Im relatively new to the MOBA genre and have always favoured a carry role, i want to learn support as there seems to be a lack of people playing this role effectively. My question is what is the best way to aquire gold without starving the carry or jungle or without falling behind in my build any advice about playing support would be welcome. Thanks.

1- Stay close enough to your carry to get gold with each minion kill
2- Jump into the jungle each time your jungler rotates close to you, to get some money from those creeps, and help out (as long as there isn't too much pressure in your lane
3- Make sure to be part of every kill possible, without taking the kill4- Be smart with vision so you don't waste all your money on maintaining it
5- Spend wisely, meaning counter-build properly by checking the enemy builds so you don't waste money on items you don't need to help support your team
A good support doesn't need a ton of money to do well, they need vision and to be in the right places at the right times and to call out good decisions.

In most MOBAs I've played, the best supports are the team captains and ultimately decide the ebb and flow of the games by the decisions they make (who to target first, when to engage, which objectives to take and when, etc.) The support role is probably one of the hardest roles to player simply because you have to keep everything in your head constantly and make all the right decisions at the right times to turn the tides!

Digipenicillin hit just about every topic perfectly. Also, unfortunately, be prepared to take a lot of the blame when you lose and none of the praise when you win. It is the curse of the support. That is why no one wants to play it. Just realize it is one of the most important jobs on the team and if you do well you can actually win the game by feeding your ADC. Most people don't realize that ADC is one of the most item dependent roles. If you can help them earn gold they can carry a game like the name implies. Good luck with your games and learning the role.

Sadly though on ML & AoV people don't really follow up the balanced team comps (meaning you could have 2ADCs 2Tanks etc.). So you'll usually have to go for heavy AP / poke / CC supports just in case there's no mage / AP Midlaner. So to answer your last question: imo no. There's no huge need for Support items unless you have a very balanced team which is rare.
