Before I read a guide about a specific Champion, I need to find out which one is best for me and how to best rune/mastery a support champion in general

I used to play Tristanna before deciding to go with a pure support character. The reason is because i realized that I was playing Trist as a support anyway by just using rocket jump and buster to help my teammates gank.

What I would like in a Champion is a ranged caster with great utility who can benefit the team with more than just being a buff/heal bot. being able to CC to help out with a gank/teamfight or something like that.

Another problem is that the few times I have played support I was constantly WAY behind my teamates level wise, so would love it if one of the supports was a decent minion farmer, if not I will just switch one of my summoner spells to teleport to get back in a lane quickly.

Also, I have been using 0/9/21 and ALL AP runes except Flat Health Quints, is there a better way and why?

Sounds like you should look into Taric.

Or Lux. Slow, Stun, Bubble, and Mega Death Lazor. Mana per level seals and such and shes right as rain.

yeah taric is melee (asked for ranged caster) and while his stun is great, his passive annoys me having to constantly melee to get mana and i find when i play him i die a lot (obviously my fault but I want to blame taric)

Lux seems cool, all skill shots worries me though, I am fairly new still and she definitely seems difficult to play well.

Janna seems like she could work well for me, seems to work as a well rounded support that isn't just a buffbot, and her runspeed passive could help with escaping/getting back to lane.

Is she a good choice? and if so how would you rune for her?

i win a lot with lux support, you can carry bad solo Q's with her stun and aoe slow. plus shes super fun everything is a skill shot, keeps you on your toes at all times. you can support/carry with her depending on items and how fed you are. pick her up, her farm isnt great untill you get some ap tho because you can throw your E and then 1 shot all the range minions but not untill you get some ap, but its cake from there.

Janna is one of the best: speed up for self (and a bit less for allies, but that 3% is REALLY helpful), knockup(if you it for damage on champions, you lose), ulti that both heals and functions as a osh** button(also good for pushing enemies into your allies or scattering their positions) + a shield with damage.

If you want more utility(such as better harassment), go for zilean.

I read this and all i could think about was morgana, morgana, morgana. I just started learning her and she is EXACTLY what you describe. Janna is a really bad farmer while all morg has to do is drop a puddle on the caster creeps and walk away. Her Q is a 2 second snare at LEVEL 1, this makes ganks so easy. AP and health runes are exactly what she needs, just change to 9 0 21 for the 15% magic pen and more cooldowns. Her ult is also an aoe stun/double nuke that easily decides the outcome of every teamfight. Morgana can also solo top or even mid with her wings tied. AND with her passive spellvamp + one mana regen item she can stay in lane until 20 minutes if she wants to. Her E makes her a solo champion, and it is more than just a buff/heal. it can give you or your carry the ability to simply walk through galio, amumu, ww, or ashes ult or viegs event horizon and destroy their faces.

Awesome, I have never played morgana I will definitely give her a try, thank you for answering my whole question and not just naming a champion and ignoring the rest of the post =)

I will definitely be giving Lux and Morgana a try, thanks for the replies!
