Normal, Tanky Illaoi Toplane
Items to Build
Hey Folks, my name is
iLLaoi, and I'm an Illaoi Main (wheeeow, how recoureful).
Right now, im doing my project, to climb the elo ladder, just with Illaoi, on my smurf, iiLaoí (EuW).
Today I wanna teach you, how I play Illaoi, how I Lane, and how I win.
Illaoi is a hard Late-Game-Bully amd cam carry games by her own, if you have like 2 Tentacles in the right direction and bait the enemy team to it, you can solo 1v5, if your Laning phase went okay. Illaoi is in need of her tentacles to get her full potential, but she can also fight without, or just one tentacle "assisting" her.
I understood, that Runes should help you in the early game, so i designed my runes That way.
So you will build this masteries when in an AD-MAtchup
OR This ones if you are in an AP-Matchup:
Hey are (in my eyes) the best Runes you can run for Illaoi, they give rthe most secure in the early levels (everything under 6) amd help you to better your lafthits, have a better placing while poking because of the AD+Armor and you can farm more easily with the extra Mana that is given you (and comes back with the regen).
Here I have 2 "Standart Pages", that i Modify, depending on the Situation.
The first one is against squishy Lane partners or a Botlane with a squishy Support like Janna or Soraka. The Second one, which you would use mostly, is against Juggernauts or Tanky Mages, like Darius, Jayce and Swain.
Please Modidfy your page and dont Just copy it, its important, to do that, afterwards you stand there with Battle Trance against squishy Lane-Partners, thats just gg.
Often, Ill choose between Dorans Sword, and Corrupting Potion (mostly Corrupting, just better rn), before ill start going onto the Lane. Ill start with my Q, but maximize the W first, because the Bonus Damage on your second hit is (especially in Combination with your Ult) a very Strong Tool during Teamfights. To farm, ill try to get all Lasthits with Normal attacks, but if i fail sometimes, ill spend my Q, to get 2 or 3 Creeps at one time.
In the Earlygame overall, you just try to safefarm (when the enemy toplaner plays like a gank will happen to his favor, better waste that minion instead of giving a kill!), and not to die. The earlygame is Illaois' Wound point and the reason why she can get heavily stomped in this, early game-meta.
