Sate Your Hunger by @ Lycra
Lycra's AD carry Kog'Maw guide won the Revival category of our recent guide contest for good reason! Kog'Maw has needed a good new AD carry guide and Lycra delivers everything you'd want in a great guide, from aesthetics to build info and gameplay tips.

My highlight for this guide is the Support Synergy section of the Gameplay chapter. Lycra breaks down different types of supports to help you get a sense of how to adjust your win conditions in each lane matchup. Succeeding in lane with a Leona is very different than playing with a Brand, so it's an important factor to consider when planning out your early game. Lycra's breakdown is a great starting point for any ADC player looking to optimize their laning phase.

Report Their Support for Trolling by @ Ahpulzz
If you've been around MOBAFire for years, you might recognize this Trundle support guide. It's been on vacation for a while, but Ahpulzz has brought it back for season 9 and it's as great as ever! If you've ever wanted to learn a support that's a little unorthodox but still super effective, this is a great opportunity to get a guided experience of Trundle support!

There's a lot to love in this guide, but my favorite chapter would have to be Pillar Instincts (which also has a great title!). Here, you'll learn how to master Trundle's E pillar placement to consistently proc Aftershock and get perfect blocks on your targets whether you're peeling or engaging. There's so much more to the guide than just this chapter though, so give it a full read and you're bound to learn something new.

Vladimir《9.17》: 3 Years of Vlad Experience by @ Dr Eggmund
Dr Eggmund's Vladimir guide is one I would have described as "solid," but the surprising detail of the Threats section pushes this guide beyond that description and into the "great" category. In the guide body you'll find all the nuances to building Vladimir and plenty of options to use to create a build that suits your matchup or playstyle, but the matchups are the real treasure of this guide.

Dr Eggmund includes a whopping 85 matchups with detailed tips and warnings to help you deal with Vladimir's biggest threats and stomp his easier lanes. Getting through the laning phase is crucial as Vladimir as he really needs his item spikes to take over the game. Use these matchups either to ensure you pick Vladimir at the perfect time, or if you're in a tough matchup, you'll be prepared to counterplay your opponent's strengths and still impact the game.

If you liked any of these guides, be sure to give the authors a vote and comment with your thoughts! See you again next week. :)
Thanks to Janitsu for the sig!
