New Runes Back to Top

There are 2 main ways to play Gp in seazon 8, and there are a lot of decisions when it comes to runes, these are the ones that I came up with and I really like.




***If you can poke the enemy***
---Kleptomancy.png?width=64If you are going for a Kleptomancy rune page do this against tanks and good matchups, you can literally farm  tanks with this.
---Biscuit%20Delivery.png?width=32 or Perfect%20Timing.png?width=32 Here if you ever find yourself against a high damage poke lane (126.png127.png17.pngnot that i suggest getting kleptomancy in these matchups therefore making perfect timing best in any circumstance) biscuit delivery is not bad, against teams that can dive you I suggest perfect timing (19.png64.png164.png92.pngsome examples of champions that will can can easily dive you)
---Futures%20Market.png?width=32 or Magical%20Footwear.png?width=32 Some people like future's market, however I don't think its a good rune in general, has to be used with caution magical footwear is good since you rarely want to upgrade or spend money on boots on Gp, the bonus ms and free gold is really good, also the reduction for the boots upgrade is quite nice if you ever need Mr/Armor  in a game.
---Cosmic%20Insight.png?width=32 or Celestial%20Body.png?width=32 Cosmic insight is good in winning matchups, the fact that you can get your ult cd down is good however most people don't value the power of celestial body in hard lanes, 100 hp is nothing to laugh at.
---Transcendence.png?width=32 orScorch.png?width=32orThe%20Ultimate%20Hat.png?width=32 You get these as the secondary options all the time. Any combination works, if you are going for the Grasp i suggest you pick ultimate hat, otherwise scorch transcendence should do the trick.

---Grasp%20of%20the%20Undying.png?width=64Not much to talk about grasp, you don't have any other viable choices if you are going to go for resolve you pick those options all the time. you could consider going for Overgrowth.png?width=32

This is standard, 

NOTE that if you are being destroyed in lane you should go for w removescurvy.pngsecond/ if you are doing very well go for a second point in qparley.png at level 3 and then follow it up with a point in wremovescurvy.png at level 4.
3901.png______3902.png______3903.png
Standard, Death's daughter is not as good anymore without Tld so go for fire at will, Raise morale is still shit, its too situational.

VS

Ahri

Hard
You can't do much, you cant barrel her in a straight up 1v1 and she can just all in you, play safe wait for ganks.
Its really bad since you can't even poke her without getting all inned.

VS

Akali

Easy

Barrel inside her w and outpoke her, you can beat her 24/7.

Her whole kit gets countered by 75G, try to orange before she ignites you.
I reccomend exhaust.

VS

Anivia

Easy

Cleanse-kill-repeat, Take thunderlords.


VS

Annie

Hard

She has too much damageinfernalguardian.png even if you cleanseremovescurvy.png her stunanniepassive.png

Poke her when her wincinerate.png and qdisintegrate.png are down. Farm with your q as much as possible.

VS

Aurelion Sol

Medium

He pushes you under toweraurelionsolW.png but you can just farm easy with ur qparley.png.

If he roamsaurelionsolE.png do it too and you will be better than him later on in the game.
Take thunderlords.

VS

Azir

Hard

Its a hard matchup since his basic attacks and his soldiersazirW.png have and instant animation to their aa's. You can't get on(gangplankpassive.png is useless) him because you are going to get pushedazirR.png away and lategame you might not do as much as him if you are not good.

Your wremovescurvy.png is useless since he has no soft cc and if you try to poke himparley.png he will do it back to youazirQ.pngazirW.png and it will not be kind.
Take thunderlords.

VS

Brand

Medium

Tricky, just farm here.

You can easily combo himparley.pngraisemorale.png but u cannever all in him because of his whole kit.
Pokingparley.png doesn't do shit since he canbrandfissure.png and he will win the trade
Take exh.

VS

Camille

Hard

She can abuse you, stay away form this matchup, if you ever find yourself in it just play safe, phage first hug tower.

VS

Cassiopeia

Hard

She shits on you. nothing to really do besides farm.

Take exh.

VS

Cho'Gath

Easy

This one tilts me personally, care levels 1-3, his evorpalspikes.png is retarded.

Only fight after you have your triforce3078.png.
You can cleanseremovescurvy.png his wferalscream.png but i suggest keeping it to bait his ultimatefeast.png and survive.
Your movemetspeedgangplankpassive.png will win you this matchup

VS

Darius

Easy

Play it well and stay safe, the only way darius is going to beat you is if he has more MOVEMENT SPEED1001.png than you, wait untill you have boots1001.png sheen3057.png and phage3044.png. Afterwards pokeparley.png him down and heal after he pullsdariusaxegrabcone.png you, do not all in unless he has 40-50% hp.

