Summoner Spells Back to Top

 14.pngand 4.png are an option and i'd say you can use this 60% of the time. There is a new playstyle with leblanc where you can bring 12.png, build rylais, push in the wave constantly and roam; it is pretty good.  7.png, is rendered useless as leblanc has too much damage, burst and mobility to support the use of heal. 1.png would be used against someone like morgana, brand or lissandra if you're not confident about the match up. Can also be used into teams that have a lot of CC. 



New Runes Back to Top

Masteries Back to Top

Ferocity Tree

For the Ferocity tree, you'll start off with "Sorcery" because of the ability power it gives you and it'll build up as you progress further in the game. Next you have "Feast", which helps with extra sustain the lane in regards to health. Next is "Vampirism", which helps with extra sustain through spell vamp. The other option of ability power per level is nearly useless, as the amount it gives you is not high enough nor useful. The last one in the Ferocity tree is "Bounty Hunter", because in a game you'll surely kill more than the same target at least 3 times, which already surpasses "Oppressor" in usefulness.


Cunning Tree

First is "Savagery", which helps with last hitting, and is more useful than its partner, because 3% movement speed is near useless. The next on is "Secret Stash", Secret Stash allows you to trade more effectively in lane and allows for more sustain. Assassin brings barely any extra damage to the table(1.5% of 100 damage is 1.5 more damage..). This only means you have to make smarter decisions because you don't have the cookie to back you up. Also, this helps out assassinating someone later in the game. I feel like runic affinity isn't too important, but it depends on what you value most; a longer blue buff(40% CD for a longer time, for like 20 more seconds or so), or a reinforced early laning phase, and seeing how i value laning phase, i go with the cookie. The next mastery is "Meditation", which helps you with mana problems you might have early on. The removal of mana pots kind of hurts a bit because mana pots were used essentially to make up for missed spells and small mistakes/farming, but since they don't exist anymore, this mastery can be useful. HOWEVER, the mastery "Merciless" can also be used instead, but this depends on your preferences. The other mastery is "Dangerous Game". I mean, unless you're a support, i don't think you'll need the other one. It is also useful to stay alive after or during a fight. The next one is where i made the change between cooldown and scaling. The penetration in the Ferocity tree was no used because there were not enough points to get there because of more important things. "Percision" makes up for the penetration missed. The extra cooldown reduction is not substantial and can only be reached with blue buff, which is not consistent enough to warrant my approval of use. "Thunderlord's Decree" is the last mastery to unlock and a really important one. Leblanc's combos couple very well with the mastery and can deal substantial damage in laning phase and outside of laning phase. Another option could be "Stormraider's Surge", which can help in escaping after some burst.

Update. 
I have changed to assassin and to merciless. Assassin got a buff which makes it on par with the cookies. Merciless is better when used with assassin.

Update.
Put one point into meditation and 4 into merciless

Q max is a must now since W got nerfed. distorting in and using Q and then using your ult-Q to pop your passive is one way to trade. Trade with Q and chain in lane is also what you're looking for.

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

Core Items

    Boots can be completed after second item. this is when i normally do it. i rarely complete it after 3rd item, but it is still a choice. i do not buy cooldown boots often, but if you find that you need more cdr, then it's fine.
    First item sometimes, with the exception of abyssal rush if the enemy mid laner is heavy and does a lot of damage, ex. syndra.
    Rabadons 2nd, 3rd, or 4th. depending on the lead you acquire, your team comp or the champions you are facing(ex. they are squishy).
    Ludens can be bought if you are very ahead early. this will open up snowball potential, however you will be squishier without abyssal and have less mana without morellos'. Easier to snowball, but also easier to die.
    Void staff should be bought 2nd or 3rd ALWAYS.
    the only time i get zhonyas is either first item if i'm facing zed/talon/pantheon, or last item. As leblanc you want to get good at killing someone then getting out, if you zhonyas you'll probably be dying shortly afterwards regardless. you aren't a champion like viktor where people will be gunning for you, even if they do you are distorting away.
    This is recommended but red orb is good too so you can check for wards when assassinating
    90% of my games i buy refillable pot. i play aggressive and i end up buying more pots and it will not become worth it. this is 150 gold and is worth 3 normal pots, saves money in the long run and helpful against poking champs.
    Core build. This is the build that is most common and i almost always use: Morello's/gunblade, finish boots, void staff(rabadons sometimes 3rd), then rabadons if you haven't built it yet, then zhonyas.
    you're not always going to get gunblade first. sometimes you will not have backline access, and so you will need to just go morello's first.

