Threats & Synergies
Extremely annoying matchup. He will always be pushed up because of his E, which you should avoid. Try auto attacking away his passive before you trade with him. Buy QSS if you are having a really hard time against his R. Cleanse will not help with his R!!!
His kit was made to counter AP. You can use your chains to poke him since he doesn't really have any way to W you without his R. Once he does have his R, he can be a threat. Make sure he doesn't snowball by roaming.
The main problem is his windwall. If it's on cooldown, you can go in for a trade. It's best if you use your chains against him as it will stop him from dashing everywhere. Dodge his Q's and tornado with your W.
Similar matchup to Malzahar. Avoid being immobilized as it can lead to your death. Use your W to dodge her Q or to get out of her R. It's hard to find damage on her, so ask for some ganks.
Galio's kit makes it hard for Leblanc to find damage as well. Try to avoid his dash and taunt. When you W in, Galio might try to taunt you. He doesn't have big damage during laning phase if you dodge all of his abilites. Make sure to tell your team when Galio hits 6 as he can help his teammates.
Dodge her charm, and you should be fine. Get ganks from your jungler if you start losing lane,
A good Akali can be hard to go against. Farm till 6. If they manage to E you, dont fight. Try to chain her before she gets into her smoke screen as you can follow up with another chain. Ganks aren't effective on her. She has to get up close to damage you which is a good time to use your Q+R+W combo.
If she uses her Q to poke, you win that trade, but she still has her egg. It's okay to pop it and not kill her, they'll be more afraid of you once she doesn't have her passive. If you can, get ganks, as she is really vulnerable to those.
Just trade when she doesn't have stun up. Once she reaches 6, she can burst you down with her stun. Before 6, she wont do a lot of damage, so take advantage of that.
Similar to Anivia, except he has no egg. Avoid his stun. Use chains to make it harder for him to control his 3 stars.
Avoid getting stunned by his E, as well as dodge all of his skillshots. He wouldn't be much of a problem if it wasn't for the interaction of your clone and his R. If he ults, you go under 40% hp and your clone will spawn and it will bounce back and forth between you two.
Play around her W. Go in once its on cooldown. Don't go in with W unless you can kill her as Cass can just W where you used your W. Once you are in her W, the only source of damage you can use is your chains and Q. She has constant, painful, damage if you fight her, so make sure you trade quickly.
Pretty easy, the only thing you have to be aware of is his W where he can dodge your combos and chains.
It depends on how fast the Diana's reaction is to press E once you W onto her. Once she hits 6, avoid her Q as much as possible. When you W in, immediately W out.
All you have to do is dodge his W stun. Chaining him stop him from using his ult.
Same as Corki, he can use his E to dodge your damage, but easy to kill.
Challenging, but not impossible. Before 6, try to hurt him with your chain. He can dodge all of your abilities using his E, so try to trade with him while its on cooldown. Once he reaches 6, try to dodge his ult with your W or Zhonyas.
He can use his W to get out of your chains, which is problematic. Try to use the Q+W or Q+R+W combo on him as it is the best way to kill him.
He can use his Q to escape, but Azirs uses Q to poke. While Azir's Q is on cooldown, you should be able to deal damage to him.
Dodge his E, and you should be fine. It's all about his stun, it will attract the turrets to kill you and make you vulnerable to his W.
Just farm, you will not win any trade against Karma. If you W in, she will R+W you which will heal her. She also has a shield to avoid your damage.
Pretty much any assassin has no problem with going against Karthus. He is very vulnerable and he is only scary when he reaches 6. Make sure you can kill him with just enough health to survive his ult, or buy Zhonyas.
Katarina is very hard to deal with when she is jumping around all over the place. Stay away from her daggers. Similar to Yasuo, land your chain on her, chain again if you can so she can stop moving.
Pretty easy because she is melee most of the time in laning phase. Kayle scales hard late game though because she starts to turn ranged. Try to avoid wasting damage to someone who has been R'd by her.
You're obviously the better one by reading this guide.