VS

Diana

Medium

You beat her until she gets her items, push a lead and try to stick with it until lategame, I suggest ganking here.

VS

Dr. Mundo

Medium

Reset with barrelsraisemorale.png get the grivieus whounds item3033.png if needed.

His wburningagony.png+sunfire3751.png is cancer, be carefull.
If you reset your gangplankpassive.png you will win easy.

VS

Ekko

Medium

Very skill based, if u do not have a barrelraisemorale.png on you at all times he will all in youekkoQ.pngekkoE.png.

you should always pokeparley.png in this matchup since he has no sustain and he will run out of hp quickly.
His only true ccekkoW.png is easy to dodge and is cleansableremovescurvy.png so he should stand no chance in an all in.

VS

Fiora

Medium

Very skill-based, if you are good at gp you will win with just your pokeparley.png.

This is standard on gp but here this rule is golden: always have one barrelraisemorale.png placed down behind you, ALWAYS.
If  you do not have one play safe, fioras will all in youfioradance.pngfioraq.png immediatly and there is no escape(if you have a barrel you can pop it and you will gain ms, while good fioras will w your barrel this puts her on an annimation and you can run), pokeparley.png wins you the laning phase.

VS

Fizz

Hard

This is bs, he can knockfizzmarinerdoom.png you up and dodgefizzjump.png every one of your skills.

Get hexdrinker if you are not ahead and always take exhaust, aim for a roam playstyle instead of a farming one, just gtfo dont stay near him.

VS

Garen

Easy

Kite reset outsmart. Nothing he can do.

Just resetgangplankpassive.png with raisemorale.png, and slow his garenslash3.png you can also outrun hisgarenbladestorm.png and you will find he has no damage.
Cleanse hisremovescurvy.png and drop yourcannonbarrage.png ontop of you if he goes all in and you will win.

VS

Gnar

Medium

Not really the hardest, can'y make use of Klepto wich is annoying 

VS

Illaoi

Medium

Tricky, similar to darius avoid all in's, only go in if she is 30-40%.

Sheen is your only hope, she can really fuck your barrelsraisemorale.png up with her willaoiW.png.
Get swiftess3009.png against her, they are very good, this is a skill based matchup.

VS

Irelia

Easy

Play it correctly and you will destroy her ass.

Pay attention to her skills if she took qireliagatotsu.png/wireliahitenstyle.png level one just zonegangplankpassive.png her and pokeparley.png her. If she took eireliaequilibriumstrike.png first just pokeparley.png until 3 and then you can all in, your wremovescurvy.png will ensure you get your passivgangplankpassive.pnge and barrelsraisemorale.png. If you have a lead its very easy.

VS

Jax

Easy

You can just wremovescurvy.png his  stunjaxcounterstrike.png and eraisemorale.png his dodgejaxcounterstrike.png, thought i'd add it since i can see jax starting to be good with the new triforce.

Poke him alot and you will win easy. 
Always have a raisemorale.png under your ass.

VS

Jayce

Hard

Farm, he can outpoke you and if you try to qparley.png him he will go injayceQ.pngjayceE.png and kill you.

VS

Karma

Medium

Play safe and farm in this one, nothing special.

VS

Karthus

Easy

Cleanseremovescurvy.png wwallofpain.png dodge and kill.

His basic is shit, you are one of the best champions against him, since you are lategame and you can push a lead on him(HES ALSO LATEGAME) you will win 90%
Hes only damage comes fromdefile.png, his laywaste.png is useless because you canparley.pngraisemorale.png and dodge it EASY.
Take thunderlords.

VS

Kassadin

Easy

His kit is useless against you, bully him.

His passivekassadinpassive.png is useless his qnulllance.png is also useless.
Pokeparley.png him as much a posible and avoid going lategame with him.

VS

Katarina

Medium

Bully her before 6 and at 6 with your lead you can beat her.

Its easy to get combos  parley.pngraisemorale.png on her and reset your gangplankpassive.png also clease after she e's shadowstep.png you and before she r'sdeathlotus.png you.
Take thunderlords.

VS

Kayle

Medium

So-so depends on your skill, outpoke her since she can't do much and she will bait herself into wasting her already low mana-poll in her heal.

VS

Kennen

Medium

Win pre 6.

You can wremovescurvy.png his kennenpassive.png and poke himparley.png as much as possible since his sustain is not there. :P
Take thunderlords.

VS

Kled

Medium

This one is a medium-->hard matchup, i don't have much experience but you can abuse the fact that his W has a 20-sec cd early game and you can trade very nicely, this matchup is not really that hard because if you get his mount down he will just die instantly to you.

Your damage is so good vs him when he is small because his ms is SHIT and he can't do anything besides fight you, thats bad when you have a barrel on you isn't it?

