We start off with q since its the best for early trading. We follow up with e to increase our trading damage and w right after sine the resistances and the movespeed is more valuable than a second poin in q.  We max out q for right after just to interrupt it by leveling our ult at lvl 6 and our e at lvl 8. As second skill we max e to increase the stun duration we get from it. And last we max out w.

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    You use the potion for it's good trading and sustain. If you lose health try to activate it while trading to increase your damage output. It's best starting item for poppy by far.
    These 3 items are the core of your build. Bami's cinder is nice for damage over time and health which will result in better trading and suvivability. It's the best item for long trades. Sheen gives you high damage output for shorter trades. Spectre's cowl is important against ap champs in toplane but also nice to have in general once you get ouf of laning since the enemy team is likely to have at least 1 or 2 ap champs. From these items its recommended to build sheen second or third. Never first.

Core Items

    Boots of swiftness give you a better engage and disengage. They also help you a lot when setting up your e. Iceborn gives you a lot of cdr and allows you to stick to your target. Sunfire will give you faster waveclear and trading potential in longer fights. Banshees is usefull against ap champs and to avoid the first cc that can hit you when you engage a fight. We decide to go banshees over spirit visage since poppy wont make valuable use of the increased regen.
    Vision is the key to victory.

Situational Items

    Righteous glory will help youwhen your team is lacking engage potential. Only build when ahead. Dead Man's Plate is usefull if you face a heave ad team which gives you a nice mix out of amor, hp and engage potential. Randuins will be used against heavy ad, crit and attackspeed champs. It will give you a nice amount of amor, hp plus the slow of the active. Thornmail is used against heavy ad teams or just to make the live of the enemy adc miserable. Guardian angle is only used if you have a lot of health in your build already. Its of good use if there are explosive teamfights but not so much in longer fights.
    We use merccury's for heavy ap combs. And Ninja's for heavy ad combs. (should at least have 3-4 ad or ap damage dealers in the enemy team to buy these boots)

We start every game with corrupting potion for lane sustain and trading. At the same time you can recall and teleport back to lane if something goes wrong without having to spend more money for extra potions. 


If you happen to face an ap champ you buy spectre's cowl with our first recall if possible. After that you buy bami's cinder into sheen.
The first item you complete will be banshees followed by iceborn gauntlet and sunfire cape.
You buy the spectre's cowl for it's deffensive stats whil you buy bami's cinder for the passive damage and the hp.
sheen will be bought for damage, mana and cdr.

If you happen to face an ad champ you buy bami's cinder first. Again on your first recall if possible. After that you go straight to iceborn gauntlet. When thats finished you complete sunfire cape and go over to buy banshees.
You buy bami's cinder for the hp and the passive damage. you don't complete sunfire just yet since iceborn will be more efficient in terms of kill potential, cdr and potential mana issues. You complete sunfire cape after that and go on to banshees. Sunfire will be needed for the extra hp and amor it brings, but also for the increased burn on minions which help you push out a lane. This will help you to go for potential tp plays, since you minimize the loss of cs and damage on your tower.

About me Back to Top

Hello everyone I'm LegendOfNicky. I'm currently a Master tier toplaner who play for Enigma Esports. Poppy was my go to champion for a long time and i reached top 100 challenger on EUW using her. 

My Poppy stats Back to Top

About Poppy Back to Top

I think Poppy is a viable pick right now. She has amazing potential to peel for her carries in teamfights and she's very safe. Other than peeling poppy is really good at disengaging. That counts for teamfights and ganks. In lane she has good trading and survivability.
Yet she has some flaws. She destroys almost every meele matchup but has a lot of trouble against most ranged champions.
But she's a really solid pick in general.

Combos Back to Top

With poppy u start off combos with your e ability. If possible you want to smash ur enemys into a wall to stun them. you follow up with q+autoattack for damage. Lvl 6+ you use your ult right after for more cc and damage followed by autoattacks and other e+q combos.

Laning Back to Top

There are several things you should do with poppy while laning.

If your own minions get low and the enemy laner wants to last hit them you throw your q on the ground slightly in front of the minions in the path u anticipate your enemy to walk over. With this move the enemy laner has to take the dmg of both q parts or sacrifice his cs. 
If you go for trades make sure that your passive is up. Throw the ranged auto at your enemy and pick up the shield after to win the following trade.
Try to freeze the minion wave in front of your tower so you have an easier time stunning people into walls.
Use your w to block dashes when trading.

Midgame Back to Top

In midgame you roam around the map to take farm in sidelanes while looking for openings to gank. At this stage of the game Poppy is at her strongest point. If you see an opening to make a tp play take it. Try not to gank from lanes but instead look for opportunitys to flank the enemy.

Lategame Back to Top

Always stick with the team. Never split up. Peel for the carrys. Only engage if you see the opportunity to catch someone out. If you dont get the chance to do that stay with the carrys to peel.

Teleport Back to Top

Bind your f keys to the other lanes and the jungler. When possible switch between them to look for opportunitys to make a tp play. Try to get off recalls when your lane is pushed out so you don't have to use tp to get back to lane but instead to help out your team. If possible tp behind the enemy team to flank them.

Ask your lanes to place deep wards you can tp to.

Warding Back to Top

Try to get information on the starting camp of the enemy jungler. With that knowledge you can anticipate when he can be in your lane for the first time. Ward accordingly. If possible buy pink wards and place them either in tri brush/ river or deep in the enemy jungle. If you pushed out your lane and you have knowledge of the position of the enemy team roam into the enemy jungle on your side of the map to place wards. These will help you to avoid dying to ganks. Later in the game when you group up with your team try to ward your flanks or important objectives that will be in your focus. If you have knowledge of a neutral monster spawning you want to fight ward beforehand. If you push towers ward your flanks while pushing in further. Its importnat to know, that one pink ward is not enough even if it doesnt get destroyed. They are worth their money so try to replace them in areas where you need to clear the enemys vision or you need vision urself. 

Diving Back to Top

When diving try to knock the enemy you want to cc into the tower or into the wall right next to the tower. Follow up with q+auto into ult. If your ult is not needed you can use it to take care of enemys which try to help your target. Her diving potential is one of the strongest in the game so try to abuse it. If you want to use your ult on the enemy under the tower do it to finish them of. If you ult them just for the damage but don't finish them off you give them extra time due to the invulnerability of your ult which will result in you taking more towershots than needed.

The end Back to Top

When you play poppy you will need to practice just like any other champ. You wont master her in 1 or 2 games. So stay focused and don't lose sight on your goal. Just this guide alone wont make you a master or challenger tier toplaner but it will lead you into the right direction. Stay positive and you will see improvement over time. 

/ignore all will also help.

I really hope reading this guide helped you in some way.

Good luck in dynamic que.
