Warding if you play Mid-Lane
Warding Entrance to Ancient Blue Golem (Purple Side and Blue Side)
Sometimes enemy teams will continually ward with a pink ward right in front of dragon or in the dragon pit. If this is done, then you can use a green ward on the entrance to blue golem (avoiding it from being killed - becuase it is out of range). The extended vision will allow you to see if the enemy team is doing dragon. The entrance to the blue golem area for mid lane can assist the top lane from incoming ganks.
Warding Entrance to Wraiths (Purple Side and Blue Side)
This area is one of the most popular warded spots in the game, by both teams. The more I play support the more I realize it is better to ward this area with a pink ward instead of a green ward (probably more in competitive play than solo queue). In competitive play it is just more likely that there is going to be a ward there. This spot provides the most vision for both mid and bot lanes to know if the jungler is going into the river area. The same holds true for the pruple side entrance to wraiths. This will allow your team vision if the enemy team has a strong counter jungling jungler. If this is the case ; you will often see teams ward this location at level 1 to prevent counter jungling by the enemy team (assuming you are pruple side).
Warding Side Brush (Baron Side)
This is a popular spot to ward if you are playing the mid lane because it allows you vision to both invasion to your wraiths (if your purple) and ganking from the river mid brush. This is often a highly contested brush during mid and late game when Baron objectives are trying to be met. It is common you will see in competitive play that this brush is pink warded instead of green warded for the likely case there is a ward by the enemy team in this location.
Warding Side Brush (Dragon Side)
This area, and even higher up on the curve than shown on this (closer to the trees around golem) are often used to have vision before the Dragon Objective is taken. You MUST assume that the enemy team has this warded in almost all cases before doing dragon. It is VERY common you will see competitive teams use a pink ward in this spot because of how often is is used.
