Threats & Synergies
Jax early game is quite easy to thwart, his Q can be countered by your E, however his E will counter your autos, which includes your passive. Try for early kills against this guy.
Champions like Ahri can be really difficult to fight, your E brings you into her charm, her Q is good at poking and she procs ThunderLords really fast compared to you when trading, however she is still fairly squishy, making it easy to pop her if she misses a crucial skill shot.
Camille's 1v1 is insane, you cannot push her out of position, she can life steal, and you E technically puts you in the range of that life steal, however you can stop her stun with yours. But her ult? oh my. edge of night is not a bad item versus her, even tho its mr.
Playing against Darius is a series of kiting and baiting, the reason he isnt green, is purely because if a skilled darius uses his pull whilst you E, youre pretty much dead.
Yasuo poses some threat as you are fairly immobile, but you can stop his dashes with E, you can E over his wind wall, which is his only counter to ranged damage, and proccing his passive is really easy :) Also if youre good, auto him whilst he has your passive mark, since the extra move speed can be used to dodge his tornado
Trundle is an interesting match up, where the skill of the trundle is important, but overall you win. Its only ever lost if you get caught out by his move speed and slow, or if you E him but get caught on his pillar. Otherwise this match up is fairly easy to snowball with one jungle gank :)
Quinn is a splitpush marksman, good at 1v1s, roaming, and objective control.
However, she can be easily knocked out of the game as getting camped or losing lane drags her really far behind.
I like to go Lethality first, get a Youmuus and maybe a Draktkarr, Statik Shiv is really fun too and I recommend going these three items. Stuff like TriForce and Black Cleaver are good if you want a little more tank, so against true damage, and if youre against some1 like Garen or Darius, consider a Deadmans Plate. You also want to consider the enemy comp when playing and building Quinn.
The build I use is very similar to the top lane riven meta in season 5, since I use 10% cdr, 13 AD and 9 armour, Thunderlords and Ignite+ Flash. Quinn can deal surprising high amounts of damage in the first three levels, (which is why I also like to go and get Q on third level for the extra damage) so I usually take Thunders for the early game lead, if you don't get it, you don't necessarily fall behind so don't worry, yet if you want to consider team fighting more often or playing an ADC role, Warlords is a good option, Id choose it over Fervor since it gives a little more sustain, but Fervor is still a good option, as it really makes use of your passive.
If you want a little more thought or your own studies of Quinn, try;
"Godbro sama" A Challenger Quinn player, he plays a multitude of champs, but has quite a few good games on Quinn that you can learn from. EUW
"KnevîL" is also a good option, he plays Jungle and Top Quinn, currently #1 Quinn at Diamond, he seems to be a one-trick, so check him out if youre interested. EUW
Yes this is a short guide, and I apologise if youre looking for an in depth one, however its meant for people who just picked her out of the blue, or for people who want to learn her, but prefer to discover things by themselves, so the details here are fairly bare bones.
