Deep inside, she felt the skin she had been born into was an ill fit for her and dreamed of one day becoming human. Her goal seemed forever out of reach, until she happened upon the wake of a human battle. It was a grisly scene, the land obscured by the forms of wounded and dying soldiers. She felt drawn to one: a robed man encircled by a waning field of magic whose life was quickly slipping away. She approached him and something deep inside of her triggered, reaching out to the man in a way she couldn't understand. His life essence poured into her, carried on invisible strands of magic. The sensation was intoxicating and overwhelming. As her reverie faded, she was delighted to discover that she had changed. Her sleek white fur had receded and her body was long and lithe, the shape of the humans who lay scattered about her. However, though she appeared human, she knew that in truth the transformation was incomplete. A cunning creature, she adapted herself to the customs of human society and used her profound gift of beauty to attract unsuspecting men. She could consume their life essences when they were under the spell of her seductive charms. Feeding on their desires brought her closer to her dream, but as she took more lives, a strange sense of regret began to well within her. She had reservations about actions which never troubled her as a fox. She realized that she could not overcome the pangs of her evolving morality. In search of a solution, Ahri found the Institute of War, home of the most gifted mages on Runeterra. They offered her a chance to attain her humanity without further harm through service in the League of Legends.

[champion] => Array ( [champion_id] => 50 [display_name] => Akali [url_str] => akali [title] => The Rogue Assassin [key] => [description] => Ionia has always been a land of wild magic, its vibrant people and powerful spirits seeking to live in harmony… but sometimes this peaceful equilibrium does not come easily. Sometimes it needs to be kept in check. The Kinkou are the self-appointed keepers of Ionia’s sacred balance. The order’s loyal acolytes walk the spirit and material realms, mediating conflicts between them and, when necessary, intervening by force. Born among their ranks was Akali, daughter of Mayym Jhomen Tethi, the renowned Fist of Shadow. Mayym and her partner Tahno raised their daughter within the Kinkou Order, under the watchful leadership of Great Master Kusho, the Eye of Twilight. Whenever her parents were called away, other members of the order stepped in as Akali’s surrogate family. Kennen, the Heart of the Tempest, spent many hours with the young girl, teaching her shuriken techniques, and emphasizing speed and agility over strength. Akali was a precocious child, and soaked up the knowledge like a sponge. It became clear to all that she would follow her parents’ path—along with the Great Master’s son and appointed successor Shen, she would lead a new generation dedicated to preserving Ionia’s balance. But balance can be fleeting. The order found itself divided. A wayward acolyte named Zed returned, and clashed violently with Kusho, wresting power in a bloody coup. Akali fled into the eastern mountains along with Mayym, Shen, Kennen, and a handful of other acolytes. Sadly, Tahno was not among them. Zed’s transformation of the Kinkou into the merciless Order of Shadow was almost complete. But, as the new Eye of Twilight, Shen intended to rebuild what had been lost. They would return to the Kinkou’s three fundamental philosophies: the pure impartiality of Watching the Stars, the passage of judgment in Coursing the Sun, and the elimination of imbalance by Pruning the Tree. Even though they were now few, they would train neophytes to restore and grow their numbers once more. When Akali came of age at fourteen, she formally entered her Kinkou training, determined to succeed her mother as the new Fist of Shadow. She was a prodigious fighter, and mastered the kama and kunai—a handheld sickle and throwing dagger. Though she did not possess the magical abilities of many of her fellow acolytes, she proved to all she was worthy of the title, in time allowing her mother to step down and help mentor the younger neophytes. But Akali’s soul was restless, and her eyes were open. Though the Kinkou and the Order of Shadow had come to an uneasy accord in the wake of the Noxian invasion of Ionia, she saw that her homeland continued to suffer. She questioned whether they were truly fulfilling their purpose. Pruning the Tree was meant to eliminate those who threatened the sacred balance... yet Shen would always urge restraint. He was holding her back. All the mantras and meditations could quiet her spirit, but such platitudes would not defeat their adversaries. Her youthful precociousness turned to outright disobedience. She argued with Shen, she defied him, and she took down Ionia’s enemies her way. In front of the whole order, she declared the impotence of the Kinkou, all its talk of spiritual balance and patience accomplishing little. Ionians were dying in the material realm, and that was the realm Akali would defend. She was trained as an assassin. She was going to be an assassin. She did not need the order anymore. Shen let her go without a fight, knowing this was a path that Akali must walk alone. Perhaps that path would bring her back one day, but that would be for her to decide.

What few know, however, is that phoenixes are elemental beings, formed by the eternal essences of their native world. Anivia was conceived on a world such as this - a being of the coldest winter, a creature of pure elemental ice. On her world, Anivia was the protector of the frozen wastes and all those with the spirit to endure in such unforgiving places. She was consulted as a creature of great wisdom, one who could not die and who had seen the world renewed several times. Somehow, Anivia knew that the day would come when she would be plucked from her home and pulled across worlds, and when that day came, she received the call with grace. Seeing the imbalance and injustice on Runeterra, a world lacking elemental protectors, Anivia took her place at the League of Legends. Since her arrival, the Cryophoenix has chosen to live among the highest peaks of the Northern Ironspike Mountains, adjacent to the frozen wastes of Freljord. She has openly claimed this territory as her own protectorate. Surprisingly, Anivia has struck up a friendship with the yeti of this region - a friendship that grows deeper and deeper with each passing moon. She has formed a close bond with two League champions: Nunu (and Willump) and the nomad princess Ashe. In a move that caught the League by surprise, the Cryophoenix recently entreated the summoners of the Institute of War to research a means in bringing across others of her elemental fellows. As a champion, Anivia is revered with a sense of awe by most, but is not the most popular as most consider her unapproachable. Some say the world will end in fire, some in ice. Anivia awaits the inevitable latter.

The High Command had just put down a coup attempt from the self-proclaimed Crown Prince Raschallion, and a crack down on any form of dissent against the new government was underway. These political and social outcasts, known as the Gray Order, sought to leave their neighbors in peace as they pursued dark arcane knowledge. The leaders of this outcast society were a married couple: Gregori Hastur, the Gray Warlock, and his wife Amoline, the Shadow Witch. Together they led an exodus of magicians and other intelligentsia from Noxus, resettling their followers beyond the Great Barrier to the northern reaches of the unforgiving Voodoo Lands. Though survival was a challenge at times, the Gray Order's colony managed to thrive in a land where so many others would have failed. Years after the exodus, Gregori and Amoline had a child: [[Annie]]. Early on, Annie's parents knew there was something special about their daughter. At the age of two, Annie miraculously ensorcelled a shadow bear - a ferocious denizen of the petrified forests outside the colony - turning it into her pet. To this day she keeps her bear ''Tibbers'' by her side, often keeping him spellbound as a stuffed doll to be carried like a child's toy. The combination of Annie's lineage and the dark magic of her birthplace have given this little girl tremendous arcane power. It is this same girl who now finds herself as one of the most sought-after champions within the League of Legends - even by the city-state that would have exiled her parents had they not fled beforehand.

One night, as they sailed through the arctic waters, strange lights danced over the frozen wastes. There was something hypnotic about them; it was something that drew them to it like moths to a flame. Trekking across the frozen waste, they came to a cave covered in ancient runes. The meaning of the runes long lost to them, Kegan led the way inside. There, inside a perfect cage of ice floated a dancing column of flame. There was no way such a thing should be burning, especially not in this place. However, its movement was as hypnotic as a siren's song, captivating and seductive. While the others stayed back, Kegan could not help but approach it while holding out his hand... That is the last thing Kegan Rodhe remembers, for now his body belongs to Brand.

This clue led her to a secluded valley on Mount Targon where she unearthed the hidden entrance to an ancient, sealed temple. Inside, among aging relics and faded murals, she found an ornate suit of armor and a beautiful crescent blade, both inscribed with sigils of the moon. Diana donned the armaments and returned to the Solari elders that night. She declared that the artifacts proved others had once worshipped the moon as she did.

Lunar power surged within her and she shattered her bindings. Raising her relic blade, she turned and slaughtered the elders.

One day, Fizz returned to find the city abandoned: his people had vanished, leaving Fizz without a clue to explain their disappearance. With nothing left in the city to keep him, Fizz salvaged an enchanted trident from the ruins and set out alone. For years, Fizz wandered the ocean, using the skills he'd learned during his adventures as a young boy to survive. Finally, Fizz discovered the port of Bilgewater. He was fascinated with the existence of life above the water and could not resist exploring the island. In his endless curiosity, Fizz inadverently meddled in the affairs of the humans who lived there and his presence did not go unnoticed. His mischief angered many residents who eventually sought to capture or kill him. Fizz found himself cornered, and he prepared to return to the sea despite the fondness he'd come to hold for Bilgewater. As he stood at the docks, a massive dragon-shark attacked the port. Fizz defeated the beast, using his resourcefulness and knowledge of the creatures' weaknesses to his advantage. Having earned the gratitude and respect of the humans, Fizz decided to stay in Bilgewater. He joined the League of Legends to further serve his new home. ''Fizz makes even the saltiest sailors of Bilgewater look like drunken landlubbers in a fight. Good thing he's on our side.'' -- Miss Fortune, the Bounty Hunter.

