How to Counter Leblanc?

Countering Leblanc is all about picking a counter champion that can stop her from snowballing. Some champions are excellent counter-picks to all assassins, and will work well against Leblanc. She's extremely tricky, so champions that rely on slow skill shots will have difficulty hitting her, but she's also very squishy and AOE based champions will render her passive useless.

Check out our top Leblanc counters below for more information on how to beat her!

How to Counter Leblanc?

Countering Leblanc is all about picking a counter champion that can stop her from snowballing. Some champions are excellent counter-picks to all assassins, and will work well against Leblanc. She's extremely tricky, so champions that rely on slow skill shots will have difficulty hitting her, but she's also very squishy and AOE based champions will render her passive useless.

Leblanc Overview

Strengths:
  • Long-range initiation
  • High mobility
  • Powerful 1v1 crowd-control
  • Defensive passive
  • Powerful 100 to 0 burst damage
  • Good roam potential
  • Good base damage
Weaknesses:
  • Low early wave clear
  • Main damage spell [W] can be blocked by knock-ups
  • Telegraphed delayed crowd control
  • Relatively high early game cooldowns

Countering Leblanc

Based on the weaknesses and strengths list above, countering Leblanc largely comprises of champions that can accomplish the following:
  • Shove Leblanc into turret early
  • Block Leblanc's Distortion [W] using a knock-up
  • Survive Leblanc's burst damage
  • Outburst Leblanc
  • Deal AOE (preferably crowd-control)
If you don't have any of these, then the following strategies work well too:
  • Stay grouped and behind minions
  • Save movement spelll for when she begins her Distortion animation
  • Avoid fighting her early game until picking up a few items

    Leblanc Counter Champions

    The following champions counter Leblanc and can be used to absolutely dominate her in almost every regard. Although a good Leblanc can still win with some jungle assistance or roam, generally speaking her strategy will suffer against these champion counters.

    1. Malzahar - Malzahar's passive automatically blocks one of Leblanc's spells. As a champion that relies heavily on combos, this is extremely rough. Pre-6 Malzahar will still want to play safely, but post-6 he absolutely destroys any attempt Leblanc makes to hurt him. His waveclear is also much better than Leblanc's, which allows him to shove her to lane without worry.
    2. Morgana - Similar to Malzahar, Morgana's able to push in her lane with little counterplay. Meanwhile, her black shield means that Leblanc will never be able to crowd-control her. Lastly, Morgana's ultimate is able to go straight through Leblanc's passive while drawing a line to exactly where she's standing.
    3. Xerath - Like Malzahar, Xerath needs to be careful early game. However, later on he's perfect for countering Leblanc. His stun moves in a straight line and will hit Leblanc every time she starts her distortion, opening her up to massive AOE damage. Xerath's poke is also considerably higher ranged than Leblanc, which means he can drop her down before she even has a chance to fight back.
