Calling out all ADC's! With so many guides on how to AD carry, they always have something about kiting. But how do you kite?
Anyone got tips and tricks how to orb-walk for better positioning, and the best way to kite with different champions?

Hey there ! I read your thread and got actually interested in orb walking (Actually I discovered what it is, yeah I'm a noob D:)

So I felt free to ask google, as usual. I guess you already found these links but it might help some people !

First of all some people are considering there's no "orb walking" in League of Legends, and they're saying it's just repositionning after each autoattack to either chase, back or get in position for a spell etc...

I found this link there :
I think it explains the basics about "orb walking", and it learnt me few things !

Hope I helped you somehow !
Have a nice day

Kiting is when you attack someone and then move away to keep your distance. Usually, this requires CC such as slows. For example, Ashe can kite an Udyr by staying at max range and autoattacking him with Frost Shot activated, then moving away, then autoattacking again, and moving, and just rinse and repeat.

Caitlyn can kite by autoattacking and moving just like normal because of her long range. The rest of the ADCs are pretty much the same way, although some are use their spells situationally.

Ashe: Frost Shot + Volley
Caitlyn: Yordle Snap Trap + 90 Caliber Net
Corki: Valkyrie + Missile Barrage (Long range poke counts during kiting)
Draven: Blood Rush + Stand Aside
Ezreal: Arcane Shift + Mystic Shot
Graves: Quickdraw + Smoke Screen
Kog'Maw: Bio-Arcane Barrage + Void Ooze + Living Artillery (Long range poke)
Miss Fortune: Strut + Make it Rain
Sivir: Fleet of Foot + Boomerang Blade + On The Hunt + Ricochet
Tristana: Draw a Bead + Rocket Jump + Buster Shot
Twitch: Ambush + Venom Cask
Urgot: Noxian Corrosive Charge + Acid Hunter + Terror Capacitor
Varus: Hail of Arrows + Chain of Corruption
Vayne: Final Hour + Tumble + Condemn

That somebody actually had to come up with a name and turn it into a nice flavor for all those kids who "decided to go pro" ...

Like tebowing for a photo that gets taken anyway.
