well we're absolutely flattered of all the ways that you could avoid interacting with your family on christmas day you've chosen to spend time with us here at skillcap lucky for you we've got a christmas special just for you today as we all know we have our low elo expert hector play in the depths of elo hell that's literally his job description to figure out the best way to carry yourself out of there he's given us a lot of tips for climbing in general but now he'll be sharing his top 5 picks for every role that will give you the
00:32
easiest time carrying without breaking a sweat the first recommendation is for top and it's gotta be kennen one of the big issues for why kennen doesn't seem like a top tier solo queue pick is because people try and copy what professional players do without really knowing how to for example a lot of pro canon players run stuff like unsealed spell book or conquer and they also start doran's blade and play aggressively in lane and here's what happens when players imitate this they push aggressively thinking that's what kennen should do
01:03
and then they immediately get ganked becoming worthless for the rest of the game that should not be the case at all and here's the three tips hector recommends to make kennen look like the most broken top laner of all time first builds that require you to play well and aggressively are generally just worse in low elo which is why you should run this rune page instead it's really safe and also looks to scale into late game which is where you're going to shine the most not only that but don't start doran's blade start dark seal or doran's shield
01:34
depending on how hard the lane is that you're in you're going to feel a lot weaker in lane than you usually would with this setup but that's fine just think of yourself as a kassadin waiting to insta win the game later on the second tip that he gives is to max w then e then q not q w e we will admit that this is technically inferior to qmax but it makes your life infinitely easier and can even be better in certain situations the most important thing is that it does give you reliable waveclear which canon
02:06
sort of struggles with for a while by maxing q you'll be nearly one shotting waves with this setup ensuring that you stay farmed seeing as how we're recommending that you play for late game it'll help you get to your core items more quickly it also maxes out your aoe abilities first your goal is to play for team fights anyway it's totally fine to give up some laning power for this the last tip is a big one stop building zhonya's hourglass or at least stop prioritizing it guys we're gonna mention it again
02:36
you're not playing in high elo zhonya's is a bait item on champions like kennen and vladimir after a full combo you're not really that useful so you're better off just going raw damage and hoping to instantly win the fight believe it or not you won't need zonias if your opponents just die from the initial burst these three tips seem a little troll but if you apply them properly you're going to be more farmed and stronger than usual when you actually do go into a fight you're going to light people up like an affluent white neighborhood let's actually go over your build in
03:08
detail so you can pop off as well your first item should be protobelt or night harvester when you're against short range enemy compositions like this you'll want to prioritize night harvester you don't need another gap closer when the enemy team is going to run right at you this means that you would obviously rush protobelt against long range compositions that can zone you if you feel like you're going to need help reaching the enemy backline then go protobelt simple as that for your second item go demonic embrace against beefy enemy team comps for the percentage
03:40
damage and horizon focus against squishy teams that you want to burst instantly for your third item always go death cap or void staff depending on the game's circumstances again it's all about the damage after one of these items you can start considering banshees or zonias but we'd highly recommend continuing to amplify your one-shot potential and here's the full list of items that you could finish your build with depending on what you've already built utility is definitely fine at this point since you should be pumping massive damage already
04:11
do keep in mind that if you've fallen behind in the game though that you should probably just build more damage your ultimate needs to be instantly killing everyone otherwise zhonya's is useless you'll just die right after coming out of stasis anyway now for the adc role being a marksman on christmas is lovely you'll have a nice meal with your family and feel blessed knowing how much your parents have sacrificed to raise you they truly love you and would give anything to make your life better then you go back to school after christmas break and see vygar
04:41
across the hall he's got the new apple m1 mac and some airpods max to go along with it as you sit down for class you also overhear him talking about how he crashed his car over the break but his parents bought him a new one because he gets straight a's thanks to his private tutor who would you rather be at the end of the day well let's take a look at veigar's home life to make you hate him a bit more veigar is one of if not the strongest late game champions due to his passive infinitely scaling ap is disgusting like
05:12
this game for example at 14 minutes he has 140 stacks of his passive think about that that's seven amplifying tomes that is literally over 3 000 gold worth of ap sure he's built around it as a champion but it also scales so ridiculously well it's not balanced at all versus players who don't punish you during the lane phase the reason we don't see him too often is that in mid lane priority matters a lot and his waveclear is very weak early on veigar can play safe but if the enemy
05:43
