I'd say an other good combo would be Caitlyn-Nidalee, the trap combo will stop the enemies from walking into the brushes all the time. This way you don't have to waste your wards. On top of that they both have a great poke with their Q, which both have a pretty long range. It's also a pretty safe lane as Nidalee can outrun her opponents and Caitlyn has her E to escape.
It might require some training as both players need to place their traps in good positions in order to make the combo deadly and their pokes are skillshots.

guide is quite good... but 2 little things:
1. if youre support always build first sightstone -> more usefull then philo since it gives bonus hp AND gives more "gold" then the philo would do in the time
2. well that could just be me... but i personally dont like runaans it doesnt deal dmg you cant control the bolts it just gives attack speed... and the bolts doesnt even stack with simply crit.. but however... maybe ill try it with graves one time... and then with cait... then with varus...^^

I use Ezreal-Soraka combo on bottom or top lanes. This is a deadly combo, because Ezreal literally never runs out of mana. Over all the combo works against most teams as Ezreal hardly has to 'B' back and get more mana or health. He racks in the gold and builds rather quickly. Around level 10 Ezreal should 'B' back and start building into Bloodthirster, if not already have it. That is all I can really say as I'b building my own guide as this combo. Along with a Zed-Veigar combo.

Look forward into being credited for the public notice of these two combos.

Nope, She rolls solo. She wins lane with anyone, thats just how she rolls, she doesn't discriminate. Nah, I'll add it, didn't notice I didnt include her in a combination. Its still a WIP, but everything is atm.

JAYZORZ (1) | January 19, 2013 3:46am
Saw this a while ago, but Ill respond now. Ez + Nunu is still terror, but since ezreal's W no longer lowers attack speed, you can't double debuff them while double buffing* yourself (*Blood boil and essence flux, not red and blue buff)

IT still is very strong. Draven and alistar is pretty boss.

As for singed + cassio, applies to teemo as well, but yea, I love how her E interacts with other poisons.

JPlayah (1) | January 3, 2013 4:41pm
Fantastic guide. I have personally enjoyed some great games as Taric while laning with Graves. If you do a guide on AP synergy, there is one combo in particular that you should check out:

Singed + Casseopeia! XD

Kog Maw (18) | January 3, 2013 10:50am
Hi dude! There's just one thing i want to mention!
The Kog'Maw + Nunu combination is much more safer than 3/10
I mean Kog'Maw's damage combinated with Nunu's ability to cover hes fleeing!
That's a safe combo and i say this with 3rd biggest build on mobafire + 100 games with him!

Dinglez | January 1, 2013 7:37pm
I main as Soraka and I personally get excited when I lane with a Twitch, MF, Caitlyn or Siv. Miss Fortune and Sivir are so mana hungry early game you basically can only use 3 moves, so I love being able to keep their tanks full. Caitlyn and Siv also have amazing Poke with thier Q's but need that person there to give them Mana. Twitch on the other hand, I basically just hold his hand a little bit, few heals and mana, once he gets one kill its almost GG, he steam rolls so much. As soraka if I lane with someone who doesnt need the mana so much (Vayne etc) I sit in our far bush and silence then auto attack then back in bush and it really creates zoning for my AD

Love the guide <3

Xinofotis | December 29, 2012 4:06am
Great Guide...All combinations are indeed powerfull together in a lot of ways. IMO Taric also makes a really powefull combo with varus.Tons of burst with Dazzle+varus hit E Q combo.
A hell of a guide Thanks again :)

JAYZORZ (1) | December 21, 2012 4:00am
In my opinion too, I just mentioned soraka instead of sona because an example of a 'farm lane' is ashe soraka, my 'poke lane' example was mainly a counter carry lane, back before ez nerfs when you could slow the enemy attack speed by 75% and increase your own by the same amount.

[-]
sacman69r | December 20, 2012 1:22pm
You forgot the more popular Sona and Ez bot lane combo. One of the more elementary poke lanes seen very very often in high elo and tournament play. Sona is overall a better support than Soraka (in my opinion) so I am surprised to see Soraka in the 5 instead of Sona.

I was just setting up the guides quickly, filled all 10 in about 10 minutes. I wasn't really making this guide for the builds/setups, but I included them just to so people had a basis.

I will fix some masteries soon, namely the one mentioned above, thanks.

lolsteamrolelr | December 11, 2012 8:08am
Hey, wanted to point out couple of things.

I play supports exclusively and find your basic setup very useful.

