Standard Support Nunu
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.
Hey guys I'm "ironmaidenomg69", your run of the mill support guy. One of my favourite supports is Mr Nunu and his yeti, giving your adc a big ol buff to make them hella good in the late game. He's also an easy support to play for anyone who doesn't know wtf they're doing which I can appreciate.
Pros / Cons
- Naturally tanky
- Hella good buff for your adc
- Riding a yeti
- Auto attack slow for enemy adc
- Easy to play
- Can chomp on drag or counter jungle if you really wanna be annoying
- Wasted passive since you won't be attacking creeps or champs since you are melee and will be harassed to hell and you will piss off your adc unless you are pushing
- Won't be munching minions to heal in lane, those are for your adc, get out of here Nunu
- Unreliable ult, can't ks from your adc gosh dangit.
- No heals for your adc unless you build emblem of valour or take summoner heal (building emblem isn't a bad idea if you can get your paws on it)
Flash is always beautiful, escape from awkward positions, do smexy flash ults, the world is your oyster.
Exhaust is good to hand kills to your adc, exhaust high priority targets, save your adc, be good Nunu.
Heal is pretty awesome now, you can go for it if you want, won't offend me, I promise.
Ignite is also a pretty good option in lane if your adc is taking barrier. True damage is pretty sweet and it hurts a lot, stops that annoying soraka healing the enemy during trades, try to not kill steal from your adc all the time though ;)
Magic resist glyphs
Gold per 5 quints
These are pretty much the standard runes for support, you can change the quints to flat health if you wanna be fancy since Nunu is a tanky a hell beast but I like these runes.
I like using these masteries to have a nice balance between tankiness and utlity, this is more personal preference, you can do whatever you want, whether it be 0 21 9 or 0 9 21 or 21 0 9 or whatever.
Support for season 3 101. Rush sight stone. You won't have to buy as many wards (even though you should still continue buying wards) and you can start saving more money to get your sexy support items. You can start building oracles during/ after laning phase, having vision over the enemy team with always give your team an advantage. The trick to playing support is to assume you will be the only person warding, so compensate by buying wards every b. Always ask your jungler if they will be buying Aegis or Locket as you will look pretty stupid if you don't realise you've wasted your gold. If he does concentrate on buying Shurelya's, oracles, WARDS etc. Zekes is still good but pretty expensive, if the game goes on for long enough and your team will appreciate it go for it, why not? Twin shadows is okay, I wouldn't rush it tbh, concentrate on being tanky and wards.
I just like Nunu support, he's awesome. If you want a support your adc will appreciate and isn't a complete bugger to play Nunu is your man. Just remember as a support to ward constantly, grab your pink wards your green wards your sight stone wards your oracles your vision goggle, WARD ALL THE MAP! You'll do well son, I trust you. Cheers for reading guys, peace.
