Guide to Countering Garen as Elise

Tips for Playing as Elise against Garen

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 Garen

Stack armor items to lower the large amount of physical damage that Garen deals out.

Be careful about attacking Garen in brush. It often will lead to taking full damage from Judgment.

Try to run away from Garen as your health gets lower, as he can execute you quickly with Demacian Justice.

Judgment deals maximum damage when only hitting a single target. If getting out of its radius isn't possible, move through allied minions to reduce damage taken.
