An absolutely incredible guide. Read through all of it, did a few normal matches as Elise, then took the newfound skills into ranked. Haven't lost a game with Elise yet. I can tell who I'm going to main once Season 4 begins.

Thanks for the guide, it really helped me out a TON.

I had to read one guide after playing Elise so much lately (half-time sober, lol). Nice work, I'd like to present a few thoughts and questions (sorry for any possible grammarish mistakes).

They took away her free armor/MR buffs, but she's far from weak. This only hurt her early game, she's still just as strong if built bruiser-ish, mid-late game. Still, lane Elise is better imho, since there she gets ti fully bully with her strong harass and zoning, on top of greater gold gain = stronger build.

I don't actually think that Elise has much mana problems. If you don't spam your human form spells too often, and buy a doran's ring or two, you won't have to watch your mana much. I have to say still, Iceborn is a strong pick for her, but she isn't really THE type of champion to fully utilize it to the fullest potential.

Similar to Valdimere's Hemoplague, you can't dodge Zed's mark damage, aye? But you can dodge Fizz's Chum the Waters damage, nay?

Lastly, you could fix a few patches of info to your guide, e.g. the lowered mana cost of her E, ultimate changes and Skittering Frenzy's ratio change.

I really liked your guide but i use these masteries and get better results with it because elise can deal a decent ad damage too and i dont really need that 6 ap from "mental force"

The new description of the passive on Liandry's Torment initially confused me, but they didn't actually nerf its damage to only 2%. In reality, it actually deals 2% per second for 3 seconds, so you still get 6%. So yes, to answer your question, it is still viable.

Imo, Iceborn Gauntlet can be viable on Elise, but to take full advantage of its passive and justify its purchase you have to deviate slightly from the standard Elise build into more of a hybrid one.

does Elise jungle and top still work with the newest patch that removes her spider form defenses?


With the newest patch, Elises playstyle changes a little though certainly not dramatically. Though Spider Form / Human Form no longer confers any defence benefits, you can heal back more health thanks to the minor buff to Skittering Frenzy. You'll have to be more careful now when you go all in, but you'll have slightly more sustain now to compensate for that.

Really disagreeing on few points.

First of all:

1) Always start off with Q. Your stun is next to nothing early levels on lane. Rather take poke than very unsure stun.

2) You don't realy even need the early linadrys torment to do damage. Haunting guise alone is perfect. This leads to me your full support build, even if you are full support, you still want to take that haunting guise for it's ridicilouse damage. I'd also question the Mikael's item. Aegis > Mikael's

3) Early core Philosophers AND kage's ? I'm sure 1 gold per10 is enough.

4) Top lane build, you mention abyssal scepter, but yet don't suggest it at full build ?

5) AP support, no magic penetration from offensive tree ?

I cant upvote this.


I fixed most of the problems you pointed out. I don't have a lot of support experience, so I'm sorry if my support builds seemed suboptimal :P

The reason I didn't have Abyssal Scepter in the full top lane build is because late game, I usually tend to sell it for a Void Staff, but I implemented it none-the-less.

hey :)
I really like elise and your guide for elise (even though I only play her on top lane :D), but I got a serious problem with farming in early game :(
It just takes ages to hit an target after you told elise to attack it and you deal like no dmg ... never seen so less dmg to minions in my life :/
Any tips ? :)
-NewThunderstorm


To farm minions early game, you pretty much have to do what you do with any champion; last hit. If you need additional help with doing so though, transform into Spider Form / Human Form, since this provides you with some bonus damage on your auto-attacks and you can spam Venomous Bite to kill low health minions. The only problems with this though is that having to resort to melee range attacks makes you more vulnerable to harass from your opponent, and your Spider Swarm has a tendency to push your lane if left unattended.

Thanks for the time you put in it, the community appreciates it very much.


After some experimenting, I came up with what I find to be a pretty effective build for a support Elise, and I've included both a traditional and aggressive support build plus a support laning section into my guide. If you have any ideas for better items or further tips for laning, I'd greatly appreciate it if you'd share them with me.

I love this guide.

Got two questions for you:

1. Items : Would you consider using Sunfire Cape and Spirit Visage ? I usually buy them -depending on the need- after Sorcerer's boots and Liandry's Torment and by then the game is almost always over (Enemy surrenders).

2. About hard lanes, you mentioned Talon and Fizz, i personally found them not much of a threat. Maybe i got lucky or they were terribad, but you might wanna reconsider your judgement.


I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed my guide! Personally, I'd get Sunfire Cape if the situation called for it, like when facing someone who relies on getting close and staying close to you, or when my team isn't very tanky. As for Spirit Visage, I've never actually tried it personally, though I'll definitely try it out.

I dlike to mention what none of the Elise guides do.... 1: Volatile spider will also leap at the target of infections bite... not sure when or how to make that effective but u can still fling it. 2:Time repel well enough and u can follow champs anywhere, it's slot easier than it sounds... ive followed an ulting TF and a jarvan flagtoss over terrain just to name a couple.

Arunshin | March 14, 2013 11:40pm
Have a couple of additions/corrections you might wanna add

- Volatile Spiderling jumps to the target of Venomous Bite provided that there's no minions blocking the path. It can somewhat be used to ensure Volatie Spiderling hits.
- Under Lux you stated:

Quoted:
so if you can dodge her Light Binding and/or Prismatic Barrier you will win most of the trades.


