Tips and Tricks

General
  1. You can be pretty good at peeling from your Team or Carries. Enemy has Fiddlesticks? Maybe Zed that jumps on your Ashe? Just ult them.
Riot
  1. Offense is your defense. Keep fighting to build up larger Indestructible shields.
  2. Hitting multiple champions with the same ability can help quickly activate Darkness Rise.
  3. Use Realm of Death on a low health enemy to guarantee the kill and keep their stats for the rest of a teamfight.
