    Maokai gives more early game pressure on lanes. Both are the tanky gold per 5 route who can use Swiftness boots. To go further on what Dulliath said, they are both strong, but whereas Maokai shines Early-mid, Skarner becomes unstoppable late game with the right build. For both however, Oracles is core pre 10 mins.

    Yeah... Saw that Halloween skin. I like Totemic a lot too. I was leaning Skarner cause he seems a little more like the toons I already have but I'm aware of tthr power of Mao.

    Whichever you pick, they're both a good choice.

    Yup, ALTHOUGH, I read a Red saying that the new remade jungle is going to be so that tanky gold/5 stackers won't be as strong.

    I hope that they go back to the former jungle roles a bit more. Farmer, Control & Ganker. That'd give both Skarner and Maokai solid roles still. Additionally, I think both are accepted by Riot as Jungler, meaning they will try to make sure they fit in the new jungle.

    They'll fit, but whether they will be top? I dunno, I can see more Udyr/Fiddle coming back

    WW will still suck. He's just got such a limited kit.

    So, what are these jungle changes you folks are talking about? Are we going to see the resurrection of the Wriggle's-dependent junglers?

    Some middle point between current jungle and old jungle, apparently

    Possibly, he was mentioned specifically by a Red as to love the new jungle though. Then again, they promised us a lot for the previous remake, so I'm not exactly holding my breath.

    I hope mundo will still be good. He's really good right now, and I can only see him getting better in the next jungle, since he will still probably retain the fastest clear time, and they said they want to make it more rewarding for clearing the jungle.

    I'm looking forward to this change.

    Her Q is the same role it is now. Harass and reliable damage (Although the harass was better pre-rework). Don't know what your friend is talking about.

    Something about Q using the mark to deal extra damage instead of applying it? Hey, I could check a wiki but I just don't know exactly :P I'll leave it at, omg I'm so hot! Had a very good match again, we lost eventually, since we had no tank and two semi-feeders, but the match was awesome. I took about 16/0/4 before the teamfights started, after which it ended up with 26/14/21. What a waste, but it was fun.

    I'm still relatively new to League, one of my roommates managed to get me into it. Only level 13, so I don't have full runes/masteries yet, and I usually play with a premade group of friends (Sometimes a full group, other times with two other friends). The friends don't play on Smurf accounts, so I'm often in a group with a couple of level 30s, so I'm assuming that makes things a little more challenging for me.

    The role I'm usually made to take is Solo Top, which I don't mind. I like solo top. However, we usually face so many teams that don't have a jungle, that I'm often left 1v2. While this doesn't really bother me, I'm really just looking for some suggestions as to who would be best for that role since most teams we run into don't really follow the meta.

    The first solo-top champ I bought was Wukong, because I liked the concept behind him, his appearance and his moves. However, when I'm 2v1 with him, it just seems like I can't poke as well as they can and our jungle often has to come to help me a little too much. It also seems like I can't get alot of cs when I have no decent poke. It gets to the point in some games that I just feel like I'm completely useless, and I can't stand that feeling.

    So, my main question is if there are any better champions for solo top in 1v2 scenarios? My friends have suggested champs such as Vlad or Jayce, but I'm open to any good top-champion at this point.
    Cho'Gath, Warwick and Renekton.

    Man... just when I decide to buy Maokai with IP Riot puts him and his Totemic skin on RP sale. Happy I waited a day RP it is.

  17. #2597
    At a loss on a what champ to get next.

    I have all the AD ranged carries.

    Top : Jax, Olaf, Kayle, Riven, Garen, Gangplank, Akali and WW.

    Mid :Ahri, Morgana and Veigar .

    Jungle : Lee Sin, Skarner and Naut.

    Support : Soraka.

    Im open to suggestions.

    Depends, what lane would you ideally want to play?

    I play mostly Bot lane ADC, with sometimes going top. Just got enough IP together for AP runes and quints so maybe a nice mid lane.

    Can't go wrong with Karthus/Orianna at the moment for mid.

    Top I love Gangplank, but not many people play him at the moment