katarina just roams then the game can snowball out of control before he can do anything in bot lane though priority matters a lot less players tend to stay in lane farming since marksmen generally don't have much agency to do much early on that's a big reason why low elo adc players in general don't have much knowledge on what to do even when they do have lane priority they'll kind of just keep shoving waves into you and you can just safely scale under tower the thing about this champion is how strong his ultimate is when doing
06:14
execute damage with any damage at all from your support and the enemy laners will instantly pop to a single combo the second your level 6. the laning phase is really easy but it just gets better after that especially with hector's secret tech for veigar itemization here's your build run electrocute to amplify your burst for your items rush either ludens or leandries based on whether you want burst or tank busting capabilities you'll want a tier of the goddess as well but you won't be upgrading it it's simply there to give you the extra mana
06:46
veigar requires after that you can do regular ap items if you need damage that's fine or you can follow hector's tech and just build literal tank items because you don't need any extra damage remember what we said about his passive well this is a build hector thought of and shared with us a while back and we've gotta say it's pretty stupid how good it is quick note yeah the dead man's plate doesn't build out of giant's belt anymore the thing about vygar is that he gets so many free stats that you can just build
07:17
tank items to fix his actual issues by garlax mobility which makes dead man's plate excellent for helping him run down people to simply press r it also really helps when assassins are trying to get on top of you you're a lot tankier than people expect and you can usually get out of really dumb situations we want to make something clear this may seem like one of those dumb youtube builds that challengers recommend when they're just smurfing but this is a competitively viable build that looks to abuse veigar's overtuned passive we highly recommend it if you're ever
07:49
fed on him since it makes it impossible to throw your lead while you still one shot everyone alright on to jungle which is the role hector hesitated the most on what he'd recommend he did a lot of window shopping for the perfect recommendation he considered recommending ad ignite shyvana which can cheese a lot of people with her damage but it wouldn't compare to the power of the champions we've seen so far elise was also a consideration he's very strong in the meta considering how good rushing tier 2 boots is right now
08:19
the movement speed early on lets you make the rounds and give coal to all the naughty boys and girls of the rift unfortunately despite being ridiculously far ahead and owning this particular game he somehow got backdoored by a scion this was clearly elise's fault as a champion so he couldn't recommend her in good conscience at the end of the day there's really one standout jungler at the moment and that is graves graves is like socks for christmas you know that you're getting them you're not excited about them but at the end of the day you really needed those
08:51
socks now we're not just recommending graves in general but rather the negan build as certain people call it the negan build is literally just investing as much as you can into lifesteal for runes you'll be running fleet footwork overheal legend bloodline and ravenous hunter that's not all for your two first core items you'll want to rush immortal shield bow and then bloodthirster here's what it looks like in game the point is that you walk around with this big shield thanks to overheal and bloodthirster
09:21
combine that with graves natural tankiness and he's a beefy boy but that's not the best part let's watch this is your kill not that impressive he's three levels up and it all seems normal so far let's watch the next part in slow motion the autos once for 707 health off a single hit and then again to top himself off and his shield he went from low health to over full in just two auto attacks yes this build is gross graves truly is
09:52
a front line bruiser adc initiator support burst mage carry champion he's very easy to play and incredibly rewarding when you manage to get all these items together as for the rest of the build it's pretty simple you can finish things off with any of the following crit items that you need or if you want to go down the lifesteal route even further that's also fun you can literally go five lifesteal items and boots and that's totally fine you won't be dealing as much dps but does that really matter when you're
10:22
unkillable alright on to the mid lane where our recommended pick is going to be lissandra lissandra is a bit like kennan and veigar one like with kennen people get the wrong idea when building her when lissandra was popular high elo players ran stuff like aftershock an unsealed spell book along with teleport for team-oriented plays that's the exact opposite of what you'll want to do you'll be running electrocute and ignite most of your games so that you can solo kill everyone who comes near you scoring kills on the sandra is as easy
10:54
as sitting down and watching football with all your relatives while your mom makes dinner which takes hours of hard labor love you mom you just press r and unleash your abilities it's really that easy and rewarding much like veigar in bot lane a lot of her biggest weaknesses also don't exist in low elo players are either too stubborn or don't know to run cleanse versus her they also don't build merck dreads when they should be the first thing that you buy in the matchup and you know for sure that no adc is going to build qss
11:24
and even if they do they'll forget to use it anyway best of all lissandra's biggest lane counters are high range control mages which are not popular at all in low elo that's because they're very punishing to play considering everyone in low elo tends to play assassins in mid lane which yeah lissandra hard counters champions that set up ganks are also very powerful considering no one plays around ganks your bait can be as obvious as an olive garden gift card from your uncle and your opponent will fall for it every single time you're always going to get
