Playing As LeBlanc LeBlanc
Playing Against LeBlanc LeBlanc
  • Stunning or silencing LeBlanc will prevent her from activating the return part of Distortion.png Distortion.
  • Stay behind minions to make Ethereal Chains.png Ethereal Chains difficult to land and force her to use Distortion.png Distortion in a suboptimal manner.


Ability Usage
  • Distortion.png Distortion is an effective method of harassment, as re-casting the spell will cause you to flash back to your casting position, giving an opportunity to deal damage with minimal risk of taking significant damage.
    • A quick Sigil of Malice.png Sigil of Malice followed by Distortion.png Distortion provides little chance for retaliation.
    • By targeting an opponent with Sigil of Malice.png Sigil of Malice, letting LeBlanc LeBlanc walk forward without other inputs, then casting Distortion.png Distortion to enter the casting range of Sigil, you will fire Sigil mid-dash.
  • Because of her no mana cost and fairly low cooldown ultimate, she may spam in lane if you want to create or minimize pressure.
  • If you are being chased, throw Ethereal Chains.png Ethereal Chains on the pursuer for the slow and potential snare.
  • The second damaging part of Ethereal Chains.png Ethereal Chains can also trigger the mark from Sigil of Malice.png Sigil of Malice.
  • When you end up in a team fight, you should consider utility of your spells over damage, and consider using Ethereal Chains.png Ethereal Chains as your Mimic.png Mimic spell for a double slow and longer snare.
  • If your goal is to assassinate a single target quickly, prepare by casting Sigil of Malice.png Sigil of Malice on a random target to ready Mimic.png Mimic, as its enhanced form grants the quickest burst and is not dependent on maintaining the leash for Ethereal Chains.png Ethereal Chains.
  • Mirror Image.png Mirror Image's clone acts like a pet. It will take commands similarly to Summon- Tibbers.png Summon: Tibbers. It is wise to manually control it for the means of confusing the opponent, as a clone heading in a nonsensical direction after being summoned clearly betrays the real LeBlanc LeBlanc to the enemy.
    • Remember to use Alt + Right-Click to move your Mirror Image.png Mirror Image's clone.
    • Mirror Image.png Mirror Image's clone is a champion type unit and therefore can also be hit by abilities only able to target champions such as Caitlyn Caitlyn's Ace in the Hole.png Ace in the Hole. Take advantage of this by trying to encourage your enemies to use their powerful champion targeting ultimates on your clone by putting yourself out of sight and controlling your clone like she were the original.
    • Keep in mind that your clone's auto-attacks deal no damage which can give her away if an enemy notices this.
Mastery Usage
Item Usage
  • While it may seem counter-intuitive, Athene&#039;s Unholy Grail item.png Athene's Unholy Grail is actually one of the best core items for LeBlanc LeBlanc. It affords her some cheap magic resist to increase her durability in lane, virtually eliminates her mana problems, and grants cooldown reduction to increase the uptime of her combos.
    • Against AD laners like Zed Zed or enemies whose spells you feel confident in dodging, Morellonomicon item.png Morellonomicon is a viable alternative.
    • Against laners with massive waveclear who stay completely out of range like Ziggs Ziggs, 2 Doran&#039;s Ring item.png Doran's Rings during early game provide cheap and highly effective stats since you will last-hit unhindered.
  • Mejai&#039;s Soulstealer item.png Mejai's Soulstealer can be especially powerful during laning phase if you aren't afraid of dying to a gank. Be warned that LeBlanc LeBlanc is a snowbally champion already, and dying will set you back much further than if you'd simply bought AP.
  • Haunting Guise item.png Haunting Guise can be a good early game choice for LeBlanc LeBlanc, as it increases durability and damage, while also negating early game Magic Resistance. It can also replace Sorcerer&#039;s Shoes item.png Sorcerer's Shoes in many builds, allowing the use of other boots without sacrificing Magic Penetration. Never upgrade it into Liandry&#039;s Torment item.png Liandry's Torment as the damage-over-time is worthless on a burst champion like LeBlanc LeBlanc.
  • Investing in an early Negatron Cloak item.png Negatron Cloak for magic resistance will significantly reduce her burst damage. Later in the game, you can build it into a Banshee&#039;s Veil item.png Banshee's Veil and disrupt her combo. Otherwise, if you are playing a squishy mage or AD carry, she will be able to burst you down even late game due to good scaling. Do not neglect magic resistance.
  • LeBlanc LeBlanc relies heavily on spell combos, especially with her Sigil of Malice.png Sigil of Malice and its mimic. Try to interrupt her spell combo in the middle of Sigil of Malice.png Sigil of Malice, as this will often force her back to wait for cooldown.
    • This makes Banshee&#039;s Veil item.png Banshee's Veil particularly effective against her as she has to land one of her non-targeted abilities before going full combo.
  • Be sure not to use a champion who relies on skillshots or delayed AoE damage to fight her, her quadruple moves (with both Distortion.png Distortions) can make her untouchable by champions such as Lux LuxXerath Xerath, Diana Diana, Ziggs Ziggs or Zyra Zyra.
  • Try to scare LeBlanc LeBlanc a bit to force her to use her dashes prior to a gank, as the long cooldown will make her an easy target.
  • Always wait for Mirror Image.png Mirror Image to trigger before targeting her with an ultimate like Demacian Justice.png Demacian Justice, because otherwise she will most likely get away with Distortion.png Distortion.
    • A common strategy against LeBlanc LeBlanc is using ignite while bursting her down can easily determine where the real LeBlanc is. 
    • Zed Zed is considered a good counterpick against LeBlanc LeBlanc since he deals more damage against her and Death Mark.png Death Mark can be used to identify the real LeBlanc LeBlanc.
    • Fiora Fiora can also identify the real LeBlanc using Grand Challenge.png Grand Challenge, aside from that, she can use Riposte.png Riposte to block all of LeBlanc's abilities especially if Fiora manages to block the snare from Ethereal Chains.png Ethereal Chains as it can turn the tide in Fiora's Favor.
  • LeBlanc LeBlanc is extremely squishy so she is very vulnerable to hard CC and focus. Taking her out of the fight early prevents her from being able to burst down a carry.
  • Mirror Image.png Mirror Image's stealth does not break the autoattacking AI's lock on her. Allowing the autoattacking AI to continue without interruption can finish her off.
  • LeBlanc LeBlanc is notorious for being able to burst down AP mid laners. However, because she specializes on bursting one target, having your jungler gank during her dives will cripple her aggression significantly and cause her to fall off prematurely.
  • Warding brushes will make it harder for LeBlanc LeBlanc to juke using Distortion.png Distortion.
  • LeBlanc LeBlanc has poor farming capabilities; if you're unable to make trades safely, then simply clear minion waves quickly to force her back.
  • Silencing LeBlanc LeBlanc can prevent her from pulling off her combo or from juking your team.
