Ability explanation

Passive- Mirror image


Whenever LeBlanc is belowarrow-10x10.png 40% health, she creates a controllablearrow-10x10.png clone of herself for 8 seconds with 53 + (17 × LeBlanc's level) less health. She and her clone become stealthed for 1 second.

This spell is very useful for escaping your enemies and outplaying them. Since patch 4.17 your stealth now lasts for 1 whole second with is more helpful than you can imagine. Be sure to utilize this to the maximum effectiveness.

Q-Sigil of malice

LeBlanc projects an orb towards her target, dealingarrow-10x10.png magic damage and marking the target for 3.5 seconds.  If the target takes damage from one of LeBlanc's abilities, the mark will trigger, dealingarrow-10x10.png BONUSarrow-10x10.png magic damage.

I max this spell second because W outranks it. Whenever you casts Q always try to get off the 2nd proc for a good chunk if you can. Q and W will be your main tradingarrow-10x10.png spell early.

W-Distortion

FIRST CAST: LeBlanc rapidly dashes to a target location, damaging enemies within a 250-radius area and leaving behind a return pad. LeBlanc can activate Distortion againarrow-10x10.png in the following 4 seconds.

2 SECOND CAST: LeBlanc blinks to the return pad.

I max this spell first for the tradingarrow-10x10.png, waveclear, mobility and a shorter cooldown (more q+w combos). After patch 4.17 you have 4 seconds to go back to your first cast which is great for escaping and juking.

E-Ethereal Chains

LeBlanc flings illusionary chains in a line, dealing magic damage and leashing for 1.5 seconds to the first enemy unit it hits. While the leash persists, the target's movement speed is decreased by 25%. If LeBlanc remains within 1000-range of the target for the full duration, the target takes additional magic damage and is Root icon rooted for 1.5 seconds.

This spell is amazing for chasing and escaping but is maxed last because Q and W offerarrow-10x10.png more early-mid. Knowing the range of the chain tether is vital to maximizing the full potential of the spell.

R-Mimic

LeBlanc re-casts the spell she previously cast. The mimicked spell's effects are the same, but the damage is replaced with a different amount based on the rank of Mimic.

Put a point into this spell whenever you can. This spell is flexible and knowing which spell to mimic will really separate the good Leblancs from the great ones.

magic damage 

Core

3020_32.png
Very important, the magic pen makes you deal damage to all targets and get though the carries 1 or 2 defensive items.

3165_32.png
Efficient item, reduces healing by 50% on targets belowarrow-10x10.png 40% hp and is great early to snowball.

3089_32.png
Must build for every ap mid, increases ap by 140%. Once you have Deathcap and Morellonomicon you will be able to insta anyone if you land a good combo (in 20-30 minute range).

3135_32.png
This item guarantees that you will kill any squishy and will help with the tankier champs.

3157_32.png
Helps when you get dove or focused, gives nice amount of armor and ap and outplaying potential
(exarrow-10x10.png. using active against Cass or Zed ult).

3001_32.png
Gives good mr against magic damage and some ap.

3102_32.png
Good against poke, gives nice amount of hp.

3026_32.png
Passive is great for team fighting, pretty useless after passive.

Situational 

3041_32.png
A bit better after buffs, only get this if you're ahead and can snowball without dying.

3136_32.png
You can get this after Morellonomicon or Deathcap for its good base stats. Do not upgrade this item instead hold on to it until the 6 item and sell it.

3174_32.png
Get this when you're against a lot of magic damage only (exarrow-10x10.png. Maokai, Corki, Amumu, Sona, Lissandra).

3023_32.png
You can get this to chase, its better since the buffs.

3111_32.png
You can get this when you are losing to an ap.

Not ideal

3027_32.png
The reason you do not want Rod of Ages is because it doesn't fit Leblanc and to make full use of it you have to buyarrow-10x10.png it early to start the stacks, which replaces Morellonomicon.

3100_32.png
This isn't idea for anything except a cheese back door, reason being is that you won't be needing auto attacks in the later game when your combos will already do the jobarrow-10x10.png faster and more efficient.

3116_32.png
It may seem like a good choice with the 100 ap and good healtharrow-10x10.png, but the fact is that all the core items outrank it and the passive goes to waste since you already have your chains to chase.

3003_32.png3151_32.png3152_32.png
These are useless and don't fit Leblanc.

3285_32.png
Fun item and it has 120 ap, you can use this to replace GA or abysll for more damage but be careful with your health.

2139_32.png
You can get this mid game to push faster and have a little boost of damage for 400 gold and also late game when your close or done your full build.

When to pick Leblanc Back to Top

You can always first pick her if you're confident!!

