Tips Against Sivir in Bottom Lane Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors
koog says “It's pretty difficult to deal with the lethality sivir build. She will usually be spam wave clearing and throwing Qs at you out of your range. Try to constantly hit the wave, and if you ever end up hitting her with gravitum, make sure you wait out her spellshield before you root her. ”
Vapora Dark says “Sivir is weak against auto attacks, strong against abilities and stupidly powerful at rushing down teams/targets. Avoid her Q at all costs as it will deal a lot of damage, and try and bait her spellshield with a W or direct Q to then set up a snare or a bounced Q. Her ult makes it a struggle to properly set up your Ult, so it should pretty much exclusivly be used as a follow up to a teamfight rather than one during/before. ”
LostFishEU says “Sivir has a lot of poke with her Q and her W, but you out sustain her by utilizing your life steal. She doesn't have any all in ability's that deal a lot of damage. The only thing she can do against you is to use her Spell Shield against your Condemn.”
A_Drunk_Carry says “She gets free mana back from her spell shield whenever she feels like it. Outranges you with her Q and W. Play the lane very conservatively at first. Ezreal is a much stronger pick overall, you just have to get there. ”
A_Drunk_Carry says “This lane is extremely easy. She's both out of favor of the meta, and just not that strong. Also her spell shield can be dropped with your E or Q, ensuring that your full ult will hit in teamfights. ”
Amberdragon says “Sivir has better push than you, long range poke/burst, movement speed on her ult, and her E nullifies yours. Not the prettiest matchup. She will get mana hungry if she tries to harass you too much, and will try to bait you into using your E to get her mana back. When going all in on her, use your W and Q to pressure her into using E before you, and once it's down you can look to turn on her using flash, galeforce or R combined with E to finish her off. Avoid getting hit by her Q.”
Coldsong says “Sivir is annoying but easy for Samira. As long as you dodge her Q you demolish her. Bait out her E spellshield and go in, you WILL kill her. Just make sure to W her ricochet basic attacks.”
Melyn says “Hard to win but hard to lose. Stand away from minions to not get hit by her W and learn her spell shielding tendencies. Does she block the first spell you throw or always a specific one? Max your skills and throw them accordingly.”
LegendaryOstrich says “Sivir will try to push you under tower by using her W and Q on the minion wave, by doing so, you can easily take advantage of her spells being on cooldown and winning the trade BE SURE TO USE YOUR W WHEN SHE SPELL SHIELDS TO ALLOW YOUR Q TO DEAL DAMAGE.”
Penguto says “Sivir very easy matchup. You can root her whenever you want so its hard for her to put shield. Her R wont be a big deal cause you can just use Severum Q and run away. But overall you can out life steal her easy win.”
Simon Uchinora says “The only annoying thing about sivir is her Q and E, is easy to kill Sivir, she has no escape skills, just becareful to not ult when she has the E because caitlyn's ultimate get canceled by sivir E, waste her E after ult on her.”
Urason says “A lot of people dislike the Sivir matchup. Personally, I think it's fairly winnable as long as you dodge her Q's. Again, per usual, if you can survive and then get on top of her, she's dead. It takes practice so take your time to learn your limits!”
R3Veal says “She can poke you with Q and W and It's quite hard to dodge and not to lose creeps. Spell shield is a really good counter for your W. When your jungler wants to gank her wait till her spell shield ends and then cast W. Also her ultimate makes her fast enough to kill you.”
Urason says “Okay so, you can easily kill Sivir in most cases. But the reason she's in the Even category is that if she goes lethality, she can simply Q and W the wave and you can't kill her anymore. Try to hold the wave if you can and look for the kill. She's weak but man, can she clear waves. ”
yers says “Her spellshield can negate one magic attack from you. Slam your keyboard once you stun her. If she negates the stun, you can still do some serious damage with Q-W-AA-Q, and ult once you're 6.”
HyroPyro says “Sivir is a mid-late game wave clear AD Carry. In lane she has almost no kill pressure against Kai'Sa, but can poke her quite effectively using Boomerang Blade (Q) and Ricochet (W). She uses a lot of mana early game, but her Spell Shield (E) restores mana if it blocks an ability. Make sure that you throw your abilities after you see the Spell Shield (E) being used. At level 6, she gains high mobility with her ultimate On The Hunt (R), so make sure that you save your Killer Instinct (R) to chase if needed.”
