Supporting in a post-LCS world

#1ArtosRCPosted 7/12/2013 2:22:06 AM
Given that the new supporting direction appears to be get boots2, Kage, and Philo and then mercilessly spam pinks and Oracle's on an unwanting map, when is it prudent to slap in a Locket, WotA, or Zeke's?

Boots2, kages and a philo? I mostly see sightstone+philo and then the pink ward barrage.

I've seen an equal mix of both. Even so, the question remains. I'm at a loss as to when to start building the aura item.

you build aura items when you see your gold is at 3500.

But that gets in the way of pink items.

Big items depend how much gold income you have. First an foremost for me is wards. Then gold income. If in having a great game ill usually pick up locket on leona. Iron solari to and all.

OGN side is basically sightstone rush, then buying 3 pinks + oracles, and filling out ruby > boots > kindlegem > mobas as you can.

I suppose that this is the state of the game in Season Three. One character really is the ward vending machine. And people wonder why lower-ranked players shy away from such excitement.

If supports were as strong as they could be instead of nerfbatted seven ways to Sunday, people might enjoy the position even without items. I guess that's a different topic entirely though.
