Hello, thanks for visting my guide!

I hope you find my guide easy to navigate through, I hope you learn plenty of stuff about Orianna, and most certainly i hope you'll have a great time and enjoy my guide!

I am Marfiok - I have been playing league since the end of season 4 and i have been primary playing Orianna and Syndra... Through the many years of playing League of Legends on and off i have achieved a total of 450k. mastery points on Orianna. I have been primarily been playing Orianna together with Syndra in the mid lane. I peaked in s10 at Platinum 1 89 LP and in general this guide will be for experienced players, in Low Diamond/Plat/High gold

Through 1000 of games played I always have found Orianna fascinating, both beacuse of her high scill cap and her extremely diverse kit and playstyle, you can always improve after everygame and learn from your past mistakes.

In this guide you will get some few tips and tricks for orianna, learn to play her to the fullest, get a full view of what it takes, to master: the lady of clockwork, and lastly learn about me, and my experience with her, i appreciate you, taking some time out of your day to read this and hope you'll enjoy your stay ;)

Please note that this is my way to play Orianna and it may differ from others.


- Always a viable pick

- High Damage and burst potential

- Easy laning and farming with passive

- Comeback potential from anywhere

- Strong shield (peel for allies)


- Susceptible to Ganks (No Escapes)

- Very Squishy

- Very Mana Dependent

- Long CD on only CC

- Though learning curve

Orianna's Strenghts

Orianna for some reason always seem to be one of the highest contested champions at every worlds. It's simply because she is a strong pick, no hard counters and reliable scaling, making her perfect in every meta.
Orianna is a mage that has great scaling, good ap ratios in her kit and burst potentiel in late game. This always makes a reliable damage dealer.
Orianna usually has a great time in lane: she has good waveclear, she can zone with her ball and easily farm with her passive making her laning phase great.
Orianna's ultimate Command: Shockwave is the ability which can alter any game, a 5 man Command: Shockwave can guarantee victory in any situation.
Orianna's "E" Command: Protect is a great way to peel for your allies, you can shield them, boosts them and Command: Shockwave them, this is great for when you are not the main carry.

Orianna's weaknesses
Orianna doesn't have any mobility, which of course makes her very easy to gank. Ganks can be fatal, if you don't have your Flash up.
Orianna is also very squishy, she has the second lowest armor at lvl 1, and her only type of resiliance is her shield, which you dont lvl up until later.
Orianna suffers from mana issues early on, because she so heavily rely on her abilitites. this is why Manaflow Band is essential on Orianna.
Orianna's ultimate Command: Shockwave has a very long cooldown, which requires you to know exactly when to use it.
Orianna's playstyle is so different from other champions, it makes her so much more dificult to master. and requires loads and loads of hard work to fully understand her.

Unlike every other champion Orianna's ability are all coming from the same spot, her ball. Orianna works different in the way that her "W" and "R" abilities will be located where her ball is. You can use your "Q" and "E" to move the ball.

Clockwork Windup

Passive Ability

Orianna's Attacks deal additional magic damage. This damage increases the more Orianna Attacks the same target.

Orianna's passive helps primarily in the laning phase, and can be usefull when trading with your opponent. It also helps you farm.

Orianna commands her Ball to fire toward a target location, dealing magic damage to targets along the way (deals less damage to subsequent targets). Her Ball remains at the target location after.

Orianna's "Q" is her bread and butter ability, this will be your main way to direct your ball and control it. Your "Q" is meant as a away to get the ball to your desired position. Orianna's "Q" also has great synergy with aery

Command: Attack

"Q" Ability

Command: Dissonance

"W" Ability

Orianna commands her Ball to release a pulse of energy, dealing magic damage around it. This leaves a field behind that speeds up allies and slows enemies.

Orianna's "W" is great for wave clearing together with your "Q". Your "W" is the main way to burst or do heavy dmg. The mark it leaves behind also boost you up and slows the enemies, which is great for when you are getting chased or when you chase.

Orianna commands her Ball to attach to an allied champion, Shielding them and dealing magic damage to any enemies it passes through on the way. Additionally, the Ball grants additional Armor and Magic Resist to the champion it is attached to.

Orianna's "E" shield herself or an ally and boosts MR and Armor. is your main way to survive burst or trades. This also redirects your ball to yourself, this also works well with aery. is also great for peeling for your allies

Command: Protect

"E" Ability

Command: Shockwave

Ultimate Ability

Orianna commands her Ball to unleash a shockwave, dealing magic damage and launching nearby enemies towards the Ball after a short delay.

Orianna's ultimate is your best chance of carrying your team. Generally Orianna has great teamfighting power, but this can turn any game around, there is nothing more satisfying than getting a 5-man ult
