Hello there, AlexHawks again.

I'm here with the second part of 'support in the MID lane'. I do feel quite dirty past days, because I didn't have any Cold showers lately, tho I will still try to get this post to Maximum efficiency. So lets jump right into it.



BlitzcrankSquare Blitzcrank

One of the less known Mid laners, BlitzcrankSquare Blitzcrank is a great counter to most of the squishy Mid laners. People don't really know his Mid lane potential. but it's really, really high. Rocket Grab Rocket Grab and Static Field Static Field both scale 100% of AP. Also, his Static Field Static Field has a great passive (Every 2.5 seconds, Blitzcrank fires a lightning bolt at one random nearby enemy unit, dealing magic damage to it. This is not affected by cooldown reduction, and will not target enemies in stealth) which deals 300magic damage (+20% AP) at max rank, every 3.5seconds to a nearby enemy. It's very easy to lock up priority targets with AP BlitzcrankSquare Blitzcrank, because he has a pull, a knock up, and most importantly, silence. Keep in mind that his Static Field Static Field's passive won't work when it's on cooldown, so only use it when needed. His Power Fist Power Fist works great with Lich Bane item Lich Bane (Sheen item Sheen). You should also remmember, that your passive, Mana Barrier Mana Barrier can help you to survive with low health, but don't forget that it isn't that strong w/o any mana items. You should be maxing your Rocket Grab Rocket Grab first, due to it's massive damage.

Who is BlitzcrankSquare Blitzcrank good against in the mid lane?

He is great against squishy Long/mid range champions like AniviaSquare Anivia or AnnieSquare Annie, and also quite good while fighting short range champions like KatarinaSquare Katarina.

Who should you avoid while playing him mid?

AP BlitzcrankSquare Blitzcrank shouldnt have alot of problems against any of champions, but champions with high mobility, like AhriSquare Ahri or LeBlancSquare LeBlanc might be a more difficult challenge.

What should you buy as a Mid Blitzcrank?


LuluSquare Lulu

Not as great as AD lulu, but still very strong, the Mid lane AP lulu. She gets a huge HP buff thanks to her ultimate,  Wild Growth Wild Growth, since it scales of 50% AP. Her 80% slow on Glitterlance Glitterlance is very stong, allowing to catch up really fast. She has rather low cool downs, which is great for mid lane. One of highest poke potentials in game. Very hard to gank, since she has not only AP and HP buffs, but a movement speed buff also. After using  Help, Pix! Help, Pix!, it's easier to hit Glitterlance Glitterlance. You should obviously max Glitterlance Glitterlance first.

Who is LuluSquare Lulu good against in the mid lane?

LuluSquare Lulu is rather good at fighting short range ad or ap champions, In example: Kha'ZixSquare Kha'Zix or EvelynnSquare Evelynn.

Who should you avoid while playing her mid?

Champions who can outrange/outpoke her, like LuxSquare LuxXerathSquare Xerath or SyndraSquare Syndra.

NamiSquare Nami

One very underused and underrated thing, NamiSquare Nami Mid. Mid lane NamiSquare Nami most likely requires more skill than any other support in the Mid lane, since it's rather hard to hit her Aqua Prison Aqua Prison, which opens up the posibility to land a combo. Keep in mind that her Aqua Prison Aqua Prison can interrupt channelling spells, like KatarinaSquare Katarina's Death Lotus Death Lotus. Also, she has the passive, Surging Tides Surging Tides, which can help her with bonus movement speed, giving you a higher chance to hit the abilitys  Her Ebb and Flow Ebb and Flow bounces between her allies and enemies,  so it should do alot of damage in teamfights (50% AP scaling on damage, 30% on heal). Tidal Wave Tidal Wave does have a 70% AP scaling, which is really good, and it also slows the opponent, which enables Liandry's Torment item Liandry's Torment's passive. Keep in mind that in critical situations, you can use your Aqua Prison Aqua Prison on yourself, and you will still get the movement speed buff from your passive, Surging Tides Surging Tides.

Who is NamiSquare Nami good against in the mid lane?

Nami is really good against medium range champions like RyzeSquare Ryze or AnnieSquare Annie, but she has to be very carefull not to get into their range.

Who should you avoid while playing her mid?

Bursty champions with gap closers like KatarinaSquare Katarina or TalonSquare Talon could potentialy be a problem.
