Summoner Spells Back to Top

You want the 12.png for several reasons. First of all and most importantly this is your safety net. When you screw up get 1v1'd by that rascal called 80.png, keep your cool, 12.png back and farm. 400 gold is not that much right? It would be way more if you had an 14.png or something because of all the farm you would loose. Remember all the crazy die doing camp then TP back so I have like gold lead and stuff?? You really should not be doing that nowadays BUUT if you really have to then w/o 12.png you might as well kill yourself permanently, like with a rope. IRL.
But wait there's more! You know how some champions like 80.png have semi global abilities that let them go places? With 12.png you can do just that except without your whole kit resolving around being a massive prick for every single lane in the game.
4.png let's you escape, 100% cannibalism.png their carries and much much more.

-Learn how to use crypticgaze.png. Practice it. Become a master of it. I can tell you that smartcast (surprisingly) works clunkier than regular cast, especially on lower-end keyboards.

-deathscaressfull.png costs fair amount of mana, so don't go too crazy on doing random poke dmg with it.
-deathscaressfull.png does magic damage, scaling with your adversaries hp. It's great if you can absorb as much dmg with it and then instantly explode it when it is on 10/20hp. You can call this "Risky playz"
-Remember that direct hit with enrage.png set up you for more damage from deathscaressfull.png and crypticgaze.png.
-enrage.png has insane range if it hits a minion.
-enrage.png can mess up your team-mates abilities such as powerball.png orjavelintoss.png orrocketgrab.png orrengarE.png orxerathmagechains.png or...
-enrage.png can also set up for some mobility based abilities such as shadowstep.png or yasuoE.png
-timebomb.png+enrage.png for some insane style points
-Half charged  crypticgaze.png+enrage.png costs nearly the same amount of mana as deathscaressfull.png and deals way more dmg to minions.
-Use cannibalism.png to swagger your way out of any problematic situations, either by killing maggots that stand on your way, or by backing to the base for a sip from the fountain.
-cannibalism.png speed starts slow and ramps to a cap over first 1.5 second. His initial speed is however effected by his actual movement speed. So things like 3009.png, Homeguard or timewarp.png affect the starting speed.
-Sometimes it is better to 4.png and cannibalism.png for undodgeable cc than more dmg and longer cc from fully felged home-run cannibalism.png
-Sadly you cannot cannibalism.png through several people. This feature never made it live :(
-sionpassive.png will make you sad.

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

Core Items

Situational Items

Start with2033.png. Go to lane, drink when mana get's low or maggot known as your lane opponent scratched you a bit. Once2033.png is active, spam enrage.png like there's no tomorrow. It can net you a hefty 50 hp lead over you opponent. Sounds like small advantage? Well, slow and steady wins the race until you're level six. That's when cannibalism.png wins.
On your first back you should start building towards 3068.png prioritizing 3751.png. You generally won't need boots until you finish 3068.png. After finish sunfire it's time for some movement. While 14.png is thematically not the shwiftiest of champions, 3009.png are extremely cost effective and so generally are the best evolution of 1001.png.
Now you might ask, why should I build 3083.png as a second item? Oh, dear viewer, you forgot about most fundamental thing. Sion deathscaressfull.png gives you passive heath. That means that 14.png is one of maybe 2 or 3 champions that can actually get away with building 3083.png as a second item and still get it's special passive unlocked immiedietly. That makes him insanely dangerous in sieges and baron dances, as he can soak up all the poke for his carries, and then just wait a second or two to regain all of that missing hp in the matter of seconds. 3083.png also makes you into diving monster that can take turret shots for days.
After that you should probably get some MR, and is there a better way to achieve that than with 3102.png? Well yes, it's called 3105.png but we are selfish and we won't bother with pesky aura items. If you still find yourself bursted by AP carries, something weird went down in the draft, and things like63.png are on the loose. In that instance, I say good luck sir but 3053.png or 3065.png are still an option. Under any other circumstances you want 3075.png. You have plenty of HP, so that will make you a behemoth to really fear. You see especially in lower divisions ADC will shy away from killing the tank, and instead they will try to "FOCUS THE ADC" which as we all know and are aware of is a pretty bad idea. With 3075.png it becomes even harder to force them to attack 14.png since you know, they kill themselves trying to.
Generally 3512.png is not the worst idea on him, but remember if you are playing vs hight ATS, AD champion it's active might be pretty useless. Generally 3512.png  is great vs 54.png111.png and such. If you feel particularly festive you might even buy 3060.png for some extra lulz.
Other notes:
-sionpassive.png will make you very sad so don't even think about itemizing around it(no 3748.png please). While sometimes buying that3022.png or3071.png might be not the worst idea, generally do not do it. 
-Pushing is key to victory in most cases. In other cases it's not...
-Forget about tip above, it is stupid.
-If you wan to play for a bit more fun and less serious, ladder gaming, try to some AD, it get's to the point where you can one shot pesky ADCs with your crypticgaze.png and cannibalism.png. It's also incredibly unreliable and you stop being a tank and start to look like that old poor bastard AD Sion sr.(RIP in peace zombiefied Arnie) where you would die before you could do anything worth of notice. BT and some other AD items actually fire off 14.pngs special quotes so there's also that.

