Taliyah has decent range and good jungle clear, speeding through without losing too much health. If you're quick enough, you can even initiate an early gank on the botside. Your main role on Taliyah is to poke, separate weak enemies with your wall, and generally try to get your lanes ahead. You can even play as a kind of utility assassin.

  • Level 1 - Take Q - Threaded Volley, for the fast jungle clear.
  • Level 2 - Take E - Unraveled Earth, for the slow.
  • First Back - Start building towards your Luden's Tempest, or pick up boots.

Tips & Tricks

  • For optimal use of Threaded Volley, keep moving and don't hesitate on the worked ground.
  • On Worked Ground, Threaded Volley costs only 1 Mana.
  • You can continue to use auto-attacks during Threaded Volley, for more DPS.
  • Seismic Shove can be devastating in a teamfight, providing enemies are thrown into Unraveled Earth. 
  • Any dash can trigger Unraveled Earth.
  • Weaver's Wall can be interrupted by barriers such as those of Yasuo and Braum.