VS

LeBlanc

Hard

She is a bitch. Its very hard to even damage her.

Just play safe and get hexdrinker3155.png first, try not to feed her and go for a roaming playstyle.

VS

Lissandra

Medium

This matchup i playe vs gp and it was hard to kill him.

Cleanseremovescurvy.png his lissandraR.png or if he uses that on him just prepare a parley.pngraisemorale.png.
Your passivegangplankpassive.png will not be really good but your comboparley.pngraisemorale.png will do so much since her auto is shit.

VS

Lux

Easy

You insta herraisemorale.png and her auto is shit.

Cleanse her removescurvy.png and you can avoid her luxmalicecannon.png. You win this very easy.
Take thunderlords.

VS

Malphite

Hard

Boy he's good against you, in-lane your passivegangplankpassive.png will be useless since he can elandslide.png you and if he all ins you can't heal up or escapeufslash.png.

Just poke at all times and keep his malphitepassive.png down.

VS

Maokai

Hard

If maokai is not retarded he beats the shit out of you with his immunitymaokaiunstablegrowth.png and tankinessmaokaidrain3.png.

If you can reset your passivegangplankpassive.png do it and all in only if you manage it. useremovescurvy.png when low hp.
Your pokeparley.png is not great because of hismaokaipassive.png.

VS

Nautilus

Medium

You have to play around his shieldnautiluspiercinggaze.png, reset your passivegangplankpassive.png with eraisemorale.png and you will win this, lategame however his spread-out cc nautilusgrandline.pngnautilusanchordrag.pngnautilussplashzone.pngis going to be a nightmare.

VS

Olaf

Hard

 He all in's you die. Avoid him 

Avoid his all inolafragnarok.pngolaffrenziedstrikes.png  and use your removescurvy.png to heal rather than cleanse his olafaxethrowcast.png because the constant slow will beat your one-time cleanse.
Pokeparley.png but don't go overboard and never overextend, always have a barrelraisemorale.png on you for the ms.

VS

Orianna

Medium

This is a so-so lane its skillbased try not to eat her basic attacks oriannapassive.pngbecause she deals a lot of dmg with those.

She can't pop or avoid your barrels raisemorale.png so combo her.
Poking parley.pnghere doesn't do much orianaredactcommand.pngso fake all in's until she is low or she waists herorianadetonatecommand.png.

VS

Pantheon

Hard

Play for lategame, his passivepantheonpassive.png counters yoursgangplankpassive.png and his wpantheon_leapbash.png also counters you(resets his passive)  if he gets ahead eary you are fucked.

Try to avoid his pantheon_throw.png and never all in, you want to rush phage first here since sheen is uselesspantheonpassive.png.
Take exh.

VS

Poppy

Medium

Skill based, a bit harsh for you but you can get to mid/late game easy with her in lane and you'l beat her.

Beware of her passivepoppypassive.png since it fucks your barrelsraisemorale.png, always pop your barrelraisemorale.png when she tries to aa it with her passivepoppypassive.png, after that you can all in and you will have a HUGE advantage.

VS

Renekton

Medium

Just play safe and heal up. Trade agresive after he e-w-q-e you and poke if he has his poke up. After 6 just farm never go in or try to poke.

VS

Rengar

Hard

Take exh and stay under your tower.

He can just jump on yourengarpassive.png and kill your barrelsraisemorale.png ez cleansingremovescurvy.png is kinda useless here since his rengarE.png is not the best of cc's so use removescurvy.png to heal up when low hp.

VS

Riven

Hard

You beat her before 4, after 4 just poke. At 6 if you have a lead(2-0) just poke, if not just call help from your jungler.

HAVE A BARRELraisemorale.png ON YOU at all times, her cc rivenmartyr.png riventricleave.png is not really cleansableremovescurvy.png since ones a knockback and one a one second stun... :/ use your wremovescurvy.png to heal when low hp and avoid getting executed by her rivenfengshuiengine.png.

VS

Rumble

Medium

Trade before he gets his Haunting Guise 3136.pngafter that just poke.

If you get an early lead you can easily snowball the lane.

VS

Ryze

Hard

He zones you, its hard atm i will update this after his rework and i will let you know.

For now its a good counter and lategame he will be same if not as strong as you.

VS

Sion

Easy

If you reset your passivegangplankpassive.png its easy, while he is charging his q just combo him and reset passive.

VS

Sivir

Hard

VS

Swain

Hard

Hes op just ban swain.

VS

Syndra

Medium

Skill based. If she starts spamming syndraQ.png just leave her alone until she goes oom.

You can cleanse syndraQ.png+syndraE.png but the knockback still remains and she outranges you, try to comboparley.pngraisemorale.png her as much as possible and only go in after you do so.
Take thunderlords.

