Nocturne full item guide:
When: Ideal for a more aggressive early game playstyle. If you plan on invading the enemy jungle, dueling the enemy jungler, or going for early ganks, this item can give you the edge you need.
Why: Provides bonus attack speed which synergizes well with Nocturne's passive, Umbra Blades, allowing for faster clears and better dueling potential.
When: Best for a balanced approach. If you're unsure about the enemy jungler's strength or if you're against a jungler who can counter-jungle effectively, this item offers a safer start.
Why: Grants bonus health and sustain, ensuring you stay healthy during your jungle clears and are less vulnerable to invades.
When: Opt for this when you anticipate a more passive early game or if you're against high burst enemy champions.
Why: Provides bonus magic resist and a shield against magic damage, making it effective against AP-heavy compositions or AP junglers.

Nocturne - General Playstyle and Gameplay:
Focus on farming efficiently in the jungle. Nocturne has strong 1v1 potential, so look for isolated targets or counter-gank opportunities.
Start looking for picks using your ultimate, Paranoia. This is when Nocturne shines the most, as he can quickly turn the tide of skirmishes.
In teamfights, try to target the enemy backline, especially squishy carries. Use your spell shield (W) wisely to block crucial crowd control or high-damage abilities.
Nocturne - Farming:
Nocturne's passive, Umbra Blades, helps him clear jungle camps efficiently. Prioritize using Q on camps for the bonus AD and clear speed.
Dragon and Baron fights as Nocturne:
For dragons and barons, use your Q for the AD boost and smite to secure. Your ultimate can be used to either zone out the enemy jungler or to initiate a fight around these objectives.
Teamfights as Nocturne:
Dive the backline or peel for your carries based on the situation. Remember to use your W to block key abilities.
Nocturne - Matchups:
Jarvan IV: One of the most difficult matchups currently. With his high pick rate, consider banning him. His early game gank strength & mobility can nullify your strong 1v1 potential. After he hits 6, he can ult you in teamfights, making you less effective.
Annie: Currently one of the best mid laners. Easy to set up ganks with, and her AOE stun can turn a teamfight in your favor.
