Varus basic attack is a missile. Kayle basic attack, not a missile.
Ryze Q and E is a Missle. Ryze W is not.
Anything that Exists and travels (even if its VERY short) that isnt instant.

Preety much everyone AA that is Ranged can be blocked, Turrets shots wont. If i dont list the champ, its because they have nothing to be blocked. At the end of the list, i will place the "Mystery" ones which im uncertain off. Take into account some abilities are instant, and are thus not blocked ex (Annie's W Ryze W ecs). Does not Block Champions Ex (Malphite R, Tristana W, J4 EQ, Nocturne R, Fizz Q, Gragas E, Lee's Q2)

AA mean (auto attack).

Note that missiles with extreme arcs which take them off the screen, like Kog'Maw ult or Ziggs ult are unblockable, because they travel well over the wall.
EDIT: DOES BLOCK ZIGGS ULT (GO TO MINUTE 7:00)
Thus these are abilities that are kinda weird, they are projectiles, but need just a bit of Clarification on the following

THE FOLLOWING DO GET BLOCKED
Non-Lethal projectiles: Projectiles that do not do Damage
Ex: Ashe E, Lux W, Zed's W (Stops the ability in its tracks, dosent destroy the shadow)

Projectiles with an Arc: Adding to what certainT said, what clasifies as Extreme?
Ex: Gragas R, Namis Q, Viktor's E, Varus's W, Zigg's W

"Hooking" Projectiles: Projectile that launches the champion to the target WHEN HIT
Ex: Amumu's Q, Leona's E, Natilus Q

Projectiles that travel through the Ground: Natilu's R and E
CertainT confirms these Abilities ARE blocked
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thats what i can figure out from the explanation CertainT game me. Please give your opinion and bump the Thread - Thank you CertainT for your time.


FAQs:
What essentially happens to the Missle that is Blocked?
With Few exceptions, like Zeds W, Gragas Q, Ori's Ball, Most missles are DESTROYED and completely NULLIFIED. Even if they only Clip the edge of the wall.

Can it Block Nocturne's R, Malphite R, X abilty that moves Champion?
NO. Champions arent missles. Anything that moves the champion wont get blocked, unless a skillshot is first required to land in order to reach the target (IE: Amumu Q, Leona E, Natilus Q)

Item Actives like DFG GUNBLADE?
They ARE missles, so in theory you should be able to block them giving you have ninja reaction times.

Abilities that extend out of a Champion, like Jarvan's Q or Zac's Q?
WONT GET BLOCKED, same way that Thresh's AA, despite being ranged, wont get blocked

Jesus whats the CD on this thing?
Wind Wall at a 26/24/22/20/18 cooldown. The Wall currently lasts 3.75 seconds. Wall becomes LARGER as you level it up, similar to a Karthus Wall of Pain.

Does it Block Turrets?
No. Should/will block Donger Turrets or Shaco box AA

Minions? Neutral monsters? Baron?
They are Projectiles, they should be blocked.

CertainT confirmed ranged AA and Target spells are Missles and thus can be blocked.

This list looks accurate. Everything you listed as a mystery is blocked except Syndra W.

I believe the following are also missiles, but it's late so forgive me if there is some incorrect info here:

Lee Sin E2 is a missile (it's similar to Vlad E).
Lulu Polymorph is a missile (just a fast one).
Malzahar Q is composed of 2 missiles that move toward one another.
Thresh Lantern is a missile while flying from Thresh to its landing point.

At present, we are testing the Wind Wall at a 26/24/22/20/18 cooldown. The Wall currently lasts 3.75 seconds. Also note that Yasuo has poor offensive scaling with CDR.

That sounds like it provides very little incentive to level his Wind Wall, unless the passive scales extremely well with levels.
