Currently, all of the Supports on our list are good in Solo Queue, and you’ll find huge success if you start playing them. Like some of our other guides, these Supports can be good at all stages of the game, but they succeed more and more as the game goes along.

Best Late Game Supports in League of Legends

  1. Sona
  2. Senna
  3. Thresh
  4. Soraka
  5. Lulu


We talk about some of these champions in-depth, and you can also find other strong late-game champions in this video!

1. Sona

The first champion on todays list is Sona. Sona is one of those champions who isn’t seen alot, but her presence is still very high when she is played.

Sona has always been an excellent scaling champion, but she was made to be an even stronger late game champion after her rework. The additional cooldown she gets is very useful at getting picks and saving her allies.

Her Ultimate in the late game is incredibly potent and can be used to get picks on enemies who are too overextended or who are alone. Sona is fantastic in team fights, and teams are usually grouped in the later parts of the game, so she shines.


Tips and Tricks:

  • Use your Passive to the fullest by always auto-attacking after a trade.
  • Set up picks with your R around objectives like the Baron or Dragon. Hiding in an unwarded bush and ambushing the enemy is a great tactic for Sona.
  • Watch your positioning at all times. Stand next to your ADC at all times, so you do not get picked off before or at the start of a team fight.

2. Senna

Senna is one of the strongest late game Supports in the game! This is because of her Passive which increases her stats and chase down potnetial.

Senna will always buy items that give her AD and a plethora of other stats. These additional stats make her strong, but she needs to ensure that she gets the stacks in the first place. She can team up with her Jungler in the later parts of the early and mid-game to get tons of additional stacks from the jungle camps.

The thing about Senna is that even when she is behind, as long as she has stacks, she can be truly obnoxious. The longer the game goes, the stronger she will be too, as her drops are truly limitless, so she can get as many as humanly possible.


Tips and Tricks:

  • Do not use your Ultimate mid-combo. It takes some time to charge up, and you’ll be exposed to enemy CC and damage. You will also miss out on an auto-attack or two- which may make all the difference in a fight.
  • Do not use your E unless you’re being ganked. It’s not a good ability to use mid-combo, and it costs a lot of mana and doesn’t help when fighting.
  • At level 1, try to be as aggressive as possible and get as much damage down on the enemy laners as possible.

3. Thresh

What list would be complete without adding Thresh? Thresh is one of the best Supports around, but what makes him a late game champion, especially when his early game is also pretty good?

The thing that genuinely makes Thresh good in the late game is his Q and W, but his E is also pretty good too. Thresh’s pick potential is uncontested in the later parts of the game. If he lands a good Q on someone and catches them out of position, his team can quickly snowball that pick into a much larger lead, such as winning a team fight, an objective or neutral objective.

Thresh isn’t the easiest champion to play, though, so while his late game is strong, his strength is defined by how good the player is. He has so much to offer in the late game, but you need to be landing those hooks, throwing out good lanterns and getting those picks.


Tips and Tricks:

  • Thresh has very good roaming potential once he has Boots of Mobility. Look to roam often once you’ve purchased these Boots to get a lead.
  • Bait out dashes or abilities that can be used to dodge your Q to make landing abilities much easier.
  • Place vision around objectives to try and get picks before sieging or taking an objective. One good Death Sentence on a target can turn the game around.

4. Soraka

Soraka can be a late game monster, especially when she is full build and if the enemy hasn’t brought any items to counter her.

Her healing in the late game is pretty strong, as the more items she buys that enhance her healing, the more she will heal (duh). She will also buy items that will increase her health pool, which means she can use her heals even more often in the late game.

However, her healing can be reduced if the enemy gets items that inflict grievous wounds, such as Executioner’s Calling. This item will impact how good her heals are, but she will still heal her allies for a lot in the late game.


Tips and Tricks:

  • Stay in the backline at all times. Do not walk too far forward, as you will be a target for incoming damage. Standing as far back as possible will allow you to survive for as long as possible in the lane and in team fights.
  • Once you’ve landed your Q on the enemy, use your W on your ADC to heal them. This will not cost you the usual health cost.
  • Keep a constant eye on the minimap and be prepared to use your Ultimate to save your allies. Do not use it if they’re going to die anyway. Only use it if they have a chance of escaping/ turning the fight around.

5. Lulu

Lulu is the final champion on our list, and she is one of the most popular Supports around. It’s easy to see why she is a great late game champion, but let’s point out a few.

Her utility is one of the best in the game. She can provide so much utility for her team that it can be near impossible to deal with. If you try to jump on her or her carry, she can just use her W and prevent you from killing them. Alternatively, she can use her W to save her allies and speed them up so they can escape.

Lulu’s Ultimate is powerful too. She can use it to enhance her carries while also offering them a ton of protection. Lulu’s Ultimate can even be used as a counter engage tool: knocking up targets so they cannot lock down her carries.


Tips and Tricks:

  • When harassing at levels 1 and 2, self-cast your E if the enemy is trading back with you. If they cannot trade back with you, cast your E on them.
  • Always stand near your ADC as the game goes along. Do not stray too far away from them, as they’ll need you to protect them.
  • You can use your Ultimate to stop the enemy from engaging on to you or your ADC. Right as the enemy gets on top of you, cast your Ultimate to knock them up and escape. Timing it correctly will prevent damage and also prevent CC.
