I started playing Sivir, and i noticed that her spell shield doesn't take affect instantly. For example, i see brand's fire circle bellow me. i quickly press E. after a moment the circle explodes, i take damage, and THEN i see the shield forming around me. So it this delay a part of the ability, or is it just the lag?
How can i effectively use the shield if i have to place it before a spell is even cast at me?

I'm not sure what you mean, the spell shield does come up very quickly. Maybe you're just not reacting quick enough. I mean mos spell shields have a slight delay, but it's mostly negligible if you're paying attention to the enemy champs' casting animations.

The shield has a very small delay. It's super annoying when you're trying to do those clutch spell shields but then that .5 ms delay from starting up the shield to when it's actually up is suuuper annoying.

Yea, you need to predict when they are going to cast, usually you can see some movements...

but if it is a SERIOUSLY long delay, might be your ping.

Thanks to TRUeLM, Plastictree, Scrax, Xiaowiriamu, foggy12, JahGFX, jhoijhoi, msrobinson, JEFFY40HANDS, Nyoike, MissMaw, and me :) for the sigs!

It does have a .5~s delay on it to mean timing is crucial but you can't just block something so easily like Cassiopeia's ultimate.

Ping also comes into play.

Meh... if there is a delay its pretty negligible, I play Sivir quite often and can hit 95% of the spell shields I throw up...

The ones I miss are the ones that the enemy has baited out of me cause they know how clutch I get with my E button.

Many thanks to Alexanpt for my epic sig

If I helped you at all, +Rep

ohh ok, so i think its mostly lag..
anyway, another question - if i use Ricochet, do all the hits activate 'on hit' effects or only the first? for example if i take Madred's Bloodrazor will it do the 4% damage on all the jumps too? or smaller percent, or maybe no effect at all?

and one last question - on items like Stark's Fervor who's considered an ally? is the effect works on me too? and on minions/summons?

Ricochet does not proc on-hit effects. Only the first champion you hit will be affected by things like crit chance, lifesteal, Madred's, et cetera.

Stark's Fervor specifies "allied champions" so it works on your four teammates and yourself.

The thing about stark's and all other aura items is that any aura also applies the same aura effect to you. For example Will of the Ancients, You get the Spell Vamp and 80 Ability power. About Spell Shield, it is a very tricky spell to master, but when you do it is awesome. Learn all of the signs that enemy champions have before they cast their spells such as slight movements or sounds. For example, you can hear the gun **** on Caitlyn's Piltover Peacemaker.
