League of Legends spotlight: Summon the Kraken Priestess Illaoi

illaoi-reveal-banner

League has finally unleashed the Kraken, well so to speak at least. This time it’s in the form of a champion named ILLAOI (ILL-LAO-E), the Kraken Priestess, and as you might have guessed it she relies heavily on the use of tentacles, so watch out. Illaoi is designed to be a solo lane physical fighter who has great harass and when used properly will increase her sustainability while in lane to help her out sustain her opponent. She excels in tight corridors such as the jungle and both dragon and baron camps.

Her full kit is as follows:

Passive: Prophet of An Elder God

Illaoi will periodically spawn a tentacle on a nearby wall including destroyed turrets. These tentacles interact with each of Illaoi’s abilities and last until killed or left dormant a full minute.

Q: Tentacle Smash

Passive: Tentacles that strike enemy champions heal Illaoi for a small amount of her missing health.

Active: Illaoi summons a tentacle that slams down in a target direction, damaging all enemies hit.

W: Harsh Lesson

Illaoi charges in for the next basic attack, dealing bonus physical damage before commanding all nearby tentacles to swing at her target.

E: Test of Spirit

Illaoi casts a skill shot that shoots out a tendril to rip a spirit out of the first enemy champion hit and pull it beside her. A portion of the damage dealt to this spirit transfers to its owner. If the spirit is killed, its owner becomes a Vessel that will spawn tentacles that will occasionally swing at the vessel and its allies dealing physical damage to anything caught in its wake.

R: Leap of Faith

Illaoi jumps up and slams the ground with her idol, damaging all enemies within reach and summons a tentacle for every opposing champion hit. Illaoi ‘s W: skill Harsh Lesson also gains a significantly reduced cooldown while her ultimate is active.

Check out her Spotlight below and may fortune be ever in your favor, my fellow Summoners!