SaintsBeast says “Sivir will bully you lane. She has the long range Q and her bouncing crossblade will poke you to the point where you want to rage quit so if you can avoid going up against Sivir as Draven, do so. ”
im_zeno says “Only thing that's hard about this matchup is her spell shield. DON'T go for E Q nado when she has it up, wind wall her Q (which is her main ability). Play safe till lvl 3 since she does a lot more dmg than you think.”
m0rfeazz says “Sivir will also poke you with her Q,try to dodge it no matter what,try to make her use her Ult for defense, and abuse it,otherwise she will just play smart with her E(spellshield)and will out damage you”
Trieuloo says “Used to be the hardest matchup for veigar, however with the new addition to everfrost there is a lot of outplay potential to be had. However, until that item you have virtually no kill pressure unless she griefs. ”
Ekezun says “Try to bait her E by waiting a bit after attacking her so she uses it and wastes it completely, the cooldown is quite long and she loses mana if you dont break it, try to get your jungler to gank when she's hardshoving”
KoZee says “Sivir can be very difficult to deal. Her Q is long range poke and she has a spell shield. This gives her time to react when you're charging your arrow. However, I often find Sivir players will use this early while you are charging, and it only is up for a couple seconds, so you can often wait it out. It also has a long cooldown, which gives you a bunch of time to engage and poke her down after she uses it.”
Xayaphelia says “Despite what the online stats say, this matchup feels very skill-based. If you dodge her Q and play around her E properly the matchup is very easy in lane. The poke build will be able to threaten you if her Q lands but other than that the matchup should go to the better player. Also you can still root her through the spellshield if the feathers are not hitting her at the same time. So a varied spacing in your feather position, as well as casting E mid Q will still enable you to get your E through her shield.”
ooftheiii says “Try to wait a split second longer before trading with her, as a lot of Sivir players will turn on their Spell Shield pre-emptively. Sivir players usually stay in lane forever and push waves continuously. Try setting up a gank if she pushes blindly without wards.
kingamazin says “Sivir is a low range adc so poking her down with autos should not be too difficult, but you have to keep in mind that she can still hit you with her q when you go to trade with her or cs. Stand in your minion wave to avoid getting hit by an isolated q, and never throw random w's at her as she can just regain her mana by blocking them with her spell shield. If she goes the lethality sivir build, you need to completely focus on dodging her q's as the deal an insane amount of damage. For that reason, I would recommend buying berserker greaves and a refillable potion on your first back to avoid her harass.”
Bluestrat says “Kai'sa countered Sivir, indem das Spellshield von Sivir nur Teile des Q von Kai'sa blockt.
Sobald wir einen Vorteil in der Lane erzielt haben, ist es uns immer möglich Sivir im 1v1 zu besiegen. ”
Atrickster says “she can 1 shot you after 1 item if your not carefull Im thinking of leathality sivir ofc and she can shove waves super fast and you cant do anything about it. her E can remove your W at 2 points so its impossible to use it on her”
ctm20141 says “Her Spellshield can block your E, but her timing must be almost frame perfect. Give up lane priority vs her pre lv 6, you will NEVER outpush her. At lv 6 go full rambo with your support XD! Dodge the second part of her Q if you can!”
Remmacs1 says “This match up can be bad for Aphelios if Sivir is able to permanently shove you under tower. Look to constantly counter shove your wave and out dps her with chakrams after her poking her out with infernum / calibrum”
McNugglz says “Not really that good in the current meta, not terrible but not good. She will look to shove waves and poke with Q, looking to refresh her mana with E. Try and bait spell shield by walking up to her, Sivir player are pretty spazzy and will use E at the slightest instance of engage. She can kite really well but if you're ahead then it doesn't really matter.”
MilkshakeGuru says “She seems to build Lethality items lately. This means it's possible for her to end up having 2 spell shields. 3 if Morgana is supporting her. You can see why this would be a issue for your W Gold Card.
Shut her down early and you have nothing to worry about. Early game you can bait her spell shield and go back in when your W is off CD since yours is lower.”
boopthesnoot says “Pre-level 6, Sivir is pretty weak, putting her at a greater disadvantage against your level 2 mini power spike. Bait out her spell shield and use your passive + auto attacks to proc root.”
