Champions in League of Legends: Wild Rift have their unique sets of abilities as well as weaknesses. With some champions, the strengths far outweigh the weaknesses, allowing them to carry the team to victory, even with little help. There are also champions that have greater weaknesses than strengths. But with more than 80 champions in the game so far, how will you know which ones you should pick for your team? That’s where our Wild Rift tier list comes in handy.
In this tier list, we’ll rank the best champions for each class — assassin, fighter, marksman, mage, tank, and support. We’ll also show you ways you can build the best team in LoL Wild Rift.
Wild Rift releases a new patch once every few months, and with each new patch comes new champions and changes, thus affecting the ranking. So, check back on our page when there’s a new patch for an updated tier list.

Before we dive into our actual LoL Wild Rift tier list, let’s first have a look at the tier system we’ll be using. SS sits at the very top of the ranking system, followed by S, A, B, and then C. We explain what each tier means below:
Champions in the SS tier are the best of the best. They’re incredibly versatile and strong. Plus, very rarely can other champions counter them. You can place them in just about any role and still be able to carry your team to victory.
These champions are very powerful as well, although, of course, not as powerful as those in the SS tier. You can rely on them to win games, thanks to their high skill ceiling. However, they don’t deal as much damage as SS-tier champions.
A-tier champions are still strong and effective — but just not in every situation. Also, unlike SS- and S-tier champions, A-tier champions don’t have what it takes to carry a game on their own. That’s because they might not be able to provide you with the crowd control and damage potential that you need.
B-tier champions are viable and effective in the right situation. You can still place them in certain team compositions and use them as a jungle or support early in the game. However, they don’t have as much impact as champions in the above tiers.
You won’t get as much use out of C-tier champions, which isn’t to say that they’re completely useless. They’re still good for certain team comps, just like B-tier champions. However, if you can, try to pick champions in the higher tiers when building your team.
Let’s first rank the assassins in LoL Wild Rift. An assassin’s main goal is to deal as much damage to an enemy as possible, and they do so within close range. However, they’re not very good at defending themselves or the rest of the team.
Here’s our LoL Wild Rift tier list for the best assassins in the game:
|SS||Fiora, Kai’Sa, Khai’Zix, Lee Sin|
|S||Ahri, Evelynn, Irelia, Katarina, Riven, Zed|
|A||Akali, Akshan, Pantheon, Rengar, Vayne, Yasuo|
Fiora, Kai’Sa, Khai’Zix, and Lee Sin all populate the top tier for their impact, high skill ceiling, and their ability to synergize with just about any team member. They’re also highly mobile, allowing them to easily attack enemies within close range and run off quickly before the opposing side could counter. Some of these assassins (particularly Kai’Sa and Khai’Zix) have the ability to upgrade their skills, making them extremely deadly in the latter part of the game. Assassins in the lower tiers are also strong in their own right, but they don’t have as much potential to carry a game.
The main goal of fighters (which are also often called “bruisers”) is to deal damage. But unlike assassins, fighters have high defenses, making them great at long-lasting battles. They can sustain a considerable amount of damage before their health becomes affected.
Below is our LoL Wild Rift tier list for fighters:
|SS||Camille, Darius, Fiora, Kayn, Lee Sin, Sett|
|S||Garen, Hecarim, Irelia, Renekton, Wukong, Xin, Zhao|
|A||Gragas, Jax, Olaf, Pantheon, Yasuo|
|B||Dr. Mundo, Graves, Jarvan IV, Master Yi, Tryndamere, Vi|
Once again, Fiora and Lee Sin find themselves in the top tier of another class of champions. As well as being strong assassins, these two are also great fighters. That’s because they both have high mobility and can deal high physical damage. Fiora is incredible at one-on-one duels, while Lee Sin is perfect for taking down monsters and champions in the jungles. Camille, Darius, Kayn, and Sett have high mobility as well, and they’re incredible at inflicting damage to multiple opponents. Some of these fighter champions, like Darius, become stronger the longer you’re in a battle with them.
Fighters in the lower tiers are also viable picks. However, they don’t possess the same mobility that SS-tier fighters have. Also, some of them (like Vi) won’t survive clashes without follow-up from the team.
Marksmen are also designed to attack foes, but instead of doing it within close range (like assassins and fighters), they inflict damage from afar. Because of this, marksmen aren’t really reliable when it comes to taking out assassins, which are way too agile for them to target. However, they are good at tearing down towers, enemy bases, and other objectives on the map.
