Early game you play a little more normally, kinda behind the team, tossing your scythe and killing minions with your 3, or silencing enemies with your 3. Getting a few kills normally. Whether you buy beads or aegis first is up to you. This is an arena build btw.
The boots are to give you slight speed superiority early game, basically you're not a sitting duck, but you're still a duck.
The Mage's Cloak gives a little health and protection but is there for the absorption of hard crowd control, you will need it more and more. Keep your eye on the status of this the whole game.
The winged blade gives a little speed boost, more health too, but is there to provide immunity to slows. Watch this with Mage's cloak, know if you can risk things before you do it. Slow immunity is actually not too needed, you can replace winged blade with quin sais as the last item.
The mask is for the speed boost, to help put you above the speed most people will have. It's worth it, and entirely necessary.
Elixir of power first, usually paired with power buff as your attack speed is decent already.
If it's one of those games where you got funds for another elixir, defense afterwards, power buff usually has over a minute left.
Hastened katana is so you don't get slowed while hitting people. Pretty necessary.
The last bow is so that when you get into the action, you stack movement speed, which really does come in handy. Also a nice attack speed boost.
Minion kills heal you a little (any kills do), your scythe throw is extremely useful for healing, 3 is great for silencing attacks (defending against them). With your speed it usually takes teamwork for them to trap and kill you. If chasing, you're free to break off if the team comes to the rescue, circle around and have them chase you, then resume your kill after your abilities have cooled down. In short, you're too weak and squishy to do much on your own, so you're kinda on the sidelines hitting your 1, 2, and 3, occasionally the 4. Looking for people to do damage to (not kill) most of the time, team fights to just sorta sway the favor in. Teammates in trouble that need saving, enemies running back on low hp where you can get them and not die (or die if it's worth it). As you get more items, you become pretty much able to seize every opportunity, and there's usually a lot. You rely on your abilities' damage until you have all items then can sorta do some damage and start getting a bit more in there, til then, there's plenty of kills to be had, or teammates to help. Ult doesn't have to be for a kill, nor for the damage (especially with your low power), use it as a stun to save an ally from someone pursuing them (usually silence them right after and toss the scythe and maybe your allies turn around and kill em), or uses it to stun an enemy that's on the front lines, it'll bring attention to them if your teammates are nearby, often they get away but not without low health, which is where your speed and evasive maneuvers come in handy making sure they don't make it back to base. You're fast enough to evade most situations, just don't be stupid. Combine the out-of-fountain boost with the 2 boost towards a low health ally and you just fly across the stage.
Enemies that jump over the wall to get into base, if you can before the fountain heals them, you can kill them in there (deep in the fountain), and with aegis, make it out alive and with about half health. Don't steal kills on purpose, don't let them get away because you didn't wanna steal. Often the whole team tries to chase you (as it's hard to NOT troll with this build), try to make use of this and lead them deep into your territory for allies to jump in on, then turn around and help out. People do get mad sometimes, where you'll win and be the top score on both teams, and still get called trash. It's a bit unavoidable as when someone gets mad and starts targeting you specifically, logically it's in your best interest to focus more on them, because otherwise they'll be sure to catch you off guard. Which is when it really starts to troll them because they're usually stronger, and you gotta play like a piranha/shark and swoop by getting all these nicks and scythe throws in until they're low enough health for you to take head on (or where someone else on your team jumps in on them).