Zammey says “Early game likes to shove last hit under tower and avoid q poke early and out scale saving your e for after her spell shield has worn off is the only major thing you need to keep track up”
Profesor APH. says “her e is annoying but she can only use her e on yourself she cant give it to her support and its pretty easy to take off this sheild by ur 2nd weapon calibrium, severum just keep gravitum cause if she use her r (buff) you just can scare her and run away”
EvoNinja7 says “Although she isn't very meta, she has a spell shield AND has a good amount of poke in the early game. She can 1v1 you easily if she's fed and she can block poke with her spell shield. Try to bully her early to prevent her from getting a lead.”
Scrimm says “Sivir isn't really a threat, but she can be very annoying in lane since she can block your W with her spellshield rather easily. Even if you commit to her with ult, she can trade ults with you to get away, so try to only commit to her when you know both her shield and ult are on cooldown.”
SkittleBtw says “Everyone laughs at Sivir, she's actually an incredibly strong ADC, she's just unplayed because she's boring. If she gets a lead on you, you will really struggle to come back into the game, she can instantly shove waves whenever she wants with Q W.”
Ledeni123 says “Personaly this is easy but this is possible to lose because she have shield, and long range q, you still got poke but Sivir is pusher you gotta out push her. Her ulti isnt a problem sense you can just use e+ trap/or just run and stop her”
jhoijhoi says “Like Miss Fortune, Sivir is often chosen for her utility. Her ultimate, On The Hunt is a massive boost to nearby allied movement, making her a superb tower pusher when coupled with Ricochet that can clear minion waves very fast. Her Boomerang Blade is often underestimated; getting hit once on the cast, and then again on the return can deal heaps of damage to an enemy champion. Lastly, her "bread and butter" ability is Spell Shield; this allows Sivir to mitigate ECA or Volley, so always use ECA after Sivir has popped her Spell Shield.”
Cam1304 says “Although Sivir is very weak right now she should still be able to beat you in lane as you can be very weak early. Saying this she is still beatable in lane but can be difficult. Late game you should beat her most of the time depending on how fed she is. ”
SweatMeALake says “Sivir has more raw damage than you, and has more pushing potential. Her Spell Shield and Ultimate make it rather hard for her to kill. Always keep her spell shield on a mental note as it can easily counter your ultimate. If she uses her ultimate aggressively, and you are forced into a 1v1 situation, you have to be able to land ultimate, or have 5 stacks of Q already charged, other than that avoid any exchanges. ”
SweatMeALake says “Sivir has a decent mid to late game like you do, but has high aoe with her ricochets. Always keep her spell shield cooldown in consideration because if she blocks your bladecaller you may be in trouble, and if you are behind she can constantly bully you. ”
Spection says “RARE An ADC who's pretty irritating to deal with if she knows what she's doing. She has powerful long range poke that hiding in minions will not help you avoid. She can avoid your all in combo with her spell shield, making her exceptionally hard to lock down. Her ultimate can serve as a powerful engage tool but also serves as a powerful escape tool. Ask for a lot of ganks.”
EvoNinja7 says “She is decent Early game, but stay away from your minions. She is squishy and useless when she is not fed, so target her a lot more often. If she is paired up with a Lux, you have basically won the lane over. ”
KXNGLXXVII says “W or dodge her Q. dont stand too close to minions when her ricochet is active and you should be fine. it doesnt matter if she spell shields anything if ur trying to kill her but she can delay your passive stacks.”
snukumz says “Her boomerang hurts, she has a bouncing attack that hurts and out ranges you, and she has a spell shield that blocks your poke and gives her mana.
Sivir has great wave clear to match, or exceed your own.
The good news is your poke has a much lower cooldown than her spell shield, so try to use Q to get her spell shield down, then use your snare and try to kill her.”
SapphireLoL says “Her Q is easily dodgeable and you can out wait her spell shield by auto attacking instead of using abilities. The only threat is her w which is guaranteed to hit you if you are near her and her ult so she can outrun you.”
