Taliyah counter tips
Laning Against Taliyah
Try to match Taliyah’s wave clear during the laning phase. Matching her wave clear will reduce her ability to roam.
Taliyah doesn’t gain access to a damaging Ultimate R at level 6. If you’re a champion with a strong Ultimate, try to abuse her weakness at this time.
When trading with Taliyah, always keep behind at least 1 minion. This will make it very difficult for her to deal damage with her Q. Make sure you also watch out for her W.
Strategy VS Taliyah
Taliyah will want to delay a team fight for as long as possible while she pokes you down with her Q. Try and force a fight as soon as you spot her.
Avoid splitting up and playing alone. Taliyah’s Ultimate R will allow her to pick off enemies who are alone or isolated without assistance. Do not push up too far forward if you have no one nearby.
Taliyah has good pick potential with her W. If you don’t know where Taliyah is in the mid-game, do not walk around Summoners Rift alone and avoid areas without vision as she may be looking to set up a surprise attack.
Taliyah Power Spikes
Taliyah’s kill pressure doesn’t increase at level 6 but her ability to roam does. If you’re strong at level 6, try to abuse her.
After she has her first item completed, Taliyah can quickly push the wave with her Q. Ensure you’re always behind the minion wave or outside of it so she cannot push and poke at the same time.
The more items she gets the stronger Taliyah will be. Avoid letting her poke you down with Q as she will deal lots of damage to you. In particular, do not let her delay a team fight with her Q.
