Threats & Synergies
you can alway jump off from her Ult. Other than that, you just have to position well to not catch any Q from her and you should be fine
just watch out for her Ult, but without support she is no danger for you as long as you have your W ready.
Sivir can time her E to block your E so dont go all in if she has E ready or else you are dead. Plus her poke is very dangerous against you.
she has greater range and can escape from your all in by her E. She probably will get a lot of poke to you so try to survive and outfarm her.
Draven is that champion you will have to always be ready to run away from with your W. Keep it ready and try to get him killed, thats your only hope
one of few champs to scale better than you. her Q makes her very safe against your all in as well but you have to try and delay her scaling as long as possible
go for all in whenever you can, a glasscannon that you must not allow to farm. Fortunately, you can do just exactly that.
while he may try to poke you a lot, as long as you will be sidestepping his spells, you will eventually massively outscale him.
same story as with ezreal, try to play it safe and wait till your scaling will kick off
Try to kill her before she gets to lvl 6. she can always use her ult as an escape button from your all in but she is generally bit weaker than you.
its very simple here, either you kill him or he kill you, Player with higher skill wins here, these 2 are perfectly well matched
with his range, he can just play it safe and farm from distance. If he decides to play aggressively, it will be a coinflip of who will get ahead so try to be ready for that
although a strong support, whenever you wanna go all in, you have to leave safety of her auras which can be risky
she doesnt have any healing for you, but has a whole sorts of opennings you can use for your powerful all in
he has a decent amount of openings for you, but wont provide you any healing or sheilds, you should be a dominant lane tho.
you want this one, anything with hooks is generally good but blitz especially will help you out on catching enemies completely by surprise and killing them on the spot
not something you look for, she will keep you alive, but she wont help you much with getting kills, you sort of have to do everything by yourself which is not ideal for you
so we have a decent healing, knock up, and a her very powerful Q if landed well. jup, all you really need.
you will be the weaker one on this lane, Zyra can get so dominant its sometimes even difficult to follow. But she has no healing so if enemy will attack you instead of her, you are doomed
a lot of healing with no real engage. she will keep you alive better than yuumi but you will still have to do all the dirty job yourself.
another great champion with hook. But his W may be bit rendundat for you since you have your own W
if someone pick this with you, you should question their intentions. You will have to run all the time, her extra damage is not what you really need and you will spend a lot of time at black'n white screen
Champion Build Guide
First, her range scales with your levels! so even if most enemies will outrange you on the lane, later on it may be the other way arround.
Second, when you kill a minion, the auto-attack will explode and damage nearby minions (and champions)! This is very importnat at farming, especially its use for quick pushing and farming under turret.
Third, not many people are actually aware of this too, but you can use your E on turrets! and when your E explodes, it damages stuff arround. Just watch out for any enemy champions cause damaging them even by this way will give you a nice kiss from turret.
Next, few people actually knows, but the more attack speed you have, the quicker her E is being casted. this means, that before going all in, right after using W, you should also use your Q before using your E to save those precious milliseconds before first auto-attack.
Another thing you need to know about Tris, is that her W resets if you detonate your E by auto-attacks or kill an enemy. Keep this in mind, it allows you to jump in, get a kill, and get out before getting killed. Its high risk high reward but it can work out.
Finally, we have her Ult. A simple knockback, right? well, you can also use this in combitnation with your W, jumping behind enemy, and using Ult to throw them under your turret. Sometimes just as much as 1 turret hit is enough to give you that extra damage you need. Be cautious tho, as this move can be easily predicted.
If you play solo none the less, I recommend sticking just to farming early on. Try to freeze the line, let enemy push a bit and hope for your jungler to give you more opportunities for all in.
Speaking of jungler, do not forget to help with buff and dragons! a nice tip for taking a dragon, try to get to a position where you can escape from potential fight with your W.
But keep in mind, even with your jumps, you are still pretty fragile so never go anywhere solo. Its just unnecessary risking. Your W is not always working as intended (thanks RIOT) and often can be cancelled by most ridiculous things.
You can allow yourself for some killhunt to have a nice KDA but overall, you should just focus on objectives. You can take dragons, baron, and turrets pretty quickly with using your E on all of those.
Keep staying close to your team and just push enemy base. Very often there will be a little they can do to stop you after some 35 mins mark unless you are not too much behind, and the victory shall be yours.
