Who are the easiest ad carries?

#62 12/18/2012 4:39:27 PMWhen I first started playing LoL, I found it easiest to play both Sivir and Ashe. I felt they were suitable for a LoL newbie for the following reasons:
- Timing last hits was difficult back then when I didn't understand the pacing of animations and how quickly units would die. Both Sivir and Ashe have easy-to-aim wave clearing abilities for farming and I felt I could cast spells relatively frequently in the lane without being mana starved (Graves wasn't out yet, but I feel he would also fall under that category)
- I often misused gap closers, and would end up dashing unintentionally into a fight. As a newbie I wanted to spam cast a bunch of abilities without having to think too hard on their purpose of use as soon as a fight started. You know when a teamfight happens, you get overwhelmed and you start mashing buttons? If you waste a gap closer or dash to escape, it's a very frustrating experience.
- I wasn't trying to pull long-range clutch Ashe ults. Still, at shorter range both Ashe and Sivir's ults felt immediately impactful in a mid-late game teamfight. I felt useful, even if I didn't know exactly what I was doing yet! With Ashe, I could button mash slow people and get a stun off while attacking, and with Sivir I could boost my team and start right clicking people to kill.
As I became more accustomed to the metagame, laning dynamics, positioning, item builds and whatnot that a more seasoned player would understand, I honed more into MF and Ezreal. I think that any AD carry with situational abilities that can sometimes screw you over if you cast them at the wrong time will be more difficult for a newbie to learn as a starter.
Anyway, that's just my experience.
