Which Champions Are Strongest in the Top Lane in Patch 10.25?

Darius (Win Rate: 50.7%)

Thanks to tank mythics getting nerfed, bruiser champions like Darius have climbed the ladder once again to get a sport in the top list of the top champions. Darius syncs super well with Stridebreaker. The item lets him get on top of enemies easier, thanks to the added movement speed and dash. He has only become better thanks to this item.

4. Nasus (Win Rate: 51.8%)

The key to making Nasus work is his build. Build Divine Sunderer as well as Dead Man’s Plate, before focusing on reducing his cooldowns with ability haste. That way, Nasus is able to fight his lane opponent, as well as chase them down once he’s got them where he wants them. Thanks to this, he can happily farm up to become a late game god.

3. Camille (Win Rate: 51.1%)

Camille is the perfect split pushing champion. She is very safe, with various escape options, as well as sustain within her kit. She is able to out-last just about any champion. Since tank items were nerfed, this opened up the field for more bruiser champions to join the top lane pool and Camille is one of the best in the business.

2. Shen (Win Rate: 51.4%)

Being able to be everywhere on the map, is the key point to Shen and his playstyle. He can aid any of his teammates thanks to his global ultimate, and he also gains a shield thanks to his passive, which can protect him from any incoming damage.

Shen is a very straightforward champion. He likes to farm up and then push side lanes. He can do this, since in the later stages of the game, he can easily join any fight which ensues thanks to his ultimate. Overall, as long as you don’t die early, you’re pretty much going to outfarm your opponent in the top lane.

1. Malphite (Win Rate: 53.9%)

Malphite saw some nerfs in this patch, but that hasn’t slowed the big rock down. He might be a bit less strong, but he is still one of the best top laners in patch 10.25. He is still a beast against any other melee champion and will crush them all.

It’s the late game where he truly shines though. Thanks to his ultimate, he can initiate any fight and come out on top. Sunfire Aegis only helps Malphite become an even better tank, even after the item was nerfed. Overall, Malphite isn’t a champion anyone would want to mess with in this patch.
