Without further ado, here is your guide on how to own.
Your abilities will mostly be to support your team though,
and your Q will get you kills. Chase/escape enemies with
your E, aswell as allies if they are left behind. And if
someone is about to die (eg karthus ults) then put your
sheild on them. That sums up your abilities.
Start out with
Cloth Armorand a few health potions. Then pick a laning partner (laning partners are listed below). As the game progresses, try last hitting and staying out of harrasment range. When you get your 2nd Q you can start harrassing with your ally. When you go back next after you have enough gold buy
merc treadsand save up for
giants beltAfter the
giants beltmove on to complete your
thornmailis a great item as it sheilds from damage and reflects, which is especially usefull in your ult against AD champions. By mid game you should have almost completed your
Randuins Omenand started working on a
warmogswhich at that point you become a viable tank. Around this time you want to initiate team fights and support your carry so you can better assist your team. As final items, buy a sunfire for health and your ultimate and get a
guardian angelIf you have a
Guardian Angelyou need to always go in first. If your ults up use it, and refer to the summary for some rules of combat.

Here are some rules of combat:
1. If your health is above half and there are 3 or more enemies in your range, ult. This rule applys beyond level 9, mainly because you will deal a good portion of damage at that level along with the assistance of team mates.
2. If an ally is being chased at low health by multiple enemies, use either your slow, wind, or sheild to assist him. In some cases you can run back to him and attack them but mainly do this if your both fleeing. Otherwise dont get back into the fight.
3. Use both your Q and E as a one two combo. Land a slow then line up your wind to max your laning/farming potential. If your missing your Q alot then try not doing it so often. They only expect it when you keep trying.
