    wards and winning and you!

    Why bother with wards ?

    200 gold for 2x Sight wards or 2x Revelation .
    Ward of Sight Ward of Revelation

    A small price to pay for Map control which….. ultimately leads to winning games.
    Where do i put wards?

    ward locations

    The Teal circles represent ward Locations.



    The General idea is to cover Rune locations + Jungling spots + Choke points

    Early to mid game you obviously want rune control.
    Mid to Late game once towers have been pushed you want to start warding the jungling spots.

    When warding allways try and place the ward on the highest cliff possible, greater AOE sight is given the higher the ward:

    I can counter enemy wards ?

    Ward of revelation not only reveals stealthed enemy units it also reveals enemy wards.
    Place revelation wards at the common ward locations, then destroy any wards it reveals.

    WTF, I’m not buying wards I’m the carry!

    Who buys the wards ? The support hero buys wards, also known as the “support bitch”

    These heroes include the likes of, Hellbringer Glacius Tempest . Support heroes are mainly intelligence heroes with little roles.

    Don’t worry if your team has no support heroes, anybody can buy wards, just make sure your carry gets farmed.
    To sum it up

    * Remember to always have sight over important ganking areas
    * Use Revelation wards to counter enemies Sight wards
    * Place wards on the highest part of the terrain
    * Dedicate one person , usually the support heroes to do the warding.
    * You can block enemy neutral camps by placing a ward where the creeps would spawn

    I disagree with this immensely.
    Intelligence heroes with little roles? You just named 3 very key heroes. Glacius not as much, but the sooner he gets his portal key, the better(especially since he SHOULD be babysitting a carry and helping them farm). Tempest will be jungling, so should get wards for his safety and to help out. No issue there, especially since he'll be rolling in cash. Hellbringer has more need for gold then to waste it on wards. Especially since he's the only hard-counter to tempest, and his ult, combined with refresher, is devastating in teamfights. In fact, all 3 are very solid initiators and until the carry is fed enough to do some damage, will most likely be doing the most work early on.

    Heroes that SHOULD buy wards would be heroes that have low item dependency. Seeing as how the best items won't make much of a difference on them anyways(Late game Andro will die if their carry decides she'll die), they'll have plenty of gold to toss around on couriers, wards, etc, early on to help them gank. As most of these heroes are very good at ganking early on (And most come late game become easy kills for a carry).

    Slither is a hero that should definitely be getting wards constantly. He's a hero that should be constantly ganking so the wards will be most useful there.
    Andromeda for SURE needs to be warding. Early game she's powerful, and to be honest, items aren't gonna help her much. Come late game, she's fodder.
    Pollywog is a another good wardhoe.
    Ophelia, no question there. Especially since you'll be spending all your time in jungles.
    Pyro, Witchslayer, also good with ganks, and should be warding.
    Shaman, Succubus and Jereziah.
    Wards should still be used if you have Keeper, but late in the game (as long as they're placed right) his eyes should be EVERYWHERE.

    All heroes not listed either have babysitter roles, nuker roles, initiator roles, or rely too heavily on items to waste money.
    Only the insane have the strength enough to prosper. Only those who prosper may truly judge what is sane.
