Threats & Synergies
Shouldn't be too hard to invade and set behind early game. Only becomes a problem later on when you can't full combo him and he can catch you out.
Should be easy for you to kill, as you leaping onto him makes you dodge his blade's edge, and you dish out your damage faster. His revive is annoying.
One of the harder to kill midlaners. You will NEED an edge of night shield, and you will need to be ahead enough to kill her in a fast combo, as she can dash to safety easily with her R. (Check combos section).
Only a problem when ahead. Still hard to kill even when behind, thanks to untargetability from her shroud. Hitting her with a full combo and Emp. E should do the trick, though. (Check combos section)
Plain annoying and stupid. Hate this champion in general, his only job is to cuck you over. Even with an EoN shield, he still has 2 more ways to cuck you and he is very hard to kill. Get your stack on him early on or else you will suffer.
Super easy to kill. You can shield her stun, and your Q goes through her wall if she tries to put a wall between you and her after leaping.
An Edge of Night shield will make your children - stabbing much easier. Her E is really good against autoattackers in general, so be mindful of its damage.
Extremely easy to kill. Even without a shield, her ult's stun is very short and she has no way to escape you.
Immobile, stun cannot hit you if you leap onto him, his ult has a windup time and can be shielded. No excuse for you to not kill him.
His ult can be shielded, but he can escape using his shurima shuffle. A fast combo should make short work of him, though.
Just plain annoying. Many ways to make your life harder, especially his ult.
Almost as annoying as Bard, but tankier and can actually kill you thanks to his high base damages and low cooldown E / R.
No escape and no way to negate your damage. His stun requires more than a second to land, which is more than enough for you to kill him / ready up your Emp. W.
Tanky and annoying. Can give his allies extra resistances and has 2 forms of cc. Be mindful of him.
A good cait is annoying, as she will put down a trap underneath her / where she walks. Other than that, she blows up easily.
Easy to kill, just takes longer than usual due to her invulnerability from her ult, or, if she decides to, she can E away. Be mindful of her shield as well.
You need a shield, because a good cass will ult you as soon as she sees you, even before you land, meaning you won't have your Emp. W ready to cleanse the stun.
Gets very tanky and can cuck you over with his silence / knock up. His 1k damage ult lategame is something to be careful of as well. You need to kill him early.
His W can help him escape, but if you hit your mid air E, then the slow will help you catch up. He can deal serious damage.
Contrary to popular belief, Rengar is stronger than Darius early on, when Dar-man isn't tanky. Leaping onto him will negate a crucial part of his comb - his q - and once you're in, you need to kill him or die.
Purely a matchup of who's more ahead, favoring Rengar just a bit, thanks to his double W.
Unkillable. Sticky. Super high base damages. Kill him early for the stack and avoid for the rest of the game.
A good draven will cancel your leap mid air with his E. If he does so, then you're as good as dead. A shield will help in this matter.
Use your empowered E to deny him of his ult. If you don't then just be ready to fight him with 2 healthbars because his ult will heal up all your damage.
You can eat her stun and you'll still outdamage her. Her spider form E is a nuisance.
Among the easiest junglers to fight against. Can't do anything to you if you invade, your counterganks screw her over, and if you force her to ult away, that's half of her damage gone.
Can go for an annoyingly tanky build, has an escape, and long range. Best hope is a fast combo when ahead, or a well placed Emp. E when even.
His Q (fear) is a nuisance. A shield negates that and once you take that away from him, he has nothing.
You NEED to delay your combo against her (see combos section) because she can negate alot of your damage, lifesteal what little health she lost, and chase you with her ult movespeed and Qs.
A good fizz is a nightmare. Your best bet is to wait for him to engage, because if you leap onto him he'll E away / fight back with a small shark and a full rotation, which can kill you.
Tanky, deals alot of damage if he builds AP, and can counter some of your ults with his own ults. His taunt can negate alot of your damage, and mess over your combo rythm, and his punch can mess your combo up as well.
Too easy to kill. Only is a minor nuisance if he builds bruiser.
This guy I despise. He can negate your damage, and deny you your heal since his silence lasts 1.5 seconds. He can damage you while running away / chasing thanks to E, and his ult is just bs.
Just a matter of dodging his CC. Fight him in his mini form preferably, and land your E to catchup to him when he dashes away.