Only those with great fortitude and endurance dwell in what is perhaps the most rugged and unforgiving environment anywhere on the face of Runeterra. It is here that the mighty Gragas keeps permanent residence, living south of Noxus. This behemoth of a man has long eschewed the rigors of civilization for what he calls his ''slice of paradise;'' he has no neighbors to bother him and plenty of space to pursue his life's ambition - brewing. Grogs, ales, meads, and wine - nothing is beyond his skill to brew. What makes Gragas a truly special brewmaster, however, is his proximity to a large and powerful nexus. The magic of this nexus has seeped into his fermented creations, and Gragas has consumed enough of his own poison over the years to slake the thirst of an army. This arcane alcohol has caused Gragas to swell both in height and girth; he looms over the tallest of men and boasts nearly twice their width. To complement his immoderate size, Gragas has developed an ornery temper - one fueled by liquor and raw magic. His infrequent sojourns into Noxus for supplies always unfold the same way: Gragas enters a Noxian tavern, Gragas gets into several fights, Gragas lays out countless citizens, and finally Gragas flees for the foothills with Noxian constables in hot - though reluctant - pursuit. His misadventures have garnered him the attention of several summoners in the League of Legends, and he is now a willing champion in the arenas... doling out hard liquor and harder fists. The Rabble Rouser leaves a path of drunken destruction in his wake, both in the Fields of Justice and off.

Within a decaying cyclopean city, Kassadin found secrets of the kind that he will never share - secrets that made him quake with fear at the visions of things to come that were thrust upon him. The power of the place threatened to consume him forever, but Kassadin took the only route available to him in order to survive - he let the Void inside him. Miraculously, he was able to overcome the alien urges that went with it, and he emerged as something more than human.

There are some, however, for whom nurture is not nature, and Katarina is just such a creature. Born the daughter of the feared Noxian General Du Couteau, the girl was always more interested in her father's knives than in the dresses, jewelry, and other trifles that her sisters spent so much time fussing over. A childhood dispute soon unveiled her uncanny knack for bloodshed, and her father, ever the opportunist, happily fostered her killer instincts. After training under the tutelage of the finest assassins the mighty city-state had to offer, Katarina first cut her teeth performing assassinations in the Ionian War. There, her ruthless mastery of the knife and dagger combined with her sadistic temperament to earn her the title Sinister Blade, a moniker that would follow her for the remainder of her career. She is most famous, however, for her exploits in the campaigns against Demacia, especially those surrounding her engagements with the nation's champion, Garen; a rivalry that began when she recovered the remains of Sion from a vanguard under his protection.

Deep within the winding dungeons that honeycomb the earth beneath its dark, meandering streets lies the real underbelly of this sprawling metropolis, a haven for all manner of malevolence. Amongst the cults, covens, and secret societies that call this labyrinth their home, LeBlanc, the Deceiver, presides over the Black Rose, a remnant from a lost, yet similarly unscrupulous time in Noxian history. Ruthless and seemingly ageless, LeBlanc and her ilk were a mainstay in Noxian political affairs during the era before the militarization of the Noxian government. In those days, this guild of powerful magicians met in secret to further their hidden agenda, and to hone a craft more subtle than that preferred by those currently in power. While their exact motives have always remained mysterious, it was widely believed that the Black Rose was the true power behind the throne while the aristocracy still reigned in Noxus. When raw martial prowess became the ultimate determination of whose will held sway in the Empire, the Black Rose seemed to vanish overnight. Many believed that perhaps their time had simply passed, and that its members had put aside their quests for social and political dominance. When LeBlanc reemerged at the gates of the Institute of War, however, it became clear that these masters of shadow and flame had simply been biding their time, waiting for a new global authority to emerge: the League of Legends.

During her youth in Bandle City, she spent most of her time wandering alone in the forest or lost in a daydream. It wasn't that she was antisocial; the day-to-day bustle of Bandle City just couldn't compete with the vibrant world of her imagination. She saw wonder in places most people overlooked. This was how she found Pix, a fae spirit, pretending to be stuck in a birdhouse. Lulu's imagination distinguished her to Pix, and he seized the opportunity to lure her into his life. He brought her to the Glade, the enchanted home of the fae, which lay nestled in a clearing in the woods. There the rigid properties of the outside world - things like size and color - changed as frequently and whimsically as the direction of the wind. Lulu felt at home in the Glade and she lingered there with Pix, fascinated by this secret place. She quickly lost track of time. Her life in the Glade was comfortable, natural. She and Pix played fae games together, the sorts of games that she had been told were "make believe"... and she got exceedingly good at them. It caught her by surprise when she suddenly remembered that she had left a life behind in Bandle City. The Glade had a way of making everything outside seem distant and surreal. Lulu decided to revisit her former home, to share some of the lovely things she'd learned, but when she and Pix returned the world had changed. Time, she discovered, was another property that behaved differently in the Glade, and centuries had passed while she was away. Lulu sought to reconnect to the residents of the outside world, but her attempt had unfortunate results. She led all the children off to play hide and seek, temporarily changing them into flowers and animals to spice up the game, but their parents didn't appreciate her efforts. When the yordles insisted that she leave their land, she turned to a vibrant, magic place where those with unusual gifts were not just accepted but adored: the League of Legends.

She grew up as the family's only daughter, and she immediately took to the advanced education and lavish parties required of families as high profile as the Crownguards. As Lux matured, it became clear that she was extraordinarily gifted. She could play tricks that made people believe they had seen things that did not actually exist. She could also hide in plain sight. Somehow, she was able to reverse engineer arcane magical spells after seeing them cast only once. She was hailed as a prodigy, drawing the affections of the Demacian government, military, and citizens alike. As one of the youngest women to be tested by the College of Magic, she was discovered to possess a unique command over the powers of light. The young Lux viewed this as a great gift, something for her to embrace and use in the name of good. Realizing her unique skills, the Demacian military recruited and trained her in covert operations. She quickly became renowned for her daring achievements; the most dangerous of which found her deep in the chambers of the Noxian High Command. She extracted valuable inside information about the Noxus-Ionian conflict, earning her great favor with Demacians and Ionians alike. However, reconnaissance and surveillance was not for her. A light of her people, Lux's true calling was the League of Legends, where she could follow in her brother's footsteps and unleash her gifts as an inspiration for all of Demacia.

Much of that world still bears the scars of past Runes Wars, especially the mysterious Kumungu Jungle. There are long-forgotten treasures in these strange places which many risk life and limb to acquire. The champion known as Nidalee was only a young girl travelling with her treasure-seeking parents when they lost their way in the dense, rainy jungles. The jungle was unforgiving, and she watched her parents suffer agonizing final days as they fell victim to a mysterious and vicious disease. As improbable as it was for a child to survive in the inhospitable jungle by herself, she did just that. Her youthful innocence and a fortunate naivete caused her to appeal to the beasts of that place and she was taken in by a family of cougars and raised as one of their own. She grew and somehow absorbed the raw magic of the dense wilds, evolving beyond both her human physiology and her feline affectation. On one pivotal day in her life, standing over the torn remnants of a Noxian squad of woodcutters, Nidalee chose to rejoin the so-called civilized world, to fight in the League of Legends so as to protect the vast woods from both Demacia and Noxus. Nidalee was taught to fight by her feline family, battling viciously with tooth and nail. Something in her feline ways may draw you to her, but remember that she is no pussycat.

Though Orianna had incredible talent for dancing, she was deeply fascinated by the champions of the League of Legends. This fascination compelled her to begin training to become such a champion. It is unfortunate that her sheltered, wide-eyed naivete led her to take unnecessary and dangerous chances which ultimately led to her tragic demise. Orianna's death shattered Corin, driving him into deep depression and an obsession with techmaturgy. He could not stand the void his daughter's death left in his life, so he decided to build a replacement - one that would complete Orianna's dream of joining the League. What was created is the clockwork killing machine that Corin named after his daughter. Knowing that she was destined to be a champion and seeing the way the times were changing, he created The Ball as her pet and protector. This nearly symbiotic creation uses a different type of techmaturgy, relying more heavily on electricity than clockwork. Orianna and The Ball now fight as Champions in the League of Legends, using her sometimes misguided morality as a compass. She tries in earnest to fit in with those around her. However, no matter how hard she tries, Orianna can never be human and there is always something unnerving and alien about her. Though she attempts social interaction with other champions in the League of Legends, there are few who can get past her exotic nature. To many, it's as if there's nothing inside, that Orianna is just a soulless clockwork shell - a dangerous and deadly one at that. However, all along she remains the perfect daughter in her father's eyes. ''Dance with me, my pet. Dance with me into oblivion.''

