The ultimate detailed Nilah guide to dominate! ( 13.21 )

How to play NILAH!
Hello everyone! I'm Darkgoatie! I started playing Nilah this season and it was a pretty enjoyable experience for me. I peaked rank 80 on Nilah in TR, and I will try to give you valuable information that I learned throughout my Nilah career.

This guide will include:
- Strengths/ Weaknesses to playing Nilah
- Laning / Adapting to your support
- Combos
- Skirmishes ( SOON! )
- Lategame teamfighting ( SOON! )
- Playstyle when snowballing ( SOON! )
- Playstyle when behind ( SOON! )
Strengths/Weaknesses of Nilah


- Great against tanks + Insane armor penetration
- Insane burst
- Crazy healing
- Scales great
- Destroy Turrets in 5s


- Easily punished for farming
- Lacks poke
- Melee
- No sustain
Nilah can abuse how fast Conqueror stacks with her abilities, here are some combos for different situations.

Engage without R

> > AA > > > AA > = Conqueror

Engage with R

> > AA > > > > AA = Conqueror

Note: You can add Flash at the beginning your combo for a surprise attack if there are 2+ enemies grouped up. ( Only do this after completing ).
Laning / Adapting to Support
As an adc, you are very reliant on your support. Your support will almost NEVER adapt to your playstyle in soloQ. You have to adapt to your support's playstyle, which I am going to explain below. You can have your own playstyle late-game, but you are your support's slave early game.

Playing with feeder support

In low elo, your support may, can and will feed. Your lane will seem unwinnable. This case will mostly be seen with supports such as: Swain, Shaco and AP Malphite.

I reccommend letting the enemy push and asking your jungler for a gank (they probably won't). Try to average at least 6cs/min without dying. It is very likely that you've already lost lane, so focus on not feeding anyone and not falling behind.

TL;DR: Farm safely, don't fight, focus on scaling and not falling behind.

Playing with tank/engage support

These supports usually have great engage and synergise well with nilah. They are strong and very aggressive at levels 1-6 and might cause a snowballing lane. Best examples for this are: Leona, Thresh, Nautilus, Pantheon, Alistar, Taric.

You might go Domination as your second rune if you are sure of winning those early game fights in lane. Otherwise go Magical Footwear + Future's Market. ( Mostly you won't need Biscuit Delivery because your support will try to engage if enemies try to poke ).

Support itemization: Do NOT ask your support to build Locket of the Iron Solari, instead ask them to build Shurelya's Battlesong (preferred) or Evenshroud

TL;DR: Play aggressive, wait for to engage.

Playing with enchanter support

This type of support is great for sustaining in lane. Even if you lose lane, you both scale so it won't be that big of a deal unless you have over-fed the enemy. Best enchanters that synergise with Nilah: Soraka, Sona, Janna, Yuumi

It's best for your support to build Moonstone Renewer, because most enchanters already have built-in Movement Speed boost. This item also utilizes Joy Unending, which makes any shield or heal seem insanely broken.
