Sivir - All you ever need to know!

I - Prologue

I'm Meridianprime, level 30 and playing on the EUW servers. Started playing early season 1 as Ashe until a champion rotation forced me to pick another champion. I simply picked one from the new selection that I also saw during a practice match with bots. Sivir was my choice due to her similarity as ranged, easy to play champion. Later on I discovered there is actually a HUGE difference between Ashe and Sivir regarding their CC and how to master. Since I love a challenge in games, I kept playing her, making the best out of an unloved, unwanted, overlooked champion.

Started to play ranked seriously somewhere end of season 3 and currently worked my way up to Gold League. Where new challenges await me. New tactics, strategies and formation of builds.

Here I am, making this guide for other players that like to try out and learn more about Sivir. My efforts of making her be loved again, understood and NOT to be underestimated!!
So... what have I done to create this guide?
  • Reading and testing other guides
  • Using Excel and other tools to compare item sets
  • Experience from nearly 2000 games
  • Learn and listen to other players with more experience
  • Be creative forming knowledge in a pleasant to read guide

Please feel free to express your thoughts, relevant information, constructive criticism and other points of improvements in the discussion section or PM me. I hope you enjoy reading it was it was for me to write it. Thank you for your time!

The above chart shows what spell can be used for a certain purpose as well as the level of recommendation. The 2 spells you need to pick depends on a few factors.
  • Team composition
  • Enemy team composition
  • Strategy
  • Personal play style

During champion select all the factors are known. The champions in your team and those of your enemies. With a quick chat with your teammembers ( good luck with that in solo queue ) you may create a certain strategy. And I hope you are aware of your own play style.

In order to know which ability to upgrade first you have to consider the following 4 factors. As you will see that enemy factors weight more in which ability to consider next.
  • Enemy composition
    Knowing your enemy's abilities is very, very important. This can put you in big trouble if you upgrade the wrong ability first. Some enemies can CC lock you at level 2.
  • Enemy behaviour
    After a few minutes you got to know more about your enemy's intentions. If they just stick to last hit or don't ward very well. You can determine which skill has a higher priority.
  • Abilities of your support
    This is very important to know whether you go for damage first (W)(Q)(Q) or play casual (W)(Q)(E). Not often you have to play defensive with just regarding your support.
  • Personal play style
    Regardless of setup, if the player (you) dislike to sing out the laning phase and is eager to get First Blood. Go for some more offensive sequence. Others just like to hug their turrets and wait for a gank to start the fight.

The above is no golden rule / wonders of the world, but it helps in the majority of the time. Also having passive enemies with risky abilities, you can still pick offensive order. Same goes for other combinations. Consider them wisely!
