Threats & Synergies
At my gold-platinum elo, this char is pure canser. Whenever i don't ban him - i regret it very often. You can't slow him with E. Putting him to sleep is very slow process, and good Yi still can dodge final effect with his Q. Also, Lillia slowly burns her enemies - Yi just cuts everyone into oblivion. Aaand, almost always - you can't outrun him. His W probably will outheal your Q+W combo - killing him also might be hard. If Yi gets ahead - then it's over. Consider playing accurately: don't feed him, monitor Dragon\Nashor pits, COUNTERGANK him! Don't fight 1x1. He is strong at dueling you even early, so be very carefull and ping for your team to help. Pick fights with your E+R when team is nearby - that way your ult won't be completely useless, unless he dodges it, that is( Yi-feeder is, luckily, absolutely useless (no CC, no dmg). Shame, i meet Yi-Gods much more often.
A good rengar will bully you through the entire game. He is stronger and it's hard to outrun him in the jungle. Ward everything, ping for your team to help, buy early armor and... BEWARE OF EVERY BUSH! Good rengar may jump on your fresh ward and then jump on your head right after - a true horror of a champion
An elusive MIDER. He has all tools to delete you after level 6 and armor, most likely, won't save you against his full combo. In early-mid approach with caution and consider early Zhonya - if you fight him a lot. P.S. Can cancel your ult with good timings of his
Again, typically a MIDER. You can't do much to Katarina if she gets ahead. That means, she will spin and crush your team faster then you may put her asleep. Not to notice, she can oneshot you in the process... Consider killing her early and\or pick her from the distance with E+R.
He is stronger in early and may simply jump on your head ar first glance - works well for him. May counterjungle. Keep your distance and be very carefull. Don't fight 1x1, unless ahead Luckily, Kha isn't as mobile as higher threats and armor shuts him quite nicely. If you (and your team) don't feed him early - later you become stronger.
Assasin Kayn is a big pain in the ass! You can't outrun him, and he can dodge your ulti by getting into you by his. Raast is a bit less of a threat, because he is slow and it is easier for you to dodge him. Still, beware of his ult! Until level 5 he isn't much of a threat, but midgame will be hard, get ready He might take ignite - keep that thing in mind
Leesin matchup varies, due to his difficulty. Good Lee sins are big threats, but not good Lee sins may be just constant feeders NOTE: Lee sin's will often invade your buffs early. Ping to teammates for help. It's hard for Lee to hit Q on such a fast moving target as Lillia and you can outplay him by playing accurately. Consider early armor if situation is bad. Lee becomes weaker late (if not fed to extreme)
Strong early - may invade and may ruin you game. Play accurately and ping to allies. If your jungle is warded - counterjungle his part when he appears
I met enough Caitlyn to consider her a real threat. Stormrazor + firecannon item combo is pain to deal with - she can start an unexpected fight by basically grounding you with 75% slow from save range and if some sort of Morgana follows up with stun - you may be dead in seconds. Also, range, W and E allows Caitlyn to stay safer in teamfights. If enemy Caitlyn is fed and knows what she is doing - it will be very hard to turn the tables (alone)
I would call 1 support who I absolutely hate - it's Morgana. Her E allows her to cleance your R at any moment of it's charge (before hitting enemy or after - doesn't matter). That reliably protects 1 ally and feels extremely unfair (i mean, it takes no effort for her to put E after your R). Her Q is always a pain in the butt too. Wait for her to waste E. OR hit multiple targets with R - she can't protect all. P.S. she works exceptionally well with Caitlyn
Sylas is kinda an assasin. Also, he can make good use of Lillia's R. I seen this matchup only once - when i countered enemy Lillia by Sylas. Was an easy game, but i can't say that Lillia played well, so... An even matchup for now I may note: Sylas has extremely bad first clear. But good dueling power. Take that into account
I met Teemo jungle two times and both times i was like "WTF, why he damages so much"? After buying Bloodrazor, Teemo becomes a big threat even if he is 0\2, like in my case he was. He deals mix dmg. He also clears Dragons quite fast - monitor them with wards and stay close. Last, but not the least - his mushrooms are pain in the ass and they turn you into snail for a while. Respect his damage in midgame and don't fight 1x1. Even if you with an item ahead, he might still kill you. Take oracle lens, if you didn't. Prey to God your team don't feed this beast But if you and team don't feed him - it shouldn't be that bad - Teemo is predictable, after all
Dangerous, but managable. If he fears you in the early fight - he stilll probably won't kill you. I killed Nocturnes in scuttle fights quite a few times... After 6 he is a much bigger threat. Consider buying armor. Consider sitting near your pushing teammates - Nocturnes can gank pretty easily - so it's harder for them to refrain from opportunity Mid to late you often can just outrun him with your speed, and your armor won't allow him to kill you even if he tries. That is - unless he is fed
Another horse, huh? I feel like in a fair 1x1 Lillia is stronger. But if Hecarim gets ahead - he can roll over you and kill you fast - and there is no way to outrun this beast initiation. Dead man's plate is a good counter - buy it earlier if he kills you
Evelynn is small threat early. Don't get caught into her W, try to avoid her first Q. Consider invading. After 6 she becomes dangerous, and for your team - more than for you. Generally, Lilia at full speed is fast enough to evade Eves all-in, but... there may be difficulties (like Eve + Yuumi \ Eve flashing \ your horrible disposition \ horribly feeding teammates leading to her dominance everywhere). Consider buying early Spectre's Cowl if she oneshots you. Maybe even Adaptive Helm, though it's better to do after Liandry's Torment. If she can't oneshot you - she can't win 1x1.
