Hey Dotafire!

With the Guide Contest deadline coming up soon, I thought it'd be a good time to offer my two cents on people's guides! Now, there's so many of them that there's no way I'd be able to read and comment on them all. So, I'll start this thread.

If you want some tips, comments, or questions on your guide(s), leave a link in the comments and I'll try to get back to you ASAP.



Cheers!

lol wow you should've zoomed in three times
Anyways, I can trust Sofa xD

Just not sure if I'll be able to join the contest now since classes already started three days ago. But I can assure an updated guide
There's a fine line between bravery and stupidity, I have come to erase that fine line.


Care to check out my guide? Click on the picture below!


Still a bit wonky and nooby but meh, give me a challenge and I'll accept it!

Hi there! Mind reviewing these two guides of mine, please? I've added a Offlaner role for the Mirana one, and since I'm not that experienced at offlaners, feedback is much appreciated.

Hey FuriousFish! These are your guide review as promised.

To Protect the Woods



Inaccuracies/mistakes
  • Builds 2-5 you're skilling your ult at level 16 - that's not possible since ult skilling levels are 6/12/18.
  • In your skills, some of the columns are slightly out of line. I recommend fixing it by placing another space in between your lines, like this:
    Code:
    [columns] [icon=Illusory Orb size=64] [nextcol][b] [/b] [nextcol][b] [/b] [nextcol][b]Type: Targets: [/b] [nextcol][b] [/b] [nextcol][b] [/b] [nextcol]Active Ground [nextcol][b] [/b] [nextcol][b] [/b] [nextcol]Puck launches a magic orb that floats in a straight path, damaging enemy units along the way. At any point, Puck may teleport to the orb's location using Ethereal Jaunt. [/columns] [rule] [center] [columns] [b]Level[/b] 1 // There's two spaces here, one here // and one here 2 // 1 // 2 3 // // 2 4 // you get the idea [nextcol][b] [/b] [nextcol][b] [/b] [nextcol] [b]Mana[/b] 80 100 120 140 [nextcol][b] [/b] [nextcol][b] [/b] [nextcol] [b]Cooldown[/b] 14 13 12 11 [nextcol][b] [/b] [nextcol][b] [/b] [nextcol] [b]Travel Range[/b] 1803 1803 1803 1803 [nextcol][b] [/b] [nextcol][b] [/b] [nextcol] [b]AoE[/b] 225 225 225 225 [nextcol][b] [/b] [nextcol][b] [/b] [nextcol] [b]Duration[/b] N/A N/A N/A N/A [nextcol][b] [/b] [nextcol][b] [/b] [nextcol] [b]Effect[/b] 70 damage, option to Ethereal Jaunt 140 damage, option to Ethereal Jaunt 210 damage, option to Ethereal Jaunt 280 damage, option to Ethereal Jaunt [/columns] [/center]
  • For the starting items, I see a pair of Boots of Speed and a pair of Power Treads... surely you can't start with Treads, can you?

Comments
  • Thanks for pointing out that her attack range is 630, I have promptly fixed it.
  • I really love the depth of info given
  • Your coding is also on fleek :)
  • There are some walls of text - which could be solved by using some colour to highlight text or some pictures to break things up

Questions
  • What did you use to code the items section? I'm assuming a columns and float?

That's all for now, I'll try to look at your other guide later tonight.
