Its obvious to me that im playing wrong so i need to know what i am doing wrong so i can do it right.
Thanks in advance,
P.S. Great guide. with 1 week of lol ex under my belt some people already say i'm playing 100% better then before i checked your guide out.
Runes do help a ton especially with my build. Without them his early/mid game is a little lacking, but not quite to the degree that you're experiencing. I'd say try and focus on last hitting a bit more. Like I said in the guide, you don't have to be around the creeps when they're all at high hp, just run forward and nuke or auto attack for the last hit. This way you stay out of harm (mostly) and still get all of the benefits. Being able to last hit creeps is an important skill and will grow in importance as the game changes to slightly involve individual skill more. The easiest way to last hit is completely ignore your melee creeps, and completely watch your ranged creeps. Your ranged creeps do the majority of damage, so if you watch what they're attacking you'll see what you need to last hit first. Another thing you can try is when the creeps are slightly below half, auto attack, wait til your auto attack is halfway there, then nuke. This is what I do often to speed up the last hit and ensure that I get it.
