General information

Illaoi Abilities

Description
Cooldowns

Prophet of an Elder God

Illaoi_P
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

IllaoiQ
Q

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

Harsh Lesson

IllaoiW
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

IllaoiE
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

IllaoiR
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
IllaoiW
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

IllaoiQ
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

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

IllaoiQQ

is a great poke tool and is great for wave control too. However, it is slightly more expensive than her

IllaoiWW

. If you can, try and use a terrain Tentacle instead of your

IllaoiQQ

to trade with the enemy. Essentially, they will do the same job at the cost of less mana!

Take advantage of your

IllaoiWW

auto-attack reset by (when applicable) walking up to the enemy, auto-attacking once and then using your

IllaoiWW

.

Illaoi’s Ultimate

IllaoiRR

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.
