    Looking to spend some of my IP on a 3150/4800 Champ. Not interested in the cheaper ones currently because I could save up for them much quicker, and I own most of them already.

    I am usually top or mid, but play everything. Just not as good at the other roles. That being said it is mostly mids left in that price range I don't own.

    Currently considering:

    4800: Galio, Swain, Kennen, Maokai

    3150: Anivia, Xin Zhao, Gragas, Lux, LeBlanc, Kassadin, Gangplank, Sona, Corki

    Thoughts

    Galio - Played 2 bot games with him during free week, didn't get to try in an actual game. Seems cool.
    Lux - Only played her once and I don't completely recall how I liked the experience, but it wasn't a negative one.
    Anivia - Played her a handful of times during last free week. I can see myself liking her if I got good with her but I tend to shy away from champs so mana hungry.
    Gangplank - Tried him a few times as well, wasn't really impressed but I guess he would be nice to have in my pool if needed.

    The others I have never personally played, but have seen enough of to be interested in.

    Sona would probably be a good pick honestly because I only really have Leona/Janna/Lulu for supports, and I don't enjoy Janna that much. That being said I rarely play the role so it is not a high priority.

    Edit:

    Added Corki to the list. I have only played him once and it was a realllly bad time. Lost the lane rather badly, but he also felt really weird to play, so it wasn't a great experience.

    That being said I don't have many AD carries at all(really only play Ez and Kog) and he seems to be very good in the right hands.

    Ahh, just received my 30k IP. Time for a champion spree!

    Is yorick any good with the new items? Muramune seems like it would make him better than he was before. Same with urgot.

    Both of them make good use to Muramana. Urgot still has a bit of issues due to the last set of nerfs to him though.

    with the recent buffs/nerfs, whose good top lane? besides rengar (nerfed), irelia, jayce, yorick. how's lee sin fair? what about pantheon/talon even with the BC nerfs?

    I play Singed Anivia and Soraka. I need an ADC and a Jungler any recommendations?

    Tbh I still don't see why so few people use Elise on top. With the new masteries and buff to armor and magic penetration she's even better top lane. Sure, her teamfight presence is still a tad weak (especially since Bruisers became the new carries -.-) but on top she can dominate the shit out of anyone that doesn't have godlike sustain. Magic Pen boots + Haunting Guise and a single Human Form Q does around 30% damage really. It's just a matter of getting them down slowly then finishing them off before they know what happens.

    That and in my opinion it's one of the most original releases Riot made in a long time. She ain't pure AP, she ain't a pure tank, she ain't a real bruiser or assassin. She's just Elise.

    thinking about a new bruiser for top lane because at the moment my usual toplane consists out of mordekaiser, singed, cho, (poppy), malphite and shyvanna and mundo.

    thought about one of darius, jayce, riven, irelia, olaf, wuku or jax. considered vlad too but i think i got quite a lot of ap tops. maybe talon too who got just a nice push through the bc change and is viable for mid too

  8. #2948
    Guess I've never seen a Talon or shyvanna top in 700+ games...I'm really a bad top but I feel safe and usefull with Riven.

    Shyvanna top was made popular by Darien of M5 early on in Season 2. She is really strong early on and wins trades against just about everyone. He'd clear the lane and then quickly run off and counter-jungle either the golems / red or blue / wolves.

    It fell out of favor quickly as people would just ward for it and then you'd find yourself caught with your pants down being pounced on by their mid, jungle, and top laner.

    Caitlin is very good paired with Nunu, and is a safe pick as you can win trades in lane due to having more range.
    Corki is just a stronger ADC overall, especially with a Black Cleaver to shred the enemy's armor (his E applies 1 stack every 0.3 or so seconds).

    Nocturne is a very nice jungler since his clear is pretty fast and he has the tools to gank a lane efficiently.
    I would recommend getting Ezreal/Corki for ADC as they are very safe picks due to their escapability and seem to be in a good spot.

    Judging by your list you kind of need a new AD-based bruiser, Riven or Jayce would be best suited for this job. Jayce is easier in lane since his kit is so well-rounded, but Riven is also very strong early game with some AD marks/quints and is very destructive if you build her with high damage items. (BT + BC, gg).

    I've seen Talon tops; they lost their lane.
    Shyvana is never played on top because people don't know how to do it, with the enhanced jungle it's even less popular than it allready was, so you probably won't see any Shyvana top laners any time soon.

    It's been a while though... maybe Shyvana top is something worth trying again?

    Although the new jungle might make it difficult.

  12. #2952
    may try it out today or tomorrow, depending on picks

    How is Sejuani in lane? I was going to try her more as a tankish character than a jungler. Just wondering if that is viable, at least in solo queue normal games.

    Sejuani lacks damage and sustain so she will lose trades with most other tops. If you have a strong damage jungler you can get some nice ganks going thanks to her slows but its not a strong pick.

    That's what I figured. Hmmm, in that case I am going to try out a few of the free heroes this week. So far Nid seems really good but not really my style. Going to retry Kass and maybe Ak later.

    Yeah, I would stay away from Sejuani as she's just weak right now, or at least inferior to other champions.
    She picks up a lot late-game, but you might not make it there, or you'll have given the other team too much time to become strong. Much why champs like Nasus, Veigar, Poppy, Sion etc. aren't as popular these days.

    Mid... Zyra or Ahri! Wanted to play both but not sure which I should buy...

    Both are very strong mid-laners right now.

    My pick goes to Zyra. She can fill the support role if you get one of those assholes that blast you with "AP mid or feed" nonsense. Additionally, her ultimate can be fight-changing, especially when used in tandem with other AoE CC/damage ults (think Malphite, Wukong, Amumu, MF, Nunu, etc).

    So guys what do u think of the new item "Twin shadows", I never tried it before yesterday but actually seems usefull and cheap, especially in low ELO where "the more u see the better it is".

    Not exactly matching the topic of this particular thread, but its a fantastic support item.
