welcome to my Orianna guide, Orianna is very hard champion to play but she has some nice damage too when feeded. In mid game she is very good if you can place your ball good in team fight then just use ulti and Command: Dissonance. I like her so much because she looks so cute and creepy but she is also very fun to play :).
I hope you will enjoy my guide and dont forget to like it ! :)
Greater Seal of Replenishment
Greater Mark of Magic Penetration For some nice magic penetration
Greater Seal of Replenishment for mana reg because Orianna is very mana hungry
Greater Glyph of Scaling Ability Power for huge magic damage at lvl 18
Greater Quintessence of Ability Power for early game burst
Other valuable runes
Greater Mark of Ability Power for better damage early game
Greater Seal of Scaling Mana Regeneration for mana reg too
Greater Glyph of Magic Resist for survibality on mid
Greater Quintessence of Health for more survibality
Those are your summoner spells. I prefer those 2.
Flash To chase someone or run away trought walls
Ignite Nice to decrease healing or kill securing thing
Another Good summoner spell choices
Clarity I am not big fan if this summoner spell i never used no joke guys but if u are new to game and cannot control your mana good you should take it
Exhaust Not too good on Orianna like Ignite but if you are playing normal and ad carry is on mid u should take it to lower his damage in
Teleport Good for ganking or moving near team fights or if you need to get back to your lane fast
Ghost I dont prefer this summoner spell because Orianna have already speed boost from Command: Dissonance
Pros / Cons
Nice damage | Nice damage
Can easily kill turret hugging enemy | Very hard champion
Nice Farming | Requires good farm
Very good mid game | Not as good at late game
Can nicely own when she get fed | Requires good jungler :D
Extreme fun to play | Very Mana hungry
Orianna is very good farmer and one of the easiest champions to farm with u can easily have farm like 200 at lvl 13 or at 25 mins what is very good and requires a lot of training.
In next steps i will explain how to farm in each of times
Early Game (laning phase)
Farming until level about 10 is auto-attacking. Orianna can farm early game quite well because of her passive Clockwork Windup which provides nice auto-attack damage from your ability power.
Mid and Late Game(after one of towers got destroy or when you and your team start to group)
These is your mid game and late game farming combo. Use your Command: Attack and Command: Dissonance at caster minions then use Command: Protect to get your ball back and damage other minions then just auto-attack them or u can you your Command: Attack and Command: Dissonance but i think its useless
This chapter will explain what you should you if get Ganked by enemy team,your jungler ganks or if you gank any line
if you get ganked:
You must ascertain that you have your ball with you so you can use your speed boost from Command: Dissonance. So you must use Command: Protect to get your ball back or just shield yourself from incoming damage. Then use Command: Dissonance but if you are afraid because enemy jungler very near to you and you are about to die then just Flash out.
PRO TIPS AND TRICKS When you dont need to use your Command: Attack to farm or harass you should send your ball to bush and provide you a vision
When your jungler ganks
Orianna have nice synergy with most of the junglers like Diana, Warwick, Shaco, Malphite or anyone who can just jump in but especially with fiddlestick. Their combo Crowstorm and Command: Shockwave is simply legendary.
When jungler gank u need to use your Command: Protect on your jungler and when you are afraid to go in because you are low then just watch and use your Command: Dissonance to speed up your jungler to easier chase your opponent or use it when he is near enemy to provide slow + speed boost + some nice damage when enemy is again to survive use your ultimate which is pretty good for junglers
Ganking other lines
Ganking top is simply just do the same with your solo topper as with your jungler
Is good when you have melee support as Alistar or Blitzcrank or Nunu because you can use the same as on the jungler and topper. But when you gank try to gank with your jungler too because then you can easy turret dive 4v2 and get easy double kill to your ad carry or for you :)
1. Item - you must pick Boots of Speed and 3 health potions for better dodging spells or running away when you are low and the potions... u need them to survive longer on line
2. Item - double Doran's Ring brought by almost all midders - provides nice mana regen
3. Item - Chalice of Harmony - mana reg + magic resist u can buy it before dorans if you are facing champion who does a lot of damage like LeBlanc from Chalice then build Athene's Unholy Grail what does nice mana regen
4. Item - buy Needlessly Large Rod and from it build Rabadon's Deathcap
5. Item - Sorcerer's Shoes you shoul build it anytime but i recommend to buy it after purchasing Athene's Unholy Grail or if you are doing good (you have like 5/0 and nice farm) you should first buy Needlessly Large Rod and then boots
6. Item - Lich Bane is very good item on Orianna because when your Lich Bane is on you can
do about 700 damage with your auto-attack
7. Item - Void Staff Pretty good item for magic penetration you must have some magic penetration against tanks
Last Item - Guardian Angel Nice Item for Ap and AD carrys if you do all damage in team fight and enemy focus you. You should buy it earlier. It cause enemy team to change focus while you resurrect and you can nicely trick enemy team with my ezreal i flashed with e througth the wall to red buff when i was focused and i already died but guardian respawned me
near red buff and i ran away without anyone seeing me then we lost. :(
Another cool Items for Orianna
Rod of Ages - u should built this item instead of Void Staff when you are playing normals and enemy does not built magic resist
Archangel's Staff - Nice mana very much Ap but i am not very big fan of this
Deathfire Grasp - Ap + nice Unique Passive which does lots of damage
Zhonya's Hourglass - Good item too gives AP and armor agains enemy team's ad carry and nice unique passive too u can built this instead of Guardian Angel if you are not getting focused
Thornmail - Enemy team's ad carry got 25 kills? and you dont wanna lose? Let's build it and focus him more
Mejai's Soulstealer - Dont prefer this item on Orianna. Dont built it. Dont ask. Just dont
Rylai's Crystal Scepter - Does slow pretty good, Ap and some utility but useless on Orianna... all her abilities are multitarget and she already have a slow
Quicksilver Sash - u should built to not die on ignite or Darius's Hemorrhage
Will of the Ancients - Not good on Orianna i dont know why but i dont like it
