  1. Yordle Sorcerers build takes forever to build. Three seperate times it failed really bad. Need more recommendations on items please. Also, Tanks are shaky at best. Garen is good but you waste all your stuff to get him when everyone else plays him now that he is considered Amazing.

    1. Keep in mind that you really have to roll with the punches. While these are ideal builds, sometimes RNG just won’t let you force them.
