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.
Okay so basically, i've been playing poppy tank, and shes OP....
I know everyone says that on their guides, but seriously... you still do tones of damage, but you also don't recieve that much damage... its all about knowing how to play.
To be a good popppy Tank/Dps, you need need to know 3 things...
1. When/who to use your ulti on.
2. When/where to charge people.
And 3. When to turret dive.
So, your ulti is amazing, it stops people from hitting you apart from the person you've targeted, who you also deal 40% increased damage to, so when intiating, just target the person with the lowest DPS... which is usually some form of healer, or maybe a tank... if theres a healer, you have 2 options, either target him/her, and nuke them as fast as possible, this will waste most of your ulti, but you'll be able to kill them with little hassle, and very fast... option 2, target a tank, then nuke the healer, you'll do less damage to it, but when its dead, you'll still have some of your ulti left, and can proceed in tanking more damage... When using your ulti to intiate battles, just target the lowest dps, then charge someone into a wall, then you'll be in the middle of everyone, so they'll all start attacking you, but wait.... they do no damage... "**** YOUR ULTI POPPY!" is what they'll scream at you when they're looking at their death counter... but remember, its only for 6 seconds, so don't go running in there thinking you can take on the whole team, thats just ******ed.
Next up is Charging, this is insane... it deals quite alot of damage if you hit someone into a wall, which will also stun them, and the wall makes you hit about x2 more damage then a normal charge. This is used to either, intiate ganks, save allies, running away (pop W then charge them into a wall, risky stuff, seen as they might have exhaust or another form of CC, so you might end up giving them an easier kill.) turret diving and stunning a healer, so your team may nuke the dps without hassle... just stuff like that, and there are plenty of other ways you can use it.
Okay so, finally, turret diving.... you might think that poppy could easily turret dive people, because all she'd have to do is pop ulti, then simply charge into them... sometime this is the case, other times, you end up getting yourself killed... the ulti is VERY tricky, you need to estimate how much damage you will do, and will you be able to with stand a few hits of the turret before running away to saftey, also the enemies health, and do they have CC, or escape spells, and where are the other members their team, the last one is very crucial. You could think you're gonna turret dive someone and kill them, then all of sudden an enemy apears and even if you manage to kill your target, you might die anyway. REMEMBER... A kill is not worth a death, the faster you stack leviathan, the better tank you'll be.
This'll be the end of this guide, if you need to ask any questions, or want me to add why i've used these summoner spells, masteries or runes, just leave me a comment and i'll get back to you.... DON'T RATE NEGETIVLY UNLESS YOU'RE GOING TO TELL ME WHY please.
Good luck, have fun :)
