Threats & Synergies
Blocks your passive AA + ranged champion. Can be a real pain in the ass, in my opinion the hardest of matchups.
High damage + ranged. I find this matchup somewhat easier than the Teemo one. Ask jungler for early help.
High early damage and R invulnerablity.
His damage/life steal is comparable to yours, you should be able to out-trade him easily using your E.
Pretty tanky, but doesnt have very good escape. Easy for chase and trading while fighting, but be careful about his passive.
Skill matchup. Pay attention on his W cooldowns and strike when he's out of his double Q proc.
You out-trade Mordekaiser from the very beggining of the game, and even if he manages to get to late you still easily win due to your passive heal.
Hard to play vs after 6, use early advantage to pressure the lane.
Don't let him stack and you'll win without any problems.
Skill matchup. Dodge her vital damage and her W stun.
You're most likely to have more damage than him, isn't considered a high level threat, can be hard to hit the edge of your Q due to his E dash.
Hard matchup. His machine gun, slow, shield, passive and R are here to destroy your day. He's able to comeback after getting behind so ask jungler for repetetive ganks.
Skill matchup. High mobility doesn't let you land skillshots properly, however you win most all-ins. Be careful when you don't have R - she outscales you with her R.
You'll win this lane almost every time, since she can't do anything during your early roams, also doesn't have a good escape, but be careful after 11.
If you don't let him focus his ghouls on you, you'll most likely to win the trade. Lane gets harder over time, so destroy him early.
Squishy but has high damage output. Be aware of her strong bursts and R executing effecitveness.
No mobility, bad damage. Destroy him early and dodge his Q.
She won't really do anything without her passive and stun so just out-trade her.
No mobility. The only time he can kill you is via jungler ganks.
You cancel his Q easily, his lack of mobility lets you chase him. There isn't anything he can do in this matchup.
Skill matchup. You'll win fights when you land a passive hit, but if you don't, then run away and wait for cooldown.
You outscale him with your passive heal, however chasing him is really painful due to his stuns and slows.
Low effectiveness vs Aatrox.
He can cancel your auto attacks, easily taunt you under a turret and get tanky very fast. Be careful not to let him get ahead.
After Renekton buffs he's a strong champion with all-in-get-out kit, so watch closely when he wastes his W stun, then all in him.
High level of risk because of his overall damage and life steal. Be very careful and call jungler for help.
Keep your distance and heal his Q poke from minions. after 6 lvl he isn't a threat to you.
