Ability Order Vs Mages/Tanks
Threats & Synergies
Sustain, Tankiness, Lifesteal. Use E with caution and awareness. Try to go for a level 6 kill when he is level 5.
Skill based matchup. Bait her charm, then pounce onto her and all in. Don't let her charm you near your tower, or it is a solid gg. She is also extremely broken at the moment, so play smart.
Avoid fighting her early, and trade as much as possible when her shroud is down. Make sure to preserve mana, as she uses energy. Your ult and ignite can see through her shroud. Stay far behind minions to dodge her Q and E.
Fizz's worst enemy. Continuous cc. This bird can stun, slow, and chunk you hard. Worst of all, she RESURRECTS FROM A DAMN EGG!! Freeze, play safe, and Q onto her when she is poorly positioned.
Same thing as Ahri, but has less waveclear. Freeze, and capitalize on her positional mistakes. Go in when she has no stun. Stay away if she has Q, as using E to dodge it is oftenly not worth it. Look for roams when you can, as you have better waveclear.
You have engage tools. When he mispositions, Q onto him or a minion, and start auto attacking him. Save your E for his cc, and shark him when he uses his E.
He can poke you out of lane, but you get him easily at level 3 and 6. Kill him as much as you can early, because this sand bird will outscale you in the late game. Remember to play safe if he has ult, so save E, and use Q if Azir uses his Q. Look for roams, and to cut off his dash to soldiers, which is shown by a line of sand.
Poke is all about him. Save E for his stuns, and Q on him when he uses his W. You then beat him easily. Watch out for his strong poke. It is ok to use E to dodge his W if it is needed. After 6, save E for his ult, and Q to dodge his abilities instead. Look for burst trades.
She has a lot of poke in this lane. Respect her at all times in this lane. Mercs is recommended. When you are level 3, you can look for trades. Dodge her Q. Remember her W makes you unable to E, Q or Flash.
She's tanky and has cc. She beats you in extended trades, so go in, poke, and get out ASAP. When she is level 3, back off if she hits you with Q. Try to look for roams, by shoving first. If she wastes W or E, this is your time to punish.
Ekko is pretty easy. Dodge his Q with E, jump onto him, and run if he uses W. At level 6, save your shark for roams, as Ekko has such an annoying ult that makes him invulnerable.
You are in a skill based matchup!!!!
He has extremely strong poke, and boosted oranges. If you leap onto him, he will AA you and use barrels. Avoid this matchup if you can. If you end up in it, then look for ganks, and try to break his barrels by timing it.
Save your E for her stun, then you win the 1v1. Get out if she uses R, because you never know how strong it is against you. You win almost every trade at all times. If she is playing safe, just roam. Dont fight if she has a lot of passive stacks.
Rare but brutal. You want to give up a lot of cs early, or he will kill you fast. Play safe till you hit level 6. Then you will win. HE WILL DESTROY YOU TILL LEVEL 5. Use E to dodge his empowered ranged Q, or his hammer form Q.
He is just annoying. He has a magic shield and is tanky with tons of cc. You only can sit mid and farm all game. He roams way better than you. When looking for a burst trade, use E to dodge his dive, but its not a bad idea to dodge the taunt. PTA is a must. Ask for ganks if possible.
A good karthus will sit at range and harass you for every cs. Look to roam when you can, because you have fast and stronger waveclear. Look for burst trades when you can. If he plays far, you can Q to a minion to engage. Remember your E can dodge his R if timed right.
He will 100% outscale you late game. Look to roam as much as possible. You beat him until he hits level 11. Then you're in trouble. Look for burst trades early on. Take ignite for kill pressure, and use shark if he wastes ult. Most kassadins dont respect you early, so can maybe look for an early first blood with ignite.
Easy matchup, but not too easy. She has 2 daggers in her kit, so you want to E when she will teleport. Its hard to time as well. When she uses w, its a good time to e. Post 6, use E for her ultimate. PTA is nice. Use corrupting pots from better trading damage.
