I figured I'd try ranked.

Game 1

Game 2

Game 3


Game 3 was rough. Had an AD carry Teemo, kept getting caught.

Still in my placement matches, we'll see what happens though. Thanks to Wayne3100 for the title.

They were all AD, so I didn't need the Scepter. And I left all the fight at pretty high health, so I didn't think Hourglass would help much.

We were a poke comp when I was playing Sona. Jayce top, Ezreal AD, myself as Sona, Diana jungle, and we had a... Gragas? Nidalee? Something like that. We were sieging a lot, and we needed some more mana regen. Doubt I would have upgraded it, maybe as the very last thing (Zeke's, then Shroud unless something else came up).

I hadn't planned on making a thread about this, Wayne told me to after I had already finished Game 3, so I'll make sure to get end game screen shots for the next ones. Will help explain the items and stuff.

Hourglass is pretty bad on him imo. Frozen Heart gives him more defense and utility (plus CDR, which eventually translates to damage in longer fights) and Sunfire Cape gives more consistent damage output and better effective health. Hourglass active is kinda useless on a tank since the idea is to soak up damage, not throw focus off of you on to your carries.

@Joes: You've improved a lot since I first played with you. I'll be interested to see how well you fare in soloqueue... ;)

I like mana manipulator, and we did need the mana regen. I know it's not a standard or "good" item, but it has its uses.

I was trying to buy a Zeke's first, I purchased Emblem of Valor with the intent of upgrading it. Then I remembered that Emblem built it when it was Stark's, and wasn't used in Zeke's. Derped, but it worked out ok.

Game 4

We were really far ahead, and we were sieging a lot, so I needed more mana regen- purchased a Chalice this time since Katarina and Singed don't need mana. The Lux was really weak, so I purchased Tabi instead of Treads. We took bot tower at 10 minutes, dragon right after. Snowballed really hard.
