Threats & Synergies
can not get close enough to minions, your early game combo shuts him down. If he trys to trade trial of fire, barrel into trial of fire takes to much damage from him. Also hes a free klepto proc.
To squishy to fight you, your q does more damage than her auto.
Your q is longer than her q, your bareel hits her while she is shrouded. Late game will only be hard if you feed. She should only be able to farm under her own tower.
He does well against champions with high damage and no sustain, W keeps you out of taunt and trial of fire pushes him from farming. Don't be afraid to be in minion wave.
Pre level six is easy if u shut him down, He is to item heavy and if you don't late him farm the first few waves, level six and about shouldn't matter.
Trading will always be on his side, but he has to land his q, Your q is an auto lock so you should be getting more free trades anyways. push him out of lane and if he does trade, be sure to set up a barrel and be in minion wave.
To weak no damage, no cc and has to do to many autos to shut you down. In my perspective a really low tier champion with really bad tools in his kit.
Pushes waves so hard you might not win the earlly game, but will gain enough gold for an early trinity force. After trinity force it should be one sided. Just keep procing klepto, he probably wont try to avoid your autos.
Early game incredibly easy if you know how to control barrels and not let him dash away from the damage. Trial of fire equals almost three of his autos so make sure its up.
farm and place barrels in your minion wave, you can still slow him if he tries to double dash, your skill length is to far and he shouldn't be able to get in.
Can't do damage to you if she doesn't land a stun. Just place barrels at low hp minions.
People lose this match up cuz of fear, land your trial of fire to get away that boost is amazingly faster than fiora. Do combo trades and you will always win.
This is a placements match up, you do more damage than darius if he misses his q. Your q is longer than his hook, even if he hooks you, auto him back to gain the boost from trial of fire and save your w for his slow. Should never be able to get you if you can control barrels.
Kit for this champion is good, to bad his scaling is garbage. If you really want to win this match up u can always grab grasp and a dorans shield.
Probably the hardest match up since his early game scaling is a nightmare. If you don't dodge is q just back up, you can't fight him.
|Standard item, its to gain gold and to sustain health off random item drops.|
|Gangplank does not have hard cc, that makes him an easy target for early tower dives, but have barrels placed and ignited before going into perfecting.|
|Helps you sustain in lane and have extra Q's to harass. Also allows you to withdraw from using w since its heavy on mana cost and be the cause of you leaving lane early.|
|One of your main damage items is going to be your ultimate, you want it as low as a cool down as possible for team fights. also having that extra one to two seconds off your q is also important in team fights.|
|This allows you to get close and personal with high dealing damage characters and having you come out on top. Remember try to use trial of fire as much as a harass tool as your q.|
|Helps nullifies damage from flat damage doers like veigar and burst champions. It also helps you tap out your health at 4 to 5k instead of 3 and increases your damage out on your titanic hydra.|