VS

Cho'Gath

Hard

He's hard for two reasons,14.png doesn't normally build MR  on his first items and 31.png can stopcrypticgaze.pngwith bothrupture.pngandferalscream.png. The two saving factors are his deathscaressfull.png dmg against high HP characters, and the fact that 31.png can't really burst 14.png with his feast.png easly since 14.png itemizes a lot of HP.

VS

Darius

Medium

If you're into lore, this lane should rustle your jimmies a bit.(There are special quuuuuooootes) 14.pngvs122.png lane is basically a dance lane of OG zombie psychopath vs white Michael Jordan player wannabe. Whenever you see that a juicy minion is about to die, you should make a "You really shouldn't come close to this farm zone" with your crypticgaze.png. Darius' dariusaxegrabcone.png and dariuscleave.png have slightly lower range that crypticgaze.png so try to destroy him with some well timed crypticgaze.png activations. Generally this is not a lane you should dominate, but it is certainly not a one you should loose. This is a 50/50 lane so good luck and wait for your jungler to do all the work for you.

VS

Dr. Mundo

Medium

Since you're itemizing HP and armor he can be a total pain in the arse to live through. The best way to deal with him is to constantly push him and ward so you don't get destroyed by that wild 77.png

VS

Fiora

Easy
crypticgaze.png stops fioraq.pngcrypticgaze.pngis hard to counter withfiorariposte.png, a good 14.png can make 114.png cry. Lvl 1-3 are basically Fiora trying to 1v1 you into the ground. Do not overextend as her fioraq.png to procfiorapassive.png is on pretty low cd and can greatly out damage your crypticgaze.png. Whittle her down with your 2033.png, play mind tricks on her when she tries to fiorariposte.png your crypticgaze.png by sometimes activating it before the stun hits or waiting for a FULL DRURATION for that sweet sweet 1.8 Ad ratio crypticgaze.png. Whenever she tried to fioraq.png out of your crypticgaze.png stop her and destroy her life even further on. Be aware that 114.png is still pretty imbalanced champion that can 1v9 a lategame teamfight by simply throwing her fioradance.png on the right person and then just running everyone else with percentage from hp true damage, insane mobility, stuns, slows, hp from 3748.png and much more. Try to win game as fast as possible before she reaches her full potential.

VS

Gangplank

Hard

Hoesntly I don't know how to play vs him. He always seems to get fed no matter the lane outcome. He can removescurvy.png your stun part of your crypticgaze.png, his raisemorale.png have 40%(40 fugin percent) base armor pen and you can't even try to simply stack armor since his cannonbarrage.png obviously deals magic dmg. I hate this champion, I hate him more than 105.png and that's a thing that's not easy to achieve.

VS

Garen

Easy
86.png is build around two mechanics. And I'm not really talking about the Villain thingy. 86.png is his garenbladestorm.png spin to win in teamfights and his garenpassive.png that let's him be healthy 24/7 in lane. The thing is that every single 14.png skill does damage. Garen should not be able to event walk close to the farm. And if he does there's always 2033.png to stop garenpassive.png even further. This should be easy win.

VS

Gnar

Easy

Generally he is pretty easy match-up. 150.pngs similarly to most hit 3 champs such as  67.png or 161.png will try to do their best to get the 3rd stack of gnarW.png go off. And they will either try to  walk into your crypticgaze.png zone or try to be tricky and jump over you with gnarE.png. Good luck with that one. Really. Godspeed. 150.png's gnarE.png is so incredibly slow that you can reactivate crypticgaze.png at least 20 times before it is truly needed. Laning is easy and he was gutted after season 5 to the point that he can't really single handedly carry a game.

