Guide to Countering Kennen as Sivir

Tips for Playing as Sivir against Kennen

Try saving Spell Shield for enemy abilities that can disable you such as stuns and roots.

Ricochet resets Sivir's basic attack timer on activation, so activating this immediately after landing a normal basic attack will maximize damage output.

Sivir's Boomerang Blade returns to her after reaching the max range, so you can shift position to hit enemies who would otherwise have evaded it.

Advice to Win Against Kennen

Kennen is flimsy by nature - turn and attack him if he gets careless with Lightning Rush.

Consider playing a bit more cautiously around Kennen when you have a Mark of the Storm debuff. If he hits you with 3 Marks of the Storm, you will get stunned.
