After buying your items from the fountain, head to duo lane; also know as the lane in which the distance between the two towers are longer. Always arrive in-lane before
the minions arrive so you can get ready to help your ADC clear wave. Begin warding in the jungle transverse to the duo lane.
Deploy Rising Dawn
in such a way that it hits the first three front-line minions. This way they benefit from the protections buff and the enemy minions all get a protection debuff and magical damage. It's a win-win kind of situation. Help damage minions, but don't last them. That's reserved for your ADC. This is because last hitting minions gives your ADC more gold and EXP (they need it), while you assisting with that builds stacks on Guardian's Blessing
; stacks you won't get
if you last hit the minions. You see? Another win-win situation!
Depending on your ADC's play style he/she may decide to play aggressively, in which case you follow your ADC's lead unless you have a high chance of dying. Your ADC may also want to clear the Void Camp
for the EXP and gold. You take that buff, not
them. Continue laning.
By now you should have completed your stacks on Guardian's Blessing
. The gold will come in handy. Soon, at around 12-minutes, rotate to the middle lane. However there's a very blurred line as to when supports should rotate. The general consensus is early-middle game. If you rotate the enemy support will tacitly follow. You should always do the same. Mainly focus your rotations on mid and duo lane. Solo lane rarely needs help. If it does, help but don't overstay your welcome. When in mid lane, if your mid hasn't already warded, do it for your mid. There is a bilateral area shortly North-East and North-West of your tier 2 middle tower. Ward there.
By now you can tank a tower's brunt for a few seconds before having to have to retreat. You should help push towers when possible, as the reward is a weaker enemy Titan and a few hundred gold for everyone.
At this point tanking towers and phoenixes shouldn't hurt you too much, as long as gaia's stone does its work. Work with your ADC to push any remaining towers. Now you can sell your Chalice of the Oracle
so you can start buying sentry wards. Place these on the Fire Giant
. Its buff can make or break a team fight. When pushing all the way to the enemy Titan, go as a group. A deicide late game with 70 second cooldowns is a definite win. Your team will most likely go for the Fire Giant
. However don't forget to keep an eye on your phoenixes as sometimes enemy gods will backdoor your titan.
If you however are the ones that were pushed back play defensively until everyone respawns, then you may attempt a counter attack. You should try to defend your phoenixes while they're respawning as they gain health over time and are your last line of defense before the titan. Remember to stick together.