VS

Taliyah

Medium

You outscale her, play laningphase extremly passive.

She can fuck you up earlygame taliyahQ.png but she has only one avoidable escape taliyahW.png.
You can all in her easy until she gets 3116.png.

VS

Talon

Hard

Play safe.

Your w removescurvy.png is useless since he inly has an ok slowtalonrake.png  he can get on you and kill you and your barrelsraisemorale.png.
Your passivegangplankpassive.png is useless almost at level 6 and he is too speedy to catch.
You might want to go tanky after you build your triforce, get 1031.png  or 1011.png and continue farming.
Take exh.

VS

Thresh

Hard

Spread ccthreshQ.pngthreshE.pngthreshR.png, instant basic, he is more annoying but he can fuck you up so be carefull.

He can easily save anyone with his threshW.png from a barrel combo and trust me, in a teamfight  he will just sit there and auto your barrelsraisemorale.png.
Cheeky bastard.

VS

Trundle

Medium

Poke and avoid his etrundleE.png you will be fine.

The problem here is that he can get on you very easy trundleQ.pngtrundleE.pngtrundleW.png his whole kit is good vs you, he can clear barrelsraisemorale.png very well. You have to have a barrel on your back, simmilar to fiora.
Your passivegangplankpassive.png comes into play very well and if you can reset it you will win. Never all in him.

VS

Tryndamere

Easy

Easily outplayable just wremovescurvy.png his slow mockingshout.pngand kite him with your ultcannonbarrage.png, e raisemorale.pngad passivegangplankpassive.png.

Never go in for basic attacks since he has ALOT of damage with those critstryndamerepassive.png, play safe and let him go in if he does try to play around with him.

VS

Twisted Fate

Easy

He is squishy and u can w removescurvy.pnghis gold cardpickacard.png, his 6 brings nothing to the 1v1 and hes aa's are nothing too good vs your barrelraisemorale.pngs, bully him out.

If he roams either go with him or support with your ultimate and keep farming.
Take thunderlords.

VS

Veigar

Medium

Kill him before 6, after just farm and you WILL be better lategame.

You can cleanse removescurvy.png his e  veigareventhorizon.png and therefor avoid his veigardarkmatter.png  ult works better on low hp so thats very good for you too since healingremovescurvy.png will keep you alive.
Even thought you have the edge on him i suggest sitting away and farming he can put out bullshit amounts of damage.
Take thunderlords.

VS

Vel'Koz

Easy

Dodge shoot kill. 

Very easy, even thought velkoz's aa's are VERY good you can still one shot him. His ult is velkozR.pnguseless unless he gets you at the edge(you can barrelraisemorale.png him for 1/2 his hp if he stays close to you)
Take thunderlords.

VS

Viktor

Medium

Avoid poke and go in when he screws, just farm in this matchup.

You can cleanseremovescurvy.png his w viktorgravitonfield.png and avoid thicks of his ultimate viktorchaosstorm.png with your speed provided from your passivegangplankpassive.png.
If he clears with his eviktordeathray.png and somehow his q viktorpowertransfer.pngin on cooldown all in him.
you can beat him atm since he is not as strong as he used to be, you still HAVE to be carefull about his poke

VS

Vladimir

Medium

You might be able to kill him before 4 but after he will destroy you.

He can dodge your barrelsvladimirsanguinepool.png and has more sustainvladimirtransfusion.png beating him is possible but you will require an early lead.
He is not that op anymore, you might have a chance if you know how to reset passive.

VS

Volibear

Easy

Just kite him with your barrel.raisemorale.png

The slow it provides and the reset un your passive gangplankpassive.pngwill shred him.

VS

Wukong

Easy

Poke, same as fiora, always have a barrel and you are going to win 80%.

VS

Xerath

Easy

Cleanse his exerathmagechains.png and wxerathlocusofpower.png and avoid every xeratharcanopulse.png its very easy, also his basics are bad so juts combo himparley.pngraisemorale.png.

VS

Yasuo

Medium

Bully him, you can start with a sapphire crystal1027.png and just rush your sheen3057.png, KILL HIM. :)

He can wind wallyasuoW.png your q parley.png but your q is on a 4-3 second cooldown and his windwal on a 20+.

VS

Zed

Hard

He shits on you, he can dodge and kill you.zedE.pngzedR.png

You have to only play agresive until level 4.
Take exh.

VS

Ziggs

Easy

Hes squishy u can just one shot him.

You can avoid everything with your ms and his basics are shit, barel combosraisemorale.png will be easy.
Take thunderlords.

VS

Zoe

Easy

Its honestly easy, she can't do much vs you, can just cleanse her zoee.png.
