Starting either Rejuventation Bead
or Faerie Charm
means you will be building a Philo Stone into Shurelya's Reverie. This is a fine starting build.
Starting with both Faerie Charm and Rejuvenation Bead
leaves you with no potions and only two wards. Only use this if you are sure that you won't get harassed down, as you lack in sustain.
Grab either of these items early. Sightstone
is a must, while Philo Stone
and Kage's Luck Pick
are the best for most situations, but Ninja Tabi
and Mercury Treads
are options if the enemy has too much damage.
For enchantments, you'll most likely go with Alacrity
. Distortion is better if the enemy seems to be focusing you and you need the extra Flash cooldown. Otherwise, extra movement speed is just useful.
and Ruby Sightstone
are extremely valuable items. Both these items allows you to forget about buying wards, saving more a ton of gold. Getting these items as early as possible will give you the greatest return on the investment, plus the HP is awesome.
Locket of the Iron Solari
has everything you need as a support. HP, CDR, Armor AND an active shield, Locket is a solid item for any match-up. This is by far my favorite item to pick up on a support.
is an excellent item since it builds from a
and provides additional mana, which helps with Nami's extremely high mana costs. The Cleanse and Heal for an ally is also invaluable, but is rather expensive. I pretty much would always get one after an initial
, or at least grab the
Shard of True Ice
is an okay item. Keeping the gold per 10 is cool, but the utility of the item is a bit lacking. Compared to Mikael's the mana regen is not nearly as attractive and the AoE slow isn't amazing for Nami's kit, which has a ton of slows anyways.
works well with Nami. The huge range on the wraith scouts, combined with the huge range on Nami's ultimate simply makes sense. Even though it can be hard to land the ultimate in an open field, the slow from Twin Shadows will force the target to at least use an escape. However, with how prevalent wards are in the current game, the vision from Twin Shadows is a bit wasted and is not as attractive as it could have been in Season 2.
is a strong aura item, but is rather expensive. Zeke's is still awesome when the team consists of multiple AD champions, but it is definitely difficult to rush. I would aim for this item third or fourth after some of the other items.
is still great on a number of supports and it works especially well with Nami for following up on her ultimate. Reverie and
make for powerful engages, but I probably wouldn't take it unless I need that chasing power. With Philo Stone no longer being an absolute must and the existence of a lot more options, Reverie won't be seen nearly as much.
Aegis of the Legion
can be bought pretty much every game. The Armor and MR aura is still amazing and there should be one on every single team.
is the upgrade for
, but is really only useful when going against a lot of magic damage. The upgrade is extremely costly, so make sure that the extra MR will be useful before purchasing it, simply having an Aegis is sufficient in many cases.
