You don't even have to dash out. You can also consider it a free gap closer to get in range for Q's. Since I run 0/21/9 with full defensive runes there's no way you're going to die anyway.
I know, I play quite a bit of Braum.

"Quite a bit" seems like a bit of an understatement. Weren't you within the top 1000 Braum players world last season?

I need to review my Braum item build as I've always liked the 0-21-9 build + tank runes on him but even with Relic Shield I end up feeling starved for gold without the extra income from the utility tree.

Hm, I run 0/16/14 on nearly every support and never really feel gold starved. Possibly because Im an oldentimer from when supports got less than 0 monies.

Yea....that's probably why the 0-21-9 doesn't make me feel gold starved on Braum

Runes: HyPen, Armor, CDR, Mv Spd Quints
Masteries: 9-21-0

Summary:

Thought I was picking Nasus into Maokai, but it turned out to be Renekton. Ouch. If Master Yi and Ahri hadn’t been beasts we probably would have lost this one.

Ren does stupid damage. I even stayed away from him when his rage meter was above half and it didn’t matter. He just jumped on me and killed me. Picked up some armor and he still killed me. Couldn’t get near the minion wave to farm. Had to wait until he started roaming to pick up some farm and then eventually Master Yi and I were able to team up and kill him.

If I had to do this matchup over, I would probably start either Armor Quints or Armor Quints and Health Seals and start Cloth Armor and just Teleport back to lane when I got low on mana.

My teleports didn’t amount to much, but I was able to roam a bit and pick up some kills. Then it was pretty much follow Master Yi and Ahri and and clean up the leftovers.

Glad for a win, but totally got carried on this one.

Just a quick update. I've been doing my placements on my smurf account that I just recently got to 30th level. My champion pool on that account is quite a bit smaller, but I've had some success with Jarvan IV (totally expecting some nerfs on him to be coming down the pipe even though he offers plenty of outplay options for most of the meta champs) and even broke out Elise in my penultimate placement match and went 4-2-14 in a victory.

Will have a pic up later to commemorate making Silver 4 on that account.

Not sure how that worked out as I believe I went 6-4 on both accounts and feel like my individual play was better on my main account that ended up in Bronze 1.

Quoted:
Your MMR must be very high if you're getting 30 LP a game o_o

I don't play J4 like, at all, but from what I've heard, Chilling smite is super good on him. Just out of curiosity, why did you end up going with the farming upgrade instead?


Now that I've figured out how to sell a second tier jungle item without costing myself gold, I've been starting Ranger's Trailblazer after Hunter's Machete on all my junglers to try and quickly farm up to 6th level and then trading it in for Stalker's Blade. Chilling Smite adds quite a bit of effectiveness in ganks especially for junglers with a low amount of CC and/or let's you outright burst slow health targets with its true damage spike. We'll see if this continues to hold true if they actually go through with the changes to the range on Smite that are currently being tested on the PBE.

Runes: Hyd Pen, 5 Health + 4 Armor, AP, AP Quints
Masteries: 12-15-3

Summary:

This game was even until about the 23 minute mark and then we steam rolled them with three quick tower pickups. Our Graves had connection issues throughout the game which contributed to his early deaths, but despite that he played relatively well throughout the game.

I opted for Karma as she is the only support I have on this account that is a decent matchup for Morgana. I got chunked down pretty good in lane at one point so I decided to back even though I had misgivings about leaving Graves alone in a 2v1. And sure enough he died to Vayne and Morgana shortly after I arrived at the fountain.

In lane I could have done a better job of dodging Morg’s Dark Binding though I found that as long as Vayne wasn’t around to proc her Silver Bolts on me the shield from Inspire was sufficient to mitigate most of Morg’s damage.

I felt like a did a good job cycling through my abilities during team fights. Getting shields on the right people and locking down Vi with Focused Resolve when she got into our back line.

Yay for Sliver IV, which is better than on my main and equals the rank and division I settled into in Season 4.

Onward toward Gold!
