Several players underestimate the support role in League of Legends. However, professional players and even coaches always reiterate the role’s importance in making or breaking any match. This role wields the strongest control on vision, one of the most vital game elements.
In this post, SenpAI highlights 5 best support champions who perform exceptionally in the late game. Our list features two damage-oriented supports and three utility-focused enchanters.
However, this list is not absolute, as there are others who also excel in the later stages of the game. That said, let’s dive right in!
Brand does one thing perfectly well, which is incinerating enemies. The champion has little to no utility to offer but makes up for it in sheer damage and teamfight proficiency. Unlike other champions in this list, the Burning Vengeance has a decent laning phase and can even be a bully in some matchups.
However, he begins to shine after completing his first mythic because this is when his burn damage starts hitting hard. His R – Pyroclasm excels when cast in the midst of grouped-up champions, making it perfect for late game fights.
Finally, Brand’s abilities also have extra effects that activate if the target is still affected by any of his abilities, creating excellent opportunities for high-burst combos.
With one of the strongest synergizes with any hyper-carry in the game, Lulu can disrupt enemies while empowering allies to perform better. The Fae Sorceress brings several utilities, including a slow shield, move and attack speed buff, and even size increase!
Experienced players opt for picking off Lulu first before going on her carry because doing otherwise can yield disastrous results.
Every support main should check out this champion as she represents everything an ADC needs in the late game.
Some champions stack one thing or the other throughout the course of a game, growing stronger in the process. Senna is another example of such a champion. Also known as The Redeemer, she collects souls from slain enemies, minions, and monsters to permanently gain damage and crit chance increase. Senna’s stacks do not have a cap, making it potentially possible to keep scaling the longer the game goes.
Asides from her healing, she can also damage enemies with the same ability, killing two birds with one stone. With a damage-oriented kit, support Senna can deal surprising levels of damage to enemies, providing her team with an extra carry.
When it comes to a perfect support kit, Sona has it all. The champion heals, speeds allies up, provides shields, stuns, and amplifies ally damage. Surprisingly, players underestimate this champion until the late game, when it becomes too late.
The Maven of the Strings can act as a team’s engage, even though she performs optimally in the midst of allies. She also gains increasing levels of cooldown reduction, allowing her to spam much-needed utility for her team.
We believe Yuumi needs no introduction because everyone has encountered her usefulness at one time or the other. The champion has the strongest late game healing, second only to Soraka and can even exceed that in some situations.
The Magical Cat excels at buffing allies and keeping them alive in the most hopeless of situations. Her untargetability is another source of frustration for enemies. The reason is that players generally go after a team’s healer first, but in Yuumi’s case, you can only attack her if she detaches from an ally or the ally dies.
Yuumi might look harmless, but she is strong enough to support her team to victory.
We have come to the end of SenpAI’s best late game champions. Other honorable mentions include Soraka, Renata Glasc, and Thresh.