Easy lane. Try to engage with q and burst her. After level 6, don't use ult with all your abilities. You wanna force the ult while still holding an ability. Do not R when she has W. Try to not get outscaled. If it gets to late game, just blow up her adc, as she will need to give up her important ultimate.
Kennen can get a bit annoying. Just Q on and dodge those Strong and Slow shurikens with E. If Kennen uses R, get out IMMEDIATELY!
She can get a bit painful sometimes. Use a corrupting potion before you trade with her, and use the purple flame on her to attack the correct version of her. Your ult is great to deal with her. Remember to abuse her early W cooldown, as it is quite long early. Same time by being careful without your E.
Pretty basic matchup. Look to roam a lot, since her ult denies you 100%.
She is just a bully. She has waveclear, and a ton of shields. Grab cs safely, and look to roam since she is a mage. Use E with awareness. In a nutshell, just play chicken till level 3, then look for trades. Rush zhonyas to deal with her ult.
Skill based matchup. Never throw your shark when his passive is up, stay far from your low HP minions, and look to burst trades when possible. If you can chunk him out of lane, you can look to roam. Mercs can work if you wish.
His lack of movement is the only advantage you got against him. Use E for his Q only. Use Q if he uses E, and get out immediately if he procs passive. Hide if he uses ult. Look to roam. PTA is a must.
Same with Lux. Play safe early, and roam as much as you can. You have much more waveclear, but make sure to stay behind minions. Don't ult if she has her magic shield. Mercs can help with her damage.
Same with LeBlanc's clone, use a corrupting potion before a trade to see the real neeko with a purple flame. Use E, Zhonya's, or stopwatch for her ult. Roam when you can. If you're not confident, option 2 is to chicken farm till level 6, then make some plays. Mercs can work.
She probably has the strogest poke among all mages in the game. She has a ton of cc as well. Roaming is your only advantage against her. Look to burst if you can. Mercs if you are struggling.
He has stuns, poke, and an Invulnerability shield, and better roams. You can only shove waves. Use E if you see him using Q when its worth. If he uses E, think of yourself as a Shaco. Look to hit him from behind, since he won't negate that damage. Play safe if he has passive. E can dodge his W.
Play safe, and look for engage trades. She is like a similar version of you, so you can call it "skill based". Post 6, stay away from walls, and E if it is a must. Look to roam when you can.
Annoying, but easy lane. He is so mobile, that trading gets upsetting. Look for burst trades when possible, and use E to dodge his bomb. Play safe level 1 and 2, then you are fine. Tip: only use E to dodge him empowered ultimate unless you're gonna die.
He has CC and a ton of waveclear. He also can roam a lot. Play safe, and look to fake roams to bait his ult. Try to look for burst, and stay away from your minion wave. Mercs is a great option against ryze.
Waveclear, cc, healing, mobility, and shark robbing. Just avoid fighting him when he has all his abilities, and roam a lot. If you are low, stay away. If he uses Q, try to trade. Save E for his second part of E. Look to burst him with corrupting potion. PTA is recommended.
Play safe, give up cs, and look to punish her poor positioning. Keep Moving to dodge those Q's. Try to roam a lot as well. Avoid 1v1 when she has a lot of dark circles on the floor, or her ult will kill you unless you use your E. Zhonya's is a must rush, and mercs is a great choice.
She shoves waves faster, roams better, and has range. Punish on her poor positioning and she is 100% death meat.
Play extremely safe at level 1 and 2. Then look for a level 3 all in. Remember to get out immediately if he hit both parts of his W. Only use R when he doesn't have his, or you can kill him fast enough. Remember your R provides TRUE VISION, so he can't turn invisible. He has the waveclear and roaming advantage always. If he roams, spam ping your team back.
Save E when he has a gold card, and look to all in him when he is around 80% health. If he roams, shove as many waves as possible. Respect him level 1 and 2. Take PTA for best chance at winning.
