Prefiguration of Champions: Fini’s drawings

Pre-oficial images of champion

When Riot Games release new champion, or updating the old one, they try to save his character at the picture, and images of champions is not an exception.

Until this art:

Oficial Ivern

Was this:

Feralpony ivern

History of superoficial arts

Senior game designer Brian Feeney, also known as FeralPony, creates these artworks, while Roit’s artists work on the official pictures. This tradition was started many years ago, in the year 2012 when they accidentally released an incomplete picture. several times. FeralPony admits: “I wanted to create something so nasty that my work will never published recklessly. So no one will be confused with the finished product.

It’s a tradition now. Thanks to the undeniable talent of FeralPony, we have a temporary replacement to official pictures that Riot use during testing. Feralpony says, “I’m trying to give time to each picture so that it’s funny and consistent with the spirit of the character.” Goodbye, boring grey squares – long live the new beautiful faces in the Summoner’s Rift!

In the first years Feralpony painted temporary pictures far from always, and many champions never felt the wizard’s brush.

Everything changed one fatal day when FeralPony tried to draw in his brand new champion League of Legends, Talia. He recalls, “I had no way of getting her spirit, I didn’t have inspiration.”

Talia’s little problem

Feralpony Talia

The Champions Dev team has been experiencing the difficulty of implementing Talia in the game: the witch was too much reminiscent of other champions. The Fini’s failure only underlined this and became a sort of “loyalty test” for developers. To make Talia more unique, they made several changes to her model. When FeralPony regained a digital brush, he easily painted this witch. This attempt to prevent the release of unfinished pictures has become a test of champions to the uniqueness of the appearance and nature of which the persona can be easily portrayed.

Today’s creativity Feralpony became an integral part of the champions dev part of the team.

King is dead, Long live the king

Recently FeralPony said that he think to end with these picturies, and his place can be taken with some dude. To the Dude’s role he choose senior analitic – Kory Dirborn, also known as Ququroon, which have a master’s permission to draw these masterpieces.

Ququroon said that he will continue this awesome tradition with a great pleasure.

And now just take a look at this SUPEROFICIAL image collection:

To a middle stage of the game you inventory should look like this:

  • Boots of Swiftness
  • Skirmisher’s Sabre – Bloodrazor
  • Titanic Hydra

All you need next – increasing survability of your champion, so first artifact that i recommend is Dead Man’s Plate, because that artifact perfectly fit into Shyvana’s build.

Kha’Zix:

Main ability of Kha’Zix contains in his fast attacks. if you meet that champion in bushes, then you will be surprised how quickly he can kill you. Use Wards, to predict where he can be at any moment of time.

Trundle:

Fight of Trundle and Shyvana are oftens, and advantage is on the Trundle’s side. His attack is higher and he created to kill lonely targets.


Tips about Shyvana:

Shyvana LoL

Early stage of the game – just play as all junglers, farm creeps run on lines to help and other “junglers” things

Mid stage of the game – you just can not catch and kill Shyvana, she got defensive artifacts in her pocket and under Burnout she is fast as Sonic the Hedgehog. If you think that somewhere wll be a teamfight, then immediately go there!

At the late stage of the game your role will be still the same. Stay a team player, that always stay in the eye of the storm. Always seek for a mistakes that enemies may do, and if you find one, then rush into the formation and bring chaos in their lives. Look that Dragon and Baron were both always warded.

Skills of Shyvana are simply enough. You just need a little time to aim properly. But to master this champion you need a ton of games on her. Only practice can bring you to the top on the Shyvana. If you think that Shyvana is a simple and boring champion that can not do anything, then you are terribly wrong. Shyvana is a pick of the experienced players on major tournaments very often, and that can not be a mistake.

Basic tips for Talon

Early game as Talon

Do not try to kill enemy champion in the early game. Just stand on your line and kill minions. Use your Rake to make this task easier. If you use your blades for a farm, then try to take that position, that your skill will hit an enemy aswell.

If you are challenged by a skillfull opponent, then try to kill as many minions as you can, especially big minions with guns. Do not risk your life too much, if you can not reach range minions, then let them be.

Your main challenge – farm enough gold to buy core items, then you can roam and gank enemy champions.  You can effectively stay on line if you will use Rake, but remember that this skill consumes a lot of mana, and you have a bad mana regeneration. Try to ask your jungler for blue buff, this will make easier your early game. Or if he can not share his buff with you, then try to ask for help. All you need – kill you opponent 1 or 2 times.

