Start W in lane, when Grasp of Undying is ready, you can W onto enemy to proc it and walk out

If behind, max E > Q > W

Q max gives better wave clear / shorter cooldown Q

Maxing E is very very strong, full maxed E with Deaths Dance and Steraks does 75% damage to champs
Zeds ult only does 30% / 40% / 50%

In the video, you can see Zed and Wukong get 1 shot, due to 75% damage to spirit + them getting hit at the same time

With 40% cdr in build, W will be on a 2.6 sec cooldown anyways
And during your ult W is on a 2 sec cooldown no matter what.

Cho'Gath

Medium

Start 2031.png+1036.png 
Then 1001.png3065.png > 3812.png3111.png > 3053.png > 3078.png > 3143.png


He is stronger early, so focus on farm, once you have some MR + HP you can trade evenly. Once you have visage, he shouldn't be able to do much to you 

1st item options
3812.png Vs 3065.png = Visage is safer, but if you get ahead or have control of lane, deaths dance can work perfectly fine followed by 3053.png. All depends how the lane is going. 
I usually agree to start visage, and if things go better then planned switch to deaths dance 1st

VS

Darius

Medium

Careful of his early game levels 1-3, he can destroy you before you get all 3 abilities


You will probably have to give up a few cs and try to freeze wave infront of turret, 
this way you can pull spirit under turret and chunk him enough that you can farm safely

VS

Garen

Medium

VS

Graves

Medium

3047.png help a lot, since most of his damage is from auto attacks

-2033.png > 3047.png > 3053.png > 3078.png

VS

Kindred

Hard

Hard jungler to go against

She is very mobile and ranged, 2 things that counter Illaoi
She can dodge your E and Q with her hop

I recommend avoiding fights w her unless you have a big gold / exp lead on her

VS

Nasus

Medium
I find shoving him under turret is easier, just make sure to ward and be careful for ganks


3071.png >1001.png>  3053.png > 3047.png

- Get 3071.png to counter his 3025.png armor
3047.png for some Armor and reduce his auto dmg
3053.png for better all ins and 1v2's

VS

Olaf

Medium
3047.png help a lot, since a lot of his damage comes from auto attacks
3053.png the shield is great versus his all ins and true damage
3143.png the attack speed slow is very strong against Olaf

- Do your best to dodge Axes, avoid standing near low hp minions, as Olafs like to farm + poke at the same time

- Be careful of his all in, always be near a tentacle or 2, if he lands an axe and you have no tentacle up, he will all in you and you are dead

VS

Riven

Medium
3812.png + 3047.png

Respect her damage, she is stronger early, you will have to miss some cs and find safe ways to farm. 

Safe means, always being near tentacle and always being ready to back off, the more dashes she uses to get onto you, the less damage she does. So keep backing till she gets onto you, then you trade back. Try to Auto > W > Q and back off. 
If she dashed into you with her shield, wait till it wears off before using W > Q

General Tips Back to Top

Do NOT fight when your 3053.png shield is down, you are very weak


Teleport ganks on Illaoi are TERRIBLE, she is territorial and needs to setup tentacles ahead of time,
Her ideal scenario is split pushing and pressuring turrets via her strong wave clear / damage / 1v2 potential
