A bit of information on Illaoi

Illaoi is a bulky champion excelling for harassing and team fights.She is built for drawn out fights with her ridiculous inbuilt life-steal and massive AOE damage. Unfortunately she has no CC or mobility so running teleport is almost a necessity for lane pressure.

Pros and Cons

+Amazing Harass
+Hard to kill with lot's of life-steal
+Great AOE damage making her ideal for 1v5s.
-Her burst requires that she's near her tentacles
-No mobility or escape without burning flash
-Hardly any range
-Exposed if her burst misses or the enemy tanks or nullifies it.
-literally no CC

Runes

Resolve
Grasp of the undying
this rune is arguably the best rune on Illaoi because of how well it works with her passives Life-steal and her decent bulk. the other runes are practically useless on her (Illaoi has no hard CC and top is a solo lane so the only time Guardian would be used is when your jungler ganks.)

Demolish
demolish helps Illaoi a lot when it comes to damaging turrets because of her slow auto-attack speed allowing her to deal a chunk of damage every few minutes.

Second wind
second wind helps you stay alive and in lane so you can continue harassing your lane opponent and gaining more CS then if you took Conditioning or Chrysalis. Aside from that you won't be noticing it much.

Overgrowth
Any bonus permanent health on Illaoi is great allowing for you too stay in lane longer the other 2 aren't as useful as overgrowth.

Domination

Taste of blood
More life-steal is always great on Illaoi.

Ravenous hunter
Free life-steal for killing Enemy champions? a definite Yes.
Back to Top

Skill Sequence

R->E->Q->W

R
level ult whenever you can like with every other champion.

E
Slows vessels making it easy to catch up and get a free kill also good harass.

Q
Basic damage and great Pressure.

W
Great damage(especially when near tentacles), decent gap-closer and Your main damage tool in team-fights and Skirmishes.

Spells

Flash
A necessity on literaly every champion in the game. Best offensive and defensive summoner spell in the game allowing for ganks, gap closes, escapes and engage, no different for Illaoi.

Teleport
Great spell for pressure in laning phase, split pushing, joining team fights and Global pressure. Used on almost every top laner Illaoi, is no different
Back to Top

Team Work

Illaoi Works really well with champions with good CC too hold them in place for her burst (Ornn,Galio and Anivia) and Champions with good support mobility (Sona and Janna) to get Illaoi into the middle of the fight.

A good team comp would be
Top-Illaoi (you)
Jung-Amumu
Mid-Anivia
Adc-Jhin
Sup-Janna

or

Top-Illaoi (you)
Jung-Gragas
Mid-Aurelion sol
ADC-Xayah
Sup-Sona

Comps to look out for

Top-Gnar
Jung-Nocturn
Mid-Yasuo
ADC-Caitlyn
Sup-Bard

or

Top-Yorik
Jung-Graves
Mid-Malhazar
ADC-Draven
Sup-Morgana
