Guide to Countering Rek'Sai as Diana

Tips for Playing as Diana against Rek'Sai

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 Rek'Sai

Rek'Sai's Furious Bite gains damage as she builds Fury. Be very careful around her when her Fury is full.

When Rek'Sai is near, she can see the position of you and your allies, but only if you're moving.

If you see one of Rek'Sai's tunnels, briefly stand on one of the entrances to destroy it.
