Wild Rift tier list patch 3.5a: Ranking Best Champions for each role

Wild Rift Tier LstRiot Games

The most recent update to Wild Rift drastically corrected the balance errors in the previous big patch. Here is a full Wild Rift tier list, catered to help players better grasp the meta.

Wild Rift Patch 3.5 brought massive jungle changes, providing transferrable buffs alongside general quality of life upgrades.

As with every Wild Rift Tier List on here, the tiers are ranked average levels of play in a solo queue environment. And within each specific tier in the list, they’re organized alphabetically.

Wild Rift tier list: support

SKarma, Nami, Pyke, Soraka, Thresh,
ABraum, Galio, Gragas, Janna, Leona, Lulu, Lux, Nautilus, Rakan, Senna, Seraphine, Yuumi
BAmumu, Ashe, Sett, Sona, Shen
CBlitzcrank, Brand

Although the support items have stabilized substantially, the support role is still one of the most powerful roles in the game. The roam and team fight potential of supporters in Wild Rift is pretty unprecedented, easily taking over the tides of the game.

Speaking of tides, the top support pick for Wild Rift 3.5a is still Nami.

Top Pick: Nami (S Tier)

Nami is in a phenomenal state in Wild Rift. Her range, healing, and crowd control were very strong before the support item implementation. But now that Nami gains even more gold, thanks to Spectral Sickle, she’s able to scale even faster into the game.

She synergizes wonderfully with so many of the new changes introduced in the bigger 3.4 patch – and since they haven’t touched her kit at all, she remains ever powerful in patch 3.5a.

With a strong early game and incredibly impactful late game, Nami takes over games with no weak phase in her progression. Though she wasn’t in the most recent patch, expect some nerfs in the near future targetting her kit or the items which support her play style.

Nami’s impact in game is very strong in Wild Rift Patch 3.4.

Noteable Pick: Karma (S tier)

Karma received some rather substantial nerfs to her kit in Patch 3.4a, which moved her from the best support pick of the patch to one of the best. She wasn’t further tampered with in Patch 3.5a. Therefore, she’s still viable but is no longer the undeniable best support in the game.

By providing damage, movement speed, shielding, and CC, Karma facilitates team fights very effectively.

Wild Rift tier list: bot lane

SCaitlyn, Ezreal, Lucian, Tristana, Varus
ACorki, Jinx, Kai’Sa, Orianna, Samira, Vayne, Xayah, Ziggs
BAshe, Jhin, Morgana
CAkshan, Miss Fortune, Senna

The ADC role is in a powerful state, and holds great precedence in the current meta. This is largely due to two factors: the importance of elemental dragons, and the strength of supports.

Since supports are so strong, ADCs have become more important as well. After all, supports help their carries out, and the carries deal the damage necessary to take over the game.

Top Pick: Caitlyn (S tier)

Caitlyn is a bit of an interesting case where she’s not necessary broken in the hands of every player. Instead, she’s a high skill cap champion which excels when utilized in tandem with a skilled support.

This is because Caitlyn has great follow up potential with her traps and skill shots. And considering how powerful supports are in the game in the current Wild Rift patch 3.5a, Caitlyn’s prevalence in the meta rises as well.

Notable Pick: Tristana (S tier)

The yordle rocketeer is rising up in the tier list hierarchy. Tristana hasn’t necessary been weak for a while, but more players are beginning to understand the strengths she provides.

Though her initial laning phase lacks priority, Tristana more than makes up for it with her mid to late game hyper carry potential. Not only does she have great burst damage, her ever increasing range and insane attack speed allow her to deal consistent damage over time.

Especially in a solo queue environment, Tristana excels in all in engages. If the player maneuvering the champion understands what they’re doing, a jump in almost always spells out death for the enemy.

Wild Rift tier list: baron lane

SAatrox, Camille, Fiora, Gwen, Gragas, Renekton, Riven, Sett, Wukong, Yone
AAkali, Darius, Garen, Jarven, Jax, Jayce, Irelia, Lucian, Nasus, Olaf, Shen, Singed, Teemo, Tryndamere,
BDr. Mundo, Kennen, Pantheon, Malphite, Yasuo,

Since the bot lane meta is incredibly powerful, especially with the introduction of Elemental Drakes alongside Elder Dragon, the Baron lane is in a bit of a weak state in Wild Rift.

