Corki is one of my favorite champs in the game, he's one of the best blind picks because he's really underrated due to his weak early game and hard laning phase.

Item Build Description

Additional information on the items

Start

1. Long SwordLong Sword the best starting item for corki for his damage.

First Back

1. Tear of the GoddessTear of the Goddess you need to get this item early for mana, you need this for your core item.

Boots

1. Mercury's TreadsMercury's Treads defensive boots, huge ap or many cc enemy team.

2. [ninja tabi] - defensive boots, huge ad team or many auto attackers.

Upgrade

1. Teleport EnchantTeleport Enchant the only enchant you'll need, teleport for roams of splitpush.

Core

1. ManamuneManamune the highest dmg item for corki when fully stacked ( MuramanaMuramana ) and it gives you manaaaa.

2. Trinity ForceTrinity Force mana, spellblade, attack speed and damage, one of the core items for your corki... you can easily proc spellblade by using your [corki:ult] then auto attack.

3. Infinity EdgeInfinity Edge all marksman uses this item, crits and high dmg this will be your second highest dmg item.

4. Rapid FirecannonRapid Firecannon good for marksmen of course, range, crits, attack speed and the bonus dmg when passive is up.

Choose Magic Penetration Items

1. Infinity OrbInfinity Orb corki's basic attacks is converted into magic damage so you need magic penetration and this item gives you +15 magic penetration, it's passive is also good if you bring down your enemies into 35% health because it crits.

2. MorellonomiconMorellonomicon it's like infinity orb but it's passive is useless and it's only worth buying if you really need antihealing for 3-4 enemies, don't buy if you need mortal reminder.

3. Void StaffVoid Staff like the orbs I mentioned, but gives you 40% magic penetration = 15.2 magic penetration, it gives you some ability power too and it's just good if enemy is stacking mr.

Runes

1. Fleet footwork - this is not the best keystone for him but it's really useful for CorkiCorki because you need this for your laning phase and CorkiCorki 's laning phase is hard. (Swap to conqueror if you think you can handle lane and be strong late)

2. Triumph - sustain rune, deal bonus dmg to low health, swap to Gathering Storm if you want to scale.

3. Conditioning - only this and Hunter Titan are viable runes for CorkiCorki in this tree, this gives you 8 armor and magic resistance after 5 mins go swap to Hunter Titan if you need tenacity because enemy team many cc.

4. Mastermind - this is the best inspiration rune for CorkiCorki giving you additional damage to epic monsters and turrets plus additional gold and CorkiCorki focuses on roams, splitpush and objectives with Hextech MunitionsHextech Munitions so this is the best for CorkiCorki for real, I tested all runes in this tree and this is the best if you're playing right.

This runepage is not really good but I'm currently using it because I have no other choice but I'm testing other kinds and I'll make sure to update this one.

Corki

Abilities

ABILITIES

Hextech MunitionsHextech Munitions - turns your basic attack into magic damage which is really unique but the active is the key to carry the game, use it for roams, teamfights and cancels other abilites from enemy champions.

Phosphorous BombPhosphorous Bomb - the ability you use to poke your enemy laner, you max this first.

ValkyrieValkyrie - the ability you use to chase or to escape from enemies, you max this the last.

Gatling GunGatling Gun - the ability to reduce your enemies' armor and magic resistance, you max this second.

Missile BarrageMissile Barrage - of couse you max this first before your other abilites, it's really good when you use it then auto attack to proc the spellblade from trinity force, you spam it too.

Corki

Thank you

Thank you for reading this guide,I'm still trying to get the best runes and items for CorkiCorki and I'm near... Spells are all good, Start, first back, boots, enchant, core, and magic penetration for the items are good except for the last items... The runes are not good though

THERE IS NO REALLY BEST BUILD THAT YOU CAN BUILD EVERY GAME BECAUSE IT REALLY DEPENDS ON THE ENEMY TEAM BUT I'M TRYING TO MAKE THINGS EASIER AND MAKING YOUR CHOICES SMALL
