Seems like a pretty good combo.

I know the E travels pretty slow, so I thought you might be able to launch it, stasis, and then blink to it.

You would be suppressed, so no.

Suppression means you can't take any action. This has a zhonya twist to it thats all.

She can't cast spells while in stasis. That's why it's called stasis.

You cannot cast any ability while self-ulted

If you ult an enemy, then yes. Her E doesn't move that slowly.

No, the E will reach its final destination before you come back out from the ult.

We did test a version where you could activate the E even while invulnerable/untargetable. It felt great for the Lissandra player of course but removed a lot of the gameplay around the E (CCing her during its travel time in particular). It also added an enormous amount of power to her, to the extent we'd have had to massively cut the E's range to make it balanced.

Thank you Meddler! I'm glad you understood, and the guy above you!

This thread should be on the PBE forums, since lissandra is there and not live. I know it's general discussion, but, yeah, you get the point

Man, too bad you aren't in, like, a business that employs creative people or something. Otherwise you might be able to figure out interesting solutions instead of going, "Too good, we must gut it completely."

For instance: What if activating E while under the ult changed how the skill worked, and the icy claw would pick up your tomb and carry you forward (extending the time of your ult appropriately of course). Now your counterplay is that can be seen moving and thus responded to, you are vulnerable once you arrive at the other end, and it also gives you counterplay against characters like Blitz or Thresh who might snag you due to your short range.
