Here are the five best mid laners in League of Legends Patch 12.11.

Mid lane is one of the most important roles players can play in League of Legends in charge of being both a carry and focal point around your team, as well as providing assistance to top and bot lane when possible. While mid lane is a great chance for players to try out Champions that are weak early game, picking a good mid laner is essential to winning. Here are the best mid laners in Patch 12.11, according to data from op.gg.

5 Best Mid Laners in League of Legends Patch 12.11

5. Lux

Lux's extremely simple yet powerful kit makes her a great mid laner, especially for players who are just getting into the role or the game in general. Her abilities and combos are simple to learn and memorize, her builds are relatively straight forward, and she can provide great utility and damage for her team. Lux is a great pick for low elos, however she struggles significantly in higher ranks, making her less feasible as a mid laner as players progress through the ranks.

4. Viktor

As seen in the Netflix show Arcane, Viktor is another solid choice for mid lane. Viktor is a battle mage, with great scaling and team fighting capabilities. While playing Viktor requires good positioning and constant kiting, his AoE and utility make him a great addition to a team.

3. Yone

Yone is an incredibly strong character to play mid lane with. His E allows him to inflict plenty of burst damage, and his abilities aren't countered by many popular mid lane Champions. As long as players manage to keep their farm up and not get pushed back too far, Yone is a Champion that plays consistently well across all regions.

2. Veigar

With a 52% win rate, Veigar is a great pick for League veterans and novices alike thanks to his easy-to-understand abilities and incredibly high burst damage capabilities. Once Veigar gets fed, he can one-shot opponents with ease, and his cage is great for enabling kills for other teammates even if Veigar's own damage isn't very high.

1. Singed

At a whopping 56% global win rate, Singed is dominating mid lane in Patch 12.11. One of Singed's biggest weaknesses was his squishiness in early game, however the durability patch has made it much easier for him to survive the laning phase. Additionally, the fact that it's harder for Champions to be one-shotted has been great for Singed, allowing him more time to turn fights around. Besides the Grievous Wounds nerf, most changes from the durability patch have been great for Singed, allowing him to become one of the best mid laners for the most recent patch.
