Here are the 5 best ADCs on Patch 10.8 for carrying games and climbing the League of Legends solo queue ranked ladder!

Times have changed, metas have shifted, and players have adapted but AD Carry remains one of the most important roles in League of Legends on Patch 10.8. Back in the day, the marksman was limited to scaling and providing late game team fight damage. Now, the best ADCs can single-handedly win a game through dominating the laning phase, utilizing smart rotations, and choking out the enemy.

The most recent update to League of Legends, Patch 10.8, contained three key marksman buffs that could be exactly what’s needed to transform the currently bland bot lane meta into one heaving with different champion options to liven up the bot lane.

While Ashe, Tristana, and Xayah have failed to make the top five bot laners so far, they’ve had a large impact on the meta and opened up the possibilities for marksman mains on the next few patches.

If you’re less willing to adapt and prefer to stick with what’s strongest on the current patch though, here are the 5 best ADCs to pick:

5) Yasuo

53.85% Win Rate | 2.6% Pick Rate | 48.2% Ban Rate

One non-marksman continues to show up in the bot lane uninvited throughout Season 10 due to the ease at which he synergizes with meta supports like Blitzcrank, Leona, and Nautilus.

What Yasuo lacks in auto-attack range he makes up for in damage and mobility when allowed to walk up to enemy champions. Not only that, but he can completely nullify the attacks of a ranged lane opponent with a single press of W – Wind Wall, making any trade a worthwhile one.

If the Ionian Wanderer is allowed to reach the mid to late game with a gold lead or on even footing, he can take over the game without a moment’s notice. The key to reaching that point is to play as safe as possible in the early levels.

Farm from distance with Q – Steel Tempest to avoid poke damage and hop in and out of the minion wave with E – Sweeping Blade to pick up difficult CS while taking as little damage as possible.

Only once you reach Level 6 should you be looking to 2v2 with your support key to setting up knock-ups for you to cast R – Last Breath and burst down your opponents. If you nail this, you have the potential to win any game with Yasuo.

4) Jhin

51.62% Win Rate | 15.5% Pick Rate | 4.4% Ban Rate

Jhin enters the top five ADC list where he belongs – Number four.

Jhin has clear weaknesses in his lack of mobility, escape tools, and late game damage compared to more heavily-scaling ADCs like Jinx, Tristana, or Xayah. However, the Virtuoso makes up for this with his early game power and utility.

Setting up kills in the laning phase or mid game is a simple task with Jhin as a single well-placed W – Deadly Flourish will root an opponent for up to 2 seconds, allowing your team to close the gap and shut them down.

Once he reaches Level 6, Jhin can take this utility one further with R – Curtain Call slowing enemies from up to 3500 units away to find picks or start a team fight.

Jhin certainly doesn’t lack damage with the massive burst provided by his Passive – Whisper enough to decimate any squishy’s HP bar.

3) Vayne

50.81% Win Rate | 13.5% Pick Rate | 13.0% Ban Rate

Everyone’s favorite 1v9 marksman comes in at #3 on our top five list with players flocking to the Night Hunter to cut down the abundance of beefy tanks in the meta at the moment.

In the laning phase, Vayne can match her opponents with the mobility and quick burst damage of Q – Tumble. In the mid game, R – Final Hour is enough to allow Vayne to maneuver around team fights and dish out high DPS with W – Silver Bolts. As for the late game, she can hold her own against charging assassins and bruisers with the self-peel provided by E – Condemn.

2) Caitlyn

50.20% Win Rate | 19.7% Pick Rate | 17.4% Ban Rate

If you’re an impatient ADC player and want to win games in the first 15 minutes then Caitlyn is the champion for you. Her massive auto-attack range and lane control abilities allow her to dictate the laning phase and establish a gold lead for herself early on to snowball from.

Utilize P – Headshot and Q – Piltover Peacemaker to poke your lane opponents and maintain a large HP difference throughout the laning phase to increase your CS lead.

Further your advantage by strategically placing W – Yordle Snap Traps around the lane to remove escape routes or prevent enemy engages. If ever in trouble, a quick cast of E – 90 Caliber Net should be enough to dismiss any danger.

Ideally, you’ll leave the early game with a few kills under your belt, but as long as you have a healthy gold lead over your ADC counter-part you’re set to have a successful game.

1) Miss Fortune

51.82% Win Rate | 21.7% Pick Rate | 10.7% Ban Rate

Miss Fortune remains the number one ADC pick in the current meta and you should add her to your champion pool right now if you want easy wins in solo queue.

Q – Double Up is the perfect lane tool to poke your opponents, win trades, and farm safely. Combine this with the attack speed boost of W – Strut and MF’s damage is already excellent before a single item has been purchased.

The main reason Miss Fortune is such a powerful pick is her terrifying team fight ultimate, R – Bullet Time, which is capable of reducing an entire enemy team’s health bars to shreds in a matter of seconds.

Even if you’re 10k gold behind or are on the cusp of losing the game, one perfectly-placed and perfectly-timed MF ultimate will turn the tide of the fight and potentially win the game for your team. Practice this skill!
