The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
Threats to Illaoi with this build
|Maokai||Tanks: the easiest match ups, there's nothing they can do, they can't kill you, but you can kill them.|
Hi everyone, I'm Arkaidan, i am a diamond 2 player in the euw server and i main Darius and Illaoi.
I think she is an awesome champion with a great potential.
She is not as easy as she looks, there are a lot of subtleties which are the difference between 1v5 the enemy team and dying like the worst douche in the world, that's why i decided to make this guide.
Nuff said, let's get started!
( There are probably going to be a lot of typing and grammatical errors, i'm sorry about that.)
Flash: it's a must, helps escaping from bad situations and allows you to do fancy R-Flash combos.
Teleport: let's talk about it, her roams are garbage, it's a lot better to run an offensive summoner, destroying your opponent, taking the tower and grouping as early as possible.You're not even going to be exposed to early ganks, since you are going to play passively.
I'd only use it against champions with high poke like Quinn or Teemo
Ignite: It's very strong against champions with huge healings, like Trundle, Volibear, Vladimir, Swain...
Exhaust: Helps against all in champions. (Riven, Irelia, Fiora, Fizz and expecially Tryndamere, as you can exhaust him during the ult).
Pros / Cons
-Almost no counters
-Strongest duelist in the game (Nasus is not included)
-Insane 1vN potential
-Frustrating laning phase
-If you spwan a tentacle on the tower and if you hit E, you can dive everyone
-Long range abilities
-Dunks you every 2 seconds.
-Her romaing potential sucks
-If you miss E you're ****ed
Tips and Tricks
-Overlapping tentacles reduces their damage, so don't use Q immediately after W
-If you turn someone into a vessel and he survives with low health, you can use your ultimate to make the spawning tentacles swing faster. I've gotten hundreds using ult this way.
-Pulling someone's soul is a very good sustain
-During ult animation you're invulnarble to all ccs, abuse of it
-You can do stilish combos with flash ,like R-Flash and E-Flash.
-Remember that tentacles attacks vessels and spirits!
-Try to hit both the spirit and the champion to do additional damage whenever you can, however, you should prioritize the champion if you can't hit both of them
