League of Legends Patch 11.18 is slated to hit live Thursday, Sept. 9, one day later than normal due to Labor day.
It seems Riot put the extra day to good use; many champions are being patched in order to optimize the meta for the League of Legends World Championship. Based off what we know, here are the 5 best bot lane duos in League of Legends Patch 11.18.
5 Best Bot Lane Duos in League of Legends Patch 11.18
1. Ashe and Karma
Ashe will be receiving a small nerf this patch but Karma is balancing out this duo with some buffs. With their large slow and AOE damage combination, this bot lane duo will often push through minion waves and harass the enemy duo at the same time, making them a deadly pair.
2. Twitch and Zilean
Twitch is receiving a nice buff which lands him a spot on this list with one of his signature duos, Zilean. Together, Zilean can give Twitch a lot of mobility to get in position and shred with his ultimate. The infamous combo of putting a Zilean bomb on Twitch while he is invisible is also another strong ability that the bot lane duo share.
3. Miss Fortune and Leona
Miss Fortune is receiving a buff which will make her bot lane duo with Leona a very strong lane. Together, the two provide a heavy engage burst combo that not many other bot lanes can mimic or deal with.
4. Kai'sa and Thresh
Kai'sa is receiving a buff while Thresh is getting slightly nerfed, but together these two will remain a strong bot lane duo. These two are great at getting in and out of fights together. With their jungler, they can win almost any skirmish.
5. Varus and Xerath
Varus and Xerath are known as a strong pair in the bot lane due to their immense poke range and damage. Varus has been popular recently which resulted in some nerfs in Patch 11.18, but this pair will surely still strand strong together with their annoying gameplay.
