Some tips for Poppy?
I bought her, and I´m learning to use her well. Someone knows some kind of tips?
I make her carry (or at least I want her to be), with AD/AP items.
Oh, and also her stun seems broken. First I thought I was the one missing the wall, but then I realized it was kind of a bug when a jax went through the wall when I stuned him



Lock in your characters and let me explain
The tale of a man who's caused so much pain
Demacia is the place he was raised
If you listen to me you'll be quite amazed
To learn why he's the king of the Rift
The enemy, they're all scared stiff
The heart of a team on mid lane pushes
The reason your foes stay out of the bushes.
The heat of a battle, Garen appears
Down the top lane runs a river of tears
A beacon of light, watch his enemies run
On his back eighteen cloaks of the sun
The lane seems clear but it's hard to say
Is he in the bushes, is he MIA?
It's team fight time, he'll lead the charge
His scarf is long his sword is large.

RE: Some tips for Poppy?
I played Poppy quite a lot in the past actually, and I personally enjoy physical DPS on Poppy with at least a Trinity force and Madred's bloodrazors for the epic devastating blow spike.
Poppy is one of the few champions that does not require a lot of health to take some blows to the face before death, which is extremely useful when building her carry like you said you wanted to do.
One of the major problems with Poppy, however is her farming... I'm still not quite sure how to get past that Achilles' heel just yet, but maybe gold per second items may counter it a little.

If I were to play her right now, for items, I'd go something like this:
Starter:
Doran's Shield/Doran's Blade/Mana Crystal + 2 Health potions

First Priority:
Mercury Threads/Boots of Swiftness (depending on situation)
Sheen

Rest:
Youmuu's Ghostblade
Trinity Force
Bloodthirster
Madred's Bloodrazor
Infinity Edge

And her stun isn't broken; it is in very few cases it bugs out actually, mostly when timed with certain other abilities such as Jax' leap strike

Not sure about AP, not a fan of it but I suppose it can be viable in some cases, with her ult empowering the effect of Deathfire Grasp and all

Anyways, that's what I have to say about this matter. I hope it has been of use somehow... Smile



I saw London, I saw France, hell I even saw Cho'gath dance.

RE: Some tips for Poppy?
Ap poppy isn't something seen often only because dumbasses don't pay attention to skills.
All of poppy's skills scale AP.
The reason why you pick trinity force is because of the sheen proc it gives.
You H a v e to use your E, which proc's sheen for double damage on normal, then you use your Q, which procs normal attack for x2 damage.

Only ultimate someone if you know you're going to kill them.
Your ultimate is a "nuke buff" for yourself, dealing twice as much damage with your Q & E, & normal attacks.
Thus why I like AP poppy, ulti, E, Q - Dead. Move onto the next.

Even though I go ap, I still do trinity force over the lichbane, not sure, but sometimes it's nice to have a balance after, she's a melee mage really.
If your Q & E don't do enough, you only got your auto attacks left till c/d.

RE: Some tips for Poppy?
I usually get Sheen first, then Berserker's Boots, then Trinity Force. By then, I just rape everything to bits.
Always charge into wall, otherwise it helps your enemy, W when chasing/running away, R on the weakest person while running or on the carry in team fights.

RE: Some tips for Poppy?
Ok, let´s go one by one haha
Grazhar: I like starting with normal boots and potion, then making sheen and zeal. After that I make berserker´s. My build is sometihing similar to
1) Zerker´s boots
2)Trinity Force
3) Bloodthirster
4) Phantom Dancer
5) Infinity Edge
6) Situational Item
(after trinity I don´t use that particular order).
Also, the thing with stuns, maybe I´m just unlucky, but I´ve had many charges that ended in a wall, and people just walked away. Also pulling people through the wall happened because of me. Jax was in the jungle, he facechecked the bush and I moved out and charged him through. Quite annoying Frown

Ridley: I´ve seen Poppy´s AP ratios, but I don´t usually like AP characters. I´m aware that "E into the wall + Q = Death" or "R + E + Q = Overkill" if you make her AP, but they still deal great damage without items. When you have Trinity with your autoattacks you can kill easily too. E + autoattack, Q + autoattack and W for chasing and having the damage bonus for the kill

Razleth: I hate being slow, that´s why almost always I start with normal boots. Of course then I rush Sheen.
I know bout the charge, I´m not going to be like a Singed that helps the other team haha. I like using W + Flash to bring back an escaping enemy back into my team.

Well, that´s it. Quite a long post. Anyway, thank you guys!

She's like Pantheon, in a way.
But better, more assassin-ey, cuter and has a funny shaped head.
And most of her abilities don't scale with AD.
But still.
