Introduction

Camille is a highly damaging, physical damage robot assassin-fighter champion. She's mobile and brings a fair amount of crowd control in the form of knock ups, slows and the ability to anchor enemies to an area with her ultimate. Even with all of these features, she is still more or less another mobile assassin champion, and thus, shares many of their weaknesses. Weaknesses we'll learn to exploit today.

Our Top Counter Tips For Camille

Camille's shield only works on one of the two damage types. Hit her when she is vulnerable to yours.

Camille's abilities are somewhat hard on the mana pool. Do yourself the favor of being patient against an aggressive Camille and punish her lack of mana.

Her Ultimate has a short range, stay further away from her, so that she can't use it on you.

His damage isn't prevented by being anchored to an area, if she tries to take advantage of the extra damage he takes from her autos, she has to stand in his Judgment, and in his ult range. He can also stave off the extra damage with his W.

Illaoi Counter Tips

Illaoi

If she jumps on Illaoi, Illaoi is going to hurt her very badly. Pulling her soul out, then ulting, and then continually slamming her with tentacles.
