Sometimes I jungle Amumu (I don't invade with him), and I used to play Nunu.
Shen is pretty easy to escape with, I can dash through walls and stuff.
But with Skarnar and Udyr, escape isn't much of an option if I get pinched and hit with any slows or stuns.
you want to ward the red, just come in and smite steal and get out. you should be able to get away with skarner and udyr, they are both quick as well, and clear fast. Just watch enemy laners.

i find it infuriating that i get hit by skillshots all the time. well not all the time, but i'm very prone to them during the laning phase.
part of this is skill, but part of it is because i cannot predict the future. playing at 300 ping (thanks to us being located in oceania) means i have to predict at least 0.6 seconds in advance, not counting human reflexes. 0.3 seconds because the time it takes the skillshot to actually fire and you seeing it on your screen, and another 0.3 seconds before your input is registered onto the game.
this is especially evident with high-penalty skillshots like blitzcrank grabs. i'd see it coming out, move to the side, be right next to the fist, and still get grabbed anyway. it's absolutely infuriating because i'm often forced to miss cs because i predicted wrongly. (i.e. i expected the skillshot to come out, but it didn't. and i jsut missed one cs because i tried to dodge the non-existant skillshot)
if you could give some tips about how to predict skillshots correctly, it would be much appreciated.
Typically when I play a skillshot based champion, the best way to guarantee a hit is to shoot where someone is going to move to get a cs. Try moving erratically constantly so you are harder to predict, and try hiding behind minions as much as possible. Generally though, this is just practice. having a high ping is also bad. .5 seconds is an incredibly long time. In fighting games, that's like 30 frames. thats forever. you honestly should get that fixed, or switch to playing jungle where u dont need to dodge skillshots.
