Introduction & Credentials
Hello! My name is ShoDesu AKA J4NNA AKA Hook Theory. I have hit challenger multiple times during season 12/13 playing support! For the longest time I was only focused on climbing, but now I am shifting that into creating support content and trying to help others! I stream Mon-Fri 11:30 AM PST - 5 PM PST at and also have a YouTube channel where I post reguluarly at I'm happy to answer any questions! :)
Items in the guide are updated for this current patch. Items are out dated in the video but will give you information on how to play Nami.
Pros & Cons

Strong Crowd Control: Nami has multiple crowd control abilities, including her Aqua Prison (Q) bubble and her ultimate, Tidal Wave (R), which can knock up enemies and disrupt team fights.

Sustain and Healing: Nami's W ability, Ebb and Flow, provides healing to her allies, making her great at keeping the team alive during skirmishes and team fights.

Engage and Disengage: Nami's ultimate, Tidal Wave, can be used both offensively and defensively. It can be used to initiate fights, catch out enemies, or disengage from unfavorable engagements.

Poke and Harass: With her W and E abilities, Nami can poke and harass enemies in the lane, making it difficult for the opponents to farm or engage.

Movement Speed Buff: Her passive, Surging Tides, grants a movement speed buff to allies she targets with her abilities, helping with kiting, chasing, and positioning.


Mana Costs: Nami's abilities can be mana-intensive, especially during the early game. Misusing abilities or spamming spells may lead to mana issues.

Skillshot Reliance: Nami's Aqua Prison (Q) and Tidal Wave (R) are skillshot abilities, meaning they require accurate aiming and prediction to land successfully.

Squishy: As a support champion, Nami is relatively squishy, making her vulnerable to assassins and burst damage champions.

Dependent on Allies' Positioning: Some of Nami's abilities, such as her Ebb and Flow (W), require proper positioning of her allies to be most effective. If teammates are not in range or mispositioned, it can reduce the impact of her abilities.

Overall, Nami is a well-rounded support champion with strong crowd control, healing, and utility. Her versatility makes her a popular pick, but her effectiveness in games can depend on the skill of the player and the team's coordination. As with any champion in League of Legends, understanding her strengths and weaknesses and playing accordingly is essential for success.
Passive - Surging Tides
Nami's abilities grant Surging Tides to her target, granting them bonus movement speed for a short duration. This synergizes well with her supportive playstyle, aiding allies in positioning and engaging or disengaging from fights.
Q - Aqua Prison
Nami releases a bubble in a target direction, dealing damage to enemies hit and temporarily stunning them. This skillshot ability can be challenging to land but provides significant crowd control and initiation potential. When empowered by her ultimate, the Aqua Prison's stun duration is increased, making it even more effective in team fights.
W - Ebb and Flow
Nami unleashes a stream of water that bounces between allies and enemies. Allies hit by the ability are healed, while enemies take damage. Proper positioning of allies is crucial to maximize the healing potential, especially when empowered by Mantra. The empowered Ebb and Flow will increase the healing amount and bounce back for additional healing or damage.
E - Tidecaller's Blessing
Nami blesses an ally's basic attack or abilities, causing them to deal bonus magic damage and slow enemies they hit. This ability is excellent for empowering your team's carry and providing utility during skirmishes and fights. When enhanced with Mantra, the slow effect is significantly increased, making it even more impactful in team engagements.
R - Tidal Wave
Nami summons a massive wave that surges forward, knocking up enemies hit and granting movement speed to allies it passes through. Tidal Wave can be used for both initiation and disengagement, making it a powerful tool in team fights. When empowered by Mantra, the movement speed bonus for allies is substantially increased, enhancing its utility.
