Need to Understand ward placement, Quickly?
3 Attachment(s)
CAUTION: This guide is currently outdated into the transition to season 4. Some placement may no longer be optimum or relevant. (riot reset images, so many have reset as well).

What are wards?
They are items on the shop, under "consumables". They give sight in a range as stated in their description.

What is warding?
Warding is a tactic that allows you to see areas to protect yourself, spy on other players, and other aspects of constant sight over an area.

Wards are cheap, and can really help you win games if you place them properly. They boost confidence and can save lives. Some champs can even interact with them to allow them to completely escape a bad situation.

Some of the best places to ward
Attachment 534987
Quick warding guide:
Blue - Generally good places to put wards for coverage, will rarely get questioned
Yellow - Wards for jungling, counter-jungling, or to protect lanes specifically from junglers
Red - More advanced coverage, usually for mid-late game when mobility gets higher, and plays become crucial. Can be defensive or offensive.
Pink - Counter-warding
Black - Late-end game offensive wards to help keep a win and invade on base for champs with flashes, Blitz, Nidalee, and other long range skill shots.

Anywhere where you have destroyed a turret - placing a ward here may give you an advantage. Especially, if you have 2 or more teleports on a team.

I hope this helps any new players, as it can save a headache or two and allow you to win a game.
Good Luck.

If you feel this helped you, just bump it so other new players can be educated.

Well done

I play support a lot and I know where to ward, but this helped me learn when to ward the spots instead of just the spots to ward.

Thank to you.

Anyone who plays support needs to read this, actually everyone does haha.

Guess I'll bump.

The title of your post made me think it was someone that had a question about ward placement, but this is definitely a nice surprise. Free Bump :) :)

Great man nice layout but in short put them at major gank areas like bot and mid, and use vision when they have teemo.