Situational Items

    Situational build #1: abyssal scepter, morello's, you can finish boots now or after rabadons, rabadons, void staff, zhonyas. This build would be against heavy AP poke that you are not comfortable against. We are skipping the hextech glp800 because it's more of an early item, getting it after won't yield much of a benefit.
    if you're able to split push effectively. i don't usually build this but this is still viable

for some reason the builds don't stay in order once i save them but what you see is *not* the order in which you get the items. Please read below the items for the actual order.


Season 7:
builds are relatively the same except the addition of the rylais build with TP.

VS

Ahri

Medium

Bait out the taunt, or dodge it, then all in(If you can), basically. Applying early pressure is important to the match up. If early pressure isn't successful, the pressure over the lane, and the freedom you have to cs and roam and help out your jungler will not exist an extent. 


Opponent Elo : Gold. 

Thanks you to MR Grumpy Gills for helping me out :)

VS

Akali

Easy

If you are not careful when she hits 6, you will die. other than that, pretty easy to kill early. 

VS

Anivia

Hard

Ridiculous how this champion can shit you down, but if you get an early lead, it's not that bad, IF YOU CAN EVEN GET ONE. :D (see extreme situational build)

VS

Annie

Medium

Can vary on how well you trade in the matchup. Can be hard, can be medium.

VS

Aurelion Sol

Medium

Aurelion sol is close to being an easy matchup. But an average leblanc player would find it to be medium, simply because the stun and the orbs that spin around him can catch you off guard. sol's usually rush health and go into the GLP item, which makes him harder to kill by a small margin. If he gets ahead he can be hard to kill. He pushes the wave in fast so chances to kill him are minimal. He also roams better than you do, partially again, because of the fact that he pushes in the wave fast. As long as you dodge the orbs properly and dodge the stun well, you should be fine. if you have pressure, level 6 is pretty easy for you.

VS

Azir

Medium

Can poke you out a lot, and shove you under tower early, will need "situational build". Establishing early dominance is important; outplay otherwise. 



Opponent Elo: Diamond 2

VS

Brand

Medium

This match up can turn completely upside down if you are caught by the stun. If you are caught by it at level 6, he will most likely kill you. Use caution when approaching, but when his W is down, it is easier to screw with him.  

VS

Cassiopeia

Medium

hmm, can sway, depending on how well you dodge. Will need practice sidestepping if you want to play with match up, as well as caution when approaching. Only making it medium because of the fact that if you distort onto her, there isn't much she can do pre-6. When she hits 6, this match up will turn into "hard"

VS

Cho'Gath

Hard

Farm lane. Boring, early aggression is the only option you have, if you do not succeed before he hits level 5+, you just farm. unless you can get a gank. i put "hard", as in, it's hard to kill him, and if you get caught with his abilities about 3 times, you're probably dead. Situational build for this. 

VS

Corki

Medium

If you're not careful and get to close, you could take a fair amount of damage. if you're able to outplay the phosphorusbomb.png then you automatically win the trade. in the game i played i did a pretty good job of avoiding too much damage. unfortunately hexdrinker tilts me off the face of the earth and everyone on their team buys it along with aegis, sigh. Anyways we lose, but i found this to be a pretty good video showing how to face corki, enjoy (:


Opponent Elo: Diamond 2

VS

Diana

Hard

Tanky, soaks up your damage, and if she all in's you, you are probably gonna die unless you distort away, CAUTION: do not distort towards her if her Q is still up, if she lands it after wards, you're most likely dead. 

