I play top and support and am trying to get better at killing minions when i go top basically last hitting. Is it weird to go to custom games and just practice on my last hit vs a bot?

Of course it's not weird, it's a great idea. Bots are actually super aggressive, and it's likely they'll harass you as much (maybe a little less) than a real player. I'd work my way up, though.

- Custom game, 1v1 mid lane vs bot
- Custom game, 5v5 top lane vs bots
- Co-op vs AI, beginner
- Co-op vs AI, intermediate
- Normal game

In all of these games, focus solely on last hitting for the first 20 minutes, and see how you go. You can focus on last hitting longer than 20 minutes, if you like, but generally speaking, you won't be farming that long in normal games.

It isn't weird at all. Apparently the Korean players actually practiced against bots to work on mechanics such as last hitting.

I try out new champions in custom games to get a feel for their auto attack animation so I can time my last hits (some champions have faster or slower animations than others) as well as get a range on their skills.

If I helped you out, +REP me ^_^

It does help. It's not weird.

But mechanics are much less needed than game intuition and sense so I'd recommend you actualyl play the game more adn care less abt mechanics


but ofc practicing last hitting is fine :P

Thank you jhoijhoi, YayaFTW, Keondre, GrandmasterD, Xaioli, Apfeljack, and LaCorpse for the amazing sigs!
