Reworked LeBlanc Guide
Here’s an in depth guide for the reworked assassin Champion LeBlanc.
The new ability kit
Passive: Sigil of Malice
(NEW) Leblanc’s abilities inflict Sigil of Malice, which can be detonated and consumed by her other abilities after a few seconds to deal bonus damage.
Q: Shatter Orb
(NEW) Fires an orb that damages an enemy. If the orb triggers Sigil of Malice it shatters, consuming the sigil and dealing damage to the nearest available Sigil of Malice.
Dashes to target location, dealing damage to all nearby enemies upon landing. Recasting Distortion within a few seconds returns Leblanc to her starting location.
E: Ethereal Chains
Launches illusionary chains in a direction, damaging and shackling the first target hit. If the target remains shackled for a few moments, they’ll take additional damage and become rooted.
(UPDATED) Leblanc becomes invisible for a short duration, creating a Mimic to take her place and cast a stronger version of one of her basic abilities. The Mimic lasts only for a few moments and expires if it takes damage from champions or turrets.
Mimicking Leblanc’s ultimate spawns a Mimic at a target location instead. Once formed, the Mimic will walk toward the nearest visible enemy champion, casting a non-damaging version of Leblanc’s most recently used ability upon arrival.
The first ability to max is W, the second Q and the third E.
The exact skilling order is:
W Q E W W R W Q W Q R Q Q E E R E E
Why should you max Q second?
The Q doesn’t feel so strong like it used to be. With the W it gives you that extra mobility which can help you win those trades.
If you’re not confident enough you should play safe and wait for a bank or roam. The second option is to start with a doran’s ring and play aggressive.
If you’re getting camped early, you need to buy a ward and place it on one of the sides and try to stay more on that side since you got vision there. Try to last hit and when you try to harass the opponent try to not get hit by the minions.
In the mid game you’ll deal a lot of damage. You will burst down squishies. With you’re power you can make comebacks possible to happen.
In this part of the game you basically want to make the biggest impact. Buy some wards, upgrade your sweeping trinket and assassinate people. In team fights try to focus on the carries.
