Threats & Synergies
Draven is a pain in the @$$ but Sivir is one of the few ADC's that can at least keep a fight. Your range and ricochet allows you to poke without getting axe'd. Use your shield with his slow and ult
A good Ashe can screw you up because his slow works with auto attacks and she has one of the best kitings in the game. With a good support with CC, try to stun or gank her. She can't escape except for flash or ulting somebody
Since the ADC buff, Cait has more burst due to her Trap + Q combo. Avoid her traps because if you fall in one you'll have to pick: if you use your shield on one of your traps, the Q with hit you. If you fall in the trap and block the Q, you will be burned over time.
Corki can be an easy lane or a tricky lane. Every damage he can do to you is based on her abilities and your shield blocks them. But you only have one shield with 20 secs of CD. So play behind the minion lane and watch out for the bombs
The only thing he can do to you is jumping onto you and AA. You have your shield and you Q. F*ck him.
This is beautiful. Everyone is scared of Graves since his rework and they should. He causes lots of burst damage. But his range is sh*t. And I mean, SH*T. If he wants to hit you he has to get reaaaally close and your supp and you will destroy him. If he uses his Q, use your shield.
Jhin is terrible to fight against as Sivir in early game but as the game goes on, it gets easier. He can't get more A. Speed and with your ult + W, you will hit him 3 or 4 times before he shoots you twice. Block his stun with your shield and punish him with your W if he gets too close of his minions. He is made of glass so if his supp is not very tanky or can't get him out of trouble, go hard on in and the lane is yours.
Sh*t starts to get real. Her A.Speed boost early game allows her to do more damage than you. Besides, you can't block her rockets and if you waste your shield on her E, she still has her w and it goes on and on
Kalista's passive is broken and it always will be broken. Is really hard to land a Q on her, if you activate your W she can bounce away from her minions and you don't know when that b*tch will pull his arrows out, so you don't know when to activate the shield.
Nasty. Really nasty. She has a long range, she deals more damage, she heals herself, and her chasing potential is op. Your shield becomes useless due to her jump (like Kalista) and if you block one Wolf's hit, the next one will hit you
Hahahahahahahahaha. No really. You completely disable him with your shield and Q + W combo. If he dies and tries to hit you, use your shield and thank him for the free mana. Watch out for his slow if you don't have your shield up
Redheads have no soul. She is one of the few champions and maybe the only ADC that can compete with you in terms of movement speed, if you don't activate your shield fast enough, her pool will slow you and her Q is an autoattack
A little tough. Her passive works with AA's and she is hella fast. But you can block her Q and her ult damage with the shield and, if you're fast enough, her E as well
Mother. F*cker. Little furry scum. Everything about him is autoattacks and he stealths. You can't see the mushrooms so your shield is useless. If you reach him, you destroy him, though
Another mana-gifter. You can't shield yourself to her Q because those are AA's but if she jumps onto you, ults you or if she puts a bomb on you, your supp or your minions, get close, count 6 seconds and activate the shield. Don't forget to thank her for the mana
Has the same trouble as Kalista (you don't know when the E is coming so you don't know when to activate the shield) but his scape abilities suck and he is kinda mana hungry if he starts trying to deal damage to you with his poison. Get onto him and combo him before he turns invisible
Easy. Really easy. You can watch through the whole process of him charging his arrow and his pool. Shield, shield, shield
Oh, Vayne, what did little Sivir did to you? Her Q ends in an AA. Her W is only about the AA. The E is almost impossible to predict. Although, a good ADC player knows when a Vayne is going to E, so try to kite her near to a wall so she E's you and you get your mana. This is not very recommended unless you wanna laugh at the Vayne's face
Lucian counts on his AA's because of his passive, so your shield only works on his ult and his Q (which you have to be really fast at casting to beat the Q's speed).
It's really weird seeing a Jayce as an ADC but if the guy is crazy enough to do this, go Sivir. Everything about Jayce is abilities and if he gets close without mana or the hammer, he will die. Don't block his E because no Jayce maxes his E first. If he leaps to you, shield him in the face and punish him for trying getting close to you
Hey, this is my guide to Sivir. I'm not much of a teller so let's get into it.
I saw the Mobafire's most viewed Sivir guide and it's f*cked up. Really. It's how noobs understand Sivir but it's a little more complicated than that
Why picking Sivir?
Sivir might be the ADC with the quickest minion-wave clearer in the game. One of her abilities is an AoE damage that costs a small amount of mana and has less than 6 secs CR. She has a decent range (500) and her passive is good for chasing.
There's a reason for picking Essence Reaver as a first item over Infinity Edge. I.E has some powerful stats for almost every ADC but E.R has 2 interesting passives. One is that you gain CR based on crits and the other one is that every crit restores 3% of your max. mana pool. This passive and ricochet work excellent together. So pick Essence Reaver first. It has a most suitable build path for early game.
This doesn't mean she can't work with I.E. Actually, it should be your fourth item (after P.D and boots). It's just not the best choice for first item.
You already have your own S.S and it's called W. Your Ricochet does almost the same thing and it's free. Besides, with P.D you can basically enter, poke him, and get out, suffering less damage from him and not colliding with minions
I'm gonna say it again. DO NOT MAX YOUR Q FIRST. ALWAYS MAX W FIRST. Yeah, at the beginning you might think it's not doing much damage but I repeat: Sivir is a mid-late game champion and when you W ys maxed is when you really start doing tons of DPS damage.
In the late game or if you're fed (after getting Essence Reaver and Phantom Dancer), you can clear a whole minion wave by Q'ing onto it (the boomerang must hit every minion the 2 times it passes trough) and then using your W. You can proxy-farm using this technique.
Communicate and work with your team. If one of your allies is about to die and you can see Jinx's W path about to hit him/her, don't hesitate in standing in front with your shield.
Your ult can be a great initiation of a TF, with you coming from behind and allowing the rest of your team to catch the other team.
It can also be a great escape for that ally that just stepped on a Teemo's mushroom and the whole other team is going onto him.
If you're getting chased, throw a Q to your back. If it hits an enemy, you'll gain movement speed from your passive and maybe save yourself.
If you're playing ranked and you see the other team has a Sivir-counter ADC, and you think you can win him only because of your skills, you're wrong. You'll die like the noobs. Sivir is not that hard to master but it can be outplayed easily.
Sivir is not really a First Blood champion. Dedicate to farm and scare the enemy with Q's. You'll dominate mid and late game with a good farm.
