General information

Illaoi Abilities

Description
Cooldowns

Prophet of an Elder God

Illaoi_P
P

Periodically, Illaoi spawns a Tentacle on a nearby impassable terrain if no other Tentacles are nearby. Tentacles fully spawn after a 2-second delay and are untargetable for that time. Tentacles deal bonus physical damage to all enemies that it strikes when commanded to attack by her abilities. If the Tentacle hits at least one enemy champion, Illaoi will also heal up for 5% of her missing health.

Tentacle Smash

IllaoiQ
Q

Passive: Tentacles deal increased damage. Active: Illaoi summons a tentacle that slams down in the target direction, dealing physical damage before disappearing.

Harsh Lesson

IllaoiW
W

Illaoi's next Auto-Attack gains bonus range, bonus physical damage, and commands all Tentacles in range to attack her target. Shee will leap to her target if they are beyond her Auto-Attack range.

Test of Spirit

IllaoiE
E

Fires a projectile in the target direction, which stops upon hitting an enemy champion or reaching the maximum range. On hitting a champion, their spirit is pulled in front of Illaoi and the target is tetherd to the Spirit for a few seconds. When the Spirit is killed or the target moves too far away, the tether is severed, marking the target as a Vessel for 10 seconds, revealing the area around them for a few seconds, and slowing them massively. Any tentacle within the range of the target will attack them and a tentacle will also spawn periodically near the target.

Leap of Faith

IllaoiR
R

Slams her idol on the ground, dealing physical damage to nearby enemies. An additional Tentacle is summoned for 8 seconds for every enemy champion hit. The tentacles attack rapidly and are untargetable while the ability is active.

Basic combos

Illaoi Auto Attack Reset

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!

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.

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 Tentacle SmashQ is a great poke tool and is great for wave control too. However, it is slightly more expensive than her Harsh LessonW. If you can, try and use a terrain Tentacle instead of your Tentacle SmashQ to trade with the enemy. Essentially, they will do the same job at the cost of less mana!
Take advantage of your Harsh LessonW auto-attack reset by (when applicable) walking up to the enemy, auto-attacking once and then using your Harsh LessonW.
Illaoi’s Ultimate Leap of FaithR 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.
