The best mid laners in League of Legends Patch 10.4 will be interesting because solo lanes have been turned upside-down in Season 10 with healers like Soraka and Taric having more than a 55 percent win rate in ranked solo queue.

But League of Legends Patch 10.4 will hope to restore some semblance of order to the mid lane with heavy nerfs planned for Soraka and Sona. With those changes in mind, here are the five best mid laners on League of Legends Patch 10.4.

Best Mid Laners in League of Legends Patch 10.4

1. Cassiopeia

Cassiopeia has always been a strong champion after completing three items. Her kit allows her to deal sustained magic damage that can either whittle down objectives like Baron Nashor or Elder Drake with ease or burst out opposing AD carries.

Her synergy with runes like Conquerer and Phase Rush allows her unique answers to different mid lane opponents and significant utility in mid game team fights. Cassiopeia will be a force to be reckoned with in the mid lane on Patch 10.4.

2. Kassadin

The late game scaling mid laner once again finds himself on the higher end of the champion pool with a kit that rewards players for reaching level 16 and completing three core items. Kassadin is a champion that can carry a game on his own and that kind of power is rare in League of Legends.

With no nerfs or buffs to most mid laners on Patch 10.4, Kassadin remains a strong opponent if he can survive the early game.

3. Vladimir

Another late game monster, Vladimir remains in a great position for players in solo queue. His ability to reach 35 percent cooldown reduction at level 10 makes him a threat during mid game team fights and it only gets worse in the late game when he can one shot the opposing carry with very little room for counterplay.

The only real nerf he has received in Season 10 has been the most recent increase to the price of stopwatch. But the additional 50 gold shouldn't trouble him to the point where he's no longer one of the best mid laners in the game.

4. LeBlanc

LeBlanc is one of the most skill oriented mid laners currently in League of Legends and is rewarded for playing correctly with the ability to one shot an opposing carry from over a screen away. Her consistent kill potential after level 6 is a terror to her opponents in lane and her ability to roam bot-side quickly gives her the chance to snowball her lead and get her team ahead.

But, players should be careful before taking LeBlanc into solo queue. The champion requires a lot of practice and skill to use effectively. So practice in normal matches or the Practice Tool if you want to refine your skills on the mid lane assassin.

5. Talon

While Talon was already doing well on Patch 10.3, the additional buffs on Patch 10.4 make him even stronger. The buffs were intended to make him a viable jungler, but push the 52 percent win rate mid laner into the top tier.

The main buff to Talon is an increase in his Blade's End (Passive) damage to monsters, which is increased to 120 percent in an effort to make him a viable jungler. This change gives Talon an even greater opportunity to disrupt his opponents' plans by invading the enemy jungler and roaming at nearly every opportunity.

His consistent wave clear and all in potential on most mid lane mages make him one of the best snowballing mid laners on Patch 10.4.
