I doubt it would be good against normal top picks... but any top lane can go mid and any mid can go top since they are solo lanes and are solo for a reason; you need quicker levels for spell base damage. I'm not sure how well it would work but I guess it would work against some squishy top picks like teemo perhaps?

Funny you mentioned this. I saw it this morning. Leblanc vs Irelia ranked match. LB went double GP5 (HoG, Philo). Sunfire Cape, Frozen Heart, and Merc treads. Actually did amazing that game.

The bruisers just grab a Hexdrinker or Negatron and laugh at you. You also give up her roaming power by being top lane. One of the strengths of Leblanc is her mobility to go with her burst, making her depend on roaming kills outside of her lane. Mid gives her the best point to branch from to accomplish this.

It would be very bad vs Irelia/Jax/Riven, because I've tried it - their kits go too well with either autopushing to oblivion, rushing hexdrinker and straight resists, or freezing the lane at the tower and straight denying you. Their kits usually also come with even more resists and/or sustain, which are just the bane to LB.

Do you know how irritating it is as LB to burst irelia to 20% hp, then have her ult and auto attack a few times and be full again while you're sitting OOM and crying?

If an Irelia with 120 mr wants to deny you, then you aren't getting a single cs for the next 15 minutes.

That's actually pretty terrible logic.

Giving the popular top lane champs a good reason to rush early magic resist and push their farm as hard as they can.... no i don't see leblanc being a good choice.

I've been forced into it before (playing blind pick, ended up in a mirror match. Rather than dealing with that, switched).

It's meh. Like everyone else says, you need kills on leblanc. I was against an irelia that I managed to get a kill early on with, then snowballed the lane from there.

That is the only reason I can see her going top. Is because of the snowball effect she can have on her lane, and everyone knows how hard top lane snowballs.
