Summoner Spells Back to Top

12.png : When against ranged/high poke champion, or hard lane

14.png : When wanting to snowball, and against high sustain champs

New Runes Back to Top

Masteries Back to Top

Best setup atm.

Ferocity:

Pretty straightforward, take Feast if against a hard laner

Resolve:

Best for sustain, and 15% cdr on flash for those flash-ult plays
Both Swiftness and Legendary guardian are viable, you can swap between those too.

You will ALWAYS max R>Q>E>W.

Why max E over W? E benefits much more from each point you invest in it than W.


If you max W before E, at levels 10-14 your E will feel useless. However if you maxed E, W won't feel useless at all, and E will deal nice damage.

VS

Darius

Hard

This guy pretty much has far more dueling potential than you do, just don't get too close to him and harass him with illaoiQ.png. He shouldn't be able to kill you as long as you stay at a safe distance. Late game you will be much more usefull than him during fights.

VS

Dr. Mundo

Easy

Run 14.png. Abuse of his weak early game, punish him with illaoiQ.png every time he tries to get some farm. If he plays really safe you won't be able to kill him, so just focus on really denying his farm.

VS

Fiora

Easy

OK, so this one is pretty straightforward: deny her farm and don't let her get items and you win. She will most likely try to fiorariposte.png your illaoiE.png, so you want to keep that ability off cooldown when laning her. Poke her with illaoiQ.png and illaoiW.png when grasp of the undying is up, and keep your illaoiE.png for when her jungler comes.
This lane can get really hard if she gets kills on you, so make sure to survive all ganks prior to level 6, or else you will have a bad time.

VS

Gnar

Medium

This one is a tricky one, since he has the tools to outplay you hard. When mini, he will try to whittle you down with gnarQ.pngand gnarW.png stacks. Try your best to avoid his harass. He is quite squishy and has no inbuild sustain though, so you can harass him pretty hard with illaoiQ.png. When he transforms into mega, disengage and abuse your range. He has quite some burst as mega, you don't really want to be fighting him when mega.

VS

Irelia

Hard

So this one here is rated as hard, but once you get to know how to play against her its not quite that hard. The thing is whatever you do, once she hits 6, she can duel you easily, and you can't really do much about that. Even before lvl6, she can trade you easily. What you want to do is illaoiE.pngher as often as you can, and harass her like this.

VS

Nasus

Easy

Pretty easy, make sure to harass him hard with illaoiQ.pngevery time he goes to last hit a creep.

VS

Quinn

Easy

Squishy champion really. As long as you stay behind minions to avoid getting blinded, you will have the edge over her. Your illaoiQ.pnghas more range than her auto attack, and you can always follow up a illaoiQ.png when she quinnE.png you. If you achieve to land several illaoiE.png, your lane is won.

VS

Riven

Medium

Run 14.png and start with 1029.png2003.png. So riven will always be a threat for you in the sense that with her hard cc combined with her burst, she will always have the opportunity to take you down with her jungler even though she is at 20% health and you are at 80%. What you want to do is harass her a LOT, land as many illaoiQ.png and illaoiE.png as you can, and have her farming under tower.

VS

Xin Zhao

Medium

So for this patch this guy has received quite the buff, so you don't want to trade with him straight on. His early game is not that strong however, and you can easily harass him with illaoiQ.png and illaoiE.png. Just pay attention as his 3rd xenzhaocombotarget.png interrupts your illaoiW.png.

Lane Phase Back to Top

Before level 2, don't pay attention to your passiveillaoipassive.png since you won't be using it anyways. Don't be afraid to roam a bit, it is not a problem not to have tentacles on your lane before level 2.

During lane phase, you will have to focus on farming and harassing your opponent. Don't use your spells to farm, or else you will run oom pretty fast. Once you hit 6, having your opponent struggling under their tower is great: you can easily 2v1 with your ult if their jungler comes. If you are being ganked, illaoiE.png their jungler and illaoiR.png when they engage you: the tentacles will smash once because of the vessel, and once for every illaoiW.png you land. Don't forget that your ult will also spawn an additionnal tentacle if you hit the spirit, so you will have 3 tentacles spawned, plus one or two from your passive.
