Tips

Playing As Sivir Sivir
  • Sivir Sivir's Boomerang Blade.png Boomerang Blade returns to her after reaching the max range, so you can shift position to hit enemies who would otherwise have evaded it.
  • Ricochet.png Ricochet resets Sivir Sivir's basic attack timer on activation, so activating this immediately after landing a normal basic attack will maximize damage output.
  • Try saving Spell Shield.png Spell Shield for enemy abilities that can disable you such as stuns and roots.
Playing Against Sivir Sivir
  • Boomerang Blade.png Boomerang Blade costs a lot of mana to cast, so dodging it sets Sivir Sivir back. If it hits you on the way out, avoid its path on the way back.
  • Sivir Sivir is a powerful pushing champion, so leaving her unattended in a lane for too long will often result in your turrets being destroyed.
  • When laning against Sivir Sivir, it is possible to throw off the timing of her Spell Shield.png Spell Shield by faking an advance, then backing off.

Tricks

Ability Usage
  • During the laning phase, you can harass enemy champions with Boomerang Blade.png Boomerang Blade to put pressure on them. Successful hits will force them to play safer and get zoned out. However, the mana cost of this playstyle is extremely high, due to Sivir Sivir's small mana pool.
    • Boomerang Blade.png Boomerang Blade returns to her after reaching the max range, so you can move your own position to hit enemies who would otherwise have evaded it.
    • Boomerang Blade.png Boomerang Blade can be used to check for enemy champions in the brush, due to its slicing sound when it hits an enemy unit/champion.
    • As Boomerang Blade.png Boomerang Blade deals less damage with each enemy hit, try to hit champions without hitting minions.
      • A good strategy is to wait until a wave clears, or when they are running in a straight line.
    • Boomerang Blade.png Boomerang Blade tends to fall off somewhat later in the game compared to Sivir Sivir's autoattacks.
      • However, it is still useful for picking off enemies after a teamfight.
  • Despite being a champion with relatively high mana costs and effective lane zoning, Sivir Sivir can easily and effectively be adapted to play in an aggressive lane with supports such as Thresh Thresh and Leona Leona with a few simple changes to mentality.
  • Use Spell Shield.png Spell Shield to bait out important spells from your enemies before you engage, OR use spell shield to bait an engage out of your opponent. Only do this if you and your support are prepared to fight to the death.
    • With this in mind, do not mindlessly waste Spell Shield.png Spell Shield. Only block spells if you need mana or if you don't fear any subsequent spells from the enemy. Players are aware of Sivir's need to regenerate mana with her Spell Shield.png Spell Shield and may bait her into blocking a damage spell in order to hard engage her and win an easy kill.
  • Boomerang Blade.png Boomerang Blade is a zoning tool by nature, but can be easily wasted if you only use it for this purpose. Instead, conserve mana until you are ready to hard-engage the enemy, then burst down your target with a mid-range Boomerang Blade.png Boomerang Blade followed immediately by one basic attack+Ricochet.png Ricochet reset combo. This entire combo should hit before the Boomerang Blade.png Boomerang Blade returns to deal its return damage.
    • This combo allows Sivir Sivir to compete with lane bullies and bursty carries such as Lucian Lucian in a hard engage, but the Boomerang Blade.png Boomerang Blade can still be used for extreme range control and zoning if necessary.
  • Ricochet.png Ricochet is a cheap tool for harassment. Try to hit enemy champions with it directly after an auto attack, or last hit creeps with a Ricochet.png Ricochet when the enemy is close to the wave.
    • Ricochet.png Ricochet also resets your attack timer, which means you can use it immediately after you auto attack to get a 'free attack'.
  • Getting at least one rank of Spell Shield.png Spell Shield early is very helpful, as with a bit of practice you will be able to use Spell Shield.png Spell Shield to negate spells. With experience you can avoid damage/crowd control/death and recover mana in the process.