VS

Ekko

Medium

Can put out a lot of surprising damage, other than that it's not that bad, just dodge the yoyo. Zoning is pretty easy if you get an edge. he was afk for 1 minutes. That completely gave me the edge. Make sure to punish.


Opponent: Silver 1

VS

Ezreal

Medium

very god damn annoying, but very squishy. care for his ability that goes through minions. (bullshit). Also try to predict his Jump with your chain :)




VS

Fizz

Medium

Can swing either way, if harassed properly early on, can be pretty easy. Use abilities smartly, or he will all in you


Opponent Elo: Silver 2

Game was hard LOL.

VS

Galio

Hard

Farm lane, counters your existence in teamfights, extreme situational build.

VS

Gangplank

Medium

Laning phase can be really tanky. Avoid barrels at all costs mid-game, as it will do half your health. Dodge barrels and try to last hit them in lane. 

VS

Heimerdinger

Medium

Can put out a lot of damage, if you are not ready for it, you will take a lot of damage and be pushed back. Accurate farming is necessary, as well as the need for mana potions. If you get an early lead, then it shouldn't be that bad. 

VS

Irelia

Medium

Keep distance. harass cautiously 

VS

Jayce

Medium

Can be harassed when coming up to cs, and to auto attack you. If his shock blasts are not avoided, you will lose lane, make sure you stay on top of them.

VS

Karma

Medium

Can be annoying, but she is squishier than you think. If she snares, you snare her as well. If snare is about to go off, Q-W combo her. There is counter play to her abilities. 


Opponent Elo: Gold 3

VS

Karthus

Medium

Very squishy. Low elo can be easy to play against. You shouldn't be dying to karthus unless the player is very skilled, which is rare. Giving it a medium because low elo and high elo differ. 

VS

Kassadin

Hard

Considering putting this match up on Medium, just because it can sway both ways, but not equally. Kassadin has an overwhelming advantage when he hits 6. situational build. ganks would be of advantage as he's easy to gank pre 6



Opponents Elo: Diamond 3

VS

Katarina

Easy

Fairly easy matchup. At level 2 she won't be able to farm, zone her, she literally can't od anything. Q her and she will blow her shunpo because she will fear the combo. Then after she shunpo's, go in. or just zone.

VS

Kayle

Medium

Can be vulnerable at times. Play smart. Her auto's do hurt quite a bit early game so be careful not to over extend.


VS

Kennen

Medium

in between hard and medium for sure. Once he hits 6, it is pretty easy for him to all in. Hard to avoid incoming damage especially because of his W and Q. If early lead is gained, shouldn't be too hard.

VS

LeBlanc

Medium

lol

VS

Lissandra

Medium

ahhhh, as a lissandra main myself, i have an easy time beating lb's mid, but when i face lissandra it's easy-medium to beat her. I'll give it a medium. If you get to half health and she is 6, you will probably die. When you distort in, she can root you and do damage, careful where you distort to and when you do it. In the video i was able to best her in map pressure. Unfortunately, my top lane and bottom lane didn't do so well, so my efforts to roam and help out didn't help us to victory quite as planned. Mid-late she can keep pushing in the wave to turret to keep you mid, so roaming a lot is not efficient. Our jungler (hecarim) did not play so well, an unfortunate game really. anyways, here it is :D



Opponent Elo: Diamond 3
playbutton.png

VS

Lulu

Medium

Can be irritating. most of the time a farm lane, but if she over extends and misses her Glitter Lance, you should be able to take control. 

VS

Lux

Medium

If she lands her snare, it could ruin the lane for you, be wary of that. poke her down slowly and then all in later.

Opponent Elo: Diamond 4

VS

Malzahar

Hard

2 point and click nukes, silence, and pushes waves hard. Everything that counter you. LOL. might be able to kill him pre -6. if you can, you should be fine, otherwise just farm it out. In this video matchmaking set nme up against a challenger. it was fun to see how challengers play, unfortunately malzahar being the champ that he is, he was able to push in constantly and roam, which is what most malz players will do in higher elo. We would have won but top lane did not play very well, rip.


