League of Legends: Know your enemy

If you want to easily win almost every game in League of Legends, then you must know current meta Champions and their item buildes, to know how to counter them. Or you just can pick these champions because they have biggest winrate at the moment.

Top Winrate Champions

According to a recent survey, the most played and popular champions in League of Legends are Ashe, Caitlyn, Ezreal, Leona and Yasuo. As some are susceptible of taking more than one role, let’s take a look at their diverse builds created in order to fit the role you chose for them.

Ashe

Ashe

To begin with, Ashe has one single role – AD Carry. As a marksman, she always takes the bottom lane being accompanied by a support. The most useful Summoner Spells for Ashe are Heal and Flash. They are a must have in case the ADC is ganked, but at the same time, it helps the other allies that are close to you in order to stay alive in lane. As you begin the match, the starting items are: Doran’s Blade, Total Biscuit of Rejuvenation and the Warding Totem. Try to farm as much as possible and keep yourself alive! – this piece of advice is available when you are playing any champion, not only Ashe. The next items you should buy are standard: Berserker’s Greaves, Infinity Edge, Runaan’s Hurricane and Essence Reaver. Furthermore, you can choose one between Mortal Reminder and Lord Dominik’s Regards and one between. Depending on how to match evolves, if it is needed, you can replace The Bloodthirster, Mercurial Scimitar and Blade of the Ruined King with a defensive item such as Guardian Angel, Sterak’s Gage, Banshee’s Veil or Maw of Malmortius.

Caitlyn

Just like Ashe, Caitlyn is an ADC, so the only lane she goes to is the bottom one. I recommend using Heal and Flash as Summoner Spells and the starting items should be Doran’s Blade and Health Potion. Also, don’t forget the Warding Totem. The most important items Caitlyn should build are Boots of Speed, Infinity Edge and Runaan’s Hurricane. The ideal build looks like this: Berserker’s Greaves, Infinity Edge, Lord Dominik’s Regards, Runaan’s Hurricane, Statikk Shiv and Mercurial Scimitar. In case they lack CC, then you may replace Mercurial Scimitar with The Bloodthirster. At level 9, always upgrade the Trinket in Seer Stone and before an important teamfight use Elixir of Wrath for +30 Attack Damage and Bloodlust for 3 minutes. In case you cannot survive the battles buy Guardian Angel and if your enemy team got many tanks, then Blade of the Ruined King is the one for you.

Leona

Leona

The next champion we’re talking about is one of my favorites supports, Leona. As Summoner Spells, Ignite and Flash are the ones who works best on her. At the beginning of the match you should buy Relic Shield, Health Potion and Warding Totem (Trinket). The basic items you should buy every game when playing Leona are Sightstone, Boots of Mobility, Relic Shield, Oracle Alteration and Dead Man’s Plate. Other items you can build, if needed, depending on the match are Warmog’s Armor, Randuin’s Omen, Locket of the Iron Solari, Mikael’s Crucible, Face of the Mountain, Righteous Glory or Frozen Heart. Very important, don’t forget to switch from Warding Totem to Sweeping Lens when you buy Sightstone, and when you reach level 9, switch from Sweeping Lens to Oracle Alteration.
