Tips

Playing As Evelynn Evelynn
  • While Shadow Walk.png stealthed, pay attention to when you are (near) being detected by enemy champions. This is identified by the glowing yellow and red eyes over nearby enemy champions.
  • Try to use Dark Frenzy.png Dark Frenzy after your opponents have used up their slows.
  • Evelynn can be built focusing on either Attack Damage which provides more sustained damage or Ability Power which provides more burst damage. A balance of both may be ideal.
Playing Against Evelynn Evelynn
  • Purchasing Vision Ward item.png Vision Wards can help you detect Evelynn's location in order to prepare for her Shadow Walk.png ambushes.
  • Evelynn is vulnerable to slows once she uses her Movement Speed boost, Dark Frenzy.png Dark Frenzy.
  • If you suspect Evelynn is about to Shadow Walk.png ambush one of your teammates, let them know by pinging the minimap and typing in chat.

Tricks

Ability Usage
  • Evelynn Evelynn is an effective roamer. Use Shadow Walk.png Shadow Walk to scout out and surprise enemy champions that overextend and possibly get a kill. This is most effective early game. By roaming, this allows your solo laner to farm minions while keeping the enemy solo back and losing them gold and experience.
  • Evelynn Evelynn can excel at pushing a lane and jungling by spamming Hate Spike.png Hate Spike. Try to stand so it hits many creeps.
  • Level up Ravage.png Ravage first for an AD/On-hit build and Hate Spike.png Hate Spike first for an AP build.
  • Use Ravage.png Ravage on a nearby minion when attacking a tower.
  • Evelynn Evelynn is a good partner for Maokai Maokai or Kassadin Kassadin. Her Hate Spike.png Hate Spike will help to proc Maokai Maokai's Sap Magic.png Sap Magic and Kassadin Kassadin's Force Pulse.png Force Pulse. On the other hand, she is ineffective against either of them, for the same reason.
  • Your Shadow Walk.png Shadow Walk can be easily neutralized by Vision Ward item.png Vision Wards early game. Don't be too hasty in attacking early. Take your time, scope out the battle before joining and use your element of surprise to your advantage.
  • Use Dark Frenzy.png Dark Frenzy to return to and move among lanes faster. Be careful using this before a gank in case you need it to escape.
  • With a maxed out Ravage.png Ravage attack speed boost, you need a 118.8% boost to reach the cap.
  • Evelynn Evelynn is a great scout as she can walk past Warding Totem item.jpg Warding Totems without being seen. Be wary of Vision Ward item.png Vision Wards, as their true sight can detect stealthed units, however they can be seen so you can find them, destroy them and come back shortly for a gank.
  • Since Agony&#039;s Embrace.png Agony's Embrace is based on the current health of the enemy and has no minimum damage, avoid using it on low-health opponents. The damage will be incredibly low.
    • If you are going to use Agony&#039;s Embrace.png Agony's Embrace, always initiate with it, so you do the most damage, before your opponent's health is down.
Item Usage
  • Evelynn Evelynn's Shadow Walk.png Shadow Walk takes care of most of your mana issues.
    • If you are saving your mana for harassing only, you might not even need to build mana items at all, however, the low CD and low mana cost of Hate Spike.png Hate Spike makes it extremely useful for farming.
    • An early Sapphire Crystal item.png Sapphire Crystal and its build path (especially Sheen item.png Sheen items) will drastically improve Shadow Walk.png Shadow Walk's passive mana regen as it scales with her maximum mana. However, an early Sapphire Crystal item.png Sapphire Crystal can leave your damage low until you buy Sheen item.png Sheen, which is somewhat expensive early on.
  • The low cooldown on Hate Spike.png Hate Spike allows Evelynn to make full use of the following:
  • With both AD and AP, her AS buff can effectively mix and match any offensive item. See what defenses the enemy is building so you can adapt within your build. For instance, if they build Thornmail item.png Thornmail when you're playing Hybrid, build Wit&#039;s End item.png Wit's End instead of Trinity Force item.png Trinity Force. If they all build magic resist then prioritize penetration over raw AP. If they build health, then Liandry&#039;s Torment item.png Liandry's Torment will combat their thickness. Items with sustain such as Hextech Gunblade item.png Hextech Gunblade or Blade of the Ruined King item.png Blade of the Ruined King can theoretically allow you to fight tanks indefinitely.
    • (The Black Cleaver item.png The Black Cleaver/Trinity Force item.png Trinity Force, Infinity Edge item.png Infinity Edge, or The Bloodthirster item.png The Bloodthirster) if AD. For more single target damage and sustained damage against low-mid range armored targets if you buy Black Cleaver.
    • (Archangel&#039;s Staff item.png Archangel's Staff, Rabadon&#039;s Deathcap item.png Rabadon's Deathcap, Luden&#039;s Echo item.png Luden's Echo, and Lich Bane item.png Lich Bane) if AP. For more multi-target damage and better burst.
