Razor Sharp

Razor Sharp

Obtained from: Smiting Crimson Raptor

Effect: Grants true sight for 90 seconds (1 min 30 sec)

Usage:
  • Clear wards protecting enemy mid-laner.
  • Clear wards around your red side jungle if no gank opportunities are available
  • Clear wards around the enemy blue side jungle if you know their jungler is top side and you don't see any ganking opportunities.
  • Clear bottom side river bush, in front of dragon pit, and/or bottom side tri-bush to pave the way for future ganks.

It doesn't last long enough to do all those things so pick one and stick with it.

Note unlike Sweeping Lens it doesn't disable wards or invisible traps FU Teemo!!! So just know anyone paying attention to the mini-map will see you taking out the ward or if you don't use attack move to kill the trap you can set them off by accidentally walking into them.

A plus side of it is that kicks on when you are near a ward and off. You can miss a pink ward in a bush if use

Toshabi Is Creating Guides

Good Morning to all my dear MOBAFailians.


I've been reflecting on the subject of League for quite some time, and I think that it's about time I share my insight and thoughts of competitive ways of how I go about this game. There have been a few guides I've outlined in the past, but now, I believe it's time to cash on in on them and show you the way of how Toshabi plays League of Legends.


I know I've been the harshest critic of guide building as a whole, but after having an enlightening discussion with PotatisFarfar, I feel like I've a new way to look about it all. Guides being built will be as followed:


Twitchy ****: How to get away with legal rape via the Jungle rat.
Viktorioius: How a hidden OP is now recognized by esport/LoL pro ***s.

Support/Jungle Main Looking For Team!

Hey again Summoners!

I am a Silver II Support/Jungle main looking for a team to join this season on a quest to climb the Ranked 5s ladder. I climbed from Bronze IV to Gold V in Season 3, just high enough to get the Victorious Elise Skin. In Season 4, I climbed to Gold again, this time in fewer games, before leaving the game due to issues with my education. This season, I plan to climb as high as I can, and, on that note, I'd like to touch on what I have to offer a team:

I am dedicated to improving every game, all while keeping the atmosphere fun and light, but remain unafraid to speak my mind. My item build depends on the game at hand. I love to communicate, and I keep track of buff, jungle camp, Summoner Spells, and ability cooldowns. "Elo Hell" is a mindset better neglected, and many of my close League friends agree that I have carried games from the two positions I main. I have participated in an amateur tournament, where we placed third overall (the winning game, they bann…

Three Year Anniversary

Hey there fellow Summoners!

I've been on MOBAFire for three years now, and I think it's about time I really jump in and embrace this community. It just so happens that this site was the first I joined when I started playing League of Legends, and, gazing back on my career, I am embarrassed at where I've come from.

But only a little! I've gone from the boy who thought support Taric was the strongest thing in the world (and it was, for a brief period back in Season 2) to someone who looks to improve with every game played -- whether it comes from learning a new role for a champion in Team Builder, practicing for Ranked queues in Normal Draft, or going straight to the heart of #YOLO_QUEUE itself! I have gathered a lot of knowledge over my years, adjusted my playstyle, and grown as a Summoner.

It is my will to mark this anniversary with greater productivity, as I mean to finally get around to publishing more of the guides I have saved as drafts here -- which, of course, means preppin…

Zz'Rot Portal

Hi everyone,

I've been doing some preliminary looking at the newer item Zz'Rot Portal and I must say it looks exceedingly good on Nasus as a split pushing strategy. The damage gain on Voidspawn will reach upwards of 400-500 and when combined with Nasus high tower damage becomes ridiculous. Also, the speed increases help his map positioning and chasing. I'll be doing some testing on this soon but I did want to see what others experience with this item has been.

Do you like it? Why or why not?

In what situations has it worked or won the game for you?

Here is a map someone made of good locations to place the portal: Portal Locations

My road on ranked!1

Hey All!

That's right, I'm back! (alas no, not with a brand new track) And I'm hitting the ranked ladder to get myself back to challenger! You may better know me as ViRusx or SKT1 Winnie the Pooh, but I'm here today on my freshly leveled smurf to kick some serious butt! xD

Equip with my new main vladimir, elo hell will be more like elo smell ya later! (get it guys, that's a blue reference!?) Which is funny, because vladimir is actually a RED champion! (Another character from pokemon). However, this game does not contain any pokemon (except for maybe the yordles, NO PUNS INTENDED GUYS!) I should probably put a funny warning in the title of this blog update xD xD

Anyway friends, remember to check back for future updates, I start my ranked journey in approximately t-minus 60 minutes! I'll see you all on the rift summoners!

xoxo gossip girl

Possibly the worst Warwick the world has ever seen.

So, today I was playing with this Warwick (I have Noodle 9 MMR) on my team, and I swear to god he was the worst player I've ever seen. I've played Intro bots on a second account and seen people feed Intro bots (Not on purpose), and he was about down to their level stupidity, but I would say it's worse in his case because he ISN'T new to the game. He had a Bronze icon from S3, and claimed to be have been playing since S1. I don't know about that, but I know he's been playing Ranked since S3 at least, and was at least Bronze 5 in S3. He was Bronze 5 this season so far, too.

Now, let's just go in chronological order of his idiotic statements, ideas, and actions. Anything he says is in red, anything I say is in light blue, anything a random teammates says is in green, and anything an enemy says is in orange.

Words (Meiyjhe update 17)

Hello boys n girls,
.
.
Have you ever wondered why it is "boys and girls", but "ladies and gentlemen"? It is always like: Female first because that is a social standard, keep the door open for a woman, take off the jacket of a lady before you take off your own and whatever. Yet when we look at youth it seems like we don't care.

DOES THAT MEAN THAT ALL BOYS ARE WHITE PRIVILEGE?!?!?!

Thoughts on Patch 5.5

Greetings and salutations! With the new patch being announced sometime yesterday, and the rundown having aired today, I'd figure I'd get into the habit of posting my thoughts and opinions on the new patch when the rundown rears its face. So let's jump right into it. With Bard coming around the corner, a new AP item and a change to the juggernaut enchant to something else, this will be an interesting patch to say the least.

First off, let's hit on the items!

Bami's Cinder
  • Made into the game - I gotta admit, this is kind of a cool item. It manipulates Sunfire Cape and is basically the minor variant of it. I think it's neat, now you don't need to save gold to go straight into Sunfire Cape, and instead have SFC minor. Let the time come when we find out whether or not this is a good change.

Shyvana

as shyv vs liss there are basically 3 options you can take lvl1. you should take a camp and start dorans then back after a camp and tp to lane and then bully. You will outscal so just build to do that. Ideally you end up with the enemy junglers red/blue buff depending on what side you are on.

The other option is that you start boots and just go right to lane. you do such stupid damage and move so fast to ranged champs. every time they use a kite ability not on you, then you go on them. and if u manage to take the enemy red, which one gold i feel like should happen 90% of the time your on blue side then you'll dunk them so hard its ridiculous.

When they get items and start to scale this is when u start buying wards and proxy. With proper vision you can pull a lot of pressure and survive or trade kills or if your a beast kill and live. Remember here if you can chunk the enemy jungler and then ulti away you've won. You made the enemy jungler back and let yours keep farming or pressuring…
