Threats & Synergies
I think this matchup is one of the hardest in the top lane, she can parry your ult and just poke you to low health which is bad for lillia as she has no sustain.
Warwick will invade and destroy you early on in the jungle I usually ban him when playing jungle.
Somewhat of a hard matchup, hes known as one of the strongest early game lane bullies in the game but you have potential to outplay later on in the game.
Just watchout for his E, hes still a jugerrnaut and you can just poke him to low health as he has no built in sustain early.
Still a hard matchup in the jungle, can invade you and destroy you early on so whatchout but you still have potential to outplay him and just focus on scaling.
Morde is honestly kinda easy, you can easily dodge his abiltiies with Q movedspeed, take phase rush so when he gets rylais he cant slow you.
Sett is a juggernaut whos pretty immobile so hes easy to kite and poke down.
Same as sett and morde, pretty easy matchup but watchout for his Q movespeed, charge up your Q before poking him.
Hes got some cc and poke but you outpoke him, he can kill if he has ignite so watchout.
Pretty hard matchup, hes an early game beast and can invade and stop you in your tracks, try to path to avoid him and out scale him.
Kayn's early is somewhat weak and he cant really fight you if you get some AP early on but watchout if he goes blue kayn you will be in trouble, red kayn is still a bruiser so you can still kite and do true damage to him.
You are a skirmisher with allot of burst so you can fight graves later on in the game however watchout early as he can invade and destroy you.
Like morde, its kind of an easy matchup except darius has a stronger early. Just play a little extra careful especially if he has ignite. Look for trades once he blows his cooldowns/spells as hes pretty weak without them unlike morde.
Pretty easy but he has a slow so watchout if he hits it. Look to poke him down and take ignite, try to kill him before six. Get liandrys into thornmail for antiheal or tear into morellos.
This matchup is hard. She has a gapcloser, slow and at lv6 a forced 1v1. I recommend going tanky with frozen heart into ninja tabis first or thornmail into tabis if she has a healing build. Try to play it safe as most of the time you wont laning phase so just play safe and scale into mid-late game teamfights.
Early on amumu is weak like you before he gets his tank items. I would recommend going runic echoes into rylai liandrys so you can shred him. After 2-3 backs you can easily fight him with conq as you tank his damage and do decent damage to him, that IF he invades your jungle which most of the time he wont.
Hard matchup. She can invade and destroy you early on, I would recommend going for the bruiser build and just outscale her. Dont fight her but as I said in the jungle section guide, just try to get a kill bot or mid and then take drake if you can as thats the least you can do, well ofcourse you could dodge her stun if possible but she still does insane damage to you early on so watchout.
Hard matchup, early on he will destroy you as hes one of the best top laners early on since your early game is weak you will struggle. Later on becomes easier so just focus on farming.
Probably the best adc synergy, you can catch with E and jhin will follow up with his root and he can either or you can follow up with your ult for a secured kill, especially lethal when jhin reaches late.
Champion Build Guide
Lillia is a mid ranged skirmisher, a mobile and exteme sustained damage class who can shred anything from tanks and ADC's alike unlike their assassin counterparts who only excel at killing squishies. Lillia is no exception, though she falls more into the high mobility part of skirmishers and she's also the only ranged skirmisher in the game currently meaning with her high mobility and range she has great potential to kite bruisers and some tanks.
I have taught people on mobafire before with my other guide reaching millions of views and thousands of likes. I have a teaching style that is simple and straightforward making sure you improve as a player in one read so I hope you can upvote my guide or follow me on twitch where I stream (https://www.twitch.tv/lolayanleh) if my guide helps you. Now, lets go on with what you came for and that is to learn how to play this wonderful champion first we will start with her strenghts and weaknessess.
+ Aoe stun
+ Global catch range
+ Great mid to late game
+ Great when mastered
+ Huge damage
+ Can kill anything due to true damage and %max health damage
Lillia is a truly unique kind of skirmisher being the only ranged skirmisher in the game, this allows her for a fun and unique playstyle which players of all classes may enjoy as its something completely new from riot. She excels at kiting in and out with her Q which grants a stacking movement speed buff and her Q being very similar to Darius Q which spins in a circle and deals extra damage at the edge. She can stack the movement speed and Q on a melee or some short ranged champion and run away from their burst and then run at them and Q again, rinse and repeat this is the essence of her gameplay. This skill is one of the hardest to master but when mastered, a good lillia will be unstoppable.
