Even as someone who plays Orianna a lot, there are nuances in this that helped me to improve!

That's awesome to hear, thanks so much!

Good guide!

Hey Sylvan! Can you do a Vs heavy ap build please? Thank you man!
Sylvan Lore | October 14, 2020 8:14pm
I'll get right on that! For some reason my notifications have been broken lately, sorry for the late response.

Hey Sylvan! what are your thoughts on Precision secondary and Ghost now that it's been buffed? Love your guide man and thanks in advance
Sylvan Lore | July 10, 2020 9:51pm
Sorry I missed the message! Precision secondary can be great for mana regen in lategame teamfights, but I am a big fan of biscuits to try and buff up my laning phase. I am a huge fan of ghost if you can get used to it, but I find it to only really be strong when you are taking it to match another mid-laner taking it. If you end up in a situation where you have ghost and they have ignite/teleport, it can be tough to match laning phase or roams. But in the end I think those are definite choices based on your personal play-style.

Hii Sylvan, I can’t understand why we choose to build Luden instead of Hextech GLP-800, i’m not sure about 10.8 but in 10.7 most pro’s build it as a first item.I created an account just to ask this question:)
Sylvan Lore | April 24, 2020 7:29pm
Thanks for the question! Initially I updated my guide from 10.5-10.7 to reflect the GLP-Phase rush build that I saw a lot of pro play moving towards. During that time I was also testing a lot of different build paths and mostly following this.

For starters, I am really not a huge fan of GLP on Orianna. I struggle to efficiently use the slow on the item without baiting myself into getting much too close to the enemy. For coordinated teams, this slow can be game-changing, but in solo queue it is often a bait IMO.

Also, with the recent buffs to Orianna, I feel like her burst is a little stronger and I like the slightly increased damage in this item. That is not to say that I will not build it in certain situations. I think it is a great counter to champions like Singed, Kalista, ...etc. At the end of the day it comes down to preference and my guide shows mine from personal experience. If I am correct Luden's will become meta even in pro in the near future.

Hey Sylvan, I was wondering with your new build order do you typically build oblivion orb after Luden's then build Liandry's and just finish Morellonomicon as your last item? or do you not get oblivion orb until you actually start building Morellonomicon? Thanks in advance!!
Sylvan Lore | April 18, 2020 4:38pm
I really like the sitting on Oblivion Orb for as long as possible. Yes exactly like you said, Ludens into Orb into Liandry's.
Synax | April 18, 2020 10:46pm
Sweet thanks for the reply man! Love the guide been super useful <3

Hi Sylvan. I want to know what do u think about orianna with unsealed spellbook? dopa, caps and other pros play her like that.
Sylvan Lore | January 23, 2020 5:24pm
Yes I have seen this taken by a few really high end pros but I have some concerns with taking this rune myself.

First of all, this rune allows for a lot more skill expression with the additional decision making, but this also brings in the opportunity to make a lot of mistakes. If my summoners are flash-barrier for instance, I will always have the bail out defense of my barrier. But say I swap out the barrier for a teleport, this may have seemed like a good decision to me, but it could also get me killed where I would otherwise survive! Personally, I would want a lot of experience around optimizing this rune before I tried to take it into a ranked game.

Secondly, this rune isn't available until the 6 minute mark. That may not seem like much, but for a champion who is as dominant in the early levels as Orianna, it feels like a waste. There are many assassin match-ups such as Akali where the only real times that you win are pre-level 6. Combine this with my preference to play Orianna in a lane dominant fashion and I definitely sway more towards taking Aery and pushing my early advantage. It really does just come down to preference though.

Ok. thx for the reply

Hello Sylvan! I just wanted to say thank you for the guide! I had my first pvp match with Orianna yesterday, taking on a Yasuo who played nothing but Zed and Yas, thanks to your guide, I was not only able to score several solo kills on him, the build and match up details helped me never die in lane, with only 5 deaths through from team fights! The final score was 8/5/20 with a victory at the end, thank you for taking the time to make this easily understandable even for a new Orianna player!

Hello again,

I was wondering what is the best way to use Minion Dematerializer on Ori? Because after like lvl 9 you already 1 shot the caster minions. Am I still supposed to use it on them? or do i use it on the melees, but even with all 3 on the melees i still don't 1 shot them till much later
Sylvan Lore | April 22, 2019 1:58pm
Although it does change minion damage on the type you dematerialize, that’s not the main reason I take it. Like you said Orianna has good waveclear already so it’s not really important in that aspect. It is more important for wave management and base timings.

The most common way I will use it in lane is to pressure a champion that is poor at waveclearing, especially under turret. Champions like Leblanc and many others struggle to or at least waste a lot of mana to CS under turret. If you simply use the dematerialize to delete cannon minions, you can easily shove large waves and force them under their turret. This will waste their time and mana while giving you a great time to roam or go back to base and return to lane much faster than they can.

So I guess in the simplest form, if you just use it mindlessly on the first 3 cannons, it will create a lot of pressure into your opponent and tilt lane in your favour. There is nothing a twisted fate or a talon likes less than being stuck under their turret while you outscale them. Hope this helps!

No match info for Azir?
Sylvan Lore | April 21, 2019 10:57am
Have no idea how i lost the old one, but i just put in a new one!
Requiem Waltz | April 21, 2019 12:22pm
Thanks for the quick response. I've been playing a lot of Orianna recently and this guide has been super helpful. Specifically the match-up section.

Hello! Great guide to Orianna. Thanks for it.
While I was reading it, small question crossed my maind. Why did you chosen Spellbinder as somehow prohbited item? It gives a lot of AP and movement speed. Also, it's active effect is very powerfull.
Sylvan Lore | August 12, 2018 7:40pm
Thanks for the question!

Spellbinder is a really interesting item that I'm honestly still learning the power of. It is a very efficient item in the with how much AP it offers for such a cheap price, but i just don't see it fitting well into a build. What I mean by that is in the standard Mana+CDR->Pen->D-cap/Surivability build path there isnt much room for this item to shine. It can't replace your first item as you would lose lane. I could see it as a possible second item, but in its current state, I still feel Morellonomicon with its flat penetration is incredible on Orianna.

At the end of the day, i just cant justify having it in the place of a Morello,Zhonya or Deathcap. The passive also feels a bit less useful on Orianna since you never really chase down kill like something such as Vlad or Akali.

Hope that helps!
