Tips Against Cassiopeia in Middle Lane Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors

crabbix says “Don't stand in the W. Don't stand in the W. Don't stand in the W.”
Fuzzmonkey says “Cassiopeia is a ok match up. The only problem is, once you've gone in, you really need to commit for the kill otherwise she will out DPS you. Reason for this is when you go in with your W, Cassio can then place her W on your W image and will ground you. So, if you ended up going back on your W, this will allow her to get an easy Q-E spam on you. Either wait for her W to go on cooldown or all in her.”

eiensiei says “If she hits her Q, I'll wait for the movement speed burst to fade before using my Q. If I hit, I'll follow up with AA-E-AA; if not, I'll W and walk away. Mercury's Treads are a good buy here if I'm losing lane, and can get them really early - Lost Chapter > Merc's > Luden's Echo. After 6 if she's trying to chase me down, I won't risk turning around to Q since she might use that time to stun me with her R. Also if I'm getting low on HP I'll Flash immediately and not give her time to cast W and ground me.”

Kippari says “She does damage, is fast and no cooldowns. Take Fleet or Grasp and trade when she misses her Q. Best tip is take Fleet and TP, start Doran's Shield and just farm until Sheen and beg your jungler for ganks.”
ChimpNA says “Skill dependent matchup pre 6. Be careful of her All in level 2 as she can all in you if she hits a Q. Level 6 is easy but one thing to note thats VERY important is instead of doing your normal E-W-Q-R Combo you want to do E-Q-R first as she will try to R you while you have your R active. By doing this combo you can W behind her while R'ing to avoid getting R'd.”

Yeager says “Cassio can screw you over with her miasma, making you unable to use any movement abilities/summs including Q3, E1, E2, R and flash. Her ultimate will stun you on the spot if you're facing in her direction, and she will shred you to pieces with twin fangs if you're poisoned. Rush tier 2 boots asap so you can dodge her skill shots more easily. If her miasma is up, you want to go for super short trades where it won't screw you over. Go in with E + Q3 and then hit her as much as possible before she's able to use abilities again, and BACK OUT with E2 before she uses her miasma. Her miasma has a 24 second cooldown early game. Cassiopeia maxes that spell out last, so your E will end up being on a much lower cooldown. With the second engage you can go for the kill. She will most likely use her ultimate when you're going for the knock up with Q, so MAKE SURE to turn around. It will only slow you instead of stunning. If you succeed in doing that, then you're going to win all the trades. If you get stunned by your ultimate, there's a super high chance that you're dead. She will follow up with miasma so you can barely move and then kill you. ”

Drewmatth Taliyah says “Start Doran + 2 Pots if 1) You think you can outplay her and hit your W's to generate a kill at levels 3-5 or 2) You think she will burst you down post 6 (get an extra ring). Start Corrupting if you think you will not hit your W's (or you will get poked down) and you rely more on wave clear/spammy poke (you will be way more squisher but more durable -- this is recommended if you are sure you will not get hit by CC spells and instantly die). Rather difficult matchup if it's a very good Cassio. Early try to get boots as fast as you can to dodge as many Q's as you can (since Q enables her). You can play the range advantage with your Q but if you get close be careful since her movement speed (phase rush maybe) can make you miss your W. Her ult is highly predictable and you can dodge it if you turn around right when you see the animation starting. (You need some practice for this but in time it becomes easy). The impossible thing to dodge is the R->Flash ult - so keep in mind that a good player might do that to kill you. A good player might also try to kill you pre 6 and kick you out of the lane. If you hit your W E Q's combo you have a good chance at winning but otherwise I'd just push and roam because it's a rather annoying and difficult matchup (kind of like Azir).”

richardlized says “Early levels cassiopeia is pretty mana dependent, so you can make her waste mana and health. She cannot really trade with you unless you let her hit Q. You will win all trades unless you get hit. You can freeze the wave early and you kinda out range her after level 3. She also has a bad early which you can abuse. After six, you can dodge her ulti with a simple hidden shadow combo. Keep in mind, she has really good scaling so don’t let her farm up and become a menace. Keep in mind her W gives her free stun if you ult her. So make her use W first before all inning. ”

