Jungle guide - Lillia 12.23.
- Dark Harvest
Rune choice is relatively simple to make. If the enemy team is mainly squishy champions that wont build magic resist, you will always go dark harvest page so that you can do the most damage. On the other hand if you are up against multiple tanks or bruisers, you should take conqueror as it allows you to sustain more and be in the fight for longer.
- Skill Path 1
- Skill Path 2
Skill order is determined from game to game by looking at the map. If you are free to full clear your jungle you will level up q, w, q but if you are afraid of getting invaded take e at level 3 for the safety the slow provides ;it doesnt slow clear that much;. Both orders will be done full clearing around 3.15, 3.25.
- Early items
Starter items depend on the game. You will go blue smite if you need a way to chase prime targets that will try and kite you, and go red smite if you will duel against the enemy jungler a lot.
First base you should look for a boots dark seal base but if you are ahead you can either go fiendish codex or even finish lost chapter.
Core items will always be Liandry's Anguish and mostly Zhonya's Hourglass. Liandry's is a must have item. Zhonya's will be usefull when you are up against burst champions or in general ad (which is most games). Liandry's is great with Lillia's passive as it extends the duration of her poison while Liandry's burn is ticking. Zhonya is a great item because it can be used after ulting to guarantee your ult sleeping.
You will buy Ionian boots most games, but if you REALLY need tenacity or the resistances of Mercurys or Steelcaps.
If you are against squishy champions or are the only ap on your team you will go the damage build. You can make one alternation with this build if you really need more hp you can go demonic instead of horizon. Every item here synergises with Lillia's kit. This build is best with the Dark harvest rune page.
If you are against burst champions or need a sudo-tank go the Bruiser build because most assasins cant do much against the high hp and armor from zhonya's.
As well if you need a tank on your team you can go the tank build. If you go this build your first back will always be Tear of the goddess and Dark seal. From there you can build into Demonic and finish Fimbulwinter after. After that go standard tank builds with lots of hp. This build is best with the Conqueror rune page.
Lillia is a very fast clear and in most games you want to start on red (If you have a leash) path to krugs then raptors into wolves (smite the big wolf) gromp and blue (once grmop is at about half hp walk to blue auto it and stand at the edge of their range to double camp). This is your standard path that you should go every game but you should change your path depending on your lane states from game to game.
Lillia is deceptively strong in the early game. You can win most 1v1 fights in the early game. Depending on the matchup you should look for early fights but focus on full clearing as Lillia scales really well. Focus objectives after full clear but if your lanes are pushing you should leave your clear almost always for the free objective. Only continue clearing if you are about to hit big level spikes like 6, 9, 11, 16.
Lillia is really weak against assasin champions. If you want to make her work you have to ban out assasins like khazix, zed, qiyana. The assasins tend to absolutely blast lillia as she has no peel until level 6 and even then its unreliable as it takes 2 seconds or more to cast and is relying on you hitting an ability before getting 1shot.
Lillia is quite strong against bruisers and tanks such as xin zhao, viego, nunu, skarner, lee sin and so on. She is especially good against champs like nunu as he has no way of catching you if he doesnt land his first ability. These matchups are really easy as long as you kite well.
There arent many neutral matchups but the key ones are evelynn, hecarim and trundle. The evelynn matchup is a farm festt until 6. At 6 evelynn will lose most scenarios but as the game goes on and she gets more levels she becomes a bigger threat. Use lillias e to facecheck brushes and make sure to build zhonya here. Against hecarim be mindfull of cheese as he is just a better lillia before level 9. His plan is to win in the early game so dont give him places to gank. Make sure you countergank him to keep him down. As for trundle fight him ONLY AND ONLY when he uses pillar on someone else. He always wins if he gets to you but thats IF he does.
