Taking baron is usually a sure-fire way of securing the win for your team. In this episode, sOAZ explains how to think and play around baron. Before entering the Baron pit, consider your team composition and try to estimate how fast you can take it. Champions that build items like Guinsoo’s Rageblade or have spells that do percentage damage can do baron very fast. It is an excellent idea to do baron after you get some kills on the enemy team, but if you have a high damage composition, you can look to do it if you have a strong vision of the opposing team and if they are split up.
