✄ About Me ✄
Hi, Shad here. I've been a League player for many years, with even bigger gaps. My longest one lasted about 4 years, but I came back thanks to a friend who introduced me to Gwen. After the trailer of this character, I said that she is for me and that I will become her main. Before that, I was Singed's OTP for many years and reached my peak in season 8 - Master 300 LP EUW. Today I still really like Singed and I think he is a great champion to play, but my favorite character as I wrote above is Gwen. I decided to write this guide so that people will get to know this champion as I did. I hope this guide will be more accessible to you.
✄ Why Gwen? ✄
Gwen is a hypercarry/bruiser AP toplaner. It has a fairly simple kit that is based on AP damage as well as true.

He can adapt to any possible situation - he can be a tank, bruiser, and full AP hypercarry. It all depends on what we need most at the moment. Yes, Gwen can be a tank like I mentioned before. However, someone will ask me "How can a tank deal damage like a bruiser?" I answer - it's Gwen.

She excels at splitpushing, and is very strong on the sidelane in mid and lategame, so she can easily defeat characters who want to threaten her and interrupt her job.

However, in addition to splitpushing, Gwen has POWERFUL teamfights where she can easily knock out an opposing tank or carry and come out unscathed thanks to her W (The one that all mages and ADCs hate.)
✄ Gwen Pros and Cons ✄
+ Gwen scales VERY well
+ Has a very good splitpush
+ Has very good 1v1 and teamfights
+ Deals massive damage to structures (towers, inhibitors) as well as creatures like dragon or baron
+ Easy to play
+ She is a flex (toplaner, jungler), can be a tank, bruiser and hypercarry
+ Has a simple skill set
+ Has HUGE numbers

- Poor early
- If she's behind she's very weak, she needs to win a lane or be even so she's not useless
- He is a very weak blind - he has a lot of difficult matchups
- Hard to master
- She's squishy
- Her skill set is damage-only
