The constant changes in League of Legends make the game quite confusing at times. The addition of champions each year makes the oversight of 150 champs almost impossible. Thankfully, Riot introduced the weekly free champion rotation wherein players are able to test out the varying champions.
Riot Games loans out around 10% of playable champions for free each week. This keeps League of Legends interesting and gives players the opportunity to experiment. Once you hit level 11, you gain access to the free champion rotation. The free champion rotation switches up every single Tuesday, so be prepared to try some new stuff on Summoner's Rift weekly.
Free Champion Rotation: 07 November – 14 December
These are the champions that are part of this week's free champion rotation:
- Jarvan IV
- Miss Fortune
This free champion rotation is special since multiple characters from the hit Netflix series Arcane are also free to play. Heimerdinger, Jayce, Vi, Jinx, Caitlyn and Viktor have made their big-screen debut and for some of these champions, you're even able to get free skins!
Another thing some of you might notice is the increased number of free champions this week. Pyke, Illaoi, Miss Fortune, Yasuo, Ahri, Braum... doesn't that seem suspiciously like Ruined King: A League of Legends Story?
Who is the best top laner in this free champion rotation, you might ask? None other than our main boi Viktor. We understand that traditionally he is known as a mid laner but he's got a 53% win rate in the top lane right now!
If you're looking for a good jungler in this free champion rotation, then set your eyes on Viego. The ruined king has one of the best skirmishers in the game, and his resetting ultimate will get you a pentakill with ease.
As for mid lane picks in this free champion rotation, we can only suggest Viktor once more. This guy has an even higher win rate in the mid lane than in the top! The new items and his popularity thanks to Arcane have made him the most sought-after pick.
For you ADC mains, you've got quite a lot of options. Jinx is probably the best free-to-play ADC right now. If you're looking for someone with more range, then Caitlyn is also open right now. The Arcane ADCs are really strong in the current meta.
Finally, we get to the support role and in this free champion rotation. If you want to be an engage support with some meat to them, then Thresh is going to be your pick. He's extremely fun to play and once you've mastered that Hook-Flay combo... just chefs kiss. CoreJJ watch out we coming for your job.
So, that's it, guys. Try out a few of these unique champions from this champion rotation, and maybe you'll find your new main? Who knows. We'll be back next Tuesday to see who you can try in the next free champion rotation!