However, Blitzcrank masteries makes no sense in basic math.

Why are we choosing to put 4 points into Offence tree, to get -

Sorcery = 4% Cooldown Reduction

instead of putting them into Utility Tree, to get -

Intelligence = 6% Cooldown Reduction

+ to get 1% more to CDR or get
Nimble = +3% Movement Speed

i suggest you to try zyra support he have a good cc with root and at low levels her plants cad do a realy nice dmg. yeastearday i E+W+Q to the adc and i take half hdp drom him without adc help ;).. the ultimate is very good then and the slow from the E plants is nice. you have free "wards" and i recomend maxing W first for cdr. She had no mana trouble and if she get late in the game and get rilay+DFG for the las 2 items. she can slow them all the day long with Q+W, get a nice dmg and help to get the carry or tank with the DFG. the items will be like: shurelya + aegis + merc boots + rilay + DFG and the extra space for the wards. maybe you can take out DFG or Rilay depending if you need dmg(DFG) on the team or utility (rilay) to get a zeker to help the adc and AD champs :)

I generally like the idea of this guide.
You could probably add a Taric + Ezreal combo, statistics say it is the most played and most effective combo in ranked games. The high burst damage of Ezreal's shots synergizes well with Taric's Dazzle :)

Hey guys, I have been quite busy with assignments so I haven't changed this much recently. I do plan to expand it to make it include:

  • More info on certain strength (poke, kills, farming etc)
  • Countering advice
  • More combinations

The main reason why it doesn't have all the combinations possible, and all the information about it is, well in all honesty, i'm human and there is a lot to write.

14 ADC listed and 12 Supports, thats each carry 12 times!

14*12 = 168 combinations, but I will add more stuff soon.

Thanks for your suggestions guys,
Jayzorz

NoobyPower (83) | August 30, 2012 5:06am
I'm primarily and AD Carry player and I'd like to share some combos that work very well together for me:

Tristana + Leona: A very high burst damage lane. The burst damage they both do is extremely high, especially because of Sunlight. Leona can lock down the enemy AD carry easily and this can snag skills. Great harassment too if Leona can land a few Sunlights here and there. Their escapes are good. Estimated difficulty is about 6~7.

Ashe + Janna: THE complete anti-aggression lane. This lane is extremely useful in stopping kill lanes in their tracks. This combination becomes even more useful come late game as Janna has excellent peeling potential and that both of them can kite attackers very well. Early game, Janna can protect Ashe so that she can farm well and her shield will give extra AD to bolster Ashe's damage. Estimated difficulty is about 7~9 as it requires high coordination between the two and the Janna has to be somewhat skilled.

Also, I think you should list some combinations to counter/cope with the opposing lane combination. In my opinion, Corki + Taric counters Graves + Soraka because they have almost equal sustain, but the former will be able to force and win trades because of overwhelming burst damage and armour reduction on Graves.

Just to add to DanChe's point, the passive speed is ridiculous on MF + Janna too.

This guide is really nice! Great ideas. I made an account just to mention an Ezreal + Lux lane. Post level 6, as soon as Lux lands a bind the enemy carry dies. Try it and see - just coordinate with your carry.

Xenotechie (65) | August 10, 2012 9:01am
About the counter-lanes... it really depends on the lane. If a lane is really hard to counter, like Graves+ Soraka, it deserves its own section. Most of the time, however, the two line approach will suffice.

Tristana alistar is a good combo. If they are on the blue side, they can pick up twin golems, push lane a bit, and hit level 2 before the enemy does. With this, tristana has her e-w and alistar has q-w, and combined with some auto attacks and ignite, it is an easy first blood.

JAYZORZ (1) | August 8, 2012 9:32pm
Thanks for all your reviews guys, I am currently adding some more lane comps. Soon, I will add a counter-combo section, or I will just add two lines at the end saying

Counters combo: First Blood Approaches (Draven + Alistar)
Countered by: Counter Carry Poke Lane (Ezreal + Nunu)

Leave some replies saying which you think is better. Also, share it with any friends that you think might like it, and upvote if you do. It helps others to see it and it may help them too.

Thanks guys,

Thanks guys for the reviews, this is still kind of a work in progress and I will be adding a lot more combinations, I just wanted to get a basis done for people. Also, as I said in the summary, post details about a combo and why it is good and I will give you the credits and add it in the guide, so please feel free to do that.

P.S. I rarely play Twitch, Kayle, Zilean or Lulu for some reason.

