I need help with solo top. I've been trying Lanewick recently since he's kind of a damage/tank hybrid, but a few problems I run into are:

1. What items to buy in what sequence. I've looked at a few of the guides here but they mostly focus on a jungle/ad carry kind of Warwick, but I know there's some way I can make it work.

2. When to just poke and when to go in for the kill. I fought Xin recently and it mostly never ends well on my part. I have to either drag him to the tower by hugging the hell out of it, or try to scare him away which doesn't work because he just charges + pop up + mass dmg and you're done. I'm only using him as an example, but it still sucks none the less.

3. When to buy wards and how many at a time. Sometimes I feel like its a waste when you dump 150+ gold on wards that you plant that sometimes never come in handy, but at the same time if feels like you always need them because you never know when that jungler will gank you.

Those are just a few of the problems I face. But, I want to get to learn because 90% of the time we never have someone who solo's top, so I volunteer but I suck at it. -.-

Hey Matt, Lanewick is actually one of my old mains so I think I could teach you a thing or two pretty easily. Add me in game (Sanity Complex) and we can work on that. ATM I am working on my EUW account with powerleveling it atm, but I'll still check in everyday at least once or twice to see if A) people are on that want lessons, B) to accept friend requests and chat about setting up a specific time if you truly want to make sure you can get a lesson or two in
Thank you Arcana for the Signatures!

Yo Rippin, I'd be more than glad to help you with last hitting and champion mechanics if you want to. Add me in-game (Sanity Complex) or PM me here so we can sort out the details

Haha thanks Griff, and yeah, with ranked you win some and lose some, but will always lose with an udyr who is DETERMINED to pull off that 1v5 even when he's failed the last seven times T_T

Could I get some help with jungling Gero? I have the basics down, like what items to buy in the beginning, how to get leashes and where all the monsters are. I can jungle throughout the game and get successful ganks, but I usually fall behind in level and most of the people in the game are a level above me. I also don't really know what items to buy at what time and which ones to buy depending on the other team. I'm level 22, IGN: GrayeWolf on the NA server. Thanks!

I could use a little help if you have the time(EU-W). Now the questions:
I've been playing for like 2-3 months, just got lvl 30 ~1 week ago.
I love tanking and supporting.
I think Rammus and Shen are my favourite champs(though often banned in ranked/normal draft)
I own 20 champs (and 6 more on a second account), so yeah, i play multiple champs.

Learning new champs, roles and techniques would be super nice, especially jungle-ganks and AP mid.
