Playing as Orianna and Viktor, I've noticed I auto-attack quite a lot as part of my harass. With Viktor, it's Q and then zap them a few times.
With Orianna, I just do it after getting poked thanks, because it's the only way I can keep even with my opponent after they poke me with their superior range. Or I AA the opponent whenever I get a chance to, fingers on my E.
For both champions, I use the same masteries, namely 9/21/0.
In my offensive mastery I get 1-improved Summoner spells, 1 AP mastery, 2 damage to minion masteries, then the 4 CD masteries and the 10% Mpen mastery.
But I've been thinking of changing my mastery around, removing one AP and the two points of damage to minion mastery and investing all three points into AD(+3 AD total).
So my question is...does that bit of AP(1-3) mean all that much to an AP mage?
What's better for Orianna and Viktor?
1 AP and 4 extra damage to minions?
3 AD? (which means 3 extra damage to minions right? With 3 extra damage to the enemy AP for my AA)