Lynter says “Runa Recomendada: Eletrocutar. Cassiopeia usará o Q na Katarina nos níveis iniciais ou AA+E e é nesse momento que você precisa tomar cuidado para ela não crescer no jogo, pois caso ela tire muito de sua vida nos níveis iniciais, poderá morrer com facilidade. Katarina pode jogar agressivo contra Cassiopeia no nível 2, mas só deve agressivar caso Cassiopeia errar o Q. No nível 3, pode agressivar com EW+AA+QE+AA caso ela erre o Q, mas precisa tomar cuidado com o W da Cassiopeia e se reposicionar assim que o cooldown do Q da Cassiopeia voltar. Depois do nível 6 ou da Hextech Gunblade, basta você agressivar com o combo, olhar para trás e ultar nela. Cassiopeia não terá como petrificar Katarina com seu R e você ainda estará ultando ela. Caso ela perceba que você fez isso e use flash para trás de você para usar o R, olhe para o lado oposto para negar a ultimate dela, e se reposicione pois sem a ultimate talvez não consiga finalizá-la. Em teamfights, fique atento ao W e ao R da Cassiopeia, principalmente o flash+R, pois poderá te impedir de fugir ou poderá te prender até a morte. Foque-a assim que puder visto que seu dano é alto e é em área. O potencial de perigo de Cassiopeia é de igual para igual visto que Cassiopeia possui muita velocidade de movimento, muito dano e muita cura, além de impedir que Katarina fuja usando seu W ou R. ”
[S11] Lynter's Katarina Guide (PT-BR) by Lynter | Katarina Player
Vicksay says “Scary snake lady punishes mistakes really hard, if you miss an E while in range of her Q or make a mistake with your R you're pretty much done for without Flash. If she takes Cleanse she can also pummel you even if you do hit the E. Great at level 2, scales like a monster and hard to punish if she's good at her champ. However not 100% unwinnable, as she is still immobile and can be shut down by roams.”

Tips Against Cassiopeia in Top Lane Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors

I Am Goliath says “This matchup is really annoying and pretty similar to other mage top lanes where it's hard to land your E, but because of her ultimate stunning you and her W grounding you making it to where you can't E, it can be a little bit harder to kill Casseiopeia, I like to go doran's shield and second wind in this matchup, and second item adaptive helm can be very strong in this matchup as well, early merc treads are also a great option. My best tip is to try to turn away when you think she is going to ultimate you to avoid the stun, you'll also have to have your W off when you do this, if you avoid her stun from ultimate you should be able to get an E on her if you land Q and pickup a kill. E flash can also secure you kills in this matchup.”

Drake6401 says “A growing popular top laner because apparently hand to hand combat is too difficult for many. Her W is the biggest issue because you can't dash from it. It has a 24 second cooldown and she maxes it last so baiting it out is an effective strategy. Beating her ultimate is extremely hard since your engage is so linear. Your Q actually turns your back on her and will avoid the stun though timing this with the moment you turn is so hard, it's not worth leaning on. She will need to be shutdown early because her damage scaling is ridiculous and she heals like crazy when she takes Conqueror. ”

Rhoku says “TL;DR - ONE OF THE HARDEST MATCHUPS PERSONALLY FOR ME. DON’T EAT TOO MUCH POKE. SHE STRAIGHT UP BEATS YOU PRE-3. TRIPLE BEAD IS MANDATORY IF YOU TAKE TOO MUCH POKE. DSHIELD IS FOR IF YOU ARE A BETTER PLAYER. PHASE RUSH WORKS INTO HER BUT SO DOES CONQUEROR RESOLVE + SECOND WIND + UNFLINCHING. IF TAKING PHASE RUSH, TAKE NIMBUS CLOAK. BAIT HER TO WALK TOWARDS YOU. TRY TO PULL HER WHEN SHE IS ATTEMPTING TO Q YOU. RUN AWAY IF SHE LANDS Q. TRY TO FORCE FIGHT IF SHE MISSES Q. TRY NOT TO FACE HER ULTIMATE. DON’T STAND IN HER MIASMA. SPECTRE’S COWL/NEGATRON CLOAK. MERC BOOTS. ALL GOOD ITEMS VS HER. Cassiopeia is a nightmare to deal with. She has movespeed, she has annoying poke, she has a difficult to counterplay ultimate AND, thanks to new Conqueror, heals up a LOT in all ins AND has early AP. Not to mention how she can ground you which stops you from using your ultimate. I’d recommend taking Conqueror with Second Wind and Unflinching if you wanna be safe. Resolve seconary with Nimbus can potentially work but it is SO risky. She will try to use her Q to poison you and then run you down with her Es. If you get hit by her poison, back off IMMEDIATELY. You will NOT win the fight. If she MISSES her poison, you have an opening to all in her. Try to walk back and then run towards her as she walks towards you to hit her abilities. If she takes Phase Rush, she will be more difficult to stick to but on the other hand, you will actually be able to kill her in an all in. If she takes Conqueror, her missing her Q is your only hope. She is weaker pre-6 so try to get on. Let her push the wave and then run her down with ghost. Having a Jungler helps a lot. Lastly, Force of Nature helps a lot into Cassio so if you are getting your ass beat, get an early Negatron Cloak and then build it into a FoN after Merc boots + Stridebreaker. If she is bad and allows you to kill him then just build normally and snowball on her. Be sure to give up minions and play the ranged matchup properly. You are gonna need almost ALL of your HP to beat her. Stridebreaker is REALLY great vs Cassio so if you are losing, try to play safe until you can get it.”
ForgottenProject says “Stupid Damage Early Game and Constant Kiting. Plus Hourglass are Broken which is the main reason you even see Mages Top-Lane. [1]Start with Corrupting Pot and Play Passive. [2]Parry her Ultimate/Turn Around(Comes with Practice) [3]Rush Mercury Treads. Get Quicksilver Sash if you don't want to get Mercury Treads against their Team comp.”

