About the Author

Straften is a Grand Master ranked player in both Hero League and Team League. He has a passion for theorycrafting, and regularly tests new features early on the PTR. He explains his strategy, reasoning, and implementation in these guides.

1. Heroes Li Li Works Well With

In this section, we will look at Heroes that work particularly well with Li Li.

1.1. E.T.C.

E.T.C. Portrait E.T.C. is a powerful tank that is able to peel any aggressors away from you with Powerslide Icon Powerslide and Face Melt Icon Face Melt. Rockstar Icon Rockstar provides you and your team with increased attack speed. Since E.T.C. is a tank, he is a perfect target to cast Cloud Serpent Icon Cloud Serpent on.

1.2. Johanna

Johanna Portrait Johanna is an extremely hard-to-kill tank and although she lacks any mobility she is able to disrupt and peel the enemy team with Blinds of her own, Slows, and Condemn Icon Condemn. Her most commonly picked Heroic ability, Blessed Shield Icon Blessed Shield, can lockdown and Stun multiple enemies. At Level 20, Johanna gains Indestructible Icon Indestructible, further increasing her survivability. Johanna's excessive survivability allows Li Li to provide constant sustained healing, without worrying about Johanna dying to burst damage.

1.3. Uther

Uther Portrait Uther is able to lock down targets with Hammer of Justice Icon Hammer of Justice and Divine Storm Icon Divine Storm. Uther can also use Holy Light Icon Holy Light, Holy Radiance Icon Holy Radiance, Cleanse Icon Cleanse, and Divine Shield Icon Divine Shield to supplement your healing, allowing you to play more damage heavy. Divine Shield is also perfect to avoid burst damage from the enemy team, allowing Li Li to use her sustained healing to its full potential.

2. Heroes Li Li Is Countered By

In this section, we will look at Heroes that counter Li Li particularly well.

2.1. Anub'arak

Anub'arak Portrait Anub'arak's Impale Icon Impale and Burrow Charge Icon Burrow Charge are both Stuns and able to interrupt Jug of 1,000 Cups Icon Jug of 1,000 Cups. Additonally, Cocoon Icon Cocoon is a long range targeted ability that is able to make you unable to take any action for up to 8 seconds. It can also interrupt Jug of 1,000 Cups. Anub'arak also has a very high damage output for a tank since Scarab Host Icon Scarab Host is able to create an army of beetles.

2.1.1. How To Play Against Anub'arak

Luckily, both Impale and Burrow Charge are skillshots that can be avoided, as long as you are aware of them. Fast Feet Icon Fast Feet can assist you in dodging them. Web Blast, on the other hand, cannot be avoided, and can be used to interrupt Jug of 1,000 Cups without fail. Fortunately, most Anub'arak go for Locust Swarm Icon Locust Swarm, so this will usually not be an issue.

2.2. E.T.C.

E.T.C. Portrait E.T.C. is a powerful and mobile tank that is able to dive into the middle of your team. Powerslide Icon Powerslide and Face Melt Icon Face Melt make it difficult to use Jug of 1,000 Cups Icon Jug of 1,000 Cups without it getting cancelled. Additionally, Li Li has no way of interrupting Mosh Pit Icon Mosh Pit if E.T.C. begins channelling it.

2.2.1. How To Play Against E.T.C.

The most important thing to do when playing versus E.T.C. is to stay back. Do not go within range of his Powerslide Icon Powerslide, unless it has just been used, or you risk getting comboed into Mosh Pit Icon Mosh Pit, which will often go uninterrupted. Face Melt Icon Face Melt is also extremely effective at interrupting Jug of 1,000 Cups Icon Jug of 1,000 Cups, making it even more important to stay away from E.T.C. when you are channelling the ability. E.T.C. himself lacks any major damage and he cannot kill you in a 1v1, so do not allow him to bully you completely away from the fight. His Stuns are only threatening because they allow his team to followup while you are unable to move.

2.3. Jaina

Jaina Portrait Jaina, like Nova, can deal a massive amount of burst damage, killing you instantly. If you do manage to survive her combo, Frostbite Icon Frostbite and Summon Water Elemental Icon Summon Water Elemental will permanently slow you, allowing her or her allies to finish you off.

2.3.1. How To Play Against Jaina

Jaina's biggest weakness is her short range and low mobility; she must put herself at risk in order to deal damage. However, Jaina will usually flank enemy Heroes, taking them by surprise when they least expect it. Always be aware of Jaina's and tell your tanks to peel for you. Be wary of bushes, other areas that you lack vision, and choke-points. Additionally, attempt to stay just out of range of Cone of Cold Icon Cone of Cold, as it is her key ability to setup and deal additional damage.
