Counter rating is our own statistic that factors in counter kills, overall kills, early lead ratio, comeback ratio, and win percent to give the whole picture of that champion's effectiveness as a counter pick.

Illaoi draws the presence of her god, spawning a tentacle on nearby terrain if no other tentacles are nearby (20−7.25 seconds cooldown, depending on level). Tentacles will not attack on their own, but can be made to slam by Illaoi's abilities.

Slam deals 10−180 (+1.2 of attack damage) (+40% of ability power) physical damage (depending on level). Hitting at least one enemy champion restores 5% missing health to Illaoi.

Illaoi pulls the spirit from an enemy champion for 7 seconds. The spirit can be damaged like a champion, with 25 / 30 / 35 / 40 / 45% (+8% per 100 attack damage) of that damage echoing to its owner.

If the spirit dies or the target leaves its range, the target becomes marked for 10 seconds and is slowed by 80% for 1.5 seconds. Marked enemies spawn Tentacles every 5 / 4 / 3 seconds.

Tentacles will automatically Slam at spirits and marked enemies once every 5.5 / 4.5 / 3.5 seconds.

For the next 8 seconds, Tentacles are untargetable, Slam 50% faster and Harsh Lesson has a 2 second cooldown.
