Writter's Background

Hello Everybody,

Let me introduce myself,

I have 430 games recorded with a 53 % ratio win/loss, mostly on ARENA MODE (around 99 % of my games).

I have with NEMESIS 98 wins and 64 losses (which makes a 60 % ratio win/loss).

This said, I precise here that my build is designed for NEMESIS on the ARENA MODE ! No other mode is covered by this build ;)


Ok so basically what you want with this build is to have high and fast damage with your basic attack. According to this, we will not care about cooldowns.

First, buy Greater Purification (bead rank 3), Sprint (sprint rank 1 is enough) and the first rank of your boots. You want Greater Purification and Sprint because it will allow you in many situations to run for your life, and believe me, it is a must have here. Actually it will also allow you to finish an enemy running away.

Then buy last two ranks of your Ninja Tabi.

You can start now to buy Hastened Fatalis. This one is the whole key of your build. It allows you to continually hit someone even when they run away, mostly when they run away ! You now have + 45 % attack speed and + 28 % movement speed (Ninja Tabi + Hastened Fatalis).

Next item is The Executioner. Physical power, physical penetration, plus you now have + 75 % attack speed.

Last item before crits is Qin's Sais : physical power, 4 % physical damage of your target by hit, and you have reached + 90 % attack speed.

Last two items are Rage and Deathbringer : physical power, around 75-80 % critical chance, very high critical damage. You can now explode mages, assassins and hunters.

As an alternative, if you think that the enemy team has too much crowd controls for you, just buy Magi's Blessing as second item and then follow the BASE build. You will not get Deathbringer, but if you play smartly, you will almost never die.


So ! I guess that this part is ought to be the most exciting ^^ It depends on you !

As a reminder, you are NOT SUPPOSED to initiate team fight ! Just wait for the good moment ;)

You will mostly have to attack people close to death and isolated targets. So enter team fights that have already started and finish gods with your (2), harass runners by reaching them with your (1) or with your Sprint. Don't forget that you can slow an enemy with your (2), this is the second way to use your (2). Either you finish someone a bit far from you with it or you slow him to reach him and kill him with your deadly basic attacks.

If you are fighting with someone or several enemies, always wait to be mid-life to use your (3) because it will heal you as long as they hit you ! You can manage to kill two opponents easily sometimes :) Just remember that your (1) and Sprint are useful to initiate but also to fly away ^^

In terms of positioning, always stay back or push the outer sides ! Don't forget to get the attack buff on the jungle and then attack enemies from behind ! This is a very good way to kill 2-3 peoples in a row.

Finally, your ultimate should, as a good friend of mine said to me, be used quite often. Don't think too much. If you feel that it's the good moment, just go ahead. In worst cases you will not get a kill :) Don't get greedy ;)

My advice is 1) Be really carefull 2) Just gank EM' !!!

That's me :)
