So was anyone else let down with Nami I bought her bundle the day she came out, and have never been able to use her well, I have only played a few dozen games with her and most have been losses. I have had better luck with other supports so I have just been using them.

Her heal is weak, her stun is hard to land, her buff is okay, and her ult is huge but easy to dodge. Just wondering what you guys think.

Her ult is easy to dodge, yes, but in the heat of a team fight, it'll help quite a bit actually.

While all of her skills seem inferior to say, sona support (i find their ability types pretty similar)
Her stun is absolutely amazing. AoE stun, on a low CD? it's so good if you can land it. I've had nami's solely change the direction of a team fight because she was able to bubble 3+ people.

She's definitely a hard support to pick up - like janna. However, getting good at her is really rewarding.
If I helped you out, be sure to throw me a +Rep!

She can fell unreliable but is good in the right hands. Whenever I play her I feel the effect of the options I take (stun this, ult that, heal this, buff that, etc) and that's really all I want from her. I think her passive could have more impact with a slight buff and maybe W bounce on allies as well (with a restriction of up to once per ally) but the rest is good material.
Thank you Byron for 2014's loudest laugh up till today

On the weak side imo, her damage is poor and her heal is her only reliably strong ability. She heals for a decent amount but I don't think it's quite on the level of Soraka.

A champion you need to aim all your skills with.
If you can do that, you're good.


+rep me if you think I did something cool enough to deserve it!

I feel like the versatility of her kit is good, and her kit seems solid to me. There are stronger supports and often in solo queue playing aggressive supports like taric, leona, and sona to snowball your lane is usually going to be more effective. I still think you could play her and be quite successful though but probably need some practice. I still feel like her versatility is her strength, kind've like lulu.

I haven't actually played her much but read some stuff about her and based on her kit those are my thoughts. I would recommend reading astrolia's guide if you want to learn her, it is quite good. I intend to buy her tomorrow and start practicing up on her so I can hopefully give a better answer later. :)

Yeah I wouldn't feel bad, her q seems particularly hard to land because of the delay.
