If you’re trying to climb up the ranks of soloq in League of Legends: Wild Rift, and you want to see what the best champions are for that, then you came to the right place. In today’s article we are going to take a look at the best champions to use in League of Legends: Wild Rift for each role, and rank them up based on how strong they are.
While there are only 49 champions currently available in the early stages of the game, Riot will release more champs in the future. So, buckle up because we’re about to take a look at the best champions for Wild Rift, for each role. But before we dive into the article, let me explain a few of their roles, in case you’re not familiar with the game (yet).
Keep in mind that some champions could fall under multiple categories – for instance, if you build Sona full AP damage, she will still be a support champion but will have a similar role to a Mage.
League of Legends: Wild Rift – Best Champions to Use in Top Lane
Most often, Bruisers are used in Top lane. However, you could take them in the Jungle too, depending on what the enemy chooses. That is not to say they cannot go as Support or Mid lane too – if you know LoL, then you know pretty much anything is possible.
A bruiser acts like a soft tank, which can basically tank to an extent but is not a dedicated tank. They excel in trading back and forth, and they cannot be burst down as fast as you would an Assassin or a Marksman.
In the top lane, I would suggest going for an easy-to-play bruiser like Garen or Tryndamere. Camille is another very strong choice, but she is slightly more difficult to pick. A very good champion to play and climb in soloq would be Jax because if he’s ahead, it will be extremely difficult to lock him down in team fights.
Some people choose to play Akali or Vayne in the top lane, but that can only be possible if you have a fairly tanky jungle or support.
League of Legends: Wild Rift – Best Champions to Use in the Jungle
A jungler needs to have clear speed and the ability to secure objectives on the map (like Dragons or Rift Scuttlers), as well as provide a little bit of vision (to avoid ganks). They can also help lanes with ganks (outnumbering the enemy), and bring certain support to the team (through crowd control).
Some amazing junglers are Master Yi, Lee Sin, and Graves, as well as Shyvana and Evelynn, in case the team needs some AP damage. In Wild Rift, just like in (PC-version) LoL, you can easily climb soloq with Master Yi, because he is a champion that deals insane damage end-game.
However, if you want to learn a good champion that can have a huge impact objective-wise and more, you should go for Lee Sin or Graves. It will take a little bit of time to master the inSec kick(with Lee Sin), but with practice, you’ll pull it off.
League of Legends: Wild Rift – Best Champions to Use in Mid Lane
Mages deal massive amounts of magic damage and are relatively squishy. They could have crowd control skills, and provide a lot of utility to the team while putting out quite a lot of damage (picture Orianna’s R). However, Mages are not the only champions you could play in mid – you could also go for an Assassin.
Assassins have crazy burst damage, and if they’re ahead, they could easily one-shot anyone. One such champion would be Zed, but it is quite difficult to pull off some good Zed plays on mobile (such as the ones from zed99) due to the fact that it’s not as easy to control the camera as it is on PC.
In my opinion, the best champions to use in mid are Ahri, Ziggs and Lux. They are fairly easy to play (especially Lux), and extremely fun if you do your full combo. Other decent options would be Twisted Fate, Orianna, Akali or Annie.
League of Legends: Wild Rift – Best Champions to Use in Bot Lane (as ADC/Marksman)
Marksmen (or ADCs) are tasked with dealing sustained damage in fights and do that from a relatively safe distance. They are specifically designed to be a reliable carry in the end game – one which can shine (mostly) once they’ve farmed enough to purchase a few items.
They are extremely squishy, and often have little or no crowd control skills. However, they make up for that with their normal attacks, which are the strongest in the game (because they itemize in items that provide high attack speed and a lot of AD).
Due to their inability to survive, they are often paired with a Support champion that can bring some heals, shields and other useful stuff to the table. In my opinion, some of the best ADCs to play in Wild Rift are Miss Fortune, Jinx and Ashe, with Jhin coming in strong too.
Varus, Kai’Sa, Draven and Ezreal are other viable options, but because of their kit and a variety of other factors, I think it might be easier to get used to playing Jinx or Ashe first.
League of Legends: Wild Rift – Best Champions to Use as Support
A good support player can really make or break a game. They are extremely important, because they can turn the tide of battle in a matter of seconds. Take Janna’s ult for example – a well-placed Monsoon could send enemy champions underneath your team’s towers, or heal the entire team.
Supports are often paired with Marksmen, in order to keep them alive. However, a good support can roam and place wards to provide vision to the team. They also itemize mostly towards their team’s needs, bringing either more tankiness or healing/shielding.
I suggest using Seraphine, Sona, Blitzcrank, or Braum, because they are fairly easy to play and a lot of fun too! Other decent champions would be Nami, Soraka, or Janna, but you need to practice using their abilities quite a bit beforehand.
