Summoner Spells Back to Top

Ignite is not worth, as you should be far from your enemy to reach for the ignite.
Go heal when you think you are going to need the extra movement speed against high mobility champs.

Thunderlord's goes really well with your E-W-Q combo.

Max Q as it is your main source of power.

For support, you can go E at level 2, otherwise max as it is above.


ALWAYS save your undefined.png, it could save your ass in a gank. Use it only if you are 101% sure you are gonna land it, if not, save it.


 

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    Normal start
    Items for support

Core Items

    Full AP build. I started to buy Luden's first just for its movement speed. If you are ahead go with a Rylai's, its passive helps you land your combo.

Situational Items

    Go Zhonya's as a first item when going against a Zed. I usually build Zhonya's when the enemy team is fed or against difficult champs. Athene's if your team already has high ap and you need mana

I always try to back to base when I can afford an1058.png. If you backed with low gold, just buy potions until you reach the 1250 gold you need for 1058.png. IF you've been killed more than twice by the enemy mid before buying your 1058.png, consider going Zhonya's or a more passive build. Go 3020.png after your 1058.png and you should have a decent poke with mobility. Finish 3285.png after boots. With 3285.png done, you have to decide if going with 3157.png or 3116.png. Depends on how you doing against your enemy mid lane.

VS

Ahri

Medium

Medium to hard. She can avoid your xeratharcanebarragewrapper.png with her ahritumble.png, and she has good poke as you. She can heal herself too so be careful. You have the advantage of the distance.
Skill matchup

VS

Akali

Medium

Medium to hard. You have more poke and a strong CC. An early kill will give you an excellent boost. After level 6 she can kill you easily with her ultimate, so be careful and take your distance. Always a pink ward.

VS

Anivia

Medium

Don't have much experience playing against Anivia, but this is a skill match too. You can play agressive or passive, but be careful of her passive, as you can end in a bad position.

VS

Annie

Easy

Easy to hard, depends on the skill of the player. Overall you are better, but be very careful and watch if her stun is on, as her combo can kill you.

VS

Aurelion Sol

Medium

His aurelionsolW.png is pretty annoying when you want to farm, beware when he has it activated. Keep moving around so he can't stun you with aurelionsolQ.png. You have more poke and more range than him.

VS

Azir

Medium

You bully him easily, poke and laugh (good lore) although his soldiers annoy you a lot when farming. At level 6 watch for ganks as his $ can leave you in bad position

VS

Brand

Medium

He is like a Xerath but with less reach. Stay behind minions and you he won't stun you. brandfissure.png is annoying, never stay still, keep moving as you poke him.

VS

Cassiopeia

Easy

Just poke as always, you outrange her. If she can't land the poison she won't do anything. Poke and poke (and poke and poke until she is dead)

VS

Cho'Gath

Easy

His rupture.png can fuck you ap easily, so be ready with your xerathmagechains.png in case he land his Q. He tanks really quickly so consider taking some magic penetration

VS

Diana

Medium

First levels you will poke her down. At level 6 she can reach you with no difficulty so keep your distance. Rush 3157.png can be a good option

VS

Ekko

Medium

High mobility champ, play safe, abuse your $?i10c.mark.image.type and always check his $?i10c.mark.image.type

VS

Fizz

Hard

Hate this guy, high mobility and can avoid your spells with no problem. Play safe near your tower. 3157.png goes well against fizzmarinerdoom.png

VS

Galio

Medium

Anti AP champ. Don't be fooled when playing against a Galio. Be smart and never go too close to him (galioidolofdurand.png)

VS

Katarina

Easy

Easy to normal champ. If she is fed go afk cause she fucks you up.
 Shouldn't be difficult to land your skills, abuse your poke. Beware if she is getting close to you. Your xerathmagechains.png cancels her deathlotus.png so try to save your stun in team fights and she wouldn't be much of a trouble

VS

Kennen

Medium

Haven't played much against him, beware of his stun. Retreat once he uses $ and you should be fine

VS

LeBlanc

Hard

LeFuckyou. Play super passive, one combo and you are done. If you manage to land yourxerathmagechains.png, go with your combo and then retreat

VS

Lux

Medium

Skill matchup, never stop moving, if she lands a luxlightbinding.png you will take some good poke. If she misses her luxlightbinding.png take the upper hand and poke her

VS

Malzahar

Medium

Annoying champ, you outpoke him, but never tryhard. His alzaharnethergrasp.png under a torret or near bush (gank)can kill you 

VS

Orianna

Medium

Skill matchup, just keep moving around

VS

Swain

Medium

Poke poke and poke, watch your map, if he lands a swainshadowgrasp.png and the jungler ganks him you are fucked

VS

Syndra

Medium

Annoying champ, watch for hissyndraQ.png as she can syndraE.png and stun you for 1.5 seconds. A 3157.png will help for hersyndraR.png

VS

Talon

Medium
101.png is weak against melee champions and Talon is no exception. He has no escape so ask help to your jungler. Try to take one or two kills before lvl6. Once he reaches lvl6, 2043.png is a must

VS

Twisted Fate

Easy

Easy match, just poke him and abuse your combo. Both of you have no escape, so you are easy prays for junglers. Beware his golden card.

VS

Veigar

Medium

His only annoying ability is his veigareventhorizon.png, if he doesn't manage to stun you, he won't do much. 3157.png>veigarprimordialburst.png

VS

Vel'Koz

Medium

Skill matchup, avoid his velkozE.png. Always move from one place to another to avoid his skillshots. Your xerathmagechains.png cancels his velkozR.png, so in teamfights save your stun for him

VS

Yasuo

Hard

His yasuoE.png is utterly disgusting, almost impossible to land your skills. yasuoW.png blocks your xerathmagechains.png. If he hits his whirlwind post lvl6 you are fucked up. Just play safe, SAVE YOUR xerathmagechains.png, and beg for help to your jungler

VS

Zed

Medium

Go 3157.png first to counter his ultimate. Keep in mind when he used his zedW.png, if it is on cd try to land a combo.

VS

Ziggs

Medium

Move around to avoid hisziggsq.png21.png will help againstziggsr.png
