Lissandra, the Ice Witch is a ranged AP mage. She is played in mid and top lane as a short-ranged poker

Description

Lore: Lissandra’s magic twists the pure power of ice into something dark and terrible. With the force of her black ice, she does more than freeze – she impales and crushes those who oppose her. To the terrified denizens of the north, she is known only as "The Ice Witch". The truth is much more sinister: Lissandra is a corrupter of nature who plots to unleash an ice age on the world.

Centuries ago, Lissandra betrayed her tribe to evil creatures, known as the Frozen Watchers, in return for power. That was the last day that warm blood ran through her veins. With her corrupted tribesmen and the strength of the Watchers, she swept across the land like a terrible blizzard. As her empire spread, the world grew colder and ice choked the land. When the Watchers were defeated by ancient heroes, Lissandra did not lose faith and swore to prepare the world for their return.

Lissandra worked to purge all knowledge of the Watchers from the world. Using magic to take human form, she masqueraded as numerous seers and elders. Over the course of generations, she rewrote the stories of the Freljord, and so the history of its people changed. Today the fragmented retellings of the Watchers are seen as children’s tales. But this deception wasn't enough – Lissandra also needed an army.

She set her sights on the noble Frostguard tribe. Lissandra knew corrupting the Frostguard would take centuries, and so she launched her greatest deception. She murdered and stole the identity of the Frostguard leader. Then she slowly began to warp the tribe’s proud traditions. When her human form grew old, she faked her own death and then murdered her successor to steal her identity. With each generation, the Frostguard grew more insular, cruel and twisted. Today, the world still sees them as a noble and peaceful tribe that guards against evil creatures like the Ice Witch. In truth, they now serve the witch and long for the glorious return of the Watchers.

Lissandra knows that on that day nations will fall and the world will be reborn in ice.

"Close your eyes and let the cold take you."

Patch History

v4.13

Lissandra can use Q more often at later levels, W's ability power ratio has gone down, but R now slows for a lot more

"I'm going to directly quote someone here: "We want to emphasize Lissandra's strengths that aren't 'stun some fool for 1.5 seconds and then burst them down.'"

In other words, we're giving this ice mage more sustained damage in the late game while also improving her battlefield control. This does mean we need to tune down some of Lissandra's burstiness (especially with Q getting a full second reduction), but overall it lets us highlight more of her unique talents."

  • IceShard.jpg Q - Ice Shard
    • COOLDOWN: 6/5.5/5/4.5/4 seconds ⇒ 6/5.25/4.5/3.75/3 seconds
  • RingOfFrost.jpg W - Ring of Frost
    • ABILITY POWER RATIO: 0.60 ⇒ 0.40
  • FrozenTomb.jpg R - Frozen Tomb
    • SLOW: 20/30/40% ⇒ 30/45/75%

v4.7

  • FrozenTomb.jpg R - Frozen Tomb

v3.08
For a control mage with the kit she has, Lissandra was throwing out a lot of front-loaded damage. The intention of these changes was not only to lower her damage, but to also better highlight her in-fight control as her core strength.

    • Mana cost reduced to 50 from 70
    • Fixed a bug where the root failed to apply if Lissandra died
  • Glacial Path
    • Cooldown now begins upon initial cast rather than upon recativation or at the end of the missile
  • Frozen Tomb
    • Self-cast duration increased to 2.5 seconds from 1.5
    • Slow increased to 20 / 30 / 40% from 20% at all levels
    • Damage reduced to 150 / 250 / 350 from 150 / 300 / 450
