I was curious about other people's opinions about ghost vs flash. I find that ghost works well on supports, but I was hoping to know what other scenarios people like using ghost.

I use ghost on slower champs and melee champs like Naut or Garen

Flash i use on ranged carry's like swain, lulu or varus

For me it's mostly that, but exceptions: even if a champ is fast, if they have a dash- or blink-type move already then I'll give them Ghost, too. Also, even if a show champ has some sort of short-range skill combo (like Taric), then Flash is automatic.

Ghost for more chase-based champions. Flash for repositioning, initiation, hard escape, or gap closer.

IMO Flash is superior in MOST situations, simply for the fact that you can cross terrain with it. Mordekaiser, Olaf, and a few others generally benefit more from Ghost, but most junglers, most AD carrys, and most AP carries get more benefit from flash.

I tend to use Ghost over Flash on only 1 champion: Shen.
flash is great for shen too, but Ghost gives him the "sticking power" in team fights to go where he needs to go. Flash just doesn't cover enough distance.

As for the mechanics of Ghost vs Flash...
Flash: short distance re positioning (can go through walls)
Ghost: long distance chasing/escaping

most champions want flash because it's instant because playing range-games is important. Being able to instantly close the gap gives your opponent minimal time to respond.

Ghost is great for Olaf because of his ulti. You can run away from anything.

I love flash and ghost on Teemo for different reasons. Combined with Teemo's w, ghost makes for an insane escape mechanism. However, flash lets you do some pretty interesting things, like flash over forest to assassinate or escape. Both have their uses depending on the team you are facing!

Did you just say lulu was a carry?
