League of Legends S12: Draven ADC Build Guide

From runes to items, gameplay tips amd more, we've put together a guide to help you master playing Draven in the botlane in League of Legends.

Be mindful that there are several ways to build and play a champion, and you'll need to be adaptable as the game and the enemy team progress.

That said, this guide is a good starting point to helping you get to grips with the champion and making an impact in your games.

Draven Rune Choices

Core Items

Immortal Shieldbow

3400 Gold

Other good items include Infinity Edge and Lord Dominik's Regards.

Starting Item & Boots

Health Potion

50 Gold

Doran's Blade

450 Gold

Berserker's Greaves

Skill Order

While your choices may differ according to how the game progresses, the typical Draven skill priority is:

R > Q > W > E

Summoner Spells

These are the summoner spells most typically taken by Draven in this role. Naturally, this may change depending on match-ups.

Flash - League of Legends
Heal - League of Legends


Draven is extremely dependent on his auto-attacks, but doesn't necessarily need attack speed to do that. He has solid base damage, and is one of the better snowball champions in the botlane. Management of the Spinning Axe is key to mastering Draven.

  • Level 1 - Take Q - Spinning Axe, so you can start stacking your passive.
  • Level 2 - Take W - Blood Rush, for the move speed buff.
  • First Back - Start building towards Shieldbow with a Noonquiver, or pick up your boots.

Tips & Tricks

  • You can catch the axes of an opposing Draven, if you're playing non-draft Normals.
  • Catching the Spinning Axe resets the cooldown of Blood Rush, so try to keep it active at all times for the extra mobility.
  • You can surprise your opponents by moving during the return path of Whirling Death. A Flash could mean more enemies are hit! 
  • Stand Aside can interrupt channeled spells, such as Katarina's ult.
