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.
