League of Legends Patch 11.21 is going to hit servers soon this week. Patch 11.21 will be released on Wednesday, Oct. 20 with many confirmed changes finally shifting the meta away from replicating the competitive meta at Worlds. With one top laner getting a significant buff, here are the five best top laners in League of Legends Patch 11.21.

5 Best Top Laners in League of Legends Patch 11.21

1. Teemo

Teemo is receiving significant buffs for the first time in awhile, and from the looks of it they are almost certain to make him a nightmare to deal with. With enough CDR, the new changes to Teemo will make it so that his Blinding Dart (Q) will have a significant increase in uptime.

2. Darius

Darius is playing off the back of his buffs in Patch 11.20 and has proven that they worked. The changes have created a much stronger Darius than we have seen this season, making him a top pick for any team.

3. Poppy

Poppy is a pick that has emerged as a strong way to counter mobility. Recently, she has shown through her incredible ability to tank and disrupt that she is a top pick for any top laner.

4. Renekton

Renekton is obviously a stable priority pick in the top lane with his presence being consistent for months. His early game snowballs into gigantic leads with his only weakness being falling off in the late game.

5. Gnar

Gnar is showing a strong performance across League of Legends and that will not change in Patch 11.21. His high impact ultimate in mega form is still shifting team fights dramatically, and his early laning with his ranged attack creates a comfortable laning phase against most match ups.
