Threats & Synergies
Kindred will almost always beat diana in a 1v1 and his ult completely counters her burst in teamfights. I would recommend banning kindred
Poppy is very hard to kill for diana and can cancel diana dash not allowing it to reset
Diana isnt a champion that can invade very easily. allowing shyvana to be able to free farm and will end up stat checking diana from level 6 onwards. Diana almost never can beat shyvana in a fight
Diana excels in teamfights, mordekaisers ability to remove her from a teamfight completely shuts her down, and diana will almost never win in a 1v1 fight to morde
Master Yi q completely negates diana combo, as well as his w reduces dianas burst.
Ekko ult makes it nearly impossible to ever 1v1 as diana
Elise E can negate Diana ult damage when timed perfectly. Very hard to kill for diana
Reksai is very easy to assassinate if you get ahead as diana however, reksai has the advantage for how strong his early game is and being able to snowball. He also can use his ultimate to negate diana ultimate damage, but if you can use zhonyas it will guarantee your ultimate to hit because he wont be able to ult to dodge it
Wukong with his clone can make it hard to land your combo on the correct one, as well diana never wins 1v1 vs him.
Tristana has a dash and ult that completely counter dianas assassination. and if you misstep she will blow you up
Vayne condemn as well as shieldbow makes it almost impossible to ever assassinate vayne
Nocturne isn't too hard to fight for diana once you get items, however his spell shield if timed well can negate a lot of your damage and it is also very hard to gank vs a nocturne because he can counter your ganks very easily
Both champs can burst each other, its just a matter of who gets ahead.
Lulu shield, and ultimate make it hard for any assassin to burst. however, she is easy to jump onto and kill if you are strong enough
Nidalee only strength early is kiting and playing from afar to weaken her enemy. Diana can dash onto nidalee and beat her in almost any fight. However, diana level 2 is very week so just need to be careful of the level 2 invade and you will win.
Viego cant pressure diana early game and diana heavily outfarms viego making it very easy for her to get ahead
Fiddlesticks is a champ that wants to farm to get strong, which is perfect for diana because diana is strong enough to invade him at any point. She also clears much faster so will be able to free farm all game
Champion Build Guide
IMPORTANT: when playing tank diana all of your damage comes from your dark seal before you get demonic so it is important to protect your dark seal stacks and not go for fights you will lose your stacks in unless it is overall worth it for the game state.
When playing tank diana most of your damage comes from over time and you are very tanky, she uses a ton of mana so if you are not fighting in the jungle sometimes you will need blue buff or you will need to pay attention to your mana costs and not take too long of fights. with jaksho you become insanely tanky and still do insane damage assuming you have a good amount of dark seal stacks. You can use your q to stack your jak sho stacks before fighting so you can have extra armor/mr before committing to a fight. if you jump in without jak sho stacks a lot of the time you can get one shot
Q - Diana q will give vision on an enemy it hits so can use it to get over walls on unexpected enemies. You can also use diana q on minions as a gap closer to make a gank much easier. Most of the time all you need to make a successful gank is to dash on the enemy and ult, so its ok to use your q on the minion as a gap closer.
E - Diana e will reset if enemy has a passive stack on them from your Q, most people think you can only dash twice but you can actually dash 3 times. If you dash mid q and your q hits after your dash, the other enemies your q hits will still keep a passive stack, allowing you to reset your dash yet again, then finally dash to your target. For instance, you can q to an enemy, dash to the minions mid q, when your q hits the enemy you can dash to the enemy and it will reset again giving you a 3rd dash.
R - Diana ult will do more damage the more enemies it hits.
