Chapter 1

LEARN ANOTHER ******** CHAMPION.
seriously. Upcoming DFG nerf will make LB pretty much non-viable due to a non-existent mid-late game.




For regular updates, look to my channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/r3negade37 All new videos are posted there. TY

I've decided to put this section in here to explain the guide a bit.

Whilst initially all I had intended to do was simply to write about Leblanc, quite frankly that isn't possible to do by itself if I wish to do her any justice.

You can have as good mechanical skill as you want... but if you have non-existant general game skills like map awareness, then no amount of writing purely about Leblanc will help you.

This is why I wrote sections like Who I am, my experiences, How I play her, in an attempt to instill some background knowledge into those who read this guide.

So it's split as such:

You want to learn to play Leblanc to the best of your ability?
Read everything.

You already have good game skills and knowledge, and just want to know about Leblanc and how she works?
I guess you can skip straight to Runes, Masteries, Summoners.

That is all.

Thank you.

Introduction

Is any introduction needed? This is Leblanc. At one point or another, (unless you've been a very sheltered person), people will have been at the receiving end of an absolute drubbing by this champion. Comes out of nowhere, combos you, and gtfo's. Typically followed by "OP", or other choice complaints/expletives.

I intend to be as detailed as I can in this guide. But I will make one thing clear: guides are no substitute for experience. If LoL was a game where it had one-size-fits-all solutions it would be rather stale. (ok. maybe . Or . Or . Or.. ehh nvm). Likewise, this guide is not a light read. This is literally the distillation of everything I have learned - and if you're here panicking because you've locked her in before a ranked game and don't know what to do, you're out of luck buddy. To this end, I've tried to make this guide moderately visually appealing, but It's substance that matters. You won't find funky banners, icons, ponies w/e here. If you're here to actually get better at her... then read on.

Let's make another thing clear: playing Leblanc properly is both hard, and not hard.
Any idiot can QR someone. Any muppet can get a good game with a champion and carry his team. It takes practice, skill and knowledge to consistently do your job well. Leblanc's kit is so incredibly versatile, that the amount of intricacies in the variables one considers in decision making takes far longer to master than other champions. And even then, Leblanc relies on your opponents making mistakes. At high ELO, that happens very rarely. Miss your opportunity, and you WILL fail. No amount of farming will rescue you if you fail in your window of dominanceas LB. It generally only takes one mistake for you to die horribly. But luckily for you, I will be spelling most of these out later on.

On the other hand, if only people weren't utterly brain-dead sometimes they would find themselves so much better off. I'm talking about consistent face-planting into walls, building items which just don't work on Leblanc, and having one-track minds. This latter part I will elaborate on later on in this guide.

As with any champion: USE YOUR BRAIN . This guide is how I play her. It would be short-sighted, not to mention arrogant, to say this is the only or best way to play her. I'm sure someone else will have success with her by playing her differently.
Nevertheless, this guide might have a shade more bitterness in it than others. So I apologise for that.


But lastly, and perhaps most importantly: always look to what mistakes you made. . You know the drill. "Elo hell." "feeders". "ragers". It's simply too easy to state you lost the game due to other people's mistakes. Perhaps. But in my games I still find that one mistake or two that i could have avoided. Try it. Get LoLreplay, set it up, watch your games.