MrDomian says “She can dominate you by countering your skills with its stain. Play defensively and dominate her in late game with your team.”

Sovereign Kitten says “Cassiopeia's main problem is her (Q) into her (E) spam which is impossible to avoid after being poisoned. Turn your back to her (R). If you are not familiar with her animations I would advise to check some Youtube videos related to it. Against her I recommend you to work on kiting and baiting out her poisons before trades. She is relatively fast for a champion that can't wear boots. The second you get struck by (Q) or (W) she will follow up with her (E) that can be spammed over and over, which really hurts! They tend to run Conqueror which heals her for a lot. You can't really dodge her (W), but you can build a bit more defensively while building into damage to make up for her damage.”

The_Unf0rgiv3n says “This matchup will either be very easy or very hard. Avoid her Q's when you go in for trades and at level 6, try not to use EQ to knock her up for your ult (unless she's at like 20% hp) because you will need to use E to dash through her and avoid getting stunned right after your ult. Just rush shieldbow as fast as possible!”

Justkb says “This is a hard lane for Darius as Cassiopeia can poke from range and stay out of combat with Phase Rush. Make sure you dodge her Q as then she will have to waste her W to stop you from trading. Make sure that you start Dorans Sheild and rush Mercs treads! Your third item has to be an Adaptive helm!”

LoLReal says “Nothing we can do in this lane, horrible match up for us. Get early cowl and farm under turret.”
Rhoku says “One of the worst matchups for Mordekaiser. Your only hope is to ult her after she uses her miasma after which it should no longer be a factor and you might be able to edge out a kill. Cassiopeia is not only a complete counter, she is also braindead easy to play into Mordekaiser so you can't even rely on mistakes. She is the only lane I'd strongly recommed a Spectre's Cowl rush. There is not much you can do as she will dodge your E with her crazy movemetn speed. and if you do catch her, she will just Miasma you and walk away while chunking you down. Just play safe, don't get hit my her Qs EVER and try to chunk her down with a Q or two if you can. I'd save them for csing however. Ask for Jungle help if possible. Protobelt rush is good here. Wait for R with which you can kill her in rare cases. But if she is good, then its gonna be tough. D.Shield and Second Wind are a must.”

Tips Against Cassiopeia in Bottom Lane Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors

Chaeha says “Cassiopeia base damage is incredibly high and makes the early levels extremely miserable. Cassiopeia's miasma also grounds units not allowing you to use Kai'Sa's ultimate as a repositioning tool.”

LegendaryOstrich says “Cassiopeia's W (Miasma) has a root affect making Lucian's dash and flash unusable. Her Q range is longer than Lucian's auto attack range making this a difficult match up inside and outside of lane. To survive lane I recommend a healing support or someone who can all in on her without a dash (Thresh Blitz Brand etc.) Try to bait out her Q while you are going for CS and if you do get hit by it dash away immediately until the poison wares out.”

FunkyBeagle says “We've been seeing her pick number as an ADC diminish, BUT, she still is extremely dangerous against a Kai'Sa. She has her W to counter your E and R, stopping you from repositioning or attempting to run away.”
