Hello,
I`m new to LoL (played though beta, and for many years DotA), so i`d like to see opinion, which heroes to unlock, coz obviously i don't have funds to unlock them all. I`ve made a list of heroes i have already:
- Alistar
- Corki
- Garen
- Jax
- Pantheon
- Rammus
- Tristana
- Xin Zhao
Below i`m making a list with heroes i wanna unlock:
- Yorick (6,3k IP) - i dont have many heroes for solo top and this hero seems to be a good choice for solotop as he has great surviving abilities and becoz he is capable to tank and push seems to be reasonal pick in ranked games
- Rumble (4,8k IP) - again to strengthen solotop heroes rooster; reasons almost the same as to Yorick
- Soraka (450 IP) - from what i`ve seen this hero is must have as support as he has tons of heal and other stuff making him great aspect to support AD carry very efficient
- Blitzcrank (3,15k IP) - gives great lane control + i loved to play Pudge in DotA ^__^
- Nunu (450 IP) - great support or jungle hero
- Ryze (450 IP) - seems to be reasonable cheap nuker to solomid
- Morgana (1,35k IP) - great nuking and cc abilities
- Gragas (3,15k IP) - probably best nuker in the game

That would give me 16 heroes to start playing ranked games. Plz share your opinions with me about the heroes to buy. With this rooster i think i`ll have every role in the team covered with some kind of maneuver in case of bans or some counterpicking.

Thanks in advance for every backup provided.

Hello,
First of all: Dont play any ranked game before u get at least the double amount of champs and at least 2 rune pages
After that i saw you got some nice picks like gragas, yorik, morgana, xin zhao but i think there are champs u really need:
to be cheap: ww, ashe, mundo, amumu, malphite
to be honest: renekton, irelia, brand, vladimir, ezreal, nautilus, nocturne,cassiopeia

Your list is really, really good. All of these champions have their place even in tourneys. Morgana is abused like hell, while Yorick is one of the safest top picks in the game and can out-lane anybody with ease.

I suggest getting Cho'Gath if you want to get a feel for sustainable champions. If played well, Cho is a monster, too.

Hi again,
First of all thx for feedback.
I`ve unlocked Yorick (btw how do u make those icons near hero names? :) ) and he is rly good hero with excellent lane control.
To be discussing a suggestions of heroes who r worthy to be signed on the list now:
- Warwick - i rly dont understand what he gives to the team - has no slow, weak disable and its his ulti (channeling can be stopped by any stun), he hasnt got any silence spell neither
- Ashe - i agree that this pick is very reasonable considering price only, however because i have bought Corki and Tristana already she wont be my priority, also as AD carry she lacks escape mechanism, which Tristana, Graves or Corki has. She also doesnt have any 'steroid' skill, which makes her not rly a good choice
- Mundo - seems more to be pub hero, rather than one to use in competetive gaming
- Amumu - i looked on skills of this hero and he seems to be rly nice one - he has everything that is needed in teamplay - stun, aoe dmg, survival - i`ll definately unlock him later on
- Malphite - very nice pick indeed

Edit:
renekton, irelia, brand, vladimir, ezreal, nautilus, nocturne,cassiopeia - i c they r very good heroes, but cost 6,3k each, so it`s hard for newbie to have them all ;) Mby later they`ll get cheaper or sth ^__^

Try Maokai if you like disruptive junglers. He's gone down to 4800 IP :)

Also, practice Jax a lot. He has all of the thing you need and you can easily improve while playing this champion. One of the best tops in-game IMO.

Considering your thoughts about Ashe, she is all ult, permaslow and farming until later stages of the game come.

Don't underestimate Mundo, he can stick to anyone like glue and has lots of health while dealing damage. While jungling, he clears camps like crazy.

I`m trying some heroes i havent played when they are free for a week and i`ve played few champions i was suggested to play:
- Amumu - this hero is a monster + he is very fun to play ^__^ I leveled up in jungle w/o any runes faster than solo lane (ganked top beeing level 4, when champs on lane were @ level 3). Beside very good hero, coz of AoE dmg and lots of CC - i`ve added him to my shortlist.
- Cho'Gath - played once this hero and i must admit he seems to be overall good, however if u know how to play him - i failed, but i`ll definately would like to try him out again.

I`ve also unlocked Rumble recently and just played only 1 game, although it was fun to play i didnt use his full potential, coz i have never played no mana dependent character before.

Tbh i started to think rather to specialize in certain positions i like to play (top, jungle and ad carry), because sooner or later i`ll have to buy runes.

HOW DARE YOU. Warwick is NOT useless. His ult? If they CC you in it, GOOD! It makes them waste CC on a more tankish champion and not the carry. CC doesn't make a champion good, it's the player and how the champion is played by the player. Go look up some warwick games on Youtube. Hes one of THE BEST junglers in my opinion. He has crazy survivabiliy which helps in team fights again. PFFFFFF not usefull to the team my ***.

Ashe is also a decent pick. Yeah she has no escape mechanism. Neither does soraka, gragas, a lot of the ad carries, and a decent ammount of AP carries. Thats what flash/ghost/heal(lower levels) are for.

If you try nunu try my guide if you want to jungle and actually do damage. Going to work on a support nunu soon. And working on solotop also.

True, was about to say that.

But still, if they CC you while you ult, your damage output is drastically reduced. WW's sustain is high, yes, and he has one of the most destructive ganks after 6, but his response to counter-jungling is quite, you know, meh, and his jungle speed is fairly slow because of no AoE spells.