She's also very good at catching out her enemies as her E is a ball she throws that has global range but will hit terrain so hitting it will take some practice but if you get the hang of it she can pair it up with her passive and ult which i'll explain later but will essentially give you a global sleep (stun). She's also excellent in teamfights mid to late game where if she catches out enemies with E and stuns them they are pretty much gonna get one shot by your team. All her abilties are aoe so if she hits multiple enemies and stuns them with ult, she will have a very good mid-late game teamfight. She also has good damage over time with her passive but essentially lillia is this kiting in and out, aoe stun monster who will devestate teams when mastered. I also want to mention as I said she's very difficult to play early on and to master so I would recommend not giving up after your first games as its natural to lose you first games with this champ. Even I with my mighty game knowledge (lol) struggled with her with my first games so dont give up and keep grinding! Now off to her weaknesses..
- Somewhat weak early game
- Easily dodegable skills
- No heal or shield
- Hard to master and pick up
|Lillia as I said is a kiting high mobility 'in and out' champion who dosent stay in one position for long so if you get CC'ed by a stun or knocked up you WILL get bursted as you are very squishy so watchout for enemy CC's as they are your biggest counter by far. Lillia also struggles against teams with good early games as they can shut her down before she gets to her amazing mid-late game, meaning its not a good idea to pick lillia against a Warwick in the jungle or Renekton in the top lane. She's extra squishy early with her base stats being that of a ranged champion so you need to play extra careful against early invading junglers or top lane lane bullies. Lillia also has skillshots with her W and E with the center of W being one of the hardest abilities to hit in the game while at the same time being her highest damaging ability in her kit means that if you miss it, you will lose out on tons of damage so keep practicing on hitting it. Lillia also has no heal or shielding in her kit meaning if you take damage, most of the time without sustain runes or items, the damage will be permanent but thats not a huge issue with lillia as she can negate tons of damage with her movespeed but its still an issue so try to dodge as much damage as possible.|
Now on with the rylai liandry build, with this build you should look to get blasting wand first but the playstyle is somewhat different than tear.. you certainly dont have as much mana so you should look to poke less but you certainly have much more damage than tear. Usually when I go rylai liandry I dont take ignite as I dont aggresivelly poke the enemy its a more passive 'scale up into teamfights' playstyle where you just focus on farming and once you have your 2 items powerspike thats when you can focus on doing some outplays. If up against a bad lane bully matchup like Renekton you should look to go a little tanky with rylai liandrys. You can even rush ninja tabi into frozen heart to stop his early game snowball as champions like Renekton and Darius were designed to absolutely stomp lane and extend their lead into teamfights. If you go full ap against them you will only suffer more as you are much more squishy so watchout in champ select if you feel its a hard match up which ill include in matchup sections soon, then change your rune into conqueror with first item tank into rylai liandrys and play it safe. That's how I usually play top lane ill cover jungle next if you dont play jungle you can skip this section and go to the teamfight section where I will be covering how to teamfight like an absolute boss.
Jungle warding is pretty simple with lillia, if you are starting red ask for your laners to ward blue for you and if you are starting blue ask the laner to ward red for you. Lillia is not really an invading jungle but just make sure to ward bushes 4 and 3 in the below picture if you are doing some camps and also ward the dragon so the enemy does not do it, ask your laners for help till you can get your runic echoes and then you do great dmg to objectives.
My second tip is freezing for laning; in short only damaging the minion wave when going for last hits and not using abilities on it. The wave will freeze and will take allot of time to push into you or the enemy giving you a lead as you can zone the enemy. You should freeze when you have an advantage vs an easy matchup for example freeze the wave and if he steps up to cs you do massive damage or even kill him. You can also freeze if you are getting ganked all the time, freeze the wave and let is push to you so you can farm next to your tower then the enemy jungler wont bother ganking you.
