How do I improve? I'm level 16 and I don't want to keep leveling up knowing that I'm screwing up one of the vital aspects of LoL, creep farming. Any tips?

Detailed tips will help.

I'm not too sure, as I've only started a while ago myself, but you should be last hitting. It doesn't matter how much damage you do to the minion, as long as you are the one to deal the finishing blow on the minion. This'll also benefit you by giving you more gold.

What champion are you playing? I could imagine 13 cs in 10 minutes as melee in a duo lane, but these generally aren't matchups that are condusive to farming effectively. If you are playing a ranged champion your best bet is to practice your timing more - move around a lot so you don't autoattack, when you see the minion low go for the last hit. It gets significantly easier if you have offense masteries and a Doran's Blade (but you really only want to start Doran's in a duo with a support champion...). Perhaps consider practicing in a custom game against a single easy bot. Probably the easiest autoattack animation is Caitlyn, though Ashe and Corki are also pretty easy. If you want to learn on a caster, Annie's Q is exceptionally useful for last hitting.

Also, one thing that is useful to learn is how to last hit at a tower. Melee creeps usually take 2 tower hits -> autoattack and you'll get the last hit, ranged creeps you autoattack -> tower hit -> autoattack to get the last hit.

Honestly, farming is not that difficult, it just takes practice.

What champs do you normally play? I find that last hitting with APs is harder than with AD carries.

Also, as a level 16, you're not going to have the runes and masteries to give you the early game boost to damage that REALLY helps with last hitting.

For now, just try your best with last hitting. It'll be hard because you don't have the runes/masteries and because you're new to it but here's basically what you do: Stand around a minion, continuously clicking around it so that you don't accidentally auto attack it. Then, when it's health is low (maybe, 10-15%), attack it. BAM! You got it! That's the basics really.

Now, you need to know how much dmg your champion does. Also, with aoe abilities you can act a little different. With AoE you should auto attack the minions so they're all equally low, then AoE them all down at once.

Farming under a tower is important too. Make sure that you leave enough health that the tower wont kill the minion and that it will have little enough health that you can kill it once the tower attacks it. For example, if the tower is hitting a melee minion at full health, near the beginning of the game, if the tower hits it twice, you should be able to then auto attack it for enough damage to kill it. With full health caster minions, tap them once, wait for the tower to attack it once, and then tap it again.

Farming is REALLY important in LoL. If someone has if someone has 10 kills and no farm and you have 125-150 farm, you could be basically equal in gold. My friends and I taunt each other whenever we miss farm, we get mad at ourselves when we miss a single one. It's THAT important.

Hope this helped! If you want more advice, tell me what champ you play and I could help more.

Just practice is really all it comes down to. There are no special tricks. Get used to how much damage your abilities and your auto attacks do on the different minion types, and just try to hit them as they get low.

Just practice. Each champ requires a bit of practice to get used to their particular auto attack.

edit: woops, person above me said the exact same thing. Sorry!

Virtually nobody runes for damage, and you'll only get a tiny increase in damage from masteries; being higher level doesn't directly affect your ability to last hit. (I say directly, because runes/masteries can fill other voids, allowing you to get a Doran's Blade or Longsword to start, however most players will go with a Doran's - something new players can start with anyway, as it's great for them - or boots + pots.) The only times I've seen players go for AD are on specific champion pages, such as Akali's rune page that allows her to start with both parts of her passive active.

I suggest taking your champion into a custom game with no other players, and then focusing on last hitting for 10-15 minutes. Do this whenever you have some spare time (say when you don't have enough time for a full game before you have to leave), and you'll start understanding the timing and damage of that champion (once you learn one the others are easier to pick up).

Actually it's pretty common to run AD Quints. It's a small bonus in the big picture that won't make a difference if you're not last hitting well in the first place, but it does help every so slightly, especially with last-hitting at your tower in the first few levels.

Which champ are you playing? For example Annie has a much easier time farming than Nunu.
