Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
Hi, and welcome to my 3rd guide. This guide will be about Poppy, the Iron Ambassador. Poppy is a high damage carry, that does magic and physical damage. Lets start!
Greater Mark of Insight. Good to have that early magic penetration, eh?
Greater Seal of Resilience. Go for that armor, for some early game survivability.
Greater Glyph of Potency. I just love that! Get that ability power, and go get 'em!
Greater Quintessens of Potency. Just take it, take it! Very good, I take this under any circumstances!
Going for all damage and ability power, and this armor.
Take the damage for easier last-hit.
Take the ability power for.. your abilities and early game power.
Then take armor for some good early game tanking.
Take a Boots of Speed and 3 healing potions to stay in lane longer. You can take the Doran's shield, but I prefer the boots.
Then farm a little and buy a Sheen, if you got some more money start to buy a Phage. After that go straight for the Trinity Force.
After the Trinity Force, you're almost op. But we need damage, right? Ok, go buy a Pickaxe and farm and buy the Last Whisperer. Now you should get some kills.
Okay, now get some kills, baby! Then buy some cold Infinity Edge. 2strong.
Hmm. We need some ap, since we only have about 50.. Go buy a Hextech Revolver and then the Hectech Gunblade. Now you got spell vamp. Okay, lets think that you Q, Devestating Blow, will damage about 500 and you got 20% spell vamp. Boom, 100 hp back.
We want AP, we want AP!!! WEE, get a Rabadon's deathcap. This build is freakin' expensive.
Then just buy the Guinsoo's.
Now, I'll explain Poppy's abilities.
Q, Devastating Blow. Poppy crushes her oppenent and dealing dons of damage.
W, Paragon of Demacia. Passive: When Poppy is hit, or is attacking an enemy her damage and armor will be increased. Stacks up to 10 times.
E, Heroic Charge. Poppy rushes to target enemy unit dealing magic damage. If they clashed into a terrain they'll be stunned for 1.5 seconds.
R, Diplomatic Immunity. Poppy focuses at 1 enemy champion, making Poppy 20/30/40% increased damage to them. Poppy is also immune to any other damage than other than her target.
I take Exhaust for a 80% chance to win a 1v1. Awesome.
I take ghost for chasing and running away. Good to finish kills of, or make sure you dont get killed, I take this instead of Flash.
Ignite. Okay, it does true damage, but I will not take this with Poppy.
Other spells I don't think fit Poppy very well.
Pros / Cons
Got a long stun early game.
Got very high damage with Devastating Blow.
Got a good movement speed bonus.
Is not that type of champions builds like 2 phantoms 2 infinity edge and 2 bloodthirster.
That's what Yi does...
She's a girl.
Has mana problems in the early game.
Low health bar.
Often focused in teamfights.
Hard to last hit minions.
You only got 2.1k health, so dont jump first into the fight. Let the tank come first and jump in with your ult. Try to ult their support so only their support can hit you. Then focus their tank.
You should be farming the first 15-25 minutes constantly, as your build is damn expensive.
Try to get at least lvl 14 when 25 minutes are gone.
Thanks for reading guides, it means alot for me. Make sure to read the whole guide, to get the best pwnage and experience while playing Poppy. Bye.
