Who Are the Best Mid Laners in LoL Patch 11.21?

Best Mid Laners in LoL Patch 11.21: No. 5 – Katarina

Katarina is insane in LoL Patch 11.21. She will be able to one-shot anyone who gets in her way. She is a force to be reckoned with, making her one of the best mid laners in LoL Patch 11.21. AP assassins are quite scary, aren’t they?

Best Mid Laners in LoL Patch 11.21: No. 4 – Lux

Lux is back! At least we believe she is going to be one of the best mid laners in LoL Patch 11.21 thanks to her buffs. Her ultimate cooldown is insanely short now, which means you just have to land a snare, press R – in the right direction – and boom! The game is won.

Best Mid Laners in LoL Patch 11.21: No. 3 – Zed

Nothing is more frustrating than being killed by an enemy you can’t see. That’s where Zed comes in. His ultimate is insanely strong and can burst down any champion who dares step a bit out of line. With assassins being so strong in the current meta, you really can’t go wrong with Zed in LoL Patch 11.21.

Best Mid Laners in LoL Patch 11.21: No. 2 – Akshan

Akshan was once one of the worst champions in the game. His initial win rate of 37% seems like a distant memory from ancient times. At least it feels like that. Players finally realized just how to play this overloaded champion, and it seems to be working.

Seriously, if you want to tilt your opponents, then use that to your advantage and dominate the mid lane, then Akshan is your favorite champion in the game. People just haven’t gotten over the whole ‘revive your team’ aspect of this champion yet.

Best Mid Laners in LoL Patch 11.21: No. 1 – Vex

Vex is the unstoppable force in solo queue. She is the brand new shiny toy that everyone wants to try out and never give back. She has a solid ban rate of almost 40%, which just goes to show how dangerous she can be.

She has range, damage and her ultimate can reset. Sounds like every single new League of Legends champion eh? But what makes her so unique is her ability to fear opponents. That is what gets opponents killed, so all you have to do is wait for your fear passive to be back up and boom! Easy kill.