Middle game as Talon

This is ideal stage of the game for Talon. If you have your core artifacts, then your task – roam and gank all enemy champions. You can gank lines very effectively. Talon have ability to rush to enemy, slow him down, and very powerfull ultimate that deal great damage to all enemies in wide radius. Play aggressively and your enemies will die one after another.

Try to convince your team to kill Dragon when you perform a gank, then your team will take a huge advantage. And even if enemies will come to fight for Dragon, then just kill them all. Talon abilities are perfect when enemies group up.

Late game as Talon

In Late game Talon do not lose his actuality. But remember that is became hard to survive in team fightes. Enemy team already have plenty of good artifact on damage, and on other hand, you do not have any protective artifacts. So you must mastered your skills, to survive only by them. You need good reaction, and quickly react on various problems. One mistake, like unlucky jump and Talon watch the game as spectator.

Every time look what items opposite team buy, if you see some wards then it will be risk to use your ultimate, because enemies will kill you in a second.

In whole Late stage of games is not much different from Middle stage. It is not so fun, but your actions still same, find weak point and then crush them.

Recap

I can not say that Talon is a simple champion. Firstly you need to master AD champion on middle line, secondly you must know how to farm well, and thirdly – you must have a good reaction rate, and you need to take right actions. You can not die as Talon, because you either play well and kill enemies fastly, or from the very beginning of the game you will be just a ballast for your team because enemies will kill you as soon as possible. So if you want to master this hero, then try him over and over, and your first games i recommend to play with AI, to knew all basics about this Champion.

Masteries: Unasked questions

 

After clarifying what masteries are and understanding the great importance they have for your champion, there comes the next question: how many mastery pages should I build? Are there 2 pages, one for AD, one for AP, enough to fulfill my needs?

Best Masteries

League of Legends

I would say no and I propose 9 pages of masteries classified by the type of champion you’re playing and its role in the game. Of course, this number is not the standard. After you get more advanced in the game, you might make your own masteries pages depending on what role you play in the team and on what your champion’s needs. This being said, the 9 pages you’ll need are the following: Standard Marksman Page; two pages for mid lane – AP burst caster, AD Assassins; support masteries – AP supports, Ranged Utility Supports, Tanky Support Masteries; Jungler Masteries – AD jungler and AP jungler; Top Lane Masteries – tank top laners.

Marksman’s Choice

Marksman masteries

For the standard page for marksman, we’re definitely starting with the Ferocity (offensive) tree first as the main job of an AD carry is to kill as many crits as possible. So, the 30 points would go to, on one hand, Ferocity18 points and, on the other hand, Cunning 12 points as it goes: 5 points in Sorcery, 1 point in Feast, 5 points in Vampirism, 1 point in Bounty Hunter, 5 points in Battering Blows and 1 point in Fervor of Battle. The 12 points in Cunning should be allocated in the following manner: 5 points in Savagery, 1 point in Secret Stash, 5 points in Merciless and 1 point in Dangerous Game. The only exception to this build-up is Graves, who, as a result of its strong synergy with the item Death’s Dance, almost always should get Warlord’s Bloodlust.

Mid Masteries

Mid masteries

If you choose to go mid lane, then you would need to choose between AP burst caster or AD Assassins. You should know that the mastery Thunderlord’s Decree is still in the top preferences among the burst casters and assassins, but some sustained damage dealers are choosing Deathfire Touch for the increased damage it assures over time. Mastery Planner for AP is made out of 12 points in Ferocity and 18 in Cunning. The points repartition in Ferocity: 5 points in Sorcery, 1 point in Feast, 5 points in Natural Talent and 1 point in Bounty Hunter. For Cunning: 5 points in Savagery, 1 point in Secret Stash, 5 points in Merciless, 1 point in Dangerous Game, 5 points in Precision and 1 point in Thunderlord’s Decree.

Something to pay attention to – for AD mid laners such as Zed or Talon, the mastery page is very similar, except that it is more useful to swap the Secret Stash with the Assassin mastery. So, if your mid champion is an AD Assassin then masteries should look like this: 5 points Sorcery, 1 point Feast, 5 points Vampirism and 1 point Bounty Hunter in Ferocity. For Cunning there goes: 5 points Savagery, 1 point Assassin, 5 points Merciless, 1 points Dangerous Game, 5 points Precision.

As the name suggests it, Runic Armor offers you shield, healing, regeneration and lifesteal in order to make you stronger. So, in the Resolve Tree it gives you an excellent boost on heal. Veteran’s Scars increases your Health with a maximum of 50 units.


