    I'm having issues with my item order as Ahri.

    I think I'm trying to build DFG too early, because there's a point where I'm stuck saving up for the Needlessly Large Rod. Any suggestions?

    Ususally I open with the boots, buy a Doran's ring when I can, then upgrade to Sorcerer's shoes, then start building the dfg.

    It all depends on how well the lane is going and how well you're farming (minions or champs). You really don't ever want to go back to base and come back to lane without getting items because you risk putting yourself at an item disadvantage (obviously). I usually start with a ring (boots start is okay too in certain match ups, but usually the ring is better) and if I end up having to go back to base with say.. 1400g, then I take a look at the match up and how the lane is going. Am I getting out traded against a magic user? Then a Chalice is probably a good buy at that point. Am I being out traded by an Attack Damage user? Then I'd probably get a Seeker's Armguard. Am I doing enough damage and they seem to slip away slightly? Then I'd get sorc shoes. If things were going even, I'd probably get the fiendish codex and another doran's ring. YOU NEVER WANT TO GO BACK TO LANE WITHOUT POTIONS. One small misstep (even if you're winning) and you could lose control over the lane while you sit at low health just trying not to die while staying in XP range.

    Hope that helps some; unfortunately, League is a game of circumstance, and while it's nice to fall into a rhythm of buying the same items each time, sometimes its just not possible to. Smile

    Okay, thanks Smile

    One of the most lolzy mistakes I was making when I began wtih Ahri was thinking that I wouldn't need pots because she has spell vamp XD

    Back then I'd just Q minions as they came, so I'd get her passive ready easily but I'd burn through my mp quickly, which meant I was chugging mp pots. Since then I've learned to mostly use Ahri's Q to poke enemy champs away from minions (if I manage to kill a few of his minions with the return, even better Smile) while only last hitting.

    Last game I outplayed a Gragas simply by playing more conservatively than him early on. He couldn't approach to do much last hitting (mostly it only happened when my minions got closer to his turret) because I'd chase him away with Ahri's Q (god I love the True Damage), so he had to rely on his own Q to kill any of my minions.

    Meanwhile I could freely kill his own minions since I didn't have to get close to him to do it. He actually kept up reasonably well in kills but he'd run out of mp too quickly to keep using his Q (he had to keep spamming his self-buff to heal off the damage my Q was doing, while my passive allowed me to do the same for free :'D). I edged a small lead, which became a big lead, which became me ulting at him, charming him, and bursting him down every time he got close.

    Sadly, the top and bot lanes were sucking terribly so my team still lost. Downer >:

    He at least kept me busy enough that I couldn't risk leaving mid to help either lane.

    I finally played some Akali again and god, it's been too long.

    Hit level 6 and I just roam the jungles, striking down enemy champs within seconds and ducking back under cover. I can only guess how paranoia-riffic it is to know the enemy has a level 6 Akali somewhere in the jungle.

    Its almost as scary as having a drunk fat man be gone from mid too long. I mean when he can literally belly slam through walls of trees you better watch yourself

    I got some practice in as Leon yesterday.

    She's excellent when she's got a good team to work with who'll go "Leona's engaging, kill her target! >D" Otherwise she can't do a WHOLE lot.

    That moment when you don't know whether to feel proud for performing the best of your team, but disappointed with your team for stinking. It was Lee Sin who fed Ashe. He was playing against her in solo top and somehow got facerolled. I was playing against Kassadin.

    To comment on your end game comment: Annie is indeed a very viable support, and was played heavily by top teams in the LCS for a really long time at the beginning of the season. I honestly don't understand how a lee sin fed an ashe so hard (in top lane, especially); I mean, as a champion he does take some getting used to to play, but holy crap. Lol

    Looks like it was a matter of roam when it came to you and kass. There really wasn't a reason for you to have a void staff that early, the only person with real MR was voli. If you're going explosion ahri your second item is usually a deathcap, since you'll be targeting damage dealers that don't build much mr or have any mr from runes/masteries. That 35% from void staff was probably cutting into mr values ranging from 30-55. For a little less moneys you could have got morello's, which gives CD, mana, slightly more ap, and heal reduction for voli/ashe/nami rather than ~9-18 mr shaving.

    IMO Noc should have swiftness boots for fed Ashe (with hurricane especially), Ashe should give her essence reaver to sivir. Both of those last whispers were bad buys. I've never seen a support nami itemize like that, but she did have the funds of the enemy team since hers was ahead (and more than voli).

    And really, saying don't feed is just mean. People don't need you to validate their lost lane, they're probably frustrated as is.

    Yeah, I learned that afterward XD

    I didn't know at the time that Annie could play as supp, I just figured she was a mid.

    And yeah, I was kinda a jerk to Lee Sin, but I was kinda frustrated ^^;

    Thanks for the advice, Ippy Smile

    And thus Sona dropped to rock-bottom support tier.

    Let's take the squishiest champ in League and make it so her buffs only apply within range 300. Then let's make it so the buffs themselves last a very short time. She needs to be spamming her spells MORE with these changes, but they also increased cooldown times and mp costs!

    Not to mention this encourages clustering your team up, which is a good way to get a pentakill.

    It's always a nice experience when your team gets utterly wurfed by the enemy team and, come post-game, they're very cool about it. They all honored us, lol, so I gave a few honorable foes in return.

    My team left pretty quick, but I don't generally angst about a loss when it's clear my team was outmatched (usually it's stuff like my team should be winning but nobody will work together, or somebody leaves and we lose because of it that pisses me off) so I stuck around and chatted with them a while. I shoulda friended a few of them :/

    Ugh, had the WORST luck with teams today.

    Game 1: Person instalocks Riven (I wanted to play her) and feeds enemy Fiora hard. Fiora proceeds to gank the hell out of mid and bot, we lose. Post-game Fiora tells me Riven wasn't even using skill combos. I was playing Cait since everything but adc was taken. I don't do that fantastic, but me and Supp Annie nearly win bot before Fiora snowballs.

    Game 2: I'm Riven against Cho and Yi top. Jax goes top with me, feeds Yi hard because he keeps rushing them both. Bot also feeds pretty hard.

    Game 3: Vel'Koz and Nunu bot team feed enemies hard, Vel'Koz never once uses his ult, Nunu doesn't bother buying better gear, Vel'Koz eventually leaves. We almost won this one, though.

    Game 4: Actually wins because I had a good team.

    Game 5: Renekton top feeds Tyrn hard then leaves. Teemo mid has a lot of lag and Ryze feeds on him. Kayle bot rushes Triforce and falls behind in items otherwise.

    Blegh D:
