Lissandra - The Ice Witch

Back to Top


Hi everybody ! I'm DarkEdiz a Eu-West player who live in France ( nooo ! don't blame me, ahah ^^ ) I apologize beforehand for the faults which he could have there because I use a seen translator that my English is bad.
I begin to make guides because I like I can help people and that pleases me because that comes from me. Be not too hard. ^^
I make this guide to propose you my way of playing Lissandra and so maybe you help in your choices of runes, master, etc... For your next games!

Good reading and thank you ! :p

( I shall continue to bring modifications to this guide. )

Summoner Spells

Ignite allows to make deaths more easily thanks to his damage and his 50 % of reduced heal or if the target runs away with few of life.

Flash allows to have more escape possibility + your Glacial Path it's just amazing.

Classic summoner spells but it's safe and great !

Iceborn (Passive) : Every 18 seconds, Lissandra's next ability costs no mana. Cooldown reduction does not affect Iceborn, but the cooldown is reduced by 1 second whenever Lissandra impairs an enemy's movement with an ability (does not apply to movement-impairing effects from items).
Cooldown : 18 seconds

Ice Born (passive), 18 sec so long for a free spell, i think it's a useless passive, but nice if you haven't mana.

Ice Shard : Throws a spear of ice that travels in a line and shatters when it hits an enemy, dealing 75/110/145/180/215 (+65% AP) magic damage and slowing its Movement Speed for 1.5 seconds. Shards then pass through the target, dealing the same damage to other enemies hit (but not slowing them).
Slow : 16%/19%/22%/25%/28%
Cooldown : 6/5.5/5/4.5/4
Cost : 85 mana
Range : 725

Ice Shard is your main abilitie, short CD and slowing down with good damage ! Nice abilitie who participates at your gank / escpace / nuker power. You can farm / harass too with that.

Ring of Frost : Freezes an area around Lissandra, dealing 75/110/145/180/215 (+65% AP) magic damage to nearby enemies and rooting them.
Root : 1.1/1.2/1.3/1.4/1.5 seconds
Cooldown : 18/16/14/12/10
Cost : 70 mana

Ring of Frost is your CC abilitie, and with nice zone damage. He allows to gank or run away.

Glacial Path : Casts a claw of ice that moves forward in a line, dealing 70/115/160/105/250 (+60% AP) magic damage to all enemies hit. Reactivating this ability transports Lissandra to the claw's current location.
Cooldown : 24/21/18/15/12
Cost : 80/85/90/95/100 mana
Range : 1050

Glacial Path is your escape or gank abilitie, so long CD but very nice, combinated with your flash can give a amazing and safe escape. Or if u want gank nice too, you make little damage with that, then you use your CC ( Ring of Frost ) ... And enjoy.

Frozen Tomb : ENEMY CAST: Freezes target champion solid, dealing 150/300/450 (+70% AP) magic damage and stunning it for 1.5 seconds.
SELF CAST: Lissandra encases herself in dark ice for 1.5 seconds, becoming untargetable and invulnerable but unable to take any actions.
Dark ice then spreads from Lissandra's target dealing 150/300/450 (+70% AP) magic damage to enemies. The ice lasts for 3 seconds and slows enemy Movement Speed by 20%.
Cooldown : 130/105/80
Cost : 100 mana

Lissandra ulti is just awesome, if you cast to an enemy he is stun for 1.5 sec and take so much damage, in teamfight cast it at the ADC or APC that give you a good advantage and at the time you can zhonya on you for more safe.

If you cast to you, your invulnerable for 1.5 sec and make AoE damage ( + Lyandry's Torment passive if you have bought it ) + you can use zhonya too 1.5 + 2.5 = 4 SEC ! Where you are invulnerable ! In teamfigh can be nice too or if ennemy dive you at tower, make it too, and he take so much damage, he die, you owned him ! :p

Skill Sequence

Ice Shard : Up it first because it's your main and usefull ability !

Ring of Frost : Up it second because that would be your AoE and CC ability.

Glacial Path : Up it third because that ability is long and hard to placed at the ennemy, just nice to escape and gank you don"t need to up it before in spite of the long CD.

Frozen Tomb : Up it when you can because it's your awesome ulti.

Back to Top


Sorcerer's Shoes for the magic penetration who is usefull for a AP carry.

Athene's Unholy Grail give you all you need in mid lane, magic resist, AP, CD because your cooldowns are so long and massive mana regen because your manavore !

Rod of Ages to your uishy problem, give you lot of HP and MP and AP.

Rabadon's Deathcap for your burst power, nuke power, it's essential.

Zhonya's Hourglass for the good synergy with your ulti + nice AP and armor.

Liandry's Torment give you magic penetration + HP + AP, so it's pretty nice and with him passive and your slow's abilities nice synergy.

Void Staff for the AP and for the nice 35% magic penetration.

Abyssal Scepter you can take it too if you need more magic resist or if you have others AP champ in your team + your ulti nice synergy.

Team Work

You are Lissandra, so you are the AP Carry and you must make so much dommage and CC at your enemy because you can !

In teamfight wait to your tank engage and then you can come with your Glacial Path then Ring of Frost then Frozen Tomb then Zhonya then you end it with Ice Shard and Ring of Frost.
Or you found the enemy ADC or APC and you make your Frozen Tomb on him then you burst him while he is stun.

Use your CC and ulti at teamfight is essential. If you lose the teamfight make a Ring of Frost and run away ( for you use Glacial Path :p ).
