Yeah, I was wondering where the LeBlanc love was. She is hard to master though, but she can burst as well as anyone but has the stun and silence for some utility.

There is 2 different kinds of bursts in this game depending on what your looking for.

We have characters that do high amounts of damage almost instantly. Leblanc having the highest burst at level 6
These characters are meant to use all their spells in one big burst killing one person instantly (usually a character with not alot of health or a character who has alot of damage items over defensive items.) Veigar is considered an anti-mage due to his ultimate skill using Veigars ability power and his enemies ability power to maximize his damage.

Annie
Leblanc
Brand
Kassidin
Poppy (Ability power)
Veigar
Anivia
Sion (Ability Power)

Then you have characters who have more sustained burst. These characters can cause alot of damage very quickly and be able to stay in the fight long enough to do this to the other members of your team as well. Jax and Xin shao are good examples of this.

Xin Shao
Akali
Poppy (Attack Damage)
Jax
Evelynn
Ryze
Nidalee
Tryndamere
Vayne

Alot of people are saying ryze is burst they are not wrong but hes a different kind of burst. Ryze used to be all about blowing all his spells and doing huge amounts of damage very quickly similar to the instant burst champs. However Ryze is now a sustained burst caster utilizing his passive to keep his spells going consistently doing alot of damage overy a short amount of time and being able to survive if someone jumps onto him.


Poppy has 2 different ways to build her.
There is the Ability Power route which means Poppy will hit very very hard and probably instantly kill a squishy character, Poppy can also build Attack Damage and get into peoples faces and do alot of sustained damage with medium burst but being more consistent in a team fight.

Anivia is not someone i would recommend for a newer player as some of her skills can cause some bad situations for teammates if used wrong.