P.P.S Thanks for the correction of my BBCode, I write all of the abilities off memory and I can't always remember the exact name huehue.


Ok, explanations:

Taric+ Tristana: Great for getting early kills. As soon as she gets her Rocket Jump and Explosive Shot, the lane can pretty much go in for a kill. Taric initiates with Dazzle and Shatter while Tristana is getting off as much damage as possible via autoattacks. As soon as the stun ends, Tristana should land her Rocket Jump and Explosive Shot, then both of the laners should try to finish off what's left of the carry, possibly with ignite. Level 3 gives even more power with Rapid Fire, and at level 6, Buster Shot should be able to kill most carries with relative ease. Of course, Tristana can always initiate with Rocket Jump, but it's better for you to take the bulk of the minion damage. At any rate, this combo will do at least 280 magic damage at level 2, and at level 6, with the two ultimates, a whopping 910 magic damage, and that's without any auto attacks. With them, this is more than enough for a kill.

The weakness of this lane is it's difficulty. A poorly-executed combo will, at the very least, cost Tristana a LOT of mana, and at worst, end up in a double kill. This requires a lot of coordination between the laners. Of course, this strategy is also weak to champions with peeling capabilities, like Nunu, or, more importantly, Alistar. While the lane is still very possible with these, it requires additional coordination in attacking between their cooldowns.

Safety of this lane is very strong, with Tristana having a fantastic escape and Taric having a stun and an armor aura. This is true until a kill-combo is started, in which case only the armor aura remains.


Graves+ Soraka: This is widely considered by the community to be THE farming lane, and it's easy to see why. Soraka is, well, the queen of sustain, and Graves is known for his good early game...and mid game... and late game (but not the best at all of them, at least not since the nerfs). The goal of this lane is to deflect any aggression and give tons of CS to Graves, so he owns your team later-on. Thanks to Graves' bukkake Buckshot, this is not hard at all. Thanks to the range of that bloody thing, it is also good for harassment. A smart Graves will also (ab)use his passive by hitting minions, meaning that he will have 10 extra resistances if you try to engage. But wait, that's not all! He has two fantastic escapes / engaging abilities in the form of Smokescreen and Quickdraw. And Soraka... yeah. This lane is fairly easy to do, and it's safety is unparalleled.

So, what's are it's weaknesses? Some combination combination of healing reduction, powerful harassment, high armor, heals, and smart aggression. You just can't outsustain this lane, and this is one of the rare lanes in which Soraka CAN win a straight-up fight, so zoning out is not easy either. Now, healing reduction will enable you to be able to harass this lane and actually do some damage, armor block all of Graves' damage, but the most effective of all of these is smart aggression. Graves comes with rather long cooldowns, as does Soraka. Forcing them to use their abilities leaves the lane open for aggression which can result in a kill and Graves losing a lot of CS. The best way to do this is faking aggression with a lane combo that can actually kill them.

Enter Taric + Tristana. This lane has ALL of the things I mentioned. Tristana can harass with Explosive Shot, until the time is right to go full on with aggression. Taric provides both high armor, heals, and a lot of killing potential. Also, the lane can scare the **** out of the Graves + Soraka lane by using either Dazzle or, less prefferably, Rocket Jump. This can be even further amplified with some psychology, making the enemy think you are even stronger than you are. This is the only lane combo which can actually zone them out.

Other possible options are Miss Fortune, with her heal-reducing harassment and her harassment in general, Sivir, who can turn Graves' Buckshot into free mana and harass with Ricochet, and Alistar, with his CC and the ability to mess up last hitting.

P.S. When you credit me, can you link the guide from my signature?

Good information. I usually do a bot duo and Draven + Alistar is easily one of my favorites.

The only combo I'd prefer over that is Tristana + Lulu. Good burst and hard to counter with both Tristana and Lulu being able to escape most situations without a struggle.

The site really needed something like this, but you need some more lane combos. Taric+ Tristana is a great burst lane, and Graves+ Soraka is a potent poke+farm lane. Consider also adding info how to counter lane combinations.

BTW, you have messed up some BBcoding in the Urgot+ Janna combo. It's Hyper-Kinetic Position Reverse, not Hyper-Kinetic Position Reverser.

This my man.. is wonderful! When I first came to mobafire, I was new to LoL and I knew nothing about the meta. Heck, even now when I know it, usually my teammates just want the ad carry, no one wants the support or tank. this will hopefully teach newer players what combos are nice for bot lane and so, they can know what to expect from their support.

Solid +1
