Zac is extremely versatile and works in both the top lane and Jungle, with great tank abilities.

This slime monster’s size will change depending on his health and can split into chunks that can apply all sorts of useful effects on enemies.


Fiddlesticks is a champion you should look into trying once you’re a bit more familiar with the game.

They specialize in the Jungle, remaining a popular pick despite a number of nerfs over the years, hitting a 53% win rate.

They cast a number of debuffs, slowing enemies and obscuring their sight, which allows them to control the enemy’s path and lets other champions capitalize.


Tristana has been growing in popularity recently, as she’s seen some buffs in the latest patches that have made her very viable.

Beginner players will enjoy this bottom-lane champion, as she’s on sweeping duties, with powerful attacks that wipe the floor with enemies.

She’s designed to stay at range too, meaning new players won’t have to worry about getting caught in the heat of the action.


Once you’ve got a fair amount of time in the game and feel like you have a good understanding of the flow of a match, you should try Anivia out.
