She is receiving a lot of bans now due to everyone realizing her potential on the build so make sure to utilize her whenever she gets through the banning phase. The build takes time to ramp up but is very strong when fully online. It really depends upon the matchup and team composition but be sure to try her out. Her ‘W’ synergizes extremely well with the build as it procs the on hit items.
Either way, we won’t be seeing much of on-hit Neeko on the Summoner’s Rift anymore. Neeko lacks a gap closer, meaning that she is rather immobile and prone to getting pounced on. She has her stealth from Shapesplitter, but that won’t be enough to get away from many champions. She also struggles to deal with anyone who can burst her down while also being mobile.
The unique item path gave some relevance to a normally untouched champion in Patch 9.5 as players realized on-hit Neeko’s potential. Pop Blossom is an extremely strong ultimate ability and one of the best team fighting ultimates we’ve seen in a while. It has an incredibly high base damage and scales with 130 percent of your AP making it quite possibly the strongest AoE ultimate in the game. It’s like a mix between a full AP Nunu ult with the stun of an Amumu ult. The passive component of Shapesplitter is strong and scales well with ranks. The movement speed granted also increases with rank, allowing you to be even more slippery.
Meanwhile, her on-hit damage on her W ability is being reduced from 50 to 170 to 50 to 130. Neeko begins charging spiritual essence in a large area around her. After a short delay, Neeko leaps into the air, slowing enemies in the area and gaining a shield that increases in size based on the number of enemies within the area. Upon landing, Neeko bursts with spiritual energy, dealing a large amount of damage to to all enemies in the area stunning for 1.25 seconds.
If the spiral passes through two enemies, it will grow in size and speed, and the root duration against the last champion hit is further increased. Neeko joins the battle as the newest addition to the League of Legends roster! She is a cute half-chameleon vastaya trickster mage who is a ton of fun to play and watch. After an six month dry spell, we finally get a brand new champion, and I have to say, I don’t think we could’ve asked for more. The champion had some high moments but has failed to really deliver.
It’s also worth noting that the proc is every third auto attack, not every third attack onto one specific champion or monster (like Gnar’s W). This means that you may, for example, attack minions in lane twice and proceed to use the third attack onto the enemy champion. Welcome to the METAsrc statistical Neeko build guide, Mid Lane 12.8. METAsrc Champion Build Guides for League of Legends are based on statistical analysis of the latest match data, so you can trust that our stats are unbiased and always up to date. Due to its surprisingly short cooldown, you should look to use this as often as possible to poke down the enemy or to push the wave. You could also try to do both at the same time by hitting the minion wave while also poking the enemy.
I’m looking for ideas and to see if anyone else thinks of the dumbest stuff like I do. I used to run pure on-hit or pure AP with Neeko, but lately I’ve taken to running Black Cleaver, Kraken, Greaves, Nashor’s, Rabadon’s, and Rylai’s. The ability kit of this pick allows it to be played in the Mid Lane position effectively.
