EB24 about League of Legends #18 Current meta, Patch 10.4 - from the Booster perspective

New patch, new guide! More information and new changes that might (or not) affect your preferred role! Take a look below and make sure you pay attention to everything!


  • Top

With the new patch there are pretty major changes to the tier list. Moving Darius and Ornn to S tier list since they popping off really hard now. Darius got a semi jungle buff but it actually allows him to heal off monsters in lane phase and with upcoming changes to his passive he might even counter jungle easily.


Ornn with the best Sunfire damage in-game by far is also a huge buff to his kit. Another champions popping off are Poppy, Kayle and not so noticeable - Shyvana. The meta of the top lane has become more mid-late game related so most picks on the top lane are rather scaling picks than a quick dominator. Another champion that I’ve noticed that might be back is Gragas with e max on top as he is a really strong champion himself and along with 45% cdr and Sunfire he is melting champions.



  • Jungler

For this patch, we have a little Amumu buff which makes no difference in my opinion. The buffs on Talon, Diana, Darius, Gnar, Garen, Zed and Mordekaiser is pointless. These buffs don't make them a jungler. It's just easy to farm the jungle in the later stages of the game. So for this patch, I think the tier list stays the same. But for the next patch, I think tank junglers will be meta.

  • Mid

Patch 10.4 was quite a big one. It brought us a few changes into the mid lane. The playstyle is still the same and I think it will be permanently like this until the meta doesn't change to a control one. We can't tell if the change on Sunfire Cape will make mid laners go in a different style but we will it see in the following week. Maybe Sunfire Riven or Galio… Aurelion received a little nerf, I would rather call it to adjust cause still, the champion has a lot of roaming potential and catches with his big Q.


Lux received some buffs but this matchup is still free for late-game monsters and roaming champs. At least while playing Lux you can now make some flash + R plays.


Sylas received a 20 dmg buff which is another adjustment. Meanwhile, the champion I am curious about is Jayce. He received a huge mana buff and hammer q damage which can make him a very solid pick. Especially into control matchups or assassins cause he has poke and wave clear with an all-in potential. His only weakness is a vulnerability for ganks. The weirdest change in this patch is Zed and talon jungle option. From my point of view its just a buff for them in the mid lane. They can now push the lane and roam when their roam is not settled they can just take enemy jungle for more exp and gold which is now quicker due to their jungle adjustment. When we sum everything together we can see there are not so many changes.




As we can see the tier list we can highlight:

Le Blanc: She is a great 1 target champion with a high snowball potential. I think she is one of the best picks for current meta because of Ekko, Lee Sin and Elise dominance in the jungle, so if you duo with Elise there is no way enemy mid can escape from your chain followed by jungler cc or burst and everybody knows what feed lb can do.


Talon: Still probably the best roaming champion in the game. You just can't escape from him and now he received an option to jungle quicker. If u are playing talon and have pressured you can now just try to catch enemy jungler on low hp and if u cant find him its not a big deal, just clear his camps with Tiamat + spells.


Qiyana: For me, she will be the best champ at mid lane until she receives a huge nerf or objectives such as drake and herald won't be a big deal. She is basically Talon with more cc and poke at the lane in the early stages of the game. She received jungle nerf for passive attack speed but it doesn't matter on mid lane at all.


Yasuo: After Soraka and Sona nerf the top lane is back for tanky picks with a lot of cc. Yasuo is a champ that loves to have in the team some AP tank CC top laners. I personally think that Yasuo will be played more and more often due to the dominance of Ornn at the top lane. He is good with Maokai, Malphite, Sett, Lee Sin, Zac, Gragas, and those champs are better than average nowadays.


We rather come back to Phase Rush from Conqueror for Cassio and Ryze. (Runes #3)

Runes #1 are for Talon, Ekko, Fizz, Qiyana, Syndra, LeBlanc.

Runes #2 are for Kassadin, Katarina, Diana, Sylas, Yasuo.

  • ADC

Since the last Patch, the ADC meta only changed in 2 things:

- Aphelios got a nerf that made him go to A Tier

- Cait got a 10% more Attack Speed buff at 1 Level



  • Support

Current meta focus on either early game dominance or scaling bot lane duos, either you destroy your opponent and get leads by getting plates turrets drakes and rifts or you hold the lanes and scale.


Hard engage supports to follow by defensive supports are still the main meta gives the strongest ADC's atm are team fight oriented champions.

the rise of ranged supports got halved with the nerfs on solo lane Sona and Soraka, still, Soraka support got overall buff, but I still prefer the standard engage supports in the bot lane.




S-Tier Supports:

Standard go-to pick champions they work on any team comp most of the time as their main engage for the team. Leona and Nautilus are pretty much the same with the only difference is Leona being stronger early and nautilus late, Thresh is the hardest of the 4 to play but can do really well vs the other 3 if you use flay properly plus lantern is really good to peel off, Rakan can engage and disengage but he is not as tanky as the other 3, plus he is the only one with sustain and hard disengage.


A-tier Supports:

Specific team comps and counter picks for the s tier they can still function but you need to think if they can work with the team comp or vs the enemy team comp, while Tahm Kench is really good counter vs hard engage, Braum is decent vs specific poke team comps, while Taric is really good into all s tiers, you need specific champions in the bot lane to be able to use his full power and all enchanters need good ADC and jungler focus to succeed in lane most of the time.
