Introduction - Kev

Hey Guys,

I will show You, how you can carry games with Cassiopeia. This Guide is for Ranked Games over 1200 Elo and will teach you how to lane or how to jungle with Cassiopeia. I have played her in so many ways - and yesterday I have tried some new jungle champions, and won like 10 games a row with jungling her.

Now I will teach YOU - how to carry a game.

I hope you enjoy my comprehensive guide.


Guide Top

Laning - Runes

Magic Penetration, you take those runes for nearly every AP Carry and they are still awesome as the other marks are not as good as those.

Flat AP, I always play with those Flat Ability Power Runes, because they make Cassiopeia to even be good at level 2.

Greater Seal of Vitality HP per Level, always nice and does help you laning against tanky players like Gragas or Galio.

Flat Ability Power, give you a bonus of ~15 Ability Power which will make your Twin Fang beat down your enemy early on.


Guide Top

Laning - Masteries

I go for 21-0-9 (see at the top of this Guide) for increased Ability Power and Damage - I think the role of a very good AP Carry is to deal tons of damage, if you know how to positionate in a teamfight - then you will not die anyways. There is no really good reason to go 9-21-0.. increased Buff Duration for spamming your Noxious Blast and your Twin Fang.

I accept criticism on my masteries at any time - but I play with them in nearly every Ranked. Even they are the same for my jungling part.


Guide Top

Laning - Items

At the beginning you have to decide how you start.
If you see a Brand or I do normally go for and three Health Potions.
>> For Dodging their Skillshots easier.
If you see an easier enemy like Ahri or Malzahar I go for a Doran's Ring or a Amplifying Tome.
>> For increased Damage and easier lane sustain.

Now you can go back after farming till level 6 or even longer - go for
>> Rylai's > For Slow - and increased Health.

or go for an early Rabadon's Rush so you can easily dominate your lane - but care out for ganks from both sides of the river!

After having Sorcerer's Shoes; Rylai's; Deathcap; I normally go for:
Void Staff and Zhonyas.

Your last item is situational and will depend on the enemy team.

Laning conclusion (:

So.

You have to play defensively till you get your Twin Fang. After reaching level 2 you should be able to harazz your enemy, if you feel confident enough to aim your Noxious Blast correctly.

If possible use SMARTCAST.

Cassiopeia dominates nearly every enemy if you are a good smartcasting player.

What is smartcast?


If you press Shift + "The Key for the skill you want to use(Q,W,E,R)".
This helps you especially for your Miasma and of course - more important, your Twin Fang. Just keep your mouse over the enemy will spamming "Shift+E", but b]ONLY[/b] when the enemy is poisoned already. Due to her passive Deadly Cadence you just spam the f*ck in their faces!

For more questions - comment and I will add a lot more to this section.

Jungle - Runes

Nearly the same than to the laning one.

Magic Penetration, you take those runes for nearly every AP Carry and they are still awesome as the other marks are not as good as those.

Flat AP, I always play with those Flat Ability Power Runes, because they make Cassiopeia to even be good at level 2.

Armor, these ones let Cassiopeia become a great jungler with insane ganks.

Flat Ability Power, give you a bonus of ~15 Ability Power which will make your Twin Fang beat down your enemy early on.

Jungling - Masteries

Since the new junle remake, you are able to jungle with pure damage masteries and you are still able to gank.

I go for 21-0-9 (see at the top of this Guide) for increased Ability Power and Damage - I think the role of a very good AP Carry (and Jungler at the same time) is to deal tons of damage, if you know how to positionate in a teamfight - then you will not die anyways. There is no really good reason to go 9-21-0.. increased Buff Duration for spamming your Noxious Blast and your Twin Fang.

I accept criticism on my masteries at any time - but I play with them in nearly every Ranked. Even they are the same for my laning part.

Jungling - Items AND Route

Now it starts to be funny.
1. Start with Amplifying Tome and a Health Potion. Go to Blue Buff and let someone pull him. (ACTIVATE YOUR HEALTH POTION!)

2.
After finishing blue continue to blue, use Smartcast to spam your Twin Fang and finish them.
3. Go back to base and buy as many Health Potion's as you can. Go for some jungling or start ganking like a boss.

!IMPORTANT NOTICE!: For easier jungling buy a Hextech Revolver, this makes you a perfect jungler and you will not need any Health Potion's anymore.

How to positionate in a teamfight ?

Well.
Many Players who recently bought Cassiopeia size 32Cassiopeia will fail at their positioning.

How do it do it right?

You are NOT a tank or an offtank, so do NOT just jump in .. wait for your tanks/offtank to taunt all the attention of the enemy team and then go in like a real boss!

Here is a video of Nurok, playing on high elo:
This is not me - playing in that video!!
