Janna's Howling Gale

Janna's Howling Gale move requires you to listen carefully for the sound so you dont get knocked around by it. Now I dont know about you guys, but I like to listen to heavy metal rock music when I PVP. Can there be some other indication besides just a sound on this one or am I doomed to music-less rounds when Janna is on the enemy team?

You can always look for a swirling patch of air on the ground.

this sounds like a personal problem.

It only travels slightly faster than a skillshot. So... avoid it when you see it?

If you're playing against a Janna and laning against her as well, you should always be moving, so she has more trouble trying to tag you with it, and will do it less to save mana.

Just don't let her get into the bushes, and you'll be golden.

also, when she uses the skill, she gets oriented in the direction of the gust. try watching where she looks when she uses it.

I played a game and noticed she noticeably(at least early game) loses a chunk of her mana when she casts Howling Gale.

To be honest I need the sound effects while in game... It definitely provides a greater sense of what's going on around you than if you can't hear anything. I'd suggest leaving the sound effects on... this is a perfect reason why lol

Rock on OP.

My natural strategy, and a highly effective one at that, when facing any skillshotter is to just keep moving. Move erratically, jump in to poke them a bit if you feel the need. But Morgana is easy to dodge. Stand behind minions. Blitzcrank? Stand behind minions. Lux? Stand behind two minions.

Heimer and Anivia? Their skillshots are slow. And Heimers in particular is really easy to see. Just learn which enemies have skillshots, and which are the most worrisome. Most, if not all skillshots can be dodged entirely by accident by simply moving around a lot.

A good opponent won't waste their mana on skillshots they probably can't land.

Janna in particular likes to fire her Gale so it'll hit the most minions. Just keep that in mind if you ever see the Gale forming. Janna likes to harass but she also doesn't want to spend all that mana for nothing.

Turn the sound on. God kills a kitten every time Fiddles goes "phhhzzzZZZZZZZZZTTT" in the middle of the group and you don't notice.
