No, it's not advantageous for those champions. As soon as you perform any action the undo button will grey out and you won't be able to undo your last purchase. This even happens if you do an action passively (such as Teemo stealth or Homeguards).

They will not remove your account: Will I lose my content if my account becomes inactive? No! Account content (Champions, Skins, RP, etc) can never be lost through inactivity. Only your Summoner Name will be affected. However, you will loose League Points (LP) and maybe even ranks. Your name can also become available to be claimed after 6 + (each ...

That would be 5.5 seconds for every champion and 13.5 seconds for Poppy. Since you won't allow a small time window it works as follows: For every champion: Kayle ultimate - 3 seconds Stasis (Bard R, Lissandra R, Zhonya's Hourglass) - 2.5 Seconds Now of course you'd have to time this absolutely perfectly and as you've mentioned slightly before kayle ...

There is a video that lists all those skins you're talking about. Check it here Please note that these are just visual "buffs" (Notice the quotation marks in the word buffs). First A few things to note (Disclaimers): The video only references skins that you could buy at the time of the making of the video. (about 3 January 2013); The "buffs" that these ...

Chimes are quite helpful for Bard. The first 5 are fairly important as they give his meeps a slow (albeit a minor one early on) as well as hitting 25 which gives them AoE damage in a cone. Generally, you should only venture out if the chimes are fairly close or after you have killed an opposing laner. Wards are extremely important to ensure your safety as ...

You really have 2 options for laning against Riven and not getting torn apart. Keep in mind, that being slightly behind her in lane is actually beating her. She needs kills to get levels and snowball. 1) Play a tank who can deal with her damage and thrive. Bring TP. I run a lot of Malphite into her. As Malphite, you will get behind, but that's ok since ...

This is a thing you need to know about before using it. I've seen a lot of people playing it in the wrong situation and on the wrong champs. Even if you pick it in the right situation it's not easy to execute. What are the advantages of Toplane smite? You can buy Cintderhulk which is probably the best scaling tank item in the game. Challenging Smite ...

In 99% of the cases, doing Baron while the enemy team is still up is a bad Idea for soloqueue. Especially during earlier stages of the game, Nashor just deals way too much damage and 2 enemy teammembers can potentially kill 5 People who are busy fighting for the buff. So in general you should absolutely refrain from doing baron early, especially if you ...

From the Thresh wiki page: On Summoner's Rift, the drop rate for souls from small minions is 33%. However, the probability adjusts dynamically. If you are above or below your expected quota of soul drops from small minions, the probability lowers or rises by a small amount until you are back at your quota of drops. It is worth stressing that this only ...

The focus is on Cinderhulk rather than smite. It is 100% gold efficient at 600 pre-Cinderhulk health (so basically any character), not including the immolate passive (which is the big reason people want it). Its immolate burns for 9 less damage than Sunfire, but increases based on time in combat to as much as 8 more damage/second than Sunfire. It is good ...

Riven's damage depends on her hitting you with her q and her auto attacks in quick succession, so don't let her do it. Ranged champions can do this easily since they can poke from a safe range, but any melee champion with an escape or stun can break up her combo by staying out of range after she's used abilities and before she can auto attack. Keep track ...

Exhaust Exhausts target enemy champion, reducing their Movement Speed and Attack Speed by 30%, their Armor and Magic Resist by 10, and their damage dealt by 40% for 2.5 seconds. Ignite Ignites an enemy champion, dealing 50 + (20 × level) true damage over 5 seconds, applying Grievous Wounds icon grievous wounds and revealing them for the duration. The ...

No Yasuo's windwall will not block Thresh's auto attacks. Although they are ranged attacks, they are not projectiles. A Yasuo windwall will also not be able to block Vel'Koz's auto attacks since those are breams of energy (not projectiles). Fun fact: Although the windwall cannot block the auto attacks of Thresh, it will be able to block the Runaan's ...

When should you gank? You should Gank whenever you can create pressure without harming you nor your laners. If your laners are pushed it's harder to gank, but still doable, however you have to mind where the enemy jungler is to prevent him taking Dragon or counter ganking you. Ganking as Amumu on Top In my opinion, it's the easiest lane to gank before 6 ...

