Is it just me or that CP Lyra seems to be creeping in slightly to the meta, especially in higher tiers. Her A and B high base damage and decent cp ratios are making her quite the monster. She counters Malene, can play against a Celeste and a Samuel, Defeat Varya in the Early game, and is a quite even matchup vs. Skaarf in terms of poke.
Her Base damage in her A is way too high. Even Celeste’s supernova has a lower base damage. Though her CP ratio is lower compared to Celeste’s super nova, Lyra spikes earlier and harder due to her base damage at lv 8 and her 12 range + her decent Cp ratio of 100%.
She fits the current 5v5 meta in where Mid Laners that spike very hard and not too late are very viable, such as Malene, Samuel and Varya. Celeste doesn’t do as well as she could in this update because of her range nerf but she still is extremely viable.
Though you can argue her A still has a 7 second cooldown, it turns into 5 with clock work and her base attack speed and her range on her basic attack at lv 12 hits extremely hard AND has an extreme range of 7.1.
Honestly CP Lyra is still a beast. It is funny on how excoundrel doesn’t put her on the list for best mid laners this update. Not to mention that she is a great flex pick into captain and top laner too.
