: well if you pattern your engage to be the same every time you deserve to either die or have it fail, pretty simple. and she can get out, once you play her a little bit you know that you have the opportunity to disengage, save your engage if you have someone with a skillshot cc to e dodge then go in, or e dodge then get out. Its not all in all the time. Everythings situational.
I agree a lot of champs have predictable patterns. That alistar isn't gonna surprise me when I see him coming not blitz nor naut. With every support you have tradeoffs that you decide if they're acceptable. Some only offer kill potential and a body to block shots others have healing and buffs/debuffs to help keep the lane stable or turn a fight. Camille has things to help her support like: a strong slow, a stun+gap closer(that doubles as an escape that other supports lack), good damage and tankiness for fighting, and low mana cost allowing her to stay active. You can argue that others could do some of that too but not like she does. It's like when people argued why play Sona when there is nami or blitz when there is thresh or talon when there is zed. They're different and have something that the other doesn't. Also her ult with mf is a fun wombo.
: 1. People take shit out of proportion 2. Sona has a history of being mishandled 3. Sona mains are really vocal about their waifu As someone who has played mained Sona since her release in S1, i'll say she is pretty bonkers right now and needs some nerfs, I'll only be vocal about Sona if it's something totally unjustified
I agree she is to strong and it's what I knew was coming. I love these changes but she is to much right now and it seems they plan on hitting her W a bit which I think is the biggest problem atm. Since season 3 when I started she has been my favorite champ and I hope they leave her in a good spot when all is said and done.

who do you think synergies the best with her in lane?
: I'm surprised no one has mentioned the changes to Ghost in this patch. As a Singed main, this buff to ghost seems ridiculous....in a good way. But if it's good for me, I know it's probably not so good for my opponents. I guess I'm just wondering, why you all seem so confident to give it such a strong buff? Also, what would constitute Ghost becoming overpowered? Because since its primary competition as a summoner spell is against flash, unless more people started to run ghost over flash at some point (which I could never see happening), couldn't it be argued that ghost can't become overpowered until it reaches that point? Or I guess people start running ghost flash I suppose.
its to compensate the removal of the boot upgrade that did the same. since it never was a problem before they feel its necessary to keep it as a good option for those who do use it.

: Sona Tips/Advice?
If your in a lane you can't reliably poke safely or just want a more passive lane get coin instead of spellthief. You'll lose out on damage but you'll still get a lot of gold and have sustain outside of your heal to save on mana. You should upgrade to talisman because the speed boost is very useful on top of your e to engage and disengage. Speed can help make up for your squishy nature since you can generally keep away from the less mobile champs and dart in and out of danger to power cord. Generally I build talisman, mobi boots, sightstone, and lichbane as my core with Lichbane being bought after the others are finished and the other two slots are situational though the new Athenes is great on her and either of the items from aegis are great against a heavy ap team. Windspeakers is a must since it affects your shields and your heal which in the long run is better than thunderlords limited use in comparison. Ap is great on her as everything scales with it but don't prioritize it over getting your support items unless your mid in which case stack it and if your adventurous get rapidfire cannon for those long ranged q chord combos. Remember her numbers may not be the best but they can affect the whole team giving them a lot of value and don't underestimate the value of speed on her. And don't forget you cannot clear a wave get someone else to do it and that your q range is usually bigger than you think.

how does taliyah feel about demacia and yordles?
: @ZenonTheStoic: Congratulations on Taliyah
: Lich Bane is kinda shitty on her (because it's rather impractical to get LB when her main focus is more healing-oriented PLUS all that squishyness), but otherwise, not an at all bad point. As long as she has no "spammable CC", she will always be reliant on having to stack AP. Though we all know getting AP on a support is a complete luxury...

: I love sona but her heal is trash. Late game support Sona's will have maybe 100 AP at most, so they're going to have like.. a heal of 150 to herself and an ally? Not counting the % HP bonus of course but even then it'll probably be 200 HP at most. Meanwhile soraka just goes "Oh hey bro, here have ALL YOUR HP BACK". Nami heals for more AND does damage in the same move AND can even heal another(Or damage another).

: It means sod all because it was put there without any rhyme or reason other than the two could possibly have a connection. There's no lore about it that's been released so don't postulate that there's a connection just yet, no matter how obvious it may seem. Wait on official Riot sources for that.
It's fun to discuss what comes next otherwise it's just waiting for the next bit of content and that can be dull

Mixing in a rapid fire cannon will help with your wave clear and keeps you at a good distance when you burst

I think it'd be cool if he could have a unique item that he can upgrade like victor into three options that promote different styles like tank, ap, or hybrid
: We still don't know how Garen, Vi, and Sona are related to Jhin.
In the Q&A they confirmed that these are targets he wants to go for but can't for know so those are just his ideas for their "performance".
