Author's note

This build is not 100% perfect, I still have a lot to learn about this champion. But I can give some small knowledge I have after playing about 50 games with her with a 60 percent win rate. Hope this little, imperfect guide helps you in some way and you're free to give your suggestions and criticism to me. Thanks!