This f*cker is scarier when AP than when tanky, due to the recent change to his W and all the CC he has.
Never underestimate graves' damage. A good graves will auto you twice with an E reset, Q - ULT you and you'll be dead. Just a matter of who finds who first.
Always gonna be easy to kill, unless he builds armor, in which case he becomes useless.
No escapes, but man, jumping onto heimer with 3 turrets ready and him stunning you is no fun... Shield required!!
Dodge or shield her E and you win the fight.
Evade her stun, and dont walk out of the ult because it'll render you unable to autoattack. Also, be mindful of her W, which gives her 50% damage reduction.
Can't kill you but can be very annoying early on, and will help peel for his carries later. Catch him out before a fight preferably.
A good e-girl will ult you away as you leap. An EoN shield can take care of that easily.
A J420 is never a problem, even if he's ahead. He is more useful than you in teamfights, so try to avoid them. You shouldn't teamfight with Rengar in general anyways.
Nightmare. Kill him early to get the stack, then avoid him for the rest of the game. Thanks to his build, he will be semi tanky but will deal alot of damage.
Don't see him played alot anymore, but he's easy to deal with, since he is a bursty champion. Early on you want to trade with a double W, but as you get more damage you can just combo him down.
THE FAST IS NOT FASTER THAN YOU!!
Literally a sitting duck.
Hardest ADC to kill, even harder than vayne. Not only does she have stealth, but also a massive shield, especially when she builds AP. One way to get her is to make her activate her stealth pre-preemptively by getting close to her and making her panic.
Land your E and she is wont be dashing anywhere.
Is deceptively tanky with her shield and empowered tether ( which heals her by 25% missing hp twice). You still can one shot her though, but mess up and you die.
Yeah, he deals alot of damage, but you deal more damage faster, so it's all about your sidestepping skills after you kill him :D
A problem late game, but until he gets there, you should be able to deal with him. Use Emp. E to deny him his ult.
Should never be able to 1v1 you. Has some mobility near minions, allies and enemy champions.
Only is a problem when she groups up. You should deal enough damage to make her use her ult and have her low.
Before transforming, he's annoying. If he goes blue and is ahead, you need to be quick with your W or you'll be dead before you know it. Red form is easier to deal with, since this build doesnt have too much health but instead focuses on burst.
He should never be able to kill you, thanks to your cleanse and double W. Likewise, you won't kill him easily after he gets zhonyas.
The infamous matchup. It's all about who jumps first, but Khazix has the edge thanks to his ult giving him stealth mid-fight. But you can heal back up alot of his damage by double W. Set him behind pre-6 and you're gucci.
AVOID HER IN TEAMFIGHTS. Her ult CUCKS YOU HARD. Just catch her out or don't teamfight, better off splitting.
Tanky? Check. Chase potential? Check. Anti-burst? Check. Damage? Check.
Annoying. Alot. Still oneshottable with crit.
He should not be able to 1v1 you past 10 min mark. Before that, plan your pathing and try to focus on farming. Don't let him get too far ahead.
Plain annoying. A lot of CC, very tanky, you know, just what Rengar hates.
She can build a zhonyas and along with her ult and W, you wont be killing her anytime soon. You need to wait for her to engage and throw her cds.
One of the harder adcs to kill, only because he builds some health and has a dash. Still easy to deal with, just dont miss E.
THIS B*TCH 1v1'D ME ONCE. Alright, I was behind and what not, but still, polymorph, knockup, and she has a speed up. You NEED an EoN shield!!!
Dude, this guy, along with Rammus, just dodge or afk. Or go Conq. Rageblade - BoTRK
As long as you build an EoN, youre good. But sometimes they get cheeky and proc your shield with an E...
Tanky, has healing, has CC, kill early and avoid late.
Can go either ways. Be sure to shut him down early on and invade him with cds up. Dont waste damage on his meditate.
HUEHUEHEU just be mindful of his healing and shield, otherwise, he's easy to kill.
EoN Shield? Yes please!
Fish is cat fav food. Shield the bubble.
Champion Build Guide
Full Combo (Triple Q)
> As you land
To perform this combo, you need to have full ferocity and all of your regular abilities off cooldown. This combo requires you to activate your before leaping, NOT while you're leaping or after you leap.
