    Im currently considering getting all of the hospital ninja skins when theyre on sale. Kennen M.D is on sale today so i feel the need to ask how he is nowadays. Ive used him once or twice in a bot game to try him out so i know i'll like him if i get him. Noticed someone else asked about kennen a few posts up but got no reply so i'll ask again:
    How does Kennen fare in the mid lane compared to other APs? Ive currently got Orianna, Ahri and Swain that i use mainly in the mid.

    Thanks for the advise guys, I tested Thresh, bought him and played him since then and its tons of fun. Won almost every game with this chain swinging bad boy. :P

    He's not that bad, but he's not amazing either. He has nice aoe, but he has to autoattack to get energy back, which is (said by Riot), "a mechanic that doesn't work that well".
    You can go and buy him, but don't expect him to own everything in sight.

    He's pretty nice and pretty fun to play.

    Lost a bit of impact with people running around with 3k health though. But in a nice team setup his AoE stun is still pretty good.

    Got the urge to try mage type champion,but don't really know which pick would be better/more useful for a team and of course fun to play Vlad or Fiddle? These 2 got my eye instantly for some reason.

    Excuse me, are you saying something? Nah, you can't tell me nothing

    Vlad is a good pick for top and mid lane, fiddlesticks is a rather mediocre pick unless you want to jungle as an AP character.

    Vlad is powerful in both mid and top, Fiddle is not really any good in either... Unless you need to hard counter Vlad. He can also jungle, but there are many better junglers out there.

    I'd recommend Vlad as well, beast mid/top lane, however his early game is somewhat weaker so you'll have to play safer then. But after lvl 9 or so, he's incredible.

    thinking about getting either a new adc/sup cause i dont play these roles so often and think about improving in them, thought about draven maybe (only got sivir, corki and kog as adc yet (no ez, mf, caith, vayne or varus) but draven shall need a lot of practise, doesnt he? for sup i thought about lulu cause i tried her already and think she is quite good to "carry" bad adcs in ranked

    the other option would be extending my jungle rooster with either shaco, vi or heca (atm jungling mostly with xin, shyvana, jax, lee or cho)

    any suggestions?

    Carrying bad ADCs can be done to some degree with Alistar and Leona. Taric is also (currently) a very safe and very effective support for yoloqueue. As for ADCs, you have at least one end-game hypercarry, go for an early game wonder, Draven works well, but requires some practice. Ez is a safe pick, and MF is a great lane bully. However, Cait is both safe in early lane phase and easy to harass with due to her massive range.
    Meh.

    Ok thanks for responses,got my Vlad and will be testing him out today. And since I have some IP left I need another advice.
    I want to get another "cheaper" champion for my support squad,so I was wondering either Morgana or Lux, but thing is, I never saw Morgana support while I saw some Lux supports. Does that mean Morgana's not a good choice for support over Lux or I'm just unlucky and haven't spotted one yet.

    Out of personal experience, I would rather have a good Morgana support than a good Lux support. Lux's shield is quite nice to have, but possibly harder to use to full effect in a clusterfuck. However Morgana's shield... is a real beauty :P Also, when team fights start, Morgana's ult is still very useful on a support budget, whereas Lux will not deal amazing damage when she's building support items.

    I don't have a ton of experience with them, but from my limited experience and PoV, I would rather see Morgana supporting me.
    Meh.

    They both have a snare, their shields differ a little (One can also deflect physical damage and the other can give cc-immunity). And Lux is more for long range damage, Morg can just go and stun all of them aswell with R. It's more about personal preference I guess.

    Black oil isn't very good spell if you are not supposed to take creeps and push.
    Singularity is great poke though, this makes up for poor shield.

    Anyway both supports have their usefulness when you are trying to run that scumbag poke comp. Both can fish for long ranged CC and have some team disengage options.

    Been looking very closely at Vi. She seems so damned OP that I feel the need to buy! lol.

    I wouldn't go so far as to say she's op, but she's good, and fun!
    Meh.

    Trying to finish up buying all the supports and I plan on getting Lulu and Zyra, but can't decide which one to get first.

    I play a lot of solo que, and I feel like Lulu is better if you have a team that knows what they are doing, while Zyra can be more of a "I'm carrying this game" kinda champ.

    I recently made a stream where I mainly play D3, LoL, and WoW. Help me make it better! Will usually be up between 5pm - 1am EST.

    I can agree that Zyra has more potential to turn a game around from the support position with that ult of hers :3
    Meh.

    I'm playing jungle and I'm currently comfortable with my performance on Kha'zix and Nocturne. The think is, I would like a tankier champion that would be able to initiate in fights but not be just a second support at end game. Amumu, Malphite is banned in my elo and I was narrowing my choices to either Jarvan IV or Vi. What would you suggest?

    If you want a more support-ish jungler that can take a bit of damage, Jarvan IV would be the better choice. Do note that he does need to build damage/tankiness to perform either of the two, as he's not one of champions that can do damage without tank items.

    Vi is more an assassin-ish jungler that can be built to tankiness. She's good if you want more of a damage-oriented jungler.
