I'm seriously considering Elise as a potential character to play quite a lot when she is released. Despite being a "mage", upon inspection of her kit, it seems like she will have very good damage output even without building a lot of AP. She's also very bulky in her spider form, and appears to have pretty good sustain via her Skittering Frenzy move.

I feel like I could build her somewhat akin to how I build Warwick or Cho'Gath; perhaps. Like; maybe a build like the following:


Mercury's Treads, Rod of Ages, Frozen Heart, Abyssal Mask, Rabadon's Deathcap, Void Staff for a tanky mage build (Otherwise what I build on Cho'Gath.)


Or perhaps;

Mercury's Treads, Frozen Heart, Wit's End, Spirit Visage, Void Staff, Guardian Angel for a more sustained but still tanky build (Otherwise, what I build on Warwick.)

For runes I'd probably use Greater Quintessence of Movement Speed, Greater Mark of Magic Penetration, Greater Seal of Armor, and Greater Glyph of Scaling Magic Resist, assuming I'm top lane.


These are just some thoughts I've had in my head about her, but I'm sure any number of mage build variants would work on her, though I feel like the squishy builds would be a bit too risky for my liking with her play style.


Anyway, I thought I'd ask the community what you all would build on her!

(Let's keep the chat civil please, this champion isn't even released yet so any ideas will not be exactly wrong until tested. :D)


Here's her ratios and abilities, if you don't know them already.

i think she would be good for top lane as another AP Bruiser type thing

or an AP jungler cuz of the range of her spider E and the stun she has

i think she could go mid but you make more sense top or jungle

and honestly i think that id stay in the spider form until the spiderlings die and spam my three spells as a human then back to spider form during late game

early game youll probably stay as a human for the harass only to be a spider when you need to heal or if you get ganked or are going for a kill

i think her skills might go R > W > Q > E but getting a level in Q first

Yea, that's why I'm drawn to her kit more than most new female mages (Which Riot makes waaaay too many of). She looks really versatile. I get a Cho'Gath feel from her because she's a mage that can act as a tanky damage dealer, but she has the added benefits of being half ranged, as well as being able to function as an assassin if needed too.

Apparently Stonewall says she's a stupid strong jungler.

I wanna play her top, but it'd be cool to jungle her too.

put her anywhere save for maybe support. Her kit let's her do well anywhere. Or that's my opinion.

AP Jungler works okay, ap mid is okay top is okay.

I find she is just okay and stuff and doesnt really excel at any individual role.

From what I've seen she's a super fast jungler, no matter what runes you throw on her. But that is subject to change with S3. I think she fits my playstyle just right, and I can't wait to try her.
