Laning Against Gwen

Laning Against Gwen

Look to fight her when she doesn’t have many Snip Snip!Q stacks as her ability to trade back with you will be reduced. Her damage output will be lower when she has no stacks.

Good times to look for fights are when she has used her Hallowed MistW. When she activates her Hallowed MistW, she will gain bonus defensive stats. If you can bait it out, or disengage when her Hallowed MistW is active, you will find it easier killing her when it is on cooldown.

Extended trades work in her favour. Try and keep them short and sweet- around her Passive.

Strategy VS Gwen

Strategy VS Gwen

Try to harass and poke her down with your abilities before initiating a team fight. She is pretty squishy. If she uses her Hallowed MistW trying to block incoming skill shots, look to start a fight while it’s on cooldown.

Gwen will be split pushing in the mid-game. You can use the numbers advantage to take her down or start a team fight on her team while she is elsewhere on the map.

When playing pick champions like Blitz, Thresh, Ashe, Vel’koz etc, try to get close to her- or at least keep in mind that she can stop you from catching her out with her Hallowed MistW. Bait it out if possible.

Gwen Power Spikes

Gwen Power Spikes

Gwen will be stronger when she has 4 stacks on her Passive. Avoid committing to fights when she has max stacks.

When Gwen unlocks her Ultimate NeedleworkR, she will be much stronger and her trading power increases dramatically.

Extended trades will always work in her favour, especially once she completes an item or two. Avoid fighting her alone unless you can burst her down and kill her.
