Guide

Early:

Buy Cloth ArmorCloth Armor for defense along with AftershockAftershock and WeaknessWeakness . Your early game armor is gonna be one of the highest in the match, over 110 armor at least. Enough to mitigate damage from any ADC. Be quite aggressive at level 2 and engage when the time presents itself. To get more chance of engage, let the enemy push to your tower and be aggressive to your heart's content. If you bring MastermindMastermind in your rune, you can give good damage to towers and jungle objectives, helping your jungle in the process.

Mid:

You should have finished your Randuin's OmenRanduin's Omen and get Bramble VestBramble Vest for the reflective damage in the middle of a team fight. Your Randuin's OmenRanduin's Omen will greatly increase your survivability. Once you finished your ThornmailThornmail and Frozen HeartFrozen Heart , you can go in and be as aggressive as you like to be. Make sure you land your abilities CC and make the enemy days a living nightmare. The armor combination from all your core items and AftershockAftershock will make you nearly invincible.

Late:

You should have at least 5 items, including your boot enchantment, and pressure the enemy base. In this stage, Zeke's ConvergenceZeke's Convergence is extremely useful if your team consists of 60 percent AD champions. The slow is amazing and the bonus AD for your team is great to bring any team fights in your favor. You should have nearly 600 armor and could stay in a prolonged period in any engagement.
