League of Legends (LoL) Question: Champions for last-hitting practice?

    Champions for last-hitting practice?

    Since I'm now so terribly used to playing my main roles which are Jungle and Support, I figured it may be time to start some long-overdue last-hitting practice in case it can help me if I ever decide to play top or adc in the future. So I'm going to try the classic method, no runes, no items, no abilities, just waiting for the perfect time to last-hit a minion in practice tool for about 20 mins. Now, I'm not sure which champion is ideal for this. I was going to pick Aatrox since he was (kinda still is) one of my favourite solo champions but his passive will be an unwanted help. The only other top laner I'm comfortable with is Nasus but that's an obvious no.

    So yeah, if you folks can tell me one champion that is ideal for a complete bare-bones last-hitting practice, I'd appreciate it. Which one do you recommend?

    Personally I'd pick a champion you're actually likely to play. You'll get used to their base damage and basic attack animations. I'd also run the normal runes and starting items you'd use in game to keep things consistent.

    If you want a challenge, probably pick a mage with low base AD like Zilean or Anivia. Vladimir and Swain also work since they can't farm everything with spells until much later in the game.

    If you'd rather focus on a top laner (other than Vlad/Swain), just play Aatrox or whatever other top lane champions you're likely to play.

    For ADC, I'd also pick a champion you're likely to play. Miss Fortune and Draven have easy last-hitting, so if you want more of a challenge, probably go for someone like Kog'Maw, Jhin or Vayne.

    You're probably right, it's just that I'm aiming to practice without any help at all, which is why I'd like to avoid using runes or items, anything that can make last-hitting easier. My goal is to get adjusted to last-hitting with basic attacks so that I can build some sense that can be used for all champions. In that sense, maybe I'll pick a mage as you said to take advantage of their low AD.

    The problem is that sometimes I feel like trying out a champion I haven't played in a long time and when this champion is a top laner, it can be difficult to just "pick up and play" since top lane seems to be a pretty grueling lane to play for someone with no experience.

    I'll need to think about this a bit more but, even though you're right that I should use a build that I'm likely going to utilize in-game, I want to make this as hard as possible to build my sense around that.

    Start with Annie, practice with her Q. It's quite easy but do it. Aim having at least 100 cs at 10 minutes. Keep doing it until it happens in 100% of your attempts. Don't practice too hard, practice for an hour daily, it's enough as you can start over 6 times and that's completely enough. When you perfect it, start doing it with your main. Annie has prepared you and taught you the basics, use everything you've learned on your main - with the same daily routine. When you perfect it even with your main, your ready to play on Ranked and lose your nerves 'cuz of Teemo's Q which will make you miss 2 minions in each wave, or any other strong-poking champion. Cheers!

    probably you should learn last hitting with the champions you main, to learn they speed, damage and animations until it became intuitive when you can last hit, but many coachers uses Annie as example for training to farm and so on.

    Therein lies the problem, I don't have a main since I don't play lanes usually, except support and the odd ADC which I avoid usually because as a support main I get particularly irritated when my supports play passive and let the enemy bot harass me freely.

    The reason I want to improve my last hitting is because whenever I play solo lanes I have a tendency to lose a lot of cs and fall behind steadily so my aim is to get better in the game in general. Maybe I'll use Annie as you said.
