Summoner Spells Back to Top

So 4.png is an obvious choice on 61.png since you're a gap closerless champion and you need it to avoid getting camped etc...

6.png is one of the most common choices since it gives you the ability to escape certain ganks ( if you're properly positioned in lane), and makes you get faster to skirmishes and ganks. Alse against champions like 103.png,99.png,101.png,34.png who rely on hitting a skillshot to kill you, popping ghost at the right moment to dodge it can make you win the lane quite easely.

1.png is a must against double cc mid-jungler such as 60.png + 134.png1.png + 57.png etc.. using cleanse on the first cc might lead you to avoid having to use flash, if you're  properly positioned in the lane.

21.png is a good choice against heavy burst champions like 134.png1.png etc..  Since they only beat you when they burst you down ( your dps is one of the highest among all mid champions ), surviving the burst with this summoner can make you win these matchups.

3.png is a good choice against assassins such as 238.png157.png91.png84.png55.png who rely on getting close to you to burst you down, so exhausting them should be easy and most times should save your life.
Also 3.png is a good choice if you think you won't need a summoner to win the lane and the enemy comp has a bruiser/assassin top like 58.png92.png157.png who can get really denied by a well timed exhaust in teamfights.

New Runes Back to Top

Masteries Back to Top

First mastery page:

The first page is really safe, you take 6143.png over 6142.png to surviver burst and to have a more sustained damage ( Orianna's main focus in most games is surviving and farming until you reach a good power spike ), and you take 6332.png over 6331.png to avoid going oom and because even if you go Out of mana, having your orianaizunacommand.png costing only 30 to 50 mana, with 6332.png you will have the necessary mana to use it very quickly.

231.png

Second mastery page:

The second page instead is more aggressive and is used when you know you can snowball the game and kill your lane opponent. I suggest this page especially against melees like 55.png238.png91.png, who can be punished very hard in laning phase.

Chosing as first the right skill is vital in some matchups. You start either orianaredactcommand.png or orianaizunacommand.png depending on the matchup.
Starting orianaredactcommand.png makes you able to trade autos even in the minionwave since you will have your passive adding up damage, your orianaredactcommand.png gives you a shield and added armor and magic resist so you can exploit many melee matchups with this ability; be careful not to trade to much into minions or letting your enemy push you in too much because most melees have a good level 2 all in.  orianaizunacommand.png Start instead gives you more push power and makes you trade with rangeds decently.

During laning phase you never want your ball to stand still on yourself but you always want to put it close  to enemy minionwaves so that the distance between the ball and the enemy is low and you can hit way more easely.
Use your orianaizunacommand.png to position your ball, then use orianaizunacommand.png + orianadissonancecommand.png and orianaredactcommand.png for a quick 6362.png or orianaizunacommand.png + orianadissonancecommand.png + AA to proc 6362.png.
 If you do auto attack make sure you dont take too much damage from minions or it won't be worth.
Nothe that the level 3 skill isn't always orianaizunacommand.png but some times is better to takeorianaredactcommand.png especially if you plan to trade and not to only poke.

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

Core Items

Situational Items

There's not really much choice with your starting items, you need 1056.png to sustain your mana ( you would be forced to recall too often with 2033.png  since you're a heavy spell spamming champion ), at your first back you should be able to afford 3802.png ( super necessary for your mana ) + 2031.png + 2055.png or 1001.png, if not so I suggest taking 1082.png which provides you some mana, and 2031.png.

Your first core item is always 3165.png, though you might want to take 3020.png just after your lost chapter if you feel like you need to move a lot on the map or you need to dodge skillshots etc..
As second core you either want to buy 3285.png or 3151.png

3151.png gives you flat penetration which is perfect for killing champions who doesn't have any magic resistance ( If you want the details of why it is better look here https://www.reddit.com/r/summonerschool/comments/66hzgw/facts_about_magic_pen_vs_squishy_targets_void/  ) also provides you some health which is very good against unavoidable damages such as30.png ult,  29.png engages, 35.png engages, etc...

3285.png provides you burst and good movement speed which makes you dance between in and out of range really well which is a must with ori. Also makes you move faster on the map, and waveclear even more quickly.

