[imgext=http://i52.tinypic.com/359lt2g.png]. 11/17/11 UPDATED MASTERIES IN RESPONSE TO MASTERY TREE CHANGES ! Often regarded as weak in Low-ELO, Cassiopeia is quite the opposite. Although not very noob friendly, she can often decimate teams and single handedly carry teams by herself. She has amazing farm and harass capabilities with her spells and just recently she received a free "scout" ability on her Miasma, so if everyone on the other team is MIA you can just Miasma bushes instead of face-checking to your doom! She often excels in a solo lane (preferably mid) and plays the role of the AP carry on a team. Cassiopeia is not as easy to pick up as most champions of the league, but with enough practice you should be able to master her and use her to the most of her potential. As any other champion, she has her pros and cons, below I will list each of them in their respective category: [title][highlight]Pros[/highlight][/title] [.]High Damage output [.]Strong harass capabilities [.]Easy and efficient farming potential [.]Pretty good mana management [.]Strong teamfight presence [.]Strong AoE spells [.]Decent Crowd Control abilities [title][highlight]Cons[/highlight][/title] [.]Very Squishy/Fragile [.]Skill-shot oriented champion [.]Reliant on poison for maximum damage output [.][imgsmall=skills/cassiopeia/r.png][highlight]Petrifying Gaze[/highlight]: Gimmicky/Situational-based ultimate Just incase any of you are wondering, Cassiopeia is DEFINITELY viable in both organized 5v5 play and in solo queue ranked. If you learned anything from this guide or improved your gameplay with Cassiopeia, please LIKE this guide! :D

Its not that great quality-wise but at least its something ! [own3d]http://www.own3d.tv/video/172689/Cassiopeia_Video_Commentary[/own3d]

[imgext=http://i56.tinypic.com/rwrslf.png] [title]Marks[/title] 9x [highlight]Greater Mark of Insight[/highlight]: +0.95 magic penetration [title]Seals[/title] 9x [highlight]Greater Seal of Clarity[/highlight]: +0.65 mana regen /per 5 sec. per level (+1.17 at champion level 18) [title]Glyphs[/title] 9x [highlight]Greater Glyph of Force[/highlight]: +0.17 ability power per level (+3.06 at champion level 18) [title]Quintessences[/title] 3x [highlight]Greater Quintessence of Potency[/highlight]: +4.95 ability power [title]Rune Explanation[/title] This is the ideal rune book for almost every AP caster/carry in the game. The [highlight]marks[/highlight] provide a nice boost in damage throughout the game. The [highlight]seals[/highlight] provide good mana regen which allows you to stay and farm your lane longer and keeps you from recalling every 5 minutes to regen your mana. The [highlight]glyphs[/highlight] boost your ability power significantly into late game. The [highlight]quintessences[/highlight] boost up your damage early on which enables you to dominate during laning phase.

