Passive - Iron Ambassador: Every few seconds, Poppy can throw her buckler for a ranged attack, dealing bonus damage. If it kills the target, it returns to her. Otherwise, it drops and can be picked up for a shield.

Q - Hammer Shock: Poppy smashes the ground, dealing damage and slowing enemies. The area then explodes for additional damage.

W - Steadfast Presence: Provides passive resistances and can be activated to stop enemy dashes and deal damage.

E - Heroic Charge: Charges at an enemy, dealing damage. If they hit a wall, they are stunned.

R - Keeper's Verdict: Channels to knock enemies far away.

- Level 1: Q

- Level 2: E

- Level 3: W

- Max Order: Q -> E -> W

- Take a point in your R (ultimate) whenever possible (levels 6, 11, and 16).

Poppy General Playstyle:

Poppy Laning Phase:

Use your passive for poke and your E for engage, especially if you can pin an enemy to a wall. Protect your ADC and look for opportunities to engage.

- Mid Game: Roam to help other lanes and secure objectives. Use your W to disrupt enemy dashes during skirmishes.

Poppy Late Game:

Peel for your ADC and use your R to disengage or isolate key targets in teamfights.

Poppy Teamfighting:

- Engage with E, especially if you can pin a key target to a wall.

- Use W to prevent enemy dashes and disrupt their engage.

- Use R to either peel for your ADC or to remove a key enemy from the fight.

Poppy around Objectives:

Dragon & Baron: Use your W to prevent enemies from dashing into the pit. Use your R to knock away enemies trying to steal.

Poppy Matchups:

 Bad Matchup: Morgana (Her Q and E can disrupt your engage. Play safe or consider banning her.)

Good Synergy: Kai'Sa (Your E and R set up her combo effectively.)

Additional Advice on how to play Poppy Support:

Poppy support might seem unconventional, but her tankiness and CC-heavy kit make her a formidable support. Always look for wall pins with your E and remember to use your W to disrupt enemy dashes. Your R can be a game-changer in teamfights, so use it wisely.

Now go forth, my guardian jesters, and let your enemies experience the might of a guide that's as unyielding as Poppy's determination and as unforgettable as the earth-shattering impact of her keeper's verdict – truly a finale worth witnessing! It’s Hammer time with the Poppy Support Guide.