The next step is choosing between Insight and Perseverance. Insight reduces the cooldown of Summoner Spells by 15%, while Perseverance offers +50% Base Health Regen, increased to +200% when your champion is below 25% Health.


On Tier 5, Swiftness increases Tenacity and Slow Resist, Legendary Guardian helps the team as it offers Armor and Magic Resist for each nearby enemy champion.

The last Tier consists of three masteries: Grasp of the Undying, Strength of the Ages and Bond of Stone. Grasp of the Undying – every 4 seconds in combat, your next attack against an enemy champion deals damage equal to 3% of your max Health and heals you for 1.5% of your max Health (halved for ranged champions), deals magic damage. Strength of the Ages – you permanently gain Health (300 maximum) for you or allies killing certain nearby units: siege minions: +20 Health, large monsters: +10 Health. At the max bonus, these kills instead restore 6% of your Maximum Health. Bond of Stone – +4% Damage Reduction. 6% of the damage from enemy champions taken by the nearest allied champion is dealt to you instead. Damage is not redirected if you are below 5% of your maximum health.

Recap

LoL Masteries

The mastery choice in the case of tanky supports is “Grasp of the Undying” vs “Bond of Stone”. Grasp of the Undying deals more damage, but Bond of Stone helps reduce damage all around. It is important to mention that tank support players tend to allocate 5 points for Recovery, 1 point for Tough Skin, 5 points for Veteran’s Scars, 1 point for Insight, 5 points for Legendary Guardian and 1 point for Bond of Stone. For tank junglers, a good pick would be the Strength of the Ages keystone mastery since Grasp of the Undying isn’t worth it anymore, after the nerfs. It provides decent scaling and it suits the majority of champions that are there for the utility and already have a decent amount of sustain.

Masteries: Cunning

 

Cunning Mastery Tree

Cunning

Cunning Mastery Tree is the successor of the utility mastery tree from previous seasons. However, in the current season, Cunning Mastery Tree works as an alternative offensive mastery tree. It grants supplementary effects, such as increased buff duration or bonus movement speed after dealing a burst of damage. On the other hand, the Resolve Mastery Tree replaces the defensive mastery tree of previous seasons and it better suits champions that build defensive items. If you play as a marksman, you might choose Cunning over Resolve as it gives more immediate benefits.

Tier 1

On Tier 1, the Cunning masteries between you can make your choice are Wanderer and Savagery. While Wanderer increases your Movement Speed out of combat with a percentage of +0.6%, Savagery offers 1 bonus damage to minions and monsters for single target attacks and spells. For most proactive players, Wanderer would be the best choice, but it is very important to mention that it only works when you are out of combat and it isn’t very useful until your creep score is perfect.

Tier 2

On Tier 2, there are Runic Affinity, Secret Stash and Assassin. Runic Affinity makes buffs from neutral monsters last 15% longer. Secret Stash makes potions and elixirs last 10% longer, also Health Potions are replaced with Biscuits that restore 15 Health and Mana instantly on use. Last but not least, choosing Assassin makes you deal 2% increased damage to champions when no allied champions are nearby. Assassin is not necessarily the best choice for marksmen as usually they are not alone.

LoL Masteries 6 season

Next tier consists of Merciless which deals 1% increased damage to champions below 40% Health and Meditation that regenerates 0.3% of your missing Mana every 5 seconds.

On the following Tier, you can add 1 point in either Bandit to gain 1 gold for each nearby minion killed by an ally, either Dangerous Game which offers a restore of 5% of your missing Health and Mana for every champion kill and assist. The gold from Bandit is considered slow and useful only for supports.

Precision and Intelligence are the masteries on the 5th Tier. Precision offers Magic Penetration and Armor Penetration, while adding the points to Intelligence, your Cooldown Reduction cap is increased to 41% and you gain 1% Cooldown Reduction.

League of Legends

After investing a maximum of 17 points in Cunning, the last point can be added to one of the following: Stormraider’s Surge, Thunderlord’s Decree or Windspeaker’s Blessing. Stormraider’s Surge grants you 40% Movement Speed and 75% Slow Resistance for 3 seconds with 10 seconds cooldown if you deal 30% of a champion’s max Health within 2.5 seconds. When it comes to Thunderlord’s Decree, your 3rd attack or damaging spell against the same enemy champion calls down a lightning strike, dealing magic damage in the area. The last one, Windspeaker’s Blessing, makes your heals and shields 10% stronger. Additionally, your shields and heals on other allies increase their armor by 5-22 (based on level) and their magic resistance by half that amount for 3 seconds.

