Orianna is a control mage champion. She is a mid-laner that uses her abilities to control a team fight, wave clear, and burst down the enemies. She excels in team fights in the mid and late game, using her ball to control the enemies and get a huge Shockwave (Ultimate) to deal a lot of damage. She doesn't do too well in the early game as she doesn't have a lot of mobility to escape, and you need time to scale and get your core items.
Orianna does great with most ability power items. Her main source of damage is from all her abilities. Archangel's Staff is a very unique item for Orianna. With Orianna you use your abilities a lot so you can stack Archangel's Staff and upgrade it to Seraph's Embrace really fast. This allows you to get a shield when you go low on health. After Archangel's Staff, you want to build more mana and ability power so you can be a carry for your team.
With runes, we have the following:
Orianna uses auto-attacks and a lot of abilities to damage enemies within a short space of time. This means she can get the stacks pretty fast, which allows her to get more damage on the enemies.
A good way to get that extra bit of ability power damage especially in the early game where Orianna can struggle.
With Orianna you will be trading a lot in the laning phase so it is very helpful to have more health regeneration so you can stay in lane for longer and win trades.
A great rune for if you get low in the laning phase and need that extra bit of healing and get some free money.
Orianna is a champion that needs time to get her core items and get levels to scale up into the late game. During the laning phase, the best thing you can do is stack your Archangel's Staff as fast as possible. This means using your abilities to clear the wave and poke down the enemy. Pushing the wave also benefits Orianna because this means that the enemy mid-lane doesn't have an opportunity to engage.
The later the game goes, the stronger Orianna becomes. You want to stay with your team at all times and try not to get caught out by yourself. You don't do well at all in a 1 vs 1 situation. You can use your Dissonance (2nd Ability) to speed up your allies or slow down enemies. You can also use Protect (3rd Ability) to shield your allies and get your ball in a better position so you can get a huge Shockwave (Ultimate) to change a team fight.
If you want a champion that uses her abilities to control team fights and can farm and push waves pretty safely in the mid lane then Orianna is a perfect champion for you.
