About Me
Hello and welcome to my Lissandra guide! I have been playing League of Legends since 2013, been above a platinum elo since season 5 and have been a guide writer with previous coaching experience.

I am currently an ADC main who has 300,000 mastery points on Caitlyn. I have played Lissandra since season 4 and have over 200,000 mastery points on her. If you’d like to see me play ADC or Lissandra midlane, feel free to come to my stream where I will teach you how to play Lissandra, answer questions in chat and host viewer games! I would appreciate a follow on Twitch and an upvote on this guide - it really helps me out and makes it worthwhile for me to continue updating this guide. I go live on Twitch every weekday from 5pm GMT+0! This schedule is subject to change. I also host some of my friends' streams when I'm offline, so check them out when I'm hosting them if you'd like to have a good time!

Iceborn Subjugation (Passive) Whenever an enemy champion dies while Lissandra is near, she spawns a Frozen Thrall from their corpse.

Frozen Thralls chase nearby enemies, prioritizing champions, slowing nearby enemies by 25% and shattering after 4 seconds, dealing 120−520 (based on level) (+30% of ability power) magic damage. Frozen Thralls gain increasing movement speed over their duration.

Ice Shard (Q)

RANGE: 725 / 825
COST: 60 / 65 / 70 / 75 / 80
COOLDOWN: 10 / 9 / 8 / 7 / 6
Throws a spear of ice that travels in a line and shatters when it hits an enemy, dealing 70 / 100 / 130 / 160 / 190 (+70% of ability power) magic damage and slowing its Movement Speed by 16 / 19 / 22 / 25 / 28% for 1.5 seconds. When the spear shatters, its range is extended by 100 units. Shards then pass through the target, dealing the same damage to other enemies hit (but not slowing them).
  • Your Q is your bread and butter ability. It's your waveclear, your damage and your lowest cooldown spell.
  • Position yourself in lane so when you Q a minion wave, the shattered spike will also hit an enemy champion.

Ring of Frost (W)

RANGE: 450
COST: 40
14 / 13 / 12 / 11 / 10
Freezes an area around Lissandra, dealing 70 / 100 / 130 / 160 / 190 (+30% of ability power) magic damage to nearby enemies and rooting them for 1.1 / 1.2 / 1.3 / 1.4 / 1.5 seconds.
  • The range (450) on this ability is really small. Try not to waste it as it has a fairly long cooldown.

Glacial Path (E)

RANGE: 1050
COST: 80 / 85 / 90 / 95 / 100
24 / 21 / 18 / 15 / 12
Casts a claw of ice that moves forward in a line, dealing 70 / 105 / 140 / 175 / 210 (+60% of ability power) magic damage to all enemies hit. Reactivating this ability transports Lissandra to the claw's current location.
  • This ability does some good damage so you should max it second. Do not underestimate your damage as using this ability as a damage tool instead of a repositioning tool can allow you to be the difference between oneshotting an enemy carry or not.

Frozen Tomb (R)

RANGE: 550
COST: 100
COOLDOWN:120 / 100 / 80
ENEMY CAST: After a 0.5-second delay, Lissandra freezes the target enemy champion, knocking down and stunning the target for 1.5 seconds.

SELF CAST: Lissandra instantly entombs herself, placing herself in Stasis for 2.5 seconds while healing herself over the duration, with the heal increased by 0% − 100% (based on missing health) at time of cast.

Upon enemy OR self cast, after a 0.5-second delay, Black Ice spreads from Frozen Tomb's target and lasts for 3 seconds, dealing 150 / 250 / 350 (+ 60% AP) magic damage to all unique enemies entering the area, and slowing them by 30 / 52.5 / 75% while they remain within.
Rune Setup

Lissandra has two solid ways of proccing Aftershock on enemies. Since she is a short range mage, the extra armor and magic resist really help her survive when she gets close to CC targets.

Demolish is a rune that has great synergy with Lissandra. As Lissandra you tend to push a lot due to your superior waveclear, so Demolish lets you accelerate your gold lead when pushing by letting you get tower plates and turrets.

You typically build Zhonya's Hourglass. The extra armor this grants will make you tankier and survive for longer. Alternatively, take Bone Plating.

Overgrowth gives you a little bit of extra HP which allows you to survive for longer. Free stats are always helpful.

Manaflow Band
Lissandra struggles with mana due to her high ability costs. Manaflow Band helps reduce the impact of this crippling issue by offering her some mana sustain and more mana in her pool.

Lissandra loves cooldown reduction, and it is very easy for her to reach level 10. Sometimes you can over-cap on cooldown reduction so this rune will convert it into bonus Ability Power for you so the stat isn't wasted.
Luden's Echo My personal favourite item out of all three options that build out of Lost Chapter. It gives you a good amount of AP, mana and a nice damage passive which helps with clearing waves or dishing out heavy amounts of damage in fights. The cooldown reduction is great too.

Banshee's Veil Banshee's Veil is the perfect item for you to buy if you're struggling against an AP champion with extremely high burst such as Diana or if the enemy team have a magic damage based composition.

Zhonya's Hourglass This item grants a lot of armor and some ability power in addition to an active that grants vulnerability to you for 2 and a half seconds. This can be used to stop targeted spells from damaging you such as Veigar's Primordial Burst and Caitlyn's Ace in the Hole. It is an important item to buy if you're against an attack damage assassin like Kha'Zix, Shaco, Zed or against a fed AD carry.

Hextech Protobelt-01 Protobelt is a fantastically cheap item that gives you an active with a short cooldown that lets you instantly clear minion waves, re position or chase enemies.

Void Staff When enemies start stacking magic resist, or even something like a Null-Magic Mantle you really need magic penetration. This makes 40% of your damage get ignored by the magic resist that your enemy has and it also grants you ability power. It's a very cheap item for the stats it grants and is very effective.

Morellonomicon gives you a nice amount of flat magic penetration, a good amount of health, ability power and a passive that makes your spell damage apply the grevious wounds debuff to the enemy champions you hit.

Rabadon's Deathcap There's really not much to say about this item except for that it is mandatory for almost every single champion that has good AP scalings. It grants you a huge AP boots which helps you with all of the damage that you'll be outputting onto the enemy team. Lissandra's AP scalings are mediocre but every single one of her abilities deal damage, so it adds up.

Sorcerer's Shoes Good item for mages. Grants movement speed and magic penetration which increases your spell damage by a significant amount. Lissandra's low movement speed doesn't allow her to get around the map very quickly, so this benefits her a ton.
