With League of Legends Patch 11.5 right around the corner, mid laners should be thankful that they didn't take a huge blow after the slew of buffs we saw come their way in the previous update. In this patch we see an Azir nerf but on the other side Kog'Maw and Qiyana came out with some nice buffs that'll increase their damage output.
Overall in this new patch, we'll be seeing more of the same in the mid-lane, high mobility, and big damage.
Here's a list of the five best mid laners in League of Legends Patch 11.5:
Top 5 Best Mid Laners In League of Legends Patch 11.5
Yone has sat at the top of ranked for a while now and with good reason, he does big damage. He doesn't even sweat when it comes to the task of bursting down enemy champions and if he's given a lead you can almost forget about the lane. With no nerfs coming to any of the main items in his kit we can expect this champion to continue to terrorize mid laners going into the future.
Qiyana was on the receiving end of a ton of buffs in Patch 11.5. With increases to the damage of her W and ultimate along with the movement speed gained from her W, this champion is poised to be a big threat in the mid lane this upcoming patch. Couple that with the Serpent's Fang buff and no one will be able to stand up to the damage that she throws out.
Anivia is an absolute problem for any opposing mid laner. Her damage output is ridiculous and is incredibly versatile in regards to her mythic item choices. Everfrost, Luden's Echo, and Liandry's Anguish are all optimal selections for Anivia depending on the team's need. You won't go wrong choosing Anivia as the anchor for your mid lane.
If you need a champion that will absolutely obliterate an enemies health bar Diana is the mid laner for you. She does ridiculous damage and is an absolute bully from the early game onward. If she catches enemy champions loafing around they're as good as dead, thankfully in this patch she hasn't seen any nerfs or buffs to her kit.
Yasuo is on the list for the same reasons as his brother Yone: they both do incredible damage to enemies. The Immortal Shieldbow and Infinity Edge power spike is one of the most devastating combos in the game, it's behind these items that Yasuo is such a powerhouse in the mid lane.
