CDR wins. Make sure you get 2 blinding darts off while he only gets off 1. If he isn't building CDR, you can win.

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.

kayle ult -> lissandra self ult -> zhonyas -> kalista ult -> bard ult would be the longest combo, not sure on the maths, and there may be a few milliseconds here or there that prevent this being constant

I've played both heroes actually, and both against each other so I can confidently say that Ahri's chamr has a double effect of disable and slow. As wherein Yi's Highlander is a speed enhancing skill with slow immunity. When Ahri hits Yi with her charm, she basically makes him run to her in his Higlander state with NO SLOW AT ALL. Simply put, Ahri is ...

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 ...

In the shop, on the left side, you'll see a Ward Skins option, click on it and from there, you'll see your owned skin with a checkbox on the upper left corner which you check to select your desired skin. Search for Ward skins on this solomid page to see this :

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 ...

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 ...

This is extremely good on tanks that want a sunfire cape as you can buy the Cinderhulk enchantment and be set. This is a very efficient way to play. This works best on champs that can afford to not take flash as they have alternate escapes. Note: For most cases you will use the Rangers Trailblazer E.G. Jax's Q You can also use the stalkers blade If you ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

In the normal game, the answer to your question is Poppy. But since Riot has now released URF or Ultra Rapid Fire, the answer to that question is Vladimir. He can pool about three times and then Zhonya's and then pool three more times. That is 6 seconds the first time then 2.5 and another 6 seconds for a whooping 14.5 seconds of invulnerability.

To invade its important to have good mobility so you can decide to fight or flight. Shaco is good at this because with proper mechanics he can easily win a fight and disapear at anytime if he saves his q. Lee sin is too (he may not have invisibility but he is still very hard to lock down).

Meta has changed so I figured I should add something slightly different in here. First dragon is always worth losing your t1 tower for. The first dragon is a very nice strong buff for your entire team. After this you have different scenarios coming up. 1) You have a dragon but the enemy team does not: This is the hardest scenario for me to figure out. ...

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 ...

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).

there was a trick i think there still is. when ult into a team fight use the triple passive block there is a way to keep three, have a flash. i think its patched, but right before you land use flash right before you hit and you create two ult hits into the ground. team charges in and you get team fight win

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 ...

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 ...

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!

I think Sion is one of the strongest counters to Yorick since he can use Yorick's ghouls against him with Roar of the Slayer (E) by catapulting them into Yorick.

Look up the persons ign on most 3rd party sites will have a button you can click to watch that persons game. A few sites you can try for this are: lolnexus.com na.op.gg

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).

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 ...

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 ...

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

It depends on the skill level of your opponents, calculated through MMR. If your opponents are not great (>45% Win rate) and you are a good player (<60% Win rate), your win will mean less because it wasn't as big of a deal. If you were to lose that game, it would count for more against you because statistically, that loss was not as likely to occur.

Other than hitbox-related points, I guess theres always the psychological factor. Instinctually, one would be more scared of a 6-stack Cho than a wild Kennen. This is simply because of size. Of course, this instinct is not a huge advantage because size does not necessarily translate to strength in this game. But anything counts, I guess.

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 ...

In my opinion, I would not take exhaust on Yasuo. The advantages of taking exhaust are that if you are up against an assassin then you are able to negate a portion of their damage. It also slows so it can help with chasing, running, peeling, or help with aiming your tornado. The season 5 meta as it stands right now is moving away from the bursty assassins to ...

Since pretty much everything has been said, remember that with some champs red buff can overall GIVE you health (shaco, warwick) because of smite bonus, so doing it while already damaged with said champs can help. Also, the crab gives health and lots of XP so it's good too.

I main Riven. Most of her power is in the utility, CC, and mobility of her kit. Like most AD casters, she builds AD/Armor Pen and some tank. Because of the strength and potential in her kit, she excels in trades. She can also spam these abilities because of her lack of a restrictive resource. Her AoE is amazing for waveclear and her dueling with engage and ...

im pretty sure that size can increase the size of some of your abilities like braums shield etc...

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 ...


5

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 ...

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 ...

You win games by forcing enemies into paths they have only bad decisions and no counter or way to come back. Ganking at right time at right place is one way to archive that. Typical low skilled jungle start looks like: Frog(Smite with lane help) + Blue + Wolves Frog(Smite with lane help) + Blue + Recall Frog(Smite with lane help) + Blue + River ...

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 ...

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 ...

It depends on what you are playing : soloQueue or 5v5 ranked team. In Solo Queue : try to communicate with your team when youwant to collect chimes, you can collect with them your chimes safely and even you can get some kills and then snowball. If your team don't respond then stay near your adc, it will be better. In 5v5 ranked team : using a communication ...

I know this won't work with Pantheon/Amumu but other alternative routes might be helpful. I do this on people like Rammus/Zac. Essentially champions without a heavy need for mana. I start Gromp. From here I will skip blue and do wolves. After this you can do red and still have more health than normal after smiting it. This lets you do a level 3 gank ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...
