Tips Against Qiyana in Middle Lane Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors
lkycch says “If your team is all squishy or has no cc, I suggest dodging in champ select. Aight, don't underestimate her burst damage. Respect her like you're respecting Talon's level 2 first blood potential. She is very difficult to hit and has a devastating stun which separates her from other assassin champions. This means that your positioning in teamfights is highly important; if you get stunned it's game over since you can't ult. Once her dashes are down, you must E+Q+W+Q her so that she can't escape. It's important to coordinate ganks with your jungler to shut her down early. Remember: Summoner's Rift is a 5V5, not a 1v1. You don't have to stay in lane and suffer a losing matchup!”

You honestly do really good early since you outrange her, but it becomes an issue when she oneshots you from stealth. A seekers armguard should render her mostly useless if you can survive the combo!
Manaflow band is king in this match up, 100-0 is extremely likely if you land GLP.”
Drewmatth Taliyah says “Against Qiyana you're interested to duel her pre 6 as often as you can from a longer range and, if possible to make her dash through your E. Get 2x Doran Rings and maybe a cloth armor. Be extremely careful post 6 for her ultimate since most Qiyana players will try to push you into a wall and one-shot you. I would argue that Barrier against her would be more useful than Heal. Be careful on 2vs2 with your jungler or on enemy ganks because if she gets advantage she's a monster in mid game, but falls off late game usually.”
eiensiei says “I'll poke with E and can go for passive procs, but that will put me in her E range. If she does jump to me, I'll shield myself as she AA-Q's once and then grabs another element (which resets both her Q CD and her passive damage). This leaves her with no more mobility abilities, vulnerable to my Q. Pointless calling my jungler for help as she can go invisible with her Q twice in a short span of time. After level 6 it's important to keep track of my surroundings, her R stuns when it knocks a champion back into a brush/wall/river. I'll pay attention to her whereabouts during baron/drake fights especially or she'll quickly wipe out the whole team with a well placed R. She needs to snowball to be useful, she'll try roaming bot/top after 6. It's usually easier for Lux to get a pick than it is for her later on. Zhonya's/Ninja Tabi are both great buys when not doing great against her.”
Sylvan Lore says “Qiyana is a really hard match-up to understand if you haven't tried her yourself. I would highly recommend actually playing a few games of Qiyana if you are struggling with this matchup. Lane phase should be relatively easy since you have the range advantage, but as soon as she hits 6, this lane gets really rough. Zhonya is a must have for her damage. If you zhonya her combo, she won't have anything left over and you should be safe. Recommend vs. AD Assassin and barrier.”
Dr Eggmund says “Qiyana can be very scary, however she is a melee champion so this does make it easier, with great mobility and burst damage she appears to be a threat to Vladimir, we need to farm and poke her like usual, whilst maintaining a safe distance so she doesn't trample all over you.”
Reason97 says “Qiyana can do a stupid amount of damage in lane phase, and she has a lot of movement to get around, but she isnt unstoppable. a good stun will mess up her flow and give you time to retaliate. Also, never forget that her Q has a longer range when it's empowered with an ability, so be careful about playing around it's range. ”
Fuzzmonkey says “Quite a hard match-up since she does out trade you pretty easily and has multiple dashes to dodge your chain. I would suggest using double chains to keep your distance from her and calling your jungler to help you snowball off her too. ”
Yuki H. says “It looks like she is still fairly new and people have not yet fully come to a conclusion on how to play her efficiently, which puts her threat level here. Just know she has incredible kill potential at 6, especially near terrain.”
Impossible2Gank says “You need to work your way to defensive items such as Tabis or Zhyonas Hourglass to stand a chance and try not falling behind while doing so. Stay away from walls and always play around boxes. Armor is recommended early.”
BloooodTV says “D-Blade. You can windwall most of her damage and stop her from comboing you level 3. The biggest part of this matchup is watching for her roaming and stopping her from setting up ganks by getting vision all throughout the river. Take Conq.”
