Summoner Spells Back to Top

4.png is mandatory. No choice since it's both a gapcloser and an escape tool.

14.png is for lanes you think you can win. Adds a lot of pressure on your opponent.

12.png is best used when you know it's going to be a farm lane, so you won't miss lots of minions. Plus, you have map/botlane pressure. Ask your Supp/ADC to place a ward in the botlane bush.

1.png can be selected when the enemy team has tons of CCs, moreover you don't have mobility skills, so it's better to prevent being CC'd to death.

21.png / 7.png / 3.png are useful for difficult lanes. Go with 7.png unless your opponent is going to play with 14.png, because it counters you. 3.png is for assassins who need to get close to you, like 105.png / 238.png / 91.png.


New Runes Back to Top

Masteries Back to Top

Ferocity tree: 

- Expose Weakness is because you deal a lot of AoE damage, meaning that in teamfights even your allies will inflict more damage.
- Oppressor is good since it sinergies well with 3116.png.
- Deathfire Touch it's the best keystone mastery for a champion with poison.


Cunning tree:

- Wanderer makes you even faster with the runes and the passive, and since you can now last-hit with cassiopeiatwinfang.png, at level 2-3 you won't need Savagery
- Runic Affinity is because now blue buff it's amazing on midlaners, giving more Mana Regen and 15% AP!

cassiopeiapassive.png  PASSIVE: 
Cassiopeia can't purchase 1001.png, but gains 4 Movement Speed per level, 
for a total of [328 + (4 x level)]

Whitout your old passive, you won't have the AP you used to stack, but being not able to buy boots means you have a whole NEW SPACE FOR ANOTHER AP ITEM.

cassiopeianoxiousblast.png Q (3.5 seconds of cd): 

- After a 0.4 seconds delay, blasts poison in a circle (range 850, radius of the circle 75). 
- Enemies hit take damage each second for 3 seconds. At level 5 does 255 (+ 70% AP) magic damage. 
- If you hit an enemy champion, Cassiopeia gains Movement Speed that decays over 3 seconds (50% at level 5).

With the rework, the Q's scaling was increased to 70% of total AP (from 45%). They shifted some of her power form her cassiopeiatwinfang.png to this skill, that's why i think 3151.png is a very good item for her now, into late game!

cassiopeiamiasma.png W (22 to 14 seconds of cd):

- Spits 8 clouds of poison in an arc. It has a fixed minimum and maximum range (500 and 900).
- They lasts for 5 seconds and do 80 (+15% AP) magic damage per second.
- Enemies in the clouds are slowed (80% at level 5) and GROUNDED (when grounded, you can't use movement skills, including blinks).

This ability got completely reworked, as it has now a new debuff that negate the use of movement skills. The difficulty is getting used to the range, since it's fixed.

cassiopeiatwinfang.png E (0.75 seconds of cd):

- Fires a single target attack to a selected enemy, dealing 52-120 (based on level) (+10% AP) magic damage.
- IF THE TARGET IS POISONED, deals 130 (at level 5) (+35% AP) ADDITIONAL magic damage, and restores 25 (at level 5) (+10% AP) health.
- If it kills the target, the mana cost is REFUNDED.

This ability was slightly nerfed, but her power got shifted to cassiopeianoxiousblast.png, so don't worry. The good part is that now you can farm with it (cooldown of 0.75 seconds). The bad part is that if you don't hit poisoned target you basically don't deal damage, and it does a bit less damage than before the rework.

cassiopeiapetrifyinggaze.png R (120 to 80 seconds of cd):

- After a brief delay, blasts enemies in a cone in front of 69.png, dealing 350 (at level 3) (+50% AP) magic damage.
- Enemies that are facing her get stunned for 2 seconds, otherwise they'll be slowed by 40% for 2 seconds.

The slow on this spell got nerfed from 60% to 40%, but it's no big deal if you can land the stun most of the times. 



THE STUN / DAMAGE STARTS AFTER A BRIEF DELAY, BUT YOU CAN CANCEL IT WITH 4.png
FACE THE RIGHT DIRECTION, AND QUICKLY PRESS cassiopeiapetrifyinggaze.png 4.png.

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    I always start this way, since it's obviously the best to sustain yourself and deal a bit of damage early game.

Core Items

    Buy the Tear as fast as possible, and quickly follow with a Catalyst.
    These are your cores, in order Tear > Catalyst > RoA > Seraph > Rylai's

Situational Items

    A very good combination with her new Q scaling and Rylai's
    Zhonya's if you need Armor or the active, and Abyssal if you need more Magic Resist
    If you need more Movement Speed and still want to do damage
    You already have Magic Penetration from the Liandry's, but this helps a lot when enemies are building Magic Resist. Usually that's around the 4th or 5th item.
    Tons of damage, get it straight after Rylai's if the enemies don't have that much magic resist, otherwise go for Void Staff
BUILD ORDER (CORE ITEMS + RABADON AND LIANDRY'S):


3027.png ROD OF AGES:

This item is super gold-efficient, and when full-stacked gives you 500 health, 400 mana and 100 AP. Absolutely perfect, as it makes you tanky, increases your mana pool a lot, and 100 AP is a really good source of damage. Don't forget the amazing passive tho, since you gain the 15% of damage taken from enemies as mana, and 25% of the mana you spend as health. BUY IT RIGHT AFTER 3070.png, BECAUSE IT NEEDS TIME TO STACK.

