Guide to Countering Sivir as Diana

Tips for Playing as Diana against Sivir

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 Sivir

Boomerang Blade costs a lot of mana to cast, so dodging it sets Sivir back. If it hits you on the way out, avoid its path on the way back.

Sivir is a powerful pushing champion, so leaving her unattended in a lane for too long will often result in your turrets being destroyed.

When laning against Sivir, it is possible to throw off the timing of her Spell Shield by faking an advance, then backing off.
