Level 28!

Almost there. It’s so close I can taste it, that level 30. And soon I’ll have my first two rune pages filled as well. Then I can start buying champions again and unlocking more rune pages.

Enough about my progress. Let’s have a look at what’s Riot is doing. In the upcoming patch they are nerfing some defense runes and buffing the offensive runes. I build my AP and AD rune page with offense in mind. So I can finish building them this way and they’ll be even more effective. But it made me wonder if an offensive rune page and defensive masteries would give a better result instead of the other way around. I don’t have enough IP yet to test it, but I will when I have.

My main is still Sona and I’m getting more compliments every time. I’m getting better at playing support. Ward all over the place, save my team mates when needed, harass the enemy in lane phase. It might be a boring role, but it’s a necessary one. And AD carry without a good support can’t carry. I would like to learn to play different support characters as well. That’s why I’m looking forward to the Kayle buff and Karma remake.  The Karma remake is planned. Karma’s designer said she’s getting more CC.

I hope this will make her more viable as a support. He never said anything about when this remake will be released. In the mean time I’ll be looking forward to Varus. I saw something last night and he looks awesome. His range is insane and his skills look fun.

League of Legends – Caitlyn

Caitlyn, The Sheriff of Piltover

Ever since I started playing League of Legends, I played ranged AD carry champions. The one I normally play is Sivir (she’s cheap and I knew I’d like her). But Caitlyn was free a few weeks ago and I tried her once before that. The only thing I can say is that I love to play her.

Her damage is better, her range is better, her poke is better (compared to Sivir). It’s not surprising since Caitlyn is a tier 1 champion and Sivir a tier 4. Like with every other champion, I needed some time to get used to her, especially her skills. Using her Yordle Snap Traps and 90 Caliber Net takes skill before you can use them effectively. Also the combination of using the trap’s stun, the net and her ult, Ace in the Hole, is awesome, but needs good timing and placement of the trap. The ‘downside’ to the trap is that it’s visible to everyone. A skilled enemy will not walk into it. This knowledge can be used to your advantage by placing traps in key places. Another nice thing to do is place them in the bushes where they cannot be seen until the enemy steps in it.

I’m still looking for the perfect build for Caitlyn as I’m not sure if AD or AP would make her the best possible or which build goes well with a type of play style. I’ve noticed that some champions fit my play style very well with any kind of build (just too bad they’re all low tiers), but it’s different for Caitlyn. I’ve checked Leaguecraft.com for builds but didn’t find a comparative guide. If you’re a LoL player and have experience with Caitlyn, please leave your suggestion below in the comments 🙂 Thank you

I wrote this article for the map Summoner’s Rift and not Dominion. I have purchased her with hard earned IP, but haven’t had the time and right condition to play her in Dominion. But I’m sure her ult is good to knock back enemies who are trying to cap the tower.
