Threats & Synergies
One of Samira's worst counters. all point and click cc champs are a counter to her especially the ones who cant be stopped by her W
cc can be stopped by Samira's W but its pretty hard.
easy to dodge cc.
hard to dodge his ultimate or block it with W. but you can block his q after he hits the ult which will block alot of his damage
her ult IS dodge-able if you time your w when she ults but its pretty hard.
you can block her ultimate or a headshot with your w
not huge threat if you can block her q but if she stuns you with ultimate you're dead
hard to kill and can cc you out of your ultimate
You can block her q and her e with your W but not her ultimate so watch out for that
Easy matchup since you can hold your W to stop his ult
If you can react fast enough to W his ultimate he can't kill you but its pretty hard
troll support vs samira since you can block his ultimate and his q.
not too hard to kill but don't let her scale since she beats you late game
useless against you
dont get stunned by his q's and he should be an easy kill.
Dodge. on a serious note he deals insane damage and one-shots you but you can block one of his q auto's and he will not receive the axe back
you can block her e with W but her ultimate will make your life hell
Block his e and he can't peel anymore but you will never be able to kill him post-6 without grievious wounds
useless support. buy grievious and it becomes a 4v5
point and click cc and not block-able by your w. hard matchup
if you are fast enough to block her e you would be mitigating half her damage output but it isn't as easy as it seems
save your w to partially block his ultimate, helping your team by stopping a lot of oncoming damage. hard matchup though
Her spell shield lets you cast your ultimate in teamfights while being uninterrupted and her q helps you activate your knock-up passive in lane.
okay suppor with samira by healing her, tanking spells and cc'ing enemy adc in lane
good support with her shields and her root is good to proc your passive
helps with damage and has good crowd control
okay support by keeping you alive but doesn't offer cc / damage
offers good slows and shielding capabilities and his cc is good
bad synergy due to lack of reliable cc and he doesn't really help you other than being a meat shield. his w can be useful sometimes but also unreliable
good support due to his reliable damage, he also gives you speed helping you reach the enemy team with your ultimate and his ultimate will give you a second chance
ok support. offers some cc and tanky-ness.
ok synergy, helping you with poke in lane and has his e for cc. can help finish off kills with rite of the arcane (R)
please no nid support
Good support and underrated pick. helps a lot with cc and damage. also provides vision with Hawkshot (E)
Gives ok sustain in lane but has some unreliable cc
really good support with her Ult and move speed from w but unreliable in lane until level 6
Really good ult. Reliable cc. good cc
good cc and damage. good in lane but easily killed in late game
Really good late game support but tough to get there. laning phase will be hell
Really good and reliable cc and tanky-ness
bad cc but huge damage opening opportunities for clean up situations
ok cc and tanky-ness and damage
Yuumi is bad because she doesn't provide good cc or tanking opportunities.
Really good when she hits 4 people with her ultimate letting you go in freely and getting ultimate
bad support because her ultimate pushes the enemies far away from each other which is not what you want. her cc is bad and she doesn't offer anything other than her shield
Really good due to his insane amount of cc and his tanky-ness. really good at tower dives and strong throughout the whole game
ok support because of her good heals but doesn't offer much else.
good support. has ok cc, offers a shield and deals a ton of damage
ok support. ok cc but gives a good amount of shields
really good support by helping with taking aggro and his w can help you take some extra hits. his ultimate is a life saver
okay support with okay cc. he is pretty tanky
he doesn't offer cc and if he goes full AP he wont help you at all
Champion Build Guide
Try to put in auto attacks between q's in order to stack your passive more efficiently.
Unfortunately this ability has high cooldown all throughout the game so use it wisely
This ability can be cancelled by crowd control.