[title][img=skills/cassiopeia/p.png] Passive: Deadly Cadence[/title] [number]After casting a spell any subsequent spellcasts will cost 10% less for 5 seconds. This ability stacks up to 5 times.[/number] [title]Explanation:[/title] This passive really synergizes with her playstyle. Most of the time you can safely spam your harass abilities with out worrying TOO much about mana problems. [title][img=skills/cassiopeia/q.png] Q: Noxious Blast[/title] [number]Cassiopeia blasts an area with a delayed high damage poison dealing 75 / 115 / 155 / 195 / 235 (+90% Ability Power) over 3 seconds, granting her 15% / 17.5% / 20% / 22.5% / 25% increased Movement Speed if she hits a champion for 3 seconds.[/number] [title]Explanation:[/title] This is Cassiopeia's bread and butter skill. Noxious Blast enables you to safely poke and harass your lane opponent. It deals tons of Damage-over-time and is really useful when farming creep waves. [title][img=skills/cassiopeia/w.png] W: Miasma[/title] [number]Cassiopeia releases a growing cloud of poison that last for 7 seconds. Any enemy that passes through it is poisoned for 2 seconds, dealing 25 / 35 / 45 / 55 / 65 (+15% Ability Power) each second and slowing them by 15% / 20% / 25% / 30% / 35 % contious exposure renews this poison.[/number] [title]Explanation:[/title] Miasma brings a lot of utility to Cassiopeia's kit and can be used to farm creeps efficiently, chase, and kite enemies around to ultimately bring them to their demise. NOTE: After the recent patch Miasma now grants vision so can scout bushes and areas of interest by laying it down. [title][img=skills/cassiopeia/e.png] E: Twin Fang[/title] [number]Cassiopeia deals 60 / 95 / 130 / 165 / 200 (+55% Ability Power) magic damage to her target. If the target is poisoned then Twin Fang's cooldown is reduced to .5 seconds..[/number] [title]Explanation:[/title] This skill has to be the funnest thing about Cassiopeia. Once you poison your enemy with either Q or W, this skill's cooldown is reduced SIGNIFICANTLY. You can think of it as Urgot's [imgsmall=skills/urgot/q.png] because once you poison an enemy you can proceed to spamming the hell out of Twin Fang. NOTE: For experienced players, it is recommended that you smart-cast Twin Fang to save alot of time when spamming it. [title][img=skills/cassiopeia/r.png] R: Petrifying Gaze[/title] [number]Petrifying GazeCassiopeia deals 200/325/450 (+60% Ability Power) magic damage to all enemies in front of her. Enemies facing her are stunned for 2 seconds while enemies facing away are slowed by 60%. [/number] [title]Explanation:[/title] Cassiopeia's Gaze can be very situational but if used correctly it can demolish the other team. It does a decent amount of damage in an AoE Cone. Always try to land your ultimate when multiple champions are facing you to maximize her ultimate's capability.

[title][highlight][img=skills/cassiopeia/q.png][Q]Noxious Blast[/highlight][/title] [imgext=http://i54.tinypic.com/34xrxg0.png] [title][highlight][img=skills/cassiopeia/w.png][W]Miasma[/highlight][/title] [imgext=http://i54.tinypic.com/w6p9qc.png] [title][highlight][img=skills/cassiopeia/e.png][E]Twin Fang[/highlight][/title] [imgext=http://i56.tinypic.com/2w3ng8y.png] [title][highlight][img=skills/cassiopeia/r.png][R]Petrifying Gaze[/highlight][/title] [imgext=http://i56.tinypic.com/8z2wrd.png]

During the laning phase try to last hit as much as possible while also harassing the enemy with Q everytime he goes in for a last hit. If you happen to land a Q on the enemy you can proceed to hit a few E's on him while the poison effect persists. In most matchups you can safely play aggressive and ultimately dominate your lane by denying the enemy last hits and experience.

During mid-game it is important that you pull off some ganks on the other lanes while your lane is pushed to the enemy tower. If you see the opposing jungler ganking top or dying, you can take advantage of that by taking dragon quickly. If none of these instances occur, then you can proceed to farming your lane with Miasma and Noxious Blast.

During the late stages of the game usually a lot of teamfights will erupt. Make sure to set down your Miasma in places where the enemy is likely to clump up. If the other team clumps up together you can take advantage of that by getting them all with your ultimate. Pulling off a good ultimate on multiple targets can give you a huge advantage and ultimately win an entire teamfight. Remember, positioning is key in teamfights so you always want to be positioned in a fashion that you can safely deal damage without the worry of dying. If your tanks happen to die you should be able to kite your enemies and either kill them or run away scotch-free.

[highlight][title]You should be able to make your opponents say.... [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ejxR0zGaflg[/youtube][/title][/highlight]

Cassiopeia is a VERY strong AP carry but unlike most of the other casters in the league, she requires a little bit more dedication and skill. You have to be patient when mastering her because she has quite a large learning curve and isn't a champion you can usually pick up and own with right off the bat. Once you master Cassiopeia, you should be able to easily dominate during the laning phase, complete objectives during mid game, and aid your team tremendously in teamfights. She really shines in all phases of the game and should be able to carry even the heaviest teams in solo queue in all ELO brackets (that includes ELO Heaven!....I mean hell..... XD) [title][highlight]Again, if you learned anything from this guide or if your gameplay improved after reading this guide...or if you're just a nice guy, please upvote my guide! I'd really appreciate it. Oh and if you're wondering if this guide was written by a somewhat decent/High-ELO player.... [imgext=http://i.imgur.com/dj3QI.jpg]
