Push the lane hard, pick someone who can survive her burst, or play like a coward until teamfights.

Giant's Belt + Negatron Cloak into Rylai's Crystal Scepter + Abyssal Mask

or

catalyst the protector + Negatron Cloak into Banshee's Veil or Rod of Ages + Abyssal Mask.

edit: Build flat health portion first, then the Mr. That should counter most of her early game damage, so that you'll survive late game.

If it doesn't then you either fed her too hard before you got the items, or I'm wrong.

And Banshee's Veil works especially welll.

Health and MR do the trick, mainly health though. Just try not to get annihilated early game and she will fall off late game.

Lvl 1 boots, x2 Dorans-> abyssal (negatron first) screws over lb quite hard.

But, analyse how she plays.
Is she ultra aggro? (I.e, always qw) or slightly? (just q?)

In the former, explain it as such to your jungler and gank her face off.

If the latter, she shouldnt be doing enough damage to you.



Indirect methods:

Push the lane hard, but quickly- too slow, and you'll get handled yourself.
deny her her blue. W-qr is quite expensive mana wise. Keeping it at 40s is better than 28ish seconds.


Fire with fire way:

Levels 1-5, when she moves to harass you, move towards the
Distort-return point, so you're in a better position to hit her
Back.

Which champions specifically?

E-q her anytime she tries to qw you. you need goodish reactions though.
auto attack her after- due to your e, if she sticks around to retaliate AA's, she will lose the trades.

If she's the type who just qw-> return immediately, never move the return point. AA her to death.


how badly did you lose the lane?

I don't know, honestly. As Swain, you have 5 levels of complete stomping on LB.

LB's W is around 17 sec cooldown (depending on CDR)

After she blows Distortion, just Torment her whenever you can and try to throw as much damage as possible.

When ganking, try to wait for W and R to go on cooldowns, then just rape le face ;)

Also, if you gank her, try to place Nevermove onto the Distortion return marker. Works sometimes lol :D

Farm-farm-farm.



PS Best LB-countering item is Banshee's Veil. You might want that instead of RoA. Get a fast Catalyst also. It helps.
Want to see an in-depth diamond level LeBlanc guide? Come by and check this ;) It's written by Baekstra who is a Diamond LeBlanc main on EUW and being one myself, I can vouch for it 100%!