    • Spell Shield.png Spell Shield has a long cooldown when it's still rank 1, so use it wisely during early game. When using Spell Shield.png Spell Shield to regain mana, you are vulnerable to crowd control effects.
    • Spell Shield.png Spell Shield enables Sivir Sivir to lane mid as it can counter most spells while also regenerating Sivir's mana.
    • Spell Shield.png Spell Shield is especially strong when laning against mage champions, particularly ones with delayed damage spells, as it allows you to regenerate mana fairly often. It can also disrupt combo-reliant mages.
  • The movement speed bonuses of On The Hunt.png On The Hunt work very well on melee attacking-reliant teammates.
  • Lacking in hard CC, Sivir Sivir can rely on Boomerang Blade.png Boomerang Blade and Ricochet.png Ricochet to deal delayed damage and prolong Fleet of Foot.png Fleet of Foot to kite her enemies.
  • Given enough attack damage, Boomerang Blade.png Boomerang Blade and/or Ricochet.png Ricochet can quickly kill a whole wave of minions.
Mastery Usage
Item Usage
Countering
  • Sivir Sivir is fairly squishy in the lane. Putting pressure on her can make her under-farmed or under-leveled.
    • Keep in mind that she is very resilient to zone because of her Spell Shield.png Spell Shield, and being too aggressive might make it easier for her to land Boomerang Blade.png Boomerang Blade.
  • When picking an ADC against Sivir Sivir, effective ones are ADCs that do not rely on abilities to deal their damage. ADCs like Vayne Vayne, Draven Draven, and Tristana Tristana are effective because their abilities are actually steroids to themselves, and as such, Sivir Sivir can't block them, and will be out-traded.
  • It is suggested to bring more than one initiation ability if going against Sivir Sivir. For example, if you have both Leona Leona and Malphite Malphite on your team, Sivir Sivir will have a hard time deciding which ultimate initiation she should block. It is even better when you have an assassin such as Zed Zed on your team. In short, having a lot of dangerous abilities on your team will be Sivir Sivir's downfall as she can only block one ability at a time.
  • When choosing an assassin to deal with Sivir Sivir, keep in mind that casters such as LeBlanc LeBlanc and Kha&#039;Zix Kha'Zix are less effective against her, thanks to her Spell Shield.png Spell Shield. Consider taking assassins who instead rely on auto-attacks, such as Master Yi Master Yi, Shaco Shaco, and Nocturne Nocturne.
  • Remember that Sivir lacks mobility. Her only escape ability is On The Hunt.png On The Hunt, and it is unreliable as it can be countered by slows and gap closers. As such, ganking Sivir Sivir during the early game is a good idea.
  • Sivir Sivir deals entirely physical damage, and much of that damage is dealt through autoattacks. Consider buying armor if she starts to deal too much damage.
  • Avoid taking free damage from her Boomerang Blade.png Boomerang Blade by moving out of its path.
    • If you can't dodge it, staying behind your minion wave will mitigate some of the damage.
    • Also, keep in mind that Boomerang Blade.png Boomerang Blade will return to Sivir Sivir after reaching its max range. Being at its max range could be advantageous in that it's a slow projectile, making it easier to dodge. It could also be a disadvantage due to the projectile hitting both the throw and return strike very quickly if it hits.
  • Wait until Sivir Sivir's Spell Shield.png Spell Shield is on cooldown before activating your high-damaging spell. Bait her into using it by acting as if you're going to cast it on her, then don't. 
  • Sivir Sivir is often very attack speed oriented. As a tank, grabbing a Frozen Heart item.png Frozen Heart or Randuin&#039;s Omen item.png Randuin's Omen can be a very effective counter to her. Champions like Malphite Malphite and Nasus Nasus, who can slow attack speed, are also good ways to deal with her. However, keep in mind that Sivir can use her Spell Shield.png Spell Shield to block abilities that slow attack speed.
  • Although Sivir Sivir is a carry, she is still fairly powerful early game. Her Boomerang Blade.png Boomerang Blade hits hard if she lands both portions on you exclusively, and her Ricochet.png Ricochet and Spell Shield.png Spell Shield are specialized for one-on-one skirmishing. Taking her head-on without heavy armor or hit points can result in a long trip back from your nexus.
