Playing As LissandraSquare Lissandra
  • You can instantly use your ultimate ultimate on yourself by pressing the self cast key and the ultimate key at once (Alt + R by default)
  • Casting Glacial Path Glacial Path and then running in the opposite direction will leave your enemies uncertain which way you'll actually go.
  • Lissandra's abilities are shorter range than those of many mages. As a result, buying items that offer both ability power and defense, like Zhonya's Hourglass Zhonya's Hourglass and Banshee's Veil Banshee's Veil, can be a great choice to help her both survive and deal damage.
Playing Against LissandraSquare Lissandra
  • The best way to stop Lissandra from moving using her Glacial Path Glacial Path is to immobilize her before she reactivates it.
  • Lissandra's Ring of Frost Ring of Frost has a long cooldown at early ranks; engage her while it's on cooldown.
  • Lissandra's Ice Shard Ice Shard only slows the first unit it hits. Approach Lissandra from behind your team's minions to avoid being slowed.


Ability Usage


  • Since W does not interrupt Lissandra's movement, it's the best skill to start a combo.
  • Land your E then use flash to avoid and then re cast for a safe blink.
  • You can buy a Hextech item for a combo boost, like GLP or Protobelt.
  • For a really gap close enemy on top lane, you can focus on W and the use your Q for last hits.
Rune Usage
Item Usage
  • Avoid choosing any assassin such as Zed or Fizz against Lissandra. She can mostly outpoke them with Ice Shard & Negate their burst combo with Frozen Tomb.
  • Choosing a DPS based Mage like Cassiopeia & a poke based Mage like Lux & Syndra means trouble for her.
  • In teamfights, Lissandra can combo Zhonya's Hourglass & Frozen Tomb against your team, it could give you lesser chance of winning a teamfight against a team with Lissandra. Watch out if Lissandra has Zhonya's as she can combo it with her ult against your team.
  • Kassadin Kassadin is considered the best counter to LissandraSquare Lissandra because his mid-late game mobility thanks to Riftwalk means Lissandra would have a lesser chance of catching him but be wary that Kassadin has a weak early game so outpoking Kass early can negate his late game potential.
