What are you guys spending your IP points on?

For a new player I would find a champ you really like and build a rune page for them. After you hit 30 and have a full rune page, start playing champs that also work with that rune page other than your favourite. Start adding rune pages first and then add champions for those pages. I have been playing for 3 years now and I have 5 rune pages and like 70 champs.

I'm not sure which runes to get. The bonuses seem so small!

I used to play this I can't remember what type of toon I built but one of the reasons I stopped was because of the gear sucked at the time and the people that forked out Hundred s of dollars had great gear and people like myself that really didn't want to fork out that kind of money well we lost allot of places that we held . if it was possible to make that kind of gear the game would be good but it seemed at that time more pay to play.

That's a negative. Runes are only available using the earned in-game IP. You quit the game for some other reason. Probably because you sucked :P - I kid, but it IS still a heavily skill based game. The runes and such help, but skill and knowledge of the opponent is going to help you more.

That being said, you can get more IP with boosts that offer double the IP at the end of a game, but you still have to do well / win games to climb the ladder.


Real money can only be spent on unlocking champions and skins, directly

I bought some increased attack speed runes for 30 IP each.
In total I think I have ~3% increased attack speed. I'm not sure I even notice :D
I guess it'll get better when I level up and unlock more rune spots.

Hehe well I am not sure if I sucked ... to badly hehe but I did learn a couple of tricks when they did the weekend competition thing. I like most of the game except for the people being about to buy the good things and other people using multiple accounts to mine or farm for things build or make the good stuff then selling them to people that can afford it that takes allot of things away from the game and makes it unfair to most other people. In D2LOD it is different becasue it isn't a terriorial game but league of legends is mostly terrioriral lol. I probably will try it again most llikely will have to start from scratch since I am not sure if I even remember my account
