Gameplay and Strategy
Evelynn is a very powerful champion and she can be played in multiple ways, but the most effective gameplay for here are; Attack Damage Top Laner, Ability Power Mid Laner and Jungler. On this part of the article we will be discussing these three gameplay and how to fully utilize her role to win in the field of justice.
Attack Damage Top Laner
Evelynn excels on dueling, and on this particular role, it is important to understand that her abilities scale pretty high in terms of attack damage. Her E (Ravage) skill is equivalent to 2 auto-attacks meaning, on-hit effect applies. This mechanic for Evelynn provides her with incredible damage and attack speed. The most recommended build for late game Attack Damage Evelynn is to go for Trinity Force, Blade of the Ruined King and Infinity Edge. Not to mention that her Q (Hateful Spike) allows her to constantly harass enemies within her range and her W (Dark Frenzy) provides her with the mobility to either engage an enemy champion or simply escape enemy team ganks. And her passive (Shadow Walk) provides her with mana sustain and higher chance of survivability.
Ability Power Mid Laner
Evelynn is a skill spammer and she can certainly harass enemy champion especially during the laning period. On this particular role, you need to be aware that her abilities scale really well on ability power and the cooldown for her skills are literally her source of strength. Her E (Ravage) skill scales 100% when maxed which makes her burst so powerful and not to mention the continuous stinging Q (Hateful Spike) that can melt down an enemy champion's Health Power (HP). Her mobility also allows her to go undetected and target the squishy one's and then make a run for it with her W (Dark Frenzy), in which most often than not, let's her get away. The most recommended items for this build are Lichbane, Rabadon's Deathcap and Archangel's Staff.
Evelynn is a hybrid champion, that means that all of her skills scale on both ability power and attack damage. This certainly makes Evelynn a unique champion with a very particular skill set. A jungler has a lot of responsibilities, she has to take care of objectives like getting the Dragon buff, ganking, assisting tower takedown, etc. while still getting levels and gold. This certainly increases her already high difficulty rating. In order to be an effective and efficient Evelynn Jungler, you would need to invest on runes that synergizes with her strong points and masteries to cater for her jungler needs. The most recommended build for her as a jungler are either; Skirmisher's Devourer or Runeglaive. The rest of the items depend whether you'll fully invest on attack damage or ability power.
