Guide to Countering Rek'Sai as Elise

Tips for Playing as Elise against Rek'Sai

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.

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.
