Notes

  1. Updated for League of Legends Patch 14.1

How it works

  1. This build is all about Imperial Mandate.
  2. And also all about slows.
  3. You support through disrupting fights, being annoying, Slowing/Healing/Buffing and soaking damage.

How to play

  1. Your core items - Imperial Mandate and optionally Rylai's Crystal Scepter for even more slows (and consistency).
  2. Your CC triggers Glacial Augument that slows AOE. All Slows trigger Font of Life AND Imperial Mandate, healing and buffing your allies.
  3. Since LoL Patch 14.1 Imperial Mandate is changed. Now you need your team to proc it to deal any damage. So you need to play a little bit differently. Do not spam mindlessly. Try coordinating it with your team - when they are about to poke or when they go in.
  4. Font of Life heal can trigger various support items, like Ardent Censer or Staff of Flowing Water or even Moonstone Renewer!
  5. You need to adapt your items to the game. Enemy team heavy on AP? Buy MR. They heavy on AD? Buy Armor. You need some damage? Well buy that.

Tips and Tricks

Riot
  1. It's easier to land Arcanopulse on an enemy when they're moving toward or away from you, rather than side to side.
  2. Eye of Destruction will make landing Arcanopulse easier as the target will be slowed.
  3. If you stun an enemy with Shocking Orb, follow up with a guaranteed center hit on Eye of Destruction.