He is easy to lane against. Save E for his prison, use engages when he is out of position, and look for extended fights. END THE GAME ASAP OR HE WILL ONE SHOT EVERYONE!!!!!! Respect his poke, so stay away from minions. PTA is a great rune in this lane.
Squishy with super slow abilities. Save your E for his E, and look for all ins with your shark. Roam a lot. If you win your lane, it is game over for the enemy team, and he will struggle to come back. Mercs is okay, but PTA is amazing.
Play safe early, avoid his traps, look for all ins, and use E for his R. Simple match. His scaling could get a bit annoying, but it isn't too bad. Pop your corrupting potions when you trade, and stay away from your minions.
Play safe when he has empowered abilities, and never use your R unless you got his pool. You win short trades, and Vlad only wins with his R. Use your E to escape immediately if he ults, unless you can guarantee the kill. His pool CD can be abused, and is your opening to hit an R.
His is super immobile, and if he uses his ult, it's a free shark for you. Get in, kill him, and get out. While laning, stay away from your own minions, so he has to choose between minions or harass. His E is easy to dodge with your E. If he uses it, ALL IN!
Skill based. You win short trades while he wins extended trades. Play safe against his level 2, and look for a level 3 all in. If he wastes his wall, throw your shark. He also has a sustain and shoving advantage, but you have burst. Avoid fighting in minions at all times. PTA is almost a free win in this lane.
Save your E for his W pre 6, and for his ult when he is 6. Never max your E first, because he will shadow swap and deny you. Shove waves when you can so you can get a roaming head start. Use your R when he isnt in range to R you. Rush zhonyas, and go PTA.
Play safe early, and roam. Thats all to it, since he will blast himself always if you ult. Watch for his early poke. Corrupting pots are greats, combined with your PTA.
His ult screws you over, and you can't avoid his Q damage when stuck to you. Look to shove and roam, and never ult if he is nearby. You win trades against him, but he has better survive ability. Use E to dodge his stun, and stay away from minions with his bomb. Easy lane, impossible solo kills. If he uses ult, let him survive on 1 hp, then when its over, clean it up. Zhonyas can help a lot with this. Watch for his double stun.
Skill based matchup. Save E for her bubble, and look for all ins. If she uses ult, that is a free shark. Look to roam as well. If she hits a bubble, you're probably gonna take quite a lot of damage. Mercs can be considered a must.
She has a ton of poke. Your only hope of winning is to 100-0 her with a max range shark and ignite. Look for roams. She zones you from minions hard, and will root you if you try to commit to a trade of any sort. If you are looking for a burst trade, use E to dodge her root.
Champion Build Guide
- Switch Taste of Blood to Sudden Impact.
- Choose a Hunter Rune of your choice.
- Choose the defensive rune you would like.
With the current meta PTA is a great option! Take tenacity instead of alacrity if the enemy team has a lot of CC.
For Items, you go with the build mentioned at the top, but you see there is 7 items, and that is because of the of Mejai's Soulstealer. If you have a lot of stacks, you can choose between Void Staff, or morellonomicon. The difference between both is simple. Void Staff as a lot more Magic Penetration, while morellonomicon provides a bit more AP and 300 HP. Choose what is needed if you got a nicely stacked Mejai's Soulstealer.
In something like a kassadin match up, a secret a friend taught me is to rush Wit's End, go PTA, and corrupting potion. Then look for W max, and play like a master yi (100000 autos that do 1/2 your health)
For the first 2 waves, grab minions safely. When the 3rd wave connects, start aut attacking the melee minions immediately, as the 3rd melee in the 3rd gives your first power spike: Level 3. Then you want to look for an instant engage with Q, and then do the AA-> W combo, then use E. When you use E, consider what the opponent has. For example, against a Zed, land on him with E and auto him to death, but if it was an Ahri or Lux, you would use E to disengage (pretty much against every champion with CC at level 2). When you hit level 3, if the opponent is just out of range for your Q, don't be afraid to Q to a minion instead. You always open with Q, because E gives invulnerability, which is needed to disengage. If they play super safe against your level 3, zone them from minions. Look for trades whenever you can, and vs champions with clones, (LeBlanc, Neeko) pop a Corrupting Potion before engaging.
