Here are the five best bot lane duos for League of Legends Patch 12.13.

Having a strong bot lane can make or break a game of League of Legends; a strong ADC and Support can make winning any game a breeze, while a struggling ADC or Support can make the game more difficult for everyone. Good synergy between your bot lane champions can make winning the lane phase significantly easier, and Patch 12.13 has allowed certain duo combinations to thrive. Here are the five bot lane duos with the highest win rates, according to data from U.GG.

5 Best Bot Lane Duos in League of Legends Patch 12.13

5. Jhin + Xerath

Jhin and Xerath are both incredibly strong ranged champions by themselves, so it makes sense that they work well when paired together. Both characters have such long range with their attacks that it makes poking out the enemy team pretty easy. With this team combo, it's all about rapidly stringing combos together to take out enemies.

4. Nilah + Sona

Nilah was introduced in Patch 12.13, and she has the ability to become a powerhouse when paired with Sona, as the two have a 55% win rate. Nilah's passive ability amplifies the shielding and healing of nearby allies — Nilah and the healing/shielding champion both get increased heals and shields, which is perfect for Sona (who both heals and shields with her W). Nilah also has an ability that grants her movement speed, which can be combined with Sona's E to run down enemies with ease.

3. Sivir + Blitzcrank

Sivir received some changes in Patch 12.13 that intended to make her lean into her strengths as a close range, AoE DPS hyper carry, and she is currently set up to have the strongest AoE DPS output of all marksmen in the game. Now that she's received some buffs to her short-range gameplay, pairing her with Blitzcrank, who can pull enemies close, is perfect for playing to Sivir's new strengths.

2. Seraphine + Senna

Much like last patch, Seraphine ADC paired with a Senna support is still an incredibly powerful team combination, with a 55.45% win rate. The healing buffs made in recent patches make Seraphine and Senna a lethal combination. Combining Seraphine's E with Senna's W allows the pair to stun enemies with ease, and their combination of strong CC and sustain allows them to farm during the laning phase with ease.

1. Sivir + Sona

With a 55.60% win rate, Sivir and Sona are the strongest bot lane duo of Patch 12.13. Sona's E allows the pair to get in and out of close-range quickly, allowing Sivir to do large amounts of damage rapidly. Sivir's new abilities allow her to dominate enemies if she can stay alive long enough to deal her scaled damage, and this is made much easier with Sona's powerful heals and shields, making the two an incredibly strong combination in Patch 12.13.