As third item you either want to buy 3151.png or 3285.png ( the one you didn't buy earlier), or you might want to buy a defensive item such as 3157.png against  champions like 238.png91.png157.png35.png92.png58.png39.png etc.. which dive the backline and  if they're fed you won't stay alive without  this item, or you might want to take 3102.png  against champions who rely heavely on getting with a specific cc to kill you such as 134.png's combo, 1.png's stun, 99.png's Q, etc.. also both items provide 10% cdr that makes you cap cdr if you took scaling cdr runes.

3135.png is an obvious choice when enemies get 100 or more magic resist, if not 3089.png stays a super powerful item and will make your orianadetonatecommand.png+orianadissonancecommand.png combo oneshot enemies.

VS

Ahri

Medium

This is a skill matchup. You should be able to win early trades by putting the ball close to minions so that the travel time of your orianaizunacommand.png to hit the enemy is lower and he will have less room to dodge.
1.png might be needed especially if the enemy team has a heavy cc jungler, otherwise 21.png or 6.png are really good choices.
Try getting 3020.png at your second back ( after 3802.png has been bought ) so that it will be easier to dodge her skillshots.
After 6 she can all in you so if you didn't exploit your advantage earlier, facing her might be a problem. Anyways, dodge her ahriseduce.png and you should be fine.
Most probably 103.png will try to roam and get fed or get her team fed, try then hard pushing the lane ( if the enemy jungler isn't around), and make her stay under her tower. If you can't do that, a ward in lane can help you understanding where she is going to roam so you can spam back pings to help your team.

VS

Anivia

Easy

This matchup should be fairly easy. You win quite hard trades early on if you dodge her flashfrost.png. If you want you can use mov speed quints to help you doing it, and buy early 3020.png to help with the dodging. 
At level 6 you can try freezing in front of your tower and all in her by popping 6.png to dodge her flashfrost.png and keeping her in range. Keep also in mind your orianadetonatecommand.png interrupts her glacialstorm.png so it should be a fairly easy fight. Don't be baited by her aniviapassive.png and keep track of it.

VS

Annie

Medium

This matchup is fine as long as you don't get bursted at level 6. Therefore I would recommend getting 21.png to avoid it. your early laning phase should be easy since you outrange her if you place correctly your ball close to enemy minions and dance between orianaizunacommand.png range, but keep also in mind that she has a really easy time helping enemy jungler with ganks with her anniepassive.png.

VS

Aurelion Sol

Medium

Actually this matchup shouldn't be hard but you have to know when to fight him to avoid stupid deaths. First of all his level 1 is one of the strongest in the game, don't try fighting him, just let him push if he pops his aurelionsolw.png since it has a high mana cost and you the lane will anyways reset after first minion wave.
After level 1 you can try and trade with him but it's always a skill reliant move since if he gets to allin you he will win, and it's not easy to avoid it if he plays 6361.png.
Respect his early game try poking with your range advantage, and avoid getting ganked.
After 4 if you didn't lose trades you can try all in him by popping 6.png and dancing in and out of his aurelionsolw.png. Anyways if you want to be more sure of winning this lane wait for having 3020.png and use mov speed quints, and wait your level 6 so that you can interrupt his aurelionsolw.png with your ulti.
If you manage to kill him in lane you should be able to keep him under tower and avoid him ganking too much. If not he will be annoying and ganking everywhere on the map and you will have to judge if it is better to just push your lane or to roam too.
Later you are stronger so if you manage to stay even you will win.

VS

Azir

Hard

I think this is a hard matchup since you're in a way very similar champions. Great scaling, great laning phase. He will outrange you with his azirw.png + azirqwrapper.png combo and try to poke you down. Therefore, it might sound strange but a 12.png might help you just not losing too hard the lane. The best choice though would be not getting poked too hard and all in him at level 6 with 6.png. Keep track of his mana since his mana costs are really high if he tries too hard to poke you down.

VS

Brand

Easy

This matchup is fairly easy as long as you dodge his brandw.png and brandq.png combo. Use your ball to poke him down, and at 6 all in him with 6.png to dodge his spells. His aim should be just staying alive since the teamfight is where he shines, thogh it's also where you shine so if you punish him in lane you should have an easy time.

