[MOBA DOBA] League of Legends. Gold investment is the new meta.

League of Legends is a DoTA (Defense of the Ancients) style game made by some of the people that worked on DoTA Allstars. It's free to play; but, includes augmentations that you can buy with real money or in-game points.

Get on the G&T vent to play with us (list at bottom), the vent info is stickied at the top of the forum.

There's a ton of info on the game, and I don't want to reinvent the wheel. So, check out:
leagueoflegends.com, the game database provided by Riot (who make the game).
leaguecraft.com, there are a lot of fan sites out there with general information and builds. This is just one; and, it's kinda slow as shit. Regardless of where you look for builds keep in mind, most of them make assumptions that are not clearly conveyed and there are a lot that are just plain bad. Tread lightly.
KillerCodeMonkey's wiki, add your brilliant shit to it.
Game mechanic shit, stuff like how attacks and magic and fuck work.
Rune break-dancing, good info about what runes you should buy.

IMPORTANT THINGS TO NOTE
THE MOTHER FUCKING CODE
The new code was posted about a page back. It's L R L R D D U U 3 4. It works.

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!

    I build 9/0/21 masteries, CDR blues, and Locket/Shroud/Treads to get to the 40% CDR cap. If the match continues I start looking for AP (even Will of the Ancients is okay on her), but Innervating Locket gives her so much regeneration and laning presence that I always rush it.

    I tried running a sort of support fiddlesticks last night. It sort of, vaguely worked.

    Since your main goals are "dark wind a group" "ult a group" and "fear an individual and drain him, then run from the group" it seemed like support sort of made sense.

    No. The correct way to fiddle is to jungle and then CAWCAWCAWCAW onto their team every chance you get, which is more often because you always have blue buff and can permanently jungle for freeeeeee.

    Buh-wha? Sona has zero use for AD. Power chord's strength is based off her level and does magic damage. Deathfire and then AP Sona is pretty much the way to go after getting a locket/boots, with a glacial shroud when you can for CDR/a little more survivability.

    I dislike tanky Sona because there's not much point in surviving if you're incapable of healing and blasting (and going AP will get you gold very, very fast, so you can get that late-game armor more easily if need be). Sona's an enormous threat even from the back if her AP is hefty, especially if the rest of your team is mostly physical and the enemy team has been building around that. With a competent team by your side her w/e is enough to get you out of trouble as long as you keep a couple bodies between you and the enemy team.

    Then don't be a dumbass and be sure to keep your distance? Sona's heal is incredibly weak if you don't put at least some AP on there. 140 hp is nothing late game. Every time I've gone tank Sona I've been a little safer, sure, but it's useless because my support is gimped. Sona should be in back anyway, since part of what makes her so annoying is her ability to help her entire team recover and leave team fights as soon as they want and come back stronger before the other team can recover. Enemy tries to chase after I e my team away out of range? Whoops, my team is suddenly back at almost-full strength because I'm healing for a ton every couple seconds, you get a crescendo in your face and the three almost-dead guys you were chasing to kill a second ago have their health back and are pounding your face in while you're stunned.

    Maybe I'll change my tune as I get better and start playing better people, but right now AP Sona is being too effective for me to try anything else.

    This is key. Sona is fast as fuck, considering you can just spam your speed boost constantly, and since you're obviously running an innervating locket, your speed boost is ALSO A HEAL. With that speed, you should hardly ever be getting caught.

    Once she gets a locket and boots it is nearly impossible to catch Sona if she starts running and you're not already close. That's why those are always, always my first two items. Once her E is fully leveled it is impossible to catch Sona and the two people of her choice.

    You do have to play defensively, and always be aware of the other team, but Sona's support, she's not supposed to go toe-to-toe with other champs. If you want to survive Poppy and Olaf tearing out of nowhere and wailing on your ass be Mundo or something. Every champ has something hard for them to deal with, part of playing them well is making sure you're not in that situation.

    If the other team doesn't have a single chaser, then I guess the "if you're not a dumbass" approach works.

    If I'm by myself as Sona, with a tanky build without much AP, and Poppy and Olaf come screaming out of the jungle and nail me, I've succeeding in delaying my inevitable death for a few seconds. What am I going to do, fight back? Really?

    If you want to be support you sort of have to accept that you can't deal with every scenario and play accordingly. If the enemy team has a good chasing champ and I don't know where they are, you bet your ass I'm keeping away from the jungle unless someone else is between me and it.

    I do understand where you're coming from, as Sona is so squishy, but tanky Sona is just so damned useless that living longer isn't worth it if I can't do anything with my extra lifespan.

    You don't build straight tank, that's silly

    But there is a bit of an alternative, such as RoA/Rylais/etc

    That way you get both AP and survivability!

    A nice thing about locket is that it does give you a fair chunk of health too. I'm not saying that getting a RoA afterwards isn't a bad idea, but "build a tank" is not the same as "don't rush locket" is not the same as "don't get AP"

    Locket already gives you lots of HP and mana and the absurd health/mana regen every time you cast, so I generally don't shoot for Rylais. Slow is nice, but my Q will only get 15% since it;s multi. ROA's AP is nice, but locket+sorcerer's boots is almost as much gold as a ROA and the spell penetration is beast early on before people get a lot of resist. If I really want protection, i'd rather shoot for a glacial shroud and get armor/CDR so I can be even more spammy (especially since CDR affects her passive 2-second universal CD).

    I don't really like archangel's as much on Sona anymore tbh, but man, if you got a ton of goddess tears and sat back spamming to max the mana you get from them, and then converted them? Hilarity.

    Of course, you'd die if anyone managed to get two hits in, but you'd be healing people for full and one-shotting the enemy.

    Of course, you'd die if anyone managed to get two hits in, but you'd be healing people for full and one-shotting the enemy.

    archs doesn't work that way.

    You will get a maximum of 1000 extra mana from the passives of any combination of tear/arch/manamune, no matter how many you stack or when you convert them or whatever.

    Tear/Arch/Manamune are all unique passives for their mana adding

    You can stack all of them

    Because if they share the mana pool that's dumb and never really explained anywhere since Brutalizer/Ghostblade stack

    Really? Huh, didn't know that. I assumed it stacked since they were technically different items.

    *edit* according to Lol forums Elldren is right. That's...lame.

    archangels is a good item on sona, to be fair.

    This is like that one Garen who stacked 6 sunfires against my AP heavy team. Good idea executed hilariously wrong.

    i think i was in that game

    I don't like Archangel's on Sona because I'm going to be taking Clarity anyway for early game, and locket will help keep my mana going anyway. The AP boost is nice, but essentially that's all I'm getting from it because I don't need the mana by the time it really gets strong. I'd rather get a deathfire for quick AP/CDR/Damage or something.
