Summoner Spells Back to Top

14.png : Spell that deals true damage, grants vision of target, and reduces healing of target over 5 seconds.


3.png : Spell that reduces movement speed and attack speed, lowers armor and magic resistance, and their damage output for 2.5 seconds.


Exhaust over Ignite

When should I take Exhaust?

  • Need to protect carries ( Such as: 18.png222.png7.png91.png )
  • Prevent burst damage ( Such as: zedR.pngsyndraR.png )
  • Generally easier to use

HOW YOU SHOULD BE USING EXHAUST
ALWAYS exhaust the BIGGEST source of damage, then the next step is to decide who to exhaust, based on who you want to peel for the most in a teamfight or during the laning phase. 



Example: your bot lane consists of 22.png and 267.png, against the enemy's 236.png and 432.png, if you are being pushed back, and the enemy 432.png lands a clutch stun bardQ.png and deals his burst, then most likely the 236.png would follow up on it. 432.png will be weak and redundant for an exhaust, so 3.png Lucian for better trade and overall better play.



Ignite over Exhaust

When should I take Ignite?

  • Kill potential far greater than Exhaust
  • Can get carry ahead in lane ( Some champs that would appreciate the snowball effect would be 119.png67.png )
  • Prevent specific / regen heavy champs from healing ( Such as: 36.png50.png )
  • Exerts more laning pressure than Exhaust
  • Gives vision which can be found useful in some circumstances
  • Generally more popular and more commonly used

HOW YOU SHOULD BE USING IGNITE
DO NOT use ignite to start the trade, and end the trade during the laning phase. Use 14.png when you think the enemy ADC will use their 7.png to reduce healing effects and GREATLY affect the outcome of your trade/skirmish. Typically use Ignite if you are able to kill them in 5 seconds or less as the 14.png timer is 5 seconds.


Example: (Same Champions) your fellow ADC 22.png and you have gone aggressive because of maybe a misplay or miscalculation, before killing them, you want to use 14.png when they're approximately 20% - 30%  health and make sure you're able to win the trade whether that means killing them or making them burn summoners. (Such as 14.png3.png7.png4.png)

During invades take namiQ.png first for the crowd control effect, followed with namiW.png, levels 4 through 18 will generally be the same no matter the circumstances

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    Standard
    FIRST BACK | MAJOR TIP: GET SWEEPERS AS SOON AS YOU GRAB A SIGHTSTONE

Core Items

    early core, look to eye of the watchers and mobility boots for map pressure
    If someone else has locket, get banner of command instead, but try telling teammates you will go locket instead because of windspeakers
    Finish 20% CDR and grab some extra armor and the unique effect with it.

Situational Items

    Consider all of these when achieving the 'late game' stage (Usually noted at 45mins+)
    ionian boots are great replacement for boots of mobis if you need early cdr and different build path
    Lately, Zz'Rot Portal has become one of the most cost efficient items in the game, 2700 for free lane consistent lane pressure along with armor and magic resistance.
    Going ionian boots path? Look to finalize your build like this, please feel free to add variables and change the build to your likings
    boots of mobility path? look to complete your build making it similar to this one

In my situational section of the item category, I listed two build paths for what your build should look like by end or late game.


In my opinion, the Ionian boots and Eye of the Watchers build path is stronger and much more effective, along with mikael's crucible bonus heal and shield bonus, combined with locket and windspeaker's, can absolutely change teamfights.

Matchups Back to Top

  • Sona

VS

Sona

Medium

Medium, reasoning is because Nami's namiE.png+namiW.png poke is stronger at trading if you get the heal back. However, Nami's trading only gains the upperhand pre-6 in my opinion since the new Sona ult sonacrescendo.png passive allows Sona to mash her keyboard and will be able to dish out multiple sonahymnofvalor.pngsonaariaofperseverance.pngs + sonapassive.png which is hard to deal with but manageable.

Author's Note Back to Top

Hey guys! My name is Phantyro and I play 267.png time and time again as she is my go to support at the bottom lane and I'm here to use what I have learned, to hopefully inspire and teach fellow learners of Nami or even veterans some insightful information to further understand Nami!



It's not the most in-depth guide, and it's absolutely lacking. (I'm working on it.) However, leave a comment if it's helped you understand anything about support or 267.png in general!

You may have known me or read my other guides (Which are now private as I don't update them anymore) but I plan to pour my absolute heart and soul into this guide. It will be my pride and joy.

So ladies and gentlemen, without further a do, let me take the pleasure of helping you climb that ladder! Without feet of course ;)

And as always, thank you for reading, caring, and/or even commenting about the guide.
