Ganesha is a powerful support that excels at controlling teamfights and securing objectives. As Ganesha, your primary goal is to protect your teammates while disrupting enemies. In lane, utilize Dharmic Pillars to zone opponents from the minion wave and farm. When opponents are trapped between the pillars, the ability deals substantial damage, allowing you and your carry to gain an advantage. Once team fights start, build tank items like Gauntlet of Thebes and Breastplate of Valor to survive being the center of attention. In fights, silence and reduce the damage of enemies with your ultimate, then displace key targets with Dharmic Pillars and Turn of Fate.
To master Ganesha, you must understand how to properly time and place abilities. Dharmic Pillars should be used when enemies are grouped to maximize damage and create chaos. Your ultimate requires patience – wait for at least three enemies to be in range, then place it to cut off their escape. The damage reduction and silence will allow your damage dealers to claim kills. Turn of Fate must be carefully aimed to push enemies into your Dharmic Pillars or team.
Early on, bully your lane opponents and invade with your jungler. Ganesha dominates the mid-game, so force objectives when your ultimate and relics are up. Place wards around the map to catch enemies rotating and make picks. Communicate with your team to chain crowd control and focus key targets. While Ganesha enables his team through crowd control and utility, be careful not to spam abilities, as mana costs and cooldowns are high.
With experience, you will gain insight into how to play Ganesha against any matchup. Focus on communicating with your team, learn from successes and failures, and remain positive. Ganesha is a rewarding champion, as victories revolve around empowering your allies. But this also makes him challenging, as you must rely on your team to follow up on plays you create.
Master the remover of obstacles and you will lead your team to glory. Zone opponents in lane, dominate teamfights across the map, and secure objectives to claim victory. May the light of the gods shine upon you, and guide you to success!
