Threats & Synergies
You just have to dodge his comps this is quite easy with the move speed boost you get from Eve's E. Be careful with his ult, don't fight him.
If you're against a great Akali's player, be careful and dont be greedy. Because of her dash and smoke she can kill you easily. Use your charm as a bluff to make her use her smoke, and if she dont u can have a good trade.
Be careful with her stun. She is not a real threat. Dont forget her passive which can give her advantage on you on your early laning phase.
Well played he is quite hard to fight. Try your best to avoid his stuns and silence. Be carefull to his ult. U will need your jgler help on this one i guess
Not a real threat, u can easily dodge his comp. Be carefull to his bleeding thing in your early laning phase. try your best to dodge
Just dodge his Q , don't be greedy too Play with the minions to dodge his Q
Really hard, she have great damage, dash, and can avoid ur charm. Don't be greedy and be carefull, u must wait your jgler
Just be carefull to his bareels.
The threat is the silence thing. Try to proc all your Q's before he silence you, or use E to get te movement speed before he silence you to be able to go away. when you're not silenced anymore proc ur Q again, but keep running. Be carefull to his ult, dont be greedy . . UPDATE : Even when you win your lane, for some obscures reason he can still carry his team.
i don't have a lot of experience against Gnar, but be carefull when he use his ult
She isnt that hard, try to dodge her comps, and with E u can run faster to avoid tentacles and stuff. If she ults, just run away
For me she isnt that hard. You just have to dodge her stun which is not rly difficult
i played more games against him and u can escape his stun with ur E (or slow with ur charm and run away) so u just have to predict and stay away when he is about to jump. (but still hard)
Quite easy to fight, if you can have advantage before she evolves, it's easy win for u
He can poke u a lot, but u can do great trades. Be carefull to his ult
U can dodge his comps easily, u can also use his E to help you to get closer and make him regret that. Dodge his passive, dont forget he can shield, and be carefull to his ult.
U have to harass him, don't let him farm and ask help from ur jgler.
Hard to fight , he is really tanky and have a lot of stuns , be carefull and ask help from ur jgler
Quite easy if u're carefull to his shield thing. Use your charm when he use his shield, and proc it when his shield is over. Be aware of his stun and Q when you're low
U can make her big dmg because she's not a tank. but be carefull before you're lvl 6
Just dont fight him when he ult. Be aware of his dash , he can dodge ur Q (happened to me and i'm dead bc of that, lol)
A casual Riven player is not really hard to fight. But a pro one will make the difference. Be carefull to her Q and her stun. She can also use her ult to finish u , dont forget and dont be greedy
Not rly hard, just dodge his comps and be carefull to his ult
His shield thing is your real trouble, so dont get too close to him, just do littles trades-----update----- U can win him in lane only with little trades and charm. Fight under your tower and don't hesitate to slow him so he take more tower shots. Really hard matchup.
Rly hard one, dodge his comps and ask help from ur jgler/ UPDATE : still impossible for me, even in late game he is so tanky, don't pick eve if he picked tahm first.
Teemo. Srsly u can't do a lot, his Q dont rly affect your comps, but he have a lot of poke, and his mushrooms are your counter. update: i win my lane against him by farming under tower, and wait him to be greedy, before lvl 6 u can do him real dmg too , but be careful to his poison things
Easy to fight before lvl 6, then u have to be carefull , dont hesitate to slow or charm him when he is on ult, u can ignite him too at the end of his ult
He have great damage dont get too close. if u can escape him, u can easy dodge his ult. But if not, you're probably dead update : well he is rly rly hard. i cant 1v1 him, what i said before is shit lmao i'm 100% dead.
His clone thing can annoy you, but he is easy.
Be carefull to his shield, and his ult
A good yasuo can be hard to fight but, it's easy. proc charm with E so you wont have trouble with windwall. Dodge his Q and it's done. Be carefull to te minions, he can dash on it so dont get too close
Not that hard when u dodge his comp. Attack his wall thing when you're in it . . . More annoying now
Not really hard, be careful to his stuns things, run away when he ults
Play safe in early, do a trade if you can but be careful. After lvl 6 ez win.
