Hello. I main supports it's the role i'm having fun with and probably the role which is very rewarding. Recently kill lane supports started poping up in my games and they can pretty much shut down our adc + traditional support lane.I mostly play Sona,sometimes Soraka or Janna,Nami,Lulu.I see enemy Lux,Zyra and even Lissandra supports in bot lane and i think they're more valuable than traditonal supports (well that's how i feel,correct me ahead if i'm wrong).They offer really good cc,they ward and after laning they are really valuable in teamfights because they do really good damage,most of their abilities are AOE and they can even be offtanks because they get some money from the kills(they get much more gold than a traditonal support).In games like this i feel so weak compared to them and i'm getting an urge to ditch traditional supports for kill lane supports + the traditionals supports get nerfed over and over again and if u are a kill lane support and get a bad adc u can carry yourself. I ward ,don't sit in bushes,say ss and try to be agressive as I can to set yp kill for my carry,but in situations like this you just feel out played because they have really good kits and so much cc.
I really want to hear your opinions and please correct where I was wrong.

Do you have any suggestions or resources for general Elise Support playstyle? I saw it a couple of times in LCS and I like Elise and Support so I wanted to try it. :P I played it once but things didn't turn out so well in lane, I think I was with a draven too. T_T

I maxed Q and built tanky support items.

What makes Elise support strong? I did feel like I could do significant damage at least and of course the stun is great for support, but what should Elise support focus on doing in lane? Harass with Q then try to jump them?
Thanks to GrandMasterD for my sig!
