League of Legends (LoL) Question: Who Should I Get?

    Who Should I Get?

    Ok, so... I’m wondering which champion I should get next, I’ve got it narrowed down to Diana, Syndra, Lissandra, Orianna, and Fiora. I need a consistent pick who can hold her own and has consistent power in certain parts of the game, and isn’t extremely risky farming minions. I am leaning towards Diana, Syndra, and Lissandra because I like bursty AP midlaners. I would really appreciate any suggestions!

    The answer to your question depends on what you are looking for. First of all, try said champs when they are on free rotation. Spending a whole lot of BE on a champ and then discovering that the champ just doesn't fit you is kinda... meh (altho it can take a long time for them to be in the free rotation D:).

    You mention you want the following:
    • Consistent power in certain parts of the game
    • Isn't risky farming minions
    I am not entirely sure what you mean by this, so I'll list some differences between the champs you mentioned:
    • Syndra has the highest burst out of all champs you mentioned. She is a lane bully and overall an alright pick. She is a very skillshot heavy champion and therefore can have trouble playing against assassins / other high mobility targets.
    • Orianna can be viewed as a slightly different version of Syndra. Definitely does not have as much burst, but has more utility with her E and W. On top of that, her ultimate can be a game changer.
    • Lissandra can be extremly strong in teamfights and skirmishes because all of her burst is AoE. Downside is her atrocious early game, she doesn't have the damage and the range to compete with other ranged champs (melee matchups are another story though).
    • Diana is another story. She leans towards a more bruiser-ish playstyle and is more at home in skirmishes & a sidelane rather than teamfights. Nonetheless, her ultimate can still be extremely strong in teamfights. I am not too sure about Diana's strenghts, so I'll leave it here.
    • Fiora is umm, an AD toplaner. I know that she excels at splitpushing, but is meh in teamfights. Not sure about her strenght in specific phases of the game tho.

    Nonetheless, in your quest of searching a pick you might want to narrow down what you want, think of the following:
    • Do I want a ranged champ or melee champ?
    • Do I want something with a lot of damage, or do I want to have some utility as well?
    • Do I want something that can roam or something that mainly wants to sit in lane?
    • Do I want a champ that is a lane bully, or am I fine with having a not-so-good laning phase?
    There are still a lot of options besides the ones you mentioned (although I vaguely remember you saying that you only play female champs, not sure where though). It is just hard to suggest something since I am not sure what you are looking for :(

    You remember correctly, good memory! The reason why I enjoy female champions more is that I find them more relatable, and I find them hotter cuz I’m a Lezzy XD. As for your questions, I’ll answer them out of order (hope you don’t mind) so that I can better explain the flow: Ranged or Melee? Doesn’t really matter as long as they have other good qualities. Lane bully or not so good laning phase? Well... laning phase is usually what sets the pace for my games, so I generally want a safer laning phase while being able to play somewhat aggressive, so I would say lane bully. Roamer or Laner only? I like helping out my team, so I would say roamer. Damage or utility? I like deleting enemies off the map, and one of my biggest problems is when I don’t have enough damage to do that and they kill me instead... so I would say damage UNLESS the main reason for the utility is to allow you to deal more damage. I hope that this helps!

    Oofies! That's some tough stuff. So, readying all this I am starting to lean towards Lissandra, here's why:
    • Safer laning phase compared to most other mages. Has an easier time against assassins and has more safety against ganks compared to many other mages. Has the option to play somewhat agressively, although this will be limited by the enemy's skill (this is not that much of an issue if gold or below, as people don't really know how to shut her down or you can pick up random kills later on).
    • Has roaming options
    • Can delete people

    Now, perhaps you might think I am totally not a biased Liss OTP! Howeverr, I am mainly gravitating towards this pick because of the way you describe the laning phase. If I go by ''deleting enemies of the map'' Syndra is of course the supreme choice. Looking at your preferences, I'd definitely eliminate Orianna though. I feel like she is more on the utility side of the roster.

    In the end, it's all up to you! Here are some more suggestions that might or might not be interesting: I hope this helped you, but keep in mind: you might not immediately find the one. I myself went through half the midlane roster before finally settling with Lissandra...

    It seems like you are a mid player, but just in case, syndra top is destroying right now.

    Honestly, you were saying that you wanted AP burst, and it didn't matter if it was ranged or not, so I really want to you consider playing Akali. First, of all she is very hard to catch with all of her abilities except her q, and in early game, you really can't lose trades because of your passive ***asain's Mark. Since there isn't items that really help with your AP early game, your Passive's auto literally does more damage than your q, and you can proc this up to 2 times level 1. This would put the enemy below 40% hp, and put you at around 80% hp, double of what they have. Now they gotta back and they hardly had any gold so it's quite useless, and now they miss out on farm too. I've found champions that are ranged and start CC as their first ability really annoying to play against because your passive timer runs out and you lose that empowered auto attack. It could be someone that stacks up to the stun like Annie, and if your unlucky enough to get level 2 ganked by a cheesy jungler you're pretty much screwed. You gotta keep that all in mind, and play with your powerful Passive ability.

    hi i think veigar will be good for you.He can hold his lane ez and also has a great late game

    If you're still thinking about this, I think Syndra fits your criteria best. She's strong early and has good tools for last-hitting and pushing safely. If you'd rather have a heavier scaling champ instead of a lane bully, go for Orianna.

    I think you should play whatever champion fits your interest. If you like bursty AP midlaners then Syndra etc. might be your choice. All the ones you mentioned has the kind of consistent power etc. like you mentioned so it's really about what you're more comfortable with playing.
