As League of Legends: Wild Rift launches in ever more regions and with plenty of hands-on time already with the game's Legends and mechanics, we thought it no better time to start putting together build guides to give you a good idea of what you should be doing when you head into Summoner's Rift for the first time in Riot's new mobile MOBA.

This time around, we bring you the guide for one of the newest and most picked champions in the game - Camille, the Steel Shadow.

Camille: Her active and passive skills

Her passive ability, Adaptive Defenses, grants her an adaptive damage shield equal to 20% of her maximum life, each time she manages to hit her enemies with basic attacks.

Let's move on to her active skills:

  • Precision Protocol: When activated, Camille's next basic attack will make bonus damage, in addition to giving her bonus movement speed. If you activate it again and manage to hit another basic attack, it will do even more damage than the previous one.
  • Tactical Sweep: Launches an attack in a conical area, dealing bonus damage and slowing enemies hit in the outer half, as well as slightly healing Camille.
  • Hookshot: Allows Camille to propel herself towards any wall, landing she will launch enemies on her way into the air.
  • Ultimate - The Hextech Ultimatum: Camille will dash towards any enemy, knocking the other opponents out of a hexagonal area, which the target enemy will not be able to get out of.

Recommended Runes and Spells for Camille

Camille is well known for being a very versatile duelist, thanks to her hybrid defence nature. This allows her to excel in battle, and together with her divided drives, makes her one of the allies with the best offence for any team. These are her recommended runes:

  • Conqueror: Deals more bonus damage each time you deal damage. One of the best options, thanks to Camille's skills and great attack speed.
  • Brutal: Provides bonus attack damage and armour penetration.
  • Backbone: Grants additional armour or magic resistance, depending on the current defensive composition.
  • Sweet Tooth: Gives bonus gold and increased health regeneration when eating Honeyfruit.

As an alternative option to Sweet Tooth, we recommend the Mastermind rune, which will allow you to do additional damage to epic monsters and turrets, essential for pushing lines or in case of going Jungle.

Camille can be one of the more balanced options for the top lane, given her good offensive abilities and defensive characteristics, so we can recommend these spells for any situation:

  • Flash: When available, it allows you to make risky moves with your Hookshot, and escape the battle in case of ambushes or siege by multiple enemies.
  • Ignition: Use it as a tool to finish off enemies in case they want to escape with low life.
    It isn’t necessary to remind you that if you want to focus on using Camille as a Jungler, you must carry Smite with you. We recommend wearing it as the Red Challenging Smite.

The best items for Camille

The item composition of the Steel Shadow should be focused on her hybrid nature, balancing her offensive and defensive stats, making her a threat capable of surviving enemy exchanges. For this, these are the best item options:

  • Trinity Force: Thanks to its passive Spellblade, it allows her to do greater explosive damage, in addition to benefiting from the attack speed bonus it grants.
  • Gluttonous Greaves: Grants her omivampirism, giving you a better chance of surviving in fights. We recommend wearing them with Glorious Enchantment for their aggressive combat style, or Teleportation for split pushing.
  • Sterak's Gage: Increases Camille's attack damage and health, as well as granting her a shield when her health drops below a certain percentage.
  • Death's Dance: Grants extra life, damage, physical vampirism, and its Cauterize passive converts a portion of the damage taken into delayed damage, giving you more room to fight multiple champions.
  • Guardian Angel: While it's hard to exterminate Camille already, this item can make her simply immortal, as well as giving her more room for mistakes in the late game.

In addition to these, we recommend using either Spirit Visage or Dead Man’s Plate, depending on the enemy team's situation, and Mortal Reminder or Blade of the Ruined King, for a completely aggressive composition.

Tips for Camille’s play style

In the lane phase, it’s essential to exchange attacks with the enemy when Flexible Defenses are available, in order to make the most of the approach, using both Precision Protocol attacks, and Tactical Sweep to reposition yourself and steal a little of the enemy's life.

Camille's ability to chase enemies in combat is extremely strong, giving her great mobility and many ways to eliminate them even if she has low health.

For these cases, it’s better to take advantage of an enemy separation or distraction with the help of your allies, and thus attack anyone using the Hextech Ultimatum, avoiding the enemies that try to protect your target.

You must try to use the Hookshot and wall jump reasonably, since a bad entry can leave you in the middle of all the enemies, giving them the gold and the kill, for which you must be aware of the position of the enemies and their possible rotations or movements.

Finally, it must be recognized that Camille's true strength lies in her great mobility, which allows her both to enter favourable situations and to get out of risky situations, making her movements as surprising as they are indecipherable.

Camille has been one of the strongest champions since her arrival, something that has been seen in multiple regional and international competitions, being the selection par excellence for the top lane at the moment, something that we are sure will also be the case at launch. by Wild Rift.
