Who am I and why am I writing this?

Hi, my name is Myk. I've been playing Lissandra support since she came out (which isn't saying much), and love her kit. To answer your question, I am nobody. I barely, if ever, play ranked. And i'm not really that great. I main support and jungle as of the last 2 months, and have been eagerly awaiting lissandra's release. I am writing this because i am a good support and feel that Lissandra's made for the part. Add that to the recent speculation that she is OP and will be nerfed down, there really isn't much nerfing that can be done to take away her support power. they usually lower damage output, which honestly gets in the way of her supporting sometimes, as you will catch yourself taking kills trying to stun people. But my ADC loves playing with her, and she is a fun support to play. Feel free to leave this guide at any time, but i hope you at least hear me out.

Skill Sequence

I take my first point in Ring of Frost to give myself both a farming tool and a great early stun. I take the second point in Glacial Path to allow me to initiate harder by using Glacial Path into Ring of Frost. Then, just for a library of attacks, i put my third level in Ice Shard.

I max Ring of Frost first because it gives you the massive root and the root duration increases at each level, as well as the cooldown reducing. I then max Glacial Path for its usefulness in initiations and jukes. Of course, i level Frozen Tomb every chance i get. Lastly, i level Ice Shard last, but put an early point in it because its initial damage and harassment, let alone farm.

Summoner Spells- Other Options

I prefer Exhaust and Teleport, for the forementioned play early game, and it allows you to go back more frequently. But i also like Flash, because it's a good spell on just about everyone, but because Lissandra has Glacial Path, i can live without it.

Item Sequence

Morellonomicon 2200
Ruby Sightstone 1600
Boots of Swiftness 900
Frozen Mallet 3100
Timeworn Frost Queen's Claim 2200
Will of the Ancients 2300

Early Game Items

My build is focused around being useful to your team, while being able to dive in, root enemies, and GTFO. I start Lissandra with a Faerie Charm, 2 sight wards, a Vision Ward, and health pot, and rushing a Sightstone. Sightstone is great because it saves you money on wards and gives you a much needed HP buff. Rushing into the Morellonomicon prevents mana problems, Boots of Swiftness gives speed.

Frozen Mallet?

Next, let me talk about Frozen Mallet. People are very critical when it comes to frozen mallet. Lissandra has a lot of CC, but you can never have too much. I find it infinitely useful to have the slow on your basic attacks as well. It also gives you more health, which is always good. If you don't agree with me on Frozen Mallet, then don't buy it, it's that simple, but try it first. Now you have another choice to make, which part of the mallet to get first. Getting Giant's Belt as the first part of your frozen mallet will give you more sustain, while Phage will give you more offense. Either way will lead you well into mid game.

Mid/Late Game Items

Heading into your Mid/late game will be finishing your Frozen Mallet for more health and a basic attack slow, followed by Shard of True Ice for its gold and active. Upgrading to Ruby Sightstone gives you another free ward and more health, and Rylai's Crystal Scepter gives more slow and health. Once your team is pushed and has the enemy defending, you can choose to sell your Ruby Sightstone for more useful items late game. You can finish the game with a Twin Shadows for it's movement speed and magic resist. As always, though, change your late game items depending how the game is going, but items such as the ones listed here give a good amount of AP and defense, let alone usefulness as a support. And ward. for the love of god get some wards.

Overall, this build (without wards) costs just under 15000 Gold.

Team Work

The most important thing when playing lissandra support is communication. Your ADC must know when you are going in, or your dead for no reason. I accomplish this by Pinging the person i want targeted and then making sure my adc is in position before doing anything. If the other team initiates on you and focuses you, use your Frozen Tomb on yourself and ping for your ADC to focus the squishiest laner, many times you can easily pick up a kill with the slow from your ult, especially if they dive you. Lissandra's ultimate is like a free Zhonya's Hourglass.

As far as your ADC goes, I like really mobile characters with Lissandra. My favorites are Quinn and Ashe (ironic much?) because your slow can let them do so much damage, and their speed and range lets them chase for the kill. Never miss an opportunity to Frozen Tomb the enemy ADC if you know yours can get the kill. And with characters like Ashe and Quinn, your ult is the perfect amount of time to finish someone.

Drawbacks to Support Lissandra

Up til this point, I've barely touched on the drawbacks to lissandra, especially support. Here it goes, Top Six Style

6-You will Killsteal. Maybe not on purpose, but it will happen
5-You have to have a ballsy ADC. If they aren't going to finish people, there's no point in you being there.
4-Cooldowns are bad, luckely, this is tackled in this guide.
3-Squishy early game and going into mid game.
2-You WILL get focused in teamfights. That is why it is YOUR job to disrupt as much as possible, then GTFO
1- Everyone is playing her- At the time of this writing, i have tried to play her at least 10 more times and had someone beat me to her. And when you do get her, people are surprised your supporting and think your trolling. Just do what i do, show them with your actions how good she is.

Hopefully you liked my guide. I just didn't see any support guides that i liked, so i made mine how I play her. But take my advise, you don't have to follow this guide completely. We all have item preferences and I don't think following a guide perfectly will ever help. Take the parts of my guide that you like and tweak it to your playstyle. This is (obviously) my first guide, and I hope you guys like it. If I did something wrong, please leave a comment. I know this won't be the top guide for Lissandra, and i probably won't be the top support guide for her either. But i can dream, right? :) Thanks for reading

Thank you for reading my guide, and hopefully you will enjoy Support Lissandra as much as I have.
