League of Legends Patch 9.12 expects to alter the top lane, and the mid lane might also be stirred by Patch 9.12. Despite the changes, the assassins of the mid lane will still be good. Here are the five best mid laners for League of Legends Patch 9.12.
Talon is a great choice, especially when the opposing team does not have a great way to quickly notify that you are roaming. His roaming potential makes him a strong contender for mid lane.
Katarina has an immense potential if you can master her ins and outs. She can engage and disengage quick while dealing strong damage. That makes her good against teams that cannot burst her down fast enough to stop her from causing their health bars to disappear.
Ahri is another champion with a high ceiling. Her passive can sustain her through laning, and she has stronger wave clear than other mid laners. The combo allows her to gain an early lead over most mid laners and roam efficiently.
Vladimir's sustain is unrivaled by another champion. His survivability in lane is also a great way to make sure an opposing solo laner does not get an advantage going into the mid to late game. Vlad also has great team fight potential with his multiple area-of-effect abilities.
Zed's ability to lock on to a target and get the kill and get out is great for solo queue. His shadows, if set up correctly, allow for mobility and engage onto easily killed targets. Zed's Item path also allows for him to roam and push any advantages he has acquired.