In our Wild Rift tier list, we rank marksmen as follows:
|S||Corki, Ezreal, Varus, Xayah|
|A||Caitlyn, Lucian, Vayne|
|B||Draven, Jinx, Tristana|
|C||Jhin, Miss Fortune, Senna|
As well as being a great assassin, Kai’Sa is arguably the best marksman you can have in LoL Wild Rift. She has all the things you need in a marksman or ADC. With great positioning and kiting skills plus the ability to enhance their build and maximize their resources, Corki, Ezreal, Varus, and Xayah are awesome marksmen, too. All of these S-tier assassins have a good mix of ability power and attack damage, making it hard for enemies to itemize against them. Some of them, like Corki, can deal critical strike damage as well.
If you don’t have any of the marksmen in the higher tiers yet, A-, B-, and C-tier marksmen will help you out a lot, too. However, they can be a bit harder to position. Some of them also aren’t built for 1v1 ADC duels.
If you’re looking for champions that wield magic in LoL Wild Rift, then add mages to your team. Mages inflict magic damage to enemies with tricks and spells, and they normally do so from a distance. There are three different types of mages in the game. The first are Artillery mages, who attack from the longest possible range. The second are Battle mages, who are great when it comes to skirmishes. Lastly, there are Burst mages, who single out weak or unsupported enemies and send an explosive barrage of damage their way.
Here’s our Wild Rift tier list for mages:
|S||Ahri, Diana, Katarina, Twisted Fate|
|A||Akali, Annie, Brand, Orianna, Veigar|
|B||Aurelion Sol, Seraphine|
Ziggs and Kassadin are the best of the best when it comes to mages in Wild Rift. Ziggs, for one, is incredible at controlling a team fight, allowing him to burst down opponents easily. His basic abilities are enough to kill off enemies one by one or at least significantly reduce their HP. But with Mega Inferno Bomb, his ultimate ability, he can kill off an entire enemy from a safe distance.
Kassadin’s strength, on the other hand, lies in fighting AP enemies with Void Stone, his passive ability. Plus, because of his high mobility and incredible waveclear, he can perform split-pushing spectacularly well. He can also get into and easily escape team fights, thanks to his ultimate ability — Riftwalker.
If you don’t have access to Kassadin or Ziggs yet, mid-tier champions are fine, too. However, you’ll want to prioritize the ones in the higher tiers, of course.
The main role of tank champions in Wild Rift is to shield the rest of the team by absorbing damage dealt by enemies. There are two types of tanks in the game: vanguards (whose focus is offense) and wardens (whose focus is defense). When battles begin, they’re usually at the front line, making it possible for fragile teammates to deal damage without worrying about being attacked.
Here are the tanks that made it to our Wild Rift tier list:
|S||Braum, Garen, Malphite, Rakan|
|A||Alistar, Galio, Gragas, Leona|
|B||Dr. Mundo, Jarvan IV, Rammus|
|C||Amumu, Blitzcrank, Nasus|
Although there aren’t any tanks who have what it takes to be SS-tier champions (in our opinion), you can rely on S-tier tanks to effectively protect your team from enemy attacks. The heroes in this tier have high armors and can negate even the strongest of ultimates, like Graves’ Collateral Damage and Jhin’s Curtain Call. Some, like Garen, are easy to play as well, making them great for beginners.
Those in the mid-tiers are also viable tanks, but they either don’t have as much armor or are lacking in damage output, utility, or mobility. Having C-tier tanks in your team can still work if you’re still starting. However, try to avoid them as much as possible since they usually rely heavily on buffs and can be easily taken down through crowd control or kiting.
It may not seem like it, but supports are arguably the most important champions in Wild Rift. They don’t deal magic damage as mages do, nor do they have the ability for long-range attacks like marksmen. However, supports heal, buff, and protect allies on the battlefield and make sure that the rest of the team is strong enough to fight. Thus, a team wouldn’t really function or last an entire battle without them.
For support champions, here’s our Wild Rift tier list:
|S||Bard, Braum, Janna, Pyke|
|A||Alistar, Brand, Leona, Rakan, Senna, Thresh|
|B||Galio, Lux, Seraphine, Sona, Soraka|
Lulu and Nami are the best supports you can have on your team. Lulu is incredibly versatile, so even if you have her as a full support, she can still deal adequate damage output throughout an entire game. Plus, as a support, her kit is loaded, with three crowd controls and two abilities (Whimsy and Help Pix!) being useful on both foes and teammates. You also have Nami, whose kit is everything you’ll need in your team. She’s got heal, damage, knock-up, and slow, making her a great all-around support. She also has high mobility and can influence her team to become more aggressive players.
