Support champions are unique in the sense that they have to rely on other players to finish the job for them. However, at the same time, other players also rely on them to stay alive and actually get kills on the enemy team. Therefore, it’s crucial that the support champion you use, especially in ranked games, has the potential to win your team games.
Now, there are a couple of support champions you can choose from if you want to increase your chances of winning games. However, we’ve compiled a list of the five best ones, and all of them are completely different from one another. The list includes Thresh, Yuumi, Senna, Zilean, and Morgana.
We’ll be going through all the champions included in this list, including their strengths, weaknesses, and what type of players should play them.
First up on this list is Thresh, the Warden of the Underworld. Perhaps the best thing about Thresh is he’s able to make a statement regardless of how close or far he is to the enemy he’s targeting.
Is the enemy too far? Simply chain him up and bring him closer while giving your teammate the opportunity to take them out. Is the enemy too close? Either use your flay ability to send the enemy in whatever direction you want. Want to keep the enemy in a specific place to finish them off? Use your ultimate to block them inside a set zone and then use your lantern to bring your ADC inside with you to finish the job.
All of this, coupled with the fact that Thresh is able to collect the souls of fallen champions and minions in order to passively increase both his armor and ability power speaks volumes about the insane potential he has as a support.
Come on, you know she was going to make an appearance on this list. Yuumi might be universally hated by pretty much every League of Legends player, but it can’t be argued that she’s an extremely effective champion to play as if you want to win ranked matches.
Of course, the first thing is that she’s one of the best support champions to play as for beginners, so that should give you an idea of how easy she is. All you have to do is latch on to your ADC after which you can safely use her extremely annoying (for the enemy) abilities to continuously punish the enemy while keeping your teammate strong and alive.
Perhaps her most useful ability is her ultimate, which throws out seven magical waves toward a set direction. Any enemy champion that gets hit by at least three of these waves will be rooted in place, allowing her teammates to swoop in and finish the job easily.
If you’re someone who wants to deal damage yourself without having to rely on anyone else to do it for you, then Senna is the champion for you. She may be a support, but with her heavy auto attacks and an extremely useful passive that boosts her damage, range, and critical strike chance, she’s more than a threat on her own.
Of course, she isn’t just a support champion for nothing either. Her abilities, in addition to dealing heavy damage to any enemy champions it hits and rooting them in place, can also be used to heal teammates or shield them from damage. At the hands of a player that knows how to play her, Senna is a force to be reckoned with.
An alternative approach would be using her as a support and secondary AD carry hybrid. Use her abilities to support the primary ADC, but when there’s no need to, deal some heavy damage yourself.
Here’s a champion most of you guys probably didn’t see coming, and there’s no surprise as to why. Zilean is easily one of the most underrated champions in League of Legends. However, when in the right hands, he can easily win the team a match.
All of Zilean’s abilities are made for supporting other champions. There’s his time bomb, which attaches to an enemy and explodes either after a while or when the player wants it to. Attach two of these bad boys and you’ll stun the enemy champion when the first bomb explodes. Of course, we can’t forget his ability to either slow down the enemy or speed up a teammate either, which can be really broken if the Zilean is building AP.
Finally, there’s the ability that gave him such a high spot on this list. His ultimate. Use it on either yourself or one of your teammates to instantly revive them if they die while the ability is still in effect. We’re sure you can imagine how useful this might be in a team fight. Bringing the right champion back into a fight can change the tide of the match pretty easily.
First on this list is the binding queen herself, Morgana. Why the binding queen? Well, because that’s what her abilities excel at doing. There’s her Q which, when hit, does high damage to the enemy and also locks the enemy down in place, and there’s her ultimate, which binds a targetted enemy as soon as long as that enemy is close enough to her.
Morgana also has the ability to instantly shield any targetted friendly champion from damage, and her tormented shadows ability, which creates a zone of black cursed energy that deals magic damage to enemies touching it is her most recognizable ability.
By using the right combination of items and being controlled by the correct player, Morgana has the potential to be the best support champion in the game. Although she’s really easy to learn, she’s significantly harder to master.
