If you have any questions about our choices or process, ask us on Discord!

Now that you know the best champions for LoL, get the best champions for Teamfight Tactics with our TFT tier list or Wild Rift with our Wild Rift tier list.

We also have a best decks tier list for LoR and an agent tier list for Valorant.

Methodology TLDR:

  • Our first tier list aimed at lower ELO, specifically Bronze up to high Plat/low Diamond. Our second tier list is for high ELO, aimed at Diamond 2 and above.
  • Our experts curate these picks and are an indicator of the champion’s inherent strength when played at the highest level. For many of the user base, this information isn’t super relevant for their games but provides invaluable insight into the game itself.

Let’s say you’re debating between learning and climbing with Jax (A-tier | Simple) or Rengar (A-tier | Severe) – you’re going to want to go with Jax. Why? This is because Jax has a lower skill floor and would require less games to play at an A-Tier level in solo Queue. If you tried to pick up Rengar, you wouldn’t get the full value of A-tier until after about 15 matches of practice whereas with Jax, you would get that full 15 every time you play him.

Expert pick commentary

To see all the explanations for our expert picks and more, head to our tier list feature!

LoL Tier List feature example

Top – Quinn

  • She’s all about bullying and abusing low range laners and just snowballing with her oppressive playstyle.
  • Once she gets ahead she can roam to her hearts content and carry the rest of the map, too, thanks to her crazy map mobility!
  • She may be a little bit of a different kind of pick you’d usually see in the top lane, but her numbers really don’t lie.

Jungle – Nocturne

  • Nocturne has been underrated for most of this season so far, but recently his win rate has shot up even higher with the buffs to Stridebreaker.
  • He has always been a great pick in low elo, able to destroy the map with his long range ultimate ganks and insane snowball potential, but now he’s proving that little bit more consistent, which is why we’ve moved him up to the S tier!

Mid – Vex

  • Vex’s buffs recently saw a real boost in her success rate and that’s why she’s risen up to the S tier!
  • Vex has solid poke in lane and can bully and control the mid lane pretty seamlessly, but then she has that ability to roam and snowball the map with her ultimate allowing her to reset her way to an easy victory!
  • She is very easy to play and super rewarding in the right games, so give her a go!

Bottom – Ashe

  • Ashe remains untouched this patch, making her a top choice for the bot lane.
  • She can dominate lanes with her volleys and auto attacks, and her slows and ultimate allow for easy setup of fights.
  • Ashe delivers insane damage in the later stages of the game and becomes challenging to escape from if she gets ahead due to her relentless slows.
  • Even when behind, she provides utility with her Arrow and hawk shots, ensuring she remains useful throughout the game.

Support – Blitzcrank

  • Blitzcrank’s got some interesting changes this patch which we think will see him rise back among the top tier supports to play.
  • He can dominate 2v2s or just roam and carry the rest of the map instead, which is perfect for how unpredictable solo queue always proves to be!

Top – Riven

  • Riven has been a great meta pick in the top lane at higher ranks all season so far and this isn’t going to change this patch.
  • The fighter itemization changes may suit her this patch too, with buffs to alternative items like Goredrinker opening up more avenues for her to go for.
  • If you can pull of those combos and mechanics on Riven, there’s very few better options to carry with!

Jungle – Nidalee

  • Nidalee is still one of the best junglers in high elo, where jungle tempo and aggressive snowballing playstyles are the key to ranking up and seeing that jungle diff come up in all chat throughout any game.
  • She takes a LOT of practice to play at a high level, from perfecting that first clear, to invading and securing early kills to get ahead

Mid – Orianna

  • Orianna has finally risen back into the top tiers after a string of buffs sees her prove how strong she can be.
  • Orianna has solid wave control, great utility, amazing scaling and the ability to win teamfights with just one good ultimate.
  • She fits into any team comp, works well in most drafts and can always be more than impactful as long as she doesn’t fall too far behind early game!

Bottom – Vayne

  • Vayne is well and truly back after creeping back up those tiers in recent weeks and those high ELO ADC mains are really showing just how scary she can be.
  • Waveclear and laning has always been Vayne’s biggest weakness, but with Statikk Shiv this is pretty much fixed instantly when you buy it.
  • The power spikes and her item versatility make her a great pick to play in the right hands, so give her a go!

Support – Pyke

  • Pyke has always been that super scary support pick in the right hands and in high elo right now he’s even more terrifying than ever.
  • He’s got early aggression and kill threat, he’s got incredible roaming potential and he can snowball the map so hard with so much damage, CC and mobility.
  • Pyke takes a lot of practice to play perfectly, but when you get it right, there’s not many better.

Disclaimer #1: If a champion isn’t on our LoL Tier List, it doesn’t necessarily mean that you can’t climb with them. You’ll just have to put in more effort to get similar results as our Optimal, Great, and Good choices for climbing.
Disclaimer #2: This list is meant to evaluate the champions that we believe are best for climbing Solo Queue. Although there can certainly be some overlap, we are NOT looking to name the champions that are the best in pro-play or organized, competitive 5-on-5. This is why champs that require a ton of team coordination such as Ryze, may not be included or ranked highly.

As always, we welcome all discussion and feedback.
