I'm so pumped on life about a new support. She looks fantastic, one of the more fun supports to play for sure! An active support that doesn't just threaten (Taric) or faceroll (Sona, Soraka) is very welcome in my book.

Karma rework soon too. My break from Uni will be a good one.

AoE stun on Mantra shield. <3

I'm not a support person, like at all. But in PBE today my entire team autolocked so I had to go support, and so I tried Nami. Omg, I love her, she'll probably be the support I use.

Nami looked pretty OP glancing at her abilities, but I think she's pretty balanced.

Loving her to death though, possibly my new main with Karma now. Excited to see how she turns out in the long run.

Aqua Prison is extremely powerful. I take a point in it at level 1 and leave it to max it last as it's there for its stun, not the damage.

Ebb and Flow is a really well designed ability. It counter harasses and eases trading pressure from the adc. When in combat situations, the blend of heals and damage are really helpful in lane and in teamfights. I've been taking Ebb and flow at level 2 and maxing it first.

Tidecaller's Blessing is a much better ability than I initially thought. It's a fantastic trading ability that gives anyone lucky enough to have it a serious edge in trades. The slow, in my opinion is more helpful than the bonus damage, given when it is applied it makes it easier for Nami to land her stun, which is really important you don't miss. Given I play Ziggs and Galio as my main mids, I've gotten used to their skillshot AoE spells, so I'm not having a hard time getting used to it, haha.

The there's the ult. The ult. I love it. So much. Tidal Wave sets up ganks, initiates, disengages,it does everything. It's range looks a little OP, but the rate at which it travels is a pretty good balance. It takes some time to get used to its speed and set up though.

Honestly, love the champ so much I may go out and get her skin here pretty quick.

If her Q wasn't so delayed she'd be a terror and I'd take her mid.

However anyone decent can dodge it from a distance, and even if you lead with the AA slow bonus.

Was hoping she was going to be another Lulu. Oh well. Still fun.

I love her, don't like her skin, and I really need to stop derping around with her and actually start playing her as a support ... I'm still trying to decide on which skill to get at level 1, because unless they've got an aggressive lane that you can punish, poking with ebb and flow is both: a) more efficient and b) has a higher trade rate, due to you gaining health and costing them some. Her AP scalings are currently pre-nerf Lulu like, so she is borderline to OP. Her actual design is perfect, but for a ranged support she's incredibly bursty. Her cc is balanced and fun, problem is, Nami Draven is just too powerful as a lane. They were turret diving me as Lulu at level 3. Something that really shouldn't be able to happen pre 6 at least imo. But anyway, Nami, Janna and Lulu are so much fun, have so much utility, and the last two are kinda underrated. Each of them have a way of keeping their idiot ad carry healthy (2 have shields, nami has a heal), each have a steroid to their ad carries' battle stats, each have a great disengage in lane and each have a multi-target Q that is great for aggression. OH and that reminds me, her mana costs are a bit low considering Janna's ult is much more expensive than Nami's, yet it only provides a knockback and a 'heal' meanwhile Nami's provides a knock up and large slow with a nasty kick of damage with it. I'd say it needs to be increased to 150/225/300. But anyway, Nami, she's mine kay?

Nami has a much higher skill ceiling than I anticipated.

ShadowCrystallux I love her too ;-; Sharing is caring you know.

I really like getting the ebb and flow level one, because you can attack them and heal yourself. So if they hit you with an autoattack or some other attack at level one, you virtually heal it off while they take the damage from ebb and flow.

I take Q at level 1, max it last.

My skill priority is R>W>E>Q, but I'm thinking I may start levelling Q instead of E.

Yeah I level Q instead of E, I find level the E is good enough at level one.

You should only ever max Q first/second if you're in mid. The cc on it does not scale like Lulu's, hence making it pointless to level up more than once prior level 8 at least. I currently cannot resist the urge to level Q>W second, although as a support, you should be sacrificing these urges. I will do it . Someday. Maxing E first does make you rather mana hungry, but it makes you actually able to trade yourself in lane. Landing Q is a nightmare in the first place and it feels hardly rewarding when you can deal damage and heal off damage with E. But whatever you do with her, she's a lane bully, and she's meant to be played to constantly harass and irritate the enemy. She is extraordinarily annoying to face if played well.

Maybe he wants it for that reduced cd?

I know dick about this champ and will probably never touch her since she interests me about as much as bread sandwich seasoned with syphilis-tipped nails.

Q at lvl 1. Max W first if you are losing lane or it's neutral, E if you are winning. That's what I do anyways. Her passive is also one of my favorite things ever. It's one of those things you don't notice how useful it is but gosh darn is it ever. :3

Her passive shines brightest when she ults.

Nami's Q was really frustrating to land at first, but it has gotten significantly easier since I've been playing her more.

I'm starting to find her E to be a little underwhelming though. Compared to the glory that is Aqua Prison, Ebb and Flow and Tidal Wave, Tidecaller's blessing doesn't seem to be enough. Maybe I'm not abusing it enough.