3048.png SERAPH'S EMBRACE: 

Gives you 1000 mana, 80 AP. But the best thing about it are the additional effects. 
Grants you AP equal to 3% of maximum mana, and refunds 25% of mana spent for EVERY SPELL. That's perfect for cassiopeiatwinfang.png, that needs to be spammed a lot. 
Plus, the active uses 20% of your current mana to shield you for the same amount + 150. It's very good since if you get caught you'll be in trouble running away.

3116.png RYLAI'S CRYSTAL SCEPTER:

Gives you 400 health and 100 AP, and one of the best passives 69.png can have. Every damaging spell that you land on an enemy slows him by 40% for 1.5 seconds if it's a single target skill ( cassiopeiatwinfang.png ), for 1 second if it's AoE ( cassiopeianoxiousblast.png / cassiopeiamiasma.png / cassiopeiapetrifyinggaze.png ), and by 20% for 1 second if it's a DoT ability ( every tick of poison by cassiopeianoxiousblast.png and cassiopeiamiasma.png ).
You can easily chase or kite your target with this item, that's why it's vital for 69.png.

3089.png RABADON'S DEATHCAP:

Now that she doesn't have her scaling passive anymore, this is absolutely mandatory. A lot of extra damage on every ability.

3151.png LIANDRY'S TORMENT:

Gives you 300 health, 80 AP and +15 Magic Penetration. Its passive adds a damage over time (DoT) that deals 2% of the target's current health each second, for 3 seconds. It's basically another poison.

There are 2 reasons for building this item now:

- The first and most important one is that cassiopeianoxiousblast.png got buffed, and cassiopeiatwinfang.png a bit nerfed. This means she doesn't burst like before (only a bit less, don't worry), but deals A LOT MORE DoT damage. 3151.png really helps.
- The last reason is that when the enemy is slowed (for example, by our 3116.png ) the passive of 3151.png deals DOUBLE DAMAGE. Plus, the health given by the item adds up to the 3116.png's and runes' ones, making you tanky.

Aurelion Sol

Easy

Super easy, just dodge his aurelionsolQ.pngby moving around it, and poke him with cassiopeianoxiousblast.png.

After level 6, if he wants to stun you, he needs to follow his aurelionsolQ.png by facing you.
Just cassiopeiapetrifyinggaze.png and kill him.

VS

Azir

Hard

His soldiers will make it hard for you, try to stand back and wait until he misplays. when he'll azirE.png towards you, cassiopeiapetrifyinggaze.png him.

Or simply ask for ganks.

VS

Brand

Medium

Farm lane. If you want to poke him you can try, but it's risky since he has also a stun pre-6.

VS

Fizz

Medium

Pre-6 you should make him stay away from minions, but don't underestimate im and never enter his fizzpiercingstrike.png range. After 6 it's a lot harder, but here's the trick:

he will try to get in your range with fizzpiercingstrike.png almost every time, so wait until he's in that range and cassiopeiapetrifyinggaze.png. If it's timed correctly he will be stunned mid-dash.

VS

LeBlanc

Hard

BAN HER, or ask for ganks. your only chance is to cassiopeiamiasma.png her right before her leblancslide.png or

cassiopeiapetrifyinggaze.pnging her mid-dash. During the laning phase don't last-hit if you see her going to harass you. It's more worth this way.

VS

Syndra

Medium

Don't try to trade her early on and always be well aware of the position of her balls, since she will search for an opportunity to syndraE.png you. Late game, if she's not fed, with your tankyness you can kill her 1v1. Just farm and ask for ganks.

VS

Twisted Fate

Easy

Poke him limitlessly. Then ask you jungler for a gank or kill him by yourself if you can.

Take 12.png to counter his destiny.pngs or get 1.png: it will help if he stuns you right before you could kill him, or simply to dodge a wildcards.png after his pickacard.png.

VS

Yasuo

Easy

Nothing difficult. Just farm and don't try to poke him, since his yasuoE.png will make you mad.

At level 6 just cassiopeiapetrifyinggaze.png him when there isn't the minion wave and kill him. Your Movement Speed will help you dodging his tornados

VS

Zed

Hard

BAN HIM HOLY MOLY. No seriously, if he's skilled he can stomp you every time.

The only tip possibleis to cassiopeiapetrifyinggaze.png BEHIND you when he zedR.png, because that's where he'll reappear.
