Laning Phase

During the Laning Phase your mission is to farm those items asap. The strength from the bracers make you fairly tanky early game. The boots help you chase down enemies and flee from them plus adding 24 damage (or 48 with ult lvl 1) on to your wallet. Also dont be afraid to buy healing salves here and there. You will be targeted, you will lose life. What you dont want to do is sacrifice xp for health. Just order it. Even if your at 20% health stay in lane until you have items for the xp.

Roaming Phase

You now want to build on your armor and attack speed. You are a Knight, so behave like one and buy an Assault Cuirass. You have bracers, so start with your hyperstone first. It will also help you farm and strike opponents down quickly. Farm and spend your team battle gold on that. If you are only a recipe away, urge your team to wait because it can keep them alive as well.
After that go for Crystalis for obvious reasons. Then go for your Mask of Madness. This makes you a scary man to say the least. You are now a Knight!

Situational Items

Are you being stunned all day long and cant get a hit in? Go BKB.
Are they targeting you like crazy but sice you have Assault you manage to slightly get away and dont want to take the chance anymore? Get a Heart.
Is it late game and you really want to rock them? Skull Basher


I hope you enjoy this build. Sven is one of my favorite strength characters because of it.
