[10.15] ✨ Indepth AP Skirmisher Guide✨ Shrine Guardian

By TowerShieldDude
Info about the Author

Good Morning, fellow League players!

Going by the terrible name TowerShieldDude. I'm a returning Player that has found their home in the turbulent Jungle of the Fields Of Justice. After a season or two with my new account. I feel safe enough to return to Mobafire and restart my journey with creating guides! Starting with the recent Champion addition in Patch 10.15. Lillia The Bashful Bloom.


The Mindset for Lillia (Under Revision)

Aim to Win the Long War:

Lillia is a Mage falling under the class of Skirmisher alongside Champions like Jax, Fiora or Tryndamere who aim to scale into late game. Though unlike other Skirmisher Champions, she isn't easily kited due to her high Move speed. She also has a powerful Crowd Control ultimate in Lilting Lullaby. Beware this is at the considerable cost of poor scaling burst damage. This can be detrimental due to late game being when Lillia's kit is strongest.

Due to her nature as a Skirmisher, Lillia wants play around her specific item and level spikes, a few examples are her level 6 and level 9. With item spikes found in Liandry's Anguish and Dead Man's Plate. With the hopes of scaling into late game or achieving a snowball to carry the game.

Though be aware that Lillia's damage and late game carry potential, ironically is considerably weakened when building generic Full AP items such as Rabadon's Deathcap or Spellbinder. This is due to an extremely important late game damage source of her kit being in her passive Dream-Laden Bough and core item Liandry's Anguish not actually scaling from AP ratios.

Due to the nature of her Skirmisher roots, Lillia scales more effectively when building around surviving and playing around Long extended fights. This effect is in part caused by the nature of her passive Dream-Laden Bough. Which enables her to make very good use of Liandry's Anguish's DoT 1.5% MaxHP Burn, the passive normally has a burn duration of 3 seconds.

Importantly the duration is refreshed by all spell damage. This includes Dream-Laden Bough's DoT 5% MaxHP Burn. This encourages Lillia to build around constant application of the %MaxHP Burn of the two passives. Due to this she's able to do insane damage without becoming squishy due to AP items. This is extremely important as Lillia has short range. Especially against many of the carries late game, which will almost always be protected by their front line.

The ultimate Lilting Lullaby is game defining and has potential found in Duels, Skirmishes, and Team fights. Unlike other Champions under the Skirmisher class, like Fiora, Jax or Yasuo. Usage of Lillia's ultimate does not lean heavily in either defense or offensive situations, instead being able to be optimally used in both manners.

Perhaps more defining about her, is that the ultimate Lilting Lullaby brings this power not just to herself, but instead to her whole team. Not only due to the damage dealt to an enemy when awoken supplementing lack of burst from her or teammates. Yet also due to the nature of the ability being Crowd Control. Combined with either Blooming Blows or Swirlseed. You can apply Lilting Lullaby to nearly the whole enemy team. Allowing you to safely Reap their Dreams for dear Mother Tree.
The Abilities

Dream-Laden Bough (Passive): Lillia's abilities apply Dream Dust, dealing 5% of the target's maximum health as Magic damage over 3 seconds, capped at 40 − 100 (based on level) damage against monsters.

Blooming Blows (Q): Lillia swings her censer around her, dealing Magic damage to nearby enemies. Enemies hit within the outer edge of the area additionally take the same amount as Hybrid penetration Bonus True Damage.

Blooming Blows (Passive): Lillia gains a Prance stack for 5 seconds whenever she hits at least 1 enemy with her abilities, refreshing up to 5 stacks. Stacks are lost by one every 1 second. Each stack grants Lillia Movement speed.

Watch Out! Eep! (W): Lillia Rushes up to 150 units in front of the target area over 0.75 seconds, though not through terrain, and winds up for a strike, dealing Magic Damage in an area. Enemies hit within the center are dealt 200% increased damage.
Watch Out! Eep! deals 50% damage to minions.

Swirlseed (E): Lillia lobs a seed at the target area that rolls forward indefinitely. The seed detonates upon colliding with an enemy or terrain, dealing Magic Damage to enemies in a cone, slowing them for 3 seconds and revealing them for 2 seconds.
The spot at which the seed will collide with terrain is highlighted only to Lillia while it is rolling.

Lilting Lullaby (R): ACTIVE: Lillia casts a magical lullaby over all enemy champions affected by Dream-Laden Bough's Dream Dust, rendering them Drowsy for 1.5 seconds, which gradually slows them, after which they fall Asleep for a 2/2.5/3 seconds.


- This godly passive Dream-Laden Bough encourages Lillia to build around keeping the powerful Max%HP burn of her Dream-Laden Bough applied as long as possible. Due to the passive not having any ratios AP or AD it encourages Lillia to build around sustained combat through DoT or CC applying items, self and team utility items and pure tank items.

- True Damage with Blooming Blows allows Lillia to scale her consistent damage into tanks and resistant targets even with little gold spent on AP Damage. Though this comes with a hefty trade, as Blooming Blows has terrible AP ratios (40%) for a melee range skill. Causing her effective damage when built Full AP to scale terribly into the mid to late game. This is due to Lillia's kit consisting mostly of short nearly melee range abilities. If you're a squishy mage going into melee range late game, that's a guranteed death against almost all carries AP or AD due to them having far more range than you.

- Don't worry, the weakness of Lillia's poor scaling can actually be easily alleviated. By building tank items which allow her to confidently spam Blooming Blows. Then by building around the application of constantly applying the stacking and synergistic burn effects of Dream-Laden Bough and Liandry's Anguish. It allows her to get an insane amount of safe and consistent damage, near or equal to when building Full AP items. Due to Lillia now being able to stay in fights to keep hitting her abilities on enemies. Without being forced to abandon fights due to being near death.

