5 Best Top Laners in League of Legends Patch 12.15

1. Aatrox

Aatrox new Eclipse build is effective as it gives him a lot of omni-vamp and armor damage, which helps him keep up with the champions in the top lane. His lethality allows him to one-shot the enemies and can execute a full combo against them.

2. Darius

Darius is one of the biggest winners after his durability update. He continues to dominate the top lane with Patch 12.15 as he can stack the hemorrhage and conqueror to overwhelm the opponent. He can also corner enemies with less healing. Next time you decide to play top lane, remember that Darius nearly has a 52% win rate.

3. Jax

Although Jax received a nerf, he is still a great champion to choose because he still can cause enough damage. He can damage enemies and one-shot them with his Empower when it reaches his max level. Enemies can have a difficult time countering him with his Frozen Hear which grants him ability, haste and armor.

4. Shen

Shen is known for teleporting himself to an allied champion when he uses his ultimate. Patch 12.15 makes Shen even stronger with his laning phase cooldown extension to teleport. Shen's E also got buffed, so if you are playing against Shen, we wish you luck!

5. Fiora

Fiora is known for her speed of her bluesteel rapier. Her duelists dance allows her to challenge nearby enemies and can choose what direction she will strike from. Her ult, Grand Challenge reveals four vital enemy champions and gains speed while she is near them. Try running away from her, but we doubt you can.
