Meta Builds

EB24 about League of Legends #8 Itemization, Patch 9.24 - from the Booster perspective

With this new patch, we needed to create a new guide for those who love to know what's meta and so here's the best items for each champion that is on the best spots for the patch 9.24!


  • Top

For top lane, the builds for all top laners follow basically the same path, it may only vary on the enemy team but here are the best ones for:


1. Aggressive gameplay:

- Trinity Force

- Ravenous Hydra

- Black Clever

- Sterak's Gage


2. Defensive/Tanky build:

- Titanic Hydra (This shall be the first item if you're playing Shen)

- Thornmail

- Abyssal Mask

- Adaptive Helm

- Warmog's Armor



  • Jungler

On jungler, the builds may vary from champion to champion and sometimes, I can have multiple builds depending on the enemy team and how the game plays out so here are the best builds for each S and A tiers.


1. Graves:

On Graves I can do 3 different builds:


First build:

Warrior > Black Cleaver > Phantom Dancer > Infinity Edge >Deaths Dance > Boots depends


Second build:

Warrior > Drakthar > Youmu > Edge of Night > Mortal reminder > Boots depends


Third build*:

Warrior > Stormrazor > Cloak of Agility > Cloak of Agility > Cloak of Agility > Rapid fire cannon > Infinity Edge > Phantom dancer


*This build gives you 100% critical and is played by every critical champion.


2. Nidalee:

Runic Echo > Sorc boots or Oblivion Orb > Lich bane > Rabadon or Zhonya > Rabadon or Void staff


If they have more than 2 assassins (like Zed or Kha'Zix), you can go Oblivion Orb and Zhonyas. If more than 3 enemies have +120 MR, go for void Staff and not Rabadon.


3. Ekko:

Runic echos > Protobelt > Zhonyas > Lich bane > Rabadon > If they have more than 2 Hard CC champs, then buy mercs


4. Lee Sin:


Warrior > Black Cleaver > Sterak's Gage > Guardian Angel > A tank item depending on the enemy team > Boots depends too


5. Nocturne:

Warrior > Sanguine Blade > Black Cleaver > Guardian Angel > Edge of Night > Boots depends


6. Rek'Sai:

Warrior > Black Cleaver > Sterak's Gage > Guardian Angel > Depending on the game, you can either buy an offensive item or a defensive one > Boots depends too


7. Kha'Zix:

Warrior > Drakthar > Black Cleaver > Edge of Night > Guardian Angel > boots depends


8. Ornn:

Cinderhulk > Abyssal Mask > Ice Born Gauntlet

On Ornn there are 3 core items, the rest of the build will depend on the game and comp.



  • Mid

Items for most of the meta mid champions are quite similar, here are the best items:


If your champion is AP:

- Archangel's Staff& Rod of Ages (Best for Cassio, Ryze and Kassadin)

- Morellonomicon

- Zhonya's Hourglass

- Hextech Gunblade (Best for Katarina and Akali)

- Liandry's Torment (Situational item)

- Rylai's Crystal Scepter (Best for: Cassio and Aurelion)


If your champions is AD:

Lethality items are very optional and situational.


If you are ahead, you should go for:

- Youmuu's Ghostblade, Duskblade of Draktharr and finish with GA or Last Whisper


If you're behind or even:

- Duskblade of Draktharr & Edge of Night/Sanguine Blade



  • AD Carry

The builds for AD Carry can vary from champion to champion and also have situational items that you can use. Here's the list!

Once you have these core items, you can go for a situational item or another critical item.

There are two ways of building Lucian.


One way:

Botrk > Essence Reaver > Infinity Edge/Phantom Dancer/Rapid Fire Cannon


Second way:

Essence Reaver > Infinity Edge > Rapid Fire Cannon


4. Jhin:

8. Senna:

9. Aphelios:

Essence Reaver > Hurricane > Infinity Edge

Once you have these core items, you can go for a situational item or another critical item.


10. Ezreal:

Manamune > Trinity Force (Gives a lot of power) / Iceborn Gauntlet (Makes you a lot harder to kill, great against AD team comps) > Botrk > Situational Item


11. Tristana:

Stormrazor > Rapid Fire Cannon > Infinity Edge

Once you have these core items, you can go for a situational item or another critical item.


  • Situational Items

Every ADC after 2/3 core items, have to decide and build some items from the list below:


1. Maw of Malmortius

Strong vs AP Teamcomps, gives AD, CDR, MR, with a passive that gives you shield, life steal, and AD.


2. Phantom Dancer

Item that gives you AS/CRIT/MS and shield vs both types of damage, useful on ADC that builds crit items (Tristana, Aphelios, Xayah, Miss Fortune, Draven)


3. Guardian Angel

After getting killed, you respawn with 50% of your base hp, gives AD/ARMOR. It's a very good item vs strong assassins


4. Quicksilver Sash

Item that remove one CC, useful vs team comps with a lot of CC or vs CC that will kill you when you will get them (Malzahar, Leona, Warwick, works vs Mordekaiser ult as well)


5. Bloodthirster

Gives AD/life steal, passive that grants you shield, good on champions that need life steal but they depend more on AD than attack speed (Draven)


6. Lord Dominik's Regards

Gives AD/ Armor pen, good vs tanks, when you don't play a champion that has % dmg, like Kai'Sa, Kog'Maw, Vayne


7. Mortal Reminder

Gives AD/Armor pen, 10% less armor pen than Lord Dominik's, but your auto attacks apply Grievous Wounds



  • Support

Here's the best items for Support and why:


Situational Items: Doran Shield, Corruption Pots

Good sustain in lane early especially good vs poke lanes as a tank support.


Steel Shoulderguards:

Standard starting item, the extra ad helps you in the laning phase when trading and csing, plus the HP helps you out as a support tank.


Zeke's Convergence:

Zeke's keeps being the standard build for tank support since it is still strong in the meta due to the amount of damage in the game you need a hard tanky engage on your team and is usually coming from the support or jungler.


It gives both CDR and resistances plus the active damage and slow, all this makes this item pretty strong at the moment.


Knight's Vow:

Another good item that could be a starter if the enemy team has a full ad comp, it gives CDR armor and HP and the ability to link is really useful to keep your carries alive.


Locket of the Iron Solari:

Usually the 2-3 item after the other 2 mentioned above, it gives heavy MR and the active shield to prevent damage for you and your teammates.

You always wanna build this after some HP and resistances unless you really in need for some heavy MR early.


Mobility Boots:

Essential support item to rush since you no longer need to invest money on the support item, it is really easy to rush it on the early game.


Mercury boots:

It's usually the best combination with Zeke's if the enemy team has a decent amount of magic damage and CC. You don't wanna rush Locket of the Iron Solari as 1st item.


Ninja Tabi: Useful against heavy ad-team comps, especially in combination with Knights Vow.


And this is it! The best items and builds for all the best champions in the meta at the moment. Not something out of the world but surely a great help for those who want to improve. Some think the building doesn't affect the game, but now more than ever, the items you build, affects your game big time!
