Corki is one of the strongest champions currently used in competitive play due to his long range spells and massive damage from his passive. He has a very aggressive and poking play style. Both his damage comes from magical and physical making his carry insane.

[center][img=custom/reginald_corki/runes.jpg][/center] [title]Explanation:[/title] I use quintessence of Fortitude because it helps with my lane dominance. Seals and Glyphs are essential for my playstyle because attack speed really helps my early game laning as well. I play very aggressive. If you want to be as good as me, play aggressive.

[title][img=skills/corki/q.png] Q: Phosphorus Bomb[/title] [number]Deals 80/130/180/230/280 (+0.5) magic damage to enemies in a target area. In addition, the blast reduces an enemy's chance to hit by 35% and reveals the area for 5 seconds (does not reveal stealth). Cost 80/90/100/110/120 Mana Range 600 [/number] [title]Explanation:[/title] Corki's most important spell in the early stages of laning phase. It debuffs a target, making their attacks miss 35%. This spell is very good for one on one situations and is used for harassment in the early stages of laning. In the late stages of the game, using phosphorus bomb to check brushes is key. If you have the slightest thought that an enemy is waiting in a brush for a gank- use phosphorus bomb for vision. You better be safe, than sorry. The mana used to check a brush is nothing. Phosphorus bomb's range displayed in game is incorrect, and you're also able to land this spell slightly further than showed in the zone circle.

Cost 100/100/100/100/100 Mana Range 10000 [/number] [title]Explanation:[/title] Surprisingly, this spell has a very high skill cap. This is Corki's main escape spell and is also used to deal damage at times. Don't underestimate the damage done with this spell, it can easily be the difference between a kill and firstblood. By mastering this spell, you're able to dodge/negate Pantheon's stun and even escape from Warwick's ultimate. If timed correctly, the warwick ultimate will still stun you, however you'll be further away from warwick, which prevents damage from being done. Another important thing is use valyrie to reach a destination quicker. If you're trying to make it in time for a team fight, spam valyrie if you have the mana pool for this. A second is the difference between a kill and a dead teammate. Opportunity for kills always appear in high or low elo, take advantage of the opportunity. The only downside to using valykrie to get to teamfights are; being ganked and losing mana. Make sure you have manapool for this action, and pay attention to the map and surroundings.

The armor reduction stacks and lasts 2 seconds. Cost 60/70/80/90/100 Mana Range 600[/number] [title]Explanation:[/title] Corki's most unnoticed spell, Gatling Gun. This spell is very effective in laning phase and gives you a very high advantage. In any one on one situation, comboing Gatling Gun with Phosphorus Bomb will give you the sure advantage against all attack damage carry champions. Gatling gun is a physical spell, which goes through Sivir's spell shield and Banshee's Veil. [title][img=skills/corki/r.png] R: Missile Barrage[/title] [number]Corki fires a missile towards his targeted location that will collide with the first enemy it hits. Each missile deals 120/190/260 (0.3 + ) area magic damage. Corki stores one missile every seconds up to 7 missiles at any given time. Every 4th missile will be a Big One, dealing 60% extra damage. Cost 30/35/40 Mana Cost Range 25000 [/number] [title]Explanation:[/title] Corki's bread and butter, Missle Barrage is used for; poking,harassment, and farming This spell is great in all aspects and shines when battles are in a draw, while pushing. Use this spell to active you sheen or trintiy force. When pushing, it is also viable to use either Missile Barrage or Phosphorus Bomb activate the Sheen. Use your judgement, to choose between the spells. If you're low on missiles, it may be the better decision to use Phosphorus bomb instead. Remember to use Missile Barrage to check brushes aswell. If you're in a situation, where you want to take less risk, use your Missile Barrage to check brushes instead of Phosphorus bomb because of the range difference. Every fourth missile does much more significant damage and has a bigger Area of effect. Landing Missiles is the key factor to winning a team fight and pushing for towers. Use this spell to harass opponents at tower and weaken them, an opportunity to tower diving may appear. With the item build listed above, you're able to spam spells without going low on mana. Baron and dragon's are essential to winning games. If you're fighting over dragon, or attempting to stop dragon- stay far and harass before engaging. With good timing and possibly luck, you may steal dragon due to the lack of skill the opposing jungler has. Missile Barrage also has a slight Area of Effect depending on the size of the missile, hitting a target that is close to another target will deal damage to both opponents. You may be able to pick off low HP opponents by hitting a high HP opponent that is close. Use your missiles to farm jungle creeps and clear waves. If you're intending to buy, blow your missiles to clear the wave and push the lane.

[center][img=custom/reginald_corki/skills.jpg][/center] [title]Explanation:[/title] I max Phosphorus Bomb first because thats my main tool of harassment. I try to pressure my opponents by landing Phosphorus Bombs on the enemy champion, while also landing the spell on the creeps.

[title]Starting Items:[/title] [img=items/sapphire-crystal.png][img=items/health-potion2.png] OR [img=items/cloth-armor.png][img=items/health-potion5.png] [title]Explanation:[/title] Starting items are essential and knowing what to buy is a step to success. Buying items to counter opponents is important to winning your lane. I would start with Mana Crystal and two potions, if I laned against weak opponents such as Morgana,Sivir and Teemo. Buying cloth armor and 5 potions is when you lane against champions like Pantheon,Twisted Fate, Ashe, Kennen and Tristana.

Before buying, always spam your spells to push your lane. Pushing the lane serves many purposes. Using your time efficiently is a key factor in winning. Pushing the lane sends creeps to the enemy tower, making your opponents miss last hits and possibly experience if they were absent. By the time you're back, they wave should be either balanced between the river or running towards your tower. [center] [highlight]Farming efficiently:[/highlight] [own3d]67475[/own3d] [/center]

You're usually going to solo middle lane as corki, always try to farm wraiths and jungle creeps. You usually start jungling at the start of level 6. Maximizing your farm is very important on any carry champion. In Corki's case, he has the perfect tools to farming fast and efficiently. With a Phosphorus bomb and a Missile, you're able to clear wratihs with two spells. A great tactic before going back to base is to nuke down the remaining wave in lane, valkyrie over to wraiths and combo a phosphorus bomb and a missile. Every creep counts, this will all add up to your carrying power late game! Farm it all, take it all! Take everything!

Corki has two phases of team fighting; poking and auto attacking. As a high tier corki player, you must learn to differentiate the situations.From my experience, you usually start with long range Missiles to weaken the opponents before entering with your right click attacks. In very little situations will you ever valkyrie towards enemies in a team fight. Only Valkyrie to chase low HP enemies, otherwise save the Valykrie as an escape. Using Valkyrie defensively in team fights is better 99% of the time. In my opinion, you should always spam your missiles at the beginning and aim to hit multiple targets with AoE, make sure to use phosphorus bomb aswell. Make sure not to over extend and be initiated on. Playing the carry role, you should never get caught. In most cases, you should focus the closest target and if 5 players run towards you and attempt for an initiation, simply kite until an opportunity presents to focus the closest target without being put in danger. When against champions like warwick,taric, or sion- be careful when harassing. If the opponent attempts to stun you, valkyrie away as the particle travels towards you. Being stunned far back behind your teammates is much better than being stunned on front. Remember, it is possible to valkyrie and negate warwick ultimate with good timing.