- A unbelievable amount of effective HP due to her high Move Speed allowing her to easily dodge skill shots. Coupled with her very high synergy with many of the tank items, though especially with Dead Man's Plate and Abyssal Mask. Allows her to be very survivable in a team fight.

- Easy kiting of the Jungle camps allows for healthy clears. Giving you a higher chance of surviving early counter jungling. Important as these early levels are your weakest moments in the whole game.

- Powerful 2v2 - 3v3 Skirmishing , especially in rivers and lanes where there is room to outmaneuver and kite Champions and skill shots.

- An extremely powerful ultimate with Lilting Lullaby. This one ability defines Lillia as a Skirmisher which is effective both in 1v1 and 2v2 skirmishes and in major 5v5 team fights moving into the late game. This allows her to even play effectively when considerably behind though you'll need to be more careful.

-This strength of Lillia is made obvious when comparing her to other Skirmishers like Fiora. Simply due to being able to provide a team with powerful consistent Crowd Control which other Skirmisher's lack in their ability kits. This means that Lillia isn't defined by the weakness of requiring items to be useful in team fights. As the easy to use Crowd Control found in her kit, allows her to find use in team fights beyond being an item defined Skirmisher.


- Short range skills with poor AP ratios on all of her abilities. Blooming Blows 40%, Watch Out! Eep! 30%, Swirlseed 40%, Lilting Lullaby 30%. Her Dream-Laden Bough passive doesn't even have any AP ratios at all. This leads to many snowball reliant Full AP builds being very squishy early, strong mid game due to the %Damage increases of Lillia's abilities and falling off sharply into late due to being unable to actually output damage. This shouldn't be happening with a Champion who's under the same classification as Jax, Master Yi.

- Lillia's main damage skills force her to move into melee range. Especially her Watch Out! Eep! ability which dashes her into the enemy team. This is alleviated by building tank items. But if you're in the early game with no tank items or you're using a snowball reliant Burst Mage build. Unless you were fortunate to get a snowball early she'll fall off by everyone's 3rd to 4th items. Simply due to the fact she can't attack without being killed or chain stunned.

- Lillia has a low chance of winning a 1v1 against an enemy jungler who counter jungles her very early into the game. Especially if they have any form of CC. This is due to most of Lillia's main kiting power her, MS from Prance. Scaling with the level of Blooming Blows which you'll lack levels in, at the earliest stages of the game. You simply have to run and loose your camps. Or ask for your laners to help assist.

- Lillia Is often inefficient when using Full AP builds especially for burst, this is due to most of her burst damage being located on her ability Watch Out! Eep!. Which only does high damage in the small center hitbox, increasing damage by 200%. Yet due to the nature of her high MS from Prance requiring she already be in a fight. Watch Out! Eep! will often fall off unbelievably fast. Either due to being killed when trying to move into kill range. Or being killed after landing Watch Out! Eep!, where then your damage will just be healed by items or Enchanters. The ability can also be interrupted by any Anti-Dash or CC ability. So don't lock Lillia in expecting her to easily fulfill the role of AP Burst Mages.

- The scaling issue is made more apparent by Blooming Blows due to it's lack of % increase damage. Combined with shorter range compared to Mages, and scaling being very poor at 90 AP Damage + X True Damage, with a low 40% AP ratio. The AP damage is what Blooming Blows True Damage scales with. This can cause her to often have trouble trying to finish off enemies with high sustain mid to late game. Due to often lacking easy burst in her base kit, aside from using an ability alongside Lilting Lullaby which has a considerable cooldown. These weaknesses will instead be fixed by our item and rune choices.

The Fawn's Journey (Summarized - Lore)

Intensely shy, the fae fawn Lillia skittishly wanders Ionia’s forests. Hiding just out of sight of mortals—whose mysterious natures have long captivated, but intimidated, her—Lillia hopes to discover why their dreams no longer reach the ancient Dreaming Tree. She now travels Ionia with a magical branch in hand, in an effort to find people’s unrealized dreams. Only then can Lillia herself bloom and help others untangle their fears to find the sparkle within. Eep!

They were so afraid—more tangle than sparkle. They were like the burls…

But as the warriors slept and Lillia wept, a dream emerged from the lone figure the others had been chasing. Weakly, it floated toward the broken branch on the ground and moved into the bough’s bud.

Lillia picked it up. She could feel the dream. As she whispered to it and soothed it, it glowed ever brighter—and so did she. The bud upon her head unfurled, and magic swirled around like sparkling pollen. In that moment, swept up in possibility and wonder, Lillia herself bloomed… until, with a sneeze, she sent the magic curling into the surrounding forest.

The humans awoke one by one, unable to remember what had brought them to the forest, or what they had done. None noticed the timid fawn behind the tree. With relief, Lillia watched the humans go, still seeing only confusing tangles—but knowing now that there was still a sparkle beneath it all.

And if their dreams wouldn’t come to the tree, she would have to bring the tree to them.

Taking up her branch, Lillia left the garden and entered the world of humans—a world she had always wanted to know, but one that frightened her now more than anything. It was so unlike what she understood.

Hiding just out of sight, Lillia now helps people’s dreams be born, drawn forward by glimpses of who they could be, and by what may be trapped beneath their tangles. By helping humans realize their deepest wishes, Lillia realizes her own, the bud on her head blooming as she is filled with joy.

Though darkness may be encroaching on Ionia once more, it is but a mask, and beneath it lies the familiar sparkle of hope. Only by braving the world, and braving herself, can Lillia hope to untangle its burls.
