*{{ci|LeBlanc}} is a prime candidate for a solo lane due to her high burst damage and her need to level up quickly. {{ai|Distortion|LeBlanc}} also provides her with a deceptively large radius of threat.
 
**{{ai|Sigil of Silence|LeBlanc}} is your main harassment tool, with good range and damage.
 
**{{ai|Distortion|LeBlanc}} is an effective method of harrassment, as re-casting the spell will cause you to flash back to your casting position, giving an opportunity to deal damage with minimal risk of taking significant damage.
 
**Combining {{ai|Sigil of Silence|LeBlanc}} and {{ai|Distortion|LeBlanc}} allows you to deal {{ai|Distortion|LeBlanc}}'s proc damage as well as silence the enemy for a safe retreat.
 
*{{ai|Distortion|LeBlanc}} can be used as an escape mechanism as it can pass through thin walls.
 
**{{ai|Distortion|LeBlanc}} can also be used to "juke" enemies by dashing to one location, running, then using the second activation to return to the casting point.
 
**Never be afraid to use {{ai|Mimic|LeBlanc}} to double-{{ai|Distortion|LeBlanc}} out of a gank. Combined with {{si|Flash}}, this should make any ganks on {{ci|LeBlanc}} difficult.
 
*{{ai|Distortion|LeBlanc}} can also be used as a ganking tool as it can dash through enemies and has a second activation, that allows you to blink back.
 
**{{ai|Distortion|LeBlanc}} can be used for turret diving, because {{ci|LeBlanc}} can jump in for a kill under the turret, and teleport back to her location. Just make sure that everything is done within 3 seconds since the teleport location will be lost after 3 seconds and you may end up being killed by the turret.
 
**{{ci|LeBlanc}} can also towerdive by casting {{ai|Distortion|LeBlanc}} through a wall, unleash her combo and quickly blink back out. Keep in mind how quick you should be to cast your combo and how much [[health]] you and the enemy has. Don't forget the 3 seconds needed to retain the teleport location. Towerdiving from behind a wall can also be done in conjunction with {{si|Flash}}.
 
*After the 500 AP Threshold, using {{ai|Ethereal Chains|LeBlanc}} and {{ai|Mimic Ethereal Chains|Leblanc}} will actually do more damage than her sigil mimic combo.
 
*{{ai|Mirror Image|LeBlanc}} is best used as an escape mechanism or a decoy as it does not deal damage, but still deals on-hit effect damage (like {{Item_icon|Madred's Bloodrazor}}).
 
*{{ai|Mirror Image|LeBlanc|Mirror Image's}} clone acts like a pet. It will take commands similarly to {{ci|Annie|Annie's}} {{ai|Summon Tibbers|Annie}}, and will stand around or auto attack if no orders are given. It is wise to move it for the means of confusing the opponent, as a stationary clone clearly betrays the real {{ci|LeBlanc}} to the enemy.
 
** <span style="font-style: normal; ">Remember to use ALT+RIGHT-CLICK to move your </span>{{ai|Mirror Image|LeBlanc|Mirror Image's}}<span style="font-style: normal; "> clone.</span>
 
** {{ai|Mirror Image|LeBlanc|Mirror Image's}} clone is a champion type unit and therefore can also be hit by abilities only able to target champions such as {{cai|Ace in the Hole|Caitlyn}}. Take advantage of this by trying to encourage your enemies to use their powerful champion targeting ultimates on your clone by putting yourself out of site and controlling your clone like she were the original.
 
** Keep in mind that your clones auto-attacks deal no damage which can give her away if an enemy notices this.
 
*If you are being chased, throw {{ai|Ethereal Chains|LeBlanc}} on the pursuer for the slow and potential snare, giving you a better chance of escaping.
 
*If you have used {{ai|Ethereal Chains|LeBlanc}} while you're chasing a single enemy, use {{ai|Mimic Ethereal Chains|LeBlanc}} to snare the enemy again and to insure the kill.
 
*The second damaging part of {{Ai|Ethereal Chains|LeBlanc}} can also trigger the silence from {{Ai|Sigil of Silence|LeBlanc}}.
 
**Additionally, casting {{Ability_icon|Ethereal Chains}} and then {{Ability_icon|Sigil of Silence}} before the snare activates deals a good amount of burst damage and allows for further damage, possibly from {{Ability_icon|Distortion}} or {{Ability_icon|Mimic Sigil of Silence}}.
 