When you hit level 6, look for an all-in immediately, because level 6 vs level 5 has a huge difference.
CONGRATS! YOU NOW MADE IT THROUGH THE EARLY GAME!
You main focus in the mid game, is to split push in a sidelane and look for kills on anyone who isn't protected by their team (Picks). If the top laner or bot lane duo come to contest you, leave or look for a fight if you are 100% sure you will win. For example, if the enemy ADC and Support come to contest you will half health, this a green light to one shot the ADC and get out. If it was a full HP toplaner, it is best to group mid and look for a teamfight with a numbers advantage. You also want to switch to sweepers to pull of picks more safely, as looking for a pick can result in you dying if the enemy had vision on you.
Lets use an example.
You are playing against Nasus top, Kindred jungle, Anivia mid, Jinx ADC, and Braum support. You managed to kill Jinx with a full combo and you need to decide who to kill next. Kindred will do a good job at keeping everyone alive, so it isn't too big of a threat. Nasus will look to one shot your squishies with his Q and tankiness, so he is a potential threat. Anivia, will look to 1v5 the teamfight with her massive CC, so she is a huge threat. Braum wants to Knock everyone up and protect the team. IF seems to be that Anivia will destroy everyone, so you should go for her, then Kindred, then Braum, and end with Nasus, because it will take a while to kill him, so you want the squishies gone first.
There is also the scenario where the enemy team has an assassin. Thats is when you go for them immediately after you kill the ADC, because they want to kill yours to. Think of Chess, where the King is the ADC who needs to survive, and you as the Queen, who's job is to kill as much enemies as possible.
At 6, you want to engage with Q + R or Flash + R to land a shark with animation canceling, because Fizz R is easy to dodge. If you land the shark, use AA + W, and auto until they die. Use E to dodge or gap close.
If your top laner took TP too, and they have it, or you took ignite, you want to push in the lane closest to the upcoming objectives. If both players took ignite, then push the lane with the lowest chance of an enemy appearing.
When split pushing, you need to consider the threats to you. For example, if the enemy team has heavy cc champions like rakan and gnar, you want to stay away from the lane. It is important to establish strong vision in the lane you want to split push in, because it is not worth getting collapsed on. If there are no CC threats, then you need to look if you have the resources, and the tools to keep the pressure going. Your goal is to secure turrets, but it is mainly to draw attention away from your team, so they can win fights and secure objectives. After all, assassins aren't too good at teamfighting as other classes of champs.
For more about side laning, check out my other guides, as they cover teamfighting and side laning too.
After your shove, now you need to look for the location to roam. Will you gank a lane? Support an invade? Or secure an objective execution? This all comes down to how the map looks. For example, lets say that your jungler is invading the opponent's bot side buff, and you have lane priority. In general, the next step would be to rotate to help, but if the enemy bot lane has priority, all of a sudden, you are in a 2 on 3 situation, which will not turn out good in most cases. You want to roam with your jungler, but you need vision and map awareness. Another example is if you claimed lane priority, and your jungler is on rift herald, and your top laner has shoved top wave into the enemy turret. That is when you should go help, as the enemy top and mid are stuck under their turrets securing farm. The last example is for ganks. Lets say that you are looking for a roam. Your top laner has about 20% health, while the enemy top is 70% health, with a 1000 gold lead. However, the bot lane has everyone at about 50% hp, and you have a good engage from your bot laners. That is a roam that you are looking for, so you go down and get 2 kills. Now you got your bot lane ahead, while getting 2 kills with no minions to farm mid. This is extremely time efficient.
Lets say that you are against a champion with better roaming than you, such as ryze, TF, talon, Aurelion Sol, or the enemy just took tp. Roaming will then require your jungler, or you can find yourself in a bad situation, which is why you need to secure vision control. If you have lane priority, but no plays can be made, it is a great time t use a sweeper, and help get some vision.