Punish him when he fail his dash, try to do small trades, not that easy to kill beacause of his shields. (he can survive to ignite or your ult...)
Champion Build Guide
I'm Qveen Evelynn, a nobody who mains Evelynn. I am not english, so sorry in advance if my guide is cofused sometimes or i dont know. I try my best!
I main Evelynn since my begins in League, i can say i have good mechanics on her. I can't really say my real rank, because i don't play ranked that much. I started to play ranked with my Evelynn top at preseason, i didn't played that much tho. But i went from Iron IV to Bronze I, and i was doing the five games thing before the preseason ended.
Why am i playing her in toplane? First, i tried jungle in S9, but i never liked jungle, not my thing. I tried jungle too in S11 but same, i don't like. So after her Q rework i started playing her midlane. I tried a lot of builds to be good as a mid, and i was pretty good tbh. But i was still weak against CC and everything. One day i got the idea to try her in toplane, and i tried Conqueror, and i saw that it was super easy to proc and with some tries i was pretty good in dual. So here i go, i was better than in mid. And ofc, it's fun to play.
If you make some plays with this build and have some vids don't hesitate to let me know, maybe i can add them here too!
-So, the good thing about this pick is her ability to dual. Most of the time, if you're good with Evelynn and her mechanics, you will win your lane. You can have first blood at level one, you can poke with your Q, you can win the 2v1 if you get ganked (not always, depends on the situation and the enemy jgler.)
-You also have a great push ability.
-You can roam to mid easily, being always invisible make your opponent think you're still on the lane and wait him to push. So he will play safe and freeze while you're helping mid.
-You're hard to gank too, before level 6 it's easy to gank you, but if you have great pressure and poke on your oponent you can win that fight because he will be low and you will have advantage on the jungler. After level 6 you're invisible most of the time, so the jungler wont come. And if he do, you can escape easily.
-Also have great damages.
-You're not a tank.
-big mana issues.
-Weak to CC.
-You lose a lot of power in mid/late game (because of having Conqueror instead of Electrocute.)
-You need to know her mechanics and damages to play well without being greedy.
-Farming is difficult, you need to know her damages to farm well.
-There is no tank in the enemy team, so you can take evelynn.
-There is only one tank in the enemy team, in toplane, and you can kill him in laning phase, so you can take evelynn.
-There is two tanks in the enemy team, don't take evelynn, your team really need a frontlane.
Also, if you already know your matchup, and you know you can't do anything (for exemple Tahm Kench, the biggest evelynn top counter in my opinion) don't pick evelynn.
As evelynn top you will really have fun if the enemy team don't have tanks, or if your team have a lot of CC.
You can play Electrocute but you will have to play super safe, farming will be harder. You have to poke a lot with your Q.
So, i don't know.
With Conqueror and all the sustain this runepage gives you, you can win 1v1 easy. (But look at the threat thing on this guide, because against some champs you can't win 1v1. I keep it updated.)
You can choose between Last Stand and Cut Down .
As Evelynn you don't have a lot of HP (~500 lvl 1 for exemple) when your oponents are tanks with a lot of HP. Cut Down will give you a real advantage on those fights, this advantage isn t really big at lvl 1 because the HP diff is sometimes around 200, depends on champs. But with some level you can have a lot of dammage thanks to this rune.
The good point on Last Stand is the surprising dammage you can make. When you're low in a fight, in your laning phase, you should have conqueror proc, and your pots, so your health dont move that much and stay low. So you can have great dammage here. And the most important point in my opinion with this rune, is the possibility to 1v2 the jugnler. Most of the time the jungler dont have that much hp diff with you, so Cut Down don't really affect the jugnler. But by being low, you can easily have a dobble kill if you play well.
UPDATE: Hey, i changed somes runes and i wanted to write it down.
