No, I don't want a mentor in-game, for some reasons, but I want tips and help here

I'm level 14, with almost 7.5k IP. I want to be very good at one position and them buy a rune set for it...

This are the options (based on the meta): Jungler, solo top, ap mid, ad bot or support bot

On low levels you almost never have a support and the laning phase ends very quickly, so it would mess the ad champ farm. I won't support at low levels and get wrecked by a crazy combination bot (low levels don't follow the meta and only have eyes to KILL KILL KILL, and forget to farm). Jungler without masteries, runes and maybe letting my mate 1x2 top? nooo. Solo top probably going 1x2? or 2x2 (so no solo top for me). No

And I want to learn how to position myself and live with a non-tanky champion, so I decided to work hard on AP mid carrier champions.

1- Should I get an expansive champ? like 6300? or a cheap and hold IP for tier 3 runes?
2- Which champion? :D And why, GOD, I don't like when someone appears and say one champion, come on, explain me why he's a good choice for low level games, for a non-pro ap mid player, etc...
3- Tell me the counter-picks to the champion you said. I want to know when not to use him, I really don't fell like being raped and feeding [:

I recommend a cheap champion to start, just to get the feel of how mid lane works.

Morgana is pretty easy, costs 1350 IP.
  • Very safe and easy.
  • High Late game impact.
  • Pretty much no counters except Talon and people with high physical damage poke :P
  • Will teach you how to support your important teammates with Black Shield.
  • Did I mention she's easy to play?
  • Aim your Q right or die.

Annie is good as well, 450 IP.
  • Forcefully teaches you to last hit.
  • Teaches you whether to use your stun or to waste it (judgements)
  • Easy as well.
  • Teaches you how to use AoEs correctly in teamfights, and how to prepare pre-fights.
  • Don't know the counters :P sorry

This are the two best to learn off the top of my head.

OH-MY-GOD

you did great xD LOL, seriously, thx... finally someone did what I would expect :D
I forgot to mention I already have Annie xD but I end getting owned by some champions...

I'll try Morgana, she's free, yaay

Do you know another champion that would be good?
Focus on farming only, and run from fights, or farm and harass, trying to kill the enemy when I can? (or dying though)
100 CS for 20 minutes, is it good, fair or bad?
Would you recommend Flash + Ignite?
Like a standard build, Rabadon's + Sorc shoes + Spell vamp + survability (rylei or roa?)
When to stack doran's ring? even with the nerf on them this choice is viable?

They made my Malzahar 4800 ip just now, if you can save and buy him, def do it. You are most lkiely to outfarm your opponents with his Malefic Visions ability. Overall hes one heck of a hero.

Save up for popular champions. This way if you ever play ranked they should own the champions you have as well.

Tier Cheap n Easy: Kayle, Morgana Mordekaiser, Veigar, Zilean (not recommnded)

Tier Medium: Brand, Cassiopeia, Fizz, Xerath, Lux, Ahri, Anivia, Swain, etc



That should keep you for mids. My recommendations include Kayle, Morgana, Kennen and Twisted Fate. Buying extremely expensive champions at such an early level isn't that good because you want a lot of champions in your arsenal to be used. Remember that IP can be used on champions and runes while RP should be better spent on expensive champions, bundles or skins.

I was going to buy Kennen without testing it, saturday, 04/14 '-' and he's now 4800, so lucky I didn't buy xD

I already have Annie and Kayle... but I don't like their gameplay that much

I have 7.5k IP '-' Okay, so many chooices, how do I choose? I can't wait everyone of them to be free and test them...

I already tried Gragas but didn't like him very much, I don't fell like Kayle would be an AP carrier and Annie would be my choice between those 3... but meeh xD And, wouldn't it be good for me (learning to ap carrier) someone with one hard CC or 1 escape ability? IDK, would it? - I think this can give you something to help me on the decision [:

Choose Ahri or Kassadin then. Ziggs wouldn't be a bad choice either

Kassadin is very very fun. but can be countered fairly easy and u kinda blow untill lvl six an u get ur ult. MOrgana is an amazing ap mid. i would say Cassiopiea though. she a great carry and if u watch anyyy pro games youll see that shes great.
Thanks to Miss Maw for the sig!

played Morgana with bots, to assure my bonus of the day xD early game she's awesome, veery strong, mid game too (late probably, but i can't say because the game didn't go that far)

But, mid game I didn't have power to nuke someone down, and her CD's are kinda high for an ap... So I snare them in the pool, and they come out before I can do something, it's like snare on the pool and back off/run until your CD's are up and hope to them come back and receive another combo to die? '-'

Kennen: i was thinking on him, a lot people told me to use it, but didn't say why I should
Cassiopeia: I like her, but the fact she don't have hard CC (ult doesn't count, it won't be often) I'm afraid of buying her...
Kassadin: I don't understand him '-'
How can people farm well if he's melee and will get harassed by the enemie? "silence the enemy, last hit and back" God, you don't have that much mana to cast 100 Q's in early game g.g
And how can he rape someone? His Q, ok, his ultimate isn't so strong as kennen/morg ult, or am I wrong? And his E won't show up often (unless in a team fight). When you fight using him you should keep damaging with your ult and hitting with your W besides casting E and Q?

Max, keep trying annie and get very used to her, always remember the 5th ability stuns, this works out very good and you can melt someone by doing this, sometimes she is banned in ranked but I havent seen much of her lately, so keep playing she is good, everyone gets melted once in a while ya kno..
