With heart of gold gone, what's the new support build look like?

philostone first and eventually a sight stone. you no longer have to keep buying wards. After that your regular aura items wouldn't be a bad choice.

I've read several threads saying the sight stones aren't worth it.

I've done philo and aegis and boots and upgrade aegis.

More recently trying the pick for money and upgrade it for the two minion things.

Just seems other than buying up wards I really don't know what else to buy

probably because people forget to use it. I had great map awareness when I picked it up.

But in all honesty just use the aura items that you used before. Just because HOG is gone doesn't mean you have to go a completely different build.

Plus with Pick Pocket you can net more.

If they're support players stating this I find that very very scary.

Were support for a reason.

Wards 75g

sightstone 700g 2 wards.

700/75= 9.33333

once you buy you're alrdy down to 7 to break even..

After 9 wards its in your favor... and if you are not buying more than 9 wards in one match as a support /concerned look.

Support SHOULD buy this. No reason not to.

I think it is that you can only have 2, then 3 after upgrade out at a time. To cover the map you are still having to buy other wards taking up a second space.

Lots of discussion on it in general. I'll give it a shot from now on.

I think the idea of limiting it to 2/3 wards at a time is to encourage more strategy in placing wards and less in spamming the map with them

You're missing one option: Sight Ward on top of your normal warding procedures instead of a replacement. This is the route I'll be trying out over the next week.
