Champion Build Guide

The only samira guide you will ever need

Riot gave us another champion to make solo laners/junglers upset and im all for it. hope you like Devil May Cry because you'll be juggling enemies with your passive after your team lands any hard cc. plenty of outplay potential with her W and plenty of presence in a teamfight with your ultimate. you can even throw coins at enemies, dead or alive, to add just the right amount of bm. perfect

Any questions you have i am more than willing to answer on stream at
or my discord -
Passive: The movement speed you gain from ranking up your style grade is really useful for getting in and out. It allows you to dodge any random ability that might be flying your way in teamfights/skirmishes. all of your melee abilities will do bonus magic damage increased based on missing health


Make sure to alternate between AA's and abilities because your style will not upgrade if you hit the same thing twice in a row. ex. AA > Q > AA will work . AA > AA will not

short trades
AA > Q > AA
AA > E > AA > Melee Q
AA > E > Q during E > AA
AA > E > Q during E > AA > W

Oh You Fancy
AA > Q > AA > E > AA > W > Cancel second swing of W with R
AA > Q > AA > E > AA > Q > AA > W > Cancel second swing of W with R
AA > E > AA > Q > AA > W > Cancel second swing of W with R

if i come up with any new combos i will update this list
Early laning
her laning phase isn't fantastic unless paired with a support with consistent hard cc and or high damage output early on. you'll typically wait for your support to land something and then activate your passive to extend the duration of whatever cc they were already affected by giving you the extra time you needed to land your abilities. level 1 it'll be a lot of farming with your Q considering you'll more than likely be at a range disadvantage since you only have 500 range with your autos. level 2/3 is the best time to try and gain an early hp advantage with your support if you didnt take too much damage level 1.
level spikes
level 2: gives you access to Q and E and gives you more windows to take aggressive trades if your support lands hard cc.
level 3: is basically the same + the ability to outplay oncoming damage from ranged supports/adc and makes it even harder for you to die if your support lands cc to start off with.
level 5: your Q is on a 4 second cooldown and you get to be super annoying given the low mana cost.
level 6: is where the fun really starts. your ult is a static 3 second cooldown and before items the damage isn't super crazy but once you have some items bought you'll start shredding champions left and right.
level 9: your Q is maxed out and is on a 2 second cooldown. 2 seconds. just think of the possibilities :O
level 16: your ult doesnt cost any mana anymore. what more do i need to say
item spikes
you already had no troubles in terms of mana but once you have essence reaver the cdr/crit/mana sustain will keep you active in lane for much longer than i think should be legal. when you have deaths dance you dont have to worry about making mistakes as much but you should still be careful. dont forget you are definitely still an adc and nowadays you just sorta die for free.
your scaling is pretty average UNLESS you get the opportunity to ult in teamfights. her damage output with her ult is absolutely disgusting and is essential to being relevant in the later stages of the game.
the best teamfight is the one where you don't have to start by using your w defensively but never be afraid to do so. once you get your style to S you can just pretend you're katarina and spin through the enemy team. if there are melee threats that don't leave you the potential to outplay them with your w its sometimes best to wait for them to use cooldowns on your teammates before you enter. deaths dance + whatever defensive item you opted into for your 6th item will typically give you more than enough survivability to last long enough to ult at least once.
Unfortunate Circumstances
if you fall behind in laning phase or your support is playing super passive/bad synergy then i would highly recommend just farming with Q if there are big threats in the lane. if its a lane with a lot of outplay potential for you then you can look to poke with Q when possible and look for an all in situation where your support's input isn't as necessary
