Everything you need to know to get started playing Lillia in one place

I'm Doubtfull and its my mission to make jungle knowledge easily accesible for everyone

Welcome to my guide! If you have any more questions or would like to join a fast growing community of Jungler's who want to improve check out Jungle Theory

My favorite way to learn a new champion is to practice their clear in the practice tool for 30-60 minutes, so that is what I would recommend you do.

Standard Clear

Lillia's standard clear is pretty much always going to be Red Buff > Krugs > Raptors > Wolves >Blue Buff> Scuttle . If you get a good leash its possible to fit Gromp into the rotation and get to scuttle around 3:18, but that is a bit advanced.

Clear Example shown here by Jungle Clear God Phylaris:
Team Fighting with Lillia is pretty simple. You want to spam your E Swirlseed on CD when people start grouping up for the poke and to look for picks with your Ult Lilting Lullaby.

When a fight eventually breaks out, you want to try to be poking with your Q Blooming Blows on CD to keep your stacks up. Try to keep track of the enemy CDs and when you see the angle, go for the Flash Q into R Lilting Lullaby. This is easier to do safely if you purchased a Zhonya's Hourglass.

Your W Watch Out! Eep! slows you down a bit late game and requires you to be right on top of someone. use this ability cautiously. I can't tell you how many times I've died because I used a W aggressively when it wasn't necessary.

Below is a great example of how to win a team fight using the Flash R combo:
Here I'm going to put a lot of information that I've picked up after hundreds of Lillia games that I think you will find useful.

Farming Playstyle

I've found a lot of success playing Lillia similar to a Karthus early game. Essentially just hard farming and looking for ganks when available. You scale fairly well and your clear is really good. Top tier once you get Liandry's Anguish. I usually have an average of 7/min CS.

Gank With Camps

Lillia wants to gank with her Q Blooming Blows fully stacked. This means that I usually only gank lanes if there are camps or a scuttle near them. For example, after doing a standard full clear rotation I might base and head to my Krugs . If the opposing lane is pushed into my turret on that side of the map, I'll look to gank after I stack my q.

Blooming Blows is Life

Your Q is everything on Lillia. It is incredibly important that you keep your stacks up while skirmishing/clearing/ganking. Sometimes it is better to be patient with your Q and not necessarily cast it on CD. If you miss, it can leave you dead in the water, or keep you from being able to follow up and finish a kill. A master Lillia player never drops her stacks. Remember you can also keep your stacks up by Q'ing minions!

Patience in the Key

Your E Swirlseed is a very easy ability to dodge. A mistake I frequently made early on was leading some of my ganks with E when it wasn't necessary (I had Q Blooming Blows move speed to gap close and didn't need the slow.) Sometimes its better to wait until you are closer to the target and have slowed them with Chilling Smite before you go for the E.

Hold the R

- Your passive Dream-Laden Bough lasts for 3 seconds. Often times its better to not cast your R Lilting Lullaby the moment your ability lands. This gives your other abilities time for their CDs to reset, and can give your team mates a chance to follow up (I usually spam ping "on-the-way" when I am about to cast my ultimate)

Your W is Really Hard to Land

Your W Watch Out! Eep! is a very difficult ability to land onto moving targets. This is why we max this ability last. Do not just cast your W because its off CD, save it for when the target is slowed or CC'd, or as an escape tool (cast as you are about to get cc'd to reposition yourself).

Beware Insomniac's

Some champions just won't fall asleep no matter how hard you try. Lillia's ult Lilting Lullaby is one of her key defensive tools, and there are many champions in the game that have ways of avoiding falling asleep. Beware these champions. To name a few... Vladimir (pool), Rek'Sai (ult), Yone (E spirit thing), Kayn ult. Keep in mind these champions (and many, many more) have easy ways to get around your R, when you are thinking about fighting them.
Though Lillia is a hard champion to play, she really doesn't have too many "Combos". Here are a few scenarios for you though:

You land E Swirlseed and cast your ult Lilting Lullaby. Auto attack the target if possible as they are falling asleep. Where they land, cast your W Watch Out! Eep! and smite as soon as the damage lands. Then take cast your Q Blooming Blows before they can react.

The FULL damage combo is slightly different, and that is when you proc your R Lilting Lullaby with your Q Blooming Blows. This means the rest of your abilities are off of CD. When the target falls asleep, you lob your E Swirlseed and dunk it on them with your W Watch Out! Eep!. Smite at the same time the damage lands and do the fade away Q for maximum damage output.