Alonixlol says “Sivir is probably the most underrated laning phase ADC there is. She has the best waveclear of any ADC at later levels and still really good waveclear earlier on, great poke, decent trades, is okay in all-ins, is relatively safe from being engaged upon by basically any support that isn't Alistar, and is really good at helping her support engage with On The Hunt. Her short range however means that she's easy to poke and is vulnerable to engages that don't rely on CC that she can spell shield.”
Surp1Clone says “Depends on how good the Sivir is if she is good then major threat if she is not that good its even but her Q and E makes her pretty strong into TF so watch out and never underestimate her. ”
xSEASeahawks12 says “I have never found this lane to be particularly difficult. Hop around her Q when she tries to poke, distance yourself from your wave when she uses her W to clear, and wait for her to pop her E early before Rending her. Her only chance of spell-shielding your Rend comes from a hard prediction, since your E has a very fast cast time. Add in the fact that your ult arguably has a bigger impact on your team's success than hers, and you have an ideal situation to succeed.”
Zoodyacc says “Dodge her Q's, avoid staying near minions so that you can avoid getting hit by W of her's. If you have a support with some heavy CC's such as Leona, Thresh or Blitz you might want to use Condem [E] earlier to bait her Spell Shield out. She might be a threat early.”
ZERO Destructo says “If you're up against a good Sivir player, he will probably negate your W with his E. Since it protects her from only one spell, try to land a Q ond her, then use your W to stun her. As far as trade is concerned, you can easily outtrade Sivir. Also your bonus speed from crit can help you run away when she ults. Oh, and give your best to avoid her Q, since it will deal a lot of damage if it hits you two times.”
Eccentricks says “She is Sivirly weak. SEE WHAT I DID?! LMAO!
Anyway, in all seriousness, her spell shield isn't an issue if she blows it early, as she may forget about your E. Even if she remembers it, chase her until it goes away and then shoot. You will get the cheap kill. As for an offensive Sivir, you may have a hard time with Richochet, but there isn't really a good way to dodge it and pick up your CS at the same time.”
EzVeryReal says “Sivir CAN be a very big issue but it depends on her support. Sivir herself isn't too bad considering you can pop her spell shield with every ability. Just be sure to poke her out before you decide to fight.”
Mr. Nyahr says “If you can bait out her shield, she has no defensive abilities to stop you from harassing. Dodge her boomerang both ways, and avoid standing with your minions to avoid her bounce damage. Stay aware of when she has her ultimate, and make use of her poor range. Sivir players love to push, so if she overextends, call for a gank.”
Laverenz says “Sivir has even less range than Vayne, making it easy for you. Make sure to wait with your E, until she has used her spellshield. Your E is the only ability she can spellshield. Just all in level 6”
MewlingRavenPaw says “Dodge her Q and wait out her Spell Shield before rending. It's a straight forward match-up. When it gets later into the game use Blade of the Ruined King to pop her spell shield or rend early if you can land your Q with PTA active. Nuking her down to ~300 hp and a few auto attacks till she dies. ”
corvy says “Her push potential and waveclear will shutdown you getting lvl 2 almost every game.
try and stay up in cs and be carefull of the bouncing blades because of your low range.
getting onto her with your supports is hard due to her shield but you sould look to shut her down if possible.
farming to midgame and playing river fights is important to keep you relevent dont ignore the team for 3 cs if its crashing tower its best to make sure she doesnt get her crit items by picking up free dragons and kills in river”
Eucalyptus says “Somewhat rough to deal with but you have enough tools at your disposal to fuck with her spell shield during your combo and catch her off-guard. You outscale past one item so she can only really goon squad with ult and her team.”
MrDecoy says “sivir's will mainly try to just perma shove the wave into you because they cant really lane as well as xayah so if you can match her wave clear in the early game you should be able to keep up with her during every stage”
IPodPulse says “Spell shield is a fairly big counter to Varus, so try to bait it out by either using hail of blades or getting your support to use one of their abilities. Never try to engage when her spell shield is available.
Her boomerang blade can deal a lot of damage if it hits a single target, try keep your distance and only close the distance when she wastes her boomerang blade.
Her ultimate is both a good disengage and engage tool. Expect it to be used when the enemy jungler ganks, or if the enemy bot lane is losing the fight.”
Righteous Maniac says “Not horrible to fight per se, but the fact that she can ignore laning phase after the first back by pressing 2 buttons hampers you severely. Not to mention she counters many CC supports and your spells. Try and put her behind or get your jungler to gank.”
