With the exception of Galio and Blitzcrank this list is a bunch of super squishy mages. Get a team of 5 of those and you're as good as dead.

Tanky champions with CC paired with 2-3 squishy damage dealers (preferably with poke) win ARAMs. Amumu especially.


No, if you take the top 5 from my list, tanky CC can't even approach effectively without getting completely shut down. Amumu trying to bandage toss would simply get tornadoed before doing anything, then snared + burst.

What do you do when faced with two choices? Simply toss a coin. It works because in that brief time that the coin is in the air you know what you're hoping for.

Alistar is the freaking bane of my existence in ARAM for this exact reason.

Clearly you've never been hard engaged on in an ARAM. Have fun dealing with Maokai, Pantheon, Shen, Volibear...

I would put top ten as

1. Heimerdinger: Can stonewall against 3 champs easily, heals turret + entire team, crazy poke.
2. Ziggs: Most spammy damaging poke in the game, great zoning, awesome aoe damage
3. Lux: AoE shield, snare to set up initiations, strong aoe poke
4. Janna: Great counter engage, easy pressure, excellent heal, passive doesnt hurt
5. Anivia: Incredible zoning, great DPS, alright poke that can set up initiation
6. Lissandra: THE intiator. Strong poke
7. Sona: Teamwide auras, heals, alright poke, great intiation ult.
8. Nasus: Built AP farms creeps (and forces enemies under tower) like no other. Q for lichbane, R for AoE % dmg
9. Xerath: Godlike poke, though little else
10. Nidalee: Strong poke, hard to catch, heals for teammates, bush control.

Champs I feel dont quite make it but should be top 20: Soraka, Viktor, Ashe, Trist, Karthus, Kayle


I tend to prioritize: Anti push > AoE teamsupport > Poke > intiation set up/initiation > CC/Zoning > DPS

I'm really not sure how you'd beat team of the top 5... The AOE poke would drop anyone from 100-0 from out of range, anivia + janna would stop any and all initiation, and heimer can just stop pushes all day unless you kill the other four with 0 casualties.

I like it.

Sorry to everyone having difficulty narrowing things down to a top 10. You need to make choices, and I know it's hard.

To reiterate, this isn't actually a tier list, nor does this take into account any team composition.

No Nami? She's amazing in ARAM solid heal that is bound to bounce between targets, a strong ult, and her stun is awesome in ARAM it's pretty eay to land.

She's not spectacular in Summoner's Rift but she's downright amazing in ARAM

Swain is GOD TIER on ARAM

His snare and ult are absolutely ****ing nasty on this teamfight-centric map

Honestly I don't know what to do with suggestions if they don't also include what to replace in the top 30. Even if I do form an idea of who they should replace, did you?

Hard engage against JUST a good anivia on the opponents team is a death wish, you add janna, lux, heimerdinger and ziggs and you'd get aced without 1 of them dead. Their combined ability to kite is way to much for any team to handle.
