Introduction: The Idea

Hi guys, I am Nonkinator and I play support only in League. Besides playing Braum, Bard and other regular supports, I really enjoy trying new champions as a support. The idea about Poppy was pretty simple: Her W must be pretty good to protect an ADC (in 2k17 LUL) from Rengar, Lee, Zac and their friends. So I tried it and it went pretty well :)

Why to pick Poppy as a support:

Poppy got some sick supporting skills:
- Her Passive can destroy the blue trinket, give you a shield, share a minion, do damage, etc.

- Her Q can do damage and slow the enemies, this is not THAT important, but still usefull.
- Her W can protect your ADC from all kinds of jumps and dashes (especially ganks), also speed.
- Her E can be used to knock the enemies into a wall or just push anyone away from your ADC.
- With her Ultimate, Poppy can interrupt, do damage or simply send people out of space.

- You will do tons of damage
- Poppy is very tanky
- Lots of CC over all
- Works with APCs as well, especially because you do AD.

=> Good support

When to pick Poppy as a support:

Things that will help Poppy:
- Own ADC got some CC (Jhin, Vayne, Ashe, Cait)
- Own ADC can do some burst (f.e. MF)
- Enemie Botlane got few CC (NOT Morgana)
- Enemies got jumps, dashes, etc. that can be blocked by your W (Rengar, Lee Sin, Zac, Lucian, etc. )
- Enemies got no escape spells or not much mobility
- Enemies like to stand close to walls :)
- You need a tank
- ...

Things that are bad for Poppy
- Opposite of things above
- Getting damage before Level 3
- Interruptions of her Ultimate
- ...


Poppy is a good allrounder and can be picked early (People will think you are the Top-Laner) but you alwys have to estimate the Pros and Cons in the current situation

Items

At first, there are two MUST-HAVES:


Sightstone

As a support, one of your maijor tasks is to ward so you will definetly need this item.
Targon's Brace

A support without a support item is use- (or more precisely money-) less. The green item is the best for Poppy because sharing minions with your passive works so good (It is an easy way to get your shield and some money). The blue supporting item would be useless anyways.

Whether you decide to combine these two items or to build their seperated versions is up to you, the current situation, the enemies, how well your team is performing, etc:

1. Alternative: Building Ruby Sightstone and Face of the Mountain
- Especially good to have a shield more for your ADC
2. Alternative: Building Eye of Equinox and 1 item of your choice
- Gives the opportunity to buy one item more
______________________________________________________________________________________
I always recommend building Locket of the Iron Solari and Knight's Vow too. This items give you a shield to keep your team alive, damage reduction for your ADC and some good tank stats too. Building it early in the game will protect your whole team and especially you.

Everything else is up to you! (It should be kind of supporting or tanky)


Here are some of my favorites:
- Righteous Glory (Health, armor and better engage)
- Frozen Mallet (Health, damage and slow)
- Spirit Visage (Health and Magic Resistance, works very well with Redemption and Knight's Vow)
- Gargoyle Stoneplate (More tank, less damagage)
- ...

Summary

So, that's basically it :D
I don't want to tell you what to do exactly in every situation because you should try it out yourself and find out, what's the best for you. Try different things and see what works best for, just don't forget to slam some enemy ADCs into walls.

Thank you very much for your interest in my little Poppy-Support-Guide! If there is something in your mind, feel free to tell my in the discussion and please also feel free to rate this guide.

Good luck and have fun with Poppy support!

Edit: Thank you very much guys, I never expected this to get this many views :D