Ap amumu is basically an assasin with stuns - who may start oneshotting you if gets ahead (and ignores resists and hp quite well). Tanky amumus shouldn't deal that much trouble though (you shred tanks well later on). He is somewhat weak early and if you manage to dodge his Q - you will win trades. Consider invades and ambushes. Catching his Q early leads to you losing ~half hp, and second Q most likely will kill you. Dodge Q! Then smash him! Easy! (actually not)
I have yet to see a good Fiddle on Lillia. You have quite a good speed to break his drains in the midgame, also, this exact speed may make his ult useless. But "Fear is your enemy", so "Tenacity is your friend". Also, you may consider Adaptive helmet, later on
I saw Kindred a few times and she never was a threat. That been said, i had a good reacting team. Most likely, Kindred that takes a lot of her marks IS dangerous - so, try your best not to feed her
This guy has dangerous ult, he has a stun and can do surprise ammouns of damage early on - respect that. He is very likely to ambush you early. He can buy Righteous Glory and become quite swift engager - keep this in mind. Otherwise, in direct fair fights - Volibear is quite pokeable, and is somewhat similar to a Warwick, with his kit. P.S. HE CAN CANCEL YOUR ULT WITH GOOD TIMING OF HIS! Keep this in mind!
Beware of his ult, take into account his healing on low hp - and otherwise you can just poke him into hell with your speed.
I had a fun time jumping around invader-Udyr and killing him) Your speed is like his super-counter and he can't do a thing to you, unless you making clear mistakes (or he flashes) Still, Udyr most likely will counterjungle and will take objectives. Ping for your team to act whenever he does something inappropriate... AND HIT HIM WITH THE STICK
I met somthing like 3 jungle Trundles and all of them were easy as hell. Then i met one smarter and he punished me for my carelessness. SO. You can poke Trundle kinda easily. But this guy has E pillar and is strong early - don't get caught out of position! In mid-late he shouldn't be able to kill you, unless he gets ahead
Same with the other pokable champions, you may jump around Shyvana and hit her with Q constantly. After she gets her Ult - try not to get hit with it. And with it's E. Luckily, Lillia is good champ for dodging. Again, as with the Udyr - monitor objectives. Shyvana may contest dragon as soon as it spawns - ward it
Reksai will have hard times trying to kill you, if you are PREPARED. Unless ahead, she doesn't have much dmg. She also doesn't have the best mobility - so jumping around with full Q stacks puts you at great advantage. Just keep in mind she may E-stun you - dodge it, and it should be fine. If she gets fed - buy Dead man's plate earlier.
Zac is not a threat for you - he will have hard times landing his E on Lillia and she deals more damage in long perspectives. He is more dangerous for laners so help them
After you put target asleep, she can unleash her full combo on a nice range. Also, she can simply followup your R with her R - with quite a big burst. Also, you can followup her Q with your E+R combo. All in all, her CC and her range damage pairs extremely well with Lillia
Can followup your R with her for a nice boom. Or with W for a chain stun.
Your sleep works similar to her, so it's obvious a nice synergy with her R+Q combo
Speed up, revive, aoe stuns - this old man has everything you may need!
She can follow your ult nicely
Her Q is a strong follow-up after your ult. Your E->R is a strong follow-up for her Q. Also, when you have Morgana - enemy won't! Hooray! (in draft picks that is)
Champion Build Guide
This is not indepth guide, but more of tips and tricks guide. I want also to gather here information about counterpicks and matchups
What can i say about myself: I play lol since season 2, yet mainly i play for fun different gamemodes and avoid playing ranked too much. After Lillia release i started to play rankeds quite a lot. (mainly because i hate Nexus Blitz, and my normals, for whatever reason, are harder then rankeds).
At the moment I am at Platinum. I have played around 100 ranked games on Lillia and have 55% winrate on her.