For most, pursuit of such knowledge is formalized in a college or university. The halls of traditional study were never for Ryze, however, who felt a more raw and primal connection to the magic of Runeterra than those who tried to teach him. He struck out on his own as a young man to discover what already called to him. Ryze traveled the world, seeking the wisdom of powerful hermits, witches, and shamans - anyone who had something to share beyond what was taught in the city-states of Valoran. When he had learned all he could from these fonts of wisdom, Ryze turned to seek the lost, forgotten, and forbidden knowledge in the world, delving into mystical worlds where others feared to tread. Ryze's tireless searching for magical knowledge led him to an ancient form of spellcraft known as thorn magic. This art required Ryze to tattoo spells on his body, permanently infusing his being with vast arcane power and finally fulfilling his need to bond with the mystical energies of Runeterra. His travels also led him to uncover the giant indestructible scroll he now carries on his back - the purpose of the inscribed spell remains a secret only Ryze knows. He claims it is an abomination - something that he must safeguard from the world. This has piqued the curiosity of many, though no one is sure how to separate the scroll from Ryze, or if it is possible to overcome the rogue mage to do so. Since then, Ryze has joined the League of Legends to study the magical creatures and powerful will-workers that fight there, in order to complete his exploration of mystical Runeterra.

With her mentor dead, Syndra felt the rush of her unbounded potential for the first time in years. Though she had won her freedom, she refused to return to the society that had tried to steal her gift. Instead, Syndra decided to claim her former prison as a stronghold. Pushing the boundaries of her magic, she tore the structure from its foundations and raised it into the sky.

No matter how close the authorities came to catching him, the rogue always found a way to slip through their fingers. Despite his good fortune, he was never able to win that which he truly desired - the ability to control magic. When Twisted Fate learned of an experiment being conducted in Zaun that might help him with his wish, he did the only thing a gambler of his worth could do - he went all in and volunteered for the experiment. Conducted by the infamous Dr. Xavier Rath, Twisted Fate was told that the wager for such participation might be steep. He might change forever, or nothing might happen, or he might die horribly. Pain, however, was likely a part of the deal no matter the outcome. These were hardly the worst odds the gambler had faced; his hopes raised, Twisted Fate underwent the experiment, enduring what he must for a chance at his dream. Then, it ended - with seemingly no effect whatsoever. The gypsy rogue flew into a murderous rage, but, before he could strike down the team, he suddenly teleported himself miles away. With a sly grin, he realized his luck had won out yet again. He now brings his luck and rakish charm to the Institute of War, where he is the Champion of choice for many - especially the gambling kind. To this day, Twisted Fate has avoided his inevitable reunion with Dr. Rath. The Card Master knows, however, that a confrontation is coming. While the future may be mysterious and unknown to most, Twisted Fate is certain that his future lies within the cards.

The easygoing half-pint race, though fierce, is often regarded with some degree of joviality. Their high-pitched voices and naturally cute forms inspire something of a protective instinct in the larger races, or at least bring to mind images of children playing at being adults. every now and again, however, a yordles turns so bad that, even at its small stature, it strikes terror into the hearts of others. Veigar is such a twisted yordle. As a master of the magical black arts, as well as a corruptor of cosmic energy, he is one of the most powerful sorcerers on Valoran. As a child, Veigar was a normal yordle with one small exception - he had a deep curiosity for the world beyond Bandle City. The young yordle spent much of his time studying the rest of Valoran, and he jumped at the chance to join a business that traded with other major city-states. Unfortunately for both him and the world, a deal with Noxian trader turned into shady business and went bad; Veigar and his companions were subsequently set up to take the fall. Arrested by the authorities, he was imprisoned within the walls of Noxus for years. Such isolation is very dangerous for yordles - undoubtedly why his cruel jailers did such a thing - and Veigar was slowly driven mad. He eventually escaped, having become a twisted version of his former self. Instead of returning to his people and Bandle City, he sought tutelage from dark wizards across the land. With his demented will focused on one task, he quickly became a dangerous and powerful wizard in his own right. Now he seeks to end all conflict on Valoran by bringing all of the city-states to their knees, regardless of their affiliation. The League of Legends is the perfect tool to help him meet his ends - for now. Who says evil needs to come in a fearsome-looking package?

This once-proud warrior has been disgraced by a false accusation and forced into a desperate fight for survival. With the world turned against him, he will do everything in his power to bring the guilty to justice and restore his honor. Formerly a brilliant pupil at a renowned Ionian sword school, Yasuo was the only student in a generation to master the legendary wind technique. Many believed he was destined to become a great hero. However, his fate was changed forever when Noxus invaded. Yasuo was charged with guarding an Ionian Elder, but, foolishly believing his blade alone could make the difference, he left his post to join the fray. By the time he returned, the Elder had been slain. Disgraced, Yasuo willingly turned himself in, prepared to pay for his failure with his life. He was shocked, however, to find himself accused not just of dereliction, but of the murder itself. Though confused and racked with guilt, he knew the assassin would go unpunished if he did not act. Yasuo raised his sword against the school and fought his way free, knowing his treason would turn all of Ionia against him. Left truly alone for the first time in his life, he set out to find the Elder's real killer. Yasuo spent the next several years wandering the land, seeking any clue that might lead him to the murderer. All the while, he was relentlessly hunted by his former allies, continually forced to fight or die. His mission drove him ever forward, until he was tracked down by the one foe he dreaded most – his own brother, Yone. Bound by a common code of honor, the two warriors bowed and drew their swords. Silently they circled one another under the moonlight. When they finally charged forward, Yone was no match for Yasuo; with a single flash of steel he cut his brother down. Yasuo dropped his weapon and rushed to Yone's side. Overcome with emotion, he demanded to know how his own kin could think him guilty. Yone spoke: “The Elder was killed by a wind technique. Who else could it be?” Understanding swept over Yasuo as he suddenly realized why he had been accused. He professed his innocence once more and begged his brother's forgiveness. Tears streamed down Yasuo's face as his brother passed in his arms. Yasuo buried Yone under the rising sun, but could take no time to mourn. Others would be after him before long. His brother's revelation had given Yasuo newfound purpose; he now had the clue that would lead to the true killer. Swearing an oath, he gathered his belongings and, with one last look at Yone's grave, set out with the wind at his back.

He defied his clan and master, casting off the balance and discipline that had shackled him all his life. Zed now offers power to those who embrace knowledge of the shadows, and slays those who cling to ignorance. An orphan, Zed was taken in and trained by a great ninja master. Only one other student appeared to be Zed's equal - the master's son, Shen. It seemed Zed could never win the favor of the master, as every match between the rivals ended in a draw. Frustrated and jealous, he sought an advantage. The young ninja ventured into a sealed part of the clan's temple, where he found an ornate, foreboding box. Sensing the dark knowledge within, Zed knew he should not open it, but he peered inside nonetheless. In an instant, shadows touched his mind, revealing techniques that had long been hidden. Now armed with a secret edge, he challenged Shen, and this time he defeated the master's son. He expected praise and recognition in his moment of victory, but somehow the master knew Zed had used forbidden ways, and banished him. Humiliated, the young ninja wandered for years. His bitterness turned to ambition, and he began to train others in the style of the shadows. As his power grew, so did his circle of followers, but he knew that without the box, his technique would never be perfect. One day, Zed looked at his followers and saw that his students were now an army. He led them back to the temple to claim his prize. At the gates, he was surprised to find the old master waiting, receiving Zed and his disciples as if they were welcome guests. The old man laid his sword at Zed's feet, declaring that he had failed Zed as his master. By banishing his former student, the master had doomed Zed to the shadows, instead of leading him to the balanced path. The old man implored Zed to enter the temple, destroy the box, and lead his followers to balance. The dark ninja followed the master inside. Moments later, the assembled ninjas heard Zed cry out in pain. Mysteriously, he emerged unscathed, and threw the severed head of the master at Shen's feet. Screaming in rage, Zed commanded his followers to slaughter the master's students and seize the box. That day, the old ninja order fell.

