Things To Consider When Playing Against Evelynn

  • Purchasing Control Wards can help you detect Evelynn’s location in order to prepare for her ambushes.
  • Evelynn’s stealth is not available to her until level 6, and Lust Dust needs time to set up. this makes her susceptible to early invades.
  • If you suspect Evelynn is about to ambush one of your teammates, let them know by pinging the minimap and typing in chat.
  • Demon Shade is an out of combat effect, so when she casts Lust Dust (indicating she is nearby and preparing to attack) you can fire large area spells like Volley into her possible gank paths to cripple her.
  • Evelynn can still be affected by wards as long as you place them in areas where she will enter combat I.E. next to her jungle camps.
