Support player.
I've been playing LoL for a little under a week now I believe. Before that I was a very casual player of DOTA games on Battle.net.

I really enjoy playing supporters as supporters,
Now if only I could do it correctly without getting killed so often. :P
At the moment Janna is my favorite support character. Currently trying to get Taric, or wait for him to get shuffled into the free roster so I can try him out.

As a side-note, Warwick, Master Yi, and Fiddlesticks are currently my most hated/feared characters. I expect that will change on a regular basis.

Soraka is the best support character along with Janna. Taric is good, but he's just not the same ever since they made it so his ult cant heal anymore. And thanks for being one of the few sefless people who wanna help win by actually helping others on the team!

Taric is a really fun champion but I always find playing him as a tank is a bit better then support. Your heal does not do that much and support wise there are better champions and now that his ult no longer heals he is not near as good as he used to be...not to say he is bad but playing him support is just not the same.

I am a huge fan of Janna myself but I find building her to be dps is the way to go. You will still be the supporting champion but you will also be doing a decent amount of dmg while supporting...but as with any champion there are many ways to play.

If you really enjoy being a supporting champion I suggest Soraka (the only pure support champion) as she is a great champion that has a huge presence in games. Or Zilean because he can do some damage without ruining or interrupting supporting your team and his ult makes it so if its on an ally while they die they are brought back.

Edit: I'm with Helidead09 on thanking you for being a person that enjoys helping the team. I sometimes feel i'm one of the only people that play pure support classes in this game. Every time I see a support class they are trying to be a dps but fail at even that. So its nice to know there are others that enjoy support classes...on that note we really need another pure support champion.

Taric is really underrated he is the only support with a stun. His heal was buffed a little. Not to mention he still has his armour aura.

Janna's one of my favorites. Usually get a Meki pendant, regular boots, and rush Aegis.
