Help me choose a top champion

#1bandgeek09Posted 3/31/2013 9:30:45 PM
I just started playing LoL around a month ago, after just learning a smidgeon last year and getting pwned by bots. I normally play support and have gotten quite good at Sona/Soraka/Lulu. I've been wanting to branch out and not rely on being in a dual lane, so I thought I should learn a good top laner. I am decent at Darius, however with Yorick/Vlad/Nidalee all popping up quite often, I can't deal with their range.

Recommend me a good top champion for a "beginner" of solo laning (preferably with some range.)

Top Laners I have played:
Nasus, Riven, Darius, Quinn, Mundo

I basically have no melee champs in my arsenal.

Elise. Can harass with Q. Versatile champ: Can build tanky, support, or jungle. This is coming from a nub, though, so you may want to wait for expert advice.

no melee champs ? so darius and nasus and riven are " ranged" ... interesting *sarcasm*
anyway good top laners are : yorick ( you can't rly counter this guy... )
Irelia she has that sustain ... and after level 9 becomes quite tanky for dishing out huge damage having a situational stun a gap closer and on hit heal plus a ranged ult that heals her as well.
Teemo : darius' hardcounter and a real nightmare for the whole enemy team, even more so if he got fed. map control via shrooms and if built ap his shroom dishes out 800 damage ... just saying xD

Shen

Renekton/jax. Jax is one of the top 5 if not 2 or 3 best 1v1 fighters in the game after 6, is quite mobile, has aoe stun, and his ult makes him tanky while doing damage. Renekton is pretty tanky with his ult, is very mobile, has stun, and good damage.

If you want to learn the style everyone goes, though, you'll have to play real PvP games because you can't really do a solo top in a bot game.

My fall back top lane is yorick. Other than that Garen is decent. As is pantheon early/mid. You have to start building tanky after that but an early panth dishes out some damage.

Garen, Nasus and Yorrick seem pretty good top lane champions
