Diana Rune Choices

Core Items

Hextech Rocketbelt

3200 Gold

Zhonya's Hourglass

2600 Gold


Hextech Rocketbelt is a great gap-closer for assassins, and allows for waveclear in the early game.

With her kit being based around burst damage, the ideal combo is Crescent Strike > Lunar Rush > Zhonya's Hourglass. This adds survivability so you don't immediately get locked down.

Other good items include Nashor's Tooth, Shadowflame, and Morellonomicon.

Starting Item & Boots

Refillable Potion

150 Gold


350 Gold

Sorcerer's Shoes

1100 Gold

Skill Order

While your choices may differ according to how the game progresses, the typical Diana skill priority is:

R > Q > W > E

Summoner Spells

These are the summoner spells most typically taken by Diana in this role. Naturally, this may change depending on match-ups.

Flash - League of Legends
Smite - League of Legends


Diana has a highly aggressive kit, and is fantastic up close. She has great jungle clear following a buff, and once your ultimate is unlocked at level 6, potent ganks.

  • Level 1 - Take Q - Crescent Strike, to start your camps.
  • Level 2 - Take W - Pale Cascade, for faster jungle clear.
  • First Back - Work towards your Rocketbelt. 

Tips & Tricks

  • If you're quick enough, you can use Lunar Rush before the Crescent Strike lands on your opponent and still benefit from the Lunar Rush reset.
  • Given it can travel over walls, you can use Crescent Strike on jungle monsters and follow up with Lunar Rush to escape. 
  • Pale Cascade reapplies the shield if all three spheres explode. You can use this to farm minions without taking damage. 
  • Crescent Strike works similarly to Orianna's Shockwave, in that you can Flash during the animation. Use this to surprise enemies.
