Kha's pretty good, Zed's a good safe pick(so-so early game, but scales crazy hard).

Elise has been nerfed a couple times, and the nerfs were genuinely unpleasant too, nerfing her Q's mana cost and base damage. Still, she's probably a good toplaner in most matchups anyways. Still, if you're at the ranked elo where she's banned a lot, you're better off not buying her.

Pretty sure Elise hasn't gotten off the nerf train yet. They've nerfed her twice and I believe we'll see something of hers hit every patch until she's too weak (right now even with the changes on the PBE she should still be okay, though 625 range on Q hurts).


I wouldn't risk the IP.

Kha'Zix seems to have slipped out of fotm and doesn't look to be nerfed soon. You could give him a try.

Zed is hard to master, will take a lot of practice. Of all the energy champions he's the one where the resource is truly constricting and you actually have to manage it. Further than that I feel like he has to position a lot like an ad carry, very safe until very very late when you can start getting bulky items after the damage you bought.

If you don't have Jayce, he's a beast and should be someone you look into. He takes a while to learn too but he's great for ranked.

Elise's damage and range is getting nerfed next patch, meaning she won't be able to win her lane as hard as before.

Kha is super strong and a fairly good pick against most popular tops.

Zed is getting looked at and is currently being watched by Riot, so becareful with that. He's still good though, just takes a few games to master him.

yeah there still nerfing Elise I think the range and dmg if it goes through will be killer for her.
But she is fun as hell, any hero with extra abilities always feels a bit better to me.

Hopefully the patch will make people cry over-nerf and result in her being banned less because she'll still be amazing. Being able to use 6 skills by lv3 (realistically you'll want to get Q to lv2 first so lv4) is so good.

nerfs incoming. Will probably still be a permaban but you never know what people will do.

A good pick if you want to buy a tear and hide under your tower. Kha sucks balls top. Hes much better off going mid, pretty much all the bruisers poop on him. Nice squishy mid to pick on, on the other hand, is a beautiful thing.

Guess you don't know how to play Kha'Zix, then.
