Strategy

  • Solo melee champions sometimes start the game with Cloth Armor item Cloth Armor to improve lane sustainability.
    • The other common defensive start for such champions is Doran's Shield item 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 Doran's Shield offers, or the 15 armor and 200 left over gold that Cloth Armor item Cloth Armor provides, which can be used to purchase Control Ward item wards and Health Potion item potions.
      • Generally, unless you need the 80 extra health for trading, going Cloth Armor item Cloth Armor + 4 Health Potion item 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.
