Questions on Keeping/Giving Away Blue

  • Some situation I encounter.

    Situation 1:
    Mid picks Katarina (or some other manaless champ)
    I pick Amumu jungle (or some other mana hungry champ)
    Is it acceptable for me to take the 2nd blue?

    Situation 2:
    Mid is doing poorly/feeding
    Is it acceptable for me to take the 2nd blue?

    Situation 3
    I'm behind in jungle
    Is it acceptable for me to take the 2nd blue?

    IMO:

    1. Jungler gets blue (can give to top-laner or ADC later)

    2. Really depends. Some matchups are blue-dependent and he's going to do worse without it. Use your judgment to figure out if the other mid can just 1v1 him to kill and steal it. If not, and there are wards to cover jungle ganks, he's fine.

    3. I don't think it helps you that much. You'll have Spirit Stone or Madred's by now 100%. I would still give it over to mid.
