Tips & Tricks
As a marksman, Miya is fragile and excels at keeping her distance and whittling enemies down. She is weak in the early game and needs to focus on obtaining gold, chiefly through farming minions, to buy items.
Miya’s lack of mobility and weak defenses make her a high priority target that can be easily killed. In the early game especially, she should stay with a teammate for protection. In team fights, Miya should usually stay in the backline, firing basic attacks and spells as safely as possible to the nearest enemy target.
With her passive Turbo granting her an attack speed boost when firing, Miya enjoys Swift Boots that increase her attack speed even further. She can build further damage and attack speed oriented items as well as lifesteal like Haas’s Claws to give her some sustain, especially useful in lanes where she is subject to getting poked down and jumped on.
Miya’s first special ability, Fission Shot, buffs her basic attack, giving it an area of effect, making it easier for her to output damage in team fights or clear minion waves.
Her second special ability, Rain of Arrows, gives her some poke as well as crowd control that can come in handy when needed for an escape or to control enemies for an engage.
Lastly, her ultimate, Turbo Stealth, is a versatile skill that can be used for a quick getaway or a surprise initiation thanks to its conceal, movement speed and attack speed buffs. Knowing when to use it to advance or retreat will be an important part of mastering Miya.
Miya benefits most from the Marksman emblem page, with upgrades in Fatal and Doom to increase her crit chance and damage. The Weakness Finder talent has a chance to greatly slow enemies she hits with her basic attacks and reduces their attack speed, making it easier for her to both pursue targets or run away and kite them.
