Nocturne Matchups Overview

Nocturne General information

Nocturne tips and tricks

Try to get level 6 as quickly as possible so you’re able to impact the map with your Ultimate ParanoiaR.

As you’re an Assassin, try to assassinate immobile champions that are in the side lane alone. You can also use your Ultimate ParanoiaR to take down champions who are running through the river alone too.

When ganking, get as close as you can to the enemy before casting your Ultimate ParanoiaR just in case they walk out of range. Make sure you’re not spotted by deep wards though.
