LoL Patch 11.9 saw many changes to bruiser and tank items, but not too many changes for the mid-lane. A few champion updates, but nothing dramatic. Who is the top mid-laner though, and who will we be seeing Perkz and ShowMaker play at MSI?
In this LoL tier list, we'll show you the best champions for each lane. We especially focus on win rate and the carry potential because you often have to carry your teammates in any given game. Today, we will look at the mid-lane.
You're not a Mid Laner? Don't worry:
Best Mid Laners in LoL Patch 11.9: No. 5 – Katarina
With the new Hextech Rocketbelt from LoL Patch 11.8 as well as her usual Nashor’s Tooth rush, Katarina is unstoppable in LoL Patch 11.9. She was already broken before, but with no nerfs in sight she has climbed her way to the top of the mid-lane leaderboard. Just take note her level 1 is horrendous so stay safe early!

Best Mid Laners in LoL Patch 11.9: No. 4 – Talon
Talon has been top tier since his buffs a few patches ago, but more and more items that you can build on him have also been getting buffed which just means he has become an assassin monster in the mid-lane. The Prowler’s Claw active and lethality make him a huge threat in LoL Patch 11.9, so beware of Talon!

Best Mid Laners in LoL Patch 11.9: No. 3 – Nocturne
Nocturne is slowly climbing the ranks and becoming one of the most feared mid laners in LoL Patch 11.9. The Stridebreaker buff a while ago really helped him out and now in LoL Patch 11.9 Wit’s End and Death’s Dance are getting buffed, which will only make him all the more annoying to play against. Playing against Nocturne is going to make anyone paranoid.
Best Mid Laners in LoL Patch 11.9: No. 2 – Qiyana
Qiyana is the best AD Assassin in the game. Ever since her W and ultimate buffs in LoL Patch 11.5 she has been on a rampage in the mid lane and nobody is safe from her. She is able to carry any team to victory.

Once Qiyana hits level 3, she is able to take over any game all on her own. She has insane burst damage, and she can get two Q’s off in the blink of an eye. And let’s not forget about her game-changing ultimate, which can win just about any teamfight, especially if they’re around Baron or Elder.
Best Mid Laners in LoL Patch 11.9: No. 1 – Vladimir
So yes, Vladimir got a slight nerf in LoL Patch 11.9, but that means nothing as he is undeniably insane in this patch. The magic penetration from the Rocket Belt changes in LoL Patch 11.8 is exactly what this battle mage needed, and thus, he’s made it to the top of the mid-lane tier in LoL Patch 11.9.
He is able to win any laning phase, even with the cooldown increase in his Q. He is able to destroy his lane opponent and go off from there on out. He will be able to take over games and in the later stages he. Just. Won’t. Die.
