Extended Build

What Do I Like About This Build ?

Early Game:
This build is really good early game. To clear a lane quickly, jump on the archers, then use rend on the lane. You benefit from great damage because of the starter and first item. You are able to fight easily.
Once you get the Dawnbringer, you gain a lot of CDR. So usually you can use your abilities more often than your opponent.

Mid Game:
Mid Game is the time you will be the weakest. You won't make a ton of damage but you are still able to help your team. You have 40% CDR so don't hesitate to engage. I use a blink because you can keep your leap to chase the enemies. You can use Barrier Formation to temporize while you get your leap online again to disengage. You are very safe and your ult is the main force of Nike. The slow is insanely painful, it deals a lot of damage and is hard to miss. So use it ! You will get it back soon enough anyway.

Late Game:
In late game, you have to be extremely aggressive. You have 50% CDR. You get your ultimate every 63 seconds. You leap every 11 seconds. So you can easily engage then disengage if you are getting kicked.
This build has not much protection, but you get the 12% mitigation from Oni Hunter's Garb and the stacks from the Breasplate of Determination. Plus the 10% from the Dawnbringer when your use your ult. And the shield that comes with it, of course. So you are pretty safe.

I really enjoy this build, it makes Nike really good. Not a huge damage dealer, but you will be a pain in the *** of the enemies with all your control and constant guerrilla.
I hope you will like this build if you try it ! Don't forget to vote if you like or not !

This build is all over the place and the skill order makes no sense to me... why do you not level your 2 until very late inn the game? And like the other person mentioned how this build does not utilise Sphinx's Baubles whatsoever. This needs some work

Dawn bringer doesn't give CDR. this build only gives 30 CDR 40 with blue totem. so bauble passive isn't being used
