As I'm originally an ADC main, warding spots have never been too important for me. But as I play fasting Senna more often, I also gotta get into warding. So I watched a guide from Swedish pro player Treatz and wanted to share his best warding spots with you.
Warding is essential in League of Legends. Gaining vision on enemy champions simplifies decision-making.
Consider this: how often have you died to an unexpected gank because you didn't ward? I bet it's a lot.
It's a good idea to experiment with the following ward placements in the practice tool first. While some can be challenging to get right, as Treatz emphasized, they're among the best wards in the game and are invaluable to master.
Where to Ward on Blue Side
This ward offers a strategic view of the enemy jungler when they're at Gromp. Plus, it remains undetected by a Blue Buff Brush Pinkward.
This ward can be a bit tricky to position correctly. It's meant to keep an eye on the red side bot tri brush when you're pushing the tower. Champions like Jarvan, Fiddlesticks, and Rek'Sai, for example, often use this route for ganks.
For accurate placement, align your character between the two subtle dark grey notches visible in the center of the image, standing as close to the wall as possible.
For the next step, click between the two bottom small green rocks. Given its precision, practicing this placement in the tool is beneficial.
This ward requires exactness. You need to click right where the cursor is shown in the image and stand very close to the wall. It gives a view of the red top side tri brush from the baron pit, eliminating the need for risky face-checks.
This particular ward is perfect for scouting the adjacent red jungle brush from the baron pit without directly checking. When your cursor lights up green, slightly shift it closer to your champion, following the guidance provided in the image.
This ward is designed to survey your own jungle, helping to deter potential dives. It's essential to position your cursor exactly as shown in the image.
This ward proves efficient for tracking jungler movements in the early stages of a match.
This strategic ward placement ensures you can view the river brush without the risk of bumping into an unexpected jungler.
Where to Ward When You're on the Red Side
This ward captures the movement of junglers transitioning into the blue side tri brush, or heading to the drake or mid lane. Conveniently, this ward can be placed from the drake pit.
This is the famed "Scarra Ward." Yes, referencing the Twitch Streamer Scarra. Formerly a professional player, there's a memorable clip of him attempting to ward this brush but failing twice.
The key is not to click directly into the brush. Instead, click between the trees on the rock. This method allows you to ward the blue tri brush without needing to face-check it directly.
This ward evades detection by pink wards in the raptor brush or the drake brush. It's adept at revealing the enemy jungler's route.
