The only reason you can go with first pick, is because no matter who counters him will able to win in lane. Although not much people use him (especially in ranked) these days, I tend to use him very often. He is probably my main, since I love to use champs who don't use mana such as , , , etc and I'm sure most of you agree since you are able to spam pots and sustain in lane.
Ok, let's get to the point now. You want to mastertop? It's quite simple. First of all you must farm up with your w or autoattacks until level 2 or 3 which ever you prefer. But I like to go aggressive starting from level 2 since I get my then so I can just dash in, then dash out. These types of harass is immensely scary, since it does massive damage. But sometimes people like to get at level 3. That is fine too as long as you can play aggressive after getting your . Make sure you play safe and passive though. I also like to get fort pot and 3 hp pots since has a and his to dash out. Or sometimes you can even 2v1 which I LOVE about. After that you keep want to push a little. If your enemy decides to back, push the lane to the turret and back too.
Get a early(if possible) and go to your lane. Make sure you get your pots and wards if possible. But I don't recommend getting more pots after level 6 because of how powerful your ult can be. Until level 6 farm while poking your enemy. Use the combo, , , , then through him to get out. This combo will just make them pussy out! This is what we officially call, winning your lane! I am always able to win my lane and get fed.
Also helping your team is essential. But be cautious when their jungler is tanky and has a lot of CC (., . etc.). Sometimes I like to dive when the enemy is below half hp with my ult:
- Either -> -> -> ->
- OR and -> -> -> etc. But be careful if he has a lot of CC such as .
What I like to build is a, , , , and or depending on the enemy team. This makes you extremely tanky therefore you will be a good tank in your team. If you are worried that you might not have much ad? Worry no longer just with this build and some ad runes, your ad will reach up to 150+ and your hp will be 5000 and your armor will be 200+ and your MR will be around 100+ with some use of runes.
