6300 IP worth the grind?

The IP cost of a champion has nothing to do with how powerful they are. If you see a 6300 champ that sufficiently interests you, then definately save up. If you see cheaper costing champs that also interest you, you might just want to buy them first.

Shaco I have seen do very well when played correctly. Even the 450IP champions have a lot of counters to the 6300.

Although I have yet to play with a Shen that did anything worthwhile.

Shen is sorely in need of a bit more work. mostly in the base stat area like actually getting MR/Level for being a Melee Tank/Support. Other than that he actually takes map awareness and some reflexes to play well which is why he's generally fail.

Cait is definitely not worth it. Don't get her for 6300 IP.

Kennen is worth the 6300, IMO. He's a blast to play.

Urgot is REALLY good for 3150. Kennen is my favorite champion in the entire game. I bought him when he was 25% off last month and he is my go-to champ. I love playing him in mid or solo top. He is just a TON of fun to play. Is he worth saving up 6300 IP for? I'm not sure any champ is, id use the points for a new rune page. \

There are plenty of fun and competitive champs for less IP. I'd probably stick with those for awhile until you know there is a champ you HAVE TO HAVE for 6300. I wouldn't buy Akali right now, she is just perma-banned in Dominion most of the time and in SR sometimes too. If you don't know what champ you want next, sounds like you shouldn't spend your points. Play the champs during the free week (at least 8-10 games), then make your choice.

Also, check out your current stable and find what you are lacking. That should be the biggest thing that directs your purchases. I'm lacking a tanky AD champ, so I've been playing tanky AD types when they are free. Eventually I'll know the one I want and buy him/her. I've been testing champs for this purchase for over a month. Sion, not a fan and better AP imo. Jarvan, not good enough imo, needs a small buff (he might have got one, I need to check patch notes). Volibear, now he is a blast, probably the leader of the pack for this purchase. We will see!.


kennen was the first champion I ever bought, I loved him, after I bought him, I used him maybe 5 times then I played xih zhou and fell in love. Now I own over 40 champs and I play ad the most :-)

I personally save only use IP to buy runes and lower level champions (450 and 1350) and use RP during the usual weekly sales to buy the expensive 6300/4850?/3150 champs.

If you try to use only IP to buy champions it would take a really long time to fill up a rune page, and have a variety of champions.

Well its all taste is subjective, so if you enjoy the champ enough its worth it.
