Summoner Spells Back to Top

4.png MANDATORY!


This is a must, no choice, you want to have flash as it adds extra gap-closing ability with Flash + W and will allow you to surprise many peple doing so as you can travel a really long distance. You can also Flash + Q then W the enemy to your backline if that is the case, or under your tower.

14.png FOR FIRST BLOOD

This skill allow you to first blood at level 1 or 2 (more likely) do your full combo W + Q and auto + Ignite any mid laner that is at 50% will get you a kill, you can eventually Flash + AA to secure it should he/she go away with an inch.

12.png MOBILITY PICK

If you know the that the people you are playing with will not waste your TP gank you can pick this to gank bot or mid lane, your Q + W into your team of an enemy ADC will most of the time have him/her killed.

3.png SAFETY PICK

Should you have a 157.png mid you want this to drastically reduce his damage output, you also want this for enemies who might escape using their speed rather than a dash ability. I suggest you to not pick this with Ignite but always have flash as it allow you for so many more plays.

Masteries Back to Top

Pretty straight, I prefer Recovery over Unyielding cause it helps you more early game, when you dont have so much armor and MR, if you have an easy mid matchup you can take Unyielding for a better late game.

I also prefer Insight over Perseverance (see summoner spell section abive) as mid laners are usually jelly and you dont go for a prolonged fight, should the enemy pick an hard matchup or worse another tank go for Perseverance and hope for a good gank from your jungler.

This is my usual pattern, I was never in need of that small healing while mid lane, if triumphantroar.png makes you feel good then take it at level 10 you really want to max headbutt.png first for the gap closing potential extra damage and lower cooldown.

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    Vs melee AD
    Vs melee / ranged AP
    VS ranged AD / ADC

Core Items

    You will always want these three items in all your matchups, no matter of the opponent in mid lane.

Situational Items

    Pick Merc if they have a lot of cc or strong cc (slows included) otherwise go for speed.
    Pick one, I generally prefer SV as I already have MR on my core items but in some cases you may prefer BV instead.
    Pick this (core) against Yasuo or other strong Crit. champions, also if not mid lane.

Depending how you started the game you may want to rush 3068.png or 3001.png I suggest to buy 1001.png just after your first item. At this point you can finish boots or your second item. Pick 3075.png or 3143.png if against AD (see notes for RO) or you can pick a 3211.png and finish it later accordingly to what you need. If you are snowballing you can build 3116.png for that extra damage or if you are behind in turrets or your bot lane needs some babysitting you can build a 3512.png or a 3056.png to allow your squishes tower dive safely.

VS

Akali

Easy

You will make her cry but beware of her power spike as she can kill you in a prolonged fight, always do short trades and headbutt.png away out of her akalishadowdance.png range. If she ults you first then pulverize.png and headbutt.png her away or under your tower, depending on the case. Always carry a 2043.png and drop it into her akalismokebomb.png she will often run away.

VS

Heimerdinger

Easy

Let him place his turrets mid lane, a good Heimer will spare one but many will drop all they have in a circle. At this point you just need to headbutt.png them one by one away from the creep so you will deny a good portion of farm, shutting him down. Once you have 1057.png you can 4.png + pulverize.png him and then headbutt.png him away from his turrets circle. He is jelly and wont be an issue even if he drops his big turret, a gank is always appreciated.

VS

Katarina

Easy

Similar to Zed I pick this as an example of typical AP mid laner, and similar to Zed also Kat players are prone to tilt if you you kille them easy. If you can bait her into ulting or shadowstep.png you (make sure your pulverize.png is not on cooldown!) it is even better, bad Kat's will do that or will do so on a minion nearby, so be aware of your knockup range. You can then headbutt.png her under your tower or ganking jungler or save it if you are low to stop her ult.

VS

Malphite

Medium

I pick this as an example of someone going a tank champion mid, in particular a really good 54.png should be more hard than medium but you can stale the lane, in this case pick 12.png and roam / gank lanes, if he is good will do the same so follow him or ping if he teleports.

VS

Swain

Hard

Currently I ban him on all my games; his AoE stun and insane high poke with no items make you wish to not match this guy at any cost, he is even worse than a 157.png under some aspects, just avoid picking alistar into him or in case ask to swap lane.

VS

Yasuo

Hard

You can win early levels but this guy can dish some strong damage and his also somewhat ranged respect you, I suggest to not pick Alistar into a clear Yasuo pick or if you can to swap with your top or support. Bad Yasuo players will just make you fat as most are overconfident and yasuoE.png behind you, this is the right time to pulverize.png + headbutt.png them into your turret, dont forget to 14.png if they are low enough.

VS

Zed

Easy

Consider this as any typical AD mid laner, be it Zed, Talon or any other that is usually picked as mid laner and doesn't falls under other matchups listed here. Zed players are one of those prone to tilt if you do well against them, good Zed's will just ignore you and roam but if they tryhard on you just get fed.

Other Matchups Back to Top

If you need clues on how to win other matchups let me know in the comment and I'll update the section, I have picked a few representing a champion category. While all champions are somewhat different if you do well you will win or at worse even against any typical mid laner, just beware of 157.png and any other high crit / ranged champions.
