So I mained support in Season 2 and I'm just now getting into playing more carry roles. I usually do ok with the laning phase, at 10 minutes I'm normally at about 60-75 cs. Not great, I'd like to get that number closer to 90(I think at 10 minutes the max cs is 107 if you hit every creep?), but not bad either. Anyways, any tips on farming after the laning phase is over? I've read quite a few guides on last hitting and farming, but I can't seem to find anything regarding farming after the laning phase is over. I usually take the easy jungle camps, wraiths and wolves, or if I'm playing Ryze I will solo blue if it's up. Other than cleaning up pushed creep waves, what are some other ways of getting farm? It seems like when team fights break out and both teams are contesting objectives I have a hard time farming. Any input would be appreciated. Thanks!

Lol. NOBODY LIKES YOU!

Anyway, you should really work on your last hitting - you should be able to get every last hit in the lane if you're under no pressure, and preferably all of them under a lot of pressure (though that's not even something most pros would be able to do, I imagine).

If you're playing mid, you should be taking wraiths whenever possible, and generally wolves too. Farm your lane whenever possible. If you're bottom/top, generally the same thing. You can sometimes take wolves/golems as top lane, and same as bottom. Make sure you're not losing your lane's CS for it, though!

As for after the laning phase, you should farm a lane whenever possible. If your team isn't posturing for dragon/baron or keeping them off of dragon/baron, go farm a lane. If you're posturing for baron, you can still fairly safely farm mid, top, and wolves (as blue side), or mid, top, wraiths, and golems (as purple side).

Always make sure you have proper wards, though, so you don't get caught!
