Taliyah has some interesting skins to choose from; let us take a closer look.

Taliyah, The Stone Weaver released in 2016, is one of the more popular champions in League of Legends. She is a nomadic mage from the region of Shurima, with a will strong enough to move even the mountains and a spirit fierce enough to make the earth itself tremble.

In-game, Taliyah is a mid-range battle mage with high pushing power and excellent roaming ability. She excels at both small skirmishes and extended team fights by providing ample amount of damage and crowd control.

Taliyah was initially meant to be a mid-laner, but nowadays, she can be played successfully both in the Mid-Lane and the Jungle. Her Passive – Rock Surfing and her R – Weaver’s Wall are excellent roaming tools that allow Taliyay to thrive both in the Jungle and Mid-Lane.

Although she was underpowered for quite a long time, the recent Season 14 item changes allowed her to come back into the meta and be a dominant pick.
