We give our League of Legends tier list for Patch 10.13.

Patch 10.13 was probably most notable for the long-awaited Pool Party skins finally arriving. Still, there were plenty of buffs to niche champions – like Gnar, Kog’Maw, Nocturne, Vi, and Yorick – that could shake up the latest League of Legends tier list.

Our aggregated League of Legends tier list pulled data from ten different sites around the internet to see how they each ranked the top champions in each role in Patch 10.13. From that, we are able to give our average ranking of each champion that was graded or listed in at least half of those tier lists. As always, you can find the link to all the underlying data here.

  • * = new to the League of Legends tier list this patch
  • ⇑ = improved (rated at least one tier higher than the previous patch)
  • ⇓ = declined (rated at least one tier lower than the previous patch)
  • ⇐ = borderline-up (within 10% of being in the next-higher tier)
  • ⇒ = borderline-down (within 10% of being in the next-lower tier)

Rising Picks

For the second-straight patch, Volibear is the biggest-rising top laner. He improved from the high-B tier to now jumping into the S tier. He’s gone from D tier to S tier as a top laner in just two patches.

Dropping Picks

After Kayn‘s reign in the top lane (rhyming absolutely intentional) came to an end, it’s another jungler who fell furthest in Patch 10.13. Olaf dropped from low-C to low-D tier.

Underrated Picks

Shen is the A tier champion with the lowest pick rate, clocking in at just 3.4% pick rate. Another underrated pick would be Urgot, who is borderline A tier despite only having a 1.7% pick rate.

Overrated Picks

I beg of you, stop picked Aatrox unless you’re a one-trick or just smashing with him. He’s consistently a B tier pick, yet currently has the top pick rate in the top lane at over 12%. Another champion with a top-10 pick rate not in the A tier is Irelia.

Buffed Champions


Some buffs to his Hop’s attack speed (and how long the attack speed boost lasts) gave Gnar a slight bump, and he is inching closer to the B tier, but he still has a bit of a ways to go before he’s hopping into the top lane meta.


The Piercing Light buff was aimed at bo lane Lucian, but curiously it didn’t enable him to become an even bigger top lane bully. He currently sits in the low-D tier, down from the low-C tier where he was in the last patch.


Small base stat buffs didn’t really help him Ryze up out of the mid-D tier this patch.


He still sits in the mid-C tier in Patch 10.13, despite the buffs to the range on his Maiden of the Mist. Unfortunately, Yorick is still very much in the grave of the top lane meta.

Nerfed Champions


Another nerf to Cassiopeia, this time in her base MR, that was probably aimed more at mid lane. Nonetheless, Cassio top is in a weaker spot down in that mid-D tier.


The nerfs to Ornn’s passive, preventing him from just recovering mana and health by building raw mana and health items seemed to be a big deal to knee-cap his laning. He is slightly weaker after the nerfs, but not that much, sitting comfortably in the B tier.
