Hey summoners! Season is wrapping up and last changes for 12.21 aren’t really going to the Solo Q meta, besides Bel’Veth nerfs and Ahri buffs, and in preparation for your last push of the season we’re gonna give you the Five Best Supports for Low Elo to Climb in LoL.
Besides knowing which are the best champions, you need to know about the optimal runes/items and how they fit your current ranked lobby or game plan. For that, you can check our SenpAI champion page to look at the information like their best runes, items, and even tips to level up your game.
5 Top Support Elo picks to climb in League of Legends Patch 12.20
Disclaimer: The info for this top was based on the SenpAI data for champions. It collects data from all regions.
To start this list, our 5th pick is the Fallen, Morgana. Despite not receiving any type of buffs, this support has escalated to now have a 51,05% Win rate and an impressive 49.08% Ban rate in low elo.
The reason she’s here is tied to changes in meta, favoring more poke and harass type of support. Making Morgana’s Black Shield (E) a great addition for laners, also with her Tormented Shadows (W) she provides much needed pushing power to keep at bay more stronger supports on this same list.
Even if she is having much success, her ban rate makes it really hard to show in games. But if she’s open, remember that she’s really insane. Be sure to hit your Dark Bindings (Q).
Good combo: Caitlyn+Morgana.
The beloved Sad Mummy is in the 4th spot. Odd enough, in a meta of poke-mageish supports, he is finding success. Maybe, because his all ins with Bandage toss (Q) and Curse of the Sad Mummy (Ultimate) are pretty strong, or how he combos with Miss Fortune and some of the strongest bot lane picks of the patch.
Right now, he currently holds a 52.67% Win rate in Low Elo.
The Sad Mummy is a great and easy pick for Low elo. Therefore, if you’re more fond of engage champions that are more active, be sure to pick him up ahead of season ending.
A lot of patches have gone since the Burning Vengeance got changes, being the last one actually nerfs. But, with the return of mage support, he’s still one of the strongest in that role.
Brand is the typical champion played by off role mid laners, because of how he can take over games. And it’s not surprising, that even when played as support, that he’s the champion with the most DMG at the end.
Even if he has a high burst and killing threat, he suffers from not having reliable utility. Brand only form of “hard cc”, it’s his Ablaze bonus Stun with Sear (Q), or the slow from Pyroclasm (Ultimate).
Even though the Burning Vengeance has this drawback, he’s still one of the stronger solo carry supports in the game. Thus making him a really strong third pick for your end of season games.
The Magus Ascendant, or one of the MOST annoying champs to face as support, is having great success. The change of meta, and nerfs to engage supports (that heavily counters him), has prepared the perfect storm for the return of this Shuriman mage.
Right now, Xerath holds a notable 53.69% Win rate. Paired along with picks like Caitlyn, if you combo Xerath’s Shocking Orb (E) with Caitlyn’s Traps, is usually a death sentence for whoever falls victim to it.
His annoying laning, with his wide array thrown skillshots like his Arcanopulse (Q), and Eye of Destruction (W), or the capacity to snipe you with Rite of the Arcane (Ultimate) shots, makes him powerful, especially facing squishies.
Despite, he’s a really strong pick right now, he’s prone to fall to very mobile champions.
When playing the Magus Ascendant, you need to learn everything about your combos, ways to force mistakes to hit skillshot, and avoid risky situations. Yet, if piloted properly Xerath is a champ that takes over games.
The first pick in our list belongs to the Rise of the Thorns. After good quality of life changes in patch 12.16 , she’s been garnering more success, and right now holds a 54.1% wr in patch 12.20.
Although she may lack range compared to Xerath, or engage like Amumu, she leverages that by offering control and huge burst dps. Unlike Xerath that can be threatened from a Blitzcrank Hook, Zyra’s plant lets her avoid those, also she has consistent and push and more even dmg. Remember Brand and his damage? Well, Zyra has more damage and more reliable CC to provide utility for teams.
Zyra’s biggest drawback, besides having low health, is that it requires knowing combos and ways to use plants to your advantage. There is a huge difference between a good Zyra and a great one.
This makes our Five Best Support Low Elo Lane picks to climb. As you may noticed, the low elo list its mostly made of poke support, but that’s because these are the very best ways to win in low elo.
Wish you good luck in last games of the season. Keep your temper. See ya!
