Garen Lol

This patch not much has changed in the top lane. Top lane mains will have to make do with what they’ve been given, which is not a surprise, since the top lane tends to be one of the more ‘boring’ places on Summoner’s Rift. But if you want to carry games and still make an impact, then we’ve got the list of the five best Top Laners for you right here!

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 top-lane.

Do you want to try other positions too? We have the guides for you right here:

Who are the Best Top Laners in LoL Patch 11.4?

Best Top Laners: No. 5 – Camille

Even after some nerfs, Camille is still one of the best champions to play this patch. Sure, she is weaker especially in the early game due to her W cooldown being elongated, but she is still a strong split pushing champion who can win you games with ease when played right. You will need to be able to communicate with your team so they know you won’t be joining the Solo Queue ARAM that usually takes place by mid-game.

Best Top Laners: No. 4 – Darius

Darius Dunkmaster 2

Darius might have fallen off over the last few patches, but he is still strong especially in low elo (Credit: Riot Games)

Bruisers have lost quite a bit of prowess over the last few patches, but Darius seems to still hold himself afloat in the meta. His damage output with his ultimate is what makes him so dominant in the top lane. Being able to pull in his opponents and then smash them to their death is just a satisfying feeling.

Best Top Laners: No. 3 – Garen

Garen 0

Garen will spin you to victory. For DEMACIA!!!! (Credit: Riot Games)

Garen has been broken for quite some time now. He is a simple champion with a lot of power in his kit. His ultimate is one of the most reliable executes which makes him very dangerous once he hits that power spike. Not to mention how reliable his passive is, which lets him restore health every few seconds.

Best Top Laners: No. 2 – Malphite

Shamrock malphite

Gotta love Shamrock Malphite.... but it's not his looks that matter but his strength (Credit: Riot Games)

Malphite is one of the strongest top laners and is especially good against other melee champions. Almost no other melee champion will be able to go toe-to-toe with the giant rock in the laning phase since he can just win lane and from there on win the game.

Malphite is one of the best tanks in the game and if anyone has to go against a fed Malphite with full tank items in the late game they’re going to have a bad time since he just won’t die. He will charge in with his ultimate to start off any team fight and block all the damage from the opposition, without so much as a scratch.

Best Top Laners: No. 1 – Cho'Gath

Shan hai chogath

Cho'Gath will be unkillable in the late game thanks to his growth (Credit: Riot Games)

Over the last few patches, Cho’Gaths main items have all been buffed and bettered, which is why he is still our number one top laner this patch. Thanks to the Force of Nature buff from Patch 11.3 and the Frozen Heart buff have only made him all the better over the last few patches.

The key to a good Cho’Gath game is your laning phase and your creep score. By gobbling up minions, Cho’Gath grows in power and size, gaining extra health. Add in that along with the tank items and Cho’Gath will become a frontliner no one can take down.
