About Morgana's ganking Ult.

#1Ky_KiskyPosted 4/27/2013 6:34:39 AM
I've read many guides telling me her spell bind is a terrible starter for ganks.

Everyone tells me to Ult, Bind, Pool, Ignite + a few auto attacks maximum damage.

I do it other way. I do Bind, Pool, Ult, the ignite.

Her pool lowers their magic resist so wouldn't you want it BEFORE you ult? Makes sense?

The recommended combo doesn't have any magic damage to follow up. It's even after the final binding.

Am I missing something here?

YES I KNOW, IF I MISS THE BINDING, I AM SCREWED. But this is about damage, not skillshot.

yes, that way has more damage. but ult first is more reliable

If your really skilled you should pool while the binding is traveling to them..

That way you get the first tick of magic reduction in before burst damage of the binding..

One is guaranteed, the other is not.

Ult first makes sure they cant dodge your Q.

Q first makes sure I don't miss my engage. If I can't nail them with my Q, I back off...

If they already see me and running away, then I would ult first.

I guess I am using Morg like an assisan type char. Shooting bindings out of bushes and following up with combo.

once you reach a higher skill level, landing those Q's on opponents becomes very unreliable, making r first the obvious choice

Like I said.. If I am going for total gank, I'd just walk up and Ult.

But sometimes I just hide in bushes aiming my Q.

Ult first more reliable as you climb the ranks. Morgana's bind is a very slow projectile that is fairly easy to dodge most of the time at higher levels of play
