Counter Taliyah: How To Counter Pick Taliyah

Taliyah, if you ever meet her on Summoner’s Rift, is a mid lane mage. Summoners sometimes use her bot lane as a support champion (cough) but those instances are rare. In this article, we discuss how to effectively counter Taliyah.

Tips For Playing Against Taliyah

  • When Taliyah casts Unraveled Earth in the lane, be on the lookout for Seismic Shove. If she throws you into her minefield, the throws and stones will break your bones.
  • Taliyah’s Threaded Volley is locked into a direction. If she’s throwing rocks at you, dodge to the side!
  • Taliyah’s spells are powerful but highly telegraphed. Stay alert and mobile to dodge her attacks.
  • Watch out when you see Taliyah missing from her lane. Her gank potential is very good and may result in you dying in a 2v3 or 2v4 fight.
    • Remember to ping or say “MIA”, when Taliyah leaves your lane. Treat her as Twisted Fate.
  • Force Taliyah to stand on worked ground to greatly reduce her damage. It will also reduce her mediocre push capabilities, possibly resulting in loss of creep kills in your favor.
  • Taliyah doesn’t do as much damage as other mages. Focus an enemy ADC over her, unless she is really fed and well-equipped with her items.
  • When in champion select, remember that Taliyah doesn’t have to play mid like i.e. Veigar, as she can also play top or support. Take this into consideration when countering her.
