Skillshot is one of the most important elements that could make the table turn and prevail, as long as it successfully landed enough.
Aim for the foot, not the body
That may sounds pretty insane, but the truth is, this comes from the fact that League of Legends champion’s hitbox is relating to the character’s map tangent. Whereas it is sometimes said that the champion’s body is affected by the skillshot. As a result, players are often “fooled” as they claimed that if they want to to cast the skill shots correctly, they have to target the body part; while the right place they should aim for is the foot where the “real” hit boxes are.
Sometimes you think you’re hitting the enemy with a skillshot… but you don’t
This trick is going to be very helpful when you trying to land your skillshots on your target enemy when they try to hide behind other champions or minions. As long as your enemy’s legs are exposed, you can cast skillshots on it and deal damage or threaten your opponent.
Aphelios thought that the Melee Minion would protect him from being hit by the Mystic Shot, but he still got hit by Ezreal as he was targeting Aphelios’s legs.
Ashe is standing in the center of the creeps but her leg was exposed, and as usual she still got hit
Targeting the midpoint for brain hack
Perhaps it sounds complicated, but keep it clear that if you want to use the right skillshot, target for where you think he is going and where he is. Every League champion has their own hitbox size, it’s not a small point but a box with a certain area on the map, if you want to land your skillshots, just cast the skillshot on where toy think the hitbox is.
You should target the middle of the two locations where the enemies are standing and where you think they will move to to increase the accuracy when using skills on moving targets.
When you cast the skill at where the enemy is standing, they will dodge really easily with only one turn. Alternatively, as mentioned above, aim for the midpoint, the skill would fly fast enough to still hit the champion’s hitbox in both directions, where the enemy is and where the enemy will stand. In short, this trick will double the success rate you use on moving targets with skillshot.
Aim lower when standing at low ground
Even though Riot Games has removed a lot of complicated terrain, the League of Legends map isn’t really “flat” as many people believe, there are terrain variations and low grounds, which generally are in the river area. This also affects the skill shots and makes the trajectory a bit out of normal. And there are several cases where you’re throwing your skills off the river and hoping to reach the enemy, but the outcome is slip.
The skill trajectory is also affected by the terrain
When using low ground skillshots, the recommendation is to shoot a little lower than normal.
