Leblanc The Deceiver (AP-Nuke, Late game Carry)
Hello everybody, my name is Siegtion, and this is my first build :D
Leblanc is one of the best Casters in the game, and is very underestimated. If you build her correctly, she can nuke very well and even carry a team!
As a side note, I'd like to point out I don't have any scores posted. Mainly because this was a spur of the moment idea. I will try to get some good K/D Scores ASAP.
Anywho, Welcome to my AP NUKE BUILD :DD!!
The first thing you need to know about Leblanc is that she is a late bloomer. If you dont know what that means, gtfo. When she hits Level 6, she will get he Ultimate, and then she really starts to shine. Unlike most Champions, Leblanc has a very simple Ultimate. While It's a completely different attack for most champions, her ultimate allows her to re-use a Ability she just cast, with increased damage going from 10%/25%/40%.
Leblanc's Ultimate, Mimic, can copy any skill with increased damage, but your mainly going to use it for her first skill, Sigil of Silence. This is Leblanc's Trump Card, where her Damage comes from, what makes her a "Nuke". Sigil of Silence first off Does great damage around level 6. Then, if sigil is on a champion, when Leblanc hits the champion with another Agility, it silences them depending on your Sigil level. Great counter for alot of team fights.
Her second Abilty, Distortion, is a 2 in 1 ability. It Deals damage and is pretty decent for farming minions, but also great for escaping. Even better, at level 6+, You can combine it with Mimic you make a pretty clean and assured get away. Also, when you use the ability to farm minions, you can use the Ability once more to Teleport back to where you used it from.
Her third Ability, Ethereal Chain, Is what makes it easy to keep Champions from getting away, and helps when focusing Champions in Team Fights. Its a skill shot Ability, but if it hits, it slows the champion, and if the Chain is attached for more then 2 seconds, the Champion is stunned for 1 second(s). Whenever your in range, even if its early and there health is still rather high, use it. Its slows them from running, and then stuns so they cannot flash or use any of there Escape Ability's to get away.
And her final Ability, Mimic. If you still dont know what this does, Gtfo.
And now for her passive. I choose to mention this Last due to the fact that I find it rather useless, mainly because it only activates when you hit 40% or lower health. When you hit that amount of Health, your most likely going to die. If the team your playing against is not focused enough, they may become confused and attack the copy Leblanc. Thats how it was intended to work, but it only works 20% of the time.
In the beginning of the game, I choose to get Boots of Speed, and 2 Health pots and 1 mana pot. Boots of speed probably sounds a bit sketchy, but trust me, it works. It gives you the speed that the other team doesn't have to get away from an early gank, and it makes it easier to Recall. Im not mentioning any guides, but alot of them recommend you get Catalyst. I am against this because it doesnt build into anything thats good for Leblanc. As I do have Archangels staff up their in the Sequence, that will be later explained.
By the time your level 6, you should have 3 in Sigil of Silence and 1 in Distortion, and 1 in Ethereal chains, and 1 in Mimic. At this point, hopefully you have Sorcerers shoes, and if you got a kill along the way, Blasting Wand. If this is the situation, You should be able to Distortion, Sigil, Mimic Sigil, Ethereal, and that should take out 70%+ of their HP. Ending it With Ethereal allows your Teammates to get the kill, and or allow you to get the last hit, because by the time Ethereal stuns, you have Sigil back.