Prismatic Barrier however does no damage whatsoever. I think you meant her other skill

- Under Talon you stated:

Quoted:
try to rush an early Chain Vest because it will offer a brief reprieve from him and can be built into Zhonya's Hourglass.


Zhonya's recipe has changed. Might want to update that in casey ou missed it.

- I don't see a Diana in the mid-lane match ups. Should probably include her.

terrible guide. not tanky enough. One stun by another champ and your dead


Ya, I guess that the health from Rylai's Crystal Scepter and Liandry's Torment plus magic resist from Abyssal Scepter or Banshee's Veil, and armor from Iceborn Gauntlet, Zhonya's Hourglass, and Frozen Heart just don't provide enough tanky stats for Elise. And Mercury's Treads and/or a Quicksilver Sash just doesn't work well enough to get rid of a stun.

My advice kid? When trollvoting, don't half-*** it; either full-*** it, or come up with something legitimate.

The cheapest approach would be to pick up a Faerie Charm and several Mana Potion's; these would give you a huge amount of mana sustain, and will hardly slow down your other item purchases. A Tear of the Goddess or Chalice of Harmony could also work quite well, though the items they build into aren't particularly suited for Elise.

With the increased mana cost, does she still viable top ?

Does the starter item must be changed ?

With the new increased mana costs, it's a very good idea to pick up a early regen item. I would probably recommend a Chalice of Harmony as it's dirt cheap and it also provides magic resist which is always helpful in mid-lane. That being said, you could build a Tear of the Goddess into a Muramana, which might actually bond well with Elise; I'll have to test it to see if it's viable.

The "finishing touch" items are just really what I find works best, any of them are replaceable. I'd recommened taking Void Staff over Deathfire Grasp if the enemy team is stacking a lot of magic resist.

Th3o | January 27, 2013 3:24pm
Allright then,

to start off i gotta say that I really like your guide. I main Elise myself and i agree with you on most of your choices. You've got a good breakdown on her skillset and your itemchoices, although I usually build her a bit different. But as you stated yourself, it's all up to personal preference since she's so versatile =)
So overall really good job.

Now my key point for writing this reply: you've included a jungle build in your guide but as it's mainly focused on Elise in midlane there is no further followup in your guide for this build.
And ye, I gotta say that i more or less disagree with most of your choices for jungling Elise. My main lane is the jungle and Elise is one of the strongest junglers out there right now, she brings pretty much everything to the jungle itself any jungler could ever wish for and her ganks are incredibly strong. :)
Since by now I'm (imo) doing pretty decent with her I've also thought about writing a guide for jungle Elise. But as you wrote such a good guide for her I just had another idea: I would offer you to write a jungling section for your guide, including her route(s), her jungling gameplay, items, runes and masteries, ganking and her role in the team as a jungler.
If you're interested you can just contact me here on MOBAfire or add me ingame (Happy Théo / EUW).

Théo :)

PS: As I'm new to MOBAfire i dunno how to vote up, forgive me that point, I'll do it once I figured it out ;)

Good guide, very informative, but you do not need tenacious or unyielding in the defensive branch. You need more offense.

Just a thought. If you're going to go AP carry those points are better suited in offense. But one more point: Elise is actually much more viable as a top laner who builds a bit tankier while still retaining some damage. Just food for thought. +1 anyways. Nicely done.


After giving it some consideration, I decided to redistribute some of the mastery points to a more Offensive build. As to why I focused primarily on a mid lane guide for Elise and not a top lane guide is because Khazem's I excel at pulling strings is already a excellent top lane Elise guide, and I didn't want to simply make a differently presented reiteration of the same thing.

Great guide! I especially liked the layout and lane match-up section.

+1 because I have seen a lot of improvements and right now it deserves an upvote :)

Last tipps: In the Pro & Contra section, use some filler text on the right side until both have the same amount of lines. This way they will stay on one height.

Finally, in the runes section, you need to get magic not armor pen and Abyssal Scepter does not work well with Void Staff. It does with flat pen but not with percentage, since flat MR reduction is still applied before percentage ;)


Ty for the upvote and all your help. Thanks also for pointing out those issues so I could promptly fix them!

Great guide, everything is well done, and I can't say anything about the build because I don't play Elise, but the guide looks great and its well-written and informative. +1.

Putting more points into the defensive tree than the offensive tree defeats the purpose of being the APC.
It will be increasingly more difficult to get first blood, and be able to secure any kill. You may think, "Well having more defensive masteries will make me be able to take more damage and last longer, letting me stay alive to deal more damage." Not true. The enemy will burst you down, and you will have no ability power to counter.


You have me figured out wrong. The reason for the heavier investment in the Defence Tree is that Elise is weak early game, so you want to win in a game of time, not burst. That being said, I have updated my Masteries for more overall damage.

I like the guide and the content but

Holy Flying Coding Errors!

Don't get me wrong but there is a lot weird stuff floating around. Can it be that you don't know how to use columns? If that's the case, pm me and I can give you a brief introduction. This will make the guide much more appealing than it is now.

Best regards,

Honestly, even the slightest bit helps. I survived with 1 HP once. Now why? My lovely masteries. The reason they're there is to help you, not just give you something to do.

That is one funny comment. Masteries don't make enough difference to discern how long you stay in a late game team fight; he's probably just doing that to be slightly more resilient against his lane opponent to start, which isn't a bad idea at all if you THINK about it. "No Ability Power to Counter". ROFL, as if the few you get from MASTERIES are going to make a noticeable difference once you have your core items.
