Tossing Wards Over Ledges for Pro Placement

12 comments
Hello there! Today's post is about throwing wards over ledges to increase your maximum distance as well as the safety of placement.

The basics are this: You know that if you flash or blink over terrain, if you make it past 50% of the wall you'll go all the way through to the other side? Well the same mechanics apply to wards as well. If you click to place a ward on terrain (aka a tree) then it'll make it across to the other side of the terrain as long as it goes past the 50% mark.

Let's take a look at some possibilities! (Click Screenshots to enlarge)

Side Bush - Mid Tower

This first location is the easiest, and you can replicate it from the purple side as well. Just click where the red circle is, and you'll toss the ward over into the bush, without all the facechecking!

Baron Tri-Bush

This location is a little tougher. Make sure you try and get the maximum range when you're standing near the Baron wall, or you might derp like I did and end up throwing the ward too far to the right as shown in the picture above.


Red Buff Cover

This location is helpful if you get the feeling they're trying to invade you. Again, no facechecking needed. It's pretty easy to hit this spot since it's aligned well.

Dragon Tri-Bush

This location is the mirror of the Baron ward pictured earlier. Once again, make sure you use the maximum range on your ward placement or you might derp and it'll plop to the left as shown above.


Top Solo Side Bush

This location is nice when you're soloing top and don't feel like facechecking that bush. Again, try and use the maximum range. Smart-casting this placement makes it difficult to position.


Bot River Side Bush

The mirror image of the placement shown above, it's actually a bit harder since the angle's much closer to a parallel. Be sure to click as far as possible. If you hit the top of the lowest dark green tree it'll plop in, but if you hit too far up it'll derp like the one you see right above it.

Baron Side Bush + Mirror Near Purple Blue Buff


Thanks to KahnGage from Reddit for pointing out these two and providing a screenshot as well (Click to enlarge) ! Once again, a good solution to face-checking and giving a precious few inches to escape.

Hopefully this guide was useful to you, if you find any other awesome places, let me know :)

  6. @Mundox: Seeing that it's yet to after 2 years, doubt it. It might be intentional.
