5 Best Top Laners in League of Legends Patch 10.1

5. Mordekaiser

Mordekaiser is still hands down the strongest top laner in the game. If given a small lead, he becomes a one man army that will destroy your team in a matter of seconds. Thanks to items like Rylai's and Liandry's being powerful right now, Mordekaiser finds himself sitting pretty on top of the tier list.

4. Vladimir

Vladimir is in a very similar spot to Morde with the items he uses just being sleeper strong such as Proto-Belt and Spirit Visage. Even when you purchase Grievous Wounds, Vladimir still proves to be a problematic champion.

3. Kled

Kled's unique play style makes him versatile and dangerous. He's been getting increasingly popular among top laners. His ability to help his team hard engage with his ultimate is valuable in the mid game for contesting objectives.

2. Shen

Shen is a solid pick for those wanting to farm well, deal with a lane opponent and provide global pressure. Shen does a surprising amount of damage that people just don't expect. He's also a great counter pick to Kled.

1. Tryndamere

As for Tryndamere, he is a hard counter to Mordekaiser, if not the best counter to him. Tryndamere is capable of running Mordekaiser and bullying him in lane.
