Wild Rift Patch 2.1 Tier List: Meta discussion
1. Baron Lane
Since the release of Darius, he has maintained his top position as a Baron Lane champion. He is also regarded as the king of the top lane due to his versatility and unique skill sets. A fighter with tanking ability can be quite useful in team clashes as they can soak a lot of damage. Similarly for Wukong who is quite annoying to deal with from the early game. With a proper positioning Wukong can easily harass the enemy. Apart from that, he is a perfect champion to carry out ambushes. Malphite, one of the hard CC tanks, whenever paired up with an ADC, then it might turn a nightmare for the enemies to hold the lane.
With the invisibility of Evelynn, it is quite difficult to counter her as a Jungler as it is her role to outplay the enemy and finish them in a quick combo. Evelynn serves as a good combo with her slows and stuns, allowing her teammates to snap kills while fulfilling her role as a jungle. Considering Shyvanna, she is quite useful for slaying the dragons as she deals 20% more damage to Elemental Drakes. Must keep in mind that killing a Drake permanently empowers Shyvana’s abilities while in Dragon Form which deals massive damage. About Olaf, a Diver champion who is quite a reliable jungler due to his passive and physical damage abilities. The tier list for Junglers have changed quite a bit in this patch because of constant nerfs and adjustments. Significant changes can be observed from Amumu and Master Yi’s position.
The most crucial and rewarding lane in the game as it is the junction point of every lane’s mid. Despite being nerfed, Zed still remains in the top spot by adjusting into the meta. He is an AP damage champion completely relying on the equipment to deal damage. While snowballing from the mid to other lanes he can be quite effective in this current meta and patch. While Akali, another assassin also remains in the top tier due to her flexibility and faster map roam ability. No doubt, Orianna will always remain in the top spot if Riot does not nerf her Ultimate ability. For sure, it is the most damaging ability in the game and she scales up pretty well in the late game. Analysing the mid top tier champs, there is not much change in the arrangements of the champion.
The most useful skill set required by a support is freeing themselves from the CC of the enemy so that they can continuously provide support for their allies. Alistar does the job quite well. His 4th ability allows him to debuff himself from any CC from the enemies and gains defence too. These attributes are some of the major requirements of a support. Braum, the most tankiest champion in Wild Rift could harass the enemy as well as protect his allies until they position themselves behind him. His shield can protect the ally champions from any projectile attack and has multiple stuns. Coming to Lulu, one of the overpowered supports played in the Dragon Lane. Hard to master skills but quite rewarding later on. The best part of Lulu is, she can shield her allies as well as herself and can buff the damage and sustain of the ally champions nearby. When paired up with a fighter, they can easily dominate the lane as well as the late game
The ADC tier have experienced major changes in them as they are no doubt the most picked class and the damage dealt by them is quite high. After this patch, Miss Fortune and Kaisa are the only champions to be placed in the top tier of the list. While comparing them to the other champions the nerfs and the adjustments did not affect these champions in this meta. There is a significant drop of Draven and Jhin when compared to the previous list which came right after the patch and season update.
After looking at the tier list, it seems that the current meta is a mix of early to late game champions. In some categories, there are both early, mid as well as late game champions placed in the top tiers. This is very much about the Wild Rift tier list after the release of patch 2.1. The tier list has made much consideration from the in-game changes that have been released with the patch notes. We hope the guide helps you a lot in your journey to emerald rank.
