Triforce gives you the utility slow (which is awesome with your E slow), nice burst combo with Q + E (think of it like an AP caster -- Burst Q with the triforce proc AA 2-3 times then E + tri proc again it does a large burst of damage). The extra movespeed with utility is nice, the extra health, and the small crit chance. Overall it has good synergy to give him a little tankyness and more damage + utility for ganks.
Infinity edge lets you hit REALLY Hard but lacks on every other cool feature that the trinity force gives for roughly the same damage (IE by itself isn't high crit chance).
Boy what u max first
i go e>w>q am i k?
I Max E first (passive is auto attack slow, active is nice damage and ranged slow) then Q 2nd. A lot of people like maxing W seconds, but I prefer all of my damage to be guaranteed and up front -- boxes are unreliable most of the time.