So much things to worry about. Same as Diana, make sure when you W in, you immediately W out as she can just immobilize you with her W or R. Lissandra cannot press E twice if you manage to root her. She becomes scarier when she hits 6. If you are losing lane, don't fight her. If you are winning lane, make sure you poke/fight her using chains. Bring Cleanse if you really don't like this matchup.
Go in once her Q is down. Don't underestimate the range of her abilities as she uses it to poke you during lane. At 6, be more careful around her Q's or buy Zhonya's/Banshee's to avoid her damage.
Painful to deal with her Q. Dodge her E, and you can win a trade, if you can chain Neeko before she W's, you can determine the real one. Once she reaches 6, use your W to dodge her ult. Pretty squishy, so dealing damage should be easy.
If you can't dodge her spears, you will have trouble with this lane. Otherwise, she should be pretty easy to deal damage to. If you are somehow losing lane, use chains to kill her.
Avoid her Q+W combo. Stay away from her ball at all times, use chains to trade. Try to bait her R using your W.
Play around his E. Stay away from anything he E's. If you're E'd stay away from him. Try going in right when he has used his E.
Going against a Syndra that knows how to use their E against you will be annoying. Make sure you aren't right behind a ball she could E. She can E you before you finish your W animation, so try to bait the E and then jump in. Buying Zhonyas can help with her ult a lot.
Make sure you dodge all of her abilities. Avoid using W over her Unraveled Earth (E). You can use your close to block her Q. I recommend going in with chains so its harder for her to aim her Q.
Don't get into his melee range because his Q will crit. Back off when you are wounded and trade when his w is down. Chain him before he ults so you can determine where he is.
Similar to Annie, go in when he doesn't have his W or Yellow Card. He doesn't really burst you down like Annie so he is a smaller threat. Make sure to ping that he is level 6 in case he decides to roam.
Very easy. A gank will mess him up or will force his flash. Go in when his E is down or use your W to avoid it. Same as Lux, you can buy Banshee's/Zhonyas to avoid some damage.
Go in when he doesn't have his E, or make him waste it. Hide by your minions to avoid his Q. He'll most likely try to farm just using his abilities. Bait his R with your W and buy Banshee's if you are having trouble with him.
Go in when his Q is down. Try to poke him in lane with your combos before you try to go all in on him since his Q has a shield. Dodge his stun field and ult with your W.
Bring ignite. Kill him as fast a possible or else he'll heal up with is Q. Hurt him with chains since it'll still root him when he W's. Stay away from him when he has Crimson Rush, or his full red bar below his health bar.
Like Vel'koz, dodge his E and you can go in. It is easy for you to dodge his abilities late game with your W.
Level 2, he will either let you push or auto attack the minions. If he goes up to kill a minion, burst him quickly, you wont kill him, but he will probably have to use health pots. Play safe around his combo W+E+Q+AA. When he R's, he will appear on the opposite side he from where he pressed his R. Immediately use chains and your Q's to damage him. I recommend you buy Zhonyas.
Don't try to walk up to him to do a Q+W combo. Poke him with W+Q+E or W+Q+R+E. Hurt him with those combos as much as possible. Dodge his Q's and he will try to use his E to knock you away or escape.
Really easy laning phase before 6, the only source of damage he has is his Q's, so avoid those. Once he has 6, try to bait his R. For example, You are going to one-shot him with Q+R+W, you should do Q+R, wait for him to use his ult, then W him once it is gone.
All you have to do is dodge her sleep and you can win trades. Her Q hurts really bad so try to dodge it. Buy Banshee's to avoid the damage. Stay behind minions to avoid her Q.
Before 6, she might try to poke you as much as she can. Before you go in, make sure she doesn't have her E as she will start dealing tons of damage to you. Once she has 6, I wouldn't try fighting her without a gank. She has so much damage and cc for her plants and teammates to kill you.
This matchup should be pretty easy because he is melee. Don't get too close to him as he can start getting you low.
He wont do a lot of damage to you so go in all you want. Once he has his R, either burst him down quickly or wait it out.
Avoid his chain after his dash. Make sure he doesn't heal with his W by staying out of range. You don't want to go into melee range with him so fight him using your chains.
