Im wondering if there is a guide to the most basic info for the game.
Here are some examples of what I mean?
How is damage, armor calculated..what about spell vamp/lifesteal?
How do you know if something deald physical or magic damage?
How does adding ability power scale damage from abilities?
What do the terms pusher, jungler etc. mean?
What are the basic roles and strategy for different maps?
And a collections of basic tips, faqs and other such things more exp players know.
Im really new to RTS, I never really played any before besides casually, and would like to get better at LoL, but I feel like there is a lot I dont know.
For the most basic info try here
Its the basic of the basic really
1.) Damage is calculated by many different factors like how much damage your bility or attacks do an then its gets a bit difficult to understand from here. Damage from auto attacks or abilities get stronger depending if you buy damage or ability power(More info on #4). Then Your damage is lowered depending on how much Armor or Magic Resist the enemy has but having armor or magic penetration reduces the amount loss from amor or magic resist.
2.) Auto attacks deal Physical Damage and for spells alot of them either Deal Magic Physical or True Damage.
Physical Damage is Lowered by Armor
Magic Damage is Lowered by Magic Resist
True Damage can not be lowered at all
To see what damage your spell does it should say in the description
For example: "Irelia, the Will of the Blades" Does all Three damage types
"Irelia dashes forward to strike her target, dealing 20/50/80/110/140 (+1) physical damage."
"Irelia's basic attacks deal 15/30/45/60/75 true damage and doubles health restored for 6 seconds."
"Irelia pierces her target, dealing 80/130/180/230/280 (+0.5) magic damage and slowing the target by 60% for 1/1.25/1.5/1.75/2 second(s)."
3.) Spells Scale with many different things but the two most common ones are Attack Damage(Red) and Ability Power(Green). Each spell scales differently then others depending on how much of the Ap or Ad you have.
To see what the scaling is look up the champion and check out there spells.
4.) There are many different Roles here are a list of some
- A champion that works best at pushing a lane and getting towers down.
- A Champion who is usually best in the jungle. which means instead of playing in lane they level up by killing creeps in jungles and ambushing the enemy team in the lanes.
-A champion who helps other champions survive by either healing or shielding them or also by disrupting the enemy team.
- These Champions are the best at killing champions or taking a lot of there hp with a combo of there spells.
- Really a Champion who uses spells more than auto attacking
- A champion who usually does the damage for there team. The carry is usually easy to kill also making Tanks and supports there life lines.
- A champion who usually Takes the damage. The one who goes in first and out last in team fights. A champion who has the most health and defense but the lowest damage in exchange.
Fighter or what i call Bruiser
- A Champion who can take damage and dish out there own damage as well.
5.) As a player who knows how to play and has experience heres my advice.
-Dont buy any runes!(yes wait till you get to Level 30 and buy Tier 3 runes)
-Play different Champions get to know what role you like the best
-Find your best role but still play other roles it will help you understand the game.
-When playing a game figure out what items work best for your champion. Using recommended items is a good start.
-If someone on the enemy team is killing you easily then Buy Armor or Magic Resist depending on the damage they use(you can find this out by looking at the Death Recap when you die.)
-Use wards they help tell you were enemies are and when its safe to go in or stay back.
-And the last most important Rule Work with your teammates. Never argue even if there calling you out it never works out in the end. if you try and put away your differences you can still when the game! Also if you lose dont let that get you down learn from it so next time something similar happens you can overcome that challenge.
Hopefully this helps and hopefully i wrote it to were it makes sense haha. If you need to know anything else or for me to go into detail on anything let me know and il do my best to help.
