“Spin away from the fear. Make sure you are away from the minions he hits when his passive is up, because the free damage can add up quickly. You can fight him between passive procs. Don't let him roam to other lanes for free. If he does go for a side lane gank after a back, punish him by taking several turret platings. ”
“Can't side lane, can't lane.
You can die though, try to break spellshield before using ult off his ult otherwise you're dead.
If he can't use fear tether, you have a good chance of turning it but post 2 items he's just unkillable due to lifesteal.”
“He can block your stun with his spellshield, making him horrible to deal with. You have to E him, then wait for his spellshield to run out before throwing Qs at him. Just hope your teammates have enough cc to lock him down. If not, I suggest dodging this one!”
“Out of position and you're death, thats it. You can try to poke him before he has his tiamat, but after that he can just shove waves insanely fast with his passive, tiamat and Q. This will allow him to roam. If he runs nimbus cloak it's impossible to escape him.”
“He can spellshield your Q and/or R, constantly push you under tower, outdamage you, outroam you and ult you every time you step away from your tower. This match-up is an absolute nightmare (hah get it). In the mid- and lategame, try to bait him into stupid engages and lock him down after he uses his spellshield. Buy an early Seeker's Armguard if necessary. Your W does NOT consume his Spellshield.”
“Its like talon but not as bad, kinda. He has cc and a spell shield but less poke and burst. His roams only happen at 6 and if you play far enough back he cant kill you without ult. Force him to chose roam or lane kills and let the team know when he is missing fast. Barrier and exhaust give you chances to kill him. ”
“Not too common, but hard to deal with. His wave clear is insane and after level 6, his roam will be good to. He also can block your E.”
“When Nocturne uses R, fall back. If he fears you, fall back. If the fear fails, you can win a fight. Avoid using R into spell shield.”
“I know its usually not seen but, when you do see him mid, its going to a rough laning phase. He has a spell shield, a fear, amazing roaming, and an impactful ult. He has the capability of killing early. Play safe and put wards to stop a roam. ”
“Spell shield, lock-on fear, poke damage and a counter-roam ult. Try not to get feared and force your flash. ”
