Gwen Matchups Overview

Gwen General information

Gwen tips and tricks

Go in for a Snip Snip!Q combo when you have lots of stacks. Avoid using your Snip Snip!Qif you have 0 stacks. The best time to trade is when you have 4 stacks.

Keeping the minion wave closer to your side of the map will allow you to chase the enemy down and kill them.

If you’re committing to a trade with the enemy, your Hallowed MistW will give you extra defensive stats to help keep you alive. Cast your Hallowed MistW if you are fully committing to a fight.
