Tips

Playing As Cassiopeia Cassiopeia
  • Use Twin Fang.png Twin Fang on poisoned stationary targets like monsters and units stunned by her Petrifying Gaze.png Petrifying Gaze for maximum damage.
  • Lead your enemy when targeting with Noxious Blast.png Noxious Blast to ensure the hit.
Playing Against Cassiopeia Cassiopeia
  • Be wary of Cassiopeia's damage potential with Twin Fang.png Twin Fang when she has you poisoned.
  • Turn away from Cassiopeia when she is casting Petrifying Gaze.png Petrifying Gaze to be slowed instead of stunned.

Tricks

Ability Usage
  • Cassiopeia Cassiopeia is a great harasser in all stages of the game. All three of her basic abilities, especially Noxious Blast.png Noxious Blast, can be used constantly in lane to zone, capable of dealing huge amounts of damage over time at a safe distance.
  • Noxious Blast.png Noxious Blast has a slight delay; lead your enemy when targeting with Noxious Blast.png Noxious Blast to ensure the hit, or use it on them when they will have to stand still to last-hit.
  • Using Noxious Blast.png Noxious Blast in the brush does not reveal Cassiopeia Cassiopeia, so when in the side lanes, use the brush to your advantage to harass with little to no retaliation from enemy minions.
  • When chasing/fleeing, be sure to use your Noxious Blast.png Noxious Blast on an enemy champion to speed yourself up, and Miasma.png Miasma to slow them down.
  • Using Miasma.png Miasma in the middle of the lane when enemy minions are coming will slow them and deal some damage giving advantage to your minions, this tactic is best used in pushes as intentionally pushing your lane during the laning phase opens yourself up to ganks.
  • Noxious Blast.png Noxious Blast can also be used to check brush, as it gives you a movement speed bonus (and a buff icon) if an enemy is hit. If you cast it in a brush, and notice the buff icon, you know that an enemy is there.
  • Twin Fang.png Twin Fang becomes extremely powerful if the target is poisoned, allowing you to deal out large amounts of damage with its extremely low cooldown.
    • It is very highly recommended to smart cast Twin Fang.png Twin Fang, as it will make it much easier to land the maximum amount of Twin Fang.png Twin Fang allowed by the duration of your poison effects.
    • If the situation is favorable, try to cast Twin Fang.png Twin Fang while directly on top of your target, as Twin Fang.png Twin Fang's extra damage begins when the poisoned target is hit and not on spellcast.
    • Due to Twin Fang.png Twin Fang has extremely low cooldown and high damage, don't be afraid to target durable melee champions if necessary. Unlike many other mages that rely on burst damage, Cassiopeia Cassiopeia and her Twin Fang.png Twin Fang can realistically cut through tough enemies with time, accuracy, and enough mana.
  • Try to use Petrifying Gaze.png Petrifying Gaze offensively, and usually against more than one target. That said, it can also be used when being ganked to escape enemies.
    • It is, however, safest to use it when a teamfight has happened. The enemy will be less likely to manage to turn around with their attention split amongst five champions - and more likely to all be facing you since that is largely required to fight your team.
  • Using Petrifying Gaze.png Petrifying Gaze followed by Miasma.png Miasma, Noxious Blast.png Noxious Blast and Twin Fang.png Twin Fang can turn most 1v1 fights and mid game turret dives in your favor.
  • Petrifying Gaze.png Petrifying Gaze also allows Cassiopeia Cassiopeia to be a very strong anti-ganker. Simply casting it when your lane opponent and the enemy ganker are in range, then bursting down the weaker one with your combo can turn the 2v1 into a 1v1. This tactic is the only effective when your Petrifying Gaze.png Petrifying Gaze stuns both targets.
