Additionally, Illaoi builds dedicated to a particular skill tier can be seen by picking another division from the dropdown menu found above. The suggested Illaoi build will be focused on that division’s meta.
Best Illaoi Runes
If you are battling a well-mixed enemy team comp, you should really consider grabbing yourself the Conqueror, Presence of Mind, Legend: Tenacity, Last Stand, Revitalize, and Demolish runes. In recent matches, she won the greatest fraction of her rounds when built with these runes. However, if you are battling a more homogenous enemy team comp, such as an AD focused or a crowd control centric team, you should instead look further down to find the best Illaoi runes to win your particular round.

Guide to Playing with Illaoi
- Spreading your tentacles around the map is a good strategy. You can then use Harsh Lesson to command all tentacles within range to attack her target.
- Use Leap of Faith when there are multiple enemies nearby so that you spawn the max number of tentacles. This can dramatically shift a teamfight because the tentacles deal a lot of damage.
