hello everyone im fearinsidious ive been playing LOL for about 2 years and i enjoy playing it so much. I started to play competitive sense season three and ive gotten to silver one elo all in mid lane. mid lane is my thing just what i love to do i feel like its the most exciting lane to play and is my best lane. as a mid lane main i got into playing cass and she is so much fun because she fits my play style so well Cass is great for poke and high damage she can spam hard with Noxious Blast Twin Fang combo and just over all is a good offensive champion. i have over 100 games played with cassiopeia and know her vary well. if you want to know more about me im planing on starting a youtube channel and you can check out my lol king as well right here. http://www.lolking.net/summoner/na/36462749#profile
Twain fang skill sequence
Maxing will bring more damage to the table but you will be more vulnerable to attacks. this is more of a aggressive ability good vs some counters and also good to pick if you want to trade hard.
Noxious blast skill sequence
Maxing is best for a poke comp or if you need to play passive for it helps you farm harder and you can poke out your foe to get him out of lane or weaken him to get a kill. most of the time you will be more focused to max what does more damage or what will help more in a team fight so keep in eye for what your team needs more.
there are a few combos that work on cass remember when playing cass her
cooldown resets when poison is on your foe so or will add that poison effect. this is the most damage effective combo cass has to offer and you can continue this combo by added in another or another good combo is this is good for poking and also good for farming a pile of creeps.
this combo is needed to finish off your foe if you cant take anymore damage do this if you are about to die or if they turn on you try to land ult when they are facing you for it stuns when they are looking at you and when their backs are turned from you it will slow hard this both ways acts as a AOE stun or slow and the radius is a cone shape. when team fighting try to bait them in for your stun or you can flash on the majority of their team and make sure you have your team to follow up on your engage. it is key to have good positioning in fights because you will be a high damage peel champion and if they engage for your adc and a high damage teammate that you will need them alive use that ult or just try to peel by helping them with your cc and damage ive seen so much people just leave the adc behind and lose the fight because of it. if you see their ADC exposed go in for the kill but if you see them move around weird it could be a bait so play smart and think about what could happen before rushing in.
I like taking 9 marks of magic penetration 9 seals of mana regeneration 9 magic resist glyphs and 3 quintessences of ability power this is a great all around ap caster mid but i love it on cassiopeia as well for she does use alot of mana early game and the magic pen helps so much for more damage and same with the ap quints and magic resist glyphs are just good for that sustain and with out any armor or magic resist you will die so fast so if you are going up against a attack damage mid replace magic resist glyphs with armor and have two pages for this you wont need it that much but it will help.
for masteries i take 18 in offensive and 12 in utility but this is all about your play style and or what your vs so what i use is good for a passive early game and a vary offensive mid to late game but see whats best for you :) this is what it all looks like OFFENSE 1 1 - 4 - 4 - 1 - 1 - 3 - 1 - 2 UTILITY - 1 - 3 - 3 - 1 - 3
Items early to late game
NOTE!when you are making a build in league of legends you need to see what they have and what you can do to counter or prevent what they got so remember this before you copy my guide in a build for you can't build the same thing every game so ill try my best to help you all build what you need in a match.
Lets start with early game normally i will build a with 2 this is for if you want to trade hard for it will bring 80 hp good mana regen so you can spam a bit more and that 15 ap does more then you think so if you want trade hard or just want to poke a'lot. or you can go with a sustain build their are a few ways you can do this one is a with 3 and 1 and you can go with 1 sight ward with 4 1 and a this will be so useful if you think the jungler is going to camp lane you just early gank i feel like its best to put it in bottom bush and stick around that side for when he comes in from top bush you can run around into bot bush and get to safety. still in progress
