Not Updated For Current Season
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.
In the guide I will be showing you how to build leblanc with insane burstdamge throughout the game. Leblanc can be one of the deadlist champions with her insane burst damage and effective escape methods so hopfully i can share with you how to play her well, also to let you know the is my first guide on here so don't be to harsh but give us some feedback. This guide offers barley any surviablity and relies on getting kills early game.
The runes I've selected for leblanc are basically to start with insane abilty power so by level 3 you should be able to knock half hp off the aposing mid champ in one quick burst. With aplifying Tome you will be starting with around 61 ap, meaning you should be able to deal massive amouts of damage by the time you get level 6. I would suggest not poking until level 3 where you should hit your q and instantly follow it up with w and press w again to return to your postion although I'll explain all this in another sections.
The mastiers are alittle different to a "standard" leblanc build. Going 21 - 3 -4 and you maybe wondering why the 3 in defence. As this is a guide to dominate early game to get stacks for the later game by buying amplifying tome you are leaving yourself on very low hp to start with and there is a big chance the other mid will be ap and will have bought dorans ring which gives the extra 100hp. With this little bit of magic resist it should put you on even playing ground when it comes to poking as of your insane ability power.
We are starting of with amplfying tome for the reason that it gives us the most abilty power out of all the starting iteams + its part of mejai's soulstealer. You wanna be getting soulstealer as fast as possible and then start getting kills to stak it up. For every kill you get 16 ap (+5%) thanks to masteries and every assist 8 ap (+5%) so you wanna be getting as many kills/assists as possible. Next iteam is rob of ages, this item gets better over times + adds mana and surrviablity into play. Rabadon's deathcap is one of the best ap items there is giving you +140ap and 30% of your overall ap back, you could rush this item rather than getting rob of ages if you are doing really well. DFG is a good item as it gives cooldown reductions and with leblancs ulti already on a short cooldown its really help + its active can get you alot of kills if you use it right. And to finsh off with another deathcap as it will give up more ap if you reach up to this item then you must be doing really well already
Pretty standard leblanc squence, max out your q then w then e leveling ulti at 6 - 11 - 16.
When it comes down to kills people either use "q" "r" "w" "e", if its just a one v one fight and you can easily escape if not just use "q" "r" "e" so if things get nasty you can use w and even flash aswell if needed to get away. Obviously don't always use this squence if your in a situation were there is a better one for instance, if there are 3 enimies on low health then use "w" and "r" into them to pick up a easy triple kill if you can gurantee your escpe.
flash and ignite would be my choices as you can pick up some easy kills with ignite. and flash because if you die you lose one third of your stacks so having flash just to make sure you can live and you can combine it with your "w" and "r" to travel a insane distant.
If you have read this whole guide then thankyou and I hope it can help. This is just my take on leblanc and if your a new leblanc player I would suggest following someone else's guide or trying this out in a custom game to make sure you can get the hang of it.
