Summoner Spells


Exhaust is the most common used spell as a support as it reduces the damage done by the enemy champion and also slows them down.


Flash is particularly used for almost every character, as it allows you to escape from an enemy or to get a kill.


Ignite is good for extra damage to enemies. *As a mid champion, this is a key spell for Nami. (Good for harassing and being aggressive).


Heal is good to heal all of your allies, but it is not sufficient enough, so not really used as much as the others.

Items for Mid

The items are separated into two section, one where you're at a disadvantage and one where you're dominating. At a disadvantage, you should request help from your jungler or another teammate, as it is very easy for you to bait someone. If you're team is unable to help you, convert into a tanky caster. This works due to your masteries and runes that help support the conversion. Build items based on the enemy champion and what they are also building.

Items for Support

Skill Sequence

Ebb and Flow is the main focus of Nami as a mid champion. With this ability, you can sustain yourself in lane and farm as you wish. By mastering your W first, you can start harassing your opponent much easier. They will be forced to stay away from the minion if you approach, but be cautious for opponents that can dash towards you and stuns.


Guide Top

Skill Combos

Your skill set combo: Q -> W -> E -> Attack -> Run.
With this combo, you can deal alot of damage and at the same time you will heal yourself. This depends on your skill shots, which will require practice. With the long duration of the Aqua Prison, you can use your Ebb and Flow (W), and your Tidecaller's Blessing (E) simultaneously and run away before they drop back down.
Use your W to harass the enemy until you are at an appropriate health advantage. If the enemy champion has about 1/3 of their life between beginning and mid game, you can initiate with your combo and at the same time using your Ignite to insure the kill.

Runes

You can use either the AP Set or the Tanky AP Set. The AP Set does not allow you to easily convert into a tanky caster unlike the Tanky AP set, but it provides a greater damage to your foes.
I prefer the Tanky AP Set, since it is more adaptable.
Tanky AP Set:Greater Seal of Armor (x9)

Greater Glyph of Magic Resist (x9)

Greater Mark of Magic Penetration (x9)

Greater Quintessence of Ability Power (x1)

Greater Quintessence of Scaling Ability Power (x2)