There is no special formula to get out of bronze. It's not any harder to get out of than any other tier. If you are better than the players you are against, you will naturally get it over time. If you aren't, then you won't. One thing worth mentioning though, support is likely a harder position to get out of Bronze than other positions. It's not that ...

The only way to "dodge" a Tower shot after it has been fired is to become untargetable. Several champions have this capability, but every champion can become untargetable through the use of Zhonya's Hourglass. However, to survive a tower with Zhonya's, one of several things must happen: Get out of the tower's natural range before using Zhonya's - The thing ...

No, tie-breakers do not earn points in the fantasy league according to a Rioter, who I asked in a private chat.

You havent technically unlocked the ward skin yet. The skin you have "Unlocked" will be rewarded with the end of season 5. You'll find all the other ward skins the following way: In the Client shop you'll find a tab on the left side that's labeled "Ward Skins". If you click on it you should see a graphical display of all the ward skins. There's also a ...

ODIN was simply a code name for the Crystal Scar while it was in development. Riot never stated why they called it ODIN but apparently they havent changed the name. Some fan theories suggest that it has something to do with Odyn's Valley which is the original home of the Bracken (Skarner's kind) and it's also close to the Crystal Scar on the Map. However ...

Sure is. Because it's an AoE ability, Spell vamp is reduced to one-third effectiveness. You can read all about Amumu here, or Spell Vamp here!

This is all based off your ELO, which is a hidden score Riot does not show you which it uses for matchmaking. At the start of a new season your ELO gets reset back towards 1200: ELO = (ELO-1200)/2+1200. You then play 10 matches, with those matches having a larger effect on your ELO than a normal match. At the end of the matches it places you into a ...

Fingerless gloves will help. Heating up your room will help too (I assume you aren't playing outside). If neither of those is an option then pitch a tent using sheets/duvet/whatever over both you and the computer. Soon the heat from the computer will warm everything up to be nice and toasty.

You can do it mid to late game. Earliest at 20 min. Typically to solo him you basically need near full build. However there are numerous cheese tactics with different champions that work. Ex: Heimerdinger (video) Clearly some champions are better suited for this then others. It is way easier to duo Baron and can be done with about any tank/sustain + dps ...

Ok, so your specific question has for the most part been answered. (It's doable but generally inadvisable). I'd just like to add that rather than soloing/duoing baron, having your whole team sneak baron can be extremely effective in lower elos – specifically when your team is losing and the opposing team has control of dragon. Generally if you have the ...

I would have to say it depends on which champions you are using for example full build master yi can solo baron pair him with a very tanky champ like thresh or bard (picked these two because of their kits) and you can potentially sneak it. When you can do it is situational. How far ahead if you team how far ahead is the enemy team where is the enemy team ...

It depends on what type of jungler you prefer to be. Assassin Glasscannon Shaco, non Bruiser Rengar, Kha'Zix etc, your job is to kill the enemy Carries. Your team shouldn't have more than 1 assassin against a tank composition (because too many assassins means that the enemy team can just walk over to you because you lack a front line ), so you take out the ...

1. How do teams qualify to play in the Challenger Series? Well this is a little bit difficult for me to explain but, here you have the official page. 2. How do teams qualify to play in the LCS? At the end of the season, the top seven teams will automatically re-qualify for the LCS. The 8th and 9th place LCS teams will then play in a Promotion ...

I've not tested it recently but I've seen a Riot Developer post from 2013 where he says: This is true for all champions -- they lifesteal off wards. It's one of those "unintended but not truly a bug" details that we've kept in based on a judgment that it leads to slightly more interesting gameplay than cutting it would. Personally, it feels odd to ...

There is one way that works for every champion and doesn't need any items, BUT it requires the tower to be low hp; If the tower gets destroyed while the projectile is in the air, for some reason, you don't take any damage from it. I've been saved couple of times because of this (and lost some kills). It doesn't help you much, but you really shouldn't dive ...

For most cases Riot tries to keep the range indicator as accurate as possible. I do not know all but a few that I know are Nidalee's spear and Vi's Q. Blitzcrank's Q has a smaller animation, so it looks like the skillshot is smaller than it it. This is only valid on the I-Blitzcrank skin though. This is also the same for the Underworld Twisted Fate skin and ...
