hi, from the guide you seem to have mastered the champion, my diana performance has dropped in my last games because i don't know how to play against bruisers, could you help me with that, saying a good build and some mindset i need to have? Warwick, jax, tryndamere, volibear, udyr etc. are a big problem for me

translated by google translator :)
Njoror (3) | August 20, 2022 4:59pm
Bruiser are definitely hard due to their 1v1 potential is high (Some more then others but there are ways to fight them). People like Warwick, Tryndamere and Volibear you want to have items that give you armor and healing reduction. I would say when dealing with those people do the tank diana build. Example: Nashor's Tooth, Plated SteelCaps, Sunfire Aegis, Morellonomicon (Or just get Oblivion orb), Demonics Embrace and Zhonyas Hourglass to deal with trynds ult OR Rabadons Deathcap.

Jax and Udyr are a little bit different depending on how strong they are when fighting them. For Jax due to diana autoing you have to poke him out before all ining him due to his ability to dodge all your autos which is a big portion of your damage. He also scales ALOT harder then diana does. If you have a lead on him try to use it affectingly to keep his scaling to a minimum.

Udyr is just a huge pain as his movement speed allows him to kite you and dodge your abilities. If you are vsing him pretty much treat him with as much caution as jax.

The build I gave in my first paragraph work for all the champions you would Vs. If you feel you need to swap something to make vsing these individuals better for YOUR play-style go for it. These are items and builds of used vs these champions before and have worked for me.

I hope this helps you.

hello from what i have seen most dianas that play jungle go nashor tooth into sunfire aegis with the conq runes, i know thats semi tank but which one is better for climbing low elo?
Njoror (3) | August 12, 2022 10:05am
The build order that is here is just the full build I have generally for Diana. How you build is up to you.

You are correct that most dianas build Nashors tooth first as it helps with jungle clear and damage as diana autos quite a bit as a AP Mage. Conq is solid for tanking as you'll get your Conq stacks off pretty consistently. I have been doing lethal tempo with the sunfire aegis build to see how often I can get my 3rd auto off during longer fights. I like it so far. It also depends on the enemy team comp you are vsing. If there are 2 massive tanks on the team I say go for Conq, If you are vsing a tank and a fight/bruiser go for more upfront damage or lethal tempo (I like this one but this is how I enjoy playing diana and there are many ways to enjoy her kit).

The other way to build diana is Raw tank stats with some AP in it. As her shield does get stronger the more health you build so a raw tank diana is also doable (Example Build: Sunfire Aegis, Nashors Tooth, Spirit Visage (Yes this passive does affect the W shield Strength), Randiuns or Thornmail (Depending if you need Healing reduction), Shadow Flame (For health, more AP and AP Pen) and Plated steel-caps for boots.

For climbing out of Low Elo I would say your best bet is running The Sunfire Aegis build. It is a Solid all around build for diana and you can swap out items for whatever is needed against the enemy team.

Let's say I'm really adamant about adding Lichbane into my build. What other items do you think I should pair with it?
Njoror (3) | July 2, 2022 2:25pm
You can pair Lichbane with Night harvester and Nashor's Tooth or you can do Riftmaker, Lichbane into Demonic Embrace. Play with those and see how they feel to you.
Howff | July 2, 2022 2:49pm
Thanks man, exactly what I wanted to hear given how much I love Night Harvester.

Can i play conqueror with the defensive build?
Njoror (3) | May 21, 2022 8:07am
100% you can. I've done the Conq build with a defensive build as well. I quite like it. I've also Done Conq into tank. (Riftmaker, Demonics Embrace, Rabadons Dcap, Randiuns, Spirit Visage and Plated steelcaps) It was a pretty fun build.

The Guide I made is to give a new idea/playstyle on diana as I feel she is hugely versatile in the way you can build her.

super helpful, lots of healing, honestly just great build
Njoror (3) | May 7, 2022 7:31am
Thank you I am happy you enjoyed the build. You can also do tank/ap diana if you feel too squishy at times, both work wonders.
Forsakenreborn | April 3, 2022 7:28pm
worked wonders for me
Njoror (3) | May 7, 2022 7:30am
I am glad it helped. GL on your future Diana Games :)
giwrgosss7 | March 4, 2022 1:16pm
I really like this build, but idk if i should rush nashors or riftmaker. I usually rush nashors cuz of the attack speed but idk if i should be buying riftmaker first
Njoror (3) | March 4, 2022 8:40pm
Depends on what you prioritize at the time. The items are just what I generally build. That is why I say it is a guide to give you a IDEA of a play-style. The style can be changed to how you see fit based on who you are vsing and what needs to be done.

Also the items I have don't generally get built in that order they are items I tend to build in most of my games. You decide as the player how you feel things need to be done/built and in what order. ^_^.

Is there any chance of more info about the runes please? or is that literally the go to runes EVERY game. Sick guide thanks!
Njoror (3) | February 24, 2022 8:41am
No there are other Rune set-ups for different team comps. I generally run this unless there is a really beefy tank that can out-sustain you in a fight. If there is I generally switch to Precision(Conq)/Domination.
vincenzo1992 | February 8, 2022 10:42am
this guide improve my diana a lot, i do more things and kill more(insta) so dont worry to try this one
GwenTalon123 | February 6, 2022 9:24pm
I feel like you have a lot of information, but I am not sure if it fully explains what I should try to do every game and in what matchups
Njoror (3) | February 7, 2022 8:56am
I think I give a good overall explanation on what fits certain match-ups/playstyles. If you feel I am missing somethings give me a suggestion and I will be happy to add it into the guide to make it a more rounded guide.