VS

Cassiopeia

Medium

This is a skill matchup since your laning phase is better as long as you dodge her cassiopeiaq.png and avoid getting allinned. you poke her down very easely and at 6 you can very easely orianaizunacommand.png+orianadissonancecommand.png+orianadetonatecommand.png combo her since she has no escapes. Getting orianaredactcommand.png level 2 might be a good choice if she gets you with cassiopeiaq.png and tries to kill you with cassiopeiae.png.
Teamfightwise you are able to zone her with your ball but she has very good dps, so if your frontline tries to go too aggressive she might cassiopeiar.png them and kill them quite fast if she's not behind, so try asking your frontline to play defensive and let you zone her instead of diving her.

VS

Corki

Medium

Laning phase should be fairly easy if you avoid trading too many AA, his streangths are his corkipassive.png and his items powerspike. Try poking him down during laning phase. buy as second back 3020.png after you finished 3802.png so that you have as much presence on the map as possible since Corki will be trying to roam as much as possible.
Always alert your allies with pings that he has package. 
Use 6.png if you want to try roaming and answering his roams, or take 7.png to have better skirmish power.

VS

Diana

Easy

Fairly easy matchup since you can punish her for being melee and orianaizunacommand.png + orianadissonancecommand.png + AA combo her with ease. Post 6 she can all in you especially if you didn't punish her enough, 3.png might be a good choice to avoid her killing you and to bait her in a bad situation ( she has no way to get out of the fight once she has dianateleport.png you.)
During teamfights she will try diving the backline so just orianaredactcommand.png the right target and avoid her killing you and your mates. 

VS

Ekko

Medium

Ekko's laning phase is almost non existent since most likely he will try to ekkoq.png the waves and win the push game. punish him as much as possible for being melee, and avoid getting the return damage on ekkoq.png because if he gets it he will poke you you withekkoe.png and get out very quickly or will all in you especially if he has 14.png and 3145.png.
Be careful also when he misses from mid since he will most likely get in FOW to use his ekkow.png and try getting an easy all in on you.
Getting 3.png could be a good choice but remember he could bait it and get out with his ekkor.png so it's better to hold it for teamfights so that if he gets out he won't win it.

VS

Fizz

Medium

as for most melee matchups this should be quite easy. Avoid to push your lane early on because his all in is good even if he has no fizzr.png yet, his fizzw.png damage is quite broken so if he's not much damaged he might try to all in you, especially if he plays with 14.png.
Therefore push as less as possible, and try poking him especially if he tries to go for caster minions. If he's good he should only go for melees or use his fizze.png to get casters but he will get punished for doing so.
After 6 he can all in you very easely if he connects his fizzr.png so you want to respect it and stay at max range to have more room to dodge. Also playing with 21.png might be a good option, 3.png is a bit too slow because he will be targetable only after his fizzr.png + fizze.png have already done their damage if he has allinned you.

VS

Karma

Easy

This matchup should be easy, Karma's playstyle consists in pushing the lane over and over so you want to get as much AP as possible to answer her push. care to avoid getting ganked with her karmaspiritbind.png so dont stay too close.
Aftwer  6 you should be able to all in her fairly easely.
Teamfightwise you're way stronger once you have 3 items, but her base damages are pretty high so midgame could be not too easy to win them.

VS

Kassadin

Medium

The laning phase should be almost even since you can trade lvl 1 orianaredactcommand.png  + AA with his nulllance.png (be careful not take too much dmg from minions though).
Always wait for him to nulllance.png before punishing him with orianaizunacommand.png + orianadissonancecommand.png + AA / orianaredactcommand.png because if he does while you try to combo him he will get his shield from nulllance.png and go even / win the trade, so wait for him to nulllance.png you, baiting him going in range, use your orianaredactcommand.png, and then punish him if he tries to farm when his nulllance.png is on cd.
This way you should be able to win this matchup.
After laning phase he will try to roam so keep the lane pushed if you can, and punish him by taking tower or by outroaming him with your 6.png.
Teamfightwise should be pretty simple as long as he is not snowballed.

