FOTM Report: New Greater Stealth Totem

11 comments

Introduction

Hi everyone, I just wanted to highlight this small but extremely important change to wards in Patch 5.3.

Greater Stealth Totem now stores up to 2 charges

This means that if you're a mid, top, or AD carry, you should be upgrading to the new totem at level 9, there's pretty much no reason not to since it only costs 250g

Benefits

  1. Costs 250g. So cheap.
  2. Recharges every 60 seconds, and you can store up to 2 at once. 
    • This means your team could have 10 wards up at a time INSTANTLY. 
      • Without buying wards. 
    • When was the last time your team had 10 wards up at once?
  3. RECHARGES - I can't stress how important this is on Baron fights, especially if you transition over from a prolonged push mid or at dragon. 

Supports

Currently, I think sightstone is still important to buy early, especially if you're a melee support. The reason for this is that it gives you good lane control and bulk early. Additionally, many teamfights can occur before level 9, and it's definitely still very good before the enemy team starts getting sweepers.

I'm still relevant :(
Ranged Supports - You may consider simply buying the regular green wards until level 9 if you're a ranged support, as you can pick up items with a bit more utility. However, you and at least one other person will definitely need to upgrade to the greater stealth totem.

Blue Trinket

I think there's still a (limited) place for blue trinket on team compositions. Personally, I think it's only useful if you've started falling behind and the enemy team has effectively taken complete control of your jungle. 

Conclusion

Buy the new Greater Stealth Totem. It's super OP right now impacts the game HARD.

  4. I think the Scrying/Farsight Orb is still better on ADs especially with the buff of the upgrade.

  5. I cannot stress enough how people aren't upgrading it. After 4 wards placed it's gold efficient and you can have up to 15 wards on the map at one time because each charge is 60 seconds.

  6. I think supports supports should still always get sightstones because god knows nobody else is going to buy a sweeper.

    Riot could give kids the chance to have unlimited wards with unlimited charges at all times and they still wouldnt go around warding
