Quick question: I know now that, if I'm supporting an ADC in bot, I should avoid farming any minions. But even when I just stand there, it looks as if my auto-attack is going off without any input from me, and sometimes I'm getting last hits. The only way to avoid this is to constantly click on unoccupied bits of map and run around in circles, which is pretty hard and destroys my map awareness. Should I be doing this, or are occasional auto attack kills ok, or is there some way of turning auto attacking off?
But really It all depends on your situation. When your Bot bush is warded which you can tell by if Minons or their Attacks are targeting you ( Not SkillShots ) You want to get out of that bush because there is no point of you standing there and being useless. Move around a bit mostly but near your ADC so in case a skill shot is launched you'll be able to jump in and take the damage protecting your ADC. When it comes to you getting CS ( Creep Score ) you want to get CS only when your ADC is not around, Pushing the lane by yourself, and getting rid of the minion wave at your tower ( which I still don't really recommend to do when your adc is around ) Damaging minions is completely Alright but taking the CS from a ADC is not.
As for map awareness it shouldn't affect anything, maybe failure to ward properly is what affecting you but if you can't be aware of the map while on the move then practice more moving around and paying attention to the map at the same time. Like I said before Map awareness is a skill you must learn on your own.
I recommend using NUNU support right now if you want to practice what I said because Nunu has his W which gives insane attack speed and movement speed to you and your target ally, Highly good for mobility and ADCs like Catilyn, Varus, and Vyane. Nunu is pretty tanky and can absorb hits like a boss when he is hurt you can use his Q on a enemy Minion to heal up which is pretty insane and annoying when your against a NUNU because if their smart they will take all the damage for their ADC and heal afterwards, some may even zone you out from EXP/Gold by so much harassment.
What to do Recommendations summary
-Try Nunu Support
-Protect your ADC by taking all the hits for them
-Take a certain amount of CS when healing from your damage
-Move around While paying attention to your lane and your map
-Manage your mana when using Nunu's W (Blood Boil Buff) and Q (consume)