*When you end up in a team fight, you should consider utility of your spells over damage, and consider using {{ai|Ethereal Chains|LeBlanc}} as your {{ai|Mimic|LeBlanc}} spell for a double slow and longer snare.
 
*Do not use {{ai|Mimic|LeBlanc}} on a champion that has a spell shield. Use a basic ability to break the shield first, or wait for another way to break the shield.
 
*Chaining {{ai|Sigil of Silence|LeBlanc}} with {{ai|Mimic|LeBlanc}} can provide good harassment and long silence periods early-mid game and can shut down troublesome casters later on.
 
*{{Ai|Sigil of Silence|LeBlanc}} then {{ai|Distortion|LeBlanc}} is the most reliable source of damage, since the duration of {{ai|Distortion|LeBlanc}} is long enough for you to escape without putting yourself out of position. But {{Ai|Sigil of Silence|LeBlanc}} then {{Ai|Ethereal Chains|LeBlanc}} is the safest source of damage, which gives you 4 seconds of powerful disables to kite enemy champions.
 
*By selecting a target to cast {{ai|Sigil of Silence|LeBlanc}} on while out of range, you can use {{ai|Distortion|LeBlanc}} to close the gap, then use it again to return to safety. Doing this can extend the range at which you can safely harass and ward enemy champions from gold or experience.
 
*Activating {{ai|Distortion|LeBlanc}} followed by {{ai|Ethereal Chains|LeBlanc}} and then using {{ai|Sigil of Silence|LeBlanc}} and {{ai|Mimic Sigil of Silence|LeBlanc}} can deal high amount of damage.
 
*It is best to save {{ai|Mimic Sigil of Silence|LeBlanc}} when a team fight may happen soon.
 
*For the maximum burst damage Leblanc should cast {{ai|Sigil of Silence|LeBlanc}} followed by {{ai|Mimic Sigil of Silence|LeBlanc}} which will both silence the target as well as place another sigil. Then cast {{ai|Distortion|LeBlanc}} to proc the sigil from the mimic. If the target is still alive either wait for {{ai|Sigil of Silence|LeBlanc}} to come off cooldown so you could {{ai|Sigil of Silence|LeBlanc}} and then {{ai|Ethereal Chains|LeBlanc}} or just throw {{ai|Ethereal Chains|LeBlanc}} right away allowing you to {{ai|Sigil of Silence|LeBlanc}} after it comes off cooldown (the cooldown on {{ai|Sigil of Silence|LeBlanc}} is short enough for you to do this).
 
*<span style="font-style: normal; ">Since </span>{{Ai|Sigil of Silence|LeBlanc}}<span style="font-style: normal; "> and </span>{{ai|Mimic Sigil of Silence|LeBlanc}} 's marks trigger on any spell damage, you can {{ai|Ethereal Chains|LeBlanc}} and then hit {{Ai|Sigil of Silence|LeBlanc}}<span style="font-style: normal; "> and </span>{{ai|Mimic Sigil of Silence|LeBlanc}} before the snare, and let the snare's damage detonate the mark from {{ai|Mimic Sigil of Silence|LeBlanc}}
 
*A quick way to cast any of Leblanc's spells is to smart-cast them, either by remapping smart-cast spells to Q / W / E / R or holding shift and then hitting Q / W / E / R. When combined with the combo above you could potentially drop an enemy carry in one burst before they have time to react.

*{{ci|LeBlanc}} actually suffers from a deficiency in health. {{ii|Hextech Revolver}} could help her with this. This can also be followed up with {{ii|Will of the Ancients}} if needed. The necessity for this, however, is null with enough skill using LeBlanc, and {{ii|Abyssal Scepter}}, {{ii|Deathfire Grasp}}, may be all you need.
+
== Recommended Items ==
*{{ii|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.
+
{{Recommended items
*{{ii|Deathfire Grasp}} can be very powerful for {{ci|LeBlanc}} as it covers AP and an additional spell in her combo with its Active, which will make her more of a threat in the later stages of a game.
+
|map = Summoner's Rift
*{{ii|Haunting Guise}} can be a good early game choice for {{ci|LeBlanc}}, as it increases durability and damage, while also negating early game Magic Resistance. It can also replace {{ii|Sorcerer's Shoes}} in many builds, allowing the use of other boots without sacrificing Magic Penetration.
+
|s1 = Doran's Ring
*Two {{ii|Doran's Ring}}s during early game can be a very powerful build. It is a cheap and highly effective item combo that can be sold later.

