“Pre 6 you should win easily by riposting her Q scissors. It is fairly easy to see the animation to riposte, but you can also predict her to use it when she builds stacks under her health bar with auto attacks. You win extended trades with vitals. After 6 you can riposte her Q or her 3rd ult of needles.”
“Select Biscuit Delivery or Time Warp Tonic and try to destroy it before level 6.
After level 6, wait for the jungler.
You can try to kill her with your R, if she is close.”
“I have played against Gwen twice, so I will update this matchup with more helpful advice when I face it more.
For now, it seems that Gwen sucks into ranged champs.
The main goal is to bait her W, and if she uses it, blind her and then walk back, Her W lasts 5 seconds, and I typically just wait for it to expire before engaging on her.
If I blind her she can't even hit me, so even though she is untargetable, I am too with blind. Play really aggro, and play around her W CD. Do not dive if her W is up.
“You have to fight Gwen from behind or aside to avoid her frontal cone attack such as Snip-Snip(Q) or Needlework(R). Purely a skilled match-up based on if you can dodge her skillshots. Try to force her out on her Hallowed Mist(W) so she doesn't get defensive buffs.
(Sustained 1v1 Trades: Even) (Outscaling Edge: Gwen) (Recommended Items: Thornmail or Morellos)”
“Gwen is a wierd match-up, she wins with her level 1 e, so dont fight her at all, at level 2-5 you win, and at 6 she wins if you dont dodge any of her 3 ult casts, you can also use e to dodge her q true damage, but because of how we self root ourselves during our q she will generally use that self-root to land her q's, so you have to constantly move around and hold e's to dodge her q's.
watch for her tabis/brambles rushes and her riftmaker, if you get exec and some MR mid game you can actually out 1v1 her but you have to play perfectly, alas, otherwise, this is a skill match up in her favor. ”
“Skill Matchup. She deals a lot of damage and can heal up if you trade long. Going for Grasp and maxing E will make the difference in this matchup.”
“She is very strong early, but as long as she doesn't get a huge lead you will outscale her once you hit 11. Keep her passive stacks in mind as she may be able to dash on you and get a trade in early. She can also somewhat do this post 6, as she can poke you and then run away in her zone. It is safer not to follow her and instead settle for whatever damage you got during the trade. Her ult slows you down by a lot, so if you get low she can finish you off very easily and you won't be able to get away. You scale much better than her though, so it all depends on who farms better. In the late game, if she goes in her zone, you shouldn't follow her into it, as you should be trying to play the ranged game against her.”
“She will become untargetable. Her ult deals a lot of damage and slows. She has a dash. - Gwen his easy to deal with if you know what you're doing, play aggressive early and CS at the same time, then when she's level 6, play safe because of her Ult.”
“Proc her bone plating., then go for the all-in level 1. You're basically the same champ but she's ranged and has BS W. Your ult lets her heal off you for free with hers, so if you use it make sure to dodge the needles, though honestly if you need to use ult near her you'll lose the all-in, so just try and escape.
Wolf can bite though her BS shield, because he's technically inside it.”
“Go Second Wind+DBlade. She is super strong in all-ins, so buy MR and healing reduction, wait for lvl 9 then you win. Farm as much creeps as possible, because she'll try to zone you off with her Q's. Don't R from far away when her W is up. You are also stronger in mid game.”
