Top 5 Builds for Illaoi

Illaoi, the Kraken Priestess is among the most OP champions in LoL. She is a straight-up Top-lane monster, beating everyone down with her tentacles. Her 1v1, 1v2 and 1v3 potential are insane and her laning phase is quite simple. You can easily zone out your enemy laner and get lots of free poke with your E.

She has only a few counters, and that only if the enemy is really skilled. Her passive summons periodically tentacles near terrain. They can be commanded to attack by Illoi’s other abilities. Her Q passively increases tentacle damage, while actively smashing a tentacle in front of her.

Her W makes her leap to an enemy and deal bonus damage while causing nearby tentacles to attack the target. Her E pulls out an enemy champion’s soul and a percentage of damage dealt to the soul is reflected to the champion; if the champion leaves E’s range, its soul returns and it is slowed while spawning additional tentacles and causing nearby tentacles to attack. Her R deals damage in an area around Illaoi, spawning one untargetable tentacle for each enemy champion hit.
