Marci Guide Header.png


Marci minimap icon.png Marci is a monstrous carry that jumps in and out of fights easily with her Rebound which also grants her allies bonus movement speed if she jumps onto them, and catches enemies off-guard with her Dispose. Her ultimate, Unleash, combined with Sidekick, that provides an ally and herself bonus damage and lifesteal turn her into a shredder, completely decimating enemies who dare to look down on her. A highly adaptable fighter, she can either choose to be an initiator and buy Blink Dagger icon.png Blink Dagger or become a carry that can destroy enemies with items that commend her ultimate together. Her skillset also allows her to destroy towers fast and escape imminent death whenever she senses it, however does require an aggressive mindset, and good decision-making, as one mistake can lead to her death easily.
Pros Cons
  • Good mobility with Rebound.
  • Versatile to fit any role.
  • High burst damage.
  • Multiple attacks in quick succession with Unleash.
  • Scales well into the late game.
  • Easily countered by silences, hexes, and stuns.
  • Cannot attack in between fury combos during Unleash.
  • Rebound requires precise accuracy to jump in at the right range.


Marci can either play mid or in the safe lane due to her high burst damage in the early stages of the game. A simple combo with Rebound and Dispose can easily catch enemies off-guard, so Marci is suitable to play aggressively in the laning stage once she gets her levels. A carry Marci shines best with Daedalus icon.png Daedalus, Abyssal Blade icon.png Abyssal Blade, or for an alternative Bloodthorn icon.png Bloodthorn/Silver Edge icon.png Silver Edge to make Marci a tremendous force to be reckoned with. Consider buying Black King Bar icon.png Black King Bar, as Marci can get demolished by enemies who have lock-on crowd controls to shut her down.