LunarVortex says “While you can technically spellshield her stuns easily, her low cooldowns, good waveclear and high mobility make her difficult to deal with. Keep a Control Ward on the map at all times to reduce her roam potential. Buy an early Seeker's Armguard if necessary.”
TimRhabey says “Her early game is too strong for you to match, her roaming is also super OP and her ult can cancel your whole engage if she uses it right.
Take the electrocute rune setup so you can deal the most damage possible once you all in.”
Fadedreformed says “If she hasn't started with refillable and has a long sword you can try to 1 v 1 her lvl 1 starting with w. Highly recommended to take d-shield and smash her in lane. If she roams you and gets fed by your team then good luck :D”
Coldsong says “Qiyana's multiple dashes make her super slippery, especially when in the jungle. Make sure to not stand too close to terrain so she doesn't get a good R off and stand behind minions to dodge her elemental Q's.”
DaggerTV_ says “Qiyana has the ability to controll you with her water element and her ult. If she catches you of without any way of leaving you probably will die. Try to abuse her when she doesnt have an element. Buy armour'”
Veralion says “HoB/Sword. Your level 3 all in makes this champion cry. If she goes to auto a creep in front of you, maul her. Water Q into Rock Q poking is the only way for her to play this lane, but she will probably underestimate you and close to melee range thinking that she wins. She does not. Going for Seekers depends on who has the lead. She doesn't have much all in potential as long as you stay away from walls after 6. Her ult does knockback for flash distance, so make sure that her dash distance can never put you between her and said walls if your fury isn't full. If she manages to get that full combo off, Seeker's should keep you alive if you were healthy, but you'll definitely be forced to back. Pressing R to immune her knockback and avoid her ult will leave her absolutely defenseless, use it right when she dashes in. One thing to note however, your turret counts as a wall and she can ult it, too. Which is BS, but whatever I guess. This means that you don't have a lot of viable ground to stand on while you are shoved in with low health, so just back if you find yourself in this situation. Aside from that, in most situations I would hold ult and wait for your jungler to all in. It's tough to stick to her and finish her off if she can use grass empowered E, meaning that ulting at her head-on while she is in the middle of the lane will probably just waste your fury and leave you overextended. If she's pushed away from side bushes and holding Rock or Water Q, well, that's a different story. She loves to build mobi boots and roam, so look to catch her facechecking on her way back to lane. ”
SkellyBirb says “Qiyana is extremely strong right now and with her invisibility, she can be really hard to kill. She has a lot of burst as well. If you get a combo on her, you could possibly one shot her.”
Zak247 says “Qiyana probably has one of the most powerful level 3s ever if she gets a full combo on you and you are still alive make sure you keep your distance and farm. Once you get level 6 you can kill her pretty easily with a good combo and ult ”
Frixen says “A terrible matchup. You can poke her,but stay as far away as possible, as as soon as she gets on to you, you're dead. She can roam almost just as well as you can, and she has superior wave clear. This is a terrible matchup, please run bone plating and a defensive summoner spell. (Exhaust or Barrier). Don't stand next to walls either. Good luck cs'ing under turret!”
Big Shawn says “In the current Patch (10.2), I haven't faced many Qiyanas. Therefore this comment will be based on past events. Ekko and Qiyana both have insane burst damage. Which is why this match-up is a 50/50 situation. Should you fall behind, she will win future trades. Should it be the other way around, you will dominate. Your Ultimate will be crucial against hers, unless you dodge it.”
snukumz says “What a bitch!
Push waves so she can't roam.
Be really careful because she has 2 dashes and can dodge your skill shots, as well as gap close and destroy you.
Stay away from walls, and away from your tower when in lane since she can stun you against it.
You can combo her and kill her if she messes up.
Try to poke her when you can. ”
Gageowago says “ She can use her dashes to avoid all your skillshots and can easily half health you level 3 with her E (Q with River) AA. If she's good she can E (Q w/ River) AA you and then ignite (W to get wall) AA Q. Stay away from walls unless you want to lose 40% of your health from her ult alone. If you see her dash directly onto you back up as best you can and wait for a clean shot at charm while hovering your flash or ult to avoid her ult. If she goes in on you with her empowered q and you know she has her w dash up, wait until she uses it to reposition herself and then go for an easy charm.”