VS

Katarina

Medium

Pretty easy laning phase if you know her a bit.
First of all you don't want to push the lane against her ( she will getting it pushed anyways coz her katarinaq.png is an autopush ability), try freezing the lane in front of your tower so she can't all in you without taking tower damage. Punish her for being melee by comboing with orianaizunacommand.png + orianadissonancecommand.png + AA / orianaredactcommand.png, she won't be able to answer back if you froze the lane in right position.
Careful because her all in is pretty op if she bought an early 3145.png and might be able to kill you with his ult if you dont respect her, I suggest taking 21.png or 3.png to counter her heavy burst. If you got  enough advantage she will be forced to roam so push hard the lane and take as much vision as possible to avoid her getting fed around.
If she doesn't snowball you should win fairly easely.

VS

LeBlanc

Medium

In this matchup you want to start orianaredactcommand.png to avoid getting harassed with leblancq.png.
Be careful at her level  2 she might try leblancw.png in and leblancq.png you to proc 6362.png so you have to respect that especially if she plays with 14.png and might be able to kill you that way.
from level 3 you can trade with her but you have to wait for her to use leblancw.png first or you'll end up using orianaizunacommand.png + orianadissonancecommand.png  where she first used leblancw.png missing your skillshots doing so.
Wait for her to come in with leblancw.png and combo her with orianaizunacommand.png + orianadissonancecommand.png + orianaredactcommand.png.
If she doesn't snowball she should not be a problem.

VS

Lissandra

Easy

This matchup should be fairly easy as long as you poke her down and dodge her lissandraq.png;
Also be really aware of jungler's position because 127.png is really good at setting up ganks for her jungler; a 1.png might be a good choice in this matchup. She is slow scaling and her usual item path is not that strong in this patch so you should be able to win lane and teamfights with ease if the enemy jungler isn't camping you.

VS

Malzahar

Medium

As for most matchups you should be able to win this matchup and he will try only pushing you into your tower. Take as much ap as possible to answer the push.
You can win the all in at level 6 if you take 21.png and dont get bursted by hismalzaharr.png + malzaharw.png, he will most likely ask his jungler to help him at 6 since he can set up the gank really easely with his malzaharr.png so be aware.
If you avoid dying and stay even  you will be able to outscale him since your teamfight is stronger.

VS

Swain

Medium

Before level 6 this matchup should be easy since you can trade with a shield to soak up his swaintorment.png / swaindecrepify.png damage, and you can use movement speed quints to dodge his swainshadowgrasp.png.
if his swainshadowgrasp.png doesn't connect you should be safe, but after level 6 unless you have a good advantage or have 14.png, which is not an optimal summoner in most cases, you will not win the all in.
Though 50.png is a gapcloserless champion so he's very susceptible to ganks, and outside his ult he doesn't really have a hard pushing ability ( swaindecrepify.png doesn push abit but not as much as your orianaizunacommand.png + orianadissonancecommand.png ) so you should be able to control the lane as you please.
If he doesn't snowball he is not a problem.

VS

Syndra

Medium

Skill matchup. A lot depends on your ability to dodge her syndraq.png and her syndrae.png combo.
Her level 1 is stronger than yours, so you will have to dodge a lot of syndraq.png if you want to be successful. you can either start orianaizunacommand.png and try to trade or start orianaredactcommand.png if you want to have a safer time; note that if she's good she will understand that if you start orianaredactcommand.png she will be able to outpush you and get lvl 2 faster and punish you for that.
If you started orianaizunacommand.png get orianadissonancecommand.png level 2 and try to combo her with AA to proc 6362.png.
After 3 be aware of the enemy jungler because her syndraq.png+syndrae.png  / syndraw.pngsyndrae.png combo has a really long range so it can setup a gank quite easely for her jungler.
At level 6  she will try to burst you down so a 21.png will be very usefull, if you survive you should be able to kill her since your dps is higher.
During teamfights your ball should be able to zone her and combo her down if she doesn't respect it.

VS

Taliyah

Medium

The laning phase should be easy ( in fact she will most likely try to push as much as she can to avoid trading ), especially if you're able to dodge her taliyahwvc.png.
You can all in her very easely after 6 because her ulti does no damage so you have a skill advantage over her, and popping 6.png will make easy to dodge her taliyahq.png and taliyahwvc.png.
After 6 she will try roaming around and pick up free kills with taliyahr.png so having as much movement speed as possible will ensure you good map presence so you shouldn't fall too much behind from her roams.

