dffc0e33b257.png] NOW WHEN I TRY TO KILL YOU. I CAN ACTUALLY DO THAT. STOP ULTING ME AWAY HOE. STOP JUMPING. Patch 4.16 summary: tons of bug fixes nothing major at all Patch 4.15 summary: honestly nothing changed...
