    What do you guys think? Should I save up for Leona or buy Galio? I love the tankish kind of characters but I am wondering if anyone can help.

    Hi guys! Should i buy Pantheon with IP and buy the full metal skin that is on sale while i'm at it or save IP or just spend the RP buying Draven? I do play mostly AD carry, but i have quite a few already and no real top champ; The RP was a gift so i don't mind "wasting" it xD

    There's some hate against Draven over here I think. =P I don't have either, but I know a few people that REALLY enjoy Pantheon, and he's a beast once you get the hang of him.
    <-- That is otterly adorable.

    Yes. =P I prefer Pantheon though, as a good one will wreck your day, whereas I haven't lost a lane to Draven yet.

    Let's put it this way: you can buy attack speed. You can buy damage. You can not buy range.

    She is the single scariest carry late game. She has a unique power curve though: strong early game (lvl 2/3 and then 6 again) and then falls off in mid game due to the transition from AP to AD. She goes full on beast mode again once she starts reaching end game build.

    Level your Q as fast as possible (don't forget to take a point in jump and 2 points in E for escape and amazing lane harass). Counter mid game deficiencies by getting both buffs if possible. Stay behind your tanks in team fights and use jump to escape if enemy tries to close in on you. She is a very safe AD carry. You have two builtin escapes (ulti can be used to escape).

    Overall, she is very fun and perfect for solo que. People might love their Graves and Corkis and Ezs for solo que, but Tristana is as safe a pick as them if not more.
    Level Q as fast as possible? Why the hell would you want to do that? I don't touch it until level 8/9 (depending on tower pushing/items).

    It costs a crapton of mana and with the piddly AD+AS you have the additional AS does bugger all.

    I like attacking faster :P don't use in lane phase though, just level it. The jump and E damage is good, but I keep the jump to "last hit" enemy champs so I can use it again if I'm low and need to get out. I try to get IE as fast as I can (around 20 mins mark or even before), so having Q at higher level when you have your IE (and couple dorans) helps alot in early/mid game team fights. I don't use jump and E at all when fighting 3 or more enemies. It's also better at tower pushing which I like to get down sooner rather then later so I can farm around and do other things.

    It's not hate. Just the fact that he is simply not good enough atm. He is sorta worse then MF and maybe Cait (I never played Cait). MF has a strong lane phase and mid game, whereas he just has a strong lane phase.

    It's kind of funny, because in my eyes...Draven is slightly OP.
    I have never ever ever lost a lane as Draven...ever. Be it bot, top or in 3vs3. His harass is absolutely insane (basically you get a caitlin's headshot (or what's her passive called) on your face every time you come close. He can chase like no other too. Once he hits six his burst is amazing. I also didn't experience him falling off. I normally start boots and pots, then dorans blades and lifesteal thingy. Then I start working towards either bloodthirster/phantomdancer/Infinity edge depending on what I need first. Often also end up with a Maw of Malmortius to avoid being blown up.
    I'm also an AD player that never ever takes heal. I always take exhaust. This has saved me countless times, especially late game, but also early game, as I tend to be an aggressive player.
    I would never want to play Draven with Soraka though. You just don't need that mana at all. I'd rather have a good Blitzcrank or Alistar with me.

    Now you can say I played bad players, and sure, they're not pro's. But no other champion has given me as much success as Draven (and I'm by no means a bad player).

    I feel he might be a bit like Cassiopeia. People used to FLAME you for picking her...then some pro started using her, people learned how to use her, and suddenly she was OP and needed to be nerfed. The only buff she got in between was getting vision on her miasma (which wasn't the thing that was nerfed afterwards).

    Leveling Q means you ignore what Trist helps get through her horrid mid game: her strong early game. 2 kills early on propel her ahead and makes for a far easier game.

    I've found that a rank in Q can really help out in the transition to the mid game, but I pick up E first as well when I play her. and 2 kills early on propel her? Get it? Her W is Rocket Jump. I built a rage blade on her the other night and it was nothing short of amazing due to her AP scaling.

    Q only becomes useful when you get more AS. W before E since Rocket jump is your escape and E pushes the lane by itself, even with perfect last hitting.

    I go W>E>W>E>Q>R>Q>Q>Q, leveling R whenever I can and leveling jump after that.

    What I have noticed is that if I am dominating my lane (which is 80% of the times, the only AD I have trouble against are Cait and sometimes Draven, or if there is a good Alister in the mix), the jungler starts to camp bot lane, so I'm restored to AA. I normally get kills quite easily leveling this way.

    W and E become pretty useless for attacking asap lane phase ends, so my main goal is to get PD done and making Q viable.

    I dunno, I find the bit of a steroid to be kind of nice while going into mid game. Usually pick it up if I'm right by a tower that we're after and that little bit of speed will make the tower die. And E first for that passive harass, to kind of force them off being so close to their minions. Usually W at level 2 unless I misclick Q. The use of E just feels a little more comfortable, and I can force the reset on the wave after a clear.

    So you can run and shoot really fast and do no damage... Really, rush Infinity Edge first. It's the single most important item for Trist.

    Rageblade is actually something of an interesting choice. It's just a bit of a pity that it delays your main build by so much.

    By picking up E first, you open yourself up to level 2 ganks. Since so many junglers these days run bot straight from blue, I really prefer having the escape.

    If you want top and have jungling runes, forget Akali, Ahri, Rammus and Viktor. Trundle is pretty solid both on top and in the jungle and can make good use of your runes. Akali requires a specific rune set. Ahri is a good choice, but does require different runes. I honestly wouldn't bother with Rammus or Viktor.

    Ofcourse I get IE first. I rush PD after that.

    From that list, Rammus is about the only one who can jungle, with the exception of Trundle...ish. I mainly play as Ahri, but she needs a different rune page. I love Ahri, though. Great escape, decent cc, a passive that gives spell vamp, aoe, and true damage. But yeah, Rammus if you need a jungler, Ahri if you don't.

    Depends on what role u want to do. They are all decend top champs. Cho, Mundo and Malphite are also good junglers.

    Blitz can jungle but is more of a support pick.

    If you want a top, go for Akali. She is one of the harder champs to play (imo) and has one of the hardest early games, but once you get your ultimate you are an unstoppable dunking machine. Her damage is absolutely insane, Good mobility from her ult, nice escape tool which can be used to juke people & slow enemies, OK-ish sustain from her passive, it's nothing amazing... But it's noticeable!
