tl;trt: What are the fail-proof champs for each of the 5 rolls. Not looking for the best

I've played 99% of my games on 3s Map (a friend that introduced me to the game plays 3s...and I fell in love).

Basically I'm getting a little bored with the map and need a change....but I'm scared to head into 5v5 at lvl30 (around 350 games won on 3s) without much experience on SR.

I think I know the meta for 5s from reading around. Just need to know strong champs for starting out on 5s. Not necessary the best champs...but ones that can bounce back. Get what I'm asking? lol

Top: GP?
Mid: Morde?
Jungler: Shy?
Solo Carry: Graves?
Support: ???

(I have most of the champions...Riot loves me)

Support is situational m8. If you want high sustain/ defensive farm go soraka. If you want offensive, either Jana/Leona ( Leona being most aggressive of all supports with no sustain) If you like mixed go Alistar ( very situational again). Taric with MF or Vayne. Oh and btw NuNu support with KogMaw has been popular for a while and being used so much in IEM Hannover right now.

People don't even put Rammus into Jungle coz he's 100% banned lol.

Tried Taric on support with Vayne (vs graves/shen) and we got wrecked. Next game I went Shy in jungle and it went better. 5s is a totaly different beast than 3s.

I thought Support would be easier to start 5s with. Mostly I felt useless on bot. :S

Thanks for the tips LichKingRaider. Maybe I'll try out Janna...as we were pushed against our own tower 99% of the time. Me having no mana left from healing Vayne non-stop.

Hey there, I was in a similiar situation just like you with switching over to 5s. My topic should be floating around here somewhere or if you search for it I believe its titled "Alright Here Goes".

Not sure if you are doing premades with some friends or not but thats what helped a lot with my switch. Feel free to add me if you are interested in playing considering we are all still in the process of learning and switching together.

The switch is a devlish thing I tell ya, I'm already addicted.

Goodluck!

I remember I used to only play 3s, then I started to play 5s and hardly look back.

Maokai is a very good jungle. Stack saplings at blue at 1:22 and you pretty much have an easy blue.
