Strategy

  • On Summoner's Rift:
    • Promoting a Blue Melee MinionSquare melee minion will greatly increase its attack speed and attack damage, alongside other defensive stats, making it best at last hitting.
    • Promoting a Blue Caster MinionSquare caster minion will give it the least bonus stats of the three, but because it has the highest range, it is best used to offer more aggro damage if the enemy attacks its ally.
    • Promoting a Blue Siege MinionSquare siege minion will make it really tanky, and slightly increase his DPS, making it a tanky self-pushing minion. Due to the difficulty of destroying the siege minion and the heavy attack damage it brings, it can potentially net last hits without even thinking about it as well and last a long time causing it to inevitably reach the enemy turret if left unhindered.

    • I really like this on supports if I get an early sightstone and philo (in that order of importance).  I can drop it at top lane when they want...
    • Plus, if the game is going badly, the ATC (anti-turret cannon) can help split push almost without notice. (Secret agent minion.)
