League of Legends Top Lane Tier List 10.13

S Tier: Darius, Garen, Wukong, Maokai, Fiora, Volibear

Spotlight: Darius

Darius has long been the king of top lane. He is a well-rounded top laner who is a serious kill threat while also being able to build traditional tank items. Darius' healing from Decimate (Q) and extra attack damage from reaching five stacks of Hemorrhage (passive) make him dangerous in the early game and a tough champion to gank. He excels at winning lane with no assistance from his jungler and can easily turn enemy ganks into double kills when he is ahead. If you are looking for a tank who can also shred through the enemy team, consider giving the dunk master a try.

A Tier: Mordekaiser, Kled, Jax, Camille, Renekton, Urgot, Aatrox, Vladimir, Malphite

Spotlight: Jax

In a meta that features newer champions such as Volibear, Urgot, and Sett, its easy to forget about Jax, one of League of Legends' most stable champions. Its difficult to find a meta where Jax performs poorly, so he is a great champion to add to your pool. In top lane, Jax is excellent and winning one on one fights and sieging towers. A dominant Jax player will be able to win his lane and transition into a front line bruiser who can dive on to carries that step out of place.

B Tier-Tryndamere, Sett, Teemo, Shen, Ornn, Kayle, Gnar, Riven, Illaoi

Spotlight: Sett

When Sett first released in early 2020, he was a problematic champion. He could easily collect double and triple kills with no help. Sett dominated the meta and was an S-tier pick in both the top land and jungle while also being viable in mid lane and even support. That version of Sett, however, is a thing of the past. Sett has been hit with nerfs in several of the last patches and "The Boss" feels like more of a situational pick in the current meta. He is still strong against true fighter types such as Pantheon and Yasuo, and tank mages such as Vladimir. Sett is still viable in the right situation, but he is far from pick or ban status.