Opponent Elo: Challenger 591 lp



VS

Morgana

Medium

Can be a hard counter, but if played right, can take advantage. Care for snare in teamfights, can be game changing. In this game i did a relatively good job of avoiding game changing snares ! Late game i was able to get a lot of CS, get fed and take over mid game :)


Opponent Elo: Diamond 5

VS

Nidalee

Easy

She has low mobility. The only thing she can do is land a spear to do damage. If you are able to dodge even half the spears, you can will the lane. You shouldn't die in this lane unless you make a huge error. She is extremely squishy and it should be an easy win. The only thing that should be annoying is her heal. After you finish 3165.png, it shouldn't be that bad anymore.

VS

Orianna

Medium

Can be vulnerable to your abilities, approach with caution. Use distort wisely. In the video you see me taking advantage of her ball being off her head. and her lack of mobility to call jungler mid for easy kills. 


Opponent Elo: Diamond 3 (300 games on Ori)

VS

Pantheon

Hard

stupid. just farm and ask for ganks. 

VS

Riven

Medium

Don't get near her, once she expends her shield, she is relatively vulnerable, make sure to have an escape when she hits 6. 

VS

Swain

Medium

difficult to decide between medium and hard. Certain events can lead to it swaying in either direction. But i'd say swain has a slight advantage. don't get snared and don't stay around him for too long. 


Opponent Elo: Platinum 1

VS

Syndra

Medium

Dangerous, but no as hard as you think. the advantage goes to syndra however. if you get hit by 2 balls, you are a target for a stun or an all in, so make sure you dodge well. 



Opponent Elo: Diamond 4

VS

Talon

Hard

this one is also close to medium, but not quite. When he hits level 6, he can one shot you, nearly, or at least almost. Your burst can be dodged by his E. In the game below, there's a good example of how the tank meta is completely ridiculous. Plus it's a good example of the talon matchup.


Opponent Elo: Diamond 3

VS

Twisted Fate

Medium

Avoid the stun card and harass when he uses one of his cards. 


Opponent Elo: Diamond 4

VS

Veigar

Medium

Easy laning phase for the most part, when he hits 6, be very careful because he can one shot you. if it gets to a 40minute game, he can just press R and you're dead. sooooo, that's pretty balanced. 

VS

Vel'Koz

Medium

Avoid the knockup and distort his Q. If you aren't careful, you will get one shotted. 

VS

Viktor

Medium

can chunk, but if you are able to dodge one lazer, it is down for like 10 seconds, so have fun. 

VS

Vladimir

Medium

Can heal some of your damage, but not all of it, bring 3 potions to lane and one mana pot and you're fine (if you're getting poked). 

VS

Wukong

Hard

Can avoid a lot of your damage with his clone if you're not careful. Waiting for his clone to wear off can be punishing. Distorting in can leave you vulnerable.

VS

Xerath

Easy

Dodge his stun. that's it, you win :D He's immobile and squishy, all in him at some point 

VS

Yasuo

Hard

Very annoying, and can weave in and out of your abilities, make sure to use abilities rather slowly to make sure you land them, if you fall below half mana and he's at full health, thennn, tough luck :D


Opponent Elo: Diamond 4

VS

Zed

Medium

Can sway either way. Skill match up really, but it's a little easier for zed.Make sure to dodge as many shurikens as possible and zone early so he has to shuriken the minions. Alright this game was pretty fun. The zed played very cocky. Here you go:


Opponent Elo: Diamond 4

VS

Ziggs

Easy

Dodge the first bomb, then all in or zone. 

HOW TO TRIGGER ME. Back to Top

BUILD THE FOLLOWING:


3003.png

3027.png

3174.png



I do not recommend these items.

