Best Lillia Build Guide | Runes | Spells | Items in League of Legends

Lillia jungle is one of the best league of legends champions to initiate a team fight in league of legends. She can deal magic damage in a small area and put all enemies marked by her abilities to sleep. Other champions don't have that luxury to easily inflict hard CC on enemies with such ease.

Best Lillia Build

Lillia’s kit revolves around her ability to kite enemies while dealing both damage over time and burst magic damage. As of patch 12.14 released by riot games, she is sitting comfortably at a win rate of 51.4%. Discover how you can easily carry a teamfight with the best lillia build guides here at the global gaming.


Best Lillia Runes

When you play Lillia in the jungle, ganking should be your priority and the best rune combo you can get for this is Celerity with Waterwalking in the Sorcery runes set. Cheap shot and eyeball collection are also two great offensive Lillia runes that are great for early and late game stacking along with treasure hunter.

Finally, Dark harvest finishes this best lillia runes guide. It synergizes so well with Lillia as she can inflict damage over time with her dream laden bough that applies dream dust whenever she hits an enemy with her Q blooming blows or other spells.

Best Lillia Rune Shards

For rune shards, you’re gonna want to improve your first jungle clear speed. For this you need a point on attack speed on offense, +9 adaptive force on flex, and +6 armor on defense to mitigate those jungle monster damage.

+10% Attack Speed

Best Lillia Spells

Summoner spells are important when you are a jungler especially in the picks and bans phase. Sometimes players tend to forget to change their summoner spells to smite and that could be a huge problem when the battle starts.


As a jungler, smite is crucial as this is the one who will give you more exp when slaying jungle monsters. Flash also works well on this Lillia build as you can surprise your opponents with a flash Blooming blows + R.


Best Lillia Abilities Order

Liliia’s skill order is quite simple, the one that deals the most damage and has the lowest cooldown should be maxed first. For that, you should max your Q blooming blows first. Followed by her W and finally her E. Her E stays at one level simply because it is a hard skill to land and has a longer cooldown than the other two.


This skill order in this lillia build is focused more on jungle clear camps. You need to clear camps fast because Lillia is gank abusive. Once you reach level 3, then Lillia can abuse her ganking potential.

Best Lillia Items

Lillia Jungle is an excellent team fight champion and that is why her main focus should be damage over time items that can deal with tanks and synergize with Dark harvest. Anti heal and slow effect items are also great additions to Lillia’s kit, especially during the late game. It is also worth knowing when to use stealth ward or Oracle’s lens.

Best Starter Lillia Items

To start the game, you will need a hailblade so that your smite will be upgraded to a chilling smite. Chilling smite is important to this lillia guide because you’re gonna need all the bonus movement speed you can get. The stealth ward for your default trinket is also recommended for a starter before switching to oracle lens.

Best Mid Game Lillia Items

Mythic items are probably the ones you should rush in any role or champion you play because of the huge power spike it provides. Liandry’s anguish along with Demonic embrace are both mid game items that you should rush. This item combo gives you so much jungle clear speed and one gank alone gives you so much value because of the damage over time you can deal that synergizes with your dream laden bough pbuttive.

Liandry’s Anguis

Sorcerer’s Shoes

Demonic Embrace

These three items alone can handle any 1v1 Lillia faces. She can inflict tons of damage over time with this item combo and enemies won’t even get near her because of all her bonus movement speed provided by the best runes you set for her. If enemies manage to close the gap between the two of you, you can simply cast Lilting lullaby to make them sleep.


Best Final Late Game Lillia Items 

The best items for Lillia in league of legends are the ones that synergize with her pbuttive. Persisting effects like the damage over time of your two core items and Rylai’s Crystal scepter slow last longer on enemies thanks to Lillia’s pbuttive. You can build a full offensive item set but if there is an buttbuttin present in the opposing enemy’s composition, Zhonya’s hourglbutt is a great item on Lillia.

Demonic Embrace

Best Champions to pair Lillia with

Lillia is a great initiator in league of legends so it only makes sense that top lane or mid lane allies that need enemies to be stunned or movement impaired are the best synergies for Lillia. Aatrox and Viktor can easily capitalize on Lillia’s lilting lullaby by chaining another CC ability.


Zed also synergizes with Lillia in the mid lane as Lillia’s initiate can improve Zed’s one shot burst.

Strongest Champions against Lillia

Lillia is a champion that kites her opponents while dealing damage over time to them. She is a squishy champion and anyone who can outrun her or disable her for a long time is a great counter to her. Hecarim is known as one of the fastest champion in league of legends which only makes him a natural counter to Lillia.


Weakest Champions against Jinx

Champions with limited range and slow tempo are easily countered by Lillia, she can clear camps and gank faster than Fiddle sticks along with Rek’Sai and Kha’Zix. Her kiting easily counters the champions mentioned. But be careful, because when these champion reaches late game, there is little to nothing you can do about their damage.


Lillia is part of the new champion generation whom most players don’t really know how to play, that is why build guides for league of legends like this one is really helpful. Everything mentioned in this guide, from the skill order to the champion counters are made during patch 12.14.
