Hello there chalapak here and welcome to my first guide in mobafire. In this guide I will be giving out tips on how to gank properly. First thing first, how do you gank properly? well, I have made a list of things to consider when ganking.
-Ask yourself "How much health do I have?"
-Ask yourself "How much health does he have?"
-Ask yourself "Do i have enough mana?"
-Ask yourself "How much mana does he have?"
-Ask yourself "Can he counter/run from my gank?"
-(If you are ganking a more tanky champion like Singed) Ask yourself "Do I need help?"
Ask yourself "How much health do I have?"
If you have 45% health and he has 70%, then you better start thinking "Should I gank him?". If you decided to continue to gank him and you succeeded then your a pretty darn good player. If you died, there's always next time.
Ask yourself "How much health does he have?"
It is always better to gank an enemy champion with lower health. If you see an Irelia with 30% health and no boots then dont hesitate to gank. (Unless she's with an ally)
Ask yourself "Do i have enough mana?"
Your skills are if not, the most important aspect of your ganking. But to use these skills you'll need mana. Buying blue pots or a Meki Pendant will help you a LOT in your ganking.
Ask yourself "How much mana does he have?"
Can he stun you? Can he slow you? If he can this will hinder your ganking and may lead you to death and verbal abuse. Next to his health, the most important thing to look at is his mana bar.
TIP: It is better to gank AFTER he uses a skill.
Ask yourself "Can he counter/run from my gank?"
Certain Champions like Kassadin, Twisted Fate and Shen can teleport at will. Silencing them or killing them before they teleport will work. Some champions like Morgana, Orianna Blitzcrank and Rumble have shields and can block your primary attacks with ease. It is better to gank with a teammate with a slow or stun when facing shielded foes. Another thing to look out for when ganking is those pesky stealthers. Examples of which are Twitch, Evelyn, Talon and Shaco. As they can scout the brush for you, they can also escape stealthed. A quick solution to this is using Oracles or Wards. If you are rushing a build and dont have time for Oracles or Wards, you can always harrass until they fall dead on their tracks,
(If you are ganking a more tanky champion like Singed) Ask yourself "D
Who are you ganking? If you thought of ganking a full health level: 6 Tryndamere then you better spam your ping. Some people say asking help is somewhat of a "girly" thing to do, but it's not. Asking help in ganking is beneficial both for you and the champion that helped you.