*Because {{ai|Mimic|LeBlanc}} multiplies both the base damage AND the ratios on all of her abilities, pure AP item builds on LeBlanc are often the most powerful and effective builds.

;Playing Against {{ci|LeBlanc}}
{{cis|LeBlanc}} is a unsustainable slow jungler with great ganks.

* Stunning or silencing LeBlanc will prevent her from activating the return part of {{ai|Distortion|LeBlanc}}.
* Starting items: {{ii|Cloth Armor}}, {{ii|Health Potion}} x5
+
* Stay behind minions to make {{ai|Ethereal Chains|LeBlanc}} difficult to land and force her to use {{ai|Distortion|LeBlanc}} in a suboptimal manner.
* Skill progression: {{ai|Sigil of Silence|LeBlanc}} &rarr; {{ai|Distortion|LeBlanc}} &rarr; {{ai|Ethereal Chains|LeBlanc}} &rarr; optional from here on.
 
* Jungling order: Blue Golem (Smite) &rarr; Wolves &rarr; Wraiths &rarr; Red Lizard &rarr; (Gank)
 
* LeBlanc requires heal and smite to jungle. Leblanc's innate will reset the Blue Golem camp otherwise.
 
* Skill order: Q-W-E now upgrade Q and upgrade E next and W last (upgrade Ulti when ever you can).

|==Tricks==

{{ci|LeBlanc}} is a demanding champion when it comes to managing her abilities. Although a little practice will help the player figure out the main combos, this section should helpful regardless to skip those parts.

  +
* {{ai|Distortion|LeBlanc}}/{{ai|Mimic Distortion|LeBlanc}} allows {{ci|LeBlanc}} to close the gap between her and her target.
  +
* {{ai|Distortion|LeBlanc}}/{{ai|Mimic Distortion|LeBlanc}} if timed right, can be used to follow opponents through walls since it counts as a dash.
  +
* If you have {{ai|Distortion|LeBlanc}}/{{ai|Mimic Distortion|LeBlanc}} and {{si|Flash}} up, try to use {{ai|Distortion|LeBlanc}}/{{ai|Mimic Distortion|LeBlanc}} and then {{si|Flash}} to travel a longer distance.
  +
* {{ai|Distortion|LeBlanc}} can also be used as a ganking tool as it can dash through enemies and has a second activation, that allows you to blink back.
  +
* The second damaging part of {{Ai|Ethereal Chains|LeBlanc}} can also trigger {{Ai|Sigil of Malice|LeBlanc}}.
  +
* If you are being chased, throw {{ai|Ethereal Chains|LeBlanc}} on the pursuer for the potential snare, giving you a better chance of escaping.
  +
* If you have used {{ai|Ethereal Chains|LeBlanc}} while you're chasing a single enemy, use {{ai|Mimic Ethereal Chains|LeBlanc}} to snare the enemy again and to insure the kill.
  +
* When you end up in a team fight, you should consider utility of your spells over damage, and consider using {{ai|Ethereal Chains|LeBlanc}} as your {{ai|Mimic|LeBlanc}} spell for a  longer snare.
  +
* Do not use {{ai|Mimic|LeBlanc}} on a champion that has a spell shield. Use a basic ability to break the shield first, or wait for another way to break the shield.
  +
* {{Ai|Distortion|LeBlanc}} then {{ai|Sigil of Malice|LeBlanc}} is the most reliable source of damage, since the duration of {{ai|Distortion|LeBlanc}} is long enough for you to escape without putting yourself out of position. But {{Ai|Sigil of Malice|LeBlanc}} then {{Ai|Ethereal Chains|LeBlanc}} is the safest source of damage, which gives you 4 seconds of powerful disables to kite enemy champions.
  +
* {{ai|Ethereal Chains|LeBlanc}} - {{ai|Mimic Ethereal Chains|LeBlanc}} - {{ai|Ethereal Chains|LeBlanc}} and juke in between is a must-known combo. This is also why you have to get high cooldown reductions.
  +
** This is not an "ideal" scenario at all. You can use this in an ambush, or just simply {{si|Flash}} to land your {{ai|Ethereal Chains|LeBlanc|chains}} then start to juke for the kill.
  +
* Practice to kill 5 [[raptor]]s with a single {{ai|Distortion|LeBlanc}} {{ai|Sigil of Malice|LeBlanc}} combo. It's basically a free canon minion.
  +
* Learning to hide your {{ai|Ethereal Chains|LeBlanc|chains}} is crucial. It is a really strong tool to catch/ambush a target. Use {{ai|Ethereal Chains|LeBlanc}} then {{ai|Distortion|LeBlanc}} immediately to cancel its animation.
  +
* {{ai|Mimic Sigil of Malice|LeBlanc}} is your strongest tool to deal with champions who has massive, point-and-click single target burst like {{ci|Syndra}}, {{ci|Veigar}}, and {{ci|Malzahar}}. {{ai|Distortion|LeBlanc|Dash in}}, {{ai|Mimic Sigil of Malice|LeBlanc}}, juke, then continue your combo. By doing this, you put a huge pressure on them and force them to delay their retaliation. Even if you can't take them down, you can still out-trade them really hard.
  +
* {{ai|Distortion|LeBlanc}} - {{ai|Mimic Distortion|LeBlanc}} - {{ai|Sigil of Malice|LeBlanc}} is a strong tool to clear a big wave of minions, or to apply multiple {{ai|Sigil of Malice|LeBlanc|marks}} during a teamfight.
  +
** Only go in when the enemies' hard [[crowd control]]s are on cooldown. This way to stay for your passive.
  +
* Use {{ai|Ethereal Chains|LeBlanc}} then {{ai|Distortion|LeBlanc}} toward another direction to juke. Follow with {{ai|Mimic Ethereal Chains|LeBlanc}} for the biggest damage output.
  +
* The best combo when using LeBlanc is by first hitting an enemy with {{ai|Ethereal Chains|Leblanc}}, if it roots the target, follow up with {{ai|Sigil of Malice|Leblanc}} and with a {{ai|Mimic Sigil of Malice|LeBlanc}} to refresh and trigger the mark, then dash in with |{{ai|Distortion|LeBlanc|}} for massive burst, if you are fed enough, you can skip the {{ai|Ethereal Chains|LeBlanc}} and go for the {{ai|Sigil of Malice|LeBlanc}}-{{ai|Mimic Sigil of Malice|LeBlanc}}-{{ai|Distortion|LeBlanc}} combo.
  +
||
  +
;Rune Usage
  +
* {{ci|LeBlanc}} utilises a really fast combo with multiple abilities, therefore the best keystone you should take 100% of the time is {{ri|Electrocute}}.
  +
** {{ri|Electrocute}} procs for extra burst damage that deals reasonable damage throughout the game. 
  +
*** {{ci|LeBlanc}} is strongest early to mid, but falls off late game if she cannot snowball her lead. Using {{ri|Electrocute}} will give you extra pressure in your lane to get your snowball rolling.
  +
* {{ri|Sudden Impact}} works with your {{ai|Distortion|LeBlanc}} since it is a dash and blink. This rune will give you bonus temporary [[Magic pen]], especially against squishy targets it'll be more benefitial.
   
