Situational Warding consists of simply warding the gank bush in bot and top lane.
that bush in river that people come in to gank you from. or the two bushes already in your lane. If your a good player you don't need to ward these places you just know. Yet again, its situational.
Defensive Warding is a little tricky because you have to know when to do it, but it really pays off. This is most effective for a passive player that likes to sit back and farm, not really about the kills. If your playing from "Blue Team" side. You ward right under tri-bush but you position it so you can see anybody who comes into the gank bush, or anybody coming in from river. Although you cannot see into tri bush and into gank bush you can see when they get in there. A player using this technique has to be familiar with using the map. You can also ward the tri bush and a little over blue buff covering baron the entrance to blue buff and the gank bush giving you way more vision... for 75 more gold? Definetely worth it. 3 minutes of straight farm.
Aggresive Warding is obviously used for a team that likes to rake up those kills early and like to invade the enemy jungle. If your top you ward tri bush. if your mid you need two wards but its better. you ward the entrance to their jungle from mid to red buff. so you can see river, entrance to wraiths, and entrance to mid lane from the enemy side. If your on bot, you can ward their gank bush.. or you can go pro and wardright under blue covering entrance to blue gank bush and a little bit of dragon. then if you like you can ward their gank bush but that's situational. Having wards on the map allows your team to safely move about and allows you to counter jungle and move using exact location other than perception. Giving you a one-up over the enemy. Most people think its dumb, but ive seen games change because of a simple ward. If my top lane is being aggresive i can place wards in an aggresive position to better help them over take their lane. Helping the team greatly and vice-versa. Ward timing and ward placement has alot to do with how the game plays out. If they don't have a jungler, You won't need to be placing many defense wards... be more passive about it.. save some wards. help mid... push lane. Be productive. Aside from warding, you also need to know when to counter-ward. It doesn't help to place a ward somewhere if they already have a ward there. You want to do it when they don't know. You want map control. That's your role.
You provide your team with map control, territory, roaming vision, and light ganks. The ganks may be light but remember that this will only work if your team is compiled of already advanced players that wont die or overextend. It's very rare for it to be the jungler's fault that mid died, or that solo top died. In reality most solo tops, and solo mids over extend all the time and get caught by the enemy jungle. So without further delay, let me start with the build.
(Dragon and baron nashor are practically the same ward scenario just that you flip it.
UNIQUE SKILLS: So this new play style is all about vision, as i have rephrased over and over. Make sure you have read the link i gave earlier on top. If you haven't here it is again. http://learntheleague.com/?page_id=121 This will give you the vision needed to make that gank happen to take dragon early in the game and to have vision and territory advantage throughout the game. I have starting trying this with evelyn, but i will try with other champion as well. Just give me time. I started at evelyn to see if she could have a role that fits her champion.
Let me conclude with the fact that. This play style feels very weird to play, and you have many options because since you are not taking wolfs you have more time than the enemy jungler to get to mid. You take blue, place ward in top tri bush(for jungler gank) and you move on to mid then bot. you have options tho. you can stay top or hurry bot and stay bot.. alwasy try and stay in a lane when you can.. hold mid for ap when they need to buy .. you are support you can support in holding lanes also. no prob. And remember to relax and stay calm. You can't get mad because no one ganked when your ward was up and then they ganked when your ward expired.. it happens.. don't freak. just play your best. Your top shouldn't be overextending anyways. If this doesn't work for you then your team isn't doing something good. Or it just doesn't work for you for whatever reason. Give me feedback. If you find better ways to build evelyn or other tactics i should try. Let me know. This is new and its very sensitive. Try new things. Have ambition.
