General information

illaoi Abilities

Description
Cooldowns

Prophet of an Elder God

P

Illaoi spawns a Tentacle on nearby impassable terrain. Tentacles heal Illaoi when they deal damage. They only attack when commanded by her abilities.

Tentacle Smash

Q

Illaoi slams into the ground and summons a Tentacle which slams in the aimed direction and disappears.

Harsh Lesson

W

Illoai's next basic attack gains bonus range and causes her to leap to her target if they're out of range. She commands all Tentacles to attack her target.

Test of Spirit

E

Illaoi shoots a skillshot in a target direction. If it hits a champion, she pulls out their spirit which is tethered to her. The spirit can be attacked, dealing damage to the tethered champion.

Leap of Faith

R

Illaoi jumps into the air before slamming into the ground, dealing damage to nearby enemies. For each enemy hit, a Tentacle is spawned for 8 seconds.

Basic Combos

Illaoi Auto Attack Reset

AA
W
AA

This is not unique to Illaoi, but since her W resets her auto attack, it is important to know. Always auto attack first, then use your W for an empowered auto!

Ultimate Setup

E
R
W
Q

This combo is the best way to maximize Illaoi's Ultimate damage potential and healing. You will want to have at least one tentacle set up near by; the more you have, the better this combo will be.

Trade

E
W
Q
AA
AA
W

This combo can be used either defensively or offensively. Illaoi can use this to trade back once an opponent disengages, or as an harrassment tool. This combo is best used with one or more tentacles are nearby.

Quick tips to play Illaoi

Illaoi's

Q is her best poke tool and also her best wave control tool too. However, it is slightly more expensive than her
W
. If you can use a terrain tentacle instead of a
Q
to do the same job it will help you save mana- especially in the early.

The spirit from Illaoi’s

E can be hard to finish off under the following conditions: the opponent is very tanky, or the enemy can damage you in rapid succession. This is why it is important to max this ability first since the duration and damage scales.

Illaoi’s

R has a brief moment of unstoppability at the beginning. This can be used to dodge critical crowd control that would otherwise limit your damage potential.
