Notes You shouldn't need mana potions since you shouldn't be spamming abilities anyways. Stay alive and get your passive built up for stronger heart bombs.

Pick one depending on match-up

Notes Odysseus' Bow is for farming and Ichival is for boxing. Depending on your opponent, you may opt for Ichival for more pressure in lane, but Odysseus' Bow is the cheaper and better item for farming.

Replace boots with one of these options

Notes Sell boots when you can afford Elixir of Speed and at least a tier 2 item. Take your pick from all of these, but try to choose based on their team composition.
If you're getting hard dove, get Mantle of Discord
If they have a lot of physical divers, Berserker's is nice and it caps you on your penetration.
Shogun's Kusari is good if they have a lot of magical damage and thorns messing you up.
Heartseeker is just more damage, but a viable pick if you're not dying on cooldown.
