Summoner Spells

Recommended

Ignite
This has become more useful due to the changes to Exhaust and the added damage with GP's passive makes this quite effective.
Flash
It is good for juking and getting out of tight situations. This is more of a "I need to get out immediately spell" as opposed to Ghost, and being able to get over walls is great.

Optional

Exhaust
Focuses more on weakening Marksmans (ADC's) and attack speed based champions. Still useful, but this spell has its place now.


Ghost
This is an amazing way to keep with or away from your enemy in a long distance chase. This together with Remove Scurvy is very handy, especially if you get cc'd during the use of Ghost.


Heal
It works great in unison with Remove Scurvy for a pretty big heal, and can help in team fights. Other than that, this spell should be used by a support. The nerf to an early heal has made it less popular, but the max value is unchanged.


Teleport
This is a great way to keep up your farm in the early laning phase if you survive a gank with ~50 health. Good spell for map aware players if you know to split push, also applies indirect pressure for ganking and teamfights.

Farming and Laning

Farming
"Farming is the act of a champion killing multiple minions to gain gold. Certain champions have abilities which aid them in farming. Farming early game will allow you to purchase better items, making your late game stronger. Later in the game, farming opportunities will be fewer.

Farming is an essential component of early-game laning. Champions try to out-farm the enemy and "win" the lane." - League of Legends Wiki.

So just try to lasthit with your Q to gain the extra Gold from its Passive.
You don't know how to lasthit? Not the Guide to explain just search elsewhere ;)

Laning
If your Opponent is easy to harass just land a few Q's on him. With your early Sheen you can deal heavy Damage by doing this.

If your Opponent harass you just try your best to farm and Heal you with your w. You can wait for Ganks or you can turn a dive or a attack from your Opponent with your w easily.


Guide Top

Teamfights, Combos and more

Always use your Ultimate in Teamfights. With AP Gangplank its dealing HEAVY damage. You can turn Teamfights with the slow and the insane area damage. With you Athene's you have enough Cooldown Reduction to spam your Ulti a bit for helping other lanes for rescuring Turrets or Teammates.
Your Q deals heavy Damage with your Lich Bane and your Rabadon's Deathcap. Use your E to gain Movement Speed and Damage to chase your enemys by using your Q to hit them or to escape. You can also use your W to get out of slows, stuns, snares and so on.
