Having a good bot lane duo that can provide consistent damage in mid and late game team fights is the key to victory in a game of League of Legends. With the arrival of League of Legends Patch 10.3 expected soon, here are the five best bot lane duos on League of Legends Patch 10.3.

1. Miss Fortune and Leona

The dynamic bot lane duo remains at the top of the list on Patch 10.3, despite both champions receiving some nerfs. The nerfs to Miss Fortune hit a bit harder than the nerfs to Leona.

On Patch 10.3, Miss Fortune loses .75 percent attack speed per level, which can add up over time. But, purchasing an early Zeal could help boost Miss Fortune's attack speed in the short term without delaying an Essence Reaver too much. Miss Fortune's Bullet Time (R) and Double Tap (Q) still do large amounts of damage and can change the outcome of a team fight at a moment's notice.

The nerfs to Leona are insignificant, with only a slight damage reduction on Zenith Blade (E) and Eclipse (W) at later levels. Leona's kit, filled with crowd control and engage, makes her one of the strongest champions in bot lane and helps her punish any opponent caught out of position on the map.

2. Aphelios and Thresh

While Aphelios and Braum were initially seen as one of the premier duo lanes on Patch 10.2, Thresh has slowly risen to become the next partner for Aphelios in the bottom lane.

Aphelios has multiple sources of damage that go untouched on Patch 10.3, with the only nerf to the champion being a reduction in the range of Calibrum empowered follow up attacks from infinite to 2000 range.

Partnered with Thresh's ability to engage with Death Sentence (Q) and peel with Flay (E) and Dark Passage (W), Aphelios is able to dish out even more damage and often end fights before they really have a chance to start.

3. Ezreal and Braum

The buffs to Ezreal's attack speed on Patch 10.3 help him and Braum to rise to the position of third best duo in the bot lane. Ezreal was already seeing professional play as an answer to Senna in the bot lane, but with the additional boost, it can once again become the powerhouse it was at the 2019 League of Legends World Championship.

Ezreal also has great synergy with Braum. Ezreal is able to add stacks to Braum's Concussive Blows (Passive) by landing his Mystic Shot (Q) and is able to Essence Flux (E) to safety with Braum able to follow using Stand Behind Me (E).

Braum is also able to deny most engages and damage from champions like Ornn, Miss Fortune, LeBlanc, and Zoe with his Unbreakable (E), making him a great champion to pair with most AD carries.

4. Senna and Tahm Kench

Although Patch 10.3 was designed to remove Senna from the AD carry position and return her to her intended role as a support, the modifications to the drop rate of souls for Senna's Absolution (Passive) doesn't go far enough to take her out of bot lane.

When partnered with Tahm Kench, or any other support that makes use of the tank support items, Senna is able to avoid the penalty for killing a cannon minion. She will scale significantly slower, but the ability to gain souls for slaying jungle monsters will still help her get to the mid game in a relatively normal time frame.

5. Miss Fortune and Nautilus

Nautilus remains a top tier option in the bottom lane and can be paired with either Miss Fortune or Aphelios. Both AD carries have kill pressure early and can scale well into the mid and late game on Patch 10.3.

Nautilus adds the ability to set up easy ganks for the jungler and start out team fights with his Dredge Line (Q) and Depth Charge (R). Depth Charge can also be used to peel assassins and tanks away from his team's carries and his Staggering Blow (Passive) can be used to further create space for his team to do damage and win fights.