VS

Talon

Medium

The laning phase should be simple as long as you don't get the return damage from talonw.png which will make his talonq.png+talonpassive.png deal tons of damage. Note also that he can use talonq.pngon a minion to have a mini gap closer and if he kills the minion he will refund half of the cd, so he can talonq.png the minion to get closer + talonw.png + talonq.png again.
He will most likely run 14.png and I suggest running 21.png against him because his damage is so fast that 3.png wont be useful.
Punish him for being melee but always be aware if his talonw.png.
Be aware of his roams, he is super fast and will most likely get free kills.
get 3157.png quite early or he will kill you too.
During teamfights you're stronger as long as he isn't snowballed.

VS

Twisted Fate

Medium

Easy laning phase thanks to him being squishy and you being the queen of the laning phase.
Dodge her wildcards.png and try zoning him as much as possible. Avoid trading autos if his cardmasterstack.png is up, and be aware of the enemy jungler because his pickacard.png is very good to setup ganks.
1.png can be vital in this situation.
After 6 he will try to roam around so you will need to keep the lane as pushed as possible and to ward the lane to see where he's heading and to ping back your allies.

VS

Veigar

Easy

Easy matchup as long as you avoid getting ganked ( his veigareventhorizon.png is really good at setting up ganks). his veigarbalefulstrike.png will be pushing the lane so you can freeze it in front of the tower and you can easely ask for a gank.
Anyways you shouldn't even need a ganks since you win trades anways.
An early 3102.png will be useful to avoid his veigareventhorizon.png or to avoid his veigarr.png burst.

VS

Vel'Koz

Medium

Skill matchup.
He outranges you and has better level 1 waveclear with velkozw.png
You will need movement speed to dodge his velkoze.png and his numerous skillshots, if you manage to stay safe until level 6, you can try all in him with popping your 6.png and flashing or just dodging his velkoze.png to win the fight.
In teamfights he is really good thanks to his velkozr.png being very long range AOE, but at 3 items you should have more impact as long as he doesn't hit too many targets with his ult.

VS

Viktor

Easy

Skill matchup.
He wins level 1 trades thanks to his viktorpowertransfer.png, so you might either try to get level 2 as fast as possible using orianaizunacommand.png or to answe back with orianaredactcommand.png + AA.
after level 3 you should win trades and at 6 you should win the all in too. 
Actually he should be only trying to farm and poke you with viktordeathray.png which is unavoidable.
During teamfights you can zone him with your ball and combo him with orianadetonatecommand.png+orianadissonancecommand.png if he doesn't respect it.

VS

Vladimir

Medium

You should be stronger early levels but if he gets 3145.png at his first back, his level 6 all in is quite powerful and he might win the 1v1.
Anyways you should be able to win trades early on if you respect his 3rd  vladimirq.png, and if you use 14.png you could try to kill him too. If not just poke him and ask the jungler to help you killing him (especially if he already used vladimirsanguinepool.png).
If he gets behind he is really weak since his roams are not that good, and since his scaling is really slow. 
During teamfight he is very strong and lategame could be winning even against you so you should try forcing fights at your 2-3 items powerspike to close the game before it's too hard.

VS

Yasuo

Medium

Skill matchup. You might want to start orianaredactcommand.png against him especially if he startsyasuodashwrapper.png and tries to trade early. if he starts yasuoqw.png, you should be fine by starting orianaizunacommand.png but be careful about his level 2 engage. Always try to fight him in your minionwave and always try freezing your lane in front of your tower ( he will most likely push because of how yasuodashwrapper.png and yasuoqw.png work ) so that your jungler can get an easy free kill. If he gets camped he is an easy easy target, but even if he doesn't, if your wave is managed the right way, he won't be able to trade without getting tower shots, and then you can try to kill him.
remember that his yasuowmovingwall.png stops your orianaizunacommand.png so keep that in mind if you try to orianaizunacommand.png + orianadissonancecommand.png + orianadetonatecommand.png him. 
His all in is very strong so 3.png can be very useful ( you can put it very soon and avoid a lot of damage from ult). Alse be careful not to overextend because he will be able to gapclose very easely if a minionwave is coming and your 4.png might not be enough to save you.
If he is ahead he might be a real problem ( super infinite pushing power, high mobility, high sustain if he decides to go for lifesteal, and super good teamfight ability if their mates have a knock).
Killing him during laning phase is the key to win.

