Top lane Tier list

#1edubsPosted 11/17/2012 5:27:27 PM
So Ive recently been playing some bruisers top lane (J4 and Wukong) and I love them. I main mid but I wanted to branch out. So does anyone have opinions (or a source) on the best and worst common top lane picks? I also play a little jax and kayle top

Riven, Wukong, Jax, Irelia, Renekton, Xin Zhao, Shen, Olaf, in no particular order. Jayce and Kayle both are also very strong. And if you want AP/tanky AP tops you can never go wrong with Vlad, Elise, Cho'Gath and Singed.

Though some of those are arguably better in the jungle and Shen is banned extremely frequently at most ELOs, they are all pretty common.

Overall, Jax and Irelia are usually the safest picks, though I would argue that Wukong is the strongest mid-game top and Renekton is indisputably the strongest early-game top. All depends on what you enjoy and what you're good with, as well as what is a better counter to the enemy top.
