This is a list of the 5 best supports in League of Legends on Patch 10.16

Tank supports have had their day. Time to welcome back the mages and enchanters to the League of Legends meta. The best supports on Patch 10.16 all offer excellent buffs for their carry while also possessing key peeling tools to keep them safe and topped up on health during a team fight.

Just two supports were subject to buffs on Patch 10.16, Morgana and Rakan. Morg’s Dark Binding cooldown fell from 11 seconds to 10 seconds, while Rakan’s ultimate bonus movement speed increased from 50% to 75%.

Here are the 5 best supports on Patch 10.16:

5) Lux

53.10% Win Rate | 10.1% Pick Rate | 3.6% Ban Rate

When Lux isn’t dominating from the bot lane role alongside Sona, she’s doing it from the support role instead.

Primarily a mid laner, the Lady of Luminosity excels at poking her opponents down in lane and setting up kills with well placed Light Bindings. These traits lend themselves well to the bot lane as well and can wreak havoc when paired with an aggressive, early game marksman.

4) Sona

55.00% Win Rate | 6.8% Pick Rate | 3.9% Ban Rate

Although she boasts an insane 55.00% win rate on the current patch, Sona doesn’t crack the top three on this list. This is mainly due to the fact that not all solo queue players have caught onto the benefits of playing Lux-Sona in the bot lane and thus she’s not as popular as the alternatives.

However, the sustain the Maven of the Strings provides both during the laning phase and in team fights is unparalleled at the moment and is definitely worth trying out even for those who are autofilled.

3) Blitzcrank

50.81% Win Rate | 8,1% Pick Rate | 18.8% Ban Rate

One of these things is not like the others.

Blitzcrank has broken the meta of enchanter supports and carved his own path, Rocket Grabbing ADCs and supports alike in the bot lane to prevent their scaling and build an early gold lead from which to snowball. Squishy supports stand no chance against Blitzcrank.

2) Morgana

50.89% Win Rate | 10.6% Pick Rate | 30.7% Ban Rate

It comes as no surprise that Caitlyn’s meteoric rise to the bot lane S tier has been paired with a similar meteoric rise for Morgana.

The duo go together hand in hand due to the ease at which you can land a Dark Binding plus Yordle Snap Trap combo for a huge burst of damage and excellent lane control early on.

1) Lulu

51.45% Win Rate | 16.2% Pick Rate | 23.1% Ban Rate

Lulu tops the charts amongst supports on Patch 10.16 with an excellent 51.45% win rate.

The Fae Sorceress has benefitted immensely from the rise of scaling carries in the current meta as she can both peel and heal them during game-deciding team fights.