Those in the mid-tiers are also reliable supports, providing healing, utility, and damage reduction when you need them to. As for Blitzcrank, he also has incredible strengths, but we advise against using him if you aren’t that experienced in Wild Rift yet.
Each champion in Wild Rift has their own strengths and weaknesses, which you should take into consideration anytime you’re building your team in the game. That said, there is no one right way to build the best team in Wild Rift. In fact, there are a number of different ways you can compose your team to efficiently crush your opponents. In this section, we tackle three of the best team compositions in LoL Wild Rift.
Pick compositions rely quite a lot on dealing burst damage, which is why they often have multiple mages or assassins. Teams like this are designed to target lone rangers (usually ones that are out of position) and quickly dispose of them with burst damage. With every enemy you defeat, it becomes easier to tear down the map’s neutral objectives, allowing your team to win quickly.
If you’re more comfortable with poking enemies and attacking from a distance, then go for a Siege composition. This type of team comp allows you to slow down the enemy and significantly reduce their health by ceaselessly inflicting poke damage. With this strategy, your enemies will lose momentum since they’ll need to constantly retreat to restore their health. If not, they can keep attacking and risk a quick death because of their massive health disadvantage.
Building a team based on the Protect the Carry composition means relying heavily on one ADC or APC, on which you spend all of your resources. Then, you fill the rest of the team with utility champions, like tanks. This is obviously a very risky team comp, but if your hyper-carry does well, the opposing team will find it nearly impossible to take your team down. The tanks in your team will be able to set up your ADC or APC’s attacks, allowing you to easily kill off every one of your enemies. And since a hyper-carry becomes more powerful and destructive with time, your enemies will have an even harder time dealing significant damage to your team.
However, you really will have to look out for your carry, especially in the early stages of the game since they won’t be as powerful then. If they die, your team won’t stand a chance against the enemy.
The strongest ADC (attack damage carry or marksman) in Lol Wild Rift would have to be Kai’Sa. She’s been a reliable competitive player since she first landed in League of Legends. And despite not having all the items she has in the traditional game, she shows even more skill and versatility in Wild Rift. For one, she has the ability to deal bonus magic damage. She can also make her own skills even more powerful with the right build, making her incredibly adaptable and versatile. Plus, she’s great at skirmishes and can easily take down seemingly indestructible tanks like Braum. Needless to say, it will take a lot of coordination from the enemy side to take out Kai’Sa during battle.
As for the best jungler in Wild Rift, it would have to be Lee Sin. Lee Sin is extremely agile, allowing him to jump over a number of walls and make big, flashy plays. With his flexible build and ability to deal high damage, he can take out nearly any jungler or champion, especially early in the game. He also has a wide range of abilities namely: Flurry, Sonic Wave/Resonating Strike, Safeguard, Iron Will, Tempest/Cripple, and Dragon’s Rage. Plus, he’s great at ganking and has the potential to snowball the game so that the opposing team won’t have a chance at a comeback.
The only issue with Lee Sin, though, is that he tends to falter slightly when you get to the late stages of the game. But other than that, he’s an absolute powerhouse if you take advantage of his abilities early in the game.
Jhin and Nami are arguably the best duo in Wild Rift, especially if you use them for the Dragon Lane. Although Jhin’s movement speed can be quite slow, Nami makes up for it with her passive skill, Surging Tides. Plus, with Tidecaller’s Blessing, Nami can empower Jhin’s basic attacks, enabling him to slow the target and deal bonus magic damage.
As a duo, Jhin and Nami are also incredible at crowd control, thanks to Nami’s bubble and Jhin’s Deadly Flourish, which can root the opposing team. On top of that, you can take advantage of Nami’s second ability, Ebb and Flow, to attack enemies from a safe distance, which then allows Jhin to use his fourth basic attack to deal critical damage. Lastly, they can use their respective ultimate abilities, Curtain Call and Tidal Wave, to stomp lanes. That way, opponents won’t be able to escape the attacks and crowd control effects that you hurl at them.
With more than 80 champions in the current Wild Rift lineup, it can be hard to pick which heroes to include in your team when going into matches. Hopefully, our Wild Rift tier list has made the decision-making process a lot easier for you. Keep in mind, though, that you don’t need SS-tier champions to take down the opposing side; mid-tier champions are strong and reliable as well. Just make sure to build an effective team with each champion’s strengths and weaknesses in mind, and you’ll be good to go!
