Here are the 5 best mid laners on Patch 10.7 for carrying games and climbing the League of Legends ranked ladder!

Mid lane remains as versatile and powerful as ever on League of Legends Patch 10.7 with mages, marksmen, assassins, and even tanks showing their face in the center of the map. Here are the 5 best mid laners in the current meta.

5) Vladimir

50.61% Win Rate | 6.8% Pick Rate | 19.2% Ban Rate

If you’re an expert at finding flanks and hiding behind enemy lines for an ambush, Vladimir is the champion for you. Reaching the backline is key for the Crimson Reaper to maximize damage output and instantly blow up squishies with Hemoplague and Tides of Blood.

A mastery of Sanguine Pool is required to safely navigate the laning phase and set up for scaling. Vladimir may be relatively useless during the early levels, but this is offset by his ability to easily dodge ganks and engages with the invulnerability of Sanguine Pool if used correctly.

4) Ekko

51.61% Win Rate | 5.9% Pick Rate | 23.8% Ban Rate

Jungle Ekko’s taken a hit with recent nerfs, but mid lane Ekko is as strong as ever. The Boy Who Shattered time has excellent wave clear, strong dueling power, and an ultimate that will have your enemies tearing their hair out.

The difference between a decent Ekko player and a master Ekko player is the number of roams and rotations through the laning phase. A top Ekko player will constantly be clearing out his wave and dipping into the fog of war to threaten roams to either side lane or joining up with his jungler to invade for deep vision.

3) Kassadin

51.44% Win Rate | 7.4% Pick Rate | 26.8% Ban Rate

As long as Kassadin remains unstoppable at Level 16 with Riftwalk, he will continue to dominate the ranked ladder. Solo queue players simply don’t know how to close games out – or struggle to do so without voice communication or team synergy – and therefore games often reach the 35-40 minute mark, where Kassadin thrives.

If you see an early Kassadin lock-in on the enemy team, you have two options: Draft early game and end the game in 20 minutes or add some heavy crowd control to your team to shut down Kassadin later on.

2) Katarina

52.75% Win Rate | 8.2% Pick Rate | 11.4% Ban Rate

Snowballing a lead is one of the most important skills to learn in solo queue and no champion does it better than Katarina.

Grab an early kill on an unsuspecting enemy mid laner then roam, roam, and roam. Constantly running down to bot lane, avoiding vision, and ganking the 2v2 is the easiest way to snowball your lead and quickly win the game before your team inevitably throws.

1) Diana

51.95% Win Rate | 8.4% Pick Rate | 18.4% Ban Rate

Diana retains her place as the #1 mid laner of the current meta as she continues to dominate her role after an incredibly successful mini rework.

Finding success with Diana is about being patient and waiting for opportunities to Crescent Strike – Lunar Rush in and burst your enemy down, especially in team fights where Moonfall could be a game-changing ability.

Nailing down combos is essential before you jump into solo queue with Diana, particularly Lunar Rush’s reset mechanic, so heading into the practice tool beforehand is advised.