I don't know how to format guides and i am not interested in that at the moment... so it won't be that shiny. Plain text hardcore sh*t guide
Sory foar mai bed inglis, ples
0) Basic fighting
(use E and W accurately)
Run around the target, hitting them with Q and autos. Also use E as a slow when you sure to hit. Hitting W is the hardest - it slows you down, it may put you in danger, it may miss (hitting outside of centre is pretty useless), it may be cancelled! Be VERY accurate with W
Fighting immobile targets is pretty easy and fun, while avoiding their skillshots. Mordekaiser is one of the examples
On the other hand, mobile targets like, let's say, Katarina - may jump on your head and start killing you (pretty fast!) so fighting them is hard and often a thing to avoid.
1) Classic full damage combo:
E from a distance, then R, after sleep - W, after waking up - AA+ Q. Then run around pressing Q and making autoattacks unless target dies (if didn't already).
2) Reliable combo:
run into the enemy, then
Gaining full speed stacks before engage will give you an edge.
3) Teamfight risky ultra combo:
Flash + Q + R
depending on situation, this might be the gamewinning move. It also may be a pretty stupid suicide. Best used when following a tank.
This way, you catch enemies offguard and may put to sleep 4-5 targets at once. If your team uses this wisely - it will be a win
While hard to pull off nicely, it's good to keep such possibility in head when the fight is nearly
2) Whenever you take red buff - hit that chicken camp nearby. And then keep hitting it with Q. Healing from talisman (item) this way is enormous, while it takes almost zero effort to activate such strat
Whenever possible, you want to gain speed stacks from you passive (and hold them at max 5). Q+W+E combo into a jungle camp is already 3 stacks + you can get another Q while running away with camp following you. That makes quick gathering of speed stacks - a good setup for a gank and generally a good way to enter enemy half of the map. If someone meets you - you can either run from them into safety OR start a fight with your maximum speed, which is an amazing advantage
4) You can also keep your speed stacks by throwing E at far targets, such as minions far away. It will refresh your passive
5) You can also gather speed from minions, and hitting them with inner circle of the Q deals less dmg to them - in case you want to leave farm to your carries
6) If things go terribly wrong - don't hesitate to use R and simply run away. It's better then dying
7) In teamfights: Sometimes, you may want to hold on your ultimate, until you hit as many targets as possible. Sometimes, it is better to launch it immediatly to erase the enemy carry.
I may note that hitting many targets is harder but much better and reliable, so it's often worth not to rush. (Carries were covered way too often when i put to sleep only them and remember - YOUR W MAY BE CANCELLED!)
8) Direct gank option:
If line is pushed, Lillia can gank directly along the line because of her speed. For example, while being at a red side bot line:
You may gather speed stacks at Gromp and then, make the last Q hit on that frog in the tribush and then charge directly into the enemy botlaners. You can keep your speed by Q-ing the minions, then reach champions, Q again + Ult. If you manage to put to sleep both - it's a double kill for your team. With flash, it's even easier
Without ultimate, it's still possible to get kills, depending on your botlane. You hitting your E may matter a lot.
9) Remember - Lillia is not a tank, even though she builds tanky in lategame. Without tanks (fat dudes with CC) your team will be at disadvantage, and it may be specifically devastating against enemies like Yi or Katarina, who require CC to stop their advance. Consider picking something else, if situation requires... or accept the fact that your chances of winning will be lower
10) A bunch of champions may avoid Lillia's ultimate in different ways . Examples: Vladimir (W), Fizz (E), Yasuo (W, may save allies too), Fiora (W), Kayn (ult), Braum (E protects)... A lot of champions with invulnerability frames can dodge it (like Yi, Camille, Shaco etc). Hell, even Sett can cast his Ult and cansel yours at the same time!
TAKE THAT INTO ACCOUNT and try to cast your ulti when their protection is on cd. Or you may fail miserably! Aspecially the Windwall - Yasuo's are everywhere
The most horrorful is Morgana - she can cast her shield to basically cleance your ult while it is charging - and she can cast in on whoever is in need. Unfair(
11) Normally, Lillia have VERY healthy clear (with talisman). Some details:
- Blue buff is slow - just run around him hitting Q and AA from the distance - you will avoid most of his attacks, this staying at full health
- Red buff is harder to kite. But there is even easier strat. Hit Raptor camp before fighting Red - and keep hitting raptors while they run back and forth with Q. You will remain at 100% health, while tanking Red with your head. Balanced!
- Wolfes damage you a little. Keep running around to minimize that.
- Krugs are kitable just the same way as blue. Being accurate will leave you with full health even without casting smite.
- Raptors ("chicken") - amazing camp, you can always use them for healing (Just hit Q and run away) and for getting speed boost while heading... wherever you go
- Gromp - feels like the most dangerous camp, that catually can hurt you, aspecially early. Gromp also is somewhat kite-able, but it's harder to do + will waste you more time. I suggest casting smite here
