So is 9 pots/2 wards now the core start for top laners?

Why? Boots + pots sucked cause everyone had no choice but to pick it thanks to junglers camping lanes as the jungle camps offered no gold or exp. Now everyone has no choice but to pick pots + pots. The initial problem of 0 variety is still there. Please, just think for a sec before you post.

basically this.


variety means having options. we still have no options.

What is Long Sword + 2 pots? It's option.

It's the option for people who like decreasing their chances of winning a lane lol.

Starting Amp. Tome on Tryndamere is technically an option, but that doesn't make it a smart one.

Pot starts are for super passive play. If you want to be more agressive buying actual items is better. But from what I've seen most people don't like that. They prefer to farm until the jungler comes.


Yep .Because if you go ham with "actual" item but without ward enemy jungler comes lvl2 gives enemy top first blood , you miss 2 waves of xp and its gg

Bottom line is--LS + 2 pots is viable. Noone will flame you for it, unlike Doran's start.

Now be a good girl and shhh.

And? It's a strategy/meta shift. Gotta get used to it. They sacrifice mobility for sustain.

Good lord, first people want something other than boots and pots and now something other than pots and wards. Please stop.

who said i was complaining?...

I think it's bad... most top laners have a good early game, and if you don't have enough mobility to escape their harrass, they will just wreck you, and get a better cs.
