Guide to Countering LeBlanc as Aphelios

Tips for Playing as Aphelios against LeBlanc

Each of Aphelios' weapons have different strengths, so try to find the right situation for your current weapons.

Advice to Win Against LeBlanc

Attacking LeBlanc first avoids most of her tricks, especially if she's recently used her dash, Distortion.

Stunning or silencing LeBlanc will prevent her from activating the return part of Distortion.

LeBlanc's ultimate can create fake LeBlancs during her spellcast or, rarely, at a distant position.

The fake LeBlanc created at a distance will always run at the nearest Champion, cast a harmless spell, then immediately disappear.