Noodles912 says “Seekers, hug tower, farm, outscale. You cant trade with her much. She has potential to do amazing damage. Stay away from minions to prevent her AOE damage, and stay away from walls after level 6. You outscale at 11 if played safely.”
Sanctuar says “Due to her versatile kit as well as high mobility in lane, trading with her seems almost impossible. You can hit her with W while she's invisible, avoid fighting near walls as she excels there with her ultimate.”
roskataka says “Try to dodge her skillshots and you should be fine, don't fight her until you have your protobelt for dodging skillshots and engaging. Don't tower dive her unless you have her ult and Barrier/Cleans(better case) up.”
JacWilly says “Very even lane, dont ult her first , dodge her ult with your ult, as when you ult, she gets a free ult on you if near a wall, allowing you to do no damage as your stunned, by the time you are able to move again, you are more than likely dead.”
BigBushMan says “Qiyana is actually a slightly easier matchup, despite her insane burst, you can easily dodge it with your E and look to all-in her. Stay away from walls at level 6 and beyond and you will be just fine, and most importantly, dodge the Ocean Q. It will enable her burst if you don't. ”
serruh says “used to be a lot harder before her q got nerfed in the early ranks, now you can actually lane into her until you get some armor. do not underestimate her all in though, as she will kill if you disrespect and dont get armor or hang around on low hp. will be a menace in teamfights, as this champ can 0/20 and still provide decent utility and dmg and can obviously flip some roams and turn the game on its own. all this considered, should not be able to fight you one on one once you get some items”
Noodles912 says “Play safe, and look for engage trades. She is like a similar version of you, so you can call it "skill based". Post 6, stay away from walls, and E if it is a must. Look to roam when you can.”
SQBv2 says “Very strong early game champ, build Zhonya's Hourglass first. Qiyana's burst is too strong with her ult. You need to play carefully post level 3. But harass her level 1 and 2 so you can take charge of the lane early and force her to recall.”
1Recycle Bin1 says “Hard to deal with, but manageable, don't stick to walls, build seeker's if needed, the more you the higher your damage output is, it'd be ideal if you can predict when she's going to use her water/ice Q and dodge it, your ult counter's her invisibility.”
ur_mom_gay says “Rough because you kind of have to sit back and let her do her thing in lane. Hard to hit since she has 2 dashes to avoid your Q's. If you engage with R she can hide in her invis, so try to open with WEQ when fighting her. Don't get behind and you should be able to fight her in the midgame.”
583498534583 says “talon ve zed kadar olmasa da qiyana da zor bir matchuptır erken bir maceracının pazubendi tercih edilebilir ( FARM YAPIP 13 14. DAKİKADA ASIRLIK SOPAYI BİTİREBİLECEKSENİZ EĞER PAZUBENDİNE HARCAYACAĞINIZ GOLD YÜZÜNDEN BİTMEYECEKSE TEKRARDAN DÜŞÜNEBİLİRSİNİZ)”
NebuIa says “Don't stand too close to walls. Be ready to bubble her right as she e's if you have good reflexes, or until after she w's away. Watch for facechecking her after she roams, as she may bush camp and kill you instead. Consider barrier if you have trouble.”
MarkeleleYasuo says “You cant rely on your windwall because her q kind of explodes in the middle, dont try to fight her unless you are really confident, you have to sit under turret and farm up, her kill pressure is to high, just ping when she goes for a roam and then push asap and get a quick recall ”
Marumo says “Threat level 8.
A cautious 4. I've only played against a Qiyana twice but both times it has been a struggle in lane. She has a good deal of strength but I found in both cases that when we left the laning phase they fell to pieces.”
Cloud375 says “This is a somewhat fun skill matchup to play. She is a melee champ with dashes and a hard hitting ultimate. There are only two things to be aware of when fighting her in lane.
