Qiyana counter tips
Qiyana Power Spikes
The brief period of downtime between each Enchantment pick up will be your go-to time to harass her as she will not have a powerful Q that has an empowerment.
Be careful when going for short trades with Qiyana as she prefers them over long extended ones. If you meet her inside the jungle or in the river, do not fight her unless you get the jump onto her or have a clear advantage.
Qiyana will look to gank low health lanes or laners with CC. If she cannot find any ganks early, she will power farm till 6 where she gets her R. Then she will actively look to gank when it’s up. Try to get your lanes ahead so she is less likely to pick up free kills
Laning Against Qiyana
Qiyana’s team fight presence is huge. Spread out and do not fight in choke points like inside the jungle or under a Tower to reduce her usefulness.
Split pushing could be a good way to counter Qiyana’s R, but ensure that the players who are facing her do not get caught out by her R as she will usually use it to start the team fight.
Burst damage is one of the biggest problems Qiyana faces because she doesn’t always buy defensive items. As soon as she uses her E aggressively, burst her down.
Qiyana Power Spikes
The level 6 power spike for Qiyana is pretty strong because it gives her a game changing Ultimate that can be used in plenty of ways. If you see her making towards your lane, ensure that you run through the middle of the lane to escape. Do not stand close to the walls.
During the mid game is where Qiyana truly shines. This is because she is a great team fighter thanks to her R. Unlike many other Assassins, Qiyana actually favours team fighting 5v5. Do not group to close to the wall during this time as she may look to engage.
Once Qiyana has her jungling item completed, she will be looking to duel and trade more frequently thanks to the extra damage and cooldown reduction it will provide. Unless you have a clear advantage, be cautious when heading into the 1v1.
