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 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 can also be played in the duo lane, make sure to check the alternative build at the top of the page! With Orianna in the duo lane, you can use Orianna's early game pressure and wave clear to try and roam around the river to help your jungler. The build is the same as mid lane but can be switched up depending on the matchup.
Orianna does great with most ability power items. Her main source of damage is from all her abilities. Archangel's Staff is a must buy item for Orianna since you will be spamming abilities a lot you need to extra mana to help you out. Also the passive shield can help her survive any burst damage. Luden's Echo is a great item that gives Orianna a lot of Ability Power and Ability Haste and some Maximum Mana to help Orianna stay in fights longer. After Luden's Echo, you want to build more Ability Power items like Rabadon's Deathcap and Void Staff so he can scale well into the late game.
With runes, we have the following:
With Orianna's long-range and spammable abilities that you can use multiple times during a fight, you can stack conqueror quickly and deal more damage.
Orianna uses Command: Attack to deal damage from afar, and she can combo this with her other abilities. Scorch allows Orianna's abilities to deal more damage which helps at all game stages.
Command: Dissonance can slow enemy champions. Since this ability is on a very low cooldown, Orianna can deal true damage when hitting this ability multiple times during a fight.
Eyeball Collector is great since it gives Orianna more Ability Power every time he gets a takedown. Zombie Ward can also be a good choice if you often roam and look to kill wards.
Since Orianna is a very squishy champion that tends to get focused, Bone Plating will help her take reduced damage from the first three instances of damage, which will help her survive against bursting.
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 to speed up your allies or slow down enemies. You can also use Protect to shield your allies and get your ball in a better position so you can get a huge Shockwave 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.