    • (Nashor&#039;s Tooth item.png Nashor's Tooth, Blade of the Ruined King item.png Blade of the Ruined King and Wit&#039;s End item.png Wit's End) if on-hit. For high single target damage against low magic resist targets. Since Ravage.png Ravage gives you 120% attack speed bonus, you can reach the 2.5 attack speed cap very easily. Try to not get more than about an additional 100% attack speed.
    • (Trinity Force item.png Trinity Force, Wit&#039;s End item.png Wit's End, Hextech Gunblade item.png Hextech Gunblade, and Guinsoo&#039;s Rageblade item.png Guinsoo's Rageblade) if hybrid. For balanced damage. A hybrid build is squishy if you invest purely in offensive power, and since it relies on being in melee range, you will usually need to have at least 2 tanky items to survive.
    • For mixed melee and spell damage, single and AoE targets with a mix of survivability as well as mid-high armor, magic resistance and hit point targets you can utilize an item set such as: Iceborn Gauntlet item.png Iceborn Gauntlet, Liandry&#039;s Torment item.png Liandry's Torment, and The Black Cleaver item.png The Black Cleaver. This will maximize damage penetration as well as provide defense, crowd control and destroy high hit point targets with high efficiency as well as allowing her to wave clear minions and monster camps with extreme ease. It will also apply all three types of damage while providing two DoT's to an escaping target. Finishing the build off with Rylai&#039;s Crystal Scepter item.png Rylai's Crystal Scepter and a pair of Sorcerer&#039;s Shoes item.png Sorcerer's Shoes provides maximum damage and maintains the target/target's will never escape while producing more damage AND survivability.
  • Note that Evelynn is inherently squishy, so any melee oriented builds must have some items devoted to tankiness, such as Iceborn Gauntlet item.png Iceborn Gauntlet or Randuin&#039;s Omen item.png Randuin's Omen.
    • Actually, all builds require Evelynn to get very close to blow her target, particularly if she wants to hit Ravage.png Ravage that is her main instant nuke by late game, both on AP (very high ratio) and AD (high ratio) she has to nearly get to melee range. If you notice focus into you, for AD the aforementioned items might suffice, but a Frozen Mallet item.png Frozen Mallet makes Evelynn more undesirable to focus and resilient to upfront burst, it offer little damage however and should only be obtained if under heavy focus
    • For AP you can grab Rylai&#039;s Crystal Scepter item.png Rylai's Crystal Scepter or Rod of Ages item.png Rod of Ages. While you won't normally buy both you might need to if you find yourself under heavy focus.
  • Movement speed items, such as Phantom Dancer item.png Phantom Dancer and Boots of Mobility item.png Boots of Mobility allow you to gank a lot faster and gain extra kills, keep enemies more uncertain where you are, and help you escape if you're seen out of position. Keep in mind that slows are more powerful than hastes, and that movement speed items do not give much tankiness, so if you are caught or fancy going into melee range, a tankier item would be better thanks to the movement speed bonus from Dark Frenzy.png Dark Frenzy.
  • Think twice before buying enemy affecting aura items such as Frozen Heart item.png Frozen Heart as the enemy can notice these effects from a distance, alerting them to your presence and possibly ruining your surprise. Ally affecting aura items can also be noticed, but with more difficulty. This is not an issue with Abyssal Scepter item.png Abyssal Scepter due to this item having only 600 range, while Evelynn Evelynn's stealth range is 700.
Countering
  • Always look out for Evelynn Evelynn in your lane. Because of her stealth, she can easily sneak behind unsuspecting players who are overextended. Be aware that her movement speed boost can make her very surprising.
  • You can protect your lane by purchasing Vision Ward item.png Vision Wards and placing them in the river. Be careful if using Warding Totem item.jpg Warding Totems, because if she comes into your brush while already stealthed, you will not be able to see her until she unstealths, and that may be too late.
  • Evelynn can be built with either Ability Power, Attack Damage or even a mix of both. Pay attention to the way she builds to better decide what defensive items you should buy. However, she still deals a lot of magic damage even with an Attack Damage build, so Magic Resistance is rarely a bad option against her.
  • If Evelynn is building AD, she has a very weak early and mediocre mid, but trades for extremely high damage late game. If you are a squishy champ, stay behind tanks and try to focus her down.
  • Evelynn's stealth is lost when she takes damage. Harassing her greatly reduces her sneaking ability.
  • If you think Evelynn is near, use skillshots or AoE spells (Like a Ziggs Ziggs's Bouncing Bomb.png Bouncing Bomb or Ezreal Ezreal's Mystic Shot.png Mystic Shot) in her direction. If they hit it will disable Shadow Walk.png Shadow Walk and reveal her.
