General information

nami Abilities

Description
Cooldowns

Surging Tides

P

All alied champions touched by any of Nami's abilities gain bonus movement speed. This effect is doubled when touched by Tidal Wave.

Aqua Prison

Q

Nami sends a bubble towards a target area, which deals magic damage, reveals and stuns enemies on impact for 1.5 seconds.

Ebb and Flow

W

Nami sends a stream of water to the target champion or herself, bouncing to nearby champions up to twice, alternating between allies and enemies. Ebb and Flow heals allies and deals damage to enemies.

Tidecaller's Blessing

E

Nami buffs an allied champion or herself, causing the target's next three basic attacks to deal bonus damage and slow.

Tidal Wave

R

Nami summons a tidal wave that moves forward, dealing magic damage and knocking up all enemies it hits, slowing them afterwards.

Basic Combos

Harassing in Lane

AA
W

Try to harass the enemy with AAs and cast W on yourself to heal back missing health and gain movement speed to get out of the trade.

Engage

E
AA
Q

Cast E on yourself and attack the champion you want to engage on. The slow of your E now makes it easier for you to land your Q on the Enemy.

CC Chain

R
Q

Hitting your Q is easier when the enemy is not able to move freely. So casting your Q after your R makes it easy to hit and CC the enemy for a good amount of time.

Quick tips to play Nami

Try to trade with the enemy as often as you can by hitting them with a

W . Make sure you stand in range of the enemy once the
W
hits so it can bounce back and heal you.

You need to stand in the backline and protect your ADC and other backline champions at all costs. If you stand too far forward, it will cost you.

Set up picks with your

R and your
Q
whenever the enemy over extends. For best results, use your
R
from darkness so the enemy has less time to react to it.
