What are the best Auras to get as a Support?

Obv Aegis with the Legion Aura but what else would be good to go with that?

Stark's fervor or w/e is a good one, and so is Will of teh ancients. Honestly, it really depends on your team comp.

Idealism is seeing potential. Pragmatism is seeing consequences.

Aegis upgrade, the Bulwark.
Twin Shadows.

If your team needs more offense.
Zeke's Herald
Will of the Ancients

Usually, always at least one person with Frozen Heart if it works on them. Hurts ADC's so bad.

There's far too much trash in the universe.

Auras are all designed for supports. Any would do, depending on the team comp. I tend to get Zeke's most of the time, and WotA if I have a couple of casters, since even AD spells benefit from spellvamp.

Zeke's Herald is pretty much garbage now. It used to make sense in team compositions that had two or more heavy auto-attackers, but now it's kind of useless. You should never, ever buy it.


Core aura items:

-Aegis of the Legion into Runic Bulwark
Do this if they have at least 2 AP's in their team or some snowballing AP like Eve, Kat, Ryze etc.

-Locket of the Iron Solari
Works with anything, but shield has a smaller range than Aegis Aura, equally effective versus both AD and AP teams, shields OP.
Especially effective if you have a close-range team that prefers to fight in tight spaces. Think something like having Amumu, Rumble, Fiddlesticks or Karthus in a team. This is the kind of situation that Locket shines in. Force a jungle fight, get in their face, AoE-melt them and shield your entire team in the process. It's really easy to pull off if people aren't braindead.

-Shurelya's
Gotta get that movespeed for your team. Movespeed is king.

-Shard of True Ice
Must-have if you have a heavy initiator in your team, like Leona, Malph, Wukong, Alistar etc.

-Will of the Ancients
Get this if you have a poke-heavy team, like Jayce, Kha'Zix, Nidalee, Cait etc.
Nothing better than being able to poke your enemy down while healing yourself.
Spellvamp works on any and all spells that don't have on-hit effects, so any spam-happy team composition should benefit from it.
People often forget this item is quite good on supports.

-Captain (boots enchantment)
Yes. People forget this exists. But if you're someone like Alistar or Leona, you want to have Captain on you.
It's also pretty lulzy on Janna. You already give your team a global movespeed buff, Captain stacks with it. Although it's not recommended if you die in a nanosecond, only get it on Janna after items like Locket/Aegis/Bulwark.

-Frozen Heart
Core on Alistar and Leona.

You provided why every other item is viable, care to elaborate on why this isn't viable?

This is by far the best aura

Zeke's is still good if your lane is snowballing because the added dmg + life steal will make your lane snowball even harder.

Actually, since Wedge Antilles > Carriers, and Carriers = Instant win, then it should be Wedge Antilles > Instant win. He's just that good XD -PsionicDude
