Wondering in ranked etc.. Say if your a champ like Orianna or lux who has good enough poke and auto attack range that you dont need ignite instead get it to harass and keep them from farming.

Or you could just accompany such a mid laner with a jungler who is capable of giving away, if not first, second blue buff. Problem solved, really.

No.

EDIT: ok that may have been a bit short, but it really isn't good. Most AP mids have mana issues but they can be fixed with masteries, runes and items (Doran's start). You should also get the second/third/fourth etc. blue buff so there really shouldn't be an issue in terms of mana. I'm pretty sure I'd prefer getting a Tear of the Goddess over using Clarity too.

Your saying the community and that high elo player is wrong.

High elo player? o_o

Guides on Mobafire aren't made by high elo players really, it's a site for the people by the people ^^

And yes, I am in fact saying the community is wrong if they have upvoted that guide (don't know which guide you're talking about but w/e) to become the highest rated guide.

Although Clarity can be a nice thing to have, choosing between the two, I'd actually rather take Heal.

Imagine this: You're going all out 1v1 vs. the enemy AP Mid. But then suddenly, out of nowhere: BOOM! HEAL!! We should all get it for mid now. Trust me, it's gonna be LEGEN- wait for it... - DARY.

I used it on Lux for a long time and it worked really well.

Then I learned how to manage my mana, changed my build, starting last-hitting with autoattacks and took Ignite instead.

Works much better now.

In short, Clarity isn't unviable because it's a useless spell; it's not. It's actually really handy. The problem is, the other options available are incredibly superior that it's not worth sacrificing a slot for.

Greater Seal of Scaling Mana Regeneration, Meditation and Blue Buff, along with some early mana regen (usually Doran's Rings) should suffice.
