Spells

In Summoner Spells grab Exhaust and Flash because this gives you the ability to keep the enemy of you or the ADC or to chase a low target, or Heal and Flash for a lot more sustain and durability. Ignite is also a good choice because it gives you greater damage output for your lane and makes it easier to secure kills.

Items

This is an example build of how you can use your item set to help your Attack Damage Carry farm efficiently while also being able to get out of sticky situations and also get objectives.Each of the items above help get a good laning phase and help support your team in team-fights. Remember I am here to give you an idea of what to build on Nami if u feel something isn't right you don't have to listen to me I'm just the guide, what you do is your choice. Agsin, Remember this is an example build of how you should make your skill-set make your own twist to it. Start off with Spellthief's Edge (remember to upgrade this as you have extra gold), 1 Stealth Ward , a Health Potion , and a Sweeping Lens . Build Boots of Swiftness - Homeguard , then save up for a Ruby Crystal and build it into a Sightstone , and eventually a Ruby Sightstone (Remember to keep 1 slot open for Vision Ward ) Save for Forbidden Idol and build it (with Chalice of Harmony ) into a Mikael's Crucible . After that buy a Fiendish Codex and a Aether Wisp to put into a Twin Shadows. Then an Aegis of the Legion and Kindlegem to build into a Locket of the Iron Solari . To complete your final build Buy Oracle's Lens . Also, remember by late game conditions can change, so buy what items are necessary.

Gameplay



I would highly Recommend Nami to anyone who is trying to find a champion to main that is high in harass and can help get their team out of sticky situations. She has a long range stun that stuns for a pretty decent amount of time. Nami also has a long range bounce that heals and damages , and an attack buff for you and your Attack Damage Carry . Plus to top it off she has a long range ultimate that slows . Your job as a support is to make sure the ADC (Attack Damage Carry) is safe and can stay in the lane to farm while also being able to do damage to the enemy team and get kills. Also You use a lot of Mana with Ebb and Flow so u must choose the moment correctly and not spam!You also have to be conscience of jungle and use Stealth Ward's ! Ward the 1st river bush (and if your on purple team ward the bush to the left on the enemy side.)

Skill Set



This is her main C.C Ability . She can stun Multiple targets for long amounts of time and can also be used to escape enemy's by casting it before where they will step. It can also use Be usd to trap people who turret dive and score a kill for your team.

This is Nami's main ability and also her strongest. This ability does lots of damage to your enemys ,and heals your allies tons This ability gives you a lot of control of you lane once it is rank 3 and your enemy's will be cautious .Let it be mana hungry or not ,this is your main Ability.

This Ability is a Essential asset to supporting your ADC. It lets you buff your own damage with basic attacks or your ADC.

Her ultimate Tidal Wave is a long rage low damage nuke that slows. This can be used to Initiate or slow and take down. It can be used for its' damage in team fight but it doesn't do that much.

Nami's Passive is her most unique skill . Her passive gives movement-speed and is very useful for escaping and chasing. For example, you are playing with Vayne as your ADC and the enemy is decently low you use Ebb and Flow it boosts her Movement and bounces to the enemy and she uses Tumble and picks up the kill. An example of an escape is with an enemy like Rengar using his ultimate and jumping to your Vayne . You use Aqua Prison on Vayne , and it also hits Rengar and stuns him but also boosts her movement to speed her up and make a clean escape.

Skill Leveling Sequence


Before I talk about what to max first, the ability you get at level 1 vary's. if you have a sharp ADC that knows how Nami works get Ebb and Flow first, however, most ADC do not know (or over estimate) how long range Ebb and Flow is, so I recommend getting Aqua Prison at level 1. As Nami , you max Ebb and Flow first because it gives you the ability to hit/heal multiple targets at once. This is a great tool to change the "tide" of battle. You then max your E Tidecaller's Blessing because it gives you the ability to buff your carry sometimes ten-fold in damage . You max your Q Aqua Prison last because of its long cool-down and its not worth its damage because it puts you in a bad position. But your skill sequence depends on who you are laning with , and how they play ususally you either max your Tidecaller's Blessing first then Ebb and Flow or the other way around . Pre-Level 6 you are supposed to linger around and wait until they try to push then once they get close enough lay Aqua Prison right behind them . When they are trapped cast Ebb and Flow where u see necessary and cast Tidecaller's Blessing on your ADC. Post level 6 you can do the normal combo ,or you can use your ultimate Tidal Wave and then lay Aqua Prison .

How to Mastering Laying Your Skills

When laying Aqua Prison try to hit as many targets as possible. The best way to land Aqua Prison is to lay it before your enemys as seen.


With Ebb and Flow there are 2 ways to send out the skill:

Option 1 - Target an Allie. The water will bounce to an enemy and if it can back to another allie or yourself.

Option 2 - Target an enemy . The water will bounce to an allie and if it can it will jump to an enemy again.


With this you also have 2 options:

Option 1 - Cast on highest damage dealer in the lane or near by to increase their damage even more.
Option 2 - cast it on yourself to either slow down your enemys for your adc to get away , or just to do more damage.

The main use of tidal wave is to slow and damage you enemy so you can chase down with team and kill them. But you can use it for its damage

Team Work

Nami is a teamwork based champion if your team doesn't work together you will probably have a hard time making a comeback , if you are having teamwork problems try to promote a more positive attitude and try to get them to work together . Also you must be pushy in team-fights and have your allies close to the enemy to get maximum use of your ability. During the laning phase as custom you must (as a support) in the laning phase of the game there is farming. Let the ADC last hit the minions so they can get the gold need for their expensive items do this for the team , but fell free to take a minion now and then.