VS

Zed

Medium

After the recent buffs to lethality items he is quite a threat, though before level 6 you should be fine. Be aware of not taking zede.png+ double zedq.png damage or he might all in you using 14.png + his zedpassive.png. His level 1 is weak so you can zone him with either orianaizunacommand.png or orianaredactcommand.png, and you should be able to combo him with orianaizunacommand.png+orianadissonancecommand.png+ AA / orianaredactcommand.png if he goes melee for creeps. After 6 you have to pay some attenction, I suggest taking 21.png to avoid dying ( 3.png might not be fast enough and won't mitigate 14.png damage), and you should avoid using orianadetonatecommand.png before he has used zedr.png or he will win the all in avoiding all your ult dmg. Use orianadetonatecommand.png when he useszedr.png so you're sure to hit.
Also avoid using orianaredactcommand.png then orianaizunacommand.png if he has his zedr.png up or he can easely all in you and you won't be able to hit him with orianadetonatecommand.png because your orianaredactcommand.png is on cooldown.
If you manage to win lane or to stay even, you should be way more impactful in teamfights, though be careful about his splitpush and roamings, it could carry the game.

VS

Ziggs

Medium

This lane should be easy as long as you stay far from your own minions so that his ziggsq.png won't hit you too easely. careful trading autos with him too cause of his ziggspassive.png.
Once you reach level 6 you should be able to win the all in very easely by popping your 6.png to dodge his ziggsr.png and ziggsq.png.
Outside the 1v1, you have to be very careful not to let him splitpush or push in general since his ziggsw.png and his ziggspassive.png take down towers too quickly.
During teamfights try avoiding choke points or his ziggsr.png can be a big problem, and zone him with your ball.

Early, Mid, and Lategame Back to Top

As Orianna you have to keep in mind that your focus is to scale, you want to hit the 3165.png + 3151.png + 3285.png powerspike as soon as possible. Therefore your playstyle has to be as risk free as possible. Your laning phase is your biggest streangth, you can roam (especially at low elos) but it's always a more risky playstyle than just staying in lane, especially with assassins being played so much in 7.15 (even if the meta is actually double tank though).


Early game: 

Your laning phase is really powerful, place your ball close to the enemy minionwave then when the enemy laner goes for the lasthit punish him with orianaizunacommand.png + orianadissonancecommand.png + AA combo, or orianaizunacommand.png + orianadissonancecommand.png + orianaredactcommand.png combo to proc 6362.png.
Keep in mind where the enemy jungler could be, and play on the opposite side of the lane. The enemy jungler is your biggest enemy and you have to respect him in order to avoid dying.
You can try, especially at lower elos to push and roam with your 6.png to pick up free kills, but always keep in mind the enemy jungler could countergank and the enemy toplaner could have tp.
Try playing around your jungler and your toplaner if you plan to gank bottom.

Mid game:

as for early game you want to play safe, try pushing your lane and prividing vision for objectives with your 2055.png, though do it only if you have defensive summoners or you know where the enemy jungler is. You can try farming some jungle camps but keep in mind you're putting your jungler a bit behind if he is planning on farming them, and avoid giving him a reason to tilt/be upset.

Lategame:

Here is where Orianna shines. Try always to force teamfights where you have vision advantage and where there are choke points for an easy orianadetonatecommand.png + orianadissonancecommand.png combo. 
Positioning during teamfights is key, you first want to drop your ball at your max range and then stay close to your backline ( be sure your ball stays in place though). 
The ball should zone the enemy backline when you get engaged by the enemy frontline; if they try to get in the fight the fastest way for them will be through your ball so punish them for the mistake and combo them.
If your adc is really fed you might want to prioritize protecting him instead of going for the damage on the enemy backline.
orianadetonatecommand.png + orianadissonancecommand.png + orianaizunacommand.png combo should be enough to kill any carry, but your streangth is not only the burst but your ability to outdps almost any midlaner thanks to your orianaizunacommand.png being really low cooldown, so keep in mind that going for the enemy backline is not always the right choice.
