Not Updated For Current Season
Hello all. This is my first guide so it may have mistakes or be incomplete. The first thing to know about this build is this is how I build for RANKED games, I go slightly different in normal. This is a highly aggressive "glass cannon" build and if you are not prepared to pull some risky stunts this is not your build. This build is also for laneing mid. If you are not taking mid I doubt this build will be as effective.
Here is what I go for runes and why.
Marks I take flat Magic Pen. Why? LeBlanc is a burst damage character, magic pen is essential to getting any kills. It is kinda a no brainer.
For yellow I take flat ability power. Why? Leblanc can do some insane damage early game and the flat AP will help score an easy first blood.
For blue I take cooldown reduction. Being a burst damage champion LeBlanc can focus down a champion, but cannot do anything until her abilities come back. This makes it so you can get back into the fight quicker, since we are not buying any cooldown reduction items.
Quints I go magic pen for the same reason as marks.
This is my first guide so I do not know how to make all the pictures so I will try to make this as visually pleasing as possible.
1)Doran's Ring -- We get this first because it is awesome. AP, Mana regen, and health. It has everything. With the recent price increase you may have to go back to base earlier than you wish for health potions, but if you score first blood this is not a problem.
2)Sorcerer's Shoes -- Why do we get boots first? Well first of all more magic pen so you can burst down some people. Second I like to start ganking as soon as possible. Once I get my boots I run around and start ganking to score a couple of easy kills.
3) Mejai's Soulstealer. I know a stacking item is risky in ranked, but I still usually get 20 stacks on this item. It is cheap and gives huge AP and this allows you to gain AP while working on some survivability items.
4)Banshee's Veil -- I love this item. Give you mana and health and magic resistance, plus it's passive is unbeatable. This will help you get away from many sticky situations.
From here on out it gets pretty situational. If the match is going great I start building Death cap. If you need some more survivability go for the crystal scepter. Lastly I build abyssal scepter if the match is still going (if the match has lasted this long the enemy team has probably built some MR.
I always start with distortion. Why? Because at level one it does more damage than sigil and I like to harass with it. Really it doesn't matter since you will not being doing anything serious until level 2. So skilling order is R->Q->W->E. I level up chains last because it is a skill shot and it is safer to have the AOE leveled first.
I have found that the most effective way of killing someone is to use your skills in this order. E-Q-R-W but this is all situational. many fights I start with W if it helps with my positioning and end with E so set off that mimiced sigil.
I use Flash and Ignite.
Most guides I see use Flash and Ghost. Reasons why I use Ignite instead of ghost. With distortion mimic and flash you have 3 escape mechanisms so ghost is even more over kill. Ignite will help snatch first blood and more kills early game. Late game it will help shut down champions like Mundo or Warwick.
I always always ALWAYS take flash. With this you can escape from pretty much any situation ever, or my favorite, use it to be super aggressive. I use it to flash over minions and walls to surprise enemies and burst them down before they even know I am there.
-Huge burst damage
-Crazy escape Artist
-I can't think of anything except may squishy, but if you play right you won't even die..
I just got a ****py screen recorder so I will, at a later date try to upload some gameplay and some screenshots of scores. I find it pretty normal to get over 15 kills and under 5 deaths (if any) using this build. I will update it as I figure out more how to use this builder.
All comments will be read and taken into consideration. Please comment to help me out, as I said this is my first guide.
