Guide to Countering Diana as Elise

Tips for Playing as Elise against Diana

Elise's Spider Form and Spider Form abilities do not cost mana and can be prioritized when you are trying to conserve mana.

When in Spider Form, Spiderlings will attack the target that Elise uses Venomous Bite on.

Spider Form is most effective at finishing off enemies with low health; Human Form's Neurotoxin does more damage to healthy foes.

Advice to Win Against Diana

Pale Cascade orbs only last a few seconds. Avoid Diana and engage her after the shield dissipates.

Diana can play very aggressively if she uses Lunar Rush without Moonlight, but you can punish her by slowing or stunning her when she has no way to get back into position.

Dodge Crescent Strike, or move to safety if you are affected by Moonlight.
