Not Updated For Current Season
Let me introduce you LeBlanc - The Deceiver.
LeBlanc is a really fun champion to play. She is a Nuker. That means that she can take a massive chunk of health off the enemy very quickly. Sometimes she can even kill enemy with ONE combo. She is very squishy and has a weak end game, so you need to know some ticks to play her.
Her Lore is pretty interesting too, so I will post it here :)
Every city has its dark side, even one whose reputation is already of a questionable hue. Noxus – though its name is already invoked with a mixture of reverence and revulsion – is no exception to this simple truth. Deep within the winding dungeons that honeycomb the earth beneath its dark, meandering streets lies the real underbelly of this sprawling metropolis, a haven for all manner of malevolence. Amongst the cults, covens, and secret societies that call this labyrinth their home, LeBlanc, the Deceiver, presides over the Black Rose, a remnant from a lost, yet similarly unscrupulous time in Noxian history. Ruthless and seemingly ageless, LeBlanc and her ilk were a mainstay in Noxian political affairs during the era before the militarization of the Noxian government. In those days, this guild of powerful magicians met in secret to further their hidden agenda, and to hone a craft more subtle than that preferred by those currently in power.
While their exact motives have always remained mysterious, it was widely believed that the Black Rose was the true power behind the throne while the aristocracy still reigned in Noxus. When raw martial prowess became the ultimate determination of whose will held sway in the Empire, the Black Rose seemed to vanish overnight. Many believed that perhaps their time had simply passed, and that its members had put aside their quests for social and political dominance. When LeBlanc reemerged at the gates of the Institute of War, however, it became clear that these masters of shadow and flame had simply been biding their time, waiting for a new global authority to emerge: the League of Legends.
“The world is very different for those who cannot see beyond what is placed before their very eyes.” –LeBlanc, the Deceiver

LeBlanc's abilities have many uses. In this chapter I will only talk overally about her abbilities but there will be a separate chapter for every ability soon.
A skillshot that slows, stuns and deals damage to the target. Ideal for escaping, catching and finishing. It takes time to master right usage of Ethereal Chains, you need to know when to use it and in what purpose. DO NOT UNDERESTIMATE THIS SPELL BECAUSE YOU MAX IT LAST!
Basically an improved version of the spell you last used. This abbility has many uses.
Use it with Sigil of Silence for a huge nuke.
Use it with Distortion for escaping and catching.
Use it with Ethereal Chains for a great escaping tool against champs like Master Yi.
I use Greater Mark of Magic Penetration for some additional magic penetration needed (Especially End-Game) to maximize LeBlanc's damage output.
I use greater seal of replenishment to let LeBlanc keep a little bit more in mid lane.
I use Greater Glyph of Ability Powerfor some additional damage.
I use Greater Seal of Ability Power to add some more damage.
I use pretty standard mastery build for LeBlanc which adds some Cooldown Reduction, Ability Power, Magic Penetration, Mana Regen and health. Additionaly we have some exp increasment, neutral buff duration increasment and time dead decreasment.
The items I use are giving me a huge amount of Ability Power and Magic Penetration, which increases my damage output greatly. I use Deathfire Grasp for additional damage against tanks.
