Summoner Spells

Recommended spells

- Why? Because it is like having two spells in one, you can use it for slowing fleeing champions and get that last hit or slow a champion that is chasing you

- Gives you great mobility over the map, what else do you want?

Possible spells to use

- Good spell, but your W does this also on a lower CD and you can also use a W-R combo and your gone

- Another very good spell but you have enough ways to run away

- Nice spell, it is up to you if you think you can use this spell than the recommend ones

Guide Top


Not much to say about the masteries because they are very basic for casters except:

Good Hands vs Perseverence

Perseverence is USELESS, that's right USELESS!
At level 18 if you have all the objects you will gain from this about 2 MP5 thats like .... nothing.
If you die Good Hands is much better than that 2 MP5, they can't even be compared that is all I had to say

LeBlanc's Abilities

This will save your life so many times and your enemies will just want to cry because they attacked the wrong LeBlanc, also you can control the copy by alt-clicking

Sigil of Silence Your main nuking ability, enemies will never know what hit them after you use a Q-R combo
Adds a nice damage to your combo, you can catch a fleeing enemy with it or make a run for it when you are in a difficult situation. Try to keep this off it's CD until you in go for a gank or you enter a team-fight
Keeps the enemy where he needs to be, in your firing range when attacking or stunned away from you when you are chased, and also it has a nice damage

This is your nuking power, escape power and CC power. Use it with sigil of silence for insane damage, with Distortion for a fast escape and with Ethereal Chains for a double stun on the more dangerous enemy champions while your team focuses them down.

Guide Top

Skill Sequence

The skill sequence depends mostly on your play style and who you are fighting. Sigil of silence is a must so always get it, of course get Mimic whenever you can and Ethereal Chains & Distortion take them however you see fit but try to have 1 point in each early game.

Greater Seal of Replenishment

Basic nuking runes, MPen for taking down more tanky champions MP5 for your mana problems, AP for nuking

Guide Top


- Great item as long as you can get the stacks, getting it early = more stacks and faster

- Getting anything else and you are crazy, Mpen and movement just what you need

- Most OP AP object in the game, it's a must and it works great with a few Mejai stacks early game

- You are squishy, and need survivablity this will save your life, getting it early = more effect from it's passive

- Tons of mana and AP, what else you want?!

- Very nice item, you can get earlier if you want or replace your Mejai with it if you think you can't get it's stacks properly

- AP and Mpen, this is a must if the enemy champions start to stack magic resist, if needed get this before Archangel's Staff

And don't forget to get elixirs when you finish your item build

LeBlanc is squishy but played right you don't need survivability items so I will not go over any survivability items to use on her because you are just wasting your nuking damage for a few seconds of life before you die or an escape with very low HP after you didn't do any damage because of those survivability items.

Guide Top


Learn to last hit minions with your auto-attack and late game one Distortion is enough to clear a wave of creeps.

How to play

You are a mid champion so always try to go mid unless something prevents you from doing this(a noob or a better player for mid)

Early gmae

Start with an Amplifying Tome and a Health Potion. Play defensivly, and hit with your sigil of silence the enemy champion whenever you can and go back to base when you have about 1900 gold to buy your Mejai's Soulstealer and Sorcerer's Shoes. And of course go back to base if you have low HP and you used your HP potion.

Side-only: Try to catch an enemy champion with your chains when he is at about half HP and a long distance from his tower and nuke him with your partner for first-blood

Mid/Late game

Keep an eye out for any possible ganks and in team fights try to stay as far away as possible while still being in range to fire and target the more squishier targets first. Also you can use your chains and ultimate for a double stun and gain a numerical advantage right away. And never go alone on the map, you are not god and you can be killed.