11:56
ganks too since junglers love when their mid laners pick lissandra what really takes her over the top though is her itemization just like kennen don't fall for the utility bait by buying zhonyas rush protobelt as your first item to help you get in range for your ultimate then hector recommends literally just buying death cap as your second item she has insane ap ratios and it allows you to consistently one shot people throughout the game instead of having to rely on your team to follow up on engages her playmaking potential is massive when
12:27
you build raw damage if you get strong you won't even need your ultimate to kill people which is when you can really toy with your opponents she's mobile easy to play and a hard scaling carry those are the best qualities in a champion for low elo soloq after death cap keep building damage if possible stuff like void staff or horizon focus will allow you to keep one shotting whoever you come in contact with we're not saying that you should never build zhonya's or banshee's veil just like canon build them reactively if
12:58
you actually need them later on in the game you are not an initiator in low elo you're a carry first and foremost and you should be playing to 1v5 the game finally hector's final gift to us is going to be nami whoa whoa whoa don't ask for the gift receipt just yet hear us out on why he thinks nami is so strong nami will not be nearly as flashy as any of our other previous picks but that's precisely why she flies under the radar as a power pick first we have to discuss
13:28
her laning phase supports have a lot of power during the early levels in the bot lane while marksmen are weak supports reign supreme with their better base stats and abilities nami is the queen of early trading there are very few champions in the game who can deal with her pressing w and auto winning every trade not only does she win short trades and have great sustain for the lane but she has incredible agency when it comes to forcing all ins her wave covers so much area that you can force a fight whenever you feel like
13:59
it by either knocking your opponent up or blocking their retreat if nami is winning lane as she should be she can extend that lead very easily forcing fights whenever her ultimate is up but that's not why hector recommends her if you've watched the whole guide you'll know that every pick he recommended is a safe hyper-scaling carry nami is no different he firmly believes that she's just as strong if not stronger than a late game sona that's a bold claim considering how broken sona is late game
14:30
it's kind of weird but something that isn't talked about is how ridiculous nami's ap scalings are she scales quite well but it doesn't feel that way due to how her abilities are fragmented her w seems fine and balanced but when you look at the total number you start to see how crazy it really is for example look at the three separate bounces of this w if you add all of those up that single w did about 870 points worth of damage and healing that's a single ability from the support by the way not including everything else
15:01
that she's doing in this skirmish not only that but once she gets some ap her passive starts giving players nearly mobility boots worth of movement speed her pick potential is crazy if anyone is slightly out of position she can speed her ally up to catch them and then slow them with her e leading to guaranteed kills it's safe to say movement speed is the strongest stat in the game and she has an abundance of it not just for herself but for her entire team it becomes impossible to get away from her or catch her
15:32
she is quite the slippery fish so why isn't she permabanned thing well it's the same issue a lot of other champions that we talked about face people think she's just a lane bully and don't properly build to really abuse her kit let's specifically look at her w scaling it has a 110 ap ratio when going for a double heal and a 130 ratio when going for a double damage bounce unfortunately each bounce gets weaker that is until she gets 200 ap when her bounces actually start to get
16:03
stronger what we're saying here is that just from her w a ton of ability power is really good on her because you want your big ap ratio bounces to get even stronger post 200 ap if she could be a mid laner she would with this scaling but we're going to have to make do with what supports can buy run this rune page specifically for gathering storm to scale into the late game you could get super greedy and run this full ap page and it might even be better it's definitely worse for lane though so we'll leave that up to you
16:34
for items go spell thieves edge and pick up an early dark seal your first core item should be imperial mandate due to the slow synergy it has with nami after that complete meiji's you want raw ap meiji's gives you the most ap for the cheapest amount of gold it sounds troll but build it even if you're feeding enchanters can stack it really easily anyway with their buffs not only that but it's the cheapest legendary item in the game which will give you an extra 15 ap from imperial mandate right away
17:05
after those items and boots you should have two slots left you can build zonias if you need it otherwise go arden sensor and staff of flowing water to round out your build do not even look at redemption or mckills they take a lot of skill to use well but more importantly even if you can use them well they require your teammates to be competent you're playing in low elo you do not have competent teammates and that's all you need to know to play nami she is not a complicated champion to play whatsoever and is made significantly stronger by
17:37
aiming to get as much ap as possible with that we conclude this christmas special we hope you enjoyed and happy holidays to you all [Music]
