Can you tell me the item build, the skill build, the masteries and the runes for her?
Thanks in advance
She's an anti-carry; her job is to take out the enemy carry very quickly, transforming team fights into 4v5's. This is done by camping out in brush or on the side lines, aligning an enemy carry between a wall and Poppy, ulting on that target, casting Death Fire Grasp (item), heroic charging the target into a wall while the projectile is in flight, and devastating strike. Ignite if the target does not die from this combo. Mostly anyone can be killed in under a second with this combination.
After killing their carry, run to your tank, forcing attention onto yourself. Your team takes potshots on their disorientated team, you turn when the attention is off you.
Items to build - Saph crystal > Sheen > Sorc Boots > Death Fire Grasp > Lich-Bane > Void Staff > Abysal Scepter > Zhonya's.
