Not Updated For Current Season
Hello and welcome to a new way to play Ziggs. Playing him as a support is a fun and interesting way to play him. It is completely viable, but people will not expect your pick to be the support.
The idea behind Troll Guide, is not to troll your team by going AFK, intentionally feeding, or trash-talking, but instead to build a champion in a non-normal way for fun and playing your hardest as though it were a legit build. Your only trolling is in your item build.
Runes and Masteries
The runes are defensive runes that are the best for a bot lane support. Armor red, armor yellow, magic resist blue, GP10 quints.
The mastery page is a utility page giving extra health regen, mana regen, CDR, extra EXP and extra gold.
Exhaust: An absolute must when you support... unless you dont take it. It is REALLY good and useful late game, I would HIGHLY recommend it.
Flash:Yeah... Flash... nuff said.
Clairvoyance:Sooo, your team wants you, or you want to take CV? Alright then, take it, just chose which skill you aren't taking. Also is it to help jungle, top or bot lane? Remember that if you aren't using it for bot lane, keep it off CD and annoy the enemy jungler.
Heal:Yeah, I don't know why you decided to take this skill, it's good, but not a skill you normally take, still an option though.
Ghost:So you dont like Flash? Then pick something else. OOHHHH you still want an escape? Then pick Ghost.
Clarity:Would never recommend it, but some people like to run with this.
Cleanse:WOW, screw you. You think I'm joking, well I'm not, you are a terrible person and SUPER selfish, how dare you pick Cleanse when there are options that allow you to SUPPORT your AD Carry.
Bouncing Bomb:Use it to harass your enemy and when the jungler comes to gank to kill the enemy.
Satchel Charge:Use it in the bush to force enemy support out and to displace the enemy, max it first to lower the cooldown.
Hexplosive Minefield:All good supports have some form of CC, this is your main one, max it second to increase the damage and the slow, you don't need more than 2 points early on.
Mega Inferno Bomb:Dont you hate it when you support... and the enemy hides at the turret at almost no health... AND LIVES!!! Not if you play Ziggs. Laugh as your ult kill them HAHAHAHAHA.
After 20 min DO NOT BUY THEM FOR THE GOLD. Only buy them if you want to change the item to another item. If you've NEVER experienced a whole ton of gold items and the bonuses to having them, they are AMAZING. A good investment any time in the game... before 20 min.
Time for the item build. Just a normal non-tank support build.
Boots of Mobility:Because warding is fun at high speeds.
Morello's Evil Tome:20% CDR!!! AP!!! Builds from a GP10 item!!! Seriously guys, its an AMAZING item that should be bought on all non-tank supports i.e. Soraka, Sona, etc.
Shurelya's Reverie:Because our goal as a support is ALWAYS 40% CDR, and Move Speed too stronk.
Aegis of the Legion:Because it is the most OP Aura item for supports.
Sight Ward:WHY U NO BUY WARDS EVAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!! BUY A WARD, THEN BUY SOME MORE!!!
Reasons why you don't have wards: just used the last one, going b and buying more, PLZ DONT ENGAGE!!!
Oh, right you do, that's why you're looking at this guide, uhhhh... IDC go build whatever you want to.
Locket of the Iron Solari:Its a decent support item that builds from that Heart of Gold you bought.
Banshee's Veil:It gives you Health, Mana, MR, and a SUPER SHIELD :D
Rod of Ages:AP plus Health plus Mana. It's a strong item, just not... you know... yeah... that... that 10 min thing... really, it's your choice.
Randuin's Omen:Because it also builds from Heart of Gold.
Guardian Angel:Because why not.
Warmog's Armor:HEALTH TOO STRONK, although you will probably never stack it by the time you get it.
Abyssal Scepter:AP and MR.
Zeke's Herald:Because you hate Morello's Evil Tome or Shurelya's Reverie and want to make life harder to pick another item.
SERIOUSLY, I GAVE YOU LIKE A BAJILLION CHOICES AND YOU STILL CANT DECIDE!!!
Announcer: A summoner has disconnected.
Teammate:... Reported for AFK. /all can you report this guy for AFK, he rage quit cause we couldnt chose a last item even though we may never even reach that point.
Announcer: A summoner has reconnected.
Me:Good you chose an item and I return to you with your gameplay strategy... KILL THEM.
That's it. Kill... Them... NOW. This is a kill lane style support. You will want to be with someone who is strong early on and can help you to gain kills. More kills equals happy team, burst and poke capabilities too stronk.
What do you meant I use too stronk too often. Too stronk is too stronk of a saying.
Announcer:A summoner has disconnected.
Ask yourself a few basic questions to determine if you had a GG:
Did I have fun?
Did I avoid intentionally feeding, AFK and trash talking?
Did I try my best, even when losing with a terrible, and I mean TERRIBLE AD Carry?
Did I still not rage because my ADC was terrible?
If you answered yes to all of these questions, then you did great. Ignore your team if they are calling you a troll. Ziggs can go support if he wants to. He's fun and interesting and throws off your opponent. Never say BG, it's a terrible saying. Play for fun. Winning is also fun FYI.
Wow, you read the whole guide? Awesome. Now go try it out... I can wait... Was it fun? Obviously your answer was yes. Go ahead and up vote it, even though the guide is clearly a troll guide, up voting it will not hurt and will allow others to have the same amount of fun.
Please leave comments. I'll read them if people post them and I'll make changes if people can convince me. I will not change this from Support though since that is the point of the guide.
