Normal push build _ This is quite balanced build. Early push and focus on carry ability later on. _ Early Game: 1-8 _ This is your laning phase, so put set of webs on lane and focus on lasthittng, get your core items and start to push hard. Beware of gang thought, the enemy team is not gonna let your farm, so set of wards to see incoming gang by your support would be pretty handy. _ Mid Game: 8-15 _ Now focus on destroying towers, good way is to find lone lane (best are bot and top) and farm your core extension items. Don't forget to scout with spiders, 'cause enemies are gonna defend hard. If you can't push, then go jungle. _ Late Game: 15-25 This is your time to carry. It isn't such hard after all. Go into battle, turn on BKB and ulti and attack. Don't forget to farm/push when you have time.

Various Tips: Take the Mid Solo. For the early game, it's about 75% Farm and 25% Gank. Runewhore as much as you can. Farm a lot for the first 30 minutes, then focus on pushing. Never over farm. Start pushing once you have BKB and preferably Dagger/Lothars on top of Boots of Travel. Dealing massive amounts of AoE damage in teamfights is what you do. Last but not least...Practice Makes Perfect.
