Guide to Countering Diana as Yorick

Tips for Playing as Yorick against Diana

You can send the Maiden down a lane alone, be careful though, as she represents a large portion of your combat power.

You do not need to cast Awakening to regain the ability to cast Last Rites.

The Maiden will attempt to assist you in a fight, so choose your targets well.

Advice to Win Against Diana

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

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.

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