League of Legends: Wild Rift Evelynn Gameplay Tips

Evelynn is a powerful assassin role champion who specializes in easily taking down enemy backline champions without a trace thanks to her powerful Stealth ability. Due to her skill set and hero style, it is highly recommended to go to Jungle Lane with Evelynn.

Wild Rift’s map is mirrored, so it is necessary to understand the map side before laning. According to his gameplay, we can break it down into three phases. Our League of Legends: Wild Rift guide for Evelynn includes the perfect game plan for the early, mid, and late games.

Early Game

You can start by buying the Amplifying Tome item at first, for extra magic power and as a basic item for Evelynn’s builds. Next up proceed to place a ward in the bushes near your buff so you can be alerted beforehand, just in case the enemy invades your jungle. If no enemy is around, start taking down the jungle monsters.

It is advisable to start with the Red Brambleback before proceeding to the Blue Sentinel. Then clear the camps in the order of Red Brambleback, Raptors, Wolves, Blue Buff, and Scuttle Crab. This rotation allows the player to level up and farm quickly, gain gold, whilst securing your buffs from any potential enemy invasion.

On clearing out the jungle, you could either rotate to invade the enemy jungle or help gank the enemy side laner. With that simple jungle rotation technique, you should have unlocked your ultimate. Then return to the base to get some pre-core items before larger monsters like Rift Herald and Dragon spawn. Do not conserve your smite, try to maximize it to slay strong jungle monsters especially when the enemy is contesting it.

Players must note that it’s much more advisable to prioritize and secure the Rift Herald, as its perks and rewards are more overall beneficial for the team. Also, in the early game, Evelynn should prioritize farming up so she can unlock the Camouflage perk of her passive ability. One must note that the Camouflage is only available when she reaches Level 5. With Camouflage, Evelynn can easily sneak up on enemy ADC and assist in taking them down in the early game phase. To easily perform in the early game, one must use the following combo.

Skill 2 + Skill 1 (Recast on Repeat) + Skill 3

Mid Game

On taking down main Jungle objectives like the Rift Herald, you and your allies would be granted lots of gold. Further utilizing the Herald to take down an enemy turret, would grant extra gold necessary to easily buy purchase some of your core build items.

On prioritizing Evelynn’s main damage items which include Lich Bane and Infinity Orb, coupled with even Rabadon’s Deathcap, one can easily take down the squishy enemy champions. To achieve that, one must prioritize aiming the enemy team’s main ADC.

Being a burst damage champion you shouldn’t target high HP and sustain heroes unless they have very low Health and are alone. Nonetheless, prioritizing enemy main ADC heroes would deter enemies farming as killing them will make the enemy fall behind in terms of gold and XP.

Players should utilize their camouflage and use their ultimate ability on enemy backliners to deal high burst AOE damage to them and their surrounding enemy champions. To easily burst down enemy ADC in the Mid or late game, one must use the following combo.

Skill 2 + Skill 1 (Recast on repeat) + Skill 3 + Skill 4

Late Game

Upon farming and taking objectives during the early or mid-game, Evelynn is quite strong as her burst skills now excel at performing takedowns on enemy backliners effectively. Nonetheless, one should prioritize taking solo or loose-end champions as she’s not too durable to face numerous enemy champions head-on.

During the late game, both teams deal with massive damage and their main objective is to push turrets whilst securing epic monsters like Baron Nashor and the Elder Dragons. As an Assassin, roam around the map, preferably with a Tank to soak all the damages, and then target the carry and Mage heroes. Once the enemy’s main damage dealer has been taken down, your team will be able to easily clear the lanes.

Final Thoughts

Evelynn is undoubtedly a strong assassin champion with powerful skills that can easily burst down enemy champions in seconds. Coupled with a unique passive and powerful ultimate ability, Evelynn is a true and worthy S-tier Jungle hero capable of dominating the ranks.
