Your first ability hit every 20s burns champions.
Creative tools and rule bending
You get free boots at 10 min. but you cannot buy boots before then. These boots give additional MS. For each takedown you acquire the boots 30s sooner.
Start the game with 6 Minion Dematerializers. Killing minions with the item gives permanent bonus damage vs. that minion type.
Aery on Zoe allows you to output a massive amount of repeated damage in skirmishes through the use of [Q] spam and passive Auto procs.
Manaflow Band's empowered mana sustain is great for allowing you to fish for long-rang [Q]s for massive burst damage.
If you're playing into a high damage AP mid (Syndra/LeBlanc), Nullifying Orb can be a valuable alternative to avoid early deaths.
Absolute Focus' additional AP is fantastic for pushing your ability to find 1-shot picks with a good [E] sleep plus long-range [Q].
Scorch further empowers your ability to chip away at the enemies health bar during the lane phase. The extra bit of damage helps you come out ahead in trades and find early kills.
Magical Footwear's' raw gold efficiency allows you to hit a quick 2 item power-spike reliably in the mid game.
Minion Dematerializer helps to keep your weak early wave clear up so that you can match opponent roams and jungle skirmishes.
