Buff support are making a big comeback in the current meta after a period of disappearance in the face of the dominance of aggressive combat supports like Thresh, Sett, and Braum.
However, these low base health champions are quite limited and still have trouble choosing the right gem. One of the player’s favorites is Summon Aery and Guardians, but not everyone knows when to choose them. And the article below will help you to solve that problem.
USING SUMMON AVEY FOR BUFF SUPPORT
Most players Janna, Lulu, Soraka, or Nami often choose Summon Aery as the main branch of their Buff Support. Aery gives the champions above the ability to deal more damage and increase a large number of shields or health regen. Of course, this buff gives you a lot more useful than the stats it gives you.
However, when you have a tough match and get attacked frequently by your opponent in Buff Support, this gem will not provide much protection and you will most likely fall behind your opponent. In those situations, Guardians seem to be more useful because the amount of shield it gives will help you significantly reduce the damage of the enemy, avoiding somewhat of the chance to lie down or simply have more advantage in exchanging moves. The amount of virtual armor that Guardian can bring at early levels is an extremely impressive number and it will somewhat reduce the pressure of powerful attacking support cards like Bliztcrank or Leona.
USING SUMMON AVEY FOR GUARDIAN
In most cases of Buff Support, you should choose Summon Aery instead of Guardian unless you’re having a tough match and the amount of pressure the opponent is putting on you is too great. Another reason why you need to choose Guardians is that when your opponent locks on Assassins or champions that are able to close in, the amount of virtual armor obtained from the Guardian will increase you the ability to protect the gunner or the original. body in teamfights. When you use Guardians, you won’t get Aery’s attack stats, but in return, it protects you in the right situations.
If you are not familiar with the champion you are using, you should also choose the Guardian. You need to consider the pros and cons of each type to get the right choice in specific matches. In short, if you play in the direction of attack, do not hesitate to choose Summon Aery to create huge pressure for opponents during Buff Support. If you are someone who wants to play safely and wants to protect the gunner and yourself in the best way, then Guardian will be the better option.
Summoning Aery almost always goes hand in hand with the Blade of Spellthief because of the money it brings from its prowling ability. When you wear a Guardian in Buff Support, you should buy Antiquarian Shield when it gives you a significant amount of health when killing minions when stacking on you. However, do not be too stereotypical in your way of dressing. Being pressured by the problem of grafting to your opponent to have money when using the Sword of the Sword will sometimes put yourself in danger and Antiquarian Shield is not a bad choice for champions with Summons Aery. The fact is, in rankings or professional competitions, people still prefer to buy Antiquarian Shields for buffs because of the benefits it provides.