Aspiring to be a revered inventor like Heimerdinger, he rattled through ambitious projects with manic zeal, emboldened by both his explosive failures and his unprecedented discoveries. Word of Ziggs' volatile experimentation reached the famed Yordle Academy in Piltover and its esteemed professors invited him to demonstrate his craft. His characteristic disregard for safety brought the presentation to an early conclusion, however, when the hextech engine Ziggs was demonstrating overheated and exploded, blowing a huge hole in the wall of the Academy. The professors dusted themselves off and sternly motioned for him to leave. Devastated, Ziggs prepared to return to Bandle City in shame. However, before he could leave, a group of Zaunite agents infiltrated the Academy and kidnapped the professors. The Piltover military tracked the captives to a Zaunite prison, but their weapons were incapable of destroying the fortified walls. Determined to outdo them, Ziggs began experimenting on a new kind of armament, and quickly realized that he could harness his accidental gift for demolition to save the captured yordles. Before long, Ziggs had created a line of powerful bombs he lovingly dubbed "hexplosives." With his new creations ready for their first trial, Ziggs traveled to Zaun and snuck into the prison compound. He launched a gigantic bomb at the prison and watched with glee as the explosion tore through the reinforced wall. Once the smoke had cleared, Ziggs scuttled into the facility, sending guards running with a hail of bombs. He rushed to the cell, blew the door off its hinges, and led the captive yordles to freedom. Upon returning to the Academy, the humbled professors recognized Ziggs with an honorary title - Dean of Demolitions - and proposed that he demonstrate this new form of yordle ingenuity in the League of Legends. Vindicated at last, Ziggs accepted the proposal, eager to bring his ever-expanding range of hexplosives to the greatest testing grounds in the world: the Fields of Justice. "Ziggs?

[champion] => Array ( [champion_id] => 69 [display_name] => Karma [url_str] => karma [title] => The Enlightened One [key] => [description] => Even in her youth, Karma exhibited almost superhuman composure. While her peers explored the torrent of emotions that came with adolescence, Karma meditated in the Lotus Gardens. She was convinced that the true path to enlightenment was a journey inward, to a place within the self, overlooked by most. She exuded such inner contentment that she quickly became a go-to mediator and confidante in her village. Her instructors used to say: ''That girl can not only weather a storm, but calm it.'' Karma did not live extravagantly; her parents owned a local business selling antiques in the Navori province and they often struggled to provide for themselves, though they did so with cheery optimism. Her most prized possessions were two exquisite fans taken from her family's shop. When Noxian troops invaded southern Ionia, her village was one of the first to fall. The villages who survived the assault were captured by Noxian forces. It was then that Karma found her calling. By exploiting the insecurities of the Noxian commander, she negotiated the safe release of the villages to the northern lands. She was present at the Placidium, where the Elders had considered surrender until Irelia's impassioned last stand renewed the Ionian's hope. Karma used this hope to solidify the Elders' commitment to remain defiant against the Noxian onslaught. For her devotion and charisma, Karma was made the figurehead of the Ionian resistance. She never compromised, and she shared every hardship with her people, even when it came to combat. By tapping into her inner resilience, she discovered that she could bring great force to bear against her foes on the battlefield. She modified her fans into lethal implements, and was tutored by Janna to enhance their effects. The Noxians called her, ''The Enlightened One,'' a nickname she embraced, and one which they would come to dread. She joined the League to represent Ionia in the ultimate political arena. "Her fan technique is a deadly art of grace and poise, but her truest strength lies in the hearts of those willing to die alongside her." -Irelia [spotlight_embed_url] => https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lWIj3IRz8DI [role] => Mage [defense_rating] => 7 [magic_rating] => 8 [attack_rating] => 1 [difficulty_rating] => 5 [damage_rating] => 2 [mobility_rating] => 1 [cc_rating] => 2 [toughness_rating] => 1 [utility_rating] => 2 [health] => 522 [health_increase] => 0 [mana] => 374 [mana_increase] => 0 [movement_speed] => 335 [armor] => 20.4 [armor_increase] => 0 [magic_resistance] => 30 [magic_resistance_increase] => 0 [attack_damage] => 53.5 [attack_damage_increase] => 0 [critical_strike] => 0 [critical_strike_increase] => 0 [health_regeneration] => 5.6 [health_regeneration_increase] => 0 [mana_regeneration] => 8.5 [mana_regeneration_increase] => 0 [attack_range] => 525 [attack_speed] => 0.625 [ability_power] => 0 [ability_power_18] => 0 [attack_speed_18] => 0.869 [health_18] => 1933 [mana_18] => 1224 [movement_speed_18] => 335 [armor_18] => 85 [magic_resistance_18] => 38.5 [attack_damage_18] => 109.6 [critical_strike_18] => 0 [health_regeneration_18] => 15 [mana_regeneration_18] => 22.1 [attack_range_18] => 525 [tip_playing_as] => *Gathering Fire rewards aggressive play.

Malhazar was born a seer, blessed with the gift of prophecy. His talent, though unrefined, promised to be one of Runeterra's greatest boons, but destiny plotted him another course; his sensitivity to the roiling tides of fate allowed other, unwelcome things to tug at his subconscious mind. In his dreams, where the veil of separation is thinnest, a sinister thing beckoned. For some time, Malzahar was able to resist its prodding solicitation, but with each passing night the voice grew louder, or perhaps deeper, until he could withstand the call no more. He ventured into the desert without supplies, drawn by the lure of a specious charm. His destination: a lost civilization to the east, known to ancient texts as Icathia. Few believed such a place ever existed, and those who did were certain that the sands had long since devoured whatever remained. When Malzahar's cracked feet finally failed him, he found himself kneeling at the base of a bizarre crumbling obelisk. Beyond it lay the alien geometry of a ruined city and the giant decaying idols of dark and horrific gods. His eyes, seeing what others cannot, and what none should, were filled with the essence of the Void. His once shifting visions of the future were replaced with the immutable promise of Valoran beset by creatures of the Void. Standing alone, but not alone, amidst the echoing dunes, he noticed the familiar voice escape his own lips in a parched rasp, bearing three words whose weight trembled his knees. League of Legends. Now infused with the power of the void itself, Malzahar set off to the north to seek his fate.

Those that fought against them saw their kin as tyrants, creatures incapable of seeing the larger view, who would sacrifice individuality and freedom for the illusion of efficiency and safety. Morgana was one who fought against what she perceived as the tyranny of her kind, and for that she was branded ''fallen.''

As the years passed, the animal population steadily died off. Food became increasingly scarce, and Zyra could only stand by helplessly as the last of her kin withered away. She thought she would perish alone, until the appearance of an unwary sorceress presented her with an opportunity for salvation. It was the first time in years Zyra had sensed a creature wander so close. Hunger drew her to the sorceress, but some other, deeper instinct compelled her. She enveloped the woman in thorns with ease, but as she savored this final meal, foreign memories invaded her thoughts. She saw great jungles of metal and stone where humans and animals thrived. Potent magic surged through her vines, and she devised an elegant but risky plan to survive. Using the woman's memories, Zyra poured her newfound magic into the creation of a human-shaped vessel. She didn't know what sort of world awaited her, but she had nothing left to lose. When Zyra opened her eyes, she was overwhelmed by the raw power ready at her fingertips. It wasn't until she noticed the shriveled remains of the plant she once was that she realized how vulnerable she had become.

What yordles lack in stature, they make up for with industriousness. Corki, the Daring Bombardier, gained his title by test-piloting one of these contributions - the original design for the Reconnaissance Operations Front-Line Copter, an aerial assault vehicle which has become the backbone of the Bandle City Expeditionary Force (BCEF). Together with his squadron - the Screaming Yipsnakes - Corki soars over Valoran, surveying the landscape and conducting aerial acrobatics for the benefit of onlookers below. Corki is the most renowned of the Screaming Yipsnakes for remaining cool under fire and exhibiting bravery to the point of madness. Before the League, he served several tours of duty, often volunteering for missions that would take him behind enemy lines, either gathering intelligence or delivering messages through hot zones. He thrived on danger, and enjoyed nothing more than a good dogfight in the morning. More than just an ace pilot, Corki also made several modifications to his copter, outfitting it with an arsenal of weapons which some speculate were more for show than functionality. When open hostilities ceased as part of the agreement surrounding the formation of the League, Corki was forced into a retirement, which he felt ''cut the engines and clipped the wings''. He tried to make do with stunt flying and canyon running, but it was never the same without the refreshing smell of gunpowder streaking through the air around him. When Heimerdinger joined the League of Legends, it was no surprise to see Corki follow soon after, eager to test his mettle against the best the world has to offer. He is Corki - death from above!

He remembers no family, warmth, or kindness. Instead, the clink of stolen gold and the security of a wall at his back are all the kinship he has ever craved. Kept alive only by his quick wits and deft thievery, Talon scraped out a living in the seedy underbelly of Noxus. His mastery of the blade quickly marked him as a threat, and Noxian guilds sent assassins to him with a demand: join their ranks or be killed. He left the bodies of his pursuers dumped in Noxus' moat as his response. The assassination attempts grew increasingly dangerous until one assailant met Talon blade-for-blade in a match of strength. To his surprise, Talon was disarmed and facing down his executioner's sword when the assassin revealed himself to be General Du Couteau. The General offered Talon the choice between death at his hand, or life as an agent of the Noxian High Command. Talon chose life, on the condition that his service was to Du Couteau alone, for the only type of orders he could respect were from one he could not defeat. Talon remained in the shadows, carrying out secret missions on Du Couteau's orders that took him from the frigid lands of Freljord to the inner sanctums of Bandle City. When the general vanished, Talon considered reclaiming his freedom, but he had gained immense respect for Du Couteau after years in his service. He became obsessed with tracking down the general's whereabouts. Talon's suspicions led him to the doors of the Institute of War, where he joined the League of Legends in order to find those responsible for Du Couteau's disappearance.

