Looking for a LoL tier list that’s up to date with the latest meta changes? The LoL patch 10.3 is finally here and it’s packed with plenty of bugfixes, balance tweaks, jungle buffs, and some much-needed VFX updates to some of LoL’s oldest champs. Patch 10.3 has brought a lot of changes to the current champion tier list, so you’ll want to check out our current breakdown to ensure you have the tools needed to obliterate your rivals out on the Rift. While picking a champion purely based on their strengths won’t make up for any poor plays, they will ensure your ranked climb is a little smoother.
Of course, knowing which League of Legends champions to add to your ever-growing collection can be a little tricky, especially when there are 148 to choose from. In order to help you win more ranked games, we’ve put together an in-depth guide that breaks down patch 10.3’s strongest picks and discusses why you should be using them. If you’re brand-new to LoL then you may want to seek out our picks for the best League of Legends champions for beginners.
After all, learning to play the strongest champs in the League of Legends 10.3 meta will give you the edge you need to obliterate your rivals out on the Rift. Picking a champion based on their strengths won’t make up for any poor plays, but they will ensure your ranked climb is a little smoother and you’re not losing just because your champ is a little underpowered.
Ever since G2 Esports’ Martin ‘Wunder’ Hansen dominated both Origen and Vitality with Soraka in top-lane during the LEC Spring 2020, players from around the world have begun to see just how broken she truly is. The Starchild’s kit is primarily tailored around supporting her team with life-saving heals, but the pros have started using Soraka’s excellent sustain and strong poke to out trade the game’s current top-lane bruisers.
When you combine the seemingly infinite healing from Starcall and Wish, with the disengage from Equinox, you have a recipe for an incredibly oppressive top-lane threat. Not only can Soraka win early-game 1v1’s, she can also bolster her carries’ survivability in late-game team fights. However, League senior champion designer August ‘August’ Browning has stated that a patch is on the way to nerf Soraka, so be sure to capitalise on Soraka’s strengths before Riot takes aim with their nerf gun, which is likely to happen in LoL patch 10.4.
Other s-tier picks: Mordekaiser, Sett, Renekton, Darius
The Berserker has finally managed to dethrone the Spider Queen, putting an end to her tyrannical reign. While Elise is still a strong pick, we suggest using Olaf if you wish to counter the likes of Qiyana, Lee Sin, and Elise. Olaf’s Undertow allows him to effortlessly chase down squishy damage dealers, while his Vicious Strikes make him an absolute menace in 1v1 duels.
With so many carry threats roaming around the Rift, it’s not at all surprising that this axe-wielding brute has managed to slice and dice his way to the top of the jungle tier list. While Olaf may lack decent forms of crowd control, his excellent scaling allows him to dish out tremendous amounts of damage throughout all stages of the game. If you want to stop enemy carries dead in their tracks and quickly put an end to the enemy team’s climb, then be sure to add Olaf to your roster.
Other s-tier picks: Elise, Lee Sin, Karthus, Shaco
While Fizz and Qiyana are still running rampant in mid-lane, a lot of players have turned to Diana to get the job done. Despite receiving nerfs to both her base mana and Pale Cascade damage, Diana remains the best pick for those looking to shutdown Fizz and Akali. The Scorn of the Moon delivers excellent poke with her Crescent Strike, allowing summoners to whittle down their opponent’s health, before diving in with Lunar Rush and Moonfall to finish them off. It’s certainly not hard to see why the Aspect of the Moon has been making her name for herself, so expect to see Diana a lot more throughout LoL patch 10.3.
Other s-tier picks: Qiyana, Fizz, Karthus, Talon
Senna’s unique blend of support and ADC has given this bot-lane champion the tools she needs to shine in this patch cycle. This ranged support is a truly terrifying champion who utilises her Relic Cannon to both barrage foes from afar and aid her allies with lifesaving heals. While having a support that can dish out plenty of damage is nothing new to League of Legends, the Redeemer’s poke-heavy kit has proved incredibly effective in the current meta. The 10.3 nerfs have done little to slow the Redeemer’s climb to the top of the rankings, so be prepared to either pick or ban her when queuing those all-important ranked games.
Other s-tier picks: Caitlyn, Aphelios, Miss Fortune, Ezreal
Nautilus has finally swung back into contention after Leona’s W and E received much-needed damage reductions. While the Radiant Dawn is still a top support pick for those looking to stun their opponents into submission, the nerf has led many players towards The Titan of the Depths. Nautilus’ tanky nature and excellent crowd control allow him to constantly bully carry threats, while also catching those who so much as dare to stray into his Dredge Line. Riot’s resident juggernaut excels throughout all stages of the game and is an excellent addition for those that wish to be more proactive in their plays.
Other s-tier picks: Leona, Blitzcrank, Thresh, Pyke