First i changed Triumph with Presence of Mind. Both are really good in different situations, but Presence of Mind is really better for your lane phase, because of the mana it gives u, you can stay longer without using your pots. I took time to change it because Triumph saved me a lot of time thanks to the extra hp it gives when i get a kill. Ideal for 1v2 when u get ganked. But Presence of Mind allows you to poke more and farm better. So this choice is up to you.
Then for the second rune thing, i never really knew what to take because tenacity isnt really usefull on Evelynn so i took bloodline. But in fact this is life steal, on the auto attacks and in a fight you only put one or two aa. So this is really useless. But after a lot of thinking i took the attack speed one. Why ? It helps you a lot to push and farm, because Evelynn's autos are really slow and not really damaging. So you can farm better, and it's always usefull when you attack towers. Won't really help you on fight unless if you need one auto to kill (happens sometimes) So yeah, this is my choice.
The Rune page of this guide is bugging sometimes ,at the end i take AP bonus, and then two armor / RM , not two AP bonuses. I don't know if it's really usefull , but i feel so because evelynn is really weak and don't have a lot of HP.
- Ignite is the best one, you will need it for your early kills, and it's really usefull against some champs. Without ignite you can't get first blood. (Or your oponent is dumb, or don't play with flash, lol.)
- Teleportation is great to roam, or go back to your lane if you have difficulties. If you're on a matchup where u know u can't do much, such as some of your counter take TP to come back fast on your lane and roam.
To be honest, it depends on the way you play. If you prefer have better roams, take TP. If you're playing more solo to win your lane and have kills, take ignite.
You begin with your Q, don't use it for farm, first waves you can farm with only autos. Use your Q when you oponent is near to you.
Then take your E second, it will help you to get conqueror faster. ( Q + Q + E + AA + Q + Q )
Then take your W, you have two options for fight here :
-Use it as a slow : use your Q and E first like i told u before. If the ennemy runs away, use your W and proc it immediately. Or, Use Q + W + Q if he is away, then you can use E to get close to him.
-Use it as a charm : engage the fight with your Q then E, when you used all your Q, use your charm. And when your Q will be back your charm is supposed to be full or almost. So you can proc it and do antoher trade.
Those are your main fights combos.
Your ult will be a finisher or a replacer. You know it as a finisher so i'm gonna tell you how to use it as a replacer (it's easy.)
During a trade maybe you will lose your health super fast, so ult when your low to avoid dying. Your ennemy will be kinda low too thanks to the ult, he will probably chase you. So your charm is supposed to be up at this time, so use it. If you can't kill him, proc it as a slow, and run. If you can kill him, wait the charm to be full (if you dont subit dmg you will be invisible with your passive, and have regen) throw a Q, and kill.
Don't forget to use the bushes, they are really helpful to have advantage on trades.
Here is a cool "trap" tip for you, after level 6 if you have done a close trade with your oponent and have enough mana to finish him, do your back animation as if you were backing for real, but when your invisibility come up in the animation, cancel the back and go in a bush or anywhere you can surprise your ennemy. He will think you have backed.
When you're level 3, if your poke is good, you're supposed to have pushed a lot, so you should ward the river bush. And always take a look at the map.
After level 6 you have two choices :
-Start roaming to help your mid (and your bot if you have TP)
-Keep farming and pushing to get towers.
If you decide to roam, don't forget to be careful, don't go if you can't do something, suicide is not an aim. If you get a kill, help to push and get tower fast.
If you decide to stay and farm, don't be greedy under the tower, it's hard to escape if you get ganked and you're low. You need great vision, don't forget to ward. If the laner play safe under the tower and you can't kill him, then roam.
Ok i have a new thing here. During your laning phase your aim is to set pressure on the ennemy team. You're gonna farm and push, and have vision in the river. With your mana issues you will probably back a lot of times, i have now two more options. I'm still testing it out, i'll keep it updated.
So first, you don't roam, you can roam mid once or two for help, but you want to set pressure on your lane. when you have enough pressure and killed your oponent, if you can (usually i do it lvl 8 when i can) go for Herald. You can solo it, and if your jungler can help you it's even better. But you need vision to avoid the enemy jungler or even mid if he is roaming. If you have great pressure, you can have two heralds. (and so 2-3 towers.)
