League of Legends Champion Roles – The Ultimate Guide

Sometimes, it can be pretty tricky to tell which role a Champion is supposed to play in League of Legends. Even Riot themselves will have it wrong, especially when they first create a Champion. 

For example, champions like Brand and Lux started with the intention to go Mid before finding themselves better placed as Supports. To Quell the confusion, I’ve put together a definitive list of the Champions and their main roles:

What Role is Jinx?

Jinx is purely a Bot lane Champion. She plays ADC and pretty much nowhere else. I’ve seen a couple of Jinx players take her Mid lane, but I wouldn’t recommend it for most players. Jinx has no escape tools, which means she is very vulnerable to ganks and engages. This vulnerability is only amplified in solo lanes without a Support to peel for her.

What Role is Zeri?

Zeri is one of the newest Champions, so it could be said she hadn’t been figured out completely yet. With that being said, most players are taking her Bot lane as the ADC or to the Mid lane. Unlike Jinx, Zeri has self-peel and can escape engages and ganks quite easily. This means she can do quite well in solo lanes.

What Role is Renata Glasc?

Renata Glasc is the newest Champion at the time of this article. Like Zeri, players haven’t had time to min-max her yet. Currently, Renata Glasc is mostly used as a Support Champion. Her W is one of the strongest Support abilities in the game. It’s practically a free Zilean ultimate on Steroids. 

What Role is Viego?

Viego is a Jungler plain and simple. His E is great for ganks and only really useful for navigating around the Jungle. He can head to the Top or Mid lane if the player is good, but for the most part, he will stick in the Jungle. 

What Role is Akshan?

Akshan is ranged, so many players will automatically assume he is an ADC. However, his range isn’t very high, and his kit is actually better suited for the Mid lane. He can also head Top, but he will be much more vulnerable playing against tanky bruisers. Going Top will also leave his team without a tank or bruiser of its own, which can be a major disadvantage.

What Role is Vex?

Vex is a Mid laner, for the most part. Like most Mid laners, though, she can also be played as a Support. She has an AOE fear and quite a bit of damage. She will have damage whether she goes Mid or Support, similar to Champions like Lux, Brand, and Xerath.  

What Role is Ekko?

Ekko can be quite confusing for players that haven’t played him or played against him. Ekko is a Jungler first and foremost, but he can also be played Mid or Top. Ekko is an assassin, but if he heads Top, he’ll want to build some extra health. No matter where you play Ekko, you’ll probably want to take things easy for a few levels until you have some items.
