5.4 Bottom Lane Tier List

This Tier List is intended to help players determine which Champions best fill the roles of Ranged AD (auto-attack damage) Carry and Champions that support AD Carries in farming through the laning phase. ADCs place higher on the list the more kill potential or farming potential they have early and late in games. Supports place higher based on the utility they bring to teams in terms of carry protection, objective control, and finally pick or kill potential. However, slight adjustments are also made based upon how easy/difficult the champion is to play in the current meta.

Champions not listed will be added upon comment request.

Heavyweights: Jinx, Corki, Janna, Blitzcrank, Tristana, Leona, Nami, Caitlyn, Ezreal, Sona, Vayne,

  1. Three things:
    First- have you checked out Zilean’s new kit? Better move him up noob.
    Second- please don’t treat Taric with respect. We want a rework.
    Third- Varus never “works”. Just stop….

    1. Thanks for the comment.

      As of Patch 5.4 Zilean is a potential mid laner (akin to Annie and Vel’Koz as a Support Champion). Low cooldowns, 1.5 second stun, massive zoning with his bombs, etc. His ult has a 60s CD at level 3. I’m waiting to see how his wave clear and mana costs work without a teammate to depend on.

      Varus is an unsafe pick for ADC because he lacks mobility. However, Varus has solid damage potential coupled with hard CC. This sets him apart from other poke ADCs like Ezreal and Caitlyn who compensate with abilities to move themselves rather than stalling opponent’s movement. This is required to setup ganks and make picks in the mid to late game.

      Taric on the other hand is my homie. As my Support montage shows.