When you have enough pressure, you have to invade the enemy top jungle, it will help you with your cs issues if you can't farm very well with evelynn in lane. Also, if you're fed, you can easily (depends on the matchup but 99% of the time you can i guess.) kill the jungler in 1v1. So you need vision in the jungle. If you're on the good side on the map, you can take the enemy blue, which is extremely useful as evelynn. When you have it, you can hard push with your Q and E.
(friend told me that casual toplaners already do this. Well i didn't know about lmao.)
Here is what i do in most of the games now, and by playing like this i carried more. I don't delete things i wrote before because it can be still usefull for you to keep in mind all possibilities. (Because on some games, you will prefer to roam mid.)
Lever 1 to 6 i stay in lane, i usually get a kill between level 1 and 3. I usually back level 4 or 5. (Depends on how many corrupt pot do u have. If you don't have any you should back. ) Then level 6 you should be able to kill again. (if your oponent is greedy or stupid, you will also kill at lvl 3 or 5.)
Here, you just want to set pressure and poke. You're gonna farm with your auto attacks, sometimes with Q and E (better when the enemy is close to poke and farm with Q) but don't forget about your mana. So you push not that fast, most of the time your oponent just take a step back to play safe, so you kinda freeze. you don't want him to farm.
Then at level 6 you can have easy kill with your ulti + your ignite if you need. When you get a kill you can farm, but be aware of the enemy jungler, dont hesitate to use your passive.
For warding you should set a pink in the river bush, then you can set normal wards in the enemy jungle to have vision on the red/blue buff (better on blue buff cause you need it. But sometimes you're just not on the good side of the map, lol). If you're scared about the jungler because he is strong, you can set a normal ward on the bush near to your tower on the red side . (Of course only works if you're on the red side.)
Then level 7-8-9 you should be able to do the herald. You have to hard push your lane, or kill your oponent, then you go to herald, if someones helps you it's better , if not you can do it alone but you need your corrupt pots. Maybe not the three, but at least two. (you will lose a lot of mana and hp you need to recover with the pots during the fight.) Then when you have it instant back. return toplane, push and use it to take the first tower.
When you took the first tower, you need to keep pressuring (is that an ok espression? lol) the toplane. You push, have vision in the enemy jungle nearby, stealing jungle camps and buffs, and killing ennemies. You can roam to help mid too at this moment.
Then the second herald will came up, you can do it fast, always with your pots. Then put it top after pushing to take one tower, maybe two if the enemy team isnt reactive.
Then you just have to help your team in the other lanes, enjoy.
-If your team is good, and wins teamfights and don't really need you, you will splitpush.
-If not, you have to help your team in teamfights. Then push with your team.
In teamfights you should never engage, CC are your weakness. You should stay invisible, so enemys don't have your position. They will think they are against 5v4, and will be surprised to see u. (I don't know if they really think like that lmao, but i feel like they do.)
Anyway use your charm to get rid of some ennemys, some of them are weak enough and don't need charm. But if the enemy tank engage the teamfight you can charm him and kill him fast.
In a teamfight use your ult as a finisher if you can kill one or more than one target, or just use it as an escape is you're in danger, it will do great damage and it will help your team to win the teamfight.
You need to focus objectives, and win the game fast. Because as i said earlier, the power of Evelynn conqueror is not as good as Electrocute one. So longer is the game, more difficult it will be. You can still one shot people, but if they get full stuff and everything you will have more trouble to. (At least with ultimate hunter rune, your ult cd will be extremely low, so really usefull to make dmg and kill.)
Don't forget it's a fun build, if it was a real meta thing i guess more people would heard about evelynn top.
Anyway, i really want to improve this guide and this build, i'm not a real pro in the game like i don't know everything and stuff. So guys, if you try this out let me know in the comments, and if you found things to improve dont hesitate to tell me.
I hope you'll have fun if you try this.
