Not Updated For Current Season
Welcome to my Orianna build.
First, my english is bad, and i feel bad. Second, I'm seeing army of ppl coming and say "Ori is AP mid you ignorant **** she's **** support" etccc. Nvm just ignore'em.
Ori can actually support. Really hard. Really really hard. I'm gonna try to explain to you how to. Don't expect to carry your whole team, eh, you're a support.
DISCLAIMER : I'm awful at league (Silver III). But i've been playing since beta. I know the mechanics. I know the champs, all the champs. That allows me to rape unexperienced S3 fresh newcomers trying to get out of silver. THIS BUILD IS NOT FOR COMPETITIVE PLAY (maybe it would work, but as i'm not on competition scene, i can't say).
So, this being said, we can start.
Why/when should i play Supporiana ?
You actually have a good team comp. You're the last pick. You have an initiator ( J4, Amumu, Malphite, Zac, shyvana, etc etc etc) but you lack overall cc, you have a squishy carry to protect (ez, twitch, ....), JUST PICK GODAMN ORIANNA.

Lore (You really read these on moba ?)
There once was a Piltovian man named Corin Reveck who had a daughter named Orianna, whom he loved more than anything else in the world. Though Orianna had incredible talent for dancing, she was deeply fascinated by the champions of the League of Legends. This fascination compelled her to begin training to become such a champion. It is unfortunate that her sheltered, wide-eyed naivete led her to take unnecessary and dangerous chances which ultimately led to her tragic demise. Orianna's death shattered Corin, driving him into deep depression and an obsession with techmaturgy. He could not stand the void his daughter's death left in his life, so he decided to build a replacement – one that would complete Orianna's dream of joining the League. What was created is the clockwork killing machine that Corin named after his daughter. Knowing that she was destined to be a champion and seeing the way the times were changing, he created The Ball as her pet and protector. This nearly symbiotic creation uses a different type of techmaturgy, relying more heavily on electricity than clockwork.
Orianna and The Ball now fight as Champions in the League of Legends, using her sometimes misguided morality as a compass. She tries in earnest to fit in with those around her. However, no matter how hard she tries, Orianna can never be human and there is always something unnerving and alien about her. Though she attempts social interaction with other champions in the League of Legends, there are few who can get past her exotic nature. To many, it's as if there's nothing inside, that Orianna is just a soulless clockwork shell – a dangerous and deadly one at that. However, all along she remains the perfect daughter in her father's eyes.
"Dance with me, my pet. Dance with me into oblivion."
Pros / Cons
+ She's a robot.
+ She's a robot with boobs.
+ Versatile champion. Can deal damage, shield, buff, slow, and melt faces with R
+ A good R win your teamfight/game.
+ Low base cooldowns, but SPAMGODESS with cdr.
- Very squishy early game
- No real/direct escape mechanics
- Easy to learn, very hard to master
- No hard CC besides ult
- No heal
- Her ball is like a gremlin, MANA HUNGRY, especially after midnight.
Nothing special about these runes, gold quints gives you gold for wards and gold items.
Blue scaling mr glyphs, if you prefer flat mr, you can use it too. Nothing to discuss about.
Red marks, actually you are free on these. I like mana/5, but you can either choose Magic penetration or armor.
Seals are about armor and life, you can swap with w/e you like.
This mastery tree isn't perfect, you can adapt it to your playstyle. Keep in mind cdr and manaregen is your best friend.
Passive Clockwork Windup
This passive is awesome. Orianna mid players know well how powerful this passive is. As a support, it gives your AAs super poke power. Abuse it from the bush, then use E => (almost)free harass.
Q Command: Attack
Time to get ballz. One in particular. This one. What to say on this spell. Many, many things.
Zoning tool, farm tool, harass tool, scouting tool, and base to all other Ori abilities.
Use it early to zone your oppos + AAs, Ori is one of the hardest harasser @lvl1.
W Command: Dissonance
Great spell, much slow, such damage, wow so OP.
As a support, you will not use this spell as a mid Ori does. Why ? Because you max it at last, its damage is very low, its manacost is high, and cd doesnt allow you to use it as much as you would want. No worries, this spell is still very important. Use it to speed up you carry, slow down ennemies, slow down upcoming junglers etc... Be sure to always benefit from both the speed up and the slow, this is how you use this spell right.
E Command: Protect
Main spell as supporianna. Armor and mr bonus for the target, damage enemies in his path. Low cooldown, decent shield, combined with W and/or R, disruptive in teamfights.
Always keep in mind that the shield comes when the ball is ON the target, not half way, not when the ball hit the target (I'm saying this because much of allies died because of that).
You need steel reflexes/be korean to use this spell at 100%. Remember to always have your ball attached to your carry when playing defensive or during a dive. It can save his life.
R Command: Shockwave
Do i really need to explain this spell ? This is the meltdown spell. Press R, and if you did it right the game is yours. Note that closer the enemies are from the edge, the more they will be bounced.
Use R to initiate fights, here's how to.
Step 1: Use E on initiator.
Step 2: Use W if he needs help to close the gap.
Step 3: Press R
Step 4: ????
Step 5: Profit.
About : Rylai's
If your team is going well, and you have some spare gold, consider building a Rylai's crystal scepter.
Why ? You really asked me why ?
Because every single enemy hit by the ball, Q, W, E, R, will be slowed like hell. If you hit 5 with your Q+W, consider them dead (55% slow is like Nasus' Wither at start). Imagine a permanent Wither on your entire team, kinda gg ?
I will be adding chapters very soon, about warding, map awareness, greed, matchups and best pals bot lane.
Thank you for reading. Sorry for my horrible english and lack of fancy screenshots, drawings, videos, or anything.