1. Before level 2 don't be afraid to hit her constantly, but be more careful once she hit's level 2 due to her dashes - She can kill you with them if she is good.
2. Once she hits level 6, keep a good distance away from her, but more importantly, keep a good distance away from all walls and turrets, her ultimate can definitely waste you if it lands.
Other than that, this is a fun lane where the better player wins, no stupid "Your damage is absolutely BS" because if she starts to oneshot you, it is COMPLETELY your fault for not being able to stop her from becoming that strong.”
Garybaldo says “Buy early armor, don't underestimate her burst, stay far from walls, other than that she's not much of a threat as she can't push you under turret without putting her in danger of you landing a combo onto her, you outscale pretty hard. Use your W to see if she's roaming, spam-ping the hell out of sidelanes when missing, she has good roam potential”
hoppyscotch says “if you block her ult and at least a q you will always win. But she will just shit on you if she lands her ult, quite a hard matchup, if she engages on you when you dont have windwall you are dead.”
Vispectra says “AD champion automatically means a pretty hard match-up. She's not exception. Besides that bitchy attitude she will constantly poke you and if you fall below 50% hp , she could easily end up killing you. That R might always screw you if you try to use your ult to fight her. She's got a strong lane but beyond that it should be okay for you. I'd advise Dark seal and 3 pots to try to stick to the lane.”
Best Akali Fra says “Qiyana is one of the most biggest counter of Akali. She have broken mobility (W/Z + E), she can easily pokes you (Q/A) and stun (R) !! Just try to trade her at level 1 with your early combo before she goes to level 2.”
SepekuAW says “This matchup is very hard for syndra if they rush hex drinker. Qiyana can one shot you even from behind, if they don't rush hexdrinker you can one shot as well. There's no real specific tips vs qiyana that i can give as my knowledge vs her is still kinda small. Just be weary of walls when fighting her, and try to proc electrocute once, then wait for it to come back off CD. all in as soon as its back up if shes not full hp.”
PandaSenpai101 says “Pre-6 parry the water/river element Q, After 6, be mindful of how you parry, as her threat level comes hard at level 3 and 6. Make sure that she can't get many roams off, as she can make some really impacting roams.”
maplecat21 says “I actually haven't seen her yet, but based on her kit, she doesn't seem too much of a threat. Similar to akali, just don't hug walls post 6, and try and avoid fighting in bushes/river. Notably, your wall doesn't proc her ult explosions.”
BotanakBim says “Qiyana is a mid melee champion but most of her abilities are ranged. When her R is used against a wall an orange area will appear and if caught in there you will be stunned. This is a very avoidable situation by using your E or using your flash. ”
Strider_lol says “Qiyana has the ability to one shot you while you, and potentially Taric as well, are stunned. The lack of counter-play to her burst makes her ban worthy if you find her in your games a lot,”
Rhoku says “Qiyana cannot beat you at all. Her stealth is annoying to deal with but she is completely manageable. Just make sure she cannot use her invisibility to get away and she is just dead. You can use your E to screw with her combo too by cancelling her dash thing.”
Loul_60 says “In the early game she might be a bit of a pain, but once you get either form you can either one shot her as Blue or not get one shot by her as Red. It's surprisingly easy to hit your W on her, despite her many dashes. If you're timing is perfect you can even completely dodge her ult.”
DarkArbalist613 says “Her Versatility makes her hard to master, but if she is good you'll be beat in pretty much every matchup, as she can follow you over walls and stun you with her Q. Play off Cooldowns.”
Fresh Diamond says “Qiyana has the ability to one shot you while you, and potentially Taric as well, are stunned. The lack of counter-play to her burst makes her ban worthy if you find her in your games a lot”
Sorrowful Prince says “Didn't see her in a long time. If you encounter this rare species outpace her with your ganks. If you snowball before she can it is doomed for her. Her invisibility sounds good against you but as soon as she's locked inside your ultimate even her invis can't safe her. Your passive shield is really good against her as well.”
