“My tips for this matchup:
#1 Start Doran's Blade and run PTA since you want to be very agressive early levels (1-3),.
#3 Stand behind your minions to make it hard for her to land E's on you, if you're out in the open make sure you're constantly moving and trying to sidestep her E, if she misses E then try to go all in to punish her illaoi relives heavily on hitting her E to do anything.
#4 Build executioners calling usually after first item, before is fine too if it fits your gold better. #5 Try to force her into teamfights, Illaoi thrives at splitpushing but urgot thrives at teamfighting.
#6 If you know she is going to use her ultimate then try to play right outside the range of it so she doesn't get an extra tentacle on you, this can be especially important if your jungler is ganking for you and you know she is going to ultimate, her ultimate range is about the same as your auto attack range so you can simply step back a little bit to bait it out. #7 You can kill her tentacles with your W very quickly, this is especially useful to know once you're level 9 and have your W maxxed, it is important to note that auto attacking the tentacles and using your W will use your passive proc in that direction, which isn't a big deal later on but can be something to keep in mind early game.”
“Dodge her E, win the lane. That's all there is to it. If she misses her E you can hard trade, if she hits it you lose. Riven has the mobility to deal with this matchup and also outscales. Try not to let her 1 shot the wave with Q or you're just going to be farming under tower dodging her E for the next 10 minutes.”
“Early game dont worry about her E as it doesnt do a ton of damage pre 6. If you get hit by it, dont run away, fight her. Dodge her Qs and tentacle attacks with Q and walking. Pre 6 since her E is useless you can riposte any Q or W dmg, whichever is higher. After 6 be carefuly of her all in dmg. Try to bait out her ult and then disengage and rengage when her ult is down. She will be strong later in team fights due to her ult. Just play around it.”
“Avoid her E and run away from her R.
Attempt to hit when E misses.
Destroy her tentacles on the map.
Avoid team fights with her.
Don't get pushed under the tower.”
“Level 1 you win with your passive stacked, after level 2 you need to fight her ONLY if you dodge her E, if you go on her and she has her E you are doomed, thats all, also you can bait her R and then q away”
“Can be pretty hard to face at times. Make sure to dodge her E or if she hits it to run away from the range. Also just back off if she activates her R as she heals a ton from it if she gets to deal damage with it. She has no escapes though so if your jungler comes just CC her and avoid her R and you should get a kill unless she is really ahead.”
“You need to try to kill her pre 6 and you need to learn to dodge her tentacles. If you can't do those, then you will really struggle after 6. The key is dodging. ”
“You need to dodge her E in this match up. If you jump on her make insta side step cuz most of Illaois do insta E and if she misses her E you can try to kill her then. If she ults and you will know that you won't be able to finish her with her heals just jump away, wait for end of her R and then try to go in. Get Executioner's Calling to reduce Illaoi heals. ”
“Illaoi's biggest weakness is ranged champions, so keep this in mind.
I believe that it is ESSENTIAL to run fleet into this matchup for sustain and MS to help juke Illaio's E and Qs.
I vs Dirtymobs (best illaio world) often, and so far I have beaten him every single time to the point where he fears the Quinn matchup.
The only time I lost against him was when I accidently ran PTA and also mr runes because I thought I was vsing their AP midlaner top instead of illaoi top.
From that experience, I've learned to value fleet for sustain in lane over PTA to allow you to control the lane.
First, DODGE HER Qs. Her Q range is 825 and will go through minions, which is much longer than our auto attack range.
However, it's quite easy to dodge when you get the hand of it because her Q animtion is delayed a bit.
In lane I like to pay close attention to illaoi, and usually she wants to Q low health minions, so anticipate this and try not to stand directly in a line away from her to make it harder for her to Q you.
If Illaoi Es you, don't fight her and just run away out of the range. When you are vesseled, just dodge one hit and stay near that tentacle.
Each tentacle only hits once and if you don't run around or kill it, no second one will spawn.
After the duration, you can still kill it. Now, this is how you win the illaoi matchup.
Make sure to stand behind minions because her E does not go through minions, but more importantly, if Illaoi misses her E, INSTANTLY use your entire combo on her including your vault.
Illaoi legit gets countered by ranged champions (Dirty Mobs agreed with this as well), and I see so many Quinn players make this mistake.
When Illaoi E is down she is useless against Quinn, so pressure her and punish her if she misses her E.
I like to bait out illaoi E by walking towards illaoi away from minions, and instantly stepping sideways or back because Illaoi thinks I'm walking towards her, but I'm really just trying to bait out her E.
When her E is down, I then combo her and get a big trade win.
Now, post 6 is more scary, but if you blind illaoi during her ult, then you mitiate so so much damage because she is unable to see to land her Qs and abilities on you/your teammates.
I go stormrazor rush because slowing illaoi is huge to help you out run her all-in, or punish her harder for missing Es.
Very easy matchup, just dodge Qs in lane and especially her Es! Legit the only way Illaoi wins early lane is by landing multiple Es on you.
If illaoi doesn't land E on you, then her R isn't scary at all!”
“You win levels 1-5. You can take HOB if you really want to try to kill her. At 6 she becomes a major threat. Save your ult for when she ults and lands. The tentacles always spawn behind you so ult her away from them and fight.”
