how do you fire off combos like

DFG, mordes e, Q, R, and then ignite.

I can do it real fast with smart casting, but once add in DFG, it slows me down.

Do you activate DFG by press 1 then click on the guy?

I am a moderate player who has been playing on and off sense the beta and feel I have a fair grasp of most of the concepts in the game. However the one area I seem to be having a problem with is using activatable items. I have heard that players will rebind the item slots to different keys and was wondering where you bind yours if indeed you move them? I have played around with it but haven’t found anything more comfortable then leaving them at their original locations. I end up playing a lot of support and hate trying to use items like the Locket of the Iron Solari and missing the key.

Thanks!

Hi Ken, first thanks for doing this thread.

My question is what are the best AD carries for solo que? 1400 to 1600 elo. I've heard Vayne, but whenever I play her I run into two problems - 1) team isn't good at initiating or protecting me in teamfights 2) she has a weak early game, and i either lose the lane badly due to lack of coordination with my support or the team surrenderes before i get farmed enough to carry.

When I play Caitlin i usually win the lane but my team doesn't know how to group and finish the game so when it gets to late game, i do so much less dps than other AD carries like graves vayne kog etc.

Is AD carry just not a good role for carrying solo que in this elo? I don't prefer it but sometimes i'm forced into playing it.

I heavily advice to play Graves, who does really good at any point of the game.

you can go to key bind in your opinion and change them. Be sure that you keep everything binded where you can use your index and middle finger to press them, as these two fingers tend to be the one that can reach the most keys.

I smartcast DFG as well, and yes, I do put it on 1 key.

Any thoughts on how good Shyvana is as a jungler? Rather: I'm aware that she jungles well, but how much does she really contribute to the team beyond jungling and counter-jungling?

My two current jungle champions are Amumu (who I like to think I'm pretty good at) and Skarner (who I'm still learning). I like Shyvana's overall look and 'style', but feel like she might overlap a bit too much with Skarner to really be 'useful' to have (since I am not, unfortunately, made of Influence Points).

Shyvana offers really quick counter jungling with high DPS and good movement speed. She is not similar to skarner, as Skarner doesn't counter jungle as much as Shyvana.

One thing that you really want to see when you pick Shyvana is that a strong CC will be needed in each lane, as you don't have any CC. Teammates with CC will work much better with Shyvana, as they can stop the enemy from escaping and allow Shyvana to do her top tier jungler output.
