Guide to Countering Pyke as Elise

Tips for Playing as Elise against Pyke

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 Pyke

Pyke regenerates a significant amount of damage he has taken from enemy champions, but only when you can't see him!

When Pyke is hidden nearby in his Ghostwater Dive, sharks will circle underneath your feet.

Try not to stand near low health allies. If Pyke executes them using Death From Below, you might be next on the list.
