Threats & Synergies
Easiest lane you will have. Always push with vision and poke with Aa's and E's, he will take ROA and Tear as early items.
Melee champions always suffer agains donger. Despite his passive, rape him with Aa's and stunt him under your turrets at lvl6.
Easy lane same as Kassadin. He counters you at lvl6, take Zhonias and negate his main combo. If it works, he will be in the middle of all your turrets and you just have to E.
I always take ignite against Zed, its a easy lane if you manage to evade his basic lvl 3 combo and poke him under turret, take ex if you are affraid of ganks. Take the armor part of Zhonias and build ROA.
If she gets one kill, you are done. Push all day and poke, take ignite if you feel confortable and ex if you dont. Put her under turret, dont let her roam.
Same as Katarina.
Same as Ekko/Kata but more difficult, he can be so annoying and can kill you with one single combo. Build ROA.
Poke & Poke all day, negate her healt regen. Dont waste your E at lvl6.
Not the best round but still pretty decent. He cah farm your turrets and deal more damage. Put your turrets far away from each other.
Rare lane, easy to be honest. She will always play pasive and wait for gank.
Same as Akali, poke to negate heal regen. Build Liandy.
Take Ignite, medium lane. Aviod his stun. Build Liandy/Morello.
He can Q your turrets, avoid your E with pool and fuck you with one combo at lvl6, he will build a ton of Magic Resist.
If he gets close, he is dead. If he play safe, there is nothing you can do, can destroy your turrets with Q and recover mana on lane. He will lost his turret but he will roam at lvl6 and there is nothing you can do. Take Teleport.
Play safe at lvl6. Before that, just poke and save your E for ganks.
Q and a couple of her E and your turrets are gone. But, it was before 7.10, you can answer so well now. Anyway her late destroys you.
You cant oneshoot her. At lvl6 she can take all of your turrets. As soon as you take her pasive, ask for gank.
Boring lane. Her pool drains all your turrets hp and her shield negate your E.
Hard matchup but easy if he dont play safe.
You just cant get close. If he recall and build some Ap items, goodbye turret.
Hard. Damn wall. Take ex or ignite if he is stupid enough. Build Tabi and Rylai to deny her stupid movement.
Squishy if he doesnt build Rylai. With one single soldier he can take your turrets. Dont put them close and maximize your W.
Not bad before lvl 6, avoid her charm and you will be ok. Very hard lane at lvl 6, she can avoid your E so easily. Take barrier or ex if you are bad at this matchup.
Hard counter but after 7.10 things changed so much at favor to Heimer. Still a counter, kill her after she recalls. Priorize W.
If she take barrier, it would be harder to kill since she has a barrier attack. Her AOE attacks and her passive will be your worst nightmare.
If he gets his 1250gold update he can take away your turrets in one single laser. Anyway is still easy but he brings more to team fights than you and outscales you.
He destroys your turrets at lvl 1 with no effort or mana cost. Hardest line and underrated.
2nd hardest lane. Build QSS to avoid hard ganks and survive. Stay away from minions or turrets with his E and remove her passive shield with basics attacks.
Heimerdinger god tier counter. Can take your turrets so easily from far far away and avoid you to get close. All of his attacks brings pain to your lane phase.
She can take your turrets with one single Q+W+E. Her poke is even better than yours and her shield is simple your oneshot capacity's worst nightmare. If she uses her shield... thats the right time to attack. In resume... even Syndra is defeatable.
