Qiyana Strengths & Weaknesses

Her Ultimate Supreme Display of TalentR is game-changing. If she gets one good Ultimate Supreme Display of TalentR off, it could win her team the game. In particular, if she is able to fight inside the jungle, she should easily get a good Ultimate Supreme Display of TalentR off.

Has lots of mobility which can allow her to get on to enemies quickly or escape horrible sticky situations.

Finally, Qiyana has a lot of burst damage thanks to her Elemental Wrath / Edge of IxtalQ. This means she can one-shot enemies in the late game in one combo.


She has tons of combos to master. This makes her a mechanically difficult champion to play and do well on. Expect to put in a lot of games to master her.

Depending on her Element, she can be a less effective laner. The enemy will always know what Element you have and they will be able to play around it. Also, having a certain Element may not be helpful in lane.

If Qiyana is behind, she will not deal any damage in team fights. She may, however, be able to get a good Ultimate Supreme Display of TalentR off.

Game plan
Early game
0 - 15 min
Qiyana is Strong

Your goal in the laning phase is to abuse the enemy and get kills. Try to play aggressive when suitable to get an early lead.

Use your strong 1v1 potential to roam around the map and help your allies secure kills. If you can get kills and help your allies, your chances of winning the game will be much higher.

Once your allies have rotated to the mid lane, rotate to a different lane and split push. It’s important that you do not fall behind in CS and XP by staying mid when there are lots of other champions there.

Flank in team fights to make getting on the enemy backline easily. Make sure you’re near your team at all times so you can get in the fight fast.

After your bot lane has moved to the mid lane, rotate to the bot side of the map or somewhere else on the map so you can continue to farm and gain XP.

As you’re good at getting picks and killing isolated targets, try to ambush and assassinate enemies who are alone or walking around Summoners Rift alone. After killing someone, make the call for a nearby objective.

Qiyana is Average

In the late game, look for picks on immobile or miss positioned enemies. Taking someone down in the late game can give you enough time to force a fight, siege an objective or take the Baron or Elder Dragon.

If the enemy is grouping, look to group with your team too. In team fights, continue to focus the squishiest and easiest to kill high priority targets in the backline.

Power Spikes
Early game0 - 15 min

The first item component will allow her to deal a lot of damage, and her trading will be highly optimized. She will need to conserve health when possible so that she can all-in enemies quickly.

Level 6 is a massive spike and should send shivers down her enemies' spines. She can effectively one-shot any squishy enemy who is wandering around.

She is a perfect early game champion due to the severe burst damage and her ability to take many fights in the river. Her CC and her overall kit allow her to win clumped fights easily.

Mid game15 - 25 min

Level 11 will be another spike for Qiyana, this time in damage increase and reduced cooldown. She will be pretty effective in objective fights.

Her core items will be complete, and her ability to one-shot squishy carries will be really high. It will let her do a lot during neutral, objective fights, and clustered team fights.

Her first ability will be maxed out at level 9. This will result in a massive damage increase and immediately make her a high priority target for the enemy.

Late game25+ min

Level 16 is perfect for Qiyana as her Ultimate Supreme Display of TalentR will be maxed out. She will be dishing out way too much damage for the enemy squishies to handle, and that too very frequently.

Her Ultimate Supreme Display of TalentR is superb during team fights. She can immediately turn the tide of a battle with a well-placed Ultimate Supreme Display of TalentR and help her allies secure crucial objectives during this phase.

She will pretty much be full build during this phase of the game. This means that her damage output will be phenomenal. She can dismantle an enemy team by securing picks before a significant fight.
