From runes to items, gameplay tips amd more, we've put together a guide to help you master playing LeBlanc in the midlane in League of Legends.

LeBlanc Rune Choices

Core Items

Luden's Tempest

3200 Gold

Cosmic Drive

3000 Gold


Luden's Tempest is a core item for most midlane mages, and LeBlanc is no different. 

Cosmic Drive synergises well with the Electrocute rune, for damage and move speed, and is generally a solid mage item. 

Other good choices include Void StaffZhonya's Hourglass, and Shadowflame.

Starting Item & Boots

Corrupting Potion

500 Gold

Sorcerer's Shoes

1100 Gold

Skill Order

While your choices may differ according to how the game progresses, the typical LeBlanc skill priority is:

R > W > Q > E

Summoner Spells

These are the summoner spells most typically taken by LeBlanc in this role. Naturally, this may change depending on match-ups.

Flash - League of Legends
Ignite - League of Legends


LeBlanc plays like an AP assassin, diving in and dealing incredible amounts of burst damage - while being incredibly squishy. Howeverm, she does have excellent escape capabilities. 

  • Level 1 - Take W - Distortion, for strong early game poke and burst damage on minions.
  • Level 2 - Take Q - Sigil of Malice, for enhanced poke and detonation damage.
  • First Back - Work towards your Luden's Tempest with a Lost Chapter, which gives mana sustain too. 

Tips & Tricks

  • LeBlanc's bread-and-butter combo is W > Q + R > E > W, which allows you to dive in, burst down, and get out again. Practice this often! 
  • If you don't have enough damage for an assassination, use E + R to immobilize your target for a teammate to take down.
  • Remember, you can control your clone using Alt + Right Click. Use this to trick enemies.
  • Sigil of Malice has a low cooldown, so use it often to clear minion waves alongside the W+R combo.
  • Your Ethereal Chains will continue even when in stasis, such as under the effects of Zhonya's Hourglass.
