With the end of Season 10 approaching, we give the best champions to help you climb in League of Legends.

Mid Laners

1. Diana

Assassins tend to be the best champions in solo queue because of how disorganized teams are (which makes it easy for you to find small skirmishes and picks). The downside of assassins is that they’re also very unforgiving and difficult to play. However, Diana is by far the easiest of the assassins in League of Legends, with her dash reset, shield to help you win trades or farm, and high-impact ult.

2. Vladimir

A great pick if you’re a mid/top main, as Vlad can slot into either lane. With his incredible scaling (he gets AP based on his extra health and health based on his extra AP), ability to sustain through lane, immunity to CC with his pool, and great teamfighting with his ult, Vladimir is a solid pick in almost any situation.

3. Ahri

She’s sort of a weird hybrid between assassin and mage, but Ahri is a lot like the Warwick of mid lane. She can wave clear, she has CC, she can teamfight, she can burst targets. Ahri just does everything that you want out of a solo queue mid laner.

4. Malzahar

While many will recommend Annie to beginners, I think Malzahar is the most friendly mid for newer players in low elo. He gets a free spell shield on his passive, he has permanent lane priority with his voidlings, and his ult gives him an unmatched pick potential at Level 6.

5. Nocturne

An unconventional pick, yes, but mid lane Nocturne has actually been fairly strong for a while in solo queue. He’s almost an AD version of Diana, but with the advantage of having a global ult. His ultimate gives you easy picks on enemies and also lets you start fights with ease.
