So, you want to carry solo queue games as a support?

Get Banner of Command...

Slide its Active in any lane, while you keep enemies busy by pressuring objectives like Baron or other lanes, and watch your Giant siege minion take down 2 turrets and an inhib.

No, but seriously, just won my 10th game in a row using supports. Last game I played with Sona and we were about to lose, since we got aced at Baron.

Lucky for us, I used BoC's active before going Baron, and while everyone was busy killing each other, my minions managed to get an Inhib and both Nexus turrets.

I've found success using it so you may want to try it out and fit it somewhere on your build.
Im not that high up (Silver I) but well, its something.

Happyscrub's league of legends rank is higher than 95% gamefaqs posters. This is why gamefaqs jealous of him. That's why they troll him. So sad, So bad, so mad.

Maybe you didn't get it right XD
it was RANKED.
Why would I post this if I only won at normals?

I tend to do all my..que'ing in general as support. At what point do you get this item? Anything in particular with it?

Actually, I'm definitely gonna do this. My usual build route, boots of mobility, the enchantment that makes minions move faster....hmm..

Ya, except the only problem is if it is met with a relatively sized minion wave, it is always targeted first and dies. The cooldown on it is 3 minutes, so if you want to get full benefits, buy early and use it lots. It can be buffed with nunu's bloodboil which is always fun too.

Whenever I buy it, it just doesn't seem to cut it, although I do invest in it some games, it's just not as gamebreaking as you claim it to be...

When exactly do you buy this? I would think that buying that item pretty much puts you way far behind in buying other important items that your team may need. I mean are you basically playing a gambit that this thing will work?

Eh, I'd rather have more actual team fight presence than rely on a gimmick.

I would actually take promote on Soraka all the time in S2, simply for the cheese that would usually net me a turret or two every game simply by enemies having terrible map presence. But generally, all it actually did was create huge creep bumps that minions didn't get kills on, meaning that when someone did go take care of the push, they got a massive amount of farm.

Want to know how to actually carry as support? Do your job and babysit your carry. Peel for them. I can't tell you how many fights I have completely won as the support simply because I had the patience to save my combo for whoever tried to fight my AD.
