How to play Nami


Nami is an enchanter Support Champion. She has great crowd control and excels at healing and buffing your team to help keep them alive. She has a pretty strong laning phase you just need to be careful if the enemy engages onto you because you do not have a lot of health and can die quickly. The later the game goes the better Nami gets. Her heals become even stronger and you can do a lot more to keep your team alive with her Tidal Wave (Ultimate) and her other abilities to lock down the enemies.

Nami does best with support items that give her heals more power. With that in mind, Ardent Censer is the go-to and must-buy on Nami. Not only do you get a bit of health and ability power but you also get a really strong passive. When you heal an ally they gain bonus attack speed and deal more damage. This is great with Nami's Ebb and Flow (2nd Ability) as it can bounce to multiple allies giving multiple allies the buff. Another core item is Harmonic Echo. This gives you much-needed mana and a little bit of extra ability power. But again the main reason is for the passive. Moving and casting abilities build Harmony stacks. At max stacks, your next heal on an ally will also get another heal from the item. So even more ways to keep your team alive.


With runes, we have the following:

Aery

This gives Nami's heal an extra shield and also allows you to deal that little bit extra damage which is nice for early game trades in the laning phase.

Weakness

Nami has plenty of abilities that immobilize the enemy so your team can follow up and deal 5% more damage to that enemy.

Loyalty

As a support champion your main job is to keep your team alive and loyalty is a great rune that can help!

Manaflow Band

With Ebb and Flow (2nd ability) being an easy point and click spell to hit the enemies it's really easy to get stack on this rune to gain more mana which helps a lot as the game goes on.

Flash
Heal

For summoner spells, Flash is a must on most champions. It's a great spell to get you out of a bad situation or allows you to flash and save your ally or even maybe get a kill. Heal works really well as a 2nd summoner spell choice if your AD Carry takes barrier however if your bot lane duo (AD Carry) also takes heal it is really bad for you to also go heal because you don't get the full effect. If this happens then change heal to Ignite to help kill the enemies.

Early Game


Nami does ok in the early game, you can poke the enemy with Edd and Flow (2nd Ability) and it can bounce back to you and heal you at the same time. You can heal your AD carry if they are low on HP so you can survive and stay in lane longer. You can always look for an Aqua Prison (1st Ability) bubble on the enemy and if you land it you can follow up with your AD to do a lot of damage to the enemy. You have to be very careful when stepping forward as if you get caught out and engaged on you can die very quickly.

Late Game


The later the game goes the stronger Nami gets as her shields and heals get stronger with more items. You can use your Tidal Wave (Ultimate) to engage on the enemies but make sure you always stay back and heal your team. It is really important as a support that you stay with your team and help them during team fights. Prioritize staying back and keeping your carries alive protecting them against the enemy team using everything possible to keep them alive. The AD Carry in your team is one of the main damage sources and keeping he/her alive is really important! 

Conclusion


Nami is quite an easy champion to play but does have some skill shots that you need to practice to utilize them best! She is great at keeping your team alive and can pressure a lot in the laning phase to give your Dragon Lane partner a lot of breathing space.
