Effectively Winning Lane & Applying Map Pressure

Taliyah shines when it comes to her laning phase and the map pressure she offers for your team. A key thing to keep in mind when playing Taliyah is that no place is to far for you to turn a 2v2 in a 2v3.

Laning Phase


When in lane with Taliyah, you don't need to be aggressive. You are a natural wave pushing champion and can do it effectively in most mid lane matchups. You can win trades effectively with your Q. To step it up a notch, you can trade with the full combo of your kit. The first step is to get a slow on the enemy, laying down your Unraveled Earth and then landing your Seismic Shove on the enemy back into your Unraveled Earth, followed by a solid Threaded Volley landing all 5 shots. This is a huge combo against the enemy laner. If they are keeping their distance, try laying down your Unraveled Earth and pausing before using Seismic Shove to effectively land your skill shot. Again, you can always trade with a Threaded Volley and you should safely win the trade with ease.

Example of Trading / Killing In Lane


When you find down time or your lane has been effectively shoved, you have a few options. Can you steal the enemy jungler's raptor camp? Can you take your own Raptor camp? Is there a possible roam to the Top or Bot lane that might yield a kill or effective pressure? This is your time to scan the map and find your next move.

Applying Map Pressure


One of the things we do extremely well is applying map pressure at a moments notice. With our Ghost Summoner spell, our movement speed passive, and our Weaver's Wall, no fight is to far for us to turn the tide in. Remember to glide the walls to your location using Rock Surfing for a quicker approach to your destination. Be mindful of which enemy champion still has Flash available for your Weaver's Wall and plan accordingly. Do not forget that certain enemies can dash past your wall (Lucian, etc.)

Weaver's Wall : The Do's, Do Not's, and How

Does our ultimate need it's own section for explanation? Absolutely. This is a game changer in a variety of ways when driftin' on the rift. Weaver's Wall allows you to be any where the second you feel like being there. It can do some of the following for you and your teammates.

- Effectively roam out of lane and show up in another lane, while cutting off an escape route for the enemy.

- Save team members who might be under chase from the enemy.

- Cut out the enemy team from objectives. Dragons, Barons, Towers, and Inhibitors can become simple to secure with a well placed wall.

- Cut out the enemy team from team fights, shutting down an enemy carry from even joining the fight. We don't just peel the enemy, we're the bouncer of the club and were not letting the enemy ADC in.
