How to Play Layla

Mastering Layla requires a strategic approach. Here are some tips to maximize your impact on the battlefield:

  • Due to her scaling, Layla excels in the late game and is fairly strong early on. Be proactive in teamfights and assisting teammates.

  • Despite Layla’s lack of mobility, she can be safe when used correctly. Utilize her wide range to stay safe and position yourself effectively.


Early Game (Level 1-7): Focus on getting the gold bonus from minions and avoid unnecessary enemy engagements to prevent ganks.

Mid Game (Level 8-12): Play stealthily and seek protection from tanks or fighters.

Late Game (Level 13+): Stick with your tank during team fights to ensure safety and contribute to kills. Support for more items and experience.