Baron Lane is very far from bot lane, thereby making it the most isolated from the main early game significance.

Top Pick: Wukong

Wukong received yet another buff to his kit, helping push him into bordering overpowered territories. He’s capable of cleaning up team fights, and the monkey king’s trading potential in lane isn’t to be taken lightly.

If he plays from ahead, Wukong snowballs the game phenomenally well. His crowd control, utility, and damage are all top tier at the moment, making him easily one the best Baron lane champions in Wild Rift patch 3.5a.

Notable Pick: Gwen (S Tier)

Now that players are growing more and more accustomed to Gwen, she’s displaying her power in Wild Rift. Gwen’s kit and damage, when properly utilized, easily make her an S-tier pick. Her invulernability alongside area of effect abilities allow her to fight off big mobs of enemy and still manage to come out on top.

Wild Rift tier list: mid lane

SAhri, Diana, Irelia, Jayce, Karma, Kassadin, Singed, Vex, Yasuo, Yone, Zed
AAkali, Akshan, Fizz, Galio, Gragas, Katarina, Morgana, Lucian, Orianna, Pantheon, Twisted Fate, Veigar, Ziggs
BAnnie, Brand, Graves, Lux
CAurelion Sol, Kayle, Seraphine

Mid Lane is a pretty strong role in Wild Rift Patch 3.5a since they can freely roam the map. When jungle needs help, mid lane can easily rotate and support. They can also gank bot lane over and over – which allows them to snowball a lead and therefore win the game.

Top pick: Ahri (S tier)

Wild Rift Tier ListRiot Games
Ahri now gains extra dashes upon takedowns in Wild Rift, following on from a similar rework on League PC.

Ahri received a rework that mirrors that of League of Legend PC‘s. In essence, her ultimate now gains another cast upon takedown — a very useful tool during team fights.

Although her 1v1 trading potential decreased ever so slightly, the amount of utility she gained for team fights far outweighs the damage nerf on her charm. An extra dash allows her to snowball team fights. And as previously mentioned, team fights pretty much determine the game in the current meta.

Notable Pick: Kassadin (S tier)

Kassadin is easily one of the strongest mid laners in the game right now. Despite being nerfed a number of times, the champion becomes far too strong as the game goes on.

His biggest weakness is his slow scaling — but get past that, and he absolutely dominates team fights. If fighting any squishy enemies, Kassadin bursts them down with ease, and then proceeds to just teleport out.

He’s not the easiest champion to play, but when handled well, becomes very overbearing.

Wild Rift Jungle tier list

SGragas, Kayn, Kha’Zix, Lee Sin, Shyvana, Xin Zhao
ACamille, Evelyn, Fiora, Gwen, Irelia, Jarvan IV, Jayce, Morgana, Nunu, Olaf, Rengar, Vi, Wukong
BAmumu, Ekko, Diana, Jax, Master Yi, Nautilus, Tryndamere, Rammus, Sett
CDr. Mundo, Fizz

Jungle is still a very strong role, especially in light of the big jungle changes implemented in the big Wild Rift patch 3.5. They directly play a role in the tides of the game.

Dragons are very important in Wild Rift Patch 3.5, and since supports are pretty strong right now, junglers often play towards the duo side to gain control of dragon. Therefore, champions such as Shyvana and Lee Sin are powerful, since they contest these objectives rather well.

Top pick: Shyvana (S tier)

Wild Rift Tier ListRiot Games
Shyvana grows into a monster by just farming the jungle in Wild Rift.

Shyvana scales great into the game, while standing as one of the strongest champions when it comes to taking down Elemental Dragons. She’s very capable at securing dragon, and the meta revolves heavily around securing dragons. This makes Shyvana one of the strongest junglers in the game, especially since her engage and damage is rather strong.

Notable pick: Lee Sin (S tier)

Lee Sin’s control over early game objectives makes him very strong.

Lee Sin is overbearing in the high elo of play. Although he’s definitely one of those champions with a high skill cap, with amateurs not making good use of him, his early game impact is unprecedented.

In a meta full of bruiser junglers, Lee Sin fits perfectly, contesting important jungle objectives like dragon and offering great execution damage on low health targets.
