Neeko - General Playstyle:
Laning Phase: Neeko can poke and harass enemies with her Q and E. Use W to deceive enemies or escape ganks.
Mid Game: Look for picks with your E and follow up with your ultimate for crowd control in skirmishes.
Late Game: In team fights, try to land a multi-champion ultimate. Use your W to position or escape.
Neeko - Farming:
As a support, avoid taking minions unless you're using Relic Shield charges. Help your ADC secure last hits under the tower.
Team Fights as Neeko:
Look for opportunities to land a big ultimate. Use E to catch out key targets and W for positioning or deception.
Dragon and Baron Fights as Neeko:
Dragon: Ward around the dragon and use your E to catch out enemies. Your ultimate can be a game-changer in dragon pit fights.
Baron: Similar to dragon, but be more cautious as the stakes are higher. A well-timed ultimate can secure or steal Baron.
Neeko - Matchups:
Vel'Koz with Comet is Neeko's hardest counter. If she's in the game, especially post-6, be very cautious. Dodge her abilities and be wary of her burst potential.
Caitlyn. Both can poke early, and Caitlyn can Q over Neeko's root in a minion wave. Once Neeko has 2 points in her root, Caitlyn can follow up with her trap combo.
Neeko support offers versatility in playstyle, from poke to engage. She synergizes well with many ADCs and can be a formidable opponent in the right hands. Always adapt your build and playstyle based on the game's situation and the enemy team composition. This was Neeko’s ultimate support guide for patch.
