Items

This explain for my item choice.

STARTING ITEMS:
- Faerie Charm
-3x Health Potion
-3x Sight Ward

I like to start game with this items because i have a lot of survivability and vision in lane so enemy jungler have small chance to gank my lane. And of course Faerie Charm is one step closer to Philosopher's Stone.

But if my team go to invade enemy jungle i usually starting with Boots of Speed and 1x Sight Ward and 2x Health Potion

LANING ITEMS:
- Philosopher's Stone
- Boots of Speed
- Heart of Gold
-A lot of Sight Wards
-And if u can Oracle Elixir

This is items which are nice for support because most support are mana hungry at start of game.
So u have some MP Regeneration and HP regeneration , some Health and 2 gold per second which is so nice.

MID-GAME ITEMS:
- Ionian Boots of Lucidity
- Shurelya's Reverie
- Aegis of the Legion

This items are for your team and especially for your AD Carry because of Aegis of the Legion's Aura . Shurelya's Reverie have nice activation for engage or run.

LATE-GAME ITEMS:
- Frozen Heart
- Abyssal Scepter
-And last place in my build going to wards.

This items are one of the items which u cant buy every game because you don't have farm and kills.But if u get them before end of the game don't buy last item because that place belongs to wards!!!Look you are support u don't need too much items but your team need WARDS , because WARDS WIN THE GAME!!!

And of course SITUATIONAL ITEMS.

U probably know what are SITUATIONAL ITEMS so i dont want to explain this.

SITUATIONAL ITEMS for support are:

- Soul Shroud
- Void Staff
- Zeke's Herald

AND MORE............!!!

Summoner Spells

This section is about Summoner Spells.

My standard summoner spell combination is:




But i using other summoner spell combination:




I usually using this combination for Blitzcrank,but i use this for Taric too.




This is good combination but i don't using this because i think that Support without Exhaust
is not Support.


Guide Top

Masteries

For masteries i using 1/3/26



I using only one upgrade from this part of Mastery Three and that upgrade is for Exhaust.


From this part i taking 3 updates for Armor because it make me so tanky in combination with my
W in early game.



From this part i taking a lot of things which can help me to support, like bigger vision of wards,more expiriance mana,CD of Summoner Spells and more...


Guide Top

Warding!!!

The favorite part of gamae for me is WARDING!!!!!There are Sight Ward
and Vision Ward which can detect Sight Ward.And There is Oracle Elixir which can detect both types of wards.This is my Warding Map:

Legend:

-1st are Green-Black Wards which are early game wards.I using them to stop normal and lane ganks.And of course to have nice vision of enemy bot lane.

-2nd are Greed Wards which are mid and late game wards.Nice vision on enemys is always good.

-3rd are Pink Wards and they are always good to discover enemy Wards on Dragon and Baron.
