Hello everyone! My name is Shadow Imp and I have been playing League of Legends since the middle of season 5. I started off as a Midlaner (Akali main) however after some trial and error found I have a knack for the Support Role. My main now is Nami and after quite a bit of research and time, decided I will throw together this guide in hope to help those who are wanting to learn or even master her. I am open to suggestions and comments, please feel free as long as they are constructive.

Nami's Story

Nami's Lore

Pros / Cons


+ Great Support Choice
+ Great synergy with most all ADC and team comps
+ High levels of CC and peel potential
+ Lane sustain with heals and Auto-Attack buffs
Nami is a Great support choice whether it be in solo queue or even a premade team. With her high levels of CC, peel, lane sustain she is she sure to turn the tide of any game to your favor.

- Hard to master
- Very squishy
- Mana hungry
- Team success is heavily reliant on the your skill
- Strong knowledge of positioning is a MUST
There is a downfall with Nami and that is that you must be able to hit your Q skillshot and know positioning. She is very mana hungry especially in early lane phase.

Skill Order



Now I am sure you are all wondering as to why I max my E (Tidecaller's Blessing before my Q(Aqua Prison) when I have stated that it is highly important to hit the Q. It is very simple really and that has to with Auto-Attack buff given on the E vs the minute cooldown and increase damage output on the Q; in my opinion it is greater in team fights to have the E maxed than to have the q maxed. If positioning is correct you will be on the backline with your ADC and not in range for your Q. However this entirely situational depending upon team comp and how you feel with this champion.

Spellthief's Edge is a standard opening items on Nami as it gives +5 AP, 2 gold per 10 seconds and 25% Base Mana Regenalong side its unique passive that grants + 10 gold when spell or basic attacks damage enemy champions or buildings

Ancient Coin is also an acceptable opening items on Nami if say the team is low mobility and will need that extra speed boost. In laning phase it is also beneficial as it gives 25% Base Mana Regen and 5% cooldown reduction with its unique passive of being granted 4 gold and 5 health from being near a dying minion without dealing the final blow

Now a new item I would like to discuss that is an essential to Nami build has only recently been added in patch 6.22 and would like to say that as it is now is OP.
+400 Health
75% Base Health Regen
75% Base Mana Regen
Unique Passive: 10% heal and shield power
Unique Active: Target an area within 5500 range. After 2.5 second, call down a beam of light to heal allies for 150 - 490 (based on target's level), deals 10% of maximum health true damage to enemy champions and 250 true damage to minions (120 second cooldown). Can be used while dead.
That's right!!! You can use it while you are dead!!!!
