Playing as Qiyana means playing with the elements around the map, namely the river, the wall, and the brush.
Her passive ability, Royal Privilege, gives primary attacks or abilities a bonus damage.
Qiyana’s first skill can be very tricky, as the effects vary depending on the element used. Edge of Ixtal deals damage by slashing the area in front of Qiyana. If an element is used, she will throw her ring to the target and it will explode.
The river element will root enemies, the wall element will give an additional damage to low health units, and the brush element will give Qiyana movement speed after giving a stealth trail.
Terrashape targets any of the three elements, making Qiyana dash while gaining movement speed, attack speed, and bonus damage.
Audacity, her E ability, deals damage by making a dash.
Her ultimate ability called Supreme Display of Talent creates a shockwave that knocks back enemies. Any element hit by the shockwave will explode and stun opponents for a short period.
Utilizing Terrashape is the key to victory, according to Riot’s BenSandalwoodgrips Chabala.
“Qiyana gets damage, attack speed, and damage buffs while she’s near her chosen element (River/Wall/Brush), and Q – Edge of Ixtal, gains enhanced properties, letting her root enemies, do more damage to low health