-When the enemy has at least 2 squishy targets (blowing everything on a tank isn't ideal).
-Your teammates can snowball (you roam for them).
-The enemies are not too mobilearrow-10x10.png (you can still insta them if you're quick enough).
-Your teammates need good burst or assassination potential (exarrow-10x10.png. against a Trist or Cait).
-You want to bully the enemy mid laner

Pros and cons Back to Top

Pros

-Good bully
-Picks off carriesarrow-10x10.png with ease
-Snowballs hard
-Extremely mobilearrow-10x10.png
-Not too item dependant
-Cool passive
-Amazing late game nuke
-Decent CC with E and R
-Intimidating when fed

Cons

-Main harass is also used to clear waves
-Squishy
-Bad when behind
-Laugh is evil
-Dance could be betterarrow-10x10.png
-E is a bit tricky to land
-Very squishy (watch for stuns)
-Requires a good amount of practice and is pretty demanding mechanically to maximize the champs efficiency.

Power Spikes Back to Top

This will explain the power spikes of Leblanc

Lvl 3-When you have all your abilities you can often go for a kill if the enemy mid laner is low enough

Lvl 6-When you have your ult and aarrow-10x10.png massive power spike and burst spike you can go for an all in

Morellonomicon-When you get your first item it gives you a power spike in ap allowing you to all in with good chance of successarrow-10x10.png

Lvl 11-When you get your second point in ult you get another spike in burst making assassinations easier

Needlessly large rod-Gives you a good spike in ap 

Other item completions-Gives ap and a good power spike

Lvl 16-3rd point in ult makes killing any carry pretty easy

Things to always do as Leblanc Back to Top

-Roam

-Follow your lane when they roam
-Ward the sides
-Look for stragglers
-Help your team with objectives
-Make sick playsarrow-10x10.png :)

Tips and Tricks Back to Top

Passive

-If your enemy is smart they can click on your clone and figure out which one is fake, the one without items is fake.

-You can move your passive to trick your opponents (exarrow-10x10.png. moving it to safety while you run somewhere else and wait for cds.

-If aarrow-10x10.png vital spell is on cd don't aa or use another spell and trick them with the tip above while you wait for the cd and kill them.

Q-Sigil of Malice

-The 2nd part of Q can proc with any part of your other spells (ex. E > Q > E).

-Since the silence nerf it will be a lot harder to tradearrow-10x10.png and kill so time your engages properly


W-Distortion

-With your W, R, and flash you can have up to 5 dashes which makes Leblanc extremely mobile, hard to chase and great at juking.

-With 40% cdr your W is on a 6 second cd.

-Lvl 5+ to clear the ranged minions you will have to aa each on before you 1 shot them with w unless you have a lot of ap.

-Be creative with your juking and watch out for people throwing skillshots at your first W place, try to see where the skillshot is going before you either press W or keep walking to dogde the skillshot. 

E-Ethereal Chains

-Your E tether has a 1000 range which is useful to get the snare off, know the range and position yourself accordingly to get the snare off safely.

-The 2nd part of Q can be proc'd with the 2nd part of your E which is useful in different situations (ex. you're chasing and your q is off cooldown in 1.5 seconds you throw your E to slow them first then Q when its off cd still getting the 2nd part of Q and killing the target).

R-Mimic

-When your chasing you can use E and mimic the E with R to chase easier 
(R won't do less damage because you didn't max E)

-Your ult damage for every spell is equal, but the effects are not keep this in mind when you are playing.


Main Combos Back to Top

For burst on low hp

Q > R > W is the quickest combo.

For harassing from a distance

W > R > Q > E if your lane opponent is playingarrow-10x10.png safe from a distance (the first W doesn't have to hit).

For chasing

W > Q > E > R > Q if you don't R right after your E you can get the snare wait til its almost gone R againarrow-10x10.png and Q.

Cool looking combo

W > E and W right after you E so the chain looks like its coming from where you were before you use the 2nd W, combine it with your passive and its pretty effective for confusing your opponent when they chase you.

Early Game lvls1-8 Back to Top

What to do from minutes 1-10 

During the early game/laning phase you want to get as much farm as you can 60 cs at 10 mins at least, while denyingarrow-10x10.png, harassing and killing your lane opponent if you can.

You want to start off by using W once just once to harass with 1 or 2 autos while pushing and get lvl 2 first, then put a point into Q and give 'em a Q+W combo with a few autos. You can Q+W one more time before getting lvl 3 but don't go for anything less of a Q+W combo its not worth the mana. Then at lvl 3 you can skill E, W then E+Q and ignite if you are close to getting a kill.

