The overall Wild Rift Patch 3.3 cycle is shifting the game’s pacing substantially — with the most recent Wild Rift 3.3a substantially diminishing some rather interesting picks. Here is a Wild Rift Tier List ranking the best and worst champions.

In Wild Rift’s recent overhaul, the game pacing slowed down substantially, allowing players to gain comeback from behind more consistently. This change occurred primarily because of the elimination of tower plating, alongside the implementation of the new Dragon system.

Turret platings used to cover literally every tower in the game. These provided a sizeable chunk of gold upon destruction, snowballing the winning team significantly. But now, the platings disappear a in the at 6:30, and only cover the first tier turrets.

With dragons also gaining more relevance, team fights during the mid-to-late game are now far more important than they were previously. After all, a won team fight results in more objectives. And whoever kills the Elder Dragon pretty much wins the game.

That’s led to a meta shift in terms of who the best champions in Wild Rift are. We’ve got a Wild Rift Tier List for the recent Patch 3.3a showcasing all the picks you should be mastering.

Wild Rift Baron Lane tier list

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

Top pick: Wukong (S tier)

Wukong received a rework in Wild Rift patch 3.3.

The champion was never all that bad, but thanks to the shifts in the game’s pacing alongside his mini rework, Wukong has been dominating the meta in Wild Rift 3.3a. For those unaware, Wukong’s second ability now allows him to jump over walls — increasing the money king’s overall versatile utility.

Wukong’s crowd control ultimate allowed him to be prevalent for quite some time. And since team fights are very crucial in the current state of the game, the pick holds even more power, hence his spot in the Wild Rift tier list.

Noteable Pick: Jayce (S tier)

Jayce has been quite powerful for some time now. However, the developers thought he needed a buff in Patch 3.3a. In their words: “Jayce hasn’t performed that well outside of higher levels of play.”

But Jayce is a very high skill cap champion, made for high levels of play. They increased his To The Skies damage output, which isn’t admittedly isn’t a huge but definitely pushes him even more over the edge for the high elo games.

Wild Rift Mid Lane tier list

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

Top pick: Ahri (S tier)

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

Ahri isn’t just one of the main forces in the current Star Guardian event, she’s one of the most powerful mid lane champions in Wild Rift. Similar to Wukong, 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.

Noteable Pick: Ekko (S tier)

Honestly, this section could easily discuss Jayce another time — but as Jayce was discussed in the previous section, Ekko is receiving the spotlight. The champion dropped in the jungle tier list (A tier to B tier) when transitioning from patch 3.3 to 3.3a, but his viability in the mid lane remains.

Riot claims Ekko mid has been struggling, and provided a tiny buff for his Timewinder mana cost. For high elo, this has definitely not been the case, with many other content creators’ Wild Rift Tier List already having placed him in the S tier before this buff.

Wild Rift Jungle tier list

SKha’Zix, Lee Sin, Shyvana, Wukong, Xin Zhao
ACamille, Evelynn, Fiora, Gragas, Irelia, Jarvan IV, Jayce, Morgana, Nunu, Olaf, Rengar, Vi
BAmumu, Ekko, Diana, Master Yi, Nautilus, Tryndamere, Rammus, Sett
CDr. Mundo, Fizz

Top pick: Shyvana (S tier)

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

Another champion that received a mini rework recently was Shyvana — but unlike Ahri and Wukong, Shyvana’s rework is independent of its parent game. The dragon champion now gains stacks by just farming the jungle, without having to rely solely on dragon take downs.

But since she’s also one of the best champions when it comes to securing dragon, and the meta revolves heavily around securing dragons, Shyvana is one of the strongest junglers in the game. This means she rightfully earns her S tier ranking — if there was an S+ rank, she’d be in there.

Noteable pick: Amumu (B tier)

This champion hasn’t really had a chance to shine in the limelight — and this patch definitely isn’t the time for sad mummy either.

In a meta full of bruiser junglers, Amumu lacks the trading potential to contest the jungle. In addition, items like Black Cleaver received a tiny nerf, but the armor shredding and scaling damage output allow bruisers to shred through immobile tanks like Amumu with ease.

Wild Rift Bot Lane tier list

SJinx, Kai’Sa, Lucian, Lux, Orianna, Ziggs
AAshe, Caitlyn, Corki, Ezreal, Senna, Varus, Vayne, Xayah
BJhin, Morgana, Tristana
CAkshan, Miss Fortune

Top pick: Lucian (S tier)

Lucian is rather dominant in lane while scaling very well.

The gunslinging marksmen has been one of the strongest ADCs in the past couple of patches. His burst damage, consistent damage output, and overall scaling is very well balanced. Thanks to his mobility, Wild Rift Lucian manages threats that run up to him quite well.

Take Kraken Slayer for better burst damage trades in lane, and Conqueror for more scaling AD during team fights. He’s not the easiest champion to master, but once you grow accustomed to his basic attack combos, his damage output increases drastically.

Noteable pick: Miss Fortune (C tier)

Miss Fortune should be called Miss Un-Fortunate in Wild Rift. She hasn’t been meta for quite some time now — pretty much ever since the crit item changes. With attack speed ADCs and castor mages dominating the duo lane, Miss Fortune lacks both the consistent damage output, mobile utility, and wave clear to actively impact the game.

Her poke damage isn’t enough to dominate the laning phase, only effectively annoying the enemy than securing take downs. And her base kit doesn’t allow her to properly handle the bruisers that are dominating the meta, who easily run her down.

Wild Rift Support tier list

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

Top pick: Yuumi

Yuumi is very overpowered as a support in Wild Rift.

It’s unfortunate to see (depending on what theory you subscribe to), but Yuumi is in a very strong position in Wild Rift patch 3.3a. The champion’s damage, healing, and CC are very overbearing to deal with — especially when paired with a competent marksman.

Yuumi’s laning phase is surprisingly powerful, since the kitty can drive its first ability even when she’s not riding another player. And once team fight stages begin, Yuumi is unbearable to play against. Her healing grants her allies insane sustain, and her ultimate ability can easily destroy the entire enemy team.

Noteable Pick: Sona (B tier)

Riot nerfed Sona once again — despite the champion really not being all that powerful. She’s seldom played, so the stats on her win rate were likely skewed from veteran Sona mains.

In lane, Sona’s damage output is lack luster. Since Pyke is rather powerful as well, Sona is often sitting bait when improperly utilized. During team fights, picks like Yuumi and Karma easily overshadow Sona, providing more CC and utility as a whole.
