Best comps for Illaoi



  • 5 Country
  • 1 Illbeats
  • 3 Bruiser
  • 2 Guardian
  • 2 Mosher
  • 2 Emo
  • 2 Executioner

With Samira as the primary character—who possesses the attribute by default—and Urgot as your second-tier three champion, who delivers a ton of damage, this matchup is all about the Country characteristic.

The comp requires calling out Hecarim, the enormous, tanky, midnight dreadsteed with a high damage output.

This is a quick reroll to level 8, as hiring personnel would be quite expensive, particularly during a prosperous economy.

best team for this build:

1. Because Samira is both an executioner and a member of the country trait, she is the primary harm dealer from the background in this setup.

2. Urgot is a little more brazen because he shares a country and a mosher and is the second big damage dealer on the front lines.

3. Vex is a great option because he and Samira both possess the executioner and emo traits.

4. With both the guardian and emo attributes, Amumu is your primary tank on the front lines.

5. Tahm Kench is a fantastic tank early in the game. He gains more health and possesses both bruiser and country attributes.

6. The fourth country that you share with the guardian characteristic is Thresh.

7. Sett is a great option for both receiving and dealing damage as your third bruiser and second mosher.

8. Thanks to her special Illbeats characteristic, your tier 5 bruiser, Illaoi, has amassed an enormous amount of health and is able to call out spirit tentacles.

  • 3 Heartsteel
  • 2 Sentinel
  • 2 8-bit
  • 2 Bruiser

In this combination, Caitlyn is the main source of damage and the focus of the rapidfire trait.

Additionally, the heartsteel trait would let you to play more nimbly and do a ton of damage when Ezreal is in the back rows.

For this comp, the ideal group is:

1. The main source of harm is Caitlyn, the headliner who has both the rapidfire and the 8-bit attribute.

2. Ezreal is the second damage dealer in the back rows thanks to his big shot and heartsteel traits, which provide him a ton of extra damage.

3. The second huge shot is Jhin, a tier 5 back row player with a high damage output.

4. Sett is a fantastic tank in the front rows who can also do a lot of damage, sharing the bruiser and heartsteel.

5. Thresh could be set up to take use of his potential to startle a lot of members; he would be far more potent if he had a guardian emblem.

6. Illaoi is a tier 5 bruiser with the unique illbeats trait, which summons spirit tentacles to do additional damage.

7. Garen is a fantastic fit because to his 8-bit traits and shared sentinel.

8. Because of K'Sante, the tier 1 sentinel and heartsteel, you can activate the heartsteel as soon as feasible.

  • 3 Jazz
  • 2 Bruiser
  • 2 Mosher

Ideal group for this comp:

5. Miss Fortune is a player for the Jazz and is quite strong from the back rows.

6. Yorick is a tier 5 mosher who vanquishes his opponents and sends them to their demise by using his monsters.

7. Illaoi must simultaneously engage her bruiser and illbeats traits in order to call forth the spirit tentacles.
