READ QUICKLY LOL

ITEMIZATION
GET THE SAID ITEMS FOR EARLY, MID AND LATE GAME. WE DON'T GET VANGUARD OR SANGE & YASHA BECAUSE THOSE ITEMS SUCK. WHY GET AN ITEM THAT MAKES YOU TANK WHEN YOU'RE NOT A TANK? WHY GET AN ITEM THAT HAS A 15% CHANCE TO SLOW WHEN YOU CAN GET A BETTER ITEM THAT GIVES YOU A 100% CHANCE TO SLOW? WHEN YOU'RE DONE THE REQUIRED ITEMS, BUILD WHATEVER YOU WANT FROM THE SITUATIONAL SECTION! I SUGGEST BUTTERFLY, ASSAULT CUIRASS AND DIVINE RAPIER! IF YOU RUN OUT OF ITEM SLOTS, SELL TREADS FOR TRAVEL BOOTS AND SELL THE YASHA, YOU ONLY NEED THE YASHA MID GAME FOR MOVE AND ATTACK SPEED

SKILL BUILD
IN THE EARLY GAME, BURST DAMAGE IS KING. SO MAX OUT DARK PACT (Q) AND POUNCE (W) FIRST WHILE ONLY TAKING A POINT IN ESSENCE SHIFT (E) AND YOUR ULT (R). THE REASON WE MAX Q BEFORE W IS BECAUSE W IS FINNICKY AND HARDER TO LAND. Q CAN ALSO HELP YOU CLEAR OUT JUNGLE CAMPS REALLY FAST.

HOW SLARK'S ULT WORKS
MOST PEOPLE DON'T KNOW HOW IT WORKS BECAUSE IT'S A LONG *** TOOLTIP. YOU GET BONUS MOVEMENT SPEED AND HEALTH REGEN WHEN THE ENEMY DOES NOT HAVE VISION OF YOU. THIS IS A GREAT WAY TO KNOW IF WARDS ARE NEARBY! IT ALSO WORKS IN CONJUNCTION WITH YOUR ULT ACTIVE! USE IT BEFORE THE FIGHT TO CATCH UP OR USE IT DURING THE FIGHT FOR SOME CRAZY REGEN!

HOW TO PLAY SLARK
FARM UNTIL LEVEL 6, THEN GANK UNTIL THE TEAMFIGHTING PHASE. DURING TEAMFIGHTS, YOU WANT TO BE THE LAST PERSON IN THE FIGHT. WAIT UNTIL THEIR TANK/SUPPORTS HAVE BLOWN A COUPLE SPELLS AND THEN GO ATTACK THE TANKIEST PERSON ON THE OTHER TEAM. WHY? BECAUSE THEN YOU HAVE WAY MORE STATS TO STEAL!

USING YOUR SKILLS
USE DARK PACT TO REMOVE DEBUFFS.
POUNCING DESTROYS TREES. GETTING GANKED? JUMP INTO A GROUP OF TREES AND TP OUT
ESSENCE SHIFT CAN STEAL UP TO 141 AGILITY. USE IT TO TAKE DOWN TOWERS EXTREMELY QUICKLY!
