Best Camille Build

At first, Camille might look like she is easy to use because she relies on her auto attack to get the most out of her kit. However, many pro players will say that she is also one of the champions that require insane mechanics and decision-making. There was a time when a healing Camille jungle was one of the strongest champions, but this guide focuses on the top lane. Follow all the tips below to be one step ahead on mastering Camille's abilities, items, skill order, and many more!

Best Camille Runes

This rune set will make Camille a menace during the laning phase by exerting pressure on enemy champions. Here are the recommended rune setup every time you play Camille

Like most top lane champions, Camille heavily relies on the resolve rune tree. You will get the most out of her kit when you go for resolve because it has the grasp of the undying, which gives an insane amount of health, sustain, and bonus auto attack damage. The other runes also provide survivability throughout the game.

Best Rune Path Resolve
Inspiration
Best Keystone Grasp of the Undying
Best Slot 1 (Rune) Shield Bash
Magical Footwear
Best Slot 2 (Rune) Bone Plating
Biscuit Delivery
Best Slot 3 (Rune) Unflinching

On the other hand, using the inspiration tree as your secondary rune page is the best choice. Magical footwear will help you from mid to late game because of the free boots, while biscuit delivery is excellent for sustain during the laning phase.

Best Camille Rune Shards

Like most bruiser top lane champions, Camille runs basic rune shards. First, as a champion that relies on bonus attack speed, it is best to choose offense for that sole reason. The next shards are really situational, and you should change them every game depending on your match-up on the top lane. It is best to get the defense shards to mitigate the bonus damage dealt by any enemy.

Best Camille Spells

The top lane is the most isolated lane in League of Legends, which is why every top player should run teleport 99% of the time.

Flash LoL Summoner Spell: Flash
Teleport

As your second summoner spell, it is recommended to get flash because it provides a ton of value for any champion and is flexible in any situation. Not only that, but Camille can also combo flash with her abilities, namely tactical sweep and hookshot.

Best Camille Ability Order

Camille is a strong early game champion, and following this ability order will make her even stronger. The first ability that you should prioritize is precision protocol because it will bring the most out of your damage potential.

The next ability you should focus on leveling up is Hookshot to lessen its cooldown, opening more chances for frequent outplays and crowd control. Hookshot is powerful during all stages of the game, so make sure to level it up after you maximize precision protocol.

Best Camille Items

Camille is a solid mid and late-game champion, which also means she heavily relies on abilities to deal great damage. She is also a very mobile champion that makes your enemies rage. Here is the correct itemization for Camille to carry all of your teammates in League of Legends!

Best Starter Camille Items

Since Camille is an attack damage top laner, it is best to build a Doran's blade as her first item. This will help with sustain (because of the bonus health and omnivamp) and trading potential (attack damage). 

First Item Second Item Third Item
Doran’s Blade
Long Sword
Health Potion

Make sure to also buy a health potion just in case you lose a chunk of your health.

Best Mid Game Camille Items

This is a vital part of Camille's itemization because this will decide whether you can survive until the late game. Also, the mid-game is where you can maximize your damage potential against enemies. You can also counter your enemies by building the correct items.

First Item Second Item Third Item Fourth Item
Divine Sunderer
Plated Steelcaps
Refillable Potion
Control Ward

Always complete divine sunderer as your first item to get the most out of Camille's abilities. It is also great that you have completed plated steelcaps during the mid-game to have a little bit of tankiness.

Best Late Game Camille Items

This is the point where you have to showcase your excellent positioning and your ability the know what the correct itemization should be. All that you do during the late game is crucial, because this is where the outcome of the match will be decided.

First Item Second Item Third Item Fourth Item Fifth Item
Ravenous Hydra
Death’s Dance
Maw of Malmortius
Guardian Angel
Sterak’s Gage

All the items above will maximize Camille's tankiness and damage-dealing potential.

Best Champions To Pair With Camille

Thankfully, Riot Games create different champions, and there are multiple ones that are great paired with Camille. First is Warwick due to his strong crowd control abilities and chasing potential, making him able to either give info for Camille or finish off champions. The next champion is Trundle, for the same reason as Warwick.

Champion Win Rate % Icon
Warwick 59.6%
Trundle 55.9%
Fiddlesticks 56.53%

Lastly is Fiddlesticks because of his strong ultimate that will ruin the enemy positioning and deal damage on the champion that Camille used Hextech Ultimatum on.

Strongest Champions Against Camille

Shen and Teemo are the strongest counters against Camille because they mitigate her strength, which is auto attacking.

Teemo 59.64%
Shen 58.2%
Warwick 57.58%

Also, Warwick has a strong sustain and crowd control that will prevent Camille from being mobile.

Weakest Champions Against Camille

You do not need additional attack speed or bonus magic damage to deal with these champions because they are not as mobile as Camille. 

Champion Win Rate % Icon
Tahm Kench 41.78%
Volibear 42.25%
Gwen 42.31%
