See I have discovered my problem, I can not for the life of me beat my minions to last hit quick enough and cringe at the scores when I see others with plus 200 minion kills and me with a measly 70. I don't level as fast as I would like to and are soon left in the dust when it comes to going after other champions.

That's not to say I wouldn't mind help with plenty of other areas as well. I have learned some things from people but I still need to master wards, placement, last hitting, mastering champions that are right for me, things like that.

Now I have like others probably made the stupid mistake of buying a champion before trying him out so other than my cheap throw away champions such as Yi and Ashe I am currently pushing through with Swain for now.

I am looking for someone on the NA server who wouldn't mind taking me under their wing, not just a wash rinse repeat kind of thing. Someone who I can talk to, introduce me to videos and memberships where I can practice and converse with other league players rather than me just being someone to throw information at.

Now is anyone possibly interested?

I'd love to help ^^
and despite I do have an NA account,
I don't main it much. The Overmyynd shall
be around shortly, rest assured ^^.

There's 4 ways of last hitting like a boss.

Way 1:

You let the fiesty minions juke it out, in what
would seem an equal, straight-up fight in the minions
eyes. But then, once your target minion comes below X
amount of health, you intervene and deliver the killing blow.
This is one of the safest and most secure ways of farming.
Plus, it heavily dishonors the minion you stole from, which is
always a laugh.

Way 2:

You lay down a hail of auto-attacks on whichever minion you can
get your little mouse on. If you're lucky, this will net some last
hits. Plus it's very much a no-brainer. However, you risk being
caught out by your enemy, who can see which minion you're focusing
and thus become the target of their abilities, in an attempt to
chase you off, so you lose farm (and maybe exp). Known as zoning.

Way 3:

If you're laning with someone else, refer back to Way 1, in order
to see how to cheap-shot your teammate and potentially sabotage
your future relations, which in turn might lead to a series of
team-breaking comments from your partner. If you're unlucky, this
will cause you to lose. So best not use this option. Unless your
laning friend is a support and you're the carry of course!

Way 4:

Let your tower hit the minions while they're at full health.
Soon you'll see a pattern emerge; one which you will rightfully
be able to exploit. For the little fighter minions, around 2
tower shots or so reduce them enough in health for you to finish
them. For the caster minions (wannabe mage-types yeah) it takes
fewer shots.




That aside. Go into a custom game and practice these Ways all day!
If that's what you need. You don't even need to have any bots with you.
Also, getting some early damage items (plus your masteries and when you're
level 20, your runes) last-hitting will become easier, as your damage-output
is increased.

Also, do no grieve your loss of IP or RP on champions you do not like now.
The more the merrier and some people nearly have all champions. It gives you
more diversity, which you will realize in time.

Good luck !

Thanks LZ, I've been looking around and despite being rarely new RP the forums you move along a lot. Well then despite me about to get off I guess I will inform you of my time schedule. I am on eastern standard time and can be on from 10:30am to 3:30pm and 6:30pm to 10:30pm. This is however excluding some other extra things I participate in such as other forums, catching up on reading, thinhs like that. I was just giving you a time frame for you to do the math in your head and see what works best for you. But thank you for the tips and the reassurances. I'm not terrible as swain and have his moves down, I just need to improve on him greatly.

Herroooooo!

Lawl wow this guy knows me too well. Yes, i am Overmyynd, and i offer mentoring to almost all beginner level players that post on these forums. Ive got alot of free time since its summer and i am done with the one class i had to take (5 weeks to learn a whole semester's worth of microbiology, that about killed me >.<). Swain is a character i know quite a bit about, and last-hitting with him is EXTREMELY important, since not only does it give you the usual cash and EXP, but it also makes or breaks you where lane sustain is concerned. Its the difference between having to get a meike pendant and being able to go balls out and get a tome and a pot. Anyway, feel free to add me, my IGN is The Overmynd.

See you soon!

Thank you I'll be sure to, messing around with some other characters lately but since I spent so much on Swain I might as well know how to use him

Absolutely. He is OP and crazy survivable when sporting a Will of the Ancients and a Rod of Ages. If you are a mid laner, other champs you want to get that are pretty cheap would be Ryze and Veigar, and work on Brand, Cassiopeia, and LeBlanc later on. With this combo of characters you can counter most any other mid. Ziggs might be a good buy too.

Thanks, I've played brand before and already got the E->Q->W covered. As for the others I will check them out and see if they stick. I'll be on soon after my consideration of starting a blog as I start out from being somewhat terrible to hopefully really well.

Awesome, being a part of someone's blog would be a novel experience. Get it? 'Novel' Experience? Lawl. I gotta make myself laugh, because its not working for anyone else.
