I mean, I start ouit frarie charm and 4pots.

I usually get 4pots every time I b.

this is keeping me from getting sstone sooner and my first big item until like 25-30mins in depending on how well we are doing.

is me getting all these wards a leak? should I get sstone first?

generally i buy 3-4 wards+1 pink every time i b(if i used them). If i have sightstone i get 2-3

you should still get philo stone your first or second back though, that way you get the g/10 and can upgrade it to a shurelyas or whatever you need, when you need it

pretty much, if your using the wards efficiently the vision only helps

After a philo, you probably want to rush a sightstone, maybe even a ruby sightstone. Once you have that, you'll still want pinks and even regular wards for places where you want permanent sight (dragon, tri bush if you're purple side, etc) and then just use sightstone wards for immediate sight. That way, you don't place a sightstone ward and accidentally get rid of an important ward.

I start faerie. 3 wards, 2 health pots. I grab Philo Stone and 2-3 wards on the first back to start the gp/10 asap, then next back is Sight Stone. After getting the Sight Stone I stop buying green wards on each back and get pink instead. From there I've got Philo and SStone, so next I get boots and 1-2 pink wards, then Ruby Sightstone, then whatever support items I feel I need. Regardless of who I play as support my first items are always philo > SStone > boots > RSStone, not buying pink wards until I get the first Sight Stone. I like to rush the Ruby Sightstone because the early health is helpful in lane, and that with pink wards lets me keep every possible gank route warded, dragon pink warded, and I have an extra to ward the enemy buff.

I probably buy 4-8 green wards and 10-30 pink wards per game.

I'm a little cheap when it comes to wards early game, but I do rush a SIght Stone after Philo and get the Ruby Stone after boots. I start off with fairie charm, 3 wards, and a mana and health pot. I usually have the mana biscuit and the 1 minute ward from the utility tree so that helps.

2-3 wards at most on every back. Make sure to have a pink ward ready to clear objectives or your jungle for later on.
Buying too many wards will delay your aura items and put you behind.

Contrary to popular opinion, rushing Sightstone is a good option if it's an even lane or you're ahead.

Rush Sightstone if you can. Generally, you only need to buy 1 ward every time you back, 2 if your opponent has brush control. Later on, if you have a SIghtstone upgraded, all you need really is either a Pink Ward every time you go to shop, or refresh your Oracles when it's down.

sightstone + 2 or ruby sightstone + 1 is the standard, the 1 should usually be a pink.

You can add a couple greens based on what the team vision is looking like and whether or not the enemy team has oracles or are aggressively pinking.

Sightstone+2 pinks. I don't even bother with oracles unless it's baron time. I like to pink dragon then use the two sightstones to keep trbrush and the mid jungle entrance warded.

I don't like starting with a pink ward but there'll be some matchups where I think the opponent will be aggressive about controlling tri-bush.

I think the math shows rushing sightstone is a more efficient use of gold.
