Let me start this guide off by saying that I am not a big MOBA player. I spend more time playing Third/First Person Shooters and therefore this guide is built around and tailored to that experience. This therefore means that it will rely on accuracy and skill shooting.
In the end, the goal of this build is to maximize Attack Speed and Movement Speed, and using a heavy offense as a defense. The total cost for this build is 13595 not including potions/abilities. (Speaking of Abilities. I don't use them myself. Not that I'm not saying DON'T use them, just that I do not.) In the end result, with full stacks from the Devourer's Gloves and Heartseeker you will have an AP/ATK/AD of 165. The final resulting Attack Speed will be 1.84 before using Vengeful Assault, and 2.5 after. Your final Movement Speed will be 515 out of combat and 489 in combat.
Item Guide Side note: The Warrior Tabi can be purchased instead of Boots of Celerity but will raise the cost slightly and reduce your final Movement Speed. The trade off however is slightly increased AP/ATK/AD to 195 and an extra 6% Attack Speed.
A Key Note To This Build: It is an extremely speed intensive build, and therefore in some cases, using Suppress The Insolent to slow your target, then running in and snaring them with Transgressors Fate so you can use Vengeful Assault to unload on a standstill target is a possible tactic, especially on melee users.
As mentioned in the Introduction this is a guide based around moving and shooting fast. Therefore the first purchase is the Boots of Celerity. This gives you an already boost to 21% increased Movement Speed. You'll also want an HP Potion to go along with that, unless you're running center lane, then take an MP potion and use the tower for defense if you have HP issues. To support your fast speed, you will also start off with Vengeful Assault as the first skill you level up, then grabbing the other two, and focusing on leveling it to max by level 11.
Expect to be staying in the lane till at least level 5. After that, make a trip back and buy Devourer's Gloves as high as you can to get some Power to match that speed. This will also start your defenses up in the form of Lifesteal. The AP/ATK/AD will also rack up as you get kills once the gloves are maxed out.
Next is Fatalis. It adds more Movement Speed, Attack Speed, and a 25% cooldown reduction to your abilities. This makes it possible to abuse the Vengeful Assault skill, but can be mana intensive. Expect to be using that speed to run back from spawn a lot.
By this point, if you're not lane swapping, expect to be soon. The increased speed, and final rank of Boots of Celerity will help out on this, and allow assassinations quite easily, especially with a run in, snare, attack speed, vanish based tactic. Heartseeker will improve your Movement Speed and Power, and as long as you don't die.
Following next with Qin's Blades will push your Power even higher as will as boost your attack speed, while giving a 35% chance to do extra damage on basic attack. See the relevance of attacking constantly at a speed of 2.5 now? Good.
The final item, Soul Eater, is to add HP, and more Lifesteal above the already attained Lifesteal, as well as increase your Attack Speed just slightly more.
