Here are the 5 best supports on Patch 10.7 for carrying games and climbing the League of Legends solo queue ranked ladder!
Back in the day, supports were useless champions good for wards and nothing else. Now, supports are the true carries in the bot lane and can often be the difference between a win and a loss. Here are the 5 best supports on Patch 10.7:
53.07% Win Rate | 6.3% Pick Rate | 1.4% Ban Rate
Tempered Fate is the most underrated ability in League of Legends.
Putting five opponents in stasis to reposition and perfectly time abilities to blow up their HP bars is borderline broken if used correctly. That’s not even mentioning the self-stasis Bard can provide in troublesome situations to delay death and wait for reinforcements.
Although Tempered Fate has the biggest outplay potential, the best and worst Bard players are separated by their use of Magical Journey to roam in the early game and rotate around the map as a team in the late game.
52.72% Win Rate | 12.0% Pick Rate | 0.9% Ban Rate
Nami remaining a top tier support in a meta filled with tanks armed with multiple crowd control tools is incredible.
Enchanters have been left for dust in Season 10 (and most of Season 9), so to see the Tidecaller in the S tier provides a beacon of hope for support players who love to shield and heal their carries.
During the laning phase, Nami is all about keeping her ADC’s HP bar filled (Ebb and Flow) and empowering their auto attacks (Tidecaller’s Blessing) for small trades.
As for the late game, Nami is all about peel with Bubble and Tidal Wave being essential tools to stop an oncoming assassin or bruiser in their tracks.
50.64% Win Rate | 10.8% Pick Rate | 21.0% Ban Rate
“Fasting Senna” is really just support Senna. She goes without farm for the first 20 minutes of the game and generates gold via a support item, but after picking up 3 items she’s just as strong as any other AD Carry.
To execute this strategy, grab a champion that can play support, but also scales well with gold. Galio, Sett, and Trundle are good examples of this.
In lane, play a passive game and let the “support” farm while Senna grabs stacks of Absolution until her gold income item fully upgrades. Then, at the 30-minute mark, you’ll have 5 strong champions with multiple items, instead of the usual 4 champions and a support.
Enjoy the 5v4s!
50.48% Win Rate | 11.0% Pick Rate | 24.6% Ban Rate
Leona remains as obnoxious as ever on Patch 10.7, perma-stunning enemies, and being an absolute menace during the laning phase.
If you want to add Leona to your support champion pool (please don’t), learn how to layer your crowd control to keep an enemy stun-locked for the maximum duration (3 seconds, Solar Flare – Zenith Blade – Shield of Daybreak).
Once you’ve nailed this, killing enemy carries both in lane and during team fights should be easy!
51.78% Win Rate | 9.3% Pick Rate | 18.4% Ban Rate
Everyone knows Blitzcrank, everyone knows how to play Blitzcrank, and everyone hates Blitzcrank.
One thing that many Blitzcrank players fail to utilize is his incredible early game power stemming from roams to the mid lane or to join with his jungler.
Merely dipping into the fog of war is enough to terrify the enemy team, but when you show up in the mid lane or enemy jungle with Boots of Mobility, they’ll never enter their unwarded jungle again.
If you can, wait until the enemy Flashes before throwing out a Rocket Grab, sometimes they’ll waste their Flash and you can simply chase them down with Overdrive.
Who do you think are the best supports on Patch 10.7? Which supports would you like to see buffed on Patch 10.8?
