Both do the same initial damage (Though Ricochet is a little more due it's good ratios), when leling up Sivir's w you lower cooldown well q's highers mana cost. Her W is an AA proc, well her q is a skillshot. The only advantage is her q can hit on the rebound for more damage/hit a missed hit and it has more ranged.

Q has much higher damage and can hit twice, it can take literally half someone's health earlygame if it hits both times. This is what gives Sivir her burst. W is mostly useful for resetting your autoattack.

For levelling Q you get:

+45-81 damage + more if you hit both the AD and support
+10 mana cost

For levelling W you get:

+15 damage on main target + minor AoE on the minions/other laner
-1 cooldown

The AD ratios are unaffected by allocating points.

If it is that good why isn't Sivir played a lot as an ADC? She also gots a build in Banshee Veil.

Shortest range of any AD, no escape abilities.

At some point you will be with a 500 range champ.

That's why I stopped playing Sivir, I can't handle the combo of such a short range and having no escape. Plus I can't use her E for ****.

You like long range and like escapes to get out of a ****hole, do main Cait?

Before you even engage, you should know where the enemy jungler / mid laner is so you know its safe to engage >.<