  +
;Item Usage
  +
* [[Cooldown reduction]] is the strongest stat on {{ci|LeBlanc}}. You must reach the cap as soon as possible using Flat Cooldown reduction runes or itemization.
  +
* {{ii|Doran's Ring}} is a great starting item on {{ci|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 {{ai|Sigil of Malice|LeBlanc}}.
  +
* {{ii|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.
  +
* {{ii|Luden's Echo}} is a good item to rush on {{ci|LeBlanc}}, offering mana sustain, ability power, and cooldown reduction. The passive portion of the item also helps out with burst or waveclear.
  +
* {{ii|Banshee's Veil}} and {{ii|Zhonya's Hourglass}} are good against magic and physical damage, respectively.
  +
* Both {{ii|Ionian Boots of Lucidity}} and {{ii|Sorcerer's Shoes}} are good boots for {{ci|LeBlanc}}.
  +
* {{ii|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, {{ii|Rabadon's Deathcap}} is an essential buy.
  +
* {{ii|Hextech Protobelt-01}} boosts {{cis|LeBlanc}} mobility even more, while offering more cooldown reduction and health.
  +
* Many enemies have magic resistance that increases as they level up. Buying a {{ii|Void Staff}} as a last or second-to-last item will help {{cis|LeBlanc}} spells deal significantly more damage.
   
