League of Legends patch 10.1 released Tuesday as the first patch of the new year. Aside from the latest champion punching his way into the rift, this patch comes with a slew of minor changes to shake up the meta just before the season starts.
The ranked season will begin in a few days, so below are five mid laners champions to get you started. Here are the five best mid laners in League of Legends patch 10.1.
Kassadin has been one of the strongest mid laners for a while. This patch sees only a minor nerf to his movement speed which is a negligible change at worst. He will still most likely be a strong mid lane pick until he is finally hit with some meaningful nerfs.
Diana's rework seems to have been a success so far with her win and play rate respectable since her changes last patch. She will look to remain relevant this patch, but so far she looks like a champion to add to your pool if she fits your play style.
Fizz has been a strong solo queue pick since his minor rework in Season 9. He's gone under the radar with his pick rate remaining modest, but he statistically performs well into the most picked champions in the meta.
Neeko running Glacial Augment makes her a strong pick. The slows make it much easier for Neeko to land her root and as many procs on her Q. Neeko also has defensive tools to help her deal with champions such as Diana and Kassadin.
As for Taliyah, she has a unique play style that makes it really hard for melee champions like Fizz, Diana and Kassadin to deal with in lane. She also roams well meaning she can avoid fighting in lanes that are tough for her.