My eyes adjust and evaluate the landscape before me. There's a scurrying. I look down to find a small, white creature standing on its hind legs, sniffing at my body. It intrigues me. What use are you? I analyze the creature. A flash of hot magenta light, a dust pile where it was quivering. Mammalian... nocturnal... impeccable hearing. Incredibly weak. Yet they breed so prodigiously. "Hm," I mutter to myself. Hopefully there will be more complex things to be found; those fascinate me. Consume and learn: this is my purpose. The others who travel with me are primitive: kill and eat, kill and eat. I need to gather all available information - harvest any valuable resources. Eventually, we come upon a destroyed city, save for one pristine tower. It appears to be protected - or intentionally left standing. I deconstruct the composition of the ruins. My analysis suggests this habitat was a place of great magic; I'm not surprised it was a target of such destruction. There is something compelling about the tower. While the others are off scavenging, I enter the citadel. Cryptic instruments are strewn about. I examine one. Another flash of hot magenta light, another dust pile. Fascinating: a tool to alter their concept of time. Strange. Unprecedented. From the state of the tower, it seems the owner departed only recently. The artifacts left behind have existed in more than one time and place. Some are more complex than others; all are more impressive than anything I have seen on this plane. Clearly, the owner knows things I have not encountered in any of my travels. I require such knowledge. Leaving the tower, I find the others closing in on the entrance, ready to destroy it as they have destroyed everything else we have met. They will only get in the way of my goal. There are some things the Void should not consume indiscriminately. Without warning, I lash out a tentacle, its tip glowing white hot. Lightning arcs through the first creature, knocking it back. Its screams fade as I extend all three limbs, energy crackling between them, scorching the air where the streams meet. The other two run; they know what's coming. Must they always flee? I open my eye wide and unleash a beam of energy, following the escaping creatures. They are instantly reduced to ash. "Hmm. Void-native melting point is inconsistent," I note. But that is of no consequence. The hunger inside me grows. I am ravenous. Insatiable, as never before. I have glimpsed the ultimate knowledge. And I will have it.

The area surrounding the temple is littered with the exsanguinated corpses of those who have mistakenly wandered too close. These served only to pique the curiosity of Vladimir, when - in his youth - he trekked through these mountains during his flight from Noxus. A day earlier, the teenaged Vladimir had brutally murdered two boys his age, for no better reason than to enjoy the intoxicating scarlet bloom that surged forth. He realized immediately that he would never be able to suppress his murderous desires, and if he remained in Noxus, his foul deeds were sure to catch up with him. Without hesitation, he abandoned the city-state, and journeyed south. The trail of bodies led him to a crumbling stone temple. Inside he found an aging monk who appraised him with eyes of pure crimson. Vladimir surprised the monk by returning the wicked gaze with zeal. Recognizing the boy's sinister craving, the monk taught Vladimir how to manipulate and control the fluid of life, often practicing on passing travelers. When it came time for Vladimir to learn the final lesson, the monk warned that failure would result in death. Vladimir did not fail, but success bore a grisly surprise. During the ritual, every drop of the monk's blood was drawn from his body and fused with Vladimir's, imbuing him with his master's magical essence, and that of every hemomancer before him. Left alone and suddenly without purpose, Vladimir resolved to return to Noxus, demanding enrolment in the League to prove the supremacy of his craft. When the Noxian High Command observed the gruesome fates which befell the palace guards, they elected to avail themselves of Vladimir's unsavory talents.

He attended Zaun's prestigious College of Techmaturgy and led the team that constructed Blitzcrank - a scientific breakthrough that he expected to vault him to the top of his profession. Unfortunately his triumph was usurped by Professor Stanwick, who stole credit for developing Blitzcrank's sentience and later used Viktor's research to revive Urgot. Viktor's appeals for justice fell on deaf ears, and he sank into a deep depression. He withdrew from the College and barricaded himself in his private laboratory, cutting all human ties. There, in secret, he conceived a project for which nobody else could claim credit. Desiring both to revolutionize his field and to eliminate the jealous human emotions which festered inside him, he engineered parts to replace and improve his own body. When Viktor re-emerged, almost no trace of the original man remained. Not only had he supplanted the majority of his anatomy, but his personality had changed. His previous hope to better society was replaced by an obsession with what he called ''the glorious evolution.'' He saw himself as the patron and pioneer of Valoran's future - a future in which man would renounce his flesh in favor of superior hextech augmentations. Though Viktor's initial appeals were met with heavy skepticism, scientists were confounded by the sophistication of his machinery. By integrating his mind with techmaturgical devices, he had been able to drastically accelerate the progress of his research. His transformation had stripped him of what he perceived as his emotional weaknesses, but there was some lingering residue of resentment against the Professor. Viktor joined the League of Legends to pit his inventions against the greatest opponents Valoran could offer, and to correct any weaknesses or inefficiencies that remained.

Introduction



PLEASE READ: In the last year or so I have started medical school and have almost no time at all to play League of Legends. HOWEVER, I still closely follow the meta and WILL keep this guide updated as often as possible. Thanks for your understanding.

Welcome to my Mobafire guide on Cassiopeia, one of the hardest yet most rewarding champions to play in League of Legends. My name is Xavier Senori, and I am an S5 Diamond Cassiopeia main. Cassiopeia is an incredibly high skill cap AP champion who can put out the highest single target DPS in the game. She is tough to play and even harder to master because she is highly dependent on skillshots and positioning. One wrong move and your DPS drops considerably. Furthermore, correct or incorrect use of her ultimate, Petrifying Gaze, can singlehandedly win you or lose you games. This being said, if you are willing to put the time and effort into learning her, she will reward you beyond your wildest dreams. A good Cassiopeia can heavily influence the outcome of a game. A great Cassiopeia is absolutely terrifying and can easily carry the game by herself.

I have been playing Cassiopeia since season one, and have played more games with her than I can count. During season 5, I used her almost exclusively to climb to diamond in 36 games. I have heavily theorycrafted with regards to item build, runes, masteries, matchups, etc and know the intricacies and little known nuances about Cassiopeia than even some of the better Cassiopeia player still don't know. I hope that you can use this guide to improve your Cassiopeia game by learning exactly why this champion is so incredibly strong when played correctly and efficiently.

In the recent patches, Cassiopeia's gameplay has changed dramatically. With a new passive, the grounding utility of her W, the less punishing E, and overall skill cooldown changes, her item build and power curve have shifted. However, what remains true is that she is still an incredibly strong harasser, dueler, and roamer.

Pros / Cons




Pros

+ Highest DPS in game
+ Great utility
+ Strong 1v2
+ Ult wins games
+ Hyper carry scaling
+ Great baron/dragon DPS
+ Extremely rewarding
Cassiopeia is a decent pick in S7 solo queue due to her high DPS and utility. She works best against non dive heavy team comps and with teams that can protect and peel for her. In teamfights, if not killed immediately, she can often put out more DPS than the rest of her team combined due to low cooldown high damage E and Q spam. Her late game damage potential is unparalleled. Furthermore, her dragon and baron DPS are insane, allowing for the rapid taking of these objectives at any point.


Cons

+ Very squishy
+ Requires great positioning
+ High skillcap
+ Weaker early game
+ Dependent on farm
+ No escape
+ Mana issues early on
+ Easily focused
Cassiopeia is incredibly hard to play well. This is because she is an AP champion that plays like an adc. She is very skillshot and position dependent, especially in teamfights. If you die early in a teamfight your team loses out on a huge portion of its potential damage, as you do damage over time, not burst damage. She is incredibly susceptible to early jungle ganks because she has no natural escape. On top of this, her early game is weaker due to high mana cost abilities. Finally, as with most AP carries she is rather squishy, especially early on, so she runs the risk of getting bursted down easily.

Runes




Sorcery/Inspiration is my preferred build on Cassiopeia. This set just synergies really well with her kit. Sorcery/Domination with Taste of Blood/ Cheap Shot and Ravenous Hunter is definitely another really viable option if you don't want to worry about minion dematerializer. Pick based on personal preference. If you want to play more aggressively go with the domination build, if you want more utility, go with the inspiration build.



