In LoL's classification, Gwen is a "Fighter". She has decent mobility and can deal heavy damage at close range, Everything with some defensive tools. She is an AP character, so she deals magical damage, and is mainly found in Toplane. She uses her various spells to play a duelist role, being able to take down most of the Champions she may come across in one-on-one or skirmishes.

To play Gwen to her full potential, we recommend using runes that give you good dueling skills. The primordial rune "Conqueror" fulfills this function very well. Regarding her build, in order of priority we recommend you to buy an Everfrost, Ionian Boots of Lucidity, a Cosmic Drive, a Lich Bane, a Resolve Staff and finally a Zhonya's Hourglass.

Gwen's spells give her damage, mobility, and a bit of utility. Her Q is her main skill, which she has to load up with her basic attacks and deals very decent damage in front of her. This especially synergizes with her passive, which allows her basic attacks to deal extra damage. Gwen's W, Hallowed Mist, is her most important defensive tool, allowing her to surround herself with an area that makes her impervious to opposing Champions who are not in it. Gwen's E is a dash, which allows her to reposition herself and has a reduced cooldown when she attacks an enemy after using it.

Finally, Gwen's ultimate ability casts one, then three, then five needles, each inflicting magical area damage and slowing down affected targets. Gwen must attack a Champion after each use in order to reroll the spell and cast more needles.

Ally Tips

Always be Attacking - In addition to dealing bonus damage, Gwen Runes's Attacks empower or reset many of her Abilities.

Gwen Runes can still damage enemies outside her Hallowed Mists, especially with her Ultimate's range.

Some of Gwen Runes's Abilities can apply her passive to multiple enemies, so aim them at groups to get maximum damage and healing.

Enemy Tips

Gwen Runes's Hallowed Mist shroud will only follow her once, after that it will dissipate when she leaves.

Gwen Runes must hit something to recast her Ultimate, try to evade her between casts.

Gwen Runes needs to attack a few times to set up her damage, so try to get the jump on her.

A former doll transformed and brought to life by magic, Gwen Runes wields the very tools that once created her. She carries the weight of her maker's love with every step, taking nothing for granted. At her command is the Hallowed Mist, an ancient and protective magic that has blessed Gwen Runes's scissors, needles, and sewing thread. So much is new to her, but Gwen Runes remains joyfully determined to fight for the good that survives in a broken world.
