In this thread, you post one random pro-tip for league of legends.

This can be anything from a gameplay tip to an item tip... anything at all, that's relatively simple (as opposed to a huge guide or walkthrough on a champion, for example) and quick.

I'll start:

  • As Janna, to evade enemies, when running from them fire your (Q) Howling Gale spell backwards but as soon as it starts charging, tap Q again to fire it off early (avoiding having to wait which would render this technique pointless) - it will hit someone who is directly behind you, knocking them into the air, allowing you to gain some ground on them.

Malphite's passive shield rebuffs 1 second before the animation shows it. If you are harassing him, be slightly more aggressive now! If you are playing as him, go in as soon as you see the buff, not the actual armor.

Thanks for contributing! =)

  • As Teemo, take advantage of player pathfinding. Before you place a mushroom, to get the best spot, click on an area of the map to move to (that you'd expect an enemy to be moving towards from where you are) and hit stop(H for me) on a corner where Teemo turns, and place a mushroom right there! - As this will be an ideal place due to pathfinding for each champion (ie your enemies!) being the same as yours.

Pro Tip of the Day:

As Ashe, During Early - Mid game, if you notice anyone missing from the map. Shoot your arrow toward any of the towers on any lane. You will usually get a hit, resulting in a 5s Stun and even a kill.

- ALWAYS, and I do mean ALWAYS...Be doing something, LoL favors those who are constantly busy.
Choose any from this list to be doing at any given point in the game:
- Farming Lanes
- Ganking, or moving to gank
- Pushing a Tower / Inhibitor
- Defending a Push
- Killing Dragon / Nashor
- Jungling with a priority on Golem / Lizard buff mobs
Minimize your shopping trips, and only go back if you are swimming in cash, or have to due to low health. Otherwise you should continue farming, not like you lose money when you die. You lose more by money / EXP by going back to base often, than you would if you only go when you can A) Buy 2 items, B) Buy a 5g/10sec item early (<15 mins in), or C) Buy an item that needs charges (Mejal's, Rod of the Ages, Bloodthirster (and only when you can afford it in its entirety)).

A good use of Rammus taunt skill is to pick out an enemy melee in a team fight or when their hovering by the tower and run away making them follow you.

When playing an initiator, don't be afraid to die. Going in with Malphite's ult, using all your abilities, and then running so you hope you don't die doesn't help your team as much as you staying in there dealing damage would. Just be careful when you initiate confrontations so that your team can get the killing blows. 4v5 is in the 4 man team's favor if the 5 all have less than half health.

Related to this its usually best to never place mushrooms directly up against walls of tree's or paths..place it off the wall about 3/4ths of a character wide. People will still cut that corner and hit the shroom as they have decent hit ranges, but it will also be more likely to hit people who are roaming or changing lanes giving you sight on them and potentially killing them.

With Gangplanck, you can use Raise Morale to deny the enemy Last Hits on your minion, and at the same team any teammate with you will recieve a movement and attack speed buff. A great chance to gank!

When playing Evelyn, try ganking at/around 5 with exhaust if your not solo. Her level 6 ultimate wont guarantee anything extra.