*Investing in an early {{ii|Negatron Cloak}} for [[magic resistance]] will significantly reduce her burst damage. Later in the game, you can build it into a {{ii|Banshee's Veil}} and disrupt her combo. Otherwise, if you are playing a squishy mage or AD carry, she will be able to burst you down even late game due to good scaling. Do NOT neglect MR.
+
;Countering
*LeBlanc relies heavily on spell combos, especially with her {{Ai|Sigil of Silence|LeBlanc}}. Try to interrupt her spell combo in the middle of {{Ai|Sigil of Silence|LeBlanc}}, as this will often force her back to wait for cooldown.
+
* Be wary of {{cis|LeBlanc}} damage potentials when she has you {{ai|Sigil of Malice|LeBlanc|marked}}.
*Always wait for her passive to trigger before targeting her with an ultimate like {{cai|Demacian Justice|Garen}} or {{cai|Ace in the Hole|Caitlyn}} because otherwise she will most likely get away with {{ai|Distortion|LeBlanc}}.
+
* Presuring her into using both her {{ai|Distortion|LeBlanc}} can set her up for a gank by a teammate from which she can't escape, as they both have long cooldown.
*Be sure to commit to attacking her, as she can easily punish enemy champions with {{ai|Distortion|LeBlanc}}.
+
* {{ci|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.
*Presuring her into using both her dashes can set her up for a gank by a teammate from which she can't escape, as they both have long cooldown.
+
* Avoid minion waves that was {{ai|Sigil of Malice|LeBlanc|marked}} while you've been marked as well. {{ai|Sigil of Malice|LeBlanc}} or {{ai|Mimic Sigil of Malice|LeBlanc}} will bounces on you and deals massive damage.
*LeBlanc is extremely squishy so she is very vulnerable to hard cc, such as stuns and suppression, and focus. Taking her out of the fight early prevents her from being able to burst down a carry.
+
* Both {{ai|Ethereal Chains|LeBlanc}} and {{ai|Mimic Ethereal Chains|LeBlanc}} are strong disengage tools. Create distance to avoid being {{ai|Ethereal Chains|LeBlanc|rooted}} and seek to engage afterwards.
*{{ai|Mirror Image|LeBlanc}}'s stealth does not break the auto attacking AI's lock on her; allowing the autoattacking AI to continue without interruption can finish her off.
+
* All of {{cis|LeBlanc}} spells deal magic damage, therefore any form of magic resistance will mitigate her damage significantly.
*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.
+
** {{ii|Banshee's Veil}} offers a spell shield to negate 1 spell from {{ci|LeBlanc}}. Its magic resistance and health will help tremendously in surviving {{cis|LeBlanc}} burst, while possibly blocking {{cis|LeBlanc}} initiation. As such, it is a recommended buy if going against {{ci|LeBlanc}}.
*Warding brushes will make it harder for LeBlanc to juke using {{ai|Distortion|LeBlanc}}.
+
* After {{ci|LeBlanc}} uses her {{ai|Distortion|LeBlanc}} and {{ai|Mimic Distortion|LeBlanc}}, she is at her most vulnerable as her damage and mobility are both dependent upon it.
  +
* Do not be tricked by her {{ai|Mirror Image|LeBlanc|mimics}}, try to save up abilities like ultimates during this situation, as the {{ai|Mirror Image|LeBlanc|mimics}} can be used as a shield against certain attacks and abilities, making them get wasted.
  +
** A common technique against {{ci|LeBlanc}} is to play a champion that can easily guess where the Real {{ci|LeBlanc}} and the clone of herself is. {{ci|Fiora}} & {{ci|Zed}} are considered the best choices, because {{ai|Grand Challenge|Fiora}} & {{ai|Death Mark|Zed}} 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 {{ci|LeBlanc}} is by using ignite while bursting her down or checking the particles of the real {{ci|LeBlanc}} for easier guess.
  +
* Watch out when you see {{ci|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 {{ci|LeBlanc}} leaves your lane.
  +
* {{ci|LeBlanc}} is surprisingly dangerous, especially when assassinating low-health champions due to {{ai|Sigil of Malice|LeBlanc}}, so beware.
  +
* {{ci|Lissandra}} is probably the best counter to {{ci|LeBlanc}} for two reasons. First {{ci|Lissandra}} can outpoke {{ci|LeBlanc}} in the laning phase thanks to {{ai|Ice Shard|Lissandra}} and second, {{ci|Lissandra}} can use {{ai|Frozen Tomb|Lissandra}} to negate {{cis|LeBlanc}} burst.
  +
* {{ci|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 {{ci|LeBlanc}} to juke using {{ai|Distortion|LeBlanc}}.

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&#039;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&#039;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&#039;s Veil item Banshee's Veil and Zhonya&#039;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&#039;s Shoes item Sorcerer's Shoes are good boots for LeBlanc OriginalSquare LeBlanc.
  • Mejai&#039;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&#039;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.

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&#039;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.