Sorcery - Tier 1



Phase Rush is the only really viable option here. Not only does it really supplement Cassio's kit by letting you stick to your prey, escape, and kite, but it also gives you resistance to slows, which can be used defensively. This rune just synergizes too well with her kit to not use. Summon Aery is viable, but Cassio's abilities are spammed too often to really make it an efficient choice.





Sorcery - Tier 2



Manaflow Band is easily the best choice here. Her early game is plagued with mana issues due to her high cost spammy abilities. She needs this rune to really be present during the early game and not become irrelevant from the get go. This single rune solves a lot of the mana issues she had been experiencing during previous seasons and is a huge, but often ignored buff to this snake. Because of her low cooldown abilities, it is very easy to stack this rune quickly.

Nullifying Orb is a very niche option that I rarely run only when up against certain very bursty AP champions like Veigar and LeBlanc. You will have to play more conservatively with your mana as a result of not having manaflow band, but it will pay of when you repeatedly make it out alive in unfavorable encounters.





Sorcery - Tier 3



Celerity is generally the best option here. Cassio's absolutely loves movement speed, as she has no escape of her own and needs it for everything from engaging, to kiting, to chasing her victims. Bonus AP off of MS scales well with her as her Q and passive already give crazy amounts of bonus MS.

Transcendence is a viable choice, as her standard build doesn't max out her CDR. However, CDR doesn't scale well with Cassio as she already has very low CD spammy abilities, and she will never get use from the bonus adaptive armor, as she will never go above 40% CDR.





Sorcery - Tier 4



Scorch is likely the best option here because of Cassio's already existent DoT-like nature. The burn is nice and adds a lot of DPS to her early game via poke damage. While it's use is limited later on in teamfights due to its hefty 20s cooldown, it really shines during the laning phase. Take this against mid matchups that you can poke heavily, in games where there will likely not be a late game, or if you plan to combine it with Liandry's Torment for a late game poke comp.

Waterwalking is a very solid option if you see the opportunity to roam a lot. If your enemy mid laner is someone like Zoe for example who pushes very slowly during the early game, you may consider running this run to push lane and gank. This rune has the added bonus of giving you bonus stats for taking objectives like scuttle crab, baron, and dragon, which is nice.

Gathering Storm is my personal favorite rune to take on Cassio when I know the game wont be determined early on. While her early game can be really strong, she really shines as a late game monster. Her scaling is bonkers, and this rune only accentuates that strength. If the enemy team comp is unlikely to allow for a late game to happen, this may not be your best choice, but overall this is my default rune for this slot.





Inspiration



Time Warp Tonic really improves your sustain in lane. The extra healing with potions is bonkers, especially if you invest in an early Refillable Potion, which you should. Definitely pick this up if you want to out sustain the enemy mid laner, or like staying topped off against bursty champions.

Minion Dematerializer really helps Cassio's early game. Her mana costs are really high, and pushing lane can be costly, especially if you are being shoved in by a hard pusing champion like malzahar. Chose this rune when you need your spells to go the extra mile in killing minions, whether this be to push the enemy mid laner in so that you can roam, or simply to keep the enemy minions from crashing into your tower. The mana this rune saves can not be underestimated.

Perfect Timing is another really solid option. This rune allows you to play aggressively, dive, and/or escape in certain situations. If you are playing against a heavy AD team or an AD mid, pick this rune up if you plan to build into zhonya's as if will save you some gold.

Spells



Summoner Spells




Flash: Standard summoner spell for most mid champions. It is a get out of jail free card, a re-positioning spell, and can be used both offensively or defensively. Cassiopeia has no natural escape, and has no blink, dash, teleport of any kind. She absolutely needs this spell to function.

Ignite: Secondary summoner spell that most mid AP carries run, Cassiopeia being no exception. Your goal as Cassiopeia is to carry your team and secure kills. This spell allows you to do this. It is also a great to have for its healing reduction. Don't take against hard matchups.

Teleport: I like to take this when playing a more defensive lane, when playing top lane, when I plan to build tanky with RoA, when my top laner doesn't take Teleport, or when I know my lane opponent is going to play really safe. It allows you to teleport to your lane, or any other lane as a gank, a counter gank, or to defend a turret. More importantly, you can show up at any time to objectives like dragon.



Exhaust: Cassiopeia already puts out ludicrous damage late game, so I often opt for this spell over Ignite. It helps save you from aggro mids, jungle ganks, and allows you to protect your teammates in teamfights. I pick this often against dive comps, like those with Irelia, Jax, etc, or against specific champions like Yasuo.

Barrier: Run this summoner spell when up against burst mid laners like LeBlanc or Zed or burst enemy team comps. Unlike Exhaust, this summoner spell can be used to mitigate damage even when the enemies are untargettable, out of range, or moving/dashing too quickly to click on. It can also be used in conjunction with Seraph's Embrace to bait out enemy engages.

Cleanse: Run this when up against a CC team, or specific CC that will surely ruin your day. I take this against champs like Brand who plan to stun, ignite, and burn you with their passive, all of which can be instantly cleansed, leaving them helpless and at your mercy. Against long CC like Fiddlesticks jungle or Morgana support I sometimes take this as well.

Abilities






Serpentine Grace: Cassiopeia cannot purchase boots, but instead gains 4 - 72 (based on level) bonus movement speed, for a total of 332 - 400 (based on level) movement speed. Following her recent rework, this has become Cassiopeia's new passive. This passive allows you to forgo boots and buy a 6th item instead, making her potentially the strongest late game AP carry.

Tips and Tricks
  • You cannot purchase boots, which means you have an extra 6th item slot!
  • The scaling on this passive is a bit slow early game, hence why we run 2X Greater Quintessence of Movement Speed. If we don't, the enemy mid laner will temporarily outscale her speed as soon as they buy boots.
  • Cassiopeia has 400 movement speed (not counting items) at level 18.



Noxious Blast: After a 0.4-second delay, Cassiopeia blasts the target area with Noxious Poison, dealing magic damage every second for 3 seconds to all enemies it hits. Cassiopeia gains bonus movement speed that decays over 3 seconds if Noxious Blast hits an enemy champion. Your harassment, escape, and Twin Fang enabler tool. It is a bit expensive during the early game, but does much more damage then it used to. Use this skill to poison minions before killing them with your E for easy last hitting.

Tips and Tricks
  • Use Noxious Blast to check bushes. An icon will pop up above your skillbar informing you that you have received your increased movement speed buff if you happen to have hit a hidden enemy in the bush.
  • The 0.4 sec cast time early game requires you to predict where your opponent will be. A good tip is to wait till you opponent stops to auto attack a minion to Q under him, guaranteeing a hit.
  • When running away, continuously spam this on the chasing enemies to increase your movement speed. Don't underestimate the utility of this spell.
  • With 40% CDR, the cooldown drops to 2.1 seconds!
  • Use this skill for the damage, but even more importantly, for the utility it provides.
  • At max level, this ability offers a temporary increase in movement speed of 50%!
  • With the recent rework, damage has been shifted into this skill, making it more appealing as a damaging skill. However, the mana costs early game are high, so you usually want to max E first anyway.
  • Poisoned enemies now have an audio effect that you can hear. It sounds like repeated clicking every time a poison tick goes off.
  • Noxious Blast does not reveal you when you are in the brush.



Miasma: Cassiopeia spits forth eight bolts of venom in an arc, leaving toxic clouds of Debilitating Poison where they hit the ground for 5 seconds. Debilitating Poison deals magic damage to enemies standing upon it every second, also grounding them and applying a slow that decays over the area's duration. Miasma has a minimum cast range. This is your second way of poisoning your target. If you miss your Q, drop this on the enemy to insure that they stay poisoned until your Q cooldown is up.

Tips and Tricks
  • A unit that is grounded cannot activate mobility spells, including flash and all dashing/blinking abilities.
  • Because this ability has a minimum range, you can no longer drop it on top of yourself in order to fend off an enemy that is diving/on top of you.
  • This ability can go over walls.
  • Miasma no longer gives you vision.
  • When you miss your Q, smart enemies will try to come in to harass you during your Q cooldown. Surprise them by dropping Miasma on them and beginning your E spam. Remember, you have two ways of poisoning opponents.
  • One Q+W combo will poison the caster minions on the backline and set them up for killing with E.
  • Use Miasma to zone the enemy mid laner by effectively removing a part of the lane that they can use or to save yourself from a gank.
  • The slow is significant, but the damage is not. Use this skill mostly for its utility, not for its damage.
  • Miasma does not reveal you when you are in the brush.
  • Drop this right in front of fleeing enemies with movement abilities to either force them to flash over it or stop them from escaping.



Twin Fang: Cassiopeia launches her fangs at the target enemy, dealing them 52 - 120 (based on level) (+ 10% AP) magic damage. If the target is poisoned, Twin Fang deals bonus magic damage and heals Cassiopeia. If Twin Fang kills its target, it refunds its mana cost. Your bread and butter skill. Spam this skill on poisoned targets to nuke them down. If you land it on a non-poisoned target it pretty much does zero damage, however, it doesn't go on a lengthy cooldown like it used to.

