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

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.”

Yamikaze says “Major: This lane can go either way depending on who has a lead. More information found below.”

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.”
Yeager says “ You can win this matchup by baiting her Q and then go for trades. If she hits Q, she will run you down with her twin fangs + phase rush. When you get augmented e you can wave clear much faster than her and roam. ”

Polarshift says “Slows, slows, slows. Counters you quite damn hard since you're insanely immobile and she outranges you with her abilities. Her W and R will keep you in place or slow you, even if you dodge her ultimate it will slow you.”

roselol says “skill matchup. want to make sure you dont get poked down with her e's. if she chases you down, you can put e in your path so she gets punished.”
Yasukeh says “ This matchup goes from one of your hardest, to one of your easiest if you take phase rush. The entire point of this champion is to kite you, and when you have phase rush, you can't be kited. Her W is useless, as you can just run right past it easily and get your spin off. If you take Q poke in lane, back off a bit, so she can't follow up with Twin Fangs. ”

PlayCabex says “before level 6 and first item, just try to farm and poke , after then you will win”

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).”
TALIYAH PRIMER: Ultimate Guide to Taliyah MID [S11 ITEMS] by Drewmatth Taliyah | Taliyah Player
Yeager says “You have the range advantage, so you can kite her pretty well at all stages in the game. She's immobile if she doesn't hit her Q, so play around that, and get boots if necessary since it's a skillshot. At level 6 you only have to watch out for her flash ult. Always turn your back when you see her ult animation go off, so you get slowed instead of stun. ”

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.”
GoliathGames' Ultimate Guide to Urgot (2M+ Mastery Points) by I Am Goliath | Urgot Player
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 PASSIONATE GUIDE TO TEEMO by Sovereign Kitten | Teemo Player
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.”
{11.2} The Gangplank Compendium by Kippari | Gangplank Player
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. It helps to be near minions so that you can Q kill a minion and then run towards her with Phage Movement Speed. 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.”
MarkFromSingedMains says “Ground gang. She slaps hard and her passive/phase rush means she can keep up with you. Dodge her Q and stay out of her W to have a fighting chance from my experience. Rylai's is really useful here to slow her down when she chases you.”

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!”
UPDATED ITEMS!! - [11.2] JUST1KB'S DARIUS GUIDE! by Justkb | Darius Player
Phrxshn says “3 of her skills are skillshot based. Will be up to you if this will be easy or hard match-up. Noxious Blast(Q) which is a poison blast, must be dodged to be able to trade. Miasma which is 5 second AOE that should be avoided as it can apply slow + grounding. Petrifying Gaze(R) can be avoided if you face away from Cassiopeia. (Recommended Items: Rylai's Scepter, Force of Nature or Cosmic Drive) (Sustained 1v1 Trades: Cassiopeia or Singed if he dodges all skillshots) (Outscaling Edge: Cassiopeia)”

Anoying bro5 says “She scales hard and she is fairly strong against Fiora early game. Attack when lvl 3 and and try to riposte her Q or any of her venom damage. She is very fast and good at kiting so try to land the riposte mainly for the slow. Predicting her ult with your riposte will come naturally. You can also see her turn around before the ult fairly easily.”
SethPRG says “Not too bad early game, go in for a heavy trade level 1. Just make sure to dodge their Q early-game and you should win. Rush Mercury Treads to have the movement speed advantage and additional Tenacity. After level 6 it starts to get tricky, to win you'll need to either face away from their ult or use yours to dodge it, but both require good prediction, it's easier said than done. After they get their first 2 items it's very hard to play this matchup, they will run you down and you can't flash/R them when grounded. They melt you in team fights and run your team down too all while abusing Conqueror as a mage, it's not fun. In team fights focus your CC on them, and try to catch them out in sidelanes with your team if possible. Go Executioners and rush Abyssal Mask, or Spirit Visage if you have an enchanter.”

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.”

ELOSANTA says “Cassiopeia can lock down Lucian easily with her Miasma (W) and she out damages Lucian in almost all stages of the game, pre 6 you can duel her if you dodge her Q, post 6 avoid all duels unless engaging with team.”

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.”

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.”
