Garen is a good starter champion... but he is too expensive.
Morde apperently easy to play but I am bad at him
Annie is the easiest AP caster to learn


you have come to the right place to learn read a few guides and you will pick it up quickly.

10 tips

1. you have to kill minons for gold no one tells you this but you do... learn to use a little attack on them as possible to kill them.. eventually you should be able to only attack them when one auto attack will kill.. it is called last hitting

2. Different champion types have different play styles... and it is difficult to change between them.... even champs with in thier classes have different limitations... test those limitations learn how much damage they can take...even if you feed whille learning. I think it is best to choose a role you like to play a learn it. AD ranged carry, AD melee carry, AD Bursier, AD assassin, Hydrid champion, AP Assassin, AP Caster, AP Support, Support, Tanky AP, Tank.... play free week champions till you fin one you like and stick with it. AD = attack damage AP = ability power.

3.Don't fight 1 v 2 or 3 ect..... if your ally is about to die to a 4 man gank don't try to help unless you are packing an AoE stun.

4. Don't facecheck bushes... throw a skill into a bush if you think your opponent is in there... or drop a ward.

5. After the laning phase do not go past the middle of the map alone..... ever... at the very least in twos.. but better with whole team..

6. If you are a champion without a lot of Hp don't lead the way into battle... let someone with Hp jump in first and take the heat

7. During at battle there is a few things to get your head around. Positioning, low hp at the back, high hp at the front, the tanks protect the low hp people.... assassins go for them. know the range of your skills so you don't mess up positioning when you try to cast a spell. Timing... wait for them to use spell shields and stuns before using certain skills wait for them to use thier heals and ignites. wait for them to use the skills that can kill you before you try risky things like tower diving.

8. Buy defensive items, Armor agianst AD champions and magic resist against AP champions.... generally get them after your important damage items and choose which depending on who as the most kills on the other team.

9. don't rage.

10. Wards.. use them.. they save lives.

Play a ranged character, the distance that you can attack from will give you some extra seconds out of harm's way in case you fail to anticipate an enemy attack. Keep minions between you and the enemy. Be paranoid about bushes, assume that there's somebody in them unless you can verify that they aren't (wards, skills, teammates.) Don't stand next to a bush that might have bad guys in it, as it negates any ranged benefits you have and essentially allows them to get to melee range on you without you being aware.

Try playing Ashe, she's a new player friendly champion - she's ranged, does decent damage, has skills that aren't too challenging to play with, and she has a stun and a slow, good things to keep you out of bad situations and options to get out of them should you end up in one.

If you've got a decent number of levels under your belt and aren't brand spanking new, consider restarting. If you don't keep up with the learning curve you can fall back down to the lower levels and keep playing with lower level folks, who generally aren't too experienced (people usually pick the game up at a certain pace and if you don't keep up you'll start getting destroyed.)

If you're at the bottom, well, don't worry. A lot of people who have played this game for a long time start playing at low levels, either to play with friends who are just getting started or because they find it satisfying. Keep going and it will actually get a little easier before it gets harder again.

Try to learn enemy champions. Don't study them extensively, just make mental notes when that purple character with wings stuns you, so you know that she can stun you. As you learn enemy champion abilities you'll begin to recognize what sort of threats they pose, which will help you build situational awareness of when bad stuff is about to go down. Then, you can avoid disadvantageous moments before they even happen.

Play Xin Zhao and Trynd. After you have become good with them, move on to different champions

Learn the items. Using the same item build every game is nooby and not efficent. You should be learning how to counter the enemy team through items*.

Ward bushes. Map control is the key [omgneverheardthatb4]

Last hit minions, it gives you time to harrass your enemy.

Harrass with your ranged attacks

Don't try jungling without runes or Awareness filled up on your mastery tree.

Don't get mad, you're in a normal match. Not solo queue.

Call ganks.

Don't towerdive.

Don't bush dive when you can see Garen's ass poking out.

Don't stand still.

Use item actives by press 1-6 key depending on which inventory slot it is in.

Build your items, dont just buy them straight up, it will seem it takes a whole lot longer.

Save your IP! If you are level 10 and you have somebody like Malzahar, you will completely own the game [ithink]

as above said save IP, i think its better put as this: dont spend any money on runes until you are level 20 and can make use of the best possible ones. DO NOT buy any runes that arent top tier, its a waste of IP.

That is the only thing I wish someone told me lol

Ryze is also a fairly easy champion to get started with. You can build tanky and still deal a load of damage, which leaves room for error.

I'd suggest purchasing Tier 1 Runes, as they offer about 70% of the stats for a small fraction of the price (you can get an entire page of runes for about the cost of a Tier 3 Quintessence, or about 2k IP). At least get yourself situated with a magic penetration page, and an armor penetration page with generic runes filling the rest (such as CDR glyphs, HP seals & Quints, etc.). Skip tier 2.

Try to figure out what kind of a player you like to be, A tank to throw out stuns and control team fights, a melee damage dealer, a mage running around melting faces in 1-3 attacks. Then look through the available champions to find someone you might like. Try playing ALL of the free week champions at least once through.

Mobafire has a TON of guides. I recommend these only to starters to get an idea of what kind of gear you should be looking for/what are common ways to use such and such a champ. Some of the guides though have in depth information on how to use your champion and background knowledge on how to play the game well. Once you get a handle on the guides there, and stop using the recommended builds, then you can stop all together and start gearing without following guides and use your own best judgement. Thats how I started.

Also, anyone can build tanky. You don't have to be using a tank to see that 4 of the enemy players are using mages to see that you should at least build one Magic Resist item. It'll go a long way. Melee champions tearing you apart? Build a thornmail. Small things

1 general tip for all champs and games:

don't die. dying is worse than missing a kill, its better to miss a kill and survive then get a double KO. (unless you got stuck in a sticky situation, then bring one guy down with you.) You may be getting the gold, but the enemy got it as well, not to mention the assist gold you gave his friends if you dived at that 20 hp guy in the middle of 3 of them.

1) Learn to last hit. Annie is a good champ that teaches that.
2) Never Facecheck bushes.
3) Don't die, as someone above said.
4) Objectives > kills. If you lose 4 team mates but in the process take 2 turrets and an inhib, you've gained more than them.
5) Stay away from mobafire. It's a noob trap. Solomid.net has guides by written by high elo players who know what they're doing.
6) COMMUNICATE
7) Don't play noob champs. It's better to start off with a hard champ, struggle a few games then get it. Your skill rises exponentially if you do that.
8) Learn to build against the enemy team. No build is set and stone. If they're all ap buying that thornmail is a waste of money.
9) Watch high elo streams and copy what they do.
10) ward
11) Don't rage
12) Always be doing something.
13) ???
14) Profit.