Tips and Tricks
  • If the target is poisoned, Twin Fang deals bonus magic damage and heals Cassiopeia for a significant amount.
  • The healing counts as spellvamp and thus benefits from items such as Spirit Visage
  • Even in a losing fight, keep spamming this on poisoned targets, the spellvamp can keep you alive for longer than you expect!
  • Look for the "poisoned" icon above enemies to double check that your Twin Fang will be hitting a poisoned enemy.
  • Don't use this in lane (except when last hitting with it) if the enemy isn't poisoned. It does almost no damage in this scenario and isn't worth the mana cost.
  • You can spam this on enemies affected by Twitch, Singed, Teemo, or even Gromp poisons for the full damage effect.
  • Try to always last hit minions with this skill (even if they aren't poisoned), as it returns the cost.
  • Twin Fang reveals you when you are in the brush, so do not cast this on an enemy when you are trying to use bushes as an escape.



Petrifying Gaze: After a brief delay, Cassiopeia blasts enemies in a cone in the target direction, dealing magic damage to all enemies hit. Enemies facing Cassiopeia are stunned for 2 seconds upon being hit by Petrifying Gaze, and all other affected enemies are instead slowed by 40% for the same duration. A incredibly powerful and potentially amazing AoE stun ultimate. Most useful in defensive situations where you can guarantee the enemy will be facing you, or during re-engages. Even if you miss the stun, the Rylai's Crystal Scepter enhanced AoE slow is almost as good.

Tips and Tricks
  • Camp bushes you know enemies have to pass through in order to guarantee the stun.
  • Don't be afraid of ulting an enemy facing away from you, the damage and slow are still incredibly strong.
  • Sometimes it is best to hold off on ulting early on in teamfights. Using Petrifying Gaze as a re-engagement tool can sometimes be even more effective.
  • Try to land this on both the jungler and the enemy mid when you are getting ganked to ensure a getaway or a 1 for 1 trade.
  • You can ult then flash mid-ult to Petrifying Gaze anyone in the direction you flashed regardless of where you were facing. This effectively removes the cast time and can easily catch people off guard.
  • Reveals you in the brush.


General Skilling Order


> > >


Ability Sequence
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18

This is the skill order I take in most of my games. Max Twin Fang first because it is your main damage dealer and costs less then Q. Max Noxious Blast second as additional damage. Take Miasma at level 4 for its utility (slow, grounding, and backup poison), but max it last. Start with Q at level one to scout bushes for potential invades, or E at level one if a lvl 1 teamfight is imminent.


Ability Sequence
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18

Maxing Noxious Blast over Twin Fang first is very situational. I only ever do this when I want to farm from a distance and/or when I don't want to trade with the enemy mid laner. A fed mid laner, or a scary burst champion like LeBlanc might merit going this route so you can farm from a safer distance.

Main Combos





Standard harassing combo. Depending on how close you are to your enemy and whether they are running away or not, you may only be able to get in two Twin Fangs between Noxious Blasts. Cassiopeia's auto attacks are very responsive and very strong. Weave them into your combo to maximize damage.


-> -> -> ->


Use this combo when you catch someone walking into a bush in which you are camping out. Drop miasma before the ult to maximize the amount of time that they are standing in it and thus the amount of damage they are taking. Weave in auto attacks and ignite if necessary.




Use this combo when you miss your initial Noxious Blast and require the enemy to be poisoned before starting your Twin Fang spam. Your Noxious Blast should be back up again after two Twin Fangs.


-> -> -> ->


Use this combo to initiate or during teamfights. Save your Petrifying Gaze for the most opportune moment, either as an engagement, disengagement, or peeling tool.

Items



Starting Items




Starting with Corrupting Potion is the best option right now. The extra mana + burn, along with no longer having to buy health pots really makes this a solid pick. Combined with The Dark Seal, its efficiency gets even higher.

Doran's Ring + 2x Health Potions is a solid start as well. Its hard to get early kills due to lack of mana, but the extra health is strong against unfavorable matchups or burst champs.





First Buys




The Dark Seal should be your first buy when you are even in lane or ahead. The additional mana plus interaction with Corrupting Potion plus possibility of stacking the passive helps secure the early game for you. If you are behind, skip this item, as you can't afford to dump gold into it, and instead should focus on acquiring your core item (to start stacking them) first. Unless you are steamrolling the enemy team, do not upgrade this to Mejai's Soulstealer, just sell it later.

Tear of the Goddess is an exceptional item on Cassiopeia. This is because she has some serious early game mana problems that can be remedied by simply buying this item. On top of that, as Cassiopeia it is incredibly easy to max out, as your skills are spammable. I buy this item first or right after The Dark Seal in pretty much every single one of my games. The shield that you eventually get from Seraph's Embrace has saved me more times than I can count.


Your first major item should always be Tear of the Goddess because Cassiopeia has huge mana problems early on, even with proper E management. This item solves this issue for the most part. Like Catalyst of Aeons, Tear of the Goddess sets you behind the enemy mid laner because it offers no real offensive stats while you sit on it, but it pays off when you can get Seraph's Embrace, which gives you huge offensive stats and kill potential.

After Tear of the Goddess, your next buy should be Catalyst of Aeons. This item's health and mana regen will make laning phase much easier on you, but will set you further behind your lane opponent because it also offers no offensive stats. Do not worry though, this deficit won't last for long!





Early Game




Upgrade your Catalyst of Aeons to Rod of Ages when not up against a heavy AP enemy team comp. Do this ASAP so that you begin stacking it as soon as possible, making you tankier earlier in the game. The additional AP finally adds some offensive power to your build.

Instead of building RoA, upgrade to Abyssal Mask when up against a heavy AP team comp, especially if the jungler and the mid laner are both AP champs. You exchange a bit of health and mana for a huge boost in magic resistance. Damage is pretty much the same between the two.



PLEASE NOTE: Since patch 8.6, Abyssal Mask's aura has been reduced to practically melee range, making this part of the item much less valuable on this champ. I still believe it is a viable option over RoA when you really need the magic resistance, its just not as amazing as it used to be.



Pick up a Seeker's Armguard if you are struggling against an enemy AD champion and eventually plan to build a Zhonya's Hourglass. I'm not a huge fan of Zhonya's Hourglass because it takes an incredibly mobile champion who need to weave in and out of a teamfight and makes them immobile for a few seconds. However, buying this item early could mean the difference between getting bursted down by a Zed or Talon during laning.

If you are up against a bursty AP or AD champ, you may want to rush an early Null-Magic Mantle or Negatron Cloak. You lose out of the offensive and utility capabilities of other early game damage items but at least you won't die. These build into Banshee's Veil or Abyssal Mask later anyway. Going this route can be very beneficial if you are getting bullied in lane, as survivability during your weaker early game is key.





Mid Game Core Build



You eventually want to upgrade your Tear of the Goddess into Seraph's Embrace. This usually means that I am picking this item up right after finishing RoA/Abyssal. Once you get this item, your damage sky rockets, and you get an amazing active that has saved me countless times. This item can be rushed if you are getting bursted down often.


Seraph's Embrace gives you a hefty DPS boost while also giving you a massive mana pool and an amazing active. The bonus AP is nice, but it is the mana that really makes this item shine. I often have max stacks on it at 16-20 minutes. I sometimes chose to upgrade it early into Seraph's Embrace, getting a massive damage boost, not to mention incredible lane staying power.

Most games, I go Tear of the Goddess into Rod of Ages/ Abyssal Mask into Seraph's Embrace into Liandry's Torment + Rylai's Crystal Scepter or Rabadon's Deathcap + Void Staff. I then build whatever items my team needs or I need to survive and/or push our lead.

One thing to note is that Cassiopeia requires some sort of health item to keep her alive in engagements. Cassiopeia cannot afford to die early on in teamfights because she is not a burst champion, she is a DPS machine. Thus, you need either Seraph's Embrace shield, Rod of Ages/ Abyssal Mask, Rylai's Crystal Scepter, or some combination of these to fulfill her HP needs. Do note that Rod of Ages into Rylai's Crystal Scepter takes a long time to build, and though it will make you very tanky, it offers much less damage than other builds and may put you really far behind. If your team is going to need significant damage output early on, you don't want to rush these two items consecutively because it will leave you lacking the DPS your team might need during the early game. However, if you are are isolated in top lane and aren't going to be needed anytime soon, this build has some merit.





