5 Best Top Laners in League of Legends Patch 9.17
Patch 9.17 does not bring much change due to it being one of the patches that is coming right before the official World Champion Patch, Patch 9.19. Because of this there is not much change in the top lane, but here are the five best champions to play in the top lane in Patch 9.17.
A good Illaoi player offers a great deal to teamfight, especially ones where her team is engaging and within the jungle. This presence paired with her laning phase strength makes her a tier-one champ in the top lane.
Jax is a very rewarding character if you spend the time to master every aspect of his kit. Once you have done so, Jax becomes one of the strongest duelists and can take you very far.
Kled is a great choice for the top lane because of skarl's ability to grant Kled amounts of health that your opponents cannot account for. This surprise factor along with Kled's strong kit makes him a great choice.
Mordekaiser is still very strong and has been since the release of his rework. His kit is great at playing safe or aggressive in the laning phase and then later in teamfights, Mordekaiser can put a great amount of pressure on the enemy backline with his ultimate.
Darius is still a powerhouse in SoloQ top lane and that will most likely not change until Patch 9.2 or later due to World taking place on Patch 9.19 and Riot not wanting to shake up too much before then.
