Summoner Spells Back to Top

Ignite Flash is standard, but if you're up against Lissandra/Malzahar/Annie or someone who will be stunning you a lot Clense can be better.

New Runes Back to Top

Masteries Back to Top

With the recent buffs to Thunderlords and Precision you wanna grab them up over the CDR and Fervor. The new assassin mastery helps in lane as well. Natural Talent can be switched out for Vampirism if you need the extra sustain but you need all the damage you can get early in most matchups.


Fervor stacking on champions only makes it basically worthless in most mid matchups.

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    Basic Starting items, builds into everything you need.

Core Items

    Youmouu's is too good right now to not buy first. I'm moving away from Botrk though it's still good i prefer Hydra or Cleaver. Hydra for raw damage and Cleaver if you need the extra health to survive your combo.
    Less prefered over Hydra but still strong if you need the sustain or slow. Good beginner item.
    Pick one. Both are expensive so don't get them both unless you're very far ahead. Even then there are better items

Situational Items

    Against any bursty Ap.
    If you're fed as heck.
    Pick one depending on the enemy team. Tanks get Dominik's. Healing get Mortal Reminder.

VS

Ahri

Medium

Skill match up, if you can avoid the Charm you can easily all in and win. Usually she just ult's away but if you harass properly you can kill her before the second dash.

VS

Annie

Medium

Very annoying match, it's hard to actually win but play around the stun and harass from outside her range. Probably need to roam for kills instead of on her. Botrk would actually be good in the matchup for the heal and the % health since most annies rush ROA.

VS

Azir

Medium

Another Skill matchup, he can ulti you under tower so try to keep the wave on your side of the lane. If he ult's you away don't shadow back if he hasn't used his (azirE.png) Shifting sands or you might get juked. If he used it just ult back and finish the kill.

VS

Brand

Medium

More skill match ups see a theme? If he misses stun go for the harass or all in pretty basic.

VS

Diana

Hard

This is one of the worst case scenario's. She will build tanky and skill out damage you easily. You can't really win just don't get solo killed and roam to get ahead.

VS

Ekko

Medium

Relatively easy matchup but because of the outplay potential on both sides it's still Skill based. If you have better mechanics you should win most times.

VS

Fizz

Hard

This is another worst case scenario. You have to bait out the E and then fight. He will be stronger than you for most of the game but if you can get 1 or 2 items you can take advantage of his weaker mid game.

VS

Gangplank

Easy

Play around barrels and it's pretty easy to just all in and kill him.

VS

Heimerdinger

Hard

You have no real way to kill his turrets so you kinda just get shoved in. Ask for jungler help to 2v1 him and it should make it easier.

VS

Jayce

Medium

Early game you will not be able to do much. Tough it out and by the time you have an item he should only have tear and maybe some components. Use that time to kill him off.

VS

Karthus

Easy

If the jungler doesn't interfere this is free kills. He has no way to defend against you unless he has exhaust. Try to bait out exhaust before going all in.

VS

Kassadin

Easy

You should be fine. You have an opertunity to kill him if you can poke him out and hit 4 first. Post-6 you're going to get out roamed so try to push his turret and then follow the roams.

VS

Katarina

Easy

Survive the early poke and you win post 6 with an item. Be careful of 3157.pngrush and don't get baited.

VS

Kayle

Hard

This is nearly impossible to win. If you survive early you can usually outroam her but you need jungler help to actually win lane. If you bait out her ult without using yours then you can get the win.

VS

Kennen

Medium

Skill match up. If you play around the stun and kill him before the 3157.png rush you're golden.

VS

LeBlanc

Hard

You have to hit all your skillshots or you lose this matchup. Don't use W to harass unless she used her's and w'd back to it. If you use it to early she can just dodge and all in. If she brings exhaust never go for the all in without jungler you will lose.

VS

Lissandra

Hard

Same as kayle. Might want clense here if she ult's you. Play around her ult and call for jungler. Otherwise roam to get ahead.

VS

Lulu

Medium

Sort of like Lissandra/Kayle. Playing around the ulti and calling for jungle help you win. Otherwise roam to get ahead.

VS

Lux

Easy

Freelo. If she walks up to far or misses her luxlightbinding.png Then you get a free kill. Play aggressive but keep wards up and don't get hit by shackle.

VS

Morgana

Medium

Sort of like lux except all in's are harder because of the ultimate. If you dodge the binding you can attempt an all in but remember to ulti out of her ult. Like against annie Botrk can be good since she will rush ROA and Zhonya.

VS

Orianna

Hard

This one is borderline Medium. This is entirely skill based. If you can juke her shockwave and ward appropriately then you should be able to win. If she shockwaves just disengage and abuse the ultimate advantage.

VS

Ryze

Hard

Try to abuse his weak early game but be careful around 8/9 Try to fight inside your minions so his q is hard to hit.

VS

Syndra

Hard

You lose if you get hit by too many orbs and stun. You need to juke because your life does depend on it. If you manage to avoid the stun try to go for the all-in. But keep wards up and know where the jungler is.

VS

Talon

Hard

This is tough. If you can avoid his rake harass and reply with q and the qew combo you can win. But he will be stronger post 6. You need to get oracles at level 9 to be able to win 1v1 as long as you're close in items and gold.

VS

Twisted Fate

Medium

Actually kinda easy. Play around gold card and jungle. He will roam much better than you so pressure his turret and him so he can't roam as often. Remember to call MIA and when his ulti is up.

VS

Vel'Koz

Medium

You can get on top of him easily but a good vel'koz can turn on you easily. Post 6 if he survives your all in he will kill you with lazer so be careful and know your damage. Watch for jungle because his gank assist is really high.

VS

Viktor

Hard

Outpokes you, shoves you in and can roam while you're farming. All around annoying matchup, but your jungler can turn it for you and once you get ahead just bait out the viktorgravitonfield.png and get free kills.

VS

Vladimir

Hard

Well, if you can kill him before 3 great. If not just sit back and farm. Wait for jungle and hope you don't get dove. This is entirely based on jungler help you will most likely not win 1v1. If you have Botrk/Maw/Mortal Reminder you can probably win but it's really tough. You have to outplay very hard.

VS

Xerath

Easy

Dodge stun, get kills. Not much to say about this one. Just avoid skillshots, get early boots to to help with it. Care for exhaust because he can easily kill you with it.

VS

Yasuo

Medium

Skill matchup. If you can get your shurikens around the wind wall you can win easy. But he will be stronger early. Try to farm it out and roam.

Matchups Part 2 Back to Top

238.png Medium: Hit skillshots, and never ulti first. Whoever roams better will usually win.


115.png Medium: Dodge skillshots baitout W, the usual. Roam and farm if you can't dodge well.


26.png Medium: Can't really kill him but you can pressure him and roam. Dodge the bombs and you're fine.


143.png Hard: Very annoying matchup, can't really all in and she out pokes you. Try to roam and farm up later on you can kill her.
