    indeed ..nashor's tooth is a very good item for diana bcs of her passive...well,I would build crystall scepter instead of deathcap cuz diana doesn't need that much ap...i would do that in my opinion :)

    This Guide has been updated as of patch 4.5 with LoLPro heavenTime as its new author.

    I think Abyssal Scepter is a bit useless. Lich Bane will add so much more damage then the Abyssal Scepter but then again if they have a fed APC you will need some magic resist but i will always buy Lich Bane i find it a lot better then Abyssal Scepter.

    You don't really see LichBane too much on Diana, but in the instances that I've seen it it has been quite powerful. I personally don't like it though. Abyssal gives you resists, which is quite important for jungle Diana as she is more of an 'in your face' character and preferably needs to soak up a lot of punishment. It also reduces the MR of everyone around her, which benefits your team's DPS as well as your own.

    In my experience, Diana plays a the role of a strong initiator. So, she plays kind of like a jungle Jax would where he still needs damage, but due to being the teams initiator, he has to build resists and health, too. As you said, she is pretty in your face, so she should be optimized for that. An in your face damage dealer needs to advantage of as many free stats as they can so that they can afford to build defensive items. When I play Diana, I rush Spectral Wraith and the next item I get is Nashor's Tooth. Everyone knows why this is a good item on her, but to keep things simply, this fully abuses her passive giving her on hit magic damage and increased attack speed. Since AP itemization gives Diana access to both Magic Resist and Armour, the clear choices are Abyssal Sceptre and Zhonya's. As an initiator, having all of these resists and a ton of effective health from her shield (which she is guaranteed to get since she's starting a majority of the fights) make her extremely durable, despite not building any health or sustain. This leaves us with one more item slot. If the enemy team has a lot of armor iceborn gauntlet is a really strong item as it gives Diana mana (which she desperately needs), armor, and max cdr (assuming you have spectral wraith and nashor's). Since it is a sheen item, it increases Diana's burst dramatically, while also providing a lot of utility. If you need magic resist, wit's end is a good damage item while spirit visage is a good defensive item, giving you max cdr and more effective health. Assuming you need to sell your spectral wraith since it is really late into the game, GA or Warmog's are both really good options. With GA, you can rush the carry since you have an obnoxious amount of effective health. Combine that with Zhonya's and you are going to be extremely hard to kill. With Warmog's you are still much more durable, but you are playing more of a tank role by staying in the middle of the fight. Having 3k health and a ton of resist makes you are force to reckon with since you can't really be focused, but you are still doing absurd amounts of damage. So, final build would be:

    Spectral Wraith, Sorcerer's Shoes, Nashor's Tooth, Abyssal and Zhonya's (get whichever one is more relevant first), and Iceborn. Selling Spectral Wraith for GA late game if diving, or swap it for Warmog's if tanking. 

    As a final note, one alternative build that I found interesting was Feral Flare, Wit's End, Merc Treads, Sunfire Cape, Spirit Visage, and Iceborn Gauntlet. This build has an obnoxious amount of sustain but has severe mana problems. Regardless, it's a lot of fun, so check it out if you want.

    I really don't understand why you won't take leachbane on Diana since this item isn't really hard to make (Blasting Wand can be made into Abyssal Scepter, Leachbane or Rabandon depending of the opponent team or you snowballing) and it had so much burst to her. You will be able to make at least two proc, or three if you did well. This item give her so much burst and DPS, making the need for an early rabadon useless. It goes really well with the jungle low gold environnement.

  • #102 dzertus

    Update for Jungle routes after the patch? :3

  • #101 ivanbss

    The video is for diana MID not jungle.

  • #100 SpartanAK

    With the new item cost what do you think about starting(600 less gold cost):

    Kage Pick > Spirit of the Spectral Wrath > Athene's Holy Grail

    Putting you at 29% CDR early, allowing a much higher likelihood of getting off your combo twice in a gank. Also, is the Orb dmg single-target?  Regardless, the 20% spell vamp makes you more deceptively tanky than you were already even if it's not Diana's greatest stat.

  • #99 Hypage

    Iceborn Gauntlet feels like a really good item on diana, what you think about it ?

  • #98 CAllOverUrTs

    I usually mid diana over jungle. Just curious but why no Lich Bane with Diana, and maybe a revolver for sustain? LMK what you think

  • #97 Alphascrub

    Might get completely told to stfu here but, twin shadow has help me out with Diana for mid game ap/mr with a great slowing effect. It pretty much guarantees you land your w + q + r + r combo.  

  • #95 crazed

    Riot killed Diana in the junlge... She's just so overnerfed god dammit.

    She may clear fast, but then what? She's crazy mana hungry, constantly needs blue and since the nerfs needs the gold more than ever. There's just no point in playing her, as much as I like her.

  • #92 gayvulture

    Yes please get someone to properly fix this guide especially with her new nerf update that just happened today, make the build have more sustain and proper use of items. I am starting to lose hope in LoLPro now :/ Solomid seems like the only viable options to get confident guides.

  • #93 Aldrahill

    Have to agree with that, there's barely any site maintenance...

    And what was with, when the Season 3 patch began, all the masteries being messed up? That's so stupid, just make it so they have to ACTUALLY update the damn guide for it to deserve the updated status.

  • #90 Aldrahill

    No one bringing to light the fact that this guide has you build 2 GP10 items, then don't build them into anything.

    Why the philo stone? Why not upgrade it to the Ancient Golem spirit stone? Just... what's the point, man?

    Quote from RealFateS »

    This guide is probably the least professional I've ever seen. 

     

    1. Don't release the guide until it's finished, hold it in the archives and don't release it to the public

    2. Use correct grammar when writing guides

    3. I've also seen and heard that many guides on here aren't personally written by the people it says they are written by.  Please have integrity when writing these guides.  I don't wanna read 1400 ELO bullshit just because that 1400 ELO kid is friends with someone on Curse.

    So your saying the curse team captain shouldn't be writing the guide for his team? The very team that is training constantly and live streaming matches as they train and therefore are too busy to take time out of their days to write a guide? Yeah you sure are right there! Shame on him for releasing the rune page, masteries spell order and items to buy FOR SHAME! Idiot.

    How is Liandry's Torment on Diana? It adds a bit of survivability and a lot of magic pen, especially with Sorcerer's Shoes and Abyssal Scepter, and the DoT would be good for killing tanks/finishing people who run off during fights.

  • #96 heartmonger

    I have found Liandry's Torment to be amazing on Diana. It needs to be secondary to abyssal scepter or Zhonya's Hourglass though. But 9 times out of 10 I pick it up.