The General Early Game Back to Top

In the early game you have 2 options. One is to play safe if you're not confident in the matchup and you're getting pushed in, resulting in you having to wait for a gank and/or roam. Two, is to start doran's ring and to be aggressive, and create the pace of the game.


In the laning phase you have to feel the flow. The more you play games on Leblanc, the more natural things feel to you. Combos come to you naturally and eventually, as you get to know each match up in detail, your knowledge of your champion and your limitations increases. 

If you're getting camped early, you need to buy a ward, place it on your favourite side of the lane and hug that side if the lane is pushed. other than that, you need to last hit and make sure not to hit the minions when/if you're trying to harass. 

You can check out some roaming tips in the Tips section of guide ! Check out the Mid game guide to build on the early game.

The General Mid Game Back to Top

At this point, you will need identify two things. 1. how strong are you in comparison to the enemy champions. and 2. should i split push, or group with my team. You will have to group if your team is behind. however if you are able to split push, you should, so that your team can have a 4v3. If they lose that 4v3 the game is likely over. rip. Assassination opportunities can be found pretty easily at this stage since there isn't much MR.

The General Late Game Back to Top

In the late game, this is when you have around 4 items completed, and if you're fed you're probably being targeted in one way or another. You will want to either split push and attract multiple people bot while your team does baron, or find picks across the map. The new leblanc is a little weaker in teamfights due to the delay, but chain is pretty strong for peeling back.

Tips and Tricks/Leblanc Combos (Old Leblanc) Back to Top

Leblanc's ability to dash around specific areas and influence the map is enormous. If mastered, this champion can do wonders. In this specific section i'll try to talk about things you can do around the map, when to roam, how to deal with enemies if you're getting pressured hard, and how to combo in and out of laning phase. 

This first video will be Leblanc vs Ekko; Ekko showed up late to lane, so he was basically punished for the whole game. Your ability to punish people's mistakes is key. At one point of the game, Ekko had 9 cs while i had around 50.

Anyways, Enjoy :D There will be time stamps to outline specific decisions and occurrences within the game below :)

Ekko Vs Leblanc



Time Stamps


2:05 - Ekko shows up to lane late. I punish him by starting to zone. 

2:17 - I hit level 2 while he's still level 1. Take advantage of the disparity and pressure him out.

*Note: It's important to keep up with CS even when pressuring out opponent. Can be tough at first, but doable :)

3:45 - Ekko mis-positions and i punish him with combo: Q - W - E. he then proceeds to jump on me and mis yoyo. i won the trade !

4:08 - Distorted the wave to keep it balanced and continue pressure.

4:49 - Chain through the minion wave, sometime can catch the enemy off guard !

5:14 - Ekko goes aggressive, but Tahm is on the way so i stall regardless of the fact that i'm out of mana. He ends up getting away.

6:36 - I hit level 6, massive amount of pressure gained. 

6:42 - Ekko comes to close for CS, used combo: Q - W - R. Backed off then went back to my R distortion to land chain and get him really low. Sometimes you can go back to the chain to add more damage to your opponent or finish them off. Sometimes it's surprising to them. 

6:52 - Lag.

*Note: Don't hesitate to clear wave with your double distortion, it can open times to roam and ward up. 

8:15 - 30% CDR*

8:46 - I combo: W - R - Q - E to close the gap and chunk but i miss chain. This combo can be used to close gaps on opponents that playing scared. 

9:07 - The 3 remaining creeps of my wave are being pushed into him, as well as the new wave that's one the way, so i go to ward and scan bot lane to see if it's gankable. Opponent bot lane engages, perfect !

9:23 - I realize that Vayne is still relatively healthy but i know that i can kill her. I walk up to her and Q to bait out a tumble or a condemn. She condemns. I walk abit closer and she tumbles. so i combo shortly after the first Q: R - W - E. My passive pops so i have 1 second of relative safety. after it's over i go back to distortion position and auto+Q to finish her off. Nunu chases and i outplay with a Q+chain to play around his melee range, and he dies. Good so far !

