IF YOU'RE GOING TO SPEND REAL CASH DOLLA MONIES FOR CHAMPIONS

Drop $20 for the Retail Box (Amazon, Best Buy, GameSpot, Newegg, Target, and Wal-Mart typically have this) It gives you $10 in Riot Points, take those, then buy $10 in Riot Points and $5 in Riot Points. Spend all of them on the second champ pack.

That's $35 for 40 champs permanently unlocked; none of the post-40 have ever been in a bundle AFAIK.

Q: How can I get champions and save money?
A: You won't have to spend a cent if you simply play games and earn enough IP to buy them all. If, however, you wish to hasten the process you may buy champions with real money. The most cost effective way to buy champions is by purchasing the two bundles on offer.
For $45 you can buy 6380 Riot Points, which are used to buy champions and skins. 3900 of those points gets you the Digital Collector's Pack, which contains 20 champions and includes 1380 Riot Points (huh?). If you were to buy the champions individually it would cost 37800 IP or 9620 RP. The Digital Collector's pack can also be bought in stores or online as a boxed copy, which may save you a significant amount of money.
3410 Riot Points gets you the champions bundle. This contains some more expensive champions. Bought individually they would cost 60750 IP or 14350 RP (ish).
This leaves you with 450 RP, enough to buy yourself a single skin!

Valiantine has a lovely spreadsheet that you can add your summoner name to.

    picking up the madred's bloodrazor discussion from the last thread again

    when playing Kog I always rush madred's first because of the good synergy with his w, however it seem that a lot of people don't find madred's to be worth it as a starting item. In one of the more popular guide it is suggested to get maledy first, wit's end second and bloodrazor third because you get 50% higher attack speed (instead with just maledy and bloodrazor) heath% damage isn't so great early on, and maledy + wit's end cost about as much as a bloodrazor. However I do feel that getting bloodrazor so late could hurt my end-game (especially when w is on cooldown), which is why I haven't really tried that yet. What do you think, is it worth it skipping madred's at the start?

    Another idea would be to skip bloodrazor altogether and go for ad/as/crit items instead, since my w already gives me the effect 1 1/2 bloodrazor, technically. Should I consider this?

    to get maledy first, wit's end second and bloodrazor third

    Malady first is a solid build but for the second item I would use the enemy team comp to decide. If they have champions with a lot of mana than get the Wit's end second. If they have champions with a lot of health than get the bloodrazor second.

    Sounds like an unending resource.

    Also he would be the second boner based champ after Jarvan.

    Just cuz I need a post in the new thread:


    today I got matched with a team of four people who spoke entirely in moon-runes.
    Shen had a solo lane and was somehow level seven when everyone else was thirteen or higher.

    This shen still managed to call his MIAS somehow, despite not speaking another word of English and not knowing how to play the game.

    I smiled.

    I just played with an AP Sion who played like an AD Sion.

    I have never seen someone feed so confidently. He'd just walk right up to Jarvan and Shen. And then when he knew Olaf, Jarvan and Shen were all in a bush, he'd go and check.

    I wanted to cry. Saved him a few times, but there's only so much a Fiddle can do.

    Also the other team had an AD Zilean who absolutely manhandled our Katarina. Grabbed a wits end and a SotD and everything. So many clocks. So fast.

    Trynd's really are the rudest.

    Also happy every time this thread comes around and it isn't Moba Doba.

    And has anyone else noticed that Guardsman Bob plays extremely passively post lane phase? Every time he picks Malphite on his stream I feel bad for his teammates, because he has little sense for initiation. He lanes like a boss, and he does work during teamfights as the assorted dps goons he plays, but he is super timid as a tank.

    Last thread someone was asking for anti-tanky DPS and my response is Trundle.

    His Q saps their attack damage (DPS) and his ult saps a percentage of their armor/mr/health (tanky). This is the perfect counter to tanky DPS.

    So I still don't know what the hell AP / AD mean. I even looked on the one link in the op to the list of terms and like half a page down someone mentions them but describes them backwards to what I thought.

    Also I took some advice to watch some streams and had some 2200 guy start trolling his team because he was pissed off the ashe wanted to solo mid (he was Jarvan and he let his morgana lane mate get pushed hard because he was just wondering around being a dick because "ashe needed to learn a lesson because he shouldn't last pick solo mid ashe" or some elitest BS. The team would have actually won had he not been a giant dick and streamed it for the whole internet.

    Then I watched guardsman bob playing as PAX JAX and I got depressed because if I had that skin I would play Jax all the time but I can't make it to pax and $40 on ebay seems stupid.

    yeah I think his problem was more that the last pick on the team (therefore lowest ELO) shouldn't try to call solo mid ashe.

    Douchebaggery like that is never acceptable. That said, if you are the last pick in ranked and you pick a carry, that is a serious breach of general ettiquette in high end ranked (most of the time). Last picks are for counter-picking certain champs (making sure you've got a stun for Kat, etc.) or filling out your team (the last 2 picks almost always are tank and jungler), and odds are they already had a good mid picked and that ashe was just like fuck you I do what I want.

    Ap is ability power. It increases the damage of (most) abilities. Ad is attack damage, it makes your auto attacks hit harder and some abilities as well. The way you can tell is, when you look in an abilities tooltip, after the damage or heal number there will be a number in parentheses. If this number is green the ability scales off of AP, if it is red or orange (looks red to me) it scales off of AD. Both AP and AD will increase the damage your auto attacks do to turrets (and inhibs I think).