VS

Graves

Easy

The main problem with 104.png is the fact that he does more damage that it seems he will do. It's surprising when his gravesclustershot.png bounces from the wall bit if you stay away from his gravesclustershot.png you shouldn't really have big problems with 104.png. He does well vs fragile laners which 14.png is certainly not. Similarly to 114.png's fioraq.png104.png's gravesmove.png can be easily stopped with crypticgaze.png reactivation.

VS

Irelia

Easy

Stopping ireliagatotsu.png is funny. A thing with Irelia is that she can become lategame monster. Don't let her.

VS

Jax

Medium

Lvl1 you have an upper hand,but then surprisingly next let's say 6 levels will be the hard part. He will try to go Harrrrd on you but wait! after some time he will do negative damage to you and he won't have enough HP because he'll be itemizing damage. That's exactly the moment when you destroy him.

VS

Kayle

Easy

She is... problematic. She can generally outrange you but then when her kayleE.png is not up you can walk up to her and go for the whole crypticgaze.pngdeathscaressfull.pngenrage.png rotation for like bilion damage. I would consider it to be a skill match-up but lately I have not played vs a lot of 10.pngs. Late game cannibalism.png into crypticgaze.png can easily prevent kayleR.png so that's the reason I'm giving it Easy difficulty.

VS

Kennen

Hard

He is like hardish medium kind of guy. Honestly a good 85.png can wreck your face in a way that you won't even understand. Basically you need to learn t keep away from him when he has his 5th attack kennenbringthelight.png, since he will try to AA you as soona s you get even remotly close to him witch then can lead into the wholekennenshurikenhurlmissile1.pngkennenbringthelight.pngkennenlightningrush.pngkennenshurikenstorm.png you're dead situation. Also you'll need to adjust your build maybe taking 3102.pnginstead of rushing warmogs. Anyhow he is not seen to much lately so I don't really know how playing against good kennen looks like.

VS

Lissandra

Medium

Problematic. Her waveclear is supreme, which takes main strength of 14.png away. Also her lissandraR.png hard counters your cannibalism.png. She shouldn't be able to kill you in lane but she will certainly do it if she get's any help from a jungler as her skills are insanely potent at setting up ganks. Take cautious steps.

VS

Malphite

Easy

VS

Maokai

Medium

Slugfest. The problem lies in maokaiunstablegrowth.png. Kinda not the best. You see it let's him dodge crypticgaze.png, get him close enough to maokaitrunkline.png to stop crypticgaze.png and do damage based on your hp. Infuriating. The thing is that he shouldn't really be able to ever kill you, and you shouldn't be able to kill him since he has his special little treat in maokaipassive.png. Prepare yourself for a great fun of fighting

and farming
and fighting
and farming

you get the idea

VS

Mordekaiser

Easy

Sad fool, who picks him on top nowadays... Sad fool who plays him at all :[

VS

Nasus

Easy

PUUUUUSH YOOOOOOUR LAAAAAAAAAAAANEEEEE
farming siphoningstrikenew.png under tower is a bit of a hardship for him, and it let's you roam to mid and enemy's jungle. Try to destroy his tower as soon as possible so you can start grouping mid. He should be nearly useless, since his siphoningstrikenew.png will do nearly 0 dmg and he himself will be forced into grouping with his team... by his team.

VS

Nautilus

Medium

You are a special kinds of tank. A tank that can easily deal with 3512.png and 3060.png thanks to your crypticgaze.png and general AA power. That means that a clever 111.png won't build it. If he does, Ezzier win for you. 111.png's dmg early on is a real bummer. his nautiluspiercinggaze.png iis so incredibly similar to your deathscaressfull.png that you'll find yourself dancing around minions with shields of fun. Try to either burst his nautiluspiercinggaze.png as soon as possible or wait it out. If he hits you with your nautiluspiercinggaze.png on, you have already lost. Generally you should be able to dodge nautilussplashzone.png since it is so slow.

VS

Olaf

Easy

Have not played a lot vs him. I suspect him to be kinda hard after 6 and in levels 1-2 as he will probably try to go nutz and lvl1 kill you. After hitting six expect olafragnarok.png/berserk mode. You should be able to get him low enough for you jungler to dive him. BUT BEWARE!!!!! with the new masteries andd olaffrenziedstrikes.png he can suddenly mess you up if you do not burst him fast enough. If not fed he will fall off in time.

VS

Pantheon

Easy

You can stop his pantheon_leapbash.png with crypticgaze.png. Generally you are to tanky for him to just destroy you. If he picks up 14.png punish him for it by using 12.png as soon as you ran out of 2033.png and he runs out of mana. Then it's just easy peasy push so he cannot roam with his pantheon_grandskyfall_jump.png. Congratulations! you just messed up his early game, literally the only thing he has to offer.