9:50 - Ekko gets snared in river so i take that advantage to farm the creep wave a little. i knew i wasn't in any immediate danger because his flash was still down from earlier and he had no way of getting to me. 

*Note: Don't hesitate to distort to lane ! Your mana will regen by the time you get back. 

10:42 - I realize i an follow up on the morg binding, but the situation gets a little risky so i decide to combo: Q - R - E, instead of waiting for my Distort cooldown because he might have ulted me when he got out of the snare.

11:05 - i scan top and bot lane to see if roams are available. I spot bot lane go aggressive on Morgana so i ping on the way and Morg does a good job of holding them on her for me to get there. I then close the gap on vayne by using the combo: W - R - Q - E. Vayne ends up dying and Nunu gets caught out next. I Distort Q - E to hold him in place and that marks the end for Nunu.

12:52 - I decide to do some damage on the tower since there was nothing better to do. 

13:02 - I challenge Ekko for his CS, he ends up missing the rest of them. 

13:32 - Bot is getting dove so i head over there to see if i can do anything but i find that the pink ward is still there from earlier so i decide to back off because it was too risky. :(

14:47 - Harass Ekko with combo: W - Q - R - E. I land it all causing Ekko to go very low. He ults and i dostort back to dodge it. Trade won !

15:00 - Ekko thought he was safe beside Malphite so i punish him but flash Distorting, Q, Ignite to finish him off.

15:27 - Malphite stays under a low health tower, so i chain him to potentially get the kill after but he ends up flashing away :(

15:55 - I chunk Vayne on my way to blue buff but the next wave was coming in, so i cleared that, got blue, then went back to lane.

17:30 - 40% CDR *

17:39 - I distort over the wall to place a ward. Doing this can be very useful. 

17:52 - Lag.

19:02 - Tahm and Yorick ping on there way so i take my R distort back near Irelia and chain her to hold her for them. I know Malphite and Irelia can't kill me, even if i got ulted because they don't have any damage. 

19:10 - Irelia gets away, Malphite dies

19:48 - I go around down to the opponent's side of the jungle to scan the bush so i can set up for any future assassinations.

*Note: Sweeper is important on Leblanc since assassination requires you to stay stealth.

20:15 - Ekko is Pushed up too far, i punish him for it, REVENGE. I combo: Q - R. He flashes, so i flash and follow up with: W. He ults back so i take my Distort back and chain, Q to proc the Q and get the kill. 

20:51 - Enemy bot lane overextends. i go down to deal with it. I combo Nunu with: Q - W - E to hold him in place and he ends up dying. 

22:03 - Rabadons finished, huge power spike.

22:25 - Ekko getting solo'd by Tahm. Ekko tries to get away so i Double distort and finish him with Q. 

22:59 - I scan top and bot lane and realize that they don't need help at that moment. Do i decide to push mid.

23:36 - ekko decides to engage me after his tower is about to die. So i finish off the tower and combo: Q - R - W. He lives with like 50 HP and ults. He ends up living because Vayne shows up and ruins the fun :( 

24:15 - Ekko trying to run away from Tahm. I finish him off with double distort.

--- Nothing much happens after that and they FF. GG. 

Tips and Tricks/Leblanc Combos 2 (Old Leblanc) Back to Top

Syndra Vs Leblanc




Time Stamps


1:09 - Try to always open up with W+auto attack, this helps you start the pressure in lane.

1:36 - i start to weave in and out to dodge her Q. she will want to try it eventually, so stay on your toes at all times.

1:47 - I Q her and hesitate to W in because i'm respecting the fact that she might have gotten E, which would cancel my W. After about a second, i noticed she didn't get E because if she did have it, she would have used it the second i used Q because she's expecting me to W in.

2:23 - Here you notice that i need one more minion to hit level 3. So as i'm about to last hit it, i walk up to utilize the advantage.

2:25 - i used combo W-Q-E before she was able to push me out of range. She gets rooted and flashes. There is a world where syndra dies here, but it is too risky, so i back off.

note*: i bought negatron cloak first, which is what i usually do because syndra can be very deadly if you do not do it. If i first blood her before my first back, then i do not rush it first.

