Summoner Spells Back to Top

14.pngprovides additional target damage and decreases the HP regeneration by 50% which is necessary to shut down the enemy AP or AD carry.
12.pngcan be used for additional roaming if there is sufficient or absolutely no kill pressure during the laning phase. I never use defensive spells like  21.png even against  105_64.png or 238_64.png. Against those u might choose 3.png.

You should decide by yourself how you want to play during the laning phase. I prefer poking a lot and staying in range, so I max  Q. Diana is weak pre 6 so you should consider doing that as well. Moonfall can be useful when getting ganked - it can be used to slow the enemy while he is chasing you. It's your only CC.

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    Lately meta changed a bit so that u need to lane against heavy poke (Azir, Ahri, Orianna, ...) so that i prefer starting with Flask laning defensively until lvl 6. You might reconsider buying Doran's at your first back for a bit of sustain in the early game.
    I always get Mercury's Treads.

Core Items

    Nashor's Tooth is my personal favourite as first item lately. Strong clear, nice use of passive.
    Against AP threat, also possible to pick up first. Especially profitable if playing against AP mid and jungle / AP mid and top.
    Works very well with Nashor's tooth.
    Main Damage Items, Luden's provides additional movement speed.
    Useful against AD lane and great to initiate fights with hourglass.

Situational Items

    It's up to you whether you want to choose one of these. Combine Lich Bane with Nashor's Tooth and Luden's Echo for more 1-shot-potential.
    Defense u might want to pick up if u get caught often not being able to deal sufficient damage in teamfights.

VS

Ahri

Medium

A lot of poke pre 6. High mobility with her Ultimate = hard to kill. 

Try to harass with Q before all-in. Ask for a gank while her Ultimate is on cooldown (110/95/80 sec.).

VS

Akali

Medium

Strong snowball, if getting advantages. Akali has good sustain and a lot of harass, but you can win 1v1 all-in if you both are even in farm and lvl. Use pink wards to spot her while she tries to espace with her field. 

VS

Anivia

Easy

Don't take too much harass pre 6! With your ultimate you can all-in her and win trades. Anivia will try to farm passively and have more impact during teamfights -> if this is happening try to kill the minion waves and look for opportunities to roam!

VS

Annie

Medium

Ranged and high burst! Be aware of her abilities. Don't risk an all-in without poking her from distance before that. After every 4 abilities cast, Annie's next ability will stun all damaged enemies! -> DISTANCE!

VS

Brand

Medium

Also ranged with the possibility of high burst. Don't engage onto him as long as all of his spells are available. 

VS

Cassiopeia

Hard
I never made any good experience during a laning phase against Cassiopeia. Her early harass is insane and will force you to go back early. Try to dodge her abilities and try to farm but don't take much risk. 

VS

Diana

Medium

Mirror match-up... "who hits more Q's" -> Use your combo when you feel confident enough. I personally don't like mirror match-ups but sometimes it will occure. Try to outfarm the enemy. If you stay even and don't get any advantages you pretty much are reliant on other lanes/jungler.

VS

Fizz

Medium

High snowball on both sides. Pick barrier. Play with his cooldowns (shield against his aggression f.e.).

VS

Galio

Hard

Not really worth it to "trade him" because he will win these trades anyway. Focus on other lanes and try to outfarm him. 

VS

Karma

Hard

High burst and strong early game + not scailing off during the game...

Impact other lanes. Outfarming won't work. 

VS

Karthus

Easy

Farm until lvl 6 and then all-in him. Dodge his Q's which should be pretty easy. Karthus needs long fights to come out ahead. 

VS

Kassadin

Medium

With the newest Kassadin updates he really became even stronger (at least pre 6) because he can provide higher burst than you. Impact other lanes, you won't have much fun trying to kill him. A good Kassadin is unkillable during the laning phase. 

VS

Katarina

Easy

She should never be able to kill you 1v1 if you stay patient enough. Use your E to interrupt her ultimate if possible. Be aware of her roaming! Don't let her snowball. In general you should deal more damage.

