    Kennen is amazing at poking, can farm all day due to Energy and has an amazing teamfight ultimate.
    His damage is pretty sustained though, nothing too bursty unless you get a gold lead.

    Does he work better mid or top? (Or both?) AP or AD? He seems really damn interesting and fun, hoping he gets on free week soon!

    Also I tried the Lux skin on PTR, her walking animation is really awkward... but so is Garen's I guess. :|

    AP for mid, he used to be a good counter for top, but they nerfed his range quite a bit so I dunno if it's still worth it.
    AD is for people who want to be special snowflakes.

    Kennen is the typical "owns melee, gets owned by ranged"-champion. Kinda like Vlad. He's a great counter to melee though.

    So torn. Currently on 8k, I really want to buy Thresh so I can add to my support collection but I also really want Draven so I have another ADC just incase the situation arises. Also so many other champs to possibly buy.

    He is still fine top and can honestly go mid if you want. Either way he is safe from ganks as long as you have your E and aren't in a horrible spot. Makes life difficult for melee champions and has a good team fight. Downside to Kennen is you need your ult to be effective in a team fight and you cant really snowball your lane because you don't really burst people down from 100 to 0. You more likely poke them out of lane than to kill them unless they overstay.

    Never forget his roaming potential though. I would say it's better to roam bot than mid because he can stun both of them and the lane is longer. So you could recall and tell your jungler to hold top while you go bot for a gank or just run there from mid lane.

    I wonder is Nunu support'ish tank viable or not really since I'm looking into more support champions.
    Also any comments on Thresh support ability,since it seems quite fun in videos,but still wondering either to buy it and blow all IP's I have or rather wait until he's F2P.

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

    Nunu is one of the more popular supports currently. He will turn your ADC into a killing machine, can't be pushed out of lane easily and his mini-exhaust snowball is a bitch.
    Meh.

    I need help as well, i just started playing LoL for funzies while bored.

    I want a hero, preferably ranged (but not important), that has high mobility, and stacks AP.

    I'd like one that's decent at farming and good at ganking, right now i fell in love with katarina, but i'm sure that it's too easy to play for me. if a hero/champion is harder to play, i suppose there's a higher payoff if the skillcap is higher?

    If you're looking for high risk, high reward, ranged AP mobile champ... you can try Akali and Ahri to begin with.

    Akali isn't really ranged though, but she is a bundle of gap closers after level 6
    Meh.

    Katarina actually has a pretty high skill cap because the way her moves work, and the fact that she has resets, so you have to know when to go into a fight, and how to mop the fight up once you get your reset. It's not hard to play kat, but it's difficult to play her really well.

    I would maybe try kassadin. He has lots of mobility with his ult, and he can clear waves decently with his cone thing (don't remember the name). He is fairly weak before 6, but once he gets his ult he gets a decent power spike. He can roam very easily, which sounds like something you want. Kassadin is melee though.

    You could also consider Ahri. She is not a very easy champion as most of her damage and utility comes from skill shots. She has excellent mobility while you are using your ultimate, but outside of that she doesn't have much. I would try to play either of them during free weeks if you can, or watch some youtube clips or something. She is ranged

    Love Lux but hate Ahri... Both are fairly reliant on Skillshots aswell :P

    Quick question, is it bad to only like AP champions (Lux support... Evelynn <3 as my melee for now, but i seriously need to branch out some more)? Im not sure why, i just hate stacking attack damage/attack speed feels so automatic when it goes to fighting/playing the game

    p.s. also have a friend that wants to be a ganker... He bought Evelynn after i got a penta but she needs a little more decision making to play, he lacks that a bit

    Hm an easy to play AP hero you say? Why not Annie, she doesnt have such a high skillcap, really nice CC for your team and shes only 450 IP! Just remember to last hit some with your Q to build up your stun! (after 4 spellcasts your next spell will stun the target)

    I wanted one that's not easy to play mate. i want high risk, high reward as somebody also replied to me 3 posts above yours.

    I was looking at both Ahri, Kassadin and Akali (those were actually my 3 favorites after reading the skills of every "assasin" in the game). Currently i was planing to buy Ahri first, then Kassadin and last Akali.

    I haven't investigated the prices yet, but if 1 is cheaper than the others i'll buy that one first. Thanks for your help

    - Though, if somebody could tell me exactly what "Season 3" means, i'd greatly appreciate it. Is it just reset of ladders and ratings, or new champions/items? i read the patch notes and didn't see anything big except that it's apparently not based on Elo anymore? My summoner is still just level 7 so i really don't know if that'll affect me yet in any way :P


    EDIT: I'm gonna take a look at Annie though, thanks for the reply, and indeed, she costs so little =)

    Season 3 won't change annything for you its mostly yust a new ranking system. All the big changes to the jungle and items has already been in for a while now.

    You are only lv 7 id advise you to simply save your ip and try the free week champs so you can get an idea of wo you really want.
    that beign said:

    Of the 3 champs you mentioned id go with Ahri she suits what you want most. She is ranged and relies alot on skillshots, she can roam very well also brings some cc to the team.
    Downside to her is that she is more expensive thenn the others.

    Akali is mellee alto it doesn't matter much post 6 great at killing and getting away but lacks the versatility ahri brings

    Kassadin is more of a counter pick, not very hard to play either, he is also mellee ( and i personaly find him yust boring )

    Not really, it's that just once you spent 10 minutes and already know all the mechanics as much as you can know, you need something to improve. But this thing applies to everyone. It's like saying that Garen is high skill cap or perhaps Xin Zhao, lolz. It's more like the game is not as easy as people pretend it to be.

    Ahri has pretty decent mobility without her ultimate through fox fire. But the spell is a little bit more complicated than it looks. Orianna and Syndra both have very awesome mobility, that is just hard to use.

    Viktor is very decent too, though there is currently a problem that his Q/W items have shitty stats.

  19. #3419
    I'll just hope that either Ahri or Akali or Kassadin are free next week, fingers crossed! :>

    Available Champions: prntscr.com/rfob6

    Current most-used champions: Master Yi, Singed, Malphite, Vayne (In that order)

    What roles do you prefer: Mid, Top, ADC (In that order)

    Jungling: Sometimes goes well if people follow up my Malphite ganks well, sometimes terrible as I get wiped fast and feed the lane I'm ganking. Late game it's all about if my team follows up my ult or not.

    What are some Champions and abilities that you prefer: I like being able to escape easily, being able to deal high damage and being a bit tanky.
