Unless they have a wall jumper (trynd, nidalee) you dont have to see the dragon with your ward. If you place a bit farther back you get more sight on the river and can still cover the entrance to the dragons cave.
Same with baron but even more so since one jumper cant usually solo him.
Also if you want to expand the guide a little you could mention teleporting to your wards and good places for that..

This thread makes me feel like i should think much more when I place my wards. Many times I don't put them at the most "optimal" location [ie: that dragon ward]

You don't have to, indeed. However it's my personal preference to do so, being able to see dragons hp can allow you to strike at a time where you can steal it effectively (do remember to note if your opponents have smite) and gives you a better idea of when you should hit them (most effectively @ early game since junglers will be soloing it)

And I've noted teleportation thanks

why didnt you mention the 2 little bushes in the 2 crossroads ?


Hmm, I didn't cover them as they pretty much provide the same vision as long as you place them in the bush, but I can see them as an alternate spot for baron/dragon vision. I'll update them on the main post once magma chamber is out (i'll cover wards there too) since the current organisation of pictures is deviously tedious to update.
