There’s nothing quite like the feeling of being cheesed in League. You’re moving up to your lane when suddenly someone jumps out of a bush and assassinates you. You’re taking your very first buff when the enemy Blitz takes it and spams his laugh emote. There’s a certain type of rage that builds up, when you realize that the cheese would’ve been very easy to avoid if you had only thought about it. Evelynn is like the ultimate cheese champion.She’s only useful if she gets ahead, but if she cheeses you, it’s impossible to do anything as she constantly take saway any chance you get. Shaco will cheese and become a split pusher. Evelynn will cheese and become a nightmare. You’re constantly on the lookout for ganks, but you can’t do anything because you can only buy one pink ward. As you start to engage with your enemy laner, Evelynn pops out and assassinates you, slowly.
Evelynn is a high-pressure jungler who has a very strong early game. Due to her passive, she has very strong ganks,but needs to snowball in order to have an impact on the game.
In order to stop her from snowballing, you need to know what she does. In this guide, I’ll be teaching you to exploit her weaknesses until she goes from the Widowmaker to just a woman.
Passive – Shadow Walk
When out of combat, Evelynn becomes invisible. Entering combat or using an ability will end stealth. Going near enemy champions will allow them to see her.
Q – Hate Spike
Evelynn projects a line of spikes, dealing magic damage to enemies struck. This ability has a 1.5 second cooldown..
W – Dark Frenzy
Evelynn removes all slows and moves faster for a few seconds. The cooldown on this ability is reset if she kills an enemy.
E – Ravage
Evelynn slashes her target twice, dealing physical damage and applying on-hit effects. She also gains bonus attack speed for a few seconds.
R – Agony's Embrace
Evelynn impales all enemies in an area, dealing magic damage and slowing. For each enemy champion hit, she gains a health shield.
Evelynn is a much better ganker than she is a duelist, because she’s quite squishy. She also farms slowly, so choosing a champion who can counterjungle her is a good idea.
Buy Pink Wards and place them in the river and in Tribrushes. Your side lanes are going to be ganked.
Some Evelynn’s go Ignite instead of Flash. In case they do this, be careful at your first buff, as they’ll probably try to cheese you there.
Eve needs to stand next to her target for a few seconds in order to kill them. She’s a very slow assassin, who’s better at running people down than she is at bursting them. Therefore, she has to be fed, or else she’s an easy target.
Don’t clump up in late game fights. Her shield is the only way that she can initiate and survive in fights.
Eve is very susceptible to counter ganks. If you see her going bot, you go as well and you can turn around the fight.
You can duel her really well, although your early ganks are a little weak. Remember that she can cleanse your slow, so save it until she’s cast her W. Build Warrior’s and the AD item of your choice then transition to a tank build.
She just can’t outduel your drain. She doesn’t have the CC to stop it or the damage to out damage your sustain. In addition, you’re way more useful in team fights. Just farm until 6, hope that she isn’t ganking too much, and you should win all fights from then on. Consider building Abyssal early.
You can dodge a lot of her damage with your E and you can do way more damage. Your stun really destroysher in fights. If you counter jungle her often, she will be behind, and therefore useless.
Evelynn does mainly magic damage, but there are AD builds for Evelynn as well. Check what her first buy is, and build accordingly. If she goes AD, then she’ll probably buy on hit effect items. Consider Frozen Heart, as that slows her attack speed down.
