Squishies hate it.
LoL Item Guide: Duskblade
The League of Legends Item Guide series continues today with Duskblade of Draktharr. You look in the item shop and almost have an epileptic fit? All the bonuses, Legendaries, Mythics, you can't keep track anymore? You just want to go back to the old days when Lee Sin could still buy Sightstone? It's alright, we have prepared something: We take a closer look at Duskblade. What can the assassin mythic item do, on whom does it make the most sense and why is Duskblade so strong? Answers to these questions can be found in our item guide.
Of course, you don't have to be an assassin main to enjoy our item guides. There is also intel for the mid lane, jungle and top lane to read through and get started:
Dusblade of Draktharr, or simply Duskblade, is an easy and solid option for assassins in season 11. Basically you just buy Longswords on your building path to get Serrated Dirk and Caulfield's Warhammer. Therefore it's easy but not very flexible when it comes to adapting.
Duskblade of Draktharr Stats:
- Cost: 3200 Gold
- + 60 AD
- + 20 Ability Haste
- + 18 Lethality (11.2 - 18 (based on level) Armor Penetration)
- Gold efficiency without passive: 85,23%
85% isn't too good of a value. But as every mythic item, Dusklbade has some great passives. So let's get straight to the point, where it get's dangerous for every squishy in the opposing team.

LoL Item Guide: Duskblade
For every legendary item you will gain 5 Ability Haste. That's the first part. Now to the more interesting one. The Item's passive is called "Nightstalker". It deals an on-hit bonus of 65 AD (+25% bonus AD) and slows the enemy hit for 0.25 seconds by 99%. The Cooldown resets when you make a kill or participate in one within 3 seconds. If you can achieve that, you will also become invisible for 1.5 seconds.

Champions who synergize with Duskblade
Duskblade fits best with AD-assassins who tend to do burst down their enemies within seconds. So basically any AD-Assassin in the mid lane or in the jungle - like Zed, Qiyana, Kha´Zix or Talon. An exception of that stereotype is Varus. The ADC is builded poke heavy and goes full lethality. Hence Duskblade is his go-to mythic item. Also the invisiblity is super fun on Varus and can be used quite well to escape or flank.
Besides Prowler's Claw, Duskblade is definitely your go-to mythic on assassins who are already very mobile and have an on target spell, e.g Zed with his R. It is a brilliant power spike that you should definitely play around. Use the impact and actively roam to get quick kills and move you and your team forward. Do not let your opponents scale under any circumstances.