Only go for harass when they are going for a minion or you don't have any low minions, this ensures that your lane opponent will either lose a minion while harassing you or you get free harass.

The rest of the lane is just harass while you have no minions and farm.

You want to ward the sides of the lane to watch out for ganks. Be careful when using W to harass it may leave you vulnerable to ganks if you use it prematurely or while your far from your tower. Around 3 mins you should ward and play a bit safer until you see the jungler show up in another lane, then you want to harass while you're safe.

If you have your opposing laner under the tower and the enemy jungler shows up somewhere else, go for a really quick Q+W combo and W back. To make sure the tower wont hit you, you should go for the combo right as the tower starts its aa animation on a minion.

At level 6 you can all in if you have enough mana for a full spell rotation.

If your opposing laner goes back and you're still healthy and have enough mana for a full spell rotation you can roam top or bot if its gankable and try to make a move there. Watch out for wards and path to the sides of the walls or use W to jump to a nearby bush that is not warded. If the jungler took the scuttle its best to just back and W back to lane quickly. But you should always look for the opportunity to roam and get your teammates going.

Mid Game lvls9-14 Back to Top

What to do from minutes 10-30

During the mid game you want to keep your farm up 120 cs at 20 mins at least, to achieve it you want to push mid and bot lane minions get blue and farm a jungle camp (not too many, junglers need to eat too). Other than farming you want to buyarrow-10x10.png a pink and use it near drag, use your warding totem near drag or another ward if you switched to sweepers. Also pick off squishies by establishing vision controlarrow-10x10.png in their bot side jungle and snowball. Also don't forget to take scuttles they are useful for drag control as you can chase or runaway way faster with it.

Mid game is about objectives, group for drag if you can and try to pick off a carry or get them low before you drag or fight to swing the odds in your favor. Most drags are taken after picks or team fights. If you can sneak a drag or your teammates get kills you can drag. You should coordinate with your top laner if he has tele or not, but tell him to tp early to the fight if he has it.

If you have a weak team fighting team but instead have a good siege team set one up and ward areas were they enemy team can flank you and team fight. If you can poke and get someone low enough set up a drag.

If you have a good split pushing team you can send your split pusher to take towers and duel someone of the enemy team top lane, if they can get 2 or more people to come after then do not hesitate to do drag.

Mid game is about taking the outer and a few inners towers while having dragon and vision control. In order to do so you should all buy a pink ward and use it in good places were it will be hard to find, pick off stragglers as a group and take the objectives. 

Late Game lvls15-18 Back to Top

What to do minutes 30-end

In the late game you have to be very careful about your positioning. One false step and you could give up an inhb, drag or baron as the death timers are very long. 

If you have 3 core items finished by 30 mins you will be able to blow up most carriesarrow-10x10.png with 1 good combo for the rest of the game, as long as you keep up in items.

If you have a spare space use it for a pink, you should either get the pink ward upgrade on your warding totem or the better sweepers and establish vision control near both baron and drag. Take the scuttles there, tradearrow-10x10.png baron for drag if you can unless its their 5th and try to sneak some barons with good vision, but back off if they come and barons still realitivily high hp.

Late game is about picking people off, taking barons, vision control near barons and pushing lanes out





Teamfighting Back to Top

Teamfighting as Leblanc isn't as bad as people make it out to be, especially with her assassinations potential.


In teamfights you need to either peel for your adc with your chains and chip away at the front line or come from a blind spot to assassinate their carries with proper vision controlarrow-10x10.png.

Conclusion/About me Back to Top

My ign is noobman06 I am currently plat 1 on the NA server after the reset and was diamond 5 season 5. I've been playingarrow-10x10.png since season the end of season 1 and playingarrow-10x10.png ranked since 3. Leblanc is my main mid and one of my favorite champs. Shes a high mechanical playarrow-10x10.png making champ and I love playing her. Fooling your enemies is one of the funniest things. I've been maining her for 2 seasons and have the mistletoe skinarrow-10x10.png for her.


This guide is to teach you the strengths and weaknesses of Leblanc, combos, what to do the whole game and how to build. Whether you are an avid Leblanc player or a newbie to her I am sure you can take something from this guide.

If you love to insta squishies like Teemo or Tristana (I hate yordles :>) have a ton of mobility and play making potential as well as showing off a bit, then I recommend you to play Leblanc and read this guide.

Thanks for reading my guide, I hope you further or begin your knowledge on Leblanc from this guide. If you have any questions in particular leave a comment and I'll be happy to respond.

Thank you for reading my guide and feel free to leave a like and a comment it helps out a lot, if you have any question ask away and I will try to answer whenever I can. ANY FEEDBACK IS APPRECIATED :)
