    Who is the best support for Varus? Include any champions that can successfully support, not ones that can support but shouldn't. Also no Blitz. He is always banned. lol
    If what doesn't kill you, makes you stronger. Then I should be a god by now.

    Maybe not perfect, but there is some pretty nice chart showing bot lane synergies and counters. Not sure if this is the latest version though

    Morgana is great. As are Janna and Sona.

    //edit: Seeing the above linked page, I can see why Lulu would be great as well, but rarely if ever see her played.

    Blitz can walk up to Corki, knock him up and then pull him in once Corki burns Valkyrie.

    Kog is a winner to buy imo

    Nunu maybe? Stacking up the blight stacks faster.

    And yeah I see Lulu maybe once every 30 matches at most. I actually might see Karma more than her.

    More like once every 3. She's one of the strongest supports now after the nerds to Sona and Blitz. Good poke with glitter, strong trading with shield and pix, and her ulti is incredibly flexible in its use.

    So what would make a good support for Twitch? Unless I'm missing something he doesn't seem to be in the chart for some reason.

  10. #2850
    Yeah he is not. You want to abuse ambush-spray to get kills with insane steroids and make up for his vulnerability. His harass is pretty good though. For that you should get someone who can protect you with cc and is flexible enough (Leona might work, but IDK if do or die is fine for Twitch, so I'd go for Zyra/Lulu/Fiddlesticks).

    Zyra/Nunu seem the most likely candidates.

    Iirc, I saw Aphromoo's Twitch being accompanied by a Morgana support.

    Fiora or Brand??
    I mainly go mid with Akali, but I can change if needed..

    If you really like mid, then go for brand. If you want to go top or even jungle then go for fiora.

    Muffinqt enjoys playing unconventional supports. It doesn't really work too well against people know know what they're doing, but in Solo Que most anything works. Not enough AP for Shield to be worthwhile and you die before Chain procs. All you are there for are Q's, and if you want a support with a snare/lockdown potential, then there are plenty of other options.

    Both are subpar picks, but Brand isn't as bad as Fiora.

    Tbh, Fiora works better in mid than top. Depends on what you encounter (Ryze or Swain are no fun), but most squishies you can really really hurt.

    This wasn't solo queue. It was IPL.

    Finally gave in and bought Gallio along with the two cheap heroes I like, Janna and Sliv. Gallio clicked with me the free week I played with him and has gotten me compliments (solo normal queue of course but as a level 13 player this is huge for me) so he was a no brainer. Janna just interests me and I either do great with her or meh. Sliv was more of an impluse buy but she works for me in dominion.

    After Nami, is there anyone else I should get or should I just sit on who I have? I know runes are important but I am not sure what role I will end up playing just yet. I love support but I also love being tankish on Gal, as well.

    Good call on Galio, he's a soloQ monster...play him AP mid though (or top against a Vlad, Rumble, etc), he's a sub-par support.

    If you love supports, here are the must haves (in my opinion, of course):

    Sona
    Janna
    Nunu
    Blitzcrank
    Lulu?
    Leona
    Taric

    That will give you plenty to choose from without getting bored of one. I always roll Nunu w/ Kog or Vayne, Leona w/ Corki...mostly Sona (w/ arcade skin) for just about anything else...but its nice to have options.


    As far as runes go...I'm really partial to Armor reds, Armor yellows, MR/level blues, and GP/10 quints. You could argue flat Armor quints for Leona, but that would require another rune page that I simply do not have b/c I play just about every role...my 10 are already taken.

    Yeah, I like mixing up which support I use. Soraka is usually the one I love to play. Sona is the support I will be getting after Nami since Sona was the first character I've played and I loved it.

    Galio is insane in the end game. I have on multiple occasions killed 3 guys at once with his ult when we were all 16+. Yeah, he is my go to when I am tired of playing a pure caster.

    I know. Hence the "It doesn't work too well against people who know what they're doing." Muffin would melt everytime he tried to Chain, his Shields lasted a grand total of like 2 seconds and would block 1 spell, and he even missed quite a few bindings.
