Introduction

Skulking around the jungle is a dangerous task when there’s an enemy Elise. You never know when you’ll be caught out by a web flung from a bush, or when you’ll die from a spider, chasing you down. Even if you fight her, she’ll escape by leaping to the jungle monsters. She’s got so many abilities it’s difficult for beginners to understand what’s going on, and she has so much strength early game that she can make your jungle a nightmare.

Elise is an high-pressure jungler who has a very strong early game. She has high burst at early levels and strong CC with her web. She falls off late game, but she can snowball her team easily if she catches you out early.

In order to stop her from snowballing the game like the Goddess she’s supposed to be, you need to know what to do to avoid her and defeat her. In this guide, I’ll be giving you tips on how to squash this spider.

Our Top Counter Tips For Elise


Elise has very strong counter ganks at early levels, because her stun can turn around fights easily. Be careful that you know where she is when you’re ganking a lane.

If Elise transforms into one form, there’s a cooldown before she can transform into the other form. So if she turns into spider form, you know she won’t be able to use her stun for a few seconds.

Elise can block spells with her spiderlings.

At early levels, Elise has good amounts of burst because she can turn into her spider form and have twice the amount of spells as you. Be careful about counterjungling her.

Elise is actually very squishy, and so most Elise players generally go a few AP bruiser items then transition into tank builds.

Elise falls off a lot late game, as her primary utility is her cocoon.

Champions That Counter Elise


Olaf

Olaf

Early game she can’t duel you, because your axes do a ton of damage and you have sustain with your W. Lategame, you can just brush off the effects of her stun and run her down. She has no way to get away. Try to counter jungle her and if you find her low, kill her. Be sure to cast your ax first, so that you clear her spiderlings and don’t misclick your E on them.

Olaf

Wukong

You can dodge her stun by hitting W just as she starts to cast. Your clone will be stunned. In addition, dashing to her with your E destroys her spiderlings. You outdamage her early game, but she can win duels if she lands the stun. You’ll also have more of a midgame impact.

Kindred

Evelynn

If you’re on blue side, you can do an early cheese on Elise where you get red buff first, then go straight toher blue. If you run Ignite it works even better. Just gank and counterjungle constantly. She’ll be low in the jungle when she farms, so that’s your opportunity to get kills.
