    Basic guide

    Beginner tips

    Standing still is the worst thing to do as Taya, with a lot of practice, you will be able to stay hasted for the most part of the rounds

    Kiting is key. Hold your distance from your enemies by using your space to gain haste.

    Keep your R in order to dodge important spells and reposition correctly (you can jump through walls with it).

    Combos

    Difficulty :
    M2 + M1 + exQ + M1

    Difficulty :
    E + F + M2 + M1's

    You can do this combo before land your ult, to optimize your cooldowns.

    Mastering guide

    Positioning

    Stay always mobile and as far away from your enemy (just in range for your M1, which will make you really safe against most of the champions)

    Sudden death

    Your Q is a powerful spell to push your enemies out of the safe zone, but remember that the closed zone will make you more vulnerable and make kiting harder.

    Advanced tips

    You need to learn to reset your haste effectively to master taya. A good way to reset it is to throw your E on an opponent to lock them down while using your Space, then entering the E zone to gain haste again, then trying to reset the haste bonus by hitting a Q on your enemy. You will be landing M1 and M2 while doing it of course. It will requires a bit of practice but if you hit your spells, you can pretty much chunk the health of your opponent alone !

    Keep in mind that your E cancels casting spells such as counters or canalizing ultimates (Sirius' one for example).

    Orb control

    Taya has 2 great combo to take the orb :

    M1 + M2 (with cross cut) = Orb one shot

    EX M2 + M1 = 64 damage if timed correctly
