Our latest League of Legends tier list for Patch 10.7 looks at the best supports in the current meta.

Patch 10.7 ignored the major supports entirely and only saw a couple of niche supports – Galio and the reworked Fiddlesticks – get touched. You might think that means our League of Legends tier list for supports in Patch 10.7 is unaffected but with the ever-changing meta that is certainly not the case!

Our aggregated League of Legends tier list pulled data from ten different sites around the internet to see how they each ranked the top support in the current meta. From that, we are able to give our average ranking of each support that was graded or listed in at least half of those tier lists. Without further ado, our latest League of Legends tier list.

Rising Picks

Maokai

Sites are starting to take notice of the rise in Maokai support. After a huge spike to his play rate last patch, in Patch 10.7 he jumped up from the D tier to now being a B tier pick. FlyQuest will, no doubt, be thrilled to see more trees across the rift.

Sett

Similar to Maokai, Sett support’s pick rate has been on the rise for the last three patches, now at over 9% which puts him into the top 10 for supports by pick rate! With Sett support becoming recognized as meta, he went from the F tier to mid-C tier in our tier list.

Dropping Picks

None

Underrated Picks

Our pick for the most underrated Support in Patch 10.7 is Sona, who has a pick rate below 2% despite being in our B tier. An honorable mention goes to fellow B tier support Shaco who is rated slightly lower than Sona on our League of Legends tier list but has a slightly higher pick rate.

Overrated Picks

Although he’s on the rise in Patch 10.7, Sett is still our overrated pick for supports. The top-10 pick rate isn’t justified by his placing in our C tier, nor his abysmal 47.7% win rate in Platinum and above. That is the worst win rate for any champion in the top-10 most-picked supports.

Buffed Champions

Fiddlesticks

It’s still not entirely clear what role Fiddlesticks will be after his rework, but he does have a 58/42% split of role selection rate between jungle and support, respectively. When he is picked in the support role, Fiddle seems to be faring quite badly, with a 44.6% win rate (although that is likely artificially lowered by more players in ranked being unaccustomed to his new kit). As a result, he is stable from last patch in the low-D tier. I would recommend steering clear until he gets some more buffs or you get more games on the champion.

Galio

The buff to Galio’s Hero’s Entrance where it now grants a shield to all allies in the area was absolutely fantastic for his support play. It brought him back onto our support tier list solidly in the mid-C tier (the last time he was on our support tier list, he was consistently rated F tier). That’s not surprising considering he has a top-10 win rate among supports (up over 4% from the last patch!) despite the fact that his play rate in the role more than doubled.
