Best Draven Spells
Like his rune set, Draven should have the usual AD carry summoner spells. Flash for mobility and flexibility, and heal for survivability during skirmishes. Draven players will be using these summoner spells a lot, so run these spells on all of your games. You can also try running flash barriers on certain occasions. However, heal will always be the better choice as an ADC.
Best Draven Ability Order
If you did not know yet, Draven shines during the early game. He deals a ton of damage, as Primetime Draven may call it, during the laning phase. To get the most out of his kit, always maximize his spinning axe. Next, is level up his blood rush to increase his bonus movement speed and attack speed. Thankfully, Draven has the same game plan everytime, so just follow the skill order below to get the best out of him!
Best Draven Items
Managing League of Legends items is always hard for AD carry players. Thankfully, there is a pattern that you can follow to have the best items possible. The next sections will give out the best items for Draven ADC during the early, mid, and late game.
Best Early Game Draven Items
The best start for Draven is currently a doran's blade and a health potion. It gives him balanced stats: sustain, damage, and health. You can also try building cull in some games, but Doran's blade will let you have a more aggressive playstyle during the early game.
Best Mid Game Draven Items
Look into completing either your boots or mythic item first during the mid-game. Draven players should run eclipse as their mythic item 90% of the time because of its bonus lethality and shield for survivability. After finishing both of those items, try buying some items to complete your first legendary item, either the collector, infinity edge, or essence reaver.
There are more choices because of the multitude of mythic items available, such as kraken slayer and immortal shieldbow, but eclipse is the best Draven mythic item available.
Best Late Game Draven Items
During the late game, build the best items that will give you the most damage output. This includes items that give additional attack damage and critical strike chance. If going against tank champions, try lord dominik's regards as an alternative for any of the items below.
