Random blahblah - so, I've been playing a variety of characters lately and am starting to get quite decent with several imo. Been toying about in the middle lane with reasonable success (mostly as Brand). Brand is excellent for team comp imo. Very squishy if the other team can get at you in a team fight - but if they can't, the damage output is through the roof.
Another character I worked on a bit (name elludes me atm, but she has a magician costume that you can buy and her ult is to cast any of her abilities a second time that does substantial damage - she also has a unique standard ability that makes her invisible for like .5 seconds and makes a duplicate appear in her place. Anyway, she's awesome at nuking single targets and ok at chasing, but that's about it. Super great for dueling and you can accomplish a hell of a lot if you are middle lane with meiji's soulstealer. But if you don't rack up some early kills, I find her to be way too much of a waste. She's excellent for roaming as well after level 6. Anyway, seems HIGHLY dependent on those early kills (even without the soulstealer). I think brand is a better choice due to being able to nuke AOE vs her ability to only nuke individual targets. I really enjoy the playstyle with her, but its just not as good a choice as brand imo (if you had to pick one).
Other random stuff - if i do get a chance to play a bit today, I'm only about 500 IP away from my 3rd health quint. I'm looking forward to doing some jungling with that quint so I have enough durability to 1 side in like 5 minutes or so. Without those quints, its pretty difficult to do so on many characters. Anyway, I expect to start working my jungle again. I played some with jungle trundle recently with quite a bit of success anyway; gotta say, though, jungling isn't my fav thing to do anymore.
AP sion - love it. Was in a game with vlad and one of his buds the other day. Vlad went tryn and his bud when ap sion. At the end of the game, sion and tryn were soling their entire 5 man team multiple times. They were even challenging the other team to meet in front of baron and whooped them there while we watched on and worked the lanes. Anyway, this got me interested in playing some ap sion. I've actually had alot of success with this too, though I'm still settling on the build I want. Anyway, most games with me going AP sion have resulted in some pretty big wins. That said, sion is currently my fav so I'll probably be playing alot more it.
