As one of the oldest champions in League of Legends, Ashe has been a popular choice among players since the game’s debut. Due to her easy-to-play kit and respectable strength, the Frost Archer has been the first choice for many players learning the ADC role.
Lethal Tempo: Ashe is, for the most part, all about attack speed. The champion excels when she is able to wear her enemies down with basic attacks at a rapid pace. Given Ashe’s passive ability that will cause her basic attacks to slow enemies, this effect is going to greatly increase the champion’s ability to chase down and eliminate enemy champions.
Presence Of Mind: This rune is important for the majority of mana-based ADC champions. Due to their kit focusing on basic attacks, they will often have smaller mana pools than other champions. Since Ashe’s abilities are extremely useful for catching opponents and clearing minion waves, taking Presence Of Mind is a good choice.
Legend: Alacrity: Attack speed is an import stat for Ashe and one that actively needs to be increased when building for the champion. Legend: Alacrity will allow Ashe to earn Legend stacks for taking down enemy minion champions or monsters. Once she has built sufficient stacks, Ashe will receive bonus attack speed.
Coup De Grace: Ashe has an extremely high chase potential due to her abilities and basic attacks slowing enemies as they take damage. A great rune to pair with these abilities is Coup De Grace.
Magical Footwear: One of Ashe’s biggest vices is her mobility. Ashe needs to acquire movement speed items later in the game to have a decent chance at evading attacking enemies.
Approach Velocity: Given that Ashe has many ways to slow her enemies, Approach Velocity is a must-have rune. This rune will allow Ashe to gain a movement speed increase towards enemies that she has slowed, which will help her chase down and eliminate champions with ease.
Bonuses: +10-percent attack speed, +9 adaptive force, +6 armor
Starting items Doran’s Blade
The easy choice for ADC champions, Doran’s Blade offers Ashe damage, health, and life steal that will greatly increase her success early in lane. The life steal offered by the Doran’s Blade means that Ashe can heal back some health by just farming in the lane.
Another way for Ashe to heal from damage, health potions restore 150 health over 15 seconds. Being in the bottom lane against two enemy champions, Ashe is likely to take damage from one of them while farming.
Core items Blade of the Ruined King
The perfect item for Ashe, Blade of the Ruined King offers not only impressive stat increases but also highly effective abilities that complement the champion’s kit.
One of the most well-known and commonly used attack damage items, Infinity Edge boasts not only 80 additional attack damage but also a 25-percent critical strike chance increase.
An item that boosts many of Ashe’s most important stats, Runaan’s Hurricane adds 40 percent attack speed, 25 percent critical strike chance, and nine percent movement speed.
