[Patch 9.13] Empress of the Elements - Qiyana Guide

By Xykrotik


I'm Xykrotik, a jungle main in League of Legends.
I've played every jungle champion and my favorites would have to be Warwick, Kayn, Kha'Zix, and Jax.

When I first saw the Qiyana reveal, I thought that she'd make/be a really decent jungle champ more so than a solo laner. Her abilities line up with jungling far too well and she makes full use of her Terrashape by being in the jungle as well as ganking lanes. The ability to Terrashape the river in order to stun a laner with your Edge of Ixtal(Enchanted) before ulting them into the wall is far too powerful and essential when ganking.
Import Item Set Back to Top
I've conveniently made an Item Set based around this guide. All you have to do is go to:
Collection-> Items-> Import Item Sets-> Paste Copied Set

Copy and Paste the code below in the text box that says "Paste your item set content here" and then the item set will be imported!

Abilities Back to Top

Royal Privilege

Royal Privilege: Qiyana's first attack or ability against an enemy champ deals bonus physical damage. This cooldown resets when she draws a new element.

Edge of Ixtal

Edge of Ixtal: Qiyana slashes the area in front of her, dealing physical damage to all enemies she hits.

If Qiyana's weapon is using an element, her weapon hurls forward as a projectile and explodes, applying a bonus effect based on the consumed Element:
    +River - Roots opponents on hit.
    +Wall - Deals bonus damage to opponents with low health.
    +Brush - Leaves a stealth trail which provides movement speed.


Terrashape: Targeting an element, Qiyana dashes forward to gather its power. While enchanted, she gains movement speed near the element, attack speed, and bonus damage.


Audacity: Qiyana dashes a fixed distance towards a target, dealing physical damage to them.

Supreme Display of Talent

Supreme Display of Talent: Qiyana creates a shockwave, knocking back enemies. Any River, Brush, or Wall hit by the shockwave then explodes dealing damage and briefly stunning enemies.
S9 Runes Back to Top
Jungle Path Back to Top
The current best jungle path I've found is to start Red Brambleback (Red Buff)-> Raptors -> Krugs -> Wolves -> Blue Sentinel (Blue Buff)-> Gromp -> Scuttle -> Gank

After Ganking(If a lane is available to gank) is a good time to recall to purchase Tiamat for a faster jungle camp clear. Head to raptors upon purchasing Tiamat, then to Krugs, then gank a lane again.(Don't forget to ward drake/rift herald!)
Qiyana Combos Back to Top
Believe it or not, Qiyana is actually a combo heavy champion. She requires a reasonable understanding of her kit, as it's rather detailed. Below will be her most useful and frequent combos that will help you clear camps faster and more efficiently gank lanes.
