DEVTOME.COM HOSTING COSTS HAVE BEGUN TO EXCEED 115$ MONTHLY. THE ADMINISTRATION IS NO LONGER ABLE TO HANDLE THE COST WITHOUT ASSISTANCE DUE TO THE RISING COST. THIS HAS BEEN OCCURRING FOR ALMOST A YEAR, BUT WE HAVE BEEN HANDLING IT FROM OUR OWN POCKETS. HOWEVER, WITH LITERALLY NO DONATIONS FOR THE PAST 2+ YEARS IT HAS DEPLETED THE BUDGET IN SHORT ORDER WITH THE INCREASE IN ACTIVITY ON THE SITE IN THE PAST 6 MONTHS. OUR CPU USAGE HAS BECOME TOO HIGH TO REMAIN ON A REASONABLE COSTING PLAN THAT WE COULD MAINTAIN. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO SUPPORT THE DEVTOME PROJECT AND KEEP THE SITE UP/ALIVE PLEASE DONATE (EVEN IF ITS A SATOSHI) TO OUR DEVCOIN 1M4PCuMXvpWX6LHPkBEf3LJ2z1boZv4EQa OR OUR BTC WALLET 16eqEcqfw4zHUh2znvMcmRzGVwCn7CJLxR TO ALLOW US TO AFFORD THE HOSTING.

THE DEVCOIN AND DEVTOME PROJECTS ARE BOTH VERY IMPORTANT TO THE COMMUNITY. PLEASE CONTRIBUTE TO ITS FURTHER SUCCESS FOR ANOTHER 5 OR MORE YEARS!

Sivir AD Carry guide

/!\ Due to the latest patch this article is now outdated and needs a rework /!\

This is a guide for a character in League of Legends.


Sivir the battle Mistress.

Sivir is an AD carry specialized in pushing and chasing.

PROS/CONS

Pros

  • High DPS output.
  • Good duelist.
  • Good at chasing.

Cons

  • No CC.
  • Squishy.
  • No escape.

Summoner spells

  • Barrier: Standard on an AD carry.
  • flash: Sivir has no escape so flash in even more mandatory.

Skills

  • Fleet of Foot (passive): Sivir gains bonus movement speed when she hits an enemy hero either with skill or auto attack as follows: (30/35/40/45/50).It last for 2 seconds.

A very good skill to chase and a pretty good one to hit and run too. Sivir is limited on this part because of her natural range being low

  • Boomerang Blade (Q): Sivir throws her weapon then it come back dealing physical damages possibly twice in its path as follows: (25/45/65/85/105 +70/80/90/100/110 AD +50% AP). Each subsequent hit will do 15% reduced damage. There is a minimal damage treshold of 40% as follows:( 10/18/26/34/42 +28/32/36/40/44 % AD +20% AP). Range: 1075 Cooldown: 9. Cost: (60/70/80/90/100 mana).

So to explain myself better: against a unique target you will have the possibility to strike it twice as the boomerang return to you. You will do an initial damage of 100% then 90% of this. The damage will be minored by 10% for every instance to a minimal threshold of 40% the initial damage. As you can see the range is pretty high. Boomerang Blade was a bit nerfed as a good Q was almost a lane wining opportunity not so long ago. As it is a skill shot you will need practice.

  • Ricochet (W): The next 3 Auto attack will bounce to closest enemy dealing percentage of Sivir's AD as follows: (50/55/60/65/70% AD+).There is no limit in the number of target it can hits but it will it every target only once. Cooldown: (9/8/7/6/5). Cost: 60 mana.

This one was remade and I don't feel it has a nerf. The target number is unlimited but the range between them to apply the ricochet must be pretty narrow. Ricochet also synergize with R as we will see.

  • Spell Shield (E): Sivir shield herself negating the next incoming skill. It last for 1.5 seconds if Sivir blocks a skill with this ability she will also gains mana as follows: (80/95/110/125/140 bonus mana). Cooldown: (22/19/16/13/10). Cost: 0.

It was remade too. It doesn't last for long but it has no cost now. So you won't waste your precious mana if you miss a skillshot. You have to know every hero to practice this skill well. This + boomerang

  • On The Hunt (R) (Ultimate): Passive: Sivir gains attack speed during Ricochet as follows: (40/60/80% AD). Active Sivir casts an AOE buff around her for her teammates empowering them for 8 seconds as follows: (+60 ms for 2/3/4 seconds to +20% after this). Range: 1000. Cooldown: (120/100/80). Cost: 0.

Awww the nerf. It was awesome in team fights as it provided bonus AS for the whole crew. Now it's only a bonus movement speed. It's still good but less powerful.

Masteries

On the offensive tree you go for Frenzy as you will have a decent amount of %crit from items. Devastating strike is not so good but you still need to reach Havoc.

On the defensive tree you take boost MR/ armor and health, you can tweak with Unyielding too.

Runes

The rune page is set as follows:

  • X9 flat AD (marks): In general I take Ad rune for the AD i did the mat but long ago. I will have to review this. Flat arpen runes will work too.
  • x9 flat armor (seals): Nc.
  • X9 MR per level (glyphs): by default.
  • Quintessences: As Quints you can take flat AD, Arpen or even life steal or MS.

Build

As starting items: Doran's Blade +1 Hp pot. Then you buy a Bf blade on your first trip back. I don't really like Bloodthirster on Sivir as she's is super squishy. As a standard I prefer to enforce my advantage than compensate my weakness. I usually go with a super agressive Infinity Edge + Statikk Shiv. Anyway Bloodthirster is still standard. So as a core: Berserkers' boots + Bloodthirster.

Your support

Supports with some CC and buff will work best with Sivir. Such as: Nami Lulu Tresh.

Matchup

Favorable

In general everyone with some skill shots will be countered easy by Sivir.

  • Caitlyn: You can counter every single skill of her with your E. Her trap is a benediction to refill your mana.
  • Jinx
  • Graves

Unfavorable

In general everyone with a gap closer or an entrapment will counter Sivir

  • Vayne: She can dash to you stun then DPS you to death.
  • Draven
  • Twitch: He will ambush you easily

General guidelines

Sivir will rely on her Q and her E. At least early in the game. Then more and more on auto attack. Focus on farm early you really need that B.F sword fast. Your support has to protect your last hits. Always tell him if he is too passive. When you engage a fight bot always focus the enemy AD. Your Q will decide if you can engage or not. Don't forget to ward with the free trinket. The lower elo you are the less you can rely on your support. You will have to keep an eye on the minimap, your support won't see very incoming ganks.
