- When a wave is pushed to your tower, help your ADC by hitting
caster minions once. This allows the minion to take one hit from the
tower and the let your ADC last hit. If you win a fight and there are no
enemies in the bot lane, help kill minions to push the wave to their
tower before you go back to base. This will reset the lane and put a
little damage on their turret.
- Don't use all of your sight stone wards when not needed. If you
are being pushed hard, there really isnt a reason for you to get back to
lane and ward their tri bush, the river bush and the lane bush while
you are on your turret. If/when you are able push back a little, then
you can ward as needed. Also, after getting your sight stone, you may
not want to necessarily upgrade your yellow and/or buy sweeper every
time. If your team fails to help you ward, it may be best for you to
upgrade to blue trinket and at least ward all bushes on your side.
Keeping the yellow during the early lane phase can let you stay in lane a
bit longer with up to five wards available.
- As a melee engaging support, let your ADC know your intentions.
Don't randomly E with Leona and leave your ADC behind with no chance to
follow up. Ping the target and ping again to notify that you are
engaging. Don't Blitz hook a Leona or Nautilus into your ADC. If you do
hook them, try and grab them away from your carry.
- Stop taking unnecessary poke damage. Don't just stand around,
especially early levels, and get poked down while having no way to trade
damage back. If you are melee support and your ADC is not helping poke
back, you really shouldn't be taking Cait autos. Also, don't feel
obligated to take all damage for your ADC. Let them take some of the
- If you are playing vs an Akali, Shaco, Rengar, Teemo, Talon, Kha'zix
you should always have a pink ward on hand. There is no greater
pleasure than having a Rengar's ult absolutely nullified by you dropping
a pink as soon as you see his ! pop up and having him instantly "WTF" deleted in a team fight.
- Don't die in vain. If you have to die, make sure it was worth.
Don't die for a pink ward. Don't die trying to last hit a dragon when
you are outnumbered. Don't die for a mate if they are probably going to
die anyways. GTFO.
- Be your team's mini map. Ping when you see their jungler appear.
Ping MIA laners. Ping for help if its 4-5 bot. Ping engages before you
do them. Ping your retreats before you leave. Ask your team to help you
ward. Ask your team to each get pink wards. Ping your team back if they
are over staying a fight. Also, let your ADC know your intentions at all
times. When I really need to go to base and they are still trying for
CS, I sometimes stand right next to them and press B so that they 100%
know I am leaving them. Some people get tunnel vision in farming and may
not have seen you hop in that bush and go back.
- When returning to lane, consider coming up through your jungle
path towards your blue everytime in the chance you could be of some help
in a midlane gank, warding of your jungle or a dragon skirmish. Also,
when moving between lanes, take a route through your jungle if the river
isnt warded. You never know what lurks in the fog.
- Consider roaming mid lane or river if there is good chance to get
a kill. Make sure to spam ping your ADC to be careful and ping your
movement intentions. I even type in chat to ask them to let the enemy
push a bit so that you can roam/gank for a minute or two.
- For items, it is never a bad choice to take utility and CDR items
that go with your build type. For instance, AP supports consider taking
items like Athlenes, Banner of Command, Ardent Censer. All provide AP
and some sort of utility for your team. For melee tanks and such,
Locket, Frozen Heart, Randuins. Zz'Rot can be built on all support
champs late in the game.