Masteries: Ferocity

How to build masteries – beginner’s guide

Mastery season 6

Let’s start by clarifying what the masteries are and why it is important that you use the correct ones in your matches. Firstly, pay attention to the season! Every new season has got new masteries. The current League of Legend Season is 6, so this guide is made according to the actual version.

As a summoner, you can focus your magical training into three specific categories which are widely known are masteries. When you gain levels of power, you have the possibility to choose where to invest them. The three categories you can develop are: Ferocity (grants clean-cut offensive boost), Cunning (grants supplementary effects, such as increased buff duration or bonus movement speed after dealing a burst of damage) and Resolve (increases defense). Each of them has a maximum number of points you can allocate. From the total number of 30 points, you can spend up to 18 points in any of these categories.

League of Legends

How to allocate the points? It depends very much on the champion you’re playing and its role. Read very carefully what every mastery offers you and choose the one that suits you best. Don’t forget! You can build up to 20 pages of masteries and select the proper one before every match. A category has around 13-14 masteries placed in rows. On each row you can invest either a maximum of 5 points, either a maximum of 1 point. The rows are unlocked only by allocating the points in the rows above.

Ferocity

 

On the first row, Ferocity is made up by masteries like: Fury – it offers you Attack Speed and it’s the best choice for Marksmen. The next one, Sorcery, gives you increased Damage from Abilities. After investing a maximum of 5 points in each of them (of both), the next row is unlocked.

From the next row, you can only choose one mastery between Double Edge Sword (deals an additional 3% damage, but receive an additional 1,5% damage), Feast (killing a unit restores 20 Health) and Expose Weakness (damaging enemy champions causes them to take 3% increase damage from you allies).

The next two are Vampirism and Natural Talent. Vampirism increases Life Steal and Spell Vamp, while Natural Talent offers increased Attack Damage and Ability Power. In late game, Vampirism offers more survivability, so it might be a better choice for marksmen.

League of Legends

On the following row, you can choose either Bounty Hunter – you deal 1% increased damage for each unique enemy champion you kill, either Oppressor – you deal 2.5% increased damage to targets with impaired movement (slows, stuns, taunts, etc.). For a champion like Ashe, Oppressor would be more useful during early to mid-game, but its uses are still limited.

After investing 1 point in one of the above, the next masteries are Battering Blows which offers Armor Penetration and Piercing Thoughts which offers Magic Penetration.

Last but not least, one single point can be added to either Warlord’s Bloodlust – gain increasingly more Lifesteal based on your missing health against champions (up to 20%). This lifesteal is 50% as effective against minions (25% for ranged champions), either Fervor of Battle – you generate stacks of Fervor by hitting enemy champions with attacks and abilities, or Deathfire Touch – your damaging abilities cause enemy champions to take magic damage equal to 8 + 60% of your Bonus Attack Damage and 25% of your Ability Power over 4 seconds.

Everything you want to know about Gold

Basics about gold earning

How to make Money in LoL

Gold can be earned in several ways. The core is lasthitting enemy minions and monsters in the woods. Solid reward given to you if you kill the enemy hero, in addition you will receive smaller bonus if you helped to score a kill. Some characters have the ability to increase income. There are talents, runes, summoner spells and items that generate a small amount if gold. Finally, each character gets one coin per second. As an emergency measure can be recommended to sell unnecessary items to replace it with more appropriate.

Gold from minions

LoL Gold

To receive an reward for a minion, it is necessary to finish him. The number of attacks does not matter, because the money is given only to the one who struck the last blow. The amount of gold depends on the type of minion (ranged minions minions are worth less than melee, and those worth less than siege minion), and the length of the match. The longer the game, the greater the reward for minions.

Gold from monsters

If a monster live long enough then reward for his head grows to a certain threshold. In addition, the most powerful monsters give gold to the whole team at once, regardless of who struck the decisive blow.

Gold from heroes

The reward for killing the hero depends on how many murders he had committed since the last death. The more a series of murders, the more reward for his head. If he, on the contrary, was killed too often, then award will be reduced. Deal a finishing blow to the enemy and you will get full reward.

Gold with skills

These skills have a direct impact on the style of play . Example – Gangplank, bringing additional income, if he kill someone. Passive skill of Katarina increases her reward for the killing and assistance to 25 coins.

Passive income

This category include all income that not derived from taking action. Each character gets the coin in the second after the first minions will appear. Such income can be provided by runes, talents, or specific objects such as Philosopher’s Stone.

Resale

League of Legends

Items are resold for 70% of the purchase price, and items, that passively increasing income – 50% of the purchase price. This is not always effective, but sometimes it is justified.
