I don't suggest a particular build/equipment for Layla, but I suggest useful items for her. She usually needs 1 item for boots, at least 1 item with lifesteal, at maximum 1 item to survive (please don't consider Brody with 5 defensive items at the grand-finals of M2), at least 1 item with attack speed (without considering boots), at least 1 item with critical damage. As marksman, she doesn't need items with magical damage.

How to use Layla

Laning phase combo (Malefic Bomb - Void Projectile - Basic Attacks - Destruction Rush)
In the laning phase, Layla harasses he enemy with Malefic Bomb. Then, she casts Void Projectile to deal explosive damage. Lastly, with Destruction Rush actived, Layla finishes the enemy off without breaking a sweat.

Team fight combo (Void Projectile - Malefic Bomb - Basic Attacks - Destruction Rush)
In the team fight, Layla first uses Void Projectile to deal AOE Damage. Following up with Malefic Bomb, Layla detonates the Energy Mark on enemies to further deal damage. Lastly, after a few Basic Attacks coupled with Destruction Rush, enemies are for sure wiped out.

Layla, as a marksman, must stay in the backlines because she is fragile. If your team has other marksmen, mages and supports, Layla must stay behind them too, in order to maximize her passive (remember to keep the maximum distance from enemies).


Layla must start matches in gold lane because she is a marksman and she needs items to become stronger in late game. During early game, her main priorities are to gain as much gold as possible killing minions and to destroy the 1st turret in gold lane. In this phase, it's better to avoid team fights because she is fragile and her damage isn't enough high. If possible, you can stay next to your allied turret. I recommend to remain in gold lane until that you buy some items, then you can join team fights continuing to farm until that you finish your build. Later, during late game, her main priorities are to join team fights, to kill lord, to defend allied turrets and base, and to destroy enemy turrets and base.
At level 1, I recommend to unlock Malefic Bomb because it has a longer range, while at level 2, I suggest to unlock Void Projectile. Don't forget to unlock Destruction Rush at level 4 and remember to maximize Malefic Bomb earlier than Void Projectile.
Layla's main weaknesses are low HP, low Physical Defense, low Magical Defense, low Movement Speed (common for every marksman) and enemy blinks (due to her passive). If enemies are going to gank you (please check the map), remember to use Malefic Bomb and Void Projectile.
During late game, Layla is able to attack enemy turrets and base without being hit by them and without the help of minions (however the damage becomes lower).
I use Electro-Flash as 3rd tier talent to improve her low mobility.
Her range is enough long that she can search Hanzo's true body or not to escape from Odette, Pharsa and Yve's ultimates (in these situations it's better to buy at least one between Athena's Shield, Gold Rose Meteor, Immortality and Queen's Wings), killing them, while other marksmen would escape. Furthermore, she can steal enemy buffs, turtle and lord, using Destruction Rush.
Layla mustn't buy roaming items (she is a marksman) and start matches in jungle (monsters, including buffs and except for lizard are melee, making her passive useless; therefore she mustn't use Retribution as spell and thus, she mustn't buy Machete Raptor: if your team has more marksmen, Layla must always start in gold lane). The only exceptions are in mirror mode.

Hi @Vincenza@849

Thanks for your time to wrote this guide and sharing to us, really appreciate it.
IMO when using Layla and due to the lack of mobility on her, indeed that just need to play safe until late game with her longest range unlocked at max lvl and already has full items, she would be really good during late game.

Yes, I forgot to mention that Layla becomes very powerful during late game (in fact, towards the end of matches, I obtained many more kills respect to early game).