Late Game Items



Void Staff is really strong on Cassiopeia, especially after enemies start stacking more than 100 MR. Because of the plentiful MR item choices in the game at the moment, high MR enemy teams is going to be common. If I am winning lane really hard and don't need survivability, I will sometimes pick this item up right after Rod of Ages and Seraph's Embrace. If it's time to build this item, but there is very little MR on the enemy team, build Rabadon's Deathcap or some other offensive item first instead.

Rabadon's Deathcap is strong, but it increases your AP based on the bonus AP you already have. Early game, when you don't have many AP items, you get little out of this item's passive. However, this item synergizes incredible well with Cassiopeia's 6 item, high AP scaling. If I am winning lane really hard and don't need survivability, I will sometimes pick this item up early on. If it's time to build this item, but some members of the enemy team have high MR, build Void Staff instead.

Rylai's Crystal Scepter synergizes well with Cassiopeia. The slow makes it very easy to land your Qs. On top of this, Rylai's Crystal Scepter gives her AP and a nice chunk of health that she needs to keep from getting bursted down. Rylai's Crystal Scepter also works well with Liandry's Torment. Every one of your skills will proc and double Liandry's Torment's movement-impaired burn. This means that you can burn away approximately 10% of an enemy's health with just one spell via the burn alone. With recent nerfs, this item has fallen a bit out of favor, but is definitely still a viable options, especially when looking for a little HP boost.

Buy this item when playing against a high health, tanky enemy team, and usually only in combination with Rylai's Crystal Scepter, as you need the slow to proc the double burn. The recent changes in 8.4 make this item a very solid option on cassiopeia, perhaps even core. The magic pen was removed which is a bummer, but it was replaced with a ramping percent damage, which is really nice as you aren't a burst mage and should expect to be in prolonged combat situations often.

I have mixed emotions about this item. This item is a great purchase against heavy AD team comps or if you feel confident that you can zhonya's a heavy hitting enemy skill. However, because Cassiopeia has no escape, 90% of the time, the active only prolongs your inevitable death. On champions with long cooldowns like Lux that blow their load and then have to wait for their abilities to come back up, this item can be very beneficial because you can wait out your cooldowns during the active. Unfortunately with Cassiopeia you are wasting DPS time using the active. With the recent nerfs in patch 5.13, I favor this item even less now, since it offers less AP.

This item had major changes in patch 8.4 and, while no longer core, is still a very viable option. Purchase this item mid/late game when up against heavy healing team comps like Soraka + Vlad. Obviously you no longer have the CDR that it used to offer, which is a bummer, but the new healing reduction passive is always active instead of only being active below 35% HP, which is a game changer against heal heavy champions.

You pick this item up usually during the mid/late game. It makes you much harder to kill, especially for enemy AP or burst champs. By the time you get this item, you should be near 40% CDR without blue buff. This item is a very solid option on Cassiopeia because she doesn't really have a solid escape. If she gets engaged upon, its pretty much GG for her unless you land a godly ult. Thus, the shield this item provides is invaluable for this champion. Buy this when enemy AP champs are becoming a problem and/or against heavy engage team comps.

The recent 8.4 changes to this item made it much less viable on Cassiopeia as it has turned more into an early game pressure item than a sustained damage item and has lost its movement speed boost (which this champion LOVED). Cassiopeia can't really afford to be building anything outside of the standard RoA/Abyssal + Seraph's early game. As such, buying this item early for the pressure delays your core build, and that's a no no. Perhaps this item can be of some use late game when looking to build more bursty.

I get this item as a defensive 5th or 6th item more often than Zhonya's Hourglass. Like I've mentioned before, Cassiopeia is highly susceptible to burst damage and gap closers. You dying early in a teamfight can spell disaster for your team, as they lose out on a massive portion of their damage. This item effectively allows you to cheat death and live after the enemy team has wasted their cooldowns trying to gib you.


Overall, Cassiopeia is incredibly flexible. Even her core items can be altered on occasion. As always, don't build the same way every game, adapt to the situation at hand. Furthermore, this is simply the best way that I have found of building Cassiopeia. There are certainly many other effective and potentially even better ways of building her.

Gameplay




Early Game


  • Focus on last hitting poisoned minions above all else. Your primary goal is to farm and make gold.
  • Once you have Tear of the Goddess farm the wraith and wolves camp whenever your jungler isn't around.
  • Use your Miasma to zone the enemy mid laner.
  • An easy and effective way to land your Noxious Blast is to wait for your lane opponent to come up for a cs. They have to stand still for a second to auto attack the minions, making it incredibly easy to land your Noxious Blast. This will take some practice though, as you need to be watching the HP of the enemy minions AND your own to know when they will come in.
  • Cassiopeia's auto attacks are very responsive. Whenever you land a Noxious Blast on your opponent you can follow it up with an auto attack.
  • Don't be scared of flashing in for kills as long as you don't end up under the enemy tower. You should of course try to kill the enemy, however forcing them to flash and pushing them out of lane is almost as good.
  • Ward both river bushes, or if you only have one ward, ward one side and stick to it. If you blow flash to escape a gank, stop being as aggressive and focus more on farming until your flash is up again. Remember, you have no natural escape once flash is down.
  • In top lane, if the enemy champion is melee, feel free to land as many Qs as you can on them for free harass. However, make sure to have your river warded, as top lane is much less safe then mid.





Mid Game


  • If the enemy mid laner is playing passively, or you fear getting ganked, simply push your lane and roam. Cassiopeia can clear minion waves and push lanes really quickly, allowing her to make her way to other lanes and usually make it back in time to keep up with farm.
  • Once you pick up Rylai's Crystal Scepter start roaming even more. Even with enemy wards, Cassiopeia ganks can still often be successful due to the slow from Rylai's Crystal Scepter.
  • Camp out bushes you know the enemy mid laner will pass through when they are returning from farming the jungle or roaming to ensure a free stun and kill with Petrifying Gaze.
  • Whenever you get blue buff, try to set up for dragon. Cassiopeia is easily one of the best early dragon DPSers in the game due to her high early single target DPS. She can take it in a matter of seconds with the help of the jungler, putting your team way ahead or allowing them to catch up in gold.
  • Teamfights will begin to break out at this point. Remember that you are incredibly squishy even with Rylai's Crystal Scepter, so stay behind your tanks and frontline, and avoid getting bursted down at all costs.





Late Game


  • Cassiopeia does insane damage late game, especially when she has 6 items.
  • Cassiopeia has the highest late game single-target DPS in the game. If you can make it to late game, you should be able to demolish teamfights as long as you arent caught out and bursted down.
  • With no escape, you need to make sure that you stay far behind your front line and tanks to avoid getting picked off.
  • Do not wander off alone or by yourself.
  • Sometimes it is better to save your ult till halfway through a teamfight than to run in at the beginning putting yourself in harms way. Remember, Petrifying Gaze is an amazing re-engagement tool.
  • Poke the enemy down with your Noxious Blast when it is safe to do so. Though the damage is not that great, any free poke will give your team an advantage when the teamfight breaks out.
  • When getting sieged upon, drop your miasma in the way of the minions. It prevents engages due to the grounding effect, and late game it should do enough damage to make clearing the wave significantly easier for your team.





Warding





Most people fall into the noob trap of warding the side bushes of mid lane. Stop being lazy, and force yourself to instead either stealth or vision ward the bushes in the middle of the river on either side of mid lane. Note how this gives you vision of four different exits/entrances (denoted by the yellow circles) and some dragon control. This will give you plenty of time to react to an enemy jungler when they are near. Ward both sides if you can, however if this is not possible, ward one side and stick to it religiously.




This map should give you an idea of where you should be warding. Obviously early game you will want to have the bushes in river warded to protect yourself against ganks. As the game goes on, however, warding dragon and baron will become increasingly essential. If your support is not doing it, you need to take the initiative and ward. I cannot tell you how often games are won simply because of better vision. Sacrificing a little time/gold for vision goes a long way. Remember kids, wards saves lives. Don't just hold onto the trinket, USE IT!

Switch to this item ONLY when your team is doing an excellent job of warding up without you and the enemy team is also doing a good job of warding. This will help you clear out some of the wards on the map to help you better control the flow of the game

You can switch to this item at around level 9, and start spamming it on cooldown. It really doesn't matter where you place the ward, just try to get down as many as you can to give your team as much information about enemy positions as possible.





Gameplay Videos





This is a youtube video of me playing Cassiopeia in early season 3. Though some things like the optimal item builds are different now, the gameplay, strategies, and tips remain largely the same. Yes I know I pronounce Ahri weirdly.




This is a youtube video of me playing Cassiopeia at the end of season 4. This if following patch 4.16 in which Cassiopeia received a rework. Her gameplay changed significantly, as did her optimal item build. That being said, a lot of her playstyle is still the same as before.




This is a video of a high elo Korean player playing Cassiopeia that was released a few months back. It really showcases what a well played Cassiopeia can actually do. Notice the amazing positioning, ridiculous DPS, and high speed action.
