Strategy

  • Solo melee champions sometimes start the game with Cloth Armor item.png Cloth Armor to improve lane sustainability.
    • The other common defensive start for such champions is Doran's Shield item.png Doran's Shield. The choice between the two comes down to whether one prefers the 80 flat health, 6 health regeneration, and 8 less damage from champion basic attacks that Doran's Shield item.png Doran's Shield offers, or the 15 armor and 200 left over gold that Cloth Armor item.png Cloth Armor provides, which can be used to purchase Sight Ward item.png wards and Health Potion item.png potions.
      • Generally, unless you need the 80 extra health for trading, going Cloth Armor item.png Cloth Armor + 4 Health Potion item.png potions is a better laning choice, as the 6 HP/5 will take 8 minutes and 20 seconds to equalize 4 potions' 600 health regen, the 8 less damage from autoattacks does nothing against AD casters, and does not build into anything.
