Summoner Spells Back to Top

Taliyah Beifong.png

4.png Always take this, it offers a great escape + a way to catch your enemy.
14.png Standard damage spell for mid laners , i usually go for  TP since i consider Taliyah more of a supportive mage than a full on burst mage.
12.png I love picking this spell mid lane / top lane since it allows me to get quick to other lanes if they have problems or TP to lane if i get killed so i wont loose a lot of XP.
3.png Great spell against burst champs like 238.png / 107.png.
11.png Standard secondary spell if you're going jungle .. duh.
1.png Can work in some match-ups , i dont really pick this spell , i would rather get TP over this but if you're against a heavy CC laner and you think that he's gonna be able to burst you down you can go for this.
21.png Can work against something like 99.png so you can deny some of her damage.
7.png Same as above
6.png Gonna go fast ?

Max R > Q > E > W 

passive.png

Rock Surfing allows you to get back in lane faster , clear your jungle faster , escape and roam easier.The only condition is that you have to be near Terrain or Structures.

q.png

This ability is very fun to use but it can be hard to hit sometimes since it's like a Taric stun , while you cast it you can move and if you're against something with mobility it will be a pain in the a*s.

w.png

Seismic Shove will take some practice till you learn how to use it properly.It can be used in combination with your E "Unraveled Eearth" and as a defense ability , you can throw  your enemy away or even set up some kills with it.Its a really complicated ability for a beginner but it's very rewarding in my opinion.

e.png

Unraveled Earth is a good ability against Dash champions and as a waveclear tool.You can use this with your W Seismic Shove , throwing your enemies into the boulders forcing them to get slowed and maybe take some damage.

R.png

Taliyahs ult is Weaver's Wall , a great roaming ability that also creates a impassable terrain allowing you to block a lane.

A good lane combo is : E > W Your enemy into your E > Q The slowed enemy.


Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    Standard Start.
    I take this against easy matchups where i know i can stomp the lane.
    Jungle Start
    Support Start
    Dont forget to upgrade your tricket at level 9. Go for Oracle Alteration (The red thing) if you're support / jungle and Farsight alteration if you're mid /top.

Core Items

    Tanky Build.
    The standard Taliyah build. You can switch zhonyas for abyssal if there is a lot of ap in the enemy team.
    Jungle Build , you can switch Protobelt for Void Staff and Zhonyas for Abyssal.
    Support Build. You can switch Locket for Banner if you dont need the active shield.
    Another great build for Taliyah , 45% CDR tanky and a lot of damage.

Situational Items

    Take this if you're going support and you dont need the Locket of The Iron Solari active.
    Against Heavy AP Teams.
    If you get focused a lot.
    Against HP Stackers.
    Take this if you need the Slow Active. Replace Rod of Ages.
    After playing some Taliyah on the live servers i decided that you dont really need this , you can go for morello and you will have more than enough mana to spam your skills.
    Take this if you need bonus Magic Penetration. I usually go for Lucidity Boots since i like the CDR. It's just a preference , you can switch for any boots you want.
    You can take this if you're going jungle or if you're gonna roam a lot.
    No reason to go for this item , you're not Diana or Fizz.
    You can take this even if you're going mid lane , the slow active is really nice.

VS

Ahri

Medium

Early game you should focus on csing and dodging her ahriorbofdeception.png and her ahriseduce.png


At level 6 if you see her using ahritumble.png put your E down so you can stop her engage.

Dont use your W untill she finishes her dashes.

VS

Akali

Medium

Early game this match-up is easy , use your Q or Auto-Attack her when she goes for cs.

At level 6 this match-up gets a little bit harder , when she comes for you put your E down so you can stop her dash.

Also keep in mind that you should always have a 2043.png when you want to fight her so you can see her when she uses akalismokebomb.png.

VS

Anivia

Easy

Anivia is immobile so you can just W her towards you or away from you. Try to avoid geting hit by her stun since she will probably come closer to hit her E and you will loose a lot of health.

VS

Aurelion Sol

Easy

You can kite him if he comes close to you but watch out for his W.
If he comes with his Q towards you just push him away with your W and then Q.

VS

Azir

Easy

Try to watch for when he moves his soldiers so you can attack him since he wont be able to move them for some time.Also when you're attacking him place your E under him so he cant dash away.

VS

Brand

Easy

Brand is immobile but he has a lot of damage so try to avoid geting hit by his W / Q.
Try to kite him around and watch out for his ult since that thing deals a lot of damage  , even more when you have Blaze on you.

Knock him away from you if he has his ult and comes for an engage.
Knock him toward you if his ult is on Cooldown and you think you can kill him.

