Which Top Laners Are Strong in LoL Patch 11.2?

5. Cho’Gath (Win Rate: 54.4%)

Cho’Gath is tanky and can take quite a bit of damage while also throwing out his cc abilities left and right. Being able to pick up Frostfire Gauntlet 400 gold sooner this patch means that Cho’Gath just hits his power spike all the earlier. His passive lets him heal up whenever he kills an enemy, minions included, which gives him great sustain in lane as well.

4. Garen (Win Rate: 52.9%)

Garen thrives off the extra ability haste which Stridebreaker now offers. The added ability haste will give Garen the ability to shield, spin and strike more often which makes him a nuisance to lane against. His kit is also easy to use so anyone can pick him up and win some games this patch.

3. Malphite (Win Rate: 51.4%)

Malphite has fallen off the priority list just a bit this patch, but he is still a solid pick, especially against bruisers which are still very popular in the current meta. Bramble vest is a great item when playing against top laners with healing, such as Fiora or Renekton. It keeps Malphite alive as he wins trades left and right.

2. Pantheon (Win Rate: 51.9%)

Pantheon can bully any champion in the laning phase. Why? Well, because of his point-and-click stun which gives him immense power over enemy laners. Not to mention how tanky he becomes even with just Plated Steelcaps. It makes him a nuisance to lane against.

He also has some immense versatility in his build. Playing against a squishy opponent? Build Eclipse for that extra burst damage. Playing against a tank? Goredrinker has got your back. Overall, Pantheon is one of the best laning champs in the game thanks to his poking power with Q and his built-in tankiness which keeps him alive during trades.

1. Camille (Win Rate: 50.8%)

Camille has been a key pick, especially in high elo but her power has trickled into other elos as well. She isn’t the easiest champion to play, but once you master her, she is an untouchable laner with shields and sustain in her kit that make her almost impossible to kill.

Her Hookshot keeps her safe at all times and lets Camille go in for aggressive trades. Make sure to know the position of the enemy jungler though before using it aggressively, since it is your key escape tool. Her W slows opponents and heals Camille which is what makes her such a threat in the laning phase.
