Harassing with Mid Tristana

Alright, I need more help. I've gotten better at playing mid, but against certain characters (Ashe, Teemo, Sivir) I fail hard at harassing. Everytime I try I get hit harder than I hit them, and then when I try to go for the kill after getting them to half bar I usually end up dying instead

I harass with active E and auto-shot. Should I do something different? Should I choose better moments? Should I not harass altogether?

I think it's mostly your timing that's off more than anything, but there are some champs where you just simply can't harass them that hard with Explosive Shot if played right, if at all.

Examples I can think of are Heimerdinger(not sure on new), Veigar, Kog'maw, but perhaps a more seasoned Trist player can come in and provide more input.

You should be owning Ashe as you begin to outrange her as Trist...harder with Teemo as he can blind you and Sivir as she probably will outpush you so I dunno what advice to give against those 2.

But I can't out range her volley and that's what give me problems should I just eat/dodge a volley and then start to auto-attack?

Use Exhaust. Shoot a bunch of minions down to half health. Rocket Jump them, and the enemy Champ. E, then Exhaust the Champ. Your minions will start hitting the Champ while he tries to flee. Use a potion when you land if you think they'll stand there and shoot you.

Ashe/Teemo/Sivir aren't the difficult ones. It's the ones with spammy abilities like Ezreal that are the hard ones. You spend more time dodging dumb stuff than killing stuff.

Exhaust? Really? Up til now I've been using Ignite/Teleport - should I replace either, and if so which one?

It's a 1v1 tournament.

These are some pretty good summoner spell combinations:
Flash/Ghost
Cleanse/Flash
Cleanse/Ghost
Maybe Ignite or teleport if no one else has teleport.

edit: Jeeze this is a lot older than I thought. ._. Rally doesn't heal anymore.

Trist has a really op auto range, abuse it. FYI: when you attack a champ, the minions focus you just like a turret would so use some common sense about the tradeoff there.

Exhaust is a great spell because it can be used both defensively and offensively.

Anyways, you might not want to harass at all. I'd reccomend just trying to push the minions harder than they do. Chances are, if they're trying hard to harass you, they're not trying to push.
