Introduction

A U T H O R


Hey everyone! I'm King Naki, a high diamond elo player and content creator for all things mid/support. I'm streaming daily on twitch so feel free to catch me on there! I've been playing LoL since late-2017 and have managed to climb the ladder due to my previous background in competitive play. I really enjoy creating guides and helping newer players get a grasp on the champions they want to play and also League in general. Thank you for checking out my guides and I hope they'll help you skyrocket through ranked or simply give you a better understanding of a champion you'd like to try out! :)


Role

S U P P O R T


The support role in League of Legends is probably the most underrated role in terms of popularity, but in terms of importance and play-making this role truly shines. Supports are almost always the kings/queens of mid to late game team-fighting and can literally turn the tides of battle in seconds through their heavy crowd-control abilities and team-buffs.

Your main objective as a support player is to seek out a win-condition on your team and do everything in your power to get them to carry your team to victory. This win-condition is usually your ADC (attack damage carry), but can also very much be your mid-laner, top-laner, and also your jungler (depending on the class they are playing (obviously an assassin will have significantly higher carry potential than a tank).
Because of this, it is sometimes your duty to choose who you want to support in your team’s struggle to victory. If your ADC is feeding and not performing admirably, do not dump your key-ability buffs or items on them as effects will be negligible, instead use your items/abilities on your mid-laner, top-laner, or jungler in a skirmish or team-fight. Ex. If your Jhin is 0/3/0 and your Katarina is 3/0/0, you want to prioritize getting her to carry the game as she already has a lead.

Your side-objectives as a support include shot-calling objectives and warding. Warding is difficult to learn and keep tabs on so I highly recommend you Youtube high elo support warding guides that will help you create vision and opportunity for your team. Shot-calling objectives is a difficult task initially that you will learn as you learn the macro (map knowledge and control of the map) in League of Legends. Generally speaking, you always want to be looking to make Baron, Dragon, and Turret shot-calls based on the situation at hand.

The priority is usually inhibitor > turret > baron > dragon (higher depending on type) > scuttle.

Always keep this in mind and direct your team to victory by using anonymous pings (simply click the ping button without selecting an option on the map), as pinging anonymously takes away stigma from your score/where you are standing as a player. Watching high-level Korean play, it can be inferred that spam-pinging is highly effective and you will literally see your teammates move to the objective you are anonymously spam pinging if you do this in the correct time-window and manner. Do NOT spam-ping randomly or too often as this will confuse your team and decrease your chance of getting them to converge on objectives later in the game.

This guide will teach you the individual abilities, runes, and items of the support you are playing so that you can build in an advanced way that will improve your chances of victory.


Ranked

C L I M B I N G


If you wish to climb with the support role you will need to follow simple measures that all slightly increase your chance of victory, forming a bigger percentage that increases your victory in the end.

First and foremost, if your team is toxic even in the slightest, mute them. You can either do /muteall or just mute the individual affecting your mental. You do not need chat to communicate to your team, all you need is pings, especially in lower elos where not many players call out enemy summoner spells.

Keep your champion pool small when climbing, usually ranging from 2-3 champions so that you are not constantly learning/readjusting to playstyles and keeping your winrates consistent. This isn’t just a random tip either, it is literally fact that maintaining small champion pools helps you climb. Usually these champions should be meta-oriented even in the slightest, so look up some tier-lists to help you get an idea of what champions are doing well in the current meta. If you disregard the meta, you can still climb but only if you are consistently proficient on said champion.

Try not to tilt whatsoever as that mental carries on to future games and statistically decreases your performance. If you feel tilted, take a break and come back to your climbing sessions later on.

Now without further ado, let's jump into the builds!
Runes

D O M I N A T I O N

  • KEYSTONE
  • Dark Harvest: Very effective rune for Lux as it resets during teamfights or skirmishes on kills/assists, making you able to utilize it multiple times.
  • RUNE
  • Eyeball Collection: Since this is an AP heavy build, this rune further maximizes your AP and makes up for the fact that Lux doesn't get a lot of gold to purchase AP items due to being a support.


Runes

P R E C I S I O N


  • RUNE
  • Presence of Mind: Ties the whole rune build together and allows Lux to always have mana during teamfights/skirmishes and also significantly decreases her Final Spark cooldown on kills/assists.
  • RUNE
  • Coup de Grace: Free damage rune that works exceptionally well with Lux’s kit as it requires the enemy to be below a certain HP threshold to activate, perfect as Lux is a burst mage who often finishes enemies with Final Spark.




Summoner

S P E L L S


  • SPELL
  • Flash: Key summoner spell on every champion.
  • SPELL
  • Ignite: Harass rune in lane. Applies a -40% healing debuff for the duration. Amazing against healing champions such as Soraka and Nami. Time the cooldown of the enemy Heal as Ignite has a shorter cooldown and can be used strategically to engage when the enemy doesn't have Heal up.

Abilities

B R E A K D O W N

  • ABILITY
  • Prismatic Barrier: An AoE traveling boomerang shield that shields Lux and allies the first time it passes through and then doubles the shield the second time it passes through. This ability does not have amazing scaling nor is it always reliable as Janna’s Eye of the Storm or Lulu’s Help, Pix!.
  • ABILITY
  • Lucent Singularity Lux’s main poking ability. This ability has two parts, if you cast it on an area and leave it, it will create a slow field. If you cast it and press the ability again, it will pop and deal damage. This ability is usually instantly popped to deal poke damage but can also be used as a slow zone for zoning off enemy champions.
  • ULTIMATE
  • Final Spark: A pure damage ultimate that is best used while the enemy is crowed controlled in some way. Very effective sniping ability that takes time to master. This ultimate also decreases it’s own cooldown on kills/assists so make sure to use it as a finisher. Also pops and reapplies the Illumination passive debuff, so be sure lock an enemy down with Light Binding and then use Final Spark to deal significantly increased burst damage.
Items

C O R E

  • CORE
  • Sorcerer's Shoes: Mage boots that provide magic penetration against magic resistances.
  • CORE
  • Luden's Tempest: Amazing item that provides 20% cooldown reduction and significantly increases your mana pool and ability power. Also has a burst passive that builds up while moving/attacking enemies. Save this passive and use it on key-targets you are trying to burst.
  • CORE
  • Rabadon's Deathcap: Very impactful ability power increasing item that boosts the ability power of ALL your previous ability power items.
  • CORE
  • Void Staff: A great late-game item that penetrates enemy magic resistance. Do not build early as enemies would not have built significant amounts of magic resistance for this item to take full effect.


Items

O P T I O N A L

  • OPTIONAL
  • Zhonya's Hourglass: Almost always the better choice over Banshee's Veil. Works especially well for AD assassins who dive you. Do you not use too early as the key is to get the enemy AD to waste crucial skills on you.
  • OPTIONAL
  • Morellonomicon: Rare opportunity item that works well in negating the enemy’s team healing. A must get item against healing-enchanters such as Soraka and Nami. Only get this item if your team’s AP mage/assassin is not buying it, otherwise it’s a waste.