VS

LeBlanc

Medium

Dangerous snowball, but evitable. Leblanc is squishy so poke her with Q and only all-in her after 6 if you feel confident enough. Creating advantages for your team should not be that hard. 

VS

Lissandra

Medium

Rarely seen during the last months but becoming popular since approx. 1 month. With her kit she shouldn't die to you but in my experience i win 85%  of the games. If she uses her E it's an indicator for an aggressive move. 

VS

Lux

Medium

Lately this match-up became really annoying. Unexperienced Lux players underestimate the power of a Diana all-in. Smart Lux players will stay in range and just clear the waves without giving you any possibility to use your combo. Try to time your aggression properly and you should have windows in which you can kill her.

VS

Malzahar

Hard

Hard to deal with! Never pick Diana into Malzahar. Level 6 he can 100-0 you. Don't try to trade him if you realize that he know what he is doing. Diana has more impact during teamfights. Your team should get Bandshee's Veil pretty early / support should get Mikael's.

VS

Mordekaiser

Hard

Read through his abilities. You need to know what he can do and why he is considered being so incredibly strong in this match-up. Big harassment. Diana shouldn't have enough kill potential. 

VS

Orianna

Medium

Rather easy match-up. A good Orianna can bully Diana out of lane with early poke and outfarm her. In general you can burst her down lvl 6+.

VS

Swain

Hard

Simmular to Malzahar. High burst and snowball potential. Do not underestimate his spell vamp (R). If you play patiently enough, you can outsmart/outplay a Swain at a certain point (jungle presence f.e.).

VS

Syndra

Medium

Skill based match-up. Syndra will try to bully you out of lane early. You can try to force an all-in after lvl 6. Be aware of how many spheres are on the ground. Keep in mind that her stun is not the weakest. 

VS

Talon

Medium

Build Zhonya's if you can't get ahead. If you begin to snowball he should never ever win a 1v1 trade until he is full build. Return the damage if he uses his E to get close to you. 

VS

Twisted Fate

Easy

Considered being an easy match-up. As usually don't take too much damage pre lvl6, which shouldn't be a problem. He has low AA range. You can engage since lvl 6 when he used his W and can't pull out the stun card that fast. 

VS

Xerath

Medium

Xerath won't try to kill you. If he misses too many spells you should win the all-in. Try to work with his cooldowns on Q and W to get closer to him. Try to impact other lanes, which is the best way to win the game. Otherwise he will just farm and at some point deal too much damage.

VS

Yasuo

Medium

Heavy Snowball. Pop his shield and poke a bit before you try to all-in him. He can deal a lot of damage with his Infinity Edge and Statikk Shiv. Do not stay in melee range for too much time. Yasuo has better chances in this match-up in my opinion. 

VS

Zed

Medium

Diana is a decent pick against Zed if played properly. Get Zhonyas against Zed and time your damage. Consider taking Barrier and you should win all-in fights lvl 6+.

VS

Ziggs

Easy

After the Ziggs nerf rarely seen played effectively. He deals a lot less damage than you in a short period of time. In teamfights Ziggs can shine so get advantages by killing him lvl 6+ or ganking other lanes. 

Caution! Back to Top

Guys! Please be aware of this information:

Always keep in mind that a blind Pick can cost you the game, try to counterpick or rather pick safe ranged Mid laners (Azir, Ahri, Orianna, Xerath). As you can see in the "Matchup"-section there are only few Matchups in which Diana has the upper hand. This is why you need to practise a lot in normal games. I know that feeling when you need to read through someone's abilities and remind yourself of how a Champion should be played. If you know a Champion by heart, you can focus even harder on CS'ing, poking, map awareness and the game in general. 

Up to now I could climb the ladder until 2,4k elo (about Diamond 2). I used Diana as my alltime comfortable pick but always tried to develop my personal champion pool, which you should do as well! I wouldn't recommend to learn 1 champion and leave everyone else. There will be a point where you simply won't succeed. The most important thing is to gain general game knowledge which will bring you even further ahead. 

I wish you the very best of luck and skill! :)
