Season 12 - Mid/JG Tut. - Rank 1 Diana (Vaynz) - New META - Updated

By Vaynz
Why Diana?

Hi, my name is Vaynz, I'm OTP by Diana from season 6, also from this season I reached rank 1 diana. On all my accounts I have over 2.5 million points on this champion. I make this guide for people who want to learn something and climb as fast as possible.
My peak was challenger, I always maintained in season 10 & 11 rank 1 on target with a pretty high winrate (68.7% WR / 125 games - Season 11)
Season 12 (ATM) : 80 LP Master - But suspension 14 days

Why Diana? She has a basic kit so it won't take many games to get a feel for her potential, and once you've mastered her kit you'll be one shotting carries in seconds before they even know what happened!

If you love an assassin that can play as a bruiser, splitpusher, duelist and jungler then this champion might be for you.
About runes and why?
Why these runes? These runes can give you a huge advantage over the enemy midlaner. At each recall you can buy with the market futures an item in + against the enemy and you can keep your snowball very easy.

2. CDR runes, makes you much more viable in fights, after each takedown you have a 2-3 second reset on each skill and you can rejoin in fights very easily. Flash is much faster than the enemy, another advantage or ignite

3. If you play jungle, you can take attack speed on the secondary runes instead of adaptive force for a much easier clear.

4.Don't forget that above you have the 3 rune setups, the one with electro you can use it if you don't like the one with first strike, it's for those who feel insecure on trades.
Items vs enemies AP/AD
About gameplay and items. At the first recall it is advisable to buy a dark seal and an amplifyng tome (of course if you have money to amplify). Why dark seal? Dark seal gives you the chance to make your snowball much better, which comes in maximum synergy with First Strike (The more dmg and water you have, the more gold you get from this rune). If you have 10 stacks on dark seal and you think you can upgrade to Mejai.

About AD enemies - Recommended if you have a hard lane or a win conditioning in the enemy team as AD, after Rocketbelt you can take Zhonya because it gives you a big advantage (Engage safe, armor, cooldown)

In this case, apply Banshee's veil in AP win conditioning which gives you the chance to first dodge CC, clean combo and much more.
Some tips & laning
Diana has a few tips that will improve your gameplay dramatically.

-Teamfights -

a)Try to make the fight for you, you can start with a slow poke and after you give an all in with flash e r.
b)If they only have an enemy "fed" you can try a full combo only on it to easily win the goal / match.

- About trades -

a) At both level 1 and level 2 you can make short trades with your q, but it is recommended that the trade reach both the minions and the enemy in order to be as easy as possible.
b) At level 3 after the small trades you can give one shot if the enemy midlane does not have CC / escapes or is not a tank. For example LeBlanc / Katarina / Zoe.

- About laning -> Laning is of two types

1.Aggressive - shoving

a) Aggressive-shoving is my favorite playstyle because I can clean the line very easily with q and w, after I help my teammates on the botlane to get an advantage but I can also get an advantage from this thing (mark seal / emjai stacks) the line on the botlane can bring us an advantage to be won which leads to a 14.3% higher chance of win or we can choose to help the jungler to invade or counter jungling (scuttles / gromp)

b) Passive laning, if the enemy is very ok and clearing the mid you can't apply the shoving tactic because he can follow up very easily for example Ekko, he can use his q even after coming to follow. With this type of laning you can try to win the mid and play for the team and make a very interesting play or an engagement that can bring you victory.

- Another usefull tips

Try not to use W while dashing towards a target through a minion wave as your W will pop before you hit the enemy champion cutting out a big portion of your damage. Having your W hit the enemy and not a minion wave is a big advantage.[/color

Diana can jump over to Baron and Dragon in select spots. Try this in the practice tool and get this down consistently. It'll help with escapes and engages, and even crucial Baron/Dragon steals!

When splitting with Diana use Q to proc your passive while taking turrets every 3 or so autos depending on attack speed. Avoid using W if possible as it has a long cool down and will be needed to duel if you're contested "note Dianas W will go on cool down faster if the orbs are popped"
