Looking for more tier lists? If you're the type to hyper-fixate on only the best characters in your favorite games, it might be worth checking out our comprehensive tier list hub. There you'll find tier lists for games like Genshin Impact, Mobile Legends, Nier Reincarnation, and KonoSuba: Fantastic Days. And if you just like the idea of an innocent slot machine mobile game to wind down with, you can use our Coin Master Free Spins guide to scratch that itch.

Wild Rift Tier List Changes for Patch 2.4c

An off-season hotfix was made on September 22. This fix nerfed Brand, who was closing in on an S+ ranking all on his own. With him now being reeled back a bit, we feel as if he's settling more into the A tier for Support characters. He's strong. He's really strong. But as he power relies on aggression, which a Support player isn't always used to, we feel his unusual difficulty curve means he's just as capable of being a hinderance as a help with less-experienced players try him out purely to see "what's up."

League of Legends: Wild Rift Tier List

League of Legends: Wild Rift separates its characters into five different roles: baron (tank), jungler, mid, support, and ADC. Depending on how they're built throughout a match, many heroes can fit into two or even three of these. As such, we've broken the Wild Rift tier list into sub-sections: a general list showcasing the best of the best, and individual tier lists for each role.

Given unlocking a new champion can be expensive, knowing which few represent the absolute top of the Wild Rift tier list is important. Not only will you learn how best to spend your currency, but you'll also know, in an instant, who to ban, pick, or look out for on the loading screen. Here are the single best Wild Rift champions right now:

CKennen, Nasus

Baron lane picks are typically bulky melee tanks designed to duel against a single opponent early on. In the mid-game, these characters emerge as team-protecting monoliths that can linger on the battlefield, harassing those who attempt to shut down the team's carry. Here's how they rank:

Junglers train up in the grassy knolls between lanes, cycling through the beasts within for EXP and helpful buffs. They typically have high mobility and heavy burst damage, enabling them to peek into lanes and punish or chase an enemy that over-extends. Here's how they rank:

Mid lane champions are often mages with good sustained damage potential and decent range. As the match goes on, they become powerful area damage dealers, slinging spells from a safe distance to whittle down the enemy team enough for the carry to sweep up. Here's how they rank:

Kai'Sa is one of the best ADC champions on the Wild Rift tier list.

ADC or 'Carry' champions are typically ranged attackers that sit on the dragon lane with a support for backup. They deal heavy amounts of physical or magical damage and often rely on powerful basic attacks to do so. Their power comes with the drawback of middling defenses, however. Here's how they rank:

Support champions life in the carry's shadow, propping them up with heals, mana, or the crowd-control spells needed to let them fly. They're enemy number one in most cases whenever the team battles break out, but by keeping themselves alive, they can keep the team going as well. Here's how they rank:

How Do I Unlock New Champions in Wild Rift?

Though you can obviously only play as one hero at any given time, fleshing out your Wild Rift roster can ensure you're always able to pick the right champion for the job. The more you own, the more of the higher Wild Rift tier list champions you'll have to potentially dominate your opponents with. So how do you get more?

Most new Wild Rift champions can be unlocked by taking part in the event that takes place around their release. When Riven and Irelia released, you could choose whichever one you wanted. After completing a few specific in-game tasks and challenges, you unlocked them for good.

For any others, you have two options: using Blue Motes earned through gameplay or with Wild Cores gained through microtransactions.

When Is the Next Wild Rift Champion?

With both Brand and Nunu & Willump available as of September 8, which was quite a bit sooner than we anticipated, we currently don't know which Wild Rift character will make it into the game next.
