How to Elise?

#1ThyCorndogPosted 6/27/2013 1:23:25 PM
I'm at like 6k ip right now and am going to buy Elise later tonight after a couple of games

I know what all of her abilities are, but I don't know any real combos or tactics or anything like that. I tried her once when she was free in a custom game just to try out all of her abilities

Builds seem to be tanky ap (liandrys, rylais, zhonyas, etc). I'm assuming that's typically alright

So, what do I need to know when I try her out in normals later tonight?

Combo: cocoon > volatile spidering > neurotoxin > shapeshift > bite > rappel if they get away > bite again

And yes, tanky AP with a death cap if really ahead

I heard you should always rappel by clicking on the ground instead of targeting an enemy. Is that right? What's the reason for that?

Also, do you usually harass with the spiderling or the neurotoxin?

Clicking the ground with Rappel gives you the invulnerability time, and then you can select a target while hanging, whereas rappelling on a target will immediately drop you onto them. The latter is worse because it gives you less invulnerability time, and the time you have after clicking the ground you can use for a better survey of the situation to make a quick escape.

I'm very passionate about my Scrolls.
I love the way they feel against my skin in the moonlight.

Unfortunately you can only rappel to enemy units and jungle creeps, and you can easy harass with your neurotoxin till you get an opening for cocoon. Just remember that human form Q does percent of current health while spider form Q does percent of missing health, so save the bite as an execute if you can

build pen+tanky

sorc shoes, rylai's, liandry's, zhonya's sometimes, deathcap, frozen heart, spirit of the spectral wraith (builds from faerie charm which is nice early game)

I max QWE but you can max E first for the cooldown reduction. I personally prefer the sustain and burst.

combo is cocoon->human QW ->spider QW, use Rappel to chase ->human Q to execute if they flash

her combos are fairly simple in comparison to jayce

Level Q, E, Q, W, Q, R, Q, W, Q, W, W, R, W, E, E, R, E, E.

Early Game: Harrass with Q human form, if they get in close spider Q, until they're about 40%, Then land a cocoon, Human Q, Spider E onto them and spider Q, In 99.99% of cases they will be dead. Build Haunting Guise and sorc shoes first. the early armour pen with your % based damage is amazing.

General build: Haunting > Sorc > Rylais if dominating, defensive if not. Then after that all tank. Generally jump on the other teams adc and either kill them or force them from the fight.

Elise is a massive lane bully, use that.

well, that was terrible
she's definitely harder to play than Jayce is

then again, I was matched up against a blue Ezreal top
that's probably not a good matchup for her
