Guide to Countering Kayn as Diana

Tips for Playing as Diana against Kayn

Consider when to cast Lunar Rush without Moonlight and when to wait for another Crescent Strike.

Landing Crescent Strike is critically important, but don't be afraid to miss. The cooldown is short and the mana cost is low.

Use Moonfall and Lunar Rush to stay on targets and activate Moonsilver Blade for extra damage.

Advice to Win Against Kayn

When Kayn is in terrain near you, you will get a visual warning on the edge of the terrain he's in.

Umbral Trespass requires Kayn to damage a target first. Try to dodge Blade's Reach to deny him a long range cast of Umbral Trespass.

Damage Kayn while he's in Shadow Step to shorten its duration, or apply hard crowd control (stun, charm, knockup, etc) to end Shadow Step immediately.
