Introduction

Allo' Allo' Everybody.

This is, of course, a guide to playing LeBlanc as an AD Carry, One of the most fun and, somewhat, rewarding "Joke Builds" out there.

To start off, I am not saying that you should play AD LeBlanc over AP LeBlanc, they are two completely separate champions, similar to AP and AD Tristana.

Pros / Cons

Prestigious Pros:
- Unexpected Playstyle: When people see a LeBlanc, they expect them to be a one-pass burst caster, instead of a sustained DPS carry, and will often react accordingly. In other words, "Classic Misdirection".
- Lots of control with your E (Slow / Root) and Mobility with your W (Dash)
- Abilities have high base damage, even without AP, and can help to secure a kill.
- Mimic (Ultimate) allows for mind-boggling possibilities, from escapes, juking, chasing, burst, or even keeping someone rooted for ~4 seconds

Enchaining Cons:
- Short Range: LeBlanc has a quite short range, both on her abilities and her right-click attacks, with nothing but a dash ability to help overcome it.
- Reliant on abilities in Early Game: Almost half of your early-game damage will come from abilities, requiring you to watch your mana even more than AP LeBlanc.

Runes

For Runes, I pick the standard AD Carry runes, with a twist, I take one "Greater Glyph of Strength", which pushes your starting AD from 15 to 16, due to behind-the scenes calculations.

(For more information on this, Watch this video from Chaox.)

Other than Marks and Quints, Magic Resist and Armour Seals and Glyphs give some very helpful early survivability.

Masteries

For masteries I pick the standard 21/0/9, because I do not find the Utility masteries to be as useful on AD LeBlanc (Or AP, for that matter) as other champions.

Summoner Spells

You want Flash and Ignite. There are no exceptions to this rule. Heal may be nice, but ignite is almost, if not completely, necessary to picking up level 1-2 kills.

Team Work

So where do you actually play LeBlanc as AD?

The answer is in Bot Lane, of course!

Summary

This is just a simple guide I threw together in spare time.

This guide is also not meant to be used in Ranked Games, although I'd love to see people trying it out there, for serious play you're nine-times-out-of-ten going to be better off with an AP build.

Cheers, All.
