Item Usage
  • Cooldown reduction is the strongest stat on LeBlanc OriginalSquare LeBlanc. You must reach the cap as soon as possible using Flat Cooldown reduction runes or itemization.
  • Doran's Ring item Doran's Ring is a great starting item on LeBlanc OriginalSquare LeBlanc, as she can make effective use of all the stats it gives. The extra health especially is very useful during trades due to her mid range, and the on-kill passive has fantastic synergy with the bounces on Sigil of Malice Sigil of Malice.
  • Dark Seal item The Dark Seal is dangerous to start with, but it can pay off if you're able to keep yourself alive or if your teammates can protect you well. However, you should never start with this item if you aren't completely confident that you can win lane without dying once.
  • Luden's Echo item Luden's Echo is a good item to rush on LeBlanc OriginalSquare LeBlanc, offering mana sustain, ability power, and cooldown reduction. The passive portion of the item also helps out with burst or waveclear.
  • Banshee's Veil item Banshee's Veil and Zhonya's Hourglass item Zhonya's Hourglass are good against magic and physical damage, respectively.
  • Both Ionian Boots of Lucidity item Ionian Boots of Lucidity and Sorcerer's Shoes item Sorcerer's Shoes are good boots for LeBlanc OriginalSquare LeBlanc.
  • Mejai's Soulstealer item Mejai's Soulstealer can be especially powerful, particularly if mid-laning. Be warned that due to her already snowbally nature, getting killed while using this item may cause her to fall even earlier in the game than necessary.
  • As an ability power carry, Rabadon's Deathcap item Rabadon's Deathcap is an essential buy.
  • Hextech Protobelt-01 item Hextech Protobelt-01 boosts LeBlanc OriginalSquare LeBlanc's mobility even more, while offering more cooldown reduction and health.
  • Many enemies have magic resistance that increases as they level up. Buying a Void Staff item Void Staff as a last or second-to-last item will help LeBlanc OriginalSquare LeBlanc's spells deal significantly more damage.
Countering
  • Be wary of LeBlanc OriginalSquare LeBlanc's damage potentials when she has you Sigil of Malice marked.
  • Presuring her into using both her Distortion Distortion can set her up for a gank by a teammate from which she can't escape, as they both have long cooldown.
  • LeBlanc OriginalSquare LeBlanc is extremely squishy so she is very vulnerable to hard crowd controls, such as stuns and suppression, and focus. Taking her out of the fight early prevents her from being able to burst down a carry.
  • Avoid minion waves that was Sigil of Malice marked while you've been marked as well. Sigil of Malice Sigil of Malice or Mimic Sigil of Malice Mimic Sigil of Malice will bounces on you and deals massive damage.
  • Both Ethereal Chains Ethereal Chains and Mimic Ethereal Chains Mimic Ethereal Chains are strong disengage tools. Create distance to avoid being Ethereal Chains rooted and seek to engage afterwards.
  • All of LeBlanc OriginalSquare LeBlanc's spells deal magic damage, therefore any form of magic resistance will mitigate her damage significantly.
    • Banshee's Veil item Banshee's Veil offers a spell shield to negate 1 spell from LeBlanc OriginalSquare LeBlanc. Its magic resistance and health will help tremendously in surviving LeBlanc OriginalSquare LeBlanc's burst, while possibly blocking LeBlanc OriginalSquare LeBlanc's initiation. As such, it is a recommended buy if going against LeBlanc OriginalSquare LeBlanc.
  • After LeBlanc OriginalSquare LeBlanc uses her Distortion Distortion and Mimic Distortion Mimic Distortion, she is at her most vulnerable as her damage and mobility are both dependent upon it.
  • Do not be tricked by her Mirror Image mimics, try to save up abilities like ultimates during this situation, as the Mirror Image mimics can be used as a shield against certain attacks and abilities, making them get wasted.
    • A common technique against LeBlanc OriginalSquare LeBlanc is to play a champion that can easily guess where the Real LeBlanc OriginalSquare LeBlanc and the clone of herself is. Fiora OriginalSquare Fiora & Zed OriginalSquare Zed are considered the best choices, because Grand Challenge Grand Challenge & Death Mark Death Mark can let them easily guess which is the Real LeBlanc and which is the clone of herself before using Mimic.
    • Another strategy on guessing the real LeBlanc OriginalSquare LeBlanc is by using ignite while bursting her down or checking the particles of the real LeBlanc OriginalSquare LeBlanc for easier guess.
  • Watch out when you see LeBlanc OriginalSquare LeBlanc missing from her lane. Her gank potential is very good and may result in you dying in a 2v3 or 2v4 fight.
    • Remember warn your teammates, when LeBlanc OriginalSquare LeBlanc leaves your lane.
  • LeBlanc OriginalSquare LeBlanc is surprisingly dangerous, especially when assassinating low-health champions due to Sigil of Malice Sigil of Malice, so beware.
  • Lissandra OriginalSquare Lissandra is probably the best counter to LeBlanc OriginalSquare LeBlanc for two reasons. First Lissandra OriginalSquare Lissandra can outpoke LeBlanc OriginalSquare LeBlanc in the laning phase thanks to Ice Shard Ice Shard and second, Lissandra OriginalSquare Lissandra can use Frozen Tomb Frozen Tomb to negate LeBlanc OriginalSquare LeBlanc's burst.
  • LeBlanc OriginalSquare LeBlanc is notorious for being able to burst down AP mid laners. However, because she specializes on bursting one target, having your jungler gank during her dives will cripple her aggression significantly and cause her to fall off prematurely.
  • Warding brushes will make it harder for LeBlanc OriginalSquare LeBlanc to juke using Distortion Distortion.