VS

Rengar

Easy

Ok, if you are bronze, and there's nothing bad about that, this is instantly a hard match-up for you. You see 107.png lane has an expiration date, after which he becomes useless. Play def, sit under your turret, do not come close to the bushes, slowly whittle him down and win. As soon as he get's any kills you might as well go bot and forget about toplane because it's only getting worse after that.

VS

Riven

Hard

Honestly nobody plays her nowadays, but is still hate this champ. I know this is supposed to be a guide on how to play vs her but honestly, I don't know. Play def watch her get fed  anyway, whatever, thank goodness all riven mains stopped playing lately so you don't have to deal with her any more.

VS

Shen

Medium
98.png does surprising amounts of damage thanks to his shenvorpalstar.png %HP on hit magic damage. You can obviously stop his shenshadowdash.pngwith crypticgaze.png and since 14.png who relies on AAs, Shen's shenfeint.pngis nearly useless(one more reason to forget about 3748.png dreams). Still a medium diff lane because he can all in for some decent damage and if you miss that timing on crypticgaze.png  denyingshenshadowdash.png you might be in for a lot of trouble.

VS

Singed

Easy

Easyish lane. You see for 27.png to actually become problematic he needs either to be fed early on or to be chased. Since 14.png is one of the most kitable champions in the game, you should never, and I mean NEVER chase him. Push as much as possible, create safety zones with your crypticgaze.png, poke him early on since his sustain is really bad early, and do not dive him early on. His megaadhesive.png and fling.png make 2v1 dive into Tower killing two players by itself. just push him poke him destroy him, this is my advice.

VS

Sion

Medium

Why are you playing blind pick anyway??

VS

Tahm Kench

Easy

Guess what, PUSH. If his tahmkenchW.png has to be used to push lane he will not have it for the gank that's certainly going to come if you push to far into his lane. tahmkenchW.png also consumes quite a lot of mana so faster or sooner you will force him to go back to base. Generally he is incredibly kitable so if you dodge his tahmkenchQ.png you can run away from most possible problems. Remember if 223.png tahmkenchR.png behind you and you are under your opponent's tower either run/cannibalism.png to the enemy's fountain and get killed by towers and minions on the way or try running towards midlane. Also ping franticly so everybody admires your great escape.

VS

Teemo

Easy
crypticgaze.png him like 3 times and he's dead. Also push, he has no cc to support a gank so you can easly escape that and no waveclear to speak off so he'll have to sit under tower and will be unable to place his twisted shrooms anywhere.

VS

Tryndamere

Easy

Don't get all-ind early on(Surprisingly do not push as much as you normally would), then just outscale him by buying armor and hp. He won't be able to split push if you are constantly there to stop him with your crypticgaze.png and 3068.png

VS

Vladimir

Medium
crypticgaze.png out ranges both his vladimirtidesofblood.png and vladimirtransfusion.png. a good Vlad will still mess you upo tho if you try to go too aggressive on him. Remember to keep your cool, don't cannibalism.png so you don't get vladimirsanguinepool.png and most importantly remember that he will die... eventually.

VS

Yorick

Easy

What is a yoric?
Edit: Actually played against one. Yoric actually feeds you free w stacks, so there's that.

Bonus section: le stratz Back to Top

sionpassive.pngStation:Buffs

Start on your opponent's top buff(if you are playing blue, then start on red buff, if you are playing red then start on blue buff), make sure you were not seen, proceed into stealing their blue/red buff.(obviously die doing it tp back to lane with your newfound advantage. If blue buff was stolen proceed into furious crypticgaze.pngdeathscaressfull.pngenrage.png spam, if red buff was stolen proceed into AA you stunned lane opponent. 60% of the time it works every time. Also makes their jungler hate you, also you'll have no 12.png in case you get outplayed by your opponent so your safety net is gone. Oh and if you give away a red buff to 114.png then Good Luck m8.

cannibalism.pngStation:Botlane

Did you just hit level 6? Go back to the fountain, check your cannibalism.png range and go on a magical journey to meet up with your Vayne Janna for some killer surprise botlane party. They won't see that one coming.

sonapassive.pngStation: Awesome Town

Hop on on the last train to the Awesome Townbind your laugh to right click and proceed into the most hilarious laning phase of your life. Also BM. Oh look it's that time again!
