The best bot lane duos in League of Legends Patch 10.4 will be shaken a bit from previous updates with Aphelios receiving yet another round of nerfs and Caitlyn receiving some buffs. Here are the five best bot lane duos to play on League of Legends Patch 10.4.

Best Bot Lane Duos League of Legends Patch 10.4

1. Miss Fortune and Morgana

Miss Fortune has become a top-tier AD carry in Season 10 and has only gotten stronger with nerfs to both of her major lane opponents Senna and Aphelios. Her early game damage with Love Tap (Passive) and Double Up (Q) give her a strong laning phase and a well placed Bullet Time (R) can easily win her team a mid game or late game team fight.

When paired with the safety of a Morgana, Miss Fortune becomes enabled to do even more damage. A well timed Black Shield (E) can prevent long range crowd control like Ornn's Call of the Forge God (R) from interrupting Bullet Time and prevent her team from getting picked around major objectives.

2. Aphelios and Thresh

This bot lane duo was strong on Patch 10.3 and will continue to be a dominant force on Patch 10.4. Aphelios has an insane amount of damage available in his kit even though a few of his guns have received minor nerfs over the past three patches. When he has the right combination of weapons, like Crescendum and Severum, he can single-handedly win a team fight.

When Aphelios' damage and pick potential with Gravitum is added to the strong engage and pick power of Thresh, the duo is able to maintain kill pressure early on in bot lane and threaten ganks with Thresh's Lantern (W). Thresh is also able to save Aphelios from sticky situations using a Flash and Lantern combination that can change the outlook of a mid game or late game fight around an objective.

3. Miss Fortune and Braum

Miss Fortune has already established herself as a top tier AD carry, but when Braum is taken from the enemy team, she gets even stronger. Traditionally, Braum has been seen as the answer to Miss Fortune because his Unbreakable (E) can block the damage from Miss Fortune's Bullet Time (R).

But when paired with Miss Fortune, Braum's Unbreakable can be used to prevent a number of long range damage and crowd control abilities from hitting Miss Fortune during her ultimate and provide a strong front line for the rest of his team.

4. Miss Fortune and Thresh

In case you haven't noticed, Miss Fortune is very strong on Patch 10.4 and when paired with engage and pick potential of a Thresh becomes a menace in all stages of the game.

Thresh's utility, when combined with the damage output of Miss Fortune, makes for a strong bot lane duo that has very few legitimate answers.

5. Xayah and Rakan

With the nerfs to Xayah and Rakan after their release, the AD carry and support really only succeed when played with one another. Xayah's current win rate in solo queue is well below 50 percent at 46 percent. Which, coincidentally, is where Akali was before her quickly reverted nerf on Patch 10.3.

When paired with a Rakan, that win rate jumps significantly, to the point where the bot lane duo is viable in professional play. Rakan's strong initiation in mid game team fights gives his team a major advantage around objectives and Xayah's Featherstorm (R) and Bladecaller (E) combination can keep her safe from opposing carries diving into the back line.