GORE Klabok says “-just Like Kog'maw, Kalista Can dodge the Sivir skillshot (Q) .Without Her (Q) she Drop at 50% of her Optimal Damage. If you Bait the spellshield before engaging you always win.
-sivir need to build On-hit effect and shes a late game champion.
Unless sivir reach late game and beeing fed, she can't Hypercarry against a late game Kalista.
If sivir by Any Chance can Spellshield Kalista rent (E) all the time, Whish is actually Impossible to predict That Skillshot, So Rent (E) is actually gonna be enought to takedown sivir on first engage.
SlashLion says “Her Q and E can make for a lot of poke damage and means you have to take time to avoid it which can mean losing some cs. Her spellshield can prevent you from rooting her with your W, try to bait it out with Q or have your support throw an ability out. Be aware of her splitpushing, even if Sivir is behind, her splitpush game is very good and can gain her team the advantage due to the extra lane pressure.”
Vortiris says “Bait out her Spell Shield and you'll be fine. Her early game sucks, but don't get cocky. If you can catch up to her when she uses On The Hunt, go in for it, and root her. 1v1ing her should be easy.”
SmoreEater says “Don't be scared about this match-up, even though her kit may seem scary to you, it's pretty easy to avoid getting countered by her. You can bait out her spell shield by waiting for it to go away then throwing a Q, or even looking like you are about to go after the support then immediately Q the Sivir. You will also have to run towards her without staying right next to the minions, or else her bouncing attacks will hit you and do a good amount of damage to you, removing the 70% health damage bonus rune's effect.”
Somoko says “Sivir is one of the highest threat ADCs you'll ever play against. She does everything fast, better and above all can block your Q / stuns. You can't really play around this so try to have your support make an opening for you when they make her waste her spell shield.”
NMFO says “Sivir's spell shield makes your job landing hooks difficult, especially because her blocking them helps her. However, the cooldown is noticeably longer than yours, so you should be able to bully her pretty well. ”
jster131 says “Pretty bad champ imo. She will either play two ways; farm all game, or she will waste all her mana trying to poke you with her q. If she does the latter, be sure to dodge the q and all in her with your support as soon as she runs out of mana. Be careful for her e spell shield, because it will give her mana back.”
Xerxes Is ADC says “will win lane if he manages to poke you down, i recommended doran's shield unless you have a support like soraka/sona that can you. If he has shield up engage with R first then E. ”
xTheUnlimited says “Really good waveclear and late game damage. She gets oom pretty fast, so you can take that to your advantage. You also have a higher auto attack range than her so you can bully her with auto attacks. You should use your mid game powerspike to end the game before she can get into late. ”
xTheUnlimited says “You can outdamage her early / in lane, but the problem with her is, that she can push your lane really hard, well thats what sivir does. Its pretty bad for you since you need an early back to get your Tear and she can prevent you from that. ”
B34STLYG4M3R says “Sivir is another really hard matchup. You lose every all-in until about 4 items in. She is extremely good at farming and clearing waves, so she can shove you under tower, take your tower, and be up 50 cs on you. There really isn't much you can do here.”
qasddsa says “Champion that prefers to play passively during early game and CS to scale. Don't let her CS; have your support zone her and pressure her with Fishbones or all-ins. During late game, you easily outdamage her.”
undeadsoldiers says “Sivir has great poke that does very high damge. You are squishy so taking all that damage won't be fun for you. Generally I'd go for the tankier build against her.
Sivir is reported to be doing great against Miss Fortune (spell shield from E to block her Q, movement speed from R to dodge her R, at least equally good aoe dmg) so maybe play that, she is also easy to play.”
whybother34 says “So supports hate fighting Sivir because of her spellshield. Trundle goes "Time To Troll!" because you can't spellshield a pillar. You slow and displace her, but it doesn't consume her spellshield and give her mana. Let her poke you and get no mana back from her spellshield and call your jungler for a nice gank when she is drained. ”
Robin Banks says “You have the range advantage but sivir outscales you pretty hard. Even lane pre-6 and first back. Just dodge her Q's and rely on your Q poke. Her spell shield CD is very long early ranks so she'll only use it for a CC ability or if shes low HP and needs to block one of your Q's. ”
