[title]This is my First League of Legends Guide :)[/title] Cassiopeia is a very powerful champion and if used properly can destroy the entire enemy team. She is very strong 1 versus 1. Can zone and farm like a boss. You only need to take care with CC's [imgsmall=items/banshees-veil.png] should be good. [highlight]Pro:[/highlight] [.]High Burst Damage [.]Strong AOE Spells [.]Great TeamFight Presence [.]Strong Harass and Zoning [.]High Farm Potential [highlight]Cons:[/highlight] [.]Very Squishy [.]No Escape Tools [.]Hard to Play [.]Situational Ultimate

[imgext=http://img842.imageshack.us/img842/3008/cassiorunes.jpg] [highlight]Marks:[/highlight] 9x Greater Mark of Insight: +0.95 magic penetration [highlight]Seals:[/highlight] 9x Greater Seal of Replenishment: +0.41 mana regen / 5 [highlight]Glyphs:[/highlight] 9x Greater Glyph of Force: +0.17 ability power per level (+3.06 at champion level 18) [highlight]Quintessences:[/highlight] 3x Greater Quintessence of Swiftness: +1.5% movement speed [title]Explanation[/title] This is a diferent Ap carry rune page, i usually use movement speed for cassio because of [imgsmall=skills/cassiopeia/q.png] passive (it gives 25% mov speed for 3 seconds if you hit a champion. [highlight]Marks[/highlight] provide a nice magic pen throughout the game. [highlight]Seals[/highlight] it gives a nice mana regen, you need this runes a lot. [highlight]Glyphs[/highlight] boost your ability power significantly into late game. [highlight]Quintessences[/highlight] it scales so good with [imgsmall=skills/cassiopeia/q.png], it will be nice to chase down enemies.Don't mind the halloween runes,use the regular quintessences if possible :]

[imgext=http://img401.imageshack.us/img401/44/cassiomateries.jpg] [title]Explanation:[/title] This Masteries and Spells are mostly the core for all AP Carry. [imgsmall=summoners/flash.png] You need this Spell. Cassiopeia does not have any scape tool, so you need it. [imgsmall=summoners/ignite.png] Very nice to finish your enemies. [highlight]Another Good Option:[/highlight] [imgsmall=summoners/teleport.png] This Spell can help your lane phase.I do recommend if you like to gank your friend's lane. [highlight]Bad Option:[/highlight] [imgsmall=summoners/clarity.png] Since you have runes and masteries for mana regen your will not need this spell, you can use [imgsmall=summoners/ignite.png] instead of it.

[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] One of my favorite passive. Since Cassiopeia uses too much skills to farm and harass she really needs this passive. You just need to remember to start your combo with [imgsmall=skills/cassiopeia/q.png] then you can use [imgsmall=skills/cassiopeia/e.png] [imgsmall=skills/cassiopeia/w.png][imgsmall=skills/cassiopeia/r.png] if you do this your will maximize [imgsmall=skills/cassiopeia/p.png] [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] For me this is the Cassiopeia main skill.Noxious Blast can be used safely bacause of her range.With her high ap ratio you will be able to harass and farm with tons of damage. Remember that if your hit a champion you will get some increased Movement Speed for 3 seconds, it is amazing with your Movement Speeds Runes. [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, you can slow enemies, farm and use in bushes to grant vision. [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] Twin Fang is your main source of damage. If your target is poisoned Twin Fang's cooldown is reduced to 0.5 sec and you can deal TONS of damage with it. You will be able to use [imgsmall=skills/cassiopeia/e.png][imgsmall=skills/cassiopeia/e.png] before the poison run out. Early/Mid/Late game this spell gives lots of damage. [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] This ultimate is very powerful, don't be afraid to use it, just try to get 2+ targets.Don't use it to start fight, only if its a nice engage. Always use [imgsmall=skills/cassiopeia/q.png][imgsmall=skills/cassiopeia/w.png] before using [imgsmall=skills/cassiopeia/r.png] to max your combo. If someone is chasing you and you have ult, just turn around and drop your ult in his head.Your combo is like Leblanc's combo,it can destroy the target very fast.

If your Team has a support ask him to use [img=summoners/clairvoyance.png] it in the enemy nexus. After seeing their solo mid starting items do you choice between [img=items/dorans-ring.png] and [img=items/boots-of-speed.png][img=items/health-potion3.png]. I do not particularly like starting with [img=items/dorans-ring.png] since Cassio is very squishy and dont have any heal spell. Boots and 3 pots is a smart choice. Early game focus on FARMING! Try to farm as much as you can, of course you can try to poke your opponent but do not make it your main objective.

Cassiopeia's Mid Game is very strong, with +- 80 Ability Power you can kill an creep wave very fast if you are focusing on [img=skills/cassiopeia/q.png]. Again you need to FARM and FARM. Ganking another lanes would be good since you have a spell that give slow [imgsmall=skills/cassiopeia/w.png] and a spell that grant you some move speed [imgsmall=skills/cassiopeia/q.png]. Talk to your Jungle for a Double Gank. Don't forget to buy [img=items/sight-ward.png] to protect you and your jungle. I will post a link that i find very useful about wards : http://na.leagueoflegends.com/board/showthread.php?t=237514 You should know the better spot to place a ward.

If you did good farming EARLY / MID game, and ganked some times. You should be very Fed and with a lot of good items. Late game you need some of this items : [img=items/rod-of-ages.png][img=items/will-of-the-ancients.png][img=items/rabadons-deathcap.png][img=items/sorcerers-shoes.png][img=items/void-staff.png] and a [img=items/banshees-veil.png] if possible. With this items you will be able to finish their team easy. [.]Don't engage Team Fights [.]Always be behind your Tanks [.]Walk with your Team every moment [.]Remember to place a ward on BARON

I hope you guys learned some things about Cassio! This guide is not over, i will update it when possible. Please comment, i want to know what you think about this guide. Thats my first guide so if you have something to say to improve this guide just tell me. Thanks for reading and good lucky! ~Truncheon