4:33 - Syndra picks up a minion. Now, luckily this ability is pretty easily anticipated unless they instantly pick it up and throw it at you. So when she's about to throw it at you, you can W out and trade(you don't always have to), which would win you the trade. I do this shortly.

5:11 - I walk towards her and expect that she will Q under me, so i W at her which dodges her Q and Q-Auto to proc thunderlords and go back to the distortion to win trade.

5:22 - I'm about to hit 6 off the minion about to die. My W is coming up very soon, her flash is down, and i have flash+ignite. Realistically, she was 100% dead to me 10 seconds before this point. 

5:25 - I flash W onto her with the intention of Q-R-ignite, which would kill her. However i didn't press R hard enough on my keyboard so the kill was a little delayed, but you get the point :p. Not only that, but my flash-W was a little slower than usual, but whatever, she had no flash so she couldn't flash out of it.

7:10 - Syndra is playing too safe so i decide to push in the wave with my ult. When you push in the wave, you have more freedom to roam because you'll have time before the next minion wave comes in and you get positioning advantage to roam first if something happens, so i wait to see if any opportunities come up. 

7:37 - I spot lee trying to dive bottom so i head to help him out. Cait flashes in to try to kill lee so i use the combo W-Q-R-E to kill cait and head back to lane.

8:01 - I take the safe route back over the wall because Syndra would most likely be waiting for me in the bush, it turns out i was right.

9:24 - I try to use combo R-Q-W on syndra but she E's me away, unfortunate. This combo is the best combo for poking because it is the most reliable and puts you in range for chain if you decide to use it.

9:29 - I see she's trying to come up and Q me or something, so i use E-Q and juke to the left, which allows me to dodge both her abilities and win trade. if i had ult here she would be dead.

Note*: in the first few levels on lane phase, syndra's Q is around a 4 second cooldown. At level 6+ you can expect it to be on about a 3 second cooldown. So expect a Q out her every 3-5 seconds, which will help you dodge better.

9:59 - I W the wave and then R onto her and try to Q-E her but i missed the chain unfortunately. I would have been able to kill her if i landed it.

11:07 - i Wait for syndra to clear the wave with her E so that if she does i can go in and chunk her. She used her E, so i W-R to get to her, then Q-E. i land it all but she has bought MR so i don't have enough damage to kill her.

12:15 - Lee gets caught out and dies. Moirgana tries to get onto me with ult but walk out of the snare range and W onto her to ignite and kill. I keep walking to the opposite side and knew that syndra would throw her ability at my distortion position, so i wait for her to throw it first then go back to the spot.

note*: You can use your ult ot clear waves often, especially once you reach level 11; the cooldown is not that long.

15:16 - i go to help out lee sin, yasuo dies and i chain hecarim. i Q him and then W him shortly after to get the kill. 

15:57 - I try to kill cait by distorting towards her and Q-R-ignite but i couldn't get into ignite range and she lives, then soraka dies shortly after.

17:17 - We start to seige so i go behind the wall near their turret and go in to combo using W to get closer and then Q-R-E-ignite and kill her.

note*: when seiging, your objective is to pop in and out ot poke them or try ot get a kill. you will have to be careful of some CC though.

Not much happens after that and they FF. gg.


Pros and Cons of Playing Leblanc Back to Top

Pros

  • High mobility, able to chase and/or get away.
  • High burst damage, able to pick off carries or almost instantly chunk people out.
  • Decent pick into almost all mid champions if played well. 
  • The ability to reliably pick up kills from behind.
  • Good synergy with champions that bring CC to the table.

Cons

  • Can be squishy, especially if behind in a game.
  • If you fall too far behind, your damage will not be sufficient enough.
  • High skill cap. Pulling off the right combos and doing them smoothly and accurately takes a lot of practice.
  • Slightly mana heavy and requires some knowledge of mana management
