AP Support Nami

By raccoomph
Why should YOU build AP NAMI ?
First and foremost, AP Nami scales incredibly well into Mid and Late game, with high damage output which will help your team tremendously in the later stages of the game; her Aqua Prison will do insane damage and your Ebb and Flow will be a high damage poke as well as a rewarding heal after hitting your opponent.

You'll be your ADC's favourite, with your high damage you'll be able to poke the opponent and give opportunity for them to get quick kills and get some of your own! No matter how bad your early game gets you'll (hopefully) be able to redeem yourself in the late game.

- Just be aware that Nami is a very Mana hungry champ and you'll have to watch your mana consumption.
Q - Aqua Prison
Early game you'll use this to poke the enemy and get easy damage as well as CC-ing the enemy laner, this will create opportunity for your ADC to poke the enemy as well. Later game this will be your biggest damage dealing ability and be used to start your combo (Q > E > W or R > E > Q > W )

W - Ebb and Flow
Early game you will be using this when your ADC goes in for hits or to use after your Q for better damage when poking the enemy, the heal you (or your ADC) gets is very handy when exchanging hits to ensure you can last longer in fights.

E - Tidecaller's Blessing
Early game this will be used to empower your ADC when they go into fights or as a way to gain a speed boost to get away from champs to avoid deaths, later on it'll be used roughly the same, empowering you or the carry of the team in teamfights.

R - Tidal Wave
The best way to use your ULT is to knock up enemies and do damage at the start of a fight or used while they're trying to get away to ensure you get a kill. This will be amazing in teamfights as it allows your team to get in while you do massive damage from the back in the later stages of the game; the cooldown is relatively low so use it as much as you please.

The best way to max your abilities is Q > W > E, as your E isn't the most helpful after early game except for getting away with the nice speed boost it provides, your Aqua Prison is priority as it'll do the most damage after the HUGE powerspike you get after Luden's Tempest, and then your Ebb and Flow as it'll do big damage by bouncing between enemies during fights as well as heal yourself and
Luden's Tempest - Nami's biggest powerspike in the game, you go from decent damage to very good incredibly quick, after Luden's you and your ADC will be able to successfully dive the enemy and most likely come out with a kill on your back, Luden's also helps with your wave clear as you'll do a lot more damage to minions although beware the amount you're killing to prevent stunting your ADC and gold stunting YOURSELF more importantly.

Ionian Boots of Lucidity - These are by far the best boots you can buy when playing Nami, the ability haste you get is essential to maximise the damage you do the enemy champs in shorter fights and help you secure kills.

Shadowflame - The 100 AP and the Magic Penertration you get from Shadowflame is a big help, especially the AP which is the most important part. The best 2nd item to get.

Rabadon's Deathcap - An ABSOLUTE must have for AP Nami, you can get it at any point during the game and the reward for it is HUGE, the 120 AP as well as the extra 35% is essential ! I recommend getting this directly after Shadowflame but it's to preference.

Cosmic Drive - Another must have, everything about this item is helpful, doesn't give as much AP as other items but it's all around helpful considering the move speed buffs and ability haste that'll help a TON.

Horizon Focus - Solid last item, this is the item you can exchange for any situational items such as Archangel's Staff, Morellonomicon or Rylai's Crystal Scepter (even Zhonya's Hourglass if you absolutely need it)