VS

Darius

Easy

Kite him , dont get close to him because if he E's you , you're probably danzo.

If your hp is lower than his HP and he tries to come close to you push him away from you , you dont want to get E - Ulted from your existence.

VS

Diana

Medium

Pre level 6 it's gonna be easy since you can just harass her over and over again.

Once she hits level 6 and she Q's you she will probably ult so if she Q's use your E so you can block her. 

  1. If she misses her Q and Ults push her away with your W and after that kite her. 
  2. If she hits her Q and ults wait for her second ult then W her away and run.

VS

Ekko

Easy

Most Ekko players will E after they W so when you see him using his W , put your E down and run away.
If he tries to catch you just kite him and you will be fine.

But remember when he uses his W he will probably use E as well so just place your E down.

VS

Ezreal

Easy

An easy match-up all you need to do is wait for him to use his E and then use your W to make him come back to you.

VS

Fiora

Hard

I hate this champion.

She can W when you W her and she will deny your ability , chase you like there's no tomorrow. Heal from everything, true damage your a** , slow you , crit you.

Ask for ganks , i personally cant deal with this matchup.

VS

Fizz

Hard

The Ballerina FIsh.

This guy is gonna farm till level 6 then Ult E Q you out of existence.Try to cs and roam also ask for ganks.

VS

Galio

Medium

This guy is an anti-mage champion , he's gonna build Magic Resist and still get a lot of damage.

Bait his Shield (W) and then kite him around. Also at level 6 watch out for his ult since he can set up ganks really well with that ult.

VS

Gangplank

Medium

Watch out for this barrels since they deal *overusedbutstillgoodmeme*.

Kite him around and as i said try to dont get hit by his barrels.

VS

Gnar

Easy

Keep your E down when you think he's gonna jump on you since his E counts as a Dash.

When he's in Mega Gnar try to kite him around and avoid geting stunned.
Dont run in straight line since he will hit his Q and Stun very easy.

VS

Graves

Medium

When you think he's gonna dash put your E down and then Q. Try to dont get hit by his Q since that thing has way too much damage even after like what 3 nerfs.

If he gets too close push him away.

VS

Illaoi

Easy

Immobile champion. 

Just avoid her skillshots , if she gets too close push her away and then Q her.

Also dont underestimate her ult , she can melt you down if you allow her to use her W.

VS

Irelia

Medium

Use your E when she tries to Q since her ireliagatotsu.png counts as a dash.

She's a medium match-up because if she gets close to you .. you're kinda dead  its not too much you can do about it except trying to push her away with your W.

VS

Jax

Medium

Try to block his Q with your E and kite him around. 
Watch out for his stun , and dont get too close.

VS

Karthus

Easy

Immobile mage , when he tries to run from you just push him back to you.Just avoid geting too much damage from his Q and you will win your lane.

VS

Katarina

Easy

It will be hard to hit your skills on her since her E is a blink.
At level 6 when she ults just use your W and push her away from you.

VS

LeBlanc

Medium

She's not the hardest counter as rito said but yeah , she's kinda difficult to deal with. My tips against this match-up are :

1. Dont be greedy , dont underestimate LeBlanc's damage and go all in.

2. After she Q's she will most likely use her W too so you should put your E down exactly when she Q's so you can block her Dash.
3. Build 3001.png

VS

Lee Sin

Easy

You can block the second part of his Q with your E . Just focus on farming , if he gets too close just push him away and kite him.

VS

Master Yi

Medium

He can be kinda hard to deal with since he can dodge your spells with his Q.
If he gets too close just push him away and then kite him.

VS

Nasus

Easy

Easiest matchup for you. Just harass him , if he gets too close just throw your E down and then push him with your W in your E. He wont be able to get to you without burning flash.

VS

Rengar

Hard

Rengar just like Zed is a big counter to all mages , he can delete you in 1 second.

Play as safe as possible and buy 3157.png. If you face him in lane take 3.png.

VS

Shen

Easy

Another easy match-up , if he gets close to you push him away. Kite him around and you will win your lane.

VS

Zed

Hard

This guy is basically the anti-mage , bullsh*t damage mid laner. 
Take 3.png and rush 3157.png.
Play as safe as possible , roam and ask for ganks.

I will update them once Taliyah comes live since i played on PBE only against Zed / Yasuo and another Taliyah so most of them are made from my knowledge of the champions and Taliyah.

Misc. Back to Top


I will update the matchups in around 2 weeks since it takes a lot to update them.

I will also update the guide everytime when needed.
