She's far too good at some things but poor at others.
The range on Q is far too short to make it a sustained harass spell but it's amazing at kiting enemies.
The cc on W seems far too short but it's compensated by both increasing in rank and the fact that this spell can be used to farm creeps.
E is generally your escape, so you want to keep that saved, however it starts on a really long cooldown and then goes down to something like 12 seconds, 7.2 with max CD. This is far too short for an ability that both goes in a line and deal damage AND acts as a blink on a mage with 325 base MS.
If anything, her E will be hit, it's far too strong late game.
I don't mind her being super strong late game, considering her laning phase is pretty bad. It's not the 1st time Riot makes a champ with weak early game but super strong late game (Vayne, Kog'Maw, Nasus).
her late game isn't just super strong, it's amazing. Max CDR+500+ ap makes liss a beast.
Also, if you find her laning phase too weak, set up a few ganks early. With her E->snare>Q combo with your jungle you should be able to easily force them out.
