However, the gimmicks are often labeled as features, so the specific champion becomes associated with them.

Irelia – More Dashes Than Ahri

Best Champion to buy for 4800 BE Irelia in League of LegendsIrelia is one of the most hated toplaners in the game, and for a good reason. Her kit revolves around extreme amounts of mobility and reliance on good mechanics to completely out-maneuver her opponent in a way that feels entirely unfair to said opponent. This makes her highly rewarding to learn, at least in lane.

Why in lane? Well, because to compensate for the fact that Irelia basically controls the laning phase and cannot practically lose into any bruiser matchup unless the enemy IS better than her, Riot took away a lot of her ability to effectively team fight. This makes her very snowbally and excellent for one tricking in elos where you know you can outperform your enemy.

Some may say that Irelia is just flat-out broken and will never be in a healthy state. To some extent, they might be right. Irelia is designed to be a bully, and a good one at that. Her ability to (potentially) infinitely dash on minions is the best part of Yasuo combined with the ability to heal off of every dash, which makes her very hard to deal with.

So if you think you want to put in the time to learn how Irelia functions to play her and abuse the living hell out of enemy toplaners, then consider taking her for a ride.
She is extremely fun to play with, and winning over her is one of the most satisfying feelings ever. This calls Irelia for the 5th spot on our list.

Zed – Just Turn Shadows Off

Best Champion to buy for 4800 BE Zed in League of LegendsJokes aside, Zed is one of the textbook assassins in League of legends. He is known for his consistency in meeting halfway between skill and fun; he does very little damage if his combo does not land, and he might oneshot his enemy if he manages to land a full combo.

Zed has one of the fairest kits in his class of champions. His entire combo and ultimate are nulled void if the enemy buys and uses a Zhonya’s hourglass. Though, this mechanic is highly debatable on its own, since an item should not have to make up for a champion’s shortcomings.

Anyways, Zed is very rewarding to learn. Landing a full combo from a mile away on 3 people at the same time and doing massive damage is a feeling you will rarely get in League without being very fed. But for Zed, being even or a little ahead only means killing his opponent a little slower if he lands his combo.

This makes Zed the perfect choice for anyone looking for a mid-lane assassin who can singlehandedly wipe out multiple members of the enemy team without having 4 items at 20 minutes. Zed’s ability to live up to that fantasy is why he achieves the number 4th spot on the list.

Diana – Goth Girl

Best Champion to buy for 4800 BE Diana in League of LegendsDiana has seen a lot of different roles in the meta in the last few years, but none of them were as overplayed as the current role she plays in being the ultrafast farming jungler who can set up 5 man dives and a multitude of other risky plays without being too much at risk because of her bruiser/assassin nature.

This nature was so prominent in the last few months that Fnatic pro player Razork hit rank one with over 1500 League Points (LP) spam playing Diana day and night. Quite simply, Diana is the jungler you go to when every other member of your team is unfit to carry. She is an excellent duelist, an assassin, and a pseudo bruiser and sometimes she even builds Sunfire Cape, so some might go so far as to call her a damage-dealing tank.

Diana’s ultimate makes it very hard for enemies to escape once she is on them with the (up to 3) dashes she gets on her E. It is unimaginably hard to avoid or ignore her, so you have to deal with her, but then you realize she does so much damage in so little time that by the time you hit her once she has already killed you.

This is what makes Diana one of the strongest and most oppressive junglers in the game, and it’s also what makes her extremely fun to play. If that is something you dig in a champion, give her a try. Her multipurpose kit which happens to be very good at assassinations as well as tanking makes her capable of being placed 3rd on the list.

Yasuo – The Last Airbender

Best Champion to buy for 4800 BE Yasuo in League of LegendsYasuo is known for many things; the toxicity of the player base that plays him, his popularity, his absolute cancer wind wall, and so on. All of these opinions lead to one reason though, and that is the fact that Yasuo is a very fun champion to learn and play and probably the most hated one to play against. Now the hate goes down the higher in Elo you go, but most of League’s players are in Elos lower than platinum, so the point still stands.

What makes Yasuo so strong is purely his mobility, his Damage Per Second (DPS), and his damn wind wall. Yasuo is one of 2 champions in League that function off of a mechanic where every Critical strike chance they obtain is multiplied by 2.5. So unlike ADCs who need a whole 5 items to get a 100% crit chance, Yasuo only needs 2.

This makes insane power spikes possible at both 1 and 2 items since the item path is almost always Immortal Shieldbow, followed by Infinity Edge. This enables him to duel most laners with ease. The ones he can’t (mostly long-ranged mages) are slapped with a wind wall to their faces, through which most of their abilities cannot pass for a whole 4 seconds.

It is due to this snowball-heavy and oppressive nature that he is fun for the one playing him and not so much for the one facing him. That doesn’t mean he is easy though. Yasuo does require you to put a lot of time down to learn how to use his kiting the best way possible.
However, it does make it possible for him to gain the 2nd spot on the list.

Riven – Riot’s Favourite

Best Champion to buy for  4800 BE Riven in League of LegendsRiven is known for being “Riot’s Favourite” when it comes to balancing and being nerfed because it does seem like all she gets are huge buffs and occasional minor nerfs. Consequently, Riven is best known for her ability to “outplay” her opponent which, in this case, is just a fancy word for mashing buttons until you win.

Don’t get me wrong, Riven is a mechanically hard champion to master. But that does not take away the reality that once you do master her, there is very little any other champion can do against her. Renekton used to counter her, but he is seldom picked anymore due to him being on the other side of Riot’s favoritism; he was nerfed into the ground.

That being said, Riven is an outstanding champion due to her highly versatile and mobile kit which encourages you to find new ways to one-shot your opponent. She is very dominant in her playstyle and can punish mistakes in the coldest, most ruthless way possible. Simply put, Riven makes you feel like Thanos in the toplane.

If you feel like you want to enjoy this sort of power in the toplane, take out the time to understand and learn every combo that Riven has to offer. Until Riot truly puts a nail in her coffin as they do to any other overpowered champion, Riven will stay deserving of the 1st place on this list.

Final Thoughts

This is why we believe we have come up with a top 5 that is as unbiased as it can be so that most people look at this find it helpful rather than be angry that we called their favorite champion bad. That being said, not everyone will like this list, and that’s perfectly fine.
